Santa Suit Winter Wonder Embossed Card


I am having so much fun creating adorable projects with the Santa Suit Bundle (the Santa Suit Stamp Set and the Santa Builders Framelits Dies) and the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder.  I was so surprised and sad to see them on the Holiday Catalog retiring list. 

The Santa's Suit Stamp Set comes in photopolymer.  The transparent nature of photopolymer stamps makes it easy to line up images for precision placement.

To stamp these images I used the Momento Black ink for the outlined images and Cherry Cobbler ink pad for the bold images.  I also used the Ivory Stampin' Blend for Santa and the Smoky Slate Stampin' Blend for the pants.  So fun!!! 

The background Shimmery Paper is embossed with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder.  So pretty!

Supply List
Stamps - Santa's Suit
Paper - Cherry Cobbler, Shimmery White, Whisper White, Merry Music Specialty DSP
Ink - Momento Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler
Tools and Accessories - Stampin' Blends (Ivory, Smoky Slate), Rhinestones
Big Shot - Santa Builders Framelits, Winter Wonder Embossing Folder, Layering Circles Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits

Stamparatus Update - Reserve Yours TODAY!!!


The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes.  It was amazingly popular so we have decided to make some important adjustments to the reservation process. 

The second reservation window will remain open from December 5-30; however, during this reservation period we will take as many orders as we receive and not close the window until December 30, 2017.  

Please note the following changes:
  • Beginning March 19, we will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse.  Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5-30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).  
  • Reservation limit - one reservation per customer
  • This is the last chance to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.  
  • The reservation window will open at 2:00 PM (MT) on December 5, 2017. 
Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a great day!!!

Ready for Christmas Scrapbook Pages

Hello Stampers!  We made these cute scrapbook pages at my Scrapbook Club workshop earlier this month featuring the Ready for Christmas Stamp Set and the Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies

I love how this Christmas tree turned out to be and it was fairly easy to put it together.  Here is how you can do it:
  1. Stamp the tree image on Garden Green card stock in Garden Green ink and die cut the stamped image.
  2. Cut a strip of Early Espresso card stock for a tree trunk and adhere it to the stamped image.
  3. Die cut 6 branches using Garden Green card stock.  Starting from the bottom adhere one branch onto the stamped image with Fine Tip Glue Pen.  
  4. Take a piece of Gold Cord and wrap it around the tree.  Secure the ends with tape.  
  5. Decorate the tree with ornaments and a Gold Glimmer star!  
The Ready for Christmas Stamp Set is packed with cute images!  I stamped them in Momento Black ink and colored them with Stampin' Blends.  So fun!!!

Paper - Real Red, Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Quilted Christmas DSP, Red Foil, Red Glimmer, Gold Glimmer
