I really love the snow. Mostly because I live in Arizona and don’t have to deal with it unless I choose to go up to the mountain to go skiing. Most years our family will venture up into the White Mountains for a weekend of skiing. This year we will not be going due to the Pandemic and the fact that there is very little snow. Arizona is currently in a drought. However, I decided to create a nice snowy forest scene for the Let It Snow Challenge. For this card I used stamps from Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods, Very Versailles and Snowflake Wishes stamp sets.
The snowy scene I created uses 3 layers on a base of Shaded Spruce Card Stock (CS). The first layer is a Basic White CS stamped in Shaded Spruce ink with the large tree in the Winter Woods stamp set. The center tree is stamped at full strength and the two trees in the back are Stamped Off. The little snowflakes on this first layer are from Snowflake Wishes and are stamped in Balmy Blue ink. The inside of the card is also stamped in the large tree and small snowflakes along the right-hand edge.
The second layer is the retired Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper cut out with one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. This is adhered to the back of a Basic White CS cut with a larger Stitched Nested Labels Die.
The top layer is also Basic White CS, cut from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and is stamped with several different stamps from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set. The Stampin’ Up! ink colors are: Balmy Blue, Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather. The sentiment is from the Very Versailles stamp set and is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink. The final touch is the 3 die-cut snowflakes in the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.

Hello and Happy New Year! I do not think I am alone in being extremely excited to leave 2020 behind! I truly hope for a much better 2021! On that note I decided to create a New Year’s card with the Dove of Hope stamp set by Stampin’ Up!® and it is a Fun Fold!
The Dove of Hope stamp set by Stampin’ Up!® is another one of my favorite stamps from the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. I love the versatility of the dove which could be used all year long for wishing a Happy New Year, religious celebrations (baptism, communion, confirmation), weddings and to just share some peace, joy and love.
The Dove of Hope stamp set is retiring but is still available until January 4, 2021. You may click HERE to purchase it. I also used the “Happy New Year” sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set which is in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog HERE
Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches with a score line at 3 1/4 inches; Pacific Point CS: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches and 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches; Coastal Cabana CS: 3 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches; the Brights Designer Series Paper* (DSP): 1) Coastal Cabana DSP: 3 x 5 1/4 inches and 2) Pacific Point DSP: 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches; and Whisper White CS: two at 3 x 3 inches and 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches. (*find out how you can get this paper at the end of the blog)
Start off by stamping the dove in Pacific Point ink onto one of the 3 x 3 inch Whisper White CS. Add some snowflakes in Coastal Cabana ink. Some of the snowflakes are full strength and others are Stamped Off. This helps to add dimension to your card.
Switching back to the Pacific Point ink, stamp the “Peace Joy Love” sentiment onto the 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Whisper White CS.
In order to use just the part of the sentiment that says “And A Happy New Year” you will need a Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Marker. Color the bottom part of the sentiment, huff on it to moisten it a little, and stamp onto the other 3 x 3 inch Whisper White CS.
Putting it all together
Starting with the inside of the card, adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Pacific Point CS to the inside panel of the Whisper White CS card base. Now adhere the 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch Pacific Point DSP to the right hand side.
To finish the inside, adhere the 3 x 3 inch Whisper White CS with the “Happy New Year” sentiment as shown.
Moving on to the card front, adhere the Coastal Cabana DSP to the Coastal Cabana CS. Then adhere the Coastal Cabana card piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card base.
To complete the card front, adhere the dove card piece to the 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch Pacific Point CS and the “Peace Joy Love” sentiment to the 7/8 x 2 7/8 inch Pacific Point CS.
Taking card to place the adhesive only on the left hand side, adhere the dove card piece to the card front. Be mindful of the placement so that the white panel underneath does not show around the dove card piece.
Lastly, apply adhesive to the left hand side of the sentiment and adhere it to the card front.
And Viola! Here’s hoping for more Peace, Joy and Love in 2021!

