CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS CLASS CARDS!

I have had my Carols of Christmas class this weekend.  I thought I would show you the cards we made.  Everyone loved using this bundle and making these cards.

The first card was one of the cards from my Carols of Christmas week last week.  (If you missed that head back a few posts.  I posted a different card each day with this bundle).

This one is using Fresh Fig and adding a little Copper Foil.  It’s hard to see but I wrapped some Copper Thread around the Fresh Fig card before adhering it to the White card base.  We had a Fig and Gold combination as well which was still nice.

The next card was inspired by one on Pinterest but it took a different direction – as it does sometimes.

The double trees were cut from the White card mat and adhered to the Emerald Envy card mat. You can see the green trees through the cut window. Another tree was cut from a small piece of Emerald Envy and then raised up with Dimensionals.  We added a little sparkle with the Dazzling Diamonds.  You can just run around the edge of the tree with the Fine Tip glue and then sprinkle with the Dazzling Diamonds.  The sentiment is cut with a Circle Stitched Shapes Framelit.  And of course, don’t forget those cute little deers. These are cut from Sahara Sand card.

The last card which I think was the favourite of each class as it was so different is the Square Z-Fold Christmas.  I am loving these Z-Fold cards.

While I have just received my new Christmas paper this one used retired Christmas paper from a few years back.  I still had so much left and really it was the idea of the card.  I never normally use retired products in class but I didn’t have anything else, And yes it’s not an idea to use retired stuff as everyone says “I love it! can I buy it?”  :/

The flowers and leaves were stamped and cut using the Thinlits and adhered off the card with Dimensionals.  Adhesive Pearls were added to the centres.  Don’t you love that frame??

If you want to make your own Square Z-Fold card, then head HERE to a recent post with this card fold. 

There you have the 3 cards we made.  This bundle is SO versatile.  It is endless what you can do with it.  I hope you can grab your bundle and you can get it this month – early!

Here is the bundle if you have missed it.

You can grab it in my store now HERE (Australian residents only) and get started on your Christmas cards.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  See you again soon,

Jenny

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 5!

DAY 5

Today’s project is actually a gift box.  It is always good to have little boxes to fill with chocolates or treats.  This is not a new box for me but I will give you the instructions shortly.

I created the sentiment the same way as I did on the card from yesterday.  You can go back to that post to check it out if you like.  This box was just the right size to add the die cut frame on the top of the box.  The ornaments on the side was added as an afterthought.  It needed something there.  I probably should have thought of that before I assembled the box.  So stamping on this afterwards was a little stressful.  I held a clear block to the back of the panel when I stamped – and held my breath. That is an important stamping requirement you know. 😉  It turned out well not just once but twice.  I was so lucky!!

To make the box:

I designed this box a few years ago now.  You can find the Original post with the instructions in Metric and Imperial on this post HERE. 

Here is the card and the box together to see what a great pair they make. Funky for Christmas do you think?? 🙂

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 4!

DAY 4

Nearly at the end of the week.  Can you believe that?? How have you liked this week showcasing the Carols of Christmas bundle??  So many different looks you can achieve just with the one stamp set and Thinlits.

I have to say this card today is probably my favourite.  It is so funky and fresh.  Totally not your traditional Christmas colours.

It is in Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim.  What do you reckon?? Perhaps I should have had a warning to wear your sunglasses. 🙂

For the sentiment on this one I inked up the top half of the sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist ink by dabbing the inkpad on to the top half of the stamp.  Then I used the Dapper Denim inkpad and dabbed on the ink to the bottom half of the stamp.  Then I stamped it on to a piece of Whisper White card. I love the two-tone effect.  I thought for a little more retro fun I would add an Incolor Bitty Bow.

Tomorrow’s project actually co-ordinates with this one.  Make sure you stop by.

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 3!

 

DAY 3

This card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest using a different Christmas set.  I like the idea of the “negative” cut trees.  Check this out!!! The Designer Series Paper is from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  It’s not even a Christmas paper!  It looks like falling snow though doesn’t it.  🙂  The other trees are cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

The sentiment on this card is from the Holly, Berry Happiness set.  Such a nice sentiment.  It is stamped in Smoky Slate.  Sometimes I like stamping in the grey.  It is just a little softer.

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 2!

DAY 2

This card was actually the first card I made using the Carols of Christmas set. I have to be  honest though I am not too sure of it.  I didn’t want to hit you with this one first.  (you might not come back!!)  Anyway, it’s a different style for me.

I have seen a lot of the loopy ribbon and sequin trim behind a sentiment or image block.  I thought I would try that effect.  This is the retired Gold trim.  I don’t have the current mini sequin trim.  I am really not sure of this look though. What are your thoughts??

The sentiment is Heat Embossed in Gold for a little shine.  I matted it on the Gold paper from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper and added a little colour with the mini ornaments in Tranquil Tide, Real Red, and Dapper Denim.

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS WEEK – DAY 1!

 

DAY 1

My first card for you uses the new Incolor Fresh Fig.  When I first started creating this card I felt the Fresh Fig was a big heavy but adding it to a Thick Whisper White base it lightened it slightly.

The sentiment is layered on to a Copper Foil Sheet mat cut with one of the large Scallop Square Dies from the Layering Square Framelits.  Before I adhered it to the Fresh Fig mat I wrapped around some Copper Thread around the card.  It is just a soft touch. 🙂  I also added some Copper Foil behind the Fresh Fig card at the top to see the Copper through the little cut outs of the moon and stars. 

A tree was cut from the Copper Foil too and raised up with Dimensionals.
