CHRISTMAS CARD LOVE FOR 2020!

I wanted to share the Christmas cards I have received from lovely family and friends this Christmas. It’s so lovely to be thought of. Whether they are handmade or shop bought it’s so nice.

Since we are all about handmade cards here I thought I would share those ones with you.

I am sure there is some inspiration among them for you.

Hope you enjoyed your Christmas. I’m starting to play with lots of new products which is so fun. I will share soon.

A CURVY THINKING OF YOU CHRISTMAS CARD!

Today’s card I am sharing with you is another one we made at our Curvy Class a few weeks ago. I think this was a popular one too.

The Cherry Cobbler card mat was cut with the Curvy Dies and then embossed with the ‘dotty’ folder in the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders set. It was then adhered to the white card mat.

Before adhering the piece tie around some ribbon at the top. I used the Gold ribbon here. Everyone could choose the ribbon they wanted and it was interesting to see just how different they looked with the different ribbon choices. Some used the Gray Granite ribbon some the sparkly Snowflake Splendor ribbon.

The bow was stamped separately and fussy cut with scissors. It is hard to tell but we also use the Wink Of Stella Pen on it for a little sparkle. Finish the card with a Gold Faceted Gem for sparkle too.

We have one more class for the year next week and then we will be back in January 2021. If you are a Wollongong local come and join in the fun. I will post times soon.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

MERRY CHRISTMAS WITH JOY TO THE WORLD!

Another variation with the Joy To The World Kit. This is a very simple version.

This time I stamped the wreath over a Crumb Cake card base to give that ‘tone-on-tone’ effect. The wreath was also stamped on to white card. The “Merry Christmas” was stamped over the wreath in Cherry Cobbler. This white card piece was matted onto a piece of Just Jade card.

To finish wrap the Cherry Cobbler twine a couple of times around the piece and tie in a bow. Then adhere it to the Crumb Cake card base with Dimensionals. Finish with a Gold Faceted Gem.

It’s great that you can use the beautiful stamp set for other Christmas cards.

Don’t forget to stamp the envelope.

Only a couple of days left to get the Joy To The World Kit. In Australia? You can grab one in my store -> HERE.

Thanks. Have a great weekend,

JOY TO THE WORLD – CREATING LIVE!

On my Facebook Live this week I created with the Joy To The World Kit. Such a gorgeous one. Of course you can make the cards as they are but … isn’t it great to mix them up a bit – and use those stamps more too.

This was the card I made on the Live. I posted the video below too so you can check it out. And also, see some tips in using this gorgeous kit.

I don’t usually stamp the inside of the card but I did for this one.

I will share some more of these cards over the next few days.

TEAM CARD SWAPS!

I shared recently a card I made for our recent Team Card swaps. That was the card shown in last week’s video. Today I thought I would share the swaps I received.

Part of the fun of our stamping events like Onstage is swapping and since we couldn’t all be together this year I thought it would be still fun to hold a swap. Some of my JEN’s INK team joined in. You might like to see the cards.

My card is the Highland Heather card in the bottom left with the Curvy Celebrations bundle. There was quite a mix of Christmas and other occasions. I think these cards are great what do you reckon?? Give them a cheer.

Swaps are just one part of the fun of being in my team. If you would love to join in then come and join us and be part of the Stampin’ Up! family and part of JEN’s INK. (If you are in Australia). I love my lovely team members. I’m so proud of them.

STARRY CURVY CHRISTMAS!

I have been having fun playing with the Curvy Christmas set and the Curvy Dies. As well as the Quite Curvy set as well.

For today’s card I teamed it with the Stitched Stars Dies. How great do they co-ordinate together!!

The soft Suede ink works well with the Copper Foil that I diecut the larger star with. The ornate smaller star is diecut in Cherry Cobbler.

The sentiment is diecut with one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The paper is part of the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper pack.

The Curvy Christmas set and the Classic Christmas paper is only available until the 4th January.

MERRY AND BRIGHT CURVY CHRISTMAS + A VIDEO!

I am loving the gorgeous new Quite Curvy Bundle of products we have available this week. I have been creating lots. Today I wanted to share not one but 2 projects with them.

The layouts are the same but one is a Christmas card and then I created another as a Birthday card just changing it a little. Today’s video will show you how to create them with a few tips on how to use these new products.

Check the video below.

On these cards I have used the new Classic Christmas paper in the Crumb Cake prints. There are some great prints in this pack in Crumb Cake, Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler. I have neglected the Scalloped Lace Trim but it is so soft and adds that elegant touch to your cards.

The Crumb Cake card was embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder to add a little extra texture. The bow and the bird were coloured with Stampin’ Blends.

Are you loving the Curvy Celebrations Bundle of Products? They are available to order now in my store -> HERE.

Happy Curvy Creating.

PLUSH POINSETTIA TEAM CARD FOR WORLD CARDMAKING DAY!

Last weekend you might know was World Cardmaking Day. For a little different challenge/activity for my team I sent them all a card kit containing the same materials. I asked them to create a card with the kit and share it on our team Facebook page. They could stamp, cut, emboss, add to it any way they liked. It’s been interesting to see everyone’s cards all with the same basic materials.

I hope I can share some of them with you soon if they don’t mind. Today I thought I would share you my card I created. Of course I had to create one too. 🙂

Firstly, this is the card kit I sent out. It has a basic card base in Cherry Cobbler and a smaller card mat. The white card is slightly smaller than the card mat. The piece of Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper is slightly smaller than the card base.

This is the card I created.

The holly from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set was coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Be sure to stamp these in Memento ink before you colour with the Blends. Then fussy cut them with scissors. No dies for these.

The card mats were diecut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies. It is hard to tell but I heat embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder. The card was finished with some of the gorgeous Gold Ribbon and a Gold Gilded Gem.

What would you create with these same pieces? If you create one drop me an email and share it with me. I would love to see.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #111 – CHECK THE SWEETEST TIME FOR CHRISTMAS!

Wednesday’s WOW! #111. I wanted to share a sweet bundle with you today – and I mean sweet. It’s the Sweetest Time Bundle. (You can find it on p21 of the Holiday Catalogue)

This is a great one for your Christmas projects with such detailed dies. The Sweetest Time Bundle includes the Sweetest Time stamp set and the Sweetest Borders Dies.

The Sweetest Time stamp set contains some ‘classic’ Christmas images with the holly, the candy cane and the 3 candles. I have to say I don’t normally go for these ‘classic’ style images.

It’s the Sweetest Borders Dies that I particularly wanted to look at today though.

With these dies you diecut the holly border. There are some positive and negative parts to it. The holly creates a great border that you can layer on your projects. By diecutting the border twice in different colours you can use part of the diecut within the negative of the other. You can see it in the sample above. That’s so fun isn’t it? What a great way to add dimension to your Christmas projects.

Check this sample out below. (created by Stampin’ Up! Artists). Let me explain it as I think it is.

CREATE A SPONGED HOLLY BORDER

Add colour to your piece of white card which is the same size as the white card base. This could be by sponging or watercolouring over it, however you like to add the colour. Diecut the holly border from the piece. Adhere the half diecut card to the white card front.

Diecut some holly. I love that you have the scored lines in the holly already. So great. Stamp the other images and the sentiment and diecut them. Adhere them to the front of the card.

Isn’t this a great Bundle? Why not add it to your Wish List.

If you are in Australia and “need” to buy this bundle now to get your Christmas creating on then I would love to help you with your order. Head to my store -> HERE.
