I guess one of the great pleasures of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is that I get to see a new catalogue and order new product before everyone else. I have had my pre-order for a while but haven’t been able to create much with it because I was so busy getting ready for my fundraiser. Today is the day that you can now order from the Holiday Catalogue. Yay! If you haven’t seen the catalogue it is beautiful. The stamp sets are amazing and with all the co-ordinating products you will be able to make gorgeous cards and 3d items so easily. This particular card using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and matching punch which you can purchase as a bundle and save (everyone loves a bargain). The punch also matches the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set, so you get quite a lot of options – maybe too many!
To create my card, I attached a piece of the This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper to the bottom of Very Vanilla card and tied a length of the new Real Red 3/8″ Silky Taffeta Ribbon around the top and attached it to scored and folded Garden Green card. I cut the merry framelit from the Christmas Greetings Framelit Dies three times and attached them one on top of the other to create some dimension to the word (I love this technique). After I attached the word to the card front I stamped Christmas from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set using Real Red ink. I stamped the santa from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Stazon Jet Black in and coloured him using Real Red, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Blush Blossom (retired but you could easily use Pink Pirouette or Blushing Bride) Stampin’ Write Markers. I punched the image using the matching Cookie Cutter Builder punch, so much easier than fussy cutting and attached him to the left hand side of the card front.
Inside the card I stamped a greeting which also comes from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set. Well, what do you think? Can you see yourself, creating lots of fantastic things with this stamp set and matching punch, I bet you can.
Bye for now,
