Embellish your Christmas

Hi there, With my project today I set out to create a specialty Christmas card – with lovely layers of embellishments to highlight some of my favourite products from the Current Seasonal Catalogue: the Festive Flurry Stamp Set and Framelits, and the gorgeous Frosted Finishes embellishments. I started with a card base of Bermuda Bay,Continue reading “Embellish your Christmas”

Shimmery Dasher in Coastal Cabana

Something soft and pretty for your Christmas Crafting today…My card base is Coastal Cabana, with a Silver Metallic Mat, and for my angular piece, I’ve taken one of the designs from the Winter Frost DSP 12 x 12 Pack, and after cutting it to a  full sized mat, I’ve slid it into my trimmer onContinue reading “Shimmery Dasher in Coastal Cabana”

Fun Pattern Paper Bows

If you haven’t had a play with the New Stampin’ Up! Bow Die, you are missing out!!! It is so much fun and really easy to use.  You can make two different sized bows or a double bow combining both sizes: I sat one evening and made about 30 bows from scrap leftover DSP andContinue reading “Fun Pattern Paper Bows”

Tradition Meets Modern Christmas

I love the traditional feel of this image from Stampin’ Up!’s Welcome Christmas.  I’ve embossed it with Early Espresso embossing powder and cut it out with the Circle Framelit.  I ran Tom bow glue around the edges and sprinkled Champagne Glitter Glass before setting aside to dry.  I am really into contrasts on cards at theContinue reading “Tradition Meets Modern Christmas”

Christmas Cards the Natural Way

  Hi Girls, Have you ever used this Natural Composition Speciality card stock from SU? It features a divine glossy embossed print in various designs.  I love that Santa’s hat is signing along with the music in the background 🙂 I just had to team this with an old world feel by using Newsprint DSP and CrochetContinue reading “Christmas Cards the Natural Way”

Gold Bauble Christmas

Today’s Christmas Design features a Gold and Red flock bauble, cut using two differently sized circle framelits, with the bauble top punched from the retired tab punch and Champagne Shimmer paper. I love this spotted DSP from the Seasons of Style DSP 12 x 12 pack – and teamed with Real Red, it really pops!Continue reading “Gold Bauble Christmas”

Enviro Christmas Style

Hi Girls, Well this is a very different Christmas look for me – I was recently asked to create an Enviro/Red Christmas design, and the brief included the idea to totally forego a sentiment.  This felt really strange to me, but once I had created this very paired back design, I realised the Christmas TreeContinue reading “Enviro Christmas Style”

Christmas Star and Dry and Heat Embossing

Hi Girls, Have you ever combined dry and heat embossing on one of your cards? Both techniques give quite a different effect and when the same colour is used, it can be very dramatic.  In this case I have dry embossed gold cardstock for my background and heat embossed gold embossing powder using a singleContinue reading “Christmas Star and Dry and Heat Embossing”

Digital Dasher (With a little Embellishment)

    Just like my traditionally stamped cards, when I create a digital design with MDS, I CAN NOT STOP MYSELF from adding multiple layers of card stock! And If I decide I don’t need a layer, I add a border!  My colours here are Old Olive and Riding Hood Red with a hint ofContinue reading “Digital Dasher (With a little Embellishment)”
