Holiday Mini Sneak Peek Scandinavian

Stampin up scandinavian

NEW!  I'm so excited about Stampin' Up!'s new Holiday Mini stamp set:  Scandinavian Season (available Oct. 1).  It's a delicious twist on traditional holiday stamps–wonderful details and fresh design.  Marry them up with the Mini's Frosty Day Designer Paper (Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Close to Cocoa), and you get a classy, unique look with minimal work (the details and color do it for you).

Stampin up scandinavian tree
The line images in this set ink up and leave a crisp impression.  I stamped the tree in Tangerine Tango and stamped it again in Chocolate Chip.  I snipped out the Chocolate Chip flower, elevated it with Stampin' Dimensionals and set it in place with a lovely green Rhinestone Circle Brad.  The image is matted on Kiwi Kiss and Close to Cocoa card stock. 

I used Chocolate Chip for both the tree's "flower" and the sentiment rather than matching the Close to Cocoa in the Designer Paper.  This gives extra oomph.

The background panel is Frosty Day Designer Series Paper layered on Tangerine Tango.  Can you say "must-have?"  The Cute & Curly sentiment was stamped in Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip.  The Curly Label Punch pops out a perfectly coordinated label.  TIP:  The border of the oval (snipped out quite easily) does not line up with Stampin' Up!'s oval punches.  TIP:  You can do a "work around" for this by inking up only the text with a marker and popping it out with the Small Oval Punch.  It fits perfectly inside the punch.  Neat.

The Whisper White card base front measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and 3 copper brads (Stampin' Up! retired) dot the top right corner.  TIP:  I use a Paper Piercer and Template for to align brads.

  3. FABULOUS!! Great layout and you did a fantastic job with this stamp set and paper. Just when I thought I didn’t need any of the DP. Elizabeth Bead Diva

  4. Very pretty card. You know, I just can’t seem to get into the In Colors this time around, but you make them look very appealing in this card, especially that tangerine tango.

  5. This Scandinavian set and wheel was at the top of my must have list! Your card is gorgeous and I loved the tip on using the paper piercer to line up brads. Now…why didn’t I think of that? Glad to have you, Mary, as my ‘thinking outside the box’ mentor!!

  6. Phresh! {I’m hoping that’s the cool spelling,too!} Very different SU set, and very cool color combo!

  7. Love it!!! love the DSP you used also. I never would have thought of that combo. How many more days until October 1? *sigh* I want to play with that set now. 🙂

    P.S. I was so thrilled to see “Scandinavian” as the title of your newest post in my Reader. I immediately hotfooted it over here to check out the card – it’s fantastic, Mary. Thanks for the sneak peek!

  8. Can I say “MUST HAVE”? You bet and I do every time I see what you do. Who knows this better than you. I love the punch, can’t wait until I get mine. Yeah, it’s on it’s way here. Good job!
