Feels Like Frost Sneak Peek

Today I have a card for you featuring Feels Like Frost, one of my favorite suites from the new 2019 Holiday Catalog. The products in this suite are so pretty. The Designer Series Paper is amazing – photographic images in wonderful non-traditional Christmas colors on one side and silver foil images on the other side! Stampin’ Up! has brought back Crystal Effects, which they retired a few years ago – yay! Pair this with the fun new Ice Stampin’ Glitter to give your projects a frosty, sparkly effect. The new Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon is soft and shimmery. All of these products will be available as of September 4th.

Here is how I made this card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half.
  • Cut a piece of the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card base.
  • Die cut a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock with the stitched frame from the Frosted Frames Dies. Ink up the berry branch from the Frosted Foliage stamp set with Seaside Spray ink, stamp off and then stamp onto die cut piece. Stamp yuletide greeting with Night of Navy ink over the branch.
  • Cut piece of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon and make ribbon loop. I used a few small pieces of Scotch Tape to hold them in place.
  • Die cut one set of leaves from scrap piece of Seaside Spray cardstock. The die makes two leaves from the one piece. Apply Shimmery Crystal Effects onto the leaves and then sprinkle them with the Ice Stampin’ Glitter. Let dry for an hour before handling them. Once dry, adhere the leaves, using a thin line of liquid glue, to the opposite corners of the frame piece.
  • Finish off the card by adhering the greeting over the ribbon loops. Adhere a few Seaside Spray sequins from the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment for a little extra bling.

Dashing Deer Thanks

Today I’m featuring the second card I made using the Dashing Deer Bundle.  For this card I used the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper shown in the Annual Catalog on page 95.  It is part of the Under the Mistletoe Suite.  Sometimes we get caught up in the excitement of all the new things in the Holiday Catalog and forget that there is a whole section of Holiday items in the Annual Catalog and I knew as soon as I saw this paper that I wanted to use it in this year’s holiday projects.

 

Here are the steps to make this card:

  • Cut a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half.  Cut a piece of the plaid paper of your choice from the Under the Mistletoe designer series paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Tie a piece of 1/8″ Solid Real Red Ribbon around paper to make a bow.
  • Using Gold Foil paper, die cut the deer  from the solid die in the Detailed Deer Thinlits set.  Die cut the open red flower with Real Red cardstock.
  • Emboss a piece of Old Olive cardstock with the Swirls and Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder shown on page 5 in the Holiday Catalog. Die cut this piece using one of the large circles in the Layering Circles Framelits. Die cut a piece of Real Red cardstock with a coordinating scalloped circle from the set. Attach the two pieces.  Stamp the Many Merry Thanks sentiment from the Dashing Deer stamp set on Whisper White cardstsock and die cut using one of the smaller circle framelits.  Die cut a piece of Real Red cardstock with a coordinating scallop circle.  Attach the two pieces.

 

  • Attach the plaid paper to the card base.  Attach the embossed circle to the card.  Attach the deer at an angle.  I used Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue because it allows you to move things around and position them more easily and it also dries clear.  Attach the Many Merry Thanks sentiment.

Dashing Deer Meets Joyous Noel

I finally found time to begin playing with all of the new products I ordered from the 2018 Holiday Catalog!  Today I am featuring the first of two cards I created using the Dashing Deer Bundle pictured on pages 8-9. I love how the deer antlers form a pretty flourish.  I also like the thank you sentiments included in the stamp set because at holiday time it is nice to reach out and thank people for things they might have done for you or the community during the year.  I decided to use the elegant Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper pictured on page 29 for my backgrounds.

Here are the steps I took to make the card:

  • Cut a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half for a portrait layout card.
  • Cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the paper of your choice from the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Papers.  I chose one with a white background so that my focal piece would stand out.
  • Stamp the large image of the deer in Sahara Sand ink on Whisper White cardstock and run through the Big Shot using the coordinating Detailed Deer Thinlits Die.   It is hard to see in the photo but I brushed clear Wink of Stella all over the deer for a bit of shimmer and let dry. Die cut a Tranquil Tide flower from one of the flower dies in the set.

  • Cut a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock at 2 5/8″ x 3 3/4″.  Using the Merry Merlot striped paper from the Joyous Noel DSP cut a piece at 2 1/2″ x 3 5/8″ and adhere to the cardstock. Adhere the deer to this piece and adhere the flower to the deer with a mini glue dot.  I added a small pearl to the center of the flower.
  • Stamp the Happiest Christmas Wishes sentiment with Tranquil Tide ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I used the banner thinlit from the Petals and More Thinlits but you can use any punch or thinlit that would fit the sentiment.
  • Cut a piece of the luscious new Tranquil Tide 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon, which is included in the Frosted Floral Suite shown on page 37.  Adhere lengthwise down the center of the card and then adhere the designer paper to the card base.  Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, attach the deer focal piece to the card and then attach the sentiment below this piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment with Tranquil Tide ink and the floral banner was stamped with Merry Merlot ink.
