For my first two cards, I am using only the Designer Paper, no stamping, die cutting or embossing! Two very quick and simple cards using this amazing paper. The designs definitely need little else added to create fantastic Christmas cards. The sentiment is another full sheet of small sentiments and I simply cut the sentiments apart and added then to the card with mini dimensionals. Some of the Blue Adhesive Backed Gems have been used on each of my cards tonight.

This next card uses the Stamparatus to line up the trees for super easy stamping. The top row of trees were stamped 3 times each before moving the plate on the stamparatus across 2 notches and stamping again. The bottom row was stamped once each to get that look of depth. Some of the coordinating dies were used at the bottom for the snow hills. The sentiment was placed on the clear block and because they are photopolymer, they can be curved on the block to go with the curve of the snow.

Have I said how much I love this designer paper?!! The patterns are so beautiful and this card shows off another two of the designs perfectly. The one behind the tree has a diagonal pattern and I thought it was perfect, like the tinsel wrapped around the tree!

This final card tonight is similar to the previous one, although I have placed some Balmy Blue Glimmer paper behind the die cut image and a small strip across the centre. I also used the new embossing folder on the Balmy Blue panel.

  1. Wow!!! Five cards…..you have been busy Kate. I didn’t buy either of these bundle as part of my preorder but you have certainly ‘influenced’ me to add them to my next order. Of your card I think number five is my favourite.The colour combinations is just lovely and I love the hint of sparkle.

  2. I just love your five cards, Kate. That Trimming the Town DSP is so versatile, and I love how you have shown it off on your cards. I think I might have to add the In The Pines bundle to my next order, as I love the trees both stamped and die-cut.

  4. You’ll have your Christmas cards done in no time at this rate! Can I just say, the absolute simplicity of those first two is great, and I’d have never noticed the paper if you hadn’t shared.

  5. Gosh, you’ve been busy!! What a beautiful array of Christmas cards, Kate. Love how you created the first two cards solely from DSP; the designs are just beautiful, aren’t they? I’m really liking the emphasis on blues in this year’s papers, and you’ve used them beautifully.
