The background designer paper comes from the Pattern Party pack and I love how this pattern looks like snowballs.
I stamped the snowman onto the new Snow White Velvet paper to add to the snowy effect I wanted. I then added him onto two Layered Circles, one in Real Red and one in white stamped with Pool Party snowflakes.
For a final touch I added some of the Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon and a touch of Pumpkin Pie Blends as every snowman needs a carrot for a nose right?
Happy October everyone! Where has this year gone? Now its truly Autumn its time to crank up the Christmas crafting so I’m starting off today with a fairly simple design which can be easily replicate, meaning you’ll soon have those Christmas cards made.
I’m using the Peaceful Deer stamp set along with the Deer Builder punch, both can also be bought as a bundle. Using the punch you can stamp out two of the stamped images and its also co-ordinated with the Peaceful Prints DSP from Sale-A-Bration which has now ended.
For this project I used a card base measuring 10.5cm x 21cm as I origianally wanted to fit all nine of Santa’s reindeer on the card, this sadly didn’t work so I’ve made two different cards. One with three reindeer and one with four.
For the background I used Misty Moonlight ink and blended it across the centre of the card. I then took the little star cluster stamp and stamped all over the blended ink.
For the deer I stamped them in Gray Granite ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock and then punched them out. I adhered them on the card with liquid glue.
I stamped Merry Christmas in versamark onto Misty Moonlight cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I then cut into a banner using the Banners Pick A Punch. I cut a second red banner from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP.
To finish off my card I added a red rhinestone to one reindeer on each card so each one has their own Rudolf.
I think I prefer the card with just three reindeer, how about you?
How cute is this little turtle? Turtle Friends is definitley one of the first sets that caught my eye in the new catatlogue and the best thing about this stamp set, the matching punch so you can go turtle mad.
For this card I’ve stuck to just turtle stamped in our new Evening Evergreen onto Soft Succulent cardstock. I’m not usually a green person but I do love these two new colours, especially the Evening Evergreen which I’m hoping features heavily in the up and coming mini catalogue in July, it’s never too early to think about Christmas!
Anyway back to this card, the card base and background are both Fresh Freesia. The background layer I ran through the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder as I think it works perfectly with the pattern on the turtles shell.
I’ve added a few diecut balloons from the Hippo & Friends Dies and some of the new Loose Flower Flourishes in Pale Papaya, we need these in every colour I LOVE them!!
I’ve struggled to use the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP as its bright and has a lot of busy feeling patterns. I’ve pulled it out today and I’m quite happy with the soft pastel effect I’ve managed to create.
I’ve used the palest pattern in the pack as a background and paired it with a colour scheme of Soft Sea Foam and Flirty Flamingo, with just a touch of Calypso Coral paper just to help the dragonflies pop.
The dragonflies are stamped in Flirty Flamingo, I’ve used the blender pen to add some colour to the bodies and then added some shimmer to the wings with Wink of Stella and some pearls to act as a trail behind the dragonflies.
Daffodil coloured Tulips, well why not! I don’t use yellow that much as I’m more of a pink/purple girl so today I used Daffodil Delight as my starting point and paired it with Granny Apple Green.
I’m loving seeing the daffodils in my garden but as we dont currently have any daffodil images I’m using Timeless Tulips.
I’ve simply stamped the tulip heads in Daffodil Delight, filling in the gaps with second generation stamping and then added some leaves and stems in Granny Apple Green. I’ve then added some punched out Tulips to add a little dimension.
I’ve added a length of Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon across the card to add my greeting label, I’m sad this ribbon is leaving us as its been one of my favourites ffrom this catalogue.
A simple card but think its sure to brighten someones day.
