Other GREAT Products in Holiday Catalog

Over the past several weeks I have been sharing some of the fun bundles in the
2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

Today I just want to share a couple of fun products that you might like to pick up!

I totally missed this gorgeous paper the first few times I went through the catalog.  It's kinda buried on page 37.  Maybe I missed because I don't really care for the projects on these pages--but this paper is to die for and can be used on so many other projects!

Check out this short video:

This is the same type of paper that I am giving away FREE this month (just different prints embossed on it) when you order--make sure to check out my ordering special below!!!

Here is another great product you might want to check out:  CABLE KNIT EMBOSSING FOLDER
This one is totally different than other embossing folders--watch the video to see why!

Card Sketch + 2 Fun Ideas

It's Friday and that means another SKETCH for you.  I love sketches because they make me break out of my box and design a card a bit differently than I normally do!!!


I also like that on Friday's, when I share a SKETCH CHALLENGE with you, I try to use stamps and/or products I haven't really used before.  

Or even totally different colors than my normal.

Since I am not making a "Card Series" of at least 3 different cards with ONE STAMP SET + MINIMAL SUPPLIES, I just play with whatever "hits me" at the time!

So, here is my first interpretation of this week's sketch:


Talk about OUT OF THE BOX.....
Love the pink & green for Christmas!!!


Here is the sketch that I used for inspiration:


Remember.....this is just a "sketch."  You can interpret anyway you want!!!!

Colors mean nothing--use stamps & colors that you want to use!
The layers can be cardstock, Designer Paper, ribbon, embossed cardstock, or ???

Sometimes we just need a little guidance to get our creative juices flowing.....

I challenge you to create something using this sketch!


Want to create this card?  Just click on any of the pictures below to order the supplies!


Here is another fun card using today's sketch:
