2015 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek: Your Presents (not just for Christmas)

At the Stampin' Up! convention in July, we got a chance to play with one of the new stamp sets from the upcoming 2015 Holiday Catalog, called Your Presents.  I might have overlooked this stamp set, so it was good to be able to give it a test drive.

Your Presents stamp set from 2015 Holiday Catalog shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

The images in this set were designed to be used individually or together using the "kissing technique".

Kissing Technique (for present image above)

  • Use two stamps. Typically a solid stamp and a pattern stamp (diagonal stamp used above)
  • Ink one or both of them (solid stamp inked in Mint Macaron, diagonal stamp inked in Garden Green)
  • Touch them together (be careful not to let the stamps slide) - transferring pattern stamp image to the solid stamp.
  • Stamp the solid image onto cardstock. 
  • Stand back and ooh & aah!

Your Presents stamp set from 2015 Holiday Catalog shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

Both of the presents on the right feature the kissing technique with a twist...

2 More Ways of Kissing Technique

  • For the bottom present, the solid image was inked in Mint Macaron and the pattern image wasn't inked at all.  When it "kisses" the solid image - it removes the ink, leaving white space.  Then stamp solid image on paper.
  • For the top present, the solid image is left uninked.  Stamp the diagonal image with Watermelon Wonder on to solid image stamp, then turn 90 degrees, ink and stamp again onto the solid image stamp to create the "plaid" design.  Then stamp solid image on paper

The greeting is from the Tin Of Cards Photopolymer Stamp Set [138946].

Your Presents stamp set from 2015 Holiday Catalog shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup (Linda Persoon)

I received this card from fellow demonstrator, Linda Persoon for my birthday this month.  The star images are from Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set (137167) and the greeting is from B.Y.O.P. Stamp Set (137159)

As you can see from these last two cards, the Your Presents stamp set is not just for Christmas, making this a set you can use all year-long.  

If you like stamping techniques then this stamp set will be a perfect addition to your collection.  Don't forget to add it to your wish list for September 1st.

Enjoy~Dawn O

HSDT Video: Summer Silhouettes Just Cards Buffet Card

On last week's Control Freak Blog Tour, I shared my Summer Silhouettes Convention Swap Card. I received several comments and lots of requests for a video.  Also...as I mentioned, this was also a card I offered at my local Just Cards Buffet Class.  

Control Freaks Blog Tour July 2015 projects by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

What really gives this card it's dramatic results is the sponging - filling in the "white space".  Sponging is easy to do, you just need a little practice.

The touch of glitter adds a nice pop of sparkle too!  Above is a closer look at the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, that was adhered with a 2-Way Glue Pen.
