Hello friends! Welcome to week eleven of the 2019 Heart of Christmas blog hop!
Last weekend I had the pleasure of an entire day spent making Christmas cards with my friend Jenny at my mum’s place – pure bliss! Take a look of the delicious scones and lemon tarts my mum served up in some of her vintage china. And yes, they tasted as good as they look!!!
Once we’d finished morning tea, I was very excited to finally crack open the Most Wonderful Time Medley and take a closer look at everything you get with this set.
There is so much product included in this medley, making it just perfect for when you’re crafting on the go. All you need to add is your trimmer, ink and adhesives, because the medley includes:
* an 11-piece Most Wonderful Time photopolymer stamp set
* 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
* 12 gold foil card fronts, 4 each of 3 designs
* 6 sticker sheets, 2 sheets each of 3 designs
* Gold/white tinsel trim, 10 yards (9.1 m)
* 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars
* 6-piece Most Wonderful Time Dies (these co-ordinate with the Most Wonderful Time photopolymer stamp set)
This very short video gives you a much better idea of just how much is included in this medley. I love the watercolour feel of this medley.
So what did I make with this set? I have to confess, I had so much fun playing with this set, I spent the whole day making cards with it and totally neglected my other stamp sets!
In fact, I made so many cards there are way too many to share in the one post, so I’ll just start with two of the cards today and show you the rest over the next few weeks.
I’m sharing this card first because it gives you a really close-up view of a lot of the stunning DSP that comes in this medley. And it’s a really easy design that you can use with any double sided papers.
To begin, I used the smallest square die in the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out the assorted DSP designs before adhering them evenly to a square card base.
The “Comfort and Joy” sentiment is from the Most Wonderful Time stamp set, stamped in black, then die cut with the next largest square die in the Stitched Shapes Dies. It was then mounted onto a pice of old olive card stock die cut with the next largest square die in the Stitched Shapes Dies.
A little gold facetted star from the medley adds the finishing touch to the card.
The other card I’d like to share with you today is one that features the same sentiment, as well as the tinsel and some of the stickers you get in the Most Wonderful Time Medley.
This time I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive and die cut using one of the square dies in the Stitched Shapes Dies. Again I mounted the sentiment onto a piece of old olive card stock die cut with the next largest square die in the Stitched Shapes Dies.
To finish my card off I simply used stickers and a tiny piece of the gorgeous tinsel that also comes in the Most Wonderful Time Medley. Can you see it under the holly stickers?
There are also tree and deer stickers that I’ll show you next time, but for this card I used the holly stickers to match the pattern on the DSP.
All of the cards I’ve created with this medley have been so very quick and easy – I can’t wait to share some more with you this week, so keep a look out for my next post.
