Jolly Santa & Small Business Saturday Deal

When I first went through the Holiday Catalog, I saw the Holly Jolly bundle and thought it was cute. But it wasn’t on my top wish list. Man, why not??? The dies are super versatile! You can use the sleigh silhouette to create a peaceful card or add the die cut words to your cards/scrapbook pages for extra bling!

So, now I have a Snowfall Puff Paint obsession to go with my Wink of Stella one! (funny I didn’t use the Wink on this card!) But I have used it on wood ornaments, cards, tags, and now Santa!! I love how he turned out! I colored him in with Stampin’ Blends and then was able to cut him out in a snap! There is a die for that!! No fussy cutting!! To make it fun, I ran some Crumb Cake cardstock through the Die Cutting Machine with the Brick Wall 3-D folder. I then used a sponge loaded up with Crumb Cake to give it a distressed look.

I did a color on color background using the present stamp and Cherry Cobbler ink. A quick sentiment using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.

To Celebrate Small Business Saturday, I will send you a ribbon spool of your choice (up to $8) for your order of $50 or more from my site! Be sure to not to mark “no contact” or I can’t mail you your gift! Just go to Laura’s Stampin Up website and enter host code GBQNG2PA!

Happy Holidays! Laura

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!

Pretty Patterns

IMG_2784

I fell in love with the special edition Host set from last month! Merry Patterns is a stunning set that you can create several different scenes with one set.  And it has great 2-step stamping! The deer in the sweater is my favorite!  I decided to use silver embossing powder to create his image.  It’s paired with the Year of Cheer specialty DSP, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Basic Grey.  Just gives you a cold and wintery feel!GPUZ1380

Candy Cane Lane Meets Gingerbread!

1223b2a3-6b57-4a1d-afed-04d9f99dc6d2

I had so much fun making this card!  I started by scoring a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Real Red cardstock and scored at 2 3/4″ from each end.  I wanted it to look like a peek inside a gingerbread house!

Of course I had to use the Candy Cane Lane Baker’s Twine!  I used both and tied them together!  It was hard to choose, so why not use both? Then I added a little touch of the Candy Cane Lane washi tape.  Dimensionals are on one side of the sentiment and I made sure the opposite side could tuck under the gingerbread girl’s arm.  I colored pearls with a black sharpie for added depth and of course red glimmer paper!  But look what’s inside!

I cut this out of the Candy Cane Lane DSP and added the sentiment!  This is one of the club cards this month too!

Dont’ forget that there is a buy 3 get one free on select DSP!

I added Wink of Stella to his beard and parts of his hat and coat.  Looks stunning IRL!

Get ready this weekend!  It’s World Card Making Day October 1st!  You know Stampin’ Up! will have a special!  Do you remember the last time you received a card in the mail? In a sea of junk mail and bills, a card is a simple thing that really stands out to the person who receives it. Sending a card is a small gesture that shows just how much you care about that special someone in your life.
