Instructions:

  • Layer the Pink Pirouette layer on top of the Pool Party layer (do not glue together) and center the 2 3/8” oval and cut out.  Keep the Pink Pirouette oval and stamp the greeting on it and cut out with the Stitched Oval Framelit.
  • Run the Pink Pirouette layer through the Cable Knit texture folder and then attach to the Pool Party layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Set the Pool Party layer on the Thick Whisper White card base and trace the oval and then cut out the oval from the Thick Whisper White card base with the framelit.

  • On the back of the Pool Party layer, add a piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive above and below the oval, remove the paper to expose the adhesive and pulling the Whisper White Baker’s Twine taunt, place it on the adhesive and then cover each of the Tear & Tape Adhesives with another piece of Tear & Tape that you do not remove the top layer of.  Trim any excess Whisper White Baker’s Twine.
  • Adhere the Whisper White Sheer Ribbon along the bottom of the Pool Party layer using scotch tape.
  • Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the Pool Party layer to the front of the card.
  • Cut out a Pool Party Oval that is one size bigger than the oval used on the front of the card.  Center this on the inside of the card and adhere with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Cut out the snowflakes in the Seasonal Tags Framelits from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and adhere with Mini Glue Dots and add a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the center of each of them.
  • Using Mini Dimensionals, attach the greeting to the front of the card.
  • Be sure to wind your snowman several times, close the card and then put it in the envelope so it will spin for the person who opens it.

Feature Friday - Double Front Fold Video

DSCN9515w

Isn't this just GOR-JEE-OUS??? I am in love with this fun fold - called a DOUBLE FRONT FOLD. And the HALF FULL stamp set was perfect! I left the wine glass on the front clear...because it says I'M DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS" and the wine in the 2nd opening is red to go with the greeting that says "BUT IF THE WHITE RUNS OUT I'LL DRINK RED!" It's hard to see in this photo - but the white wine is covered in our FINE TIP GLUE PEN to make it look wet.

www.AStampAbove.com

I have so many tips in this video - they include embossing paste and a sponging technique with it, masking and great tips with the STAMPIN' BLENDS alcohol markers on top of this cool fun fold:

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog. 

Embossing paste is so easy - it's quick and it's not the mess that I thought it would be:

www.AStampAbove.com

This card is so very simple and it has a big wow factor! 

www.AStampAbove.com

Who wants wine now???

DSCN9518w

I love Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake together - don't you?

www.AStampAbove.com

It's hard to see in the photos - but I used the FINE TIP GLUE PEN again and colored over the red wine to make it appear wet too - such a cool technique!

DSCN9521w

Delicious!

Here's a comparison using markers on the left and STAMPIN' BLENDS on the right - it's a no-brainer - LOL!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - Back in Plaid

If you are starting here or joining me from the talented Jennifer Hills Blog - I think we all have to SQUEAL!!! Welcome to A PAPER PUMPKIN THING BLOG HOP. There are 15 of us in this hop - 13 different cards and 3-d projects!!! WHOO HOO!

 

6a0120a5bac552970c01b7c91a9726970b-400wi

  

I'm super excited to show you what I made with the November BACK IN PLAID PAPER PUMPKIN KIT - those little stockings are soooo adorable! 

Here's the kit:

 

S-l640

And this adorable stamp set:

S-l640 (1)

And here's what I made with it! I added the SOFTLY FALLING embossing folder and some GOLD FOIL PAPER to the kit with some cardstock and came up with this pretty card. I cut the GOLD FOIL PAPER 1-3/4" x 3-1/4" and just cut it on the bottom to match the banner with the tree on it.

www.AStampAbove.com

 

Then I got out my LAYERING SQUARES FRAMELITS and a little GOLD RIBBON to make this cutie. I cut the banners with the gold snowflakes on them to 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" and then used the scalloped square framelit that's 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" for the Elegant Eggplant layer behind each one.

www.AStampAbove.com

The first thing that popped into my head with the stocking was to stamp directly on it! I used ELEGANT EGGPLANT ink with the snowflake image and I pulled my WHITE BAKER'S TWINE through the same ink pad to dye it purple to match:

I'm going to put a gift card in the stocking with some candy - I can't hardly wait for Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving!

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

Whatever you may be doing today - where ever you may be - may your day be filled with friends and family and laughter and a great feast! And be thankful - I know I am!
