More Bethlehem Edgelets - Long Cards

Surprise, surprise!

I am back again posting more cards I made using the Bethlehem Edgelets. You may not know this, as I do not often get the chance, but I love to make long or tall & skinny cards that fit into a #10 business envelope. This size is a little out of the ordinary, giving it a more unique look. That is what I did this time for this card design.

Because I am using Soft Sky, a discontinued colour but all I have at the moment, I was limited in the number of cards I could make with these colours. I am sad to see Soft Sky is no longer available, as it was one of my favourite Stampin' Up cardstock colours.

Let's have a closer look at the card, shall we.

I used a gold gel pen to trace around the outer edge of the Crumb Cake oval, and to draw the little stars over Bethlehem.

Again, I love the Bethlehem layers!

The oval is popped up too.

Well, that is it for now. I have had fun playing with the few Stampin' Up product I have access to at this time. I so look forward to having it all in a craft room again all at my finger tips.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed seeing the fun I have had. I have to go back to my work in preparing samples for classes to teach at Scrapbook Essentials BC. So, it may be a while before I can post again. We will see. Maybe in early Spring....

In the mean time I say, Happy creating!

Life's Curve Balls & Bethlehem Edgelets

Hello Everyone, and Welcome!

Here I am! Are you surprised? I must apologize to everyone, I truly thought that I would have the time to create some personal Stampin' Up projects while teaching classes at the studio. Turns out that I have been busier than anticipated. I have really missed coming to this blog to post and share. However, I have wanted for quite a while to create Christmas cards using the Bethlehem Edglets, and finally have had the chance to do so.

I was inspired by a card creation I saw on Pinterest (could find the link to who created it) who used this die set, and the Star of Night stamp set. I had to be creative as I do not have the 'Star of Night' stamp set. But I do like mixed media, and happen to have stencils and paste that would take the place of the stamp set and add some texture to the card at the same time.

When deciding on the number of cards to make, I decided that a dozen would be good, as I wanted to make other card designs using this die set for this Christmas. So here they are!

The sentiment stamp you see is not Stampin' Up, as most of my Stampin' Up product is in storage and has been for a little over a year now. Here is what the card looks like.

I do not know if you can tell from the photo, but the smaller die cut star is cut from the 6 x 6 pack of glitter paper. The larger star is just Whisper White.

If you see some glitter on the white stencilled paste, that is because I put it there after the paste dried.

I sure like the layered look of the Bethlehem scene. This is a die set I will keep for a long time.

I am sure many of you that follow this blog, may have had this set for a while, but for me this is the first time I had a chance to use it. I plan on making a few more cards with this die set, so see you soon!

It was wonderful to post here again with some Stampin' Up product!

Happy creating everyone!
