Card Making Video Tutorial – Using Christmas Bliss From Stampin’ Up!

Who is ready for a new card making video tutorial using the new Christmas Bliss stamp set from Stampin’ Up!?   I hope it is YOU!

Many of you have enjoyed my Mass Producing Online Card Class – and this is another card that would easily fit in this class as you can make a ton of these in a short amount of time.

Card Making Video Tutorial - Using Christmas Bliss From Stampin' Up!

The supply list is short and is below.  And here is the beauty of it…

When you order 1 of everything EXCEPT for the Cherry Cobbler card stock – you will want two of those – you will have enough to make 45 cards!  Watch the video tutorial below to see how crazy fast these go together.  AND if you want to add a piece of Whisper White for the inside (4″ x 5-1/4″) you will have enough to do that still with just package. 

That means, if you buy everything listed, except for the big shot, but including the ink pads, you can make 45 cards for $70!  If you already have the ink pads or the embossing folder, it is even less.  And if you need the Big Shot – keep your eyes peeled to this website in the next day or so.  (hint, hint!)

Here is the finished card and the video tutorial is below that.

Christmas Card Idea – Christmas Bliss From Stampin’ Up!

Christmas Card Idea – Christmas Bliss From Stampin’ Up!

Christmas Card Idea – Christmas Bliss From Stampin’ Up!

Are you ready for a Christmas card idea using the new Christmas Bliss stamp set from Stampin’ Up!?  I hope so!  Even though it should hit 100 degrees in Texas today, it’s Christmas time in the stamp room.  And as always, I added the list of supplies used to the bottom of this project to make it easy for you.

The funny thing is that it wasn’t supposed to be a Christmas card when the card started out.  It was supposed to be a thank you card.  I was working with a different stamp set and different color palette and this idea kept popping in my head.  I kept trying to push it out of my head and finally quit fighting it and went with it.  And I am thrilled that I did – I LOVE IT!

I can’t really tell you where the inspiration for the colors came from – it was originally red and green.  But it kept changing and evolving and was really just trial and error to get the colors.  In the end, it is Real Red, Marina Mist and Hello Honey.

The stamp set is the new Photopolymer stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Christmas Bliss.  Here is something that I found out today about Photopolymer – you can’t use your markers on it.  I should have taken a picture of what happened, but just trust me, if you want part of your images to be different colors, this is not the material you need.

So all the ornaments are in Marina Mist rather than all different colors, which also turned out fine.  When they were multi colored, it was just too busy.

The sentiment also comes from the same Christmas Bliss stamp set – it is a fun set.  Hang on, let me just grab an image for you so you can see the entire set.

Christmas Card Idea - Christmas Bliss From Stampin' Up!Super cute, right?  And only $15.95!  Total score!

(And I finished a video yesterday that I will post this week with another card using this stamp set.)

Then it was time to add some texture.

For the card base I went with the Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder for the dry embossing on the Whisper White.  Then a bit of texture was added by stamping Real Red ink on the Real Red circle using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

A bit more was added with the faux stitching using the Chalk Marker all around the Real Red layer.  And then I chose a ribbon that has texture to it rather than just being a flat ribbon.  And then added a bow using the 10 Second Bow Maker to get it just right!

Then it was time to do the inside of the card.

I duplicated the faux stitching using the Chalk Marker and then just stamped the ornaments again:

New Card Making Video Tutorial: Fabulous Four {Stampin’ Up!}

New Card Making Video Tutorial:  Fabulous Four {Stampin’ Up!}

New Card Making Video Tutorial:  Fabulous Four {Stampin’ Up!}

How about a new card making video using Stampin’ Up’s Fabulous Four stamp set?

Today’s card is all about little touches.  Doing little things to have a big overall impact on a card.  None of the little touches take a lot of time, and none of them on their own make a card pop.  But when added all up, it can take your card from feeling flat and boring, to fun in seconds!

And to make it go faster for you, I made you a video tutorial to go along with it.

