Sneak Peak

July 13, 2017

Beginning on the 1st August Stampin’ Up! is releasing one stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue so that you can pre-purchase and jump start your Christmas cards.  It also means that those bonus coupons you earn this month can be used towards this purchase.  But wait there is more!  If you sign up to be a demonstrator this month, in addition to purchasing your kit of $235.00 worth of product for $169.00, you will get an additional free Essentials pack work $85.00 and the Carols of Christmas stamp set.  How good is that!  Once the Holiday catalogue goes live in August you will be able to purchase the stamp set and the dies as a bundle – Yay!

Soooooo, I thought you might like to see the first card I have made using this set.  I attached a piece of the Be Merry Designer Series Paper across the bottom of Whisper White card.  I wrapped the top of the paper with a length of Gold 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon and tied a knot.  I stamped one of the ornament images from the Carols of Christmas stamp set onto the right hand side of the Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink.  On scrap paper I stamped the same image three times, once using Cherry Cobbler ink, once using Garden Green ink and once using Crumb Cake ink.  I used the co-ordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies to cut out all of the ornaments.  Then I attached one of each colour over the stamped images using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  The panel is attached to scored and folded Cherry Cobbler card.  I stamped the greeting from the Carols of Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink and cut it out using one of the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.  I attached the greeting to a Cherry Cobbler scalloped square cut using the same dies and then the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside I stamped the same ornament image from the Carols of Christmas stamp set onto the top left hand corner using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I attached three of the ornaments that I had previously cut over the stamped image.

It’s a simple card but I am happy with my first creation.  Life has been a little hectic as Ron and I only returned home on the weekend after spending two weeks in our caravan travelling with our grandsons to visit the dinosaurs in Winton.  We had so much fun.  Starting to get back into routine, so hopefully will have some more samples with this lovely stamp set and co-ordinating dies soon.

Bye for now,
