Stampin' Up! 2017 Christmas Card Ideas Video Tutorial #6

2017-stampin-up-christmas-card-idea-6Are you ready for the sixthin a series of 2017 Stampin' Up! Christmas card ideas?  I have found that the Year of Cheer Suite makes beautiful, clean and crisp  cards for Christmas.  And, the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper in that suite is so elegant and gorgeous and would be beautiful for wedding cards and decor as well.  You can see it in action HERE.

The Winter Wonder Embossing Folder makes a wow statement on this card.  The Whisper White is perfect, don't you think? And, for a beautiful accent that doesn't steal the show from the focal point, the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape adds a great border.

Let's take a look at the "how-to" video tutorial to assemble this 2017 Stampin' Up! Christmas Card Idea.

Stampin-up-2017-christmas-card-idea-4aThe fourth in a series of 2017 Stampin' Up! Christmas Cards features the new Stampin' Blends and the Christmas in the Making stamp set.

In yesterday's video tutorial, I demonstrated the process of coloring this little miss that's from one of my favorite sets in the Holiday Catalog.  It's so much fun to color and I've gotten to "practice" a lot with my new Blends.  I like to stamp a lot of images and put them in a box with my Stampin' Blends.  Then, I can carry with me while traveling, to appointments...anywhere that I'll have some time to sit and "wait".  The complete set fits nicely in one of my old Paper Pumpkin boxes.

Let's Make An Easy and Pretty Thank You Card

Easy-thank-you-cardToday's makeover thank you card is an easy and pretty style borrowed from a Stampin' Up! video tutorial from the past.

The creation that was the inspiration for this thank you card is actually a Christmas card!  Just goes to show that you can take any idea and customize it to fit your need.  Just change the color scheme and stamps and you are ready to go.

The Daffodil Delight (yellow) card base has a little added technique that's easy to do.  I used the sunflower stamps from the Painted Harvest stamp set and used *tone on tone, second generation stamping to create a subtle background. 

*tone on tone- stamping with same color ink as your cardstock

*second generation stamping - Ink your stamp, stamp off (stamp on scratch paper first), then stamp on cardstock

Tuesday Tip: Using Acetate Overlays in Cardmaking

Cutting CardstockFor the Inside of Your Cards-2This week's tip is the response to a couple of inquiries from my Facebook group regarding using acetate overlays in paper crafting and cardmaking. 

Now, if my memory serves me correctly, these inquiries were pre-Harvey so it's taken me a while to get around to it but it's always been on my to-do list.

The overlays that you'll see in today's video are from two Memories and More collections that I will be sure to list below. 

Let's take a look at the video then we'll talk a little more about it...
