Cut a piece of Bubble Bath at 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 and 2 pieces of Basic White 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and 4 x 5 1/4 And scrap piece of Basic White to stamp the balloon. Now we stamp!
I stamped in an assembly line. I stamped the inside card layer of Basic White, then the envelope and last top layer of the card front (2 1/2 x 3 1/2). I went from light to dark. I started stamping in Bubble Bath with the streamer image from the Beautiful Balloons Stamp Set. After stamping the streamer in all 3 places, I then stamped the ballon on the Basic White card front. Repeat the steps in Berry Burst and Azure Afternoon, except for the Balloon, stamp in Azure Afternoon on the scrap piece and cut out using the Beautiful Balloons Dies. Attach the Azure Afternoon balloon to the basic white piece with dimensionals. Stamp the ballons strings and the greeting in Tuxedo Memento Ink. Attach to the Bubble Bath cardstock and then to the cardbase using dimensionals and finished with a few Basic Rhinestones. How fun and easy!!!

Our Thanksgiving has come to an end and Christmas is under way. I love to decorate for Christmas. It's my favorite holiday. I'm always looking forward to having the tree up. This I decided to bring back a favorite decoration. A Christmas Countdown.
I hope you join me today from Barb Pfeffer's blog. She is so talented!!! Make sure, take some time to visit each blog and leave us a little comment. Be sure to visit Maureen Rauchfuss blog after mine. You can find a list below!
This project has been a family favorite to display and countdown to Christmas. I decided to use the Beary Christmas Suite Collection from Stampin Up. It is so adorable!!! I used some 3x3 Kraft boxes I had on hand and some number dies. Now Ican not take credit for the design. I found this project on Pinterest and have made it over the years using different papers and stamps. You can find instructions by Melissa Stout here.
You will need 2 pieces of cardstock, DSP stamps, dies and some embellishments.
I used 3 different DSP patterns and cut 4 each at 2 3/4x2 3/4 pieces.
Cut 1 piece of cardstock to 6 1/2x 8 1/2 and score on the long side at 3/8, 3 1/2, 4 1/4 and 7 7/8
Cut the 2nd piece of cardstock to 6 1/2x11 and score on the long side at 1/2, 1 1/2, 6 and 10 1/2
You will need a set of numbers per box.
1 box 1 2 3 4 5 0
2 box 1 2 7 8 9 0
You will see if you follow directions from the link, she cut out a 6 not a 0 for box 1 - I found the numbers work better with each box having a 0. The 9 can double as a 6 if you turn it upside down. You can countdown consecutively from 32 days to Christmas. You can see from my picture shows 57. But the numbers won't always line up. I like counting down 32 days - that is how long it is from Thanksgiving to Christmas.
The stand is a little tricky. Fold on the score lines. On the smaller piece of paper add tear tape on the same side of each scored end.
On the large piece fold, the score lines that are grouped together in an accordion style. The add a piece of tear tape to the end. Turn the cardstock over and add tear tape to the other end. Please refer to the pictures below. I would reference the video included in the Pinterest post as well.
Afterall is assembled, you can start counting down to Christmas.
I hope you enjoyed my project today. Be sure to continue hoping along

then onto the cardbase. Next, I added a piece vellum 3x 4 1/2. I stamped the greeting on a piece of very vanilla from the die included. I also cut out a variety of leaves. I layered them under the label. I added a piece of the Natural ribbon and frayed the ends from the Copper and Natural ribbon pack. The I added the Copper ribbon in 2 loops and added the label on top with dimensionals.
I'm so happy how this card came out and I absolutely love it how stunning this suite is! I hope you enjoyed it too!

I chose the Stampin Up Beary Christmas Suite to make my card. It was the first suite that jumped out me when I was looking through the Stampin Up Holiday Mini. I was knew in the moment that this what the set I was ordering right away! I love the Polar Bear, it just makes me smile! This card is so fun and easy to make! I used Night of Navy Cardstock as the cardbase. And then I added an embossed layer in Night of Navy. The embossing folder is also new called Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder. Before adhering the layer to the cardbase with dimensionals, I wrapped the Balmy Blue Sparkle Ribbon around the layer and finished with a bow. I stamped the greeting in Misty Moonlight and use the 2 smallest rectangle from the Scalloped Contour Dies. While I was stamping, I also stampin a piece of Basic White with a polar bear and snowflakes for inside of the card and also on my envelopes.
I added dimensionals to the back of the greeting and adhere to the card over the ribbon. For the Polar Bear on the right, I used the Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Beary Cute Punch, to cut one bear out. For the bear on the left, I used scissors and just fussy cut. I finished the front of the card by adding a few Adhesive Backed Glitter Sequins.

My favorite time of year is just around the corner. So I felt it was only fitting to use the brand new All About Autumn Suite that will be available in September. It so pretty and the paper is gorgeous. And the best part of these projects, my daughter, who will be off to college again in a week, helped me design and make them!!
I started with a card base of Very Vanilla and added the first layer of Moody Mauve which was embossed with the new Distressed Tile 3D Embossing folder. The next layer is a piece of All About Autumn DSP 3 1/2x4 1/2. I cut out several of the leaves in Mossy Mellow, Crushed Curry, Moody Mauve, Pretty Peacock and Copper Clay. The greeting was stamped in the Pretty Peacock and cut out with the dies. I finished it with the Copper Ribbon included in the suite and one of the adhesive backed speckled dots
I hope you enjoyed the projects I made for the hop! Please be sure to leave a comment and continue to Tiz's blog!

It's time for our monthly Stampin Friends blog hop! And this month we are focusing on punches. When I began designing the card for this month, I realized I have so many punches. But only a handful are current with Stampin Up. I had to really think about what I wanted to do.

To make this Perfectly Punched card, It is very easy to make. And you could make multiple cards in a short amount of time.
I used the Double-Oval Punch and punched out several ovals using the Bright & Beautiful DSP. Then I alternated the patterns and size as the background of my card. When I was happy with the layout, I used a piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Basic White and glued them down. I added dimensionals to the back and adhered that to the card base in Basic White as well. Then I took a piece of Metallic Woven Ribbon in Sweet Sorbet. I stamped the greeting from the Happy Labels stamp set and punched it out with same punch and then I punched out the larger oval in Berry Burst. I added that to the front of the card with dimensionals. I finished it off with Basic Rhinestones!
How cute! I love it. I hope you enjoy the card I have shared with you.
