FROM OUR HOME TO YOURS – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

 

Christmas is almost here!  I wanted to take a moment to wish you a Very Merry Christmas from our home to yours. 

Thank you for joining with me in this fun stamping journey.  I have loved sharing all my projects with you and I look forward to more sharing in the New Year.

However you spend the day be safe and while under the tree might be full of gifts and treasures I hope you take time to think on the greatest treasure given to us in the gift of Jesus.

Happy Christmas.

FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS CARD

The card above was made for my 12 Weeks of Christmas series but, well… I ran out of weeks to share it. It’s a great opportunity to share it with you now for my Christmas wishes to you.  Made with the Farmhouse Christmas Bundle which is sadly not being carried over, I wanted to show that you can use this set without having to colour it all the time.  I stamped the house a number of times over the Crumb Cake card base.  The paper is from Under The Mistletoe DSP.  You can stamp directly on to the silver Foil but remember to use Stazon.

While this card is very simple I deliberated on it for so long in how to work the sentiment.  Maybe an hour just on that. How many different ways could I work it. Seriously why can’t I just go with it!  It worked out in the end with just a strip of Real Red Satin Ribbon to finish. Which I should have just stuck with in the beginning.  Do you have days like that?? 🙂

Thanks for visiting,

Happy Christmas.

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 8 – PILLOW BOX CHRISTMAS!

Week 8 today for our 12 Weeks of Christmas series.  Are you enjoying these?  I would love to hear what you think.  I hope they are inspiring you. 🙂

Today’s project is a gift box.  The Kraft Pillow Boxes make really quick gift packaging.  They are large enough to add a gift card and even throw in a few chocolates.

For this one I have use the Snow is Glistening Stamp set and the Snowfall Thinlits.  Not much longer to get these products if you want them.

I made a wrap for the Pillow Box using the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.  Then added a strip of Old Olive cardstock around it.  TIP: Assemble the Pillow Box before you adhere the paper so you have the right dimensions with it being expanded.  The larger snowflake is cut with the White Velvet Paper, then a snowflake is stamped in Real Red on to Red card and cut with one of the snowflake Thinlits.  A tiny snowflake is cut from the Copper Foil.  I added a small bow from the Linen Thread. I just realised I edited this photo upside down as the bow doesn’t sit the right way.  Oops! Oh well! That’s OK right. 😉

Simple but very easy to do.  You can dress up any treat with these.

You can grab these Kraft Pillow Boxes in my store now -> HERE.  Unfortunately they are not one of the discounted items for the Extravaganza but they are still great value at $8.75 for 10 boxes.

The Under The Mistletoe DSP is one of the papers at 10% off today and tomorrow for Extravaganza.  Grab your pack at $17.32 in my store -> HERE. I have used this paper a lot this Christmas. Make sure you grab some for your Christmas creating.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Jenny

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 4 – A TAG FOR YOUR WINE!

Today for Week 4 of 12 Weeks of Christmas I have a cute tag for you.  Quite often we might give a bottle of wine to a workmate, a neighbour or to a friend when we visit for dinner.  Why not dress up the bottle and add a tag to it.  These are very quick to make and good to have on hand.  I have been making them for the Craft Fairs I do and they are very popular.

I actually have 2 tags to share with you today that I have made recently.

The first one is on Shaded Spruce card with some of the gorgeous Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.  The deer from the Detailed Deer Thinlits is cut from Copper Foil.

This tag below is used the Farmhouse Christmas bundle.  I stamped the farmhouse in Crumb Cake on to Crumb Cake card and cut that out.  I kept it simple so I didn’t have to colour them in. 🙂  The paper is also from the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. 

Do you want to make them? They are very easy.  Let me tell you.

MAKE YOUR OWN WINE BOTTLE TAG

You can create these any size you like.  I will give you the measurements for these ones.

Metric: Cut your card 7cm x 21cm.  Score at 7cm.    Imperial: Cut your card   3″ x 8 1/2″. Score at 3″.

Use one of the smaller circle dies from the Layering Circle Framelits and cut a circle in the small square section at the top.

Decorate as you desire.  I cut the piece of Designer Series Paper slightly smaller than the lower length of the tag.

I made some of these tags a few years back.  If you want to see these versions then head to this post -> HERE.

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 3 – REINDEER TAG CARD!

