i HEART Primrose Petals

Stampin Up Affection Collection Love Card 2

 

I am just crazy about the 2012-2014 In Colors, especially Primrose Petals!  Super cute!  It is a great pair with the Raspberry Ripple as well.  In this project, I created small rectangles with 1.5″x4″ pieces of DSP and cut down the diagonal for slim triangles.  This created a Starburst pattern and I added sponged ink for dimensional shading.  The centerpiece showcases a few stamps from the Affection Collection Clear Stamp Set found in the 2012 Holiday Catalog.

Its a DSP Tree!

 

Making messes with Designer Series Paper is the most fun! Especially when you can get elbow deep in christmas cheer – or in our case – Stampin’ Up’s holiday selection of Cherry Cobbler and Lucky Limeade patterns from the 2012 Holiday Catalog’s Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack.

There are so many ways to make paper trees, this one is certainly unique.  For some custom embellishment, I draped a bit of Baker’s Twine Whisper White across and secured it with Metallic Brads.  So whimsical!

Get Well with Calypso Coral

Get Well International Bazaar Stampin Up 7

 

Pool Party cheers me up! I hope this pairing of Pool Party and Calypso Coral will send bright and cheery Get Well Wishes in this project.  I love stamping the same color ink as paper, for an elegant texture effect.  It was fun to embellish with the corner detail stamp from the Affection Collection Wood Stamp Set from the 2012 Holiday Catalog.  I think it is becoming my favorite set from the catalog! :)

I took a a picture of my envelope embellishment.  It is so much fun to carry the theme to the envelope too!

 

Don’t forget the basic tools that are available in the 2012 Holiday catalog that can be used year-round, like the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack that includes the stencil for the Label Collection Framelits and many more.  This is a must-have for piercing crafters!

Mass-Producing Custom Christmas Cards

Stampin Up Christmas Card

Christmas cards are so much fun to create!  But, the process can seem daunting when you have a long holiday mailing list of recipients.  To make it easier on yourself, consider a custom design for mass production.  Here, I used a simple format of 2 patterns of Designer Series Paper with the seam covered by a festive ribbon.  Then, I added a  layered centerpiece with a holiday greeting.

Check out the MAJOR photo gallery below for detailed pictures.  No 2 cards are the same – it was really fun to add custom embellishments.

My mom and I got together and cut, glued, and embellished 26 Christmas cards in one afternoon! Whew! Since we find the assembly and embellishment phase the most fun, we did all of the cutting and measuring before hand and created a pile of coordinating pieces.  Then, the fun began when we could get out the Snail Adhesive and start designing! Here are the highlights:

A Dazzling Christmas

Stampin Up Christmas Perfect Punches

A dazzling Christmas project to share!

This Christmas card was a fun experiment with Stampin’ Glitter Dazzling Diamonds.  I used the Delicate Details Folder to emboss the right side of the card front and applied the 2-Way Glue Pen to delicately outline a few snowflakes.  Then I poured on the diamonds! Super cute!
