Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Cards in the Mail

Welcome to the December 2023 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects in our hop from Stampin' Up! demonstrators around the world--I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so any prices mentioned are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month, and our theme for today is Cards in the Mail! This month I am sharing a card using the Sending Cheer Stamp Set and coordinating Sending Cheer Dies. Both products are heavily discounted in the Last Chance Sale! {you can find all Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll near the bottom of the post}

To get the best discounts, be sure to choose the Sending Cheer Stamp Set, and the Sending Cheer Dies separately in the store. If you choose the Bundle of these items, you will be paying full price.

The gingerbread men on the Pecan Pie Cardstock card base are stamped with the VersaMark Ink Pad, but their smiles are stamped with the Pecan Pie Ink Pad to make them a little darker. I used the Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder for the word 'Christmas', by just inking up the folder (on the side where the words look mirrored) with a Real Red Ink Pad, and pressing Very Vanilla Cardstock over it. Then I used my Paper Snips to fussy cut around the word. The envelope is lighter because I inked it up with the Pecan Pie Ink Pad, then stamped it off once on my Grid Paper, before stamping it onto Very Vanilla Cardstock. I didn't use layers on this card, because I want it to go through the mail easily.

Stampin' Supplies: Sending Cheer stamp set, Sending Cheer Dies, Very Vanilla Cardstock, Pecan Pie Cardstock & Ink Pad, Real Red Cardstock & Ink Pad, VersaMark Ink Pad, Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, Simply Shammy (to clean photopolymer stamps), Standard Sized Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Paper Snips, Bone Folder, Paper Trimmer, Grid Paper.
