Christmas Magic Card

This card is the perfect way to add some sparkle to your cards and use up any Christmas paper you might have left. Here I’ve used the bauble pattern from the Night Before Christmas DSP collection, any paper in this pack would work as they’re all festive patterns.

The addition of some Gold Glimmer Paper adds just the right amount of festive sparkle to mkae this card really pop.

Let It Snow-Man Card

I’m sharing another card made with the Let It Snow Suite today, a suite of products which make it easy to make lovely cards. Today I’ve added in some extra glitter with the Real Red Glimmer paper and some of the Real Red Glitter Enamel Dots from the Toile Tidings collections.

I love these snowmen from the Snowman Season stamp set and don’t think much adding, just a little Pumpkin Pie to colour in his nose.

Stocking Christmas Card with Hung with Care

Have you checked out the Hostess sets in the Autumn/Winter catalogue yet, I feel these often get overlooked as they are right at the back of the catalogue. This year we have two lovely offerings, my favourite being Hung With Care which features a collection of gorgeous stockings ready to hang up and wait for Santa to fill with goodies. If you want this set then simply place an order of £150.00 or more and choose this as part of  your Stampin’ Rewards.

I’ve kept today’s card fairly simple so you can see just how cute these little stockings are. I coloured them with our Stampin’ Markers in the colours Merry Merlot, Shaded Spruce and Crumb Cake and then fussy cut them out.

I added a little sparkle to the card with two thin strips of the Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper from the Joyous Noel Suite and guess what…no glitter fell off when making this card!

Christmas Sparkle Coffee Cup Card

When I think of Christmas I immediately think of all things sparkly, Christmas lights, stars, pretty packages so for today’s card I’m adding some extra sparkle to my project with the Gold Glimmer paper. This stuff is fabulous, super duper sparkly and hardly any glitter loss, plus a little bit really gives your project the wow factor.

Once again I’m using the Coffee Café bundle and the Merry Café stamp set for my card, I love how easy a card comes together with these products. I started today’s card with a card base in Cherry Cobbler measuring 14.5cm x 21cm, scored and folded at 10.5cm. I next took a strip of the black coffee cup paper from the Coffee Break DSP measuring 14.5cm x 8cm and stuck this to the card base.

Next I took the Decorative Ribbon Border punch and punched a full 12″ length of Gold Glimmer Paper, I cut this to two strips of 14.5cm and stuck it onto the card front using multipurpose adhesive sponged on the back.

I next stamped and cut out the pieces for the coffee cup and the stitched oval, including a gold glimmer coffee lid for the cup. I glued these two the stitched oval  and finished the card off by adding the gold glimmer edging to the coffee cup wrapper. These gold strips were the offcuts from using the punch and fit the wrapper perfectly and also add some extra sparkle.

I’m yet to decorate the inside of this card but I’m thinking one of the cute little coffee cups with the heart on which are on the black paper will look good in the bottom right corner.

Hooray Card for my 1st Stampin’ Up! Anniversary

Today I celebrate my first full year with Stampin’ Up! , I’ve loved getting back to crafting with these wonderful products and hope to share many more projects with you over the next year. To celebrate my anniversary I made myself this card, ok I haven’t actually sent it to myself but you know what I mean.

Obviously I had to make this card in Mint Macaron as its my favourite colour and I’m so gutter we’ve only got a few weeks left with this gorgeous green. Hopefully I will love the new in colours and find a new favourite among them. If you haven’t already stocked up then now is definitely the time as once that retirements list it will be no more.

I chose to use the Reverse Words stamp set which is one of the second release Sale-A-Bration freebies, I love that its such a big stamp and takes the focal point of the card easily. I also did some stamping with the Painter’s Palette set which is one I haven’t reached for in a long time, I love all the various paint swipes in this set.

To add a little bit of sparkle I cut one of the flowers from the May Flowers Framelits in the stunning Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper, oh how I love this stuff its so so beautiful. Definitely worth making a £45.00 order over the next couple of days to get it free.

Hope you have enjoyed this card and come back again to see what the next year of Stampin Up brings me.
