Mini Catalog Sneak Peek - Poinsettia Place Suite


These are the projects I made in my Facebook/YouTube Live video earlier today. If you missed it, you can watch the video below.

I showcased the beautiful Poinsettia Place Suite, along with the Little Treats Box Dies...all from the Stampin' Up! August - December 2020 Mini Catalog. I actually used EVERYTHING in the Poinsettia Place Suite on these two projects! I have great news! You'll be able to start ordering from the new mini catalog beginning THIS Tuesday, August 4, 2020!


I got this layout from my upline Cheri Stojkovich. She challenged us to use one of her card templates, and this is what I came up with. This card showcases all of the colors in the color combo of the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper (DSP)...Real Red, Old Olive, Garden Green, Bumblebee, & Soft Suede. I love how this card template shows off the DSP!



The Real Red 3/8" Sheer Ribbon is so pretty in person. The pictures don't do it justice!


How do you like that beautiful poinsettia flower center? They're called Beaded Pearls, and you get 18 of them! I think this flower center really finished the card off perfectly!


I love that there are dies that die cut the poinsettia and leaves, but I REALLY love that there are embossing dies that put the veins in the them, too!


The label was made using one of the dies in the Little Treat Box Dies. It worked perfectly with the greeting stamp from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set. This stamp set can be purchased with the Poinsettia Dies as a bundle. Purchasing the Poinsettia Petals Bundle, instead of purchasing them individually, saves you 10% 


Dimensions:
  • Real Red Cardstock (CS):  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base) & 5-1/2" x 3" (poinsettia)
  • Bumblebee CS:  5-1/4" x 4" (embossed base layer)
  • Garden Green CS:  scraps (leaves)
  • Whisper White CS:  scraps (greeting label)
  • Poinsettia Place DSP:  (3) 1-1/2" x 3-3/4"
  • Real Red Sheer Ribbon:  7" (strip across card) & 5" (ribbon behind greeting label)


Here's the little treat bag I also made in the video below. The bag was made with the Little Treat Box Dies. The box itself is made with the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. Now, all of the products from the Poinsettia Place Suite have been used!



The Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper is white vellum with white, flocked designs. It's so soft! There are three different, 12" x 12" designs in this paper pack, and there are two of each design. You can see all of the designs in the video below.


There are a few different poinsettia sizes in this suite, so you have a lot of versatility with them. I used the smallest poinsettia dies to make this beauty. I used the same label die I used on the card. I also heat embossed the greeting with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder. Note:  I said the label was made with Whisper White cardstock in the video, but I meant to say Shimmery White cardstock. I love the shimmer with the heat embossing!


The picture above shows the depth of the treat box a little better. This box is so cute!


The Beaded Pearls were too big for this little poinsettia, so I used three of the smallest pearls in the Pearl Basic Jewels from the Annual Catalog.


Here's what the treat box looks like from the back. I wanted to show you this so you can see the whole shape of the treat box, and to see more of that beautiful flocked paper.


Dimensions:
  • Real Red CS:  scraps (poinsettia)
  • Garden Green CS:  scraps (leaves)
  • Shimmery White CS:  scraps (greeting label)
  • Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper:  5-3/4" x 7-1/4" (treat box)
  • Real Red Shimmer Ribbon:  Enough to make a bow
  • Pearl Basic Jewels:  (3) small pearls

Mini Catalog Sneak Peek - Peace & Joy Bundle


Today's Sneak Peek card features the Peace & Joy Bundle from the upcoming August - December 2020 Mini Catalog. You don't have too long to wait to order from this catalog...It starts next Tuesday, August 4, 2020!


I used new Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the mini catalog, too. It's called Heartwarming Hugs DSP. There are so many great designs in this paper, and some can be used for projects other than Christmas...like the design I used.


The ribbon is also new. It's called Mossy Meadow Diagonal Stripe Ribbon. You can get two different looks with this ribbon. I used the side where the wider stripes are Mossy Meadow. The wider stripes on the other side are white.


The color combo I used came from some of the colors in the DSP...Real Red & Mossy Meadow.


I love the dies in this bundle. They're called Joy Dies. There are three different words, and three different dies for each word. I used two the largest dies for the "Joy" word. I love being able to die-cut a perfect mat for the word. So much easier than fussy cutting!

I love the word-strip stamps in the set, too. I did fussy cut the "to the world" strip out, but as you'll see in the video below, it's super easy to cut out.


I made my own designer paper on the top part of the Whisper White layer. The holly and berries are stamps in the Peace & Joy set.


As you can see, I embossed stamped "Joy" in gold. I really like the look.


The inside of the card was stamped with a lot of the stamps in the set. I love how it turned out. It could even pass as a front of a card, too.


Dimensions:
  • Mossy Meadow:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base) & 3-1/8" x 4-3/8" (stamped layer's mat)
  • Real Red:  4" x 5-1/4" (base layer) & 3" x 2" ("Joy" mat)
  • Whisper White:  3" x 4-1/4" (stamped layer), 2-3/4" x 2" (stamped "Joy"), & 4" x 5-1/4" (inside)
  • Heartwarming Hugs DSP:  3" x 1-1/2"
  • Mossy Meadow Diagonal Stripe Ribbon:  5"

Mini Catalog Sneak Peek - Christmas Means More Meets Cherish the Season


I've got another Christmas card to share with you today, and it features more products from Stampin' Up!'s upcoming August - December 2020 Mini Catalog. I'm doing a lot of Christmas cards right now, since everyone likes "Christmas in July"!


