Team meeting cards

Yesterday I attended a team meeting with my leadership from Stampin’ Up! And we did a make and take as part of the meeting. These are the cards we made all designed by North Shore Stamper. It was great and my first experience with a live demonstrator event.

A Peacful Pines card

This is pretty much a CASE from Pinterest except I swapped the original Night of Navy for Dapper Denim and I didn’t have the same sentiment stamp as well as for the sentiment I swapped the original Crumb Cake for Delightful Dijon. The card on Pinterest was from an unnamed upload photo so unfortunately I have no name for the original design but to be fair I am letting you know this is not my original design. I just love its simplicity actually. The main products used were peaceful Pines bundle and Softly Falling TEIF.

Destiny: Hawaii, Detailed Santa card

Some say some colours are not the proper colour choice for Christmas cards. You can bet they don’t have a best friend in Hawaii. I grew up in Hawaii and I know the tropical Christmas pallet and this is for my friend. Dare I say the longest friendship, which spans decades, I have ever had. I used the detailed Santa bundle on this one and my pallet includes Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black. Of course Santa is wearing shades nothing less would do!!!

Christmas Greetings from Father Christmas card

I can definitely say I love the stamp set Father Christmas!!! This one was simple and easy!!! It uses two colours of card stock Sahara Sand and Cajun Craze. The ink is just Cajun Craze. There is some fussy cutting involved but easier than some stamps I have cut out in the past. The raised elements are mounted on Stampin’ Dimensionals everything else you can use your choice of adhesives. Really fun to make card.

Delicate Ornaments on Christmas Pines card

This is a remake of a card I made a few months back but was not happy with. I’m happier it turned out better this time. Features Christmas Pines stamps, Delicate Ornaments and Christmas Greetings thinlits dies. The foil sheets are the retired red, gold and silver. (Last two not retired). Card stock is Cherry Cobbler and Pear Pizzazz.

Merry Medley with Pretty Pines Wreath card

I got the gist of this card from a photo someone shared on Facebook but although I loved the concept it wasn’t exactly what I wanted to do so I’m just presenting it my way. From the holiday 2016 catty I used Merry Medley background stamp, the Pretty Pines thinlits dies and the 3/8″ Silky Taffeta Ribbon Combo Pack in Cherry Cobbler. Then I used some retired stuff such as the Cherry Cobbler enamel dots I decorated the wreath with and I used black chalkboard paper which isn’t really necessary as from what I hear Basic Black card stock works too. Then I really went against the grain using another brand of white pigment ink instead of Stampin’ Up!’s Kraft White ink and I’m just not willing to cough up the money for SU pigment ink with a full ink pad of perfectly good pigment ink I already have. Now having said that back to Stampin’ Up! The card stock used is just Pear Pizzazz and Cajun Craze. I think this is my favourite Christmas Card so far!

Festive Trees Christmas card 

This card is made with a lot of retired stuff like the tree punch and the stamps used. But everything else is still available. I used both the This Christmas and Warmth & Cheer DSP as well as the card stock and ink in Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green. Finally I embellished it with enamel shapes. It’s a fairly simple and easy to make card and I really love the monotone idea!

Peaceful Pines Christmas card

Everything in this card except for the retired gold glimmer tape is from the big Annual catalog. I used the Peaceful Pines framlits on This Christmas DSP and for the sentiment I used the Christmas Greetings thinlits and the word Christmas from a retired set which I can’t off the top of my head remember but really any set with the word Christmas would work. The star on top of the tree is from a retired punch with gold foil. I used Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla card stock and Cherry Cobbler ink. Finally I embellished it with gold metallic stars from the Metallics Shapes. If I didn’t have the gold glimmer tape the gold strips could be cut from gold glimmer paper and there are other still available options for cutting the star.

Peaceful Pines meets Starlight dies. 

For this Christmas card I combined the peaceful pines bundle with the starlight dies. The tree is actually the sentiment. I also used This Christmas DSP and Copper foil. The basics I used were Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Garden Green card stock and Garden Green ink.
