Year of Cheer Gatefold Holiday SAS

Obviously I like the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series paper and Silver Foil as we made two cards using this beautiful paper at the Holiday Stamp a Stack.

I particularly like making gatefold cards and they certainly do use up a lot of paper when you are preparing over 40 cards – lol.

I recently achieved Silver Elite status and received this personalized Stampin’ Up! apron from Dale at the Stampin’ Up! Canada office.   I love it – thank you, Dale.  Pam and I enjoying the Holiday SAS.

Here are some happy stampers at the SAS.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Year of Cheer Box in a Card

It’s been a long two weeks since I’ve had a chance to share with you something new!  Today’s share is this sweet card that I made using the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper.  I just love that paper.

Becky Roberts is the original designer of this card and I am looking forward to making many more with the different designer papers we have.

The card base is Whisper White with the Year of Cheer DSP panel.  The box also uses the Year of Cheer DSP and the box top made with the Gold Foil.  The sentiment is from the Merry Little Labels Bundle which has the co-ordinating punch.  It is stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder and popped onto the card with Stampin’ dimensionals.

The gold strip is from the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi tape and the box top is finished with one of the gold Mini Gift Bows.  There are 45 bows in the package, gold, silver and Berry Burst for only $8.  These are in the Annual Catalogue on page 197 and if you prefer the traditional Christmas colors, there is also the Season of Glitz Mini Gift Bows in the Holiday Catalogue on page 21.  There are green, red and white bows, also $8 for 45 bows.

All the supplies to make this card are available in my online store – ENTER MY STORE HERE.

Painted Harvest

Sunflowers are traditionally yellow and there have been some beautiful sunflowers in our local markets lately.  The color is so vibrant.  My card today is a departure from the traditional color and I love how it turned out.

I started with a piece of Old Olive card stock and cut it to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4′.  The DSP layer is from Merry Little Christmas and cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The image pieces are Old Olive cut 3″ x 3″, with the Whisper White cut 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″.

I stamped the flower using Sweet Sugarplum, Fresh Fig and Soft Suede for the centre, and the leaves using Old Olive classic ink.  The sentiment is Fresh Fig.

I wrapped three  three strips of 1/8″ Sheer Fresh Fig ribbon wrapped over the DSP and secured at the back with adhesive.  I then popped up the image piece with dimensionals over the front of the card.

Carols of Christmas Shaker Card

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

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.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Santa’s Sleigh Z Fold

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.

Scallop Circle Card

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.
