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.

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.

Tidings of Joy card with the Christmas Pines Stamp Set

Last Christmas the Christmas Pines stamp set and matching die set was one of my favourite things from the Autumn/Winter catalogue and I was so happy it made it into our annual catalogue as its such a great set. 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.
