Coming Home for Holidays & EVERY Day

“If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I shouldn’t look any further than my own backyard.” – Dorothy of Oz

Since there is “No Place Like Home”, I have two fun fold (and fairly simple) cards to share with you today using the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home bundle (which is retiring SOON!):

Use the tree and hill die (shown below) to cut off the top third of the front of your side-fold card, then stamp the houses in black on various colors of card stock, cut out and layer on the front of your card.

Coming Home Bundle

The second card is the same layout with different colors for a thoughtful welcome home card for a new neighbor:

The card opens to reveal the message, so you could change the sentiment and say “Welcome Home” for a missionary or someone coming home from a long time away.

I’ve created a .pdf tutorial for you to download with instructions and the supplies listed:

Splendor of Snowflakes: On Paper

The August–December 2020 Mini Catalog Inspiration

Pull on a cozy sweater before you start stamping with the Snowflake Splendor Suite~ It’s the perfect storm of winter crafting supplies!
Don’t be snow-blinded that this is just a holiday suite: The sensational sentiments will keep you stamping the whole winter through: Think of friendships and winter birthdays. 

The Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper complements the stamps and dies with hand-painted, watercolor snowflakes in lots of icy purples and blues, but the tutorial I’m sharing changes up the colors and design for a bit of rustic glamour and a little tweak to the standard card size.

Place for Poinsettias

The August–December 2020 Mini Catalog Inspiration

POINSETTIA PLACE SUITE

The ICONIC flower of the holidays, a poinsettia looks as elegant on your cards as it does on your table! 

Special touches like the flocked vellum in the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper (#153486), the dazzling Beaded Pearls (#153534), and the elegant Real Red Sheer Ribbon (#153535) make this suite stand out and shine. I also love that the Poinsettia Dies (#153522) have duplicates of several dies. That means when you stamp the layering poinsettia and leaf images from the coordinating Poinsettia Petals stamp set (#153475), you can save time by cutting out two of each at one time. We all love to save time!

From traditional colors to modern, monochrome elegance you’ll be amazed at all the different styles you can create with this suite

Embrace The Curves

Curvy Celebrations

Embrace your CURVES: Especially in your craft room! These NEW curvy stamps and dies are the perfect twist to take your projects beyond the ordinary. 

You can begin creating NOW with the early-release of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle, part of which will be available January 5th… but you don’t want to wait and here’s why: 

Through January 4th only, you can get the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle that includes two additional, exclusive, coordinating Christmas themed goodies and save 10% on it all!

Taking the curves into Christmas, I used the coordinating “Classic Christmas” Designer Series Paper stack to pull the theme all the way through, even though it stays with a monochromatic (Shaded Spruce) palette.

Another holiday card: The decorated edges really dress up the edge of a card…or make a pretty banner!

You won’t be able to get the Curvy Christmas stamp set or Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper once it goes live with the 2021 January-June Mini Catalog; They are only available as part of this special pre-order period (or while supplies last) so don’t delay~ add a curvy touch to your Christmas projects while you can.

TRIMMING THE TOWN SUITE

Theater Card: Whale of a Time

This is a card you send to someone you really *really* REALLY love… and they are going to love it, too!

IMG_6468-(W)

We made this at our July stamp club so you don’t need to be cautious to try it: It’s easier than it looks and the trick is to cut the basic pieces first.

Once you’ve made one Theater Card, you’ll want to make another. I’m here to make it easier for you with a video tutorial and cutting guide (see below).

Before I give you the cutting instructions, I wanted to tell you that today is World Day against Human Trafficking: Did you know we have more people enslaved now than ANY other time in the world?  And of the 30 million current slaves, 10 million are children? I’ve supported Operation Underground Rescue as my primary charity since I learned about this pernicious plague 3 years ago, so I’m linking arms again today and tomorrow with O.U.R. to help make a difference and your order will help!

savingPNG

Thank you for considering how to help make a difference and Rise Up for the children. Now on to the instructions for your Theater Card pieces.

Cutting Guide:
Cut the following pieces from the same color of card stock:

  • (2) 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”
  • (2) 4” x 5-3/8” scored in landscape position at 1-1/16” and 2-5/8” (watch video for instructions to cut slits)
  • (2) 6-1/4” x 3/4” strips, scored on each end at 1”
  • (1) 1-1/4” x 4-1/4” trimmed to an i-Beam (see video)

Designer Series Paper (DSP)

  • 5-1/4” x 4” for front of card
  • 3” x 4” for back of “stage”
  • 3/4” x 4” for front of I-Beam (optional)

Tips:

  1. Layer the largest piece of DSP on the front of a 4-1/4” x 5-1/2” panel (don’t adhere them together yet). Use the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a window in the front of both
  2. Adhere the DSP frame to card stock frame, and cut the piece of DSP from the inside of the frame in half to use for the “curtain” later.
  3. Use the Multipurpose liquid glue: It has some “wiggle room” while it is wet, then a firm bond once it dries.
