Did you like yesterday’s card? I have another today which I’ve called Happiest Christmas. I’ve used the Dashing Deer Clear-Mount Bundle along with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and some other Thinlit and Framelit Dies to make this card.

Tip: If you are making a few of these stamp and first, then die cut die cut all the other pieces. This will make assembly quick and easy

Happiest Christmas

Happiest Christmas

When using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder you can choose to have the snow falling down or all on the ground with a little still falling. It’s your choice. I have used both in my cards.

Tip: Get more use from your dies by combining different ones in your cards. Here I have used:

Happiest Christmas

Stamp the deer in Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad and then die cut using the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies from the bundle. Make it ‘pop’ by placing a darker scallop circle behind it. Here I have used Joyous Noel 12″ X 12″ (30.5 X 30.5 Cm) Specialty Designer Series Paper and the large Scallop Circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.

Tip: While you have the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad stamp the card insert and the Whisper White C6 Envelopes at the same time

Use Christmas is getting closer. So today I have Christmas Wishes. This is a card you would probably make for someone special as it does take a little time. See what you think?

There’s something timeless about a deer on a Christmas card and I have combined it with lots of Copper this time. This is a CASE of a card I saw on Pinterest with a few changes

Use the Dashing Deer Clear-Mount Bundle with Joyous Noel 6″ X 6″ Glimmer Paper for the card.

Tip: Buy the bundle and save 10%

Christmas Wishes

This Joyous Noel 6″ X 6″ Glimmer Paper is thinner than our previous Glimmer Papers and doesn’t have that backing on it which needed peeling off prior to die cutting. It’s beautiful to work with.

Tip: Cut the Glimmer Paper so the glimmer is face down. You will extend the life of your Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades that way

Christmas Wishes

Tip: Use Clear Block F as a weight on your layers until all have well adhered to each other

This week I have been concentrating on Stampin’ Blends and today I have Bauble Blends.

Have you seen my Stampin’ Blends club? You can read more about it HERE. It’s an easy way to stock up on these wonderful colouring and blending pens at a reasonable monthly cost.

Bauble Blends

Bauble Blends

Use the Beautiful Baubles Photopolymer Bundle to make this card along with the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I also added some Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon which covers where I snipped off the ornament cap.

Tip: Buy the bundle and save 10%

Bauble Blends

Use whatever Stampin’ Blends colours you want for your bauble. I have used traditional colours here but you could easily use non-traditional colours too

Tip: Use a Stampin’ Spritzer with water in it to lightly spritz the back of the card before you emboss it

Sandwich: With Dynamic Textured Embossing Folders you only need 1 clear plate. The sandwich is Big Shot Platform + Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with card inside + Clear Plate.

Bauble Blends

Bauble Blends Basics

More Basics

More Tips

Tip: To ensure you get a good image place your Stampin’ Pierce Mat under your stamping. Stamps need a ‘cushion’ somewhere in the equation to get good clean images. Wood mount have a cushion and so do clear mounts but photopolymer don’t. By using the Stampin’ Pierce Mat you provide the cushion.

Tip: Don’t remove the plastic bag from your Stampin’ Pierce Mat when you get it. The bag will act as a protector and ink can be easily cleaned off the bag.

This month at Stamping Techniques to Try we’re focusing on Simple Gift Bag. Gift Bags and boxes are easily made with the help of Stampin’ Up!s Gift Bag Punch Board or Envelope Punch Board. I’m sure you’ll be inspired by what the Design Team have for you and how easy it is to achieve great results for packaging solutions.

Simple Gift Bag

Simple Gift Bag

Steps to achieve Simple Gift Bag

Buy a Gift Bag Punch Board

  • Line the edge of your paper up with the edge of the punch bit on the board (see image above)
  • Score the horizontal, around the triangle and down the side (see where the bone folder is pointed to)
  • Punch Down

Simple Gift Bag

  • Move your paper to the left and line up the last score line with the pointer/start line and score down the line at S (Small as we’re making a Small bag).
  • Score across the horizontal
  • Punch down
  • Repeat from the beginning

Tip: If using Designer Series Paper just fold all the score lines with your fingers, that way you won’t damage the paper

Simple Gift Bag

  • Use the hole punch at the back to punch your holes for the handles or ribbon
  • Line the pointer (indicated by bone folder) up with each score line and punch down
  • Add Tear & Tape Adhesive to the tab and adhere the edges of the bag
  • Now fold in the base and add Tear & Tape Adhesive to the flaps.
  • Thread Tranquil Tide 1/4″ (6.4 Mm) Velvet Ribbon through the holes for the handles. Cut the ribbon to a point on the end you are using to push through the holes, to make the threading easier

Tip: I use a ruler or something long with a flat end to reach inside the bag and give the base flaps a good rub to ensure they have adhered well

Simple Gift Bag

This is a side view.

