Snowman Season

Snowman Season

Oh my gosh, how cute are these snowmen from Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper? When photographing the card, I hoped I could capture the beautiful sparkle on all the snowmen. Funny thing is, when I saw this paper in the catalog, I didn’t initially buy it.  It didn’t jump out at me as something I had to have.  But then someone I know mentioned how cute it was so I purchased it and I was absolutely NOT disappointed! If you’d like to see in more detail, all the designs in this package of paper,  go to my Stampin’ Up! online store, here.  Click the “+” on the image of the paper to make the photo larger.  Then, you’ll see arrows and you’ll be able to scroll through all the designs.

The base of my card is Thick Whisper White.  When the base of my card is white, I always use our Thick Whisper White rather than our regular Whisper White.  The next layer is our Real Red cardstock. The sentiment  is from the stamp set Snowman Season and was also stamped in Real Red ink and cut out using the Merry Christmas Dies.  It’s a super simple card to make and super cute with all the sparkly snowmen!

Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper

Wrapped in Plaid

Today I have an easy card featuring Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog but first, I have a winner to announce! On Friday I offered Blog Candy (a make n take packet) for the project I shared. Thanks so much to everyone who left a comment! The random name drawn was Lesa! Congratulations, Lesa!!!!  (I will contact Lesa but if I don’t hear back from her within 24 hours, I will draw another name on Tuesday). 

I combined several new products from the Holiday Catalog to create today’s card.  The base of the card is Real Red.  The next layer is also Real Red and I placed it inside the Hammered Metal embossing folder using my die-cutting machine.  Then I added a piece of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper on the lower half of the Real Red. Before adhering it to the base, I wrapped the elegant Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Ribbon around the cardstock/Designer Series Paper and tied a bow.  Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back before adhering it to the base.

Hammered Metal Embossing Folder

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set Perfectly Plaid and stamped it in Shaded Spruce onto Whisper White cardstock.  It was cut out using the Merry Christmas Dies. All the products I used can be found in the supply list below!

Parcels & Petals and Feels Like Frost

Feels Like Frost

Happy Monday!

New Hammered Metal Embossing Folder

Today’s card might look familiar.  I made a very similar card a few weeks ago but made several changes to this “updated” one. 

Here’s the first one I made.  If you want to check it out, here’s the link to that post.

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

What are the differences between the two? First, I changed the measurements, just slightly so that less white would show between the panels (I’ve listed the measurements farther down in the post). Today’s card uses the Hammered Metal embossing folder rather than the Mosaic embossing folder.  Instead of using the Gathered Leaves Dies, I used our Leaf Punch and embossed them with the Hammered Metal folder. The sentiment was cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and layered on a Merry Merlot oval using the Layering Ovals Dies. 

Hammered Metal Stampin Up

Both cards have a cute little bow, made with our Linen Thread. The bows were adhered using just a dot of our Multipurpose Glue. A little of that glue goes a long, long way! 

Try taking a card you’ve made before and change it up a bit!

Stampin’ Up! Pumpkins & Leaves

Happy Monday! 

Today I have a card featuring several products from the Come to Gather Suite:  Gathered Leaves Dies, Gather Together stamp set and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. To see all the products in this suite, click here

Come to Gather Suite

Wow, I really love the Gathered Leaves Dies! As I mentioned last week, to really make the leaves POP, I spritzed the cardstock with a small amount of water before cutting the leaves out.  It really makes a big difference when you do this step! 

This Designer Series Paper coordinates beautifully with Pretty Peacock and Mint Macaron cardstock.  I used these two color for the leaves as well as the base and first layer of the card. My sentiment was stamped with Pretty Peacock ink and cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. The Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels add the finishing touch.  If you’d like to make today’s card, you’ll find the measurements below the supply list.
