Wonderland, Sleigh Ride Edgelits and Jingle All the Way Stampin' Up! 2015 Christmas card.

Hello lovely friends. 

Today's card features some more of the 2015 Holiday Catalogue products which are retiring on the 4th January (or before if sold out). I really like how it turned out with the contrast of the black, gold and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

I have used the luxurious Winter Wonderland Designer Series Paper which is a fabulous combination of gold, black and white. I have cut a couple of layers using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and my Bigshot; one in Gold Foil and the other in White Glimmer Paper (love how this looks like snow).  To finish off I just added some sequins, a greeting from the Antique Tags stamp set (this greeting perfectly fits the Washi Label punch) and some gold cord trim.

I think these Edgelit dies and matching Jingle all the Way stamp set have been one of the most popular Christmas crafting items in my online store this season. If you would like to recreate this card, I've listed the product used after my signature below. I'm always happy to answer any questions by email or phone too. You can contact me HERE.

Have a happy day and thanks for visiting,

Kind regards,

Claire

Four more Stampin' Up! Chistmas cards for 2015.

Here are the second lot of Christmas cards I promised to post for you. I hope there are some ideas for you here.

Stampin Up Retired Products

 

Many of the products I have used on these cards are in the Holiday Catalogue retired product list. These products are available until January 4th or until sold out. Here is the retiring products list: Download Retiring Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue Products 2015

First up I have a couple of cards using the Herringbone technique. This technique is fabulous for using up pieces of patterned paper. I have used the Antique Tags stamp set for my greeting (hostess set).

This peeking through the window card, uses the Hearth and Home Framelits which aren't retiring, but the Wonderland stamp set behind the window is, as well as the Snowflake Element, Season of Cheer Designer Series paper, and the Versatile Christmas set used for the greeting.

Finally I have this sponged night sky card using Sleigh Ride Framelits and Jingle All the Way Stamp Set. The stars are embossed in white before the night sky is sponged to create varying shades of the sky.

Three Stampin Up 2015 Christmas cards for you.

Hello there friends. Time to catch up on posting some Christmas cards I've completed over the past few weeks. Hope you find some inspiration here. Lots of these products are retiring from the current Holiday Catalogue, so if there is something you love, the product links are below my signature.

Love these colours of Mint Macaron, Rose Red, Silver and White together, I have used the Among the Branches Stamp Set, leftovers from the Oh What Fun Tag Kit, Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Silver Cording, 1/8" striped ribbon and Silver Glimmer Paper. You NEED a Triple Banner Punch to make punching those flag ends a breeze. These days that's my most used Stampin' Up! tool besides my Stampin' Trimmer.

Next up we have a card I made using one of the cards from the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Card Collection. Project Life cards make awesome element for cards too. I have also used some Cherry Cobbler Thick Bakers Twine, some Gold Cording Trim, a Snowflake Element and a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper and Home for Christmas Enamel Dots. My base card is Cherry Cobbler.

This one is a super simple one that could quickly and easily be reproduced into a batch of cards. The stamp set used here is Cosy Christmas, and the DSP is from Season of Cheer. I stamped the Santa and sleigh image in Soft Sky onto Soft Sky cardstock, and my greeting was coloured direct to rubber using my Soft Sky, Mossy Meadow and Real Red markers. I've also used the 2.5" Circle Punch and Tree Punch.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards. I have another 4 coming tomorrow morning in another post, so stay tuned. Until then, stay happy.

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: Memory Keeping

Awht blog hop start
Welcome to my Art With Heart Team Blog Hop for November. This month some of the girls are focusing on Memory Keeping (Scrapbooking/Project Life). We all take photos right? Well, capturing every day moments is so special and we need to document these to cherish. We are all passionate about memory keeping and we want to continue to inspire each other, and you, as we move forward in 2016!

First up I have a traditional scrapbook page of a favourite photo from last Christmas. I have used the Words of Truth stamp set on this page, along with the Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper

Stampin Up Scrapbook Page 2015 Claire Daly Australia. Using Words of Truth stamp set and Everyday Chic DSP.

 

I have white embossed the title (be sure to use the embossing buddy when embossing white on black). Then I stamped the other phrases from the set and used them as journalling. For some additional journalling I downloaded a free typewriter font, and used that on a spare journalling card. I've also added an antique brad and a spare wooden heart I had leftover from a card kit.

You will LOVE the Words of Truth stamp set by Stampin' Up!. Just use the title or item number 139397 in the search box in  my online store (red button top right column).

I also have another page to show you form the Project Life New York album I am working on. The Project Life by Stampin' Up! Let's Get Away Card Collection is awesome for travel pages!

I love how easy it is to tell your story as you go with Project Life. Just pop in the journalling cards and write away. I also use punches to cut out bits of other cards to add additional bits and pieces to the cards sometimes (such as the punched out world shape centre top.

Here is a closer look at the Project Life by Stampin' Up! Card Collection, Accessory Pack and coordinating stamp set. All of these can be purchased in my online store (red button top right) under the Project Life section.
