Spotlight on Mr. Moose

Mr. Moose is in the spotlight today!  By using the Spotlight Technique I am only highlighting a portion of the moose image.  This is a fun technique that is an oldy but goody!

Technique

The Spotlight Technique is a simple one to accomplish.  This card was made as part of the Make My Monday Challenge that I am a Design Team Member for.  You can join in the fun by creating your own version and then adding your card on the challenge page.  Simply click on the picture below to go to the page.

My version of the spotlight was created by using the Heart Punch, the smaller one, and punching a heart from a scrap of cardstock.  Next I placed the negative, the scrap of cardstock with the heart missing, over the stamped image of Mr. Moose.  After finding the perfect section to color, I used the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw around the inside of the negative.  A quick and easy method.  You may use any shape you wish as long as you are not covering the majority of the image.  By using the heart I thought it was a bit different and shows love for Mr. Moose.

Stamps

Because the stamped image of Mr. Moose is so large I did not add a sentiment.  But there are cute sentiments included in the stamp set named All Bundled Up, as well as a few other cute critters.  You may remember that I used the Raccoon last week.  There is also a bunny and a bird.  Mr. Moose is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored using Stampin’ Blends.  As mentioned above the spotlight shape was drawn using a Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  This is the only marker that is available individually.  It is a very handy tool to have.

Paper

Leaving the paper discussion to last was very difficult for me.  This paper is amazing!!  It is from the Lights Aglow 6X6 Designer Series Paper.  All of the sheets are gorgeous but this is my favorite.  The gold simply shines and I am in love with the design on this sheet.  The colors used are very similar to the Raccoon card from last week.  But after seeing this piece of paper, I knew it was The One to help Mr. Moose be the star!

And to further help Mr. Moose shine, I added more gold to bring out the gold in the DSP piece.  It is not just a plain Gold Foil however.  This is the Gold and Rose Gold 6×6 Metallic Specialty Paper.  It carried over to the current Annual Catalog from last year’s Fall Mini.  And I am so happy.  Both colors in this paper pack are wonderful.  Before you shake your head at me for wasting some of this beautiful paper, rest assured that I took this into consideration.  I cut the layer behind Mr. Moose from the center of the larger gold layer.  No one but me would know, and it saves a second piece of the paper.  Now you can released the shocked breath you took after seeing two layers of gold! 🙂

Corner Fold Card

Before I get to today’s project, I wanted to let you all know that I am doing a Product Share from the upcoming January – June Mini Catalog.  Last catalog I only did the paper.  This time I am  doing Ribbon shares as well.  You can email me if you have questions, or would like to order.

 

Now for today’s project!  This is a Corner Fold card that I have cased from The Paper Pixie.  Julie did a video on it that is great, as she always is.

 

Stampin' Up!, Tidings & Trimmings, Painted Christmas, Gold metallic, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps and Dies

The stamping and die cut star are from the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle of products.  I am in love with the star!  It looks so delicate and elegant.  Both of the stars are included in the bundle.  For the background of the stars, I repeatedly stamped the image from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set.  This card is actually a quick and easy one to do.

Paper

I used the stamped image to mimic the berries in the DSP.  This piece of Designer Series Paper is from the Painted Christmas DSP.  The pop of red goes great against the Evening Evergreen, except it is actually Poppy Parade instead of Red. LOL!!   The Soft Succulent background star is pulled from the paper as well.  The intricate star is cut from the Gold Metallic paper.  This is a two pack of Gold and Rose Metallic papers.  To make for ease in adhering the intricate cuts, I added the Adhesive Sheet to the Gold prior to die cutting.  The adhesive sheet turns the die cut image into a sticker.

Directions

As I mentioned above, I cased this from The Paper Pixie.  Here is a link to her video. Click Here

Accordion Gift Card

Simple and easy to make gift card holders are the best.  When they show off beautiful DSP, they are perfect.  That is what I have to share with you today.

 

Stampin' Up!, Stars Are Shining, Whimsy and Wonder, Jackie Beers

And here is the good part.

 

Stamps and Punches

The beautiful stars are punched from DSP using the Starlit Punch which is part of the Stars Are Shining Bundle.  I love punch bundles!  They are so easy to create multiple cards with.  And this one gives multiple stars in one punch.  I did not use all of them on the front of this card.

The sentiment is from the Stars Are Shining Stamp Set, the other half of the bundle.  There are some great sentiments and stamps in the set.  This one fit perfectly with my theme. For the inside sentiment I went to the Christmas To Remember stamp set.  This set is all sentiments that are sweet and perfect.

I used the Banner Pick A Punch to cut the sentiment.  This may be the first time I have used the single point banner instead of the two point one.  Also I used the Label Me Lovely punch to make the finger pocket on the gift card pouch.  Although it is not really necessary if you want to skip that step.

Papers

This Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper is one of the prettiest papers this year.  I chose the snowflakes because the pink looks beautiful against the Misty Moonlight card base.  Afterwards I had the idea to punch the stars from the same paper.  The bits of foil in the snowflakes are now in the stars as well.  And it was a little scrap of DSP that I used, so no waste.  There are a few added Rhinestones for a touch more bling!

