It’s so easy to flip quickly past the pages in a catalog that feature carryover products – we know what they are, and we know what they do. As I was flipping through the Christmas-themed projects in Stampin Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog, taking a closer look at some familiar products, I came across a project that used the Seasonal Chums stamp set in a way I loved. I will share that project in a moment, but first here’s a card I made with inspiration from that project:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Inspired. How sweet is this simple project? With just a few layers of cardstock and a couple of fun details, this card came together quickly. There are two stamp sets in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog that, along with coordinating dies, create super-cute tags with a front and back – A Little Wild and Seasonal Chums. I’ll include a link to both sets and coordinating in the links at the base of this post. From the start I either used these images as a tag or snipped around the images to create a single image for a card front. One sample (on page 103 of Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog) created a fun background on wrapping paper and inspired me to make this card. Here’s a look at that project:
- Sweet Elements. The A Little Wild features three fun characters with some adorable elements that add to the fun of the animals. The bear, lion and elephant are accompanied by bees, a flower and grass – and some really sweet sentiments. Here’s a closer look at the A Little Wild stamp set: Not only did I stamp these bears in the background of the card and fill in spaces with the bee’s nest, but I stamped the bear on Crumb Cake and cropped him out with the Little Loves Framelits Dies (and snipped around his left ear to separate him from the tag). I also stamped the image on So Saffron and snipped out the bee to glue down to my bear image.
- Three Warm Colors. My card showcases three warm shades of yellow and brown – So Saffron, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. There’s a cuteness in the “hello there, honey bear!” sentiment and a warmness in the combination of colors. If you like this trio of So Saffron, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, please save this:

How cute are these little images? I hope you’ll give them another look if you don’t have them or find a fun way to use them if you do.
