Christmas Stamp a Stack

I had a TERRIFIC Christmas Stamp a Stack and all the ladies had a great time.  Thank you to all that came and hope that you enjoyed all the cards we made.

Here is one of the cards we made that was at the top of the list of favorites:

What's winter without snow?  I don't think I can get through winter or the holiday season without making a snowflake card. The new Snowflake Soiree set is my set for this season.

I really like how this card turned out using the Big Shot Top Note die and a 4-1/4" x 11" Bashful Blue.  Scored and folded in half.  Place the folded piece, with a piece of Whisper White 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" onto the Top Note die with the folded side almost to the inside top of the outline of the cutter. You want the folded edge to be right under the cutting edge. This will allow you to only cut one side of the die into the paper and will cut all your pieces the same size.

Then take your Whisper White and cut along the dotted edge to make it smaller then the Bashfull Blue.  For the ink I choose Bashful Blue & Midnight Muse Classic Ink and Frost White Shimmer Paint.   You will also need a clean dauber, then dab it into the shimmer paint,  ink up your stamp with the classic ink, then take your dauber and dab onto the stamp lightly across the whole stamp.  Then stamp onto your whisper white.  I did the double stamping technique, (stamping twice without re-inking), with some of the snowflakes.

It may take a couple of mintues to dry.  Once dry, use your adhesive and put the Whisper White onto the Bashful Blue and then put it onto a piece of Midnight Muse 4-3/4" x 4-1/4".  You can make your card eith protrait or landscaped.  Either way they will turn out beautiful...

Snowflake Soiree

Snowflake Soiree, clear mount - 127925, $21.95
Top Note Die  - 113463, $21.95
Midnight Muse Cardstock - 126843, $6.95
Bashful Blue Cardstock - 105120, $6.95
Whisper White Cardstock - 100730, $8.50
Frost White Shimmer Paint - 116854, $5.95
Large Pearl Basic Jewels - 125577, $4.95

Here are a couple of other cards that we made at my Christmas Stamp a Stack:

Snow Flurry Bigz Die - 127813 - $21.95

Ornament Keepsake & Northern Flurry Folder

Ornament Keepsake Bundle, Clear Mount - 129950 - $42.95

Ornament Keepsake Bundle

I just could not help trying out this new positional die cutting design to create this Beautiful card.  Here I am using my favorite bundle set, “Ornament Keepsakes Bundle – 129950 Clear Mount $42.95”. The bundle includes the Ornament Keepsake stamp set and the Holiday Framelit dies.  That is a 15% savings from purchasing them separately.   The card is actually a little bit smaller than a standard card, 5-1/2” x 6-3/4”, we still need it to fit in a standard envelope.  We are also using “Greetings of the Season” – 128033 Clear Mount $11.95. The accent is Champagne Glimmer Paper – 127885, $4.95, Northern Flurry Embossing Folder – 120902, $7.95, Crumb Cake 3/8” Taffeta Ribbon – 122966, $6.95, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint - 116806, $5.95, Pearl Basic Jewels – 119247, $4.95, Early Espresso Classic Ink Pad – 126974, $5.95 and Very Vanilla Card Stock – 101650, $8.50.  Oh Yeah the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine – 113439, $99.95

Ornament Keepsake Bundle
The first thing I did is cut my paper to 5-1/2” x 6-3/4” and score it at 3-3/8”.  I then place the front of my card in the embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot using your cutter plate and Tab 2 with your embossing folder.  Place your card flat on the cutter plate using Tab 1 & 2, take your desired Ornament Framelits die and place it where you want your cut out design to be and center the framelit on the score line.  Take the top cutter plate and place it over the framelit up to the center of your card/score line, which should also be the center of the framelit.  Run it through the Big Shot and it should only cut the front half of your card.  Cut off the framelit part, it will not be used.

Cut out your Champagne Shimmer paper using your desired framelit shape you have chosen and put aside.  Next, take the desired Ornament Keepsake stamp and get it inked up in Early Espresso, shake up your shimmer paint and using a dauber, place the dauber in the cap and lightly dab over the inked stamp and then pressing it onto Very Vanilla card stock and let dry.  You will then cut out your ornament using your scissors.  You want the ornament to be smaller than the framelit die so the glimmer paper shows in the background.  Glue your stamped image to your shimmer paper and then place snail on only one half of the back of your glimmer paper, the half that will stick inside the cut-out of your card.  Close the card and stick the glimmer paper and stamped image inside the cut-out and Voila it is beautiful…  Stamp your sentiment the same way you stamped your ornament and add your other favorite framelits and stamped images to the front.  Dress up your images with the pearl basic jewels and you have a beautiful card for the extra special BFF…

Please shop My Store to Your Door 24/7 for any of these great Stampin Up products.

I like to keep my card designs clean and simple and I also use a great sentiment that is perfect to finish off the look!

I spent my time making sets of 4 cards using some of my beautiful but retired DSP paper, retired stamp set "Happy Birthday", current stamp set "Raining Flowers" and punches.  What better way to create and show your customers how to incorporate the retired items with current items and how they still coordinate very well.  Here is one of the sets that I made.

Now you can choose just the sayings you want from these three stamp sets, without having to buy the entire set! Here's the information:
  • These stamps are available on any order type, whether it is online, at a club or workshop. 
  • You can find the stamp item numbers & prices for each on the flyers here, plus they tell you which size clear block they will fit on.
Word Play
Perfectly Penned
  • These won't be sent to you in our typical cases or packaging; they'll be packaged in cello bags. If you'd like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).
  • This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only and runs through January 2nd, 2013.
  • The stamps won't come with a Clear-Mount Block, so you'll need to buy a block separately if you don't already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyers. 
  • There's no limit on how many pieces you can buy! These make great, easy to mail gifts, too!
