Case this Sketch 287

September 4, 2018

Today’s card uses the sketch challenge at Case This Sketch as the starting point.  I am going to share a new stamp set with you – First Frost from the Holiday Catalogue.   The products in this catalogue can be purchased beginning tomorrow.   It is an amazing catalogue, one that you are going to love.

To create my card I started by cutting a square of Whisper White card and then cutting it in half on the diagonal.  I embossed the pieces using the Layering Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder.  (You really must experiement with these folders and try spritzing with water, it makes such a difference to the embossed effect.  Try it, I am sure you will be amazed.)   I attached a narrow strip of Soft Sea Foam card behind the diagonal edge on each piece and attached them to a piece of Soft Suede card.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Real Red card.  I stamped the greeting from the First Frost stamp set onto Whisper White card using Soft Suede ink and cut out the greeting using the Frosted Bouquet Framelits DiesI also cut out Real Red card using the layering framelit from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies and attached them together.  I love that you can cut out a greeting and then cut a mat to give a perfect layer.  I stamped the large leafy image from the First Frost stamp set twice onto Whisper White card using Soft Sea Foam ink.  I cut out the images using the co-ordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits Die.  I cut Soft Sea Foam card using the leafy die from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies.  I stamped the large flower and the small flower from the First Frost stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink and cut them out using the co-ordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies.  I attached the stamped and die cut leaves behind the greeting panel and attached the whole piece to the card front.  The flowers are attached over the greeting panel and the leaves.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the large leafy image from the First Frost stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Soft Sea Foam ink.  I stamped the large flower from the First Frost stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies before attaching over the stamped leaf.

I love this stamp set because has so many possibilities including Christmas.  I am sure that it is going to be a favourite from the Holiday Catalogue.  One of the things I love about being a demonstrator is the fact that we can access new product earlier than our customers, which gives us a chance to “play” with new product before anyone else.  If you have ever thought about being a demonstrator, then my advice would be to just do it.  You will soon find out what a great “family” Stampin’ Up! is.  If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Also if you don’t have a demonstrator and you want a copy of this catalogue, and you live in Australia, then contact me so that I can get one out to you.
