Merriest Christmas Wishes , Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!

This card is made oh so simple by adding some of your favorite Designer Series Paper to a card base, then making it shine with Silver Emboss powder.

I added some Real Red sponged on the edges to bring it together with the Real Red card base. The Old Olive 1/8″ Ribbon added a touch of Christmas Green and finally a pop of sparkle with the Clear Faceted Gems.

I finished the inside with a beautiful sentiment and added the Tree by coloring each part with the Stampin’ Write markers to make it look like a mini ornament.

Hope you have fun creating your version!

Stay tuned for a new idea each day up through Christmas Eve:)

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

2017 Clearance Retirement List, 2017 Holiday Catalog, Heat Embossing, Something Old & Something New, Stampin' Up, Watercoloring

Watercolor Emboss Resist with Lovely as a Tree, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

In case you missed it, today December 11th 2018 is FREE SHIPPING all day! From midnight to 11:59pm MT everything ships free! You can get everything to create this beautiful card and it can ship for free:)

I created this card with Watercolor Paper, which I embossed the line of trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set. I used Clear embossing powder but I think White embossing powder would make it all pop so much more!

I used reinkers in this order

Soft Sky

Island Indigo

Perfect Plum

Night of Navy

You apply a drop or two of reinker to a window sheet, it doesn’t have to be very large, and add a few drops of water to spread the color around a bit then you’ll flip the window sheet down and smoosh it onto the trees, repeat with all the colors until it looks like you want it to. If you want a softer look, wet the Watercolor paper down with some water before the above steps.

Also a tip, you may not like your product, it is a bit intense until it dries some, but let it dry or hot it with your heat till to dry it out and I know you’ll love it too!

I finished by Heat embossing the sentiment with Silver Emboss powder onto a scrap of Thick Whisper White card stock and popped it up on a dimensional.

I added the trees to another 4″ by 5 1/4″ Whisper White panel with Always Artichoke ink and then added the sentiment with Perfect Plum ink. I also filled in some shading under the trees with Night of Navy ink and added some depth to the trees by adding Pear Pizzazz ink to the center of the trees and finished with a few touches of White Gel Pen.

Hope you’ll give this card a try! Stay tuned for a new card every day until Christmas Eve!

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

A Season of Scraps with Watercolor Christmas, Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!

This is a fun, quick and easy card, and also a GREAT way to use up scraps!

The main layer of the card is 3 3/4″ so all the strips are about a 1/2″ by 3 3/4″. I just used whichever pieces I have laying around and I added in the Champagne Foil I had leftover trimmed up from the Wise Men card I made several days ago! I Also popped it up on dimensionals to give it some extra pop!

 

So easy and fun and really with endless possibilities too!

Quick tip, I used a Swiffer cloth to wipe off the excess Embossing Buddy powder after the White Embossing Powder dried.

 

Hope you have fun creating your version!

Stay tuned for a new idea each day up through Christmas Eve:)

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Wise Men From Afar, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

This set is one I wanted from first sight of the Holiday Catalog, but I held off. I will admit, I have made a ton of cards with it since receiving it Wednesday!

I have another version I’ll share tomorrow, but this one was done as a mixed metals look with Silver, Copper and Gold embossing powder and then I added some Champagne Foil to round it out!

What do you think? Are you inspired?!?

Let me know what you’ll create and I’ll share my tone on tone version tomorrow:)

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Christmas Boxes, Mini treat box, Stampin’ Up!





For the CHRISTMAS BOX you will need one piece of card stock and a Designer Series Paper piece

LID Cardstock to measure 7 1/4″ by 8 1/4″

on the 8 1/4 side, score at 1 /2″, 2 6/8″, 5 12/”, 7 6/8″

on the 7 1/4″ side, score at 2 1/4″, 5″, 7 2/8″

BOTTOM Cardstock to measure 8 1/8″ by 6 7/8″

on the 6 7/8″ side, score at 2 1/8″, 4 6/8″

Someone also suggested to punch out with a 1/2″ Circle Punch on the lid to make it easier to lift the lid from the bottom of the box, that is a great idea, as suction will hold it closed a bit. Just be sure you punch on the side that DOES NOT have the flaps holding the box together.

I will do this and add a pic as well.

Christmas blog hop, Stampin’ Up! November









Hi Stampers!

Welcome to our Stamp It Group CHRISTMAS Blog Hop!!

I hope you will come away with so much inspiration and so many ideas, you forget to do your chores today 🙂

The project I designed today is actually one I just recently pulled out and decided I would redo it again, but until late yesterday , I had no idea I would use it for this blog hop.

It is so simple, fun and easy to create I figured it would be a huge hit to make for so many people in out lives. Especially at this giving time of year, when little things mean so much more than we know.

These would be super gift to give to your kids teachers, your daycare people, mom friends at school…..the list could go on and on. Lots of people might really want to give a little thank you note but not have the time or energy to get or make one, so you could save the day by gifting them this little box of goodies.

Its a simple design, you need a fun 8 1/2″ by 11″ piece of card stock. I would suggest using Thick Whisper White or Thick Very Vanilla as they are quite sturdy and will score and hold shape so well.

Then you can decorate with your choice of Designer Series Paper, or even some thinlits or edgelits as I have shown in the many examples.

You can also make the cards as simple or intricate as you’d like. You can decorate the fronts with 2 3/4″ square pieces of DSP, strips of Washi Tape, a Sentiment punched out and layered on another larger Punch, and so many more.

I hope you’ll give them a try and don’t be like me, give them out and share with someone you love and appreciate this holiday season!

Make sure to leave a comment along with #stampitcontest to be entered to win!

 

Measurements:

On the 8 1/2″ side, score at 1″ on each end

On the 11″ side, score at 1″ and 4″ on each side, you will end up with a 1″ score in the center if you do it correctly.

DSP Layers:

For the top of the box, you will need a piece of DSP measuring 3 7/8″ by 6 3/8″, two of each measuring 3/8″ by 6 3/8″ and 3/8″ by 3 7/8″ for the long front layers and two side layers.

The rest is up to you.

You could stamp a sentiment on Whisper White and punch it out with the 2″ Circle Punch, then punch a Starburst circle with Copper, Silver or Gold Foil paper. Make sure you give it some flair by tying a length of ribbon to hold it closed and add a small bow. Make it just loose enough that they can slide it off and back on and add some sparkle with the Silver Sequin trim.

Make it more rustic by adding Burlap Ribbon, a bow made of Copper Trim and then finish it by wrapping a Boxwood Wreath around the bows.

They may not even want to open it……but they will 🙂

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty
