The Snowflake Showcase Seasonal Greeting Card is one you don’t want to miss…it’s limited time!! The Snowflake Showcase products are jammed packed of amazing stamps and dies and they aren’t just for the holidays! The Happiness Surrounds stamp set can be used all year long with the coordinating Snowfall Thinlits that double as beautiful flowers!

Today’s snowflake Christmas greeting card uses the Snow is Glistening stamp set which is also an option in the Snowflake Showcase of products. This beautiful 13-piece photopolymer stamp set includes images perfect for clustering – just like I have on today’s card. And while you may think of using light blue for snowflakes, I also added a stronger hue of Bermuda Bay. Don’t overlook non-traditional colors!

During the video I share tips on die cutting and adhering these smaller velvet snowflakes and I teach you how to color rhinestones to coordinate with your project.

Make sure to scroll down so you don’t miss the pictures and cutting dimensions so you can recreate this beautiful Snowflake Showcase seasonal card.

I used Basic Gray ink to stamp the greeting, insuring it stood out among the multi-colored snowflakes. Don’t forget about zig zagging your ribbon to create a simple and elegant feel to your holiday cards.

Craft Tip: Clean Sticky Scissors

Video tip: Craft Tip: Clean Sticky Scissors. Lisa's Stamp Studio

Today I’ve got a handy Craft Tip: Clean Sticky Scissors! There’s nothing worse than a pair of sticky scissors! Whether you’re trimming a piece of cardstock that had adhesive on the back or cutting Dimensionals into smaller pieces, I think we can all agree that once your scissors are difficult to open and close that it’s time to clean them.

Today’s tip for your craft scissors video will share important details about the do’s and don’ts of cleaning your scissors. For instance, did you know you shouldn’t use rubbing alcohol? Did you know there’s a citrus-based product that actually will help lubricate the screw/rivet on your scissors? Have you thought of dedicating a pair of ‘sticky scissors’ in your craft room for messy paper crafts jobs? I’ll cover all these tips plus how to soak stubborn sticky scissors, too – all in today’s video. And my cleaning tips will work great for your Paper Piercing Tool, Take Your Pick Tool and Stylus Tools, too.

DIY Snowman Slider Card

Video tutorial DIY Snowman Slider Card. Lisa's Stamp Studio. Stampin' Up! Spirited Snowmen

Who can resist an interactive card that delights and brings a smile to any recipient?! So today I’m sharing a DIY Snowman slider card. This snowman slider card was inspired by my team member, Meagan Justus of Inkredible Techniques. I fell in love with the interaction of this card and knew my great nephew’s would love receiving it.

Meagan created her card vertically. Although I used the same Spirited Snowmen stamp set Meagan used, I opted for a different image which forced me to change the orientation of the card.  Today’s card will teach you how to create the slider card in the landscape format. If you prefer to create yours vertically, you can view Meagan’s card, video and tutorial HERE.

You will find the pictures, cutting dimensions and supplies for my snowman slider card after the video in this post. This card will have your friends and family sliding into the holidays with delight!

Tip: 2 Ways to Tear Card Stock for Unique Look

Video tip: 2 Ways to tear card stock for unique look. Lisa's Stamp Studio

I’m sharing two foolproof ways to tear card stock edges to create a perfect worn look. The beauty of this tear tip is in the “how to” and the benefit of Stampin’ Up!’s card stock.

Stampin’ Up! products remain top notch quality and that’s evidenced when you tear the card stock. Most cardstock, when torn, leaves behind a visible white layer of paper underneath because the card stock is not dyed all the way through. The unsightly white edges are often covered with ink by paper crafters – a step that you don’t have to be concerned with when using Stampin’ Up! card stock!

Two Ways to Tear Card Stock for Unique Look

Many paper crafts are leery of purposely creating worn edges with the tear of their card stock. They fear they will tear too much or too little. So what’s the best way to tear it to ensure you have some control? Today’s quick tip video will show you two ways to without wondering.

Video tip: 2 Ways to tear card stock for unique look. Lisa's Stamp Studio

The first tear tip uses your thumb and index finger in a guide. During the video I’ll share tips on how to accurately place your fingers to provide a boundary for tearing.

The second tear tip uses an Aqua Painter. Place a wet trail on your card stock and tear away. The moist edge of your card stock provides the perfect barrier between what should go and what should stay.
