Playing Around with Curvy Celebration

Demonstrators around the world have been able to order the Curvy Celebration bundle since the beginning of October. Did you know that one of the advantages of signing up as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is early access to new products? If you're interested in finding out more about joining my team, message me or click on the Join My Team tab at the top of the page.

Next week, starting on 3 November anyone can order this bundle. You can order all of it or parts of it.

There's the Quite Curvy bundle. This is an early release from the January-June Mini Catalogue.

Especially for your Christmas crafting pleasure, there is the limited edition Curvy Christmas - which also coordinates with the Curvy dies.

And... there's also this awesome Classic Christmas 15cmx15cm DSP stack in the luscious Cherry Cobbler, Shaded Spruce and Sahara Sand.

The Stampin' Up Artisan Design team hopped using items from Curvy Celebrations and if you missed it, you can join in with me right here.

Today, I'm sharing with you a couple of other cards I've made using these products.

Curvy Christmas

First up, here's a simple Christmas Card made with the Curvy Christmas set, Curvy dies and Classic Christmas DSP. There's nothing magic here - just the stamps, dies and DSP working together perfectly, as they were intended to do. 

I've cut the white paper into a curvy swoosh, using my favourite die: the eyelet edge. I've slipped a piece of coordinating DSP in the gap.

Then I've simple stamped the sentiment and star swoosh stamps in Tuxedo Black, added in a couple of small Cherry Cobbler stars around the sentiment and used a dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend to colour some of the stars in the star swoosh. 

Don't you love it when a simple card looks as though you've lavished hours on it?

If you like the look of these, order as soon as you can. They are only available while stocks last.

Quite Curvy Bundle

This card did take a little more time because of the colouring of the vine and the birds as well as the building up of the background. However, since those things were both fun and relaxing, it didn't matter at all and the card itself is simply put together.

The vine is coloured with Stampin' Blends in Just Jade, Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green with some touches of Crumb Cake. Isn't is fantastic that such a pretty image can be die-cut so easily and popped up on dimensionals?

The background is really very easy. I simply sponged Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and a touch of Shaded Spruce on Shimmery White Card, starting with lightest in the middle and working to the darkest. Then I gave it a very fine misting of water using a Stampin' Spritzer and left it for a few seconds so that some of the colour lifted before drying it off with the Heat Tool.
