Christmas Season in Red

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Still looking for Christmas Card ideas? Today I’m seeing red … Christmas Red. I have teamed up the Dashing Deer and Winter Woods bundles to create a monochromatic card that is simple and beautiful.

This was one of the cards we did in our Stamp Club this month…

Our base is Whisper White (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) and our stamped piece is 5″ x 3-3/4″ … We used Real Red to stamp the Filigreed Deer from the Dashing Deer Stamp Set.  You will need to let that dry or heat set it because our next step was to emboss it with the Gently Falling Impressions Folder.  We used a piece of Real Red 5-1/4″ x 4″ to mat our stamped piece.

Our next step was to cut out the Christmas Tree from the Winter Woods bundle.  This tree can be used as 2 pieces for a beautiful layered effect, plus you can “fluff” up your branches for even more texture.  Our next step was to decorate our tree which we did with the Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels.

The inside has our greeting which came from the Winter Woods stamp set.  The pretty design stamped on the inside and on the envelope came from the Dashing Deer stamp set.  These two bundles really pair up wonderfully.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card share of the Winter Woods and Dashing Deer Bundles. I appreciate the visit!!

Have a wonderful Friday ~

A Walk through the Winter Woods …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sometimes we look for holiday cards that are a little on the simple side, earthy, more masculine … well, today is the day for you. I have a wonderful card to share with you that I created using the Winter Woods stamp set.

I started this card using Very Vanilla cardstock … base is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ background that I embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It adds such a nice texture to the card.

I stamped the birch in Soft Suede on a piece of 2-3/4″ by 3-3/4″ Very Vanilla and then I tied a bow around it … to keep the natural look of the card I used the Burlap Ribbon and pulled it apart!! Love the way it adds so much texture to your card.

I chose to mat the tree with the beautiful Joyous Noel Glimmer paper (Merry Merlot) and measures 3″ x 4″, just to add a little holiday color -n- sparkle.

The greeting comes from the Winter Woods stamp set so no need to look any further, and is stamped in Merry Merlot to coordinate with the glimmer paper. To finish it off, I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

A nice simple layout with touches of texture and dimension to bring our nature scene alive… and a touch of holiday bling!!

Thank you for taking a stroll in the woods with me today, hope you enjoyed the view!  I’ll be back tomorrow with my Simply Sunday series.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Christmas Wishes my Deer …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you someone who loves the look of nature yet wants to bling it up for the holidays?  I have something that may just interest you.  Today I have a card to share that I created with two awesome bundles …. Dashing Deer and Winter Woods.

This card gives you layers of dimension which starts with the color on color stamped in the background … My color choice is Shaded Spruce (with Shaded Spruce ink) which really gives you depth and is matted with Silver Foil.

Bringing you closer to the deer is the addition of the Vellum Cardstock trees … it added a nice touch of a wintery color and is then framed in Whisper White.

Before attaching my deer we needed to stamp our greeting … We used the “Happiest Christmas Wishes” from the Dashing Deer stamp set and omitted the “Happiest” to give you Christmas Wishes in Shaded Spruce.

The deer was cut from this Silver Foil and mounted with dimensionals in the center and I glued the ends onto my frame. The silver turns this natural card into a stunning holiday card … see how easy it would be to turn it down a bit with natural colors and add a Birthday Wish instead?!

This card may be layered but it was really easy to create … now you have the pattern so you can make some for yourself too.

Thank you so much for sharing part of your day with me.  Have a wonderful Saturday!

I’ll see you tomorrow with my Simply Sunday share.

It’s Your Day!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a special card that I created using the second of the two stamp sets offered in the Snowflake Showcase

The stamp set is the Happiness Surrounds Photopolymer Stamp Set. This set also coordinates with the Snowfall Thinlits Dies.

For my card today I’m using a technique called the “Wreath” or “In the Round” technique. I’m not really showcasing that today … I am working on a video to show how this is done, and it is done using the Stamparatus. This is the card we made at my Advanced Stamparatus Class …

The background was embossed with the “Layered Leaves” Dynamic embossing folder.  This is one of my favorites because it goes with so many different stampin’ styles.

The floral wreath was done in Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry with a touch of Pear Pizzazz … these colors were also used in my cardstock layers.  We used a template created to make our wreath and with the Stamparatus the flowers are inked and stamped in perfect placement.

Each of the flowers has a Rhinestone but to jazz it up we colored the rhinestones to match the colors we used, but put the opposite colors on the flower … so light on dark and dark on light.

Greeting is also included in the stamp set and was simply stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White and was punched with our circle punches.

With the use of the Stamparatus … this card is super simple to make. I’m hoping to have a video for your soon. Thanks for hanging out with me today.

Enjoy your day today ~

A Blizzard of Wishes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I see you made it through Monday!! lol  Me too … now we can get on with the rest of the week, and another Snowflake card!!

I have to admit that when I first saw this come out, I thought, another snowflake stamp set??? But WOW … this is so different from the others, first there is the cool stamp that sprinkles down the snowflakes! Let me show you …

See how my Tranquil Tide snowflakes gently fall from the top of the Pool Party cardstock? That is the stamp … nothing fancy from me!! I just fell in love with this (the other reason I bought it will be featured on tomorrows card).

There is nothing lacking on the beautiful snowflake die either, especially when its cut from the new “Sparkle” Glimmer paper. If you thought the Dazzling Diamonds that retired last year was pretty … wait till you see this!

The little snowflake is cut with the White Velveteen paper (Sold Out) and backed with the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper and topped off with a Clear Faceted Gem. If the layering of snowflakes didn’t add enough texture to my card … I added the Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon as well.

The greeting is included in the Snow is Glistening Stamp set and is stamped in Tranquil Tide.  Don’t you just love this color combination!! Hope you enjoyed my Snowflake Card and that it “melts” your heart!

Thank you for dropping in for a visit today!

Have a good day ~
