Christmas, Stampin' Up!

Pine cones for Christmas

Dear Crafters,

I am officially addicted to the Christmas Pines Bundle! Because today I have another project using this amazing set. I also adore this Designer Series Paper, Presents & Pinecones. You can see two different designs here, but it is actually 1 sheet with each design on either side!!!

and the copper embossing powder is simply stunning, so much better than I was expecting it to be and it works perfectly on these pine cones!

And once again, I have coloured the rhinestones this time, with a red Sharpie pen to create little berries!

Christmas, Stampin' Up!

Add a little copper

Dear Crafters,

Well, what a busy weekend we had, netball grading games, 3 birthday parties, and Father’s Day celebrations… I think I need a holiday. lol

Anyway, let me start with the Holiday catalogue which is now available to everyone. I am showcasing my favourite set again, the Christmas Pines.

Can you see all that copper?!! Not only the sentiment and the pine cone are copper, but check out the washi tape. That is from the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape pack and it coordinates perfectly!

How gorgeous is the copper embossing powder? And those little pearls inside the flowers have been coloured with a Copper Sharpie pen!!!

Pretty Pines for Christmas

Dear Crafters,

Today we have more Christmas Pines and the Pretty Pines thinlits! I love how the Designer Series Paper is the stand out in this card. It is so beautiful and coordinates so well with the die cut pine cones.

These pine cones are showing another of the dies in the set which doesn’t require stamping. It’s the darkest one in Early Espresso card. I’ve also used the branches this time which is a 2 step stamping process. I stamped the Emerald Envy first and then the Mint Macaron, as I found it easier to line up starting with the darker tone!

And the bow is also part of the same set and just finishes the card off nicely, don’t you think?

I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and it says it all for Christmas, Season of Joy!

Are you going to add this bundle to your wish list?

Christmas Pines

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card also uses the Christmas Pines stamp set and the Pretty Pines thinlits which can be purchased as a bundle saving you 10%!

Christmas Pines, Metallic #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 @cardsbykate DIY Handmade Card

I have also used lots of GOLD! Well come on, who doesn’t love gold for Christmas, right?!!

Notice the pine cones are very different to the previous cards I have shared with you. These ones are not stamped, but just die cut and layered. It gives a totally different effect.

Christmas Pines Metallic #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 @cardsbykate DIY Handmade Card

And the bows, well who would have thought to layer 2 bows and add a jingle bell with some twine lol

Christmas Pines, Metallic Tis the Season #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 @cardsbykate DIY Handmade Card

The sentiment was heat embossed with gold embossing powder just to add a bit more gold to the card. I must say, I do love that Petal Burst TIEF as the background. Although it isn’t a Christmas themed folder, it works so well.

What do you think of this Christmas card?

Christmas, Stampin' Up!

Pinecones for Christmas

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another card using the Christmas Pines stamp set and the Pretty Pines thinlits which can be purchased as a bundle!

Christmas Pines, Presents & Pinecones DSP #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 @cardsbykate DIY

I love how this bundle can be used for Christmas cards, but I also think that it can be used for other projects throughout the year, as well as in my scrapbooking pages, so it is also very versatile.

Christmas Pines Presents & Pinecones DSP #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016 @cardsbykate DIY

I wasn’t sure what colours to use for the stamped layers of the pine cones, so this was a bit of an experiment. As you can see, I have done the smaller one on white card, stamped with Crumb Cake then Soft Suede. The middle one is Soft Suede and Early Espresso and the largest pine cone is Soft Suede, then stamped off Early Espresso then a full strength Early Espresso.

Christmas Pines, Presents & Pinecones DSP, #stampinup Holiday Catalogue 2016, @cardsbykate DIY

The Designer Series paper, Presents & Pinecones DSP was used as a layer on the Early Espresso base card. This dark brown card is not a colour I would normally associate with Christmas, but it works so well with this DSP.
