The Curvy Celebrations promotion features two early-release products from the January—June 2021 Mini Catalogue, plus two exclusive products available for a limited time only!

This promotion offers customers an opportunity to purchase early, gives them a first glance at the look and feel of the new mini catalogue, and exclusive products perfect for Christmas crafting.

The products from the Curvy Celebrations promotion are great for any type of crafter…beginner, casual, or avid! You can simply stamp an image or two, use one of the die cuts to cut it out, and add it to any project.

Of course, the stamp sets and dies are also great for watercoloring or coloring with Stampin’ Blends Markers, and…adding lots of fun layers and dimension to your projects! Just let your creativity flow!

As a demonstrator, you get early access to Curvy Celebrations products!

During pre-order, products are limited to one of each stamp set and dies (whether purchased separately or as part of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle) and three of the Designer Series Paper.

(Customers can purchase Curvy Celebrations products beginning 3 November 2020.)


Be sure to order your Curvy Celebrations products today!

For this card, I started with some Whisper White Cardstock, and stamped the flowering vine image (from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set) several times, using Gray Granite. I also added some speckling with my Dark Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Marker, by “flicking” the thick end of the marker against the edge of the marker cap…and “flicking” outward towards my paper. After I layered some Gray Granite Cardstock, I used a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to a Whisper White Thick Cardstock base. I then used the curvy filigree die (from the Curvy Dies) to die cut the top edge of some added some Coastal Cabana paper from Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. On top of that, I added a strip from Bermuda Bay DSP, also from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP.

Using my Tuxedo Black Memento Pad, I stamped the little bird (from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set) four times on a strip of Whisper White Thick Cardstock, leaving some extra space between the third and fourth bird. I then used a Water Painter, along with some Flirty Flamingo, to add a very subtle wash of color to each bird. I then distressed the paper, added some Black-White Baker’s Twine (from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack), and popped it up with a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also stamped one more bird, and added a much darker wash of Flirty Flamingo. After I cut it out with the coordinating die (from the Curvy Dies), I popped it up with a couple of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment (also from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set) was heat-embossed on Basic Black Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I cut it out, I popped it up with a few more Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on several of the Woven Threads Sequins.
