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.

STARLIGHT EMBOSS RESIST CARD!

This is the 2nd project from my Christmas in July Online event that I thought I would share with you.

This card uses the Emboss Resist Technique.  Heat embossing itself is such a magical technique but add the ink to it and you get a WOW! effect – I think anyway.

Here is the card. I have used the Star of Light Stamp set and the Starlight Thinlits. I have a video below for you to check it out yourself.

Thanks for visiting and checking it out.  Be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel so you get regular updates as I start venturing in to this world.  I would appreciate your feedback too for this Youtube novice. 🙂

HOLLY, JOLLY GREETINGS TAGS!

Just a quick one for me today. I thought I would show you these really quick Christmas tags using the Holly, Jolly Greetings set.

candy-cane-tags

These were inspired by tags I saw on Pinterest.  I think the Whisper White card is cut to 5cm x 12cm (2″ x 4 3/4″) and the top punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. The snowflake is stamped in Crumb Cake with the sentiment stamped in Real Red. There are a number of combinations you could make with these stamps for your sentiments. You can see the set below.

I added some small strips of the Candy Cane DSP with some Red Glimmer Paper. This is a great way to use up some of those small scraps you have lying around. I tied around some Real Red Twine and finished them with Rhinestones.  It wouldn’t take long to whip up a number of these classy tags to dress up your gifts for Christmas.

Here is the set for you to see if you haven’t noticed it.  This is in the Annual Catalogue p 34. ($49.00 W   $35.00 C).

DELICATE ORNAMENTS ON BERRIES AND BOUGHS!

I was playing around with some left-over Stamp A Stack kits the other week.  I just made a quick card up with one of the kits left.  I thought you might like to see it.

P1170418

The card base and the large ornament is in Bermuda Bay. I embossed the white card with the ‘Boughs and Berries’ Embossing Folder. On this card I added another ornament from the ‘Delicate Ornaments’ Thinlets cut from the Silver Foil Sheets to give a little sparkle.  The greeting is from the ‘Wonderland’ stamp set. A little Silver Ribbon finishes it off.

Thanks for visiting today.  I hope you have a wonderful day,

DO YOU WANT TO SEE THE 2015 HOLIDAY CATALOGUE???

It’s September 1st which means ….It’s Spring!!! Well in the Southern Hemisphere it is BUT even more exciting – (can I say that??) – Yes, even more exciting is the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue is live TODAY!!!

You are going to absolutely love this.  There is so much AWESOMENESS!! Now click HERE to go and view it online.  (I will add the link in the sidebar shortly for future reference).

2015_HolidayMini_en-AU

I have been playing with products in this catalogue for a few weeks now.  (Just one of the benefits of being a demonstrator!).  I have posted a few projects recently and I have more to share with you too.  Yesterday I had a quick play and made up this card.  This was inspired from some cards on Pinterest.

Christmas

I have used the new ‘Woodland’Embossing Folder.  Now this is towards the back of the catalogue (p39) and can be overlooked especially by us downunder as we don’t celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving and people tend to stop after the Christmas products; BUT keep going there are some awesome products that you will be able to use anytime.  The stamp set is ‘Jingle All the Way’ (p12) and I love those sweet wooden Snowflake Elements (p23). I have finished it off with an Adhesive Pearl.

So now I am going to stop talking so you can go looking at the catalogue.  If you want to get any of that goodness and don’t have a Demonstrator then let me know.  If you would like a Catalogue sent to you then let me know too.  I know you can read it online but it is so much nicer to have the real thing. 🙂

Happy Reading 🙂

DECEMBER WONDER CHRISTMAS!

I was playing around with a new stamp set last week ‘December Wonder’ from the Holiday Supplement Catalogue.  At first I dismissed the set because it was marked as Project Life – and well I don’t do a lot of Project Life and certainly not Christmas. (Did you think that about the set too???).  Then I had another look at it and thought it is still such a great set for your cardmaking. There are some really great images.  I will show you a few projects over the next few days with the set and you can see what you think.

Here are the cards I first made.

P1140726

These cards were inspired by a card on Pinterest that used ‘Endless Wishes’ but I don’t have that set.  (Yes really!).  I stamped the small and large snowflake on the bottom of Whisper White card. Stamped the greeting from the set and then pierced holes around the card with the Paper Piercer and mat.  I tied around some ribbon, added a snowflake embellishment from the Frosted Sequins Embellishments in the Holiday Catalogue and added a Rhinestone to the centre.  Quick cards that you could reproduce in a hurry.

The colours I used were Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake with the Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon and then for the second one Lost Lagoon and Crumb Cake with Lost Lagoon Satin Ribbon.

Here is the stamp set for you to check out if you haven’t already noticed it in the catalogue. 🙂

Stay tuned for some more exciting projects with this set this week.
