Freshly Brewed – Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek


Today the Latte Girls have a Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek and I decided on Christmas. (it’s only just over 16 weeks until Christmas, so time to get making those holiday projects. I also have another sneak peek from the Catalogue which isn’t Christmas/holiday related.


I have used some Designer Series Paper from the 2016 – 2017 Annual Catalogue however the stamps are from the Holiday Catalogue which you may purchase from on September 1st. (That’s tomorrow!!!)


I’ve used the Holly Berry Happiness Bundle which is a Photopolymer Stamp Set and a Punch which coordinates beautifully with the stamps. I’ve only used the bow from the punch but it has so many possibilities.


Here’s another card made with the same bundle. I’ve made ‘Z’ Fold cards and added some Gold Foil under the Designer Series Paper and on this card, I have used the Gold Wink of Stella Brushes to add some extra bling to the leaves and berries of the stamp.


Here ae the 2 cards side by side and they fit inside one of the Stampin’ Up! C6 Envelopes which I have also stamped on. You can’t have a boring envelope. Let’s start a new movement where we all send a card at Christmas instead of a text or message via computer which, to me, is so impersonal.


The set also comes with a few sentiments and I have chosen this one to stamp inside each card.


The bows are attached with a Glue Dot and the sentiment fits just neatly onto the card insert and there’s still enough room for you to write your message.


Here’s my last project for today and uses Paisleys & Posies photopolymer stamp set. This set allows you to be creative and create your own ‘art work’ with the stamps. I’ve stamped in Versamark and embossed with Copper Emboss Powder.


I’ve also used the new Copper Foil Sheet as a banner behind the Circle which was embossed and then I used the new Sponge Brayer and Sweet Sugarplum to roll ink across the whole circle which is adhered to the Copper Foil Banner with Tombow and then layered up with Dimensionals.

I hope you like these sneak peek projects and would love to read your comments. If you leave a comment and live in Australia (and you’re not a SU Demo) you’ll go in the draw to win a small prize.

Now don’t forget to have a look at the inspiration Leonie and have to share this week and leave a comment on their posts too.

  1. hello Libby,
    I have just seen your Z fold Christmas cards and they are just special.
    I am a demo from central Victoria and I also share a love of owls. In a past part of my life I was a”Brown owl” for some 35 years in the girl guides.

    1. Thanks so much Rosalie. I was a “Rosela” as a Brownie Leader as Brown Owl was taken. Glad you liked my cards and thanks for taking the time to comment
