Stampin’ Up! So Many Snowflakes

Today’s card features the So Many Snowflakes Dies. These dies debuted in last year’s holiday catalog and carried over into the Annual Catalog! I also used the stamp set, Heartfelt Wishes and Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper.

 

 

So Many Snowflakes Dies

 

I started with a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock.  Then I used the So Many Snowflakes Dies to cut a piece of Basic White cardstock. I heat embossed the sentiment using silver embossing powder (see directions for heat embossing below).  I adhered a piece of Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper to the back of the Basic White cardstock and then adhered both pieces to the front of the card.  

 

 

Stampin Up Heartfelt Wishes

 

I used the So Many Snowflakes Dies to cut two small snowflakes out of Blushing Bride cardstock. I added small dots of Multipurpose Glue to the back of both before adhering them to the card front.  For some sparkle, I added a rhinestone to the center of both snowflakes.  To complete the card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card. 

 

 

 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch over the surface of the paper as it helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder (Stampin’ Up! no longer carries this product but it’s a must when embossing). 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 and then 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 as your image is transformed!

Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Bundle

I wanted to send my condolences to a friend and made this card for her.

 

 

I started with a base of Misty Moonlight cardstock and then added a piece of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  I used the Inspiring Canopy Dies to make the trees.  To make it easier to adhere the trees to the card front, I added one of our Adhesive Sheets to the back before running it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. It was a breeze to place the trees on the card with the adhesive already on the back! 

 

 

The sentiment was stamped in Misty Moonlight ink onto Basic White cardstock using the Inspired Thoughts stamp set and then cut out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it on the card. The little bird was cut out of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the Beautiful Trees Dies (another set of tree dies in the Annual Catalog). I added a small amount of Multipurpose Glue to the back and placed him in the branches. To complete the card, I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside.

Encircled in Warmth Free Friday Tutorial

Today’s free PDF tutorial features Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper, Layering Circles Dies and one of the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders.  I heat embossed the sentiment using the stamp set, Encircled in Warmth. If you’d rather not emboss the sentiment, you could use Smoky Slate ink but the silver embossing really gives this card a wow factor! You can find the tutorial below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Subtles Designer Series Paper

Today’s card is the same card I shared last week but I changed up the paper and stamp set. This card was mailed to a friend who is back home from a stay in the hospital.  I hope it cheers her up! If you’d like to see the card I shared the other day, you can see it here

 

 

I started with a base of Pool Party cardstock and then adhered a piece of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. This embossing folder cannot be purchased individually but when you purchase it, you’ll also receive 9 dies.  

 

 

 I used the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut a rectangle out of Basic White cardstock and then cut a piece of Pool Party Designer Series Paper (found in the Subtles 6″ x 6″ Collection) and adhered it to the rectangle. I wrapped a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon (this ribbon is so pretty!!!) around the rectangle and tied a knot.  Then I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

I used another die from the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut the small scalloped rectangle out of Basic White.  I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party ink using the stamp set, Beauty of Friendship and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before placing it on the front of the card. To complete the card, I added another piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside. 

 

 

 

You can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Whimsy & Wonder Fun Fold Card

I always love when a card opens in a different way and my book binding card today is super easy to make! 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List) and scored it in two places. Then I folded the card in half and then folded the other piece back (see the picture below).

 

 

I put Tear & Tape on the small section (I like using Tear & Tape but any strong adhesive will work).  I then folded the piece over towards the right and this creates the book biding look.

 

 

 

I added Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper to the large front panel and the panel on the left. I used our 1-1/2″ Metallic Mesh Ribbon and tied it around the left side. Since I used a heavy duty adhesive, the ribbon is purely decorative. This mesh ribbon is gorgeous with all the silver running through it .You could even use this to wrap presents! 

 

 

I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut a piece of Basic White cardstock and a larger, scalloped circle out of Silver Foil. On the Basic White cardstock, I embossed the sentiment using the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set, Versamark ink, Silver Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool.  Embossing is so easy to do and I really think it makes a card look so elegant.  If you’ve never embossed before, I have directions below.  I adhered the sentiment to the Silver Foil and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Silver Foil circle and adhered it to the front of the card.

 

 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch over the surface of the paper as it helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder (Stampin’ Up! no longer carries this product but it’s a must when embossing). 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 and then 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 as your image is transformed!

Ever Eden Friday Tutorial

Can you believe it’s Friday already???  Today’s FREE tutorial features Ever Eden 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper . This paper will be available beginning November 2, 2021 and is part of an early release collection. This collection will be in the January – June Mini Catalog but Stampin’ Up! is releasing it early! This early release collection includes the Eden’s Garden Cling stamp set, Eden Dies, Ever Eden 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper, Ever Eden 12″ x 12″ Cotton Paper, and Garden Gems.  

The following products will only be available while supplies last once they’re released on November 2nd:

    • Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper
    • Ever Eden Cotton Paper
    • Garden Gems

 

Click here for the flyer of the Eden’s Garden collection!

 

 

Here’s another version of the card using another design in the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper pack. 

 

 

One of the products I used on both cards is the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder.  You cannot purchase this embossing folder separately. I was a bit confused when I saw it in the catalog (and online) so I want to clear up any confusion. When you purchase the Bloom Dies (page 157 in the Annual Catalog), you will receive 9 dies and the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. That being said, when you search for Bloom Dies on the website, Bloom Dies does not come up in your search but instead you’ll be directed to Bloom  Hybrid Embossing Folder. So confusing but the bottom line is that you can’t order it separately. Here’s how you can get this embossing folder:

Bloom Dies #155989 – includes dies and embossing folder  On the Stampin’ Up! website, it will be listed as Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder but this price includes the folder and dies

Art in Bloom Bundle #158368 – includes photopolymer Art in Bloom stamp set, Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder and 9 Dies.

 

You can access your free tutorial below the supply list.
