About the Gifts

Saturday, November 13th, 2021

Unless you’re a young child, you know that the holidays are not just about the gifts. (unless you’re really, really hoping for that pony you’ve wanted since you were a kid!). For today’s card though, it’s all about the gifts, since that is today’s word challenge! Hi there, it’s Deb here today, for the Design Team.

GIFTS WORD PROMPT

If you’re playing along with the Scrap ‘N Stamp daily challenge, then you’ll know that each day there’s a new word prompt. Since we’re getting close to Christmas, I chose ‘gifts’ as today’s word.  And if you’re not playing along – why not? It’s super easy, fun and free! Not only that, for every time you share your project to the challenge page on Facebook HERE, you’re automatically entered to WIN a $50 Gift Card to shop at Scrap ‘N Stamp!

I pulled out one of my favourite stamp & dies sets from 2 years ago – I thought it was from last year, yikes! Time flies! It’s called Secret Santa, by My Favorite Things.

About the Gifts

Since the prompt is gifts, I decided to really pile them on! It reminds me of when my boys were young, and everything seemed to come in big boxes, so under our tree extended half way through the living room.

CARD DETAILS

On smooth white cardstock, stamp Santa & tree once, and then stamp all of the presents twice, in Nocturne ink. Use your Copic markers (or other favourite brand) for colouring.  Add some highlights with a white gel pel, and then die cut all of the images with your Big Shot.

Using some basic masking, I separated the sentiment onto 2 strips of white cardstock, again in Nocturne ink.  Now, create your red card base, with a layer of green cardstock on top. Add a stitched oval die cut from patterned paper, glued on top.

Next, layer all of the die cut pieces, some glued directly to the card front, and some popped up using foam squares. Add the sentiment across the bottom – perfect admonition for the presents, right?

About the Gifts

I think that Santa is counting on you to keep the secret about what’s in the gifts!

PLAY ALONG!

I do hope that you’ll play along with the challenge, whether you choose today’s prompt, or any other. There’s no limit – you can play along with as many days as you want! At the end of the month, one lucky person is randomly chosen, and gets the $50 Shopping Spree at Scrap ‘N Stamp.

Let’s Celebrate!

Saturday, July 24th, 2021

I don’t know about  you, but one of the things I most celebrated with vaccinations in place, and infections going down was giving and getting hugs!!  Gosh, it felt so great to have that personal connection again ♥  Fist bumps and elbow taps are fine, but nothing can beat a big ol’ hug from someone you love! Whatever the reason, let’s celebrate and enjoy our weekend.

LET’S CELEBRATE

Honestly, I thought that I had my busy week in hand, but alas – not quite! I was supposed to share this project with you on Thursday, for my Scrap ‘N Stamp word prompt of ‘celebrate’. Which would have been fitting, as my hubby’s birthday was the day before. But I got my dates mixed up, and so here I am today.

I decided that hugs are definitely worth celebrating, as I said earlier. So I pulled out my Hero Arts Big Hugs Stamp & Die Cut set and glitter!

Let's Celebrate!

The red and gold are so rich looking together, aren’t they?

CARD DETAILS

Start with a panel of red cardstock, and the Tim Holtz Flourish Stencil. Use Purple Tape to hold the stencil in place, and then apply Nuvo Glimmer Paste ‘Moonstone’ through the stencil, with a palette knife.  Be sure to immediately clean off your stencil & knife, for easiest clean up. Now, set this aside to dry while you work on the rest of the card.

Stamp the sentiment from the Big Hugs set in Versamark ink, and cover with red embossing powder. Set with a heat tool, and then snip banner tails on the right end. Next, use the dies included with this set, and die cut the words once from gold glitter cardstock, and 3 more times in black cardstock.  Use liquid glue to stack the layers together, with the gold glitter on top. This layering really makes the letters stand out! I offset the black layers under the gold, for a drop shadow.

Create a red card base, and glue a strip of the gold glitter paper to the left hand side. Pop up your glitter embossed panel on top, using foam tape or squares.  Next, glue a strip of the gold glitter under the sentiment, then pop it up on top with more foam tape.  Glue the ‘Big Hug’s die cut directly to the card front.

Let's Celebrate

Isn’t this gorgeous?!  I added a few rhinestones from my stash for some extra shine.
