SNEAK PEEK: Thankful for You & Holiday Catalog 2015 is Available!

OMG!  It's so hard to believe that August is nearly coming to a close.  Where did the summer go?  The kids in our community have returned to school, Halloween stuff is available in stores, and soon the weather will change.  

I LOVE the holidays, but they come and go so quickly.  Instead of fretting all of the frenzy, I always try to enjoy them by making handmade cards for each occasion--Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas--and sending them to my family, friends, and beloved customers.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog 2015 will launch soon.  There's so much good stuff in this Catalog, it's going to be hard to take it all in.  I promise!  

When I saw the Thankful Forest Friends Stamp Set and the Into the Woods product suite (pp. 42-43), I knew I had to have it all!

As soon as my preorder touched down, I got right to work on these Thankful for You Cards.  I selected my favorite sheet of Into the Woods Designer Series Paper, which has so many great designs, and the rest is pretty much crafting history.  Of the three cards I made, the one with the bear is my favorite.

I stamped the bear in Early Espresso ink onto a half-cut circle that I die cut using the Circle Collection Framelits Dies.  I then stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie onto a piece of 2-1/8" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I then embossed a piece of 2-1/2" x 4-1/4" piece of Rich Razzleberry with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.

I layered everything together with Fast Fuse with the exception of the bear on the die cut half circle.  I put Stampin' Dimensionals behind it.  I finished this card off by adhering one of the Into the Woods Elements with a Mini Glue Dot and adding a Linen Thread bow with a dot of glue from our new Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  It's amazing and perfect for adhering tiny embellishments and die cut pieces.

Prepping swaps.

I like the card with the bear so much, I decided it would be the perfect card for a swap I'm participating in.  I hope my fellow demonstrators like it as much as I do!

My swaps are ready to go!
