Candy Cane Lane DSP Gingerbread House Christmas Cards

Love love love these cute gingerbread houses featured in the Candy Cane Lane DSP from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. They make a great feature of a card by themselves when you cut them out with a pair of paper snips.

All I've needed to add is a bit of background stamping, a strip of coordinating DSP and a bit of copper with an embossed greeting (love this greeting from Holly Berry Happiness) and a little copper heart cut using the heart border punch.

Simple DIY Christmas card using Stampin' Up! Holly Berry Happiness

Are you looking for a Christmas Card design you can make batches of? I need these in the lead up to Christmas so will be featuring some over the coming months. Today's card uses the stamp set Holly Berry Happiness from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.

Stampin Up quick and easy DIY Christmas card using Holly Berry Happiness from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia at www.clairedaly.typepad.com

I've just watercoloured the Holly image from the stamp set (in Old Olive and Real Red) onto Shimmer Paper (this is a great medium to watercolour on as an alternative to watercolour paper), stamped the greeting and added some gold enamel shapes (on special this week - 25% off) and ribbon. The Real Red 3/4 inch stitched ribbon adds extra colour to the card front. Tying it in a bow would make the card too bulky to easily post. As an alternative I like to just tie some linen thread around the ribbon where the bow would have gone.

Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set and Projects Kit from Stampin' Up!

These Tin of Cards Project Kits from Stampin' Up! have been a huge hit in the catalogue both last year and this year. In this years 2016 Annual Catalogue, we have a new tin (Dapper Denim stripes) and all new card designs and stamp set. I think this years is my favourite.

The stamp set is awesome to stand alone. The sentiments are just beautiful. Here is a stand alone card I made with the one of the sentiments from the stamp set.

Thoughtful Branches Bundle by Stampin' Up! - Just 10 days left to grab it!

I'm so glad I bought the Thoughtful Branches bundle by Stampin' Up!. To be honest I wasn't 100% sure at the beginning as I had other tree and flower stamps, BUT as soon as I started playing with it on my friends weekend away, I had to have it. I'm just finding it's the perfect combination of great sentiments in a great font, and some really versatile images and Thinlits. I make lots of cards using nature images too. 

Here's a couple of simple cards I made to let some people know I was thinking of them. They were so quick and simple to make! For this one my greeting is stamped in Early Espresso  and my leaves in Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Sweet Sugarplum.

This one is the same card in different colours. The greeting is stamped in Dapper Denim and the leaves in Emerald Envy, Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon.

I also stamped my monthly customer thank you cards using this bundle. Again they were really quick and easy and I love how they turned out.
