Stampin’ Up Christmas Gleaming Bundle Sneak Peek

August 23, 2019

I got to play with my Christmas Gleaming Bundle with a Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack today!

More gorgeous metallic accents in the in the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper coming in the Holiday Catalog on Sept. 4th – this time it’s COPPER!

I used my Stamparatus to stamp my Deck the Halls in a straight and centered row:)

I did pull out one of my favorite retired Stampin’ Up Pine Boughs Embossing Folder.
I think it gave a great texture element to the CAS card.

I carried over the copper metallic element into the inside by stamping the holly image and sentiment with the Delicata Celestial Copper Ink Pad.
I must say, this ink stamped so beautifully and a photo does not do it justice! I was sure to let it dry for about 8-10 minutes so it would not smudge. I bet a quick heat set will be great, too.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

I am totally over the top in love with the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper-

The rich colors of Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Shade Spruce are perfect with the gold.

A simple sentiment that is perfect for a Starbucks card:)

Stampin’ Up You Always Deliver Gift Card Holder

August 19, 2019

 

I just loved the Stampin’ Up You Always Deliver stamp set when I first saw it
since I have been known to tell my UPS driver that he is one of my favorite people!
However, I made him a USPS carrier fo this card:)

I made a gift card holder simply by scoring a 4-1/4″ x 9-3/4″ piece of cardstock
at 4-1/4″ and 8-1/2″ on the 9-3/4″ side and folding up the edge at 8-1/2″ to create a pocket.

Of course, you know I cut my oval scallops out of the Crumb Cake panel on the front;)

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Another Stampin’ Up Band Together with Bloom and Grow Cut Front Panel Card

August 16, 2019

I used up some scraps leftover from my experimenting with the Cut Front Panel Technique card.
You can see it HERE.

I started with this design but made my split straight across the card.
And since I had a few different panels from experimenting I made another one with a black card base.

I like how the additional black card base really finishes the card, what do you think?

If you didn’t catch the video on Wednesday, take a look now HERE.

Hope your weekend involves a little bit of crafting!

Stampin’ Up We’ll Walrus Be Friends

August 12, 2019

I keep saying the name of this stamp set…and I get it, but then, I don’t know…
it’s kinda hard to say to get the pun!
But one thing I do know, the walruses are just so darn cute!

I did mask off the “hi” to make it flow with the “It’s your Birthday!”

 

Since I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the cuties, I cut out the inside one  and adhered it to  the inside since it would bleed onto the back of the card base if I had colored on the card base.
