Stampin’ Up! Snowy Hometown Greetings

Stampin' Up! Snowy Hometown Greetings

Love, love, love this Stampin’ Up! Snowy Hometown Greetings stamp and coordinating framelit set! I show a simple card with no fussy cutting or glitter snow as well as show how to make the gold foil window with snow “fancier” version.

Although this card looks super fancy, it’s actually very easy to create.  Simple start with an A2 card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold in half at 5.5″.  Cut 3 pieces of paper ( one at 4″ x 5.25″, one at 4″ x 4.25″, and one at 4″ x 3″)  Run each one through the bigshot die cutter with the edgelit at the “top” of the paper.  This allows room to shift and attach where you want and simply cut along the bottom to finish it off.

And here is the video tutorial for Stampin’ Up! Snowy Hometown Greetings:

Stampin’ Up! Moonlight Silhouette Cat Punch card

Stampin’ Up! Moonlight Silhouette Cat Punch card

Stampin' Up! Moonlight Silhouette Cat Punch card

I am in love with this Stampin’ Up! Moonlight Silhouette Cat Punch card! Because this was featured as a tutorial on SplitCoastStampers I have left the format to match theirs, but with a bit more detail!

Technique:



1. First, begin with a 3” circle of White glitter paper cut with a 3” circle framelit or punch.

2. Then use the punch to create a negative image (open space of a shape) Make sure and have the image in the proper orientation when punching)

3. This will leave a positive image (here a cat) and a negative (a cat which will look silhouetted against a moon)

4. Next, sponge lightly around the edges to add depth. Please see the video for tips on sponging without streaking and also how glimmer paper can also be changed color by spritzing.

Final details:


5. Stamp the inside of the card with navy ink using the decorative stamp and sentiment. Attach. Remember to make your envelope pretty with the decorative stamp, too!


6. Stamp the navy cardfront with white craft ink using the decorative stamp and sentiment. The navy cardfront is cut at 5 1/8” x 3 7/8”.

7. Run adhesive around the back of the navy card front and attach the blue ribbon. Place a whitecardstock layer over the blue base. This is white layer is cut at 5.25” x 4”. Now attach the assembled cardfront to the base layers.

8. Place dimensional adhesive to the back of the punched “moon”

9. Position your punched shape on the cardfront.

10. Use a glue dot to make the blue ribbon “cinch” at the point where you are going to add the other ribbons.

11. Finally, attach the mini silver sequin trim using a glue dot. Tie a small bow using the silver ribbon. Attach the silver bow using another glue dot.
