Snow Globe Scenes dies with Seaside Spray, Silver  and Blueberry Bushel details



I always enjoy being with you here on the Color Fusers blog hop!

Thanks for joining us!



Color Fusers December 2019 color challenge


Working with a color challenge is just that....a challenge.  But it can be really fun!  Sometimes a project comes easily, but this month, I struggled a bit.  Than I decided to use the colors for the detail, and it all came together.  And these Snow Globe Scenes dies --LOVE--!





The dies in this set are fabulous for creating a mini scene, and the best stamping required for a great result!  I used layered dimensionals to create detail and depth in this mini scene with the deer, which is created from the dies in this set.



Layer dimensionals on your die cuts to create varying layers of depth and detail


And the textured background really pulls it all together.  Don't you think?



Pinewood Planks Embossed Background adds just the right detail!




To create this project:

  • Cut a Thick Whisper White card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
  • Cut a front layer 3 3/4" x 5", and emboss with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder
  • Die cut the semicircle piece from the die set in Seaside Spray cardstock
  • Die cut 3 sets of trees from Whisper White cardstock
  • Die cut a deer from silver foil


Tie a piece of Seaside Spray Metallic ribbon around embossed white layer using a piece of white twine, than adhere to card base.  Adhere the semicircle near the center. Layer trees and deer die cut onto card front, using layered dimensionals to create depth.   Color portions of the sentiment with a Blueberry Bushel Stampin' Write Marker, and stamp.  Cut out words with paper snips, and adhere to card front to create a custom sentiment.  Embellish with Snowflake Sequins, and add inside sentiment.




These Snowflake Sequins from the Holiday catalog are fun little additions to any Christmas or winter holiday project!



And this Everything Festive stamp set is so versatile!  Notice how I created a custom sentiment from the peace/love stamp?  I did that by using my Stampin' Write marker to color just the portion I wanted.



I hope you will try this project.  And grab these dies before they are gone!  They can be found on page 43 of the 2019 Holiday Catalog, which ends on January 2nd.

Color Fusers Blog Hop November 2019

Color Fusers Blog Hop with Everything Festive and the Brightly Gleaming product suite.



Welcome!  It's Color Fusers time!



Color Fusers November 2019 color challenge:  Cherry Cobbler, Pretty Peacock, and Copper



If you have been not here before, I'm glad you have joined us!  And if you are a seasoned Color Fusers veteran, welcome back!  



It's hard to believe Christmas is right around the corner.  In fact, only 49 days to go!  Time to start getting those holiday projects done! This month is a traditional holiday color combination with a little somethin' extra - copper!  The copper adds some elegance, and really helps pull today's project together.



There are many copper accents on this project!



I chose to use the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming designer paper with all things copper - copper metallic elements, copper stars, and copper trim.  And my favorite, a layer of copper foil paper to pull it all together!







To create this project:

  • cut a Cherry Cobbler card base 8 1/2" x 5 1/5", scored at 4 1/4"  
  • cut a copper foil layer 4" x 5" and die cut a decorative side edge
  • cut a piece of designer paper 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
  • cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 3 7/8" x 1 3/4" for sentiment


I chose the Stitched Be Mine edge die to create a beautiful decorative edge on the copper foil layer, which is layered behind the designer paper and adhered to the card front.  Stamp sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Add copper elements and a copper trim bow, than layer onto card front with dimensionals.  Embellish with copper stars.

Quick & Easy Carols of Christmas Card

Carols of Christmas stamp set, Be Merry designer series paper and Quilted Christmas ribbon


Let's face it -- sometimes you want a quick & easy card.


The large sentiments in the new Carols of Christmas stamp set lend themselves to quick cards.  Now, don't get me wrong, there are some great stamps in this set to make amazing cards, but today, I wanted quick!


Be Merry designer series paper

I busted out my Be Merry designer series paper featured in the Annual catalog, for a traditional Christmas color combination, and added some gold glimmer paper to dress it up.


The Quilted Christmas 1/4" ribbon from the Holiday catalog was the perfect ribbon choice to pull my colors together.


The gold enamel shapes are a must with gold glimmer paper!


Quick Tip: Adding an embellishment, like enamel shapes, rhinestones, or pearls, can quickly pull a card together.

Dynamic Duo glimmer paper and metallic shapes


To recreate this project:

  • Cut a Cherry Cobbler card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4"
  • Cut a piece of Be Merry DSP to 3" x 4 1/4"
  • Cut 1 gold glimmer scalloped square
  • Cut a Whisper White square smaller than scalloped glimmer square (for sentiment)
  • Cut a 4 1/4" strip of gold glimmer paper with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch

Time to Hang Your Stockings

It is that time of year!  Some of us are still pulling out Christmas decorations as we frantically finish preparing for the season.  And although my decorations are pretty much all out, I still have to hang the stockings!  I better get to it, right?  But first, I want to share this simple and adorable card with you.

  Hang Your Stocking Bundle with Presents & Pinecones designer series paper and coordinating ribbon

Hang Your Stocking Bundle with Presents & Pinecones designer series paper and coordinating ribbon


It is made with the Hang Your Stocking Bundle, from page 15 of the Holiday catalog.  I thought this was the cutest!  I made my stocking by layering the gorgeous red glimmer paper (pg 175 from the annual catalog) over Emerald Envy cardstock, than layered the whole stocking over this great striped pattern of designer series paper from the Presents & Pinecones collection, also from the holiday catalog (page 18).  The great news is, it is not too late to grab these supplies and get some cards made.  Even better, the Presents & Pinecones designer series paper is on sale, but only while supplies last!  I have added Cherry Cobbler Taffeta Ribbon, which coordinates with this designer series paper collection, as an accent (page 20).  This ribbon comes as a combo pack, and is also on sale, 50% off. The sentiment is stamped on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I also added a layer of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to the Emerald Envy card base.  Isn't this fun?


The color palette for this card is the ultimate traditional Christmas combination of my current favorite red and green from the Stampin' Up! color family.  Can't go wrong with this!


Now, head on over to my store today, and order your supplies before they are gone!  Thanks for stopping by, and visit again soon, my next post will be more High Tide sneak peaks!
