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.

Mini Tea Room Notecards

How cute are these? I love note cards, they’re always so quick to put together and because they’re smaller, you can make more of them from a small supplies of materials. I’ve never been one for flowery Designer Series Paper (DSP), I’m more of a stripes and spots person, or making my own by stamping backgrounds. But the tea room speciality paper drew me in and it was worth it.

My daughter chose to craft with me and she chose the butterfly paper, which in her words is the “prettiest from the pack”, and this co-ordinated with the GORGEOUS Rich Razzleberry, another fave colour of mine.

We kept our note cards simple, adding a simple sentiment on a punch out of Very Vanilla using the stamps from the Darling Label Punch Box. Same design, but different cards with each sentiment. Brilliant!

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
