Stamping with Friends are Sharing Online Exclusives

Welcome to the Stamping with Friends Blog Hop, where we are showcaseing  projects made with the Online Exclusives from Stampin’ Up! For my project, I chose the So Very Merry stamp set, which is perfect for Christmas cards. I made two simple cards using the stained-glass images from this set.

So Very Merry

 

The first card has a shiny Santa that looks like glass. I colored him with Blends and then added a piece of Window Sheet using an adhesive sheet. This card also uses the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper, which is also an online exclusive. You can see how I did this in my video HERE:

 

The second card is a fun fold card. I have used this fold before, but with different measurements.

So Very Merry

I love the Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty Paper on the card. It is so pretty!

Measurements:

  • Card base Lost Lagoon cardstock, cut at 8-1/4″ x 5-1/2,” and scored at 1,” 2,” 3,” 4.”
  • Pillar Panels: Pool Party cardstock: 3/4″ x 5-1/4″ (3) and Dry Brushed Metallic DSP: 5/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Background Panel: cardstock: Pool Party 3″ x 5-1/4″ and Dry Brushed Metallic DSP: 2-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Focal Point Card Base: cardstock: 4″ x 4-1/2″ and scored at 1/2,” and 1-1/2″
  • Pool Party cardstock: 3-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ (embossed with Merry Melody folder)

Stamping with Friends Share Partial Die Cut Technique

Hues of Happiness

Hello and welcome to the Stamping with Friends Blog Hop. Our theme for today is Partial Die Cut cards.

I was a bit nervous about this challenge at first. But then I discovered how fun and easy partial die cutting can be. This weekend you will find me making more cards with this technique! Isn’t it amazing how a challenge can spark new inspiration?

Irresistible Blooms

Irresistible Blooms

For this card, I used the Irresistible Blooms bundle and the Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper. I chose one simple blossom for my first attempt at partial die cutting. After stamping and die cutting the flower I used Stamin’ Blends for coloring and added some Wink of Stella for shine. Sprinkling a few Tinsel Gems added sparkle and interest to the card front. Tinsel Gems are my new favorite embellishment.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I’m excited to see what the other stampers have created. Don’t forget to hop along and check out their beautiful projects.

Stamping With Friends Blog Hop – Pop Up Cards

Hues of Happiness

Thank you for joining us for our Stamping with Friends Blog Hop.  I hope you find ideas and creative inspiration as you visit all the blogs. 

This month we are featuring Pop Up cards! I am excited to learn some new techniques from all my stamping friends.

I tried a new pop-up card and it is so easy! My kind of card.

Playing in the Rain

This is called a Pop-up Flip card. When you open the card the focal image flips to the inside, just like magic.

Playing in the rain

I used the adorable Playing in the Rain bundle for my images and Designer Series Paper. I love that the dies cut out the DSP images so you can create a card super fast. The sentiment is from the Easter Bunny stamp set.

Stamping with Friends Share Favorite Sale-a-bration Items

Hues of Happiness

Today I am “Stamping with Friends”. Our task is to share our favorite Sale-a-bration product.  This is almost impossible because I love ALL the Sale-a-bration items!

The Owls are too cute, the Dainty Flowers DSP is stunning, and all the other products are just fantastic. 

I decided to share the Day at the Farm Designer Series Paper because it is such a fun print. Who can resist cute farm animals?

The best thing about this paper is you can make great cards even if you don’t have the coordinating On the Farm stamps and dies.

Day at the Farm

If you are like me, you like to have Hello/Thinking of You cards on hand, so I made a few of these to put in my stash. The Goose and Chicks are adorable, plus they make me smile!

Day at the Farm

I made some more fancy fold cards with this DSP and you can see them on my YouTube Channel. Don’t forget to click subscribe while you are visiting.

Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure you hop on to be inspired by my stamping friends around the world.

Stamping With Friends Emboss Resist Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamping with Friends Blog Hop. Our goal this month is to inspire you with Emboss Resist projects. I know these projects will spark your creativity.

Stamping with Friends

I went with soft colors and a simple layout. This project is great for when you have limited time. (That is me today)

Hues of Happiness

Emboss resist starts with embossing powder and a heat gun. I used White Embossing Powder, but you can use any color you choose. Once you have stamped your design you add the Embossing Powder & heat it up. Now you are ready to add the ink. You can use Daubers or Blending Brushes. You could also use watercolor on top of the design. No matter which technique you use each card will be different and unique.

Hues of Happiness

I also used the Pretty Flowers embossing folder. It makes the cardstock look like velvet. It is so pretty.

Did you notice the pretty shimmer paper butterfly? The Fine Shimmer Paper is a new product from the Mini Catalog. I love it so much!
