WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #85 – REVERSIBLE CUP OF CHRISTMAS!

Wednesday’s WOW! #85 – Did you know there are reversible stamps?  That’s what we will check out in this post.  The Cup Of Christmas stamp set – which is reversible.

This is the Cup of Christmas stamp set. You can find it on p34 of the Holiday Catalogue. I love the font on the sentiments. The really clever part of this stamp set though is that the cups are reversible. You can stamp either side of the stamp.

I wasn’t sure how it would really work.  If you are like me check this video out to see it close up.

 

Here is a graphic taken from the Catalogue.  Pin it so you can have reference to it later.

How about some fun samples using this stamp set.  Have the cup facing either way.  How cool!

I wonder what other reversible stamps Stampin’ Up! might come up with??  We will have to see.

You can grab your Cup of Christmas set and experiment with the cups yourself.

PLAYFUL PENGUINS TAGS!

I have shared some cards with the Playful Penguins lately so I thought I would show you these cute tags.  I received them as a swap at our Team Meeting last week.  This was made by Barbara.  They are just too cute not to share.

I won’t give you too many details on them.  I think they are easy to see how they are done by looking at them.  The tag shape is cut from Whisper White card and the angles cut.  You could use the Paper Trimmer or scissors.

Products used:  Playful Penguins, Jingle Bells, Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, Everyday Label Punch.

Colours: Shaded Spruce, Real Red, Basic Gray.

All these products are available to order in my store now -> HERE.

PLAYFUL PENGUINS TRIO!

I have been sharing some cards with the Playful Penguins stamp set and I had shared these cards very briefly but thought I would share them individually with you today.

It’s a Penguin Parade for this card above.  To highlight one of the penguins I stamped the scarf in Shaded Spruce and raised that up off the card.  I love that the sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas fits nicely between the penguins.

One sole penguin but doesn’t it make it elegant with the flourish die from the Ornate Frames Dies.

This penguin is feeling hopeful under the mistletoe.  This was cut using one of the dies in the Christmas Layers Dies.  These are very versatile dies that you could use for any occasion.

Which card do you like the best?  I can’t choose.  I just think this set is the cutest.

Thanks for visiting me and seeing these cute penguins today,

Jenny

EMBOSSED BACKGROUND WITH PLAYFUL PENGUINS!

I shared some cards with the Playful Penguins a little while ago.  This time I have a cute card for you but what I particularly want to show you is the background.

I have used the Christmas Layers Dies in the Holiday Catalogue to create this effect.

I have embossed the dies on the card rather than cutting them.

I have shared a few times how to emboss with your Dies -> HERE and -> HERE.  It’s very easy and gives you a little more versatility with them.  What a cool effect it creates!

To emboss with them you will need to change they way you layer them in your Diecut machine.  Here’s a table to help you.

Please note: the table below uses the term Big Shot.  Stampin’ Up! no longer uses the term Big Shot.  I will update this table very soon.

To finish the card the sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and cut with one of the Ornate Frames Dies.  I added a strip of the Gold Foil under the sentiment piece that I had flagged the ends. The paper is from the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper. 

For balance and for a little extra I added some of the Shaded Spruce Ribbon and cut a Gold snowflake to finish.

I do love these penguins.  How about you?? What about trying this effect on your next card.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

COPPER CHRISTMAS TREE!

I realised I hadn’t shared this card with you.  We made this at our team meeting a couple of months ago. Thanks to Vanessa Webb for creating it and sharing it with us.

This is using the Perfectly Plaid set in the Holiday Catalogue and the Pine Tree Punch.

The Plaid tree was stamped with Pretty Peacock directly on to the Vanilla card base. The other tree was heat embossed in Copper on to Night of Navy card and punched out with the Pine Tree Punch. This tree is raised up with Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Most Wonderful Time stamp set and heat embossed in Copper. A little star is added from the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements. At the top tie around some Night of Navy Baker’s Twine.

You can’t forget the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. Add a strip along the bottom with a strip of Night of Navy card.

Hope you like it??

Have a wonderful week. I hope that you have got a start on your Christmas Cards already.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

CHRISTMAS GLEAMING HOLLY!

A couple of weeks ago on my Facebook and Instagram I shared a photo of holly that I was colouring.  I finished the card and thought I would show you now.

The holly was watecoloured using the Aquapainter and the ink refill. The card was inspired by a card in the catalogue (p30).  I changed mine a little but I have to say I was really happy how the holly turned out as I am not great at colouring.

Some of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Paper was layered on to the Pretty Peacock card base before assembling the rest of the card.

The white rectangle was cut with a rectangle from the Rectangles Stitched Dies. You don’t need much to the rest of the card with the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming Specialty paper.  I punched an ornament out from the paper and the other one was stamped with one of the ornaments in the Christmas Gleaming stamp set on to Pretty Peacock card and punched out. What about the cute little Copper Star Designer Elements??

Glad that I can show you the finished card finally.  Hope you like it.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

NATURE’S BEAUTY MOONLIGHT FOX!

I have another Nature’s Beauty card for you today.  This card was inspired by a card on Pinterest HERE.  There was no name on it and it was a photo that didn’t lead to a blog or any other site that I can see so I apologize BUT I liked the idea so I built on that.

A few details on the card so you can create your own.

Cut a circle from scrap paper so you can create a mask.  Hold this firmly in place on white card while you sponge or use removable adhesive to keep it secure.

Using Balmy Blue ink sponge on the card.  First start off the card then sponge in from the edge of the card by rubbing in circles not patting the sponge down.  Continue sponging until you are happy with the effect having the colour darker on the edges and lighter as you move in.

Use Night Of Navy ink and with a different sponge, sponge in from the edge of the card a little. Building the colour so it is darker on the edges.  Remove the mask circle.

Stamp the fox in Memento ink and also the bushes. Colour the fox using the Stampin’ Blends (Crumb Cake) and the ground coloured in Granny Apple Green.

Adhere to the Night of Navy Card base.  Stamp the sentiment on to Crumb Cake card and cut with the die from the Ornate Frames Dies.  Raise up the tag with Dimensionals and add a small box from the Night Of Navy Twine.

For some bling I coloured a Rhinestone with the Dark Night Of Navy Stampin’ Blends.

There you have it.  Hope you like it.

I do hope you consider ordering the Nature’s Beauty stamp set.  It has some sweet images for many occasions and also has a few other stamps like the bushes, trees and snow falling that are great fill-ins.

Thanks for visiting me today,

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #83 – USING THE ORNATE FRAMES DIES!

Today’s Wedneday’s WOW! #83Checking out the Ornate Frames Dies.  Have you noticed these dies?? They are on page 53 of the Holiday Catalogue – in the Halloween section.

I have to say for us in Australia we don’t really celebrate Halloween.  It is getting bigger but we don’t make cards and treats and hand them out to everyone.  You don’t even get people knocking on your door a lot which I am glad about that. 🙂  Anyway, I digress. What I was saying is there are some little gems in that section of the catalogue which are really good for creating for any occasion just like the Ornate Frames Dies. 

I really love these dies.  I love the detail in some of them with the flourish edges and some of them have stitched edges. We all love that.

So you can see them easier I diecut them all out.  Some of them layer together.  Some you can use on their own.

What do you think?  Be sure to PIN this photo to Pinterest so you can refer to it again. I think you will use the dies a lot if you get them. So don’t ignore them just because they are at the back of the catalogue.

Have a great day,

Jenny
