Buffalo Check & Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Happy Thursday!   Though I opted to make a Birthday Card rather than a Holiday Card, today's card features the new Buffalo Check stamp from the Holiday  Catalog.  I paired it with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and my beloved Stitched Labels Dies.


Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stampin' Up!

It was a rather simple card to make.  Everything is stamped directly on the card face with the exception of the sentiment which was stamped on my Stitched Label.  Hint:  Since the Buffalo Check is such a big stamp, it's easy to miss a spot when stamping, so I elected to use my Stamparatus, stamp positioning tool for stamping.  That way, if I miss a spot, it's easy to fix by simply stamping a second time.

My color combination are from this week's Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge.  They are Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Soft Sea Foam and Balmy Blue.

I'm happy to report that this year's Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog stretches well beyond the holidays as you can see by today's Birthday Card.  In Case you missed it, you can also see the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set paired with the Sweetly Stitched Dies from page 25 of the Holiday Catalog Here.

Today's simple card was inspired by this week's Freshly Made Sketches Card Sketch.

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!
