What's New at SU! First Frost

Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today we are showcasing retiring products from the 2019 - 2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and the 2020 Jan/Jun Mini Catalogue.

The retiring products I'm choosing to showcase are the First Frost stamp set, on page 140 in the Annual Catalogue and its coordinating Frosted Bouquet Dies (now on page 193 of the Annual Catalogue). I remember when this set first came out in the Holiday Catalogue a couple of years ago. I was immediately drawn to it. I still love to create with it, when I get the chance and it's my go to set when I need foliage for any kind of floral arrangement. And those roses!! 

Here's a closer look at my card:

  • I used Pretty Peacock as a base and added a piece of the retiring Garden Lane Designer Series Paper for a background. Then I added a backdrop of Silver Foil Sheet to play up the frosty look and to get that mirror image going, which adds to the fullness of my arrangement.
  • My foliage consisted of vellum leaves and babies breath, just die cut, then stamped and die cut pieces in Mossy Meadow (stamped off) Pretty Peacock, and Sahara Sand. I used Glue dots to arrange all the pieces on the Silver Foil. Glue and other adhesives leave too much mess on foil sheets.
  • I stamped and die cut a large and small rose in each of Rococo Rose and Flirty Flamingo. The bottom two, Flirty Flamingo roses, were added to the project using glue dots. The Rococo Rose ones were mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment is also from the First Frost stamp set and is stamped in Pretty Peacock and die cut using the  Stitched Nested Labels Dies. It's mounted using Glue Dots.

I hope you enjoyed my project with the First Frost stamp set and the Frosted Bouquet Dies. Now please hop on over to Margriet Siekman's blog to see what's new with SU in her world:
