Hot Diggity Dog from Stampin’ Up!

I made this card in a snap, seriously I am a little embarrassed at how simple it is but I had an hour to make, photograph, watermark and upload into this post – nothing like working under pressure!! I used the Hot Diggity Dog stamp set from Stampin’ Up! as I love the scotty dog image…..

I stamped and embossed the bone on the black background but its hard to see in the photograph.  I scored a border and raised the little doggies head with a dimensional and added a googly eye.

I think this card would look lovely in other colour ways and given to a dog lover as a card gift set for Christmas.
Here is the sketch which inspired me –

Wondrous Wreath Christmas card

Here is the third card we made last month at my technique class using the Wondrous wreath stamp set and matching framelits.  We made a traditional Christmas card and used the Hardwood background stamp to create a wooden door background.

I love the ‘noel’ which is a word die in the wondrous wreath framelits pack.  I cut it out in the red glimmer paper (use some waxed paper between the die and the paper for easy removal) and attached is across the front of the wreath.

Here it is open….

I coloured the stamp using stampin write markers to get different coloured words.  Wondrous wreath is such a versatile stamp set, it makes a beautiful Christmas card but also cards for other occasions too!

Amazing Birthday from Stampin’ Up! using a sketch

I rustled up this little number using the Amazing Birthday stamp set using a sketch challenge from Stamping&Blogging today.  I think this is a perfect mans card and I used the Trim the Tree paper for the background and trimmed some strips to add a pop of colour.

Amazing-Birthday-from Stampin' Up!

I stamped the rectangular sentiment again in crumb cake and cut out the key words ‘Today’ and ‘Amazing’ and mounted them higher on dimensionals which gives some dimension and interest. You can see what I mean below….

Handmade Wondrous Wreath Stampin’ Up! Christmas Card

Here is a handmade Christmas card I made using the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and matching framelits from Stampin’ Up!
wondrous wreath-garland christmas card

I love how the wreath stamp can be used in so many different ways including a swag/garland! I had to make the card extra long to add the garland and I made an envelope to fit using the envelope punch board.

We made this at my monthly technique class, we make 3 beautiful cards and you can attend in person or choose the Class to Go to make in the comfort of your own home.  I send links to three comprehensive videos showing you step by step how to make the cards and post all the supplies needed (cardstock and embellishments) to make the card.  Everything is cut and scored and you can substitute stamps and inks for ones  you have at home if you don’t have the supplies I use.  Check out my class schedule in the tabs at the top as I would love you to join me at a class (or class to go) in the future.

Have you started your Christmas cards yet?  It feels like Christmas is way off yet as the weather has been so mild but a little sneak at the calendar tells me that I need to get cracking and get making so if like me you need to get a move on, pop on over to my online shop and order your supplies so you are all ready to make a start!  Have a great day x
