Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop. Stampin’ Up!’s 2015 Holiday Catalog is just around the corner (it’s live on September 1) – and this amazing book is filled to the brim with incredible bundles at discounted prices. Who doesn’t love to save with bundles?!? Today we are Bundled Up for the Holidays as we celebrate these amazing stamp set bundles from the Holiday Catalog. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Let it Snow with Stampin’ Up!’s Snow Place Bundle
There’s classy, there’s cutesy and there’s downright adorable. I couldn’t resist going the “adorable route” for this blog hop – and these penguins have got “adorable” locked down. Here’s my project:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Snow Place Bundle. My project today features one of the most adorable bundles in Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog – the Snow Place stamp set with the coordinating Snow Friends Framelits Dies. It was like paper doll dress up – start with a figure and then add a hat, add a scarf, add an ice cream cone. The options are [seemingly] endless with these fun add-on stamps with coordinating Framelits. Do you see how many Framelits there are?!? How can you resist these adorable snowmen, and who won’t want to decorate with this penguin?
- A Slippery Slope. I created a fun, snowy hillside for these penguins using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies. I cropped the image with three little trees (and then snipped off the trees) to create a perfect slope for these guys to play on. While both penguins are, in fact, the exact same size, the one on the right appears to be smaller because of his position lower on the slope and because I added the height-enhancing hat to the one on the left.
- Crisp and Cool Color Combination. I just love the pairing of rich red and pale aqua. I knew I wanted to make the snow hill Pool Party, so Cherry Cobbler wasn’t far behind. I also love to pair Pool Party with Real Red (it’s more playful than the richer, deeper Cherry Cobbler), but I like the idea of creating sophisticated penguins with their Cherry Cobbler accessories.
