Stamp-a-Stack Part 2

Here is the second installment of the cards from the recent Stamp-a-Stack class. I always like a nice tree / sparkly snow hill card, and I had yet to use the Pennant Parade tree option.

Inspired by a card by Linda Creech.

Stamps: Pennant Parade, Word Play; Paper: Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White; Ink: Pool Party, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke; Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Petite Pennant builder punch, 1-3/4" Circle punch, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Stars #2 die, Circles #2 die, Scallop Square die, Big Shot.

I love the classic look of the Welcome Home set, and 'stamperjen0' on SCS made an excellent vintage-type card with it. Here's a CASE.

I switched up a few things, but the layout is the same. Everything is sponged lightly to age it. Here's a tip... using a larger ball stylus, rub the inside of the flower punch-out over a piercing mat. This will cause the flower to curl up nicely and add dimension.

Stamps: Welcome Home, Petite Pairs; Paper: Real Red, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP; Ink: Crumb Cake, Black Stazon; Accessories: Dotted Ribbon border punch, Circle punches, Itty Bitty punch pack, Sponge, Vanilla Velvet ribbon, Rhinestone jewels, Snow Burst embossing folder, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

This is a reworking of an earlier reject card. The Frostwood Lodge suite is popular, so I wanted to share it with the ladies.

Here I embossed the background with the Northern Flurry embossing folder and used Dazzling Details on the snow. Here's a close up of the sparkle and subtle addition of color with a blender pen.

Stamps: Christmas Lodge, Christmas Greetings; Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, Frostwood Lodge DSP; Ink: Always Artichoke, Stazon; Accessories: Blender pen, Dazzling Details, Cherry Cobbler quilted satin ribbon, Northern Flurry embossing folder, Top Note die, Petal Cone die, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm sitting here looking at the last of my day's email, back hurting after teaching a 3-hour mini album class. Couldn't decided whether to even think about my next card class or not. Along came your email full of Inspiration. Thanks for lifting my spirits by sharing. Beautiful work as always, always inspring!

These cards are so very pretty, Heidi! Love the tip for the flower. I usually use the tip of a bone folder, but it's not easy with an object that small.
