Bright Baubles Simple Inlay Card

I love the inlay technique so as soon as I recieved the Bright Baubles set I knew that exactly what the first card would entail. Using the mulitpurpose adhesive sheets makes this an easy card to make as you simply run the die through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss one time for every colur you want to use.

I cut the main outline of the Bauble out of Shimmery White cardstock and then ran it through again with Mossy Meadow, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight for the star at the top.

I matted some of this Pear Pizzazz pattern from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP onto a layer of Mossy Meadow and on a Poppy Parade cardstock. I added a sentiment from the Bright Baubles onto some Shimmery White cardstock at the bottom of the card. As a final touch I added some of the Red Rhinestones as babules on the tree.

I love how this card turned out and hope to use the other baubles in the set soon and the same techinique soon.

Peaceful Deer Card Duo

Happy October everyone! Where has this year gone? Now its truly Autumn its time to crank up the Christmas crafting so I’m starting off today with a fairly simple design which can be easily replicate, meaning you’ll soon have those Christmas cards made.

I’m using the Peaceful Deer stamp set along with the Deer Builder punch, both can also be bought as a bundle. Using the punch you can stamp out two of the stamped images and its also co-ordinated with the Peaceful Prints DSP from Sale-A-Bration which has now ended.

For this project I used a card base measuring 10.5cm x 21cm as I origianally wanted to fit all nine of Santa’s reindeer on the card, this sadly didn’t work so I’ve made two different cards. One with three reindeer and one with four.

For the background I used Misty Moonlight ink and blended it across the centre of the card. I then took the little star cluster stamp and stamped all over the blended ink.

For the deer I stamped them in Gray Granite ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock and then punched them out. I adhered them on the card with liquid glue.

I stamped Merry Christmas in versamark onto Misty Moonlight cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I then cut into a banner using the Banners Pick A Punch. I cut a second red banner from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP.

To finish off my card I added a red rhinestone to one reindeer on each card so each one has their own Rudolf.

I think I prefer the card with just three reindeer, how about you?

Deck the Halls Card

This is another quick card using the Christmas Gleaming stamp set, unlike my post last week this card doesn’t use the matching punches its just focuses on the Holly stamp.

I used the second largest Stitched Rectangle in Whisper white for my stampinglayer. On this I randomly stamped the holly and berries stamp all over in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. To fill in the gaps I used Real Red ink and the speckle of dots stamp to create a background.

I coloured the leaves with Mossy Meadow and the berries with Real Red Stampin’ Blends.

I used one of the patterns from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP as my background, matted onto a layer of Mossy Meadow cardstock.

My greeting was stamped on the middle circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies, with the corresponding scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies in Mossy Meadow behind it.

This was a quick card to pull together and so perfect if you still have a lot of cards to make.

Happy Crafting
