Stampin’ Up! Freezin’ Fun Racoon Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge. Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.

I then took a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock and embossed it using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.

I adhered a pattern from the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock. I then used the Freezin’ Friends Dies to cut a snow slope from Whisper White cardstock. Above the slope I stamped the “whoosh” in Memento Black ink on the Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the raccoon from the Freezin’ Fun Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I colored it in using the Smoky Slate (raccoon), Poppy Parade (scarf and hat), and Soft Suede (sled) Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut it out using the same dies and adhered him down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Freezin’ Fun Stamp Set in Poppy Parade ink, cutting it out with the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Finally, I used the All The Trimmings Embellishments to add a star over the tree and a white pom-pom at the end of the raccoon’s hat.

Stampin’ Up! Week of Designer Series Paper Card – Day 3 – Video Tutorial

All this week I’ve been sharing cards that use Designer Series Paper.
And I’m also sharing the top ways I like to use it.

If you missed Day 1, you can see it here and Day 2 here.

This is all leading up to a Designer Series Paper sale beginning October 1st – 15% off select Designer Series Paper.

AND on any order $50+ when you order at least one pack of Designer Series Paper, I’m throwing in a free pack of solid cardstock (in addition to the free $9 item).

Day 3: I love using Designer Series Paper for what they’re designed for.

What do I mean?  Whether it’s a snowflake pattern, tree pattern, heart pattern, or a pattern with people – I use it for just that.  If there’s an actual image being shown, I use it on my card for what it actually is.

Today, I wanted a background to my skiing buddy, so I went for a snowflake pattern.

Today’s card is the one I shared last week for my Facebook live.  It uses the super cute Freezin’ Fun Bundle in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog and I paired it with the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper.

I’ll be back tonight with another live demonstration at 7:30 pm EST on my Facebook page.  Catch it live and you’ll have a chance to win the card!

If you ever miss a tutorial, you can check them out on my YouTube channel.

To see how I made today’s card, check out the video below:
