We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Slimline Cards

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to this month's team blog hop featuring Slimline Cards.  These have been a wildly popular card, cut to a different size... slim and long, fitting into a business size envelope.  My card features the Sweet Gingerbread Bundle from the fall/holiday catalog.  

LB4QH7S0

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Mint Macaron CS cut 8 x 9-1/4 and scored at 4" on the 8" side
  • Basic White CS layer is 4 x 9
  • Basic White 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 (quarter sheet for houses, roofs, and wreaths)
  • White Glimmer paper 4 x 6
  • Crumb Cake CS 1 x 6 for fence and pebble stones
  • Old Olive CS 4 x 5 to die cut 8 trees

With the wavy die, cut the White Glimmer paper into 3 sections.  Make the bottom the longest.  When cutting the other two pieces, shift the wavy die so they will be different when layering them onto the Basic White layer.  

On the quarter sheet of white, stamp 2 houses in Crumb Cake ink (stamp off on scrap paper first for the houses).  Also in Crumb Cake is the door, windows and door outline, and the scallop roof.  Using Real Red and Old Olive markers, color and stamp two wreaths.  Stamp the windows in So Saffron. Die cut all pieces, adhering the scallop roof and wreath to each house.

Assembly all pieces, tucking the top house and some of the trees behind the snow drifts. 

Add a rhinestone to the doors for knobs. 

Stamp the bubble stamp (I used the reverse side of the side) in Mint Macaron ink, stamping off first.  Then stamped the words in same color, not stamped off.

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Fall Is In The Air

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Thank you for joining us for this month's Team Blog Hop!

I think I say this each year... Fall is my favorite season!  The fresh, crisp air and beautiful colors.  Funny, even though it means plants, flowers, and trees are losing their foliage and dying out for the year, it is more rejuvenating to me than spring. 

I'm excited to share my fall project with you, which is a creative fold card, featuring the Hello Harvest Bundle and Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper. 

Be sure to read to the end for 2 (two) incredible September deals happening now!

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Color Coach Challenge

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to our We BEE Stamping Blog Hop!

This month's theme is Color Coach Challenge.  What is a color coach?  Well, it is a color chart that Stampin' Up! provides with different combinations of color we normally would not think of.  Seeing as the 2022-2024 In-Colors are fresh an new, I chose to use the Sweet Sorbet coach and went with the combination of Calypso Coral and Balmy Blue.  Here is what the coach looks like, and we have them for all the colors!  Very cool tool to have and a perk of a demonstrator.
