Gold Christmas Bells Card

For todays project I’ve mixed elemtns from the Christmastime Is Here suite with the Bells Are Ringing bundle. This is one bundle which I think has been overlooked by many as the Autumn/Winter catalogue is packed with great things, which is a shame as its a great bundle and one which is very versatile.

Firstly I made the bells by cutting two of the outline dies out of Gold Foil and the cut two of the detailed dies out of Gold Glimmer paper. I used some mulit purpose adhesive sheets from a previous catalogue, to stick the glimmer bells onto the foil if you dont have these then i light touch of the Fine-tip glue would work the same.

I then die cut a bow from the same bundle out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and a label for my greeting in Whisper White from the Wild Rose dies.

I added a strip of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon across the background paper, both from the Christmastime Is Here suite. I added the “Merry Christmas” greeting to the Wild Rose Label and then added the gold bells.  As a finishing touch I added some of my favourite embellishments, the Gold Glimmer Enamels Dots, perhaps a few too many but hey its Christmas!

Silver Tree Card Trio

Yesterday’s card was a simple one layer of stamping, in contrast today I’ve used many techiniques on this little card trio.

Firstly I cut made my 3″ square card blanks and cut the first layers matts in Seaside Spray, Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose to 2 7/8″ sqaures. I then cut three sqaures of Fluid 100 watercolour card to 2 5/8″ squares.

I then coloured a watercolour wash on each watercolour card layer using each of my three colours of ink and an Aqua Painter. I don’t have the reinkers for these three colours so just ran my aqua painter along the inkpad edge to pick up some ink.

While my watercolour washes were drying I stamped three trees from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set onto vellum with Versamark ink. I then heat embossed these with Silver Embossing powder and punched them out using the Pine Tree Punch.

Rococo Rose & Silver Tree Card

For a greeting a stamped Christmas Cheer from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and punched them out with the Classic Label Punch. I adhered the trees to each card using Mine Glue Dots and then used Tear & Tape to attached my greeting labels.

To finish the cards I added some Silver Foil stars punch from the Twinkle Builder Punch.

I love how these turned out and as there small they will work as either Christmas cards or gift tags.

From Our House to Yours Christmas Card

Sometimes I just want to stamp a pretty picture without adding in punches, die cutting and lots of colouring and the From Our House to Yours is the perfect stamp set for scene building stamping.

For the background I did some very light sponging in Pool Party and the stamped the starry night sky with Pool Party ink.

To create the rest of the scene I used another nine ink colours which you can see in the supplies below. I love how this cute little scene has turned out. With the variety of sentiments in this sewt its also possible to make cards for all year round occassions making this a very versatile addition to your collection.

Christmas Stocking Card

This is another one of those cards that is  quick and simple to put together, so perfect for mass production if you’re running out of time to make your cards.

I’ve used one of the sheets from the Night Before Christmas as a background and also as a basis for my colour scheme. I chose to use Cherry Cobbler, Pretty Peacock and So Saffron with a hint of Mossy Meadow.

A strip of the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive Reversable Ribbon adds a little shimmer to the card and the “Merry Christmas” greeting stamped in Mossy Meadow from the Snowman Season stamp set finishes off the card.

Merry Christmoose Card

Have you managed to pick up the Merry Moose bundle yet? Its low stock so many of you must love him as much as I do. I thought I’d give him another outing before he sells out and add in the cute little raccon for company.

I’ve used the Buffalo Check stamp as my background, stamping Cherry Cobbler ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock to give the card a Nordic vibe.

I used some of the Satin Edge Ribbon in Crumb Cake from the Come to Gather suite across the middle of the card. Of course no card would be complete without a greeting and what better one than Merry Christmoose!!

Frosty Penguin Card

How cosy does this cute little fellow look all wrapped up in his scarf, he won’t be bothered by his frosty surroundings created from the Feels Like Frost Specilaity DSP.  I added a little extra frostiness to the card by using a few drops of the Shimmery Crystal Effects.

Frosty Penguin Card - flat

The penguin comes from the Playful Penguins stamp set and after I fussy cut him out I added a little Mango Melody to his feet and and beak. His cosy scarf is stamped in Highland Heather.

The greeting also stamped in Highland Heather comes from the stamp set Greatest Part of Christmas, which is a hostess set from the Autmn/Winter catalogue and only available with Stampin’ Rewards gained from and order over £150.00.
