Today I’m super excited that I’m part of the Pootler’s Design Team for November, this month the stamp set that we have been given to work is The Little Things which is such a cute set for creating labels for all occasions.

For this week’s project I have chosen to focus on the gorgeous “December Deliciousness” stamp, I have used it to create a set of notecards which would be suitable for my little girl to hand out to her classmates.

For some reason this stamp reminds me of lasts years Candy Cane Lane DSP so used this to create a colour scheme of Crumb Cake, Early Expresso, Real Red and Very Vanilla.

For these two cards I wanted to cover up the words so I took the stripe stamp and stamped in Real Red, I then cut this out using the Bunch of Banners. For the greeting I took the Made Extra Special stamp and just inked up the “Just For You” you with the Early Expresso marker and then punched this out with the Classic Label Punch.

For this second set of notecards I wanted to use the same set but use a more Christmassy greeting. To make a space for a greeting I covered the December Deliciousness up with washi tape and inked up the stamp. Remember to remove the washi tape before stamping or you will have a big brown splodge….like I did the first time I did these cards.

For this last set I still wanted them to match but didn’t want to use the big stamp. I used the same greeting as the previous two notecards with the stamps from Merry Café in the middle. I then stamped the gingerbread man and the star in Early Expresso and Crumb Cake. I love these little stamps, I mean is there anything cuter than a mini gingerbread man?

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project, if you want to see what the rest of the team created the links can be found on http://www.pootles.com

Nordic Inspired Stitched With Cheer Card

I love the way the “Nordic” theme creeps into clothes and home décor at Christmas and the Stitched With Cheer set is perfect for creating your own Nordic inspired cards and crafts for Christmas. This card features a simple colour scheme of Cherry Cobbler and Crumb which I just love.

My Christmas tree line didn’t go quite to plan so I added the greetings panel to cover up a splodge, oops! I think its turned out okay though and can’t wait to pull this one out to play  again soon…hopefully before it sells out.

Here is a close-up of the greetings panel. I  love adding the little pearls to cards as a finishing accent. The cherry cobbler layer of the banner was just a die-cut which I cut in half to lengthen the banner  and also to make the greeting stand out more against the background.
