Now, Isn’t this card just lovely?

One of my talented friends and a SU Team Member, Beth Garcia, made this gorgeous card using
the Pretty Pavilion Bundle in the Annual Catalog and the and the Christmas Layers Dies in the Holiday Catalog.

Beth went all out of this beauty… she used the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder on Shimmery White Paper for the background…Silver Foil for the Christmas Layers Dies… and Wink of Stella on the pavilion roof looks so amazing in person! Oh, and the Feels Like Frost DSP on the inside of the Pavilion!

The Christmas Layers Dies are bundled with the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set…a definite keeper for the stamping tool box!

Stampin’ Up Still Scenes with Feels Like Frost DSP

November 25, 2019

I have had so much fun with the Stampin’ Up! Still Scenes Bundle. It is so easy to make a WOW card with the dome that fits right inside the die cut in the Snow Globe Scenes Dies. If you have not considered this bundle…take a trip to Pinterest to see all the beautiful cards made with it. You may find yourself there a while, get a cup of coffee or tea:)

I used the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper inside the globe behind the deer. Night of Navy and Seaside Spray coordinated well with the hues of blues in the DSP. I used the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Frames to die cut the sentiment that came with the set.

Off to work in the stamp room…a lot of projects to get done! Starting to feel the busy holiday season already…but love the excitement of it!

Stampin’ Up Snowman Season

November 22, 2019

I never tire of fluffy white snow…the slushy, dirty, ashy snow…yes. But whatever the snow, if it is made into a snowman, I am happy!

I was playing around with coloring this fun little guy for another card, and then thought he would look nice as the focal point on this kind of card. A simple change up in design with ample room to write inside creates some flair to the usual opening of a card.

The card base is 4-1/4″ x 7-3/4″ scored at 5-1/2″ and the bottom piece is 1″ x 4-1/4″.
The Let it Snow DSP on the top is 2-1/4″ x 4″ and the bottom one is 3/4″ x 4″.

Poinsettia made with the Stampin’ Up Nature’s Roots Dies

November 2, 2019

I just had to make a Christmas poinsettia card so I pulled out my Nature’s Root Dies and made one. They really look like poinsettia leaves! I am imaging them in white and pink, too. And after getting a swap in the mail using the gorgeous sentiment in the Greatest Part of Christmas Host set, I could not wait to use it! I love big bold sentiments, don’t you?

I remember stampers using the leaf stamps and the dies to create poinsettias last year when the Rooted by Nature stamp set was released. I thought, oh my gosh, I can’t die cut all those leaves!!! And, that would be after I had embossed them all!  So, I thought, maybe just fussy cut them with scissors? YES, and it was so easy…actually, my scissors just glided along the embossed groove that made the outline of the leaf. I mean, it was almost like I could have done it with my eyes closed…well, not really…but you get the point. I had them all cut lickety-split! I mean, it was really easy, friends:)

I found it easier to create the two layers of red flowers by adhering each leaf to a main cardstock circle  so I had a base in the middle with the leaves going around it like rays of the sun. First, I made the larger layered flower with a circle under it to place dimensionals on, and then I did the same with the smaller flower with a smaller circle under it to attach dimensionals as well. I then adhered the layered poinsettia to the card and slipped in the green leaves. The Subtle embossing folder is perfect to finish off a plain panel on a card…just the right touch:) Of course, stamp first then emboss…and you may want to do a quick cleaning swipe across the inside of the embossing folder in case any ink transferred onto it. That has happened to me before:(
