CAS(E) this Sketch #248

Hey Everyone

Sundays seem to be my most common day to craft.  After making design team cards, I usually try and play along with a challenge.  I’ve chosen this weeks sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch for my card – isn’t it a cool one?

It seems that Christmas has done the usual thing and snuck up on me again.  It’s only 34 days until Santa arrives so I’ve used this weeks sketch to another another card to my collection.

Santa’s Sleigh is a stamp set I really haven’t inked up much. I felt it was time to give this reindeer, Christmas tree and presents some time to shine on my card.  The sentiment is also from this set.  My reindeer and presents are fussy cut but the Christmas Tree is cut with the matching Santa’s Sleight Framelits.  My images are all stamped with Black Memento Ink and I’ve coloured the images with a combination of retired Blendabilities and Stampin’ Up Blends.

The designer series paper that I’ve used is from Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  I really need to get stuck into some more cards to use up this gorgeous pack before it retires.

Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.

October Christmas Class

Hey Everyone

I LOVE Christmas time and I LOVE my Christmas classes.  While I was on holidays recently I made the following projects for my class girls.  There’s quite an overload of photos, so I hope you’re ready for them!

Stampin’ Up! Pizza Boxes are the coolest and most easiest boxes to put together. We made 4 simple gift cards to put in the boxes to give to someone as a gift.  The designer series paper I’ve used is from Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  I’ve added a thin strip of Basic Black cardstock on the front the gift cards and box.  The sentiment is from Better Together and I’ve punched them out with my Pretty Label Punch.  To add a little bling (but not too much, as not everyone keeps handmade cards) we added a black sequin.

For the front of the Pizza Box, I cut some white trees cut with my Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.  For a different look, some of the girls cut Old Olive trees – both looked fabulous I have to say.  I also added a strip of Basic Black cardstock and some Black Bakers Twine.  Oh and as always, a black sequin.

We also made two simple cards using the same designer series paper we used on the Pizza Box and gift cards.

My first card uses a strip of DSP from Be Merry Designer Series Paper on the side of my card.  I added some Old Olive trees that were cut with my Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.  I then cut the sentiment with my retired Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies.

For our second card, I layered Old Olive trees cut with my Santa Sleigh Framelits Die, a circle, a Pretty Label Punch with a sentiment from Holly Berry Happiness.  To tie in with the other card I used a strip of DSP, Basic Black cardstock and Black Bakers Twine.  A simple black sequin finishes this card off.

 

 

You will probably remember this card I made for our 300th sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I love this card and I think the girls did too!

I think Bundle of Love Speciality Designer Series Paper works really well for Christmas and for our class, I also made a pink one below, to show that Christmas doesn’t always need to be red and green.

Thanks for stopping by.
