12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 5 – TIMELESS TIDINGS HOLLY!

I have a relatively simple card for you today for Week 5 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas series. This is using the Timeless Tidings stamp set.

The card mat and stamped piece is actually White.  It does look Very Vanilla in the photo.  Lighting wasn’t great this morning.

The Holly was stamped on Thick Whisper White in Memento ink and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  The piece was cut with one of the squares in the Layering Squares Framelits.  A Gold Foil Scallop square was cut with the scallop in the Layering Squares Framelits.

Of course it needed some loopy, loops of Copper Thread.  I don’t seem to make many cards without it do it. 🙂

The sentiment from the Timeless Tidings set is stamped in black.  The card base is Cherry Cobbler.

I have to say I wasn’t sure of this card and I am still sure.  What do you think?? I think it might be missing something.  Never mind.  I hope it inspires you to create a version of it.  Do share with me if you do.  I love to see what you create.

Here is the Timeless Tidings stamp set.  I love the sentiments on it.

You can find this set in my store now -> HERE.  Clear Mount $35.  Really it is not that expensive for all these lovely images.

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 2 – HOLLY CHRISTMAS!

Week 2 of 12 Weeks of Christmas.   Today I am sharing a card with the Timeless Tidings stamp set.

Today’s card is not exactly quick but if you had a small number of cards to send out I think these would be pretty special.  You could simplify it to make it quicker if you like.  Although you are colouring the leaves they are simple to colour.  I used the Old Olive and the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends.  You could leave off the loopy Gold Threads and if you didn’t want to emboss the Cherry Cobbler strip either that would make it quick.  I had embossed this strip with the Subtle Embossing Folder. But really there isn’t a lot to do on the card.   I hope you like it anyway. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #42 – QUICK CHRISTMAS CARDS WITH TIMELESS TIDINGS KIT!

Last weekend at my World Cardmaking Day class we focused on making easy, quick cards by using Kits.  There are so many lovely Stampin’ Up! kits available.  One of them we focused on was the gorgeous Timeless Tidings kit.  Everyone loved the beautiful watercoloured look to the cards and and they were very easy to put together.  If you haven’t noticed them they are on page 33 of the Holiday Catalogue or you can see them below.

For Wednesday’s WOW #42 I thought we would have a close look at this kit. I have the video below to see them and you can see how easy it is to put them together.

What do you think?  Aren’t they gorgeous?  The fun thing with kits too is that you don’t have to make them exactly as they are.  You can change them around little.  Just a note on them,  we found that when we peeled off some of the gold strips and trim not all of them came out clean so you need to use a paper piercer or similar to pick out the little “bits” left behind.  That is probably the longest part to putting the cards together.

**Grab your Timeless Tidings Kit in my store now -> HERE  $35 AUS.  (Australian residents only).  Please use the Host Code: SGXSEFMS
