Warm & Toasty Trio for Facebook Live

Christmas cards and gift card holder created with the Warm & Toasty stamp set. #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Heartwarming Hugs, #Handmade Cards

This trio of projects was designed with the Warm & Toasty stamp set and Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.  I created them live during my weekly Facebook Live presentation last night.  If you missed it, you can watch the replay here.

I stamped the reindeer in Memento Ink and colored it with our Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The window on the card front is cropped out with the Garden Gateway Dies.  Next, I embossed with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.  You can create any color rhinestones by coloring Stampin’ Up’s clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels with our Stampin’ Blends Markers.  For this project, I used Dark Poppy Parade.

As always, I carry some of the elements over to the inside of the card.

Next, I created another Christmas card.

This card has fewer layers for those of you that want a lighter card.

More Ideas for your Embossing Folders

Great tips on how to get more mileage out of your embossing folders. #Prized Peony, #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Thank You Card, #Gift Box

During my Facebook Live today, I will demonstrate more ideas for your embossing folders.  I used the Prized Peony Bundle for this trio of projects with Poppy Parade, Mossy Meadow, and Basic Black.  I added Gold for a touch of elegance.  Poppy Parade and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers were used to color the images.

For both cards, I not only used the embossing folder on the outside, as well as the inside of the cards.  I think the extra detail makes a difference on the finished card.

I sprinkled Gold Glittered Enamel Dots on all of the projects.
