Hi! and welcome to a sneak peek of the Stampin’ Up 2018 Holiday Catalog. I love designing cards with birds, so Owl (his name) from the Still Night Bundle was in my pre-order. Isn’t Owl grand, sitting on his branch?
Owl was really quite easy to color with Stampin’ Blends, because his stamp has so many lines of detail. I stamped him in Tuxedo Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock, and used four Stampin’ Blends for coloring: Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Ivory and Bronze.
I was able to cut Owl with his die from the Night Owl Dies set, along with the branch he is perched on, and the Garden Green pine boughs. As I was die cutting the branch in Soft Suede and Whisper White, I noticed how much it looked like the branches in the Woodland embossing folder.
I thought Owl would be happy in this setting, so I embossed Whisper White cardstock with the Woodland embossing folder, and glued it to a Thick Whisper White card base.
The sentiment, “Season’s Greetings From Our Home To Yours,” is in the Merry Christmas to All bundle. The striped edge on the label is Cherry Cobbler, and I used the Stamparatus to make sure the Soft Suede words stamped in the middle. The label has a die for cutting. Yay!
Owl is quite proud of his image, and wants to be entered in the CAS(E) this sketch challenge.
Just one more detail, decorating the envelope flap. This Designer Series Paper is the reverse side of the plaid paper Owl chose for photographing. It’s part of the Festive Farmhouse collection.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of the 2018 Holiday Catalog. Most of the products are listed below, and I think I named the ones that aren’t pictured. All will be available September 1st. Start making your lists!
