One of the great things about being a demonstrator are the training days we have where we learn new techniques and get to see new products. A couple of months ago we had a wider team training day that was focused around products from the Holiday Catalogue. I was able to make some samples using products that I hadn’t purchased – one of which was the Quilted Christmas Suite. Here are two cards I made using the Christmas Quilt bundle and the Quilted Christmas DSP stack.
My image is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party and the sentiment is stamped in Garden Green. The card base is Real Red. The image was stamped on Whisper White then die cut. The layers on top are also from the Quilt Builder Framelits Die.
For this card I started with a strip of DSP that was matted in Real Red then added the quilted ‘snowflake’. I’ve kept the colours to match the DSP of Real Red and Garden Green. The sentiment is also part of the Christmas Quilt stamp set that is part of the bundle.
You may have noticed the red ‘bling’ in the centre of my snowflake. There are two ways to turn your Rhinestones into whatever colour you wish. For this card I just coloured the rhinestone with a red Sharpie marker but now you can also do this using our new Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers. With this option you can create at least 24 different colours as each marker comes in a light and dark shade plus we have the Ivory and Bronze markers.
Don’t forget we have our upcoming Christmas Extravaganza on Saturday 18 November. If you would like to come please contact me before Friday 10th November as we only have a few spaces left.
I will be placing another order tomorrow night (Tuesday 7th) so if you are wanting to place an order for any supplies please let me know before 8:00pm.
