I love being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator! One of the perks is being able to preorder products from new catalogs a month before the catalog goes live. My first purchase from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog was the Sweet Candy Canes Bundle and the Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. Find them on pages 8 and 9 of the catalog.

For the card above, I paired the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set and coordinating Candy Canes Dies with a SaleABration item: the Silver and Gold 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. During SaleABraiton months, July and August, earn free, exclusive stamp sets, dies, and Designer Series Paper with minimum purchases of $50 and $100. (See something you like? Make sure to order before it’s gone. Supplies are limited.) Click here to see a PDF of the SaleABration brochure.
I heat embossed the candy canes with gold embossing powder, die cut them, and added them to a Basic White cardstock panel cut with the Deckled Rectangle Dies. Embellish with ribbon and jewels, and you have created an elegant, handmade greeting card.
The card above showcases the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper. I die cut the candy canes directly from the patterned paper and layered them on different panels of the paper. It makes for another quick and easy holiday card.
Here’s another example of a quick, cute, card. Stamp the candy canes with Real Red ink, die cut, and layer on a piece of the festive Designer Series Paper. Hint: Use a Stamparatus so you can restamp the candy canes to achieve deep, red images.
