New from Stampin' Up! the We Must Celebrate

We Must Celebrate Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

It's a busy time of year with holiday prep.  There's presents to wrap, cookies to bake and shopping to be done.  But it sure is great to sneak in a little play time in your stamp room.  Today, I'm playing with the "We Must Celebrate" stamp set from the upcoming Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  I knew as soon as I saw this stamp set that I would have to have these little guys.  They're just so stinkin' cute!

We Must Celebrate Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog 2018

I have a confession to make.  I started off coloring my little creatures in realistic colors, but I got bored with that idea.  These fun little guys deserve some color.  So I pulled out my Stampin' Blends and started coloring.  The results are much happier.  I used Calypso Coral for Mr. Squirrel, Pool Party for raccoon.  Then, I went with 2 colors for the cutie patootie bear.  I colored his belly with my light Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend and I color the rest of him with my Daffodil Delight pair.  Little bunny has shades of Pink Pirouette and Smoky Slate.

To continue with my happy color theme, I stamped my sentiment 3 times on 3 different card stocks-Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Calypso Coral.  Then, I snipped different words from each color.

Smitten Mittens & Hug in a Mug

Smitten Mittens, Hug in a Mug

Hello Friends,

Just 2 Days and counting until the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog begins.  It's so much more than just a Holiday Catalog.  It's more like a cool season catalog.  You know, snuggle up with a blanket and a book and some Hot Chocolate weather.  

For today's projects I am pairing up the Smitten Mittens Bundle with the Hug in a Mug Stamp Set.  To me, they naturally compliment each other.  What do you think?  Mittens and Hot Chocolate?

Hug in a Mug, Smitten Mittens

See what I mean?  I bought these paper Hot Cups with Lids and sleeves for my Holiday Catalog Launch Party tomorrow.  I stamped my sleeve with Chocolate Chip ink  and the Hug in a Mug Stamp Set.  Then, I framed it with a pair of mittens cut with the Many Mittens Framelits Dies.

And for my Sending Warm Thoughts Card, I again stamped with the Hug in a Mug stamp set.  Only this time, I used the smaller pair of mittens from the Smitten Mittens Bundle.  Of course the Cable Knit Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder added to the knit mittens look.

Santa's Suit Sneak Peek

Santa's Suit Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Tick, Tock, it's countdown time!  The 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog goes live on September 1.  That's just days away.  Thought you might like a Santa's Suit Sneak Peek.  Love this little bundle, but I'm especially fond of Santa in his long Johns.

Santa's Suit Stampin' Up!

To dress Santa in his plaid long johns, I used the paper piecing technique.  I simply stamped Santa twice-once on plaid designer paper (Quilted Christmas) and once on Whisper White.  Then, I trimmed off the head, hands and feet from the plaid and pieced it on the white.  I colored Santa's skin with Powder Pink Ink.
