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.

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?

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 1 – ALL IS BRIGHT CHRISTMAS!

I am excited!  Today starts a special series on my blog.  Every Friday I will share projects with you for 12 Weeks of Christmas.  Yes, it is getting that close. Eek!

My plan for this series is to bring you reasonably quick cards and projects to help you in your Christmas creating.  So stay tuned for them.

My first project is a very quick card.  How much quicker can it get with the beautiful papers that Stampin’ Up! offer.

Add a piece of the lovely paper on a standard card mat.  This paper is from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue.

The sentiment is from the Farmhouse Christmas set.  Firstly stamped on Whisper White which is cut with one of the circles from the Layering Circles Framelits and then layered on a Scalloped Circle from Gold Foil.  The sentiment is stamped again on Real Red and then cut with one of the framelits from the Farmhouse Framelits.  Before adhering that to the card with Dimensionals I punched out some leaves from Old Olive with the Sprig Punch.   

With one sheet of Designer Series Paper you will be able to get 6 cards.  They won’t take long at all to put together.

Thanks for stopping by.  Remember each Friday to check in with our 12 Weeks of Christmas countdown.  Of course, check in before that as I will be sharing lots of other projects too. 🙂
