Jaded Gold Pines for the Christmas season

The In the Pines Bundle coordinates perfectly with the In Good Taste patterned papers. I also used some of the Just Jade sheets from the 2020-2022 In Color Paper Pack, behind the large tree cutout and also die cut a couple of the smaller trees, as well as a Gold Foil one and Just Jade one.

The layer of Just Jade card is embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder before I brushed the edges with the Versamark inkpad. Some Gold emboss powder is added and heat set. This adds the look of an extra layer, without the bulk of extra card. The sentiment is also Gold Embossed and cut out with the Classic Label Punch.

Die cut the fancy tree (largest) in the centre top of the woodgrain patterned paper and place some of the Just Jade patterned paper behind it. I selected that stripy patterned piece, as it looks a little like a string of lights or tinsel wrapped around the tree.

The Just Jade Ribbon is tied around the woodgrain layer, and in a bow, before it is adhered to the Just Jade card layer. Then add the smaller trees last.

Some Gold Faceted Gems were added to the tops of the trees.

On the inside, I added some leftover strips of card and patterned paper an another small tree.

I can’t believe I am still finishing off my Christmas cards – I normally have them all done, written messages inside and in the mail by 1 December, eek! Have you mailed your Christmas cards yet?

Quick and easy Christmas Pine Tree featuring DSP

Using the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP in the background as well as behind the tree cut out, you can quickly create some elegant Christmas card. The In the Pines bundle and Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set are my must have items for the holiday season.

My colour combo: Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, White

The Lovely Labels Pick a Punch is used to create the fancy ends of my sentiment. The Just Jade layer is embossed with the Subtle 3D TIEF for a bit of texture. A Star Designer Element is added to the top of the tree. We all need a star or an angel there!

I till felt it was missing something, so I added a Just Jade Gingham bow made using the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

On the inside, I added some left over strips and used the Banner Triple Punch on the ends.

Warm and Toasty Christmas meets Curvy Christmas

How cute is this Christmas scene with the stunning Snowflake Spendor paper in the background and snow scene in front created with the new Curvy dies. The sentiment is from the Curvy Christmas stamp set which is part of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle. It is stamped in Pool Party ink, as are the snowflakes. The trees (In the Pines) are stamped in Highland Heather and Pool Party ink.

The bunnies in the sleigh are stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut and added with dimensionals.

How fun is this card?!!!

The colours I will be using in tonight’s projects are:

Balmy Blue Misty Moonlight Old Olive White

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!

In the Pines & Trimming the Town DSP Olive Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

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.
