Going Vintage with the Joyful Holly stamp set

Hello Everyone,

I love this stamp set so much, I’m very sad it will be retiring in January.

So here’s something a little different. All the projects I have created with this set have used traditional red and green colour combinations. This time I’m going for a vintage look!

See how I made my card in my video tutorial….

The Merry Merlot berries were a great addition to this design and the champagne rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch.

The Year End Close out sales starts tomorrow!

Project Share Project Blog Hop – Fancy Fold Card

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to this month’s Project Share Project blog hop.

Links the other Project Share Project Fancy Folds are below, or use the next button at the bottom of this post!

Gez Carpenter: Nigezza Creates

Heather Forgan: Stamp With Nellie

Jill Chapman: Paper Daisy Crafting

This month’s theme really got me thinking….. Many of you will know I’m not one for anything fancy, but nevertheless, I have managed to make this card!

Measurements (inches):

Whisper White Base card 5-7/8 x 6-1/4 scored on long side at 4-1/8

DSP 5-3/4 x 4 and 2 pieces 5-3/4 x 2

Whisper White Inner card 5-3/8 x 7-1/4 scored on long side at 3-5/8

DSP 3 pieces 5-1/4 x 3-1/2

If you are using the Stitched So Sweetly dies to add panels, you will also need to cut 4 pieces of DSP 3-5/8 x 2-1/2

You can see how to make this card in my video tutorial….

I love how the different designer series papers work together!

The inside portion folds out. Leave a panel blank for your own handwritten message!

The little bit of extra stamping around the main greeting adds interest without adding bulk.

Joy to the World

Hello Everyone,

With just three weeks til Christmas, I thought there may be some last minute cards to make, so here’s something that easy to make either as a one off or as a batch….

In the video tutorial I show just one card being made, but the background could be stamped over a full sheet of card stock and trimmed down to make four card fronts.

I wonder which colour combo you like best?

Snowflake Masked Panels

Hello Everyone,

This was definitely one of those projects that turned out way better than I thought it would!

I’ve used some fun pinks and purples for a different look.

Masking off areas of the cardstock keeps them crisp and white without adding additional layers.

See how I made this card in my video tutorial….

Here’s the original card in more traditional winter colours….

So which is your favourite?

Partridge in a Pear Tree

Hello Everyone,

In the Pines

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project has a classic festive feel to it don’t you think?

I used a traditional colour combo of Poppy Parade, Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green to make the card.

See the process in my video tutorial….

The square vellum doily adds interest to the background without distracting from the other design elements.

Super Quick Cards using the Stamparatus tool

Hello Everyone,

Following on from yesterday’s post, here’s another way to make lots of cards fast!

And if there’s one time of year when we need lots of cards, it’s Christmas!

You don’t need a ton of products either… I’ve added some layers to my card sample, but these could be left out.

The Stamparatus is a fantastic tool that will help a beginner stamper get amazing results.

See how in my video tutorial….

I’d love to know if you give this a try and whether you love the Stamparatus as much as I do!

The Project Share Project November Blog Hop – Christmas

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to our first monthly Project Share Project blog hop!

Those of you who follow me regularly will know I take part in a weekly Project Share… So we decided to introduce a blog hop too!

To continue to the next project just click on the next button at the bottom of this post!

I chose to use one of my favourite techniques…. Emboss Resist!

A number of snowflakes from the Snowflake Wishes stam set were stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed.

Pool Party and Pacific Point inks were applied over the top making the images pop!

See how to achieve this look in my video tutorial….

The stacked Stitched So Sweetly die cuts frame the sentiment beautifully… Another favourite of mine!

Here are both cards together! Which do you like best?

I picked Have a Hoot and the coordinating Peek a Hoot dies to work with.

I used the tags die in the set to create these apertures in Crumb Cake cardstock and stamped this with Crumb Cake ink.

This was used to mark a piece of Whisper White, identifying where the owls would be stamped. I used the Stamparatus to position the stamps.

The images were stamped again on a separate sheet for colouring and die cutting.

Pool Party ink was applied to the white cardstock before colouring the tree branches. (No need to colour the owls at this point).

This was adhered behind the Crumb Cake apertures, then onto a piece of Real Red cardstock before adding to a Crumb Cake card base.

The owls were coloured with Stampin’ Blends markers before die cutting. They were adhered to the card with dimensionals.

Finally, Real Red ink was used to stamp a sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The video tutorial for this project will be available tomorrow, do stop by again then!
