Festive Foliage trio of cards

I featured the Festive Foliage cling stamp set this weekend during one of my FREE online workshops. This stamp set is not quite a full background – but close enough, so I like to use it with my Stamparatus to ensure a full stamped image.

Here are the three cards I created. I love how one stamp (paired with sentiments from Christmas to Remember) can create 3 very different looking cards.

Embossing and Colouring on Vellum
Blended Background with coloured ink on top
stamped image on edges only and coloured

To see all the details of how I created these cards check out my replay video on You Tube below, or go directly to my On-line Facebook Group.

Frosted Gingerbread- Another Sketch Challenge

I adore Sketch Challenges and this one from Freshly Made Sketches (#FMS507) is so cute! I actually created two cards – but one of them is also a fun fold.

The first card I created using this sketch uses a super fun colour combo – the snowflakes are Balmy Blue with Misty Moonlight sponged on the edges. The sentiment is heat embossed onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and the background DSP is from the host reward – Pattern Party DSP. This card just seems so happy!

The second card I created is a fun fold card you can actually see all the details on yesterdays blog post.

For a full list of supplies to create the snowflake card see below – each item is even clickable if you live in Canada and want to pick up some new stamping supplies.

West Coast Creators Blog Hop – October 2021

It’s the 14th of the month – time for another West Coast Creators Blog Hop!  This one features fun folds!!  Hop around see all the amazing cards created by our team members!  Leave a little love and then come back to see us again on the 14th next month!

My card uses a fold whose name I don’t even know. Here are a few photos to help explain how I folded it though.

Start with a regular card, 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. The flip it over and score again at 2-1/8″ so that it folds in the opposite direction.

Put a liner inside if you are going to have one and then close the card and hole punch through both (or all 3 layers) using the round bit on the Trio Punch.

It will look like this – punched all the way through.

Next you want to add a piece of DSP – cut at 2″ X 5-1/4″ – right along the center fold line.

Next attach the ribbon by running it through the holes on the closed card.

Then tie the ribbon around the front and back the card – creating a bow on the right hand side.

Next, create a piece to go on the front ( whatever design you want – I used the Frosted Gingerbread bundle to create mine in Fresh Freesia and Gorgeous Grape). The inside will look like this after you attach the front panel over top of the ribbon and DSP.

That is the finished card! Have fun making your own creations with this fold!

Frosted Gingerbread Challenge Card

One of my favourite parts of Christmas time is baking/decorating cookies with the kids. This Frosted Gingerbread bundle reminds me of those days and of my Nana’s Gingersnaps. I couldn’t resist creating with it when I saw this week’s colour challenge at Global Design Project (#gdp313) and the sketch challenge for TGIF Challenges (#tgifc337).

My original design used a slightly larger layer and I accented with Rhinestones. The card I created in my live video, I trimmed the Sahara Sand layer to be a bit smaller and I got bold with the Matte Black Dots. The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon was used to sparkle up the card a bit on both.

The black layer behind the sentiment was placed there more for function than design. It was used to create a wider base on the sentiment so I could attach it with Dimensionals and it would stick to the card base rather than the ribbon that runs behind it.

Christmas Season Bundle

I love making Christmas cards and I especially LOVE this colour combo! Real Red, Old Olive, and Coastal Cabana – thank you Stampin’ Fancy Friday for featuring these colours. My other inspiration for this card was the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge (#HSSSC374).

This card includes a ton of colour, techniques, and texture. A card great card really is in the small details. I blended the background and then splattered it with Coastal Cabana ink and Wink of Stella. Then I embossed the top white layer and the Coastal Cabana strip. I inked, cut and layered up the greenery, then I added sheer ribbon, opal rounds and DSP for more interest. I even stamped the envelope – I LOVE a nicely decorated envelope in the mail.

Peaceful Prints Noel

Today I created a card using the bold Playful Alphabet Dies and the gorgeous Peaceful Prints DSP. This is the perfect combo since the purchase of the Alphabet Dies, Black and White Gingham Ribbon, and Matte Black Dots earns you the DSP for FREE right now!

I also love a good no stamping card once in a while. These are perfect to put together in front of the TV – I don’t need to worry about dropping an ink pad.

To put this card together, I cut a piece of 4″ X 5-1/4″ DSP, then I cut it at the 2-1/4″ mark. I flipped the top half over and glued both DSP pieces to a Real Red card base (8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″). Then I die cut the letters NOEL in a piece of 1-3/4″ X 3-3/4″ Basic White cardstock. I tied a ribbon around the bottom of the white outline piece and attached it to the card front with Dimensionals. I finished off the card by embellishing with Matte Black Dots.

Quick and easy!

Peaceful Prints DSP Gift Bag

For some of you it may be too early to think about Christmas – but I actually try to get the bulk of my Christmas cards made in the summer when I have time to enjoy the creative process. Then I can use the holidays to just spend time with friends and family. Right now I have even more reason to play with Christmas product – the 2nd part of Sale-a-bration 2021 is happening right now! Which means for every $60cdn purchase made at Stampin’ Up! right now you can earn FREE product.

This fabulous Peaceful Prints 12X12 DSP is just one of the great offerings.

I am usually a Designer Series Paper hoarder – but I am running out of room on my shelves, so time to start crafting with it. During my weekly FB live today I demonstrated how to create this sweet gift bag – perfect for holding some handmade cards or a fabulous little gift.

To create the bag you simply need 2 pieces of DSP (any size 6X6 – 12X12 will do) I used a 10X10 pieces.

Then I scored the top edges at 1-1/2″ and I scored the other 3 edges of each piece at 2″.

Next I cut out the two bottom squares on one of my pieces. and I cut the two bottom score lines on the other piece.

Glue the two pieces together at the bottom flap, and then fold up the box and glue the sides together.

For a better understanding of these instructions you can check out my video below.

To create the cute label on the bag I used the largest Seasonal Label Die, the Peaceful Deer stamp set for the sentiment and the Deer Punch and Peaceful Prints DSP for the images. You’ll have to watch my video to see the trick I used to punch out the reverse deer image. It’s brilliant!
