Do you like sneak peaks?

I love sneak peaks, especially as Christmas approaches. I know it’s only November but I am on countdown. It’s my thing and I get more excited as we get closer and closer. Right now, there are only 55 days until Christmas Day. It is coming fast so I wanted to share this gorgeous bundle with you.

This is an early release from Stampin’ Up! As of Nov 3, you will be able to order the Curvy Celebrations stamp set. This is a wonderful set that will inspire your creativity.

Here are just a few card examples to inspire you.

Sponging Technique

I wanted to share a couple of cards I made using the sponging technique. This technique is a great way to add an interesting background to your cards.

First of all, to block of the part I wanted to colour, I cut out a U-shaped template from a 6×6 piece of light cardboard as shown below.

By doing this I ensured the cut out was 1 1/2” in width, which is what I wanted, but you could make it wider if desired. With a template, I don’t have to use a bunch of paper and tape to mark out my block, plus I can re-use the template for a second or third card. I used small pieces of washi tape to secure my card base to scrap paper then placed the template over the card and secured it with more washi tape as shown. I like using washi tape because it easily removes and doesn’t pull on the paper like some painter tape does. Once all is secured, I am ready to go.

I sponged the various colours I wanted to use across the blocked area. There really is no right or wrong way to do this, however I would recommend overlapping the colours so there are no hard lines. While doing this, you have to wonder, right? It’s not very impressive and looks rather messy as you can see, but once you remove the template you will see how cool it looks. I then stamped the images and sentiments from the “Prized Peony” stamp set in Tuxedo Momento ink over the coloured background. I absolute love how it looks and there are so many colour possibilities. What do you think? If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.

Prized Peony

To complete the card, I added a mat in a coordinating colour to the card front then applied it to a black card base which just makes the card front pop even more. I then stamped a sentiment to another piece of card stock and applied it to the inside of the card.

This card is a sneak peak, using the same method. This new stamp set will become available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog in the new year. As a demonstrator, I enjoy having a few perks, such as discounts on purchases or getting this stamp set in advance. If you would like to become a demonstrator and enjoy those perks as well, I would love it if you joined my team as a demonstrator. Whether you are in the same city as me or spread across Canada, my team, “Canadian Stampers” are a group of wonderful people who I support 100% of the time.

Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

I often talk about the Paper Pumpkin kits but I don’t often share what I make with all the supplies once I receive the kit. I am sharing that with you today.

I usually make up a single card of each design (pictured above) as per the instructions. The October kit entitled “Joy to the World” gives you enough supplies to create 8 cards (4 each of the 2 designs) along with the stamp set and ink to complete the project.

This picture below shows just 5 alternative cards that I have made so far but I have so many other ideas that I will be working on this week. I also deconstructed some of the envelopes (love the printed red paper) to add even more supplies to my stash.

As you can see, each kit can be stretched to make many more cards so you always get more bang for your buck with each kit. There is even a Paper Pumpkin Fan Club on Face Book where people showcase all the alternative cards and projects they make from each kit. It is a great source of inspiration and you would be amazed at what people create.

November’s cute, gingerbread-themed kit contains enough supplies to create one-of-a-kind Christmas crafts! Whether you use the kit to create cute gift card holders or traditional cards, the choice is up to you. You can also create tasty-looking gift tags. With curly cutouts, sugary stickers, and delicious die-cut designs in a special-edition box, a jolly holiday will be on its way with this kit! If you want this kit, you will need to Subscribe by Nov 10th.

I also wanted to remind you that the Designer Series Paper sale is coming to an end as of Oct 31st. You can save 15% of selected paper packages so it’s a great time to stock up.

Now for a sneak peak. On of the perks of being a demonstrator (aside from the discount) is that I can access select products before they become available to the general public. I would like to show you this card I made from one of the new products which will be available in January as part Sale-A-Bration. I absolutely love Dragon flies and this set doesn’t disappoint. There is even coordinating Designer Series Paper to make your projects even more appealing.

Lest we Forget

Painted Poppies Thank you Card

I decided to take a break from making Christmas gift card holders for an upcoming virtual market and create something different. With Remembrance Day coming up and due to covid, the ceremonies normally done to honour our veterans will be very different. I created this card using the Poppy Parade and the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.

The two stamp sets below work so well together and I find I keep using them over and over again. The also come with coordinating dies so you can stamp the image then cut it out which makes card making so easy. Should you wish to purchase either of these stamp sets, you can visit my online store by clicking here.

Directions

Cut rectangle out of centre – 2 ½ x 3 1/2”. You can use a paper trimmer or if you have a rectangle die, it makes it easy to cut out.

Stamp large flowers on scrap paper and cut out to use as a mask and set aside (I used one large and stamped several smaller images)

Position and centre the rectangle within the cut-out piece of whisper white (secure with a mini glue dot on the back so it doesn’t move)

Stamp large Poppies on the cut-out rectangle ensuring a couple of the flowers go off the paper onto the larger white piece

Using the mask place the flowers over the stamped images of the rectangle (use a mini glue dot to secure them in place)

Leaving the mask in place, stamp the smaller flowers across the paper leaving room on the bottom for the sentiment.  

The mask will prevent you from stamping on the larger flowers.

Stamp the background stamp in Mossy Meadow across the paper to give the greenery some colour.

Stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the whisper white

Remove the mask and colour the flowers using the blender pens.

Adhere both pieces of Whisper White to the front of the card base.

Tie a piece of ribbon in a knot, trim (on an angle) and use a mini glue dot to secure to the front of the card.

Optional

Stamp an image to the other Whisper white piece 

Stamp Sentiment  if desired or leave blank

Adhere to the inside of the card.

Products used to make this card

Mossy Meadow Card Base – 5 ½ x 8 ½” (scored at 4 ¼”)

Whisper white – 5 ¼” x 4” (cut 2)

Scrap paper (for the masking technique)

Stamp Set – Poppy Parade (large and small flowers)

Stamp Set – Peaceful Moments (Sentiment)

Ink – Mossy Meadow

Blender Pens – Cherry Cobbler (light & dark)

Blender Pens – Rococo Rose (light & dark)

Blender Pens – Mossy Meadow (light & dark)

Ribbon – Ornate Garden

Speaking of newer Designer Series paper (DSP) , now is a great time to stock up with some beautiful papers. A select group of designs shown below are 15% off until the end of October and there are no limits on what you purchase. Tick! Tock! Time is running out. To shop now, click here to visit my online store.

I recently made up these gift card holders with some retired Christmas paper from last year. Small items like treat boxes or gift card holders are a great way to use up the old papers and make way for the newer Designer Series paper. I also used the new Poinsettia Petals bundle to stamp and cut out the flowers. I am loving this bundle as there are so many possibilities and different sized Poinsettia’s that you can stamp or cut out. Odds and ends of other stuff I had on hand were used to complete them.

This is a picture of the Poinsettia Petals Bundle I used on the gift card holders. As you can see, there are so many different sized flowers and leaves that it will suit just about any project you have in mind. These lovely flowers also suit very well in whites, silvers, blues. Who doesn’t like design options?
