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.

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! So Many Snowflakes Dies

In the last few months, I’ve received several No Contact orders which means that the customer would prefer I not contact them.  Please know that I always send a thank you via email for any orders placed through me and that I’m very appreciative.  If you’ve placed an order and have NOT received a thank you and didn’t realize you chose No Contact, please contact me. On to today’s card! 

Today’s card features the stamp set, Wrapped in Christmas and the So Many Snowflakes Dies.

 

Snowflake Splendor Stampin Up

 

So Many Snowflakes Dies

 

I started with a base of Pool Party cardstock with a layer of Whisper White cardstock that was cut using the So Many Snowflakes Dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  I love how the die, cuts an opening in the paper with pretty stitching and snowflakes! 

 

Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper

 

I added a piece of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper behind the opening before adhering the Whisper White cardstock to the card base. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink using the stamp set Wrapped in Christmas and then embossed with Silver Embossing Powder (see directions for heat embossing below). I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Dies and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

 

Wrapped in Christmas Stampin Up

 

Using the So Many Snowflakes Dies, I cut two snowflakes out of Silver Foil (I rolled up several Mini Glue Dots into balls to attach them).  It was a fun card to make and really quick and easy! 

 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch 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 as your sentiment is transformed!

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Bundle

Today’s card features the Snowflake Wishes Bundle which includes the stamp set Snowflake Wishes and So Many Snowflakes Dies

 

So Many Snowflakes

 

Snowflake Wishes Bundle

 

I used one of my favorites, the beautiful Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper on my card. This double-sided paper features foil designs on one side and photographic images on the other.  It debuted last year in the Holiday Catalog and was brought back.  I couldn’t be happier!

 

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

 

Feels Like Frost pairs beautifully with our Silver Foil paper. I used it to layer the Designer Series Paper as well as the embossed Whisper White cardstock (I used the Winter Snow Embossing Folder).  The snowflake was also cut out with Silver Foil but before running it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, I cut the foil to the size I wanted and then adhered it to one of our Foam Adhesive Sheets that I cut down to the same size.

 

Foam Adhesive Sheets Stampin Up

 

So Many Snowflake Dies

 

I used the stamp set Snowflake Wishes for the sentiment and stamped it with Versamark ink (it’s a very sticky ink). Then I sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder over it and heated it with my Heat Tool. Heat Embossing is so easy and it always adds elegance to a card!

Stampin’ Up! Sunflowers Dies

Today’s card features the Sunflowers Dies and the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder

 

Sunflowers Dies

 

I used Thick Whisper White cardstock for the base of my card. For the next layer, I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. To that piece I added a piece of Playing With Patterns 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and then wrapped a piece of Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon (one of the ribbons in the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) around the middle and secured it in the back with adhesive.  After adhering that piece to the card base, I went to work on the sunflower. 

 

Sunflowers Dies

 

Sunflowers Dies

 

As you can see in the photo of the dies, above, there are two pieces that can be used to create the sunflower, a backing and then the actual sunflower.  I cut the backing out of Purple Posy cardstock and then embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.  Then I cut the sunflower out of Whisper White cardstock. I added some Multipurpose Glue to the middle of the sunflower and placed it on top of the backing. I did lift some of the areas of the sunflower to try and add more adhesive but as you can see, those areas are very narrow. Next time, I’ll try running the sunflower through my die-cutting  using one of our adhesive sheets so that the entire sunflower is secured. But, I may end up liking it better not completely adhered to the backing.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sunflower before attaching it to the front of the card. 

 

Sunflowers Dies

I used the stamp set, Butterfly Gala, for the sentiment and embossed it using Silver Embossing Powder.  It was cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering it to the card. 

Bundle Alert: The Sunflowers Dies can also be purchased as part of a bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Wreath Builder Dies

Today’s card features the Wreath Builder Dies and the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder

 

Wreath Builder Dies Stampin Up

 

What a fun set of dies with so many possibilities for wreath building! You can make an everyday wreath, such as the one on my card today or you can add hearts, flowers, Easter eggs, and so much more. If you pair it with the Arrange a Wreath stamp set, you’ll have even more possibilities and you’ll save 10%! 

 

Wreath Builder Dies

 

Arrange a Wreath Bundle Stampin' Up!

 

I used Highland Heather and Old Olive cardstock to create the wreath (I love this color combination!).  At first I wasn’t sure how I was going to adhere these to my card but it was very easy! To attach the Highland Heather wreath to the embossed piece of Whisper White cardstock, I added Glue Dots to the back. Then, I applied Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Old Olive wreath.  Super easy! 

 

Stampin' Up! Wreath Builder Dies

 

The sentiment was embossed with White Embossing Powder using the stamp set, Field of Flowers and then cut out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing an anti-static pouch** 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! 

** Stampin’ Up! retired its Embossing Buddy but using a similar tool is really important when preparing your cardstock for embossing.

 

Field of Flowers Stamp Set

 

The inspiration for my card came from a Canadian demo named Linda Yamamoto.  You can see her beautiful card here
