Three Panel Christmas Card your friends & Family will cherish

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a Christmas in July Card that has three pages! Make a Christmas card this year that your family and friends will cherish forever!

I LOVE cards that make you want to pick them up and check them out! Since there aren’t very many ideas on Pinterest yet for the New Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up!, I had to come up with something on my own. I always say that I like CASE’ing (Copy and Share Everything) because then I don’t have to be intimidated by starting from zero. BUT when I do come up with something, I’m usually happy that it’s my own design. You can catch my Youtube video and see how I made this card!

Here is the front of my card:

Doesn’t this make you want to pick it up and turn to the next page?! Your friends and family will cherish getting this card for Christmas!

Middle page:

Middle page of my 3 page Christmas card

And now for the inside:

Christmas in July Blog Hop!

Hey Guys!,

It’s July! You know what that means! I usually do Christmas in July. This year is no different. Today I am participating in a blog hop! I don’t usually do this, so you’ll have to let me know if you enjoy it!

Today I am sharing with you a card I did using Stampin’ Up!’s Bundle Snowflake Wishes! I LOVE this Suite to be honest! I bought the whole thing! The Glimmer Balmy Blue paper is sooooo pretty! There are only two things in the Suite I didn’t use on this and that is the Snowflake Splendor 1/4″ ribbon and the Winter Snow embossing folder. I’m adding it to the pictures below so if YOU want to use it for this card you can!

Here is my card:

Doesn’t the Highland Heather just make this pop! I love all the sparkle this card has in person! It’s too bad you can’t see it, oh!, wait! you can! I made a video showing this card! You can see the video here!

For another Christmas card in July using this same Suite you can see it here. I also made a video doing that card which you can catch here.

For the scores on the sides of the white cardstock (can’t see in the picture, but it really makes this card) I started at 3/8″ and then did three lines in a row, turned the cardstock and did the same on the opposite side. It really adds some interest, don’t you think? I also popped up this layer since it makes the DSP underneath really shine! Of course I had to add the Blue Adhesive backed Gems!

I hope you have enjoyed this post! Please stop back in, I will be posting regularly now! Don’t forget to sign up for my Newsletter! I send out good ideas!

You Can Emboss with that?!

Hey Guys!

Did you know that you can emboss with water?! What!? I didn’t think it was possible, but I accidentally dripped water on a project I was Gold embossing, as I poured the powder, the water took it too and it embossed along with the Versamark!

So, of course I HAD to try it with JUST water, and you guessed it……it embossed! You can see the video of this card here. Here is a picture of my project:

The Gold spots are where I embossed with WATER!
The inside of my Water embossed card!

To get the ‘silver’ look on the background, I used a Sponge Brayer and the Frost White Shimmer Paint and applied it to the Birch Background stamp from Stampin’ Up! On black the ‘white’ looks more silver, therefore this card has both Silver & Gold! Every time I say that, I want to break into song singing “Silver & Gold, Silver & Gold”! I ‘think’ it’s from Rudolph the cartoon, do you know?

I also embossed the tag with Gold and used the Banners Pick a Punch to get the tag perfect! For the Stamp set, I used the Beautiful World Bundle. LOVE this set!

If you would like to see another embossing technique you can check it out here!

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Beautiful World Bundle
Birch

Inks:
Versamark
Misty Moonlight
Blends: Misty Moonlight (light)

Paper:
Misty Moonlight 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scrap for behind the map

Basic Black 5″ x 3 3/4″ (x2), scrap for map, 2 strips for behind sentiment & behind cut out on the inside

Olde Tyme Christmas

Hey Guys!

Easy and Fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card to wow your friends and family! Stamping, tearing & sponging is all it takes to make this beautiful card!

Today I am sharing with you an Olde Tyme Christmas Card! This handmade card uses the NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Snow Wonder. This will wow your friends and family! First, when stamped the image has a lot of hash marks and that, to me, looks like it is an Old Fashioned drawing. Second I tried to emboss it with white and see what it looked like…..not so great! The hash marks made it all bunch up and it had no definition.

