Since it’s December, I’m unlikely to post as consistently as I do the rest of the year but I’m planning to post a least once a week. We will see how that goes since this post was supposed to go up yesterday and that didn’t happen. 🙂
I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches blog and on my first card I used the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper and then I noticed last night that it’s sold out. 😦 Fortunately, this paper is coming back in the 2020 Holiday Catalog. 🙂 But since it’s gone and you can’t get it, I also made a version using the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.
The Feels Like Frost paper is absolutely gorgeous on it’s own, and while I love the Wrapped in Plaid paper it did need something extra so I added gold glimmer sprigs using the Detailed Peacock dies.
The Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so cute. I love the little snowmen covered in glitter. I had a really hard time trying to get that glitter and the glitter in the shimmery crystal effects to show up on camera. The sentiment is double heat-embossed using white embossing powder and the Stamparatus.
I’m playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge today.
I absolutely love the Buffalo Check background stamp and I thought pairing it with the Dashing Deer bundle would be great. I love how this card came out. I even used the beautiful deer die on the inside.
I’m going to take the month of December off from blogging but I’ll be back in January.
A couple of times a year Susan Campfield does a big gathering of all her demonstrators and calls it Stamp Share. One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is the community, I just love these gatherings! We see some wonderful demonstrations of new products and Susan always has such incredible make & takes for us. These are two of them from last Saturday.
The first card features the Dashing Deer bundle and the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper.
The second card features the Rooted in Nature stamp set for a fall themed card.
The Holiday Catalog goes live tomorrow and last week I participated in a Holiday Catalog swap. I sent in this card and got 19 in return that I will share on Thursday. I stamped Lovely as a Tree using Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment is with silver embossing powder.
I created a template and sponged the sky with Night of Navy ink.
I die cut all of the deer and then used a template to stamp them all.
After I was done, I sprayed a mixture of rubbing alcohol and the new shimmer paint over the panel. It’s really hard to see.
