Beautiful Blizzard

Beautiful Blizzard

At the October Christmas Cards Class, we had some fun with Shimmer Paint and the Beautiful Blizzard Stamp Set.  This Stamp Set makes gorgeous Christmas cards quickly and easily!

Beautiful Blizzard Stamps Set

I decided to use a combination of Pool Party and Night of Navy.

First we stamped the “sploosh” from the Beautiful Blizzard Stamps Set onto Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  In a Stampin’ Spritzer filled about 2/3 with rubbing alcohol, I added a couple of drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint.  We lightly spritzed the “sploosh” images with that mixture, then set it aside a couple of minutes to dry.  After it was dry, we stamped the snowflakes in Night of Navy.  I also stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy.  For another “sparkly” layer, I added a couple of rhinestones. Lots of snowy beauty!

I also used the Pool Party and Night of Navy color combo with the second card.  The snowflakes are from the Colorful Seasons Thinlits Dies set.  I used Champagne Foil paper.  Sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and punched out using the Everyday Label Punch.

Beautiful Blizzard is a perfect holiday stamps set, and it has a coordinating die to create even more projects!  Get the Bundle on my online store and save 10%!

 

 

Cableknit Christmas

For this card, I decided to go with the classical elegance of red, black and white.  I used Real Red Cardstock for the background, then the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the top layer.  The sentiment from Timeless Tidings is stamped in Real Red and mounted on Real Red Cardstock cut using the Starburst Punch.  Red Rhinestones and Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon were the perfect finishing touches.

Festive Farmhouse DSP Christmas

The Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper is just perfect for fall and Christmas projects, and I love this plaid!  I used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake Cardstock to add some depth and dimension.  The sentiment from Beautiful Blizzard is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

Tin Tile and Shimmer Paint

October Fast and Fabulous Cards Class

Lots of fun cards at the October monthly Fast and Fabulous Cards Class.  We used two new products found in the 2018 Holiday Catalog, the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint.  Crafty, creative FUN!

Tin tile with copper

I used a 5″ X 3 3/4″ piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot using the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It was beautiful just like that, but I really wanted to use the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint to make the pattern pop.  I mixed a few drops of Soft Suede reinker and a couple of drops of the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint, then used a Sponge Dauber to sponge it randomly over the Crumb Cake.  Love the shine and shimmer it created!

I mounted it on a 5 1/4″ x  4″ piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock, which was mounted on a Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock base.  The sentiment is mounted on a piece of the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper.

We used Lovely As A Tree, one of Stampin’ Up’s oldest stamps sets, to create another fall card, stamped with the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.

Again, I used the Sponge Daubers in Grapefruit Grove, Cajun Craze and Daffodil Delight for the fall colors on the trees, then sponged Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake for the grass.  It’s mounted on Cajun Craze Cardstock.  The Rooted in Nature Designer Series Paper at the bottom is mounted on Mossy Meadow Cardstock and the Petal Palette Sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow.

For the third card, I went with something totally different and totally vintage.

Very vintage blue

For many years, I’ve loved blue and white china and even have a blue and white plate inherited from my maternal grandmother, which I still treasure.  So when I first saw this lovely Very Vintage Hostess Stamp Set in the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, I knew I had to stamp it in blue.  The new InColor Blueberry Bushel is the perfect blue!  I stamped off the lace images, but stamped the flowers and sentiment full strength, then mounted it on a piece of scalloped oval Blueberry Bushel.

This Very Vintage Stamp Set is available to order with any $150 order, OR if you host a party for me and have $150 in sales.  Contact me to talk and get your party on the books!