As a result, I then tried it in Early Espresso and WOW that looked so good! Colored the carrot, hat and scarf with my Stampin’ Blends, using light colors. As long as I used light colors it didn’t take away from the Olde Tyme Christmas look. Since I was making it look older I tore the paper (after stamping everything else) and sponged Early Espresso on the edges!

EAsy and Fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card
Easy and fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card

Since I colored the scarf with Bashful Blue, I thought pulling in that color would be pretty on the ribbon in the corners. So, I colored the ribbon with a Bashful Blue Dark Blend, popped up the image on a piece I stamped with Buffalo Check and wrapped it on the corners. In the same vein, did you notice that I used an antique slide on the ribbon at the top?! I think that added a more Olde Tyme feel to it! To sum up, for the base I used more of the Bashful Blue to pull it all together! What do you think?

NEW Technique: Spot On!

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a New technique that I discovered that I am calling Spot On! Have you ever wondered what, if anything you should do with your Stampin’ Spots other than take them on the road? This technique is for you! It’s really easy and really packs a punch (which is why I love it!) Want to see it?

Rub the stampin’ spots onto the Folder spritz and that’s why I called this technique Spot On!

Go see my video if you haven’t seen it yet so you can see how to make this! Every card will be different, and you can make it really bold by changing the color of the spot’s you use! This Technique I am calling Spot On! because the name fits! Take your stamping spots and rub on the side of the folder that is indented, being sure to cover the surface with two – three colors (I only used two for all my samples). I spritzed it with an Rubbing Alcohol/Champagne Mist mixture to give it sparkle and to get the color to spread.

Then I put my cardstock in the folder (I used Shimmer White because it is slightly thicker and can handle the wetness without pilling). Heat set it when you get it out (you can spritz once more to get the color to run a bit more)…..once dry, run one of the colors you used over the raised portion from the Folder to pick up the design. EAsy Peasy! If you would like to see other Techniques click here.

Here are two other ideas I used:

Technique Spot On! Using Free as a Bird and Scripty Folder 3D.

And one more:

Another Spot On Technique using Absolutely Argyle Folder & Forever Fern Stamp set.

As always here are the specifics for my Main card:

Stamps:
Peaceful Moments

Inks:
Spots: Pool Party & Blushing Bride
Markers: Pool Party & Blushing Bride
Pool Party for sponging
Blend: Pool Party

Paper:
Blushing Bride 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″

Shimmery White 5″ x 3 3/4″, scraps for sentiment

Misc:
1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding
Elegant Faceted Gems
Stampin’ Seal adhesive
Dimensionals
Parisian Flourish 3D folder
Spritzer, you can use Stampin’ Spritzer

Below you will find a pictorial list of the supplies used, click on any of them to be taken to my OnLine Store. If you purchase from me $35 or more you will receive from me in your email a pdf with 16 tutorials for projects with pictures! I would love to be your Stampin’ Up!

Here is a pic of my card:

Simple Stamping means that you aren’t doing anything special to the card other than stamping. I added ribbon because it needed it! Another thing I added is the New In Color 2020-2022 Enamel Dots. There isn’t any Die Cuts on this card, which I hardly ever do! I hope you like it!

It’s a Mystery Fold!

Hey Guys!

I’m on a roll! I’ve done 4 videos in 4 weeks! You can go to my YouTube channel to see the other videos I’ve done. To see this cards video you can click here. Looking OnLine I saw this fold card from Etsy, she was charging to make that card, and I figured I would try to figure it out on my own. And I did! What is great is that it fits into one of Stampin’ Up!’s envelopes and I made it work! After I saw this on Etsy, I saw someone else from Europe do the same cut but their cards are bigger than the United States so I’m even more proud that I figured it out by myself! Here is my card:

This is the card open. Isn’t that dog stinkin’ cute!? Love that I got the fold idea from Etsy!
