One more time …

Inspired by Pinterest, I couldn’t resist using some retiring items one more time …

You can see the original card by Danielle here.  Christmas is the perfect time to bling it up a bit, so I finished off with a sprinkling of adhesive rhinestones.

Here’s what you need to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up! –

cardstock: naturals ivory; stamp sets: contempo Christmas, baroque motifs; ink: lucky limeade, early espresso; accessories: holly berry bouquet dsp, corner rounder, adhesive rhinestones.

Wirral card making – Christmas stamp-a-stacks …

I met up with some friends in Wirral for a little crafting session this week. As it’s now less than 17 weeks to Christmas (oh my word – where has this year gone to? And the new autumn/winter catalogue will be out tomorrow!) – we made a stack of Christmas cards – 5 each of 2 designs – one traditional and one more modern.


We used a masking technique to stamp a Christmas wreath onto whisper white cardstock using one of the images from the autumn days stamp set from Stampin’ Up!, in two colours using stampin’ write marker pens – old olive and early espresso …

It was surprising how quickly we could stamp the images – it seemed to take no time at all!


And for a more modern look, we used pool party cardstock and ink to make this snowflake and bauble card, and added adhesive rhinestones in different sizes for sparkle…
