Welcome to the Hello! Blog Hop for the brand new Holiday Catalogue!   You’ll be hopping around some amazing Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators blogs, each with an inspirational project, featuring new catalogue products. Currently you’re visiting Jacque Williams in Auckland, New Zealand!
My share is a simple, but pretty card and one that is easy to replicate in bulk, featuring the Christmas Pines Bundle:

I absolutely love the new Kraft Rope Trim.  It adds a real richness without being too “much”, either.

I’ve used the Kraft cardstock and the Mint Macaron cardstock, along with the yummy little Mini Pinecones.   Add Gold Wink of Stella to your Kraft cardstock for a deep shimmer.
Thank you for visiting today. The next stop is the talented Julie Kettlewell!

As many of you know, my favorite projects involve taking something rather ordinary and making it great!  Inspired by a swap I received on the Mediterranean Cruise, I recreated this fun, vibrant altered notebook:

I’ve used the Swirly Bird bundle here in more of an abstract way.  This set is so versatile – from soft and sweet to bright and 80’s!

I found these notebooks at the local $2 shop and dressed this up using Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White, and Gold Glimmer paper.

Any young girl would love this!  Or young at heart!  🙂

Hang Your Stocking with Cable Knit Christmas Card

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Today’s share is one of the three projects the guests made at my recent Holiday Catalogue Open House, and is inspired by Sandi McIver’s card of the same layout.  I’ve used the new Hang Your Stocking stamp set:

stampin-up-stockings-pincones-washi-tape-cable-knit-folder

The Presents & Pinecones Washi Tape adds a little accent to the VERY cool Cable Knit Embossing Folder background.

The wee stocking is stamped with the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and cut with the coordinating Christmas Stocking Thinlits Dies.  I cut two, one in Cherry Cobbler and one in Mint Macaron and paper pieces them together.

And every Christmas card needs a dash of sparkle!

Have you thought about joining my team of demonstrators?  Team Events, cooperative sharing, discounts, incentives, and so much more!

Happy Wednesday!  Before I run off to teach a class tonight, I wanted to share with you this cute card inspired by my friend in Idaho.  Make a cute mouse using the Fox Builder Punch (ears using the Owl Builder Punch):

I had a lot of fun teaching this one at the Hamilton Quilt & Craft Show;everyone had their own little rendition of a mouse.

Lovely As A Tree – Classic Christmas

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Every year I pull out my Lovely As A Tree and make some version of this technique.  So effective, lovely and easy!

This year I’ve used Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry:

I paired up Lovely as a Tree with Merriest Wishes, which has a cool dotted set which I used here for the “snow”.

Add a little glitter and it looks amazing!

My share today is using the new Frosted Medallions stamp set. I fell in love with this entire collection!
stampin-up-frosted-medallions-watercolour-emboss-resist-double-front-card
I made this card into a double front card – simple but something just a little bit different.  Basically, this is a concept of making two cards and inserting them one inside the other.
stampin-up-frosted-medallions-double-front-card-emboss stampin-up-frosted-medallions-christmas-double-front-card-emboss-resist
I stamped the medallion onto watercolour paper and white heat embossed.  Next I simply watercolour washed using an AquaPainter  with Soft Sky and Sweet Sugarplum ink.

I’m back on board!  After four fun days at the Hamilton Quilt & Craft Show, it’s taken me a day or so to unpack and get back into routine.  I have so many projects backlogged to publish, so let’s get started with one today!

Today’s share features the new Weather Together stamp set and die bundle – something cute a bit different to flowers.

I’m liking making swing cards at the moment, and this little umbrella is perfect for this style.

I’ve used Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim (two current favorite colours) with Mint Macaron.

The background is embossed with the ever-popular Softly Falling embossing folder.  This one has got to be my all time favorite . . . so far.
