pootler's blog hop

Thank you for joining us again on Pootler’s Blog Hop! This is our team Blog Hop to showcase products from new Stampin’ Up!® Autumn-Winter Catalogue. So prepare yourself for lot’s of beautiful projects and tones of inspiration. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

If you have arrived here from Lea’s blog thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy seeing the inspiration from our team and continue to hop through to see what everyone has made.

My little project features pretty few of new products from our seasonal catalogue, but I just simply couldn’t decide which one to choose 🙂

Does it happen to you that when you see new product, it “talk to you”? hahaha 😜 no I’m not crazy! Just the moment I saw Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies it screamed to me : shaker card!

Christmas Bauble Shaker Card 2.1

I wanted to keep my card in soft, washed colours. The base of the card as well as the layer is Whisper White. To break a little bit all the whiteness I added pattern to my base. I took one of the stencils (fancy dots) from Happy Patterns set and sponged over the stencil with Soft Sky. But I only sponged on the edges, leaving the centre white for stamping.

For the layer I took a piece that measure 5-3/8 x 3-6/8″ so my sponged base could slightly peek around the edges. I run it through Big Shot with new Softly Falling 6×6″ Embossing Folder. I love how it add gentle texture to the card. Next I run it through the Big Shot with a bauble die from Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies, to create a “window” for my shaker.

Christmas Bauble Shaker Card 4

Winter scene comes from Happy Scenes stamp set. Snow on the ground is “swoosh” stamp from Work Of Art. For my shakers I used Metallics Sequin Assortment, Lost Lagoon stars punched with Confetti Stars Border punch and seed beads from my stash. To create shaker I used edges from dimensionals and a piece of acetate. If you don’t have dimensionals you could use foam tape.

Christmas Bauble Shaker Card 3

To keep  rest of the card simple the only “embellishment” on my card is Poinsettia flower. I was so excited to use Festive Flower Builder Punch together with Reason for the Season stamp set. I punched poinsettia leaves from Whisper White cardstock. I used five large leaves, five medium, five small ones (I cut them in half) and three centres to build my poinsettia. Each leaf was stamped in Sky Blue but I stamp it off first so the colour was even softer. I curl each leaf with bone folder and assebled it using tombow glue.

Christmas Bauble Shaker Card 2.2

This gorgeous sentiment comes from Embellished Ornaments stamp set. I cut it into a banner and backed it with a piece of silver glimmer paper. As I had it out I also die-cut a little fixing for my bauble from glimmer paper too.

I hope I inspired you a little bit with my card today, showcasing products from new Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue. Don’t forget that when you buy a bundle you save 15% instantly! Awesome!! Don’t have a catalogue yet?! Contact me and I will be more than happy to send you one.
