2020 Stink Stank Stunk- The Grinch Special


 

I love the Grinch and this year is his year to shine!!  As soon as I saw the "Christmas Means More" stamp set in the Stampin' Up!Ⓡ mini catalog, I knew I had a Grinch card in me that would work it's way out!!

As an added bonus, my office held a Grinch day instead of our usual Ugly Christmas Sweater day so I had every reason to whip up some signs to hang about.  "Stink, stank, stunk"!  Yep, that pretty much sums up 2020.  

Here are the products I used in each project.

Christmas Card:

  • Christmas Means More Stamp Set (sentiment)
  • Sweetest Time Stamp Set and Dies (holly and greenery)
  • Heartfelt Stamp Set (small hearts)
  • Heart Punches (hearts on cover)
  • Make a Difference Stamp Set (numbers on heart)
  • Layering Circles Dies (circles)
  • Granny Apple Green was the perfectly grinchy color and I ran it through the embosser using the Tasteful Textile folder. 

The most challenging item on this card was the hearts.  I punched the heart from white cardstock and punched the scalloped heart from cherry cobbler cardstock.  I stamped the small heart from Heartfelt in the center, then used the medium heart from Heartfelt but used a Stampin' Write marker to ink just the heart.  I then used the numbers from the Make a Difference to label them 1 and 2. 

I should have made a video but it would not have been a PG rating!  Sometimes, you just have to try until you get the result you want.  And maybe it won't be what you intended, it might just be something better!!  Don't be afraid, it is just paper and ink!!!!


2020 Sign:

  • Oh so Ombre paper (coming in January's Sale-a-bration!!)
  • Playful Alphabet Dies
  • Foam Adhesive Sheets


The alphabet dies and foam adhesive sheets made this sign embarrassingly easy!  Don't tell my co-workers! They thought it was brilliant. 

Just adhere the ombre paper to the front of the foam sheet. Keep the backing on.  Use the dies to cut out the letters.  The die will cut through the paper and foam.  Just remove the backing and adhere it to your sign.  Easy!  And it pops up your letters to give a dimensional look.
