Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, my peeps! Today is a big day in Stampin’ Up! land!
We demonstrators have started ordering from the new 2018 Holiday Catalog! We had a few folks join our team during the Ink Pad Joining Special – and I know they’re looking forward to their first big orders as Demonstrators (and counting the 20% discount staying in their pockets!). I’m also betting there are some folks who are thinking of joining today – and filling their Starter Kits with the 2018 Holiday Catalog goodies!
Yes – that’s a real thing!
The other big news is the arrival of the new Blended Seasons Bundle and another brand new set of Watercolor Pencils! I’ve got all the info below – including links to get the whole set for yourself!
My card today showcases the new bundle – and a little Under the Mistletoe DSP and maybe a couple of Pretty Pines. Take a look-see:
I started out with a piece of beautiful plaid paper from the Under the Mistletoe DSP, and matted it on Old Olive for the card front.
Next up, I cut a large label with the big die in the Stitched Season Framelits set (available as a bundle with the Blended Seasons stamp set or a al carte!) from Whisper White. I inked up the pretty holly image from Blended Seasons in Old Olive and stamped it twice – once at the top and once at the bottom of the label.
I colored the image with my Old Olive Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends (leaves) and my Cherry Cobbler Watercolor Pencil (yes – that’s one of the colors in the new Watercolor Pencils set!). Then I popped the label over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I inked the sentiment from Blended Seasons in Versamark Ink and stamped it on a strip of Early Espresso card stock. Then I sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I cut an angle on each end – then added some faux stitches with a non-SU! White Gel Pen.
I adhered the sentiment strip over the label with Liquid Glue.
With my Pretty Pines Thinlits, I cut a couple of boughs in Old Olive and one in Mossy Meadow, then I adhered them to the end of the sentiment with Liquid Glue.
Using a Glue Dot, I added a loop of new Gold 1/8″ Cord. Over that is a Double-Loop Billie Moan bow in Linen Thread. And that was it for the card front!
On the inside, I simply added a strip of plaid Under the Mistletoe DSP that I’d matted on Old Olive to the bottom of a Whisper White panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Blended Seasons holly bough – this time I used Watercolor Pencils for all the coloring – Old Olive from the original set and Cherry Cobbler from the new set…
…and on the envelope flap I added more of the Under the Mistletoe DSP.
Et Voila! I really love this limited-time bundle. Blended Seasons has images and sentiments to suit several seasons (hence the name?!?) and the Stitched Seasons dies are super – who doesn’t love “stitched” dies!? Of course, you know I love this Under the Mistletoe DSP and Pretty Pines Thinlits. I hope you like!
Please get on this bundle right away, y’all – it’s only available while supplies last OR until the end of the month – whichever comes first! So….you’re going to want to get on it quick to ensure that you get them for yourself. Just a note – SU! tells us that the Watercolor Set MIGHT be in an upcoming catalog, but….are you really willing to risk that? 😉
