Have an awesomely, wonderful day,
I made this card a couple of months ago now but only just getting around to sharing it with you.
I have used the Santa’s Sleigh set. You tend to forget the Christmas sets in the Annual Catalogue with all the other exciting ones in the Holiday Catalogue.
The tree is inked in Tranquil Tide on Tranquil Tide card and the bear is stamped in Powder Pink on Powder Pink card. They are both cut with the Sleigh Thinlits Dies. Using the Thinlits I cut a Sleigh from the solid die and the ornate die from Gold Foil Sheets. For the gift I heat embossed the stamped image in White Embossing powder and cut that out and the bow is heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.
The sentiment is heat embossed in White Embossing Powder on a strip of black card.
To assemble it all together I layered a piece of the Merry Little Christmas paper onto a black card mat. I wrapped around some Fresh Fig ribbon before adhering it to the Fresh Fig card base. Finishing it off with a bow from Gold ribbon.
Thanks for visiting today. I hope your Christmas preparations are going along well. I have just returned from holidays so I guess I should start thinking about it.
Another different card for you today with the Beachy Little Christmas set.
The tree was coloured with the Watercolor Pencils. I did add some Wink of Stella to the larger shells although it is hard to see here. I added a strip of Red Glimmer Paper under the left edge of the white mat.
The Desiger Series Paper added to the Old Olive card base is from the Merry Little Christmas pack.
A simple, summery Christmas card.

The weather is warming up here and it is Summer this week. I thought it’s time to share some Beachy Little Christmas cards for you that I have been making over the last few weeks.
Here is the first one. I think this is my favourite one.
I heat embossed the shells and the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder on to Thick Whisper White card base. The shell sentiment is from the Beachy Little Christmas set and the “Merry Christmas” is from Star of Light set. The white squares are cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then I cut gold squares from the Layering Squares Framelits.
I wrapped around some Gold Thread before layering it on white card layered on a Gold Foil Sheet mat. I think the gold makes it classy.
Thanks for stopping by,
Christmas is coming! Now is the time to start thinking about gifts for family and friends. Sometimes these gift ideas can be difficult right!! Gift cards are always a great gift and why not dress them up fancy. This Saturday’s class is all about that.

Hope to see you there,
Today’s Blog Hop with ESAD (that is Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators – We are all pretty special though!), is focusing on creating a Fancy Fold or a 3D project using products from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. You would have just come from the very talented Sue’s blog HERE.
I love a Fun Fold card so I was keen to take part in this Blog Hop. Today I have made what I call a ‘LATCH FOLD’. It could be called a Buckle Fold as I have been investigating but there is no slit that the flap tucks in to so I will still call it a Latch Fold. 🙂
I have used the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set found on page 35 of the Holiday Catalogue and my favourite Christmas colour combinations of Island Indigo and Pool Party.
The “Merry Christmas” sentiment is heat embossed in silver to add some sparkle. It was cut with the Layering Circle Framelits and then raised up with Dimensionals on an Island Indigo circle cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then this was raised up on a Silver Foil circle cut with a scallop in the Layering Circle Framelits. Before adhering it to the card I looped around some Silver Thread. The snowflake is from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits cut from Silver Foil too. To make that stand out I punched a circle from Island Indigo with the 3/4″ circle punch.
Here is the inside. I added a strip of Pool Party card which I had embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
Do you want to make one yourself??
Stop by tomorrow I have made another Latch Fold card and I will share the instructions then.
For now you need to get hopping again. This time you are off to the lovely talented Nicole’s blog -> HERE.

I have had a couple of great classes yesterday and today. Lots of fun and chatter and creating. We have a good time at class. If you are local you will just have to come sometime.
These are the cards we made. Creating an Eclipse Christmas card with Carols of Christmas, a sweet one with Brightly Lit and a fun Half-Fold card with Merry Patterns. Everyone loved them. 🙂
I don’t often show the “how-to” of my class cards on my blog but I wanted to show you this one. I have seen a few Half Fold cards on Pinterest lately and wanted to try this card AND as we only have a couple of weeks left for the Merry Patterns I thought it would be good to give this an ink.
So for you to make your own here are the details. Of course, you could substitute any stamps and paper.
CREATING A HALF FOLD CARD
1. Whether you are using the Metric or imperial measurements it doesn’t matter the idea is the same. Take your standard base card (for this one I used Old Olive) and score at the half way mark on the long side. (For metric the base card is 14.8cm x 21cm. Score on the long side at 10.5).
2. On your score line cut down half way. Then cut across on the front of the card base from where you finished your cut on the score line to the edge of the card.
3. The piece that you have cut off becomes your card mat for the front image. Cut a piece of Whisper White just slightly smaller than the card mat. (For metric that measures 10.1cm x 7cm).
4. Cut a piece of Whisper White for the inside of your card just slightly smaller than the inside card base.
5. Stamp and Decorate your card as you like. The Designer Series Paper for this card is from the Merry Little Christmas pack.
I hope this makes sense. Please ask if you are unsure.
PS. Only 2 weeks left to get your Merry Patterns set with qualifying parties/orders of a minimum of $450. Be sure to book your event soon or place your order so you can grab your set.
I have been playing with the Eclipse technique recently. You can see one of them a couple of posts back I made for a colour challenge. This one is a Christmas one using the Christmas Pines stamp set.
The base card is Cherry Cobbler and the card mat is Crumb Cake. The pine leaves are stamped in Garden Green. The Gold Foil bow is cut from the Pretty Pines Thinlits.
Have you tried the Eclipse Technique yet. SO easy but so effective.
Create the Eclipse Technique.
The Eclipse Technique is cutting the words or shapes directly from a stamped card piece and raising them off the card
1. Stamp your card with your chosen images. You can use a piece of Designer Series paper (patterned paper) too as an alternative.
2. For this card I used the Large Letters Framelits to cut the word out of the white card. You can use any dies though to cut other shapes from the stamped white card or paper mat.
3. Adhere the stamped white card mat or patterned paper piece directly on to your Crumb Cake card mat and then adhere both to the Cherry Cobbler card base.
4. Raise each letter up off the card in its place with Dimensionals.
NB: I have seen on some tutorials that the letters were cut several times from white card. Then the cut letter was stacked up and adhered together and then the stamped letter was adhered on top of that stack. I don’t think that is necessary. Raising up the letter with Dimensionals is quite adequate.
Now you can go and create your own Eclipse card.
Thanks for looking today. I hope your day is going OK??
