Non-Traditional Color Challenge, and Don’t Forget Our Ongoing Sales!

I’ve had so much fun playing with a new set of dies, found in our July-December Holiday Catalog — the Snowman Dies. I’ll be featuring them this week on my blog. Their versatility will become more apparent as you see more of these fun projects!

We recently had a challenge on the Up North Stampin’ Gang Facebook page (have you joined yet?) to create a project using non-traditional colors for the holidays. So I’m throwing a couple out there today. Non-traditional colors are so fun, because they bring a fresh prospective to holiday cards! Here are mine:

The card above is a simple one. I adhered a panel of Celebrate Everything DSP (a host set of DSP!) over a Basic White card base. I cut out a framed piece from the Snowman Dies, and also used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut a panel of Polished Pink to fit underneath it. I adhered the snowflake frame onto the polished pink, but before attaching to the card base, I heat embossed a sentiment from the Framed and Festive stamp set in white embossing powder. I attached the pink panel to the card base, and then just finished it with some Festive Pearls in the silver tones. So easy and bright!

The second card also uses a Basic White Card base. The snowflake frame is cut in Bermuda Bay, and the two fun trees are diecut using Pear Pizzazz. I again used white embossing powder to heat emboss another sentiment from the Framed and Festive stamp set. I placed a couple of sparkly embellishments atop the tree, and my card was done. I like how simple and modern it looks — do you?


We have a great DOUBLE promotion going on right now, starting December 1. We have added new items to our clearance rack, including dies offered during the Perfect Partners Promotion! With discounts up to 60% off, you can get the die sets that coordinate with the still-available stamp sets at a great price!

In addition, the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog will be retiring soon! It’s always bittersweet to see a classic Stampin’ Up! catalog take a trip to retirement. But, we’re looking forward to all the new products on their way—and we hope you are, too!
