Wishing you well - Christmas cards super quick

Image
Simply changing the colours and sentiment you use can alter a card from being a Birthday one to a Christmas card.
Same design i used the other day but this time i have used 'Cherry Cobbler' and 'Shaded Spruce' colours.
You could make a lot of these in a very short time, perfect for Christmas when you have lots to make.

Traditional style handmade Christmas card

Image
Another card today using the 'Wishing You Well' stamp set, this time to create what i think is a really traditional looking design. 
I love the way the wreaths remind me of Christmas as a child. I used 'Garden Green' ink and 'Cherry Cobbler' for the berries which come from the 'Peaceful Noel' stamp set. 
You could stamp a whole sheet of the wreaths and then cut them down to create numerous cards making then super quick to make. 
The pretty bow and sentiment are also in 'Cherry Cobbler' ink and mounted up on dimensionals.

Wishing You Well - Stampin Up stamp set

Image
If you like to make cards that are totally fuss free then the 'Wishing You Well' stamp is perfect. 
I've used 'Pear Pizzazz' and 'Mint Macaron' inks for this card.
The bow stamp is so pretty and i love the way it gives an impression of depth.

I think these are lovely little note cards.

Dino-rrific Birthday with Stampin Up 'No Bones About It'

Image
Slide Back Saturday - features 'No bones about it' stamp set. My little nephew can't talk yet but he loves doing his dinosaur 'roar' which makes us all laugh so this was in my mind when i created this card.
The two step stamps are layered over each other to create the dinosaur detail using 'Old Olive' stamped off once for the skin of the dinosaur and then just full strength for the bones. 
'Soft Suede' ink for the footprints and 'Tangerine Tango' adds a burst of colour for the sentiment.

All is Bright - red, green and gold

Image
Nothing says Christmas colours more than the traditional red, green and gold. The lovely dsp 'All Is Bright' has some beautiful papers in it but i really love this particular one which looks just like a photograph.
I didn't want to take away from the paper itself too much so kept it simple using a piece of dsp to cover my base card.


The sentiment from the 'Making Christmas Bright' stamp set is stamped in both 'Call Me Clover' and Real red' with the circle and stars around it in 'Crushed Curry'
'Layering Circle framelits' cut out the sentiment and then a larger scalloped circle in 'Gold glimmer paper' to make a mount.
Lastly the 'Sprig Punch' adds some texture to the card popping in the sprigs behind the sentiment. 


Very simple and quick to make.

Peaceful Noel - step it up

Image
On Sunday i showed you how to make this simple card below that just uses a stamp set and inks.

Today as promised i am showing you the same design but 'stepped up', so instead of just the stamp and inks i have added in a punch and framelits too.


I used the 'layering circle' framelits dies to create a mount for the sentiment in gorgeous 'Joyous Noel' copper glimmer paper.  The 'Sprig Punch' cut out in more copper glimmer paper and also 'Shaded Spruce' cardstock are just slotted in behind the circle with the sentiment on. I chose Noel as the sentiment for this card and 'Blackberry Bliss' cardstock for the base card just for variation.

I absolutely love this card, the glimmer paper just makes it that extra special i think.

Peaceful Noel - simply stamp and ink

Image
As demonstrators we like to show you how you can use all the different products Stampin Up has to offer. We also know that not everyone has the pennies to buy everything at once so i wanted to show you how you can create a beautiful card with just a stamp set and inks. No need for framelits, big shot or punches.
'Peaceful Noel' is a really gorgeous stamp set.  I chose 3 inks for this card - 'Sahara Sand', 'Tranquil Tide' and 'Merry Merlot'


A piece of 'Whisper White' card cut to 4.5 x 4.5 inches i then stamped into the centre a 'Sahara Sand' area onto which i then stamped the sentiment in 'Tranquil Tide' Next taking various foliage stamps from the set i roughly stamped them into a circle around the sentiment centre swapping between 'Tranquil Tide' and 'Merry Merlot' inks.


Stamping off onto scrap paper sometimes before adding to the 'Whisper White' to give lighter shades of the same colour adds tone.
