Merry Mistletoe Christmas Card with Buffalo Check

Today’s project has been brewing in my head ever since I saw the Buffalo Check stamp, its pattern is very similar to one in the Under the Mistletoe DSP pack, so I decided to use it as a background for this simple Mistletoe card.

The Mistletoe Season stamp set is the perfect one for beginners and avid crafters alike to use as there are so many gorgeous combinations you can come up with. I’ve used the two mistletoe sprigs for the main focal point of this card. These are two-step stamps with a difference, they don’t completely line up, making them a great starting point for beginners.

I stamped my outline mistletoe in Pear Pizzazz and then took the filler stamp, inked with Pear Pizzazz again but stamped off on scrap paper before stamping on my image. I love how the two-tone image gives the card some depth.

A simple bow stamped in Real Red finishes off the main image. As mentioned above my background was created with the Buffalo Check stamp again with Pear Pizzazz. The Merry Christmas greeting in the bottom corner adds a greeting. To finish the card I added three clusters of the white enamel dots in the Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes to perfectly replicate mistletoe berries.  A simple card which is quick and easy to replicate for those last minute cards you need to make.

Holly Berry Background Card with Blended Seasons

Today I’m sharing another Christmas card made with the Blended Seasons Bundle of products. This time I used the holly stamp to create a back ground for my card and then I coloured it with Poppy Parade and Garden Green Stampin’ markers.

The gold embossed sentiment comes from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, which again I have added to my card using the gorgeous stitched frames from the Stitched Seasons die set. I will really miss these next month when they’re no longer available, so if you’re thinking about making purchase I would hurry before they sell out.

I added the bow die cut and a strip of Poppy Parade cardstock to make the card look like it was a Christmas present.

A little holly and a sentiment finish off the inside. Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project.

Modern Christmas Cards using Christmas Pines and Swirly Scribbles Dies from Stampin’ Up!

Hope you’ve all had a good weekend, here in Yorkshire we’ve had a few flurries of snow which has got my kids very excited, sadly I don’t share their enthusiasm. I’ve stayed inside by my very cosy fire and made this couple of very modern looking cards, something I struggle with but I do like this duo.

I used a colour combination Black, White, Silver with a hint of Melon Mambo to add some brightness. The Melon Mambo parts were die cut from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits which I think are great for adding accents and focal points to your projects.

The patterned paper on each card comes from the Merry Music Speciality DSP and the stamped elements come from the Christmas Pines stamp set. I stamped the greetings on each in Versamark and embossed in Silver to add a bit shine.

To add some extra bling I added some of the Silver Metallic Enamel shapes which are definitely my favourite embellishment from the annual catalogue, I can’t stop using them!

If your thinking of placing an order today is the ideal day to do as we have free shipping on all orders placed before 11pm tonight, so you could order just one pack of the Metallic Enamel Shapes to try them out.

Today I’ve pulled it out and made a very traditional looking card with a Real Red and Emerald envy colour scheme.

Jolly Santa Suit Christmas Card

Today I am sharing another card I made last week with the Santa Suit Bundle. For this card I created a background with the Santa suit images. The jacket and trousers both have stamps for the outlines and for the insides. So you can choose to colour them like I did yesterday or fill in with stamps like I did today.

Santa’s Suit Christmas Card

Hello Everyone,

Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend, with just six weeks to go before Christmas I thought it was time we had a card featuring the special man himself. So today’s card is made from the Santa’s Suit stamp set and Santa Builder Framelits which I had loads of fun playing with last week.

Santa Silhouette Card

For today’s card I wanted the lovely Santa and his sleigh stamp from the Hearts Come Home stamp set to be the focus of the card and what better way to make him the focus than to have him flying across the moon. Surely one of the most iconic images of Christmas Eve everywhere.

To create the card I cut a layer of Night of Navy to 10cm x 14cm and a matching layer of Window Sheet. I then put the two layers together and cut the circle out of the 6cm diameter circle from the Layering Circle Framelits.

I then fixed the window sheet layer temporarily to the front of the card with washi tape. I then took some Crumb Cake ink on a sponge and very lightly inked the bottom left edge of the circle. I then stamped the Santa in the middle of the circle with blank memento ink.

Next take the Night of Navy layer and stamp Joy to the World and some random small stars in Versamark. Heat emboss this with Silver Stampin Emboss Powder to finish the layer.

To complete the card line the Night of Navy layer over the top of the stamped images on the Whisper White card base. The Crumb Cake ink should look like a shadow at the bottom of the moon.

Inside I just stamped a quick greeting in Night of Navy. Join me tomorrow for another card using the Hearts Come Home stamp set.
