If you want an early start on your holiday paper crafting projects, be sure you have the Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! You’ll find cardmaking supplies and tools for all your fall and winter celebrations. You can start ordering items from the catalog tomorrow, September 1st.
If you don’t have a copy of the Holiday Catalog yet, and want to become a Stamping Madly customer–or you’re already a customer, but didn’t receive a catalog for some reason–be sure to fill out the Catalog Request Form. Just click on the Catalog image below to be taken to the form.
Starting tomorrow, September 1st, you can see the Holiday Catalog items in the Online Stampin’ Up! Store. Use this link, then click on Holiday Catalog in the menu on the left-hand side of the page.
To whet your appetite a bit, I worked up a sample for you using the Hearth and Home Framelits with the Happy Scenes stamp set. These items come in a bundle, which will save you 15% off the price of buying the items separately!
I can’t show pictures of items from the catalog until tomorrow, but I think you’ll like this stamp set! It’s got scenes and sayings for winter, Christmas, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. The window frame is shown in the catalog turned 90 degrees, but if you use it in this orientation, more of the scene shows through the “window.” Then I added the fireplace mantel shape as an indoor window box.
The images are perfect for watercoloring, as in this sample. You could also use Markers and Blender Pens. Don’t you love the two tone watercolor wash that forms the background for the images? Leave a comment if you want to see a video on how to do this technique!
