Customer Christmas Cards - Thank Goodness For My Stamparatus !

I have spent the last couple of days squirrelled away preparing for a huge mail drop over the coming week !   Yes it's that time of the year folks - the 2019 Spring/Summer Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Brochure is due for release on 3 January ! 

I have been working hard in preparation for this, to ensure that my customers who have shopped with me over the last six months will all be getting fresh shiny copies. 

Address labels have been printed, covering letter with news of the exciting Sale-A-Bration joining promotion and free Sale-A-Bration goodies has been prepared along with some pretty Christmas cards and a small but useful handcrafted gift ....... more about that next week (I intend to a Facebook Live demonstration).

Last year's customers received calendars, and this year's will be receiving something equally as useful, but weeny !!

I got my pre-order in too - and hope to be sharing some projects made with some of the fantastic new products over the next couple of weeks ....... so these cards are among my last Christmas projects for the year.

My Stamparatus was a blessing.  Mass producing cards can become something of a nightmare, unless you are well prepared and keep it just nice and simple.   I pre-cut and embossed my little layers, and die cut hundreds of snowflakes in different shapes and sizes using my Blizzard Thinlits Die.

It was then a case of stamping the sentiment on over a 100 card layers, and this is where I was able to make short work of that, by using the Stamparatus.   How on earth did we ever manage before the introduction of such innovative positioning tools ?

Anyway, that's it from me for today.  The craft room door has been firmly closed and I am picking up a paint brush today, sadly not for anything nice and creative - we are re-decorating in time for Christmas and working towards a deadline in time for the laying of new carpets !

Have a great weekend.

Bye for now,

Linda xx

A Simple Christmas Card with Wishing You Well from Stampin' Up!

Keeping it simple needn't be boring.   Take this simple pastel pink Christmas Card.  It's really about as simple as they come.

I stamped and heat embossed in white the pretty and simplistic Christmas Wreath and added a few rhinestone embellishments.  I stamped the sentiment in the centre and added a little more texture with some mini sequin trim and teeny tiny polka dot tulle bow.

The top layer was added to a layer of Whisper White card stock before being adhered to my Powder Pink card base.

It took about 10 minutes (if that).   I am planning to create a little stash of these in other pastel colours.

Hope you like it. 

It's very wet and windy here today - and I am planning on doing a little bit of gentle decorating, brightening up some dull yellowed doors with some bright white paint.

Do you have plans for a crafty weekend - or are you off Christmas shopping?  I am pleased to say I have done most of my Christmas shopping online this year.  Just need to order the turkey and trimmings.

Have a lovely weekend wherever you are.

Bye for now,

Linda xx

Touches of Texture with Friendly Expressions

I needed a Congratulations card, so naturally reached for my Friendly Expressions stamp set, because I just love the font style used for the set of sentiments.

I fancied getting all "stampy" for this one and the Touches of Texture two part stamp set was ideal.

I selected a distressed lacy stamp, the little bee and the gorgeous big splodgy flower and set about stamping all over my layer of Pool Party card stock in coordinating Pool Party ink.  The impression left by the lacy stamp is much lighter because I chose to stamp off onto a piece of spare paper before then stamping directly onto the card.

The sentiment was heat embossed in white and I added a little bow and some sequins for texture and "voila" !

The top layer is adhered to a piece of fun foam cut to the same size.

I like how it turned out.  Hope you do too.

Thanks for looking and come back soon!
