12 Weeks of Christmas #6 - Single Stitched Stocking

Today I have a card that was one we made for my recent Christmas Stamp a Stack.  We used the Stitched Stocking Stamp Set along with the matching Punch to create a single Christmas Stocking.

This was quite a simle card.  I haven't put the different cuff or toe and heal piece onto the stocking, just kept it easy.  The words are from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments and I punched them out with the bottom half of the Decorative Label Punch.

The colours used are Real Red, Whisper White and Lucky Limeade.  And of course a tiny rhinestone placed in the middle to finish off the card.

We have Regionals this weekend and I have a card or two to show you that I will be presenting as my Wow presentation.  Wish me luck and happy creating.

12 Weeks of Christmas #5 - Delightful Decorations

Welcome to my 5th week of Christmas creations.  This week I have made a card using the Delightful Decorations set which also has a matching punch to cut out the baubles.  The colours used are Very Vanilla, Marina Mist and my favourite, Cherry Cobbler.  A rhinestone in the middle of the bauble finishes it off as well as the Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon across the top. 

I also like to use the Petals a Plenty for Christmas and I used it again here.  I kept the bottom quarter out of the folder leaving a blank space to stamp my words "Merry Christmas".

See you next week if not before.

12 Weeks of Christmas #4 - Snow Swirled

I confess that I made this card last year and forgot to post it on my blog.  I have to say I was pretty chuffed after I finished this one.  It was a layout challenge at a retreat I went to and I don't normally do Layout Challenges but I should LOL.  I think this came up a treat.  I have used the lovely set "Snow Swirled".  It is so elegant with the fancy tree and snow flakes.   I have put the red piece of cardstock through the Petals a Plenty embossing folder and then used Shimmer Mist to give it a dazzle. 

I used the music notes wheel on the bottom of the card with Crumb Cake to add a bit of a Christmas Carol feel and tied a big red satin bow.

I stamped the tree image and the words first before cutting the right side of the circles off. That way you can get your words straight.  Added a few rhinestones to the tree and your done.

12 Weeks of Christmas #3 - Tags til Christmas

 Happy Monday to everyone.  Today I have another card I have made using the Tags til Christmas stamp set.  I know it's the same stamp as I used last time but I just love it.
 I have also got stuck into the new Glass Glitter from Stampin' Up!  It's my new best friend.  I love it.  So much less messy than the fine glitter and gives a totally different effect too.  I've used Champagne Glass Glitter on this card.  I believe it is supposed to "age" over time and become a bit tarnished.  That would just add to the effect I reckon.

To apply it to my card I used the Multipurpose Liquid Glue so it had a bit of staying power.  It finishes the card of beautifully I think.

I have also used my embossing folders, Vintage Wallpaper and Petals a Plenty and I can't get away from the good old Cherry Cobbler colour either.  Sorry - I hope to have a different coloured project for you next week.LOL

Till next time, happy stamping.
