Some quick and easy Stampin' Up! Christmas Cards .....

Last Friday night I attended a crop with some friends and just took some images to to stamp using my Stampin' Write Markers applied directly to the rubber. It didn't take me long to put together 9 cards on Saturday. Here are a few of them. If you are a customer, you will be getting the remaining 6 pics in your customer only email later tonight.

These first two use the hostess set Four Seasons from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I have used Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Markers. The DSP is from the Festival of Prints paper pack and the Neutrals Prints DSP paper stack. Pretty simple and quick to make in multiple.

The greeting is from Petite Pairs. It fits in the Word Window Punch which layers nicely onto the Modern Label Punch.

The other quick and easy cards I made were from Owl Occasions and the Snow Festival DSP. For these cards I used various circle punches which was super quick! The greeting used here is Sweet Essentials. Isn't the font cute?

Here's a closer look at the two sentiment stamps I have used here. Both very versatile! Petite Pairs is a set of 18 stamps, which has 9 greetings, and a matching stamp that goes inside the card to finish off the greeting:

Sweet Essentials is a more modern font, and has 8 versatile greetings:

Stampin' Up! Ornament Keepsakes Vintage Bauble....

Last week I wanted to make a 'special' Christmas card. You know the type you make for a special someone that is a bit more time consuming. I decided on a vintage bauble using Ornament Keepsakes from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue (there's a special deal on this set or bundle this month. See below for more information.)

To create the vintage look, I embossed the ornament onto First Edition DSP and added adhesive pearls and an Antique Brad. I finished the card off with CrochetTrim, Naturals Specialty DSP, Delicate Designs Embossing Folder with Large Scallop Edgelits, Champagne Gimmer Paper and some Cherry Cobbler Tulle. My greeting is from Petite Pairs. I love this one because it fits perfectly inside the Word Window punch.

Make 40 Stampin' Up! Christmas Cards in a Day ....

If you are anything like me, sometimes your best intentions to make your Christmas cards early, don't always come to fruition! How about if you could whip up 40 cards in a day?

Snow Festival DSP Stampin Up

 

I have a kit and tutorials available for this pack.

The kit is just $45.80 (available in Australia only but tutorials can be purchased world wide). The kit includes the full pack of Snow Festival Designer Series paper, a full pack of red Glimmer Paper and a full pack of Gumball Green A4 cardstock. This is all ordered immediately on payment and sent straight to you from Stampin Up! The only consumables you need are your own adhesives,some scrap cardstock and ink or embossing powder. The only stamps you need are some Christmas greetings which you may already own. I have used some punches on a couple of cards but a trimmer will suffice on most. The tutorials are FREE when you purchase the kit and emailed as a PDF document to you. Envelopes aren't included, but can be added on for $10.95 for 40 C6 whisper white envelopes. I can also recommend matching embellishments if you want to add ribbon or twine (the coordinating colours are Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals, Soft Suede and Gumball Green).

The written tutorials for 20 cards(make each one twice) are $20 and completed and loaded (these tutorials are now available for immediate download thanks to the wonders of technology!). They show all the cards, exact measurements for making them and even ideas to 'step it up' if you want to add some more embellishments to your cards!

Scrapbooking the Stampin' Up! Convention 2012.....

It was lovely to get some scrapbooking done recently. Scrapbooking is what originally drew me to Stampin' Up! because I loved the concept of the exact coordination of colours between Designer Series Paper, cardstock, ink and embellishments. The stamps were pretty cool too!

What better subject to scrapbook than the Stampin'Up! Convention? This first page is a group shot of the Managers and above in my team with Shelli at Managers Reception in Canberra.

The colours I have used are Basic Gray as the base cardstock and Rose Red for the doileys which were cut with the Delicate Doileys sizzlit die and BigShot. These two colours are a great match for the Floral District Designer Series Paper. As an added feature, I have clear embossed the images from Flowering Flourishes onto the page. This is a fabulous set for scrapbooking!

I did a matching page for the right hand side, with some of my favourite pictures from Convention 2012 and similar colours and embellishments.

Stampin Up Scrapbooking

I hope you like the pages. Here is a closer look at some of the key products I used. If you would like to purchase any of these, just shoot me an email and I'll add up your purchases and advise postage costs (5% or $5.95). I place orders same day payment is received and have them sent straight to you from Stampin' Up! so your have your goodies quick smart!

Here is the yummy Floral District DSP:
