CASEing Tuesday-Last of the Christmas Cards 2017

I hope you all had a great Christmas.   Here is this week’s CASEing Tuesday Card. 

It is based on the card shown on page 4 of the Holiday catalog.   

I made some changes in the colors and arrangement of the trees and banner but the design is basically the same.  The cards use the Bundle Christmas Quilt and several of the accessories shown on page 5 of the Holiday catalog.   They are:  Stitched Felt Embellishments, Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the  Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper.   This is a great set that can be used all year long. It is still available in my on-line store darleneseitz.stampinup.net.  

As always,  Happy Crafting

CASEing Tuesday Card for 12/19/2017

Here is this weeks card.   It is based off the card shown in the annual catalog on page 223 (top right corner).  I stayed pretty true to the design.  I used an old retired set but this could easily be made with the Good Tidings set still available from Stampin Up. I also used the two largest dies from the Lots of Labels framelits.  I can’t seem to stop making Christmas cards. 

Don’t forget to check out the retiring list and discounted items in my on-line store.   Also, the Clearance rack has been updated with new items.  Here is the link to my on-line store darleneseitz.stampinup.net.  

As always,  Happy Crafting,

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.
