Brightly Gleaming

Today’s cards all use the products from the Brightly Gleaming Suite Bundle found in our 2019 Holiday Catalog. I love the fact that this suite has punches which make multiple cards easy to do. And the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper doesn’t disappoint with its beautiful Copper Foil accents.

Check out these lovely cards using the Christmas Gleaming Stamp set

This first card uses the lovely Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder (150665) to add some texture to the background. It’s not just for Halloween, although you’ll find this Embossing Folder in our Monster Bash Suite of Products (153485).

Check out the Star Designer Elements (150430) and the Brightly Gleaming Foil Accents (150431) used for this card. So much fun!

This card also uses the wonderful Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder for those of us who like to add a bit more wow to our cards – Done in Night of Navy card stock it adds some texture.

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!

Stamp Set: Playful Penguin (150532)

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