Snowflake Sentiments Christmas Sketch Card

I am cleaning out my Holiday Catalog samples and realized there are a few that I haven't posted yet! Back in August, I used my Pocket Full of Sketches card layout book to make 12 new cards featuring stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog. (See More Sketch Book-inspired cards.) Even though my Sketch Book is a few years old, the card layouts are timeless. Here is a card that I made with the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set. This is my go-to color combination for winter snow cards: Marina Mist and Night of Navy.

Do you ever feel "stuck" when you're making cards? You will love my Pocket Full of Sketches book! This pocket-sized swatchbook includes ten different card layouts with two color photos of real cards to inspire you. The measurements for each layout are included, so you can just follow those measurements instead of having to figure it out yourself. For more card layouts like this one, get a copy of my Pocket Full of Sketches book, volume 2 -- before they're gone! It would make a perfect stocking stuffing for your favorite stamping buddy!

Christmas Happiness: 6 Holiday Projects

Today I am showcasing projects with a different stamp set from the Holday Catalog. I think the Christmas Happiness stamp set is overlooked! With pinecones and mistletoe, this photopolymer set is a hidden gem! Be sure to get it before it retires on January 2nd! (See what else is retiring.)

VIDEO: Fun Fold Series: Easel Card Tutorial + 3 Sneak Peek Cards

The Easel Card is a really easy fun fold card. Essentially, you fold the front of the card in half and then use something on the inside of the card to prop it open with Stampin' Dimensionals. I designed this Easel Card for my Stamp of the Month Club At Home With You card kit. This stamp set from the Annual Catalog is versatile with stamps for many occasions. I used the garland and wreath to make this one a Christmas card.

It's hard to tell in the photo, but I stamped the rectangular sign in the background on the Real Red cardstock to mimic bricks. The red cardstock is only attached to the bottom of the Tranquil Tide card front so that it stands up when the card it propped open.

  • 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Tranquil Tide cardstock, scored at 4-1/4" and 6-3/8"

Sneak Peek: Sweet Soiree Sampler Frame

Stampin' Up! Sweet Soiree Sampler Frame ~ 2018 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek ~ www.juliedavison.com
I am in love with the new Sweet Soiree designer paper! Each sheet has a foil design on one side, but also a pretty pattern on the "b" side. I think all of the foil designs in the past have always been single-sided and only a couple sheets in the package -- not EVERY sheet like this pack! Add the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit to your wish list too! You're going to love the die-cut and professionally colored images! I created this sampler frame to show off some of the pretty patterns in this paper pack.

The finished size is 8" x 8". I used Rich Razzleberry for my base. The designer paper is cut to 2" x 2" and they are all layered on 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment is from the current Garden in Bloom stamp set from the Annual Catalog. It says: "Friends are kind to each other's hopes & cherish each other's dreams." What perfect words!

I am LOVING all this new stuff! Catalogs are coming in the mail mid-December and I'll post the PDF as soon as the catalog launches on January 3rd. In case you missed it, be sure to check out my unboxing video for some more sneak peeks and projects from the Occasions & Sale-a-Bration catalogs!

Stampin' Up! Supplies: Garden in Bloom stamp set, Rich Razzleberry ink & cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Old Olive Stampin' Blend Marker, Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Paper, Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit, Triple Banner Punch, 1/8" Whisper White Sheer Ribbon
