Holiday Catalog–Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas

Stampin’ Up! has released their new catalog and I hope you are enjoying crafting with some of the new products.  Today, I will start a series of blogs on some of the individual products and/or suites.  For today, I will be showcasing the Carols of Christmas Bundle.

The set (see above) comes with a variety of stamps with big bold greeting.  The matching thinlits have some images that match the stamps and some that you can add to your stamped images.  You can make entirely different cards from this set without anyone knowing you used the same set.  You can also use the border die all year round.  It adds such a nice detail to your cards.   The card also adds the ornaments, which you can die cut, and some rhinestones and ribbon.   Here is a card using the border die:

The set also comes with another big bold greeting Peace on Earth which is showcased in the card shown below.  Adding small details such as the poinsettias and rhinestones with some of the fabulous new striped ribbon finishes off the card.  Oh, and I can’t forget the Designer Series Paper, called Be Merry, which is actually in the Annual Catalog.  (I will list all products with their product number at the end of the post).

The next card is an entirely different look and uses die cut images.  The sky with the moon and the stars (highlighted with Gold Foil) truly sets the card apart than just having a blank space.  And this die can be used with many sets/cards and year round.  DSP is used again (Be Merry) for the trees which includes white specks for a look of snow.  DSP from the Naturally Eclectic pack is used for the background. The small deers are also  made using die cuts.  You can add any greeting you want to this card or leave the front blank and stamp the inside.  I used the Peace on Earth greeting for the inside.

CHRISTMAS IS COMING…

carolsxmas2017

Seems for me it’s never too early to start getting ready for Christmas.  Stampin’ Up! is going to release their Holiday Catalog on September 1, 2017.  In the meantime, The Carols of Christmas Bundle is being released early (8/1) so you can get a jump on making your Christmas cards.  There are some neat stamps and dies that make for a wow card yet you can go simple with this set of stamps because of the large greetings.

These two cards feature the Peace on Earth greeting.  They both also use the trees.  The one on the right is a shaker card and also uses the sky/moon/stars die on the top.  The one on the left is a fairly simple one which would be perfect for mass producing cards.

These two use the Deck the Halls greeting and the border  which is a real versatile die that could be used all year long.  The one on the left is a good idea for using the set with your family picture included.  Vellum cardstock is used for the top layer and can be picked up so your friends and family can see the picture more clearly.

Father’s Day, Graduation, Masculine cards

     

It’s been awhile since I posted but I am back with some cards.   These two use materials from the nail-it bundle from Stampin’ Up! This would include the hammer, designer paper (on right), the tools and the hexagon stamped with the same set.  The one on the left has designer paper that will be available June 1-it is called Wood Words.

These two also use products from the nailed it bundle.  The one on the right uses the 3-D Hexagon Embossing folder done with silver paper.  The greeting comes from the set Suite Sentiments and has greetings for many occasions.  It is still available until May 31.

These two cards are made with some older stamp sets but are great for masculine cards.  I used the “dragging” technique on the one on the left side.  I saw a similar card so I learned the technique.  I CASEd it.  The one on the right uses a background stamp and I shaded the edges on the card and it makes for a nice effect.

The card on the left, I again CASEd and I used the Playful Background set to get the camouflage look.  This stamp set is available now and will carry over to the new Annual Catalog.  The card on the right uses some designer paper which is retiring.  I stamped directly on the dsp using the Wetlands Stamp Set which is also retiring after May 31, 2017.

One last card for today, a graduation card.  I used a combination of various materials, some you may already have.

Thank you for reading my post.  Don’t forget the retiring products are gone after May 31.  But the good news is there are a whole bunch of new products coming out in the catalog effective June 1, 2017. Here is a link to my on-line store: http://darleneseitz.stampinup.net.  You can see all the new products and carried over products there on June 1, around 12MT.

TWIST POP-UP VALENTINE’S CARD

Here are pictures of a Twist Pop-Up card that I made for Valentine’s day.  It was really fun to make and they are so popular right now.

The panels are 2 1/4″ and decorated with various StampinUp products such as die cuts, stamps and designer series paper from our new Sending Love Suite (small envelope with insert, stamped image saying Happy Valentine’s Day and dsp & ribbon on the card base.) from our occasions catalog. Also used was the Sunshines Wishes Thinlet dies (the heart on the front and word love, which coordinates with the stamp set of the same name) which is in our Annual Catalog.  Another great set I used was the Blooming Love Stamp Set (the fancy heart on one of the panels, which also has a matching die set called Blooming Heart) which is also in our annual catalog.  One last product used from our annual catalog was the Hearts & Stars Decorative Mask (first panel on the left).

The card base is 4 1/4″ by 11″ and Real Red was used along with a black mat and Whisper White.  Real Red and Black Ink was also used.  We have inks, paper, ribbon, embellishments, markers and DSP that coordinate in color and design for the 50 colors that we have.

If you would like to try your hand at making this card and need directions, please leave a comment on this page and I will send you some.  For those of you that would like a copy of the catalogs mentioned (and you do not currently have a StampinUp demonstrator) you can also leave a comment or email me at darstz@hotmail.com.  If you would like to place an order for any of the items, please visit my online store at darleneseitz.stampinup.net.

I will end with two last Valentine’s cards made with the Sending Love Suite of product.

Happy Crafting,

January 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit

20170122_224428120170122_1908021

January Paper Pumpkin Kit, Adoring Arrows, were these cute treat bags.  There was enough supplies to make 24 bags.  The kit included everything you need to complete them excluding scissors.  A full set of stamps, ink spot, adhesives, metallic thread and all the paper material to make the bags and arrows.  The kit is such a great deal and comes with instructions and there is a You Tube video on how to make the project.  Sometimes it’s cards, banners, wreath, treat bags/holders and who knows what it will be from month to month.

You can buy the kit two ways.  One way is a prepaid subscription where you can buy 1 month, 3 months, 6 month or 12 months.  Right now StampinUp is running a special on the 3 month subscription for $55 in lieu of $59.  To sign up for a subscription just go to this link http://darleneseitz.stampinup.net and click on Shop then Paper Pumpkin.  Also when you purchase at least a 3 month subscription, you’ll receive a free item of your choice from our Sale-A-Bration catalog.  This deal will last until March 31, 2017.   In fact, you can receive a free item for every $50. that you spend.  Please see my blog regarding SAB, here is the link in case you want to check it out: https://stampincardsncrafts.com/2016/12/29/2017-occasions-catalog-sale-a-bration/  .You can also purchase the kit on a month to month basis, for this you can sign up at http://www.paperpumpkin.com.  Be sure to pick me as your demonstrator (Darlene Seitz number 2096764).

If you do not want to make the entire craft, you can usually make some cards with the materials (or if you have left over material).  These are the cards I made from some of the material.  I did add some of my own materials.  But, if you are an active Paper Pumpkin subscriber with me, I will send you some additional materials, pictures and instructions to make some cards that I have created.
