Sneak Peek: NEW Holiday Catalog Snowflake Sentiment Card

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek of Snowflake Sentiment Bundle Available Starting Tomorrow!

 

Tomorrow is the launch of the new Holiday Catalog and to celebrate, all this week I’ve been offering sneak peeks and some of the products and projects you can make from items in the new catalog. Today wraps up the series with this Christmas card that uses the Snowflake Sentiment bundle with gorgeous snowflake stamps from the Snowflake Sentiment stamp set and matching Swirling Snowflake Thinlit Dies that are so intricate and gorgeous! I also used the new Foil Snowflakes and Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper. To make this project, I started with a card base of Whisper White Thick Cardstock for the card base and I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment in Versa Mark on a scrap of Whisper White. Next is a layer of the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper and then I ran Gold Foil paper through the Big Shot with the Snowflake SEntiment Thinlit Dies twice to make the gold foil “borders.” I decided to place a layer of Vellum to tone down the images a bit so that the Foil Snowflake and sentiment would really stand out. I heat embossed the sentiment in Gold Stampin’ Embossing Powder and cut it out with an oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and assembled.

Candy Cane Suite Seasons Card

suite-seasons-card

 

This is a super quick and easy Christmas card to make! Simple punch out several circles using a 1″ Circle Punch and Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. Adhere to a Crumb Cake card front and stamp the sentiment from Suite Seasons in Real Red Ink. Cut out the Ginger Bread man from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series paper and attach to the card front along with  some Candy Cane Lane Baker’s Twine and voila! A delightful card that is easy to produce but will be remembered fondly. Here are the supplies for the card:

Detailed Santa Glitter Card

detailedsantaglittercard

 

This is another bundle from the Holiday Catalog that I fell in love with. It’s on sale right now, so if you love it as well, now is the best time to get it! Click here to check out the sale prices. I die cut Santa in Silver Glimmer Cardstock and backed it with Red Glimmer Cardstock. The card base is in Real Red Cardstock and then I used a small piece of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper to add the stripes at the bottom and ran a section of the Real Red 3/4″ ribbon across. I stamped “HO HO HO” in Real Red ink on Whisper White Cardstock and punched it with the 2″ Circle Punch. I used the Stitched Shapes dies to cut a Real Red circle and I mounted the stamped sentiment onto the circle with foam dots and stuck it on the ribbon. And a glitter Santa was born! Here are the supplies used:

Jolly Father Christmas Card

 

jolly-santa

This is the fifth and final card we will be making tomorrow. It uses one of my FAVORITE holiday stamps, the Father Christmas stamp set. Anything that is old fashioned or Victorian looking gets my immediate vote! I tried to combine old fashioned with modern (Washi tape). I did use Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils to color in Santa. They aren’t in the current catalog but WILL be available to order starting in January. They are AMAZING. Color in an image, then use an Aqua Painter and brush water over what you’ve colored and voila, instant watercolor image. So clever! I hope to see you tomorrow at class! I can probably squeeze you in, I had a last minute cancellation, so email me if you’d like to come.  Also, don’t miss out on the Super Holiday Savings at Stampin’ Up! They are clearing out their shelves as they prepare for a new catalog in January, so now is a great time to stock up on holiday card and project supplies. Click here to find out more.

Christmas Angel Card

angel-card

 

This was the first holiday stamp set I ordered from the Holiday Catalog! I loved the angel image and the sentiments! What’s great about stamps like these is you can watercolor them (which is what is done on this card), color them in with pencils, markers, etc. Design  your coloring pages! I added a bit of bling with sequins. Apologies about the ribbon, it is NOT Stampin’ Up! but my order didn’t come with ribbon I had wanted to use so I had to improvise. I’ve listed the correct ribbon in the supply list below. This is the fourth project we will be making this Saturday in our December Card Class. Today is the last day to sign up, so email me ASAP if you want to attend!   The supplies used will be listed at the end of this post.

Reindeer Greetings!

Here is the second of the five projects we will be making this Saturday in class. It’s a cute reindeer card using the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle. The images on this set are so adorable, a little Santa, Reindeer, Gingerbread Man, or Eskimo and a very clever punch that works with all the images. You have stamps and the punch that can create decorations to whatever you choose to make. Too much fun! Here are the supplies for the card:
