Sweet Stockings Sneak Peek from the Stampin' Up! July - December 2021 Mini Catalog


  • Puppy-themed Christmas Card using Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper
  • 15% off Select Designer Series Paper Sale - 1 July- 2 August 2021
  • Travelling?  Take along one of the new Kit Collections for easy crafting while away
Oh my!  My July-December 2021 Mini Catalog arrived and I'm obsessed with this darling dog from the Sweet Stockings Designing Series Paper.  I just had to create a card featuring this happy face!  Yes, I know its a little early to start showing Christmas cards, but why wait until the last minute when all of these new fall and holiday products will be available for customers to purchase beginning 3 August.  Demonstrators are able to preorder Mini Catalog items early, and I love taking advantage of these early purchase options.  I'm also using the new Gold Shimmer ribbon which works well with the Crumb Cake basecard as well as the coloring of this happy pup.  Just try not to grin when you look at the smile on this dog's face.  
Handmade Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper

The basecard for this card is Crumb Cake.  Then a die cut layer of either Cherry Cobbler or Evening Evergreen die cut using the Scalloped Contours Dies.  I couldn't decide which of those two colors worked the best, so I created a card using each.  I liked them both!

I used another die from the Scalloped Contours Dies to die cut the pup image from the Sweet Stocking 12 X 12" Designer Series Paper.  The background paper already included the gold stars and the stitched, scalloped boarder was created by the die.

I added a Gold Shimmer Ribbon (Item 156470) bow, another new item from the July-December 2021 Mini catalog, and I stamped a sentiment in Cherry Cobbler from the Tidings & Trimmings Stamp Set form the Annual Catalog.  The sentiment label is die cut from Basic White using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

You can see where I cut out the two pups from the 12 X 12 Sweet Stocking Designer Series Paper (item #1156281) , plus the beautiful Gold Shimmer Ribbon (item 156470), which will both be available 3 August for customers to order.  Customers who have ordered from me during the past 6 months will receive copies of the upcoming July- December 2021 Mini Catalog later this month so you can begin your Shopping List to be ready for 3 August ordering.  I know you're anxious to get started on your Fall and Holiday projects, and I hope today's card provides a bit of fun inspiration!

Kits to Take along or craft at home

Went I'm travelling, I love to take along craft projects to work on with family members and friends. I had fun with a couple of young ladies this week end playing with one of these convenient kits.  It's fun for all ages, and a great way to connect and catch up on each other's lives as you craft together. Its so easy when you're using the Kits Collection by Stampin' Up!
