Today I wanted to create a Christmas card that used a non-traditional colour scheme and had a more modern feel. I chose a colour scheme of Pool Party, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla and paired them up with the Twinkle Trees Stamp Set.
I love how this turned out and can see myself making a Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum version. The greeting which I think works really well on this card comes from the Star of Light stamp set. I added a little ribbon to the edge but think the design could work just as well without.
I love making quick and easy cards, especially at Christmas when we need more than usual. This super quick card just took a few minutes to make and can be easy replicated.
The cute little Santa is made from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and punch simply stamped in the archival black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Markers. He’s mounted on an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits which are possibly one of my favourite sets of Framelits. The banner was created by using banner from the Bunch of Banners and a greeting from Star of Light which is set I really need to play with more.
The background was a just three strips of the Candy Cane Lane DSP, which is included in this months special paper sale. Buy three packs of DSP and get a fourth pack for free, so its the perfect time to stock up on your favourites.
Today’s card was made using the Candy Cane Designer paper as a focus and was super quick to make. I took the paper with the little gingerbread houses and cut three out to form the main focus point.
The background was created using the Softly Falling Textured embossing folder and some Whisper White cardstock. I then finished the card off with some of the gorgeous stitched grosgrain ribbon in real red and a greeting from the Star of Light stamp set which has been cut out using the Bunch of Banners Framelits.
Today’s card is one some of you may be receiving in the post today, its my September thank you card, which has been sent to everyone who shopped with me this month to say thank you for choosing me as your Demonstrator.
I chose to use the Paisleys & Posies stamp set which is fast becoming one of my favourites and one which I’m hoping makes it to next years catalogue. Its such a versatile set and with the matching Framelits set you could play for hours.
I made the three medallions by stamping three each of the shapes in Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron. I then die cut these with the matching Framelits and also die cut three small circles in the copper foil which I also adore!
Here is a close up of the medallions:
I made the card base out of Mint Macaron and used some of the Rich Razzleberry patterned paper from the Petals & Paisleys speciality dsp matted on some copper foil as a base for the medallions.
The greeting comes from the same stamp set and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White and then cut it into a banner using my scissors.
Want to receive one of my thank you cards next month, then simply place an order of any amount with me and I’ll send you one as a thank you.
Today I decided to join in with the Pootles Colour Challenge #0013. The colours for this week are: Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron and Chocolate Chip. These colours just scream Christmas to me so I chose to use the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set and matching Framelits as there are loads of possibilities with this stamp set. So here is what I came up with:
I used a base of Mint Macaron and a matt of Cherry Cobbler to start with, followed by a layer of Whisper White. I stamped three of the Christmas trees in Chocolate Chip ink onto Emerald Envy cardstock and then cut then out with the matching die and the bigshot machine.
I wanted to just layer the trees onto the Whisper White layer but it looked a little flat so I added a background of stars stamped in Mint Macaron. I stamped the greeting in Chocolate Chip ink onto Mint Macaron cardstock which I then cut into a strip to fit across the card. I added a little embellishment with some Emerald envy enamel stars which I love.
Hope you like it
So here it is my first Christmas card of 2016 and what a cute stamp set to use Merry Mice. its so adorable!
I used a base of Cherry Cobbler which has to be my favourite colour to use at Christmas and paired it with a matt of Crumb Cake which I embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder. The mouse image was stamped onto watercolour paper and then coloured in using inks and the aqua painter. I then used the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut the image out and matt onto a Cherry Cobbler scalloped oval.
The greetings banner was created using the Birthday Banners stamp set and the Bunch of Banners Framelits, I think the greeting from the Merry Mice set fits in perfectly.
I finished off the card with some White Perfect Accents which I just love for adding a little something to finish off a card.
This week I have been surrounded by poorly children who have now passed their delightful germs onto me, so the obvious choice for this week was a get well card.
I also don’t think we could focus on this set and not make some get well cards as this is the Ronald MacDonald House Charities set which raises money to help families with sick children who are receiving treatment far from home., so this is definitely a set you should consider as £2.00 from every sale goes to the charity.
I went for a super simple card this week with a couple of layers and just a little stamping. Here is the card
I chose a colour scheme of Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Smokey Slate and I love how well they work together. The only dimension on the card is the top of the umbrella as I wanted to make it easy for posting.
