Christmas Shaker Card | Picket Fence Studios

Hello my crafty friends! Today I’m sharing this Christmas shaker card over Picket Fence Studios Blog. For this card, I have used new stamps from the July Release HO HO HO and Reindeer Stamps along with Gin & Tonic Sequin Mix.

Let’s begin! I die cut this slim panel and applied inks to it using the Life Changing Blender Brushes.

Next, with the help of my MISTI I stamped the Reindeer Stamp all across the slim panel using WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed it with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.

Then, I adhered a piece of cellophane wrap from a sheet of chipboard stickers. I cut the cellophane slightly bigger than my slim panel. Then, I folded every side of the cellophane and secured only three sides at the back of my panel using double sided tape. I added the Gin & Tonic sequins through the side that was still opened and then I closed it with more double sided tape.

On a piece of acetate I stamped the HO HO HO Stamp Set using WOW! Embossing Pad and the heat embossed it with WOW! Metallic Silver Embossing Powder. I think this silver matched great the color of the sequins. I also, adhered this piece of acetate to the shaker.

Finally, I added a white scalloped slim panel at the back and a red folded note card and my Christmas shaker card was ready!

I hope you enjoyed this card and give it a try. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Christmas Baubles | WOW! Embossing Powder

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing this Christmas card over WOW! Embossing Powder Blog and I’m featuring the WOW! Christmas Baubles Stamp Set. I’m so proud to say that this is the first stamp I have designed for WOW! Embossing Powder. It was released last October at Hochanda TV Show. This Christmas Baubles Stamp Set is available at WOW! UK shop now.

Let’s shine! I started by stamping the smallest bauble, stars and snowflakes using WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed them with WOW! Metallic Gold Super Fine Embossing Powder.

Then, I colored the images using Copic markers. Once I finished coloring, I applied WOW! Embossing Pad on top of card and then added WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter with my fingers to create the look you see on the card.

Additionally, I die cut the word “Celebrate” from Birch Press Design several times and I created a stacked die cut to heat emboss using WOW! Sugared Almond Embossing Glitter and added a last coat of WOW! Clear Gloss Embossing Powder for a glossy look. Next, I added the die cut to the background using glue.

I also added a gold bow to the bauble, some sequins and gold Stickles drops. Finally, I stamped the sentiment using WOW! Metallic Gold Super Fine Embossing Powder

Thank you so much for stopping by, I really hope you like this card and get some inspiration. If you want to get this stamp please click here.

Have an amazing and blessed week.

Christmas Cards | Picket Fence Studios

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing three cards over Picket Fence Studios blog featuring the September Release 2019. For these cards I’m using Pattern Of Flowers Stencil, Merry Christmas Foiled Impression Die, BFF Girl Elise Stamp and Die, Christmas Leaf Bulb, Falalalalaaa Foiled Impression Dies, Straight From The North Pole Stamp and Die and Gingham Stamp.

Let’s start! For my first card I stamped the Santa, colored it with Copic markers and die cut it using the coordinating die. Additionally, I stamped the Gingham Stamp onto a white piece of cardstock and adhered it to a white panel using glue. Then, I added a white card base at the back.

I also die cut a white oval shape and a gold border and placed both pieces on top of the background as well as the Santa Claus using foam tape. Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment using WOW! Metallic Gold Embossing Powder and added to the card plus a few sequins.

For my next card, I placed the Pattern Of Flowers Stencil on top of a white card and applied Ranger Texture Paste along with WOW! Vintage Candy Cane embossing powder and Oh Gosh! Glitter. Once dried, I added a red cardstock and a white card base at the back. Also, I stamped and colored this cutie girl “Elise” using Copic markers, then using the coordinating die I die cut her and put her on top of the the background using foam tape.

Lastly, I placed on top the Merry Christmas die cut which was foiled and cut using the Merry Christmas Foiled Impression Die on my Gemini Foilpress Machine.

For my last Christmas card, I adhered a specialty cardstock, which was a gold glitter cardstock and a red card base at the back. Then, I foiled the Christmas Leaf Bulb Foiled Impression Die onto red cardstock and the Falalalalaaa Foiled Impression Die with white cardstock using my Gemini Foilpress Machine.

Finally, I adhered the foiled Christmas Bulb to the card using foam tape, the Falalalalaaa foiled die cut with double sided tape and a piece of natural twine on top of the bulb.

These were my cards for today and I hope I could inspire you a bit. Have a wonderful Friday!

Die Cutting + Gold Embossing | Trinity Stamps

Hi crafty friends! It’s Fri-YAY! And I’m up at Trinity Stamps blog sharing two Christmas cards featuring Winter Botanical stamps. There’s a lot of die cutting in these cards, but once you get everything done it’s very easy to put all together.

Let’s begin! I started by stamping in 4 different colors of cardstock all the images, using Versamark emboss ink and heat embossed them with WOW Metallic Gold embossing powder.

Then I die cut all images using the matching dies.

For my first card, I used a black panel as my background and I arranged some images top, using tape runner and foam tape.

Next, I placed this panel onto gold cardstock and finally I adhered a red card base on the back using tape runner.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment onto Neenah Desert Storm 80 lb and heat embossed it with WOW Metallic Gold embossing powder and added it to the bottom of the card.

For my second card, I used Kraft cardstock, which is also great to create contrast with the images.

I adhered this kraft panel to a red card base using tape runner.

For this card, I created small arrangements with the flowers and greenery.

I put the arrangements in the upper right side of the card.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. This sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Christmas Wishes Stamp.

These were my two cards for today at Trinity Stamps blog. I love the contrast of the red flowers and the black background. They pop up so beautifully! And the small arrangements are really adorable. There are so many possibilities with the Winter Botanical Stamp and dies.

Please stop by Trinity Stamps blog and leave some love to the others designers. And if you want to buy some goodies go to Trinity Stamps website. Have a blessed day!
