I am celebrating the release of Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog with a Christmas card! Christmas somehow always sneaks up on me so I'm going to get a jump start this year :)
This catalog is full of WONDERFUL new items celebrating the latter half of the year from Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas to the Fall and Winter seasons, and even into Valentine's Day (which is a year-round holiday in my book!). Please click here to browse through it and if you send me an email with your information, I will be happy to send you a catalog!
This little guy just makes me think of crisp winter nights and hot cocoa. And he was soooo easy to create with the Scentsational Season Bundle available in the holiday catalog. This bundle comes with a set of six winter themed stamps and matching Framelits Dies to easily cut them out! Truly easy peasy! The beautiful pattern paper behind the gingerbread man is from the new Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. This paper comes in a new format for Stampin' Up! The paper pad has 48 4.5 x 6.5 sheets of double sided paper in it, with four each of twelve designs. I'm very happy with this format as I feel it will give you many options for making those Christmas cards and gifts, but many of the patterns could easily be used for non-Christmas themed projects as well. Take a look at them and I really think you will agree!
The greeting on this card is from a stamp set called Seasonal Sayings, available in the holiday catalog as well. It has options for six different seasonal sayings. I do believe this stamp set will be featured on quite a few future projects!
I wanted to try to get a close up of the glimmer accent behind the gingerbread man. This accent was created using our Silver Glimmer Paper. I can't get over how it sparkles and catches the light...it definitely adds that 'wow' factor to any project! Very low maintenance as well. I simply cut a piece of glimmer paper off my sheet, placed one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits on top and ran it through the Big Shot, so simple!
I hope you have enjoyed this sneek peek at Christmas and I have many more seasonal projects to share with you! Please 'like' me on Facebook so you don't miss any of them!
