My Demonstrator pre-order of products from the Holiday Mini catalogue has arrived. I can’t wait to share my favourites with you over the next couple of weeks.
If you haven’t already requested your personal copy of the Holiday Mini catalogue, do it now! Please e-mail me with your information. You are going to love the new seasonal products and the new hostess sets in this catalogue.
Today, I want to share a couple of cards using the new Delightful Decorations stamp set. This "ornamental" line also includes a coordinating punch and a Big Shot Holiday Windows Movers & Shapers die. You need to buy the Ornament punch with this stamp set because it is so easy to punch the stamped image!
Another new product in the Holiday Mini is Shimmer Paint. These little bottles are available in three colours – Champagne Mist, Platinum and Frost White. The Platinum colour is opaque and the Champagne Mist and Frost White are more translucent.
In the picture above, I inked up the stamp with Soft Suede and stamped as usual on the right hand side. One the left, I inked up the stamp and then applied a thin coat of the Frost White Shimmer paint with a sponge dauber before stamping. It is so pretty!
For this card, I punched out the Delightul Decorations ornament stamp and adhered it into the space created with the Big Shot Holiday Windows Movers & Shakers die. I created a layered paper border with the new Christmas Cocoa Specialty Designer Series Paper and Kraft cardstock. A piece of Soft Suede polka-dot ribbon was tied around the border, polka dots down. Lastly, I embellished with the Scallop and Large Oval punches and a pearl from the Pretties Kit.
This card uses the image that was coated with the Frost White Shimmer Paint before stamping. I rotated the Holiday Windows ornament die to change the direction of the card. The layered paper border uses the Christmas Cocoa designer series paper and Kraft cardstock with the Soft Suede ribbon. Three medium pearls from the Pretties kit were used on the left to finish the card.
I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek! Check back over the next few days for more product previews.
Don’t think it, ink it!
