Vintage Christmas & Mystery Stamping

G’Day Friends,

Yesterday we did a little bit of Mystery Stamping as we hadn’t done any for some time.

I took the clues from a card I had created a week or so ago & went with it.

The Cardstock is Evening Evergreen while the Ink is Crumb Cake & Cherry Cobbler.

The paper is the lovely Lights Aglow Specialty 6 x 6 from the current Mini Catalogue.

It has been finished off with the Festive Pearls also from the current Mini Catalogue.

As our July Mega PDF Tutorial Bundle is all about the gorgeous Splendid Day Suite, I challenged myself to create a Christmas card with this Collection.  In fact, after doing this one, lots of ideas have popped into my mind so who knows you could be seeing more Christmas cards with this Suite or even mixed with a little of this & a little of that.

I decided to keep my layout fairly simple with a little random stamping with Sahara Sand & Soft Sea Foam Inks.  This layer was then layered onto Sahara Sand & the to a Soft Sea Foam Base Card.

The sentiment is from Inspired Thoughts, stamped wth Sahara Sand Ink before being die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Be Jolly #3

G’Day Friends,

I have another card to share with you today created with the Be Jolly Stamp Set.

In saying that, this will be my last Christmas card for the year!  Can you believe that the “man” himself will visiting all the little kids AND big kids tonight!

A piece of Basic White Cardstock was embossed down the left side with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder.

3 scored lines were scored down the right side of the embossed area prior to being adhered to a Garden Green Base Card.

The tree was stamped onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, coloured & blended with Stampin’ Blends.  I stamped the sentiment direct onto the same Cardstock in Real Red Ink.

A piece of Real Red Cardstock was die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The Basic White piece was then adhered to this piece & then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off, I randomly scattered Clear Rhinestones to the Basic White Panel.

Don’t forget this cute Be Jolly Stamp Set is on the Last Chance Product List & will be retiring very soon.

Be Jolly #2

G’Day Friends,

I have another card to share with you today again created with the fun Be Jolly Stamp Set.

A piece of Real Red Cardstock was layered onto the front of a Basic Black Base Card.

I cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock into 3 random pieces, stamped the 3 images of Santa, coloured with Stampin’ Blends & adhere to a Garden Green panel.

A layer of Basic White Cardstock was embossed with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder prior to adhering the Garden Green panel across the centre with Stampin’ Dimensionals & then to the Base Card.

The sentiment has been stamped onto scrap Basic White in Real Red Ink, trimmed back to size & shape prior to being adhering to the bottom part of the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I completed the card by adhering Red Rhinestones to the centre Basic White panel so that Santa looked like he was doing a little juggling!

Don’t forget this cute Be Jolly Stamp Set is on the Last Chance Product List & will be retiring very soon.

I do hope you have all had a lovely weekend, wherever you may live.  Thank you so much for dropping by today.

Today’s project is one I created sometime ago but have never gotten round to posting or sharing them with you.  It using the cute Be Jolly Stamp Setwhich is on the Last Chance Product List & will be retiring very soon.

In fact I have 5 cards to share with you this week all created with the fun Stamp Set.  I think I may have created them for an Online class but promptly forgot about them so you get to see them instead.

Santa was stamped onto Basic White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, coloured with Real Red, Basic Black & Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos & die cut with the Layering Circles Dies.

A piece of Real Red Cardstock was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder, adhered to a Thick Basic White Base Card & the die cut circle adhered to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the same set, stamped onto scrap Basic White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, chopped back to size & shape before being adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was finished off with Rhinestone Basic Jewels randomly adhered to the card front.

Peaceful Deer

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by today.  It is always very much appreciated.

I’m a little late in posting today but as they ol’ saying goes “Better late than never!”

I thought I would share this simpe & yet elegant Christms Card I quickly created the other day.  A friend wanted some cards to send out in blues but only 2 designs.  You can see the first design here.

A piece of retired Glimmer Paper was adhere down the left side of a piece of Basic White Cardstock before being adhered to a Night of Navy Base Card.

I die cut a tree from the Christms Trees Dies in Night of Navy Cardstock piror to adhering to the middle of the Card Front.

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set, stamped onto Basic White Cardstock in Night of Navy Ink, trimmed back to size & shape before being adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete the card I adhered 3 of the Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to the Card Front.

You couldn’t ask for a more simple & easy card, could you?

Once again, this type of Christmas Card that can be easily recreated for a large number of your friends.

Peaceful Deer

G’Day Friends,

Today’s card is the 2nd one I created from Monday.  You can find all the details by clicking HERE.

Now the 1st card was aimed at the males but this card is for the females AND both created with the 1 small piece of DSP & changing out the Cardstock colours & images.

I’ve still gone with the Peaceful Deer Bundle from the current July-December Mini Catalogue added Merry Merlot & Blusing Bride Cardstock.  I have also rotated it to Portrait.

A square piece of now retired Sale-a-Bration DSP has been randomly chopped into 2 pieces.  The 1st piece has been used on the top card while the 2nd piece is used on today’s card.  As this paper is no longer available, you can always change it to what you have in your stash.

The sentiment has been stamped direct onto a piece of Basic White in Merry Merlot Ink prior to being adhered to a layer of Blushing Bride Cardstock & then to the Merry Merlot Base Card.

The snowflake is from the pack of Wonderful Snowflakes which is in the current Mini Catalogue.  The deer was stamped onto Basic White Cardstock with Crumb Cake Ink, punched with the Deer Builder Punch & adhered over the top of the snowflake with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card was finished off with Elegant Faceted Gems randomly adhered to the card front.
