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.

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.

Christmas Tree Reindeer Card (1)

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.

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.

Three Little Elves Card

How adorable are these cute little Elves, can you just imagine all the mischief they might get up to when we’re not watching. I wanted to go for a non traditional colour scheme so chose Seasside Spray, Mint Macaron and Flirty Flamingo to add to the cute factor.

Stampin’ Blends, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and a little fussy cutting have really brought the little eleves to life.  I didn’t think the card needed much else so added a simple stamped snowflake background and a strip of the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon highlights the sparkle in the glitter.

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.

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.
