Today’s card features the stamp sets Warm & Toasty and Banner Year along with the Woodland Embossing Folder

Stampin Up Banner Year

 

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and using one of the larger dies in the Layering Ovals Dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, I made an opening.  Then I placed it inside the Woodland Embossing Folder and ran it through my die-cutting machine.  It’s important to do these steps in this order.  If you emboss first and then cut the opening, your embossing will be flattened.  

Next, I stamped my reindeer in Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then colored him using Real Red & Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. On the back of the embossed piece, I added adhesive all around the outside edges of the opening and then placed the reindeer piece over it (if you like to fussy cut, it would look really cute to cut him out and then add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back). I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the embossed piece and adhered it to my Thick Whisper White card base

 

Warm & Toasty

 

 

 

I wanted to use a sentiment in the Warm & Toasty stamp set but there wasn’t enough space below the opening so I used a smaller sentiment in the stamp set, Banner Year. I stamped it in Versamark ink onto Whisper White cardstock using Stampin’ Emboss Powder in Silver. If you’ve never heat embossed, and you really should because it’s so much fun, I have directions below on how to do it. So easy!

I cut the sentiment out using our Rectangle Stitched Dies and then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and added it to the front of the card. 

 

Banner Year Stampin Up

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch (Stampin’ Up! no longer carries this product but it’s a must when embossing) over the surface as it 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 as your sentiment is transformed!

Stampin’ Up! Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch

Today’s card features the So Sentimental Bundle and the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. The So Sentimental Bundle (bundles always save you 10%) includes the So Sentimental stamp set and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (one of my favorite set of dies). 

 

So Sentimental Bundle

 

This is a fun layout and you’ll get a completely different look by just changing up the papers.  I used Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and Garden Green cardstock which I ran through the Cut & Emboss Machine using the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder

 

Stampin Up Plaid Tidings

 

The base of the card is Thick Whisper White cardstock with a layer of Pretty Peacock cardstock. The punched pieces were adhered to a piece of our regular Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment was stamped using Pretty Peacock ink and was cut out with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment before adhering it to the front of the card.

If you’d like to make today’s card, you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Pine Tree Punch

Today’s card features the Stampin’ Up! Pine Tree Punch and Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper.

 

 

I started with a base of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and then added a layer of Shaded Spruce cardstock. The sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the stamp set, Wrapped in Christmas. Then a piece of Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper was adhered to the top. Before adhering it to the card base, I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the cardstock.  

 

lassic Christmas Designer Series Paper

 

I cut three pine trees out of Silver Foil using the Pine Tree Punch.  I placed two of the trees in one of the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  The other tree was embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of each tree and then placed the one embossed with Winter Snow down first and then placed the other two on each side.
