Christmas is coming faster than you think (it’s less than 8 weeks to go!!!) and Stampin” Up!’s brand new “Christmastime Is Here Suite” has just been released today.
You won’t find this suite in the Holiday Catalogue because it is a special release, but you can order it online here. All of the products can either be ordered together or individually. This video gives you closer look at all the goodies you get in this suite, including a gorgeous gold bangle in it’s own gift box to either keep for yourself or give to a special friend.
What I love about this suite is its versatility. Yes, it is a Christmas suite but it’s also perfect for birthdays, which is why I decided to make a birthday card to share with you today.
After stamping the largest image in Memento ink onto Whisper White card stock I used my marker pens in Rococo Rose, Mossy Meadow and Gray Granite to colour directly onto the stamped image, creating the darker shades.
I then used a blender pen (the clear blender pen, NOT the stampin blends) to take colour off the nib of my markers and coloured in the rest of the image. Colouring with the blender pen provides the lighter shades of these colours.
Isn’t the background designer series paper in Mossy Meadow so elegant? It’s one of the DSPs from this stunning suite.
I really wanted to use Rococo Rose to colour my rose so it would co-ordinate with the Scalloped linen ribbon. The “For You” sentiment and the die cut white branches sitting behind the rose are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and its co-ordinating Bouquet Bunch Dies, finished off with a little double bow of Linen Thread.
I’ll be sharing some more cards I’ve made with suite over the next few week, so keep a look out for my posts.
To purchase any of the products I used in this project you can shop with me here.
