In September, the much anticipated Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog will go live! In the meantime, the Carols of Christmas stamp set and dies have been released early for customers beginning today! When you saw information about this bundle last month, it was because the stamp set was part of a bonus offer for new Demonstrators who joined during July.
Here are samples of the beautiful cards you can make with this set! These are samples from Stampin’ Up! but I have seen many other samples from Demonstrators and everyone agrees this is a beautiful set. You will want to order yours as soon as possible! Get an early start on Christmas cards!
This card is fairly simple, using the die cut trees and deer and coloring the stamp with markers to get a multi-colored effect on the greeting.
I love the red on this card paired with the green and a bit of Copper Trim Ribbon behind the greeting.
If you want a different color scheme, these blues are beautiful using silver ribbon and sequin trim. This card uses the negative piece of paper after the trees are die cut.
A lot of young families like to send photo cards at Christmas. Here is an example of dressing up the photo with a piece of die cut vellum and Christmasy greeting and ribbon on the top.
This is my favorite sample because of the red and gold! So elegant and festive!
If you are wondering how you can make Christmas cards in August without Christmas paper, look in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog on page 188 and check out the Be Merry Designer Series Paper! This is very cute paper that will get you started until you have more choices in the Holiday Catalog!
It’s too hot in some places, like here in Houston, to do much of anything, so go ahead and treat yourself to this new Carols of Christmas Bundle and get a head start on Christmas! Put on some holiday music and pretend like it is snowing outside, as you run the a/c and wear your swimsuit or shorts!!
Remember to use your Bonus Coupons that you earned in July! You should have received an email immediately after you ordered from Stampin’ Up! with your codes. When you place your August order(s), you will see prompts on how to use your codes.
