I really like the large sentiments in the Wonderful Year Stamp Set and you can stamp them onto your card front, and add the coordinating inside sentiment too.
I embossed my Real Red Card Stock with the Holly Embossing Folder. Next, I cut a piece of hisper White Card Stock and placed on two pieces of Presents & Pinecones Designer Washi Tape. I wrapped my tape under my paper so it would stay put. I then stamped my sentiment and sponged some Mint Macaron ink onto this layer for a bit more color.
The Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper comes with 48 sheets of 6" x 6" double sided paper - 4 each of 12 different designs. A nice selection to layer and add to any project.
To cover the full top of my Whisper White Card Base I placed a piece of the designer paper, and then cut two smaller pieces to add as additional layers. I stamped my sentiment in coordinating Garden Green Ink, cut out two Oval Framelits and placed this onto my layers with Dimensionals.
If you haven't seen that sentiment in with the regular Christmas and Holiday Stamp Sets, it is from the "My Hero" stamp set on the last page of the Annual Catalog. This stamp set is the one Stampin' Up! selected as the Ronald McDonald House set - meaning for each set it sells $3.00 will be donated to that wonderful organization.
The raised image of the Pine Bough Embossing Folder can be colored in for even more dimension. I used a Sponge Dauber and Pear Pizzazz ink to make it stand out.
I also added a strip of Presents & Pinecones Designer Washi Tape, tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine onto a Mini Pinecone which I placed onto my card using glue dots. A really quick card to make too!
Another video today, showing some great uses for the Here's to Cheers Stamp set and Coordinating Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies. Pair these up with the 6" x 17" Gusseted Cellophane Bags to make nice gift bags.
The stamp set and framelits can be purchased together in a bundle to save you 10%.
First I want to apologize for not keeping my blog up to date these last few days. I have been so busy preparing for 3 craft fairs that I haven't had the time to post. So I thought I would at least share some videos by Stampin' Up! showing more of the products in the Holiday Catalog.
The Fancy Frost Designer Series Paper is white-on-white textured paper with designs that show when the paper is inked. You get 12 sheets of 12 x 12 paper, 2 each of 6 single-sided designs. We will be using it at my November Stamp Class to make some pretty holiday and winter cards.
In addition to sponges, you can also color your paper with Sponge Daubers and the Sponge Brayer.

If you are a customer of mine and do not wish to purchase 3 packs, please contact me as I am combining customer paper orders and will give everyone the sale price when I include the cost of the 4th pack as free.
