Tailored Tag Patchwork Background Christmas Card

I’ve wanted to make a card with a patchwork background created with the Tailored Tag punch ever since I bought which was, a long time ago. Finally I’ve pulled out the Christmastime Is Here Speciality DSP and created this christmas card.

I used 18 punch out tags in four different designs, but you can use any number of patterns you like, just try not to put the same patterns next to each other when you form your patchwork. I adhered these by using Liquid Glue on the card base.

I added a little swirl of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon to add some interest and then placed the large label from the Roses dies over the top with the greeting stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I finished with some of my favourite Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

The Christmastime Is Her suite is only available until the end of the month so if you still thinking about purchasing these products you only have a few days left, I’m just debating how many extra packets of Gold Glitter Enamel Dots I should order.

Santa’s Workshop Elf Card

For this card I was inspired by the little elf and his santas workshop sign so decided to make a card which looked like the outside of the workshop. So I’ve used the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder with Crumb Cake cardstock to create my background and matted thisn on a layer of Real Red.

I coloured the little elf and the parcel with Stampin’ Blends and then fussy cut him out. I used a mix of  Real Red, Call Me Clover and Bermuda Bay for the colouring.

I stamped the greeting from the same #Elfie stamp set onto a square cut from the Layering Squares Dies and then mounted this onto a scalloped Real Red sqaure from the same set.

To finish the card I added three Real Red Glitter Enamel Dots from the Toile Tidings pack.

Think its time this cheeky little elf got back to work now, don’t you.

Christmastime Rose Card

This is the first card I made with the new Christmastime Is Here Suite of products.  How gorgeous is that rose and its cut from the designer paper with a die so this stunning card came together in minutes.

I love that with the die you can cut the paper or stamp the rose outline and then cut that out so all the beautiful detail is kept and not lost with a fussy cutting mishap.

I’ve added some extra detail to this card by using the corner dies to cut some goild foil. I think they look like corners of an ornate frame and I was tempted to added a gold foil matt under the green layer but though that might be too much.

I added a little greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas. I stampe dit in Golden Glitz Delicata ink and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. To fix it to the card I cut a little slit up near the pine cone so  it could slot it among the foiliage and not detract too much from the goregous rose image.

Christmas Tree Reindeer Card with Most Wonderful Time Medley

I’m sharing another project today made with the Most Wonderful Time, showing how just a piece of Designer Paper, a greeting and a few stickers can make a gorgeous card.

I love the new Delicata inks they stamp beautifully and leave a gorgeous shimmer. I used a blender pen to grab some ink and coloured the reindeer antlers to add a little more gold to the card.

A few Gold Metallic Pearls finish off this card. I’ll be sharing more from this product medley next week.

Yuletide Cheer with Holly Christmas Card

This Christmas card is fairly simple to put togther as long as you don’t mind at little fussy cutting for the holly leaves.

The background paper comes from the Come to Gather DSP, I love the linen effect of this paper and think it could work  for a variety of projects.

Yuletide Holly Close Up

Here’s a close up of the holly leaves coloured with Stampin’ Blends and the fussy cut out. I love a bit of fussy cutting, especially at this time of year when I’m spending cosy nights in front of the fire. If you’re not a fan of fussy cutting then you could use the holly berry stamp and dies from the Free Skate Bundle.

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.