Directions and Measurements

  • The card base is Misty Moonlight cut to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
  • The DSP layer is 4 X 5 1/4
  • The accordion folded White piece is cut 4 1/4 X 9 3/4 and scored at 3 1/4 & 6 1/2
  • The decorated top Misty Moonlight is cut 4 1/8 X 3 1/8
  • The gift card pocket Misty Moonlight is cut 4 X 2 and then notched using the Label Me Lovely Punch
  • The DSP strip across the pocket is cut 4 X 1

December Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “My Favorite Things.” The Design Team will be showcasing their favorite products from any of the current products and you might even see some sneak peeks, as well! We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

With my first flip through the current Mini Catalog, I Flipped over the Sweet Little Stockings Suite!  I am a dog and cat lover so this set was a dream come true.  Of course My Favorite Things had to come from that suite.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sweet Little Stockings, Sweet Stockings, Wonderful Gems, Wink of Stella, Double Oval Punch, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps and Dies

This adorable Santa Kitty is from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set.  There are matching dies that are for the different size stockings as well as the different animals.  Plus there are some extra features.  The Santa Hat is one.  I stamped the stocking and kitty onto the layer.  But the Santa Hat is stamped on scrap and die cut.  Each of the pieces are colored using Stampin’ Blends with the hat getting a touch of Wink of Stella where the White Fur is.

The sentiment is from the stamp set also.  As is the inside sentiment.  The front one is stamped and then layered using the Double Oval Punch .   A final touch is a scattering of the gorgeous Wonderful Gems jewels.

Here is an inside view as well as a view of how the front DSP layers.

Paper 

I saw a couple of different versions of this card with that many names.  To keep it simple, I am just calling it a Double Flap Card.  As is usual for me, the DSP is the star of the show.  This front piece is from the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper.  The way the card is folded requires the paper to be on both of the flaps for a continuous look.  All color choices came from the DSP piece.

Directions

The card base is cut to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored at 3 1/4 and 7 1/2.  Both fold towards the center, which is the normal 4 1/4.  They right side narrow flap barely covers the left side.  I will tweak my measurements a bit next time for a little more overlap.

The focal layer is a 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 square of cardstock that is scored on one side at 7/8.  Do Not fold on the score line it is simply a guide.  BEFORE adding DSP, adhere the square with the score long along the front edge of the right side flap and on top of the flap.

The DSP is cut 4 X 5 1/4 and cut in portrait mode if directional like mine is.  Then cut 7/8 from the right side of the 4″ side.  This is the DSP for the right narrow flap.   Part of the illusion of a solid card front is the matching up of the DSP and  how it is applied.  Adhere the left piece with normal margins at the top, bottom, and left edge.  The paper will be flush with the right edge.  Now adhere DSP to the narrow flap by placing that piece flush with the left side with normal margins at top, bottom, and right edge.

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on January 12th. Our theme will be “Time to Sale-A-Brate” when our Design Team will showcase items from Sale-A-Bration as the focal point of their project.. Until then, have fun in your craft space.

Pop Up Gift Card Holder

Today’s card is a gift card holder that I had not seen previously.  And since I love gift card holders I was thrilled.  I hope you will be as well.

 

Stampin' Up!, Frosted Gingerbread Bundle, Gingerbread and Peppermint , Red Rhinestones, Jackie Beers

 

This card is for the Make My Monday challenge which debuts today.  I hope you will check out cards from the other designers and maybe add your own card in.

And here is the magic of the Pop Up Gift Card.

 

 

The Gift

I saw this design on YouTube from Stamp With TLC.  She has a pdf of her directions.  The inside holder is two square boxes that are touching with the gift card in between them.  By using DSP, it makes the card quite a bit thinner when closed.  Another advantage is the paper is more flexible and you need that for these to lay down. I tweaked the inside card holder a bit and loved designing the cover.

Stamps, Dies, and Paper

You probably recognized this Frosted Gingerbread Bundle.  It is so different from other stamp sets that it is easy to pick out.  All of the stamps and dies are from the Bundle.  The “ornaments” are from a piece of the DSP, as are the two different pieces on the front of the card.  Gingerbread & Peppermint is an apt name for this beautiful Designer Series Paper! I love how it all coordinates.

The ornaments are hung using the Real Red Sheer Ribbon.  I also added a strip of it around the center of the card to tie the two DSP pieces together.  The peppermint pieces at the top of the two hangers are also from the DSP and are die cut.  And the inside gift card holder is additional pieces of the DSP. There is also a little peppermint next to the inside sentiment that I punched with a tiny punch.

Here is a PDF of how I made the Pop Up.  I changed the dimensions from Stamp With TLC version. Click HERE for the PDF

Heartwarming Pin Wheel Card

Today’s project is my version of the Pin Wheel Card. It is a great 3D card that showcases products perfectly. Best yet is that it still folds flat.

 

Stampin' Up!, Heartwarming Hugs, Perfectly Plaid, Jackie Beers

This is the overhead view to see the Pin Wheel.

The inside sentiment and signature section.

Who doesn’t love Ho Ho Ho ?

The special sentimnet.

Stamps

The Perfectly Plaid stamp set was perfect for the Heartwarming feeling.  I was looking for just a fun and simple layout.  It worked perfectly.  Of course, you could add as much detail to each panel as you wish.  I just wanted a simple addition to each panel.

Punches

To keep with the clean, simple, and my normal quick card building, I used two different punches on this card.  The Ho Ho Ho is punched using the Double Oval Punch.  The scalloped back layer helps the White sentiment layer to pop.  And the second punch is the Pine Tree Punch.  This punch matches the Perfectly Plaid trees.
