Ready for Christmas Staircase Bundle #1

Published by under cards | Jul 28 2017

 

One of the perks of going on the Thailand Incentive Trip with Stampin’ Up! is that we have permission to share some sneak peeks of new catalogue products with you.

We were so spoilt with many, many products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue.

 

Do you remember that gorgeous bag I showed you on the trip highlights post? The one we got as a pillow gift?

Stampin' Up! Thailand Incentive Trip - pillow gift Travel Bag

Well, look what I’ve been storing inside it….

Squeeal!!!! Stampin’ Up! are sooooo generous.

These are just some of the gifts we received in Thailand, and I can’t wait to create with this lot at workshops and classes from September.

Now, there’s still ONE whole month until the Holiday (Christmas) catalogue goes live, on September 1st 2017, so I’m not going to show it all just yet… 

However, I do have a fun project to share with you today.

In fact it’s one from the presentation I did at the Share Fair in Thailand.

This was a card I had on display, and it’s a mix of old and new products.

The window frame may look familiar – it’s from the Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies. And trust me, if you don’t already have those dies, you’ll definitely want to order them now!

And you may recognise the Brick Wall embossing folder.

 

Can you notice any new products in there?

This card is a modified version of the ‘double front card’ layout, with a couple of flip-up layers.

Here’s the first layer we could see behind the ‘window’…

And this layer lifts up too, to reveal another layer….

Oh my! That staircase!

I’m loving those pine boughs too. Do you want to know something really cool?

Six of those pine boughs fit perfectly over the stamped image of the Christmas tree. As in, they are an EXACT match!

Three on the bottom, two in the middle row, and one pointing straight up for the point of the tree.

No need to fuss around trying to get the branches into a lovely tree shape. Just stamp the tree image, then stick the boughs over the top.

Coordination at its finest, and oh so clever.

This is the fabulous 20 piece Ready For Christmas stamp set and 20 piece Christmas Staircase thinlits, and it was my absolute joy to create with it in the weeks leading up to the Thailand Incentive Trip.

Christmas Staircase framelit dies. Includes 3 leaf dies and 2 branch dies, to reduce your operating time on the Big Shot.

Why join the EurekaStampers?
I’ve been a demonstrator for nearly 10 years, have recently earned my 9th Incentive Trip, and helped others in my team earn many trips too. But more importantly, as a full-time demonstrator and team leader of the EurekaStampers, I love what I do and am here to help you do the same – whenever and however you need it. I look forward to welcoming you to our caring, thoughtful team, with members right across Australia who simply love to make cards and other paper crafting projects. We aren’t necessarily out to change the world, although in our own way we have certainly done that. I see it everyday. We make a difference when we send a card to someone whose day needs brightening; we make a difference when we show someone how to stamp for their first time; we make a difference when we start a business from nothing and make it something. You don’t have to be wildly outgoing; you simply need to love what you do. As for the rest? I can help you with that. And if you just want to make the most of the awesome discount, well you can do that too.

    Beautiful stunning card. Do you have a tutorial for this modified double-front card? I would love to CASE the basics of this card. I spent over two hours on-line trying to find a similar card with a tutorial. However the only results that I achieved were double-vision and frustration, Many thanks for share with everyone.

  11. Simoneon 09 Aug 2017 at 9:21 am

    Hi Peggy, sure thing… give this a try: http://bit.ly/RFChristmas. Let me know how you go with it. Simone
