Pals Blog Hop: Cut It Out

Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”.  Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

The die used to make the township silhouette will be in the Holiday catalog which will debut next month.  This will be the first of many Christmas cards that I will make for my loved one’s this Christmas, my favorite time of year.  To give the yellow illumination in the windows and doors, I used my Aqua Painters with a little bit of Daffodil Delight ink and barely dabbed it on the cardstock.  It doesn’t have to be perfect and messy is even better. =)  Our Fine Tip glue is perfect for the miniature cut-outs, especially the edges of the roof tops.

The moon is not perfectly round and I used a Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight very lightly to give it a kind of dirty look.  I stamped it off to the side to remove a little bit of the ink.  Santa and his reindeer are from the Hearts Come Home stamp set, which will also debut next month in the Holiday catalog.  The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig came in so handy when stamping Santa and his Reindeer.  

Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on September 13, 2017 for “My Favorite Season”.  Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We’d love to hear what you have to say about our creative “Cuts”.

Winter Holiday: How’s it Hung?

Todays card was designed specifically for this weeks Stamp Ink Paper card challenge.  The design itself was easy, yet simple and what I love most about it is that the ornament can be gently removed and hung on a real tree.  It’s a gift and a card in one. Boom! Microphone drop!

The Details:

  • Tree Branch.  The tree stamp is from a retired set no longer available through Stampin’ Up!, but you can use any tree stamp you may have in your stash.
  • How is Ornament Hung?  When I showed my husband the card the first question he asked was, “How’s it hung?”  Well, I took a 6″ of the Gold Metallic Thread and looped it through the ornament.  Before tying it together, I poked two holes in the card with the Paper-Piercing Tool and ran the end of the thread in both holes. I used my favorite tweezers to assist in tying the thread and boom!  The thread is so thin it can barely be seen.  It’s why he asked how it hung on the card.
  • Perfect Stamped Alignment.  A few years ago I purchased a Misti tool to help me align my images.  But a few months ago my friend Justin told me that Misti now has a mini tool! OMG! I had to get it and I use it 9/10 times I stamp. It also helps the image stamp with more clarity and sharpness.  I never thought it was possible, but now I know the secrets of others. LOL.  You can gone one for yourself at the Stamp Ink Paper Store here.  After you use it, you’ll understand what I mean by a more clear crisp stamped image.  It has to do with the pressure applied when stamping.

Join us and post your Winder Holiday creation on the Stamp Ink Paper blog.

Stamp Ink Paper: His Name

Christmas

A card may not be perfect, but every perfect card is one that is made with your heart. Today’s card is for the Stamp Ink Paper Sketch Challenge.  When the Peaceful Pines stamps set was introduced  in the 2015-16 Annual Catalog I purchased it and never used it.  Something many of you may not know is that the trees are slightly different sizes….I like that!

Stamp Ink Paper #77

You too can play along with Stamp Ink Paper here.

The Details:

  • 3-D Stamping.  When I snip my stamped images to add Stampin’ Dimensionals for the 3-D look, I always stamp the image under the image.  I stamp it so that just in case the receiver looks under the pop up image they’ll also see a stamped image.  There’s no reason for it, but that I like it.  Do you do the same thing?
