Beautiful Blizzard Sneak Peak

This coming Saturday I will be doing a demonstration of the new Beautiful Blizzard bundle in the Holiday Catalog.  Unfortunately I’ve been sick for a few weeks and I’m way behind where I’d like to be by this point.  So for today’s blog post you are getting a sneak peak of one of the cards I’ll be displaying on Saturday and I likely won’t have a post on Thursday.  Check back next week for my Beautiful Blizzard series when you get to see everything I’ve made.

Dryer Sheet Snow

At Susan Campfield’s Stamp Share (see Tuesday’s post) not only does she design make & takes for us but one of the make & takes is always a technique.  I started scrapbooking almost 20 years ago and card making probably 13 years ago but I’ve never heard of this technique before, we put dryer sheets on our cards and covered them with glitter to make it look like snow!!!!

Stampfield Stars Stamp Share

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.

Holiday Catalog Swap

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.

Little Elephant

 

Here is the second card from my last class. I just love those little elephants, they are so cute.  We only used one on the card this time.  I don’t know who made my inspiration card but I’ve seen this style once or twice before.

Colorful Seasons

My favorite part of this set of stamps and dies is the snowflakes but I didn’t think my class would like to do snowflakes in August so Adirondack chair it is.  🙂  I used a card by Patty Bennett as my inspiration and created this card.
