Snowflake Showcase, Fun fold Card

Two stamp sets, matching Thinlits, Snowflake Trinkets & White Velvet Paper. I wish you could feel the Velvet White Paper. It is so yummy! These exclusive products will be available to order on November 1st, and will be available, while supplies last.   If you can’t wait to order these products, you can join my team and get them in your starter kit. Contact me today (or click the Join the Fun button) if you are interested. That’s a perk of being or becoming a Demonstrator, getting to pre-order before everyone else.  Another perk, we (demonstrators) will be seeing the Occasions & Sale-a-bration catalogs while at OnStage next month. Its Stampin’ Up’s! 30th Anniversary. Its going to be a blast.

This is a little different fun fold. Its 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ &    6 1/2″. After folding on the scored lines, you will add adhesive to that 1″ space on the INSIDE of your card. Sorry the photo is a little blurry. The side piece is 3/4″ x 4″ Whisper white, stamped with the small multi snowflakes and added to the front of your card. Your next layer is Balmy Blue, 4″ x 4 1/2″. The Whisper White piece is 3 3/4″ x 4″. I sponged on all of the Whisper White pieces with Pool Party and a Sponge Dauber.

Then you start layering your Snowflakes. I used small amounts of Tombow Liquid Glue to adhere them. Remember, less is more. I started with the large white Snowflake and kept building from there.

Its really fun to color the Snowflakes. I die cut a whole bunch of snowflakes from the White Velvet Paper.  I used Balmy Blue & Pool Party Re-inkers and some of the Frost White Shimmer Paint and Alcohol to each of the Re-inkers, it really makes the snowflakes beautiful. You can also do a little bit of one color and then add a little bit of the other color. You can see in the photo above how the two colors blend so well together.

It finish off my card, I used a piece of the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper, Tranquil Tide. You can find this paper on page 29 of the Holiday Catalog. I punched a 1 1/4″ Circle, and a 1″ circle for the Joy Sentiment. Added some Silver Metallic Pearls and done!

Supply List: All of the Snowflake Showcase items will be available on November 1st, while supplies last.

Happy Harvest Blessings

I love this sentiment. A little different than just saying Thank You. This card has a lot of layers going on.  All the measurements will be under Cutting Guide towards the bottom of the post.

My card base is Blackberry Bliss, then a layer of the Country Lane Designer Series Paper, a piece of Crushed Curry, Galvanized Metallic Paper is embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder, and finally the Whisper White has the can and flowers stamped in Memento Black Ink. Tip: Use Tombow Liquid Glue to add the embossed piece to your card. Adding all these layers without lining them up is a little hard for me, but it works, don’t you think? The Whisper White layer is attached with Dimensionals.  Make sure you stamp and color before adding the Dimensionals, its much easier…….don’t ask how I know this…..

I used my Stampin’ Blends to color everything. The can is colored with Cajun Craze, leaves are Granny Apple Green, seed pods are Crumb Cake and the little yellow dots are Mango Melody.

The sentiment is also stamped with Memento Black Ink and I flagged each end. The final detail is my Linen Thread bow and I added a little bit of Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint to the center of the can with a sponge dauber.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4″ x 11″ Blackberry Bliss cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″

4″ x 5 1/4″ Country Lane DSP

Making Every Day Bright Halloween Card

I’ve got a fun Halloween card for you today.

I’ve got to admit…..I didn’t order this stamp set until recently. Don’t know why I waited. It coordinates with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.

To start I have a Basic Grey card base and the next layer is embossed with the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder. (All measurements are at the end of this post).

I embossed the “spider” webs with Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder, then punched them out with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch. I added a piece of Black Baker’s twine with a glue dot to the back. Secured the other end to the back of the 2nd layer.

The bats are punched out with the Bat Punch from Black Foil Paper and glued on with Tombow Liquid Glue.

For the pumpkin, I used 3 of the Stitched Shapes Framelits, Ovals, smallest one, in Pumpkin Pie and sponged all of the edges with Pumpkin Pie. Glue two together by slightly overlapping and add a couple of Dimensionals to the last one and lay on top of the other two ovals. I hand cut the stem, and the vine is from Detailed Deer Framelits.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings. I used the Classic Label Punch, & tucked it under the 3rd oval on the pumpkin.

Almost forgot, I sprayed some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed with alcohol over the Swirls & Curls EB Layer.  Can you see the sparkle?

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ Basic Grey Cardstock

4″ x 5 1/4″ Basic Grey Cardstock Embossed with the Swirls & Curls EB Folder

Scraps of Black & Pumpkin Pie cardstock, & Black Foil Paper
