Stampin’ Up! Christmas Owl Card

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Owl Card

This was my take on a beautiful card my friend shared with me,  I wanted to simplify it quite a bit to make it more easy to reproduce, and we tried it out at my holiday class this morning and the card was so fun and easy to create!!  Just the way I like them…lol…

Stampin' Up! Christmas Owl Card

I used the pennant punch to create the hat. Just trimmed a bit off the top at an angle and the bottom to adjust the size.  I used the owl punch for the owl parts and also to create the fur trim on the hat (trimmed the bottom of the vest) and I used the two circle punches to create the belt.  You must make it off center to create the right width, then trim to fit around the owls tummy.  I did the same thing for the silver glimmer paper with the scallop circle punches, and then “popped” up the owl for some dimension

Stampin’Up! Snow Day Christmas Card

Stampin’Up! Snow Day Christmas Card

At a crafting event I just hosted at my home this was a very popular card. I had many people tell me they had not really considered getting the Snow Day Stamp set until they saw it all put together, many even liked the vintage-Y feel! I had so much fun building snowmen, without the freezing snow!

Stampin'Up! Snow Day Christmas Card

I’ve always loved tent fold cards anyway, so this was especially fun for me to create.  The fold starts with a 4×8 piece of paper scored at 2″ and 4″. You always need a front focal that is only attached to the front fold so that it will stand up when opened and be centered when closed flat.  Inside you need some kind of popped up embellishment or sentiment to act as a “stop” to hold the card open…

Remember to make your envelopes pretty!

Stampin’Up! For the Birds Bling Swap card

Stampin’Up! For the Birds Bling Swap card

A wonderful friend of mine holds a monthly themed group swap…this month was “bling”…Feeling a bit rebellious I departed from the easy holiday sparkle and created this bit of fun:

Stampin'Up! For the Birds Bling Swap card

Simple Stampin’ tip:  I absolutely love to color and create depth with our wonderful markers and blender pens.  This stamp didn’t lend itself to all out coloring, but a simple way to get depth is to use a very small amount of color to outline where you want shaded.  Then color directly onto a plastic baggie or any similar texture, using a blender pen to pick up that color and transfer it to your image.  This prevents the obvious “marker lines” in an image and you can deepen the tone as needed.

Remember to make your envelope pretty!
