Remember to click on through this week’s CTC crew to see plenty of inspirational projects that the crew have created for you – there’s a full list on the CTC blog page if you get lost along the way.
It’s been an exciting week in the Stampin’ Up! year with the launch of the Holiday Catalogue on Thursday. So this week we change our focus from the Annual Catalogue to now take our inspiration from the Holiday Catty’s pages – full of gorgeous products and samples. We’re starting with the super sweet goodies of the Candy Cane Lane Product Suite on pages 4 – 7.
And what a great suite to start the catalogue with – it incorporates two of my favourite things – Christmas and baking!
I’ve taken my inspiration from two projects – the teddy bear card on page 6 provided the layout while the tag on the craft box on page 7 provided the stamp choice.
You can see that I decided not to make a Christmas card – so instead I’ve incorporate some of the Halloween products into a gift card. It’s easy to overlook the Halloween products as not relevant to us in New Zealand – but they are really versatile as I hope you can see and are not limited to being used for Halloween projects.
The background coloured paper is from the Halloween Night Specialty DSP.
Like the original tag – I have used two of the stamps from the Yummy Little Christmas Stamp set and coloured onto the stamps directly with Stampin’ Write markers. This is one of my favourite techniques – it makes each stamp like having several different stamps depending on how you colour. I’ve used Old Olive and Perfect Plum on both the mixer and the sentiment – but have left the rolling-pin and it’s part of the sentiment off the lower stamp as I wasn’t making a Christmas card. In this catalogue there are three (3) pairs of Stampin’ Write Markers available to purchase – Pumpkin Pie & Old Olive, Real Red & Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green. This gives you another option for purchasing the markers – the complete set, by ‘colour collection” and now in pairs!
And those gorgeous embellishments are the Halloween Night Enamel Dots.
If you’re wondering where my colour choice came from – let’s peek inside …
What cute washi! Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Perfect Plum. It’s from the Halloween Night Designer Washi set – not scary at all!
I hope you enjoyed my card this week and that you are loving the new catalogue as much as I am. If you are in New Zealand and you haven’t received a copy of the catalogue – please message me. I’d love to share it with you!
