Ribbon Christmas Tree

Morning Stampers,

I am hosting Christmas this year, so it’s well and truly time for me to start getting organised with thinking about my table decorations. 

Last night, once the kids were in bed, I sat up to make this ribbon Christmas tree!

Ribbon Christmas Tree

I used the ribbons in the 2013-14 In Colours: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple & Midnight Muse.

I cut the ribbon in lengths of 10cm each and used a pin to attach it to a cone.

For the top of the tree, I wasn’t sure how to finish it off, but ended up making a small paper rose and adhering it to the very top of the tree.

What do you think?

Have a wonderful Sunday all, as I am off to make some more Christmas decorations!

Happy Stamping,

Kate

Stippled Blossom Christmas

Hello Stampers,

Today I have for you a Christmas Card but not using the traditional Christmas stamps.

The stamp set in have used here to do the wreath is Stippled Blossom (Clear 126747, Wood 132076).

The centre image is from the Wishing You stamp set (Clear 131751, Wood 131748).

Stippled Blossom is one of my all time favourite Stampin’ Up! stamp sets and I case’d this card from Pinterest, so I can’t take all the credit. I saw it and knew I had to make it straight away!

I have stamped with Baked Brown Sugar Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. To give it a bit of sparkle, I used the Champagne Glimmer card and tied a Linen Thread bow.

It was a very quick and easy card to make.

Happy Stamping,

Kate

Christmas, Gift Ideas

Stamping on Candles

Hello Stampers,

Today I want to share with you a new technique I hadn’t tried before, Stamping on Candles.

Seeing as it is coming up to Christmas and I am madly trying to think of some new ideas for gifts, I thought I would give this a go!

Well, what do you think?

Stamping on Candles

Personally I think this first one worked much better than the second. This is Festive Flurry stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink.

This is Beautifully Baroque stamped with Gold ink, but it is still a lovely effect.

These candles are for display only, I couldn’t bare to burn them!!!!

Happy stamping,

Yesterday’s Craft Class

Hello Stampers,

We had an epic Craft Class yesterday with 4 ladies thoroughly enjoying themselves and we had many many laughs along the way!

Here was the first card that we made ~ a Twisted Easel Tea Light Candle Card.

and don’t fret, the tea light candle is battery operated, so no homes will burn down!!!

The next card we made included a mini calendar and post it note

Then we some spare time at the end and the ladies were having so much fun, they wanted to make another mini calendar card but this time, a smaller one that I created myself. It also folds flat to be able to be mailed!

One of the ladies who attended said “I don’t have a crafty bone in my body” but she was so proud of her achievements and so were the rest of us. So next time I hold a craft class, be sure to come along!

Happy Stamping,

Kate

This is a very simple card to create and takes no time at all. You could churn out all your Christmas Cards in one day with this creation. All you need is the Hexagon Punch and some pretty Designer Series Paper. I have used the Winter Frost DSP for this card and some silver glimmer card.
