VIBRANT GRACEFUL GLASS VELLUM FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Hi, Stampers!
     It's been a while since I've posted, I know.  I've been working on a scrapbook of our London and Paris trip this summer and as one who does not scrapbook (only one previous scrapbook, ever), it has been quite the project!  See what I mean?  How do you reduce 245 photos to a reasonably-sized scrapbook?!  LOL  There's a whole stack of photos still in my office!
     Anyway, let's get to this Graceful Glass Vellum holiday/Christmas card.  The colors didn't show up as vibrant as I would have liked in this photo. The measurements are the same as the card we made at September Stamp Camp (posted Sept. 8). So let's get started!
    Send me an email for a FREE project sheet.

OPTION 2: FESTIVE FARMHOUSE SUITE HOLIDAY CARDS


Hi, Stampers!
     I made some changes, but the above cards are pretty much a CAS from the Holiday Catalog (pp.12-13) of the samples pictured for the Farmhouse Christmas Bundle. One of the reasons I had to have this set is the truck - love it!  And the fence can be used for any occasion, especially fun for Halloween.  I'm sure a few of you are thinking, "all those die-cuts, ugh!"  With your Stamparatus, you can mass-produce and stamp the die cuts in nothing flat!  Seriously.  I gave a little demo at Stamp Camp this month.

CAN"T WAIT TO TRY THIS DYNAMIC TIEF WITH THE COUNTRY LANE SUITE FOR FALL

Hello, Stampers!
     Where have you seen this pattern before?  Look up!  Is there a tin ceiling in one of your favorite restaurants?  I know of at least one here in Mooresville,  I love this Dynamic Embossing Folder, Tin Tile.  It is great with regular cardstock, foils and,especially with the tin-look Galvanized Metallic Paper on p.43 in the Holiday Catalog.  (I don't generally spray my cardstock first, as shown in the video above, and  it seems fine - try using an acetate shim instead.) 
    Here's a little $-saving tip for you:  Do you still have SU!'s Brushed Silver, Gold or Copper cardstock from years ago?  The Brushed Silver especially provides a very similar look to the new Galvanized Metallic Paper!  I'm looking forward to experimenting with it, the Country Home stamp set (perfect for Thanksgiving) and the Chicken Wire!  Stay tuned.
