Stampin’ Up! Autumn/Winter 2016 Catalogue retires soon

Stampin’ Up! Autumn/Winter 2016 Catalogue retires soon

Time is flying really quickly! The Stampin’ Up! Autumn/Winter 2016 Catalogue will retire in a few days time! I’ve barely used those lovely stamp sets and dies that I was so eager to get my hands on when I first saw the catalogue back in August. Unfortunately my crafting has had to take a back seat over the last few months due to other commitments. But, I managed to spend some time in my craft room in between cooking and spending time with the boys over the course of the Christmas break.

I wanted to use my Halloween Scenes Edgelits again before they retire and also I have been dying to play along with the Global Design Project challenge again. As luck would have it their theme is Trees! Yay! Perfect for the card I have created.  Waving hello to all the design team. I still visit the blog for inspiration even though I haven’t had the chance to play along lately!

I die cut the tree and the picket fence from watercolour paper using the retiring Halloween Scenes Edgelits.  Then I created a little water colour scene using the fabulous new watercolour pencils, that will be available from January 4th in the new Spring/Summer 2017 catalogue.

My card was inspired by this card on Pinterest that I saw ages ago and have been wanting to CASE ever since.

The sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts – I didn’t realise I had some air bubbles on the letters f and h which is what caused the splodging! I don’t think it looks too bad though does it? Not enough to waste the card over anyway! Handmade imperfections etc etc!

Well that’s it from me. I have another card I will post on the GDP challenge before the deadline on 2nd January! Don’t forget if you want the Halloween Scenes Edgelits or any of the other retiring products from the Stampin’ Up! Autumn/Winter 2016 catalogue you have until January 3rd!

Thanks for stopping by!

Spoiler Alert – Gorgeous New Products Coming Soon!

Halloween Scenes Edgelits by Stampin’ Up!

Well I finally managed to get some crafting done today! I had my Stampin’ Up! Autumn/Winter Catalogue pre-order arrive yesterday. But I didn’t get the chance to have a play until this morning. I know how terrible lol! I decided to buy some Halloween sets this year and I’m showing you a sneak peek of one of them, Halloween Scenes Edgelits by Stampin’ Up! This set was perfect for Sarah Berry’s Strawberry Sketches #SS004.


The Halloween Scenes Edgelits by Stampin’ Up! can be used for more than just Halloween Cards as you will see over the next few weeks. I have a few ideas in my head and none of them are particularly Halloween related!

I’ve made a (kind of) Thanksgiving card using the picket fence and the tree edgelits dies. They are are my absolute favourite and are the main reason I bought this set. I could see the potential for more than Halloween (and indeed Thank You) cards.

What do you think? I love the Pumpkin Pie and Soft Sky colour combination.

I used Thoughtful Banners and the Banner Duet punch for the sentiment, which I stamped in Early Espresso onto Pumpkin Pie card stock.

Well thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow!
