Under the Mistletoe this Christmas

Today, I am sharing a Christmas card that is so easy to create. It’s just cutting some strips of the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper and gluing them to the front of the card.

I stamped the sentiments in Shaded Spruce using the Merry Christmas to All stamp set and used the coordinating framelits to cut it out and sponged around the edges, before adding it to the front of the card with dimensionals. I also used the 1/2″ circle punch to take a tiny bit from the centre spine of the card to thread through some red ribbon and tie it in a bow at the front. I added some Sprigs of Mistletoe punched from some of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper pack for some added sparkle!

Dashing Deer meets Delicate Lace for a bright Christmas

Today, I am sharing a Christmas card using the Dashing Deer framelits and the Delicate Lace edgelits with some Designer Series Paper and gold!

I cut and folded my Poppy Parade card base and used the Delicate Lace edgelit along the side. This then helped determine the size and placement of the banners.

The Starburst punch was used to cut some Garden Green card which was the embossed using the Big Shot and the Subtles Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This was added with dimensionals and the Gold Foil reindeer added last.

A 1″ strip of DSP was added to the inside of the card, behind that gorgeous lace border.

Christmas Wreath Punch Art

Today, I am sharing a Christmas wreath card created using the Sprig Punch!

This punch is in the Holiday catalogue and has been super popular, so I’m crossing my fingers it may roll over into the next Annual catalogue.

I have a Thick Whisper White card base with a layer of Garden Green card and some DSP from the Santa’s Workshop DSP pack. I punched about 20 sprigs in Garden Green card and began layering them in a circle shape and building it up until it looked reasonably full.  I added a few Poppy Parade berries using the 1/8″ handheld circle and adhered them with Tombo Multipurpose glue.

The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green on Poppy Parade card and die cut and added with dimensionals. The bow was some of the Tea Room ribbon combo pack from the Annual catalogue. The HAPPY was die cut in Gold Glimmer and added with Tombo glue. Doesn’t it look pretty across the wreath?!!!

Christmas made easy with DSP!

Today, I am sharing a couple of very quick and easy Christmas cards using predominantly Designer Series Paper!

Both of these are using the Santa’s Workshop DSP, a really cute stack of papers and if you look closely, you can see that some of it has flocking on it. The white of that striped background, has a velvety feel to it, as does the apron, and hat trims of those little elves!!!

These cards use Garden Green card bases with layers of Designer paper. Can you believe there is absolutely no stamping on these cards?! The words are die cut using the Merry Christmas Thinlits dies.

Card making does not have to only be for the avid crafter, and I hope by sharing these quick and easy cards, you too can be inspired to create your own cards this Christmas!

Heart of Christmas: Dry Embossed Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I am hosting the 14th Heart of Christmas Blog Hop on behalf of Claire and can you believe it’s less than 6 weeks until Christmas?!

I am using the Big Shot Embossing Mats for tonight’s card to showcase something a little different created with the dies. It was very difficult to photograph the copper foil without getting my reflection in it, so here goes!

Dry Embossed Christmas Card using Stampin Up Dashing Deer & Joyous Noel by Kate Morgan Australia Christmas 2018..JPG

The Copper Foil is run through the Big Shot with the Embossing Mats and the Detailed Deer Thinlits die to get this effect. The die doesn’t cut all the way through, but only leaves the impression. How cool is that?!! It opens up the possibilities you can get from your dies. I rounded the two corners using the Envelope Punch Board.

I added some Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible ribbon and tied it in a bow. It is so luxurious and soft. I added a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl for the eye of the deer.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink and added another strip of the same Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with some of the Joyous Noel Copper Glimmer paper.

Twinkling Christmas Lights

Today I have another card using the Making Christmas Bright Bundle, CASE’d directly from page 6 of the 2018 Holiday catalogue. You may remember seeing my post on Wednesday using this same bundle, you can see it here.

My Real Red card base is embossed in the Big Shot with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A layer of Call Me Clover card is added down the centre.

The Whisper White card is stamped with the sprigs from the Christmas Pines stamp set. Then I added the strings for the lights, however, I forgot to stamp these last week when Andrea was here so I’ve had to improvise and so I used the line stamp from the Balloon Celebrations stamp set! I stamped it in Gray Granite ink, but 2nd generation stamping so it isn’t so dark.

The Christmas lights are stamped in Real Red, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch and Pool Party. The tops are Gray Granite ink on coordinating card stock. Before I added each light with a dimensional, I used a sponge dauber to lightly add some ink for the light’s glow!

Can you see those Pretty Pines die cuts on top of the stamped ones? These just added an extra bit of dimension.

Heart of Christmas: Simply Elegant

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing another card focusing heavily on this stunning Joyous Noel Designer paper and the coordinating Joyous Noel Glimmer.

I was inspired by a card created by Amy Koenders and it really caught my eye. I used the same piece of DSP (because it is my favourite!) but I changed up the top section and the card base.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty stamp set and the Classic Label punch to cut it out.

Here’s the inside using another strip of this DSP, Glimmer strip and another glimmer sprig!

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Garden Green!!!

I think this Designer Paper is so pretty and lifelike, that I didn’t want to cover it up too much and let it be the hero of this card. I did add a strip of Gold Glimmer and a piece of Cherry Cobbler that has the Stitched Labels framelits die (those little crosses) down one side.

Those berries are the basic pearls coloured with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends marker. The spigs have Wink of Stella on them for that gorgeous glimmer and the Starburst punch is embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. The Merry was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.
