MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS SLEIGH RIDE!

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.

SLEIGH RIDE DIORAMA CARD!

In a previous post I showed you the swaps I received from last week’s team meeting.  I thought I would show you the project we all made.  Vanessa showed us how to make this.  It is so cute! It is a Diorama card using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and the ‘Jingle All the Way’ stamp set.

This is only small.  I should have take a side view photo perhaps.  It is box-like and inside you have different layers creating the scene. I have used Pool Party and Night of Navy.  I finished it off with a Snowflake Element and some Silver cord.  I can’t share the exact dimensions as Vanessa has used this in a class and it was kind of her to share it with us.   I have found one on Splitcoaststampers Here which is very similar so you can make your own.

Thanks for visiting.

Enjoy your day,

Jenny 🙂

TEAM CHRISTMAS SWAPS!

I thought I would show you the swaps I received from last week’s team meeting.  There are some really cute ones here.  I think Tags were very common 🙂  They are great to use as tags or add them to cards.

Sorry for the lighting.  Sigh! Must do something about this BUT you can get the idea anyway.

Now the cute little penguin card in the back does have a head.  Sorry about the photo.  The penguin is stamped on the inside of the card and a circle window is punched on the front with the hat on the front.  It is so cute.  I love all these ideas. Thank you to all the clever demonstrators in the Inky Fingers Team.  Nice to share ideas.

I will show you my swaps.  Once again – tags! Now that wasn’t the theme but funny how it works out.

I CASED the red one from Pinterest and made up the other in Smoky Slate, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.  These use the ‘Sleigh Ride’ Edgelits.  For the red one I punched out stars from Gold Foil using the Star Border punch.  The Smoky Slate one I have punched out one star in Silver Foil. Then I added some Dazzling Details for a sparkle but you really can’t see that well sorry.

I better get going. Our internet is being switched off soon to transfer it over to the new NBN network.  Hopefully it is not too long offline.  I think my kids are going to die!!!!! 😉

Thanks for visiting.

JINGLE ALL THE WAY FOR CHRISTMAS!

When I received my preorder of Holiday Catalogue goodies a month or 2 ago this was the first card I made.  I went searching on Pinterest for some inspiration.  This card was almost CASED from shawnstamps.com.  I have just discovered his blog.  I like his style.  Take a minute to pop on over and check out his clever creations.

Anyway, back to the card.  I liked the colours he used and the way he used the ‘Sleigh Ride’ Edgelits Dies. I teamed my card with the ‘Jingle All the Way’ set.

I have used Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate.  The card base is Smoky Slate.  I added some Silver Ribbon on my card and stamped some stars from the ‘jingle All the Way’ set in Bermuda Bay in the sky. The greeting was stamped on some scrap white card.  I really should have flagged the end.  I had stuck it down by the time I realised.  I did try and lift it but……. Best to leave it alone I think.  The little embellishment was made with the Festive Flower Punch.  I had just received that punch and was playing around with it.  It was sitting on my desk so I just grabbed it and made it.   Not sure whether it was meant to be a flower or a snowflake.  Anyway,  it filled the spot.  I added a Rhinestone to the centre.  It looks OK.  What do you think???

You can get the stamp set and the Edgelits Dies as a Bundle and save 15%.  Gotta love that!   Wood – $59.50 AUS   Clear – $51.75 AUS.

Here is the stamp set.  It has a quite a few cute little images with 4 greetings.

Have a good week.  I am in the middle of a big project.  I might share it later.

Until next time.

CUTE TEAM SWAPS!!

I have been meaning to share these all week with you.  I received these last week at our Team Meeting.  These are the swaps I received.  Now I will be honest,  I went with no swaps. Life has been a little crazy and it is an optional thing. So that’s OK! Also, I turned up late as we had a last minute drama at home and I nearly didn’t make it at all, but a few people had swaps left over for me so I just have to share them with you.

There are some fantastic cards and 3D here.  Check them out!! I hope you can see them clearly enough.

Some Christmas inspiration there too!!!!

I am glad that I can share them with you and I am so thankful for these generous and clever ladies to share them with me.

Have a great day.

Jenny 🙂
