I don’t wish to worry you but it’s only one month to Christmas Eve! If you’re anything like me you’ve still got a heap of things to do and are fast running out of time to do them. So perhaps today’s Simple Sunday Project will help.
FEELS LIKE FROST
I must admit that I’m still in love with the scene images in the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper. For this project I began by using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the sheet to the flap on a Whisper White Medium Envelope. Then with my Paper Snips I cut the sheet to shape using the edge of the flap as a guide.
From what was left I cut a 3-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ piece and mounted it onto some Night of Navy Card.
At this point I decided to make my card base from Thick Whisper White Card. I cut and scored the card using my new Paper Trimmer. Then I folded the card along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder.
For my sentiment I pulled out one of my favourites for this year “Sending warm Christmas wishes” from the Rustic Retreat Stamp Set. Then I simply stamped it directly onto my card base using Night of Navy ink.
Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I attached the mounted DSP to the card base to finish off the front.
That just left the inside to decorate.
In the end I found another piece of the same DSP and cut a 3/4″ strip off one side and trimmed it down to 5-1/4″ high. Then with liquid glue I fixed it to a layer of Whisper White Card before adding it to the inside of my card base.
This really was a simple card that only took about 10 minutes to make. However if you wanted to you could dress it up with a little ribbon. You could even add some bling using glitter, sequins or rhinestones.
And the left over piece from the first sheet? That ended up as the shaker tag I showed you in my blog post Shake it up with Ice Stampin’ Glitter.
In a little over a week’s time Stampin’ Up! will reveal the items from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue that will be retiring. We’ve already been told that the Delicata ink pads and refills and the Moose Punch are no longer available. What’s more, it’s very rare for any of the Designer Series Paper like the Feels Like Frost DSP used today to be carried over.
I have no idea how much stock of the various DSP packs from the Holiday Catalogue Stampin’ Up! have in the warehouse. But I suspect that many of the DSP packs will sell out quickly once the retiring list is announced. So if you really want the Feels Like Frost DSP (or any other DSP from the Holiday Catalogue) I suggest you order it now.
UPDATED – The Feels Like Frost DSP was withdrawn in December 2019. However is will be available once more with the release of the August to December 2020 Mini Catalogue.
The Let It Snow 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper is currently not orderable but further stocks are expected week beginning December 2nd.
