Handmade Christmas Card using Stampin’ Up! products

You only have a couple of weeks to purchase items in the current Autumn/Winter catalogue before they leave us and a new Spring Summer Catalogue is introduced from Stampin’ Up!  I will be so sad to see some of the items go, I have loved the designs in this catalogue and won’t be parting with some of the sets, especially White Christmas, I simply love that set!  SO here is a handmade Christmas card made using another set which will be leaving us called Seasonally Scattered.

Seasonally Scattered from Stampin Up by Michelle Last

I used the Merry sentiment and embossed it on white cardstock in white embossing powder.  I then inked over the embossed sentiment in Lost Lagoon and Night of Navy ink using a dauber which made the word ‘pop’. I added some glimmer, embossing and a beautiful snowflake charm (which are also going :() and it turned into a beautiful handmade Christmas card.

Be sure to take a moment to look through the seasonal catalogue (link to the pdf catalogue is available by clicking the link on the right hand side of my blog) and see if there is anything in there you cannot live without.  I am working till Tuesday but my online shop is open 24 hours a day, days a week so lots of chance to get your order in before it is too late.

Hope your last minute Christmas plans are coming together :0)

Stampin’ Up! Thanks card using Seasonally Scattered

This is one of the cards we made at my recent Technique Class using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set.
Thankyou card using Seasonally Scattered from Stampin Up

I love the leaf detail around the sentiment and wanted to use it as a border around the edge of the card so we made our own ink pad using neutrals ink refills and stamped around the edge of the cardstock as well as the envelope.  I needed a little bit of bling so I used a versamark pen to highlight specific leaves and heat embossed them in gold.

This stamp set will be leaving us when the latest Autumn/Winter catalogues disappears on 5th Jan so if there are items in the current seasonal you cannot live without I would recommend you place an order before they disappear. Have a great day everyone x

I wanted to replicate some of the beautiful sunsets I have seen lately and sponge daubed orange, pink and light blue for the sky.  I also added crystal effects to the banner and the tree trunks so they stayed the correct coloured and did not merge into the sky background.

I stamped the snowflakes from Endless Wishes in versamark and sprinkled with heat & stick powder and heat set and then quickly added the dazzling diamonds glitter and heat set briefly again.
Here is the sketch which inspired me….

Stampin’ Up! Flower Patch spinner card

I made a card using the sketch from Stamping&Blogging and decided to make a spinner card.  I used the Flower Patch stamps from Stampin’  Up!, it is hard to see that it spins in the photo below but trust me it does work!

Can you see the thread in the die cut circle?  I stamped two large grey flowers and glued the thread in between the die cut flowers.  I then secured the thread at the top and bottom of the circle and made sure I positioned the flower perfectly so that none of the petals touched the edge of the circle otherwise it would not spin.

I decorated the front of the card and added some sparkle and once I had written the card I flipped the flower over several times so that once the recipient opens the card the flowers will spin :0)
