Christmas

A Rudolf Christmas

Rudolf Christmas #stampinup

Dear Crafters,

Well, it is the last day of November and I have nearly finished creating my Christmas cards. Here is one final card for a very special friend who is going through a lot of challenges in her life and I know this will cheer her up immensely.

Rudolf Christmas #stampinup

Rudolf is made using the following punches:

  • 1/2″ circle punch (nose & feet)
  • 3/4″ circle punch (nose)
  • 2″ x 1-3/8″ oval punch (body)
  • Pansy punch (chest)
  • Owl builder punch (head & eyes)
  • Tree builder punch (antlers & ears)

I used smoky slate, sahara sand, whisper white, cherry cobbler and basic black cardstock.

The Merry Moments DSP Stack banner is cut with the Banner Triple punch, as is the silver glimmer card.

The sentiment is from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set.

Isn’t it just the cutest?!!!!

We made these during our last card class and it was a real hit!

This one uses Calypso Coral and the Pretty Petals DSP Stack.

Mini Tab Calendar 3 #stampinup

The butterfly was stamped in the coordinating ink and cut out with the coordinating dies, Butterflies Thinlits.

And here is another one we made during class using the Owl Builder Punch!

Ready for Convention 2015

Dear Crafters,

I am getting in early today as I am heading to the airport in an hour or so, to travel to the Gold Coast for the Stampin’ Up! Convention!!!! Yay!!! So exciting!!!!

So today, I want to share with you my Convention Swaps. These are card fronts that we, as demonstrators make, to swap with other demonstrators on the first morning of Convention. I have made 52 to take and swap tomorrow morning in various mixed colours. Here are a few of them:

Stampin' Up! Owl Balloon

Sorry they have a bit of reflection, but I seal them into plastic bags so they stay nice and clean and don’t get ruined in my bag travelling.

I have embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock with the Large Polka Dot TIEF. The balloons are die cut from the Balloon Framelits which are still available in the Occasions Catalogue. These are embossed with the Lucky Stars TIEF or Decorative Dots TIEF. The sentiments are stamped from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Owl Balloon  Stampin' Up! Owl Balloon

The owl is made using the Owl Builder Punch and Sahara Sand card stock and coordinating Designer Series Paper. His wings are made using the wings from the Bird Builder Punch. Don’t you love the way I have folded his left wing to hold the twine?!!! So damn cute! The owl is attached to the card with dimensionals.

Papillon Potpourri Pop-up Card

Dear Crafters,

While I wait for my order to arrive with some new goodies from the Occasions catalogue and FREE Sale-a-bration products, I thought I would go back to a favourite of mine, the Papillon Potpourri Stamp set and coordinating Elegant & Bitty Butterfly punches.

I love butterflies and I think you may find that shows in this card! lol

I watched a documentary the other day which showed masses of monarch butterflies and it was just so unbelievable, that I wanted to recreate that image in my head.

Papillon Potpourri

The base layers were embossed with the new Spring Flowers TIEF. The centre pieces are die cut using the Big Shot and the Labels Collection Framelits then pierced with the piercing tool, mat & Festive Paper Piercing Pack.

Now are you ready to see inside? This is my favourite part!!!!

Papillon Potpourri     Papillon Potpourri

I used the Papillon Potpourri stamps with Memento Black ink then punched each one out.

I added them to the centre piece with Tombo Glue and dimensionals!

What do you think? Isn’t it stunning?

Here’s a close up of the butterfly mass.

Papillon Potpourri

I also added a couple of leaf stems from the Owl Builder Punch and some gold glitter butterflies.

Notice that I haven’t even added a sentiment! It simply doesn’t need one, or maybe it is just too busy with butterflies!

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this creation.
