Pick Six Wonder

September 21, 2021

Recently I joined an online zoom experience with Clare and Emma our Australian and New Zealand Demonstrator Development Managers for Stampin’ Up! This was a fun experience where we were shown how to turn six, 6″ x 6″ pieces of Designer Series Paper into 14 cards. The first pieces from the patterned paper were used to create three cards. I followed the template that was provided to cut the six pieces of Christmas Trimmings 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. I embossed Basic White card using the checked folder from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders which I attached to either scored and folded Soft Succulent or Evening Evergreen card.

I joined and folded the Designer Series Paper pieces together and attached them to either Soft Succulent or Evening Evergreen card. The panels are attached to the card fronts, one for a portrait card and two for landscape cards. I stamped the greeting from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set three times onto Basic White card using Evening Evergreen ink and punched them out using the Everyday Label Punch. I also punched two labels from Evening Evergreen card and one from Soft Succulent card.

I cut the coloured labels in half and attached them behind the greetings to give a little dimension. I attached a length of Evening Evergreen Chevron Ribbon behind each greeting before attaching them to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set using Evening Evergreen ink. I also stamped the leaf outline from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set beside the greeting using Evening Evergreen ink. I stamped the leaf fill image from the same stamp set using Soft Succulent ink.

I loved the idea of this Pick Six Wonder and we have been creating these in my weekly class at Beachmere. I had a kit left over and decided to create the cards again but this time adding an image from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set. So I created the card front up to the point where the Designer Series Paper panels are attached. To create the focal image panels, I stamped the stocking image from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set onto Basic White card using Soft Succulent ink. I attached the stamped panel to either Soft Succulent or Evening Evergreen card and then the card fronts using dimensionals. I stamped “Noel” from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set onto Basic White card using Cherry Cobbler ink. I trimmed around the greetings and attached them to the image panels. To decorate the inside of the cards, I stamped the greeting from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set onto Basic White card using Evening Evergreen ink. I stamped the stocking image from the same stamp set beside the greeting using Cherry Cobbler ink.

I love both versioins of these cards. Which one do you like best?

Bye for now,

Kris
