My name is Brandy Cox and I am a proud Stampin' Up Demonstrator. Stampin' Up has blessed my life and I get so much enjoyment out sharing my passion with others. Stampin Up has allowed me to discover a creative side I never knew that I had. I was always one of those girls that said "I'm not very crafty." But I quickly learned that we are all capable of creativity, it just takes the willingness to learn and experiment.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]BASE 

1. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Real Red Cardstock and fold it in half. This is your base.

2. Cut a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Center and adhere this piece inside yoru card.

Tip: If you want to add something decorative inside your card be sure to do so before adhering it to the inside of your card.  Always stamp first!!

3. Cut a 4-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Center and adhere this piece on top of your card.

4. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Granny Apple Green Cardstock.  This piece is for your decorative background.

5. Use a Granny Apple Green Stamp Pad to stamp your sentiment.

Tip: Start with by stamping your sentiment in the top left corner and stamp it all the way across your cardstock.  You should be able to stamp it three times across.  Then move to the next row and shift your sentiment so that it is offset a bit from the top row.  This will give you great coverage for the background.

6. Once you’ve stamped your Granny Apple Green background you can center and adhere it to your Whisper White Cardstock[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]CANDY CANE CHRISTMAS

1. Cut a 3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  This piece is for your image.

2. Use Memento Black Ink to stamp your Candy Cane Image. Let it dry for a couple seconds and then begin to color your image using Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.

3. Cut a 2-1/2 – 7/8″ pice of Real Red Cardstock.

4. Using Memento Black Ink to stamp your sentiment.

5. Use your Paper Snips to cut a banner in one end.

Tip: To create the perfect banner cut down the middle of one end of your strip.  Then cut from the corner to the center on a diagonal. Do the same thing on the other side. It works great!!

6. Layer your banner below your image and use an everyday stapler to adhere it.

7. Finally, center and adhere your colored image to the top of your card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Ideas and Inspiration[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Have you hear of a Stampin’ Up! DistINKtive Stamp? If not, then you’ll want to check them out.   
 
The DistINKtive Stamps add monochromatic dimension and artistic flair to your stamping.  These stamps create different opacities in a single stamped image for a realistic depth and intensity.They are fantastic!!
 
TIP: When using a DistINKtive Stamp you’ll want to make sure your stamp pad isn’t too juicy and apply ink using only the middle of the ink pad.  A juicy ink pad will not get the desired dimension and Inking the stamp along edges of an ink pad may cause ink line to appear in the finalize stamped image. 

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Card Base & Background

1. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock and fold it in half. This is your card base.
 
2. Use a Mossy Meadow Ink to stamp the leaves of the Bonsai Tree along the crease of your card base.
 
Tip: Try not to stamp the trunk tree.  You want to stamp only the Bonsai leaves to create your background. 
 
3. Next, cut a 5-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ piece of Soft Seafoam Cardstock and adhere it to the top of your card base. 
 
Tip: You want approx. a 1/2″ of your stamped background showing.  Layer the Soft Seafoam strip over any additional stamped background.  
 
4. Wrap a piece of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around your card and tie a decorative bow.
 
5. Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Center and layer this piece inside your card.
