Christmas Triangle Box

Here is a simple Christmas triangle box I made last year.  I love the elegance of Real Red and Whisper White together!

I stamped the swirl from Spotlight on Christmas in Whisper White craft ink.  The countdown to Christmas stamp is also from Spotlight on Christmas.  And the Scallop Oval punch really finishes off this stamp with a lovely white border.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Last of the Christmas cards …

Here are a few more Christmas cards I made for friends and family …

I made a card like the one above last year, except a different colour.  This one is Riding Hood Red and uses the stamp sets Season of Joy and Short & Sweet.  I love the Riding Hood Red tafetta ribbon!

I wanted to try a different colour scheme for a few Christmas cards, so this colour combo above is Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie.  I rolled the jumbo wheel Classic Stars in Versamark, stamped the sentiment in Old Olive from Best Yet, and the Christmas Tree from Fun & Fast Notes, coloured in with a Pumpkin Pie marker pen.

This one is similar to the colour combo above, minus the Sahara Sand.  Same stamps.  Can you make out the watermark of Classic Stars on the Very Vanilla in Versamark?  It’s a bit too subtle for my liking.  What do you think?  Compared to the card above, I also think I prefer stamping the Christmas tree and sentiment in Staz On Black better than stamping it in Old Olive.  It’s a stronger picture.  I wonder if you agree?

These two cards are the same design as from my last post inspired by Jenny from Stamping Moments.  The base colours are the same, WW, Kiwi Kiss and Real Red, and the ribbon colour on the top is Chocolate Chip and the one below is Baja Breeze.  The stamp sets are Tree Trimmings, Spotlight on Christmas, Best Yet and Season of Joy.

Christmas Stamp-a-stack cards 2009

These are some of the designs I used for the Christmas stamp-a-stacks I ran for customers/friends last year.

This one is one of my personal favourites and was inspired by Nancy Littrell on SCS here.  It was made using the masking technique, sponging using the colours Pacific Point and Pink Pirouette.  The stamp sets are Lovely as a Tree and Many Merry Messages. 

These two were inspired by Albongo on SCS here, using the stamp set Pocket Silhouettes, plus Best Yet and Short & Sweet.  Again, these cards used the masking technique.  And the colours are Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss and Real Red.  Plus, you can’t have a Christmas card without lots of Dazzling Diamonds!

The next one is a subtle colour combo, using Sahara Sand and Bashful Blue.  The stamp set is Season of Joy – so versatile!

The last card uses the colours Pacific Point, Baja Breeze and Real Red which was inspired by the incredibly talented Jenny at Stamping Moments here.  The stamp sets are Tree Trimmings, Spotlight on Christmas for the swirl on Whisper White and Season of Joy for the greeting.

Ski Slope Sour Cream Container

This is a sweet little sour cream container that we made at a recent workshop.  Just in time for Christmas!  Pop a few wrapped chocolates inside and it’s a perfect gift for friends at work!

I used the Ski Slope DSP to make the container.  We stamped the circle “Joy” stamp from Spotlight on Christmas in Baja Breeze ink.  We punched out the “Joy” with the 1-1/4″ circle punch.  Then layered it with Baja Breeze card stock punched out with the 1-3/8″ circle punch.  The final circles were layered on red card stock punched out with the Scallop circle punch.

The “Joy” was then tied on with white taffeta ribbon and silver cord (retired).

Choo Choo … the Spring Mini is here!

Well, today is the first day of Stampin’ Up!’s Spring Mini Catalogue.  You can view it online here.  I think the Mini is inspirational this year, with lovely colour combos, stamp sets with a reasonable price tag and exciting accessories!

One of the things I love about being a Stampin’ Up! demo is getting together and sharing ideas and tips with the team I’m lucky enough to be a part of – the Creative Stampers.  During school holidays we have a ‘Card in a box’ day, and this school hols, the cards were beautiful!  This was my contribution to the day (sorry I took so long to post it, Christie! Happy making!) …

This card uses the new stamp set, Choo Choo, a must for anyone with little boys!  But, as you can see, it is also a great Christmas card.  To add a Christmas element, I’ve used the stamp sets, Spotlight on Christmas, Best Yet, and Short and Sweet.  The colour combo is Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Baja Breeze – inspired by the new DSP in the Spring Mini, Ski Slope.  Of course, a little touch of sparkle makes a great Christmas card, and to do this, I used Tombow glue and SU White Chunky Sprinkles.

If you would like to place an order from the Spring Mini from anywhere in Australia then email me today.
