Stampin' Up! Embellished Ornaments meets Home for Christmas

Stampin' Up! Embellished Ornaments meets Home for Christmas DSP

Sometimes you need to make a lot of cards, and Christmas is one of those times. I need to make a lot of cards both for friends and family, and for upcoming Christmas Fairs.

So, I've made sets of cards, and this is one of those sets. I made 10 of these cards in about an hour so they don't take long to make.

I've used the wonderful bauble DSP from the Home for Christmas stack, and used the sentiment from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set.

Behind the sentiment I put a larger silver glimmer paper circle. And I've sponged the edges of the DSP and the sentiment to soften the edges slightly.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Pines heat embossed Christmas cards

Stampin' Up Peaceful Pines Christmas card heat embossed

Today's card is clean and simple, but has several elements to it. I've just used white and gold which makes for an elegant card.

The tree, and sentiment are from the Peaceful Pines stamp set. I've heat embossed them in gold. Behind them I've put some gold glimmer paper, which is on top of a card that I've embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.

I made one on red card too to see how different it would make the card look.

I like them both, but I think I prefer the totally white one best. I've used the Perfect Pines framelits to die cut the tree. You can buy the framelits and Peaceful Pines stamp set as a bundle with 15% off which is a great deal.

Don't forget too that today (20th November) is the last day for the 20% discount on certain stamp sets.

Stampin' Up! Barnyard Babies card - hogs and kisses

Stampin' Up! Barnyard Babies, hogs and kisses

Isn't this card just so cute! I love the sentiment - Hogs and Kisses. The little piggy stamp, and sentiment are from the Barnyard Babies stamp set. 

I got the idea for this card on Pinterest, but I can't give a link because when I click on the photo it goes nowhere. All I know is the lady is called Rachel, so thanks to Rachel for the idea.

As you can see I stamped piggies in Smoky Slate, Tip Top Taupe, and Sahara Sand for the background, then Memento black ink to stamp again for the main piggy that I coloured in.

I think this will be a very useful card for birthdays. In fact I've sent one already.

If you'd like to see the current Stampin' Up! catalogue with this stamp set in, and you live in France, the UK, the Netherlands, Austria or Germany, please contact me, or click on the link in the sidebar to see it online.

Back to Christmas cards next time :)

Stampin' Up! Delicate Ornaments Christmas cards

Stampin' Up! Delicate Ornaments Christmas cards

I have a trio of cards for you today. All the same but different! I've used the Embellished Ornaments stamp set, and Delicate Ornaments dies to create these cards. 

You can buy the two together in a bundle and save yourself 15%. You need a Big Shot or similar die cutting machine for the dies, and they can be a little tricky because they are so intricate, but I love the end result.

I've kept the colour palette fairly simple - gold, silver, black and green, with a tiny bit of red for the holly berries.

The holly is also from the Embellished Ornaments  stamp set.

I've made quite a few Christmas cards now, but I still have more to make. I hope you are all making lots too!

Upcoming Christmas Fairs I'll be at - the AIKB Christmas Fair, this year in Gouarec at the Salle Bel Air on Sunday 6th December from 11.00am.

And the Les Puces Christmas Fair at Poullaouen Salle Polyvalente on Saturday 19th December - hope to see you there.
