Today’s card, Snowflakes are Falling, is one of the projects from the recent card class. Products featured are the Snow Is Glistening Stamp Set, Snowfall Thinlits Dies and the White Velvet Paper. All items are a Limited Time Offer for November or While Supplies Last and the White Velvet Paper supply is already Sold Out! You’re going to love this set and another benefit is the versatility if offers.
Steps to recreate this Snowflakes are Falling card:
Select three sizes of snowflakes and Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Pad to randomly stamp the 5″ x 3-3/4″ Night of Navy cardstock layer. Allow to dry for a few minutes and attach to the Foil-Edged card base. You’ll find that the Night of Navy layer fits perfectly to allow the foil to create a frame. Time Saving Tip: Use a block size D or larger so you can place all three snowflake stamps on the block for stamp the three sizes randomly at the same time.
For cutting the three different sizes of snowflakes, choose the dies from the Snowfall Thinlits and use Whisper White cardstock.
Stamp sentiment onto strip of 1/2″ x 3″ Whisper White cardstock using Night of Navy Stampin’ Pad and adhere to 3-1/4″ x 3/4″ Silver Foil strip. Add to card using dimensionals.
Adhere die cut snowflakes to the card using dots of Tombo multipurpose glue and to add additional dimension, just glue around the snowflake centers.
Finally, complete card by adding Basic Rhinestones to center of each Whisper White snowflake so it enhances the snowflakes.
Because this is a limited time only offer, make sure to place your order before the products are gone. Remember, the white paper is already sold out. The Snow is Glistening stamp set and Snowfall thinlits dies will provide you with unlimited winter craft creations. Also, the coordinating Happiness Surrounds Photopolymer Stamp Set works well with the products for more creative options.
There are a few products backordered from the Holiday Catalog. Unfortunately, these products have exceeded Stampin’ Up!’s expectations and supplies. Therefore, there are a large number of backorders. Because backorders will take weeks to fulfill, Stampin’ Up! has made the decision to shut these items off effective immediately. The orders that are currently backordered will be fulfilled when the new supply arrives.
Consequently, the products cannot be sent from the manufacturer in time for the holidays, so these item numbers will not be reactivated.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. In order to provide you with another holiday option, Stampin’ Up! has an idea. They will bring back the Dashing Along DSP (item 149903). This holiday paper is from our promotion last month. It’s beautiful and a traditional Christmas paper that has a festive feel. Coordinating colors are Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, and Whisper White.
Although, there is no fulfillment date for the current back order of products. So, all backorders for Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper, Festive Farmhouse Elements, and Santa’s Workshop Enamel Elements will be filled as soon as they arrive. You can still order any of the other products from the Holiday catalog.

This week in lieu of CASE the Catalog, I am sharing a project that it being made at my Stampin’ Bingo Event – Halloween Hand Sanitizer Holders. While I am a huge fan of the pocket size hand sanitizers from Bath & Body Works, the official terminology is Anti-Bacterial Hand Gels. It’s much easier to call them Hand Sanitizers. It probably simplifies it for all of us. It is wonderful that they “theme” the products for the different holidays.
Halloween Hand Sanitizer
Product labels are designed to coordinate with Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers (DSP). SO, as you notice in the photos, the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper works perfectly with the different Halloween themed hand sanizitizers. Also, the box design comes from a post from a couple of years ago by Erica Cerwin at Pink Buckaroo Designs. It’s perfect for showcasing the DSP and the boxes can be assembled quickly.
Below you can see how well the Bath & Body Works product coordinates!
Basic Black cardstock is used for the box base and DSP that coordinates with the Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer. Therefore, it was used to decorate the box base. In addition, the black bat was cut using the Spooky Bats Punch. The cat, from the Toil & Trouble DSP, and a stamped ghost were cut using the Cauldron Framelits Dies. Stamp and cut the ghost and sponge around the edge using Gorgeous Grape Classic Ink Pad. Cut your sentiment with the 1 1/4″ punch.
Black Cardstock works well considering the Black Glimmer Paper is discontinued.
Additionally, Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels become the bat’s eyes while Clear Basic Rhinestonse are colored to add a finishing touch to the box featuring the cat. Color clear rhinestones with Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. Also, be sure to let it dry for a minute before transferring to the project. Ask me how I know!!!
Finally, Black 1/8″ Cord finishes off the sentiment featuring the ghost.
CASE the Catalog will return but that I have lots of other projects to share but if you have questions regarding a specific project in either the Annual or the Holiday Catalog, don’t hesitate to contact me for details.
Happy Friday! This week I am sharing another of the recent class projects, a First Frost Baker’s Box. The Baker’s Boxes are a great size for adding a treats or other small gifts. One of my favorite embellishments for boxes is to make a belly band and add embellishments so naturally, I decided to use one for this project. For embellishment, the First Frost Bundle coordinates beautifully with the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP).
To decorate the Baker’s Box, cut a 1-3/4″ wide strip of Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create the belly band. Since the DSP will not fit completely around the box, cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock using the large Layering Ovals Framelit to connect the DSP and to act as a base for the embellishments.
The stamped floral uses the Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Markers to color the stamp, then “huff” by blowing your breath over the inked stamp to keep the ink moist and stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock. Cut using the Floral Bouquet Framelits. Also use the Framelits to cut Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Vellum images. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock using the large oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Stamp “enjoy” (from the Takeout Treats Stamp Set) using Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin’ Pad on the right side of the oval. Attach to the Blackberry Bliss oval on the baker’s box belly band. Layer the cut embellishments onto the left side of the oval. Finish by adding a doubled Linen Thread bow and scattering Basic Rhinestone Jewels around the paper.

Everyday Label Punch (to cut notches on edges of the Whisper White front piece)
CASE the Catalog Steps:
Use the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF to texture emboss the card front and then using Sponge Dauber lightly sponge the front using Crumb Cake ink.
Stamp the milk can image and the floral spray onto the Whisper White card front using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – NOTE: stamp off center toward right as shown on sample.
Color the image using the blends. Swish Crumb Cake below the milk can. You may spritz color below the milk can or add dots (as I did) using the tip end of the Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend. Stamp sentiment and color with Cajun Craze stampin’ blend, then fussy cut to add to front of milk can.
Assemble card by layering the Country Lane DSP and adding the Chicken Wire Element pieces at an angle ensuring that pieces will extend past the stamped image layer.
Add the stamped image layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
