Christmas crafting!

Hi everyone,

Had a lovely Coffee and Card class this morning despite a couple of cancellations but Judy and I soldiered on and made a lovely monochrome Christmas card (pictured above).  Very easy to make.  Here’s how!

MATERIALS:

  1. Night of Navy Cardstock for card base.
  2. Whisper White cardstock for card front
  3. Night of Navy Ink
  4. White ribbon
  5. Extra Whisper White cardstock for sentiment
  6. Piece of computer paper to make your mask.

METHOD:

  1. First of all make a “mask” by using the 2.5″ circle punch in a scrap piece of paper.
  2. On your card front of whisper white cardstock, sponge with Night of Navy ink in circles ensuring you hold your mask down.  Leave a little lighter area in the centre or just off centre.  Make the “moon” as dark or as light as you wish.
  3. Stamp Santa and his sleigh in memento ink across the moon.
  4. Stamp the trees from Winter Woods in Night of Navy
  5. Make a knot with some white ribbon and adhere across base of trees around the card front
  6. Stamp your sentiment on a piece of white scrap paper and punch out.
  7. Optional extra to sponge around the sentiment.
  8. Adhere your sentiment with dimensionals
  9. Glue your card front to your card base

GABLE BOXES

After the class I went to lunch with a lovely dear friend and came home and made some gable boxes.  These make a great gift wrapping idea for Christmas or fill them with some yummy chocolates or lollies or even some beautiful soap to make great stocking fillers.  I sell these for just $2.50 each but if you would like to buy the gable boxes and decorate them yourself they come as a pack of 12 for $14.00 and you can get them in either silver or white.  They are great fun to stamp and decorate with whatever your imagination delivers!

Peaceful Poinsettia

Good morning all,

Well despite not having cleaned my craft room, it will happen today some time, but as always happens when I get new products, I just have to try them out.  So here’s the latest the beautiful Peaceful Poinsettia bundle in the new Holiday Catalogue #149962 (photopolymer bundle) page 22 in the new cattie!!  I used the new Buffalo Check Background stamp #147794 page 38.  Such a versatile background stamp.  The colour of the background is Crumb Cake, one of my favourite Neutrals.  To colour the poinsettia and holly I used watercolour pencils.   I would have like to used blends but I didn’t have a Cherry Cobbler blend so I used water colour pencils.  That’s the great thing with Stampin Up there is always an alternative.  Don’t know if you can see the shimmer paint I sprayed on the card.  WOW I love this stuff!  Check them out o page 38 of the catalogue.  I used the Champagne Mist #147044 they are $14 for a small bottle but you only use such a tiny amount mixed in with alcohol (no not your good Gin or Scotch) I use Isocol rubbing alcohol and put a few drops of the paint in a water spritzer and mix with some Isocol.  It gives a beautiful shimmer to any projects.  The sentiment is heat embossed using the new in colour embossing powders (Lovely Lipstick).

We will be using this at the catalogue launch day on 21st October.  What? you haven’t booked!  Call me now to book in on 0419721561.   (hahahaha).

Well now I better go and clean my room up!!

Hope you like today’s card! Have a great day!
