Scenscational Blog Hop Recap

Thanks for visiting my blog and those of my friends this weekend. The greatest things about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the friendships and positive relationships built. Today, I want to share a couple of details and close-ups of the projects from this weekend as well as give a few tips on the card.
I mentioned that I bought these ornaments last year at a local craft store. I think they might still be there. I've been trying to use stuff from my stash of junk. I found that embossing worked best. I used Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, and Gold Embossing powder. I then added some hand detail with the new Stampin' Dazzle marker in silver (page 19 of the Holiday Catalog). For that bow, I just wrapped around my C clear block about 10 times, pulled the the stack off and then tied it in the middle. I pulled the petals of the bow out so it would be fluffy. I added the string bow of the Sweater Trim for contrasting color. I think that's it. Any questions?

The candle close-up:
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Except that I ran out of cinnamon sticks two away from finishing, so rolled up some Chocolate Chip to look like sticks so no one would notice. Did you?

The card:
Notice the paper piercing? I didn't like it, so didn't do it on cards I swapped or encourage my swappers to do it, but it's there if you like that sort of thing.

Stamps: Scensational Season, Petite Pairs
Paper: Early Espresso, Real Red, Crumb Cake, and Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot, Holiday Collection Framelits Dies, Finishing Touches Edgelits, Cherry Cobbler Bakers's Twine, 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon

Here's how I did it:

1. Stamp image in centerish top of your Crumb Cake cardstock.

2. Place 2" x 5 1/4" piece of Designer Paper where you want it to rest on the finished card. DO NOT ADHERE IT YET.

3. Place Framelit around the image. Use Post-it note to stick into place.

4. Run through Big Shot. Be careful to not move the note!

5. Take the note and the Framelit off your paper revealing a cut out.

6. Adhere the scallop strip to the right side of your Designer Series Paper. Trim the head space and leg space as I did. Try to continue the lines as if you cut it out with a cookie cutter.

7. Adhere Designer Series Paper to card front and finish the card as you like.

 Happy Stamping!
