========================================================================
We believe this may be some people's favorite day. We are not only introducing Happy Christmas which is sure to be a go-to for the holidays (and works seamlessly with other stamps from this release and also from our August Release in particular) plus our latest in The Big, the Bold series: The Big, the Bold and the Merry, but cutaways (aka dies) as well. :-)

We are beginning the cutaways in a limited way with The Big, the Bold and the Merry Cutaways, The Big, the Bold and the Happy Cutaways, The Big, the Bold and Blessings Cutaways and The Big, the Bold and Seasons Cutaways.  The word dies are almost exactly the same size as their counterpoint big word stamps so they work in conjunction with the little words and the big words, rather than sticker/outline sized.

Julie

We have a inspiration filled day for you all, and I can't wait for you to see all of the goodness these fabulously talented ladies have been creating.  I even heard from one of our winnie & walter family members, Christiana, and she said that her socks were actually "knocked off"!  hee hee!!!  Well, I just have to say, Christiana, hang on.... it keeps getting BETTER!

I'm in a shimmery, glittery and sparkly mood lately, so prepare yourselves to be sparkled!  LOL

Card No. 1

jmog_joytotheworld_oct2014_day3


Joy to the World!  Yes, indeed!  I really wanted to use the baby Jesus stamp today and wanted to keep the card layout very simple.  I stamped the Jesus, halo and joy to the world sentiment from Happy Christmas, and embossed with one of my absolute favorite embossing powders -  Egyptian Gold from JudiKins.  I love that the halo stamp is separate in this set because you could opt to stamp the baby in one color and add the halo in another, plus adjust the spacing to suit your needs.

jmog_joytotheworld2_oct2014_day3


Davis (my husband) and I thought the white panel just wasn't enough on this kraft card base alone (it was larger before) so I trimmed it to the current size, and then added another panel behind to create a frame. I simply added versamark ink direct to paper and embossed with the same embossing powder, and cut the new mat to frame the image.  The white panel is popped up to set it off.  In this picture, you can also see that the white panel has a delicate shimmer too!.  That is my Pearl glimmer mist that I sprayed on, but used a brush to get an even coverage, rather than a "sprayed" look.  Soft and subtle.  I love the combination of kraft, white and gold and I think it fits this card perfectly!

Card No. 2

jmog_christmas-blessings_oct2014_day3


I love the soft pale look of evergreen bough distress ink and thought it would make a pretty backdrop for this winter card.  First, I did some watercolor with the evergreen bough on a panel of bristol paper and dried with a heat tool because, well,  I don't like to wait. LOL  I stamped the snowflake from The Big, the Bold and Seasons set, plus the word "christmas" from The Big, the Bold and the Merry set and embossed in silver.  For the snowflake, I cut one of the snowflake designs from the Digital Elements Scenery: Big Bang Flurries, and then I sprayed a generous amount of Mister Huey's Shine on it, pat it dry and then blasted it with the heat tool.  Good thing it didn't melt!  *wink*

jmog_christmas-blessings2_oct2014_day3


I used the same treatment on "blessings", cut using one of our NEW dies - The Big, the Bold and Blessings Cutaways!  I glued it down with my two way glue pen to get into all of those fine detailed areas.  The snowflake is popped up with one foam tape in the center to float above the silver snowflakes.  I couldn't resist adding a few 4mm Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  *sigh*  See!  What did I tell you?  Shimmery, glittery and sparkly!

Get ready - Shay, our "Talented" design team and our lovely special guests continue to sparkle too!

Card No. 1

shay_day3_1

Let me tell you something pretty sweet about Happy Christmas: it has some images that coordinate with This Awesome House and A Tree for All Seasons (and even Moonlight).  I took advantage of the Santa, sleigh and reindeer from Happy Christmas all sized for This Awesome House and got creating!

