Colour Your World Blog Hop! Quilted Christmas Bundle

Colour Your WOrld banner

Today is  Colour Your World Blog Hop with my demonstrator friends from around the world.  We make projects using the colour palette of the month. Don't you love these colours for August? So gorgeous and summery!

 My card today uses the Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red.  The challenge is to use all or some of the colours each month.

Colour Your World Blog Hop Quilted Christmas Bundle 7 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

I used the Quilted Christmas Bundle from the new 2017 Holiday Catalogue which will be released to you on September 1st.  I wanted to show how to use the Christmas Quilt Stamp Set and Quilt Builder Framelits Dies for a non-Christmas card.  I created the "quilt" piece by cutting out several pieces of Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper with the die and then piecing them together to create the different colours.

I used the Glad Press & Seal and pressed the die-cut pieces onto the surface and carefully removed the die.  That way the pieces stayed in shape and made it easy to piece them in the frame.

I cut out the square frame from Whisper White and applied a generous amount of Fast Fuse.  I then cut out the frame and inner "star" die from the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and placed it paper side down on the Whisper White layer.

Press down the frame so that the frame transfers to the base.  Carefully peel off the die.

It's really simple to peel off the different colour squares of Designer Series paper and press them the frame.

I love the other dies in the Quilt Builder Framelits include the "needle" and the "spool".

Here are the products in today's card (some will not be available until September 1st):

Joy to the World!

I'm having fun playing with all the new products in my Holiday Catalogue preorder.  As a demonstrator I get to order a month earlier than customers, another great reason to join my Stampin' Up! team! 

Hearts Come Home 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

Today's card used a brand new Designer Series Paper called Merry Little Christmas which features a black and white colour scheme and tranditional Chritmas Carol music.  It's my favourite new product.  I cut the little banners to 3 3/4" x 1" and used the Banner Triple Punch to trim one end.

Merry Little Christmas DSP 3 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

Have you noticed the Mini Sequin trim in the Annual Catalogue? It comes in silver, gold and black.  You can use it as is or you can remove them individually from the string and use as sequins on your project.  The little silver accent is from the Year of Cheer Embellishments which includes 24 metal pieces in gold and silver.

This is a really fast and simple card to make for Christmas!

Card Swap Sunday - Delightful Daisy

It's my Card Swap Sunday when I share a card I've created for a swap or received in a swap.  This card was designed by my friend Lisa Althouse who is an amazing stamping in Lethbridge, AB.  She presented at the April On Stage event and featured ideas using the Delightful Daisy Bundle.  This was one of her cards on the display.

Sunday Swap Card Delightful Daisy Suite 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

Lisa started with the gorgeous Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper which features bold watercolour images on one side and softer geometrics on the reverse.

  • 12 sheets,  6 designs, 2 of each double-sided
  • Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pool Party, Tranquil Tide, Whisper White

Sunday Swap Card Delightful Daisy Suite 3 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

I love two step stamping sets like these daisies and since the Daisy Delight set is photopolymer you can see exactly where to place the elements.

BB Carols of Christmas 3 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

When I first saw the Holiday Catalogue I fell in love with the black and white colour theme with some of the Designer Series Paper and other embellishments.    I created the two colour holly and berry image by using my Stampin' Write markers directly on the rubber and then stamped on the cardstock.  This stamp has a matching framelit if you want to cut it out and pop it up.

The Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper is my favourite and features the actual music from some of our favourite Christmas Carols including Deck the Halls, Silent Night and Jingle Bells.

Here are some "sneak peeks" of the cards from this month's free tutorial.