The Mini Catalog sneak peek products I used on today's card are the Christmas Means More Stamp Set, Cherish the Season Bundle, Tis the Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP), and the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack.


The Christmas Means More & Cherish the Season Bundle go wonderfully together! I love how the bells in the stamp coordinate with the bell dies!


Do you notice how the holly in the Tis the Season DSP strip I used coordinates with the holly in the bell die-cuts? Stampin' Up!'s coordination is the BEST!


I used Champagne Foil Sheets for the bell die-cuts, and paired it with the gold cord in the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack. I didn't used to use different metallics together on a project until Stampin' Up! started doing it. We've had some DSP packs that have included different metallics together the last few years, and they've been gorgeous! We have another DSP pack with different metallics in it from the new Mini Catalog, too. It's called Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP, and it has both copper & gold foils. If you would like to see this beautiful paper, you can in the unboxing video I did at the beginning of the month. You can see it by CLICKING HERE. This link will take you directly to where I show the paper. If you want to see all of the Fall & Halloween stuff I got from the new Mini Catalog, you'll want to rewind to the beginning of the video.


Here's a close-up of those gorgeous bells. It's a little hard to see the colors in the video below, so I wanted to make sure to include a close-up picture of them here. The bell dies I used actually cut out the holly leaves and berries. That's nice if you want openings in the bell, but I wanted to keep the leaves and holly in place so I could add some color to them with Stampin' Blends. I show you an easy trick on how to make this happen in the video below.


I absolutely love the Christmas is More Stamp Set! It includes four different quotes from my favorite Christmas movies! I just had to use the quote that comes from my favorite Christmas movie first...It's a Wonderful Life. You can see all of the quotes in this set in the video below. I colored the bells in with Stampin' Blends, but totally forgot to do the bell on the right on the card I made in the video. Thankfully, I colored them all in on the card pictured. LoL


Dimensions:
  • Cherry Cobbler:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Basic Black:  4" x 5-1/4" (base layer) & 1-1/8" x 5-1/8" (DSP mat)
  • Whisper White:  (2) 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" (stamped front layer and inside layer)
  • Tis the Season DSP:  1" x 5-1/8"
  • Champagne Foil Sheets:  3-1/2" x 2"
  • Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack:  enough for 2 bows (gold cord)

Mini Catalog Sneak Peek - For Unto Us & Evergreen Forest


I did a Live last Friday where I showed all of the new products I got with my second August - December 2020 Mini Catalog preorder. My first unboxing video showed what I got from my first preorder, which contained mainly Fall & Halloween products. My second preorder contained all Christmas! You can see all of my new Christmas stuff in the video below.


At the end of the video below, I make this elegant-looking Christmas card. I REALLY like how this one turned out, and I LOVE how quick and easy it is to make, too! This would definitely make a great card to mass produce for your Christmas cards this year!


I used four new products from the upcoming mini catalog. First, the stamp set. I used the new For Unto Us Stamp Set. The greetings in this stamp set are wonderful! I sell most of my stamp sets when they retire, but I'll be keeping this one! I really like to make Christian Christmas cards, and this set is wonderful for this.


The second new mini catalog product I used is the GORGEOUS Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder. Isn't it beautiful? I'm positive I'll be using this folder A LOT!


What did I emboss with it? The new Brushed Metallic Cardstock in the mini catalog. If you look closely, you can see the "brushed" texture to the foil-like cardstock. This cardstock pack has three different metallic colors...gold, copper, and the one I used here, bronze. It comes in 12" x 12" sheets, and the pack includes 2 of each metallic color. I got this cardstock in my first preorder.


I used a die set that we've had for awhile, Stitched Shapes Dies. If you don't own them yet, you can find this die set in the Annual Catalog. Believe me, these dies are a must!

I also used the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder on the Very Vanilla base layer from the annual catalog. You can see the embossing better in the picture below.


The last new mini catalog product I used is the ribbon. It comes from the new Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack. The pack includes this beautiful, Shaded Spruce ribbon and gold cord. This Shaded Spruce ribbon is so elegant and beautiful! The pictures don't do it justice. I think the video might show it off a little better.


It's a little hard to tell in the picture above, but I embossed the bottom of the inside layer of the card with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder. You have to be careful when you emboss it across the bottom of the cardstock, and you can learn how to do it in the video below. The greeting is also a stamp from the For Unto Us Stamp Set. I didn't add the greeting in the video below, but added it later. That's another reason I love this stamp set...there are stamps for the outside AND inside of cards.


Dimensions:
  • Shaded Spruce:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base) & 4-3/8" x 3-1/8" (mat for tree layer)
  • Very Vanilla:  (2) 5-1/4" x 4" (embossed base layer and inside of card) & 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" (circle)
  • Brushed Metallic Cardstock:  4-1/4" x 3" (bronze)
  • Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack:  6" (Shaded Spruce ribbon)
