Curvy Christmas Stamp Set Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share my YouTube Live video with you that I just did a little while ago on my YouTube Channel introducing the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set and other products in the Curvey Celebrations Early Release that will go live on November 3, 2020.  

The products in this early release are part of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle.  The Quite Curvy Variety Bundle can be used for Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day crafts. The products can be bought separately, or you can save 10% by purchasing them all! The Quite Curvy Variety Bundle includes everything you need to create cards for a variety of upcoming special occasions. You will want to act quickly and grab these exclusive, early-release products once they are available to the public or you could add them to your Starter Kit Today!  The Stampin' Up! Starter kit is always the best deal!

For my Card today I used the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set, the Curvy Dies and the Classic Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper that are part of the Quite Curvy Release. The Curvy Christmas Stamp Set will allow you to create one-of-a-kind Christmas crafts!  I love the how the sentiments and the some of the imagery has the curves to match the Curvy Dies.  Plus there are so many other images in inside that will allow you to create anything that you would like.  The curviness of these images will make for a fun little holiday element on any project.

I used the the Dainty Diamond 3D Embossing Folder as an accent on my card today; it was the perfect texture to add to the card without taking away from the curvy flow going on.  I embossed a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Shaded Spruce with the Dainty Diamond 3D Folder and added it to the card base with just a little Stampin' Seal Adhesive.

Next I used my Stamparatus to stamp both the sentiment and the star border from the Curvy Christmas Stamp Set onto a 2 1/4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce Ink and the Stars in Crushed Curry Ink.  I picked my colors not only from the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper but I through in the Crushed Curry because it's a great compliment to the festive colors going on with my card today.

After stamping the sentiment and star border I cut a 2" x 5 1/4" strip of the Classic Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and ran it through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the stitched Curvy Die from the Curvy Die Set.  I attached this layer to the Whisper White layer with some Stampin' Seal and popped the entire panel up on my card with a lot of Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish off my card I added a few of the Star Designer Elements to the star border going along the side of the Whisper White layer.  This added a little more texture to the card and a nice metallic element.

What I've been Up to

 You may be wondering why you haven't seen a lot of card posts on my blog the last few weeks.  Well I have  been busy working on my studio.  I have been in the throws of cleaning and rearranging my space.  For some reason when I start to clean my studio I want to rearrange everything.  And when I want to rearrange I have to tear everything up and then build it back again.  


Here's one of the spaces that I worked on the last few weeks.  I had a BOGO Sale Online at the end of September and have had all my BOGO Retired Products sitting out on two folding tables since June.  I knew that I was going to do another one in September so I didn't want to drag it out and put it back up.  But I finally have it all put away until the next one in February.  
Once I got all the BOGO stuff put away I could start working on my desk.  And, this is where the I had to tear it all apart and rearrange everything.  So, I worked on cleaning everything while working on that I decided that I needed a more functional space.  So, that meant I sat down and figured out what areas I need.  One that when you have a studio space is to have a area for the things that you need.  For example when I sat down and made my list of areas, I needed a area for the following; Video Area, Photo Area, Desk Area, Cutting Area, and Die Cutting Area.  Having these areas will help me stay more organized and everything will stay in it's places.  I will be sharing photos and a walk through of the new space later this week.  
This is my Paper Storage area and for some reason it's always a place that seems to be a catch all.  It seems to be a place where things go to die LOL.  So, this was a major area that needs attention.  I will share pictures and some storage ideas as I mentioned later in the week so be watching for that post soon.  I just wanted to give you a heads up on what's been going on in my live.  I will talk to you soon unless this mess falls on my head and I am stuck underneath.  
Happy Stampin'
