HOLLY BERRY BOUQUET CARD

Here is another make 'n take we did at my recent open house:

Holly Berry Bouquet

Peace, Love & Joy Christmas Card

  1. Take your Chocolate Chip cardstock and score at 4-1/4" on the brand new Simply Scored Tool  from Stampin' Up! 
  2. Fold your card with the fold at the left hand side.  Flat tape the Certain Celery cardstock to the card front with Snail Adhesive.
  3. Take the designer paper and flat tape to the Chocolate Chip mat.  Flat tape this to the card front about 1/2" from the folded edge.
  4. Stamp "Peace, Love, Joy" in the upper right hand corner of your card, on the Certain Celery mat with Chocolate Chip Ink.
  5. Take the pine cone stamp and color it with the Stampin' Write Markers.  Color the pine cones with Chocolate Chip; the berries with Cherry Cobbler; the rest with Certain Celery.  Now add a bit of shading to the holly leaves with Pear Pizazz marker.  Huff on the stamp to make the inks moist and stamp on the small Whisper White piece of cardstock. 
  6. Punch out your stamped image with the 1-1/2" Circle Punch.  Flat tape this to the Cherry Cobbler Scallop Circle.
  7. Flat tape this to the larger Certain Celery Scallop and then mount this to the large Chocolate Chip Circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  8. Mount this entire piece to the card front as seen on the sample with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  9. Tie the quilted Expresso Ribbon into a bow and mount between the stamped greeting and the mounted pinecone image using a Mini Dot
  10. Your done!  Great job!

OUT ON A LIMB CARD

Here is one of the make 'n takes that we did at the Holiday Mini Open House on Saturday.

Out On a Limb Card 

Out On a Limb Halloween Card Directions

  1. Take the Old Olive mat and sponge all the edges with Basic Black Classic Ink.  Flat tape this piece to the card front using Snail Adhesive.
  2. Tape the Cajun-Black dotted designer paper to one of the Basic Black cardstock mat.  Tape to the card front,  left side of the card as shown, using Snail Adhesive.
  3. Tape the Olive-Black cats designer paper to the other Basic Black card stock mat.  Tape to the right hand side of the card front, slightly overlapping the previous piece.
  4. Take the Whisper White card stock and stamp the Witch, the cat, the broom and the tree branch using black ink. 
  5. Punch out the cat using the small oval punch.  Flat tape this to the Scalloped Oval Black mat and flat tape to the large oval Old Olive mat.  Pop this on to the bottom center of the polka-dot designer paper using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. Punch out the witch using the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.  Flat tape to the Black 2" Circle Mat.  Using the piercing mat and piercing tool punch a hole in each of the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle, scallops.  Flat tape the matted witch to this.  Attach to the matted cat piece using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  7. Carefully cut out the broom and the tree branch using the paper snip scissors.  Apply snail to the backs and position the broom under the witch and the branch under the cat.
  8. Using Stampin' Markers, color the cats eyes and the witches hair with Delightful Daffodil; color the witches stockings and the cat's nose with Pumpkin Pie; and finally color the broom bristles with Crumb Cake.
  9. Ink up the "happy halloween" greeting, with Basic Black Ink and stamp on the upper left hand corner or the lower right hand corner if you prefer.
  10. Cut a 3" piece of Black Satin Ribbon and tie in a knot in the center.  Trim and adhere to the upper part of the black cat mat using a Mini Glue Dot on the back of the dot!
  11. Stamp another image of your choice from the set in black ink and punch out with the 1-1/2" Circle Punch.  Mount on the extra 1-3/4" Black Circle and adhere to your card inside.
  12. Using a small amount of Dazzling Details add a little sparkle to the broom and the branches of the tree.  Allow to dry thoroughly before placing the card in your clear envelope.
  13. Congratulations you are finished.

 

 

Look What You Missed!

Saturday was lots of fun at the Holiday Mini Open House!  We stamped, we laughed, we ate sweets and we ordered lots of new goodies for our stamping obsessions!  Did I mention that there were hourly prizes and Jennifer Grace got to go on a $100 shopping spree for free when she won the Grand prize for the day!

IS IT CHRISTMAS YET CLASS

I know everyone likes to get a head start on their Christmas cards so I'm offering this class to show case some of the great new products in the Holiday Mini.  Did you know that the Holiday Mini has Pewter Embossing Powder, Miniature Jingle Bells, Quilted Ribbon and Sparkling Silver Specialty Cardstock?

Pewter Embossed Card 
This card has them all!

How about Vanilla Velvet Ribbon and Sparkling Polka Dot Paper found in the Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty Paper?

Snow Flakes & Sparkles
First time I've ever combined both Very Vanilla and Whisper White in the same card.  What do you think?

Christmas Is Love Trees

What would Christmas be without Christmas Trees trimmed in Gold?  Did you know that Smooch is the perfect medium for all your holiday card decorating?  LOL

Merry Christmas Ornament
This card fits our small open ended envelopes.  It's nice to try a variety of card sizes, I get bored of just the standards all the time.  I love how easy it is to line up multiple images with our Acrylic Blocks and Rubber Mounted Stamps.  Didn't even use a Stamp-a-ma-Jig to line up the multiple Greetings.

Double Embossed Tree
This is for those who love the classical look, lots of swirls and glimmer in this double embossed card.  The tree doesn't really show off just how sparkly it is for the camera but believe me it's dazzling!  So if you would like to join in the fun and try out a great variety of products for Christmas, sign up today.

Is It Christmas Yet Class
