Christmas Stamp a Stack Idea

Can you believe it’s only 10 days until Christmas??!!

Well if you’re needing an idea to make a lot of cards quickly here’s a stamp a stack idea.


How I made this card?

  • On piece of Whisper White Card Stock (A4, 8.5 x 11 or 12 x 12), using the Christmas Pines Stamp Set to stamp the branches, the thicker branch stamp is in Mint Macaron, the thinner branch is VersaMark then Emerald Envy Glitter Embossing Powder.  I stamped them randomly to cover the page.
  • I cut the stamped page into 3.5 in strips x  148mm (to match the half fold of my card base)
  • I cut another piece of whisper white to matte my card (148 x 105mm), I adhered this to the piece stamped with the branches with Tear & Tape
  • I used the Layering Circles Framelits Dies to cut the neckline of the whisper white pieces, I also embossed the pieces with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder
  • Card Base is Thick Whisper White Card Stock A6 (297 x 105mm scored at 148mm)
  • I adhered the embossed piece to the card base
  • The sentiment is from the Stitched with Cheer Stamp Set Emerald Envy, the banner is a separate 1in strip adhered together a Stampin’ Dimensional

I hope this gives you a helpful idea to get through your last minute Christmas card making.

Until next time… Happy Stampin,

CYCI#142 – Colour Challenge

This week I played along with Can You Case It’s Colour challenge.


Here is my card:


I wanted something simple,  I decided to use the Cable Knit Embossing Folder.


How I made this card?

  • Card base, Thick Whisper White Cardstock (210 x 148mm, Scored at 2.5in from either end)
  • The scalloped neckline is Smoky Slate cut with largest scalloped die from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies
  • The white neckline is Whisper White cut using two largest circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies
  • Using the second largest circle from the Stitched Shapes cut the neckline on the card base placed in the middle at the top, cutting through all three layers
  • Using the Cable Knit Embossing Folder, emboss both 2.5in sections
  • Adhere the scalloped and stitched pieces for the neckline using Tear & Tape
  • Finally I attached the Elegant Eggplant Enamel Shapes from the Regals Collection.

Until next time… Happy Stampin’,

#gdp064 – Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland, well I can only dream… as we are in for a hot Aussie summer Christmas.

My card today is to play along with the Global-Design-Project and Case the Designer, Connie Collins.


Here is my card:


I took inspiration from Connie’s card with the placement of the sentiment, the shape of the background image and the use of Marina Mist.

The colours I used were Emerald Envy, Marina Mist, Soft Sky and Mint Macaron. The stamp sets I used were Christmas Pines and Labeler Alphabet.

How I made this card?

  • Thick Whisper White card base (210 x 148mm, scored at 105mm)
  • Emerald Envy piece is 143 x 100mm
  • Background is watercolour paper cut to 138 x 95mm
  • The background is stamped with the snowflakes stamp from Christmas Pines using Versamark and White Embossing Powder, then I sponged Soft Sky and then Marina Mist over top trying to focus the colour where I had stamped
  • For the sentiment I used the bottle tag from the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies, in Whisper White, folding it over the watercolour paper piece
  • On a separate piece of Whisper White I cut out the second smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies
  • On the circle I stamped my sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set in Mint Macaron, I know it looks grey but that’s because I didn’t clean my the stamps properly but I like it, I think it works…
  • I added a piece of Emerald Envy Ribbon through the tag wholes
  • Finally I adhered everything using Glue Dots, Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope everyone is enjoying the festive season wherever you are.

Until next time… Happy stampin’,

  • Using the Christmas Pines stamp set I stamped the first layer of branches in Blushing Bride and over the top with the thinner looking branch stamp with Whisper White Craft.
