This card is full of sneak peeks from the holiday catalog, which goes live August 1st.
Santa is from the new stamp set, Santa’s List. Isn’t he cute? I wasn’t sure whether I really wanted him or not, but I don’t have any Santas in my stamp room, so I figured I’d give him a shot. And then I stamped him in Crumb Cake ink, and I love him. Look at how he’s adjusting his glasses like, “Hey, who’s this hottie staring back at me?”. (It’s me, BTW. Me.)
I’m in love with the new chevron ribbon in the annual catalog and already have it in my two favorite colors, Cherry Cobbler and Island Indigo.
The Naughty/Nice stamp is also new, from the Very Merry Tags set in the holiday catalog. I haven’t checked either box yet, as Santa’s answer will depend on who receives the card.
Do you love those Cherry Cobbler Candy Dots on either side of the tag? I do, and I LOVE that they come in all of our main colors. You can also build them into brads, but I think they’re great by themselves.
Before I go, I want to share a great promotion with you. My Paper Pumpkin is Stampin’ Up!’s surprise-kit-of-the-month subscription — usually, you subscribe for $19.95/month (US), which includes shipping. The first month, you receive the Welcome kit, which has a clear block for mounting all of your future Paper Pumpkin stamps, plus the cardstock, ink, stamps, stickers, and buttons for creating 4 cards (this is the kit shown when you subscribe). Each month after that, you receive a surprise kit in the mail, and from what I’ve seen, the kits keep getting better every month! Now for the deal. If you sign up before August 31st, you get your first two months of Paper Pumpkin (the Welcome kit is your first month) for $10 each! And the best part about this subscription deal is that you can cancel at any time or even skip a month by updating your subscription. Pretty good, right? Here’s the link to sign up — make sure you enter promo code PUMPKINDEAL and that you also select me, Sarah Fleming (Idaho), as your demonstrator.
Now… prepare to dye!
