Merry Christmas

I’m still continuing with a card we created last week at our Play Day.  FullSizeRender (2)

This card was created by Kim who has only just started coming to my Friday volunteer class.  She is doing a fantastic job considering she has never stamped or made cards before.

Again, I took my inspiration from Kim & turned it into a SUO card!  Thanks Kim for your inspiration!

We had a lovely day playing, talking, eating, laughing but most of all, enjoying each others company.  Fingers crossed that we can do it again next year.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Products used to create our card –

Merry Christmas

We have been mixing it up a little at Crafty Creations with Christmas Cards.  I am finding it especially great as I am not getting sick of the cards come the end of the year & am slowly getting my cards done too.

We used a retired set – Ornamental Pines – to create our card & also incorporated a couple of techniques – purely through me letting the ladies know not to bring their Big Shots.  We did Faux Embossing, Faux Tiles & Heat Embossing.

Christmas Cards

Sometime ago we started created our Christmas Cards in my Crafty Creations class.  I thought it would be great to get a head start on them instead of leaving them for the last couple of months.  I think this way, it gives the ladies ideas if they wish to make an early start.

Each created a card in the colour of their choice – Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green, Hello Honey & Blackberry Bliss or Bermuda Bay & Smokey Slate.  We did use some retired products, but this gives me a good excuse to use it up or re-use my favourites.

The Tutorial is for the Bermuda Bay & Smokey Slate, but all you have to do is change it out to the colours you want.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Happy Valentine’s

With Valentine’s Day just round the corner, thought it would be an idea to create a couple of cards, especially since I have a market coming up.  It is a very simple easy card.  In fact, it has been created with my left overs sitting on my desk waiting to be put back where it all belongs.  Sometimes these make the best cards & do seem to come together quickly.  If only this was always the case.

005ee-blogI embossed a piece of Very Vanilla Card with the lovely new Embossing Folder  Happy Heart prior to adhering to Base Card  Very Vanilla.  I cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss Card with the Embosslit – Scalloped Heart of Hearts (Retired), punched a heart from Very Vanilla Card with the Full Heart Punch (Retired), embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder & adhered to the top of the Blackberry Bliss Heart.

I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread into figure 8’s a couple of times, attached to the back with a Glue Dot & adhered to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A piece of Gold Glimmer Paper was punched with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch before a small Blackberry Bliss flower, punched from the Itty BItty Accents Punch Pack was adhered to the centre.

Happy Valentine’s Day” from the Good Greetings Stamp Set, was stamped onto scrap Very Vanilla with Blackberry Bliss, cut into a “Banner” shape & adhere to a piece of Blackberry Bliss Card, which has been cut into a “Banner” shape too.  This was adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish the card, I adhered a small Pearl to the centre of the flower.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’



5 Minute Chrismas Card

I had to create a quick easy Christmas Card while Belle was getting clipped this morning, so I decided to visit Pinterest.  Once I saw this card, I knew that this was the one I had to create as I loved the simple clean look of it.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

To create my card, I adhered strips of “Season of Style” Washi Tape down the RHS of a piece of Whisper White CS prior to embossing with the Decorative Dots EF prior to adhering to Base Card – Whisper White.

I stamped “Merry Christmas” from the Good Beginnings Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of Whisper White CS with Cherry Cobbler Ink, cut a banner shape & adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

If you don’t have Washi Tape, you could easy use strips of DSP.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
