Frosted Floral Congratulations Card

Today’s card is made with the Frosted Floral Suite, which is really versatile. Here I’ve made a congratulations card, but there are three very different sentiments in the stamp set. And the paper has a 13 different Stampin’ Up! colors, so you can make a plethora of different projects. I used the First Frost stamp set, Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies, and Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper for this card.

OSAT Blog Hop – Ghouls, Goblins, and Gourds

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

It’s time for the One Stamp at a Time blog hop for October. We’re featuring Halloweeny projects this month. I used the In the Woods Framelits Dies and the Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies to create the card, which happens to be the invitation to our Halloween party this year. The front of the card is a homey Christmas scene, and the inside is the same scene in the dark, when the frightful creatures come out to play. I used the In the Woods dies along with the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper to create the treat bag.

I used only one stamp on this invitation, the one for the garland, mainly because I didn’t have sentiment stamps that said exactly what I wanted it to say in the size I needed. So I printed the sentiments onto card stock (Whisper White and Smoky Slate) and cut them using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies. I used two stamps on the treat bag, from two different stamp sets.

My husband and I have a big Halloween party each year with lots of decorations, yummy food, and even a costume contest. As a matter of fact, right now our house is full of boxes of Halloween decorations, as well as Christmas decorations, because the theme of this year’s Halloween party is Christmas.

Most years, after the Halloween party, we just don’t have the energy to put up a Christmas tree. I was determined to have a tree this year, so that’s why the unusual Halloween theme. It’s been very interesting combining Christmas and Halloween. All the rats and bats will have red bows around their necks, or tiny Santa hats. And I was amazed to find so many Halloween ornaments, and even black trees!

If there are any days in October when I have no blog post, it’s because the Halloween party prep has taken its toll. I will attempt to post every day, but I know from past experience that sometimes I’m just too tired from hanging cobwebs and bats and such to concentrate on creating a post, or even a project to blog about. So please forgive any gaps in my posting in the next few weeks. Thank you!

Here’s what I made:

I forgot to take more photos during the assembly line process, but here are a few. I made 100 invitations!

100 Whisper White staircases:

With 200 hundred little stars to adhere with Mini Glue Dots (1 on the front and 1 on the inside of each card) I found it easier and quicker to attach the stars to the strip of Glue Dots, then pull them off one by one as I needed them.Halloween Christmas party invitation card, In the Woods and Christmas Staircase die sets, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Merry Christmas to All Window Card

Today I’m sharing a window card I made with the All is Bright Designer Series Paper, Merry Christmas to All bundle, Layering Circles Framelits Dies, and Snowflakes & Stars Wire Elements. The key to this card is to cut through both layers of paper at the same time before you adhere them together. That way you can hang the snowflake with copper thread and hide where the thread is adhered to the card.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Crumb Cake card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • All Is Bright Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″

Stamped with the Merry Christmas to All stamp set:

  • inside sentiment in Soft Suede ink onto the inside of the card base

Die cut using the Merry Christmas Thinlits:

  • outside sentiment from a scrap of Copper Foil Sheet

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • circle from the DSP layer and the front of the card base
  • NOTE: I laid the card base on the Big Shot, positioned the DSP layer on the front, then cut through both layers. DO NOT adhere the DSP layer before cutting. The Magnetic Platform helps hold the die in place which keeps the paper in place.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • strung a piece of Copper Metallic Thread through a wire snowflake, positioned the snowflake so it would hang in the die cut hole, then adhered the thread to the front of the card base using Tear & Tape
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base, lining up the die cut holes
  • die cut sentiment glued onto the DSP layer
  • If you’d like, you can glue a piece of Whisper White CS onto the inside of the card base. I decided to write directly onto the Crumb Cake card base.
