 Lucky, lucky us, Stampin’ UP! has also released a new 10-piece package of Watercolor Pencils in some yummy new fresh colors. And aren’t they beautiful.  If you haven’t tried Watercolor Pencils, Blended Seasons is the perfect set to get you started.  They are so forgiving and can be blended with either a Blender Pen, Aqua Painter or Clear Wink of Stella Pen.

For my first Blended Seasons project, and certainly not the last, I created a lovely Christmas card gift set.  This would be a great hostess, teacher, or special friend gift.  The set includes four cards and envelopes and they are all packaged in one of our Acetate Card Boxes.

One of the best parts of this creation is that I’m giving you a sneak peek of some new Holiday Catalog products.  I was lucky enough to get these during my Alaska Incentive Trip.

I didn’t have my new watercolor pencils when I designed this gift set, so I used our Stampin’ Write Markers in Cherry Cobbler, Call Me Clover and Shaded Spruce.  See how versatile the coloring is with Blended Seasons.  You can use your coloring medium of choice, whether that’s Watercolor Pencils, Stampin’ Write Markers or Stampin’ Blends.

Annual WOW Christmas Keepsake Ornament

Annual WOW Christmas Keepsake Ornament

christmas, ornament, night of Bethlehem, gift, snowflake sentiments, foil snowflakes, copper foil

I love traditions and this is one of my favorites: creating an annual Christmas Keepsake Ornament for my WOW Club Members. This year I found this sweet little copper lantern online and as soon as I saw them, I knew I wanted to incorporate the Night in Bethlehem Bundle in the design. And lucky us, that bundle will carry over, but the bundle pricing is only good through January 2, 2018.  After that, you would loose the 10% bundle discount.

christmas, ornament, gift, night in Bethlehem, snowflake sentiments, gift

I absolutely had a fabulous time designing this gift for my Club Members.  Each of them will get to create one of their very own at our Annual Holiday Celebration.This year the rage is everything metallic.  I’ve incorporated copper, silver and gold to make just the right amount of glitz and glimmer.  Mary, Joseph and the Shepard were all stamped in Night of Navy ink, the perfect match to the copper lantern.

Those lovely little sprigs are in the holiday catalog, but alas, they will be retiring.  Be sure to scoop some up and add a pot of the embossing paste to your order so you can highlight them as I’ve done here.  It’s quick and easy and adds that realistic snowy look.  And behind the “Rejoicing in Christ” sentiment, I added a half of one of the fantastic Foil Snowflakes.  

I’ld love to see how many of my blog subscribers would like a video-tutorial on the project in case you would like to add this creation to your tree. Just leave a comment letting me know.  By the way, you could start a tradition too, this could be your first WOW Christmas Keepsake Ornament!

Here’s how the magic happens:

  • City Scapes: Shimmer White CS – cut one from each die 5″ x 1 3/4″
  • Top Accent Trim: Whisper White CS – cut two 6″ x 1 1/2″
  • Mary, Joseph, Shepard: Shimmer White CS – 5″ x 2 1/4″, stamped in Night of Navy Ink
  • Sentiment: Shimmer White CS 2″ x 3 1/2″ and Copper Foil 3″ x 2″
  • Lantern Top Accent: Gold Foil 1 1/4″ x 2″
  • Star: Gold Foil 1 1/2″ x 3″

I’ve made it super simple for you to get what you really want this Christmas season.  Just print off the Christmas Wish List.  All my contact info is there and when your family and friends give me a call or send me an email, I’ll take care of everything else.  What could be easier?

Just remember to leave it out and handy because I’ll need to get your selections by December 11th in order to guarantee Christmas delivery.  Unfortunately, UPS doesn’t have a fleet of reindeer, only brown trucks, that aren’t very magical.

By the way, I’ll also be sure to include a FREE new Spring Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Brochure for you with your gift package.  Wait until you see all those goodies.  But, wait Valentines Day is right around the corner and you can put those items on a whole new wish list, hahaha!

Santa’s Reindeer Food Treat Holder

Seems like the reindeer have lost their way and need some help finding the houses of all those good little boys and girls. I’ve got a great way to help them out: glittery reindeer food, of course! I’ll be teaching this sweet reindeer treat holder soon, but if you want to create one of your very own, I’ve got a video tutorial. I would love to share with you how the magic happens with all the dimensions and details on the project.

Your kiddos will be thrilled to have this little treat holder filled with Santa’s Reindeer Food to ensure that Rudolf finds his way straight to their door. Why not start a Christmas Eve family tradition? You and the special children in your life can gather outdoors, sprinkle the reindeer food and make not only Christmas wishes but wonderful memories together.

Did you know we have these sweet little test tube treat holders in the Holiday Catalog? They are sold in a package of twelve for only $5. You can create four of these sweet little treat holders with just one package of the test tubes. That’s a bargain in my book.

Here’s how the magic happens:

  • Base: Real Red CS 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 1/2″, 3″, 4 1/2″ and 7″
  • Mats: Garden Green one @ 4″ x 1/4″ and one @ 4″ x 2 1/4″
  • Mats: Christmas Around the World DSP one @ 4″x 1″ and one at 4″ x 2″
  • Sentiment: Very Vanilla 3 1/2″ x 2 1/4″, stamped in Soft Suede with the stamp from Merry Little Labels and cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits
  • Circle: Garden Green, punched with the 1 3/4″ circle punch
  • Reindeer: Soft Suede 3″ x 3 1/2″, stamped in Soft Suede with the stamp from Santa’s Sleigh and cut with the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits.
  • Starburst: Gold Glimmer Paper, punch one with the Starburst Punch.
  • Ribbon: Red Tinsel 10″
  • Baker’s Twine: White 8″
  • Stamp Sets: Merry Little Labels, Santa’s Sleigh

This video tutorial will guide you step by step through the design process. I hope you enjoy it. I’d love your feedback!
