Welcome to Stampin’ Addicts‘ latest blog hop, celebrating the new Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! Is your copy at your elbow right now? The hops are in the same order as the sets in the catalog, so follow along — and keep your wish list handy, too! (And if you ever lose your way, come back here and click on the banner above to see the complete lineup of blogs.)
You may have arrived from Lily’s Ink Pad and enjoyed Sara’s projects using Scentsational Season. I think it’s fair to say that everything she did was indeed scentsational — love all that cinnamon!
When I chose Evergreen for my hop set, I wanted to design cards for upcoming stamp camps. I wanted to do something that didn’t shout “Christmas tree!” but I’m not sure I was up to the challenge! Click to enlarge the photos, please.
“Classic” is my style, and nothing makes it easier than the new Core-dinations Card Stock. I used it with River Rock to make the sanding pop even more. The fringed mat? Just an old dish towel that I pulled from the rag bag! The Linen Thread on this Classic Evergreen card makes it Christmas; leaving it off might keep this all-occasion. What do you think?
I simply had to use the evergreen on a landscape card; turning the Holiday Frame folder on its side balances the layout, I think. This Sparkly Evergreen card uses all three of the tree images. A Stamp-a-ma-jig is a must! (Check back next Tuesday for a SAMJ tip!) The sparkle doesn’t show up too well in the photo — after cutting out the image I pressed it into VersaMark and embossed the piece with Iridescent Ice.
This next card didn’t start out to be an Elegant Evergreen, but that’s where it landed! I don’t use Brushed Gold Card Stock much on the off-season, but it’s never far away during the holidays. The new 1¼” Scallop Punch forms the mat on the ends of the focal piece. This was an easy project, perfect for making multiples.
I can’t resist a blue holiday card — it seems to beg for pearls and diamonds and snow. And since I’ve been experimenting with heat embossing on window sheets, I tried it on this Blue Evergreen card. The tree inside is stamped in Midnight Muse — very unconventional! Perhaps a Blue Spruce?
Thanks for visiting! Come back again to learn the details of my projects. Now tie on your skates and enjoy Kim’s snowy projects using Winter Memories at Stitchin’ N Stampin’ on Paper. Enjoy your trip!
