Merry Merlot and the absolutely gorgeous Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper (DSP) make another appearance on the blog today. They are both highly addictive craft materials and once you start, you just can’t stop crafting with them. This time I have teamed them with the amazing double sided Copper and Merlot ribbon & the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper. WOW!

The foiled snowflakes on this piece of DSP really set the card alive and I wanted them to be the main focus of this card. The only things I added were a small piece of ribbon to set behind my sentiment, punched out and bordered with Glimmer.

For the sentiment, I used the Flourish Filigree stamp set and fussy cut around the shape to allow a border of glimmer to peek from behind it. The double sided ribbon adds the final touches to the card.

Let me know what you think.

Merry Merlot Christmas

20181005_124926915_iOS

A very simple card on the blog today, one to make if you’re running out of time or perhaps want to mass produce them for family / friends. This card takes just 3 supplies plus ink and adhesive. Amazingly quick to make and can be reproduced in a number of colour ways!

I chose to showcase Merry Merlot, a lovely reddish purple colour which is just perfect for the Festive Season. Teamed with the Specialtyย Designer Series Paper, Joyous Noel – which features a gorgeous foiled effect.

To add a little ‘something’ to this card, I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of vellum. This not only added an extra layer and texture to the card, but it provided some masking of the background to make the wording stand out a little more. I absolutely love it!

Hope you have enjoyed this.

Best Wishes,
Suzanne

How gorgeous is the deer on this card? I couldn’t wait to use it when I first opened the stamp set but wasn’t sure what to do with it. Doing my usual browsing of Pinterest and other craft forums, I came across a card from a fellow demo Karen McClure using the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (DSP). Unfortunately, the Dashing Along DSP was only available for a limited time as part of an offer in September, so I decided to make my own interpretation with products still available in the current catalogues.

Combining tone on tone with the beautiful die cut from the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies is absolutely gorgeous and I think everyone would agree that the combination of Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake suits the festive season perfectly.

What do you think? Are you a fan of the deer?

Candy Canes Everywhere!

20180930_161200451_iOS.jpg

Am I too early to be showing so much Christmas? Have any of you started your Christmas shopping yet? Or are you one of those who leave everything until Christmas Eve and do it last minute? Christmas is one of my favourite times of year, I love the lights, the glitter, the food – of course! And I absolutely LOVE gifting Christmas treats to my work colleagues, candy canes are a staple amongst those treats.

The Candy Cane paper from the Santa’s Workshop pack alongside the Candy Cane Season bundle are brilliant together. They make life easy for you and putting them together is as easy as pie. For an extra bit of glitz, I added some glimmer to mine as well as a doilie.

Let me know if you’re a fan of Christmas or if you’ve made any Christmassy projects.

Best Wishes,
Suzanne

Real Red Santa Sack

071018 - Real Red Santa Sack

Ho! Ho! Ho! Could I pull of being Santa? No? Ok, I’ll stop. But what I won’t stop doing is making these GORGEOUS Santa Sacks. In the Autumn / Winter Catalogue this year, the inclusion of the Santa Bags instantly made my eyes light up. They are absolutely adorable and so easy to stamp on.

I decided to change the string on mine so that I could include a co-ordinating ribbon. They are so cute when plumped up with items – a handy size for sweet treats, smellies, bath salts / bombs?

Now I’m off to make some more, I’m addicted!

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
