Holiday Sneak Peek 2

The Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is coming out in just 7 days!  7 DAYS!  And boy, has SU! outdone itself this time!  Here's the first sneak peek for you! 

I used the new Framelits Holiday Ornaments dies to cut some bulbs straight out of the base.  Then I added some cute gingham for a cute whimsy feel.  Simple but adorable!  I also embossed the sentiment with the new Sugar & Spice embossing powder!  It smells divine!!!

On the next I changed up to Wild Wasabi on the gingham, but cut out some ornaments instead.

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Stamps: Word Play
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Big Shot, Framelits - Holiday Ornaments, Stripes Embossing Folder, Baker's Twine in Espresso & Whisper White, Sugar & Spice Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Paper Piercer
