About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

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.

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

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.
