What's New At SU Blog Hop

Christmas is coming and I am so behind, I signed up for a blog hop only to realize the theme was Christmas and I have no new stamps. We moved this summer form the county I lived in my whole life to the eastern shore of MD  I decided to view this as a challenge to create with something I have from the 2019/2020 Annual Catalog

Birthday Goodness was new in this year's annual catalog but it's not just for birthday.  When I first saw it the macron dessert tower reminded me of very elegant french desserts, Croquembouche,  that I had seen in various food magazines. 

I don't think this set was intended for Christmas, but I decided it can do double duty!

I used the ribbon stamp to create a background. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

I used Poppy Parade,  Mint Macaron, and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends to color the image.

And I also made a Birthday card using the plate of donuts from this set.

Cardstock is Gorgeous Grape and Posey

     I love the little donut stamp. I fussy cut it and used a dimensional to make it Pop.

Stampin' Up! Cauldron Bubble and Buffalo Check

Stampin' Up! Cauldron Bubble and Buffalo Check

One of the challenges, I participated in this week was to use the Buffalo Check stamp. I was not sure what stamp set I wanted to use but I knew I wanted to do the Buffalo Check in Gorgeous Grape.

I stamped several of the young witches from the Cauldron Bubble stamp set and colored them with the Stampin' Blends alcohol ink markers. I was struggling to make all the elements I wanted to use come together. So I asked my daughter, Anna,  to take a look. She took a peek and moved a few things around and I loved it. As soon as I saw the witch in the middle of the web, I decided she would hold the spider in her hand.

 I used the Buffalo Check stamp with Gorgeous Grape Classic Stampin' Ink on Highland Heather card stock. I mounted it on Gorgeous Grape. I stamped the witch on Thick Whisper White card stock and colored with the Blends. I die cut 4 spiderwebs and attached them to the card with glue dots to make one big web.

I used a pair of wire snips that are for beading to cut the little ring off the spider before I used a glue dot to adhere it. Now my little witch is all ready to give you a Halloween Treat.

Stampin' Up! Spirited Snowmen

Stampin' Up! Spirted Snowmen for Freshly Made Sketches 353

It's a sketch challenge this week over at Freshly Made Sketches. When I first saw this sketch my mind went blank. I have never designed a square card, however, after staring at it for a few minutes I began to see a snow drift.

I had recently designed a card for my Christmas stamp camp and I thought it would look great as a square and with a few enchantments. 

I love the Spirted snowmen stamp set. It has 2 very different snowmen and this sweet little couple. I started by making all the elements that would have snow on them so they could dry while I worked on the rest of the card.

 I cut out two different trees using the In the Woods Framelits dies that coordinate with the Winter Woods from Mossy Meadow cardstock and a snow hill from some Whisper White using a die from the same set For the snow, I used the shimmery white embossing paste. I dabbed it on to both layers of my tree and the edge of my snowy hill

I used the new Corrugated Embossing folder on a piece of crumb cake cardstock. I daubed ink on the edges to give it an aged looked

I stamped a piece of crumb cake cardstock with the Buffalo Check stamp using Merry Merlot and I distressed the edge of the paper and daubed it with a bit of crumb cake ink.

I used the Stampin'' Blends alcohol ink markers to color my snow couple and then I used a heavy coat of Wink of Stella to make them glisten like freshly fallen snow.

I assemble the card with tear and tape and dimensionals.

If you would like to more than 50 great ideas for using this sketch, visit the Freshly Made Sketches Blog 

I made the card as a square and a rectangle but I enhanced the square card. Can you see the differences? Share what you think in the comments
