Welcome to September's Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Fancy Fold cards. 
I went searching for Fancy Fold cards for inspiration and found one from Brenda Quintana that she calls the Pull Out Fancy Fold card. It was really easy to create and there are many options for die cutting the see through part. My card uses the Layering Circles to die cut the hole and the greeting but you could use the Stitched Rectangle dies, the Stitched Nested dies or even the Layering Squares or Ovals dies!
Here is the card pulled out so you can see the fancy fold part. The Shaded Spruce card base is a regular size - 8.5" x 5.5" scored in half on the long side. Cut the Whisper White cardstock to 8" x 5.25", then score at 4" and 6" on the long side to create the 2 folding panels on the right. One of the panels is covered with a piece of Plaid Tidings designer series paper. I've stamped the sentiment on the circle in Basic Gray and coloured the ivy using the Shaded Spruce Stampin' Blends.

Welcome to my blog and December's Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop celebrating Holidays! With Christmas around the corner I pulled some pictures from December 2014 that were in pockets without the page being finished. I seem to say that a lot lately! But it's true! The pictures are printed and are waiting for me to go back and fill in the gaps with pretty paper and stamps. In January I will be working on filling in my gaps and sharing my scrapbooking journey here on my blog and over on www.Instagram.com/FromWhereIStamp. Follow me over on Instagram to see what I'm up to!
I put this Christmas Countdown project kit together a few weeks ago live on Facebook. So love how it turned out and I look forward to filling it with Ferrero Rocher so that I can countdown to Christmas! During my Facebook live, which you can watch below, I used different stamps than the suggested Christmas Countdown stamp set - the Nature's Beauty and Merry Moose stamp sets. But did use the ink colours they suggested, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Mossy Meadow. This kit can be assembled without a stamp set as well as there was quite a few die-cut pieces leftover.

The boxes are 2" cubes and can hold many different items. The boxes do come out of the cubby-hole easily so you could decorate the back of them for another countdown - Easter, birthday or other fun event! There is still time to order this project kit - it would arrive the first part of December to you but then you can enjoy the chocolate for multiple days all at once!


Make sure to join me on Thursday evenings at 7pm Eastern for my weekly Facebook Live: www.Facebook.com/FromWhereIStamp

Unfortunately the Moose punch is no longer available, it has been a very popular item! But the Merry Moose stamp set can still be purchased. I wanted to share this card with you still though, you can fussy cut the moose fairly easily or stamp them onto the Whisper White card stock and then die cut the oval - it will look different than my card but still cute!

Each moose is coloured with 2 different ink colours - Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake - but stamped off before stamping over the lined image. I cut off the antlers off one moose after all the stamping. You could also mask the antlers before stamping to achieve the same effect.

I had fun creating this swap card for November's Team Meeting. For this card I used the beautiful Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. One side of this designer series paper is silver foil while the other is beautiful photographic images.

Plaid Moose

November 09, 2019 in , ,
We created this card at last month's Cards & Chocolate event. I cased this card from one I saw on Pinterest but the photo I saved doesn't have anyone's name on it - thank you to the one who gave me inspiration! The Buffalo Check is a perfect pairing to the Merry Moose bundle. The moose might be my most used stamp set right now!

This card is so fun and easy to make! The snowmen are already decorated and ready to attach to a card! You can find these designs in the Let It Snow specialty designer series paper. The designer series paper was cut at 2-3/4" in height and then at 5-1/2" wide. You can get 8 cards from each 12"x12" sheet for a total of 16 cards using this snowman design.

The Brightly Gleaming Specialty designer series paper is beautiful with the Copper foil accents. This card has very little stamping and takes advantage of the beautiful designer series paper and the Gleaming Ornaments punch pack. The Stitched Rectangle dies were used to cut out the Whisper White main panel - the stitching gives this panel a little pop.

This moose is so adorable! Our team had an in-person holiday card swap at the team meeting on Sunday and I created this card for the swap. Now I have 7 cards for inspiration from team members that I will share them on social media soon.

For this card I decided to use the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper. The picture above doesn't do the paper justice! It has sparkle on one side of some of the designs and coordinates with the Snowman Season stamp set and the Let It Snow Suite. But the sheet I used was perfect to give the feel of snow on the ground or falling snow. Both the moose filled image and the tree are stamped off first to give a lighter look to both. And if you saw my post last month about needing some Real Red ribbon it was for this card! I didn't have any matching ribbon so I used the Real Red Dark Blend to colour the Scalloped Lace Trim before adhering it to my card.

Supplies
Stamps: Merry Moose
Colours: Real Red, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Moose Punch, Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper, Pine Wood Plank embossing folder, Real Red Dark Stampin' Blend, Stitched Labels die, Scalloped Lace Trim, Red rhinestones Basic Jewels, Vellum cardstock

Welcome to our September Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop and our theme of Bundles! So much excitement with the new 2019 Holiday catalogue products being available this week. There are 25 new bundles in this new catalogue! And the best thing about bundles is the 10% savings when you purchase the items together using one item number! I decided to create a pocket page layout using the Perfectly Plaid bundle - a photopolymer stamp set and punch.
A quick Christmas card that has many layers! I had fun creating this card Thursday night and love how it turned out! The Poppy Parade is a great addition to this card.

Almost two weeks ago I did an unboxing video of my Holiday Catalogue preorder and created today's card using new product! Now all I want to create is Christmas and wintry projects! It's been very hard not to use them for everything right now when it's still summer!

To create this card I used the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder for the card base, then punched those cute trees using the Pine Tree Punch with the Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper. The Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper has great designs that can be used for more than Christmas or Holiday projects. I hope that you are excited about these products as well!

Watch the Holiday Catalogue unboxing Facebook Live here: (you will see all the new designer series paper - I love it all!)
 

Supplies
Stamps: Perfectly Plaid
Colours: Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Accessories: Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper, Pine Tree Punch, Tailored Tag Punch, Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder

Happy Christmas in July! Last week was the Stampin' Up! Incentive trip to the Greek Isles. While I didn't earn the trip it was fun to watch other demonstrators from around the world share pictures of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. It put me in the Christmas spirit and I knew that a Christmas card would be a perfect swap card for Sunday's team meeting!

My brother gave me the Dashing Deer stamp set for Christmas last year and I believe this is the first time I've used it! When first looking at the stamp set I thought the doe and buck were one stamp but they are not, but they are perfectly sized to work together. I used the Stamparatus to stamp all my images since I was making 3 cards. It allowed me to get the stamped images to show up in just the right spot on all of my swaps.

Supplies
Stamps: Dashing Deer, Buffalo Check background
Colours: Merry Merlot, Pretty Peacock, Very Vanilla, Gold
Accessories: Versamark, Gold Embossing Powder, Layering Oval dies, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stamparatus

I so love the truck from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set!


I coloured in the truck and tree using a blender pen. The effect makes it look like an old farm truck that the sun has faded the paint so I added a few rust spots! Unfortunately, it reminds me of my rusty truck!

Stamps: Farmhouse Christmas
Colours: Crumb Cake, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bliss
Accessories: All is Bright designer series paper, Farmhouse Framelits, 1/4" Copper Trim, Gold Faceted Gems, Blender Pen
