Welcome to Birdwing Paper Designs and the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!
Today we are offering a sneak peek into a new promotion from the upcoming January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue. This is an early release of not just one, but two products which also includes exclusive products perfect for Christmas!!
Starting October 1, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators will get early access to the new Curvy Celebrations products. The Quite Curvy Variety Bundle includes festive stamp sets, curvy dies, and brand new holiday DSP!!
For this blog hop, I was delighted to use the Curvy Christmas stamp set, coordinating Curvy Dies, and… Classic Christmas DSP! These new products arrived at the perfect time for creating Christmas paper crafts!!
I wanted to create a fun, paper ornament for the front of this Christmas card that could be removed and used as a decoration for a gift bag or hung on a tree!
I started making the ornament by rolling 1″ squares of Classic Christmas DSP into cone shapes. Once I had 13 cones, they were arranged in a circle and adhered to a small piece card stock at the back with Tear and Tape.
Once the cones were put together, I decorated the front with elements from the Curvy Christmas stamp set and Curvy Dies. I matched the curve of the sentiment to the curve of the dies to create an eye-catching greeting! To finish off this little ornament, I added a swirl of embroidered ribbon to the back.
The base of the card is Brushed Metallic card stock sandwiched between two layers of Whisper White. The top layer has a sprinkling of stars stamped in Sahara ink.
I adhered the ornament to the card base with a couple Glue Dots so it would be easy to remove and use as an ornament or gift tag.
If you haven’t started your Christmas cards yet, I hope this will inspire you to get creating!!
The Curvy Celebrations products are available to Demonstrators Oct 1 – Nov 2, 2020 and are a limited time early release. (Customers can begin purchasing these products on November 3, 2020.) During preorder, products are limited to one of each stamp and dies and three of the DSP. Don’t wait… buy these great Curvy Celebrations products today!!
