Stampin' Up! Beautiful Blizzard

Here is another technique that I haven't done in quite a while.  I used the Sliding Door Framelits to create a template.  I taped it down to the card base with washi tape and sponged Balmy Blue inside the rectangle.  

I die cut the snowflakes in Silver Foil paper and heat embossed the greeting with Silver embossing powder.  I added Rhinestones to the center of each snowflake.  I like the simplicity of this card.

Stampin' Up! Country Home

One of the most popular stamp sets in the new Holiday Catalog is County Home.  There is a lot to like in this entire suite.  The image along the right side of the card coordinates with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  It is amazingly easy to line up using the "Step Technique" with the Stamparatus.  The colors in the designer series paper are really vivid. 

This is one of the cards in my Country Lane Sweet Suite Class.

Stampin' Up! Swap Frosted Floral

Another one of the swap cards I recently received.  Demonstrator Mary McNeely used the Frosted Floral Suite.  One of the unique things about the Designer Series Paper is that it all shimmers.  The shimmer adds such elegance to projects,and seems to make the colors really vibrant.  

While this suite is in the Holiday Catalog, it is appropriate for year round card making.

Stampin' Up! Lovely As a Tree

Here is an oldie but goodie!  This was the very first stamp set I bought 16 years ago.  I don't think Lovely as a Tree will ever retire.  If it does, I will keep it for sentimental reasons.

I need a fall themed card for a swap.  I decided to bring out an old technique that I haven't done in years....literally.  It's called Thumping.  Using Stampin Write Markers, I applied ink to the stamp.  Early Espresso for the tree trunk, Old Olive all over the branches and leaves.  I followed that with tapping Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry to create the effect of a tree beginning to change colors.

I colored some rhinestones with Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Bronze Stampin' Blends to see what color I like best.  I love them all and couldn't decide so used all three colors.

Happy Fall y'all!
