Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Holiday Catalogue Favourites

Hi Friends, 

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop HeaderWelcome to this month’s Stampers Showcase Blog Hop. I’m hopping with other talented demonstrators from around the world and we are featuring our favourite Holiday Catalogue suite. There are several in this catalogue to choose from so it was a little bit tricky to narrow it down. I don’t know about you but for me It’s a matter of turning the page and saying, ‘I like this one’ and then the next page I look at I say ‘no this one’s my favourite’ and on it goes. So many beautiful things.

I’ve chosen the Toile Tidings Suite to showcase and created a few projects with this beautiful suite. The entire suite comprises of 2 stamp sets and 2 die sets, Designer Series Paper, accessories – even wrapping paper. The colour theme is Real Red, Garden Green and Very Vanilla. 

Toile Tidings Suite

The first card uses the Toile Christmas stamp set and I’ve coloured the images with Stampin’ Blends.

Cardinal coloured in with Stampin' Blends for a Christmas card

Although the cardinal image is large, it is very easy to colour in and Stampin’ Blends are such an easy colouring medium to work with. I love the gingham Designer Series Paper in this suite. The Toile Tidings DSP is 12″x12″ and there are 2 sheets each of 6 designs. One side is Real Red and the other side has the same design in Garden Green.

For my next card I die cut a Stitched Rectangle and pencil marked the edge of the DSP and then trimmed the overhang. Then I stamped the leaves from the Tidings All Around stamp set. 

Handmade Poinsettia card

The poinsettias, die cut leaves and sentiment are from the Cup of Christmas bundle. This stamp and die set has some really cute accessory images, including candy cane, holly leaves, a bow and these poinsettias which coordinate with lots of projects and are perfect for Christmas. 

I have adhered a thin strip of DSP under the sentiment and I think it gives the look of ribbon. It’s great for using all those little bits of paper you may have (I think we all do) in your stash.

The gift bag is made from 2 sheets of 12″ Designer Series Paper and I got the instructions from Jackie Bolhuis. It’s very simple to make and a really cute bag to create a coordinate look to match the card.

    Ink, Stamp, Share Blog Hop – Christmas

    Hi and welcome,

    Our theme for the Ink, Stamp, Share Monthly Blog Hop is Christmas and it’s great to be able to participate in it with other talented demonstrators. 

    Ink, Stamp, Share Monthly Blog Hop Header

    I’ve got a coordinated set of projects using the Perfectly Plaid bundle and I added some alternate colours for this project. 

    I used the Gold Mini Pizza Boxes which are in the Wrapped in Plaid suite and embossed it with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder. In order to emboss all sections of the box, I had to insert it several times in the die cutting machine. Some sections were overlapped as the box was too wide and I added shims on top instead of the top plate. 

    Coordinated handmade Christmas gift box and card in plaid

    The card uses a panel of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper and then adhered a piece of embossed Gold Foil on top. The trees have been stamped in Melon Mambo and I stamped and punched a second set for the Mini Pizza Box at the same time. 

    Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid card

    I like the pink against the Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce, giving a different colour palette for this paper. Then I cut 2 strips of DSP for the box and wrapped one piece around the bottom, cutting off excess, adding the other piece on the lid of the box and doing the same. Then I wrapped the twine right around. 

    Top Tip

    Wish you had a third hand when tying bows? Use a glue dot to hold the first knot to the box. Then tie another knot to secure and tie your bow. The glue dot stops the twine from slipping around. This also works for ribbon.

    Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Card/Project Kits

    Hi friends,

    Welcome to Stamping Flair. I am blog hopping with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the Stampin’ Dreams Facebook Group. 

    Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop July Designer Series Paper

    The theme this month is Card/Project Kits. Stampin’ Up! offers a variety of kits both in the Annual and Holiday catalogues. You can browse the entire range of kits here. Kits can be used as suggested or altered. With the stamp sets and accessories provided they can cross over to other projects as well which make them versatile.

    My cards today use the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley from the Holiday catalogue. While a kit is centred around a specific project, a product medley gives the crafter a whole lot of products to create anything you like. 

    Most Wonderful Time Christmas card with Silver embossed Christmas tree and deer

    Most Wonderful Time Product Medley includes:

    * 11-piece photopolymer stamp set (clear blocks sold separately)
    * 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
    * 12 gold foil card fronts, 4 each of 3 designs
    * 6 sticker sheets, 2 sheets each of 3 designs
    * Gold/white tinsel trim 9.1 m
    * 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars
    * 6-piece Most Wonderful Time Dies (use with a die-cutting & embossing machine)

    This card uses the some of the products from this product medley to create a different colour palette with Seaside Spray and Silver. I masked the stamp with the image of presents, using a post-it-note and inked the bow up with Seaside Spray to create a border on the card base. The tree has been heat embossed in Silver and coloured with Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends. 

