Stampin' Up! My Favourite New Product Bundle

Blog-logo

Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with other ladies from the Art With Heart Team. We are all showing you out favourite bundles from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. Bundles make creating a breeze, because of the perfect coordination. It's a bonus that you get 10% off by bundling the products together too. There are 24 bundles in the catalogue so ask us about them, or for a catalogue today!

You may have come to my blog from Monika O'Neill. Blog hops are full circles, so start blog hopping here and and the end of my post (and everyone else's) there is a link to the next post. I've also got a list of all 15 blog hop participants at the end in case of broken links.

I am focusing on the oh so eclectic bundle from page 133 of the catalogue.
Oh-so
The diamond shaped framelit is my favourite and I loved using it on the outside and the inside of my card tonight. Otherwise my card is almost a complete CASE from the catalogue. I couldn't help it, I loved the design and had to tweak it a little to make it more me. I even added some seed beads to the centres of my diamonds for a little bit of added extra bling.

Tip for adhering the leftover diamond pieces. Create yourself a template out of cardstock and store it with the dies. It helps you line the diamond shapes up perfectly and holds them in place while the adhesive dries.

Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas featuring Holly Berry Happiness

The Heart of Christmas
Welcome back for another week of the Heart of Christmas cards. This week I have made two almost identical cards only one has cardstock and the bow builder punch vs ribbon for the "ribbon" on the present. Todays card is a no fail one I have made many time overs and that is to make a "present" of the card front. It is even quicker if you use DSP compared to stamping with the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set which is a 2 step stamp set. 
As usual, there is step by step instructions at the end of the blog post.

Card 1 - with bow builder punch [my favourite version out of the two because I think the ribbon I used, (which can be found on the clearance rack,) is a little to skinny]

I forgot to take a photo of the inside of the card today because I was concentrating on getting one of each the different fronts. I will take one of the inside when the weather is good.

Step by step instructions to create you own card (inches are in bold)
If desired ink all edges of cardstock/DSP etc. using coordinating inkpads and sponge daubers

1. Cut always artichoke cardstock 20cm x 14.5cm (7 7/8" x 5 6/8") & score at 10cm (4") and set aside
2. Cut crumb cake cardstock 9.5cm x 14cm (3 3/4" x 5 1/2") and cut pear pizzazz 9cm x 13.5cm (3 1/2" x 5 5/8") and set aside
3. Cut very vanilla cardstock 1.3cm x 8.5cm (1/2" x 3 1/4") and stamp "Best wishes for the season" in memento ink on the cardstock strip and set aside
4. Stamp "To" from "Oh, what fun" stamp set on the back of the corrugated elements tag and set aside
5. Stamp line image of holly leaves from "Holly Berry Happiness" in always artichoke ink randomly over the pear pizzazz cardstock
6. Stamp the 2 step stamping holly leaves (that coordinates with the stamp used in step 5) in pear pizzazz ink filling in the line images
7. Using a real red stampin' write marker, draw red dots randomly near the holly leaves
8. Using ribbon [or 1cm (6/16") real red strips of cardstock] adhere in the top right hand corner with the ribbon or cardstock crossing over to create a "T" shape
9. Thread linen thread through the tag from step 4 and adhere in place so that the "bow" will cover the knot when adhered. I also place a small amount of adhesive under the tag so it doesn't swing around
10. Tie a bow (or use the bow builder punch with real red paper) and adhere over the "T" you created it in step 8
11. Adhere the pear pizzazz cardstock onto the crumb cake cardstock and mount onto the always artichoke card. Finish off the card by adhering the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner using stampin' dimensionals

Stampin' Up! In Color ATC's

Each month I am joining fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators in my team and we are making ATC's based on a theme. 10 themes for the 10 years that I will have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for (in September 2017). This months theme was "In Colors" and I managed to use all 10 of the in colours when paired with the remarkable you stamp set. It seems to be a favourite for the past few ATC's I've made.

Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas featuring Christmas Pines

Welcome back for week 3 of the Heart of Christmas cards.

I love that not only is this a fun playful Christmas card but the tree image and textured packaging paper would also make a great ATC or gift tag.

8. Cut a 1.3cm (1/2") strip of soft suede cardstock approx. 2.5cm in length (1") for the tree trunk
9. Adhere the tree trunk and triangle tree onto the stamped packaging paper background and adhere onto whisper white cardstock an even distance from the card top and left/right sides
