Ornamental Pine Christmas Wishes & New Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up!

I’m posting a bit early this morning as I’ll be out at school doing some volunteering for most of the day today.  I will try to check my messages a few times throughout the day, but I may not be able to respond as quickly as I usually do.  :)

I used the Ornamental Pine stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share today.

Ornamental Pine - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by My Favorite Things MFTWSC193.

Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 2.27.59 PM

I started by adhering a panel of DSP from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack to a Whisper White panel with SNAIL, then to a Garden Green card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Ornamental Pine 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I colored the branch image from the Ornamental Pine stamp set with my Garden Green and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock.

Ornamental Pine 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I created a little mask for the ornament hook by cutting a thin strip from a sticky note.  I wanted it looked like part of the hook went behind the branch when I placed the mask over the branch, then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the hook image from the Ornamental Pine stamp set in VersaMark Ink over the branch.  I sprinkled the hook image with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.

Ornamental Pine 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig again to line up and stamp the ornament image in VersaMark ink under the hook.  I sprinkled the image with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it, then colored the white space with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.  ***Quick tip:  When coloring over an embossed image, blot the excess ink from the embossed part of the image with a towel to avoid smearing it.

I cut the image out with one of the Circles Collection Framelits Dies, then layered it over a circle that I’d cut from Garden Green card stock.  I adhered the layered circles to the card front with SNAIL.

Ornamental Pine 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the Ornamental Pine stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White strip and I adhered it to a strip of Garden Green card stock with SNAIL.  I slid the ends of the sentiment strip through the Banner Punch and punched them, then adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I slid a strip of Trim the Tree DSP through the opposite end of the Banner Punch and punched it t create the little arrow of paper.  I adhered the punched DSP strip to the card front with SNAIL, then tied Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine through a Gold Basic Metal Button and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

Ornamental Pine 5 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped sentiment from the Ornamental Pine stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Whisper White panel, then adhered a strip of Trim the Tree DSP to complete the inside of the card.