    Most Wonderful Time Product Medley, Stampin' Up!, Christmas card in alternate colours

    I used the Christmas Countdown stamp set for the stamped Whisper White layer. Then I added Night of Navy and Silver Foil strips together with the beautiful, sparkly organdy ribbon for the deer to sit on.

    Handmade Christmas card with Tree and presents Red and Green

    For my second card, I stayed with the colour palette of the product medley – Basic Black, Gold foil, Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White. For the layers, I added different strips of Designer Series Paper and stamped the sentiment on one of the included stickers. The presents were fussy cut from a sheet of DSP. The pretty gold tinsel trim and star that adorns the top of the tree are also included in this medley. This is a value pack of products that you will be able to create so many Christmas projects and cards with.

    You are currently visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith of Stamping Flair in Australia. Hope I have inspired you to try out the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley with all it’s creative options.

    Esad 2019 Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop

    Hello,

    I’m so glad that you have stopped by my blog today. A Group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the ESAD Facebook group are blog hopping showcasing the beautiful products in the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalogue. 

    ESAD Blog Hop Holiday Catalogue 2019

    Let it Snow Suite

    I’ve chosen one of the cute suites which I really love. The Let it Snow Suite (Item #153386) is on Pages 18-21 of the catalogue. This suite has several products in it and includes a very cute Snowman Builder punch, Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies and 2 sets of stamps – Snowman Season and Tiny Keepsakes (Item #150460). The coordinating colours of Blueberry Bushel, Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White give it a real wintry feel. I know it’s not your typical Aussie Christmas but somehow I love snowmen at Christmastime. This suite just adds to the Christmas magic with it’s sparkly Designer Series paper and pretty colours. 

    Snowman Christmas card with matching gift box

    My card features one of the cute snowmen from the Snowman Season stamp set. Simply stamp and punch out – it’s that easy. I fussy cut a beanie and his shawl is from the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit (Item #150425). This kit comes complete with 60 stitched felt accents in Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Shaded Spruce and Real Red, 96 enamel shapes, 36 felt snowballs, 1.8m of washi tape – lots of goodies to dress up your snowman and your projects. 

    Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

    The circle is punched out of Coastal Cabana cardstock. On top of that is one of the hidden gems in this catalogue – Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. LOVE IT! You will find this on the bottom right of Page 44. There are 2 designs which have a faux mercury glass finish. One is a speckled finish and the other is a cracked finish and they are stunning. 

    Christmas Card with Punch Snowman, diy handmade greeting card

    Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle

    The snowflakes and sentiment are from the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle which includes the Christmas Layers Dies and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. For a variety of sentiments you really can’t go past this stamp set. It has you covered for all types of Christmas cards for family, friends, faith-based, fun, gift tags and even new year greetings – 18 stamps in all. 

    Coordinate this card with this little gift box which is really quick to make and so cute decorated with the Let it Snow DSP.  I saw a version of it on Pinterest from Aural Models and adapted the way I made it. It’s a really fun pull out box and t’s got the element of surprise as it opens out in the opposite way to what you would normally expect. 

    Cube Pull out gift box Easy to make

    The box is quite easy to make.I embossed the Real Red cardstock with the Winter Knit embossing folder and used Stampin’ Write Markers to create the multi-coloured sentiment.

    Details for creating the box can be viewed HERE

    Create a Quick Set of Perfectly Plaid Cards

    I’ve got some cards to show you today with the Wrapped in Plaid suite which is probably my favourite suite in the catalogue. What I love is the traditional  colours and the simplicity of the punch. My cards use the same simple layout and are very quick to create. 

    Create 3 cards with a simple layout for Christmas. Great for stamp a stacks

    I used the Pine Tree Punch from the Perfectly Plaid bundle (Item #151143) to punch out the trees from the Designer Series Paper. These were then mounted with Dimensionals onto a 2″ circle from matching cardstock (colours I have used here are Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce). Then I added a 2 1/4″ Gold Foil circle. 

    Night of Navy Plaid Christmas card with punched out Pine Tree

    I stamped the sentiment in the coordinating ink on Whisper White cardstock 14.2 cm x 9.9 cm. The strip of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (Item #149596) has been cut to 14.8 cm x 5.2 cm.

    Create a quick Christmas card with the Wrapped in Plaid Stampin' Up! bundle

    These cards took me minutes to make and would be great to mass produce. The addition of the Gold Foil adds an extra festive feel to match with the gold on the DSP.
