Christmas, Stampin' Up!

TEAM CHRISTMAS CARD SWAPS!

Ok, I know Christmas is done with for another year but I have one more post to share with you.  Recently I had a Team Card Swap for my JEN’s INK team.  I thought I would share them all with you because I love each and everyone of my team members and I love that they got involved.  I will say that some were very nervous to take part.  So I am proud of them.

It was a Christmas theme.  It was a small group involved for this one because this time of year gets a bit crazy.  But give them all a cheer.  They all did well.

My card was the top left one with the Making Christmas Bright set.  I was inspired by a card on Pinterest. Now I can’t find who it was by.  I hadn’t Pinned it.  Oops!  I liked the idea of stamping it on Crumb Cake. I thought I had a single photos of it but I can’t find it now.  Crazy times forgetting everything. 🙂

Happy New Year to you all. 

I am excited to continue to create and share projects with you.  Thank you for following me along. I hope you continue this fun journey with me in to 2019.

HUNG WITH CARE STOCKING CARDS – AND A WINNER!

I think this stamp set hasn’t had much airing around the blogosphere.  That’s a bit sad.  It is a cute one. Hung With Care is a Host set found in the Holiday Catalogue.  I must say I haven’t used it near enough.  Today I thought it should have it’s turn in the limelight.

This first one uses the lovely All is Bright Designer Series Paper. You don’t need too much on the card when you use this paper.  The stocking is stamped in Garden Green.  For the sentiment I heat embossed that in white on black card and then punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.

This card was one from one of my Christmas Stamp A Stack Classes recently. The stocking was stamped in Garden Green and the white oval card was layered on to Silver Glimmer Paper. The Garden Green card mat was embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  The Real Red Twine is retired.  I don’t usually use retired products in classes but I ran out of the thin Red Ribbon.  Adding a small strip of Under The Mistletoe DSP adds a little contrast to it.  Everyone did like making this card I think.  It’s nice when you can make up 3 of these cards in class in a hurry and they are ready to go.

BLING WINNER

A few posts ago I posted a little giveaway for reaching 50 Wednesday’s WOW!  Today I can announce the winner of the Bling Pack.

Congratulations Joy Stewart.  I will drop you an email shortly to arrange them to be sent to you.

Thanks for stopping by,

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 11 – ALL IS BRIGHT!

I know I have featured the All is Bright Designer Series Paper a lot recently for my 12 Weeks of Christmas.  But hey! it’s a fun, festive paper and so easy to make cards with and that is what 12 Weeks of Christmas is all about.

Here we have Week 11 of our 12 Week of Christmas series.

The card base is Garden Green. The red card mat was embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. The piece of All is Bright Designer Series paper which is about 7.5cm wide (3″) was cut to a banner ends with scissors.  The circle wreath from the Making Christmas Bright was stamped in Garden Green.  The sentiment was stamped in black and the Bright was stamped in Real Red.  I added some Red Rhinestones for dress up the wreath.  This circle wreath was adhered on to a scallop circle in Gold Foil cut with the Layering Circles Framelits.  Before adhering this piece to the card I added some Red Satin Ribbon hanging from behind it.  

I love the brightness of this card and the festive feel to it.  Very traditionally red and green Christmas don’t you think?

So next Friday is our last project for our 12 Weeks of Christmas.  That’s crazy! That means it’s almost Christmas.  I don’t know about you but I am totally not ready.  How about you?

STAR BORDER WITH MAKING CHRISTMAS BRIGHT!

Another card for you with the Making Christmas Bright Bundle.  This one I wanted to use the star strip that is in the set.

I stamped the star strip several times and across the card and stamped 3 rows of the star strip.  It took some time lining them up.  I did try using the Stamparatus but it wasn’t lining up properly so I just stamped it by “eye”. I held my breath and just stamped.  That’s how it is done didn’t you know. 😉 I coloured the stars with the markers using Real Red, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  The colours are really bright.  It is actually Real Red.  Something happened in the editing. 🙂

The string was stamped across the corner for the 3 bulbs to run along it.  The bulbs were punched out with the Bulb Builder Punch. and raised up with Dimensionals.

This card was inspired by Sara’s card -> HERE.

