Technique Tuesday: Colored Foils

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m excited to share my card with you today because not only am I using the awesome new Blended Seasons stamp set and coordinating stitched dies but I have a really cool technique too!!  Not only that … I’ve taken an old favorite and incorporated it into the card as well.

The card was created for my “Color Your Season” Class that I hosted last week … we made a Spring, Wedding, Autumn and a Christmas card, it is the Christmas card that I will be sharing with you.

This was the card that changed 3 times before I got to what you will see today … it was all about the background, but once I picked up the Wood Textures Designer paper … I knew that was it!!  You see, I have already pulled out the circle die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies to create my wreath.

The holly was stamped on Very Vanilla and colored with the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and then cut into sections and wrapped around the wreath.  Our bow was created using the Silver Foil paper and the die from the bundle … then, I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and colored it!! I wanted red and I wanted the shine!! It works beautifully.  You can do it before or after you die cut.

Can you image ALL the new Foil colors you can now use on your projects!! Amazing and soooo easy.  And because the Stampin’ Blends are alcohol markers it dries quickly.

The greeting is from the Blended Seasons stamp set and was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and punched with the Triple Banner punch.  I also sponged the banner with Sahara Sand to age it a little.  The combination of all these single entities created a warm holiday card.

The red foil bow just adds a special touch to the card and really helps make it pop.  I also added just a touch of the Wink of Stella onto the holly berries.  You could also use the glue from the Fine Tip Glue pen … that will also give it a shine.

Thank you for stopping back to check out my blog post today.  You can purchase any of the items used for today’s card by clicking on any of the items listed below.

Have a wonderful day ~

Simply Sunday … Christmas in July

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared the specials that will be gone at the end of July and the new ones that will be starting in August … so today I want to share a beautiful card that marries two of them together!  I’m using the Blended Seasons bundle from the Color Your Season Limited Time promotions with the Designer Series Paper.

We made this card at my Star’s Team meeting yesterday along with a fall card from the same bundle … plus swapping with the other ladies who attended. It was a wonderful day reconnecting, fun, stamping and introducing new members.

I began with the “Under the Mistletoe” Designer Series paper (currently on sale) and teamed it up with the Blended Seasons Stamp Set in which I used the Holly Spray and the Merry Christmas Greeting.  I used the “second” of the three shaped dies to cut Whisper White.  These dies have the stitching of “both” sides of the cut!! So you can use the shape and the cut out for your cardmaking.

Once the shape is cut out, I stamped the holly spray on the top and bottom … it fits in there so nice!!

We then used the Stampin’ Blends to color our holly.  We used the coordinating Old Olive Stampin’ Blends along with the Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight. They works so nicely with this bundle.  You will also love the Watercolor Pencils in the new colors. Either one you use … a touch of Stella won’t hurt!!

I stamped the greeting onto a strip of Real Red cardstock and punched the ends with the Triple Banner punch. The entire piece was popped up and the completes my Christmas in July card for today!

I will keep the promotions listed below until the end of the month …
