Tin Tile meets Merry Christmas To All

I am away at the coast for a few days and playing with some fun supplies.  I am holding a class on 11 December featuring the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing folder, so thought I would have a play with it.

Do you like this card? It is very pretty in real life.  It looks very complicated but came together quickly.  Below is the list of supplies I used.  If you click on a supply you will go to that item in my online shop. If you live in Australia, I would be delighted to be your demonstrator.

Have a great weekend!

Beautiful Dangling Bauble

I  joined the rest of the Avid Inkers team last weekend and we created several versions of this pretty card which was cased from American Demonstrator, Debbie Henderson.

The card was less difficult to produce than it looks and the champagne shimmer is beautiful in person. I will post pics of other projects  during the week.

Barn Door Cards

Earlier this week I held a class making cards using the Barn Door Bundle.  These interactive cards are great for a special occasion or a special person.

The card above is a simple swinging door card and uses the greeting stamps in the set.  I got this idea from Julie Davison.

Isn’t that a lovely message to send for Christmas?

The Colours are Real Red, Shaded Spruce (a colour added to the Regal collection in the recent Colour Renovation and a perfect one for Christmas) , Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Basic Black.  Memento Black ink was used for stamping and the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a retired one.

I will post some more cards from the class later in the week.  My friends really enjoyed the class and loved the cards.  My class next month features the Waterfront Stamp Set.

Dashing Along Designer Series Paper

Well, I’m a little late in posting some of the cards I have made using the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper.  In fact, I’m a little late posting altogether.  Bad blogger!  I made a selection of cards using a method of cutting Designer Paper I came across online.  I had to adjust it to our metric cardstock size, but I was pretty happy with the results and the cards came together very quickly, which is always good for Christmas cards.  I hope you like them.  I’d love to get comments on these cards.

I am planning on putting together a tutorial with metric measurements for the “card Maps”.  If you follow my blog in the next week, I will make this available to you as a way of saying thank you.  You can follow my blog by clicking on the symbol to the far right of the bottom footer menu on this page.

And if you’d like to get your hands on some of this designer paper, it is only available for a few more hours.  It is free to hosts who host a Stampin’ Up! party with sales over $450.

The first card uses 1 piece of the paper, cut and flipped. I added some Garden Green ribbon I purchased from the clearance rack last week and used my new stamp set “Feathers and Frost” for the greeting and flower.  I added a few pearls and ALL DONE!!

 

DashingAlongCard5StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan30092018

 

The second card uses just one piece of the paper, matted on a piece of White Card Stock.  I added a little Garden Green ribbon.  The greetings are again from the Feathers and Frost stamp set (I used the JOY stamp on almost all of these cards).  I also used the Layering Oval framelits and coloured a couple of Rhinestones with my dark Cherry Cobbler Blendie.

Card 3 was made using 1 piece of Paper which had a strip cut and flipped.  Again, ribbon, greetings from Feathers and Frost, this time the “to the world” as gold embossed on vellum.  The holly is from a retired hostess stamp set, which seemed just right for this card.  What do you think?

 

DashingAlongCard4StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan30092018

 

I made Card 4 with one piece of paper. Again, a strip of it was trimmed off and flipped and mounted onto a panel of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock.  Garden Green ribbon was combined with gold trim to reflect the gold embossed greeting, which was done with an old retired stamp set and matching punch, and a little circle mat of Gold Foil.

Card 5 is made with three strips of paper.  The greetings and Holly sprigs are from the Feathers & Frost stamp set.

 

DashingAlongCard2StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan30092018

 

Card 6 is the final one.  It was made using 5 strips of paper.  I added a greeting from another retired stamp set which I stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Gold embossing.  This was done using the Stamparatus to slightly offset the stamping.  I think this gave it an interesting look.  I used the Layering Circle framelits and added a little gold bow.

So you have a few hours to get your free Dashing Along Designer Series Paper.  I will be back soon to show you some more cards using the Feathers and Frost Stamp Set which is in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.

Christmas In July

I often hold a Christmas in July Event which gives my ladies a chance to get a head start on making Christmas Cards.  This year we will be using a set of Memories and More cards which are made for scrapbooking but lend themselves to card making very well indeed.  This card kit, called Merry Little Christmas, was released last year so is no longer available but as you can see, it is great for Christmas cards.  These kits contain lots of double sided cards in 2 sizes, stickers and printed acetate cards.  Many of the cards also have titles which can be used as greetings, so there is little need for stamping, which means the cards come together very quickly.ChristmasCardStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan12052018The event will be held on Saturday 21 July.  If you are interested in finding out more, click on the Contact Me button at the top of this page.
