Beauty of the Season

I’m back – hopefully blogging pretty regularly for the next little while.  My boys will be home for Thanksgiving and I’m very excited about that.  I have one more class Wed. night and then Kyle will be home Thursday night.  Ryan will be here next week just before Thanksgiving.  I’m looking forward to a long weekend with everyone being home.

I had two Christmas Card Stamp A Stack classes this year.  One was this past weekend and the other was last month.  At each one there were 4 different card designs and everyone made 5 of each design for a total of 20 cards.  I wanted to share some of those with you.  This first card is one that I created with a simple little technique using the Magnetic Platform and framelits in a different way.

  1. On the Crumb Cake layer I stamped the Beauty of the Season cardinal image in the center with Black StazOn ink.
  2. Place the cardstock on top of the magnetic platform.  Place the Labels Collection Framelit over the stamped image – the magnet will hold it in place so you can trace the frame – both inside and outside – using the Project Life Pen.  This creates a frame around the stamped image.  Just a different way to use the magnetic platform and your framelits.
  3. Stamp the bird image again on Cherry Cobbler card stock and cut out – glue it on top of the first image.
  4. Use the Stamp & Pierce Mat, the Essentials Piercing template and the Piercing tool to add a pierced accent to each corner of the panel.
  5. color in the berries with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.
  6. Tie a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding around the card stock piece and then attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card stock base.
  7. Stamp a Crumb Cake envelope to match.
