Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for December; we are thankful you stopped by. This month we are showcasing projects that feature Stampin’ Up! products that should be on everyone’s wish list. We hope you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
My project features the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set and a classic winter color combination of white with blues.
The white is hard to photograph so that the picture does the project justice. Let’s try another background:
Hard to see, but this card features 3 layers, yet it is made from just one sheet of cardstock! I like to feature quick & easy cards this time of year. I showed the gals at my first ever Sip & Stamp class the other night how easy it is to make this card.
First, I cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of Whisper White cardstock in half to create the card base. Then I cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece which we ran thru the Big Shot with the Gently Falling embossing folder. Lastly I cut another piece 3″ x 4-1/4″. On this layer we stamped the background snow flakes with Lost Lagoon ink several times in the upper right corner. On top of this we stamped the bold snowflake in Island Indigo ink. We mixed and matched words to create whatever sentiments we wanted on the lower portion, again in Island Indigo ink.
The finishing touches included tying a 3/8″ Lost Lagoon ribbon around the top layer. The top layer was adhered to the embossed layer using stampin’ dimensionals, then glue that to the card base. (The ribbon is retired but is available on our Clearance Rack – SCORE!) We had our choice of Iced Rhinestones or Metal Rimmed Pearls to embellish the snowflake.
Did you notice that I used one of each on the two cards above? Pay close attention and you’ll see that I even have two different sentiments, too!
