Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek at Truly Grateful

I’m sharing a little sneak peek at some of the new items in the Stampin’ Up! 2013 Holiday Catalog with you today.  You can start ordering from the new catalog on August 1.  This stamp set is called Truly Grateful and I used several pieces of the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit for my card.  And don’t forget about the Stampin’ Up! new recruit promotion, if you sign up to be a Demonstrator between July 15 and August 31 you can choose one of four project kits (this kit is one of the choices!) for free.   Plus Demonstrators can order from the new Holiday Catalog now!  Click here to read more about it.

My design was inspired by Mojo Monday 301.

Truly Grateful

I started by adhering a panel of the Birch Paper Ribbon from the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit to a panel of Crushed Curry card stock, then to a Chocolate Chip card base with SNAIL.  Then I cut down one of the Cardstock Holders from the Kit, punched the corners with the 3/16″ Corner Punch, adhered it to one of the Die Cut Chalkboard Labels from the Kit, then to the card front with SNAIL.  Next, I adhered a strip of the Chocolate Chip Ribbon Paper and a strip of one of the DSP belly Bands from the Thankful Tablescape Kit to the card front with SNAIL.

Truly Grateful 1

I stamped the image from the Truly Grateful stamp set in StazOn Jet Black ink on a Whisper White panel and colored it with my Stampin’ Write Markers, then stamped the wood background image in Sahara Sand ink over the colored image.  I cut the image out with the Ovals Collection Framelits die and adhered it with SNAIL to an Ovals Collection Framelits die cut from Sahara Sand card stock that I’d embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I adhered the layered ovals to the card front with SNAIL, then stamped the wood image in Sahara Sand ink on a Whisper White panel.  I punched the image out with my 1-3/8″ Circle Punch, sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink and adhered it with SNAIL to a circle that I’d cut from Chocolate Chip card stock with one of the Circles Collection Framelits dies.  I stamped the wood image again in Sahara Sand ink on a Whisper White panel, then stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink over the wood image.  I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock, then to the layered circle with SNAIL.  I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered a Naturals Designer Button with a Glue Dot that I’d tied a piece of Linen Thread (also from the Thankful Tablescape Kit) through.

Truly Grateful 2

I finished the inside of the card by adhering another piece of the Birch Paper Ribbon inside the card with SNAIL.
