How to make Star of David Shaped Hanukkah Card Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute fun fold card.  Today, I am going to share another project in my 25 Days of Christmas Holiday Card Series 2019.  I am going to share with you a Star card, and yes I did say this was a fun fold.  Which I know if you follow me (and if you don't why would you not :)) you know that I don't do them a lot.  My rule is if something is to many steps I am probably not going to do it.  And, I know must of you are the same way.  I also designed this card to be a Hanukkah card for my Jewish friends out there.  Here's a look at my project.

Tips & Tricks: 

I used the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper for my card today, and it is cut at 8 3/4 x 10".  You going to line it up at 5 on the 10" side and make a center mark.  Then you are going to turn the designer series paper in the trimmer from the center point to the bottom corner and make cut it to make a triangle.   Then you are going to pull in the Simply Score and score at 4 3/8 and 5 7/8 on all three sides.  When you are lining up make sure that you are keeping the point in the corner slightly away from the top of the score board so you don't damage you points.  You will want to fold and burnish your score lines into a mountain and valley fold.  


You are going to need a piece of 5 x 5 piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and you are going to line up the cardstock with your folded card and trace around.  Then cut inside the lines to get the insert for your card.  At this point you can stamp your sentiment on the inside.  I used the candles from I say Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped them in Tuxedo Black ink because I colored them using my stampin blends.   The other set I used was the A Wish For Everything bundle since it has great sentiments and matching dies that you create the prefect sentiment for any project.

I stamped my candles three times but masked off the ones that I wanted.  I wanted to create a little menorah so the candles were the easiest way to do this.  I then colored them candles with my Night of Navy light stampin' blend and the Light Mango Melody one for the tops.  I just did simple coloring to fill in the candles.  I then stamped the sentiment at the top and bottom of the candles in Night of Navy ink.  I used snail adhesive to adhere it to the inside of the card.
Once you get the sentiment in it's time to fold up your card.  And, it's just a simple mountain valley fold starting in one corner, and you are going to do go around until you get to the last side and you are going to tuck the last one in to the first one.  Basically you are tucking each inside corner under the other.  It makes more sense when you watch the tutorial.
The die cut HAPPY will be attached to the oval with liquid glue, and the hanukkah is stamped.  I finished off the card with some of the star designer elements.

Seasonal Wreath for #PCC355

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super fun Fall themed card for you for the Paper Craft Crew Weekly Sketch Challenge.  This week we have a very versatile sketch for you that you can create a lot of different cards with.  I used the Seasonal Wreath Stamp Set from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog to create my card for you.  Here's a look at my card.

And here's the inspiration image for my card.  You can play along over at the Paper Craft Crew website or just check out all the designs that the design team came up with with this sketch.  

Tips & Tricks: 

For my card I heat embossed the wreath image from the Seasonal Wreath Stamp Set in Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Then I took my sponge daubers and added ink to the wreath for a emboss resist technique.  As far as the inks I used they are as followed; Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Merry Merlot.  I went with nice Fall colors, I did throw in a little Rich Razzleberry just for fun.  
My card base is a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  I added some of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper that was cut at 5 1/4 x 4 to the front of the card base.  I thought that the Pretty Peacock color complimented the colors in the embossed resist wreath very nicely.  I then added a scrap of Vellum Cardstock to the front of the card so that the wreath would have an anchor point.  I also added a little strip of the same designer series paper (this is the reverse side) under the wreath and made it into a fish tail banner.  
To finish off the card I popped the wreath up on Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and placed it over the vellum layer.  I stamped my sentiment onto a scrap of Cajun Craze Cardstock  and trimmed it out using my Paper Snips.  I cut around the grateful and then cut the two smaller sentiments into thin strips.  I added these to the wreath with a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then added a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels that I colored with my Bronze Stampin' Blend Marker and added a double bow that I made from a little Linen Thread.   I attached the bow with a Mini Glue Dot, and that finished off my card. 
 Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have enjoyed my little card and that you will give this simple emboss resist technique a try on your next Fall themed card.  I will see you again tomorrow for another fun little project.
