Perfectly Plaid

The Perfectly Plaid Bundle has been so useful this season! I have lost count of how many cards, tags, and gift décor I have made with it! This card was for the second Stamp a Stack of Christmas cards I had this month! (It’s my busy season-sorry I haven’t posted as much!)

I started off with a Crumb Cake card base and then a Shaded Spruce background. To create texture, I used the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder. Next, I used the Pine Tree punch to cut out 3 trees with the coordinating Wrapped In Plaid 6×6 paper. To create dimension, I used Dimensionals to make the trees pop up on the front of the card. TIP: To center your trees, I adhere the first one in the middle. Then I added a strip of Crumb Cake that I used for the sentiment.

The Pine Cones are accented with Wink of Stella to add some sparkle and I topped each tree with a Gold Metallic pearl. To finish the card, I added a small Linen Thread bow to the center tree. Such a versatile set!

Guess what is coming next week!!! Stampin’ Up! Online Extravaganza on November 20–22, 2019. Stay tuned for more details!

Beautiful Baubles

The Brightly Gleaming Suite is just gorgeous! There are so many possiblitites using this suite to make cards, pages, framed art, and even ornaments for your tree! This card was made for our first of two Stamp a Stack of cards! It was so much fun to create and the results are so elegant!

I stamped the holly berry bunch randomly on the Pretty Peacock base using matching ink. Next, I used the Copper Delicata Metallic Ink to stamp the smaller ornaments and then punch them out with coordinating punch. Then, I used the bigger ornament punch to cut out an ornament with no fuss! I ran Copper Foil through the die cutting machine using the Hammered Metal 3-D folder. I adhered it to the base and then layered a piece of Very Vanilla to create a focal point for the ornaments. To make the ornaments seem more realistic, I cut out just the tops and adhered them to create the metal tops on the ornaments.

To create the Pretty Peacock bow, I used a Pretty Peacock Blends to color White Baker’s Twine. There is this elegant Classic Weave Ribbon that has copper “Merry Christmas” written on it. I cut a small piece and stabilized it on a Very Vanilla strip of paper.

I love how the card came out and how the colors just compliment one another!

Stay tuned for more fun cards!

Elegant Fir

This card was made for my first Stamp a Stack and it was a favorite with my girls! It was a fun and simple card to create and make! The Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch are a must have this season! I have seen so many gorgeous cards, 3-d items, tags, and scrapbook pages using the duo!

For this card, I first stamp the Crumb Cake with the Birch background stamp (I did stamp off first to make it more subtle). Next, I stamped the fir tree with Shaded Spruce onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels. Then I tied a piece of the stunning Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ ribbon into a knot and adhered it below the tree.

I placed a piece of the Toile Tidings DSP onto the card base and then used Dimensionals to adhere the shape with the stamped tree on top of that. I added 2 Gold Foil sprigs that I cut from the Sprig Punch. The final touch was a Gold Metallic Pearl!

What is funny, is last year I looked at the Sprig punch and thought “I don’t need that”. I was sooooo wrong! I love that punch! I have seen cute wreaths made from several that are layered into a circle.

Stay tuned for a 24 hour sale tomorrow, Monday, October 21st!!!!

Let it Snow

Remember my last post about my new obsession with Snow Accent Puff Paint? Well, here is a whimsical snowman car we made for the World Card Making Day yesterday! It was part of a Stamp a Stack of cards! So my amazing ladies made 108 total yesterday! Whew!

Here is a close up of the puff paint as snow balls! It’s just therapeutic to watch it pop up! The background has a quick watercolor wash of Costal Cabana to make the snowballs pop even more!

To make the color combination for this card, I just picked out the snowfall piece from the Let It Snow Specialty DSP. To give the snowman image more texture, I cut it out with the Stitched Shapes dies and added a Real Red Cotton Bow to anchor the image. The girls LOVED this card yesterday!

Be sure to have me listed as your demonstrator so I can send you thank you cards/gifts! I have had a few “no contact” orders, and I would love to thank you for supporting me!

Simply Plaid

If you want to make a ton of Christmas cards in a snap, this is your answer! The Wrapped in Plaid suite has so much to offer! You can purchase the whole suite in one easy bundle or piece by piece!

I made this over our retreat weekend for my Sweet n Simple card class that is this week! I love it when the bundles have punches with them since it makes the classes so easy!

I ran the Cherry Cobbler through with the Winter Knit 3-d Embossing Folder (another great product in the Holiday Catalog). Then I punched the tree out on Whisper White with the Pine Tree Punch. I then cut a small piece of plaid paper from the Wrapped in Plaid 6×6 DSP and adhered it to the back of the Whisper White.

I topped it off with the sentiment, a bow made from the Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ ribbon, and a Gold Pearl! That’s it! Be sure to add some DSP to your next order! Look at this great deal going on!

Merry Buffalo Check

KJZC0966

Are you as obsessed with the Buffalo Check craze as I am?  When I saw the Buffalo Check Background stamp, I bought it with my first order! I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class and I love how it turned out!

I highly recommend to buy the wood mount with background sets.  I like that they stamp a much more even and crisp image.

TIP: ink your stamp with your color of choice and lay your stamp rubber side up.  Place your paper on top of the rubber.  Then, pull your grid paper (or a piece of scratch paper) and rub all over to get an even image.  And no ink on you!

KRKR4311To make the sentiment pop, I used the marker to rubber method.  I always huff on it before stamping the image too! To finish it off, I used the 1/8″ Real Red ribbon and Burlap ribbon to make it look farmhouse!
