Holly Jolly Santa Card

Who doesn’t love Santa on a Christmas card? I do anyway and what better one than this one from the Holly Jolly Christmas bundle. Such a lovable character which was a delight to colour.

Not the neatest colouring I’ll admit to but I still love him, next time he’ll be coloured beautifully!

A little background paper from the Wrapped in the Plaid makes a great background and the gold stripes in it are brought out with the stamped greeting in Golden Glitz Delicata ink.

A few gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Medley finish the card off.

The Holly Jolly Christmas bundle is part of the Night Before Christmas Suite, a very versatile suite featuring all kinds of Christmas images including: trees, presents, cocoa, reindeers, candy canes, baubles and of course Santa himself!

Thinking of You Christmas Penguin Card

Todays card features the gorgoues Feels Like Frost Speciality Designer Paper which here in Europe has definitly been one of the most popular products of the Autmn/Winter catalogue. I can totally see why this paper pack is so stunning with wintery scenes on one side of each sheet and silver foiled patterns on the other making it suitable for so much more than Christmas. It’s currently in stock as I type this so if you want some grab it as I’m sure it’ll be on backorder again within days.

I’ve used the Itty Bitty Christmas  stamp set for my greeting and paired that with one of the penguins from Playful Penguins. I did have a Seaside Spray scarf cut out for him but it disappeared off my desk before I had chance to stick it down, so imagine it there if you like.

If you’ve managed to get hold of the Feels Like Frost paper then I’d love to know what you’ve created with it.

Christmas Tree Reindeer Card with Most Wonderful Time Medley

I’m sharing another project today made with the Most Wonderful Time, showing how just a piece of Designer Paper, a greeting and a few stickers can make a gorgeous card.

Christmas Tree Reindeer Card (1)

I love the new Delicata inks they stamp beautifully and leave a gorgeous shimmer. I used a blender pen to grab some ink and coloured the reindeer antlers to add a little more gold to the card.

O Christmas Tree Card with the Most Wonderful Time Medley

I’ve just recieved the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley which I think is a great product if you want a collection of coordinating products all in one box. Unlike our project kits these boxes of goodness come with no instructions so the creating is limitless.

Here’s the first card I made, I just has to use that gorgeous Christmas tree stamp and stamp in the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink to make it shimmer.

I decorated the tree with one of the gold stars from the medley and added some of the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels as tree ornaments.

I love all the gold foiled paper in this medley, this striped one is probably my favourite as I can see myself using it all year round, if I have any left that is.

A little gold foil and some of the new Gold Shimmer Ribbon from the Christmastime Is Here Suite available to demonstrators now, finish off the card.

I’ve had loads of fun making cards with this this product medley, I;ll share some more soon.

Three Little Elves Card

How adorable are these cute little Elves, can you just imagine all the mischief they might get up to when we’re not watching. I wanted to go for a non traditional colour scheme so chose Seasside Spray, Mint Macaron and Flirty Flamingo to add to the cute factor.

Stampin’ Blends, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and a little fussy cutting have really brought the little eleves to life.  I didn’t think the card needed much else so added a simple stamped snowflake background and a strip of the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon highlights the sparkle in the glitter.

Penguins at the Northern Lights

For today’s card I’ve taken inspiration from the Autumn/Winter catalogue and cased the sample for Playful Penguins on page 22. The background of this card reminded my of the Northern Lights and I’ve seen numerous cards featuring this effect so I decided to have ago myself.

I used Shimmery White cardstock for my base as it has more of  coating on it making blending easier. I chose a colour palette of Mint Macaron and Lovely Lipstick as the “lights” colours and Night of Navy for the sky.

Firstly blend a layer of Lovely Lipstick ink across the middle of the card, followed underneath by a layer of Mint Macaron. I used a Stamping Sponge cut into quarters for my blending. I covered the rest of the card with layers of Night of Navy ink, lighlty going over the Mint Macaron and Lovely Lipstick and going darker towards the edges.

To add a star effect I used some of the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and flicked it across the blended cardstock using an old paintbrush.

Penguins NL Flat

I fussy cut out two of the Playful Penguins and coloured their feet at beaks with some dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the greeting on an oval from the Layering Ovals dies and then tucked this under the penguins wings.

I love how this background turned out and can’t wait to make more cards with the same technique soon.
