Classic White Christmas Card Kit and Tutorial

 Hello again

Today I have a set of cards that all started when I wanted to use my fancy new Metallic Mesh Ribbon (and I instantly thought of Christmas cards). This is often my process when creating - select one item that I want to use, or is being neglected, in my stash and away I go!!!

The great thing about these cards is that you can use any coloured cardstock - I made one of each set using Blushing Bride and Balmy Blue.

I have two options available - a ready to make card kit by mail available Australia wide - or you can purchase just the tutorial (available worlwide).


Option 1 - Card Kit by Mail (Australia only)

There are eight (8) cards in this kit, 2 of each 4 designs and the colour options are up to you - choose any colour from the Stampin' Up! range of cardstock or choose two different colours and make a set of each - just let me know what you decide.

Also included three 6" x 6" pieces of each design from the Plush Poinsettia Designer Paper, die-cuts and labels and everything else needed to complete the cards. Also included is the tutorial.

The cost of the kit is $35.00 and includes postage to anywhere in Australia in a tracked Domestic Letter Envelope.

To order your "card kit by mail", please click the "Buy Now" button.

 

 

Option 2 - PDF Tutorial

If you would like the PDF tutorial with all the measurements (Imperial) and the step-by-step trimming and die-cutting guide for each card, the cost is AUD$10.00. Click on the Buy Now button and you will be directed to my Google Drive after payment is accepted. 

 
Please note: my tutorials ARE NOT emailed - you will need to download the document to your device when it opens after payment. If you have any problems with the download, you can find a link on your Paypal Invoice. Payment is in Australian $$$ and payments accepted Worldwide - you can Google a "Currency Converter" for conversion rates for your country.

Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop - September 2020

Hello my stampin' friends 🙋

How chuffed was I to receive a message asking if I would like to be a Guest Designer for the Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop.

 
This month's challenge is a card sketch and I immediately had a dozen ideas.

 
I began by going through my scraps box and found pretty much everything I needed to get started - little bits that I had made for previous projects but didn't end up using - pays to always keep these for future projects.

I started with a standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card base, with a Whisper White mat piece 5 1/4" x 4", embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and mounted.

The square panels are Forever Greenery DSP on Whisper White and Just Jade mat pieces.


The watercolour washed and Gold Foil leaves were die-cut from the Stitched Leaves Dies. I added a wood accent from the In Good Taste Elements which I pressed onto my "retired" Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink Pad and set aside to dry completely before adding to the card front with a sentiment and gold thread double bow from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.

 I finished off the card with some bling from the 2020-2022 In Colour Enamel Dots.

Flowers For Every Season Card Kit

Today I have a new card making kit to keep you crafting at home! With most of us being in lockdown due to this awful time we are going through, this set of cards made with this gorgeous collection of floral papers is a great distraction. 



 Option 1 - Card Kit by Mail (Australia only)

There are nine (9) cards, each a different design, in the "card kit by mail" which includes:
  • 6 Whisper White and 3 colour card bases
  • 9 Envelopes
  • 1 of each of the 12 double-sided designs from Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper 


  • Inspiration Sheet
  • 52 die-cuts and punched flowers
  • 16 label die-cuts; and
  • all the mat pieces.
Your only choice is to decide which patterned paper to use!

So, grab your adhesive to assemble all the flowers, some embossing folders (I can't do all the work for you lol), stamp your greetings on the die-cut labels included and get lost in the beauty of these delightful floral cards.

The cost of the kit is $35.00 and includes postage to anywhere in Australia.

I anticipate the first orders will be mailed by week beginning 21 September 2020 and then on a weekly basis.
