Stampin' Up! 2015 Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek - Festive Flower

Happy Monday everyone! I spent my weekend having a play with some of this year's Stampin' Up! Holiday catalogue goodies which will be available to the public in just one weeks time! As always there are lots of new exciting products for the festive season and also happy to annouce there are quite a few "bundles" that will be available to purchase at discounted prices as well! I've been playing with a new stamp set called Reason for the Season which comes with a punch called Festive Flower Builder, which as you can see from my pics is not only useful for a beautiful, Real Red,christmas poinsettia flower or glitter flower but will be able to be used all year round for other occasions as you can see in the blue flower I created. I plan on using the red one in my classes as one of our first christmas projects to kick off the season with! Thanks for stopping by...........cheers Sue :)

Tri Shutter card with Pretty Petals DSP from Stampin' Up!

Hi all! We made this tri shutter card in one of my classes this week, thought we'd try a different type of "fold" for a change! My class are not beginners by any means and thought it would be pretty straight forward, as it turned out we were all laughing about the challenge of getting the "mountain and valley" folds right, I really did not expect it to pose any difficulty all! Anyhow all projects were completed correctly and everyone was happy with it. The Pretty Petals dsp is a great little product, it has lovely designs and come in one of the 6" x 6" pads which are perfect for cardmakers as they don't need to purchase in 12" x 12". I haven't used our owl punch for awhile and decided it was time to resurrect it, it's still so cute! The sentiments come from a new stamp set called Pretty Thankful which has alot of great sentiments in it as well as some cute, whimsy images. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, it was so nice to actually have a "warm" day today for the first time in months........thanks for looking, cheers Sue :)
