Glitter Queens Blog Hop – Wrap It Up!

It’s time for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop! This month we’re bringing you ideas using Designer Series Paper. My project features Stampin’ Up! Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper.  This paper is on the retiring list so grab it while you can! 

I used our Designer Series Paper to make a little box that will hold four Ghirardelli Mini Chocolates. The box is easy to make and I have a video showing just how quickly you can put them together.

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.

Hand-Lettered Prose Dies

Hello there! 

To create today’s card, I used the Hand-Lettered Prose dies along with the stamp set, Well Said. These dies make it so easy to create a fancy looking card! I decided it was time to do some heat embossing so I pulled out my heat tool, Versamark & white embossing powder and embossed the word friend.  Embossing never, ever fails to make me ooh and ahh – I love embossing! 

well said stamp set

Using my die-cutting machine, I cut each of the five letters, four times in Purple Posy cardstock. Then I used Multipurpose Glue to stack them up, layer by layer.  I used the Multipurpose Glue again to adhere each letter to the front of the card. After embossing the sentiment, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back. Our Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins completed the card.
