ILWS new catalogue blog hop …

Hello and welcome to the In Love With Stamping (ILWS) blog hop.

Today sees the launch of the brand new Stampin’ Up!® annual catalogue and, together with the recently launched autumn/winter catalogue, we now have more choice than ever before of the beautiful Stampin’ Up!® products.

To celebrate, a group of us on In Love With Stamping got together for a blog hop to showcase lots of fabulous items from both catalogues, which are now available to order.  You should have arrived here from Beckie’s page – if not, do make sure you take a look at her beautiful projects.

For today’s hop, I chose to make Christmas projects using something old and something new …

I used one of the gorgeous stamps from the ornament keepsakes set with the matching die,

these are available to purchase separately from the autumn/winter catalogue,

or you can purchase them together as a bundle and make a great saving …

I added a strip of the gorgeous festival of prints dsp in a matching colour,

a tiny bow of cherry cobbler scalloped tulle ribbon and some adhesive pearls.


For my second card, I used the delightful decorations set with the matching ornament punch,

this time stamping a strip of very vanilla with one of the smaller stamps from the set …

more tiny tulle bows and adhesive pearls completed the look.


 And finally, for my last project, I used a different stamp from the same set,

stamped 5 images in cherry cobbler and punched them out with the ornament punch,

scored and folded them to make this cute decoration for my Christmas tree…

And here are all three projects together …

The sentiment is from another one of my favourite sets – beautiful season,

and was stamped in early espresso ink.


Here’s what you need to make today’s projects – all supplies from Stampin’ Up! –

cardstock: naturals ivory, very vanilla; stamp sets:  ornament keepsakes, delightful decorations, beautiful season; ink: cherry cobbler, early espresso; accessories:  festival of prints dsp, corner rounder and ornament punches, holiday ornaments framelits dies, big shot machine, cherry cobbler scalloped tulle ribbon, linen thread, tombow multi glue, mini glue dots, stampin’ dimensionals, adhesive pearls.

A Beautiful Season from Stampin’ Up!

My friend, Clare, asked me to make a Christmas card with a robin on.  So  I inked up the Beautiful Season stamp set from Stampin’ Up, and then used my stampin’ write marker pens to colour the image, in 3 different shades of green for the holly leaves – certainly celery, old olive and garden green – and 2 shades of brown for the robin – chocolate chip and crumb cake, with a splash of real red for that Christmassy look! 

Once I was happy with the coloured image, I cut out it out in an oval shape, and sponged with crumb cake ink for added interest.  I mounted it onto a piece of A4 confetti white cardstock from Stampin Up, folded in half to make an A5 card, and added a strip of real red cardstock and a length of ribbon (sadly retired) tied in a knot.  The sentiment is from the Contempo Christmas stamp set. 

I love the way the confetti white cardstock has different coloured flecks of colour randomly through the cardstock – even flecks of red – and it was just perfect for this card.
