Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Winter Holidays

Welcome to our December Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator has created projects with the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and July-December Mini-catalog products. You may have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. Below my card is a list of links to all of the participating bloggers.

My card features the Leaves of Holly Bundle (#159608)! Isn’t it beautiful? The card base is Gray Granite with a layer of Evening Evergreen and another layer of Boughs of Holly DSP. The holly leaves were stamped in Evening Evergreen on Basic White and then the second layer of stamping in Gray Granite. The holly leaf dies from the Holly Berry Dies (#159607). The berries were two-step stamped in Real Red and Cherry Cobbler, then die cut. The sentiment from the Leaves of Holly stamp set (#159601) was stamped in Evening Evergreen and die cut. A piece of White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon(#151326) was woven behind the sentiment to finish my card.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Giving Thanks

Welcome to our November Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is creating Thank You cards. You may have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. Below my card is a list of links to all of the participating bloggers.

My card features the Forever Fern cling stamp set (#152559)! The card base is Basic White with a layer of Blackberry Bliss and another layer of Basic White. On the top Basic White layer, I stamped branches in Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Sahara Sand. Sahara Sand splatters completed my stamping. Then I die cut some pieces from the Forever Flourishing Dies (#152714) in Gold Foil (#132622). I die cut a circle in Blackberry Bliss using the Stylish Shapes Dies (#159183) and heat embossed the sentiment from Flowers of Friendship cling stamp set (#155358) in white from the Basic Embossing Powders (#155554). A piece of Sahara Sand Twill ribbon from the Combo Pack (#158955) tucked behind the sentiment completed my card.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – July-December Mini-Catalog

Welcome to our September Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring projects created with products found in the fabulous July-December Mini-Catalog!

You may have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. She had a great project! My card features the fun Rustic Harvest 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (#159633) part of the Rustic Harvest Suite Collection (#159648). There are so many fun patterns in this big assortment of DSP!

The card base is Basic Black, an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet cut into quarters. I piece of the DSP is adhered to one panel and cut with the 4th from the largest Stitched Rectangle Die (#151820). I fussy cut another piece of the DSP to decorate the frame. Two more panels of Basic Black are scored and have two panels of DSP adhered to each. These are attached to the final Basic Black card base. Two strips of Basic Black are adhered to the back of the frame and the ends of the “curtain panels” are put through the loops. This creates the mechanism for this theater card.

The inside panel can be used for a greeting, sentiment or additional DSP panel. My card has the sentiment from Pansy Patch (#154999) on Basic White, matted on Crushed Curry.

The July-December mini-catalog has so many wonderful items for all of your fall and holiday cards, scrapbooking, paper crafting, and gift giving needs!

Waves of the Ocean Collection Available NOW

Each of the world’s wide and open oceans is brimming with beauty and wonder. Marvelous marine animals, miles of submerged mountain ranges, and unique underwater plants lie thousands of feet below Earth’s dry surface, encouraging exploration and awaiting discovery. I am at the ocean right now and it is the most relaxing place for me!

Discover the depths of the ocean—and your artistic abilities—with the Waves of the Ocean Collection! This coastal collection includes an inspiring set of stamps and detailed dies, both early-release products from the upcoming 2022–2023 Annual Catalog. Plus, a pack of paper made from images of hand-poured paint, blue-hued foil sheets for a sea of shine, and radiant rhinestones for a splash of sparkle—each an exclusive product you can ONLY purchase during the promotion period! Orders may be placed beginning today!

  • Each of the sentiments in the Waves of Inspiration Stamp Set can be stamped onto either the outside or inside of a card. Mix and match the sentiments to pair them together, or use them independently of one another!
  • Create an eye-catching card background with the Blue Foils 12″ x 12″ Specialty Paper, or cut with the Waves Dies for an intricate and inspiring accent.
  • The wave-shaped dies from the detailed Waves Dies coordinate with the wave-shaped stamp from the Waves of Inspiration Stamp Set. Wash away a one-dimensional image and add dimension as deep as the ocean! You can also use the Waves Dies to cut clouds, birds, and sentiment labels.
  • The Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels come in six colors, both the light and dark versions of the following Stampin’ Up! shades: Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy, and Pacific Point.
  • While there is no direct coordination between the Waves of the Ocean 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and Waves Dies, you can combine the wave-shaped dies and any of the paper’s blue-hued patterns for an ocean wave with a realistic look!
