Welcome to Week 13 of the Heart of Christmas blog hop.
This week I’m sharing with you a variety of cards I’ve made using Stampin’ Up!’s brand new “Christmastime Is Here Suite”.
This suite is not in the Holiday Catalogue, but you can order it online here.
All of the products in the suite can either be ordered together or individually. This video gives you closer look.
Yes this is a Christmas suite, but the DSP patterns and the rose themed stamps and dies are also ideal for a variety of cards, including Christmas, birthday, Mother’s Day, thank you and sympathy cards.
Card one is a “for you” card that I shared in a blog last week. Here it is again in case you missed it.
After stamping the rose image in Memento ink onto Whisper White card stock I used my marker pens in Rococo Rose, Mossy Meadow and Gray Granite to colour directly onto the stamped image and then I blended using the clear blender pen, NOT the stampin blends.
Card two uses exactly the same stamped image but colouring in with soft saffron and soft sea foam it gives it a totally different effect.
This time I made a square card and mounted the image onto a piece of Sahara Sand, embossed with the pinewood embossing folder.
I’ve also used the Gold 1/4″ (6.4 mm) Shimmer Ribbon and Gold Glitter Enamel Dots from the suite as well as branches die cut in Whisper White using the Frosted Bouquet dies.
I finished of with some Wink of Stella but did go a teeny weeny bit overboard, making my card very glittery!
Card three is a Christmas card that uses a piece of Let it Snow DSP, overlaid with vellum. I fussy cut the image from the Christmastime is Here DSP, before cutting it in half to sit either side of the “Seasons Greetings” sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas stamped in gold.
Red Rhinestones add a touch of bling and cover a smudge of ink!!!!
Card four uses two different patterns from the Christmastime Is Here DSP to make a birthday card that could very easily be used as a Mother’s Day card if I changed the sentiment.
I picked up on the Poppy Parade and the Mossy Meadow colours in the DSP and used my blender pens in these colours to colour in stamped flowers from the Tea Together stamp set. The teapot, cup and saucer were also stamped from this set and then all cut out using the matching dies.
The happy birthday sentiment is from the Itty bitty Birthdays stamp set die cut out with my stitched rectangle dies.
My final card is another one I shared with you last week and perhaps the most traditional of the lot – a Merry Christmas card.
I simply die cut out the image from the DSP , using the same die that I used to cut out my stamped rose in the other cards. Very quick and super easy.