Tip: I use where the sides are joined as the back of my bag and ensure the last front bottom flap closes facing the back of the bag

Have you seen the range of Stampin’ Blends? Today the Latte Girls will showcase some projects featuring Freshly Brewed Stampin Blends (no, don’t put them in your coffee)

Freshly Brewed Stampin Blends

Stampin Blends

The Animal Outing Clear-Mount Bundle is ideal for colouring with Stampin’ Blends. Use Animal Outing Clear-Mount Bundle to stamp your images. This is the recommended ink pad to use by Stampin’ Up!®.

Stamp on Shimmery White A4 Card Stock. Stampin’ Up! recommend Whisper White A4 Thick Cardstock and Very Vanilla A4 Thick Cardstock. However, I have found Shimmery White A4 Card Stock to work well if you only use a light hand when colouring

Stampin Blends

Tip: Use more a dot technique with the dark colours and blend with the light or Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter

I love this card as I’ve combined two of my favourite products. The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and the Beautiful You Clear-Mount Stamp Set. What do you think of Beautiful You Blends?

Beautiful You Blends

Beautiful You Blends

Do you ever have favourites? This Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is simply beautiful and I have used it oodles of times. Great for cards and scrapbook pages too. Here I’ve used one of the trimmable elements to make this card.

Tip: Using a trimmable element mean you don’t need any shading behind your image.

Beautiful You Blends

Tips: The images from Beautiful You Clear-Mount Stamp Set can be easily cut out with your Paper Snips Scissors. You can use different techniques with the images too:

  • Colour with Stampin’ Write Markers
  • Stamp on Watercolor Paper and colour the images using inks and an Aqua Painters
  • Use a Blender Pens
  • Stamp onto DSP and cut the dress out and add to a stamped image
  • Use Stampin’ Blends

There are just a few ideas for you. Think about using the ideas for many different ages.

One last share using the Snowflake Showcase today. I have Snowfall Thinlits Embossing which is a replay and edited version of Live With Libby from Tuesday last.

Snowfall Thinlits Embossing

Snowfall Thinlits Embossing

Tip: Colour your White Velveteen Sheets with Balmy Blue Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill and Frost White Shimmer Paint in a Stampin’ Spritzer with rubbing alcohol.

Snowfall Thinlits Embossing

Use your Silver Foil Sheets and the Snowfall Thinlits Dies to create lots of different sized snowflakes.

Tip: You could use Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to adhere your snowflakes by placing the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets on the back of the White Velveteen Sheets before die cutting.

I wanted the snowflakes to pop up so used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them to the card front

Snowfall Thinlits Embossing

Tip: Use Glue Dots on the back of an element to adhere the Silver Metallic Thread. Use your fingers to judge the width of the element and then wind the Silver Metallic Thread around your fingers and adhere to the Glue Dots

Now watch the video and see what we got up to in this fun session.

Snowflake Showcase Suite

Snowflake Showcase Suite

These beautiful samples have been designed by Stampin’ Up! and I thought I’d share them with you as a way of showing you just how versatile these products are.

I love the little tree trunk which can easily be cut out with your snips or just stamped straight onto your card

Snowflake Showcase Suite

I love the Lemon Lime Twist in this card and you can add as many or as few extra little pieces in terms of flowers and leaves

Tip: Use your Stamparatus and hinge stamping to make lining the border up more easily

Snowflake Showcase Suite

Don’t forget to team some coordinating ribbon or trim on your cards. They give them that real ‘Wow’ factor.

Tip: Use the White Velveteen Sheets by adding reinker to a Stampin’ Spritzer and spraying on colour or using a Sponge Brayers or Stamping Sponges to colour it

Snowflake Showcase Suite

Don’t forget to layer elements on your cards to add depth and interest

Tip: Use Watercolor Paper to give unique backgrounds of colour or use Stamping Sponges on the White Velveteen Sheets to add some colour for backgrounds

Snowflake Showcase Suite

Stamp on Designer Series paper to give your cards that extra dimension

Another of my cards using products from the Snowflake Showcase is this Christmas Snowflake Glistening which is made with non-traditional Christmas colours.

Christmas Snowflake Glistening

Use Snow Is Glistening Photopolymer Stamp Set for this card as you create your own background using the stamps from the set

Christmas Snowflake Glistening

Using Whisper White A4 Card Stock gives you the opportunity to use any coloured ink you like. In this case, I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad

Tip: Ink up your stamp once and then use generational stamping or just keep stamping without re-inking to create your own background

Christmas Snowflake Glistening

Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centres of the snowflakes to give a little shimmer and glitz to your card

Tip: Use your Paper Snips Scissors to distress the edges of the Whisper White A4 Card Stock. Use them open and run them back and forth across the edge of the card. Be careful not to cut yourself
