FIRST CHRISTMAS CARD IDEA - STAMPIN' UP! MERRY MOOSE (PUNCH) BUNDLE SNEAK PEEK - Available Sept. 4




Hello, Stampers!
     As a demonstrator with SU!, I can pre-order from catalogs a month in advance, so I've had the Merry Moose Bundle (p.27) for a week or so.  I've been itching to experiment with it for Christmas - you know it will be here before we know it!  Links will go live Sept. 4.
     Since I was experimenting, I used a retired plaid Christmas DSP, but for the real thing, I will use paper from the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty 6x6 Pack (pp.12-15 HC).  I am partial to plaids for non-secular holiday cards.
     I used two more new products in the Holiday Catalog, as well.  Basic Pattern Decorative Masks (p. 35) and Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink Pad for the background and to stamp the moose silhouette, which is popped up on Dimensionals.  The Delicata is much prettier IRL - nice and sparkly.
     The card Base is Thick WW, as is the punched moose.  The third largest Stitched Rectangle Die can be used to cut the white layer - the edges are sponged with Delicata Gold. The scarf is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and fussy-cut and the inside stamping is also Cherry Cobbler.  To make a lot of these, I would probably leave off the scarf.  Thanks for looking.  Find product photos here.

Happy Stampin’!

STAMPIN' UP! MAGNOLIA LANE SUITE 3D

Hi, Stampers!
     This is another sample from my August stamp camp, introducing my stampin' friends to this lovely suite (pp. 36-39 Annual Catalog).  This card is super easy, but is not quite as it appears.  It appears that the embossing and scalloped edge were cut and embossed on the front of the base and that the DSP is actually on the inside of the base.  Actually, the scalloped, embossed layer and the 1" x 4" DSP strip are attached to the front of the card base.  The embossed layer is popped up on Dimensionals.  See more here..
Happy Stampin’!

STAMPIN' UP! GOOD MORNING MAGNOLIA BUNDLE IN PINK AND YELLOW

Hiya, Stampers!
     We created this card with the very popular Good Morning Magnolia Bundle (pp.36-39) - isn't it lovely?  No, the beautiful magnolia and leaves are not fussy-cut!  Yea!  Leaves and flower cut with one die (although there are lots of others in the set). We die-cut a small flower for the inside of the card and you can add your desired sentiment at the lower left.

Happy Stampin’!

PETALS WASHI TAPE CARD FRONT - NEW LINK


Hi, Stampers!
     It appears the link to the photos of how to make the petal flowers for this post was faulty.  Here is the correct link.  Or, you can click below on "Read in browser" below my signature.  So sorry for the confusion.

EASY CARD FRONT WITH STAMPIN' UP! PETALS WASHI AND SPECIALTY DSP

Hi, Stampers!
   This lovely card was so easy to create.  The 3-1/2 x 5 top layer is a section of one of the sheets in the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP (12 x 12).  This particular page is sectioned off into gorgeous photographic florals and backgrounds that are perfect for card fronts and scrapbook pages.  I made the 3D flowers accents on this particular floral wreath piece of DSP from the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape in the Annual Catalog (p.172). 

Happy Stampin’!

STAMPIN' UP! SAILING HOME THROUGH STORMY SEAS

Hello, Stampers!
     The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this particular pattern in the wonderfully colorful See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper, was a storm at sea.  So... I grabbed my Sailing Home Bundle because it is perfect for that theme, but I also made a second one using the sentiment, "Let hope be your lighthouse..." from the High Tide set.  

Happy Stampin’!
