Christmas a time of Joy!

Todays card is again made with a new stamp set from the upcoming 2017 Holiday Catalogue.
This time, I have used a set called Cheers to the Year......I LOVE this set!

It's such a versatile set. Not only is it great for Christmas, it also has sentiments for New Years and a newly married couple. The whole Year Of Cheer Suite can be used either for Christmas or weddings. Well any occasion really. It's stunning. So classy and elegant.

Here is what I made

Simple, fresh, clean and sharp.

This makes for a quick Christmas card, no fuss, just a bit of layering and some embossing.
You could also make this in any color because the accents are in gold.

A full list of items used to make this card, except for the new stamp set (available Set 1st) features below.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card.
Until next time
Happy Stamping (tap tap tap)

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

Yep...I'm back to making christmas cards again and playing with the new stamp sets from the soon to be released 2017 Holiday Catalogue.
You can never be too prepared for Christmas I think and every year I say I'm going to get an early start, in August, on my cards so that way I can make heaps and have them ready by November.
Well this year, I'm doing it and it feels good. At this rate, I'll have between 50 and 100 so there will be no excuse not to send them.

I saw this card on Stampin' Pretty recently - you may know her as Mary Fish, a demo in the U.S.

There is so much I LOVE about this card!
The layout, the color combo, its clean and crisp and fresh.
So I though, lets CASE it and turn it into a Christmas card.
Here is what I came up with.

I have used 2 new Christmas stamp sets called Watercolor Christmas and Seasonal Chums The Watercolor Christmas set also coordinates with a new Christmas Project Kit.

The square Stitched Shapes framelits Dies make it super easy to create matching size squares.

I'm really looking forward to sending out my cards this year. Each one of them will be different so plenty of variety indeed.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my project.

A Very Copper Christmas!

Recently while scrolling through Pinterest...(as you do), I came across a color combination that I immediately loved.....Copper, Crumb Cake & Whisper White.
So it then gave me an idea for a christmas card..using those colours.
Off to the craft table I marched.

Luckily Stampin' Up!® have a range of Copper products...perfect for my project.

Here is what I made:

I love how the Copper looks with the Crumb Cake..
I have used the Copper Foil sheets for the background piece layered on the Crumb Cake base, layered a piece of the Copper trim on top of the Burlap Ribbon and used small strands of the Copper Thread behind the whisper White piece.

Then I have embossed the stamped image with Copper Embossing Powder.

I LOVE how the Copper embossing powder looks finished.

I think if I were to make another one of these, I might try running the piece of Copper Foil through the Big Shot with an embossing folder to lift the background.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project.
