A simple Stampin' Up! Wishes and Wonder Christmas bundle Christmas card and all five made with this bundle, in one post.

Hey stampers.

Here's the last of the five of the Stampin' Up! Wishes and Wonder bundle Christmas cards I have made for Christmas 2020. Time to move onto some other suites. Before I do that, I wanted to showcase all five of the cards I have made with this bundle again. Let's start with today's card.

Create this Stampin Up Wishes and Wonder bundle Christmas card with easy instructions. Also features 'Tis the Season DSP. 2020 Christmas card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the 'Tis the Season Designer Series Paper for this card. This paper is fabulous as it coordinates with both Real Red and Cherry Cobbler for the reds, and with both Garden Green and Shaded Spruce for the greens. I really like the monotone small patterned designs too. I have used the Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce designs on this card. The paper pack is 6x6" and comes with 48 sheets (4 each of 12 double sided designs).

To make this card you need the following pieces of Designer Series Paper:

  • 10.3cm x 14.5cm (attaches to the base layer)
  • 7cm x 11cm and adhered to a mat of cardstock 7.2cm x 11.2cm - this is the Shaded Spruce piece on my card.
  • 9cm x 2.5cm and adhered to a mat of cardstock 9.2cm x 2.7cm - this is the Cherry Cobbler piece under the sentiment.

The piece for the sentiment is 1.9cm (3/4") and I cut banners in the end using the new Banners Pick a Punch which is designed to cut banners both ways in strips of cardstock 1/2", 3/4" and 1".

The Reindeer (cut in Brass Foil Cardstock) and Shaded Spruce stitched shape are both cut from the North Pole Wonder Dies which are a part of this bundle. I finished the card off with some looped gold edged ribbon (from the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo pack) and some gilded gems.

Water Lifting Stamping Technique using Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird Stamp Set

Hello stamping friends. 

Today I have a technique card for you. I love how this one turned out, especially with all that texture behind the stamped panel. The stamp set featured today is the Free as a Bird stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Free as a Bird stamp set with waterlifting technique. 2020 card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

 

Water Lifting Technique Instructions

I think this technique is officially called water lifting, but I also like to also refer to it as reverse watercolour, as instead of adding colour with our Water Painter Pens, we are removing it.

Here's how I created the stamped panel:

  1. I used a sponge brayer and a Misty Moonlight ink pad to create an ombre effect on the thick Whisper White cardstock I had cut with the Stitched Nested Framelits.
  2. I then stamped my image from the Stampin' Up! Free as a Bird stamp set in Jet Black Stazon over the brayered ink.
  3. The Stampin' Up! Classic Ink Pads are really reactive to water, so when you paint over the image with a Water Painter, it lifts the ink in that spot. I just kept on doing this in areas I wanted to lighten.

I have a video showing this technique. It features another card, but the technique is exactly the same.

I really love the edge effect you get with the diet cut Stitched Nested Shapes. They are a really versatile die set.

Here's a closer look at the dies:

Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.I wanted to create lots of texture on this card, so I used the Subtles 3D embossing Folder on the Cumb Cake layer, and then added several different trims and embellishments under the stamped shape. You can link to all of these products in my online store, using the links at the end of the post. Here's what I have used:

  1. A strip of Misty Moonlight patterned DSP from the Flowers For Every Season paper pack
  2. A strip of Misty Moonlight Twill ribbon
  3. Two strips of Very Vanilla scalloped lace trim
  4. Some looped Braided Linen Trim
  5. Some wooden leaves from the In Good Taste Elements (love these for neutral embellishment and texture)

You can view a video showing how I attach looped ribbons to create texture on my projects HERE.
