Last Christmas Stamp-A-Stack for the year…..

This past Thursday was my final Christmas Stamp-A-Stack for the year.

Here is the 1st card we made:

Solemn Stillness SAS

I’ve used the Solemn Stillness stamp set with the overlay done using Gold EP.

The colours used are Kraft, Bravo Burgundy, Blue Bayou and Very Vanilla cardstock along with Mellow Moss, Bravo Burgundy and Versamark inkpads.

I don’t often use Kraft but was very happy with this combination so must make a note to self to try and use Kraft more often.

Now the second card I’ve used my all time favourite stamp set ‘Season of Joy’. I’m so going to miss this set on Monday when it’s no longer available for purchase but at least I have mine. If you like it as much as me but still don’t have your own set then don’t miss out place your order with me by 9pm Sunday 30th November. I can have it shipped directly to you anywhere in Australia and you will still have time to make some last minute Christmas Cards……. You can place your order by email or phone on 02 9620 9092 or Mob: 0418 218 467

Now to actually show you the card:

Season of Joy SAS

This is a very quick and simple card but still very effective and definitely says ‘Christmas’.

I’ve used Real Red, Old Olive, River Rock and Very Vanilla Cardstock along with some Dashing DSP, Real Red Inkpad and a little bit of Real Red grosgrain ribbon.

This would make an ideal last minute card as it takes very little time and you can make multiples using just 1 sheet of the Dashing DSP along with your coordinating cardstock in no time.

Another creation using Holiday Harmony DSP

In my last post I shared all the items we created at my Christmas Extravaganza which was held last Saturday evening. I mentioned in the post that even after making all these items we still had some DSP left, so I decided to make this project I’m sharing with you today, which is another of Makeesha Byl’s wonderful creations she generously shares on a Demonstrator group each Monday and also uploads to her blog to share with all her readers.

Love Notes Christmas Box top

This project is called ‘Love Notes Gift Boxes’.

This project is made using 1 sheet of DSP, 1 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock, some ribbon, 4 Love Notes & envelopes, stamps, ink and embellishments if desired.

This is the inside of the box:Love Notes Christmas Box inside

The sides of the box is actually held together by the ribbon which on the inside holds the Love Notes in place.

There is still room for some choccies or other treat to be placed in the centre of the box before giving it to some lucky person.

Like to see the Love Notes??

Love Notes Christmas Box Cards

All the Love Notes have been decorated with the Season of Joy stamp set and coordinating colours. I’ve used some left over Holiday Harmony DSP on 3 of them (there is still plenty of DSP left I just thought the 4th card had enough) and I’ve stamped an edge of the envelopes to match.

I really love the colour combination for the Holiday Harmony DSP which is Always Artichoke, Purely Pomegranate and River Rock. It’s going to be a shame when I’ve made enough Christmas things but I’m sure I can put the colour combination to use with another stamp set or two…….

Now to work out what else I can make with the remaining Holiday Harmony DSP left. It’s surprising how far 1 packet of Designer Series Paper actually goes.

Remember the Holiday Harmony DSP, Season of Joy Stamp set and many other items in the Spring Mini Catalogue are only available till tomorrow. I’ll place my last order Sunday 30th at 9pm so if there is still something you would like let me know either by email or phone 02 9620 9092 or Mob: 0418 218 467
