Flurry of Wishes Holiday Card

Flurry of Wishes card
Today I have another Flurry of Wishes Holiday card to share with you  from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.  Can you tell that I like snowflakes with blue and silver colors?flurries1-cu2

This is another card that I made using the resist technique with the snowflakes on Whisper White cardstock.  I have recorded a video that I will be posting soon for these cards with the resist technique.

Onto the details for this card:
The snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set are stamped with white ink on a piece of whisper white card stock that is cut to 5″ x 3 3/4″ and then embossed with Irredescent Ice embossing powder which really gives the card a lot of sparkle!  Next I rolled a brayer with Soft Sky ink over the piece several times.  I then used the brayer with a layer of pool party ink once.  To get the details of the snowflakes to pop – I used a sponge dauber with a lflurries1-insideittle pool party ink over the snowflakes.

The card base is an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Pool Party card stock cut in half and scored at 4 1/4″.  I then used a layer of Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper since you can never have too much bling on a card! 

Can you ever have too many embellishments on a card?I added Rhinestone jewels to the center of the snowflakes and one of the Winter Wonderland Embellishments on the bottom snowflake.  The Silver Snowflake in the center is stamped with Silver ink and embossed with Silver Embossing powder on a piece of card stock vellum.  The center of this snowflake is one of the Iced Rhinestone Embellishments. 

Last but not least I stamped the large snowflake with Soft Sky ink and the sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set in Pool Party ink.  I added a piece of white glitter ribbon to the bottom  of the piece of whisper white card stock.

Flurry of Wishes Christmas Card

Flurry of WishesToday I have a Christmas card that I made using the Stampin’ Up! Flurry of Wishes stamp set from the Holiday catalog.  This card was inspired by the Mojo Monday Tall and Skinny sketch.  A Tall and Skinny card measures 9″ x 4″.

Here are the details for this card:
Cardstocks:  Pool Party makes up the base with a layer of Whisper White and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.
The Whisper White background is stamped with the large snowflake from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set with Soft sky ink.

The Whisper White piece on top measures 2 1/2″ x 6 7/8″.   The snowflakes are stamped with White Craft ink and then embossed to create the snowflake background for resist.  Next I used a brayer with soft sky ink over the area of the whisper white piece.  I brayered 4 layers of soft sky to get the light blue background.  Next I brayered the piece with 3 layers of Pool Party ink.  Then I used a sponge dauber with Pool Party ink over the snowflakes to fill in the crevices around the embossed images.  This brings out the details of the snowflakes.

This piece is layered on a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and another piece of Pool Party Cardstock.  I added a piece of the White Glitter Ribbon from the Holiday catalog.  The medium snowflake is stamped with Silver Ink and embossed with Silver Embossing powder.  The center of the Silver snowflake is enhanced with an Iced Rhinestone Embellishment.  Three of the larger Iced Rhinestone Embellishments are added to the top left of the card.

Rhinestone jewels have been added to the center of the snowflakes.

I love the combination of these Blues and Silver with the Snowflake images!


Enjoy!

Resist Technique Class

Today I have a Technique Class to share with you that teaches you a couple of different ways to use the Resist Technique.  My favorite stamp set from the Spring Occasions catalog is Sheltering Tree.  I love the versatility of this set and the majestic tree.  You can stamp the image and make the tree look casual or very regal. 

Each month I develop a class that members of my Stamper’s Club receive for FREE as part of their monthly membership.  One of my stamp club members asked me to teach a class on Resist techniques.  So I used the Sheltering Tree set and developed several different cards using variations of the Resist Technique  The next logical thing to do was to video these techniques and put a class together to share with the rest of the world.  So here it is!

This class includes a Video demonstrating 4 different variations of the Resist Techniques.  Included is a color PDF with full detailed instructions for 7 cards using the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  The cost of this class is $25 and you will have lifetime access to the class and video.
