The Elegant Dasher

Hello Crafty Friends – Happy Friday.  For the last several weeks I have been furiously working on my Christmas Cards Stamp A Stack.  I think I have my four cards but I'm still pluggin' away trying for a few more.  My card today is a SS (Simply Simple) but it has a WOW factor to it.  I'm just lovin this new in-color Concord Crush #119792.  It is one of the rich deep purples that a purple lover just gushes over.  LOL Anyway I used Concord Crush as my base color cut at 4.25 x 11" and scored at 5.5.Dasher Holiday Mini Stampinup' Up Christmas Cards Snowflake Folder  I then took a piece of Whisper White cut at 5.25 x 4" and embossed it with a Snowflake Cuttlebug Folder.  We have a new release in our Holiday Mini called the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder #120902 found on pg 26 of the Holiday Mini.  It's on my wish list.  My focal point is the Scallop Circle #2 die cut #113469.  Boy, this has become a staple in my die cut collection.  The circle is a 3" circle which you can get by using the Circle Scissors Plus and Glass Matt #112530/112531.  My stamp set is one of my Christmas Favorites Dasher #116816.  It is just one of the many new one piece stamp sets that Stampin' Up has made available to us and it's easy on our pocket books.  I embellished just a little with silver nail heads non-SU and some silver cord (retired).  I didn't just stop there, oh no I had to do a little magic on the inside.  I pulled out one of the stamps from the new stamp set called Artisic Etchings #120573, you know the one Artistic Etchings Four The Holidaywith the tower.  Anyhoo I used the medallion stamp from this set.  It's such an elegant stamp.  My sentiment is from Four The Holidays #116921.  It has a very pretty font.  For the added touch I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch #118402 on the bottom of my WW piece.

Batty For You

Good Morning My Stamping Friends – Welcome to Wednesday.  Today I have another Halloween Card to share with you.  This time I'm using the Stampin' Up Set called Batty For You..  The item number is 116576 and you can find it on page 25 of your catty.  For my cardstock I used Pumpkin Pie #105117.  this is always a favorite color this time of year.  I used the spider web stamp from the set Wicked Cool #120600 and sponged all around the card with Basic Black #101179My vertical piece of cardstock is Concord Crush #119792.  I made the strip a little longer than the card itself and used the Crimping Tool #101618, then cut off my edges with scissors.  (TIP:  The crimping tool will shrink up you paper just a tad so by making it longer at first you know it will fit the length of your card).  Then I tore my edges for that well worn scarey look.  I don't  use this tool very often any more but all things old become new again with time.  You can find this tool on pg 198.  If you're in need of some texture on your card this tool is for you.  I also matted a piece of Pear Pizzazz #119795 behind my Concord Crush and tore its edge as well.  I used three stamps from the set Batty For You #116576 and matted them on matching cardstock.  For my circles I used the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches #'s 119861/119860.  My sentiment is from Wicked Cool #120600 as well and is punched with our new Decorative Label Punch #120907 from the Holiday Mini and then I used some black nail heads (non SU) to give it some depth.  My ribbon is Pumpkin Pie 1/4" grosgrain #109030.
