Happy World Card Making Day to all crafters!
Here’s a card that we recently made at one of my Christmas card classes.
It started out with Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper but ended up with the Silver glimmer paper as the contrast with the white is more defined and after the image was stamped with Versamark and embossed with Silver embossing powder, it made “co-ordinated” much better with the Silver glimmer paper.
Enjoy your World Card Making Day events! Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
Spooky Cat is a delightful stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue with a matching cat punch in the bundle. I couldn’t resist this bundle and absolutely love the punch.
There is also a matching designer series paper called Spooky Night with many cute images for Hallowe’en.
The card base is Cajun Craze with a Basic Black mat and a layer of the DSP. I also cut a strip of the DSP and used across the centre of the card.
I punched the cat out of another piece of the DSP and popped it onto a piece of Cajun Craze that had been embossed with a retired polka dot embossing folder. This was adhered to a Whisper White circle and then onto a Basic Black circle. The Cajun Craze and Whisper White circles were cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits and the Basic Black circle was cut out with the Stitched Shape Framelits. I finished it off with a rhinestone collar for the kitty.

Today’s card is a sparkly Z Fold Santa’s Sleigh card, another from my White Christmas card class.
I had a lot of fun putting it together but cutting for a class was quite a different matter – lol. Glitter all over the desk after cutting the reindeer, trees and sleigh. I love the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and incorporated the sheet with the snowflakes onto the card. There are so many other beautiful sheets in this Designer Series Paper package that I’m looking forward to using.
I cut some Silver Foil snowflakes using the snowflake thinlit from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. I love working with the foil paper as they cut like butter and they added a little extra punch to the card.
Z Fold cards are very easy to make and they so impressive! Cut the card stock 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″. Cut the band 1 1/2″ x 11″ and also score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″. The base card has the long side face up. Just reverse the band so that the long side is at the back of the card.
The rest of the layers are cut:
- 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/2″ x 4″ (2 x) (Silver Foil)
- 5″ x 3 3/4″, 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ (2 x) (Year of Cheer DSP)
- 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 2″ (2x) (Silver Foil)
- 5″ x 1″, 2 1/4″ x 1″ (2X) Year of Cheer DSP
You can purchase the items to make this card at my online store HERE.
- Paper: Whisper White, Silver Foil, Year of Cheer Specialty DSP, Gold Glimmer Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper
- Accessories: Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits, Seasonal Layers Thinlits; Silver Cord (retired) – optional, Glue Dots, Tombow Liquid Glue or Fine Tip Glue Pen
Thanks for stopping by on another beautiful fall day – happy stamping
Each year I have a White Christmas Card class and for this year’s version, one of the cards we made used the Circle Framelits (retired) with a mat of the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and another mat of Whisper White embossed with the Holly embossing Folder.
The Christmas tree is made with a piece of Whisper White cardstock. It was cut out with 4th circle framelit (counting from the large scallop circle in), cut in half and folded with an origami fold. The tree was trimmed with the mini sequins and decorated with some Rhinestones.
The sentiment from Star of Light was stamped with Silver Encore ink and embossed with Silver embossing powder then heated with the Heat Tool.
Thanks for stopping by on a beautiful fall day.
If you’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for a number of years, do you recall when we made some altered albums using this CD album cover?
We bought them from ULine and in the case there must have been either 100 or 500 of them and while we shared among the demonstrators, I still have a bunch left even though I’ve had a couple of classes with them.
It was time to have another class and for this class, I added some pages with inserts, a waterfall etc. We used the Naturally Eclectic DSP and the Eclectic Layers thinlits.
My sample used the Lemon Lime colors.
The ladies could choose the Lemon Lime color combo or the Berry Burst/Fresh Figs combo.
Here’s Pauline’s cover.
Carole and Janet chose the Berry Burst/Fresh Figs colors.
I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of Diane’s but she chose the Lemon Lime colors for her album. I’ll share with you some of the pages in the next few days.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping – still hot and muggy – ugh!
Here it is the 4th of September when I usually see falling leaves as they turn from the bright greens of summer to the vibrant colors of fall – but it’s steaming out! Oh my goodness, while I have enjoyed the super summer days, I am longing for e thmuch cooler temperatures of fall. It can’t happen soon enough for me!
So I thought that if I shared a Christmas card, I can imagine it being a lot cooler.
This set is carried over into the Annual Catalogue from last year’s Holiday Catalogue. It is so cute with various images not only of this cute gingerbread but also Santa, an Inuit doll, bear (great for baby cards) and reindeer. There is a co-ordinating punch that will make it very easy to cut out the images.
I used the Be Merry DSP that is in the Annual Catalogue to cut different sizes to make the DSP layer. The gingerbread is stamped with Crumb Cake and punched out with the Cookie Cutter punch. Rhinestones are colored black with a Black Sharpie for the eyes. It is popped up on a Cherry Cobbler circle and then layered onto a scallop circle framelit which is adhered to the front of the card with dimensionals.
Stamp the stentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink on apiece of Whisper White and then flag the ends and add to the front of the card.
Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful Labour Day Monday – hope you’ve had an enjoyable long weekend.

Last year I bought several packages of the Blooms and Bliss designer series paper as I loved the colors but the co-ordinating stamp set did not appeal to me. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I looked at it again in this year’s AC and felt I needed it and promptly picked it up.
I used the stamp set for this project.
You can add a message on the back.
Thanks for stopping by today as time for the eclipse is quickly approaching!
Who does not have the Lovely as a Tree set? I believe it must be the longest current stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue. I can never grow tired of using it and at my downline meeting today, I am sharing with my team the split negative technique.
This is one of the cards we’ll be making.
This was a technique I learned several years ago and I was going through my technique book to come up with something that we haven’t shared and I thought they would enjoy this one.
The card base is Basic Black with a layer of Powder Pink. The DSP is from the Naturals Designer Series Paper Pack.
Short post today as I get ready for our meeting.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
