SUITE: Wonder of the Season

The August–December 2020 Mini Catalog Inspiration WONDER OF THE SEASON SUITE When you think of Christmas what do you imagine? I don't have visions of sugarplums dancing in my head, but I do picture reindeer, sleighs with bells, and a cozy home decorated with mistletoe, lights, and garland. You'll find those traditional colors and iconic images of Christmas in the Wonder of the Season Suite. This mega suite includes two stamp and die combos, two Designer Series Paper choices, a Memories & More Card Pack with coordinating decorative Card & Envelopes, plus embellishments and ribbon to put the perfect finishing touches on your holiday projects. Even a perfectly traditional stamp set can take on a modern flair when combined with non-traditional colors and layout. I think you'll love the unexpected look of the trendy card I'm sharing in the tutorial below. Which style is your favorite traditional or non-traditional? Happy Stamping,

Tammy

Sorry about the watercoloring!  I wasn't going to post it because it's not good (haha!), but I wanted you to see that it's okay!  Cards don't have to be perfect to be appreciated.  Who doesn't enjoy some happy mail, even if it's not perfect?!?

Here are the supplies I used to create this fun card:


CARD: Hallows Night Magic

HALLOWS NIGHT MAGIC

Measurements

  • Very Vanilla ~ 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”
  • Very Vanilla ~ 3” x 5”
  • Mint Macaron ~ 4” x 5 ¼” plus scrap for banner (3/4” x 4”)

Instructions :

    1. Fold the Very Vanilla cardstock in half to create card base.
    2. Stamp pretty ‘label’ on Very Vanilla and cut out with corresponding die.
    3. Emboss Mint Macaron using the Cobwebs embossing folder and the Cut & Emboss Machine.
    4. Adhere the embossed layer to the base card using Multipurpose Glue.
    5. Adhere the stamped ‘label’ to the card base.
    6. Cut Mint Macaron banner ¾” x 3 ½”. Stamp ‘Happy Halloween’ on banner.
    7. Cut ribbon approximately 6” and tie around the gold hoop. Add a Mini Glue Dot to the back of the ribbon knot and adhere to the left side of the card. 
    8. Add Dimensionals to the banner and position over the gold hoop.
    9. Add a Gilded Gem to the upper left corner of the banner.

SUITE: Poinsettia Place

The August–December 2020 Mini Catalog Inspiration

POINSETTIA PLACE SUITE

When you are looking to create traditional and elegant Christmas cards, the Poinsettia Place Suite is one you'll reach for year after year.

Special touches like the flocked vellum in the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper (#153486), the dazzling Beaded Pearls (#153534), and the elegant Real Red Sheer Ribbon (#153535) make this suite stand out and shine. I also love that the Poinsettia Dies (#153522) have duplicates of several dies. That means when you stamp the layering poinsettia and leaf images from the coordinating Poinsettia Petals stamp set (#153475), you can save time by cutting out two of each at one time. We all love to save time!

From traditional colors to modern, monochrome elegance you'll be amazed at all the different styles you can create with this suite.

Below, I'm sharing a tutorial that combines a bit of rustic charm with elegant gold and embossed accents. I can't wait to see what you'll create with this gorgeous suite!


Happy Stamping,

Tammy

TIPS: The Take Your Pick Tool (#144107) with the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip (#149655) can be helpful when using detailed dies. Dies work best when they are clean with no paper pieces stuck in them. The Die Brush helps to easily remove paper from dies with detailed designs and small cut-out areas.
