Holiday Catalog Products 2017-2018

Ready for Christmas bundle meets Halloween

Mr. Spider created with the Ready for Christmas stamp set and Christmas Staircase die set.

 

The first time I saw the Ready for Christmas stamp set, I saw the garland stamp as a hairy spider leg.  Please don't ask why.  I don't know why.  But I ordered this bundle because I had to make today's card!

 

It came out just as I envisioned!  That is not always the case!  Often those crazy visions turn into epic fails.  But I love how he turned out!  And now that I have that hairy spider leg out of my mind, I can move forward, and create some Christmas cards with this bundle, because it is amazing!!

 

Mr. Spider's details.  He is made with the Ready for Christmas bundle.

 

Tips to Recreate this Card:

  • the Pumpkin Pie card base is cut 5 1/5" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4"
  • the background is Spooky Night designer series paper cut 5" x 3 3/4", on a layer of 5 1/8" x 3 7/8" Basic Black cardstock.

 

For the spider, I stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder so he had texture, and stood out better on the basic black cardstock.  

 

To make the Legs

  • stamp and heat emboss 4 pieces of garland, than die cut using the coordinating Christmas Staircase die set
  • embossed 4 more legs using the mirror-image stamping technique, and die cut those as well (the die does not cut mirror images, so line up as best you can) 

To make the Body:

  • stamp and heat emboss the large christmas tree
  • using the Starburst punch, punch one piece
  • glue him all together using glue dots and mini dimensionals to make him look 3-D
  • using the size of your choice, add 2 googlie eyes

 

What do you think?  Can you make a fall or Halloween card using this bundle?

Count Your Blessings with Colored Veneer Embellishments

Count My Blessings stamp set and colored Touches of Nature Elements veneer embellishments

 

I love this sentiment.  It's from the Count My Blessings stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog. I will use this a ton this holiday season!

 

This card also uses the Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder, from the Annual Catalog, to create the background, and the Painted Harvest stamp set for the leaves, which are punched out with the new Leaf punch.  I dressed it up a little with gold glimmer paper, and Year of Cheer metallic washi tape!

 

I also added a Touches of Nature Element.  I love veneer embellishments, but I struggle with how plain they sometimes look on a project.

In come my ink pads!

 

Did you know you can color them to coordinate with any project?  

 

Yup!  You sure can!  And it is super easy!

 

Coloring Wood Veneer Embellishments

 

This adds a perfect touch to any project!

 

I love getting into fall color combinations!  Here is the one I used on today's project:

Quick & Easy Carols of Christmas Card

Carols of Christmas stamp set, Be Merry designer series paper and Quilted Christmas ribbon

 

Let's face it -- sometimes you want a quick & easy card.

 

The large sentiments in the new Carols of Christmas stamp set lend themselves to quick cards.  Now, don't get me wrong, there are some great stamps in this set to make amazing cards, but today, I wanted quick!

 

Be Merry designer series paper


I busted out my Be Merry designer series paper featured in the Annual catalog, for a traditional Christmas color combination, and added some gold glimmer paper to dress it up.

 

The Quilted Christmas 1/4" ribbon from the Holiday catalog was the perfect ribbon choice to pull my colors together.

 

The gold enamel shapes are a must with gold glimmer paper!

 

Quick Tip: Adding an embellishment, like enamel shapes, rhinestones, or pearls, can quickly pull a card together.

Dynamic Duo glimmer paper and metallic shapes

 

To recreate this project:

  • Cut a Cherry Cobbler card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4"
  • Cut a piece of Be Merry DSP to 3" x 4 1/4"
  • Cut 1 gold glimmer scalloped square
  • Cut a Whisper White square smaller than scalloped glimmer square (for sentiment)
  • Cut a 4 1/4" strip of gold glimmer paper with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch

Sneak Peak: 2017 Holiday Catalog Painted Harvest Stamp set and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper with Embossing Paste

Hi Friends--

 

Loving the Holiday catalog!  I have started crafting with new catalog products, and thought I would share a little peak of what you have to look forward to!  This card is loaded with new products!  Can you pick them out?

Painted Harvest stamp set, Leaf Punch, Painted Autumn designer series paper, Everyday Label Punch, Pick a Pumpkin stamp set, all from the 2017 Holiday Catalog!

This product suite, Painted Autumn, is one of my favorites in the entire catalog!  When fall comes, working with fall colors become my favorites!  The Painted Autumn designer series paper is gorgeous!  Hand painted fall patterns with beautiful watercolor patterns on the B sides.  It will be hard to pick which side to use!  Want to see it for yourself?  You may still pre-order a paper share from me, and it includes 1/4 of a pack to create with!

 

For this card, I layered on the details, and for extra interest, added some of the awesome new Embossing Paste from the annual catalog.  This is so fun, and really easy to use!  It dries fast, and is flexible.  It can be colored, too!

 

Painted Autumn Suite with Embossing Paste, applied with Pattern Party Masks

To recreate this card, cut a card base of Cajun Craze cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at  4 1/4".  Cut a piece of Early Espresso cardstock 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".  Choose your favorite pattern of Painted Autumn dsp, and cut to 3 3/4" x 5".  Using the Embossing Paste, and Pattern Party Decorative Masks, add a layer of embossing paste to the dsp.  Allow to dry, than adhere to the Early Espresso layer.  Adhere this layer to your card front using dimensionals.  Using the Painted Harvest stamp set, stamp 2 sets of leaves with Lemon Lime Twist ink on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. Punch out with the Leaf punch.  Stamp sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  With the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set, stamp a pumpkin of your choice in Pumpkin Pie ink over the sentiment.  Punch out with the Everyday Label punch.  Punch a second label from Early Espresso cardstock.  Cut the espresso label in half length-wise, and adhere behind sentiment label to create a layered look.  Layer leaves and trim of choice to back of sentiment, and adhere to your card front with dimensionals.  I chose the 1/4" Copper Trim from the annual catalog on my card, but linen thread, burlap ribbon or copper thread would work well, too.  To finish off your card, use Early Espresso ink again, and stamp a sentiment on the inside of your card.

 

I thought the colors in this card were beautiful together, and were taken from the dsp:
