Glimmer Stockings


Hello there all!

Here's my last post before Christmas....had been kind of stalking our local Woolies for the green and red M&Ms for a while so when they finally got them in I got a big pack for this little project.

I had some of the new Red and Silver Glimmer paper (from the Summer Mini) which I hadn't cut into yet, so used for this purpose.   It is VERY glimmery :)

Punches:  Stocking builder Punch and largest Scallop circle punch

(Side Note:  We've been told that the stocking builder punch will not be carried over after this Mini Catalogue...so you have only until current stocks last to purchase this)

I'm sure you are all organised for tomorrow!

Just a few pressies to wrap tonight and I think we have everything
 under control - have gone for simple and unfussy this year.
I think that's helped to create a fairly peaceful atmosphere and less stress!

So for us, tomorrow's focus is on Jesus' birthday and celebrating this with our special peoples :)

Merry Christmas everyone!

Anna :)

Christmas Dasher and Trees



Here are the last 2 of the Christmas 'Stamp-a-stack' cards I have to show you.

The first uses the Pennant Parade stamp set and matching punch, as well as the Top Note die, the Heart-to-Heart Punch and the sentiment from 'Contempo Christmas'.

The second card uses the alacarte stamp 'Dasher' (only $14.95!) and the gorgeous Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon (this ribbon is so nice to use!)

What's your favourite Christmas colour combo?

Clean and Simple Christmas






Here are several versions of the same layout, inspired by the talented Danielle Daws. She makes terrific cards, and this year I've referred to her Christmas creations for inspiration.

The basic version of this card was make in a Real Red version (with matching satin ribbon) and an Old Olive version (with matching satin ribbon). Again we played with the Big Shot, and only used one sentiment stamp (this was from 'Contempo Christmas').

How are you going with your Christmas cards? Are you making them just for the select few, or going 'all out' and making them for everyone on your mailing list?

Christmas Baubles




It's about time I show some more Christmas cards, don't you think! :)

You'll see a handful over the next few days of cards we made at a recent 'Christmas Stamp-a-stack'.

We used the Big Shot for lots of textured embossing - I really like that machine! :)

Here's a 'blue' version and a 'cherry' version of the same card...which do you like better?

If you've stopped in, leave a comment even just to say hi! :) I've changed the comment settings so hopefully it's easier to leave them now...I've had feedback that it was so 'user friendly' before.

Ballerina Punch Art



Today's card was fun to make - this was for my niece who is a budding ballerina and had a birthday recently.

Sorry for the picture quality! (lack thereof! :) ) I didn't realise how fuzzy the photo was until I downloaded the camera...then, of course, the card had been long since posted off to it's intended....but I'm sure you can see enough to get the idea :)

Thanks for looking!

Punch Buggy




Hmmm..today is 11/11/11! Is this a significant date for you? It's Remembrance Day here in Australia when we pause to remember the fallen diggers who died in battle for our nation's freedom. Lest we forget.

Totally off the subject : I've had a chance to make a few cards lately, and most of them have been punch art. Punch art make fun cards and scrapbook pages....

Here's a Car punch art made up of oval, circle & the designer label punches. The DS Paper is retired, so too the rubons (found in my stash! ) and the jumbo silver brads are current.

Come back on Monday for some more punch art :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend whatever the plans :)

Petite Pockets




More in colours! Don't they look good all lined up in a row?! (you may have gathered that I LIKE the in colours!! :) )

New to the 2011-2012 IB&C is the 'Petite Pocket' Die and the 'Stripes' Embossing Folder & also the 'Houndstooth' Embossing folder. I've combined all three in these project (with all the groovy In colours!) to make some cute little notecard holders.

Inspiration for this came from Rosemary D (unable to link to her blog as can't read the watermark on her pic clearly)...she did a very similar project and I added it to my 'To Do' list :)

I used the stamp sets 'Everyday Wishes' and 'It's Your Day' in Basic Black. And the stamp set 'Button Buddies' with coordinating Scallop Circle Punch.

And aren't the Designer Printed Brads just pretty too? Love the whole matching 'thing' that Stampin' Up! does for us - makes coordinating products so easy!

Thanks for stopping in!

Everyone loves a freebie! Recently I was excited to receive the Triple Layer Doily Punch as part of a Stampin' Up! promotion - this was the first time I put it to good use!

What do you think of the new 'In Colours'? Aren't they fabulous?!

I really really like them - they work so well as a group and combined with other colours.

Here I've used:

Cardstock:
Whisper White, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade & Calypso Coral (cool names too! :) )
Punches: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, Doily Triple Layer
Other: Jumbo Brads
Stamp: Everyday Wishes

What do you think?

Punch Art Alien




Here's a fun punch art card I made for a little person turning the big '4'!

Not too many punches were needed for this - the Wide Oval,the Large Oval (for the mouth), assorted circle punches, and the 2 star punches (both now retired...sniff sniff :/)

The '4' was cut out using the Big Shot and the smaller alphabet die set currently available.

I have so many ideas for Punch Art characters...even a resource/reference book made up...I just need to USE them more often!

Thanks for dropping in!

The 'Fat Man's' Suit


Even though we don't acknowledge 'the fat man' as part of our Christmas celebrations, I thought I'd share with you a card I made by request for a Catalogue Party Project a little while back.

I also realise now I've shared my poor photography skills...you'd think I could centre the card! :)

Book yourself a catalogue party with me and you too can have a pack of make-n-take projects to share, and the chance to qualify for FREE Stampin' Up! goodies!

Window Ornaments


And...yet another Christmas card :)

Here I've used the Delightful Decorations stamp set, plus the matching ornament punch.

Throw in the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, the scallop trim border punch and you have a fairly quick card.

I've used Linen Thread and Rhinestones, and the colours used are:

Tempting Turquoise
Rich Razzleberry (yay!)
Old Olive


Just realised it's only a couple of months til Christmas...and I've done the big 3 cards for my stash...better get a wriggle on! :)

Anna :)

The Door



Here's another Christmas card example for you...quite simple...

After I punched out the centre of the scallop circle with another circle punch, I ran the 'wreath' through the big shot using the 'petals-a-plenty' embossing folder.

Add a bit of bling and ribbon, and...done!

Anna :)

p.s. to make the wreath: it's actually easier to punch the CIRCLE from the cardstock FIRST, then to punch the scallop circle punch SECOND, lining up the circle in the centre.
