Welcome to this month’s ICS blog hop – Knotty Ways. All Along the hop, you will see amazing Christmas projects to get you in the mood to start thinking about the holidays! I have a great card to share featuring our new Ready for Christmas set!
Yes, it might be a little early for the holidays, but for all of you crafters out there, you know that if you want to have a handmade holiday, it’s time to start thinking about it soon. A few weeks ago, I was extremely lucky and truly blessed to get to attend the Stampin’ Up! incentive trip to Thailand. While I was there, they showered us with all sorts of amazing gifts, some of which (of course) were new products from the Holiday Catalog. Because of that, I had a lot of holiday products to choose from for today’s project. In fact, all this week I am doing sneak peeks of items that are going to be in our Holiday Catalog. Today is actually day five of my week of sneak peeks. Here’s what I put together.
I made this card with the Ready for Christmas Bundle that includes the Ready for Christmas stamp set and Christmas Staircase thinlits dies. When I saw the sample projects made with this set, I was absolutely blown away. Mind blown. For real. That’s why I wanted to showcase this set during today’s hop.
Can you believe all the pieces that come in this set? I think it’s amazing. I don’t think the Stampin’ Up! creative team left anything out of this set. They included a Christmas tree, the evergreen garland, stockings, ornaments, the star, cookies for Santa, the nosy puppy dog wearing an ugly/cute Christmas sweater, the lovely staircase, and some beautiful artwork for the wall…not to mention some nice greetings. Amazing.
As you can see above, I decided to make this a tri-fold card, so that the recipient has several layers to open up before getting to the greeting inside. I’m planning to make a video (the video is now posted below) to show how to do the special fold on this card, with the tree and staircase attached on each side. If you would like to see it, make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see the video when I post it. (just kidding – here it is!)
If you haven’t heard, you can actually start ordering holiday products today! We have an Early Release of the Carols of Christmas Bundle set that is already available for ordering. Here’s a quick pic of it:
I have already shared several project samples made with this set, just in the last few days. Check them out if you like, but make sure to continue along the blog hop so you don’t miss out on the rest of the projects.
After seeing the projects made with some of this year’s holiday products, are you excited to see ALL of the new holiday products? Anyone signing up with Stampin’ Up! this month will get immediate access to the digital version of the Holiday Catalog online, and will be able to pre-order holiday products the same day. You can even include holiday products in your starter kit! If you’re interested please contact me or your demonstrator for more info.
Aren’t all of the little pieces and parts on this card just amazing? I give three cheers for the Ready for Christmas set, because it’s all in the details…
