Simple Saturday: More Time With Winter Woods

Create a simple friend card using Stampin Up Winter Woods & In the Woods Framelits Dies - Mary Fish StampinUp envelope liner

Today’s simple Saturday card highlights many new products from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  However, I have used them in a “non-holiday” way.  The Winter Woods stamp set, In the Woods Framelits, Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets and Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper (envelope flap) will be available to purchase Sept. 5 when the holiday catalog begins.

SAVE 10% when you purchase the Winter Woods stamp set and In the Woods Framelits as a coordinating bundle.  Available Sept. 5.  

This card is a perfect way to brighten my mom’s day.  She lives at an assisted living facility in Wisconsin and she treasures receiving my handcrafted cards!  

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base using Stampin’ Up! Thick Whisper White card stock.  I used the Stampin’ Trimmer because it both cuts and scores.

Stamp the birch trees (Winter Woods stamp set) as a background in Gray Granite ink on Whisper White Card stock.  I used my Stamparatus stamp positioning tool to help keep them even. 

The birch tree stamp is placed against the top rail of the Stamparatus.  I cleaned the stamp and moved it to the right each time, lining up the left edge of the stamp slightly over the previously stamped trees. Learn more about the Stamparatus with my video demonstration here.

Trim the birch tree layer to 4 1/2 x 3 1/4.  Adhere it with Snail Adhesive to a 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 piece of Gray Granite card stock.  I love Gray Granite (part of the Stampin’ Up! Color Revamp) as a modern and warm neutral.

Using the stem die from In the Woods Framelits, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Embossing Mats, crop AND emboss (don’t miss the embossed veining) three stems using Gray Granite card stock.   Here’s a must-see video demonstration from Stampin’ Up! on how to use the Embossing Mats and create texture through the “decorative ejection holes” on dies.  This resulted in the  veining.

I adhered the three stems from above to a 3 1/2 x 2 1/4 piece of vellum.  I can’t seem to get enough vellum these days.  Such a soft and pretty effect.  Agree?  The vellum layer was adhered to the birch layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  TIP:  Because vellum is sheer, be sure to place Stampin’ Dimensionals in places where they will be hidden below the circle and leaves.

Wrap stems/birch layer twice with Linen Thread and tie in a bow.  Adhere to the card base as shown using Snail Adhesive.

Using the Stamparatus (I rarely use my clear blocks any more), stamp the sentiment from Love What You Do stamp set in Gray Granite ink on Whisper White card stock.  Crop the sentiment with the second largest circle die from Stitched Shapes Framelits, the Big Shot and Magnetic Platform (to help keep the sentiment in place).

Add three self-adhesive frosted droplets from Stampin’ Up! Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets to sentiment.  Adhere sentiment as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the final polish, add a Gray Granite pattern from Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper as an envelope liner inside a Whisper White Medium Envelope.  The patterns of this specialty designer series paper have a gorgeous, shimmer white base.  I used the envelope liner die from Beautiful Layers Thinlits and the Big Shot to create the liner.

Create a winter holiday Christmas card with Stampin Up

REMEMBER THIS CARD from earlier this week?  It’s an alternate idea in a holiday design using the Winter Woods stamp set and In the Woods Framelits.  Original post & details for this card here.

Watch my 30 minute video review of my favorite products from the holiday catalog and how they coordinate with each other below.

This card sample from the Stampin’ Up! Alaska Incentive Trip was the inspiration for my design.
