Kylie's International Blog Highlight August 2020 - Thank You
The theme this month is thank you. As the new Mini catalogue is just launching I decided to use a set from that. The Poinsettia Petals has a lovely thank you sentiment which souls be perfect for giving to guests yo may ave at Christmas to thank them for their company or to hosts if you spend Christmas with them.

Measurements and Materials

I have used vellum and white embossing powder to make these poinsettias look really special. I chose Night of Navy so the card stands out from the Christmas cards they are likely to have and so it will look good after they have taken their Christmas decorations down. 

  • Card Base - Night of Navy card stock
    • 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
    • Score @ 4 1/8" on long side
  • Mat for outside - Night of Navy
    • 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
    • Embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder
  • Mat for inside - Whisper White card stock
    • 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
    • Stamped with Night of Navy ink
    • Poinsettia Petals stamp set
  • Poinsettia stamps were stamped in Versamark ink on to Vellum
  • This was then covered in White embossing powder and heat embossed
  • They were then die cut using the Poinsettia dies
  • Sentiment heat embossed on to Night of Navy card stock 
  • Die cut using a stitched oval die
  • Matted with a scallop oval die cut from Vellum

Time for the closeups!

Stamp Around UK: Snowflake Wishes One Sheet Wonder

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well. Today I am taking part in the Stamping Around UK video hop. Our theme this month is the new Stampin' Up! in colours. I have done a one sheet wonder. Its ages since I did one of these. I have used one of the new bundles in the new Mini Catalogue that goes live on August 4th so it is a Sneak Peek for you :-)

I love snowflakes on Christmas cards and I also like using both traditional and non traditional colours. I love the look of Cinnamon Cider it gives a nice vintage look and you know how much I like the vintage look.  I am not so sure about the Magenta Madness but I do have some friends I can send these to that will love them. 


Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes One Sheet Wonder


Measurements and Materials


  • Randomly stamp on a sheet of A4 or your standard card stock
    • I used Misty Moonlight on my prototype 
    • I used half a sheet of Whisper White and Magenta Madness for the video
    • I also used half a sheet of Very Vanilla and Cinnamon Cider for the video
  • I stamped extra snowflakes to die cut for decorating the cards
  • Each sheet of stamped snowflakes ink was blended on using a brush
  • I used the thick Whisper White and Very Vanilla as card bases, 4 of each colour
  • I used the stamparatus to stamp the sentiment on each card base
  • The Cinnamon Cider stamped sheet was cut in half both long ways and short ways
    • Cut at 4 1/8" on long side
    • Cut at 2 7/8" on short side
  • The Magenta Madness was cut at every 2" on the long side
    • There was 1/4" left over
  • Each rectangle was inked around the edges using a sponge dauber
    • This gives a strong colour to the edge so a mat is not needed
    • You could add. mat in the i colour if you wanted to


Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)
