Star of Light

Star of Light

 Hello Friends,

Today's beautiful Star of Light Christmas Card is a stamper's delight.  And you can make this beautiful card with a short list of supplies.  Six to be exact.  Seven, if you count the Stampin' Pierce Mat.

Stamping with Photopolymer Stamps

With 21 lovely stamps included in the Star of Light Stamp Set, it's hard to go wrong.  For today's card, I started by stamping with what I call the "tinkerbell" stamp in Pool Party.

Tip:  You will get a much better stamped image with Photopolymer Stamps using the Stampin' Pierce Mat.  Unlike our clear and wood mount stamps, the Photopolymer don't have any cushion on their own.  That's where the Stampin' Pierce Mat comes in.  It provides just the right amount of cushion for a perfect stamped image every time.

Next, using Bermuda Bay Ink I stamped the message, the large star and two other stars as shown.

This is where the magic begins.  I love the way the larger star comes to life after stamping a layer of Pool Party with the "magic" stamp.

Ooh, LaLa, I love it!

With a 21 piece stamp set, there are plenty of option for the inside too.

Candy Cane Christmas

Candy Cane Christmas

 Hello Friends, 

Candy Canes and Christmas go together, so when I saw the Candy Cane Christmas Stamp Set I just knew that I had to have it.  Sadly, the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set will only be available a short while longer.  It made the Holiday Retirement list.  So if you love candy canes too, scoop up a Candy Cane Christmas Stamp set before they are gone for good.

For today's card the Candy Cane Christmas and the Jar of Love stamp sets joined forces to make this whimsical Christmas Card.

Card Making Tips

To make the blue mason jar, I painted Tempting Turquoise ink across a piece of water color paper.  After the ink dried, I stamped my jar and cut it out with the Everyday Jars Dies.

The peppermints, candy canes and the sweet season stamps are all include in the Candy Cane Christmas Stamp set.  I made quick work of punching out the  peppermints with the 1/2" Circle Punch.

For a touch of greenery, I cut several pine branches with the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies and tucked them behind my candy canes and my jar of peppermints.

I embossed a creamy brick wall with a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock and the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.

A Big Thanks to Merry Monday for today's Christmas Card Challenge.

Card Making & the Role of Designer Series Paper

Birthday Banners Card

 Hello Friends,

Designer Paper can play the star role in Card Making or it can be the perfect compliment to your  focal point.    It's the pearl necklace that dresses up any outfit.  Today, I am going to share 4 very different cards using the beautiful, navy and white, Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper.

The mixed patterns (flowers & polka dots) add to the playful balloon theme of this Birthday Card.  The stamp set is Birthday Banners.

 Designer Paper is also a great way to choose a color combination for your card.  Stampin' Up! makes it easy to do this.  The colors used in a package of designer paper are list both on the package and in the catalog.  They even offer coordinating card stock packages to match their designer paper.

Die Cut Gate Fold

Using the same Floral Boutique Designer paper, I made a completely different Birthday Card.  My second Card is a Die Cut Gate Fold Card highlighting the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set.  I made the gate fold with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.

Designer Paper also makes cute belly bands to wrap around your cards.

Eleventh Birthday Card

 Do you have a hard time choosing which side of your Designer Paper that you like best?  Try turning a corner over to reveal the other equally beautiful side. 

Other tools used for this card are the Owl Builder Punch, the Large Number Dies and the Number of Years Stamp Set.

Country Livin' Card

 For my final card, I went masculine ( Not bad, for a package of paper called Floral Boutique).  The Cowboy boots are from a stamp set called Country Livin'.

So what do you think?  Is it time to stop hoarding all your favorite Designer Papers and use them to make beautiful cards?
