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.
