Todays cards use an assortment of embossing folders, dies and a little bit of older Stampin Up christmas paper. When Stampin Up brought out this range of paper a couple of years ago I loved it so much a bought a bit more than I needed, so I have a nice supply of these cute deers, and the little village houses. I have used glitter paper, and they all came together so easily. This is my favourite kind of card making..little scenes…and also shows how easy it is to combine Christmas stash with ordinary embossing folders and dies. I have finished with Christmas card making now, and this week have been playing with some gorgeous Mintay papers for an upcoming project. I am hoping this week to get a bit more crafting done, I have got so many papers still not cut into and i have to start thinking about filling my boxes for the craft fair next year!! Til next time….
I had great fun creating with this collection of papers and matching card fronts from stampin Up ( Santas Workshop)..It was a change from the vintage and traditional papers that I have been working with. There were lots of images to fussy cut so I had fun building layers of the same image for a bit of dimension, and I really only had to add a little ribbon for texture as some of the papers were already embossed and glittered. tomorrow I will show you the other three cards I made before I had to pack up to create classes. I will get back to it though, I am going to be much more organised next year for Christmas – I think I will just keep creating all year ! Til tomorrow….
Todays Christmas cards use all Stampin Up supplies from their seasonal catalogue. I have used the chicken wire, washi tape, ribbon, and stamps ( stamp set is called Joy and Noel, and I coloured with Copic markers) and the corregated pieces behind are embossed with Stampin Ups new corregated embossing folder..this will be a favourite used all year round! It has been a busy week with work, and at home I have moved my craft room so that my second son can move back home for a short while, as he relocates from Sydney back to Adelaide for work. It was an eye opener to move that craft room and realise how much supplies I have gathered over the years. Time to start using all of it! Til tomorrow…..
This is one of my favourite Christmas cards from this years’ makes. All supplies are from Stampin Up except for the bling,and the paper is a retired collection ( from stampin up) but I liked it so much last year I bought more for this years makes.This card and the next 2 I will show over the next couple of days were made for a village class I did a couple of weeks ago. I am back from my short break away to visit my son and his partner in Sydney, We had a lovely time, and the weather was good,my shoulder is still no good so I am now back off to the Dr to see what else he can do for me,I guess the craft room is still a no-go zone. Til tomorrow….
Is it too early for christmas cards? I was over at my sisters craft room a few weeks ago playing with all her new stampin Up products, and I made this card with some scrap cardstock and a couple of dies from the stampin up die sets – Birds and blooms, and Flourish, It wasn’t until I had made it that I thought it might be ok for christmas , I see though that the bling has moved around a bit so will fix that before I add it to the christmas box! And today a photo of a sleepy Luna, she was hanging around when we were taking the card photos!Til tomorrow….
This is the last card for now, that I have to show using my Madison window die ( from poppystamps).The brick wall background is my tim Holtz Bricked wall embossing folder which I inked before running it through the cuttlebug. As with yesterdays card I added a little lace behind the window for curtains, and I used a stampin Up christmas stamp for the view inside the window. The grass is done using the grassland die also from poppystamps.I have been so busy this week, not much crafting happening – I hope to get into my room tomorrow for a little while – I am missing my crafting! Til tomorrow….
