Sneak Peek- Warm and Toasty

The Stampin’ Up! 2020 Holiday Mini Catalog will go live on Tuesday August 4, 2020! Yes, I know it seems early to start thinking about the holidays. But think of it this way-if you start making your holiday cards now, you will be able to send them out on time! And there is no rush or stress! You have plenty of time to choose the right stamp set and get started.

This jolly polar bear is part of an adorable Stampin’ Up! stamp set with bunnies, a reindeer and cute little mice. It’s called Warm & Toasty.

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch card base with a scoreline at 4 1/4 inches, 3 3/4 x 5 inches and 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches; Purple Posy CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 x 4 inches; Balmy Blue CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Pacific Point CS: 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 inches; and Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper: 1 3/4 x 3 3/4 inches.

Ink: Memento Black ink. Balmy Blue and Highland Heather Stampin’ Up! inks. Stampin’ Blends colors: Light and Dark Purple Posy, and Light and Dark Balmy Blue.

Using the Memento Black ink, stamp the polar bear onto the 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch Whisper White CS, leaving space to stamp the sentiment “here’s to a cool yule” in the lower left-hand corner.

Use the Memento black ink to stamp the baby polar bear onto the lower right-hand corner and the sentiment “warm & toasty” in the center of the 3 3/4 x 5 inch Whisper White CS. Add snowflakes using the Balmy Blue and Highland Heather inks.

Now use the Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers in Balmy Blue and Purple Posy to color the polar bears scarf and hat.

Adhere the colored polar bear to the 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 inch Pacific Point CS.

Adhere the baby polar bear piece to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Purple Posy CS.

Adhere the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper by using an adhesive around the edge only. The Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue worked well and did not show through.

Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Balmy Blue CS to the front of the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch Whisper White CS card base after using the Bone Folder to fold the card base at the 4 1/4 inch score line. Adhere the Plush Poinsettia/Purple Posy CS piece to the left side of the card front.

Adhere the baby polar bear to the inside of the Whisper White CS card base.

There is a new product in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog that I wanted to try called Foam Adhesive Sheets. These are like the Stampin’ Dimensionals but they are not cut into small hexagons. I cut them into 1/4 inch strips and applied them to the back of the skating polar bear card piece. This is much easier for me (and my arthritis) than trying to peel off a bunch of the Dimensionals.

Adhere the skating polar bear to the card front and then adhere a bow tied with the new Snowflake Splendor 1/4 inch Ribbon. Sparkly!

Of course, no card of mine is complete without some Bling! I added some more sparkle with the Artistry Blooms Self-Adhesive Sequins. I used the Take Your Pick tool to easily transfer the sequins from the sheet to the card.

I also added some Bling! to the inside of the card!

Viola! You now have one holiday card already made! This one is really very simple to reproduce. I made several to send to my customers with their catalogs.
