MERRY PATTERNS CHRISTMAS CARDS

I hope you are all enjoying the festive period.

I'm back to share some of the Christmas cards that I lovingly crafted for family and friends.

Today’s cards have been made using the Merry Patterns Stamp Set that was available from Stampin' Up! for a limited time, with a qualifying workshop order, during September and October .





Firstly, a card that was very quick and simple. I stamped the deer in Versamark ink and heat embossed with copper embossing powder. Then, I stamped the 'Merry Christmas' around the outside of the Whisper White square, using basic black ink. I mounted this onto a Night of Navy card base, but it would go well on lots of different cardstock colours.




The next card was even easier to make using a simple colour combination of Smoky Slate and Real Red. I got my inspiration for this cards after I saw a card on Pinterest by Helga Hopen. You can see her original card here.



My final card today is made using the branch stamp from the set, which I curved on the clear block slightly and stamped to create a wreath.



This stamp set is no longer available, but if you wish to purchase any of the other items used to make these cards simply click here to go to the Stampin' Up! Store. Be sure to select me as your demonstrator to receive a free thank you gift for shopping with me!

YEAR OF CHEER CHOCOLATE TREE DECORATIONS

Today I want to share with you some gorgeous little decorations I made to hold chocolates for the Christmas tree.



I have used the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue from Stampin' Up! which is no longer available (insert sad face).
I also used Gold and Copper foil sheets, the Bow Builder Punch and the Envelope Punch Board from Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalogue.







Each little box holds two chocolates (one of each of these). They are a sharing treat, I told my children they can only take a chocolate from the tree if they have someone to share the other chocolate with.

SOMETHING NEW

Welcome back! 
I have been busy preparing for the festive season and it has been exhausting!! I needed a little time out of Christmas preparations, so I have been creating items not in the theme of Christmas.



As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I am lucky enough to be able to order early from the up-coming Spring/Summer Catalogue, which will be released in the new year, and the Sale-A-Bration promotion which starts on January 3rd (more details coming soon!). My pre-order arrived and I couldn't wait to try out some of the amazing new products (as well as some of my favourites from the Annual Catalogue).



Firstly, a card that uses the Flying Home Stamp Set. I love these cute little bird houses! The stamped image has been coloured with Stampin' Up!'s NEW Stampin' Blends which are the most amazing alcohol markers, I don't consider myself to be the best at colouring, but these markers make it so easy.



Next, I have a card that uses some of the gorgeous Picture Perfect Party DSP and the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set, which is photopolymer, making it easy to see where you are stamping and allowing you to create a shadow effect.



My next card uses just the Stamps to create this clean and simple card, with a bit of sparkle from Gold Glimmer Paper and Gold Mini Sequin Trim.



I continued with the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set and the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper on this scrapbook page of my daughter's 7th Birthday.



Finally, I have 2 projects to show you using mainly items from the Annual Catalogue.

Firstly, this gorgeous little box that holds a miniature bottle of wine, perfect for a small token gift. This box uses an A4 piece of cardstock and has gusseted sides (at the top) and a tab closure.





And finally, this beautiful canvas that is going to take pride of place in my crafting space. I have used the Embossing Paste (With a few drops of Smoky Slate Ink Refill), Pattern Party Decorative masks and Crafting Forever Stamps from the Annual catalogue, which I again coloured with the NEW Stampin' Blends.



Phew! A whistle stop tour of this week's creativity! Pop back next week when I will share my template for the miniature bottle box with you.

NIGHT IN BETHLEHEM CHRISTMAS CARDS

Welcome back! I have been busy preparing for the festive season and it has been exhausting!!

Over the next few days I will be sharing some of the Christmas cards that I have lovingly crafted for family and friends.I love Christmas and love everything in the Stampin' Up! Autumn/Winter catalogue.


Today's cards have been made using the Night in Bethlehem Bundle #146043 (Wood-mount) #146044 (Clear-mount)



Firstly a card that uses both the stampset and the dies in the bundle. Stampin' Dimensionals really help to give the card some depth and really shows off the die cut elements.




Next I have a card to show you that I mass produced (36 cards to be exact) to give to the children in my class at school. We are a church school, so I felt this stampset would be perfect.



On Whisper White cardstock I sponged the background in Marina Mist, Dapper Denim and Night of Navy. I stamped the stars in Craft ink and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter #133751. Then I stamped the figures in Basic Black ink. Finally I mounted this onto a 3x3 card in Night of Navy, cut to fit the Whisper White 3x3 envelopes in the Autumn/Winter catalogue #145829.


If you wish to purchase any of the items used to make these cards simply click here to go to the Stampin' Up! Store. Be sure to select me as your demonstrator to receive a free thank you gift for shopping with me!

CRAFTY INKLINGS 5TH BLOG HOP


Welcome to The Crafty Inklings 5th Blog Hop.


We are a group of fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from Norfolk, Suffolk and a bit beyond, who regularly get together for team events and to share our love of crafting. We are a small number of participants this month but we still have an exciting blog hop for you. Our theme is 'Deck the Halls', so we are all sharing home d├ęcor projects.

Depending on where you have started from, you may have just joined me from Sandra's blog and enjoyed her amazing creation. 

Today I am sharing with you a beautiful and simple festive decoration. I am showcasing the 'Night in Bethlehem' Bundle (#146044 clear mount / #146043 wood mount), which I think is just gorgeous and makes a perfect festive decoration, with the addition of a battery operated tealight. 




This can also be made as a card, by omitting the bottom piece of card, or you can do as I have and add a fold line in the bottom piece, allowing it to fold and fit into a C6 envelope.


I hope you have enjoyed my tealight decoration. You can continue on 'hopping' by clicking here to go to Jacqui's blog to see her beautiful creations.

Here is a list of all participants (with links):
