Ever Eden for Christmas cards

I’m loving this combination for Christmas cards.

The Ever Eden Designer Series Paper is just beautiful for Christmas cards, and I have combined it with the Stockings Dies and Encircled in Beauty Dies.

I need to keep this short today, our area is in flood watch and we have had massive amounts of rain which is still going on, and is effecting our internet. So hoping this will post now.

Happy stamping

Stampin’ Up Color and Contour You’re Amazing Card

Another card that features the Color and Contour Bundle today, and just a very short post because it’s been a huge and very full on day!!

I’m loving this stamp set, so versatile and works for quick and easy cards, more complex projects such as this one, and great for colouring as well.

That’s enough from me today, I need to get some sleep! 🛌

Happy Stamping,

Chris

Simple Christmas Tags

I really love the shape of the Elegant Tag punch but I have to admit that it has been sadly neglected, so I pulled it out this morning and used it to make some Christmas tags.

I kept them quite simple but sometimes simple is good!!

The tree is from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set, and the “Merry” is from A Wish For Everything.

I did share my crafting of these Tags this morning on my Facebook page here, where I have been going live most Wed mornings (Sydney time), depending on internet working and no technical hitches.

These are also a great way to use up scraps of cardstock, patterned paper and ribbon. I seem to have a stash of little bits of retired ribbon and twine!!

Happy stamping,

Chris

Designer Series Paper for easy and beautiful cards.

I did a Livestream on my Facebook page this morning, featuring the Whimsy and Wonder Designer Series Paper, to make quick, easy and gorgeous Christmas cards, and to show that you really don’t need to spend a lot of money in order to get going and make some homemade Christmas cards.

These first three cards use exactly the same layout, with different patterns from the same pack of DSP.

I also showed this same layout using a completely different DSP to create a bright and cheerful birthday card, using the Host DSP Pattern Party.

And a couple of different layouts using Whimsy and Wonder DSP.

They were fun to make, and now I have a bigger stash to sell at the markets this week!!

Happy Stamping!

Crafty Boots Butterfly Challenge

The current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is to use a Butterfly on your project.
Anyone else love Butterflies?

I do.  And I certainly love using them on my cards and papercraft projects.
This card was fairly quick and easy to make up, and again, uses some of the gorgeous new Stampin’ Up! products about to be released.
The lovely embossing folder which is framing the sentiment is called Floral Affection, and comes as a set of two folders.  I just happen to love my embossing folders, so they are always top of my wish list!
This card also uses my favourite of the new In Colours, called Sweet Sugarplum, and the butterfly is die cut from the new Playful Palette paper stack.
Happy Stamping!
