Stampin'g Up! Timeless Tidings Stamp Set Sneak Peek from the Holiday Catalog

  • Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek with All is Bright Designer Series Paper
  • Stampin' Up! Timeless Tidings Stamp Set
  • Do you have your Second Assortment of watercolor pencils?

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek

I'm using the Stampin' Up All is Bright Designer Series Paper again today.  I've paired it with a new sentiment stamp set called Timeless Tidings Stamp set, another new Holiday set from Stampin' Up! that includes several beautiful sentiments plus a couple of holiday images you'll find useful for making cards, tags, gift bags, and Christmas wrappings.

Raise you hand if your Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Wish List has grown over the past several days.  Tell me you haven't started looking for more ideas on Pinterest or searched Google for new product ideas.  Yup.  Ideas are being shown all over the web, and if you're like me, you can't get enough of the new ideas for these new stamp set.  Be sure to also watch my web site as I highlight more and more items from the new catalog to help you see ideas for using these new items.  It will help you make your final selection before you're able to order from the new catalog on September 5.  



This card again uses the All Is Bright Designer Series Paper.  I've fallen in love with this particular print.  Paired with Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz cardstock, it really pulls the colors from this Designer Series print.    This card also introduces a new Holiday stamp set called Timeless Tidings, which I used for the sentiment on today's card.  It includes several wonderful holiday sentiments and I love the typeface used in this set.

Directions for today's card:

  • Mossy Meadow basecard  
  • Next layer is Pear Pizzazz  
  • Then the All Is Bright Designer Series Paper.
  • The image layer is a Gold Foil Sheet die cut with the Stitched Label Framelit.  The sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.  Then the sentiment is stamped again in Real Red and only the Word Christmas is fussy cut and popped up on Dimensionals on top of the Very Vanilla Oval.  
  • The sentiment oval is die cut using one of the ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies


  • The bow is the new Real Red 3/8" Mixed Satin Ribbon.  Its an updated twist on a standard grosgrain ribbon.  One half of the ribbon is embossed to look like the grosgrain, the other half is smooth.  Its attached with Glue Dots

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils and Coloring inside the Lines

  • Using watercolor pencils on the Inside the Line paper
  • Watercolor pencils techniques video
  • Occasions Catalog & Sale-A-Bration videos

Watercolor pencils with Inside the Line 

One of my favoite new items from the Occasions catalog is the water color pencils and this wonderful new Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper, a Sale-A-Bration free selection with a $50 order.  

This was one of the cards we made during OnStage.  We cut the Designer Paper into pieces and then colored only parts of the flower image and the bumble bee.  I'm in love with that big plump bumble bee!   This used dry watercolor Pencils.  I can't wait to try this same technique with the acquapainters.  Take a look at the video below to see different techniques with these new watercolor pencils.

Recipe for card:

Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams
Ink:  Watercolor Pencils, Tangerine Tango
Paper: Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango
Accessories:  5/8" Burlap Ribbon, Basic Black Bakers Twine 

Here's a video showing more ideas for using the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper, which is one of the free Sale-A-Bration selections with a $50 order.    

The next video shows a number of ways to use the new Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils.  This shows watercolor pencil techniques using: 

  • Dry water color pencils,  
  • Blending them with the  acqua painters or the blender pens, or 
  • How to do a water color wash with the Stampin' Up! water color pencils  

In an earlier post, I showed tips on modifying your colored pencils case to more easily see the colors.  If you missed it, take a look back at that post, now.
