Christmas Gleaming with WOW Card Sketch #1

Time to create some quick, easy and yes WOW Christmas Cards. The Christmas Gleaming Suite on pages 30-32 of the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog is where you’ll want to go. The bundle alone includes not just one but two fabulous punches. Because the catalog is a treasure of ideas, you’ll want to CASE all the projects on page 30. But, today, I’ve made it really easy with my WOW Card Sketch #1 that features the Christmas Gleaming suite.

Christmas Gleaming, WOW Card Sketch #1, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

What’s so great about a WOW Card Sketch? It gets your mojo going. It’s easy to adapt to any occasion or set. I’ve used this sketch to create my Christmas Gleaming card.

WOW Card Sketch #1, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Did you catch my first card that I created with the sketch? Totally different, but just as beautiful. I’ld love to share how you can take it up a notch with the sketch. I’m adding in some copper embossing and a cute technique on the berries in the holly stamp.

Christmas Gleaming, WOW Card Sketch #1, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Ok, first off, could that paper be any more beautiful. The Brightly Gleaming DSP has been sooooo popular and on backorder a couple of times. As of this writing, it is currently in stock. But, don’t wait, add a pack or two to your next order. You’ll thank me later.

Christmas Gleaming, WOW Card Sketch #1, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because I used our new Shimmery Crystal Effects on the holly berries, they have loads of dimension and shine. They look so realistic and makes the focal image that much more exciting. 

Christmas Gleaming, WOW Card Sketch #1, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

To finish off the inside of the card, I stamped that beautiful border in Cherry Cobbler and the sentiment in Old Olive. I love the ease of coordination in Stampin’ Up!’s product line.  You can’t go wrong! As always, I’ve got a FREE video for you. Be sure to subscribe to my channel today!

Winter Sampler Featuring Let it Snow

Winter Sampler Featuring Let it Snow

I LOVE creating samplers. Are you ready for my Winter Sampler? I’m going to feature lots of the products in our Let it Snow Suite. You can find all those on pages 18-21 in the Holiday Catalog.

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Ok tell me, does this not make you smile? It’s just such a happy  piece. And you know what, if the cold weather we’ve been having is any indication, this might be the year we see some snow flurries in Louisiana. So, I’m ready!!

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The Let it Snow suite include the cute Snowman Season Bundle. That one includes the stamp set and the snowman builder punch. There has been some very popular items in the suite. First off, the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint has been a BIG HIT!!! All you have to do is apply it, heat it up with a heat tool and watch the magic happen. 

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

One of the “sleeper” die sets, (in my humble opinion) you may have missed, is the gorgeous Stitched Brightly Dies. Those can be found on page 29. That’s what I used to create that lovely star image. Because they are so beautiful, I decided to isolate one of the Christmas trees on the other die to create the square with the lone Christmas tree.

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The swirly images that accent the top and bottom corners of my Winter Sampler, are die cuts from the Stitched Stars Dies. That set will take you long past the holiday season.

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Are you wondering how I created those sparkly snowflakes? First, I cut three sets of the images, using the die in the Christmas Layers Die set. Then I applied a coat of our new Shimmery Crystal Effects, sprinkled on some of the Ice Stampin’ Glitter and let it dry. The effect is dramatic and was the perfect touch to my icy Winter Sampler.

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Be sure to pick up a pack or two of the Let it Snow Specialty DSP. Those stinkin’ cute snowmen came from the paper. One can be punched while the other two easily fussy cut. Want to create a sample for yourself or to give as a fabulous gift? Not only do I have a FREE video tutorial for you, but a full PDF instruction file.

WOW Card Sketch #1 Featuring Gather Together

WOW Card Sketch #1 Featuring Gather Together

First, sorry I’ve been a little MIA. I caught some respiratory bug and have been sick for 2 weeks. I’m finally starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel.  Thanks to all that sent so many get well wishes. They meant the world to me.  Getting back into the swing of things though, I experienced a little loss of mojo. Yes, it happens to me too! But, I always know that I can get things back on track with a WOW Card Sketch.

WOW Card Sketch #1, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

A card sketch is a quick and easy way create cards in a flash. I would love to start a new series on my blog and YouTube channel. But, I need your help. Would you like to see a WOW Card Sketch series? Is this something you would find helpful? Leave a comment and let me know. I used this sketch to create three different styles. Today, let’s dive into my Gather Together Fall inspired card.

WOW Card Sketch #1, Gather Together, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Once I drew the sketch, got all my dimensions nailed down, my next decison was a theme. Mine was Fall and a season of thanks. What better set than the Gather Together bundle. The #1 rule in using a sketch, don’t get stuck on making the WOW Card Sketch to literal. It’s only a guide. 

WOW Card Sketch #1, Gather Together, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

You can see here that I turned the focal image in order for it to meet my needs and use of my “pretties”. Those leaves are over the top gorgeous. The dies in the Gathered Leaves set cut and emboss at the same time. I spritzed my Pretty Peacock card stock with a little Champagne Shimmer Mist, then ran it through my die cutting machine. Instantly you get a great embossed and sparkly image.Gotta love that!!

WOW Card Sketch #1, Gather Together, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because I wanted to finish off the inside of my card, I added a Very Vanilla mat and went to stampin’. That’s what we do best, right?

WOW Card Sketch #1, Gather Together, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Then, by using my WOW Card Sketch, I pulled that gorgeous Come to Gather designer series paper and cut my mats. If you guys know me at all, you know I love rich Fall colors. My color palette is Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock. Choosing Very Vanilla for my neutral, tied everything together.