The color palette came from the Flower Pot patterned paper from Stampin’ Up!  (I totally love having patterned paper that matches card stock!!!)  If you don’t have this patterned paper, now is THE TIME to get it.  All the $10.95 patterned paper from Stampin’ Up! is on sale – Buy 3 Get 1 Free!!!  Click here to grab your patterned paper!

And then the sentiment is from the Fabulous Four Stamp Set.  Look at this stamp set, it says there are four in a set, but to me, there are 7!  Lots of great sentiments in there:

card making video tutorial, fabulous four, stampin up, order stampin up

Then it was onto the accessorizing!

I wanted to add a bit more of a feminine touch to this, but not cutesy feminine.  So I opted for a butterfly from the Polka Dot Pieces stamp set.  (It has polka dots in the name and in the image, so you know I love it!)

And before we go any further, let’s go to the new card making video tutorial:


Here is the final card featuring the Fabulous Four stamp set:

All Occasion Hand Made Card Idea Using Stampin’ Up’s Amazing Birthday

All Occasion Hand Made Card Idea Using Stampin’ Up’s Amazing Birthday

All Occasion Hand Made Card Idea Using Stampin’ Up’s Amazing Birthday

If you need an idea for a handmade card, and you don’t have a lot of time, here is a great and simple idea for you.  It even has layers that you don’t have to add if you don’t want to.

You start by stamping your sentiment on Whisper White card stock in Real Red ink.  I used the Amazing Birthday stamp set from Stampin’ Up!   At first, I bought this stamp set for just this image, but I have used most of the images by now.  But this one is my favorite.

Check out all the cool stamps in this set:

That layer went onto a piece of Night of Navy card stock and then those went onto Real Red card stock.

amazing birthday stamp set stampin up

I dry embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock using the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.  And you really could use any embossing folder you want.  Slap that embossed piece of Whisper White onto a piece of Real Red and then onto Night of Navy.

Attach your sentiment and you are DONE!

So how could you make it even more simple?  Eliminate the middle layers.

Your card base would stay Night of Navy and then add your dry embossed layer on top.  Then skip the Night of Navy on the sentiment layer.  Seriously Simple!!

Below are the supplies used to create this card.

How to Make a Handmade Card using Big News from Stampin Up – Video Tutorial

How to Make a Handmade Card using Big News from Stampin Up – Video Tutorial

Today I am sharing a video showing you how to make an handmade card using the Big News Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!  The template of the card comes from Definitely Sketches.   Definitely Sketches is a program designed to share fabulous card sketches AND teach you how to use them!

This was the first template that I fell in love with from that program and I use it over and over and over.  (It is sketch #2!)

And then came the color palette.  I LOVE red, black, and white.  Always have, always will.  (I guess that is why I went to Texas Tech many years ago.)

I love how you can add in more neutrals with this color palette if you want, or you can leave it as is.  Today I through in some Smoky Slate.

Rather than going into all the details on how to make this card, I opted to do a video for you.

New Blendabilities Class – Local Only and Limited Spaces!

New Blendabilities Class – Local Only and Limited Spaces!

Want to learn how to use the new Blendabilities markers – and learn what makes them different from other alcohol markers?

In this unique introductory class, you will learn different ways to use Blendabilities to get rid of any frustration they may bring about – before it even happens.

 

There is nothing like learning the right way to do something, from the very beginning, right?

Because of the individualized attention that this type of class requires, space is very limited.

And because I want you to learn how to use them the right way, I am offering this class for FREE to those that purchase them from me.  You will need all of the markers to attend this class so that you can learn how to use them, and learn the different ways that EACH of the colors works.

This will be unlike any other class you have ever taken from me. 

We will break up your purchases of the markers over the next few weeks if you would prefer.  There are couple of ways to do this.  To register for this class, simply call me or email me (meg@iteachstamping.com).  First come, first serve on the spaces available for this class, so don’t wait to contact me.  And we will discuss which purchase option is right for you.

Class Time:  August 9th, 2-4pm. 

Where:  My kitchen table in Round Rock, TX
