Snowflake Sentiments Quick Christmas Card

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Being from the northern hemisphere, I do appreciate a good snowflake card.  This is a great one if you enjoy snowflakes as a pretty embellishment or if you have cards to send to family and friends in colder climates:

 

 

I love this fresh, happy colour combination, even if it is with snow icons!   These colours bring a bit of the Kiwi culture into it with our summer holidays.

 

This card features a few die cuts, simple stamping, a strip of Designer Series Paper, and some wraps of that rough Jute Twine.  Pair that jute with some sparkling enamel dots and rhinestones for a fun contrast.

You can whip out a stack of these in no time. Shopping list below:

All Stars December Blog Hop – Beautiful Bouquet!

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

 

Welcome to another Blog Hop around the All Stars Design Team!  You have landed in New Zealand at Jacque Williams’ blog!  This month we are featuring bundles from both the Holiday and the Annual Catalogue, and I’m choosing to feature the Beautiful Bouquet bundle:

 

The card design itself is simple, but I had a lot of fun creating those flowers!

 

Isn’t this just a fun look?  Each and every flower is different thanks to a little magic using the Subtles Ink Refills, Watercolor Paper, and the Aqua Painter brush.   Basically I just created my own washed paper, let dry, and die cut from there.

 

Assemble your beautiful bouquet and adhere to a Stitched Shape Oval. Now if you don’t have the Stitched Shape Framelits yet, I strongly encourage you to make that investment. They are just SO useful!

All these pretty elements are paired with the darkest wood print in the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack for a striking contrast.

 

I have made another project with this gorgeous bundle, which you can find in our December All Stars Tutorial – FREE with any $50 order through me during December or you can order below:

Season Like Christmas in Vintage Gate Fold

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

I hope you are enjoying all the Christmas project ideas I’m sharing in my 12 Weeks of Christmas series!  It’s been fun to hear the responses and see what you’ve been making!

Today’s share is the project I taught at the recent Creative Inkers Christmas Extravaganzas using the versatile Season Like Christmas stamp set:

 

We had great fun teaching this one – so many techniques here and very rewarding to hear people please themselves with how easily this stamp set creates wonderful images!

 

This card is a gate fold card for something a little bit different and interesting.

And Crumb Cake, Basic Black, and Old Olive are certainly the trending colour combination this season!

 

Most everyone wanted to give this snowfall a try, and it’s pretty easy to do!  We used both Embossing Paste and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to create a textured, tactile, and super sparkling scene here.   It’s always good fun to give new things a try!

I love this project and I loved sharing it.  I know anyone receiving this card in the mail from someone would be so pleased!

Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop – Cheery Chirps with Stampin’ Blends!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Welcome to another blog hop with the demonstrators who have achieved the trip to Alaska in 2018!

 

 

You’ve landed in New Zealand at Jacque Williams’ Blog!  Thanks for stopping in.  My share today is using that cute, cute set Cheery Chirps, colored in with the new Stampin’ Blends markers:

 

This card is actually a remake of the wreath card I posted two days ago; I had a few leftover kits and wanted to try the new Stampin’ Blends out.  I love how these turned out,   So easy to use and just so effective!

 

Not just for Christmas, I thought these Cheery Chirps birds would make a happy and fun thank you card, perfect to have on hand for after the holidays.

 

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed your stop in New Zealand!  Supply and shopping list below:

Painted Harvest for a Quick Christmas Card

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Happy Monday!  Thanksgiving is now over, and Christmas preparations are in full steam!  Today’s share is a quick, easy Christmas card you can whip out by the dozen in no time at all.  And even better, use a “flower” stamp set to create this wreath so you get maximum value for money!

 

When stamped in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive, this flower becomes a wreath!  I’ve also colored in the smaller pearls with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to create holly and dimension.

 

Add some simple matting and Black Mini Sequin Trim to finish it off. I’ve also used the new Quilt Top Embossing Folder for a warm look.

 

As you can see, I made up a few of these myself!

Colour Inkspiration #22 – a Beachy Sort of Christmas

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Welcome to another round of Colour Inkspiration Challenge!  We’d love to have your participation; simply join in over the next 3 weeks with your design using the colour combination provided!

 

Some of you may know, my eldest daughter, Madeleine, is in the United States serving a mission for our church.  She’s a bit homesick and becoming more proud of her Kiwi upbringing, so I decided I’d use this colour challenge to create a large card for some of our friends to sign as part of her Christmas package:

 

I wanted to make her something a little bit more summery, yet still traditional.  I’ve chosen to use the Season Like Christmas stamp set, one of my favorites from the Holiday Catalogue. How great is a three step tree?!    And at only $36 NZD, this one is a bargain!

 

In hindsight, I think I will add a bit of colour to those pearls (now that we can!!) with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends.

 

 

The Blossom Builder Punch has a cute little flower shape that also resembles a starfish. And even better, this punch is on discount here in the South Pacific this week only!  (See links and shopping list below).

The sand I used here is actually sand . . . .  Let’s hope it gets through customs!

Thanks for stopping by my blog here in New Zealand!  Supply list below.  Enjoy the rest of your hop!  Next stop: Lou Kitzelman!
