Contemporary Holiday Card

Festival of Trees

Hi All,

Popping in two Fridays in a row! Seriously, I have so many cards I want to show you and there’s just not enough time. :)

I created this card with the Stampin’ Up! Festival of Trees and matching punch. Punches are so quick and easy. They are especially great if you are making multiples of the same card for the holidays.

Here’s a close-up of the pearl trees I heat-embossed with Ranger Embossing Pearl in Silver:

Wednesday’s Card: Love You S’More

Love You S'More

Hi All!

This set called Love You S’More by Lawn Fawn is just so adorable. I love how many pieces come in it… lots of different things you can use it for.

There are three separate stamps for the fire, which I colored with Copics and then covered with my Wink of Stella clear pen. Here is a close-up:

Love You S'More

I used my Fluff background with some Fizz pigment ink for resist. I hardly ever deviate from a standard A2 card, but this card just demanded to be square. When I had it at A2 size, there was just too much red background. The square shape just really balanced out the elements. I’ll have to consider that as an option in the future when things aren’t working out. Just a little tip.

Enjoy the video and have a great week!

Making Spirits Bright Card Gift Set

Making Spirits Bright

Hi All,

I was so excited about this new stamp set that I couldn’t wait to show you these cards. It’s called Making Spirits Bright, and it’s from the new Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog. If you haven’t already, check out my post about the products I love in this catalog.

Don’t you think this would be a fun set of cards to receive as a gift? It’s not your typical birthday/thank you/etc set!

I used the Simon Says Stamp Frame dies with each card. The stamps fit perfectly in both of the frame openings.

Here are a few individual photos and close-ups:

Wednesday’s Cards: Penguins with the Owl Punch!

Penguins

Penguins

Hi All,

Gosh, it has been awhile since I have used the Owl Punch. It was time to break it out, but I decided to do something a little different – penguins instead of owls. Our weather in Dallas has finally cooled to the 90′s, so I was in a little penguin mood. :)

And yes, it’s a flip-it card, but I also added a fold-in panel on the right side. I used the Stampin’ Up! Label Thinlits Card die. It comes with a bunch of pieces, including the “i {heart} u”, arrows, and labels I used on this card. Here are a couple of other photos so you can see how it folds:

I used UTEE for the “i {heart} u” and Cherry Cobbler Stickles for the hearts. Here are a couple of close-ups:
