Wishes & Wonder for New at SU Blog Hop

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 the new 2020 Aug/Dec Mini Catalogue and all it's beautiful new holiday products. I am using the Wishes & Wonder Bundle to create a card and 3D candy or treat holder that go together and I think you'll have fun with the two projects.

  • Those stately reindeer look like they are just waiting to be hitched to a sleigh so after featuring one of them on my card front, I had to make a 3D project using the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box to support the sleigh.
Let's take a closer look at the card first:

  • On a Crumb Cake card base I used a card from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack for the back ground. It was a 4" x 6" card so I had to cut the length down to 5 1/4". It worked better than any of the paper in the 'Tis the Season DSP because of the gold in it, which complemented my design.
  • I die cut a rectangle of the Wonder of the Season Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Stitched Rectangle Dies and then used one of the Stitched So Sweetly Stitched Scalloped Rectangle dies to die cut a frame for it in Gold Foil. I used the same Gold Foil Sheet to die cut one of the reindeer which I added to the card front using dimensionals and mini dimensionals.
  • The two sentiments, or rather the sentiment and the medallion were stamped on Whisper White with Versamark Ink, and heat embossed using Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. The lower sentiment was just cut out on a strip and glued to the card front using Stampin' Seal.
  • The medallion was die cut using dies from the North Pole Wonder Dies, including the backing in Real Red and some Shaded Spruce Argyle ribbon was added using Stampin' Seal+. The Medallion was attached to the card front with dimensionals.
  • I made a Curvy Keepsake Box from Crumb Cake cardstock. (So easy!) It is perfect for a couple of Hersey Kisses inside.
  • I heat embossed the sleigh image twice with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder on Real Red cardstock and die cut with North Pole Wonder dies. Then the die cut sleigh were attached to the Curvy Keepsake box using Stampin' Seal+.
  • Two more reindeer were die cut using the same set from Gold Foil sheets and set upright on Crumb Cake cardstock using Glue Dots on their feet and a strip of Foam Adhesive strip to help prop them up on the wrong side, near their feet.
  • I stamped the fir tree from the Winter Woods stamp set from the Annual Catalogue and die cut it with the coordination In the Woods dies and set it upright in a similar fashion.
  • I used the Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack as reins around the necks of the reindeer and tied to the handle of the Curvy Keepsake box.

I hope you enjoyed my project with the Wishes & Wonder Bundle. Now please hop on over to Aneke's blog to see what's new with SU in her world:
