This week I’m playing with all my wonderful Stampin’ Up! punches, trying to figure out how to make the most of them while I’m making Holiday Cards. Back in October I made a video about how to use Stampin’ Up!’s punches as stencils to make lovely cards. But durned if I didn’t neglect to post the card here for you to see!
For this card, I used the Jumbo Snowflake Punch and Whisper White Craft Ink to stencil the design on the card. I finished up with some dots of White Gel Pen, an embossed greeting from Four the Holidays Stamp Set from the 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog, and a piece of Whisper White Organza to wrap everything up nicely!
Here’s another card that I made using the same stenciling technique. But I also punched a Snowflake from Real Red Card Stock. The greeting comes from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set, and the paper is from the Designer Series Paper set Christmas Cocoa Specialty, also from the Holiday Mini Catalog.
To help you make your own Handmade Christmas Cards, I’ve made a video tutorial about this technique! I hope you enjoy it.
Even though I’m just now posting these on my blog, those of you on my mailing list were treated to these samples – and more! – a lot earlier in the season. It’s not too late to sign up for my newsletter, with my detailed instructions for making these and lots of other Holiday Cards! Add your name to my mailing list now and I’ll get last week’s newsletter – with some other fun uses for punches – out to you right away!
