New at SU Blog Hop – Warm & Cozy

Hi, Welcome to the New at SU Blog Hop for December. It’s hard to believe that this year is nearly over – we made it! Our theme this month is Warm & Cozy. in Melbourne, this time of year is generally warm and not so cozy. However, my card today reflects the feelings that Christmas brings.

For me, Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Christ and enjoying this time with my family and loved ones. To capture our theme, I chose the Heartwarming Hugs DSP because of it’s traditional Christmas colours and of course with a name like that it definitely speaks ‘cozy’ to me.

I added a house fussy cut from the Trimming the Town DSP as it reminds me of the warmth of spending time with our loved ones at Christmas. The sentiment is from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set which has lovely sentiments and I particularly like the font on this one. With a simple layout such as this, it’s easy to create several of these Christmas cards to give out. A handmade card is always appreciated.

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Winter Wonderland

Hello and welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne, Australia. It’s 12am, 1st of December when this blog hop goes live and we are officially in Summer and so far away from a Winter Wonderland. Our theme for the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop this month is Winter/Holidays.

Stampers Showcase Blog Header Hop Header Hop Header

I immediately wanted to create a winter themed project using the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper was brought out last Christmas and it was so popular it was brought out again this Christmas. It’s got beautiful photographic images of wintry, snowy scenery on one side, while the other side is accented with silver foil which is perfect for all year round projects.

I combined this with the Wishes & Wonder Bundle to create a card and gift tag with Blushing Bride adding a lovely shade of pink against the crisp white. It almost feels like a fairytale. I resisted the urge to add some Wink of Stella on that sleigh just in case it looked too much ‘princess carriage’ like.

I just had to use the embroidered ribbon from our new catalogue as it added to the rustic, wintry feel of this card.

Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop – Christmas Tree Decorations

ink stamp share header

Hi friend, Welcome to the November Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop. I’m so glad I’ve got this blog hop as I’ve been in a bit of a crafting rut this past week and this has forced me to get on the job! It’s a little bit different today as we are sharing handmade Christmas tree decorations with you. Being in a craft rut and trying to come up with something different was a challenge.

Gold hoops were going to be my featured product and my decorations evolved from this. This was then combined with the beautiful Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper to create these cute ornaments which could also double up as gift tags.

Each one has an embossed panel and I’ve used various punches and dies for the main image. The hoops were added with glue dots.

I love the layered ribbons with the lace trim adding a vintage look to these charming ornaments. I think I’ll be making a few more of these to gift to some work colleagues as I really enjoyed making them and they were really easy to make.

If you would like to give these decorations a try, I’ve got a complete list of products at the end of this post.

New at SU Blog Hop – Sleigh Bells Ring!

Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne, Australia. I’m blog hopping with my friends at the New at SU team and the theme is Happy Holidays. I have chosen the Wishes & Wonder bundle to highlight. With it’s reindeer and sleigh and other images, it is a very cute set to work with. I particularly like the tag that is in the dies.

New at SU Blog Hop, Header

I have used the Curvy Dies for the background along with the coordinating stamp set. This is part of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle which you get at 10% discount when purchasing as a bundle. The stamped trees were shaded in the Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend to give some light colour.

The reindeer were stamped in Early Espresso on Sahara Sand cardstock and then shaded with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. This method of stamping and colouring is a quick way to get shading without spending too much time on colouring in.

I cut out one section of the Wonder of the Season Designer Series Paper for the tag. Then I ran only the bottom section through with the die to create the detailed edge as I didn’t want the tag punched out at the top.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope it has inspired you with some creative ideas for the holidays. Please follow the hop through for lots of fun holiday projects and leave us comments as you go along as we love hearing from you.

Create a Quick Curvy Christmas Pine Tree Card

The new Quite Curvy Variety bundle offers endless combinations of mixing things up the dies for creating some pretty effects. I created this Christmas card with just one cut of the Sahara Sand DSP which adds the lovely dotted detail. I added some sponging and stamped stars in Balmy Blue on the top half of the card.

Curvy Celebrations, Stampin' Up!, Perfectly Plaid, Christmas Card, SU

The tree from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set is created with some two-step stamping. The outline image was stamped in Just Jade then I lined up the leaves to fill them in with Granny Apple Green. The coordinating Pine Tree punch makes it easy to create a quick Christmas card which is what we are all looking for right now.

Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper – Part 10

Today is the final in my series on Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper. There are several more that I could share but I’ve chosen one to highlight that you would have seen throughout this series. Layer your DSP to create coordinated projects. Use the sheets from the same pack to make it even easier to coordinate. Adding layers can make your focal elements really stand out and also adds depth to projects.

Layer it up

Use your Designer Series Paper as a matte layer or on top of a cardstock layer. Layering different patterns which complement each other creates beautiful effects.

On this Christmas card I used the classic gingham design as my background and then matte a layer with all the woodland animals in the foreground.

Fun Ways with Designer Series Paper, Fun Ways with DSP, North Pole Wonder Dies, Deer, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!, SU, Toile Tidings DSP, Layer your DSP, Joy Dies

A deer from the North Pole Wonder die cut from Cinnamon Cider Velveteen Paper was added to match the DSP.

This is another simple card which, this time, uses the In Good Taste DSP as the matte layer. I added a bold sentiment from the fun Ridiculously Awesome stamp set.

A bit of sponging in Balmy Blue, a bow, a few sequins and this is a quick make card. Don’t miss out the DSP sale which ends 31st October. Grab yourself a bargain, shop a gift for a friend, stock up and save. All orders over $50 are eligible for Stamping Flair Loyalty Points.
