I have a quick & easy Christmas Card for you today in non-traditional colours. Mind you when looking at it, you could easily change it out to whatever you wanted. I actually took my inspiration from a card I shared a couple of weeks ago.
I embossed a piece of Whisper White CS with the Holly Textured EF before layering onto a piece of Pink Pirouette CS.
I die cut a piece of Whisper White CS using the using the Layered Circles Framelits (love these), stamped the leaf from the Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. “Merry Christmas” from the Teeny Tiny Stamp Set has been stamped in Smokey Slate Ink.
I then layered the stamped circle onto a piece of Smokey Slate CS which had been cut using the Scallop Circe from the Layered Circles Framelits & then adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I coloured a couple of Pearls with a permanent marker before adhering to the berries. To complete my card, I tied a small bow from a piece of Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine (Retired) & adhered it to the stem with a Mini Glue Dot.
As I said, a quick & easy card but one, I think is sweet.
I didn’t make it last Wednesday, a couple of things happened & it sort of went to the back burner, so today we’re back!
My card today has been created with retired Washi Tape, but you could always replace it with the lovely “Candy Lane” Page 5, “Warmth & Cheer“, Page 13, or the “Presents & Pinecones“, Page 20 of the 2016 Holiday Catalogue.
I created a simple Christmas Card, although it sure didn’t start out that way. Once I had decided on the Tape, I knew I wanted to keep it simple & let the Tape speak for itself. Sometimes it is best to keep things simple.

Our 2nd card last Sunday was still playing with the new “Hearth & Home” Thinlits, but used in a different way. So many ideas, so little time. The ladies loved this card & thought it very different to the first one we created.
We played with our Heat & Stick Powder, along with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter by using it on our sky to create little, tiny sparkling stars. Not sure if you are able to see the shine, but when the card moves certain ways, it lights up. We also randomly scattered small Rhinestones around the card, just to give it a little more shine.
This class is going to be repeated in November, so be sure to check out the Classes/Workshops for dates & times.
Today’s card is our 2nd card we created last Sunday. I am loving this card & thankfully the ladies did too. They especially loved how you can use your ornaments to create an entirely different card.
Again we used the Delicate Ornament & Embellished Ornaments Bundle. While creating this card, I suddenly realised that there was a small flower in the middle of one of the Ornaments – thank you Stampin’ Up!. We stamped the image a couple of times in Real Red for the flowers & again in Old Olive for the leaves before fussy cutting the images & layering on top of each other. I love to use my stamps different ways & love to show the ladies the same.
We actually coloured the Rhinestones with a Yellow Permanent Marker.
We played with the Delicate Ornament Dies & Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set Bundle last Sunday in our Technique Class. The ladies absolutely loved the cards. I am in 2 minds about these cards that I am showing you today. As I created a silver & gold card – couldn’t decide which I liked better, I let them choose the colour they preferred.
The cards were basically cased from the HolidayCatalogue, Page 14 but with my own touches added to them. In fact, most of our products used to create our cards are from the Catalogue.
Be sure to pop back in a couple of days & I’ll show you our 2nd card from the same class.
Today is the day the gorgeous new Holiday Catalogue goes live. Not only is it filled with Christmas product to die for but fantastic ideas as well.
I will admit my pre-order sat in a corner (in the box) for a week or so, as I just haven’t had the time to play). Does this happen to anyone else?
My post is one I created a couple if days ago which I have cased from Page 14 using the lovely new “Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies”, Page 15 & the lovely “Home for Christmas” DSP, Page 9 & the oh so lovely “Softly Falling” TIEF, Page 24. I also used the new “Precision Base Plate” to cut my Dies plus a couple of other goodies.
Along with the “Precision Base Plate“, the other “must have” item from this Catalogue is the “Fine-Tip Glue Pen” – Page 43. If you only purchase 2 items, then be sure it is these 2 items – they will make your life so much easier. Thank you SU!
