FREE AS A BIRD EASY TRANSITION


Hi, Stampers!
     I've neglected my blog and stamping lately for furniture painting, but now I'm between layers and can post.
     We created the above card at July Stamp Camp (see my post dated July 17).  I thought it might look cute for Christmas with some Chickadees and plaid, so here it is.  I kind of wish the branch didn't have flowers on it and tried to disguise them as berries with Shimmery Crystal Effects and embellishments - not necessarily successfully, but I still like it. Click here for the details.



Happy Stampin’!

SNOW DOESN'T JUST MEAN WINTER! STAMPIN' UP! SNOW FRONT STAMP SET - PSST!

Snow Front (Photopolymer) #150483  $22
Host Code  HJ9CHKVS

  Psst!  Mystery One-Day Sale Coming Next Week!

Hi, Stampers!
       Click the photo to get a close-up look at the stamps and click here to go to Pinterest to get some ideas, from works of art to the clean and simple. Of course, almost any set with trees grabs me, and I love the little deer!  Think about how you might combine it with parts and pieces of your Waterfront stamp set (#146386, p.125 AC) and more.  I love the samples I've seen with the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty DSP (#149596, p.14 HC) as the background layer.  Trees and holiday plaids, what could be better?  ;-)

  • There are so many things you can do with this set. You can create a complete scene, or take little elements and create something new entirely, or create a no-layers card (some of my favorites, especially for note cards). The opportunities are endless.
  • So. Many. Layers! This stamp set was designed as a Two-Step set, so pack on those layers, just like the above Merry Christmas sample. You can layer as much or as little as you want, and even mix in other elements.
  • This stamp set may be called Snow Front, but that doesn’t mean it HAS to be just for winter. You can use it all year! You can even CAS the Congratulations sample and make a beautiful spring scene. So enjoy the seasons, and get creative.
  • I've added links to products I've mentioned below.
Happy Stampin’!

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’!
