This is a girl's version of my Congratulations card using Stampin' Up! stamp set Extreme Elements and brayer.
Now is a great time to book a workshop with me and learn more techniques and products that Stampin' Up! have to offer. You can contact me here.
I decoupage Popcorn the Bear a couple of weeks ago the papers were included in a magazine I purchased - Crafters' Companion (Make Christmas Cards), fantastic magazine loved every page. I then made the spring card and added him to it. Merry Christmas to you all!!!
I really enjoyed using the Welcome Christmas stamp set and the Top Note die-cut by Stampin' Up! This card is slightly different to my last posting, I adding gold border stickers and with the Season's Greeting I stamp this twice, chocolate chip then real red cutting the red one and mounting that on top of the other with 3D foam.
I was using the Big Shot the other day and decided to make more of the Top Notes, adding them to my Christmas card I was making and with the Tag punches and Welcome Christmas stamp set from Stampin' Up! this didn't take long to complete.
If you are a last minute person then this is the card for you so get your punches, cut your papers and card stock, tie a bow, stamp a couple of images and put the whole thing together with snail adhesive. Making Christmas card doesn't have to be daunting, I made 5 at the same time - I hope this will inspire you to give it a try.
I made scented soap and wanted to give some out during Christmas so I wrapped each one with clear cellophane. Using the Big Shot-(113439) and Stampin' Up! Top Note Bigz Die-(113463) I made two top notes and with Real Red A4 card stock-(106578), I stamped Season of Joy-(113023) randomly over the top note with Real Read ink pad-(103133). Before attached the top notes on each side of the soap with Sticky Strip (104294). I used the the Extra-Large Tag punch-(119866) and the Large Tag punch-(119876) to make a gift tag and attached it to the top note with ribbon.
You can use any soap but if you want to make scented soap click HERE or you can find the recipe at the side bar under FREEBIES.
2. Stir in food colouring into the melted soap before pouring the soap into the molds. If you want to make your soap scented add 8-10 drops of scented oil.
3. Allow to dry overnight then remove from soap mold and enjoy a chemical free soap.
When it comes to stamping I love owls so when I received by Owl Punch by Stampin' Up! you can image how excited I was. I dressed him up with Christmas colours - isn't he cute! I also used the Scallop Trim Border, Modern Label and the Scallop Punch to make this card. I inked the circle scallop with Chocolate Chip ink and using my paper-piercing tool to punch holes around the scallop. For the label I used a sponge with Real Red, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight inks giving the label a distressed look, then I used Chocolate Chip to stamped Merry Christmas from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set. When stamping my image onto green card stock, I used the retired Handsome Hunter ink pad which gave me the affect I was looking for. Then it was a matter of putting the whole thing together with double sided tape and 3D foam.
I love stamping owls and butterflies, you can use them on any occasion. On this card I got to play with my scallop and circle punches. I also used VersaMark and snowflakes background onto the blue card stock.
I had fun making this card and with the Welcome Christmas stamp set by Stampin' Up! it was easy to make more than just one.
1. I stamped the reef with Whisper White ink pad onto Real Red card stock set this aside for the ink to dry properly then add glitter glue onto the reef, allow the glue to dry overnight.
2. Stamp the family decorating the tree with VersaMark onto the base of the card.
3. Cut a wide stripe of Whisper White textured card stock and with Real Red and Garden Green markers, stamp JOY ramdamly onto this stripe.
4. Use the Scallop Trim Border onto Garden Green card stock attached this to the JOY stripe then mount this to the base of your card stock with snail adhesive.
5. Stamp the Season's Greeting with Chocolate Chip ink pad onto Whisper White textured card stock and cut around the frame, I then used Chocoalte Chip marker around cut area of the frame-give you a much neater look. Then mount this to the base of your card with Stampin' Dimensionals adhesive dots.
6. I punched two holes on the lower part of the reef which allows me to put the ribbon through.
Classic Ink Pads
Decoupage for Christmas cards, I love doing this technique and it required a lot of work but fun to do. For those who never tried it, decoupage usually consist of three or more of the same image. You cut and layer all the images with 3D foam. You can also remove some parts of the image as you layer.
