Freezin’ Fun

Winter isn’t winter without some fun freezing in the snow. Or at least that is how I felt as a child growing up in Wisconsin. That first snowfall was always so much fun! Childhood memories or being wrapped up tight with my scarf. There were times I was so bundled up to go out and play I waddled out the door. And as a teen I got to learn how to ski with friends on school field trips to Little Switz. Ahh… the memories cool noses and toes. So the Freezin’ Fun stamp set immediately spoke to me when I saw it.

After all who can resist these cute little animal images? And these images are perfect for coloring a number of ways too. While all these cards use our Stampin’ Blends for a fun bold color you can also you aqua painters or Blender Pens with our Classic Ink too for a softer look.

Want to see some cards? Here are 3 great cards using this set. This first one is done in Seaside Spray and Pacific Point.

The little racoon is cut out with the Freezin’ Friends Dies (153561) and has our lovely 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon (150446) from the Annual Catalog along with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (150646) for texture.

And this next card uses the money saving Freezin’ Fun Bundle (155176) to create this wonderful winter ski scene.

And finally this last card creates a wonderful winter scene using the fun shadow box card technique.

I can’t pick a favorite. Can you? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best?

It’s a Timeless Tropical kind of day

It’s hot and humid in North Georgia today which makes it the type of day you want to sit back and sit a cold drink in the shade. That is until the afternoon storms arrive. lol So today I thought I’d share some cards with a tropical vibe. Check out the set it is filled with wonderful images and uses a beautifully fluid font for the sentiments too.

The cards I’ll be sharing with you today were all created with the Timeless Tropical stamp set (151497) and their coordinating dies, In the Tropics (151495). This first one looks like a pretty picture. The frame was created with our Stitched Rectangle Dies (151820) and sponging was used to create the lovely sunset. A circle Mask was used it’s a simple technique – all you have to do is cut out of a circle from a sticky note, put in place and then sponge around it as desired. Striking right?

And how about this next card? It uses a simple torn edge technique to create texture and interest.

More texture was added with the Subtle (151775) and Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folders (150646) along with a bit of sponging too.

And finally, this last card today is a fun fold card

When you open it you’ll get a wonderful surprise. Once again the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder was used to create interest on the inside along with some sponging to highlight the pattern.

So what do you think? Feeling a tropical vibe too? Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more cards using this fun set that is great for all kinds of occasions and scrap booking too!

Cards, Cards, Cards…..

And now onto the penguins.

As many of you know I love penguins and collect them. (While my husband has banned me from displaying ALL of them in my kitchen like I did in our first home, you’ll still find some scattered about, especially during the holidays! LOL) My very first set that I purchased from Stampin’ Up! was a penguins set. I can’t resist these little guys! So needless to say it was one of my first choices from the Holiday Catalog.

So anyhow, I wanted to share these cute little playful penguins with you today –

This first card is simply gorgeous in person done in Gorgeous Grape and Seaside Spray. The Hammered Metal Embossing Folder was used for the back ground and then highlighted with some of our Frost White Shimmer Paint (147046) and our Dazzling Diamonds (133751) was then added to make it sparkle.

The NEW Shimmer Crystal Effects were also used for the garland that is wrapped around the penguin. Some Whisper White Baker’s Twine was added first, then some Shimmer Crystal Effects and finally some of the Snowflake Sequins.

And how about some perfectly plaid and traditional holiday colors for some very dapper penguins?

Do you like a little shimmer for your cards? If so you’ll want to check out our Shimmer White Card stock – it adds just a bit of shimmer and is perfect for winter cards like these. I also love it for water coloring and techniques since it is a bit heavier than our Whisper White card stock.

Make sure you don’t miss out on today’s promotions and then don’t forget to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a fun project, tutorial and video with you!

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Playful Penguin (150532)

Paper: Shimmery White Card stock (101910) and Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (149596)

Accessories: Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (150646), Snowflake Sequins (150443), Shimmery Crystal Effects (150892), and Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8: Striped Ribbon (149597)
