Seashore Stampers Blog Hop - Quick & Easy Christmas Card

Saturday, November 26, 2016



Last Saturday of the month means it's time for Seashore Stampers Blog Hop! Welcome from Mi Ran's blog.


Today we are sharing last minute or quick and easy Christmas cards. Sometimes there are are those unexpected additions to your card list, or someone you forgot last year and almost did again. And then there is the busy schedule that has you putting off your cards to the last minute. Or perhaps you want to make all the cards at once, keeping them simple for mass production....

Now, everyone's interpretation of quick & easy can be different. So for that reason I am showing the same card, well supposed to be the same card, done four different ways. They were supposed to be landscape cards, but I forgo that when I made this first one.

This first card is pretty basic. Just stamp, mat, tie a ribbon, and pop up on the card base. Can't get any easier than that. Just remember it's supposed to be landscape.


White with a hint of red is quite striking. And, of course will work with any choice of colour for your Christmas card/s.


Measurements:

Card base- Whisper White Thick - 11 (5 1/2")w x 4 1/4"h
Real Red - 4" w x 2 3/4" h
Whisper White (reg) - 3 15/16"w x 2 11/16"h


Next, we take the above card and step it up a bit with some DSP. Using DSP for cards is another way to add a little something to your card/s without all the work. Just a little extra cutting that is easily done while watching your favorite TV show or movie.


Measurements:

Card base - Whisper White Thick - 11 (5 1/2")w x 4 1/4"h
DSP - 5"w x3 3/4"h
Whisper White (reg) - 4"w x 2 3/4"h
DSP - 3 7/8"w x 2 5/8"h

You can see the two parts that are popped up in the photo below.


OK, still keeping it simple but just folding it differently and adding a couple more cuts and stepping up one more notch. A Gate Fold card! These always bring a little brighter smile to the receiver's face because it's just a little more unique.


Measurements:

Card Base - Whisper White Thick - 11 (5 1/2") x 4 1/4" h
SCORE @ 2 3/4" & 8 1/4"
DSP - 2 @ 2 1/2" h x 3 3/4" w (cutting with the pattern matching down the center - could cut 1 @ 5" w x 3 3/4" h and cut down the center)
Whisper White (reg) - 2 @ 2" w x 2 3/4" h
DSP - 2 @ 1 15/16" w x 2 5/8" h (or cut 1 @ 3 7/8" w x 2 5/8" h and cut down center)

In the next photo you can see what is popped up.


If that is still a little too simple for you, you can step it up just a bit more by adding red mats to it. It's still an easy card that just adds time to cutting and matting pieces.


Measurements:

Card Base - Whisper White Thick - 11" (5 1/2")w x 4 1/4" h
Real Red - 5" w x 3 3/4" h
DSP - 4 15/16" w x 3 11/16" h
Whisper White (reg) - 3 15/16" w x 2 11/16" h
Real Red - 3 7/8" w x 2 5/8' h
DSP - 3 13/16" w x 2 9/16" h

And, again, just the two layers are popped up.


So there you have it. Three additional versions to the very clean and simple card below, all of which are quick and easy according to your style and skills. The choice is up to you.


Hope you enjoyed these. Now on to see what Addriene started with today. Or go backwards and go to the previous page the Mi Ran posted!

Onstage #5 - Sneak Peek - Special Reason

Wednesday, November 23, 2016



No more Make & Takes to share with you, but we did win some lovely stamp sets! I did find the time to make a card using one of those sets.So this is a Sneak Peek of my own.


Now this stamp set does come in a Bundle with dies, and can be found on page 42 when you get your new 2017 Occasions Catalogue. We did not win the die set, but the stamp set is a lovely one to create with. And I have to thank Mi Ran for switching prizes with me.



'Special Reason' is the name of this set and it includes some sentiments for birthday, congrats, and friendship.


In this close up below, you can see that I did the following: masking, water spritzed stamp, used my Stampin' Write Markers, and flicked my Clear Wink of Stella. I will be showing you haw to do this in a class in the new year.


In the photo below, you can better see the wink and glimmer of my Wink of Stella flicking.


Next, you can see two layers that are popped up with dimensionals.


And for my little corner inside the card...


And the card again, from the front.


I love stamping with my Stampin' Write Markers! Let me know if you want more classes using these versatile markers and learning the technique.


Happy stamping!

Onstage Make & Take #4 - Sneak Peek

Saturday, November 19, 2016



This is an exciting post for those of you that like to colour! Stampin' Up! will be bringing out Watercolour Pencils and Colouring DSP in the new 2017 Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Ccatalogues!


For the last OnStage Make & Take we were given the use of these products to create this card.


I can hardly wait to show you these products. We will have some fun with them in the new year, so look for those classes, or book a party with these as the focus of your event.

We coloured one of the pieces so that you could see both the colouring paper blank and coloured in.


Love the bumble bee, don't you?

Here is a closer look. We used the Blender Pens after colouring, but I would love to try it with a light touch from the Aqua Painters to see the results.


If you'd like to book a party to experiment with these products in the new year, contact me, and together we will make this happen for you. January and February is a great time to have a party to get out of the 'after Christmas slump' or 'Winter blues'.

I plan to have my Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Open House on January 14th at the Scrapbook Parade Crop held at the Langford Legion Hall. Hope to see you there!


Happy Creating!
