Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
I want to thank you for your support throughout the year, whether you shopped with me, came to classes or retreats, helped me prepare for events, liked and commented on my FB posts, gave me cards and gifts, it’s all helped with my small business and I really appreciate it.
It’s been a challenging year in many ways but we made it!
I’ve loved sharing and creating wonderful projects and memories with you through out the year.
I will be taking a short break from 24 December – 6 January but if you need to order you can pop onto my online store any time.
Looking forward to seeing you next year.
For our final class of the year we made four Christmas cards and an ornament.
For our first card we use the beautiful Snowflake Wishes bundle.
This card was cased from Martin Stone.
We used Pretty Peacock for the card base and the front as well. Snowflake Splendor ribbon is attached with a staple for the embellishment. There’s also a hint of Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper if you look carefully.
I love the depth of the colour of the Pretty Peacock card stock. To finish the card off, we splattered it with Wink of Stella by flicking the end of the brush.
I hope you like this card as much as I do.Products used in this project
I found this card on Pinterest and cased it as well.
I made a few changes, using what I had, but this is a lovely way to use the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper.
The card base is thick Very Vanilla card stock and the greeting is from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set which is stamped on the Stitched Nestled Labels dies.
Everyone loved using the new Stampin’ Cut and Embossing Machine (replaced the Big Shot) which we used to cut out some of the pieces.
The Star Designer element and the ribbon finish off the card beautifully.Products used in this project
This next card uses my design. It is a double easel card and I used thick Whisper White cut in half length ways for the main base of the card.
For the remainder of the card I used Misty Moonlight cut slightly smaller but still length ways.
Once again I used the Snowflake Wishes bundle and some silver foil for the snowflakes, as well as frosted and clear epoxy droplets for the embellishments.
We stamped on the front part of the card and ran the rest through the Winter Snow embossing folder.
I love the greeting, ‘May your season sparkle’… it’s kinda cute.Products used in this project
For our last card we made this simple but elegant card using the window die out of the Snowflake Bundle.
We heat embossed the greeting add a bit more style and texture to the card.
I love the effect of this die creating a little window to peek through.
The foil is embossed with the 3D Evergreen Forest embossing folder which just looks stunning!Products used in this project
Our last project was a just for a bit of extra fun. Wade and I had to prune some branches off a gum tree in the back yard, so I thought that I could use a repurposed section of the branch as a base for Christmas decorations.
I came up with this ornament to hang on a tree.
I used the retired Dashing Deer Stamp, along with some Rhinestones (coloured with the Real Red Stampin’ blend pen) and used the beautiful Real Red sheer ribbon and some gold metallic trim from the Forever Greenery trim.
I would love to thank all of my wonderful customers for your support by coming to my classes and shopping with me ❤️.
It’s been a challenging year but we’ve made it.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I very much look forward to crafting with you in the new year.
