Festival of Trees & Good Greetings

Hi Everyone,

     Here is another sample using the Festival of Trees set along with a new set that you can earn for free, Good Greetings.  Now through October 31st if you host a workshop or class that totals $300 dollars before shipping and handling and tax you automatically earn this set for free.  It's a great set with a great font for all of the words.  I used the Merry & Bright on this sample.  The background of this card is Silver Foil card stock that was embossed using the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder.  It was my first time trying out the foil card stock with the big shot and I love how it came out.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets:  Festival of Trees, Good Greetings
Ink: Encore Silver
Card Stock: Whisper White, Silver Foil

Festival of Trees

Hi Everyone,
     New day so a new sample.   I love all of the different trees in Festival of Trees and it seems to coordinate so well with the All is Calm DSP.   Pear Pizazz is not a color I have used before, in fact I had to order it when I ordered the All is Calm DSP, but its a really nice soft green.  I think I will be picking it up quite a bit this holiday season.

Stamp Sets:  Festival of Trees. Endless Wishes
Ink: Pear Pizazz
Card Stock: Pear Pizazz, Whisper White, All is Calm DSP
Accessories: Oval Framelits, Tree Punch,  Decorative Label Punch, 5/8" Satin Ribbon in Whisper White

Wondrous Wreath

Hi Everyone,
     I think that this might be my favorite stamp set out of the whole Holiday Catalog.  I just love it!  It's a photopolymer set with 9 different stamps in it. The wreath stamp is actually 3 different stamps that you use to layer your colors.  Stampin' Up made it so easy to line up with a tab at the top of each of the wreath stamps.  I used the matching framelits to "cut" the wreath out.  The Joy is included with the framelits as well as a Noel.  Can't wait until you all can see the catalog in person!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Hardwood, Wondrous Wreath
Ink: Pear Pizzaz, Garden Green, Real Red
Card Stock: Garden Green, Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Wonderful Wreath Framelits

Mingle All The Way

HI Everyone,
     Here is another card using some stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog.  I "made" the background paper by using Stampin' Ups Back to Black DSP and Blendabilities.  I used the medium Pumpkin Pie Blendabitlies marker to color in all of the white on the DSP so it would coordinate better with the card.  The saying is from a new set called Mingle All The Way and the pumpking is from Fall Fest which has matching framelits!  Love it!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Mingle All The Way, Fall Fest
Ink: Black Stazon, Memento Black, Pumpkin Pie

Striped Scallop Thinlet

Hi Everyone,

     I have one more sample to show you using the Striped Scallop Thinlet.  It's the same design, but this time I used the Brushed Silver card stock and Silver Glimmer Paper.  This is my favorite one so far!  I did have to use a shim when I ran it through the Big Shot to make sure that it cut all the way through.  I just love how this one turned out.  The stamp is embossed in silver which is hard to tell in the picture.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Fabulous Four
Ink: Versamark
Card Stock: Whisper White, Brushed Silver, Silver Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Apothecary Framelits, Silver Embossing Powder, 5/8" Satin Ribbon in Silver, Striped Scallop Thinlet

Striped Scallop Thinlet

Hi Everyone,
     I thought I would share the other sample I made using the Striped Scallop Thinlet.  I used the Blackberry Bliss on this one and I think I like it even better than the first sample I shared: Striped Scallop Framelit.  I really love the Blackberry Bliss, but boy does the ink get all over everything.  It does stain the photopolymer stamps as well.  If anyone has any ideas on how to stop that, I would love it if your would share.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Fabulous Four
Ink: Blackberry Bliss
Card Stock: Blackberry Bliss, Park Lane DSP
Accessories: Striped Scallop Thinlet, Apothecary Thinlets, 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch
