Dashing Deer

Dashing Deer Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Every time of the year is a good time for Thank You Cards and to be appreciative.  But during the holiday season, it seems like the need for pretty Thank You cards is even greater.  There's Pastor Appreciation, remembering our hair dressers and our delivery men, just to name a few.  So today, instead of a Christmas Card, I went with Many Merry Thanks and created a simple, but lovely card made with the Dashing Deer Bundle and the All is Bright Designer Paper.

Yesterday, the Dashing Deer Bundle played a supporting role on my Shadow Box Card, but today Dashing Deer is the Star of the Show.


Dashing Deer Stampin' Up!

This card couldn't be simpler.  Just a wee bit of stamping and a little cutting and you've completed this beautiful Thank You Card.  My card base is a bit smaller than usual to accommodate the circles and the gold foil deer on top.  I started with a 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" Real Red Card base, then layered on a small swatch of All is Bright Designer Paper and a strip of Whisper White Card Stock with Many Merry Thanks Stamped in Real Red.


Dashing Deer Stampin' Up!I then made my topper by cutting  couple of circles with my Layering Circles Dies  and Real Red Card Stock and All is Bright Designer Paper.  The final finishing touch is a gold foil deer cut with the Detailed Deer Dies.

Inside, I simply had to try my hand at stamping the outrageously cute patterned deer.  A pattern that fun called for a bold color, so I stamped him with Call Me Clover Ink.

As always for your convenience, I've included a complete Card Supply List along with Clickable links for easy shopping.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

 

 

Have a fabulous day,

Spirited Snowmen

Spirited Snowmen Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Here in Ohio, we've recently experienced a wave of sweltering heat and we're simply not used to that kind of heat. At least, I'm not.  To celebrate the break in temperatures, I thought that it might be fun to play with the Spirited Snowmen stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  I actually made two cards with the Spirited Snowmen.  I'll share them both.  They are both simple one layered cards (half a sheet of card stock) that are essentially the same with subtle differences.  Which one do you like better?


Spirited Snowmen Stampin' Up!

Joe liked one better and I liked the other better, so I thought that it would be fun to hear from you.  Cast your vote in the comments at the bottom of this post.

The first one ends with Iridescent sequins and the second was embossed with a die from the Stitched Labels Thinlits Dies.  The snowmen are colored with Real Red, Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends.


Spirited Snowmen Stampin' Up!

The Take a Pick Tool makes it so, so easy to grab the itty, bitty sequins and pop them in place.


Spirited Snowmen Stampin' Up!

Most of the Stitched Labels Thinlits dies are dies for cutting, but this piece gives sort of a pierced emboss look.


Spirited Snowmen Stampin' Up!

The snowmen looked like they were just floating there in space, so I anchored them by drawing a snow line with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  Then I lightly floated a ribbon of light Pool Party with my light Pool Party Stampin' Blend.  Then I quickly blended the whole thing with my color lifter to give a softer look.  And finally, I swiped a stamp from my Fabulous Flamingo stamp set to stamp "That was awesome".

 

So what's your vote? 

Do you like the sequins or the stitched embossed look?

Winter Woods Pillow Box

Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

 When I saw the Winter Woods Bundle from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, I knew that it was a must have.  What a great set of dies and a beautiful stamp set!  I love that it coordinates so well with 2 other popular stamp sets, Rooted in Nature and Lovely as a Tree.

Hint:  The ready made Kraft Pillow Boxes are perfect for tucking in a gift card or other small gift.

Plus, we recently became a Certified Tree Farm on our little piece of paradise in rural Ohio, thanks in a large part to our son, Bryan.  Here he is helping us prepare for a new planting of 1,600 trees.  The beautiful Winter Woods stamp set simply had to hop on my shelf. 

Watch as Tanner Smedley from the Stampin' Up! home office introduces the Winter Woods Bundle, then I will share an easy stamping technique for creating depth on your trees.

 

The Winter Woods Bundle will be available in my Online Store starting Wednesday, September 5, 2018.


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Both my stamping technique and layered dies, work together to make the fabulous textured tree.  Love the way I can flip up the branches with this In the Woods Die.


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Here's the tree stamped with Mint Macaron Ink.  Not bad, but let's step it up a notch with this simple stamping technique.


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

The Stamparatus, stamp positioning tool is key to making this technique work.  Each stamped layer must line up perfectly.  After stamping my base layer with Mint Macaron ink, I then pounced Shaded Spruce ink randomly across my stamp and stamped a second layer of color.


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

I repeated the process with Tranquil Tide ink to get this tree.  I stamped two trees, then cut them with dies from the In the Wood Die set and stacked an curled them for a really full look.  Beautiful!
