Hi Stamping Friends!
The Holiday Catalog officially kicks off on September 4, but I can't wait any longer! I have to start showing you some sneak peeks of this amazing seasonal collection! Are you ready?!
Today, I have two sweet cards using items from the Wrapped In Plaid suite of products! This collection features the Perfectly Plaid stamp set with a variety of pine tree images along with a coordinating Pine Tree Punch. My favorite thing from this suite is the AWESOME Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper! It's a stack of 48 sheets measuring 6×6" and the 12 patterns are lovely plaids with gold foil accents! The back sides of the plaids have stripes, dots and other patterns that complement the plaids.
Stampin' Up! has said it's the most popular product from the Holiday Catalog so far from the demonstrator pre-orders! You can check it out up-close if you participate in my Holiday Paper Share!

Perfectly Plaid Sneak Peek Cards
Let's start this holiday season with a traditional, simple & sweet holiday card! Perfectly Plaid is the perfect choice! The NEW Holiday Catalog items will be available beginning September 4, or you can pre-order them right now if you purchase a $99 Starter Kit! Learn More!
Background Basics—The first card begins by texture embossing a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Mint Macaron cardstock with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. It's adhered to a Shaded Spruce vertically-folded card base measuring 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2" using a combination of Tear & Tape and SNAIL adhesives.
Next, I added a pretty piece of 4" x 2" Wrapped In Plaid DSP across the bottom half. I tied some NEW Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8" Striped Ribbon from the suite around the card front into a double-knot.
Lovely Label—I die-cut a Whisper White Stitched Nested Label shape, then stamped a Perfectly Plaid sentiment across the bottom in Cherry Cobbler ink. It's popped up over the ribbon with Dimensionals.
Perfect Pine—I stamped one of the 4 pine tree images from Perfectly Plaid in Shaded Spruce ink onto scrap Whisper White cardstock. Then, I punched the shape out with the Pine Tree Punch and popped it up with Dimensionals onto the label. I finished by punching a small Gold Glimmer Paper star with the Twinkle Builder Punch and attaching it with a Glue Dot.
Bundle It & SAVE—Purchase the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree Punch together in a bundle to save 10%!
Two Cool—The second card features a Balmy Blue Pinewood Pines background on a Night of Navy card base. I selected another Wrapped In Plaid pattern and used the same ribbon as the first card.
Sweet Sentiment—This time, instead of stamping the sentiment onto the label, I stamped the Perfectly Plaid phrase in Night of Navy ink onto a 2-3/4" x 5/8" strip of Whisper White cardstock. I fishtail cut the ends and popped it up on the bottom of the label. The pine tree is stamped just like the first card. Simple & sweet!
