White Christmas using Stampin’ Up! products

TGIF Challenges #TGIFC30 – White Christmas using Stampin’ Up! products  – gift voucher holder

I’m back today with a White Christmas using Stampin’ Up! products – I was inspired by the Softly Falling embossing folder to create a decorated envelope for my customer gift vouchers this Christmas. I was going to save it for my Tags, Bags and Boxes theme, that I’ll be posting next week, but I’m entering this into the TGIF White Christmas Challenge as it was too perfect a challenge theme to miss. Go and check out the stunning projects the design team have created for this challenge, seriously I love them all!

The Softly Falling embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! just screams White Christmas to me – don’t you think?

I made the envelope using the Neutrals Envelope Paper, Whisper White of course. I ran it through the Big Shot in the Softly Falling embossing folder with the side and bottom flaps outside the folder, so that only the front and the top flap (that you use to close the envelope) are embossed. I then made a simple tag using the ornate tag top punch and Festival of Trees. It’s so pretty!

I’m teaming the envelope up with the card I made last week and it will be how I package my customer gift vouchers this year! (So if you know someone in UK, Germany, France, Austria or Netherlands who would like a Stampin’ Up! voucher for Christmas let me know 😉).

For those of you who do follow my blog, I will be posting the video from Friday’s card at some point this week. Unfortunately I need to re-record it! Those technical gremlins beat me! But bear with me they will not win!! 🙂

Well I do hope you like today’s project.  Don’t forget that the Retiring List has been published fort the current Autumn/Winter Seasonal catalogue, which means if it is on the list then it is not being carried over to the new Spring/Summer catalogue and therefore won’t be available beyond January 4th 2016.

Festival of Trees from Stampin’ Up!

Christmas inspiration for the Global Design Project “Christmas challenge (#GDP011) using Festival of Trees from Stampin’ Up!

Ok so it’s official, Christmas is on the way! Today’s card for the Global Design Project “Christmas challenge (#GDP011) uses Festival of Trees from Stampin’ Up! combined with a dash of Lucky Stars embossing folder and a sprinkle of Gorgeous Grunge – oh and not to forget a scattering of Jingle All the Way!

I think I’m going with this version of my card for #GDP011. I’ve seen loads of cards recently being embossed after stamping, which is what inspired today’s cards.

I wanted a subtler look for the embossing, so I didn’t run this one through the embossing folder. I’ll show you how I did it at the end of this post!

This one I ran through the big shot to emboss.

So how did I get that lighter embossing on the landscape version of this card? Easy……

…. I just put the card in the embossing folder then I stood on it! I moved my foot around to make sure I covered the whole of the card front! Dont worry – no embossing folders were hurt during this procedure! Lol! 🙂
