Check out my card for the next SUO Challenge: Favorite holiday catalog items. Learn how to use spritzing to color your designer series paper. It's a fun technique to try out.
Seasonal Chums Mobile Ornaments
The Seasonal Chums Bundle from Stampin' UP makes cute mobile ornaments. Glitter makes the snow in the bottom. Add a lovely bow and greenery to dress up the glass ball.
Washi Winter Wonderland
The Colorful Seasons Bundle is definitely one of my favorite things from the Annual Catalog. I decided to use the winter themed die to create an unusual combination of snowflakes using Washi tape.
Most people really don't know what to do with Washi tape other than to hold dies in place on your big shot. It really can be a versatile element in scrapbooking and card making. It is a simple way to add pattern and color. But did you know that you can stick it down to a piece of whisper white card stock in any pattern you like, and then place your die over it and cut it on the big shot?
Father Christmas Tag
The traditional colors of the Be Merry DSP by Stampin' UP add to the Christmas cheer of the tag. To get the layered look of the tag, I used the Lots of Labels framelits. Santa was cut out with the smaller size one, the DSP was the next largest and finally, the largest was cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock.
I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out with the smallest of the framelits and then sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.
This Santa shaker card is so jolly and ready to celebrate the season of joy!
Swirly Snowman CASE
"CASE"ing, is taking an idea and adding your own flair to it.
The snowman body is cut out on the Big Shot using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and the precision base plate. His carrot nose is created with a scrap of Pumpkin Pie paper and the larger wing shape from the same thinlit set.
So many of the versions that I saw on Pinterest had no arms or face. I couldn't help but put the Santa hat on his head with the Jolly Hat punch!
Fab Friday 97
These happy Holly Berries have a vintage feel to them. A color palette with a vintage feel seemed appropriate. They are featured in Fab Friday's blog challenge for this week. A few of the new products in the Holiday Catalog from Stampin' UP are also featured on this card.
The background paper is from the Candy Cane Lane DSP pack. It also has an embossed background done in Real Red using the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing folder.
