There are so many awesome and new products in the soon-to-be-released Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. Yesterday I offered you a “sneak peek video” – but I scheduled the video to post at 5PM, instead of 5AM. Silly me! As such, if you tried to view the video in the early morning, then you received a “please sign in” notice. If you missed it, you still have a chance to see it – click here.
Today I’m sharing another wonderful pairing of products from the Holiday Catalog – Jingle All the Way stamp set and Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies. Here’s a sneak peek at this wonderful offering (available individually or in a bundle):
These Edgelits Dies are absolutely incredible! Sloped and curvy, one die has trees, one die has houses and one die has a horse and sleigh. Such an easy way to design a quick-and-easy card with layers of wonderful hills. The sentiments in the coordinating stamp set slope right along with the cropped dies. What a wonderful pairing!
Although these Edgelits Dies are created for a beautiful Christmas landscape, I used them to make a chic and modern Housewarming Card. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Flexible Edgelits. I already told you these Sleigh Ride Edgelits are incredible – now do you believe me? They are trendy, fun and flexible to be used in so many ways. While I could easily crop out five houses that rest on the top of a curve, I decided to use the negative cutout to crop the five houses into the base of the curve. What fun!
- Happy Notes. This sentiment is from Happy Notes, one of my Favorite Picks from this year’s Annual Catalog, is the perfect sentiment for a Housewarming Card. The image that accompanies this sentiment is ADORABLE, but it wasn’t right for this card – so I isolated the sentiment – if you’d like to see my video about isolating images on a stamp, click here. Here’s a look at Happy Notes:
- Green and Black. Before I sat down to make this card, I knew I wanted to make a green and black card. I don’t know why – I just had that combination of colors in my head and couldn’t let go of it. Cucumber Crush provides the right level of vibrancy to pair perfectly with the deep richness of Basic Black. 2015-2017 In Color Envelope Papers make a perfect envelope liner to send with this simple card.
