Detailed Deer Christmas card with Woodland Embossing Folder

 I thought you might like to see a Christmas card idea I took to Orlando to swap with other Stampin' UP! demonstrators at our 2018 OnStage event!!

I used the Stampin' Up! Detailed Deer framelit with Copper Foil paper, the Woodland Embossing folder in the background, Glimmer Paper, shimmer paint, and more!

I love the deer die cut from the copper foil paper... it's really the focal point of the card!

You can make these cards!!  All supplies are available in my online store, just click ANY product photo at the bottom of my blog post! Thank you!

The Woodland Embossing folder from Stampin' UP! creates the perfect background for this card!! The subtle tree trunks in the background were embossed with my Big Shot then I spritzed them with Frost White Shimmer Paint... scroll down a little to see more about that!

The greeting is stamped with Merry Merlot ink from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set on a Stitched Label framelit die cut and decorated with the Frosted & Clear epoxy droplets.

When I make multiple cards, I always cut, embossed, die cut, score and stamp all the layers first, gather all my supplies, then make all the cards.. here are my swap card supplies:

TIP!  Be sure to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue  when adhering your embossed images to your handmade cards.. it holds the layers together much better than dry adhesives.   I used it also when adhering the glimmer paper "snow" to the embossed image.

To create the Glimmer paper snow, I cut a 3" x 4" pieces of glimmer paper then used my paper snips to cut a wavy line down the middle, and that produced TWO pieces of snowy hills.  :)

Home from OnStage in Orlando!

Hi everyone!

I hope you had fun following along on my Facebook page while I posted our adventures in Orlando last week!!

I gathered with about 6,000 other amazing Stampin' UP! demonstrators in Orlando to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the company, and we had a wonderful time!  Well, except for the heat... when it's "feel like 93 degrees" and 80% humidity, that's not my kind of weather.

About 6o of the demonstrators on my Luv 2 Stamp Group team joined us in Orlando, and about 1/2 were in attendance for our Meet & Greet, card swap and team photo!  Here we are!

It was great to spend time with so many amazing people from our team from all over the US! 

Stampin' UP! was so gracious to recognize hundreds of demonstrators for all levels of accomplishments in so many ways.  It was fun to walk on stage, to see our name in print, to stand and wave, to hear the applause and receive congrats from fellow demonstrators.

I found my name on the board for being #4 in the entire company for the past year!

There are so many fun perks of attending a Stampin' Up! OnStage event.. but ONE of my favorites is receiving the new catalogs early!

We got the new 2019 Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration catalogs already!  Mine are well loved from going through them about a million times already and making lots of notes!

I'll be at the Stampin' Up! OnStage Event!

It used to be called "convention", and now it's called OnStage, but no matter what you call it, it will be 4 days of fun, friends, seeing all the new Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration merchandise, learning new tips and techniques, taking hundreds of photos of ideas and samples...  I'm getting goosebumps typing this!! :)  

 

 I found this image of the Orlando Convention Center on Trip Advisor and used it with their permission.  This is, I believe, the largest convention center in America.  That's where I'll be this week... I wonder how many steps I'll get in each day!! :)
