What do these 3 cards all have in common?  Hint: New Christmas Designer Series Papers. Well…Two things actually!

  • 1–They are all Quick & Easy and use Designer Series Paper (DSP), and
  • 2–They all use the Christmas greeting stamp set called Timeless Tidings

Sometimes when you look through the Stampin’ Up! catalogs we get so stuck on stamp sets that go with particular products, and totally overlook that they are perfect for other projects.  That is the case with the Timeless Tidings stamp set on page 33 of the Holiday Catalog that is meant to go with the Timeless Tidings card kit.  Check out these new Christmas Designer Series Papers that I combined with this stamp set to make quick & easy cards!!!

Quick Tip Video

I also have a Quick Tip video for you today about using the Embossing Buddy when you emboss.  Especially when using colored embossing powder so that you avoid all the little “specks” that get left behind.

If you are reading this in your email, the video might now show up, so just click below to go to YouTube and watch it.  While there, make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any of my videos!

Now let’s take a closer look at the 3 cards that I have for you today featuring the Timeless Tidings stamp set and a couple different packs of Designer Series Paper.

Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper (DSP)

The first card features the Joyous Noel DSP on page 29 of the Holiday Catalog, as well as the glimmer paper and velvet ribbon page 37.  I am loving how so many of these new products coordinate with each other, throughout the entire catalog!  This card has a much more elegant flare to it.

Timeless Tiding Christmas Cards

Here are the main products I used on this card.  As you can see from these 3 cards, you really have to look closely at all the products in the Holiday Catalog.  They divide the products up into “suites,” but that does not mean they coordinate with other stamps, papers and embellishments throughout the entire catalog!