Hello fellow crafters! The Freezin’ Fun stamp set is one of my personal favorites from the 2020 August-December Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. It is still available! But not for long. It will be one of the stamp sets retiring on January 4, 2021.
Late December and January is definitely Freezin’! We usually go up to the mountains and spend a couple of days skiing. Probably won’t go this year. It is a lot of fun though!
Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Misty Moonlight CS: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches; Magenta Madness CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Whisper White CS: 3 3/4 x 5 inches, 2 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches and 2 1/2 x 6 inches.
Use the Memento Black ink to stamp one each of the Freezin’ Fun characters and several trees.
Sponging the Snowdrifts
First cut a wavy line through the 2 1/2 x 6 inch Whisper White CS. This will be the mask for the snowdrifts.
Secure the mask with Sticky Note tape or Painters Tape. Dab the Sponge Dauber onto the Misty Moonlight ink pad. Using a circular motion, try the sponging out on the scrap paper, then continuing to use a small circular motion apply the ink along the edge of the mask. Apply more ink to the Sponge Dauber as needed.
Move the mask to the lower left hand quadrant and Sponge Daub another snowdrift, then move it to the right for one last snowdrift.
Subsequently apply the other side of the snowdrift mask to the bottom of the inside of the Whisper White CS card base. Resume the Sponge Daubing as before.
I felt that the background was too white and uninteresting so I used the Sponge Dauber to color the sky so it would look like a cloudy winter sky.
Coloring the Images
Now for the fun! I love using these Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers because they allow you to color with shadows so easily. The colors used today are: the Light and Dark of Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight, Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider which are the In Colors for 2020-2022. Also used are the Light and Dark Smoky Slate, Light Basic Black and Dark Pumpkin Pie.
Color the images as desired. Some tips: For the smaller spaces I use the Dark color first where I want the shadow, then blend in the Light color. Try to color lightly so that the ink doesn’t bleed over the lines. If this happens, there is a Color Lifter that can be used to correct it.
Now to fussy cut everything. If you have a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine there are Freezin’ Friends dies you can use. If not, sit down to a little tv and fussy cut. I find it to be very meditative.
Creating the Scene
Initially, place the two little trees on the top of the snowdrifts and adhere them to the card front. Secondly, put in place the images you would like to use and adhere them with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Next put in place the images you want to use on the inside of the card and adhere them. Lastly, add the happy penguin with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Adding the Sentiment
Stamp the sentiments “‘Tis the season for freezin'” and “Wheeeee!!” in the Misty Moonlight ink onto the card front. Then stamp the sentiment “Sending warmth your way” on the inside of the card.
Putting it Together
First adhere the stamped card front to the Magenta Madness CS, then to the Misty Moonlight CS. Next adhere the two to the front of the Whisper White CS card base.
Viola! You have the cutest card for the cold winter weather!
Thanks for coming by today! I hope you can stay warm and spend some quality time crafting!

Wow! Christmas is almost here! It seems I have been making Christmas cards forever! Today’s Stampin’ Up!® Merry Moose Christmas Cards are very special because they are for my customers. I love my customers! They are the life of my business. With this in mind, the Stampin’ Up!® Statement of the Heart is really true for me “To love what we do and share what we love as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments, in this we make a difference.”
The Merry Moose stamp set and Moose Punch are just so fun! And the “Merry Christmoose” sentiment adds a little humor. The background for the card is from the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (DSP). So, let’s get started!
Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 /12 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Pretty Peacock CS: 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 inches and 7/8 x 3 7/8 inches; Feels Like Frost DSP: 3 3/4 x 5 inches; Whisper White CS: 3/4 x 3 7/8 inches; Soft Suede CS: 3 x 4 inches and Cherry Cobbler CS: 1 1/2 x 2 inches. Alternatively, on some cards I used Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Highland Heather and Shaded Spruce in place of the Pretty Peacock.
Starting with the Soft Suede ink, stamp the inside of the Whisper White CS card base with the little racoon and then with the sentiment “enjoy the stillness of the season”. Similarly, stamp the moose onto the Soft Suede CS on one side. Note: Remember to use a catalog, magazine, or the Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get a great image with the Photopolymer Stamps.
Switching to the Cherry Cobbler ink, stamp the sentiment “Merry Chrismoose” onto the right hand side of the 3/4 x 3 7/8 inch Whisper White CS. Continuing with the Cherry Cobbler ink stamp the scarf onto the Cherry Cobbler CS.
Putting it all Together
Fussy cut the scarf and then use the Moose Punch to punch out the moose. Next use adhesive to adhere the scarf to the moose, and the sentiment strip to the 7/8 x 3 7/8 inch Pretty Peacock CS.
Apply adhesive to the Feels Like Frost DSP and then adhere it to the Pretty Peacock CS. Next adhere the card piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card base. To top it off add the sentiment strip.
Complete the card by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the moose to the card front on the sentiment strip.
Viola! You have made a fun Christmas card! I am trying to send one to every customer. If I perchance miss you, please leave me a comment or PM me on my Facebook page HERE.

