Just a quick post today as I’m snowed under with Christmas wrapping. This is another birthday card made with the Dinoroar suite which has been one of my favourites for childrens cards. These dinosaurs were cut straight from the Dinoroar DSP with the Dino Dies, which makes putting a card together super quick.
I’ve added a little shimmer to this card with the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversable Ribbon and the greeting comes from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.
I think this card would be suitable for boys or girls because of the mix of colours and anyway who doesn’t love a cute dinosaur!
The Free Skate Bundel and stamp set may have sold out here in Europe but as the dies are still available (as I write this) I thought I’d share this birthday card I made using them and the Born to Shine stamp set which features ballerina images.
This card is larger than my usual card bases so I could fit the boots and the two ballerina images. I cut a sheet of A4 to 18cm x 21cm scored in half at 10.5cm. The Rococo Rose layer is 17.5cm x 10cm and the Whisper White layer I stamped on measures 17cm x 9.5cm.
The two ballerina’s were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colured with Rococo Rose and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. I then added the starry background in Petal Pink.
The skate was made from a Rococo Rose detailed outline and a Sparkle Glimmer paper solid layer which were glued together with Liquid Glue.
I adhered the Skate onto a background of Layered Ovals and then added some Rococo Rose laces and a Rhinestone to finish the card.
I’ve left a greeting off this card as I feel its finished as it is, plus there’s plenty of room inside to say exactly what you want.
So this week I’ve started my Christmas gift wrapping and these glittery Christmas Tree Tags are adorning some of them. They’re quick to make and you can get eight from on sheet of A4 so cost effective too.
I’ve used Real Red and Shaded Spruce for that traditional Christmas feel. Firstly cut your cardstock in half on the short edge so you have two have eachmeasuring 105.cm in width. Now cut four tags from each half wth a width of 5cm each. At 5cm they will easily slide into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, giving a decorative top for each tag. To finish off the base of your tags use the Detailed Trio Punch to round off the bottom two corners.
I used the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set to add a greeting to the bottom of each tag. I did use the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink, which is sadly no longer available but I’m hoping most of you were able to get your hands on it. On the back of each tag I used the to/from stamp with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so its easier to label.
For the Real Red Tag I used the Pine Tree Tag to punch trees from the Gold Glimmer paper and decorated them with Real Red Rhinestones and topped with a star from the Most Wonderful Time Medley which was coloured Real Red with a Stampin’ Blends Marker. I topped these tags with some Gold Metallc Edged Ribbon which is Very Vanilla in colour.
For the Shaded Spruce Tags I used Real Red Glimmer paper for the Christmas trees. I decorated these trees with the tinsel ribbon again from the Most Wonderful Time Medley and topped with one of the gold stars. These tags were finished off with some of 3/8″ Real Red cotton ribbon.
Hope you enjoyed todays project and have a go at making your own gift tags.
This card is the perfect way to add some sparkle to your cards and use up any Christmas paper you might have left. Here I’ve used the bauble pattern from the Night Before Christmas DSP collection, any paper in this pack would work as they’re all festive patterns.
The addition of some Gold Glimmer Paper adds just the right amount of festive sparkle to mkae this card really pop.
The greeting come from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and is the perfect sentiment to capture the magic and sparkle of Christmas.

This is another one of those cards that is quick and simple to put together, so perfect for mass production if you’re running out of time to make your cards.
I’ve used one of the sheets from the Night Before Christmas as a background and also as a basis for my colour scheme. I chose to use Cherry Cobbler, Pretty Peacock and So Saffron with a hint of Mossy Meadow.
A strip of the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive Reversable Ribbon adds a little shimmer to the card and the “Merry Christmas” greeting stamped in Mossy Meadow from the Snowman Season stamp set finishes off the card.
Have you managed to pick up the Merry Moose bundle yet? Its low stock so many of you must love him as much as I do. I thought I’d give him another outing before he sells out and add in the cute little raccon for company.
I’ve used the Buffalo Check stamp as my background, stamping Cherry Cobbler ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock to give the card a Nordic vibe.
I used some of the Satin Edge Ribbon in Crumb Cake from the Come to Gather suite across the middle of the card. Of course no card would be complete without a greeting and what better one than Merry Christmoose!!
