A Sneak Peek at Words of Cheer

I was so happy to have time to dig into my demonstrator pre-order from Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2021 Mini Catalog that goes live on August 3. There are so many wonderful and new products in this catalog, and I know you are going to LOVE to shop these pages while also earning Sale-a-Bration products. Yay! Here’s a Christmas card I made with a new bundle from the new catalog and a “returning favorite” Designer Series Paper:

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • SNEAK PEEK – Words of Cheer Bundle. As soon as I saw the Words of Cheer Bundle in Stampin’ Up!’s upcoming Mini Catalog, I was in love. Not only do I love the beautiful spray of flowers at the heart of the stamp set, but I really, really love the coordinating dies that can be used to build “happy” and “cheer” sentiments that coordinate with the other elements of the stamp set. Brilliant! Here’s a look at the Words of Cheer Bundle: Words of Cheer Bundle, Stampin Up! 156389I cropped the leafy background of the “happy” sentiment with Pear Pizzazz cardstock and cropped the more defined sentiment with Real Red. They layered together for a beautifully-stacked sentiment. Here’s a closer look: Words of Cheer Bundle, Heartwarming Hugs, Stampin Up!, Brian King, Christmas card
  • Welcome Back! As last year’s Holiday catalog wrapped up, I was happy to see that Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper would be returning this year. Not only are the patterns fun and versatile, but the colors are and incredible mix of red and greens. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this returning favorite Designer Series Paper:Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper, Stampin Up!, 153492To accent my sentiment, I added another Real Red favorite (that never went away) – the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels were a great bonus to add a little sparkle to my card.
  • Christmas Colors. Are you ready for Christmas colors?! I am – especially when they are a gorgeous combination of red and greens like this one, which I pulled right from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper. If you like this mix of Real Red, Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow as much as I do (and I do!), I hope you’ll save this for future reference:Stampin' Up!

    • Thank you so much, Linda! It really makes the “happy” a holiday happy – even though the thin-lined one on the inside can be used for any occasion (unless you want to snip the boughs away).
