Holiday Hoopla: Santa’s Workshop Suite

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is watching the Christmas show Santa Claus is Coming to Town.  That’s what the Santa’s Workshop Suite reminds me of and Katie’s display really showcases the adorable products found in the Signs of Santa stamp set, the coordinating Santa’s Signpost Framelits, the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series Specialty Paper, Memories & More Cards, as well as the Santa’s Bags, Enamel Shapes, Garden Green Bakers twine and the Poppy Parade Ribbon.

For this lovely framed art piece, Katie picked out some of the different sized cards from the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Cards Pack.  She then mounted them on Pool Party and Poppy Parade cardstock, added some embellishments and she’s got a decor’ piece anyone would be proud to bring out year after year.

Next, she used more of the Memories & More Card Pack cards and the Garden Green Bakers Twine and layered it on the Memories & More Card bases that come with envelopes.  Can we talk about EASY & Cute.

Here’s another one using the card pack and envelopes.

On this tree card holder, Katie created some cards using the Santa’s Workshop DSP as well as the Candy Cane Season stamp set and coordinating Candy Cane Builder Punch.  And here’s another framed art piece using more of the great images and accessories from the suite.

Now we’re on to treat packaging.  Check out the foil wrapped chocolates wrapped with Santa’s Workshop DSP, a little elf, die cut from the DSP and a ribbon bow.  The candy cane package holds Hot Chocolate.  It makes a great little secret Santa gift to leave on a co-workers desk.

Did you notice the muslin bags featured on page 19 of the Holiday Catalog?  They’re called Santa’s Bags and Katie filled a Stampin’ Spritzer with rubbing alcohol and Garden Green Re-inker and spritzed the bags to make them a festive green.  The tag & Mrs Claus come from the Signs of Santa stamp set and are cut out with the Santa’s Signpost Framelits.

This cute pouch made from the Santa’s Workshop DSP is perfect to through some candies in  and put in a stocking.

Katie added a special treat to her display.  She had Christmas cut out cookies specially made to coordinate with the Santa’s Workshop Suite.  Needless to say these were a huge hit at our event.

Tomorrow I’ll share close up photos of my display which features the Merry Christmas to All Mega Suite.

Holiday Hoopla: Beautiful Blizzard

It’s much too early for winter, but certainly not too early to share Julie’s Beautiful Blizzard Bundle display from our Stampin’ Sisters Holiday Hoopla.

While I loved all aspects of Julie’s display, I must confess that this shadowbox card was my favorite.  She used the Big Shot Embossing Mats with the Blizzard Thinlits Die to add texture to the front panel of the card while both the inside and outside are adorned with snowflakes cut from the same framelit.  Beautiful!

Here she used the what remains after separating the cut out flowers from the cardstock.  It makes a gorgeous background.

Snowflake images stamped in Versamark and embossed in White Embossing Powder and then a wash of color with the Aqua Painters and reinkers makes a stunning background!

We’ve got stamped snowflakes and die cut snowflakes on this pretty card.

The contrast of Whisper White and Blueberry Bushel with accents of silver are stunning here.

Blue Brusho and a Stampin’ Spritzer were used for the background of this “Missing Middle” card.  A window Sheet panel is what holds it all together.  Ingenious!Stampin' Up! Beautiful Blizzard Bundle, Stampin' Sisters Holiday Hoopla, Stampin' Studio

Two shades of blue and some Sparkle Glimmer Paper make this card extra special.

If you want to make a simple yet stunning card this year, this may just be IT!  Julie used the Silver Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes for this. They come 20 cards & 20 Envelopes in a package, and all she added was ink and the stamps…no layers or anything and look how stunning they are!

And finally, look at the beautiful treat box decorated up for someone special.  Oh wait,  did you notice the magnetic clips that are decked out with snowflakes cut from the Blizzard Die!  How sweet!

Tomorrow’s display is Katie’s Santa Workshop Suite, so be sure to come back to check that out!

Holiday Hoopla: Country Lane Suite

Today I’m sharing Kim’s Country Lane Suite from our Stampin’ Sisters Holiday Hoopla.  Kim did an amazing job with this down home rustic suite that is perfect for the Farm House look that’s so popular in design these days.  The Country Lane Suite features the Country Home stamp set, Country Lane Designer Series Paper, Braided Linen Trim, Chicken Wire Elements, Galvanized Metallic Paper, Galvanized Clips, Tin Tile Embossing Folder and new Stampin’ Blends in Blackberry Bliss and Cajun Craze.  Let’s take a close look at how Kim used some of these products.

The milk can is my favorite stamp in this set and Kim simply stamped it on cardstock and cut it out.  Super simple and super cute.

For this card she stamped the milk can on Whisper White cardstock and used the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends to color the can and add depth to it.  I love how Kim used the strips of the Country Lane DSP.

Here, she stamped it on the Galvanized Metallic Sheets and added some of the Linen Trim behind the circle.

You can see the gorgeous texture of the Tin Tile Embossing Folder paired with the Galvanized Metallic Sheets.

Here she used the watering can and colored it in with the Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends.  After adding the arrangement in the can, she outlined the entire image with a Stampin’ Blends marker.  How Clever!
