Plaid Tidings – Not Just for Christmas. I am back again today with another in my mini series of sneak peeks of products coming very soon in the new August to December Mini Catalogue. I have sent out a copy to all my current customers and will be offering to send them to others as soon as the catalogue goes live.
My Anniversary! – Not Just for Christmas
I was not totally sure when this post was going to go live, but as it happens it could not have been a better day. Today marks the 4th Anniversary of making the decision to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I am so happy I decided to do this, it is my constant joy. Sharing my creations, and a few hints and tips along the way, is what I love to do. I work hard to make sure my customers get exceptional service, but it really doesn’t feel like work when you enjoy it as much as I do. My background is in a service industry, so it is just what I do. So having a sentiment ‘Wishing you the Happiest of Birthdays’ seems perfect!
Both my projects today use the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. I feel almost as though this is cheating a little because Plaid papers can be used any time of the year, so this was a very easy ‘Not Just for Christmas’. But I have tired to make my first card about as far away from a Traditional Christmas as I could. Using Magenta Madness with Black and White is about as far away as I could get. The sentiment is from Happiest of Birthdays, which I have only just bought. This is matted on some Black Glitter Paper and then I added Magenta Madness Ribbon and Dots. I would be very happy to receive this card and would never guess the paper was from a Christmas pack.
Just for Christmas
My Christmas version was actually more difficult. Having made a ‘Not Just for Christmas’ version all I could see was non Christmas projects, Bu I think I got there, eventually. Using the Peace & Joy Stamp set from the Mini Catalogue I turned the layout by a quarter turn, but otherwise it is identical. Still using White Heat Embossing for the sentiment, all die cut using one of the Stitched Rectangle dies.
To mirror the original card, I used the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper and Blue Adhesive Backed Gems. The gems come in two shades of blue, Balmy Blue, which I used here, and Night of Navy. Both are iridescent and stunning! The ribbon is Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and was carried over from last winter to the Annual Catalogue.
I should stress that for both cards, I ‘gutted’ the glimmer paper, it is too pretty to cover up and not use as much as possible. Both pieces are going to be large enough to do something else with. I show how I did this in the video today. Every video I do includes as many hints and tips as I possibly can get in them. I love being able to share what I have learnt over the years with others. It is the main reason I started my Stampin’ Up! Business and I am so grateful for all the support my Team Leader has given me, but also the amazing support from my own, growing, Team. Of course none of this would have been possible without my amazing Customers, so to all of you, I send my thanks. Thank you for having faith in me, I have got to know some of you quite well over the years, and look forward to getting to know more of you. Thank you!
