I know that was a weird title but it caught your attention, didn’t it? Today’s Stamp Off challenge is to make a card of some kind of drinking. I had to think about this one for a while. I have the stamp set called Coffee Cafe but I figured Buffy would use that since she loves coffee. I had to a search through my stamps and found one that had a drink in it.
I used a few different stamp sets for this card. The drink is from Colorful Seasons. I also used High Tide and the sentiment is from Florentine Filigree. I also used a non-Stampin’ Up!® set. What?? I know! Blasphemy! I couldn’t find a solid sailboat image in my SU stash so I cheated a bit.
This winter has been brutal with lots of ice, snow, cold and wind. This card made me think of warmth, sunshine and peace. I could use that in my life right now!
To make it I first stamped the water in Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay ink. Then I stamped the sand in Crumb Cake a few different times using a stamp from High Tide. This gave it a little depth. I sponged the sky using Balmy Blue ink and then stamped the birds in Crumb Cake ink and the sentiment and sailboat in Early Espresso. I cut the chair out of Whisper White cardstock with a die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Set. I stamped the drink in Mango Melody and cut it out using the matching die.
Now let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made. We will see if my prediction for Buffy is true. That is one of the things I love about our challenges. We don’t share our cards ahead of time so it is a fun surprise for us too!

Good morning! Today is another Stamp Off challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me. This time we needed to make a Fall or Thanksgiving card.
I decided to use the stamp set called Colorful Seasons. This is a great stamp set because it covers all the seasons. There are snowflakes for winter, flowers for summer and spring and the cutest Adirondack chair to watch all the seasons go by.
To make this card I first stamped all the leaves in Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Rich Razzleberry. The sentiment is from Labels To Love. I used my amazing Stamparatus to stamp the different colors. First I covered with sentiment with medical tape and inked the leaves in Shaded Spruce. Then leaving the stamp in the exact same place, I covered the leaves and inked the sentiment in Cajun Craze. The Stamparatus lets you line up the stamp multiple times. I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Then I mounted it with Dimensionals onto a piece of Crushed Curry and then Cajun Craze card stock that was cut out using the Layering Circles Dies. I decided it needed something more so I cut out a leaf using the Seasonal Layers die in Rich Razzleberry.
Now let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made with the Fall/Thanksgiving theme.
Good morning everyone! Today is another day for a Stamp Off Challenge. This time we have a theme card. We can make a card (or project) with a beach theme. My favorite place in the world is a tropical beach so it was not hard for me to get into this theme.
Here is my card:
To make this card I used a couple of different stamp sets. First I stamped the sand using the stamp set called High Tide in Crumb Cake. The then tore (yes, Buffy I really did!) the piece of cardstock so it looked a little uneven as sand might. Then I stamped the sea grass and the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink. I used Bermuda Bay ink for the water and Crumb Cake for the seagulls on Coastal Cabana cardstock. The chair is from a set of Thinlits called Seasonal Layers. I love that Stampin’ Up! throws in miscellaneous dies sometimes. The sentiment and the drink (I used Calypso Coral) are from Colorful Seasons stamp set which match the Seasonal Layers dies.
Now let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made. We don’t show each other our creations before we post so it is always a surprise to see what amazing things they make.
Have I mentioned before how much I love Colorful Seasons and the matching Thinlits Dies called Seasonal Layers? I will never get tired of this set. It is just so versatile that you can make cards all year long with just this set. Plus, if you buy both in a Bundle you can save 10%!
To make this card I took the stamp set called Timeless Textures and and stamped the swirls in Cajun Craze onto Whisper White Cardstock. Then I stamped the splatters using Crushed Curry before layering a lines from the die set called Swirly Scribbles. Then I stamped the outline of three leaves onto Whisper White in Memento Black Ink and then sponged over them using Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler before cutting them out. As you can see I made each leaf a little different.
Good morning! I hope your Friday is going to be fabulous! It is time for another Stamp Off Challenge. This time our challenge was to use our favorite Embossing Folder.
As of today, my favorite Embossing Folder is the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I say “as of today” because my favorite stamp set, dies, color and embossing folders change on a weekly basis. It is hard to pick a favorite when there are so many fantastic Stampin’ Up! products to choose from!
Of course it is Fall right now so my favorites colors are from the Regal Family. I used Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango. As of today my favorite stamp set is Merry Cafe and my favorite dies are Coffee Cups Framelits. Why? They are the newest in my collection and new is always fun.
Whenever I made a card I end up changing it, adding different things to it and taking things away. As a result of this, I have a bunch of pre-cut shapes which is where I got the pumpkin and leaf from. The pumpkin is from Pick A Pumpkin and it’s matching Thinlits called Patterned Pumpkins. The leaf is from the stamp set Colorful Season with its matching Thinlits called Seasonal Layers.
Sometimes it is hard to see some of the new products in the 2017 Holiday Catalog because each picture is jam packed with so many new things that it is easy to overlook some of the smaller items. The new Champagne Foil Sheets are one of these items. I almost missed the because the catalog only shows a small corner and because they are right next to the gold Foil Snowflakes you might assume these are gold too. Nope! They are this super soft, beautiful color. They are a light gold and so pretty. Let’s all hope that Stampin’ Up! carries them over to the new catalog next year!
I have to admit I used a lot of product on this card but there is nothing there that you should not own already The sentiment is from Hello Friend. This stamp set goes with a kit but you can still buy it separately if you like it. The background is a 3D Embossing Folder called Layered Leaves. I also used the 2 1/4″ Punch and the Layering Circles Dies. Last but not least, the leaf is from Seasonal Layers. Now listen carefully. If you don’t buy another thing, you need to buy this set of dies and the matching stamp set called Colorful Seasons. It is perfect for every season and you will use it all the time!
This is the second project we made at our monthly stamp club meeting. It is called an Eclipse Card and is extremely popular right now. I had a couple of members request to make this because they have seen them everywhere. They are super easy to make. You either use Designer Series Paper for the background or stamp a background. Then you cut out a word and pop up the letters using Mini Dimensionals.
For the background we used the Designer Series Paper from the 2017 Holiday Catalog called Year Of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper. It is hard to see in the photo but it beautiful paper that has gold, silver and copper accents. We cut out the word “NOEL” using the Large Letters Framelits. I made it a little easier for my Club members by lining up the letters ahead of time and them attached them using retired Washi Tape.
Then we cut out the snowflakes from Silver Foil Paper using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Des.
