2019 Holiday Catalog Feed

Traditional Christmas Ornaments

This has to be one of my most favorite suites in the 2019 Holiday Catalog! The ornament stamps are so pretty and I LOVE the fact that there are 2 (TWO) punches.  I know punches take us space, but these are definitely worth it. 

My other favorite is the Designer Series Paper called Brightly Gleaming.  The foil accents are gorgeous!  If you are a scrapbook person, you are going to want a couple of packs.

The entire product suite keeps in the same color scheme with Pretty Peacock, Night of Navy and Mossy Meadow AND Copper!  From the paper and ribbon, to the little star elements.  Cards and other projects will come together quick and easy.

My card base is Night of Navy that is the standard 5-1/2 x 8-1/2" folded in half.

Top half layer of Very Vanilla is cut 5-1/8 x 2-1/2"

Bottom half layer of Brightly Gleaming designer paper is cut 5-1/8 x 2"

The Very Vanilla is slightly larger so you can apply glue to the bottom edge and adhere Brightly Gleaming over top.  Wrap the "Merry Christmas" Very Vanilla Copper ribbon around before adhering to card base. 

Ornaments are colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol marks.  

I think I have found my Christmas card already for this year.  I better get going on those.

12 Weeks of Christmas (Week 2)

Hello everyone.  My goodness where did the time go this past week? 

I did my Week 2 Facebook Live last week.  I am still learning to navigate, and trying not to be nervous.  It is amazing what happens to my brain once that camera is going.  

Here are my two projects that I made 'Live'.  This one was my favorite because of the New Ice Stampin' Glitter (adhered using the new Shimmery Crystal Effects)!  Pictures are not doing it justice so lets look at a close up first:

Project two, featured the MERRY MOOSE Bundle.  Oh how cute is he !!!  The outline of his body is stamped in Early Espresso and the body filler stamp is done with Crumb Cake. The best part, the moose is a punch.

The front piece of Whisper White is 5-1/4 x 4" and stamped with the Birch background stamp in Crumb Cake.  I used the Oval Dies to cut out the window and the used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere to card. 

Whisper White card stock for tree background is 5 x 3-3/4"

Check out my Alternative Card

Did you see my project from last week?  It was titled Come To Gather and Give Thanks... if not SEE IT HERE .  It features the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper, perfect for fall.  It was my submission for a Holiday Catalog Card Challenge! 

So you may be asking, why did I do an alternate project?  Well, I wanted my class members to make the card but I did not have enough of the Wood elements (Tags & Feathers) used on the original card so I swapped over to the Harvest Hello Bundle instead.  Isn't that pumpkin cool?  I punched the pumpkin out of the New Mercury Glass Acetate.  This stuff is so cool and it comes in two designs in the pack.  Below is more of a crackle.

Here is a close up on the Mercury Glass Acetate...   We punched a pumpkin from our mat card stock Pear Pizzazz and adhered it behind the acetate.

I hope you have a chance to get some of this Acetate and use it on one of your projects. 

TIP:  you can color the back of the acetate with your Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  Just pick a color that coordinates with your project. 

Reminder:  September 30, 2019 is last day for BOGO Designer Paper sale.  BUY 3 GET 1 FREE.     Don't miss out on a Free pack of paper. 

Be sure to check out my previous post to see all the card dimensions.

Have you heard of NAMI

Have you heard of NAMI?  I am completely in awe of this organization; with what they stand for, offer and do.  This makes my card all the more special.  

I held my monthly card class this past weekend and chose to use the stamp set called "Nature's Beauty".  To me, it is just a simple and serene stamp set with wonderful drawings of forest animals.  In most catalogs, Stampin' Up! offers one set to donate profits to a charitable organization.  And the 2019 Holiday catalog is no exception with this set. 

As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, every Tuesday, Stampin' Up! releases a weekly update to us.  They share inside information, give sneak peaks, or advise whatever may be happening within the company and needs to be shared.  (Good reason to join my team to get all the inside scoop).  In today's updates, they finally announced the list of organizations benefiting from each and every sale of the "Nature's Beauty" stamp set, and in the U.S. it is an organization called NAMI.  

NAMI stands for the National Alliance on Mental Illness.  Please take a couple of minutes and check out their website.  It is a wonderful organization that does so much good.  I was surprised to find so many local branches in my back yard.  Did you know mental illness has or will touch every single one of us?  If it is the one thing you can do, it is to educate yourself and help support this amazing organization and order the Nature's Beauty stamp set with me today.

So it is 'with gratitude' that I just happened to make this card and I share my gratitude to Stampin' Up supporting NAMI!

PicsArt_09-24-01.03.08

My full supply list is below, showing product used to make this card, but here are the dimensions:

Very Vanilla card front (5-3/8 x 4-1/8) was embossed with the Woodlands folder. 

I used Sponge Daubers and Balmy Blue ink for my sky.  The tree and weed sprig are stamped in Mossy Meadow, grass in Old Olive, the deer stamped in Memento black and then colored with Soft Suede Blends (light and dark).  The Smokey Slate Blends were used to highlight the shadows under the tree, weeds, and deer.  

The deer is stamped on Very Vanilla that is 2-1/2 x 3-3/4.  Soft Suede card stock was used to mat the deer piece and cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  

I hope you enjoyed this post and also can take a minute to learn about NAMI.
