Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop: Sneak Peek Time!

Hi! Welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop! This is a monthly hop with Stampin’ Up! friends around the world; you’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month we are showing sneak peeks of products from the amazing new Holiday Catalog. I’m sure you’ll find tons of projects to inspire you in your crafting and help you start your shopping list!

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Blizzard bundle with Blizzard Thinlits die, Timeless Tidings stamp set - handmade whimsical Christmas holiday card - Holiday Catalog sneak peek - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts - #sdbh

For my card, I’m using one of my very favorite bundles from the Holiday Catalog, Beautiful Blizzard. It’s fanTASTIC. The textures and snowflakes stamped in the background are all from the stamp set, and the snowflakes are cut using the thinlit die. The die cuts all of the snowflakes (and more) at once!

The card base is Flirty Flamingo. I stamped the background on Shimmery White cardstock in Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue, Melon Mambo, and Flirty Flamingo. I really love this color combo! The snowflakes are Whisper White.

Before I glued down the snowflakes, I spritzed on some Frost White Shimmer Paint (coming in the Holiday Catalog, too). My spritzing needs a little work. I filled a Stampin’ Spritzer with 91% alcohol, almost to the top, added several drops of Shimmer Paint, shook it all up, and spritzed. For some reason, my spritzer turned from spray into a hard stream. I got a lot of paint on the card, though! I stamped the sentiment, from Timeless Tidings, in Balmy Blue and flagged the ends of the strip with the Banner Triple Punch. I popped that up on Dimensionals and finished the card with some Clear Epoxy Droplets from the Holiday Catalog.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you like my card and that you’ve been inspired to go make something today. You are currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. Please see the list below & hop through all of the people on the list to see all of our projects. You don’t want to miss any!

Beauty of the Season

Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas to All stamps - holiday catalog sneak peek - Stitched Seasons framelits, Joyous Noel paper, Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hello! I hope you are doing well. I’m actually sitting at my doctor’s office right now waiting for a baby check, so I thought I’d pop in and post a card.

Some kind of crafty weirdness has been going on in my craft room the last couple of days, because I’ve gone in to make some bright Christmas cards and come out with three muted cards with tons of neutral colors. Who knows what that is about? But I think this is a pretty card anyway, even if it isn’t covered in red.

My card base is Crumb Cake (!*rare*), and the designer paper is a gorgeous piece from Joyous Noel. In case you can’t tell, there are copper foil accents in the paper.

I stamped the sentiment, one of the GORJ sentiments from one of my top Holiday Catalog sets, Merry Christmas to All, on Whisper White in Shaded Spruce. I cut it out with a stitched label die from the Stitched Seasons framelits. Remember, these dies (and the coordinating stamps) are only available until August 31, while supplies last. I also cut some branches using the same set of dies in Merry Merlot, Whisper White, and Copper Glimmer Paper (from the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper in the Holiday Catalog). I finished the card off with Shaded Spruce ribbon from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you, Heather

Stampin' Up! handmade thank you card using Blended Seasons stamp set with Petal Pair embossing folders, Faceted Dots, and Stampin' Blends alcohol markers - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

In case you’re wondering about my blog post title, no, this isn’t a thank you card for someone named Heather. It’s a thank you card where I used the new Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends. My post titles are always cheesy and weird, in case you missed that.

I colored these flowers a couple of weeks ago, but they got buried on my desk. I unearthed them yesterday and finally fussy-cut them with my Paper Snips and put them on a card. I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored the flowers themselves with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends (both Light and Dark). I colored the flower centers with the Dark Daffodil Delight marker. For the leaves, I first started with Dark Daffodil Delight and colored around the centers and some edges of the leaves. Then I went over certain spots, namely the center lines and the edges, with Dark Call Me Clover. Then I blended everything with Light Call Me Clover, being careful not to completely color over all of the Daffodil Delight, to make sure the leaves still had some yellow.

Stampin' Up! handmade thank you card using Blended Seasons stamp set with Petal Pair embossing folders, Faceted Dots, and Stampin' Blends alcohol markers - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I started with a Gorgeous Grape card base and laid out my whole card before stamping the sentiment. I embossed the strip of Mint Macaron with one of the embossing folders from the Petal Pair set of folders. Then I put the flowers on Dimensionals and set them down. I didn’t glue anything down yet. I put the whole card in the Stamparatus and lined up where I wanted the sentiment to go, then removed everything but the card base, clamped the card base down with a Stamparatus magnet, then stamped the sentiment in Versamark. I embossed it with White embossing powder and the Heat Tool. Then I glued everything down and added some Faceted Dots.

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you go through the entire blog hop. There are so many fabulous designers in this hop, and you’ll get a ton of inspiration!

Check out the video below to see my new stuff and to see how I made this spooky fun card!
