Snowflake Christmas for Friends of SUBA Blog Hop

Hello Stampers! The Friends of SUBA are Christmas hopping today. You are going to love all the beautiful Christmas ideas and cards on this hop. Christmas can be a stressful time, but if you start early you will be able to sit back and enjoy the time with family and friends.

It is going to be a Snowflake Christmas at my house this year.

I chose to highlight the Snowflake Showcase stamp set, Snow is Glistening. Reminder – this Limited Edition set is only available during the month of November or while supplies last.

A couple of weeks ago I found these glittery battery-operated votive candles. Once I saw the small snowflake I knew it would be a fun addition to the candles. I made a coaster out of Real Red card stock and a large Sparkle Glimmer Paper snowflake. The votives look so cute grouped on my table. I plan  to use them for party favors at my stamp club Christmas party.

 

My cards for today are all the same design but in many different colors: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo. Gorgeous Grape, and Blueberry Bushel.

Which color is your favorite?

Tips for creating this card:

  • Cut a card base 11’ x 4 ¼”, score at 5 ½”.
  • Cut a layer of Silver Foil at 5 ¼” x 4”
  • Cut colored card stock layer at 5” x 3 ¾”
  • Use your Stamparatus to stamp the falling snow at the top of the card. Stamp with VersaMark. Use the small snowflake stamp to add some snow down the sides of the  card front. Heat emboss with White Embossing powder.    
  • Spray Thick White Cardstock with Frost White Shimmer Paint. Once it is dry you will die cut a large snowflake. Die cut a medium Sparkle Glimmer Paper snowflake.
  • Assemble your card layers, add snowflakes on the card along with a twist of Silver Thread.
  • Stamp Joy in the color of you card and punch with 1” circle punch. Attach to center of the snowflake.

Here is a close up: I used Frost White Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol and sprayed the colored layer and the large snowflake. A twist of Silver Thread added even more shimmer.

Christmas deserves to be sparkly and bright!

Hop on to Leighsa and the rest of the Friends for even more Christmas joy!

With Gratitude for Thanksgiving

Hello Stampers! Can you believe it is almost November? Here in the states we start the Fall/Winter holidays with Halloween, followed by Thanksgiving and on to Christmas. Time to get your card making in gear to be ready for all the fun holidays!

Today I have a “Gratitude” card to share with you. This will be just right for Thanksgiving or as a “thank you for being my friend” message. I like to have cards on hand for when I need to send someone a special message.

 

 

To create this card, you will need the Tin Tile embossing folder and Country Home stamp set. The card base is Crumb Cake layered with Soft Sage and Balmy Blue. I embossed the Balmy Blue card stock and then rubbed the card stock with Whisper White Craft Ink. It gave it the vintage look I wanted. The Milk Can is stamped on Copper Foil using Stazon Ink. I highlighted parts of the can with a Bronze Blend marker. You will fussy cut the milk can, but it is worth the effort!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Stamping!

Mocha Latte for Global Design Project #159

Fall is my favorite season of the year. Summer in the south is HOT and fall brings a very welcome change in temperature. Today I am sharing a Fall card related to the Pumpkin Spice Latte trend.  My fall beverage is a Mocha Latte.  I wrapped my cozy mocha cups in a flannel plaid, added a crinkled belly band, and some glittery wheat stalks. Of course, I sprinkled cocoa on the whipped cream. So fun…this card just makes me smile.

Two Mocha Lattes to go, please.

Fall in Love is the Theme Challenge for Global Design Project #159. I thought this would do nicely for the challenge.

Mocha Latte Wheat Stalks

GDP #159 Coffee Cafe Ginny Harrell Stampin' Up!

 

Tips for creating the Mocha Latte Card:

  • The wheat stalks are the feather ends of the Chase Your Dream Framelits
  • The “warmth” sentiment is from a Christmas set – Hearts Come Home.
  • When using the new Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder add a layer of wax paper. It will keep your paper from tearing.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Happy Stamping!

Winter Woods for What’s New at SU!

Did you know there is a new Holiday Catalog coming out September 5th? I bet you have already seen some peeks of the amazing products. So many wonderful new stamps, paper, and embellishments.

Today the What’s New at SU Team is hoping along and sharing some of the new products with you. Make sure you click on the links at the bottom of the page to follow along on with the hop. It will make it hard to wait until September 5th to place your order!

I chose to showcase a Christmas set titled: Winter Woods. These trees are lovely and can be used in many ways. Nobody does trees like Stampin’ Up does.

My first card uses the Winter Woods large pine/fir tree die as well as the die cuts for the leafless trees.

I added a church from the Hometown Greeting Edgelits. A tip: Slide a little bit of card stock behind the doors and windows to make it look like the lights are turned on.

The second card highlights the stand of trees. I heat embossed them in white on Night of Navy card stock. The contrast of navy, white and silver is always one of my favorite combinations.

Lastly, I wanted to share a card that is not Christmas. I used the die cuts to create a sympathy card.

I used the new Embossing Mats turn the dies into embossing dies.  

Have you tried them yet? They really are cool and help you stretch your tools and supplies.

Thanks  for taking the time to stop by today. Hop on to Tricia and see the Spooky Fun she has to share.

Adventure Awaits for Freshly Made Sketches #347

Joining in on a Freshly Made Sketches Challenge with a card using Lilypad Lake. I am posting today just by the skin of my teeth. I have gotten behind on post challenges for some reason. Life does seem to be busy this summer.

This sketch uses two elements and of course you can use the exact shapes or change them up. I chose to stick to the shapes presented.

I need a retirement card for someone who is looking forward to lots of traveling in the future. I tend to go with bright and cherry cards and I thought the cute sail boats from LilyPad Lake would be nice and colorful.
