Still Scenes Bundle

Just when you think it can’t get any better, the Holiday Catalog continues to offer products for creating innovative projects.  One such product offering is the Still Scenes Bundle.  The Still Scenes Bundle includes the Still Scenes Cling Stamp Set and the Snow Globe Scenes Dies.  You can combine the individual images from the stamp set to create a snow globe that can be as simple or fancy as you desire. You can even create interactive shaker cards.  With the Snow Globe Scenes Dies, you can create custom winter and Christmas die cuts to create your own snow globe design.  The new Snow Globe Shaker Domes pair perfectly with the bundle enabling you to create a variety of snow globe designs.

Watch the short video below as Holly demonstrates how easy it is to use the Still Scenes Bundle to create a unique snow globe card.

Free Skate

At last month’s Shoebox Swap, I was able to make this beautiful Free Skate card.  The purpose of the swap was for demonstrators to make and share projects from the Holiday Catalog.  We each brought all the precut materials to use for stamping and assembling our design. This allowed us to create a variety of cards in just a couple of hours .  Today’s card uses the Free Skate Bundle.  The bundle includes the Free Skate Cling Stamp Set and the Detailed Skate Dies. The card also showcases the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I would like to thank the card designer, Jamie Lavender, for the beautiful layout and product selection.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  

Free Skate

Card Details:
  • Card base is Pretty Peacock (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″).
  • For the next layer, cut a piece of Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Attach to the card base using Snail Adhesive.
  • Use the Detailed Skate Dies to cut the skate.  The skate base and ties are cut from Pretty Peacock cardstock.  The lacy pattern on the skate uses Whisper White cardstock and the skate blades are Gold Foil paper.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or the Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach the layers to the skate base.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Pretty Peacock Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a 3-1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the Holly.  Color the holly leaves with the Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.  
  • Cut the sentiment piece using the Stitched Labels Dies and attach to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  • Add Red Rhinestones to the berries on the holly.
  • Finish the card by adding the skate to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Christmas Countdown Project Kit

Do you love project kits?  If so, you’re going to love the Christmas Countdown Project Kit by Stampin’ Up!   This Christmas craft kit let’s you create your own hand-crafted advent décor.  You can fill the boxes with small gifts, and let the countdown begin!  The kit includes enough supplies to create 25 mini boxes and has a sturdy outer box to hold them all.  The Christmas Countdown Stamp Set is used to complete the holiday themed  project and is sold separately.   The project colors includes Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White with Gold Foil to add some shine! Be sure to watch the short video below as Natalie showcases the project kit.

But wait!  Though the project kit is called Christmas Countdown, it’s not just for Christmas. Christmas Countdown Project Kit Variation

Isn’t it a great idea for storing embellishments?  In my craft room, numerous methods have been tried for embellishment storage.  Yet, the system currently in use still does not allow me to see purchased embellishments. You know the saying – out of sight, out of mind!   Which means embellishments are forgotten and thus not used enough.  Therefore, I my recent order includes an extra Christmas Countdown Project Kit to use for embellishment storage.  I look forward to it arriving and will share the finished project in a future blog.

Other uses include decorating the reverse side of the boxes for other holiday themes such as Easter is Coming.   Or perhaps, use as a Birthday Countdown.  What other uses can you think of?    

Be sure to place your order for the Christmas Countdown Project Kit before it becomes Sold Out!  You can order below in the Project Materials section.

Cup of Christmas

It’s time to lift up our cups and celebrate the Cup of Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set in the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog!  The celebration is for the patent pending Reversibles stamp set.  It includes specialized photopolymer stamps that allow you to stamp with both sides of the stamp for greater versatility.  The Cup of Christmas stamp set and coordinating Cup of Cheer Dies are available separately or for a savings of 10% can be purchased in the Cup of Christmas bundle.  The Cup of Christmas Stamp set includes 15 photopolymer stamps but with the reversible stamps, it’s like having two extra stamps added.  There are 13 dies including mugs, candy canes, holly and more in the set of Cup of Cheer dies.

Cup of Christmas Bundle

In the video below, Brian showcases the new Cup of Christmas photopolymer stamp technology.

Having recently received the stamps, I can attest that it’s wonderful to be able to stamp reverse images.  It opens the door to greater creativity.  I’ll be sharing projects using the Cup of Cheer Bundle soon.  

Spread tidings of comfort and joy and a cup of cheer to all your friends and family this season with the Cup of Christmas Stamp Set and Cup of Cheer Dies.

Another Christmas in July Project

Yay! The Hallmark Christmas in July movies kickoff this Friday so I’m celebrating with another Christmas in July project.  Since the heat definitely makes it the dog days of summer, it’s wishful thinking that thoughts of Christmas in July will make it seem cooler (yes, wishful thinking!)  Today’s project again uses the Lots of Cheer Stamp Set.  Since my first Christmas in July project was a card, I decided on a small gift packaging project.  An oval label stamped with the Lots of Cheer snowman packages embellishes the Kraft Pillow Box.  The pillow boxes make great gift packaging.  They are 5″ x 3″ and a package contains 10 boxes to use for gifts and goodies.

Christmas in July gift package

Below are the steps to create this quick and simple project.
  1. Use Real Red Classic Ink Pad and a Sponge Brayer to color the Kraft pillow box.  TIP: take the ink pad and pat it directly onto the pillow box.  Then use the sponge brayer to evenly distribute the ink on the pillow box.  Allow the ink to dry on the pillow box.
  2. While the pillow box dries, make the label.  Stamp the stack of presents onto a 3-1/2″ x 3″ piece of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Cut the shape using the large oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.
  3. Color the stamped image with Stampin’ Blends.  The light Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blend adds a hint of color along the outline edges of the presents.  Additional Stampin’ Blends colors on the project includes Call Me Clover (light & dark), Daffodil Delight (light & dark), Real Red (light & dark), Smoky Slate (light & dark) and Pumpkin Pie (dark).  If desired, use the Color Lifter to lighten the center area of the hat.
  4. With the Layering Ovals Dies, cut an oval from a 4″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Call Me Clover cardstock.  Layer the stamped image onto the oval using Snail Adhesive.
  5. Use the Banner Triple Punch to cut an angles tail on a 1″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Then, stamp the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Attach to the back of the oval label using Snail Adhesive.
  6. Open pillow box and add gift or treats.  Close ends and wrap a piece of Call Me Clover 1/8″ grosgrain ribbon around the box.  TIP: wrap so that the ends meet under where the label is to be placed.  Use Snail Adhesive to hold the attach the end of the ribbon to the pillow box.  
  7. Add the oval label to the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  TIP:  Due to the curvature of the box, it’s best to add the dimensionals to the center area of the box and add the label to the dimensionals versus adding the dimensionals directly to label before adding to the pillow box. 
  8. Tie a bow with the ribbon and add to top with mini-glue dot.
