Vintage Christmas Bells

This vintage style Christmas card features Stampin' Up!'s Seasonal Bells stamp set and co-ordinating Bell Punch.


I created this card using a Real Red card base with a layer of Whisper White card stock.  On a piece of Crumb Cake card stock I sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake ink and stamped the pine branches from the Peace This Christmas stamp set in each corner.  The sentiment was stamped in Real Red ink from the same stamp set.  A strip of Real Red card stock and Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper was added near the top of the card. The bells were stamped in Real Red ink onto Real Red card stock and punched out using the Bell Punch, then layered onto the Candy Cane Lane strip.  A gold bow, some Gold Wink of Stella and pearls coloured gold completes the card.

Father Christmas

Today's card features Stampin' Up!'s Father Christmas stamp set.  This set has a vintage feel to it and I took the time to colour in the Father Christmas image using the now retired Blendabilities alcohol markers.



I started with a Stampin' Up! Garden Green card base and added a layer of the This Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP).   I then used the Holly embossing folder to emboss a strip of Garden Green card stock and layered this over the DSP.  I diecut the scalloped oval in Cherry Cobbler card stock using the Layering Ovals framelits.  I stamped Father Christmas in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and coloured the image before using the Layering Ovals framelits to diecut the image to fit over the scalloped oval frame.  The sentiment is from the Santa's Sleigh stamp set and a little Cherry Cobbler silky taffeta ribbon completes the card.

Starry christmas card

This Christmas card features one of my favourite colour schemes, gold, black & white.



I started with a Stampin' Up! Basic Black card base and layered the gorgeous polka dot Fabulous Foil acetate over the top.  A tip when using this acetate - it has a protective coating on it to protect it in transit, so don't forget to peel it off before adding the acetate to the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and die cut it using the Lots of Labels framelits.  I also die cut a slightly larger label in Gold Foil and layered them together.  The holly leaves were punched using the Holly Berry Punch, painted with a bit of Gold Wink of Stella and added to the sentiment, together with a gold bow.  The star from the Starlight thinlits has inbuilt fold lines and when you fold and score along these lines, it gives the star a 3D effect.  I added a few foam dimensionals under the centre of the star to ensure it kept its shape.

Sunburst 19th birthday card

Birthday cards are needed all year around and I made this card for a special young man in my life.


I started with a Stampin' Up! Whisper White card base and layered it with Night of Navy card stock and the striped paper from the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper pack.  Yes, even with a name like 'Floral Boutique', these double sided papers have many versatile patterns that can be used for both male or female cards and scrapbooking pages too.  I used the Sunburst thinlits die to cut out the Night of Navy sunburst and then embossed it using the Lucky Stars embossing folder.  The sentiment was from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set which can be purchased together with the Sunburst thinlit as a bundle which saves you 10% off the RRP if they were to be purchased separately. I also diecut two circles, one Night of Navy and one Silver Foil using the new Stitches Shapes framelits.  I love the stitched look, particularly around the Silver Foil circle.  I added some metallic thread under the star sentiment and layered it altogether onto the card with two metallic star enamel dots too.  The number '19' was die cut using the retired Little Numbers dies.

Below is a close up of the sentiment cluster which had been layered onto the Silver Foil circle die cut using the new Stitched Shapes framelits.  One of the best things about these new framelits is that you get four sizes of Circle, Oval and Square dies all in the one packet - plenty of variety.
