Hey folks! As we get ready for the launch of the new Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter catalogue in September I thought it would be fun to make some cards using winter sets but for different occasions. First Frost is such a pretty stamp set and has some lovely festive sentiments, but it also works well all year around.
I shared another card using this stamp set a few weeks ago as part of Christmas in July, and loved it so much that I thought I would re-create it for one of my Sister-in-Law’s birthdays too!
To make it more summer-y I’ve mixed up the colour palette, using; Terracotta Tile, Grapefruit Grove, Call Me Clover and Blackberry Bliss for a really bright card.
The stamping here is in two sections with the sentiment piece laid over the top. At first this card was really quite flat, but I added some extra stamping with some die cut pieces to really make it special
The card is finished with a sentiment using the Well Said stamp set and Well Written Dies, and a trio of In Colour Faceted Dots in Terracotta Tile
Hey folks! So, after a couple of blog posts of other bits and pieces, I’m back with another Christmas in July card! I LOVE the First Frost stamp set, and although it’s in with the Christmas stamps in the catalogue I totally use it all year around. Today I do have a Christmas Card using it, but how pretty would this be for a Birthday, or Just Because?
I always prefer less traditional colours at Christmas. I mean, I don’t mind Red and Green, but I’m always pulled more towards cooler colours; blues and silver. So, the colours here are Coastal Cabana, Pretty Peacock, Granny Apply Green and Flirty Flamingo.
The sentiment is taken from another Stamp set; Merry Christmas to All and the coordinating Merry Christmas Dies.
The Merry is die cut from Silver Foil Paper, and then the stamp is in Pretty Peacock.
Pretty Peacock is one of this years Brand New In Colours, and I am in LOVE with it! I’ve re-opened sign ups for my 2019-2021 In Colour Club, but will close it again on Sunday night, CLICK HERE to find out more and join in!
StampinByHannah International Blog Highlights | Congratulations with Frosted Florals
Wow… these Blog Highlights come around quicker and quicker don’t they? This month’s theme is Congratulations! and I think we have the most perfect stamp set for Congratulations cards in the new Autumn Winter catalogue. First Frost has the most beautiful mixture of pretty florals and festive phrases, but there is also a Congratulations in there too….
This stamp set is part of my favourite suite in the new catalogue… I mean, it’s got watercolour effect flowers, and shimmery Designer Series Paper…. what’s not to love?!
I’ve not used the Designer Series Paper on this card, instead I’ve stuck with stamping and die cutting with the coordinating dies and created this fun layered card. I did however, use the Paper on THIS card from last weekend!
The first layer is some tone on tone, Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake Card Stock stamping, and then I’ve used Mint Macaron, Flirty Flamingo and Highland Heather for the die cut leaves and flowers
I almost added Rhinestones or Pearls…. but then I changed my mine and chose to keep things simple, finishing the card with the sentiment stamped in Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla card stock.
