I cashed in my Stampin’ Up! Bonusses and bought some CSV with Flexpoint. All, so I could place a big order from the new Stampin’ Up! Autumn/Winter catalogue. As soon as my order arrived, I had to make some Christmas cards. The problem was, I didn’t know where to start.
Pine Tree & Feels like Frost
The “Feels Like Frost” DSP is one of my favorites from the new catalogue, so I started with one of the photo designs for the background and matted it with a piece of Seaside Spray Cardstock.
I also ordered the “Frosted Frames Dies” and die-cut the frame with leaves from Pretty Peacock Cardstock, but cut off the leaves from one side of the die-cut.
I used one of the silver sides of the DSP and die-cut the label. I first colored the berries with the Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends and than used my Seaside Spray Ink pad and swiped it over the paper to color the background.
For embellischements, I stamped (Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set) and punched out two Pine Trees (Pine Tree Punch).
The sentiment is from the Dutch Stamp Set “Knusse Kerst” (Itty Bitty Christmas).
A few Noble Peacock Rhinestones complete this card.
Gleaming “KERST” Card
Next, I had to use the Brightly Gleaming suite. I embossed a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock with the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder and swiped the new Celestial Copper Ink Pad over the raised parts of the embossed paper.
I cut a strip of the embossed paper and matted it on a So Saffron piece of cardstock. The cardbase is Thick Very Vanilla. To hide the edge of the embossed cardstock I used a piece of Old Olive/Pretty Peacock reversible ribbon.
On a piece of watercolor paper, I stamped all three baubles from the stamp set in versamark, and heat-embossed in copper. I used an aquapainter to color in the baubles in Pretty Peacock and Mango Melody and then punched them out with the Ornaments Punches. I adhered them to the card using some dimensionals.
The sentiment is a part of one of the stamps of the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. For the “KERST” I die-cut the letters from copper foil, using the “Hand-Lettered Prose Dies”. To give them some dimension, I adhered the letters to some fun foam. I colored some clear rhinestones with a dark Mango Melody blend and adhered them to the top of the baubles.
I love how colorful and different this christmas card is.
Feels Like Frost Gift Box
After these cards, I had to make a box. Again, I choose a pretty photo design from the Feels Like Frost DSP.
I made a lid out of this 6”x6” piece of paper. The matching box was made with a piece of 5 15/16” square Purple Posy Cardstock. The box measures 3” x 3” x 1 1/2”.
I made the bauble embellishment by sticking 5 punched out baubles together. I embossed the baubles in silver and colored them with an aquapainter in Seaside Spray and Highland Heather. I put some Silver metallic Thread behind the Baubles to make it look like an ornament you can hang on a tree.
Again the sentiment is from the “Itty Bitty Christmas”,
and the Faceted Dots are from the 2019-2021 in color pack.
Luckily, Christmas is still a few months away, so I have plenty of time to play with all the new products form the 2019 Autumn/Winter Catalogue.
