White Pine Bough

Well, by now I guess you’ve figured out that I’m pretty smitten with the new Holiday Catalog. There are so many fun, pretty, amazing new products, and I want to show you them all! Today I’m featuring a new embossing folder called Pine Bough. It’s included in the Presents & Pinecones suite of products, but I think it does just fine on its own.

Here’s how I did it:

The card base is a Silver Foil Sheet cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″. Although if I were to make this card again, I would cut it to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and score it at 4-1/4″ for a tent card. I adhered a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of Soft Sky card stock to the front with Fast Fuse. I find Fast fuse works better than liquid glue on the slick foil sheets.

I ran a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot with the new Pine Bough embossing folder.

I cut an ornament and ornament topper from a Silver Foil Sheet with the Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies. I adhered the top to the ornament with Fast Fuse, then glued the ornament onto the embossed piece. Glue works fine on the back of the foil sheets.

I used my Paper-Piercing Tool to poke a tiny hole in the paper, and threaded a piece of Silver Metallic Thread around the ornament top and through the hole, where I adhered it on the back with Fast Fuse. I glued the Whisper White piece onto the Soft Sky piece.

The last touch was the bow. There is no Soft Sky Baker’s Twine, so I made some. I cut a length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine, and put it in a small glass bowl with a few drops of Soft Sky Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill. I moved it around with my Paper-Piercing tool to make sure it all got dyed, then I laid it out on a paper towel to dry. I tied the dried twine in a small bow and adhered it to the ornament with a Mini Glue Dot.

Here’s what I used:

Santa’s Sleigh to BOGO Sale and Open House

 

Scroll to the bottom of this post for details on

BOGO Sale and Open House this Sunday, noon-4pm!

 

I am honored to be featured today on Brian King’s blog, stampwithbrian.com. He is an enormously talented card maker and inspires many people every day, including myself.  He asked me to make something with the new Santa’s Sleigh bundle (Santa’s Sleigh stamp set and Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits Dies) which will be available to purchase when the 2016 Holiday catalog goes live on September 1. I was excited he asked me to use this one because I hadn’t used it yet. There are 15 stamps and 12 dies – plenty of images and shapes to make lots of different projects.

 

Santa's Sleigh bundle

 

Here is what I came up with:

I wanted to use the sleigh and reindeer framelits, but couldn’t fine a good way to fit them onto a regular 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card. So I decided to create the scene I wanted, then build the card around it. It ended up being 4″ x 8″, so I made an envelope for it from a piece of Tip Top Taupe  paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Envelope Paper.

 

santa's sleigh card b

 

Here’s how I did it:

I cut two sleighs, one from Real Red card stock and one from a Gold Foil Sheet. I cut the runner off the bottom of the red one and glued it onto the gold one, so I had a red sleigh with a gold runner. Then I cut the decorative top piece from the Gold Foil Sheet and glued it over the red. So the sleigh is three layers and the runner is only one.

Most of the stamping on this card is tone on tone. I stamped the tree in Garden Green ink onto Garden Green card stock and cut it out with the coordinating die. I glued it to the back of the sleigh so it looks like it’s propped inside it.

I stamped two deer. I inked up the stamp once with Crumb Cake ink on the body and Whisper White Craft ink on the antlers, and stamped it onto Crumb Cake card stock. I inked it up again with Soft Suede ink on the body and Whisper White Craft ink on the antlers, and stamped it onto Soft Suede card stock. I set the craft ink with my heat tool, then I cut out the two deer with the coordinating die.

I stamped the bow in Real Red ink onto Real Red card stock, and the wreath in Garden Green ink onto Garden Green card stock, and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I glued the bow onto the neck of one deer. I cut the wreath so I could slip it around the other deer’s neck and glued it in place.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and heat embossed it in gold. I cut it out with a banner die from the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits. The die is notched on only one end, so I cut the sentiment with the notched end of the die close to one end of the sentiment, then cut it again with the notched end near the other end of the sentiment. I matted this with a 3/4″ wide strip of Gold Foil Sheet and used Paper Snips to notch the ends to match. (I hurriedly typed up the info for Brian, and I think I may have mistakenly told him I used a different die set for this banner; maybe the Cupcake Cutout Framelits?)

So now I had all these pieces that needed a background. I envisioned a road through the snowy woods.

I began with a piece of watercolor paper cut large enough to contain the scene (3-1/2″ x 7-1/2″.) I used a Stampin’ Spritzer to get the front wet. I also spritzed the back a couple times to help keep it from curling up.

I used an Aqua Painter to swash Soft Sky ink onto most of the paper, and Crumb Cake ink onto the bottom portion. The road wasn’t as dark as I wanted, so I went over it with a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker and blended it with the Aqua Painter. I could’ve let it sit overnight to dry, but I was too impatient, so I used my heat tool to dry it in just a few minutes.

I used a stamp from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set for the trees. I inked it in Mint Macaron ink and stamped off before stamping onto the watercolor paper. I wanted there to be a hint of trees in the background, but with so much snow you can barely see them.

I matted this piece with Gold Foil Sheet (3-3/4″ x 7-3/4″) and glued that to a Garden Green card base (8″ x 8″, scored at 4″.)

I adhered the sleigh to the card front. I glued the runner and used Stampin’ Dimensionals under the topmost part of the sleigh and the tree. I did this because I couldn’t get the foam adhesive cut skinny enough to go under the pieces, but I wanted the sleigh to stand out from the card a bit.

I adhered a piece of gold twine from the new Baker’s Twine Trio Pack to the back of the Soft Suede deer’s neck. Then I glued the deer to the card front. I adhered the Crumb Cake deer to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the reins, I ran the gold twine from the darker deer back to the sleigh and back to the lighter deer. I threaded it through the wreath and around the neck and adhered it on the back with a Glue Dot.  I adhered the reins to the underside of the front of the sleigh with a Glue Dot. I used my Paper Piercing Tool to push the glue dots into place.

The last thing to do was glue the sentiment onto the top center of the card. I would usually put the sentiment somewhere else on the card, but this reminded me so much of Christmas cards my family received when I was little, so this just seemed the right place for it.

 

Here’s what I used:

The holiday items will be available to purchase on September 1. Everything else can be purchased now by clicking on the images below.

I have a LOT of retired Stampin’ Up! items that need new homes. I mean, boxes and boxes and boxes full. I can’t even walk through the room they’re stored in! I really have to let this stuff go. Sooooo, I’m having a BOGO sale:
