Christmastime Is Here Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!

Well do I have a fun surprise for you!!!

CHRISTMAS IS COMING EARLY THIS YEAR!!!  We hope you’re ready to make this holiday season magical, because the Christmastime Is Here Suite is, well . . . here! This exclusive, limited-time collection of festive, floral coordinating products has everything you and your customers need to share love, joy, and creativity this holiday season.

There is SO MUCH FUN included in this suite!!!  And the Artisan Design Team is SOOOOO excited to start showing you how much fun it is!  With a blog hop!  Ready to hop along with us today?!  If you just came from Angela's blog...then you already saw her beautiful projects! Aren't you in love?! 

Now I get to share mine!

As you can see...this exclusive, limited-time collection is FULL of festive, floral coordinating products!  It has everything you need to share LOVE, JOY, & CREATIVITY this holiday season!  

This is currently available to Stampin' Up! demonstrators as a pre-order (until October 31t)  Then it will be available to customers starting November 1st!  If you want it NOW and you are not a demonstrator...talk to me about becoming one so you can get your hands on it now!  ๐Ÿ˜ 

I am going to show you a few fun different things you can do with them.  First up is the standard sized card.  

I used one of the die-cuts as a template for some stenciling.  ๐Ÿ˜  Just check out that gold background...

And it's so easy!  I first just cut out a template from some scrap cardstock.  Then I laid the die (with the rest of the cardstock to protect my project from getting ink where I didn't want it) onto the cardstock and sponged some of the Golden Glitz ink onto it.

Then just keep moving your stencil" down your project until you are done!  

I kinda love that subtle/shimmery texture it adds to the whole card.  

(Love those Gold Glitter Enamel Dots that are available in this suite also.  ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ )  

This card opens kinda fun, also.  I cut off a little bit on the side, so you get a peek of the designer paper from the suite on the side...

I added that scallop edge for a little pop of color, adhered it to the inside, then just added another panel of cardstock to cover up where it is adhered.  

And FUN TIP!!!  This HUGE floral image is CUT OUT FROM THE DESIGNER PAPER!  Using a coordinating DIE!!!!!  

Ummmmm....YES!  PLEASE!!!!  Swoon!  Look at those gold foil touches!  

Now do you want to see the fun gift box?!  Here is a reminder of what it looks like...

This time, I did a little something different.  I actually stamped the big floral image and embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder.  And then I just colored the whole thing in.  It was SOOOOO much fun to color.  I watercolored most of it, and then used my Real Red Blends Marker to color in the berries. 

Add a few other elements and I think you have a pretty fabulous gift box for Christmas! Or even use other colors, change the greeting, and it would be a fabulous box for any other time of year!  Love all the little fun elements...

Finally...I made a fun little 4" x 4" card that I am going to use as a tag on a present this year.  

That lattice die-cut is probably my favorite.  As you can see, lots you can do with it.  This time I just used it as a background, added a few other fun elements, and VOILA!  An easy card to make! 

I love how a white greeting pops on that black background.  And that fun little rose (cut out from Designer Series Paper) adds such a fun touch.  And I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Gold Shimmer Ribbon! 

I hope you enjoy these projects!  Are you as in love with the Christmastime Is Here Suite as I am?!  Make sure you keep hopping with us today to keep falling in love!  There are still lots of STUNNING projects to see!  Just check out what Aurรฉlie has in store for you on her blog next!!!
