Christmas in July

With the weather here in Perth being, wet and windy all weekend it was a good time to stay in doors and have a play in my craft room (not that I need an excuse).  I decided to make some Christmas cards using the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. 

I make Christmas cards each year for work as part of our fundraising efforts for our Cancer Council Relay for Life Team.  Last year I made 224 Christmas Cards and I left it to the last minute, so this year I am getting a head start.

This is my 1st card, I will be sharing a few more during the week.



This card uses the Christmas Pines stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlits.

Happy Birthday To You

Hi everyone, just sharing a quick and easy card with you using the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.


I love this paper pack, but I will admit when I first opened it and saw the sheet with all the logs on it I thought how would I use that paper.  Well I can tell you that it has become my favourite sheet in the paper stack, I get rather frugal when cutting it so that I can get as many cards as possible out of the sheet.

I have used a standard Basic Black card base for my card, a piece of the lighter Wood Textures Designer Series Paper cut at 14.3cm x 10cm, a Basic Black cardstock strip cut at 10.5cm x 2cm with the centre panel being Basic Black cardstock 6cm x 10.3cm and the Log patterned paper cut at 5.5cm x 9.8cm.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla and cut out using the second smallest square Stitched Shape Framelit and layered onto a Basic Black scalloped square cut using the Layering Square Framelits.  The sentiment is from the Best Bunny stamp set.  The finishing touches are a Copper Leaves Trinket and two Silver Faceted Gems which I coloured with the Bronze Stampin' Blend.

My 1st Christmas Card for 2018

I have succumbed and made my 1st Christmas Card for 2018.




Using the 'Under the Mistletoe' Designer Series Paper, 'Labels to Love' stamp set and the 'Everyday Label' punch I put together this quick and easy Christmas Card.  I am making a bunch of these for work with the proceeds going to our Cancer Council Relay for Life Team fundraising efforts

A Tranquil Birthday

I just love the 'Share What You Love' Specialty Designer Series Paper.  My favourite sheet is the one with the Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide colours on one side and the Crumb Cake design on the other.  I always seem to have a favourite sheet in a paper pack and another sheet that I just do not like.  This has not happened with this this paper pack, it is just gorgeous. 

I had a small scrap of the paper left from a project so I fussy cut some of the flowers and a small strip of the Crumb Cake pattern and created this little posy for my card front.  The card base is Tranquil Tide and the Whisper White piece has been put through the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This gives a great texture to the background cardstock piece.


Added a Pearlised Doily, some Basic Black Metallic Thread (this is retired but you could add some Silver), a Heart from the Corrugated Elements and a few sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment to finish.

Happy Birthday!

Do you ever see something in the shops and wonder what you can do with it or how you could decorate it?  I confess I do.   I purchased some mini round tins from K-Mart a while a go but never got around to doing anything with them.  I pulled them out of my stash to see what inspiration came to mind.

Naturally as the tin is round, the Daisy Punch had to figure in how I was going to decorate the mini tin.


I used the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series paper  to decorate the lid and bottom of the tin.  The top of the lid was decorated using a 2 1/2" circle and a Pearlized Doily.  The Gerbera flower was made by punching out 6 daisy flowers and curling the petals with the bone folder and layering them all together.  The centre is a 1/2" black circle, made using the 1/2" circle punch and a Gold Faceted Gem.   The gold leaves were made using Gold Glimmer Paper and the leaf die from the May Flowers Framelits.

A matching card make a perfect gift.

Hope Today Is One Wild Ride

Sharing one of the cards that the ladies made at the recent Junior Diabetes Research Foundation fundraiser.

This card uses the One Wild Ride stamp set.


The background was stamped using Smoky Slate and the Badge image in the set.  This is a great way to make your own designer series paper to match your project.

I love the colours of Red, White and Black together, the little touch of Smoky State contrasts well with these colours.

Friend

Hi everyone, sharing another of the projects from my recent Junior Diabetes Research Foundation fundraiser.



I love the colours of Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Whisper White together.  They create such a fresh look to the finished card.

I have used the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Love What You Do stamp set.  The pearls were coloured with the Dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Write Blend.
