Stampin' Up! handmade thank you card featuring Occasions Catalog & Sale-A-Bration sneak peeks - Dear Doily bundle, Doily Builder thinlits, Well Written thinlits, Lovely Lipstick foil sheets - emboss resist with Ink, Spray, & Smash - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Today’s card is a technique-y card. I was playing with the new Dear Doily bundle (available to demonstrators now and to customers on January 3rd), and I got a little carried away. #sorrynotsorry I am also sneak-peeking several other Occasions Catalog / Sale-A-Bration things.

My card base is Mint Macaron, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. The Lovely Lipstick cardstock on top of that is 4″ x 5-3/8″.

For my background, I used a piece of Glossy White Cardstock — you can do so many fun techniques with glossy cardstock. I first rubbed the Embossing Buddy all over the glossy cardstock, stamped several doilies in Versamark, then heat embossed the doilies with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool. Then I used the Ink, Spray, & Smash technique (I have a video using this technique here) with Real Red, Granny Apple Green, and Mint Macaron reinkers, which made this into an emboss resist piece. One of the coolest things about glossy cardstock is that you never know what the colors are going to look like when used on this cardstock. The Real Red came out looking very much like Lovely Lipstick. I cut the background out with one of the new Stitched Rectangles framelits (coming January 3rd).

I cut a doily out of Lovely Lipstick cardstock, cut the “thanks” out of Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets (a Sale-A-Bration freebie, coming January 3rd!) using a die from the new Well Written framelits, and added a piece of the new Whisper White Flax Ribbon (coming January 3rd) between them.

Stampin' Up! handmade holiday Christmas card using Signs of Santa stamp set with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, Candy Cane Season stamps, and Snowfall Thinlits - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good morning! Today is a new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge, and this time our theme is “Holidays”. We’d love to see what you make, so please head over to the challenge blog and play along!

Stampin' Up! handmade holiday Christmas card using Signs of Santa stamp set with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, Candy Cane Season stamps, and Snowfall Thinlits - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I’ve had the Signs of Santa stamp set for quite a while but only recently got to play with it! The coordinating dies are sold out, so I wanted to show you what you can make with just the stamp set. I’m also using the Candy Cane Season stamp set. My card base is Bermuda Bay. I made the main feature by stamping several things on Whisper White card stock. I stamped the North Pole, Santa, and the elf in Memento Tuxedo Black ink first, then I stamped the snowflakes from Candy Cane Season in Bermuda Bay. I stamped the sentiment and “North Pole” in Real Red. I colored the little scene with Stampin’ Blends (Bermuda Bay Combo, Crumb Cake Combo, Real Red Combo, Dark Mango Melody, Call me Clover Combo, Petal Pink Combo, Light Smoky Slate, and Light Pool Party).

After I colored everything, I added glitter to the North Pole, Santa’s beard, mustache, and hat, and the elf’s pompom. I first added Multipurpose Liquid glue, then dumped on Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I love glitter — it’s a treasure. I framed the feature piece out with a skinny Call Me Clover mat, and framed that out with a skinny Whisper White mat. After I glued these down, I cut the snow swirl from Sparkle Glimmer paper using one of the Snowfall thinlits dies. Sadly, these are now gone, but I couldn’t resist using them one last time.

Inside the card, I stamped more snowflakes and finished off the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
