Winter Woods

Another card I made using holiday products in the Annual Catalog contains stamps from both the Dashing Deer and Winter Woods Stamp Sets.  Both of these are available now if you are having a hard time waiting until September 4th to order new holiday products.

I used my Stamparatus to line up the trees in the background.  The Stamparatus is a great tool for making it easy to quickly stamp repeated images.  I also cut a small layer of Whisper White Card Stock and added it to the bottom of the card to make it look like snow, and then added my cut tree and deer. Some Red Rhinestones were added for tree decorations and Garden Green ink was daubed onto my sentiment for a bit more color.

Simple Christmas Card

While you wait for the new Holiday Catalog products to go live on September 4th, you can still get a head start on your holiday cards.  There are some really nice Christmas and holiday stamp sets in the Annual Catalog that you can use, and for today's card I used the Merry Christmas to All stamp set and coordinating Merry Christmas Dies to create this simple Christmas Card.

Coordinate your colors, add a few simple layers and this card is finished.

Spooktacular Bash

 Coffin Treat Boxes filled with Halloween Hershey Kisses!

Embossed front

It's time to start preparing for all of the upcoming Holidays, and the Spooktacular Bash Stamp Set and Coffin Treat Boxes are perfect for your little trick or treaters.

You get 12 boxes that are really easy to put together, and cutting out the images was quick with the coordinating dies.

To make the front of the coffin box a little cuter I embossed it with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.  All of these products will be available soon on September 4th.

My Holiday Catalog preorder should be here in a few days and I am so excited to start making new cards and projects that I can share with you.

In the meantime, here is a sneak peek at one of the new suites called Brightly Gleaming.  Beautiful cards created by Stampin' Up! to get you all excited for what is coming. 

If you are one of my customers, your copy of the Holiday Catalog should be coming to your home soon.  If you do not have an existing relationship with another Stampin' Up! Demonstrator just leave a comment, or send me an e-mail and I will be happy to get a catalog to you.

Magnolia Christmas!

Yes, we are doing Christmas cards at my stamp classes and while we are all patiently waiting for the new Holiday Catalog to go live, there are still products in the Annual Catalog that you can use.

Another demonstrator shared how she colored a piece of the Magnolia Lane Designer Series paper to make holiday flowers and I thought how clever.  Here is the card I made using her idea.

Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends were used to make my holiday flowers, and the green was already in the paper.  I used my dark blend to color over the Petal Pink that was in the flowers, and the light blend over the remainder of the flower.  So, while we wait for our new holiday products, if you have this paper you already have a jump start on your Christmas projects.
