4 quick cards for you!

My cards today are all quite easy to create using the Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″x6″ Designer Papers and the coordinating Gingerbread Dies. Many of the images on the patterned papers can be cut using these dies – how cool is that?!! This makes it quick and easy to create some gorgeous cards this Christmas.

The Black & White Gingham ribbon bows have been coloured using my Dark Real Red Blends Marker. A great way to colour your ribbon to match your design! The sentiment is from the Sweets & Treats stamp set and I thought it was perfect.

I love how the green strip across this card is just a piece of the patterned paper that has this repetitive pattern. The sentiment is die cut using the Word Wishes dies. The Champagne Rhinestone Jewels have been added to 3 of my 4 cards.

These next two cards use some of the gorgeous Be Dazzling Specialty Paper.

This card has a piece of patterned paper cut to the size of the card front. On the right side, I measured to find the centre and then cut into the paper by 40mm. Fold back each corner and glue down to create this pretty fold. The same sentiment as the previous card but with a second die cut of the Be Dazzling paper glue over the top, slightly offset to give that shadowed look.

This card has used a strip of the green patterned paper across the bottom and a strip of the Be Dazzling paper. The Real Red star is die cut and the intricate layer from the Be Dazzling paper.

All four of these cards were made in less than an hour and that was not knowing what design/layout I was doing before I started. But I can now replicate these in no time ready to send out to my family and friends early this year!!!

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

The Christmas Season Bundle will no doubt be a popular bundle this year. With its holly, berries and pinecones, it suits all crafters worldwide. Underneath the Designer Paper on this card, I am using the pre-printed Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Cards and Envelopes again for a quick and easy start to this card.

Christmas Season Bundle, Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper is cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the bottom layer. The holly are stamped in Garden Green ink, the leaves are Pear Pizzazz ink and the berries are Real Red ink. The other leaves are stamped in Versamark ink, Heat & Stick Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool, then Gilded Leafing added and gently rubbed with a sponge dauber to remove the excess. Doesn’t it add a gorgeous touch of elegance?!!

Some Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots were added to finish it off. The sentiment for this card is from the new Peaceful Deer stamp set.

These cards are pre-printed with the brown scallop border and splatters!

I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut the DSP layer. I did have to run one end through a second time with the die to remove one scalloped end so it fit perfectly inside the pre-printed scallop rectangle. Then I used my Paper Snips to fussy cut the images from the patterned Papers and added them with dimensionals to the card. The sentiments and the images stamped on the envelopes are from the new Sweets & Treats stamp set.

Some Basic Rhinestone Jewels were added for bling!

I decorated the inside with another fussy cut image from the papers and another sentiment in the coordiating colour; Old Olive.
