I can’t believe that it is 4 weeks until Christmas and I’ve only made 17 cards for my own stash, so I’ve decided today that I had better get crafty. I did some calculations and need about another 43 cards – eeeeek!
My first card I made today I’ll be giving to my hubby for his birthday in December. The current challenge over at CASology inspired my design.
I used a stamp set from Unity CO Stamps called ‘Keep calm, have a beer’. I stamped the first image and then used a mirror stamp from So Suzy Stamps to create the second mug. I coloured them in with my SU Blends in daffodil delight and then used some puff paint for the foam tops. I created the sentiment on my computer and added it to a black base.
My next two cards have added to my Christmas card stash so now I’m down to 41 needed!
I created this card with the Painted Harvest set from Stampin Up stamped in Sweet sugarplum, Rose red and Bermuda bay inks. Nice and simple yet I think pretty.
The final card I created based on a tutorial I had seen over on Pinterest (sorry can’t remember who was the originator). I’m entering it for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
I created my own tree stamps using a die and some fun foam.
I stamped them three times using inks from Stampin Up in Lemon lime twist, Tranquil tide and Old olive. I used some Wink of Stella to give it that bit of sparkle and the sentiment is from The Ton set called ‘Mistletoe Kisses’. I used water-colour paper for the stamping which allowed the inks to blend when lightly spritzed with water.
I’m off to make some more Christmas cards. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
