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.
New items have been added to the Clearance Rack in the online store! Supplies are limited, and with discounts up to 60%, products will go quickly. Shop now and stock up.
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!!!!
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.
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.
Fold the Gray Granite on the score lines (dimples out).
Adhere the Designer Series Paper to the Gray Granite cardstock; the smaller piece is on the 2” section.
Fold the Whisper White piece on the score lines, ½” section back, 2” section up. Unfold the ½” section attach Tear & Tape. With the 2” section folded up, center between the edges of the Gray Granite card inside with the top of the Whisper White against the 3” inside fold. Close the 3” piece to attach.
Die cut the stitched circle from the Soft Sea cardstock. Attach doily to the back of the circle, attach to card.
Stamp elephant in Night of Navy twice using the sponge dauber to apply the ink and the Stamparatus to stamp. Punch out and attach on top of circle.
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.
Using the largest Stitched Shapes framelit, die cut a circle in the middle of the piece of Whisper White cardstock. Attach this to the 3 ¾” x 5” piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock with washi tape. Using Powder Pink ink, sponge inside the circle. Remove the stencil
Using Early Espresso ink, stamp the branch twice and stamp the sentiment.
Using Berry Burst ink, stamp the flowers a few times to fill in the branches.
Attach a piece of adhesive sheet to the back of the Wood Textures DSP. Die cut the Adirondack chair out of the Wood Textures DSP. Add to the card panel.
Attach the Whisper White Thick cardstock panel to the Berry Burst cardstock.
Tie a bow in the middle of the Berry Burst ribbon and attach to the panel using a mini glue dot under the bow and SNAIL behind the panel. (I used a bow maker to tie the bow.)
