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.

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.

Kre8tors Blog Hop – Spring

Hello and welcome to our Kre8tors Blog Hop this month. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Melbourne, Australia. We have just finished Easter, however where you are, you still may be celebrating this wonderful occasion. I hope you have a lovely day. 

Kre8tors Blog Hop August Color Challenge

Our theme this month is Spring. In Melbourne we are getting into chilly Autumn right now so I drew on some bright and cheery colours as we need all the cheering up we can get at the moment. The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper has some fun colour choices as well as some pretty, fahion-inspired patterns.

Both these cards use the same measurements and a very simple layout. I used the flowers from the Easter Promise stamp set to create my focal image for the Lovely Lipstick card. I have used Stampin’ Blends to colour it in. If you haven’t tried Stampin’ Blends, I encourage you to give it a try. This is such a simple colouring tool to use and blending is very easy. A ribbon bow, sentiment and a quick card completed.

I created the same card with different paper and the Dressed to Impress stamp set and it just changes the look.  So how do high heel shoes and handbags tie in with the Spring theme? I thought of the Spring racing carnival in Melbourne where women love to dress up so that was my inspiration for this card. The sentiment is from the Label me Bold stamp set. I’ve been using this set increasingly as it has sentiments to suit different occasions and some nice background-style images.

Thank you for checking out my cards today. I hope you give these quick make cards a try and look forward to seeing you back soon. Click on the Next button to see what Annette Ball has in store for you.
