Only 2 more sleeps to go!

I have used some of the lovely Holiday Harmony DSP that will soon be gone with the end of the Spring Mini Catalogue on the 30th of November. The pearls and beads are from the pretties kit and can you see another sneak peek from the Summer Mini Catalogue, cough, cough *scallop square punch* cough cough. The silver cord is retired from SU.

This one uses the stamp set that comes in the Simple Delights Card kit (love it) stamped on SU Textured card stock and punched out using the square punch. I have then mounted it on Textured Pretty in Pink card stock and pierced round the squares using the paper piercing tool and mat pack in the Crafters Tool kit and used my white gel pen to make it look like stitching.
The score lines around the card base and at the bottom near the sentiment we done using the Paper Cutter and scoring blade. The ribbon is Pretty in Pink Taffeta. The Welcome Baby is from the Short and Sweet set and I have used the oval and word window punch. The use of the Textured Card stock really adds a lovely soft element to the card.
This next one was for my Aunty Robyn's birthday. She is also a SU demonstrator and you can check out her blog here - Rainbows by Robyn.

I then remove the first template and mask off the baubles with the circles I created when I punched the first template. I place the second template at the top of each bauble and sponge in Encore Gold ink with a sponge dauber to make the bauble top and then do the same with the string template. You can then remove all your masks and finish off your card.
If you live in the Dubbo area and would like to book a workshop or a stamp-a-stack and have a go at making this card please email me at email@example.com to book.

The last one uses the Solemn Stillness two step stamp set. I have used Always Artichoke for the tree and then the decorations have been embossed using Gold EP. The Sentiment is from the Many Merry Messages stamp set and it has also been embossed straight onto the Holiday Harmony DSP (soon to be retired from the Spring Mini Catalogue). The ribbon is Purely Pomegranate double stitched grosgrain ribbon. The card base on the last two cards is Confetti White CS which I found makes a great strong card base for my christmas cards. On the inside of the cards I used the different christmas messages from Many Merry Messages.
If you have a group of about 5 people, live in Dubbo or the surrounding area and want to have a stamp-a-stack please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost is approx $20 per head and you will get to make 6-10 cards depending on the type of card you want to do.

We wrapped his present in brown paper and my husband drew a cool web on the top and I made a cute little spider out of SU punches. I saw this idea on this blog here by Jenni Oliver. I changed it slightly because I wanted my spider to have 8 legs. It uses the scallop circle, photo corner, 1/2 inch circle and the 1/4 inch circle punches. I used two black scallop circles and attached the legs in between them so they wouldn't fall off.
I have been making so many cards in the last couple of weeks but haven't put them on my blog so hopefully over the next few days I will be posting them on here, so stay tuned.
