Quick & Simple Cards with the Deer Builder Punch

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

It's November 29th - time for quick and simple cards.  These cards were made in the summer when I wasn't quite ready for Christmas colours, but wanted to get a start on my Christmas cards.  The Be Dazzling Specialty Paper was a Sale-abration freebie, do you still have some in your stash?  This simple design is easy to replicate with any of our specialty papers, foil sheets, and glimmer papers.  And FYI, the Deer Builder Punch will be carrying over into upcoming catalogues - Yeah!  The sentiment is from the Evergreen Elegance Stamp Set in the Annual Catalogue.




And here's the card details:

4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Polished Pink or Soft Suede card base (5 1/2 x 8 1/4 folded in half portrait orientation)

3 x 4 Be Dazzling Specialty Paper

3 x 4 Peaceful Prints DSP

Deer Builder Punch

7/8 inch x 4 1/4  Basic White cardstock (CS) for sentiment 

Polished Pink or Soft Suede ink

Click here  to purchase the Deer Builder Punch



 

Assembly & Trix:

***The only 'Trix' I have for this card is to punch out the deer from the Be Dazzling Paper- or whatever the first 3 x 4 layer is.   The first layer is hidden, so punch out a deer before adhering it to the card base.

*  Adhere the first layer of 3 x 4 paper to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (glue) - 4 inch side is horizontal.

*  Adhere the second layer of 3 x 4 paper to the card - 3 inch side is horizontal.

*  The Soft Suede card has a second deer behind the Be Dazzling paper in Soft Suede, to create bit of shadow and enhance the monochromatic card.

*  Stamp the sentiment on the 7/8 x 4 1/4 piece of Basic White CS and adhere with glue, or cut into two pieces and pop one piece up on dimensionals.


***Use up those Sale-abration freebies from this past summer - January 2022 brings us new SAB products!   Woohoo!  Stay tuned for updates and sneak peaks :)  ***

Painted Christmas and Evergreen Elegance for Freshly Made Sketches #512

 Hello, thanks for visiting!

Today's card is for the Freshly Made Sketches #512 Sketch Challenge, (FMS512) from Kim.  I've been challenging myself lately with the technique of distressing card bases and layers.  To me the colouring of this piece of paper looked kind of vintage or aged, so distressing it is, well maybe just slight distressing - I'm learning :) 


Click the image to visit FMS512


Please click on my card above or the FMS512 image below to visit their blog post and prepare to be inspired!

4 1/8 x 5 3/8 Crumb Cake cardstock (CS) layer

A Blessings Of Home Merry Christmas

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

The Blessings of Home Stamp Set and matching dies are coming in the 2022 January - June Mini Catalogue.  I received it early as part of the #onstageathome event this past weekend.  I love a bouquet of fresh flowers at anytime of the year, especially with some Christmas greenery tucked in, so I stamped the beautiful bouquet from Blessing Of Home and coloured it with reds and greens then added a bit of glimmer to add to the Christmas feel.    The Merry Christmas is from Evergreen Elegance stamp set in the Annual Catalogue.

My card was inspired by Australian demonstrator Maheswari Rajaguru.  Here blog is called 'My Stamp Garden'.  I love how Maheswari layers her cards, the card in particular that inspired todays card has a distressed middle layer.  Please see her card in the International Highlights Gallery we both enter each month.  The voting is now closed for November but check back here December 6, at 4 pm for the December Highlights Gallery!   Here's the link to see Maheswari's card #8  

My card uses the new Blessings of Home stamp set & the Merry Christmas greeting from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set in the Annual Catalogue.

Assembly & Trix:

***Confession, initially I used blender pens to pick up ink and vary the intensity of colour on the flowers, as I worked I wasn't sure I liked my colouring, so I moved to blends for the leaves  -  ***Happy Mistake, I knew I wanted to try the technique we learned at #onstageathome, using Wink of Stella to pick up ink colours right from the ink pad, so that's what I did with the smaller flowers, the result is sparkly flowers, so I continued to add Real Red ink and Wink of Stella to the large flower. 

*  Distress the first layer of Crumb Cake CS with an old pair of scissors along the edges to rough them up, wrinkle them a bit with your fingers to break up the paper fibres.  Then adhere to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, (glue).

*  Emboss the smaller Crumb Cake layer with the Timber Embossing folder and adhere to the card layer with glue. 

*  Stamp the flower bouquet with Memento Black ink on the Shimmery White CS and colour using the Real Red ink pad and Wink of Stella for the flowers.  ***Trix, to vary the depth of color on the flower petals, colour first by picking up colour from the Real Red ink pad lid with a blender pen.  Then follow with Wink Of Stella and Real Red ink, take care to pick up a very little bit of colour at a time, and wipe off the lid after using. 

*  Colour the leaves with a combination of blends as listed above. 

*  Die cut the coloured image, and extra greenery using the scraps of Old Olive CS.

*  Adhere the greenery to the back of the bouquet image using glue.

*  Adhere to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals (dimensionals).

*  Stamp the greeting using Evening Evergreen Ink and fussy cut out. 

*  Adhere the Linen Thread to the back of the greeting with a Glue Dot.

*  Adhere the greeting to the card.  ***Trix, stack two mini dimensionals on top of each other and adhere to the card, allow the 'M' and the 'C' to simple lay on the bouquet.

Questions?

Do I have to teach classes or demonstrate the product - No, you are simply purchasing a kit of supplies.  I welcome all hobby enthusiasts to our little community.  Choose the supplies you want in your kit and enjoy the ongoing perks Stampin' Up!® offers, or choose to move your hobby to a business, it's totally up to you.   

Will I receive ongoing discounts? - Yes 20% future orders.

What's the catch?  - I've heard there are quarterly minimums - what does that mean?  Stampin' Up!® demonstrators receive 20 % off their purchases.  To be eligible for the discount you need to spend $300 every 3 months.  - However - this Special Promotion is extra special because it's November -  part of the way through the final 'Quarter'  of the year.  That means you don't need to spend your qualifying $300 until April 2022. 


Enjoy and have a super day!
