Stampin’ Up! Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack

Itty Bitty Christmas

Today’s card features Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack and the stamp set, Itty Bitty Christmas

Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack

Feels Like Frost is beautiful paper with foil designs on one side and photographic imagery on the other. I also used our Silver Foil Sheets which pairs beautifully with this Designer Series Paper. The base of the card is Thick Whisper White cardstock but I used our regular Whisper White for the sentiment and the piece that was embossed with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder. The sentiment was embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.

To be perfectly honest, I’m not sure if I like the added Whisper White Baker’s Twine to the top of the ornaments but I wanted to show you this alternative. If you’d like to create today’s card, you can find all the measurements below the supply list.

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

When I first saw Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper in the catalog, I knew I’d be ordering it but when it arrived and I opened the package . . . WOW . . . this paper is gorgeous! It’s 6″ x 6 and comes with 48 sheets with 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. It features photographic imagery on one side and a silver foil design on the other side. It really is so pretty!!

Feels Like Frost is also very versatile! I wanted my first cards using this paper to show that it can be used for more than holiday cards.  I combined today’s card with Purple Posy and Gorgeous Grape cardstock and the stamp set, Healing Hugs. For someone who loves purple (me, me!!) this card is sure to be loved. 

I wanted Highland Heather rhinestones so I took our Basic Rhinestones and colored them with a Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. Perfectly coordinated! Our Noble Peacock Rhinestones include Gorgeous Grape but using my Stampin’ Blend gave me a lighter shade.

I also wanted the sentiment to pop on the Gorgeous Grape so I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  It was cut out using the Pretty Label Punch. 

All of the supplies I used for today’s card can be found below. To place an order, or for more information, click any of the images below to go to the homepage of my Stampin’ Up! online store.  If you have questions about products you’re considering purchasing or ones you’ve already purchased, I’m just an email away (click the Email Me button on the sidebar of my blog).

New Hammered Metal Embossing Folder

Today’s card might look familiar.  I made a very similar card a few weeks ago but made several changes to this “updated” one. 

Here’s the first one I made.  If you want to check it out, here’s the link to that post.

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

What are the differences between the two? First, I changed the measurements, just slightly so that less white would show between the panels (I’ve listed the measurements farther down in the post). Today’s card uses the Hammered Metal embossing folder rather than the Mosaic embossing folder.  Instead of using the Gathered Leaves Dies, I used our Leaf Punch and embossed them with the Hammered Metal folder. The sentiment was cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and layered on a Merry Merlot oval using the Layering Ovals Dies. 

Hammered Metal Stampin Up

Both cards have a cute little bow, made with our Linen Thread. The bows were adhered using just a dot of our Multipurpose Glue. A little of that glue goes a long, long way! 

Try taking a card you’ve made before and change it up a bit!

Baby Wipe Technique Using Fall Colors

Today’s card was made using the Baby Wipe Technique (I also have a video).  This technique is super easy and lots of fun! You’ll need baby wipes and our ink refills (I also refer to them as reinkers in the video). I used Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.

Ink Refills Baby Wipe Technique

 

The leaf stamp is from Colorful Seasons and because I needed a small sentiment, I used the To Every Season stamp set.  The base of the card is Pumpkin Pie with another layer of Cajun Craze.  

To cut out the sentiment, I used these punches (click the images in the supply list below for more information about the punches):

  • Sentiment:  1″ Circle Punch
  • Pumpkin Pie layer:  1-1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch
  • Cajun Craze layer:  1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch

 

Give this technique a try! I think you’ll really enjoy it!

Come to Gather Thank You

Very Versailles Stamp Set

Happy Friday!

Today’s card features Come to Gather Designer Series Paper and the Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  

Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

 

The base of the card is Merry Merlot cardstock and I added another layer of Merry Merlot, embossed with our Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  

To achieve the very best results when using our new style of 3D Embossing Folders, I used our 3D Embossing Folder Plate . This plate replaces the standard cutting plates when using the 3D folders but you’ll use the regular cutting plates for all other embossing folders. This is the sandwich you’ll use when using a 3D folder and the 3D Embossing Folder Plate: 

  • Embossing Machine Platform
  • Embossing Folder with cardstock inside
  • 3D Embossing Folder Plate

You won’t find this plate in a current catalog but you can find it in my online store here or by clicking the image of the plate below. If you have any questions, please reach out to me! 

3D Embossing Folder Plate

Mosaic Embossing Folder

Let’s get back to my card! The piece of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper is layered with Cajun Craze cardstock, two colors I wouldn’t have paired together had I not seen how beautiful these colors are in this paper! This layer has Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. 

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Very Versailles, and it was cut out with a 1″ Circle Punch.  I tend to primarily use Whisper White cardstock but for today’s card, I used Very Vanilla when stamping the sentiment. It sits on a layer of Merry Merlot cardstock that was cut using the 1-1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and a Cajun Craze layer using the 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.  If you’d like to make today’s card, I’ve included the measurements below the supply list!