On a piece of watercolor paper, I stamped the house from This Awesome House in Versamark and embossed in white.  Using a paint brush and watered down tumbled glass and weathered wood Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger I got to painting in the house.  With layers of watered down tumbled glass, weathered wood, broken china and chipped sapphire Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger I painted in the sky. With a mix of calico shine Mister Huey's Color Mist by Studio Calico along with tumbled glass and weathered wood I painted in some subtle snowdrifts under the house.

Next, I did something I have been wanting to do and die cut "joy" twice from silver cardstock with The Big, the Bold and the Merry Cutaways.  Oh, I can't explain the exhilaration to die cut with our own dies!  And just so you know I tested them with felt and it works well!  I stacked the die cuts together for more dimension.  On vellum in Versamark I stamped "comfort" and "&" from the little words found in The Big, the Bold and the Merry stamp set (there are tons of little words that will allow lots of customization of holiday sentiments) and embossed it in white before I cut them into little rectangles.  Last I sprayed some calico shine Mister Huey's Color Mist by Studio Calico through the Scenery: Big Bang Classic Star Creative Screenings to add some shimmer and interest to the background.

For a better look at the shimmer:

Card No. 2

shay_day3_2

I wanted to use the large poinsettia in the Happy Christmas set.  That was the whole impetus of this card.  From there big shocker...more watercoloring.  Using watered down festive berries Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger I painted in the poinsettia and used calico shine Mister Huey's Color Mist by Studio Calico with weathered wood for the leaves.  I fussy cut them out and added some more shimmer to the flowers with clear Wink of Stella.

For the background I pulled out a new best friend of mine: Scenery: Persuasion Script Creative Screenings and some calico shine (yes, I love this stuff!) and Glimmer Mists in patina and silver. I only sprayed a little of the patina and added some drops as well.  I made sure to keep the creative screenings in place as I ran it through my Cuttlebug and embossed it.  Some tips: place a paper towel over your wet stencil and paper to soak up any excess color and embossing works really well when the paper is still damp.


On white cardstock I stamped the wreath from Happy Christmas and embossed it with silver (I feel like an alchemist whenever I emboss with silver...I never tire of the transformation).  I fussy cut around the outside edge of the wreath.  I stamped the sentiment from Happy Christmas and embossed that in silver too.  I had to (it's a compulsion) use more dies so I cut out "winter" from The Big, the Bold and Seasons Cutaways from white cardstock and I only attached the bottom of the die to the wreath for dimension.  I adhered the poinsettias to the wreath and attached all that to the embossed panel which I adhered to a white cardbase. Final touch are 4mm marshmallow sequins from Pretty Pink Posh (love, love).

Voila!  Some watercoloring + creative screenings embossing + die cutting going on with this card.

We’re so glad you are back for more w&w goodies!  Today, my cards are in the great outdoors, and both at night.  Did I mention how much I love a pretty navy blue?  Well, today I’m using shades of Broken China, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire *sigh* and Lapis Blue (an Ancient Page color close to sapphire). 

Card No. 1

In my Christmas card past, I was intrigued with the one layer cards that were popular where you stamp and emboss an image in white, and then you color around it to make it pop!  I just had to try it with our new giant pine tree from Winter Woodland.

jmog_peace_oct2014_day2

If you haven’t tried this technique before, prepare to be addicted!  I started with some Eclipse masking tape to section off my white card base and then, I stamped and embossed the tree in white.  Then, I gathered my distress inks and added color with an ink blending tool.  I stamped three sizes of snowflakes from Scenery: Big Bang Flurries scattered around using Stampin’ Up! Whisper White pigment ink.  For a few smaller bits of snow, I used my pearl glimmer mist nozzle to flick a few more specks of shimmer.  After removing the tape, you get your lovely image just floating on the card.  I love that feeling after removing the mask, don’t you?  Last but not least, I stamped the new peace sentiment from The Big, the Bold and the Merry in Lapis Blue.  Yes, it made me very happy!  *wink*

