Flourish Filigree Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! 

Here's a fast Holiday card idea you can create in minutes.  Using a large, focal-point stamp like the stamps in Flourish Filigree quickly creates a focal point.  Then simply add a sentiment and a bow and you're done!  I wanted to compliment the silver thread running through the reversible ribbon, so I Gold embossed one of the sentiments from the Flourish Filigree Snowfall Thinlits on White Vellum Cardstock.         


The basecard for this Holiday card is Thick Whisper White.  Then a layer of Merry Merlot, and then a layer of Whisper White.  

The filigree image is stamped in Merry Merlot ink.

Then I selected the "Sending Thankful Thoughts" stamp from the Stampin' Up! Flourish Filigree stamp set to heat emboss on a layer of Vellum Cardstock.  I dusted the vellum with my Embossing Buddy, inked my sentiment in Versamark, and stamped the sentiment.  Then I covered the wet sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat Tool.  Tip:  When heat embossing vellum, take care not to burn your vellum.  I use  a wooden clothes pin or a tweezers to hold my paper while heat setting the embossing powder.  I also start heating from the back side of the vellum and keep the Heat Gun moving until the embossing powder is almost set.  Then I finish heating on the front side for just a moment.

Since glue dots or glue show through vellum, I rolled my glue dots and placed one behind the letter T and another behind the letter L in the sentiment.  I also added Gold Faceted Gems to each end of the vellum sentiment strip and hid a Mini Glue Dot under each of the Faceted Gems.  

The Merry Merlot ribbon ties easily to create beautiful bows for the upper, left corner of the card. 

Take a look at other sets and dies available in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  Order your holiday stamp sets and dies soon so you'll have them in plenty of time to create your handmade holiday cards.

Is Your Wish List Longer than your Arm?  

How would you like to purchase your Wish List for 20% off?  Well, that's one of the main reasons stampers join Stampin' Up.   I'm also a fan of being able to purchase early release products with plenty of time to make the most of them around the Fall and Holiday Seasons.  Like the upcoming Snowflake Showcase, which demonstrators can purchase now, but customers won't be able to get their hands on this wonderful suite of products until November 1. However, if you sign up now, you can order the Snowflake Showcase products as part of your stater kit. 

In addition to 20% off everything in the current catalogs, Stampin' Up! offers promotional items and clearance rack items.  When they do, wouldn't you like to add even more to your savings by using your Demonstrator discount of 20%?  Start saving right away by purchasing $125 worth of merchandise for $99 when you sign up.  Then place the rest of your Wish List as your first demonstrator order and save 20% on your entire Wish List.  I would love to have you join my team!  Click here for more information about joining the fun and becoming a Hobby Demonstrator.
