Stamp It Group New Years Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp It Group New Years Blog Hop! 

I’m so excited for you to be here today with us! I have a fun New Years themed card for you today using up some of those scrap pieces of Specialty Paper.  

Be sure you leave a comment below for a chance to win a Stampin’ Up Confetti Birthday Card Kit! 

New Years is a special occasion for many of us. We stay up late and celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of a new year. At my house this usually consists of food, family and fun. And also wine! 


The Cheers to the Season Cling Stamp has a cute little wine glass that I thought would be perfect for a New Years card. I’m thinking this one will be for my daughter in the end! 


We will also be using 2 other stamp sets, Biggest Wish and More Wishes with this one as well. 


Some other products used are: VersaMark, Lost Lagoon Classic Stamp Pad, Blending Brush, Metallic Embossing Powder, Basic Embossing Powders, Heat Tool and Simply Elegant Trim. There is a complete list of all products below for you. 

Measurements for this card are:

Lost Lagoon 8-1/2” x 11” Cardstock: 4-1/4” x 11” , score at 5-1/2”; 2-1/2” x 4”

Basic White 8-1/2” x 11” Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4”; 2-1/2” x 4”; 1” x 4-1/2” 

Snowflake Magic 12” x 12” Specialty Paper:4” x 5-1/4”; 3 scrap pieces between 1 & 3-3/4” and at least 5-1/4” long.  

Most of my Snowflake Magic paper was cut at odd angles which actually ended up working perfectly. You can however use straight edges if you want. 

I had a complete brain reboot while working on this card.  I completely forgot to catch photos of the first couple of steps 🤦‍♀️ Thankfully they are fairly simple steps! 

What is not photographed is: Stamp the wine glass onto the 2-1/2” Lost Lagoon with VersaMark. Add some Silver and White Embossing Powder to this and hit it with the heat tool. Next you will want to stamp another wine glass on the 2-1/2” Basic White with VersaMark and Lost Lagoon Stamp Pad . Cover this with Clear Embossing Powder and heat to set. 
Stamp “Happy New Years” onto the 1” White with both Versamark and Lost Lagoon Stamp Pad. Cover with Clear Embossing Powder and heat to set. I used both Biggest Wish and More Wishes cursive stamps for this. 

I added an extra piece of Snowflake Magic to the larger Basic White and attached that to the inside of the card.

There you have a simple but gorgeous New Years card! 

I hope this helps to inspire you for some fun cards for your New Years celebration!

12 Days of Christmas Projects!

I am very much behind the clock with my 12 Days of Christmas project for you all. We started on December 5 over on Facebook and Instagram. Life has been super chaotic and I haven’t had a chance to get them up here for you guys. I will correct this over the weekend!!

I will group these together in 3 day batches to make this simpler. I am working on a full Tutorial for all the projects. I am using a new program for that and it’s definitely been a learning curve but I’m slowly figuring it all out.

Lets dive straight into the first 3 days of our 12 Days of Christmas Projects!

Day 1 of our 12 Days Of Christmas Projects, I wanted to keep things simple for our first one. These luminaries are not only gorgeous but super simple to make and take very little materials.

Luminaries are actually a fun project in general, not just during the Christmas season but year round. You can customize these to whatever holiday, special occasion or favorite things (😉 snowflakes are my favorite!)

I was very excited how they turned out, especially the star one, that was a last minute lets try this idea! The manger scene is actually the negative of a die that I used as a stencil! I will have a tutorial for you on everything you need to know about this project, including how I did that silhouette!

—————————————————————————————————————————

Day 2 of 12 Of Christmas Projects!
This second project is a simple hanging sign for your home or as a gift. There is a little story behind these, I wanted to do a simple hanging, as you can see they absolutely exploded 😂! (I posted these a little later then planned, time management sometimes is not my friend!)

They are fairly simple to create. The paper I used (Linen Specialty Paper )for both of these is sadly no longer available but you could use any of our gorgeous Designer Series Paper, or any of the specialties to create a backdrop for your design. I also used an actual stick that Miss Daisy helped me find in our yard (she was slightly offended that I brought it inside 🤣) as the hanger.

The NOEL hanging is shimmery and bright, perfect for the festive season. The Warm Wishes hanging is more winter, calm, peacefulness and warmth.

I was really wanting you guys to see how you can take any project you find, a pattern, and idea on Pinterest, something you want to CASE from me, you can change things up completely and make it yours!

Day 3 of our 12 Days of Christmas Projects!

This project we are kicking  it back old school with just Stamps Ink and Paper and a few embellishments of course. Speaking of embellishments, please note there is a tiny red bow on the card front. I did that! Without the assistance of a fork! Its the little things sometimes 🙃

This card was fun to create. It’s nice to fall back to the basics, regroup your mind and inspiration.

General overview of this card, I used the Joy of Noel stamp set. I also used our Stampin’ Blends for the coloring.

This card would be super simple to create in large quantities. Simple yet elegant, just the way it should be.

I had an awesome big brain moment and figured out how to share a link to the file for the tutorials! I truly need an adultier adult sometimes!

Here is the link to the file: 12 Days of Christmas Project Tutorials

As I get new ones completed the file will automatically update and I will let you know when that happens so you can grab it!

These tutorials are FREE, a gift from me to you for the holidays and hopefully future special occasions!

I will get the rest of the projects uploaded here hopefully tomorrow!

Happy Stamping!!

Thank you for joining me today for our Christmas Holiday Blog Hop! I am excited to have you here!

My name is Mikki Winebrenner and today I have a fun and simple Christmas card for you using Stampin Up Christmas Tiding Embossing Folder. 

Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love the colors, smells, family and pretty much everything about it! Especially the snow!! I also know all too well how busy this time of year is. 

For our card today I wanted to keep things as simple as possible. Anything to make things a little easier to help spread the Christmas Cheer. 

For this card all you need is: Basic White and Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, Ribbon, Craft White Stamp Pad and your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. 

Lets dive in!

Measurements are: 

Real Red 8-1/2” x 11” Cardstock: 4-1/4” x 11”, 3-1/2” x 5”

Basic White 8-1/2” x 11” Cardstock: 3-5/8” x 5-1/8”, 4” x 5-1/4”

Super simple but festive and fun. You could easily change up the colors to any combination you want and even add different embellishments to give it bright colors. 

I hope this helps to inspire you for some super simple cards for your holiday needs!
