I’m participating in another blog hop with The Crafty Medic, and today we’re celebrating Christmas in July!

The new August to December Mini Catalogue goes live on August 4th, so it’s a perfect time to take a peek at all the wonderful holiday goodness that’s headed our way next month. (And of course, we lucky demonstrators can order from this catalogue already!)

I was so happy to see that the beautiful Christmas Gleaming bundle, along with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper, is returning this year. This was one of my top picks from last year’s holiday catalogue, and Stampin’ Up! has brought it back for us to enjoy again! The copper foil accents in the Brightly Gleaming paper are absolutely stunning, and it’s so quick and easy to put a card together with the stamp set and co-ordinating punches.

To show off more of this gorgeous paper, I put together a scrappy strips card as well. This big bold Christmas Greetings stamp is now retired, unfortunately, but it’s still a favourite in my craft room! I think the sentiment from Winter Woods stamp set would also look really good here.

Another thing I love about the Brightly Gleaming paper is that you could use it all year round! Here, I’ve used the less-sparkly side of the paper to make a masculine birthday card. Once I started playing with this paper, I couldn’t stop!

I hope you’ll follow the link below to see the other Christmas projects, and get excited about what’s coming in just ten more days!! (But who’s counting!!)

And remember, you have a few more days to get in on Bonus Days. For every $60 you spend in July (before tax and shipping), you’ll earn a $6 coupon to use in August – when you’ll be able to order from the annual catalogue AND the new August-December mini! I’ll be placing an order this coming Monday (July 27), so if you need anything be sure to contact me before then, or shop online and use hostess code H2HUA3ET.

Earlier this week I posted a card made with the painters tape technique and promised I’d post a video on how to do this fun, easy technique. It creates a really gorgeous and unique background for your cards! In addition to painters tape, you’ll need 2-4 inkpads, a large graphic stamp, and the following cardstock:

Card base: 5.5 x 8.5”
Mat layer: 3-5/8 x 4-7/8”
White: 3-3/8 x 4-5/8”

I’m participating in another blog hop with The Crafty Medic, and this time it’s a Colour Challenge! I was quite inspired when I saw the announcement of “grayscale” and I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to play with the painter’s tape technique.

I hope you’ll follow the link to see the other grayscale projects … and you can even vote for your favourite projects!

I’ve been seeing some cards made with the Split Card technique recently and I think it’s pretty cool, so I tried it out! This technique works best with large, graphic stamps that you can layer up to create two cards at once.

Start with a piece of cardstock measuring 8 x 5.25″. Make light pencil marks on the cardstock at 4″ so you can see where the centre is. For this card I used Good Morning Magnolia and the coordinating Magnolia Memory dies, so I cut myself two masks with the large magnolia die before beginning to stamp.

Stamp your images down the centre of your cardstock, using the masks as necessary as you go so that you can create overlapping images. (For more on masking, see video here.)

Continue stamping to fill the centre of your cardstock, from top to bottom.

Colour your images if desired. Then, cut your cardstock down the centre at 4″.

Now you have two beautiful cardfronts (size 4 x 5.25″). Add a sentiment and finish your cards as desired.

Here are some more cards I made with the same technique. It was fun to play with different stamps and sentiments, and I especially enjoyed using one card front to create a vertical and one to create a horizontal card.

Remember that Bonus Days are on now! For every $60 you spend in July(before tax and shipping), you’ll earn a $6 coupon to use in August. What a great deal! Check out the product list below for this project and be sure to shop strategically (in $60 increments) to maximize your coupons. 😀