Card No. 2

jmog_seasonsgreetings_oct2014_day2


On this card, I really wanted to showcase the Mini Scenery: Into the Woods, but opted to use the Digital Elements version that is already sized perfectly for a 4.25 x 5.5 card.  I just opened the png file in my Silhouette cutting software and let it do all of the work.  Gotta love it!   The cut piece has strips of foam tape underneath to give it added dimension over another blue inked panel.  This time, I have Wink of Stella brushed at the top, and then I used a wet paint brush and pulled the sparkle from the top to the bottom to cast a subtle shimmer to the background.  The sentiment from Winter Woodland is stamped and embossed on a strip of vellum and adhered to the die cut.  Last but not least, I have the stag stamped on its coordinating Digital Element precut stamp shape rather than doing a fussy cut. Yea!

I hope you are ready to be blown away with today’s inspiration.  Shay, the Talent and our special guests have some fabulous projects to share.  Keep on scrolling!

Shay

Wow, Julie's beautiful cards are enchanting!  Navy is one of my favorites for any time of year and especially for the holidays!

I went with both non traditional and traditional color schemes with my cards.


Card No. 1

shay_day2_1

I am really thrilled with these 3x4 Mini Scenery stamp sets.  They can be used as backgrounds, focal points on a card, on tags, in scrapbooking and pocket memory keeping to name a few things.

I stamped the Mini Scenery: Into the Woods in black on a piece of grey cardstock and then pulled out my...white crayon.  People I have boxes of crayons (the big ones) as they were my friends growing up (don't tell anyone but I have coloring books too) and I still use them on occasion.  I colored in the bark of the tree and around the image with the white crayon.  Next I stamped one of the blocks of flurries from Scenery: Big Bang Flurry around the top of the panel in Versamark.  I also stamped the smallest matching flurry over the trees in Versamark and heat embossed it in white.  I stamped the sentiment from Winter Woodland in Versamark and heat embossed it in white.

You will note I used crayon and then heat embossed so there was obviously a little melting happening so I went over the trees a bit more with the crayon.

I stamped the plump cute cardinal from Winter Woodland in fired brick Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger on watercolor paper and cut it out and attached it to the panel.

This may be a card that looks a bit better in person. lol  Still I hope you will see that these stamps are pretty awesome. :-)

Card No. 2

shay_day2_2

My next card is all about Winter Woodland...what a stamp set!  I stamped the pine around and around in evergreen bough (perfect color!) Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger, I then overstamped with the pine stamp in Versamark and heat embossed in white.  I filled in some more space with the evergreen bough with the pine stamp.  Then I stamped the berries in Versamark and heat embossed it with rouge Zing! embossing powder.  I stamped the large pine cone twice and the little pine cone once with Versamark and embossed it with bronze embossing powder and then cut them out.  Before adhering the pine cones I added a nest of gold thread.

On a strip of white card stock with a tail cut out on one end, I stamped "merry christmas" from Winter Woodland in white embossing powder and then I colored in the banner with festive berries Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger.  I attached the banner with foam dimensional adhesive.

I’m so very excited that we finally get to share this release with all of you!  It feels like it has been a long wait, and we hope you think it was well worth it!  Today I have a couple of cards to share.  The first is a fun card with our little friend….Mr. Gingerbread Man!

Card No. 1

jmog_be-merry_octrelease

I stamped our little guy from Eat Drink Gingerbread Man three times and water colored him with distress inks. The boys on the sides are glued flat, and the one in the middle is popped up.  I also used the Scenery: Classic Diagonal Creative Screenings to create this peppermint stripe in brown, and added the lines of red and green for accent, and then embossed them with some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Embossing Powders (Candy Cane Red Gold and Fiddlehead Fern Green). I created a larger strip, and then cut it down into thin strips to make the top and bottom border.  You are going to LOVE the new Creative Screenings!!! I can't wait for you to see them all!

