Christmas Wreath Card

Image
Featuring: Leaf Punch, Year of Cheer Specialty dsp, Christmas Wreath, 3D ornament, Musical Season, Stampin Up

How about a card and a gift in one!
This card has a detachable Christmas Wreath Ornament you can hang on your tree.
I have used our beautiful Year of Cheer Specialty dsp and a gold embossed greeting on the front.
This will still be an elegant card when the wreath is removed.

The Wreath is made cutting a circular frame from the two largest Stitched Shapes Framelits. I then glued my leaves punched from the Leaf Punch (holiday catalogue) on the circle frame.

To decorate the Wreath I used small flower punch (retired) -but we do have small flower shapes in various Thinlet sets you could use.
small star punch (retired) and snowflakes from Seasonal Layers Thinlets.
Bow from Pretty Pines Thinlets
Pearls and thin gold sequins.

There is a hole punched through the front of the card for the Wreath Ornament thread so it can be easily detached from the card. I used Washi tape to hold it in p…

Swirly Snowflakes

Decided to cut out some more images from the Quilted Christmas designer paper stack.
I felt this design called for a square card.

Once I had done my cutting and gluing I decided to add some swirls and snowflakes from the Swirly Snowflakes thinlits (p.35 Holiday Cat.)
Don't you think they look like 'lace' around the edges? So delicate.

And to finish it off I added one small cut out piece to the very centre of the snowflake with a metallic enamel adhesive star (yes we do sell them p.196 main catalogue).




For the inside I used Star of Light p.122 main catalogue.

and finally a few more photos from our weekend away in Stanthorpe. Giraween National Park.

Clem wants to come back and climb that next time.!
 Can you spot the grey kangaroo? He was big. Close to 2 metres. We didn't stay long.


Have a great day. Thanks for stopping by. Vx

Hearts Come Home Bridge Card

Have you seen the Special Fold card around called "Bridge Cards"?
The name makes sense because you create a 'bridge' between the two ends.
You can fold this card flat as the left side folds in and the right side folds out.

This card can fit in a C6 envelope. I made this card two ways.
This first one I have placed the designer paper over the top of the 'bridge'.


And this second one I have placed the designer paper under the 'bridge'.

Which do you prefer???
I can't decide.


I have used Whisper White Cardstock for the base and Merry Music Specialty Designer paper.
Hearts come Home Stamps and matching Hometown Greetings Thinlits for the layers inbetween.
The Merry Music Specialty Paper even had 'Jingle Bells' so I had to use that piece for my backdrop and stamp Santa flying across…

Vintage Carols of Christmas

Hello there,
I have an interesting card today. A vintage inspired one no less.
Using Garden Green, Real Red cardstock and Quilted Christmas Paper stack.
 I decided to cut the circle out of the front of the card and make a window.
I attached the Christmas Wishes to the front and added a strip of paper to the back (on the inside)


The deer is embossed with Copper embossing powder.
 The scene is created using the Carols of Christmas Stamp set and matching Card Front Builder Thinlit dies.

I inked the holly stamp using my Garden Green and Real Red markers to get a multi coloured image.

Trees are cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer card and Tranquil Tide.

Do you like the little Garden Green "collar frame"?

That is from the Swirly Snowflakes thinlit dies.

We have been out to Stanthorpe last weekend. Ended up staying in a winery that …

Christmas tree ornaments

Featuring: 3D, Christmas ornaments, Green sprigs, mini ornaments, Foil Frenzy Cardstock, mini wreaths

This is a special blog post today.
I have made some cute little Christmas Tree ornaments using the Green sprigs and mini ornaments from the Holiday Catalogue p.12 and just had to share all the details for anyone interested in making some themselves.
Not everything is Stampin'Up.




So this is how I made them.


I started with three of the Green sprigs from page 12 of the Holiday Catalogue and using a Hot Glue Gun I glued them into a wooden disk I found in a craft store. However anything with a large hole like the wooden bead I have in the picture would work for this.



I then placed another green sprig in the centre of the three and glued it in place with hot glue gun.
Now I have a mini tree.
To make a snowy appearance on my tree I used these two products below which I had in my cupboard. I do think the Stampin'Up Embossing Paste with Dazzling Diamonds glitter would also give a simil…