Today’s card is pretty simple but festive. The Stampin’ Up! Tree Angle stamp set has several trees to choose from. I just love the bold sentiment “Joy & Cheer”. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the ‘Tis The Season DSP which is currently on sale at 20% off HERE.
Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Cherry Cobbler CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Whisper White CS: 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 inches, 3 x 5 inches; Shaded Spruce CS: 1 1/4 x 5 1/8 inches; and ‘Tis the Season DSP: 11/2 x 5 1/8 inches.
Using Cherry Cobbler ink, stamp the sentiment “Happy wishes to you and yours” on the inside panel of the Whisper White CS card base. Stamp the sentiment “Joy & Cheer” onto the lower right-hand corner of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. Note: Use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or a catalog with the Photopolymer stamps to get the best image.
Stamp the medium tree in Cherry Cobbler ink on the middle of the 3 x 5 inch Whisper White CS. Turn the card piece 180 degrees. Stamp the other 2 trees in Shaded Spruce ink as shown.
Fussy Cut all of the trees.
Adhere the ‘Tis the Season DSP to the Shaded Spruce CS. Adhere the “Joy & Cheer” card piece to the Cherry Cobbler CS, then to the front of the Whisper White CS card base. Tip: Use the Silicone Craft Sheet to keep from getting glue on your table.
Adhere the Shaded Spruce CS/’Tis the Season DSP to the card front. Adhere the Shaded Spruce tree as shown.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the last two trees as shown.
Time for the Bling! The Star Designer Elements are in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog HERE.
Add one star to the top of each tree.
Viola! You have a nice traditional Christmas card to wish some Joy & Cheer to someone special.

The theme for the cards today is: Thank You. I have many customers who support me and I like to send them a Thank You card every once in awhile. The following set of cards is for my awesome customers. These are thank you notes to send for anyone who orders during the month of December.
This thank you card is super easy and quick to make. You will need to emboss a 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White Card Stock (CS) with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. Next punch a bunch of trees with the Pine Tree Punch from the ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper (DSP). The last piece is the “thanks” which is cut out with the Well Written Dies. The colors are: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Real Red.
I adhered the trees with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is adhered with Tombow. An afterthought was that you could cut the sentiment out with an Adhesive Sheet which would make it easier to adhere it to the card front.

Wow! I can’t believe how fast the time is going! 11 days until Christmas! I still need to get my cards out. I have them all made, the letter is written, I just need to put the letter and card in an envelope and address them. That is my goal for today.
This is an easy Fun Fold using the Snowflake Wishes stamp set and Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. You can put this card together quickly and have a festive winter card ready to send out in no time.
This lovely wintery card is great for showcasing your Designer Series Paper. I know I have quite a stash. Pick out 3 different designs of the Snowflake Splendor DSP.
Measurements: Pool Party Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 11 inches with score lines at 1 3/8 inch, 4 1/8 inches and 6 7/8 inches; Pool Party CS belly band: 1 1/4 x 10 inches scored at 3 1/2 inches and 7 5/8 inches; Snowflake Splendor DSP: two at 1 1/8 x 5 1/4 inches, 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches and 3 7/8 x 5 1/4 inches; and Whisper White CS: 2 1/2 x 4 inches, 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches and 3/4 x 4 inches. You will also need 10 inches of the 1/4 inch Snowflake Splendor Ribbon to adhere to the belly band, and you will need a bow.
With Bermuda Bay ink stamp the sentiment “May Your Season Sparkle” onto the 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. Use Pool Party ink to stamp the group of small snowflakes on the corners. Note: Remember to use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or a catalog to stamp on with the Photopolymer Stamps to be sure to get the best images.
Use the Bermuda Bay ink to stamp the sentiment “Snowflake Wishes For a Merry Christmas” onto the 3/4 x 4 inch strip of Whisper White CS. Use Pool Party ink to stamp a snowflake onto the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Whisper White CS. Use the 2 1/4 inch Circle Punch to punch out the snowflake. Set aside.
Fold the Pool Party CS card base as shown. Use your Bone Folder to make all of the folds nice and crisp. Lay the card flat on the table.
Adhere one of the 1 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch pieces of the Snowflake Splendor DSP on the front flap.
Open the card and lay flat on the table. Adhere the other 1 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch piece of Snowflake Splendor DSP to the other side of the front flap. Next adhere the 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch Snowflake Splendor DSP and then the 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS with the sentiment stamped on it.
Finish with the 3 7/8 x 5 1/4 inch Snowflake Splendor DSP on the last panel.
Fold the card up again and wrap the 1 1/4 x 10 inch Pool Party CS around the card snuggly. This is the belly band. You want it to slide off easily but not fall off. Adhere the end in front.
Cut a banner end on both ends of the sentiment and adhere to the lower portion of the belly band.
Wrap the 10-inch piece of the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon around the belly band and glue in place with the ends meeting in front. Adhere the snowflake with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon bow with glue dots.
There are a lot of Bling! possibilities for this card to make it sparkle. I used both the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the Snowflake Adhesive-Backed Embellishments.
I placed the light blue Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the center of and around the large snowflake, then added the Snowflake Embellishments to the background.
Viola! You have a beautiful Fun Fold for sending Christmas Wishes!
