Holly Jolly Santa Card

Who doesn’t love Santa on a Christmas card? I do anyway and what better one than this one from the Holly Jolly Christmas bundle. Such a lovable character which was a delight to colour.

Not the neatest colouring I’ll admit to but I still love him, next time he’ll be coloured beautifully!

A little background paper from the Wrapped in the Plaid makes a great background and the gold stripes in it are brought out with the stamped greeting in Golden Glitz Delicata ink.

A few gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Medley finish the card off.

The Holly Jolly Christmas bundle is part of the Night Before Christmas Suite, a very versatile suite featuring all kinds of Christmas images including: trees, presents, cocoa, reindeers, candy canes, baubles and of course Santa himself!

Thinking of You Christmas Penguin Card

Todays card features the gorgoues Feels Like Frost Speciality Designer Paper which here in Europe has definitly been one of the most popular products of the Autmn/Winter catalogue. I can totally see why this paper pack is so stunning with wintery scenes on one side of each sheet and silver foiled patterns on the other making it suitable for so much more than Christmas. It’s currently in stock as I type this so if you want some grab it as I’m sure it’ll be on backorder again within days.

I’ve used the Itty Bitty Christmas  stamp set for my greeting and paired that with one of the penguins from Playful Penguins. I did have a Seaside Spray scarf cut out for him but it disappeared off my desk before I had chance to stick it down, so imagine it there if you like.

If you’ve managed to get hold of the Feels Like Frost paper then I’d love to know what you’ve created with it.

O Christmas Tree Card with the Most Wonderful Time Medley

I’ve just recieved the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley which I think is a great product if you want a collection of coordinating products all in one box. Unlike our project kits these boxes of goodness come with no instructions so the creating is limitless.

Here’s the first card I made, I just has to use that gorgeous Christmas tree stamp and stamp in the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink to make it shimmer.

I decorated the tree with one of the gold stars from the medley and added some of the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels as tree ornaments.

I love all the gold foiled paper in this medley, this striped one is probably my favourite as I can see myself using it all year round, if I have any left that is.

A little gold foil and some of the new Gold Shimmer Ribbon from the Christmastime Is Here Suite available to demonstrators now, finish off the card.

I’ve had loads of fun making cards with this this product medley, I;ll share some more soon.

Simple Snowman Card

Today I’m featuring the products in the Let It Snow Suite again, focusing on the Snowman Builder Punch and the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit. I love this embellishment kit as it contains everything you need to turn a simple punched shape into a cute snowman with his own little felt hat.

For the background I simply stamped some of the snowflakes from the Snowman Season stamp set in Real Red ink on the Real Red cardstock to give a tone on tone look.

A strip of the Let It Snow Speciality DSP and a greeting stamped on the frame from the Wild Rose dies finishes the outside of the card.

A few snowflakes in Pool Party and a greeting in Real Red finish off the inside of the card.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this cute little project, the Let It Snow Embellishment kit is proving very popular so  if you want to have a play with it then I’d been ordering one soon.

Snowmen Card Duo

What better way to celebrate the first frosty morning of the season than with two gorgeous snowman cards. Both of these cards were very simple to make but and bright and cheery and perfect for celebrating the snowy season.

I’m drawn to the Snowmen sets every year but I think Snowman Season could easily be my favourite by Christmas. I love all the matching products in the Let It Snow Suite, especially the punch which makes snowman building so easy. Added bonus my daughter has love punching her own snowmen and giving them their own little faces so its a winner all round.

Snowman Stripes Card

I love the colour combination of the Let It Snow Speciality DSP, Real Red, Coastal Caana, Flirty Flamingo, Shaded Spruce, Blueberry Bushell, Basic Black and Whisper White make a fresh modern twist on the traditional red and green Christmas combinations.

Each of these cards features a background in these papers to highlight how yummy they are. I love all the little mittens on the card below.

Snowman Mittens Card

I little colouring with the Stampin’ Blends and a greeting from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and the card is done.

Look out for more snowmen appearing soon.

Champagne Shimmer Snowflake Card

The pictures of today’s project don’t really do it justice as you can’t appreciate the gorgeous shimmer of the Champagne Foil layer and the stamping is done with Champagne Frost Shimmer paint.

Stamping with the Shimmer Paint is easy, just shake your bottle well then pour a little paint out onto a clear block and use  a stamping sponge or a sponge dauber to apply to your stamp and then stamp. The images I’ve gotten haven’t been as crisp as they are with our normal inks but I love the effect they create. I used very detailed stamps on this project, a better result might be gained from more solid images.

The combination of Night of Navy gives these cards a very majestic feel which I think is perfect for Christmas cards.  Have you had a go with stamping with the Shimmer Paint? If not I suggest you do as I love the shimmery effect it creates.