Week 3 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas special.  Today’s card was inspired by some tags I made for the special treat bags my guests received at my Holiday Catalogue Launch last month.  I thought they were cute – and very easy to make.  So I thought why not add the tag to create a card.

Firstly, the base card is Real Red and a piece of Garden Green cardstock which had been embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder was adhered to the card base. To create the tag, I cut a strip of paper from the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper and flagged the end. Then cut a vellum scallop circle using the Layering Circle Framelits and cut a deer from Early Espresso card from the Detailed Deer Thinlits.  The deer was raised up with Dimensionals off the Banner shaped strip.  The sentiment is from the Star of Light stamp set and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder before cutting it with one of the dies from the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  If you want to make this card quicker you can simply stamp the sentiment perhaps in Early Espresso ink.

Hope you like this one.  Thanks for stopping by,

WISHING YOU WELL CHRISTMAS!

Yesterday I shared a card using the Wishing You Well set.  When I made that one I made a similar Christmas version.  It shows just how versatile this set is.  The layout is exactly the same as yesterday’s version with just a couple of changes.  Head back to the post to see it if you missed it.

This is the Christmas version.

For this one, the base is Shaded Spruce and the wreath is stamped in Shaded Spruce.  I am really liking this colour lately.  It’s a great green for traditional Christmas cards.  The bow was stamped on scrap white and cut out separately – with scissors – no punches or dies available. 🙂  The bow was raised up with Dimensionals.  The “spots” from Timeless Textures were stamped in Smoky Slate this time.  The strip of paper is from Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper available in the Annual Catalogue.  The sentiment from the Wishing You Well stamp set fits nicely in the Stitched Labels Framelits.  I layered the white stamped and diecut piece on to a Shaded Spruce one.  TIP: to do this diecut a Shaded Spruce one, cut it in half vertically and separate the piece as you layer it under the white one.  I added some Red Rhinestones to finish the card off.

I hope you like this version. Christmas is coming up way too quickly don’t you reckon??  3 months today.

Have a great day,

Jenny

FOLD FLAT CHRISTMAS CARD WITH DETAILED DEER!

Today’s card is one we made at our Team Stamp Day a few weeks back.  I am just getting to show you now.  This card has a few different names but I call it the Fold Flat card.

This is the front view.

Fold Flat _ Front view

This is it side on.  It can fold flat to be able to send it in an envelope.

Fold Front _ side view

With the paper, the check pattern one on the front is from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue.  The “bauble” one is from the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalogue.  The Detailed Deer Thinlits are cut from the Gold Glimmer Paper, Gold Foil and Sparkle Glimmer Paper. The sentiment is from the Flourish Filigree.

I can’t remember now who shared this card for our Shoebox Swap at the Team Stamp Day.  I am not sure where she got the tutorial to make this one but I have made them before and shared the tutorial for it on my blog some time ago.

Fold Flat Card Tutorial in Large and standard size: Head -> HERE.

I hope you like them.  They have been popular on my blog since I orginally posted it so now you have another version.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend,

ANOTHER FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS TRUCK!

Yesterday I shared a card I made with the truck in the Farmhouse Christmas set.  I have another one to show you today.

Yesterday’s truck was coloured with the Watercolor Pencils.  This one I have coloured it with the Stampin’ Write Markers because I didn’t have the Real Red Blends at the time and I wanted it red. I have used the same Designer Series Paper as the previous card which is from the Under The Mistletoe pack and I added a strip of Copper Foil under the stamped piece. A red card mat was embossed with the new Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  It is a lovely folder.  I have to say, when I was assembling the card I accidentally put the adhesive on the front of the embossed piece and so stuck it down with the other side showing.  I don’t think it matters too much but it is different.

The sentiment is from one in the Farmhouse Christmas set and cut with the stitched rectangle in the Farmhouse Framelits. You don’t need to do too much with it but I did add some loops of Copper Thread behind it.

Hope you like this one?  Thanks for visiting.  I hope your weekend is going along great.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS WISHES TRUCK!

Playing with the Farmhouse Christmas set again.

This one is coloured with the Watercolor Pencils and washed over lightly with the Aquapainter.  It was stamped on Shimmer Paper with Stazon. The patterned Paper is from 2 different packs.  The red pattern is from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue and the “check” one is from the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalogue. They work well together though.  The ribbon is from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo. 

I have another one using this set to show you tomorrow.  Stop on by and check it out.

Have a great day,

Jenny
