Alcohol Marker and Vellum Technique for Cardmaking

Sept-16This week's YouTube Premiere featured an alcohol marker and vellum technique for cardmaking.  This is a really fun technique and you may find yourself doing it over and over.  There will be a supply list below but it's important that you have 99.9% Isopropol Alcohol.  This link takes you to the brand that I purchased from Amazon.

Alcohol-vellum-technique-stampin-up-1There's just a touch of this technique on the card above.  Can you spot it?

The second card was a remake of an anniversary card that I made for Jackie.  You will see the comparison in the video.

Christmas Treat Cone with Peaceful Deer

Christmas-treat-cone-peaceful-deer-1Today's project is a Christmas Treat Cone with the Stampin' Up! Peaceful Deer Bundle (English) [156391] and a remake of 2021 Stampin' Up! Halloween project, as promised.

I've always said that you can take almost any project and re-create it for any occasion.  I love challenging myself to do that!

This cone is super easy to create and would be fun at each place setting for your Christmas tablescape.  Fill it with mints or nuts or even a tiny gift.  Just change the paper or color scheme for a more elegant look or to match your decór. You could even add some twine and hang from your Christmas tree.

Let's take a look at the details...

Christmas Treat Cone with Peaceful Deer

Christmas-treat-cone-peaceful-deer

Aren't the glittered horns a fun accent?  Sometimes just the smallest detail can make a big difference.

A bit about adhesive... On this type of project, it is best to use a strong adhesive because you are rolling the paper and want it to "stay put" quickly.  I recommend Tear & Tape Adhesive [154031] and Stampin' Seal+ [149699].

Here is the Stampin' Up! Supply List for this project:

Product List

The Peaceful Prints Specialty Designer Series Paper [156628] can only be earned as a Sale-A-Bration choice for FREE with a $50 order in product by September 30, 2021.

Thanks for tuning in today for this Christmas Treat Cone with the Peaceful Deer Bundle and I hope you will create your own version for this holiday season.
