Welcome to InKing Royalty’s August Blog Hop. Stampin’ Up!’s 2015 Holiday Catalog is just around the corner (it’s live on September 1) – and this amazing book is filled to the brim with incredible bundles at discounted prices. Who doesn’t love to save with bundles?!? Today we are Bundled Up for the Holidays as we celebrate these amazing stamp set bundles from the Holiday Catalog. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
I’d like to propose a toast to all the InKing Royalty team members, and to the new Holiday catalog!
I love to use products in alternative ways from their original intention. I happened to glance at page 15 of the new Holiday catalog upside down. The Embellished Ornaments stamp set and Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies help us create gorgeous ornaments, but upside down they reminded me of wine glasses.
I used the two open ornament dies to cut Blackberry Bliss card stock and a clear Window Sheet. I cut the clear pieces straight across to make the bowls. Then I cut the Blackberry Bliss pieces at an angle, because I knew I wanted the glasses of wine to be tilted in for a toast. I would like to note that the Blackberry Bliss looks much richer in person. In the photo, there is a lot of reflection off the clear wine glass.
I used my Paper Snips to cut the stems from the Window Sheet, and then to cut some scraps of a Gold Foil Sheet as a decorative element – and to hide where the pieces are adhered together!
On a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, I stamped the holly in Mossy Meadow, and I heat embossed the sentiment in gold. Then I adhered the wine glasses. I cut the mat from Blackberry Bliss card stock, and the card base from a Gold Foil Sheet.
The mistletoe background of the photo is a piece of Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper.
I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop. There’s a lot of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!
