Blog Hop, Christmas, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, Shaker cards, Stampin' Up

Christmas blog hop, Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers! I am sending you all, love and cheery thoughts on this fun BLOG HOP DAY! If you haven’t had the chance to make a shaker card yet…….WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?!?!?!?! This has to be one of the most FUN cards I have created. It was a HUGE hit at my first Stampin’ Up! card party last week! Everyone really loved it, and lucky for them I had two versions they could make.  I had a few ladies who switched out to the Christmas Train from the Christmas Magic stamp set, and it turned out so beautifully. I will attach a picture at the bottom of this post. Also I started out with making this in more of a Winter color scheme, for two reasons, some people don’t do Christmas, and some people, like my friend Ronda always send their cards out late, so  you could transform this into a Happy Winter card instead , if you so choose:)

Well, as always, this is explained much better visually , so check out the video below, or on my You Tube page: Rachthestamper.


To start, what you’ll want to do is choose your color scheme. I have Soft Sky backed onto Basic Gray card stock, with the images stamped in Black Staz-On onto Whisper White card stock. Or you can choose scheme two, which is Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke, same with the Staz-On, and Whisper White card stock. You could also switch out to Thick Whisper White card stock if you think you want to use the Aqua painter and make it more water-color like.

So after stamping your images onto a 4″ by 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock, you’ll want to color them in, and add in your snowflakes, blurred background, etc.


Then, on your window piece of card stock ( Soft Sky or Cherry Cobbler) place the largest scalloped square and run it through the big shot. If for any reason your images don’t show through the way you want them, you can trim up your Whisper White piece and realign them up.

Next, add some really good adhesive to the backside of the window, I suggest Fast Fuse for this, but Tear and Tape will work as well, and SNAIL as your last resort. You just don’t want the snow to escape. After adding the adhesive, trim out a piece of Window Sheet that will cover your entire hole, and press firmly to seal closed.

Add the Adhesive Strips to the inside edge of the Window Sheet. Make sure you add it to the low edge so it will not be seen. It will not matter how low, since your card still will shake the snow, so I added it near to, but not on the edge of the Window Sheet.

IMPORTANT!!! 🙂 Take the paper off of the adhesive strip, and then add the “snow” aka White Mica Flake ( you don’t need a lot) and then place your backing card stock onto the window part. I say important because one of my stamper friends FORGOT to add it, and then had to deconstruct, and reattach her card base ( Kind of a mess), and also if you flip your card, chances are all the snow will fall out and make a GIANT MESS!!

This is really a super wow card for all of the people who will be lucky enough to get one 🙂

Also below you’ll see the great Blog Hop prize we have up for grabs this time, just leave a comment, and #StampIt contest to be entered. One entry per person per blog.

2014-2016 In Colors, Christmas, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, Stampin' Up

LIVE Periscope replay Presents & Pinecones , Stampin’ Up!

Hey stampers! I am sharing a sneak peek of a card I am creating for my VERY FIRST party this Friday! I got this idea from the Holiday catalog. I have always loved the Kraft card stock, and I think this card is such a beautiful way to show it off!!

One note, make sure you let the Craft White ink dry very well, because it WILL smudge if you do not wait long enough. So you could stamp the pine branches and set it aside to dry, or hit it with the Heat Tool for a minute too.

This is a great card if you want to make a lot of them for your annual Christmas cards!

 

Until next time, Stay Crafty!!
