Emboss Resist Technique with Snowflake Wishes

If you love stamping techniques, especially Heat Embossing, I think you're going to enjoy using the Emboss Resist Technique. This is a simple technique that makes a big impact. In the Facebook Live Video Replay below I demonstrate this fun technique and show you how to use Blender Brushes. I love this new set of tools. The Blender Brushes are available to order beginning January 5th with our new January-June Mini Catalog. They are sold as a set of 3 for $12.00 and are definitely worth the investment. You get a much softer look using Blending Brushes rather than Stampin' Sponges or Sponge Daubers.

 Here's a close up of the Blending Brushes that will be available for purchase beginning January 5, 2021, in our January-June Mini Catalog. They are sooooo easy to use and give a beautiful, soft affect. After using them for these cards, I simply rinsed my Blending Brushes in cold water, soaked up excess water with paper towel, then let air dry. As you can see there is some staining which does not affect future use.

Below are more cards I made with the the Emboss Resist Technique. My next two cards feature Fine Art Gallery Stamp Set (also available starting January 5, 2021) with White Heat Embossing.

Quite Curvy Hello Note Card

It's nice to send a pretty card simply to say hello to a friend or loved one who you haven't see in a long time or who you know needs a little pick me up or to know they are thought of. This card is perfect for that person. The card is simple and quick to make. The gold hoop adds a fun element to this wreath card. The sentiment and flowers are from the Quiet Curvy Bundle. And with such bright colors as Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, and Pool Party, whose days wouldn't be made just a bit brighter with this card?

No extra layers of card stock or Designer Series Paper for this simply beautiful card.

Quite Curvy Stamp Set & Curvy Dies by Stampin' Up!I prefer to use Whisper White THICK card stock for my white card bases as it is much sturdier and stands up better than our original Whisper White card stock that is intended for layering. The same holds true for Very Vanilla card bases. 

Quite Curvy Stamp Set & Curvy Dies by Stampin' Up!
What a nice impact this Gold Hoop Embellishment adds. It makes this simple card a bit fancy!

 

TIPS for making this card: 

  • For adhering the Gold Hoop Embellishments, use a few Mini Glue Dots rolled up or even a few tiny pieces of Tear & Tape rolled. You don't need adhesive all the way around the Gold Hoop. Just 3-4 spots with good adhesive will hold your Gold Hoop in place nicely.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Black Momento Ink or in color of your choice.
  • I stamped 2 floral sprigs in Black Momento Ink and colored with Stampin' Blends in Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, and Pool Party.
  • Die cut both floral sprigs. Then cut one of them into 2 pieces (1 very small piece and 1 longer piece) and tuck and adhere these underneath the Gold Hoop. The other floral sprig I placed over the top of the hoop using Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base.
  • Use a Mini Glue Dot behind the knot of the bow to adhere it to the bottom of the floral wreath.

You can't buy this DSP yet, but consider this a sneak peek of a fabulous product suite that will be available January 5th. Trust me, though, it will be worth the wait!

Holiday Wine Bottle Tags

I've been making a few Wine Bottle Tags for holiday gift giving. Below are ones for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I used the Gilded Autumn Suite and a sheet from World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper for my Thanksgiving Wine Bottle Tag. The Christmas one was made with products in my October Paper Pumpkin Kit, Joy to the World. I always love to make a few alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin Kits. 

IMG_0150 (1)Each Wine Bottle Tag starts with  4" x 12" piece of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper or card stock. I score 3 1/2" from the top and fold gently. I punch a 1 1/2" circle to hang the tag. To create the "ring" that goes around the hole, punch a 1 1/2" circle in center of 2 1/4" square of coordinating paper. Then punch with 2" Circle Punch centering the hole in the 2" circle opening to and punch to get the ring.

Shaker Cards Made Easy

Shaker Cards are so much fun to give. Everyone - people of all ages - love receiving a Shaker Card in the mail and giving it a shake. But, let's admit, Shaker Cards can be a bit tricky to make. Not anymore! Not with this super cool, easy-to-make version of the Shaker Card as we know it. 

I demonstrated how to make Shaker Cards made with our Stampin' Up! clear envelopes. They're easy. They're fast. And, of course, they're lots of fun to make. And for these three reasons, you'll want to make up a bunch of these fun Shaker Cards.

Enjoy the following video replay of a recent Facebook Live Demonstration!

Merry Christmas Tin

Have you seen the darling tins in our 2020 Stampin' Up Holiday Mini Catalog? They come in two shapes - rectangle and round - and both are fabulous! They're fun. They're versatile. They can be filled with candies, a decorated cookie, a gift card, cash, coins, personal notes, meaningful quotes, jewelry, and more. Or how about gifting your crafting friends a bolt of Stampin' Up! ribbon, a bunch of gift tags, or an assortment of embellishments. 

Today's post shows one way to decorate a Round Tin quickly and easily with the Wreath Builder Dies and foil paper in red, green, and gold. Whether I use this as a stocking stuffer, gift card holder, or table favor, I have no doubt the recipient will LOVE it. The question is, though, will that person want to share it and pass it on or keep it for oneself to use as a holiday decoration for years to come.

Arrange A Wreath Bundle by Stampin' Up!

Nothings says Christmas more than red, green, and gold and a holiday wreath. This Round Tin was fun and VERY easy to decorate. I can think of so many ways to use it which makes my heart happy.

I stamped "Merry Christmas" in Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock, punched it out with a 2" Circle Punch, then layered it onto a 2 1/4" circle punched from Green Foil Paper.Arrange A Wreath Bundle by Stampin' Up!
