Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Blizzard

Hi Friends,

Once my mind has accepted the fact that snow is tight around my corner, I DO get excited about pretty snowy cards!

AND THIS IS ONE!

I used Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Whisper White card stock.

Stamping with a variety of the snowflake stamps and both corresponding inks was fun –it was completely random!

You can see the shimmery snowflakes?

I used the Blizzard Thinlit Die with Sparkle Glimmer Paper! 

Of course you can see the Rhinestone Jewel in the center of a few of the snowflakes–a little extra bling!

Petal Promenade DSP and Fresh Fig Paper!

Hi Friends,

I LOVE the Petal Promenade Designer Series paper.

The colors are soft and romantic and really have such versatility!

Petal Promenade Designer Series and Fresh Fig Card pare make this a simpple yet elegant card. I also used the Foil-Edged rads and Envelopes in SIlver.

See how beautiful that paper is! There are 4 sheets with trimmable elements–just like the one I used.

For a bit of contrast, I used the Galvanized Metallic paper to border the DSP. Then I added the message and layered it using Layering Ovals Framelits . A little Fresh Fig Shear ribbon for a pop of interest.

I did emboss the Fresh Fig card stock using the Layered Leaves Folder.

What do you think?

The base was made with Gray Granite at 8 1/2 x 4 1/4–scored at 4 1/4″.

The next layer is Fresh Fig cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ and embossed.

Then the DSP was cut at 3″ square and layered onto a piece of the Galvanized Metallic paper (cut 3 1/4″ square), using Snail Adhesive.

That layer was attached using Dimensionals

Then the message was stamped and pushed through the Big Shot using layering Ovals.

I did the same with a piece of Fresh Fig to back the white layer.

Lastly I cut a piece of the Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon and attached to the back of the oval.

I can NOT say enough about how much I LOVE the Foil-Edged Cards and Envelopes! They come in either gold or silver and add such a degree of elegance, in my humble opinion!

They are so easy to use and certainly lend a air of elegance to any card you make!

Still Night with Owl

Hi Friends,

This Stampin’ Up!  Still Night Christmas  stamp set is so beautiful!

I love making handmade cards and this set is so realistic.

Stampin' Up! Still Night Bundle handmade card

The owl seems to be overseeing the lay of the land at this peaceful time of the year.

To get the om bray effect, I used Night of Navy ink with my brayer.

Stampin' Up! hand made Christmas card using Still Night Bundle

To make the moon, I took a 1/3/4″ circle and sponged Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight ink on it.

After stamping the owl and branches, I ran them through the Big Shot using the Night Owl Thinlits.

Popped the owl on with Dimensionals then the moon and branch with Fine Tip Glue.

Then I added the message and snailed that on. 

I had to add stars in the sky with White Craft ink and of COURSE they had to sparkle a bit -so out came the Wink of Stella!

Ta-da!

Stampin’ Up! Alpine Adventure Christmas

Hi Friends,

This handmade Stampin’ Up! Christmas card is so reminiscent of times past.

The old fashioned skis, sled, and snow shoes remind me when I was a little girl………….

So onto the card!

Stampin' Up! hand made Christmas card using Alpine Adventure Bundle

I used Real Red, Early Expresso and Very Vanilla card stocks plus the stamp set Alpine Adventure and corresponding Alpine Sports Thinlits.

It was fun using the Buffalo Check stamp with Memento Ink on the Real Red base.

You sure gets LOTS of mileage out of THAT stamp!

The sled was fun to create –two different cut outs then a little snip here and there and voila!

I did add a bit of gold thread for the pull rope and of course splashes of Wink of Stella here and there!

How cute is that???

The greetings came from Merry Christmas to All and Alpine Adventure stamp sets.

Stampin’ Up! Farmhouse Christmas!

Hi Friends,

When I first saw this Stampin’ Up! Farmhouse Christmas stamp set, it reminded me of the town I grew up in.

The Ice Man, Fish Man, Rag Man and dairy farmers ALL had pick ups just like this one!

And I remember at Christmas, trees were delivered and picked up in this same truck.

Stampin' Up! handmade Christmas card using Farmhouse Christmas  When I saw this stamp set, I KNEW I had to have it!

First I took  a base of Cherry Cobbler then layered a piece of Mossy Meadow on top.

I did run that layer through the Big Shot with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder.

Using the Festive Farmhouse DSP, I added a strip to balance the Mossy Meadow layer.

Next I added a piece of Burlap ribbon and beveled and frayed the edges.

Stampin' Up! handmade Farmhouse Christmas card

I colored the truck image with our Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Daffodil Delight.

Then I cut that image out with the Layering Ovals and backed it with a Cherry Cobbler layer.

Dimensionals popped it up for added interest!

Added a few Rhinestones for the headlights and of course pops of Wink of Stella –and ta-da!
