Stamp Ink Paper #127- Wrap It Up!

Hello everyone - and Happy Tuesday! 
I hope all of my American friends have recovered from their Thanksgiving holiday and it is now straight sailing from now until Christmas! Can you believe in just a few short weeks we will be ringing in a new year?! I am SO ready!

This week, over at Stamp, Ink, Paper we have a challenge for you that will bust you out of your Christmas card frenzy - Wrap It Up (Tags...bags..... packaging... you name it!)

Here is my design!

...picture it.  Stampin Up - 2009.  This fun little wooden set  called Two Cool Dudes was my VERY FIRST stamp purchase  (and the reason for my credit card debt ever since!)  ;)  No regrets!
For this project I combined  the old with the new - the foil snowflakes from SU are one of my favourite current items for all of my Christmas projects - so you might just see a another peek at them before the holiday season is over! The Bakers Box die was my go-to for this fun little box!

Stamp Ink Paper #126-Grateful, Thankful, Blessed

Hello sweet friends!
I am back again for another challenge with Stamp Ink Paper! Our theme is Grateful, Thankful, Blessed - perfect for the US Thanksgiving holiday season! 

The image I inked up is from one of my FAVE stamp sets  from Unity called Everything - I used Versamark and heated white embossing powder for it to really stand out on the vellum. I also dug in to my Unity goodies for the sentiment (which actually fits the theme of our challenge this week) - and it can be found in the September Sentiment Kit called Abundant Blessings. I used Early Espresso ink from SU, and heat-set it.

A quick stitch or two with my vellum, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Kraft cardstock and this clean & simple little thank-you card was ready to hit the mail for someone special!

 Check out all of the Design Team blogs  this week for our challenge - they have been busy creating some fabulous projects for inspiration.
 Don't forget to play along with us - you have until Sunday 8pm Nov 26th to…

Scrap n' Stamp Distress to Impress Blog Hop

Welcome back, everyone!
It feels like forEVAAaa... but I am back with the Scrap n' Stamp girls for another Blog Hop!

This is where it all begins this month - we are designing some fab projects featuring Tim Holtz Distress Crayons - and ....ENABLER ALERT:  until Nov 30th they are 25% off over at Scrap n' Stamp!!! You might want to check that out! 
Here is what I designed!

I kept it super simple - and... while I don't have a large selection of the crayons - I have been playing with these water-reactive goodies for awhile - and I love 'em! 
I wanted to design something "winter" - but I didn't want to cram Christmas down your throat *just yet* (haha - don't worry, it is coming!) 😂

Stamp, Ink, Paper #125- A Color Challenge!

Hi, everyone!
I have another card to share with you today for Stamp, Ink, Paper! For this week's challenge we have a fun fall color combo for you!

Stamp: (Unity) Abundant Blessings, Love Never Leaves Ink: (SU) Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie (Tim Holtz Distress) Fossilized Amber, Walnut Stain, Spiced Marmalade, (Oxides) Wild Honey Paper: (SU Cardstock) Early Espresso, Kraft, Whisper White, Watercolor (Hero Arts) Woodgrain Vellum (FSJ) Copper Silks Sequins, Gold cord Woodgrain Embossing Folder
I rubbed a bit of the Walnut Stain and the Copper Silk on to the woodgrain folder before putting it through the big shot - it gave it a bit of shine and dimension. I stamped my gorgeous fall leaves on watercolored paper by rocking a bit of the Fossilized Amber, Marmalade and Walnut Stain and then giving them a shot of water - I LOVE those leaves! I put my Brother Scan n' Cut to work to cut them out - but fussy-cutting works too!  I put my layers together and stamped my se…

Girls Night Out with Stamp, Ink, Paper #124

Hello everyone! 
For those of you who have never been over to my blog - welcome! My name is Amber and I am super excited to be a Guest Designer for Stamp, Ink Paper this month! 
This week, we are celebrating Girls Night Out! Now who doesn't like the sound of that?!

Check out my project!

I was thrilled to make a lil "somethin-somethin" for gift exchange - this was PERFECT!  Here are the details:

Wine Tag: Stamp: (Unity) Let's Get Sip Faced Ink: (SU) Black Archival Paper:(SU) Silver Foil, Basic Black CS, Shimmer CS Ken Oliver Colorburst in Merlot  (SU) Tag thinlit die Blackberry Bliss ribbon 
This tag was a breeze with the die! I ran everything through my Big Shot, and then stamped by image with Black archival ink. I gave the paper just a very small blast of water and hit it with some of the Colorburst, blotting up a  bit of the excess.  I used my Tom Bow adhesive and moved on to my card!
