Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop | More Carols of Christmas

Hello, hello, hello! It's Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop day and we are hopping with the Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies. Lots of fun and lots of more fabulous ideas. And hopefully some inspiration for you.
I can't believe we are starting our Christmas creations. Although now is a perfect time to get that head start while things aren't crazy busy. So why not get this Carols of Christmas Stamp set and the co-ordinating thinlits now for that head start on those Christmas cards. Get these two products together in a bundle and you will save yourself 10%.  Not only will are these products so fabulous they are so versatile with so many different looks you can created. I'm sure the rest of the Artisans have shown you how amazing these products are.

I've got three cards for you today. One layout with three different looks trying to use a lot of the elements from the stamp set and the thinlits dies .

The first card starts with some Very Vanilla Cardstock and the Sheet Music Background Stamp, stamped with Crumb Cake Classic Ink for a fun background. The 'Peace on Earth' was stamped with Basic Black ink and then heat embossed with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. I love using Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder over different coloured inks. I just gives some thing extra and special to any card. I then added a scalloped square frame cut using the Layering Squares Framelits. Super gorgeous in the Gold Glimmer Paper to add to that festive feel.

The next card uses some a black, gold and white colour combo. Such a classic look. Don't you just love those bold gold and white stripes. They don't come from any DSP pack but from one of the new Striped Treat Bags from the 2017 - 2018 Annual Catalogue. I love, love, love big, bold stripes like this, *sniff, sniff*, Pop of Pink, I miss you! So when I saw the stripes of the treat bag I knew I had to cut it up and use it as DSP. If you are going to use it be careful with it especially when cutting with thinlits and Framelits as the paper of the treat bag is a lot thinner than the usual DSP and will have a tendency to tear.

How fabulous does that thinlit look die cut into the treat bag? I love the Basic Black cardstock behind it to keep in with that classic look.

Last, but not least, is using the Poinsettia Thinlits Dies. Again I started with the Basic Black base and then layered with Shimmery White and Cherry Cobbler. How fabulous is Cherry Cobbler for Christmas cards and crafts? It really is the Stampin' Up! Christmas Red. It's perfect for Christmas!

Because the Poinsettia thinlits made the card quite busy I thought it really didn't need much else. I added a small piece of the Fabulous Foil Acetate, little bit of  the Burlap Ribbon and some of the Gild Mini Sequin Trim.

What's the saying, 'Same, same but different".  I hope that I've given you some more inspiration especially to get a head start on your Christmas Cards and get the ball rolling.
So get this bundle now and save yourself 10%.
