ONE WEEK ONLY - Customer Gratitude Gifts!!
Ok, Halloween is behind us, and we can start thinking about winter (even though I still have over 100 roses budding or blooming right now. I've been posting photos of my October bouquets on facebook).. So here is a fun 4x4 card that you can make out of the 12x12 Under the Tree paper on page 5 in the Holiday catalog and the Kraft Cardstock on pg 192 in the annual catalog. (see this post from 2008 for instructions for cutting your 12x12 paper to get four 4x4 cards out of one piece)
I finally got to use my Ornamental Pines set... LOVE this stamp set!! see it on pg 27 in the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog or here online)
I cut the Under the Tree paper into 4x4 cards (see this post for cutting instructions) and cut the Kraft cardstock to 3-3/4" square, and stamped the pine bough on that (see instructions below) then stamped one pine cone, then stamped the "snow" with Gorgeous Grunge in White StazOn over the whole piece.
FEATURED STAMPIN' UP! PRODUCT:
Ornamental Pines stamp set #135104 / 135107, Gorgeous Grunge #130514 / 130517, Under the Tree paper #135825, Kraft Cardstock #133674
I have LOTS of GREAT tips for you when making these quick and easy cards!
Above: Use the dots from Gorgeous Grunge and White StazOn for "snow".
Above: for quick coloring, ink the whole stamp with a green ink pad, then just the stem with a brown marker
Above: add some snow with your White Uni-ball gel pen
For a really great tip on cutting out the pinecones and using your Fringe Scissors, see Cindee's blog post here!
Did you notice the cute banner sticker on this card!? I used the Stampin' Up! Basic Kraft Stickers (find them on pg 200 in the catalog or here online) ... and here is a great tip for using them, just peel the excess sticker area away from the shapes, and voila, you can see them and stamp them easily:
Would you like to try out a package of the Basic Kraft Stickers?
MY GIFT TO YOU!
Leave me a comment below.. I'll randomly contact 5 of you and mail out a package to each of you!
When I ran out of the Basic Kraft Stickers, I used scraps from the Kraft Cardstock sheets and made my own banners using the new winter wonderland stamp from the Project Life December Wonder Stamp set and the Hexagon Punch:
I just love using my Hexagon punch to make "banners"!