Are you liking this bundle yet?  Lots you can do with it.  Are you liking that you can get it as a bundle now and save 10%? From January it will be individual prices so I would get it now if I was  you. 🙂 Grab it in store -> HERE. It is $61 AUS for the bundle now.

Thanks for stopping by with me.  I have another card with this Bundle to share with you tomorrow for our 11th Week of 12 Weeks of Christmas series so be sure to stop on by.

MAKING CHRISTMAS BRIGHT CATALOGUE INSPIRED!

I have a few cards to share with you using the Making Christmas Bright Bundle in the Holiday Catalogue.  You can see this bundle on page 6 and 7 of the Holiday Catalogue.

For this card I was inspired by the card on page 7.

For my sentiment I stamped it on Whisper White card and then cut it with a square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I cut a red one from one of the squares from the Layering Squares Framelits.

The base is Call Me Clover and I stamped the light string and the bulbs a number of times over the card.  An individual “bulb” was stamped on scrap white and punched with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.  The “top” part of the bulb was punched out in Pineapple Punch card.

It’s a fun set and great to have a punch to cut those little bulbs.

Here is the bundle.

This Bundle is being carried over but if you buy it now you will get it at 10% off.  After this month it will be available individually and who wants to pay more then!

Grab it in store now -> HERE.  Please use the HOST CODE: BZ6KB7SU

I have some more cards with this set so stop on by again soon.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #43 – ONE STAMP, ONE DIE = 16 TAGS!

How can you make 16 tags from One Stamp and One Die?? I have to say this intrigued me.  For Wednesday’s WOW! #43 this week I wanted to check out this Tags and Tidings Bundle and see how it worked.  I found the video from Stampin’ Up! to share with you.  Maybe you are intrigued by it yourself??  The stamps are very small so how can you use them on your projects? How can you line the stamps up so easily with the die so they cut?  So many questions.  So if you are the same check out the video below and don’t miss out on the end to see their cute projects.

Here are some of the Stampin’ Up! projects.  So these might be small but they are cute.  I like even how the background is stamped on the card with them.  I had considered cutting the stamps up as I thought it might be easier. (SHAME ON ME).  I think I will leave it as one stamp.  Much easier to use and great for that background.

What do you think now?  Have you got this bundle? I would love to see your projects with it.

You can see it in my store -> HERE now.  $71 for the bundle.

Thanks for checking this out with me today.  Have a wonderful Wednesday.

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 3 – REINDEER TAG CARD!

Week 3 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas special.  Today’s card was inspired by some tags I made for the special treat bags my guests received at my Holiday Catalogue Launch last month.  I thought they were cute – and very easy to make.  So I thought why not add the tag to create a card.

Firstly, the base card is Real Red and a piece of Garden Green cardstock which had been embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder was adhered to the card base. To create the tag, I cut a strip of paper from the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper and flagged the end. Then cut a vellum scallop circle using the Layering Circle Framelits and cut a deer from Early Espresso card from the Detailed Deer Thinlits.  The deer was raised up with Dimensionals off the Banner shaped strip.  The sentiment is from the Star of Light stamp set and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder before cutting it with one of the dies from the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  If you want to make this card quicker you can simply stamp the sentiment perhaps in Early Espresso ink.

Hope you like this one.  Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny

FESTIVE FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS CARD!

A couple of weeks ago for my Week 1 of 12 Weeks of Christmas I showed how quickly your Christmas cards can be made using the lovely Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!. (Head back a few posts if you missed it).

Today I have another Christmas card for you using Designer Series Paper.  This one uses the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.

The sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas set is stamped in Old Olive on Granny Apple Green and cut with one of the Layering Circles Framelits.  It was stamped again in Real Red on white and cut with the Stitched sentiment label die in the Farmhouse Framelits dies.  Before they were raised up off the card I added a couple of leaves punched from the Sprig Punch from Real Red and vellum.  I finished the sentiment off with a double bow from Linen Thread.  The base card is Old Olive and the Real Red.  I have to say the colour in the paper is actually Cherry Cobbler but it worked with red.  I don’t know why I used that but I think because I was making the other card that I had shared at the same time and just used the same colours.  I have to say you don’t notice it though.

So there is another quick Christmas card for your collection.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny
