Christmas Card featuring the Merry Christmas Thinlits

Following on from yesterday’s card I have another card to share which doesn’t use an stamping. Today its a Christmas card using the Merry Christmas Thinlits and some of the All is Bright Designer Paper.

To add some extra detail to the “Merry Christmas” greeting and the All is Bright background layer I made a layer from vellum. I used the Detailed Bauble Thinlits, first using the detailed doily image and embossing it with the Big Shot Embossing Mats and then cutting out the doily with the edging die.

A simple card with a big impact which is fairly easy to mass produce if you don’t mind a bit of die cutting!

August Customer Thank You Cards with Falling For Leaves

For today’s project I have my August customer thank you cards which you should have all received (hopefully as I gave them to hubby to post, fingers crossed). They are very simple cards which did take a little time to make as there is lot of colouring involved in each card.

I stamped the large maple leaf from Falling for Leaves in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends. The edges used Black Bliss with the centres in Mint Macaron and the remaining details were coloured with Light Pumpkin Pie which looks similar to Grapefruit Grove which is the colour I wanted to use.

After mounting on some Blackberry Bliss card the main card is finished. I stamped the lovely sentiment from the same set onto the second largest set of dies from the Layering Circles Framelits in Blackberry Bliss. Simple cards that were a joy to create.

Copper & Grapefruit Birthday Card

Just a quick post today to share this card with you. It’s show casing the Share What You Love paper which I haven’t pulled out in quite a while. I love how well this floral mixes with the copper, the paper has iridescent shimmer on it and is beautiful.

A couple of die cuts and a stamped greeting from the Stitched All around bundle and the card is finished. Sometimes all you need is some gorgeous paper and a greeting to make a great card.

As you can see I made two cards using one sheet the new In Colour Designer Series Paper Stacks. These paper stacks come in all the colour families meaning we have designer paper in every Stampin’ Up! colour, this makes me incredibly happy as I’m a paper addict and NEEDED, yes needed designer paper in every colour like we did a couple of years ago. So thank you Stampin’ Up! for bringing them back.  I have the whole collection of these on their  way to me and I’m so excited!

I love how versatile the Varied Vases stamp set is, you mix and match the vases and flowers and even chose to just use one of the floral images like I have here. Adding a few of the new Faceted Dots just finishes this card off.

The Varied Vases stamp as has a matching punch, which I haven’t used on these projects but is something I’m looking forward to playing with soon as it will add even more versatility to this fantastic stamp set.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project, if you like some more then please click on the blue box below which will take you to a list of all my fabulous teammates who you visit, who are also participating in this hop.
