The cutest Reindeer

img_9360-mediumWe are still with Stampin Up designer papers from last year ( home for Christmas). One sheet was covered with the cutest reindeers, and I spent a couple of pleasant evenings cutting them all out!  I cut the paper and cardstock into banners, wrapped some silver twine around the top, and stuck it all onto a card made from stampin up cardstock. The sentiment is stamped with an older stampin up stamp set, with a couple of kaisercraft rhinestones added too! We have a long weekend here, and i have quite a few orders to make as well as some family birthdays to keep me busy as well…Til tomorrow….

stampin Up home for christmas,punches, and dies

IMG_2943 (Medium)The last few posts all have the designer paper in common, Stampin Up Home for Christmas, and this is the last one in this series for now.I have really enjoyed working with this paper as all the sheets were different from each other, with lots of fussy cutting potential, but all matched seamlessly. For todays card I fussy cut a poinsetta, and punched a couple of borders with my martha stewart border punch. I layered some paper, edged with ribbon, and die cut merry christmas with a kaisercraft die. A little cream bow finished. So quick, and easy to make quite a few at a time with this design. Taught another class today, this time over at the retirement village. The ladies are all christmas carded out so today we made some pretty female birthday cards.i am looking forward to spending alittle time in the craft room this evening, i have got some gorgeous vintage prima chrismas paper so I will be surrounded with ink, lace and ribbon. Can’t wait! til tomorrow….

Stampin Up home for christmas continued…

IMG_2947 (Medium)I thought we would continue on with this series ( stampin Up home for Christmas designer paper) for the next day or two, the papers in this range are all so different you would never guess all these cards were made with the same collection. Todays card uses some of the paper as the “wall”, and I put a piece behind the die cut ( memory box die) window. The tree , presents and holly were fussy cut from more sheets from this collection.The cat was stamped from a stamp set from stampin up called festive fireplace and coloured and cut out. I have been making more cards from this collection toady, because I haven’t even scratched the creative surface with this one, but it’s back to work tomorrow, got to love a long weekend though!Til tomorrow….
