The new 2018 Holiday Catalog is HERE and it’s chock full of awesome new fall and winter products.  Stamps and dies, punches and Blends, Designer Series Paper and fantastic embellishments!  You may view the Holiday Catalog online here or contact me today for your free copy!

We used just a few of these new products is this month’s Christmas Card Club and everyone made some beautiful Christmas Cards.

DASHING ALONG DESIGNER SERIES PAPERS

AND DASHING DEER BUNDLE

Dashing Deer

Here’s one of the cards we made using the Detailed Deer Thinlits mounted on Cherry Cobbler Cardstock embossed with the Hardwood Plank Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Cherry Cobbler is a long time favorite color, a rich, vintage color.  So simple and so elegant!  The sentiment is from the new Timeless Tidings Stamp Set.

These cards, also, were made using this lovely Bundle.

All of these cards were created using the gorgeous NEW Dashing Along Designer Series Paper.  During September, if you host a qualifying party or place a qualifying order, it’s FREE!!  This offer only runs through September 30th.  Click here to read more!

Another new favorite from the new Holiday Catalog is the Flourish Filigree Stamp Set, which coordinates with the Pretty Little Label Punch.  That’s one of the absolute BEST things about Stampin’ Up! products–everything is coordinated for you!

Fluorish Filigree Christmas

The center and sentiment are stamped in Soft Suede, another of my favorite go-to products.  The sentiment was punched out with the Pretty Label Punch.  I also punched out a Real Red piece, then cut in half and adhered it to the back of the sentiment.  After I attached a strip of the Very Vanilla Tea Room Ribbon, I adhered the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Easy elegance!  Another great thing about this Flourish Filigree stamp set is that there are also Thanksgiving sentiments with it, making it even more versatile.

And the coordinating Pretty Label Punch.

Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper

August started off as one of the coolest on record here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia, which was quite appropriate, since the Christmas Card Club kicked off on August 2nd!   We made 4 cards and all the ladies were delighted to get a head start on their Christmas cards.

Under the Mistletoe Christmas Cards

We created 2 each of the 4 designs using both Under the Mistletoe and Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Papers.

christmas card 0818 tree

This card was actually created using the Sheet Music Background Stamp.  The Stamparatus is an absolute life saver for stamping Background Stamps and really helped in creating the background for the Lovely as a Tree Stamp stamped in Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Ink.  It’s mounted on Cherry Cobbler cardstock, so to complete the vintage feel I used a strip of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and a touch of Vintage Lace.  Elegant and easy!

Christmas club 0818 pinecones

I mounted a strip of one of the plaids from the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.  The pine bough and pine cones are from the Christmas Pines Stamp Set and the coordinated Pretty Pines Thinlits.  The pine bough is stamped in Shaded Spruce.

Christmas club 0818 squares

This card really shows off the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper!  Mounted on Early Espresso cardstock with a Copper Foil strip and a couple of sprigs from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.

christmas club 0818 Bethlehem

The first time I saw this pattern in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, I knew it would be a perfect starry night background.  Combined here with the Night in Bethlehem Stamp and coordinated Thinlits set using Night of Navy, a favorite neutral.  The Stamparatus was used to stamp the sentiment and made placement so much easier!

Garden Impressions One Sheet Wonder Cards

Garden Impressions One Sheet Wonder Cards

What a wonderful summer it’s been for the Stewart house!  Lots of times with grands and kids equals pure bliss!  One of the things I love about spring and summer (and even fall) is all the flowers that are blooming.  The Abstract Impressions Suite has coordinating floral stamps and floral dies, and the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper coordinated beautifully to help create some beautiful projects.

Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper

I decided I wanted to do a One Sheet Wonder Class using the 6 X 6 Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.  I was inspired by the template and card designs of Rebecca Urban, another talented Stampin’ Up Demonstrator.  Here are the cards we made in this fun class.

one sheet wonder Garden Impressions

This paper was just perfect for this Class to show how you can stretch our Stampin’ Up Designer Series Papers and get more bang for your buck!  I used Soft Sea Foam and Calypso Coral Cardstock and Stampin’ Inks.  The sentiments are from the Ribbon of Courage and the Beautiful Day Stamp Sets.  So quick and easy!!  Next I want to try a 12 X 12 One Sheet Wonder Class, and I’m sure the new Christmas Designer Series Papers will inspire me.

The Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper is just one the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE Select Designer Series Paper Sale.  This sale ENDS July 31st, so now’s the time to place your order!  Go to my online store at http://www.craftingonthehill.stampinup.net to see all the “pretty papers” that are on sale, or see my July 3rd post for pictures of them.  Either way, NOW is the time to shop!

“You Can Make It” Beautiful Day Bundle

One of the fantastic new things added in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog is the “You Can Make It” Project Ideas that you can purchase a Bundle.  What a fabulous idea!  One Item number to purchase everything you need to make the project.  I decided I really wanted to play with the Beautiful Day Stamps Set and make a set of the cards.

Beautiful Day Craft Project

I stamped the images with the Memento Ink Pad, then colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  I didn’t want to stop!

I started with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Combo, then decided to also use the Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos, also. Bright and colorful and a very quick project.

beautiful day butterflies

The flower stamped called out to me, too, so I colored those in Calypso Coral and Lovely Lipstick.   I used Old Olive for the leaves and Daffodil Delight Dark for the flower centers.  Aren’t they just lovely?  And remarkably quick to create such beautiful projects!

beautiful day flowers

Here’s what’s included in the Beautiful Day Cards Supplies Set, Item 149042.  Note cards and envelopes, Beautiful Day Stamp Set, Stampin’ Block, Ink, Stampin’ Blends and twine.  Fun!
