Rustic Retreat Simple Masculine Card

I saw a card with this layout on The Joy of Sets Facebook Group and I thought I would make a card using it.  I can’t link to it but it was made by Mindy Karcher and sent to Sammi Little Offield and had an adorable little fox on it.

I thought I would use some of the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper and the Rustic Retreat stamp set.  I think both of them are great for making masculine cards.

Feels Like Frost Corner Pop-up Card

If you remember, I did a corner pop-up gift card holder for my Still Scenes cards.  Well, I made another with the supplies I received from Susan Campfield because I demonstrated at Demos Galore.  Everything I needed to make another corner pop-up card was included and I even used the pieces that decorated the bag.  I need to start photographing items before I take them apart to make new items.

This time I made it so the front panel is still upright when the card is open.  I also put the gift card pocket on the side instead of the bottom so there is a place to write and I think it helps the card to fold easier.  (Thanks to Rachel Tessman for that inspiration.)

Free Skate and Feels Like Frost

This past September, Donna Griffith and Brian Pilling from Stampin’ Up! came to Minnesota to talk at Creative Connections.  Creative Connections is an event put on by a few demonstrators based here in Minnesota and had hundreds of attendees.  I was one of those attendees.  Not only did we get to see demonstrations of many of the new products in the Holiday Catalog but there were display boards around the room and prize patrols.  It was so much fun.  At the end of her demonstration, Donna gave ALL of us a pack of pearlized doilies in a decorated bag.  Well, I couldn’t just let that beautiful decoration go in the trash, so I created a card from it.

A Little Lace See-Thru Card

I got the idea for this card from Jennifer McGuire.  I thought it would be a great way to showcase the beautiful Stitched Lace die.

The Whisper White is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 3/8″ and 10 3/4″ and then I cut off about 1/16″ from the bigger side. The Highland Heather is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ before die cutting.  I used liquid glue to add it to the little strip of white to create the card.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Still Scenes, Snow Globe Scenes dies

Still Scenes, Day 15

So this is the last post in my snow globe series and it’s got a few cards in it.  At Demos Galore I demonstrated how to make the actual snow globe and I may make a video for that or maybe a new post with lots more pictures.  I learned how to make this from my friend Carole Baumgartner who learned it from a video by Tina Wardell.  The key is using E6000 to attach the snow globe to the window sheet once you’ve added the water and glitter.  Secondly, make sure not to get water and glitter all over your E6000 (ask me how I know this).

The first snow globes I made I used the new Ice glitter…I wouldn’t recommend it for a water globe, it clumps.  I ended up using my 10 year old Dazzling Diamonds glitter and it worked great!  Unfortunately the newer version doesn’t work as great at first but after a few weeks you can’t tell the difference.  The card below is using the new Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  Just make sure you stir your glitter into the water mixture before sealing the globe shut.  Also, you want to use heavier cardstock and multiple layers on the inside so it doesn’t fall over.

I used a 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ window sheet behind all of the snow globes and shakers so the glitter and sequins don’t escape.  In addition to that, all of the die cuts that look like they are in the shaker part are actually behind it.

If you don’t want to use water, you can just use glitter and the Ice Stampin’ Glitter is perfect for this.  I will use a little less glitter than I did here on my next one.

Once you are out of snow globe domes, you can make a shaker card.

If you don’t want to make a shaker, who says you need to.  For this card, I die cut the snow globe out of the front of the card and put it on the inside.  In hindsight, I would have put a white layer on the inside so that the snow globe would stand out more.

Steps to recreate the water filled snow globe.

  1.  Find a glass that fits the snow globe, about 2 1/2″ diameter, I used a $0.97 stemless wine glass from Walmart.
  2. Place the snow globe dome on top of the glass with the dome in the glass.  Rub the inside of the snow globe with the embossing buddy.
  3. Remove the adhesive backing on the side facing up and line the outside edge with a line of E6000.  You don’t want any gaps or water will leak out.
  4. Add about 2 tsp of distilled water (I used a children’s medicine dropper).
  5. Add about 4ish drops of glycerin to the water (I got mine in the Hobby Lobby soap aisle).
  6. Add about a 1/4 tsp of glitter and stir it into the water.  It is important that it is mixed with the water.
  7. Fill the dome with more distilled water until it’s almost to the top.
  8. Gently add the window sheet and push down on the rim of the glass.  If there is a large air bubble, gently pull up a corner of the window sheet and squirt in some more distilled water using a dropper.
  9. Set aside to dry for 24 hours.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Snow Globe Scenes Dies, Catch of the Day Dies

Still Scenes, Day 14

This card was my favorite only because it made me laugh so hard.  When I first started my list of ideas for cards, I came up with a fishbowl.  It looked good in my head and it’s okay if you shake it but if it’s just sitting there, the Shrinky Dink fish look dead.  So in my brilliance, I added a fish in the background…. Yeah, it’s floating on top of the water.  *sigh*  It still makes me laugh.

Still Scenes, Day 13

This is another night scene using only the dies but instead of inking the background, I used Night of Navy cardstock and sprayed it with Frost White Shimmer paint mixed with rubbing alcohol in a spritzer.  The snow is also glittery it’s just hard to see in the photo but I love that glittery sky.

I cut the trees apart and put them on the snowy hills I hand cut.
