Freshly Made Sketches 148
The sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week gave me the opportunity to show off a stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue which will be released on the 1st September. I love that I get to “play” with these items a whole month before the catalogue is released. Just one of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.
Anyway this is my creation. I attached a piece of Early Expresso Polka Dot Designer Series paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack to scored and folded Whisper White card. I stamped the tree images from the Festival of Trees stamp set onto Whisper White card using Garden Green ink. I stamped the baubles onto one of the trees using Cherry Cobbler ink and the tinsel onto the solid tree using Early Expresso ink. I was able to do this quickly and easily because this is a photopolymer stamp set, therefore, I can easily see where to place the images. I punched the trees out using the matching Tree Punch. The stamp set and punch can be purchased as a bundle so you get to save money and have a fabulous stamp set and punch at your disposal to create as many Christmas cards as you desire. I stamped the greeting onto the Whisper White card using Early Expresso ink before attaching the trees to the panel. The tree with the baubles is attached using dimensionals. The image panel is attached to Cherry Cobbler card and then the card front using dimensionals.
Want another surprise, well the greeting comes from a stamp set called Good Greetings and this is going to be a special release for Hostesses. I’m not sure of the dates yet, so keep watching, but you will really want this set, it has 19 greetings covering just about every occasion you can think of and I think the font is just gorgeous.
Soooooo, I hope you enjoy this card and that it has made you excited to see the new Holiday Catalogue.
Bye for now,
Unfortunately I can’t show you images of the stamp sets yet!
