Christmas is coming, Detailed Deer Stampin’Up! Card

It is hard to believe December is here already!!! I finished my last Christmas class with my customers yesterday so now I am able to share with you the cards we did in my class. Attendees had the option of 10 different projects to make in the class.

The one I am sharing today was created using the Detailed Deer stamp set and matching dies. I saw the idea for this card on Pinterest. Thank you to who ever created it. A lovely card and very easy to create.

Stampin’Up! Detailed Deer Christmas Card

To make the most of your copper foil card, die cut your deer from the copper foil mat. The cut away area is going to be hidden from view by the Merry Merlot mat on top of it. Why waste good foil sheets?

In order to get your deer pristine with no crazed lines pressed into it from your clear Big Shot sandwich plate, make sure you have a spare brand new plate on hand and use this as your top layer clear plate when you create your Big Shot sandwich to cut from foil sheets.

The papers are from the Joyous Noel Speciality Designer Series papers. These papers have pretty copper foil accents printed on them. So divine!!!

Drop by again soon to see what else we made in my Christmas Extravaganza classes.

Cheers

Stampin’Up! Beautiful You Acetate Window Cards

My April classes are featuring Acetate Window cards. I am having a wonderful time going through my catalogues to see which stamp sets are suitable to use for this technique. The Beautiful You stamp set just had to be used to create one of my sample cards. Also an excellent note to remind myself that every stamp set we purchase should have at least five occasions or technique uses that it can be used for in order to make a set a worthwhile purchase.

We do get so caught up in using new stamp sets from newer catalogues that we forget about what sets we already have from the current Annual Catalogue. Speaking of the Annual Catalogue, good news this stamp set will be carrying over into the upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

So here is one of my sample cards. This is the Night of Navy version.

              Acetate window card

Here is the Rich Razzleberry version. Both are lovely I think!
