I know, not even October yet and Christmas is creeping into our lives. Or in the case of the Stampin' Up! Autumn Winter catalogue it is bringing Christmas to us with a resounding thud!
So many fantastic new seasonal products, harvest, halloween and christmas all in a fantastic 40 pages of gorgeous crafting goodies.
So as soon as my first order from the catalogue arrived I started making Christmas cards. Unfortunately I have been poorly... #stinkingrottencold so have been tucked up in bed feeling miserable and aching to get crafting.
Well here's one I prepared earlier!
Stampin' Up! rubber stamps are available in clear and wood mounted so you have the flexibility to stamp the way you like. In this case I chose clear mounted stamps to use with my set of Stampin Up clear blocks.
The Real Red mat was embossed using the Adorning Accents embossing folder from the Spring Mini - (Shhh but it will be available again in the new catalogue!) I stamped the tree and the reindeer on Whisper White, then punched them out using the Decorative Label punch, then sponged on the corresponding Chocolate Chip and Garden Green to "Distress" them. The December 25th was stamped again on Whisper White but instead of distressing it I used the 2-way glue pen, that enabled me to be more accurate when applying the adhesive, and added a bit of 'Bling' with Stampin' Glitter, Dazzling Diamonds.
The ribbon is the retiring Old Olive satin ribbon. I shall be sad to see the ribbon stock go but there are lots of new ribbons coming!
This final card for today uses the co-ordinating Merry Minis rubber stamp set and the punch set! How cute! I can never resist stamp sets or punches when they go together! Stampin' Up! always seem to create new products that are irrisistable! I used the 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" square punches to make the square mats, mounted them on a strip of patterned paper from the new Festival of Prints set and then punched the borders from co-ordinating Garden Green card stock. The sentiment is from Curly Cute and the end product is mounted on Cherry Cobbler card stock.
