I’m excited to share a super-fun sneak peek at some products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Holiday Catalog. The catalog was previewed to achieving demonstrators on Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Incentive Trip earlier this month and was revealed to all Stampin’ Up! demonstrators on Tuesday. Demonstrators can begin ordering from the catalog on August 1, and the catalog is live for customers on September 4. What fun! Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Harvest Hellos Bundle. Harvest Hellos is a Fall-themed stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Holiday Catalog. The set includes images and sentiments that can be used for great Fall occasions like back-to-school, harvest, Rosh Hashanah, Halloween and Thanksgiving. The coordinating Apple Builder punch can be used to build an apple or a pumpkin. I love the versatility of this bundle. Here’s a look:The punch was used to cut out the whole apple AND the apple slice (I then cut along the straight edge of the apple). Once I incorporated the cut apple slice, I couldn’t help but to pair it with this sentiment from Crafting Forever (which I used earlier this week):
- Card Elements. Donna’s sketch for this week’s challenge features The elements on Donna’s sketch were a partial element in the top, left and a band down the side. Here’s how I addressed those elements on my card. The apple (obviously) is the element at the top, left. I hung it off the edge of the blue panel a bit so the blue panel can be considered the sketch.I colored the exterior of the apple with Real Red Stampin’ Blends. I colored the inside of the apple with the lightest Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend Marker – a perfect shade to capture the fleshy inside of the apple.The strip down the side of the focal panel is cropped from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper – love these stripes! Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper:
- Inspiration. While I can’t share the inside pages of the catalog with you just yet, Stampin’ Up! has released some images from the catalog that I can share with you. These images give some great inspiration for using the Harvest Hellos bundle:
