One Christmas Tree, 3 looks!

One of the things I love about creative people is that everyone has their own style. Out of my crafting friends I can usually pick out their work.

With this in mind I thought it would be fun to show you three cards using the same bundle but all with different styles! I would LOVE to know which one is your favourite!

All three cards were made using the Ready For Christmas Bundle

I focused on the tree.

For this simple card I stamped Very Vanilla card stock in black using the Sheet Music background stamp and added Red Glimmer Paper die cut accents.

 

This contemporary look was achieved with Silver Glimmer paper and Merry Little Christmas Designer Series paper.

This uses Garden Green and Real Red for a more traditional feel.

Photopolymer love

I’m so excited that Stampin’ Up! have introduced photopolymer stamps to their collection! Don’t worry, our clear & wood stamps aren’t going anywhere.

Benefits of photopolymer stamps include:

  • You can see exactly where you’re stamping, great for 2 step stamping
  • They are flexible, bend those sentiments to suit your projects!
  • you can mount several stamps on one block, making quick and speedy backgrounds
Anyway, enough of the talk, here’s a project made using the Show & Tell sets 1 & 2
Even better news, you can choose 1 set of photopolymer stamps absolutely FREE with every £60 you spend on any current catalogue items. I must warn you, they are selling very fast.
Offer ends 31 May or while stocks last.

Coffee to go

Not only is the Stampin’ Up! catalogue full of gorgeous products to drool over it’s also a great resource when your ‘creative’ juices aren’t flowing. Stampin’ Up! even provide a list of products that are used to create the projects in the catalogue. You can find it right here

So today’s project is my take on the Coffee Bag project on page 36 of the catalogue. I didn’t copy it exactly but sometimes an idea is just a spring board to your own creation. I didn’t have any coffee beans to hand so that meant a change of design right away!

For this project I used the following Stampin’ Up! Supplies.

Stamps
Gorgeous Grunge
Perfect Blend
Inks
Early Espresso
Card Stock & Paper
Whisper White
Real Red
Early Espresso 
Brown Sugar
Coastal Cabana
In Colour Designer Series Paper Stack

Other Items

Essential Hardware clips
Dimensionals

White bakers twine
I used my digital die-cutting machine to make the bag.
