Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Holiday Catalog Blog Hop! Sixteen of my online demonstrator friends have collaborated on this showcase of Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog. If you are joining me from Rhonda's blog the Stampin' Bunny with her awesome projects using Watercolor Winter, welcome, you know how this works. If not, you can go from my blog you can click to the next great product set by Debra with Evergreen at her blog Heartfelt Inspirations and from there to the next one and onward in a big ol' loop! First, check out my projects!
I am featuring the stamp set Scensational Season on page 6. Check out the bundle pricing for both the stamp set and the Holiday Collection Framelits set. I used both on my projects. Why fussy cut when you can Big Shot is one of my favorite stampin' mottos.
As you can see, I went a bit crazy with this set. I like things to coordinate, so once I got going, things just fell into place. The wreath is simply a wreath form wrapped in our waffle paper. I then glued cinnamon sticks onto it, added Cherry Cobbler seam binding with glue dots, made a bow, and then added the ornaments. I embossed in Cherry Cobbler and Wild Wasabi on the surface of the preformed ornaments that I bought last year at a local crafty store. Embossing solved the problem of ink smearing. I took out the yucky redish ribbon that came with the ornaments and replaced it with our Cherry Cobbler seam binding.
Likewise, the candle is just a dollar store candle wrapped in cardstock to which I glued cinnamon sticks. I wrapped it in the Gumball Green Sweater trim and added some images cut out with framelits. Easy and cute. A dynamic combination.
The basket o' goodies just came to me when I was buying the cinnamon sticks. At the counter at my local Amish store were these peppermint sticks. I imagined them with a little decoration and there it it is! I used the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch on the Snow Festival Designer Series paper. I punched two star holes with the Merry Minis Punch pack, threaded the cane through, and added the cut outs.
Finally, this card was an inspiration of mine. I wanted to use the framelits in a different way. I'll show details on Monday as to exactly how to do this. I used the Candlelight Christmas Speciality Designer Series paper, Crumb Cake, and Real Red on this card. I also added the sentiment from Petite Pairs from the Annual Catalog. Cute and fun.
