I've had this ready to post for a while and found that I did not publish it! This is the fourth "Frosted Medallions" card I've made to share. A 4 1/2" x 41/2" square card in Rich Razzleberry and gold embossing.
My one regret about this card is that when I sponged Rich Razzlebery ink (ink resist technique) to darken behind the gold heat embossed medallions, the ink dulled the shiny gold. I guess not all colours work well in the ink resist technique.
You know how I like layers, they just seem to add a little something extra to the look of cards. Since this is a monochromatic card, the technique adds even more. The Sweet Sugarplum sparkly ribbon complements the Rich Razzleberry very well, too.
This would make a great note card, all occasion card, large tag on a large gift, and even a subtle contemporary Christmas card.
Happy stamping everyone!

Welcome from Mi Ran's blog! Hope that you having fun so far hopping from inspiration to inspirational idea. Another month has gone by and it's time for our Seashore Stampers Blog Hop. Today we are sharing Christmas, or 2016 Holiday Catalogue ideas. I chose to go with the "Forever Evergreen" stamp set. This stamp set also coordinates with the "Forever Evergreen Project Kit". but I made a card with it.
I love the little stars stamped in the background. They were off-stamped 2 and three times, as were some of the pine twigs at the top pf the card.
The ornaments and pine cones are heat embossed in copper, and fussy cut out.
The side view below shows how I layered with the dimensionals.
I really like how the inside of the card turned out.
I love all the little stamps in this set because you can create so many different things with them; wreaths, and patterned backgrounds are a couple of ideas I have to experiment with. Thank you for stopping by to have a look. Next on the hop is back to the beginning with Adrienne. If you haven't been there yet, be sure to check out her creation!

If you wish to case this card, the supplies used for this card are listed below. Hope to see you at our next Hop on Saturday October 29th...

Today I am sharing with you a couple of Stampin' Up! videos! One shows you how to create your own custom gift boxes, and the other how to make tassles. After viewing the videos, I have listed all the 12 x 12 cardstock avail able in the 2016 Holiday catalogue as well as the Annual catalogue so that you can have it all in one place. Then there is a list of all the 12 x 12 DSP (Designer Series Papers) from both catalogues, and all the twine and metallic threads available in both catalogues. So be sure to get to the bottom of the post and check everything out.
Here is the video on how to make a custom gift box.
And the video on how to make a tassle using a jump ring. (I also have instructions on how to make a tassel -without a jump ring - on one of my other blogs)
So below you will see all the options for 12 x 12 cardstock. The first 5 are from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue, and the rest from the Annual Catalogue.
Next you will see all the options for 12 x 12 DSP (Designer Series Paper). The first 4 are from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue, and the rest from the Annual Catalogue.
Lastly, will see all the options for twine & metallic thread. The first 4 are from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue, and the rest from the Annual Catalogue.
A person can have a lot of fun making gift boxes! Just think what it could look like under your tree!
