FOR UNTO US IN “ANTIQUED” GOLD OR SILVER; A TINSEL TIME TUESDAY POST

Hi Stampers! Welcome to another addition of TINSEL TIME TUESDAY! Today I have two versions of the same Christmas card; one in gold and one in silver. I used a combination of dry embossing and heat embossing along with ink and a blending brush to achieve an antiqued look. My “antiqued” look can also be described as aged, distressed, shabby chic, etc. The card is made up of several bits and pieces, and does take a little longer to make than most cards, but if you have someone in your life who enjoys receiving cards in this style, it is worth the extra time. Let’s take a look at the card in both, the gold and silver versions: I used the FOR UNTO US stamp set to create the card. This stamp set was introduced in last year’s Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog, and is a “returning favorite” in the current Stampin’ Up! July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. This stamp set contains phrases from Christmas carols as well as sentiments that work well for inside cards. Here is a look at the stamp set: FOR UNTO US HERE IS HOW I MADE THE CARD: SUPPLIES FOR THE GOLD CARD * Crumb Cake card base - 8 1/2” x 5 1/2” scored and folded at 4 1/4” plus a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock to die cut the mat for the greeting. * Basic White cardstock - one piece cut at 5” x 3 3/4”, one piece cut at 4 3/4” x 3 1/2”, and a piece of scrap for the greeting. * Brushed Metallic cardstock- gold, at least 5 1/4” x 4” * Vellum scrap * Crumb Cake ink, Versa Mark, gold embossing powder * Blending brush * Heat tool * Metallic Pearls - 3 in gold * Gold shimmer ribbon - 18 - 20 inches * Stampin’ Seal (or adhesive of choice) and dimensionals * Dies - Stitched Rectangles Dies, the one that cuts a 5” x 3 3/4” rectangle and the one two sizes smaller (the smaller die is optional). Die from the Tasteful Labels Dies, Layering Circles Die that measures 2 5/8” diameter, and the “berry” and leaf dies from the Christmas Trimmings Dies. * Merry Melody 3-D embossing folder. ASSEMBLING THE CARD * Use the embossing folder and emboss the 4 3/4” x 3 1/2” piece of Basic White cardstock. * Use the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut a frame from the gold cardstock, then die cut the 3 berry stems from the center piece. (OPTIONS - Save the center piece for another project and cut the berry stems from scraps of the same cardstock. OR Do not use the smaller of the rectangle dies an Simply cut the images from the center area of the cardstock.) * Die cut 3 of the leaves images from the vellum. * Die cut the Crumb Cake circle. * Use the Tasteful labels die and cut the label for the greeting. (OPTION - Heat emboss the greeting, then die cut it.) * Use Versa Mark to stamp the greeting on the Basic White die cut label, sprinkle with the gold embossing powder, and heat set. * With a very light touch, brush the Versa Mark over the musical notes on the dry embossed cardstock. Sprinkle with gold embossing powder, brush off some excess. It is okay for the embossing powder to be a bit hit and miss. Set with heat tool. (SEE VIDEO - page down to view the video demonstration of this process.) *Use the blending brush and Crumb Cake ink to add a touch of “antiquing” (color) to the background piece (embossed cardstock); darker along the outer edges, and lighter toward the center. * Use the blending brush and Crumb Cake ink to “antique” the greeting - just as for the background piece. * “Antique” the edges of the 5” x 3 3/4” Basic White cardstock. * Stamp the greeting for the inside on the “antiqued” cardstock. * Adhere the panel to the inside of the card base. * “Antique” the dies on the card base front. * Adhere the focal panel to the gold mat. Wrap the gold ribbon around the entire panel and tie in a loose bow. Once the greeting is in place the bow will be retired. * Adhere the gold berry and vellum leaves die cuts to the back side of the greeting. Add dimensionals to the back of the greeting and place it on the Crumb Cake mat. Add dimensionals to the mat. Do not remove the backings. * Place the greeting piece on the focal panel. It should be centered and to the right side of the focal panel. The greeting should extend just slightly over the edge of the focal panel. * Adjust the ribbon as needed and re-tie. * Remove the backings from the dimensionals, and put the greeting in place. * Add the metallic pearls to the greeting panel. * Adhere the focal panel to the card base. SUPPLY LIST FOR SILVER CARD ALL SUPPLIES, CUTTING MEASUREMENTS, & ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS ARE THE SAME AS FOR THE GOLD CARD WITH THE FOLLOWING SUBSTITUTIONS: * Card base & cardstock - same as for the gold version, but substitute Smoky Slate for the Crumb Cake, and substitute silver foil (mirrored finish) for the gold brushed metallic cardstock. * Use Smoky Slate ink instead of Crumb Cake and silver embossing powder instead of gold. * Use the silver metallic pearls instead of the gold. * Instead of gold shimmer ribbon use the silver metallic mesh ribbon found in the Stampin’ Up!®️ Annual Catalog.

Welcome Christmas...

Since I seem to have left fall cards lately and moved onto Christmas cards....don't ask me why, I have no idea.. fall seems like it just began....I made another for The Cutting Edge Challenge. I chose my Impression Obsession small evergreen tree set for this challenge. They are so pretty, and I have been using them so much, that now I think I need the larger set,too. I guess I DO have an Obsession with dies! The sentiment in the inspiration photo reminded me of SU's retired Heard from the Heart sentiments. That was a great set, I use it all the time! It worked well for this card,too. I also added a tiny red heart to complete the card. Have a great day everybody! Paper: white textured,SU retired DP, real red Stamps: SU Heard from the Heart Ink: SU black Dies: Impression Obsession evergreen trees, Lawn fawn journal die set,

My Sandbox

At Just Add Ink this week, we have a lovely simple sketch from Narelle and l had heaps of fun creating with this one and think it teamed well with the Marquee Messages and Happy Birthday Gorgeous sets. Powder Pink and Pear pizzazz are a lovely combination combined with Black/White and Gold. The birthday banner was embossed with white E/P and l used my white gel pen to add detail to the arrow. Lots of fab inspiration from the design team, so pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. Thanks for stopping by! All supplies used are Stampin Up!