I love the sentiment in this set, and thought I would use only the BE MERRY since it has that very sweet font.  I used some washi to cover over the other words in the stamp and then inked it up with Versamark.  After peeling the tape off, I stamped it and then embossed with the same red ep.  For a final touch, I stamped the gumdrops in Stampin’ Up! Iridescent Ice ep so that it would have a subtle white shimmer similar to sugar, and then used a marker to color over the gum drops.  The reds are flat and the greens are popped.  Too Fun!

Card No. 2

jmog_merry-ornament_octrelease


My second card has a lot of shimmer and elegance.  The card base is one of my faves – Night Sky shimmer cardstock by Papertrey Ink. I love the weight of this paper and the navy shimmer is divine!  It makes a wonderful backdrop to the silver elements.  First, the merry was die cut using the brand new The Big, the Bold and the Merry Cutaways dies. You will get to hear more about these little beauties later this week.  I inked a piece of cardstock with Versamark and then embossed it with Aegean Silver ep from Judi-Kins, and then ran the die through my cuttlebug.  LOVE IT!

The “and bright” are stamped with words from The Big, the Bold and the Merry stamp set and embossed with the same ep.  Finally, the vellum ornament was so fun to design.  I stamped and embossed Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Zone on vellum and die cut with a circle, and added some silver glitter tape cut for the top of the ornament.  The silver thread – UGH – it looks good now, but it is not my favorite thread.  It gave me a workout the other night.  But, it was all worth it.  Blue and silver, with a touch of Sparkling Clear sequins (4 and 6mm) from Pretty Pink Posh.  What’s not to love?  And, there is so much more to see below from Shay, the Talent, and our special guests!  Enjoy!!!

Shay


I have to say I really love Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Zone.  In fact my sister who is notoriously particular (she doesn't like stars for instance...yeah stars) actually loves that stamp set.  Both of my cards today feature Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Zone.

Card No. 1

shay_day1_1a

I wanted to emboss in white Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Zone so I did just that on a piece of watercolor paper by Tim Holtz from Ranger.  Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger in fired brick spritzed with water to paint in the panel.  Then I used the Scenery: Big Bang Classic Star Creative Screenings with calico shine Mister Huey's Color Mists by Studio Calico to add some shimmery stars over the whole panel.

shay_day1_1b

I embossed the sentiment from Eat Drink Gingerbread Man in silver on a strip of vellum and also stamped it in pale tomato Hero Arts Mid-Tone Shadow Ink on a piece of white cardstock and I punched out the "and" with a 3/4" inch circle punch.  I wrapped the vellum around the peppermint panel and also wrapped some grey and white baker's twine too.  I adhered the panel to a white card base with foam dimensional adhesive.  Last are some 4mm marshmallow sequins (perfect name!) from Pretty Pink Posh.

Card No. 2

When I saw Julie's second card I had to laugh as we seemed to be of one mind...just wait until you see my card. Any resemblance was completely unplanned. :-)

shay_day1_2a

I think the gingerbread man in Eat Drink Gingerbread Man is pretty spiffy, charming and cute so I *had* to use him and more than once.  I embossed him 3 times in white on a piece of watercolor paper and got down to watercoloring him in with antique linen, brushed corduroy and walnut stain Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger with a little calico shine Mister Huey's Color Mists by Studio Calico mixed in.  I added some enamel dot by My Mind's Eye to the little gingerbread men.

For the background of my card I stamped Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Zone two times in pale tomato Hero Arts Mid-Tone Shadow Ink.  I distressed the edges of the peppermint panel.

On a strip of white cardstock I stamped and embossed in gold "be merry" from the sentiment from Eat Drink Gingerbread Man.


I attached the gingerbread men with foam dimensional adhesive, added the gold confetti from Pretty Pink Posh and adhered it to a layer of blue cardstock before added it to a white card base.

This card reminds me of Candy Land which makes me pretty happy as I always enjoyed that game when I was a little.  I hope these stamps and Creative Screenings will inspire you to play.
