Stampin’ Up! Washi Striped Cheers to the Year

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  It’s Wednesday and things are going well here in Utah!  The days are brisk and gorgeous.  Things are working pretty much how one might expect.  And…only 45 days to go!  Whoo-hoo!

So – my card today is so quick and so easy and so fun – that it’s sorta cray cray!  I just used some pretty metallic Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape and the Cheers to the Year stamp set to make a pretty mixed metals holiday season card.  Take a look-see:

The layout is from the sketch portion of the Fusion Challenge.  

This one’ll go quick y’all, so buckle up!

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and ran strips of the new Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape up from the bottom.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Champagne Foil mat.

Done!

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere a Foil Snowflake – Vanilla side up – to the card front.

For my sentiment, I heat embossed the striped circle image in Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Very Vanilla.  Then I added the sentiment – heat embossed in Gold – in the center, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I punched it out with my 2″ Circle Punch.  Using the new Starburst Punch, I made a Champagne Foil mat and adhered the sentiment to it with Liquid Glue.

I put several Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the matted circle and used them to wind loops of Copper Metallic Thread around and around.  Then I popped it all onto the snowflake and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added some more of the Specialty Washi Tape on the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel.  Uhm….how easy is that??

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Champagne Foil mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a Copper heat embossed snowflake from the Cheers to the Year stamp set on the front…

…and more Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape on the envelope flap.  Just lay the strips down (start at the top) and then trim the excess with your Paper Snips!

Et Voila!  Pretty.  Easy.  Fun!  And – suitable for Christmas, Holiday Greetings, a wedding?  New Baby??

Gotta love this beautiful metallic Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape and the wonderful Cheers to the Year stamp set.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Mixed Metals Cheers to the Year

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope that the clean up is making a dent – the power (and air conditioning!!) are back – and that life is beginning the slow slog back towards normal for everyone!  I know you’ve got a long row to hoe ahead.

Wayne has started the fence repairing and tree removing.  Not a lot of damage – but enough that there’s going to be work.

Finn is trying to help.  More on that below!

So – if y’all know me at all, you know that Clean-and-Simple isn’t really my first choice in card design.  It’s hard for me, so…I don’t do a lot of CAS cards.  But for today, I wanted to play with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, so I gave it a whirl.  I made my CAS-try with the new Cheers to the Year stamp set and some mixed metal embellishments (but not a lot of them, cuz…CAS!!).  Take a look-see:

And the aforementioned FMS challenge is what lead me to the layout.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock for the card front.  I took the two snowflake images from the Cheers to the Year stamp set and placed both of them on an acrylic block, then inked them in Versamark.  I stamped the snowflake duo all over the card front, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated them up.  Then I matted the panel on a piece of Champagne Foil.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered a Gold Foil Snowflake to the card front.  Then I cut a strip of paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and one from Champagne Foil and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  The middle – and longest – strip, is a piece of Whisper White card stock that I wrapped with one of the Year of Cheer Designer Washi Tape designs.  Then I popped that over the other two strips with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I first stamped the circle shape from Cheers to the Year in Versamark on Whisper White and heat embossed it in Copper.  I added the sentiment – using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig – to the middle of the circle in Versamark and then heat embossed it with my DIY “champagne” embossing powder (one part silver to one part gold, mixed).  Then I cut it out with a Circles Layering Framelits die and popped it on with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals and some Liquid Glue.

The finishing touch is a silver Year of Cheer Embellishment, tucked under the sentiment with a Glue Dot!

On the inside, I used  my DIY “champagne” embossing powder to heat emboss the second sentiment from Cheers to the Year on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added another couple of snowflakes, heat embossed in White (in the bottom right corner – incredibly hard to see.  Sorry! 🙁 ).

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Champagne Foil mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another pair of Cheers to the Year embossed snowflakes on the front…

…and some Year of Cheer Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Although CAS isn’t usually my cup of tea – I really like how this turned out!  Cheers to the Year gives you Christmas sentiments as well as more year-round sentiments useful for weddings or anniversaries.  And there’s even a New Year’s greeting!  So…very versatile!  And we have such beautiful metals to work with!  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  

There’s a lot of cleanup to do after a hurricane almost comes thru your house.

Trees.  Limbs.  Sticks everywhere!

Wayne is working to get things cleaned up – so, Finn is, too!

It’s not easy…

But he’s a trier and a doer – so he perseveres!

He’s a good helper to have around!
