Quick Tip Tuesday - Festive Corners

Happy Fall and Happy Tuesday. It's time for another Quick Tip Tuesday Video. The Festive Corners Stamp Set has become one of my favorites for so many reasons. It's unique and different and fun and quite versatile too with images and sentiments for celebrating Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day & Love. It can be a bit tricky and even messy stamping the corner sentiments in this stamp set as the stamps require you to use rather large clear acrylic blocks. Today's tip will help you stamp these corner sentiments cleanly and without an inky mess. AND, this tip can be applied to stamping all your narrow images and sentiments as well. Just use the edges of your ink pads. Take a look now at my video demonstration on this very helpful tip.

You can see in these photos how cleanly I was able to stamp the corner sentiments cleanly without mess using today's tip  -despite needing to use large clear acrylic blocks for just this little bit of stamping.

Try this Tri-Fold Shutter Card!

This Tri-Fold Shutter card is so much fun to make. After making my first one, I just knew I had to share it. This video replay of my September 16th Facebook Live includes a step-by-step demonstration so you can make Tri-Fold Shutter Cards too. They may look intimidating, but with my demonstration and tips, you'll see that it's quite easy to make.

The Tri-Fold Shutter cards in this video and post feature the So Sentimental Bundle from the Annual Catalog and the very beautiful Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper which is just one product in the gorgeous Poinsettia Place Suite in our Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. I love mixing and matching products from different catalogs and suites for more creative possibilities. 

Enjoy my video demonstration then get to work making a Tri-Fold Shutter Card of your own. I'd love to have you share your creation with me and others on my Stampin' Peace VIP Facebook Group.

 

I love how these Tri-Fold Shutter Cards turned out that I have a feeling I'll be making lots more of them.Tri-Fold Card with So Sentimental Bundle & Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

The sentiment and label shapes are from the So Sentimental Bundle, one of my all time favorites.
Tri-Fold Card with So Sentimental Bundle & Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

I used three different patterns from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper pack for this card. You can, however, use up to 4 or 5 different papers if you really want to show off your Designer Series Papers.

The Holiday Rhinestones and Forever Greenery Ribbon make great embellishments of these cards. Little details like these can make a good card great!

This view shows the back of my Tri-Fold Shutter Card. I added some Whisper White card stock for writing a message. Tri-Fold Shutter cards are great for sending from a group of people. There's plenty of room on the back for lots of well wishes and signatures.

Do you see the slight difference in this card from the one pictured above? I introduced a 4th paper pattern for the center section of the card.

These 2 Little Treats Boxes are simply elegant. I think they'd make wonderful table favors for a bridal shower, wedding, or anniversary. Perhaps, a tiny bag of mints would make a nice treat for these.

Quick Tip Tuesday

It's time for another Quick Tip Tuesday. In this video, I give you tips on dressing up your envelopes with Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper.

 

A couple of 1" strips & a 2 1/2" x 6" piece of of beautiful paper like the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper is enough to transform your plain envelopes into beautiful envelopes.Decorating envelopes with Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Very Vanilla envelopes decorated with Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper are absolutely stunning. I love the metallic gold on this paper. It gives such a classic, rich look to what were before just plain envelopes.

Winter Snow Embossing Folder Technique

In this Facebook Live video replay, I've got a fabulous technique to show you. I demonstrate adding ink to the Winter Fun Embossing Folder. This technique makes these beautiful snowflakes "pop" against their Seaside Spray background. Take a look and learn this quick technique. It's fun and easy. Give it a try then create some beautiful cards of your own with this ink to embossing folder technique.

 

I love how you can get a completely different look by putting ink to your embossing folders as I did with the Seaside Spray ink and Winter Snow Embossing Folder. Winter Snow Embossing Folder, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set

In the card below, I gently tapped the ink pad onto the embossing folder.

For a slightly different look, drag your ink pad across the embossing folder. Remember do not press ink pad onto embossing folder.

Quick Tip Tuesday

Stampin' Blends are my most favorite coloring tool. Use a very light shade Stampin' Blends Marker to create a "shadow" around your stamped image for more definition and dimension.

Thoughts of You in Autumn

What a lovely fall color combination in our Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. Cajun Craze, copper foil, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, gold foil, Mint Macaron, and Very Vanilla are gorgeous together and represent the fall season well. Here is a card I made featuring the Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set with a bit of Gilded Autumn paper and its wonderful colors. What a beautiful card to send to someone you've been thinking of.

Life is Beautiful Stamp Set & Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!
Life is Beautiful Stamp Set & Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

The 2 little birds & birdhouse are all on 1 stamp. To get 2 colors of ink on this one stamp, I colored directly onto the stamp with Stampin' Write Markers in Crumb Cake & Real Red before stamping the image onto the card stock. No ink pad used for the birds & birdhouse.
