A Quilted Background for Smitten Mittens Christmas Card

By | October 3, 2017

Stampin Up! Smitten Mittens On Quilt

Here’s What I Made

Smitten Mittens on their own would make an adorbs Christmas card with a heartfelt holiday greeting. By adding a beautiful quilted background crafted with the new Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the red striped patterned paper in the Quilted Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, the charm swells. To achieve the puffy, padded effect a quilt takes on after washing, I gently sanded the embossed patterned paper to reveal and enhance the stitching. This technique is featured on page 4 of the Holiday Catalog. Take a look at the Christmas Peace card on the spool caddy. So simply. So festive.

Center Step Fancy Fold Hello Fall Card with Coffee Cafe

Here’s What I Made

The Center Step Fancy Fold template is a unique presentation for a greeting card. The tall center panel creates a splendid stage for the star of a card—in this case the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte drink. The Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder gives the card base a lovely rustic feel that’s perfect for the season.

Good news! The Center Step Fancy Fold template is easy. Watch the video tutorial for a demonstration on how to score and cut the card base, plus a quick tip on how to add rich color to the deep pinewood plank impressions. Grab the project sheet for measurement details and complete project supplies.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Birthday Card with 3D Whipped Cream

Nothing says Hello Fall like a Pumpkin Spice latte with whipped cream. Here’s a paperlicious version to send birthday greetings featuring Stampin’ Up!’s new Embossing Paste to recreate fluffy whipped cream. It’s the perfect topping for the Pumpkin Spice Latte made using the Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups Framelits bundle featured in the main catalog. Save money; buy the bundle. Plus, there’s a coordinating holiday set called Merry Cafe in the Holiday catalog. You will want it all!

Here’s What I Made

My sweet birthday greetings for a coffee-fiend friend features a dollop of sweet whipped cream created with Embossing Paste and Dazzling Diamonds. I’ve selected the Early Espresso zigzag pattern from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper as the backdrop to the Pumpkin Spice latte mug.

I’ve created both a handy resource project PDF sheet and a quick how to video tutorial to show you how simple it is to use Embossing Paste to create 3-D whipped cream on a handmade card. I also share how to craft the mug.

Side Step Fancy Fold Birthday Card Tutorial Featuring Grown with Love

By | September 2, 2017

Side Step Fancy Fold Birthday Card Featuring Grown With Love

This side step fancy fold card is loaded with fun. After sharing a side step card using the Birthday Memories Suite (see it here) in one of my card classes, I received requests for the step-by-step instructions and details. Today I’m not only sharing the PDF project sheet, I also have my first-ever video tutorial for you.

Today’s side step card features the Grown with Love Bundle that includes the stamp set and the Garden Grown Framelits Dies. This bundle was one of the first new products that landed on my wish list when the new Stampin’ Up! catalog was launched. It’s adorable. I also used Stylized Birthday, which is a must-have stamp for your stamp closet. You’ll grab it often when creating birthday cards.

Creating the side step card is simple. Once you give it a try, you’ll want to create lots of scenes.
