Holiday 2017 Sneak Peek: Cheery Chirps

I am excited to share my first card made with products from the new 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog! As a demonstrator I have been able to pre-order for a month before the catalog goes live to customers tomorrow, September 1st. One of the sets that caught my eye was Cheery Chirps, which has images perfect for watercoloring. Don’t you just just love how this holiday bird is framed by the pretty wreath?

I took inspiration from the sample in the catalog for my colors but I made them a little more intense. I used Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler for the bird, Wild Wasabi and Old Olive for the leaves, and Pool Party (with a little Tempting Turquoise mixed in) for the sky. The bird was stamped on Shimmery White cardstock in Basic Black Archival ink, and all the colors were applied with an Aqua Painter and ink taken from the top of each Classic Stampin’ Pad.

Even though I used Cherry Cobbler on the bird’s wings, it matched up better with Real Red cardstock. I love the way the double matting looks like a postage stamp, and the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes was the perfect size to sit under the bird. The Real Red background panel might have looked a little plain, but not with the striking new pattern made by the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. While I purchased this embossing folder to go with the Christmas Quilt bundle, the pattern will be perfect for lots of sets from the Holiday Catalog as well as many other occasions.
