A while back, when the Holiday catalog was still brand new and exciting, I shared with you a bunch of cards using the Cup of Christmas stamp set and retired Christmas paper. This week, I thought I'd make some of the same cards, but this time, I'd use the Let it Snow and Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper from the 2019 Holiday Catalog. So, here are the same cards, but with a completely different look. It's amazing what a change in color and background paper can do!
And a few more with just the Let It Snow and Wrapped in Plaid papers...
I just couldn't resist playing with these poppies some more! I decided to make a set of four blank cards. These are perfect for sending a note to a friend just because you're thinking of them. I was inspired by the Global Design Project #216 to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) the Designer.
The Painted Poppy stamp set will be available in the new Mini Catalog coming in January! If you'd like to receive one, please leave me a message or send me an email (email@example.com) and I will get one out to you!
Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to attend Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event in Lansing, MI with about 1300 other demonstrators from primarily the Midwest. It was so much fun to meet other demonstrators, stamp, hear inspirational speakers, see new product, and get my hands on the catalog coming in January. It was a great Saturday!
One of the best parts though was swapping cards with other demonstrators. I thought you might like to see some of the cards I received from others. I'll share more next week!
Last week, I shared a video with you where I explained how to use the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint to create fluffy cotton on the image in the Country Home stamp set. I love that the cotton balls are fluffy! But, when I got done and was putting the stamp set away, I looked at the other spray of flowers and thought how sad the cattails looked. They wanted a little fluff too!
So, I stamped the image and pulled the puff paint back out. I applied the puff paint with a paintbrush to the cattails, just like I'd done previously to the cotton. I heated the puff paint so that it puffed up. I filled in the holes and heated it again. Once it was all nice an puffy, I broke out my Soft Suede Stampin' Blend and I colored the puff paint! It did break down the puff slightly, but it still left a wonderful texture that is perfect for cattails!
In this video, I explain the different types of stamps, inks, and paper. I show you how to assemble unmounted stamps and how to ink up your stamps and put them to paper. At the end, I share a basic card that is perfect for beginners and seasoned stampers alike.
I hope you'll take a few minutes to check it out! If you have any questions on how to get started, I'd love to help answer them. Just drop me a comment or send me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
