Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas card with Softly Falling embossing folder

Cookie Cutter Christmas card with Softly Falling embossing folder

I'm just getting into full Christmas card mode.  Lots of you will have started already I know, but I've found it hard to get started this year.

Anyway, this is one of the first cards I've made this year. I've used the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and accompanying punch for Santa. This is such a useful set, and very cleverly put together so you can punch out all five of the main stamps, including Rudolf, using the punch.

The tree and sentiment are from the Peaceful Pines set that has thankfully carried over from last year and is in the annual catalogue. 

And the Softly Falling embossing folder has also carried over from last year. Hurrah! 

I used blender pens to colour in Santa - you could use Stampin' Write markers, but I found the blender pens worked for me. I stamped and punched Santa on Shimmery White card to make colouring him easier.

Stampin' Up! Number of Years golden anniversary card with gold heat embossing

Stampin' Up! Number of Years golden anniversary card

This is the second card I made recently using the Number of Years stamp set, and Large Numbers Framelits.

As this card is for a 50th - golden - anniversary, I decided to make it very gold. Instead of die cutting the numbers out of gold card, I used white card to cut the numbers so that the gold card showed through.

Then I got out my gold embossing powder and went to town! The sentiment and banners are also from the Number of Years stamp set and Large Numbers Framelits, and the flowers in the corner come from the Bloomin' Love set.

Stampin' Up! Number of Years anniversary card

Stampin' Up! Number of Years 40th anniversary card

I pulled out the oh so useful Number of Years stamp set and Large Numbers Framelits recently and made two cards - watch out for the other one I made in the next post.

I was asked to make a 40th wedding anniversary card and this is what I came up with. As it's a ruby wedding I used some red glimmer paper and real red card and ink for the main colours.

I also used the Duet Banner punch so that I could punch out the Happy sentiment - the Anniversary banner came from the Large Numbers Framelits.

This was such an easy card to make, but very effective, and the people I made if for loved it.

The rhinestones are not Stampin' Up! but I think they just add a nice finishing touch.

I have a 50th anniversary card to show you in the next post so keep watching .... (or better still use the button in the side bar to subscribe to my blog so you never miss one)

Stampin' Up! Merry Mice Christmas card with Cable Knit embossing folder

Stampin' Up! Merry Mice Christmas card with Cable Knit embossing folder

This is the last card featuring the Merry Mice stamp set. For this little chap I've gone back to an Aqua Painter to colour him in. 

I've also used the beautiful Cable Knit embossing folder for the background mat. It really does give such a deep embossed card.

I've kept it simple, just using the Layering Circles framelits to mount the mouse, and some silver foil card behind.

One of the things I like best about this stamp set is that you can use all of the stamps. Usually there are some stamps that I don't use, or use less, but every stamp in this set, including the sentiments, are great.

I hope you've liked this little mini-series featuring Merry Mice, look out for more cards using stamps from the Seasonal catalogue to come!
