Love the Shimmery Dashing Deer!

Today, the Stamp Review Crew is bringing you inspiration for the FABULOUS Dashing Deer Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog!  I paired it with the beautiful, shimmery, Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper and Galvanized Metallic Paper. Combined, these products make one GORGEOUS Christmas Card.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 5 1/2″.
  2. Cut 2 pieces of Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper to the following sizes:  Tranquil Tide 3 3/4″ x 5″, Gray Granite 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.
  3. Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.  Adhere to the Gray Granite Designer Series Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Wrap a piece of White Solid Baker’s Twine around the intersection of the two pieces, securing with a bow.  Add a piece of Silver Mini Sequin Trim at the bow.
  4. Layer and adhere the pieces, as shown, with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Using the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine, crop the following pieces:  Galvanized Metallic Paper & the Largest Stitched Label Framelit Die.  Tranquil Tide Frosted Floral DSP & the Largest Stitched Circle Framelit Die. Cut the Stitched Label in half and then adhere to the back side of the Stitched Circle with Snail Adhesive.  Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Stamp the Filigree Deer in Jet Black StazOn Ink onto Galvanized Metallic Paper.  Zip through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the Magnetic Platform and coordinating framelit die.  Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive.
  7. Cut a 4″ piece of 1/4″ Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.
  8. Crop a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with the Big Shot and small Stitched Label Framelit Die.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive.

I have seen so many great creations using the Dashing Deer Bundle.  Last week I created my first double gate-fold card using this set (shown below).  I went with a non-traditional colored Christmas card for today’s creation.  Tranquil Tide mixed with Gray Granite, lovely!

The Galvanized Metallic Paper has just the perfect matte finish to match the shimmer from the First Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I used Jet Black StazOn Ink so that I would have to heat set the ink with a Heat Tool (to prevent smearing).  StazOn is fast-drying, but I still recommend setting it aside for a minute to ensure it is fully dry prior to cropping the image.

Mixing and matching the various Stitched Shaped Dies that Stampin’ Up! offers is always my go-to when I want to make a card with many elements and layers.  Sometimes I overdo it and add a few too many…but that is my style and I am sticking to it :).

There are so many different embellishments offered that would work well with this card.  The Metallic Pearls and Share What You Love Artisan Pearls were a perfect match for this card.  I decided to solely use the Silver Metallic Pearls, but I think the Tranquil Tide Artisan Pearls would have been a fabulous choice as well.

Pals Blog Hop October 2018 – Wicked Folds

Welcome to the Pals October 2018 Blog Hop. It’s a spooky time of year so watch out for “Wicked Folds” while you hop from blog to blog. We promise not to be too scary.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along.

A Dashing Deer Double Gatefold Christmas Card!

So, this is my first-ever gatefold / double gatefold card!  I don’t do many non-traditional sized cards, but this one was quick and easy and I am in love with the results. I have to give credit to Dawn Olchefske for the step-by-step instructions on creating the double gatefold.  Instead of going with a Halloween Themed card, I decided that I wanted to use the Dashing Deer Bundle to create this stunning Christmas themed card.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper to 5 1/2″ x 12″.
  2. Use the Stampin’ Trimmer or Simply Scored Tool to add score lines at 2″, 4″, 8″, and 10″.  Mark each end (lightly with a pencil) at 2 3/4″.  Cut each side at a diagonal from the pencil mark up to the end of the 4″ score line. Adhere the cut-off pieces to the inside bottom of the paper, ensuring that the opposite design is showing. Fold the 4″ and 8″ score lines to the inside and the 2″ and 10″ score lines to the outside.
  3. Cut a piece of Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper to 1 1/4″ x 12″.  Score at 4″ and 8″.   Fold in at the score lines and adhere the top pieces together to create a band. Wrap several times with Copper Metallic Thread and secure with a knot.
  4. Crop the following with a Big Shot Die-Cutting Tool and the following dies:
    1. Merry Merlot Cardstock with the largest scalloped circle die from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.
    2. Crumb Cake Cardstock with the largest stitched shaped circle die from the Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies.
    3. Copper Foil Sheet with the 4 small flowers and 2 filigree corners from the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies. TIP: Use the Take Your Pick Tool to easily remove the Copper Foil from the detailed dies.
    4. Stamp the deer in Soft Suede Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. Crop with the coordinating die from the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies.
  5.  Cut a piece of Copper Foil to 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  Flag the ends with the Banner Triple Punch.
  6. Adhere the Merry Merlot Scalloped Circle to the belly band with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add two strips of Snail Adhesive to the top of the circle and add loops of Copper Metallic Thread.
  7. Adhere the Crumb Cake Stitched Circle Die with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Adhere the remaining die cuts and flagged banner as shown with Mini Glue Dots.
  9. Stamp the top image in Versamark onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Cover with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set with a Heat Tool.  Snip with a Paper Snips and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  10. Cut a piece of Merry Merlot Cardstock to 3 1/2″ x 5″.  Adhere to the center of the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  11. Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 3 1/4″ x 4 7/8″. Zip through the Big Shot in between the Softly Falling Textured Impression Embossing Folder.  Adhere to the Merry Merlot Cardstock with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  12. Crop two pieces of Whisper White Cardstock using the edgelit from the In the Woods Framelits Dies. Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink onto the left side of the cropped piece.  Adhere the pieces together with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Trim to size and adhere to the card (Stampin’ Dimensionals).
  13. Stamp the two small deer from the Dashing Deer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.  Crop with the coordinating framelits and a Big Shot.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I just love creating the look of snow drifts by using the edgelit die from the In The Woods Framelits Dies set.  It creates a perfect canvas to place the two small deer on.  Insert love button here.

The Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper is jaw-dropping gorgeous with its well-placed copper foil accents throughout each piece.  Copper is my go-to metallic, so the Joyous Noel DSP has easily become my favorite go-to Christmas themed paper.
