Today’s its my final project working with The Little Things stamp set for the Pootler’s Design Team. I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank the awesome Sam Hammond at http://www.pootles.co.uk for organising the design team and giving some of us the chance to be featured on her blog. I’ve had a great time working with this stamp set and can see those little gingerbread men featuring heavily on my Christmas cards this year.

Talking of the cute little gingerbread man he’s making one final appearance this week along with his big brother from Cookie Cutter Christmas.

The card base was made from a piece of Cherry Cobbler 12″ x 12″ card measuring 6″ by 12″ and is scored at 4″, 8″ and 10″. Fold the card to make two mountains. Take two pieces of Whisper White cardstock one measuring 3 7/8″ by 5 7/8″ and one 1 7/8″ by 5 7/8″ and randomly stamp the tiny gingerbread man and the star from The Little Things all over.

Next stamp two gingerbread men from Cookie Cutter Christmas in Crumb Cake and punch out with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch. Also punch two bows in Cherry Cobbler. Adhere the bows to the gingerbread men and cover the buttons with the smallest gold enamel dots from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

For the greeting stamp the Made Extra Special stamp from The Little Things and cut out with the second largest oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits. Cut a corresponding scalloped oval out of Cherry Cobbler.

To finish the card fold both sections flat the run Fast Fuse adhesive along the top of the Scalloped Oval, stick into the centre of the card overlapping the front panel with the in-glued half of the oval. Add the two gingerbread men to each side of the oval on the bottom section with glue just on the bodies. Finish the card with a Gold Enamel star in the centre of the greeting.

Hope you enjoyed my last project featuring The Little Things, next week a different team will take over with a new stamp set so go check them out at http://www.pootles.co.uk

Pootler’s Design Team – The Little Things Week 4

This week the stamp “It’s The Little Things” was inspiring me to make a baby card. Now I don’t have any of the specific baby themed stamp sets in the catalogue so decided to use the teddy bear from Cookie Cutter Christmas. As you can see from my card the initial stamp doesn’t even feature on the end result but that’s just the way crafting ends up sometimes!

I chose to use a colour scheme of Wisteria Wonder, Soft Suede and Powder Pink, just so I could add one of those cute little bows onto the teddy bear, doesn’t he look adorable.

The background was created with the small heart and star stamps, I’m really loving these for creating your own background paper, so very versatile. I also added a strip of the diagonal stripes for somewhere for teddy to sit.

As I mentioned I was going to add the “It’s The Little Things” stamp as a greeting but I just don’t think this card needs a greeting, what do you think?

Anyway, hope you can join me next week for my final project on the Pootler’s Design Team.

Happy Crafting,

Sparkly Nosed Rudolph Card

Today I’m sharing a quick card made with the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle which is proving to be one of my favourite sets from the Autumn/Winter catalogue. How cute does Rudolph look with his shiny nose? Continue reading “Sparkly Nosed Rudolph Card”

Super Quick Santa Card

I love making quick and easy cards, especially at Christmas when we need more than usual. This super quick card just took a few minutes to make and can be easy replicated.

The cute little Santa is made from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and punch simply stamped in the archival black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Markers.  He’s mounted on an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits which are possibly one of my favourite sets of Framelits. The banner was created by using banner from the Bunch of Banners and a greeting from Star of Light which is set I really need to play with more.

The background was a just three strips of the Candy Cane Lane DSP, which is included in this months special paper sale. Buy three packs of DSP and get a fourth pack for free, so its the perfect time to stock up on your favourites.
