What's in my Stampin' Up! Big Brown Box?

On the first day of Christmas the preorder period started, a new Stampin' Up! catalogue was coming to town for the New Year and let me say I was excited.  On Stage Local in Melbourne had wet my appetite for all the new lovelies that were coming and it was difficult for me to stick to my budget! between you and I - I went a weeee bit over - so glad I had some free product credit to use.

So it arrived and I posted a teaser photo on my Facebook page of just a Big Brown Box and it got a fair bit of curiosity happening on my page.

Have you seen the new catalogue yet? Get your Demonstrator to send you a copy once they have them in their hot little hands - there is a heap of lovely stuff in there!

 

Not much room for brown paper in this box. There was new scallop circle punches, shimmery embossing paste, stamp set & framelit bundles, Divine DSP, 2 new kits and a stack of Catalogues made this one heavy box!

 
The True Gentleman Suite - classic bold patterns. Red Rubber Stamp set and Tailored Tag Punch bundle. Gentleman buttons and 1cm Corduroy Ribbon In Night of Navy make the perfect accompaniment to this suite.
 

 
 

The Myths & Magic Suite - a glittery world of mythical creatures and magic (my Miss Eilish’s must have Suite in the whole Catalogue) and I do agree with her. Its divine!
 
 
Magical Day red rubber stamp set - bundled with Magical mates Framelits.
Oh the Specialty DSP with Iridescent glittered designs on one side with all occasions imagery on the other is perfect and is a great match Specialty Myths & Magic Washi Tape and Glimmer Paper.


 
Now I just need to finish my Christmas cards, prepare for my last Creative Cuppa for the year and then I can get playing with these new goodies!
So till next time - Happy Stampin'

Watercolour Christmas Card in Old Olive

 
Just popping in to share this super quick Christmas card with you.
 
The Watercolor Christmas set is retiring so I'm trying to get as much use out of it as possible before its no longer available. I love the font Stampin' Up! has used on this set.
 
 
 
In Australia its only 17 sleeps to go have you sent all your Christmas cards out yet?

Santa’s Sleigh Festivities - GSF Blog Hop


 Welcome to the December GSF Blog Hop - we are celebrating the festive season with festive projects to share. We are hopping all about the world from one side of the globe to here in Australia then back again - Did you see Marieke's project how amazing are those decorations? Some people are super clever aren't they? 

I decided to have a play with the Merry Music Specialty DSP, the pizza boxes and Santa's Sleigh. I water coloured the trees very lightly so that the DSP didn't balls up like wet paper can do.





So the inside of the card got the same treatment but be frugal with the water on the Whisper White card as its not really a fan of being super wet.

So lets head on across the world with the press of the Next button and visit Angelique  to see the divine famed art she has to share with us.

Stampin' Up! Season Like Christmas in Old Olive or Soft Suede?

So we all have our favourite colours don't we? The first colours I purchased all those years ago were Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive, 10 years later they are still my favourite deep down colours.

Playing with the Seasons Like Christmas stamp set - will say I saw this beautiful card Janneke made for the Global Design Team Challenge I had to make my own version) 








So playing some more I decided to try the same card with Soft Suede and this was the outcome!

The tree is only Old Olive on both cards - the larger fuller branches are stamped off first to give the lighter shade. the larger fuller branches are used on the base card in the same ink colour for the 'texture' look on the card - they were stamped off as well.




Don't forget your inside and envelope they look so much nicer with a little matching ink.
This is a great Stamp-A-Stack project, a easy to put together card that looks great and uses minimal supplies.

This week the Global Design Project #GDP115 have a theme challenge - This week's theme is all about sharing the joy of Christmas. You can find all the details on their page HERE - I am thinking I may have to play along with that one so watch this space.
