The launch of the Stampin’ Up! Autumn/Winter catalogue last month has really sparked my festive creativity. Now I know it’s not for all of you, you don’t like to start until at least mid November but in my eyes, the earlier the better, things get so hectic as we near Christmas that to have your cards ready and prepared for sending by the beginning of December is a good plan which leaves the rest of the month to finishing off your shopping and wrapping!
So today I’m sharing a really simple card, created using a stamp set called “Stitched with Cheer”. I love, love, love the snowflakes in this set, there are three in total and love how you could just create a whole background with these stamps alone.
I have teamed Whisper White with Mint Macaron and a smidge of gold. Now I wasn’t really a gold person, personally found Silver more to my taste but Gold has grown on me of late.
I recently had a good tidy up of my workspace and invested in a few gold accessories to make my desk look pretty rather than messy lol! Maybe I will share a picture??
I created a simple tag using a rectangle of whisper white cardstock then snipped off the corners to create a tag shape. I added some of the gorgeous Gold twine to make a bow then used my handy Cookie Cutter Punch to cut some teeny little hearts from Gold Glimmer paper. I have to say the new Precision Glue is perfect for sticking down tiny punch outs or embellishments.
This stamp set “Stitched with Cheer” has been designed to co-ordinate with the co-ordinating Project Kit, see below
and I also love that the little holly and berries can be punched out using the Holly Berry Builder Punch. I just love how Stampin’ Up! make it easy for us to craft and produce professional looking projects.
