Hi and welcome to today's post which features more of the winter cards I've been making with the fabulous Curvy Christmas stamp set and dies which are currently on special promotion during the month of November.
I thought I'd share a little video from Stampin Up showing just how creative you can get with these dies.
Well what do you think? Pretty impressive right? I enjoyed watching her put these cards together, in such a quick fashion. And, I loved how she used her Stamperatus for positioning an stamping. I have to try that more often.
Here is my card:
|The Christmas Gleaming Red Rubber Cling Set coordinates with the Decorative punches so cutting out the ornaments is a breeze. You can find this stamp set and the coordinating punches in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.|
|Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack |
|For the layers on this card I used two dies from the Curvy Celebrations Die set and basically I just played with them to see how they would position. These dies are available as part of the Curvy Celebrations Bundle and they will be in the new catalogue release in January. I find that using the dies on 2" by 6" strips of paper works the best then you can trim off any excess before layering on your card.|
One of the white layers is cut from a piece of Whisper White card stock that's been embossed with the beautiful Winter Snow embossing folder. The sentiment "May Your Days be Merry and Bright" is from the Curvy Christmas stamp set and works really well along the curve line, due to the fact this stamp set is made from Photopolymer and it has flexibility you don't get with a red rubber stamp.
|The detail in the snowflakes in the Winter Snow Embossing folder #153577 is really intense and yet the snowflake details are very delicate. I hesitated about getting this folder as I have an older one, but the difference in the detail really sold me on it. This embossing folder is only available until Jan 4 2021 or while supplies last. |
|The inside of the card is very simple with just the sentiment and pine bough for decoration. The strip of designer paper across the bottom of the card is 1" x 5 1/4". |
|For the Sahara Sand Version. I used basic rhinestones in the centers of the five ornaments. The top four were adhered with Dimensionals. I normally would only have three ornaments, however I made an ink boo boo, so needed more to cover up my mistake. |
|The inside of the card is wonderful. I stamped the Merry Christmas across the pine bough and added some Classic Christmas paper but in a different design.|
Well that's all for today. I hope you enjoyed these three card samples using the Curvy Christmas stamp and die set. I'd love to hear which card you like the best.
