Christmas Classics Cards

Christmas is coming......

I got the inspiration for these cards from the talented Kerri Hunter (see here), they look so clean and classic. The Christmas Classics set is so easy to use, for these first cards I used Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. The lines are created with the Crimper (by SU), and gives such a great affect.

These next couple I did with Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip.

Hope you are have a good week (we are currently sweltering here in 35 degrees celcius, thank goodness for air conditioning).

Another Watering Can

I love these watering cans - they are so easy to put together. You will be pleased to know I have also branched out from by 'usual' colour scheme (I decided I need to try some variety).

See my previous post for the link to Splitcoast Stampers for the template.

Holiday Line Up - Gift Card Holders

As promised I am posting my Holiday Lineup Gift Card Holders (I do love this set). All supplies used Stampin Up.

These guys are so cute, I have coloured them in using a blender pen and the Stampin Up inks (you can also use the blender pen with markers too - I colour the marker on an acrylic block and then pick up the colour from the block).

On the inside of the cards I included a panel with the Christmas sentiment, and added more of the DSP with a circle punch of the 'guys' on the back panel.

Hope you are having a great week.

Workshop Christmas Card

I wanted a simple Christmas Card for an upcoming workshop that utilised stamps (rather than DSP). This is what I came up with (all supplies Stampin Up), its a clean look but I like it.

I used the snowflakes from the Winter Post set and the Short & Sweet set and the sentiments from Many Merry Messages set. I will have this available for the girls to do in the colour of their choice - Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, and Old Olive. (Apologies for the blurry picture!)

I am waiting on my Snow Swirled set to arrive, so when it does I might add another card using that set if I have time.

I tried out the scheduling function with this post - hope it works!!

Workshop Christmas Gift Card Holders

For an upcoming Workshop I decided to do Gift Card Holders. Here are the two versions I made:

The measurements I got from the talented Dawn Griffith, but I changed them slightly so I could get 2 out of standard A4 sheet of cardstock (its 11" x 4 1/8", scored at 3", 5 1/2" and 8").

These were so easy to make that I have made some others using the Holiday Lineup set - they are really cute (I will post them later this week).

Well back to work tomorrow : (
