Sending a Blizzard …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas ❤ Today I’d like to share with you come projects made with the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle.  I have shared cards with this bundle before but it fells fitting as the snow gently falls.

I love to share the versatility of a stamp set and/or bundle and this is no exception. Today’s card is more masculine than the past projects I’ve shared.  The Buffalo Check background stamp in Night of Navy and the touch of Real Red give me that “lumberjack” feeling!! lol  Maybe that is a bit strong but you get the idea.

I have the Buffalo Check background stamp and I will tell you that it works best using the Stamparatus.  This is what is going to give you the deep colors … You’ll stamp repeatedly until you get the desired richness.  And no worries about shadowing because the Stamparatus ensures it’s perfectly placed.

The Night of Navy greeting stamped onto the Crumb Cake plays well with the masculine theme and it really makes the Whisper White snowflakes pop!!  A little touch of Bakers twine really tie the whole card together.  Here is a picture of the past projects I’ve post (from the Holiday Catalog).

It’s kind of fun to see the contrast between they different styles creating with this one bundle.  And don’t forget that you can “emboss” with the Blizzard Thinlits Die and the Big Shot Embossing Die.

I hope you enjoyed todays card and I thank you for joining me today.

Have a great day and a fabulous weekend ~

If a Hug was a Snowflake …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well, well, well …. we went for 84 degrees two days ago to 44!! Gotta love Wisconsin ❤ Thankfully we are not getting snow, however I am in love with the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle.  Last week I share a few projects with you using this bundle, and today I have yet another card.

Create your own Blizzard …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have an awesome bundle I want to share, the BEAUTIFUL BLIZZARD STAMP SET. The Beautiful Blizzard stamp set includes images, sentiments, and is perfect for creating that winter snow storm. The Blizzard Thinlets die is a great way to give your project snowflake embellishments.

I find this stamp set mesmerizing with it’s fairy tale font for your very own happily ever after cards. This is not just a Christmas card stamp set, think of the beautiful birthday cards you can make.  My daughters birthday is just two days before Christmas and this card would be perfect …

Watercoloring is the “HOT” look for cards right now and if you are not real comfortable with doing it yourself, this stamp set does the work for you with its watercolor splashes stamps. Then you have the swirls (I love swirls … so you?) They add such a fun whimsical look as in our Balmy Blue card on top.

Look closely at the gold and white gift back … Can you see the embossed pattern on the Pool Party? That is created with the die and our Big Shot Embossing Mats!!  Below I have the stamp set and die for you to see …

So now you know that you can create a beautiful textured cardstock with the Beautiful Blizzard  die and our Big Shot Embossing Mats, now lets see what we can do with all those amazing snowflakes when we cut them out …

How fun is it to make any color snowflakes you want!!  Now that would make a perfect birthday card with any of the fabulous greetings in this stamp set paired with a Birthday one in your collection.

Our gift box is so pretty and it is so easy to recreate … the pretty snowflakes from the stamp set are actually stamped on a pattern of designer paper found in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer paper (not just for baby cards either).

I love, love, love this bundle and will be hosting a class with it in the near future so make sure you are on my mailing list for an invite 🙂  Till then … here are some more ideas!

So … what do you think?  Are you ready for a “hand on” class so you can try some of these techniques yourself? I’ll be posting the date shortly so make sure you on are my mailing list.

Thank you for spending a part of your day with me …

I hope your have a “beautiful” day.
