Happy Holidays

Today I wanted to share a quick card using the Festive Phases stamp set and the Merry Little Christmas DSP.  Oh yea and the new Stampin Blends!!  Just realized this was the same set I used in the last post.  See how versatile it is!

Stamp the elf on a piece of Whisper White with Basic Black Archival Ink, or you can use the Memento Black.  I have heard some mention a little bleeding if you use the Archival.  I did not have that problem, but it might come down to drying time also.  Die cut oval out and die cut oval out of the Basic Black piece.  

I choose to color just the shoes and hat using the new Stampin Blends.  I used Old olive and Cherry Cobbler.

Attach all you layers and attach the elf to the Basic Black Oval and attach with dimensionals.

Merry & Bright

We have so many great DSP papers available I decided it was time to try and use some of them.  So today I am showing a Christmas card with the Foil Frenzy DSP.

I embossed the Crumb cake with the Sparkle embossing folder and layered it with the DSP.

Stamp the Merry & Bright in Basic Grey and die cut with the Layering Squares.  From the Stitched Shapes Framelits die cut a square out of Smokey Slate.  Attach the Smokey Slate piece, then the Burlap Ribbon, then add dimensionals to the Merry & Bright.  Although you can't tell, I also used Clear Wink of Stella on the light bulbs.

A few weeks ago I showed how to do the Eclipse Technique.  Today I am sharing a quick way to do it with DSP.

Die cut your letters out of DSP and layering them back up with Foam Adhesive Strips.

I also stamped and die cut three pumpkins from the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle.

Hope you enjoyed.

Here Kitty Kitty

For those that don't know very well, I am not really a cat person, I am a dog person.  that being said I do love my grand-kitten Moxi an she is getting better with our chocolate lab puppy Cooper.

Today I wanted to share a quick and easy card for Halloween

The Spooky Night DSP has 2 pieces that have cats on them that fit the cat punch.  So..I punched out one black and one orange attach another piece of DSP, a little stamping at the bottom and you have a very quick Halloween card.

How is that for quick and easy!

Hope you enjoyed!

Happy Halloween

Halloween is fast approaching & I have not posted very many Halloween cards.  I feel like I have been stuck in the Christmas theme, probably because of the Holiday Card class. I am going to share four different Halloween cards I made using the Tissue Paper Technique.  As I was setting at my desk trying to think about what I wanted to work on for Halloween cards I had several pieces of tissue paper already stained staring right at me.  They were all in fall colors, so I decided to go with it.

I thought I had posted this technique earlier, but could't find where I had gone into detail about it.  This is an easy technique to do, but a little messy.  I played with several different color combos at the same time.  Unfortunately I don't remember all the colors I worked with to do all these backgrounds.

On a craft mat or wax paper stamp several different colors of ink pads in a circular motion.  Spritz with water or if you make your own colored spritzer (like I do) use that.  Blend your colors just a little with a brush or Aqua Painter.  Drop Tissue paper on top and let it soak it up.  You should be able to use several pieces of tissue paper for each one depending on how big your piece of tissue paper is.  Let dry, or dry with with embossing gun.

After it is completely dry scrunch the tissue paper up in a tight little ball, then unfold, but do not flatten it out.  The more wrinkles the better.  Take a piece of card stock slightly smaller then your piece of tissue paper and glue the tissue paper down.  I like to use a glue stick for this.  Trim off excess tissue paper.  Take your Black Archival Ink and drag it across the top of the tissue paper and add clear embossing powder.

 You can see each one is just a little different, depending on what colors you put down on your craft mat.

This one easily could of been a Thanksgiving card.

Different color combination, using the Fresh Fig and the Brick embossing folder.

Also could be used for Thanksgiving.

And of course I had to do something with the cat punch again.

I will add supplies at the bottom, but like I said previously I don't remember exactly every color combo I came up with for the Tissue Paper backgrounds.

Product List

I added a few different colors that I know I used for the Tissue Paper, but just have fun and experiment.

Here is a link to the one we did in a Christmas card at the Stampin' Palooza.

Hope you enjoyed this project, if you have any questions please let me know.
