I’m head-over-heals in love with almost every new product in Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Holiday Catalog. There’s something for everyone in this book – and that means I can make all types of cards for the holidays – sweet, modern, vintage or just plain cute. For today’s project, a card I made for this week’s Paper Players challenge, I went with the latter. Featuring the baby bear from Fa-la-la-la Friends, this card is just plain cute. Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for Jaydee’s theme challenge that inspired my card:
- Cuteness Overload. The simple layout of my card points you straight to the big circles with the adorable bear (from Fa-la-la-la Friends and his Christmas gift (from Weather Together). I stamped the bear the bear on Crumb Cake cardstock and cropped him with my Bear Hugs Framelits. I stamped him again on Pear Pizzazz and snipped out his little sweater, coloring the tiny tree with my Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write Marker. The presents was stamped on Real Red and again on Soft Sky. I snipped both pieces out and put them together.
The bears and festooned cod in this set pair with the Bear Hugs Framelits Dies, while the fa-la-la-la-llama pairs with the Fiesta Time Framelits. I love that Stampin’ Up! has helped us to make full use of these framelits – if you’ve got’em, you’ve got to have this set. 🙂
- Tin of Tags. This fun sentiment is my card’s finishing touch. SPECIAL DELIVERY – how cute is that?! The stamp set, Tin of Tags, is designed to coordinate with the Tin of Tags Project Kit, but the set works wonderfully on it’s own. The set contains a huge variety of Christmas sentiments in a variety of styles. I do love a good sentiment set! As simple as it is, SPECIAL DELIVERY says so much without saying much at all. Here’s a look at the stamp set:
And here’s a look at Stampin’ Up!’s video for this amazing Project Kit – starring my adorable friend Donna from Stampin’ Up!’s home office:
- Sweet, Soft Christmas. The Real Red bow on the bear’s package pulls warmth from the panel of Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack below him, while the Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky add soft, sweet elements to the card. These softer shades might not be expected for Christmas, but they sure are sweet! It’s just another combination of red, blue and green. If you like this combination, too, feel free to save this:
