Welcome to my blog Stamping Flair. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Melbourne, Australia and I’m hopping with my friends from the Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop today. We are highlighting products from the Mini Holiday Catalogue and with such a variety of products on offer, I’m sure you are going to be inspired by the variety of projects and styles that will be displayed.
I have used the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack with the coordinating DSP on my set of cards. I tend to fussy cut my Memories & More cards and alter them to create more options. For this first card, I fussy cut this lovely large sentiment and also cut apart the holly. I went around the leaves with the brush tip of my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to take away the stark white edge. The way to do this is to hold the image at an angle and do the same with the marker so you are just painting the edges. I also used the marker to colour in the tail of the ‘Y’ in Merry.
I added a flourish, which I cut apart, from the Christmas Layers Dies. This was cut out from one of the specialty cards. Then I added the holly leaves on top with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
I felt this was quite a regal card and I wanted to make it more ‘homely’. Adding some torn DSP softened the look of it, giving it more warmth.
This next card is so quick to make. I just trimmed one of the larger cards down and layered it on a Basic Black Matte. I wrapped some of the beautiful gold cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon combo around it. Then I added some Wonderful gems which come in a pack of Red and Gold. They’ve got a lovely, sparkly look to them and the gold one especially, looks like it is clear with gold fleck inside it.
My last card in this set has another lovely banner sentiment fussy cut and layered on DSP. The small tag banner uses the die cut from the Tasteful Labels dies. I added reindeer from the sticker sheet in the Memories & More card pack, mounting it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
So what did you notice that was common in all these cards – apart from product? There was not one bit of stamping! Sometimes it just works out that way. Priced at $21, these Memories & More cards give you some much scope for creativity. I hope I have inspired you to create with The Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card pack. Use it with products from the Wonder of the Season Suite or mix it up with any of our other beautiful products and have fun. Please leave a comment for me with your thoughts on these cards.
