Welcome to the Pals August 2018 Blog Hop. We love to cut it out so this month our creations feature our favorite “cuts” using punches, Framelits and Thinlits from Stampin’ Up!
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 the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
On today’s project, I used oodles of layers and gorgeous, new products from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, available starting Sept. 5. There’s something really beautiful about layers of Very Vanilla and gold!
This Stampin’ Up! video shares even more tips and ways to use the Winter Woods bundle.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Create a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base with Thick Very Vanilla card stock and the Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Trimmer.
Adhere a 4 1/4 x 3 piece of Very Vanilla card stock with Snail Adhesive to a 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Gold Foil as shown. Adhere both with Snail Adhesive to card base.
Create the evergreen trees using the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Very Vanilla card stock and the two evergreen tree dies from In the Woods Framelits Dies (available Sept. 5).
Bump up the texture by using a Paper-Piercing Tool to loosen and lift the die cut boughs of the smaller evergreen tree. I painted Clear Wink of Stella Glitter on the edges of both trees as well as the boughs of the smaller tree. Adhere the small evergreen tree with Snail Adhesive to the larger evergreen tree.
Heat emboss the sentiment from Winter Woods Stamp Set with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Very Vanilla card stock. Trim to approximately 3 x 1 1/8 and flag one end using the Tailored Tag Punch. Adhere with Snail Adhesive below tree.
Emboss a 3 x 1 strip of Very Vanilla card stock with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. LOVE THIS DIE! Crop with the curved die piece from In the Woods Framelits Dies. “Paint” raised “bumps” with Clear Wink of Stella Glitter. Adhere “snow” layer with Snail Adhesive to the bottom of a 3 x 3 1/2 piece of vellum.
Adhere vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Wrap vellum/Very Vanilla card stock layer with Gold 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon and tie in a bow.
Adhere tree/sentiment as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere ALL with Stampin’ Dimensionals to card base.
