SU! Curvy Christmas & Curvy Dies Mix It Up!

Hello again… excited to share the new stamp sets & dies available for customers Nov 3… So pretty and so much can be done with the Curvy Dies. I just recently got these in the mail (yep! Demonstrators have the ability to preorder certain items and this is one of them). Curvy Christmas stamp set will only be available until Jan 3, 2021, while the Curvy Dies and it’s coordinating stamp set will be in the new Annual Catalog. Pretty cool, huh?

And here’s the card I made for today – my first with this set.

Curvy Christmas & Curvy Dies – #1

Don’t you love that delicate curve and the little holes – so feminine – can’t wait to play some more…

The how to:

  • Whisper white card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. On the long side, place the Curvy Die approximately in the center. This will create two “halves”, one with the holes and one without.
  • On the panel with the holes, wipe with the Embossing Buddy, stamp with the curvy star stamp in the Curvy Christmas stamp set with Versamark ink. Sprinkle with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
  • With the Stitched Stars Dies, die cut a small star out of Silver Foil. Adhere with a dab of liquid glue.
  • With the Whisper White panel that has the curvy cut, stamp the sentiment, matching it with the curve of the cut, with Cherry Cobbler ink. The sentiment is part of the Curvy Christmas stamp set.
  • Create the card base… Whisper White card stock for the card base – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2: on the long side, fold the two sides toward the center to meet and burnish. (each side will be 2 1/8″)
  • Cut a 3/4 x 5 1/2 strip from the coordinating Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP and adhere with liquid glue to each of the folded sides, on the cut edge.
  • Adhere the curvy panels to the card front with liquid glue. Yes, the DSP is supposed to show through!

For the inside…

In The Pines + Curvy Christmas – #3

Don’t you love these fonts?!

  • Cut a panel of Whisper White cs 4 1/4 x 5 1/4
  • Using the In The Pines stamp set, stamp the tree outline in Shaded Spruce ink
  • Stamp the tree ‘fill in’ for the tree from the same stamp set + the sentiment from Curvy Christmas stamp set in Garden Green ink. I used my Stamparatus for this to get the stamp right where I wanted it.
  • Adhere the panel to the inside of the card and voila – the card is done.

For the envelope…

Curvy Christmas + Curvy Dies + Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP – #4

Aren’t these trees wonderful? A touch of whimsy to the envelope front. Of course the tree stamp is from Curvy Christmas stamp set, stamped in Garden Green ink. The DSP on the flap is the Classic Christmas 6×6 DSP. And the whole thing is complete – love, love…

SU! StitchedfStars

Hi there! It’s Terrific Tuesday – why not? We can make our day terrific, or not, and this is what I choose – terrific. Let’s go for it…

Today’s card is made with a die set that came out last year called Stitched Stars Dies. For the inside I used a stamp set from the new Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog called Snow Wonder. They worked beautifully together.

Stitched Stars Dies

This is very 3 D as the large star has three dimensionals in its middle. Tis The Season 6×6 DSP  is the centerpiece for this card. I love the contrast of another panel of the same DSP in the background. So let’s talk particulars… Die cut the 6 stars – I happened to use the same paper for all the stars and die cut them all at the same time. Then I took the largest star and scored it…from the center, score to all five points then score again from the center to each of the inner points of the star. Fold along the pointy score lines just with your hands and press firmly. Then fold in the opposite direction (valley) each of side score lines. it creates mountain/ valley creases. Before adhering, let’s prepare the card front panels.

Cut a panel of the Tis The Season 6×6 DSP that coordinates/ contrasts with the die cut stars. Behind this is a panel of coordinating cs – Cherry Cobbler. Both have been adhered to the card front with liquid glue. Now you are ready to place the stars. (Card cuts may be found at the end of this post.)

Put dimesnionals in the center of the star – I stacked three – and place on the front of the card panel. Place the other stars where you desire. I cut mini dimensionals in half to put on three of the other stars, stacking two of them together just with liquid glue. Only the smallest star was adhered to the card front with liquid glue. The three stars on dimesnionals also got a Real Red gem from Wonderful Gems pack. I felt the large star needed something so searched my embellishments and found – drum roll here – Star Designer Elements – and placed one in the large star center. Voila – card front is complete!

For the inside, I adhered a panel of Cherry Cobbler cs to the Thick Whisper White card base with liquid glue. With regular Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment in the center with Cherry Cobbler ink and the Snow Wonder stamp Set. I then stamped the trees, stamping off twice, over the sentiment with Garden Green ink. It’s important to stamp off at least twice so this delicate sentiment shows through the trees. Adhere to the inside of the card. Done, done.

For the envelope I used a coordinating red panel of Tis The Season 6×6 DSP for the envelope flap.

So what do you think? So simply done but a very effective standout card. I do hope you will try this and share your results with me.
