Hello! Welcome to a hop with my ESAD friends. ESAD is an online community of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who live in Australia & New Zealand. It’s a pleasure to hang out with them online today!
The theme for today’s hop is “Goodbye Mini Catalogue”. The holiday catalogue started in August will run through until 4th January (or until stocks last). If there’s anything on your list that you haven’t yet ordered, you’ll want to contact your demonstrator ASAP to get it done, or you may not get the chance!
Now, let us add a few more things to your list that you didn’t know you needed!
I’m sharing a couple of projects I’ve made using Festive Felt. You might have overlooked this on page 29 of the catalogue, hiding in the top corner but let me show you how awesome it is! Thin enough to cut with dies but durable enough to create a cute embellishment for your projects, this is a great way to add texture.
The felt comes in 4 colours – Early Espresso, Just Jade, Real Red & Whisper White.
For the first card, I used the felt to make circles that are slightly larger than 1″ using a die from the Layering Circles Dies set. I arranged these on a Crumb Cake mat, layered with Whisper White cardstock and then on a Crumb Cake base.
The felt is so amazing to use. It cuts through dies beautifully – including the intricate reindeer die from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies set. I’ve left this card sentiment free to let the felt be the focus!
The second card uses the felt and the Stitched Stars Dies.
The styling of this card is very similar to the first one but has a sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set – another gorgeous find in the mini catalogue. I stamped and then embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.
The felt retained the pieces from the detailed die which made for a pretty effect! You can also see the stitching on the red & white dies. The final touch is some Basic Pearl Jewels.
If you can cut it with a die, then you can make your own felt embellishments! The felt doesn’t work with punches, but you can cut with scissors or a guillotine style trimmer.
