Farewell to the Christmastime Is Here Suite

Today is the last day that the products in the Christmastime Is Here Suite are available to purchase so I thought I’d share one last project with you. As most of us will already have our cards made for this year I wanted to share a quick idea using the gorgeous paper as most of the detail.

I’ve used the Holly pattern as a background for this card and simply stamped the Merry Christmas from the Christmas rose stamp set onto the largest label form the Roses dies.

A simple strip of the Poppy Parade Textured Stripe Ribbon across the middle of the card and a couple of springs of Holly stamped from the Christmas gleaming stamp set finish the card.

Below I’ve listed all the links to the products in the Christmastime Is Here Suite, so make the most of your last chance to purchase these items.

Christmastime Is Here Products:

 

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.

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!

Roses & Ribbon Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing another card made with the Christmastime Is Here Suite of products, this time focusing on the paper with the smaller roses. This is a lovely sheet of paper and I wasn’t sure cutting up was the best decision butI wanted those small and roses seperate and I do have three more sheets to use up.

The gold edging on the background comes from one of the dies in the Roses collection, I just added along each edge of my backing paper so there was a little detail which sepreated in from the card base.

For the main part of the card I stamped the Merry Christmas greeting from the Christmas Rose stamp set in Golden Glitz Delicata Ink onto a Stiched Nested Label. Before I adhered this to my card I added a length of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon underneath the label to add some more interest and lift it from the background paper.

I finished the card off by adding my fussy cut roses to two corners of the label and then added a few of the smallest Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

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.
