Update Tuesday October 29, 2019 - Christmas Time is Here Suite

Hello!

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about today's Update Tuesday!  Stampin' UP!® shared some beautiful cards from the upcoming Christmastime is Here Suite and let me just say, ahhhmazing!  I had a hard time choosing which project to make.  Ultimately I settled on the one that made me the happiest.  It depicts Christmas to me in an elegant way, and I couldn't resist.

Here is the photo that Stampin" UP!® shared in their Succeed Weekly email for demonstrators this morning.  And as you can see from the photo, this suite can be used for more than just Christmas.  Stamp that large rose image and turn these cards into celebration, sympathy, get well,
birthday....any thing you want!
Look at the decorated mini Pizza box!  How cute is that with the
Gold Shimmer Ribbon on the top edge?!
Did you see the bracelet?  Yes this suite includes a beautiful bracelet, the Charming Rose Bracelet!

One more good look at this beauty before you get started making some for yourself!



Measurements & Instructions
  1. Cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock 5 1/2in. x 8 1/2in., score at 4 1/4in. and fold on score line.
  2. Place all of the dotted stamps from the Christmas Rose Stamp Set onto one clear block then stamp the entire Cherry Cobbler card front and back using Cherry Cobbler Ink.
  3. Using the Roses Dies, die cut a rose image form the Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.
  4. Using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies, die cut a large label from the Mossy Meadow medallion sheet.
  5. Adhere the Stitched Nested Label to the front of card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. Cut two pieces of Gold Shimmer Ribbon, one 2 1/2in. and one 3in. long.  Trim the ends on a diagonal.  Adhere to the Stitched Nested Label using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  
  7. On a 1/2in. x 1 1/2in. strip of Whisper White Card Stock stamp the sentiment "Peace & Joy" in either Cherry Cobbler Ink or Mossy Meadow Ink.  You will have to mask off the "WISHING YOU THE GIFTS OF THE SEASON" portion of the stamp with a post-it note or tape.  I show this process in the video.  
  8. Cut the end of the Whisper White sentiment piece to make a banner tail.  Then trim down the white card stock so it is even closer to the sentiment, making the banner skinnier.  
  9. Adhere the sentiment banner to card front, on top of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon using Tear & Tape Adhesive. 
  10. Adhere the Rose die cut piece to the front of card using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  
  11. For my variation on the card, leave the top right edge not adhered. 
  12. Using the Roses Dies, die cut a Gold Foil lattice piece.  Cut that piece in half and save half for another card.
  13. Life the top right edge of the Rose die cut piece and squirt a little bit of Tombow Multipurpose Glue under the edge and then slide the cut edge of the Gold Foil lattice piece under the edge.  Set a clear block on top of the Rose die cut piece to hold it until the glue dries.
  14. Embellish the front of the card with Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.  
  15. Cut a piece of Whisper White Card Stock 4in. x 5 1/4in. and stamp the sentiment "MAY THIS Christmas FILL YOUR HEART WITH warmth & love" in either Cherry Cobbler or Mossy Meadow ink.
  16. Adhere this piece to the inside of card using Snail Adhesive.  Voila!
