Today’s the day! The eagerly awaited Snowflake Showcase suite of products from Stampin’ Up! is now available for customers to buy. Talking to my customers, I foresee a blizzard of wishes on their way to me today. Most are eager to ensure that they can get their orders in early before these limited availability items sell out.
One of the things I love about this suite is how easy it is to create pretty projects without a whole lot of effort. With Christmas fast approaching that’s becoming more and more of a consideration.
A SIMPLE START
I started this project with a piece of Thick Whisper White Card that I cut and scored using my Stampin’ Trimmer. Then I folded it along the scored line and sharpened the crease with my Bone Folder.
Next I took some Balmy Blue Card and using VersaMark ink, stamped the dotted image from the Snow Is Glistening Stamp Set all over the piece. With that done I then attached it to a layer of Night of Navy Card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow), before adding it to the front of the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
With the background done the snowflakes were needed next.
I began by attaching Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to some Sparkle and Silver Glimmer Paper. Then, using my Big Shot with a variety of the dies from the Snowfall Thinlits, I cut out the Glimmer Paper.
Finally, after keeping four of the smaller ones for later, I peeled the backing off the die-cut snowflakes and attached them to the Balmy Blue layer.
BLIZZARD OF WISHES
The blizzard of wishes sentiment comes from the Snow is Glistening Stamp Set. It was perfect for this project and I stamped it onto Thick Whisper White Card with Night of Navy ink.
Once stamped I cut out the sentiment using the Big Shot and the #3 oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Then the sentiment was fixed to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To complete the front I peeled the backing off two of my reserved snowflakes and added those to the sentiment.
Obviously the die-cut snowflakes had to be the coordinating element for the project and I still had two left.
I fixed one to a layer of Whisper White Card, in the centre near the top. This layer was then attached to the inside of the card base with liquid glue.
Finally the last snowflake was added to the centre of the flap on a Whisper White Envelope and I was done.
For today’s project I used the Snow Is Glistening and Snowfall Thinlits Dies from the Snowflake Showcase suite. Also in the suite is the Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set, 12″ x 12″ White Velvet Paper, and low-profile Snowflake Trinkets.
I should also point out that the Snowfall Thinlits Dies coordinate with images from both the Snow Is Glistening and Happiness Surrounds Stamp Sets.
Here’s the official Stampin’ Up! video launch for the Snowflake Showcase suite.
All these items are available from today until the end of November – but only while stocks last. Mind you, if the reaction of my customers is anything to go by, I doubt that they’ll last that long. My advice if you want any or all of these items is to order them today. These are limited edition products and when stocks are gone, that will be it.
Although I didn’t use all the products in the suite on my project today, I’ll have links to all of them at the end of my product list to make it easier for you to see and buy them.
