Black Friday Special Today!

Itty Bitty Christmas

I hope everyone from the U.S. had an enjoyable Thanksgiving yesterday!

It’s the biggest shopping day of the year! I bet some of you were out at the crack of dawn, if not earlier, grabbing some great deals. Personally, I get a little cranky with lots of crowds so I prefer to do my shopping sitting at home in front of my computer. Because it’s Black Friday, I have a special when you place a Stampin’ Up! order at my online store today.

Night Before Christmas

 

My card today features the stamp set Itty Bitty Christmas and our 6″ x 6″ Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper. With all the beautiful designs on this paper, card-making is super easy!

 

Night Before Christmas

 

I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and cut it out using my die-cutting machine and the Stitched Rectangle DiesIf you haven’t embossed before, it’s pretty easy. Here are the instructions:

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy over the surface (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder).  Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it. Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image.  Shake off any excess.  Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so the paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch the magic happen! 

You’ll find all the products I used to create today’s card listed below. Simply click any of the images to place an order or for more information.

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

Happy Monday!

Today’s card is all about foil! If you like sparkle, you’re going to love Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper.  Each sheet in this 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper is double-sided with a beautiful foil pattern on one side and realistic designs on the other.  I combined two of the foil designs to create today’s card. It can be really difficult to photograph foil paper and the beauty of the paper is hard to capture but it’s very pretty in person!

I embossed my sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. At this time of year embossing adds a special touch to your cards. To cut the sentiment out, I used the Stitched Shapes Dies. The scalloped circle underneath it was cut out with the Layering Circles Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the scalloped oval as well as the smaller panel of foil and cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper

Night Before Christmas

Today’s card features Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper and the stamp set, Itty Bitty Christmas. I also used the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder and I have to tell you, every time I make a card and emboss a piece of it, I look through all my embossing folders but this is the one I gravitate towards.  It’s just perfect for holiday cards (and more)! 

 

Night Before Christmas

 

Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set

 

 

As you can see from the picture above, I made a second card using Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the Subtle Embossing Folder, another great folder when you want just a hint of embossing. 

 

To add some sparkle, before adhering the second layer to the card base, I wrapped our 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon in Gold around the cardstock and tied a bow. The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler, on both cards, and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The larger scalloped oval was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies. 

If you’d like to create today’s cards, you can find the measurements below the Supply List.

Christmastime Suite

 

When I received my Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper (demonstrators are able to preorder this suite – a perk of purchasing the Starter Kit), I was surprised that several of the designs have gold foiling and on today’s card, the white flowers have this beautiful foiling.  To add more sparkle to the card, I added a layer of gold foil between the Cherry Cobbler base and Designer Series Paper. The scalloped oval the sentiment sits on is also gold foil. I really think this paper can be used for all occasions, not just for the holidays so I paired it with the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.

Kindness & Compassion Condolence Card

Layered Leaves

Condolence cards are the most difficult cards to make but I recently needed one to send to my cousin’s wife.  Matthew passed away several weeks ago and he was only 48 years old. Far too young to leave us. 

I love everything about the Kindness & Compassion stamp set.  It’s always difficult finding the right words to say to someone who’s experiencing extreme grief and convey that you care. This set has a variety of beautiful sentiments written in a beautiful font. Plus it includes “thank you.”

Kindness & Compassion

 

I used a base of Thick Whisper White with another layer of Whisper White, embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The larger Night of Navy oval underneath it was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies.
