Stampin’ Up! is releasing two new stamp sets, a grand set of dies, a new pack of papers and embellishments on November 1. I’m so excited for you to get your hands on these amazing, new products – and I can’t wait to see what you make with these goodies! I shared the collection of products yesterday – you can see them here. Today I’m sharing a card I’ve made with the Christmas stamp set – Snow is Glistening. While the coordinating dies are INCREDIBLE, I decided to simply feature the stamp set here. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Snow is Glistening. Snow is Glistening is the Christmas-themed stamp set in the limited-time Snowflake Showcase collection of products that Stampin’ Up! will release on November 1. Along with gorgeous sentiments, there are lots of snowflakes, including a large tree made of snowflakes. The images are quite beautiful. Here’s a look at the Snow is Glistening stamp set:I stamped the sentiment with Whisper White Craft Ink and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The white pops against the Tranquil Tide backdrop. The Foliage Frames Framelits Dies delivers a perfect outline for the sentiment. Here’s a closer look: While I didn’t use the Snowfall Thinlits Dies on this project, I want to make sure you see them – they are incredible. Here’s a look at the coordinating Snowfall Thinlits dies:To see all of the products included in the Snowflake Showcase collection, click on the banner below:
- Background Pattern. At first glance, you might not see how I created the diagonal band of snowflakes in the background of this card. I created the pattern by stamping the triangular tree image multiple times on the Whisper White cardstock. I used my Stamp-a-ma-Jig (a stamp positioning tool that retired last year but that I will never give up) to line the tree image up over and over. The tree is stamped over and over with Lemon Lime Twist, so the pattern looks seamless here. To give you a better idea of how I did this, I stamped the tree with Coastal Cabana and Lemon Lime Twist:How fun is that?! The options are endless with this pattern – I’ll definitely be playing with it more in the weeks to come.
- Unexpected Color Combination. While green is not a creative choice for a Christmas tree image, a green flurry of snowflakes is unexpected, don’t you think? There’s something I love, though, about these lemon lime flakes. I paired these light green flakes with Tranquil Tide for a gorgeous combination of greens. I layered the base of the card with Basic Gray and Smoky Slate to give a neutral base to these greens. If you like this combination of Smoky Slate, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide, please save this:
