2016 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop HeaderHello again! The 2016 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue has now been live for 4 days – and what an amazing catalogue it is! I have a HUGE wishlist (which I’ve only just touched surface of!), and I bet you all do too! :D

To celebrate the catalogue launch, myself and 24 other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the ESAD Facebook group have put together a blog hop of inspiration for you. You’ve possibly started the hop with me, or may have jumped from the incredibly talented Nicole Wilson.

ESAD Informationinbetween lineFor my projects, I made a Xmas card and wine bottle gift tag.

IMG_0693
For the card, I used a card base of Crumb Cake. I matted a 9x13cm piece of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper on a 9.3×13.3cm piece of Real Red cardstock; then glued this on the card front. On a 4.5×14.5cm piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped a sentiment from Wonderful Year using Early Espresso ink. Along the bottom, I glued a strip of Silver Foil Sheet. This was then stuck down to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Cookie-Cutter Christmas bundle, I stamped a reindeer on Crumb Cake cardstock with Early Espresso ink, and punched it out with the co-ordinating Cookie Cutter punch. For the reindeer’s nose, I punched a circle of Red Glimmer Paper, and trimmed the top off it slightly. This was stuck down with a trimmed Stampin’ Dimensional.

A few loops of the red metallic thread from the Combo Pack were held in place on the card front with a Glue Dot, and the reindeer was stuck down with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Sequins and rhinestones finished off the card. Here it is:

IMG_0680inbetween lineFor the wine bottle gift tag, I used a piece of Real Red cardstock, cut to 7x21cm. This was scored at 14cm lengthways, and the top of the tag was punched in the center with a 1-1/4″ circle punch.

The tag was stamped with the stars image from Tin Of Tags, using Crumb Cake ink. The tag was sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake ink as well. On a 7×11.5cm piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped a sentiment from Tin Of Tags which I had coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers. This piece of cardstock was then finished off with a strip of Silver Foil Sheet on the top and bottom, and the whole piece was stuck onto the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A gingerbread house was cut from the Candy Cane Lane DSP, and the roof was given a brush of clear Wink Of Stella. The house was then stuck down on the Whisper White with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s the finished tag:
