New Cards using Holiday Mini Catalog




All the following cards we made using stamp sets from the Holiday Mini Catalog. This mini should be arriving in your mailboxes soon. If you don't receive one by Sept 4th, please feel free to let me know and I can mail you one. The Holiday Mini runs Sept 1-Jan 4. You should have plenty of time to get all the great things you need.
The first card is made using Cold & Cuddly Stamp Set. This is a "different" set from what we normally see. It has a polar bear, penguin, and walrus all for the north pole setting. For this card we using Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Mellow Moss, and Whisper White. We also used the masking technique and some Mellow Moss Grograin Ribbon.
Serene Snowflakes is the featured set on the middle card. Although you can't really tell on the scanned image, the large cut out snowflake is stamped with "Frost White Shimmer Paint." This is a new product offered in the Mini catalog. I think it looks great! In the center of the large snowflake I added a Filigree Designer Brad. I also added just a little White Satin Ribbon to offset the card a little bit. The greeting is from the Sincere Salutations stamp set. Card colors are Bordering Blue, Night of Navy, Silver, and Whisper White.
This last card is made using the Autumn Splendor Stamp Set. The saying is from the set On Your Birthday. The patterned paper is also from the mini catalog and is called Autumn Meadows. I've also added some Chocolate Chip Taffetta Ribbon. The colors on this card are: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Really Rust and Taken with Teal.
These 3 cards will also be featured at my card class in September! Sign up NOW! You can check out details for the class at http://www.elizabethgiles.stampinup.net/ under "my calendar"
