Sneak Peak II - Stampin' Up! - Holiday Mini Catalog

More sneak peaks from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. The new items are fabulous!!! The following are just a few more things that I have made to share with you. Just a reminder tho, the stamp sets used to make these items cannot be purchased until September 1st. Then you can purchase them thru my on-line store (clickable button on the right of your screen) or by contacting me.

The following were made using Sweet Centers Stamp Set and Sweet Treat Cups (they hold about 1/3 of a regular size bag of M&Ms.

For the flower, you stamp out 3 leaves and 9 petals the I cut them with scissors. They are a perfect fit for around the Sweet Treat Cup. Wouldn't these be perfect for a bridal shower or as a party favor. These are one of my favorites and so easy to make too.

I used the stamp set Lovely as a Tree (item #115026) to create the forest. The hot air balloon is from the stamp set Sweet Centers. This does make the card a bit top heavy because the balloon is towards the top of the card.

Since we ran out of chocolates, I decided to try the Sweet Treat Cups filled with something else. I had a package of retired buttons from Stampin' Up! and used those. I thought it really looked nice. Would be fun to fill with brads or ribbons too. Give a card and a little gift this way. I used the Eyelet Border Punch for the edge. Sentiment is from Scenic Season stamp set (item #115354).

This is the Halloween Sweet Center without the center punched out and a Sweet Treat Cup inserted. So the stamp set can be used either way for this one and for the Valentine one. Also if you didn't have the Sweet Treat Cups, you could punch out 1 3/4" circles for the Hot Air Balloon and the ornament.

Here's the Halloween one as a treat give away filled with 4 gumdrops.

This is the Valentine one filled with metal eyelets (item and tiny punched out hearts (Heart to Heart Punch -- item 113694). The I love you is the punched out circle from the design. I attached it to the card with dimensionals.

Here is the same design for Valentine's Day by itself. (NOTE: The card base with edging is a card base I used for remaking a card ... it is not a Stampin' Up! product).

Used the Eyelet Border Punch (item #113692) to create the lacy effect on the whisper white. The stamp set is called Wandering Words and has this one, the Santa & Sleigh (see yesterday's blog for photo) and a fall one that says "thankful, grateful, appreciative". I used the Stampin' Write markers (handsome hunter, chocolate chip, ruby red) to color the stamp.

Did you notice the silvery edge to the card???? We have a brand new product in the mini that is called Shimmer Paint. It comes in Champagne Mist (looks golden), Frost White, and Platinum. It is a small bottle of liquid paint. I used a brush to do the edging. Found it was easy to clean running the brush under running water. I cleaned the brush immediately after use. The Stampin' Mist can be used as the cleaner for it also. I think it will be great as a highlight item and am looking forward to seeing how others use it too.
