Measurements:

Cherry Cobbler cardstock5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, 7/8” x 4 7/8”
Basic White cardstock(2) 3 ¾” x 5”
Basic White Thick cardstock¾” x 4 ¾”

Instructions:

  1. Apply an even amount of adhesive to one of the Basic White cardstock pieces. (I used my Xyron machine, but you can use the adhesive sheets or a two-way glue that is still stick once it dries.)
  2. Rip the napkin at an angle so you can peal off the top layer. Lay the napkin piece upside down and attach the Basic White cardstock piece with adhesive to the back.  Either cut off the excess or put adhesive on the back of the cardstock and fold the extra over.
  3. Using the Banners Pick-a-Punch, punch the left end of the Cherry Cobbler cardstock small piece.
  4. Using the Banners Pick-a-Punch, punch the left end of the Basic White Thick cardstock piece and then stamp using Cherry Cobbler ink.  Adhere to the Cherry Cobbler piece.
  5. Adhere napkin panel to the cardbase.
  6. Adhere sentiment banner to the cardbase using dimensionals as shown.
  7. Add some gems.

Poinsettia Prints

It’s the last week for Sale-a-Bration! If there is something you want, you should order now.

Today I’m using the Peaceful Prints patterned paper and the Poinsettia Petals stamp set with coordinating dies. I’ve had this poinsettia on my craft table since July and this sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge just called to me to use it. The poinsettia is really soft in person because I made it with the Snowy White velvet sheets. I had a hard time photographing the details on the poinsettia.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets – Poinsettia Petals
Die Cutting & Embossing – Poinsettia dies, Tasteful Labels dies
Ink – Cherry Cobbler stamp pad, Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad, Whisper White stamp pad
Paper – Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper, Basic Black cardstock, Basic White cardstock, Snowy White Velvet sheets, Be Dazzling Specialty paper
Coloring Tools – White embossing powder
Tools – Paper Trimmer, Simply Scored, Stamparatus, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, Heat tool
Adhesive – Stampin’ SEAL, Black Stampin’ Dimensionals, liquid glue

Joy of Sets Blog Hop – Christmas Music

This month the final hop for the Joy of Sets and the theme is Christmas Music. I choose to create a card using “White Christmas” as my theme because it’s one of my favorite songs and movies.

The poinsettia is die cut out of Whisper White Thick cardstock and vellum. I used a blending brush to add Balmy Blue ink to the centers for some definition. Then I layered everything together. I don’t think my photography skills do this card justice, I really like how it turned out.

Paper Pumpkin November 2020 Alternative

I loved this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit with the gingerbread house gift card holders but I didn’t need 15 of those so I made a card out of some of the remaining pieces. I also created a card using current Stampin’ Up! products in case you missed out on the Paper Pumpkin kit.

This is what the kit was designed for.

For the gingerbread house I created, I cut both the Cinnamon Cider and Whisper White pieces of cardstock to 2 1/4″ x 4″. I marked 3/4″ down each side of the Cinnamon Cider cardstock, drew a line up to the middle, and cut off the corners. I repeated with the Whisper White cardstock before cutting 1/8″ off each side and 1/4″ off the bottom. (It really bugs me if angles aren’t the same.) I then used the stitched scallop border to edge the Whisper White cardstock.

I used the white chalk pen to add dots around the Cinnamon Cider piece and used dimensionals to attach the embossed Whisper White piece. The pearls were colored with dark Stampin’ Blends markers in Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, and Shaded Spruce.

To create the door hole, I used a 3/4″ circle punch and cut straight down. (We no longer sell a 3/4″ circle punch but you should be able to find one.) The snowbank is hand but because I don’t have the Curvy dies.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets – Poinsettia Petals
Die Cutting & Embossing – Majestic Mountains dies, Tin Tile 3D embossing folder
Ink – Blushing Bride
Paper – Cinnamon Cider cardstock, Mint Macaron cardstock, Shaded Spruce cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Snowflake Splendor designer series paper
Accents & Embellishments – basic pearls, Wonderful Gems
Coloring Tools – dark Stampin’ Blends in Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, and Shaded Spruce. White Stampin’ Chalk Marker
Tools – Paper Trimmer, Simply Scored, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, Take Your Pick
Adhesive – Stampin’ SEAL, Stampin’ Dimensionals

November Technique Blog Hop

This month the technique is emboss resist, one of my favorite techniques. I embossed both the background and the poinsettia using clear embossing powder on Whisper White Thick cardstock. (I think that the clear embossing powder stains less than the white but I haven’t actually done a thorough investigation.) For the poinsettias, I inked them with a makeup brush and Balmy Blue ink before I die cut them. The background I used a makeup brush and Highland Heather ink.

Plaid Poinsettia Petals

I started with a black and white plaid paper from the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ designer series paper and inked it with Real Red. I started with spraying a mixture of Real Red re-inker and rubbing alcohol on the paper but it didn’t get dark enough, so I used my make up brush to ink it.

Poinsettia Petals Magic & Wonder

I embossed the red velvet paper for this background. It’s pretty but not as pretty as the poinsettias are when I use them to emboss the red velvet paper. I think I will save it for poinsettias. I still have some white flocked paper from last year that I should pull out and use for poinsettias, I bet that would be pretty too.

Poinsettia Petal

I’m making a card and I’m not using the Snowflake Splendor Suite! Can you believe it? 🙂

I recently purchased the Poinsettia Petals bundle and I wanted to play with it and the Red Velvet Paper because the embossing on the Red Velvet Paper is gorgeous. I didn’t get a great photo with the little die but I plan to use it with the large poinsettia dies for my card class to go next month.

To get the little poinsettia’s to curl up, I gently used my finger nail.

Stamp Sets – Poinsettia Petals
