New goodies arrived on my doorstep the other day. I knew they arrived because my Ring Doorbell System showed me that the delivery man rang my doorbell. I actually got so excited, I screenshot it….. I’m ignoring the fact that this is probably considered stalking by many people, but I was just so happy to see that big brown box!
The box arrived in time for our newest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. This fabulous sketch has been designed by Jen Mitchell. Jen’s use of colours and perfect stamp choices had me at hello long before I joined the Clean Team.
This post coincides with the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue going live today. Many of the products I’ve used on my card can be purchased from this Catalogue.
I really love a sentiment die combined with a stamped sentiment. I can see the amazing sentiments I’ve used on my card will be worn out before Christmas as they are the perfect font and perfect size for my cards. The thinlits and stamp set are from a bundle called Merry Christmas To All Bundle – these were the first to go on my wish list. I’ve stamped with Cherry Cobbler Ink and used the matching Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.
The yummy Striped Burlap Trim I’ve layered under my sentiment is also from the new catalogue. To give a bit of definition to the background on my card I also used my new Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Another must on my wish list was the Peaceful Noel Bundle. This consists of the Peaceful Noel Stamp Set and Sprig Punch. I’ve punched a few sprigs and also stamped a sprig from the stamp set and gave it a quick watercolour – it was only after I’d coloured my sprigs, did I realise this set is a two step stamp set and the set comes with a stamp to colour the centre…..oh well, they only took a few mins to colour.
Here’s my card:
