Thanksgiving Sneak Peek

I used a new stamp set called "Lighthearted Leaves" to create my fall Thanksgiving Card.  The set coordinates with the Leaflets Framelits that are in the Annual Catalog.  It is nice when products in the holiday catalog coordinate with current products.  You will get your chance to order your own holiday products September 1st which is right around the corner.  If you are still in need of your own catalog send me an e-mail or leave a comment below.

When the catalog becomes live I will once again post all of the products used.  But for now, start getting your wish list ready for all of your upcoming holiday projects.

More Sneak Peeks from the Holiday Catalog


Yes, more pretty Christmas trees in the Holiday Catalog.  You can bundle the new Peaceful Pines stamp set with the Perfect Pines Framelits Dies in a bundle to save 15%.  And, that is the new Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum that I cut for one of the trees as well. The stamp set has 8 different trees for you to choose from, but for the card below I just cut out three trees with the Framelits.  So many possibilities and there are even more great samples in the catalog itself.

Pretty soon you can order your own holiday products.  If you do not have an existing relationship with another Stampin' Up! demonstrator feel free to contact me for your own holiday catalog.

Check back tomorrow for a Thanksgiving Sneak Peek.

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek


First, I want to apologize for the quality of the photo.  I installed a new software program on my computer and I am having all sorts of problems with it.  But, I wanted to give you this sneak peek today of one of my favorite product bundles in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.

If you like the large flower used on my card, and also the nice large sentiment you will be happy to know it comes in a bundle.  The name of the punch is Festive Flower Builder Punch and the stamp set is Reason for the Season.  You can purchase them separately, but save 15% if you purchase them in a bundle.  You can order these products September 1st.

I will post throughout the week more Sneak Peeks, and hopefully I can figure my new software program out soon and get you better quality pictures.





 
I am not posting the new products used but my colors are Real Red, Garden Green and Whisper White.  The details stamped on the flower are from the stamp set, and I added some Dazzling Details to the petals for more sparkle, and the center of the flower was embellished with a White Perfect Accent.




The following current products listed below were used:

Happy Patterns





If you want a colorful card, the Happy Patterns Decorative Mask makes it easy to add your favorite colors wherever you want them.  You get 4 stencils with all-occasion patterns, and as you can see I used the mask with the dots and happy stencil to make my birthday card.



My card base is Daffodil Delight Card Stock that I layered with a piece of Melon Mambo and Whisper White.  The dot colors are Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay.  My happy is also Melon Mambo ink and a piece of Melon Mambo 1/4" Cotton Ribbon was also added.  My birthday sentiment, from the Age Awareness Stamp Set was cut out with a Project Life Framelit and a bit of Daffodil Delight ink was sponged around the edges to give it a bit more dimension.



Tip:  To keep your mask from moving use a few pieces of tape to hold it into place while stenciling.

Endless Birthday Wishes


 
When you add some Work of Art designs with your sentiments and cake you get a very simple, yet colorful birthday card.  Sending it to a man and you could just change your colors, but the design works for any birthday.
 
My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and I used Mint Macaroon, Wisteria Wonder, and Daffodil Delight ink to stamp my background, and used Early Espresso for my dots, sentiments, and cake.  The little to you was highlighted by cutting it out with my Banner Punch and sponging it with some Early Espresso Ink.  One layer cards can still be pretty when you add some pretty colors.

Go Wild Designer Paper Banner Birthday


 
The Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack has great patterns and I think I will use it a lot for masculine cards.  You get 48 sheets of 6" x 6" paper with 4 each of 12 double-sided designs for a lot of options.
 
I cut a few different sizes of Banner Framelits with my paper and layered it onto Whisper White and Basic Black Card Stock.  I added some Metallics Sequins, and my large birthday sentiment is from the Big News Stamp Set, and it was just the right size for this card.
