Merry Christmoose 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!!

Roses & Ribbon Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing another card made with the Christmastime Is Here Suite of products, this time focusing on the paper with the smaller roses. This is a lovely sheet of paper and I wasn’t sure cutting up was the best decision butI wanted those small and roses seperate and I do have three more sheets to use up.

The gold edging on the background comes from one of the dies in the Roses collection, I just added along each edge of my backing paper so there was a little detail which sepreated in from the card base.

For the main part of the card I stamped the Merry Christmas greeting from the Christmas Rose stamp set in Golden Glitz Delicata Ink onto a Stiched Nested Label. Before I adhered this to my card I added a length of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon underneath the label to add some more interest and lift it from the background paper.

I finished the card off by adding my fussy cut roses to two corners of the label and then added a few of the smallest Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

Floral Friday – Climbing Roses

As its Friday I thought I’d share one of my Floral Friday projects with you this week and today’s card was made using the Climbing Roses Bundle. Roses are one of my favourite flowers so I’ve loved having this lovely big image to sit and colour.

After adding the greeting’s panel it looked a little lost so I added a few of the smaller roses to help it blend in with my rose background more.

I really love how this card turned out and it was nice to break away from my normal card size and make a 5″ square tent fold card for a change.

Be Merry Mistletoe Duo

Today I’ve got two cards for the price of one with the duo made from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set and the Be Merry DSP. These products can both be found in the annual catalogue on page 113. Initially I overlooked Merry mistletoe but when it was in the sale last week I ordered myself a set and its growing on me. I love the Be Merry DSP mainly because I’m a real sucker for Cherry Cobbler, for me its the perfect Christmas red, but I  also love how half of these papers contain generic patterns which can be used all year round. My favourite sheet though is still the cute little reindeer paper which I’ve used both sides of in todays projects.

What more do you need than some gold embossing powder and gold foil to make a beautiful card. I love the simplicity of this card and think it perfectly highlights the lovely reindeer stamp.

The other side of the reindeer paper is this garden green hounds tooth pattern, which is a little full on when you look at a whole sheet but works well with small amounts here. I’ve added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the mistletoe berries to add a little sparkle, just wish my photography skills were better so you could see how lovely it looks.

Here are both cards together, which is your favourite. Despite loving the reindeer paper I think the mistletoe one is my favourite, I just love the glitter.

Christmas Candles Card

Today I’ve gone for another traditional colour scheme of Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler, which the perfect combination for Christmas. I’ve used the candle stamps from Merry Patterns today and was surprised how much I loved stamping them. The candle image is built up from three steps, an outline and then two filler stamps for the candles so you can have alternating colours. They were so easy to line up too!

I added a patterned background paper from the Merry Little Christmas DSP paper and finished the card off with the Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched Ribbon which had just arrived with some new goodies.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project and join me for more inspiration tomorrow.

Gold Graceful Garden

Happy World Card Making Day! Hope you’re all enjoying a little crafting today. For today’s card I chose to feature Graceful Garden, which has 15% off until Monday. As you know I love my floral sets and I particularly adore the rose images in this set, as soon as I get more watercolour paper I’m going to be colouring that gorgeous big rose. Today I chose to focus on the small rose image and use it more of an accent for the card.

The combination of Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Gold give this card a very luxurious feel and make it perfect to give as an anniversary card or birthday card for that special someone.

I’ve added the Gold Metallic edged ribbon behind my circle to soften the card and add a little bit of texture.

Inside I’ve repeated the same rose image on the bottom right corner. I really love how this card turned out and think its my favourite so far from this week.

Join me tomorrow for another project using the 15% stamp sets.

Christmas Sparkle Coffee Cup Card

When I think of Christmas I immediately think of all things sparkly, Christmas lights, stars, pretty packages so for today’s card I’m adding some extra sparkle to my project with the Gold Glimmer paper. This stuff is fabulous, super duper sparkly and hardly any glitter loss, plus a little bit really gives your project the wow factor.

Once again I’m using the Coffee Café bundle and the Merry Café stamp set for my card, I love how easy a card comes together with these products. I started today’s card with a card base in Cherry Cobbler measuring 14.5cm x 21cm, scored and folded at 10.5cm. I next took a strip of the black coffee cup paper from the Coffee Break DSP measuring 14.5cm x 8cm and stuck this to the card base.

Next I took the Decorative Ribbon Border punch and punched a full 12″ length of Gold Glimmer Paper, I cut this to two strips of 14.5cm and stuck it onto the card front using multipurpose adhesive sponged on the back.

I next stamped and cut out the pieces for the coffee cup and the stitched oval, including a gold glimmer coffee lid for the cup. I glued these two the stitched oval  and finished the card off by adding the gold glimmer edging to the coffee cup wrapper. These gold strips were the offcuts from using the punch and fit the wrapper perfectly and also add some extra sparkle.

I’m yet to decorate the inside of this card but I’m thinking one of the cute little coffee cups with the heart on which are on the black paper will look good in the bottom right corner.
