We are coming up on the most wonderful time of the year, aren’t we?!! And what better time to join my friends the Stampin’ Addicts in a hop to show you some of the best of the Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! If you don’t know the Stampin’ Addicts, we are a dedicated group of stampers who love Stampin’ Up products. If you just came over from the awesome Yapha Mason, I just know you loved her projects with Mingle All The Way! She always shows the most lovely things! If you are just starting here, all you have to do is click your way around using the buttons and links at the bottom of each post.
When I first got this year’s Holiday Catalog, the set that spoke to me the loudest was The Newborn King. Something about that little nativity and the super cool trees make me so happy!
My first card for you today focuses right on that lovely nativity scene. I chose this watercolor look to highlight the Holy Family. The light coming from within the stable and a little twinkle on the star are there to show the significance of the event. Some Gold Foil adds a bit of shine on the border.
My next card also has gold but it becomes a highlight of the card! For this one, I stamp and emboss the whole scene in gold and frame it with a layer cut with the Apothecary Accents Framelits. If you click to enlarge the picture, you can see the shimmer from the Shimmery White Card Stock.
For my last card, I am showing you a faux stain glass look. More gold embossing and White Vellum Card Stock create the foundation for this elegant card. Want to know how to make it?? I want to show you!! I’ll be back on Monday with a video on exactly how to color this and how to create this card! I’m super excited to share!
Now see….you love this set too, don’t you?! With the details on the stamp, you can keep the rest of the card clean. Perfect for techniques and mailable cards!
Make sure you come back to see me on Monday for all the techniques on the cards. Now off to see the fabulous Tina Adams and her projects with Christmas Bauble! Until Monday….hope you have a great weekend!
