In the same theme as yesterday’s post, I want to share another stamp set from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue that lends itself to a number of different occasions.
Today it’s all about Beachy Little Christmas…
This set was modelled on some of our iconic beachy images here in Australia.
In a catalogue full of snowflakes, it’s a great alternative option – perfect for our summery climate at this time of the year.
The stamp set comes with Christmas-like sentiments, so the first card I’m sharing is for Christmas.
I’ve used a colour theme that screams ‘beach’ to me – Sahara Sand, Pool Party & Whisper White.
The background is made using the faux woodgrain technique on glossy white cardstock, but in beachy colours – Soft Sky base and Pool Party & Bermuda Bay streaks – to emulate a water scene.
All those gorgeous pastels!!! I love non-traditional Christmas card colours!
The second card uses the same colours, but this time I’ve left off the sentiment and used it as a birthday card.
The Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder is a great coordinating products for the beach shack stamp.
I’m always on the lookout for multiple options for the stamp sets I buy. I want to know that I’m adding value and creativity to my stash.
I’m hopeful that many Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and customers will purchase the Beachy Little Christmas stamp set and support the efforts from the corporate design team for the Christmas range to be inclusive of all geographical areas. Fingers crossed for a surfing Santa or 6 White Boomers stamp in a future design!!!
