Stampin' Up! Warmth and Wonder step by step card instructions

How To Make this card. Step by Step Instructions

Whisper White cardstock and Envelopes
Bermuda Bay Ink pad
Winter Frost Designer Series Paper
hostess stamp set from mini: Warmth and Wonder
Silver Embossing powder
Embossing Buddy
Heat Tool
White Baker's Twine
Simply Scored
Sewing machine (optional)

1. Cut white cardstock lengthwise at 4 1/4 so that you have 2 long sheets of equal width.  I suggest that you score them with the Simply Scored, at 5 1/2" before folding for best results.
2. Cut your shiny designer series paper (dsp) from Winter Frost in 1/4" strips until you have 1" cut off, then flip so that you are now cutting strips in the exact length you need.  Continue to cut at every 1/4". This will give you 4 extra cards if you do it this way.  1 sheet should give you enough for 52 cards and there is only 1 sheet like this in the pack.
3. Stamp tree in Bermuda Bay on front of each card.  Allow to dry a long time...maybe overnight.
4. Emboss dots over tree: rub with emboss buddy, Ink dot stamp in versamark pad and stamp over the tree image that you previously stamped, go ahead and stamp your saying in versamark and you can save a heating step; pour silver embossing powder over both images, tap off excess into a large container then heat with tool until shiny. 
5. Stamp snowflakes in Bermuda Bay ink
6. Adhere strips of dsp to card with 2-way glue pen.  If you don't have that, then put both of them together upside down and use your snail adhesive down the center and you'll be able to glue both at the same time.  Place them where you want on either side of your stamped images.
7. Punch a hole in the fold (I suggest a 1/16th inch punch) or use your piercing tool, right next to the left strip. Insert Baker's twine thru hole and tie in the front. 
8.  Stamp inside, sign and send!
Happy Stamping
If you need any supplies, you can purchase them here at MY STAMP STORE.  You can get the hostess set mentioned when your order is over $150.

Stampin' Up! Flip Dies

Another Stamp Fest Project I thought you might like to see.

This is done with the Label Card Thinlets Die (flip card) #133479.  This baby does all the work for you from cutting the design to scoring the folds!  Only thing it doesn't do is put your stamps away.

Cut cardstock in 1/2 and place die on top, cut, fold and embellish.

I then embossed the right side with Northern Flurry,
Stamped the Peace on Earth in Cherry Cobbler,
Stamp the ornanament from Christmas Collectibles (bundle with punch: #133283).

Strip of candy cane paper from Season of Style Paper Stack #132181

Also cut a piece for the envelope with our new envelope liner dies.  Awesome!  A touch of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, a few rhinestones and a very quick design!

Stampin' Up! Christmas Shadow Box

This is a beautiful project we did at Stamp Fest.  Got this shadow box for only $5! This piece really highlights our Festive Flurry stamps and dies and the gorgeous colors this year: Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana along with Smoky Slate and the pretty Frosted Finishes, really sets off this decor.

The frame is 5X7 so I started with Bermuda Bay in 5X7
Next, Smoky Slate in 4X6, then white in 3 3/4 X 5 3/4"
The snowflakes are stamped and cut with the Festive Flurry Bundle # 133285
I applied a strip of Coastal Cabana to the white and ran thru the Northern Frost Embossing folder.
The middle snowflake is folded, mountain and valley style so that it 'pops' a little more.
Of course there are still lots of dimensionals!

The designer paper is from Winter Frost #132341 and there is a piece of our new Silver  Foil Cardstock #132178 in the middle.

Try your's really so much simpler than it looks!

Stampin' Up!-Snowman Gift Card Holder

Here's a gift card we made for our Stamp Fest last month.  I learned this from someone at Connie's meeting--let me know so I can give you credit for the original design!
Card Base Pop 'n Cuts Die #130099
Snow Day Stamp Set #131895
8 1/2 X 11 Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685
Early Espresso Cardstock #119686
Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953
Old Olive Cardstock #100702
Season of Style Paper Pack  #132181
Simply Scored (helpful) #122334
Expressions Thinlets #132171
Early Espresso Embossing Powder #128980
Versamark Pad #102283
Emboss Buddy #103183
White Craft Pad #101731
Burlap Ribbon #132140
Simply Styled Embellishments #132148
Sticky Strip #104294
Ovals Collection Framelits #129381
1. Cut Cherry cobbler to 4 1/4 X 11 so you can get 2 per sheet.
Place on Die and cut (you can cut up to 4 at a time)
2. Place in Simply Scored with straight end at the '0' edge and score at 1", 3" and 7 1/2".   Fold on 3" line, then fold the 1" line back toward you.  This 2" are is where you'll place your sticky strip (just along the very edges).  Place 2 dimensionals in the center of the 1" strip (as shown) so that you don't obstruct the closure marks on the edge.
3. When cutting your 'merry', put a piece of waxed paper between the die and the cardstock which will help you to easily remove the letters. I like to attach with the 2-way glue pen.
4. Cut the burlap ribbon to length, then cut off both edges.  Cut ribbon into strips and 'fray' the edges by removing thread on each side. Apply it to DRY snowman with glue dots
5. I embossed the hat and the warm wishes at the bottom with Early Espresso embossing.
6. Then I added the little green bow embellishment that was already made for me by Stampin' Up!
This will hold a gift card and I think even an Itunes Gift Card

Hope you enjoyed!  Let me know below.

If you need any of the listed products, I would be honored to have you go to my store and get them.
