Box in a Card Christmas edition

Featuring: Box in a Card, Christmas 3D, Stampin Up, Year of Cheer specialty paper, Musical Season

Do you remember my previous post on Box in a Card??
You can find it click here.with all the details on how I made it.
Some clever people even use our clear acetate Tiny Treat boxes p.195 of the main catalogue, which I think sounds like a great time saver idea!

I decided I would make one using some of Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock and decorated with Year of Cheer Specialty dsp.
Stamps from Musical Season.

 Year of Cheer Washi Tape has been used to border the paper, card and box.
Silver accents with Swirly Snowflake thinlets,
Pretty Pines thinlets
Silver foil doily
Silver ribbon.

I have Mixed my Metals again..
Silver and Copper.
The words have been embossed with the beautiful Copper embossing powder.
And don't you just love the Bow builder Punch? So easy to make this bow.

Box removed from the insert

This stops it from sliding open too much. You can write on the back of the card.

This makes…

Easy Quilted Christmas

Featuring: Quilted Christmas dsp, Gold foil doily, Musical Season Stamp, Christmas card, Stampin Up
The Quilted Christmas designer paper was one of the very first items I bought from the Holiday Catalogue. And I still believe it is one of the easiest to work with. With limited supplies you can easily create a multitude of different cards.
This is just cutting out the Green Star Quilt design and layering on different paper. Using a Real Red Card stock base and Gold Foil matt.

I have added some gold cord and Gold Foil doily.  The greeting is from Musical Season stamp set embossed with gold embossing powder onto red cardstock.

A shiny red foil snowflake from Swirly Snowflakes thinlets sits in the centre.

and some more "wildlife photos"... of interesting birdlife... have you seen these before?
We saw these Oyster Catchers in a large group on a beach at Thames when were over in New Zealand recently. Look at those long orange beaks. Obviously good for prising open the oyster shells…

Winter Wonder and Musical Season Mixed Metallics cards

Featuring: Mixed Metallics, Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Musical Season, Musical Instruments Framelits, Year of Cheer Specialty designer paper, Christmas, Stampin Up.

Have you seen the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (phew what a mouthful!)...I call the 'Giant Snowflake' for short. hehe.

This embossing folder is a bit hidden away on page. 37 of the Holiday Catalogue. But it is very impressive.
I have used our Fine Tip Glue Pen to carefully add glue to the snowflake and then sprinkled some of our Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on.
Allow to dry and you have a Glittery Snowflake to use on your card.

Here are two examples for you using Musical Season Stamps and Musical Instruments Framelits.
Our thick whisper white card stock is perfect for card bases.
I have mixed copper and gold accents in this card.
Snowflakes are from Swirly snowflakes thinlets.

This time I mixed Gold and Silver accents. Lots of shiny, sparkly goodness. Loving the metalli…

Hearts come Home cards

Featuring: Hearts come Home, Merry Music Specialty dsp, Merry Little Christmas dsp, Starlight edgelits, Stampin Up, Christmas Cards

This is what I call an 'organic card'. It starts with an idea or an element and I just keep adding or subtracting until I think it is finished. haha. Do you ever start a card that way???

This card all started with the silver embossed branches on the black and white Merry Music designer paper...
then I had to think of what to put with
Hometown greetings edgelits seemed to work beautifully
The words at the bottom are actually just cut from the Merry Music Specialty paper too.

The card base is Old Olive and black matt with Merry Little Christmas dsp.  I placed silver card behind the church and house so it looks like lights shining through when the light hits it. So Pretty.

and as a bonus card...
another Hometown Greetings edgelits dies card.
Do you like the gold card embossed with the  Softly Falling embosssing folder?

 I went a bit crazy …

Christmas Wreath Card

Featuring: Leaf Punch, Year of Cheer Specialty dsp, Christmas Wreath, 3D ornament, Musical Season, Stampin Up

How about a card and a gift in one!
This card has a detachable Christmas Wreath Ornament you can hang on your tree.
I have used our beautiful Year of Cheer Specialty dsp and a gold embossed greeting on the front.
This will still be an elegant card when the wreath is removed.

The Wreath is made cutting a circular frame from the two largest Stitched Shapes Framelits. I then glued my leaves punched from the Leaf Punch (holiday catalogue) on the circle frame.

To decorate the Wreath I used small flower punch (retired) -but we do have small flower shapes in various Thinlet sets you could use.
small star punch (retired) and snowflakes from Seasonal Layers Thinlets.
Bow from Pretty Pines Thinlets
Pearls and thin gold sequins.

There is a hole punched through the front of the card for the Wreath Ornament thread so it can be easily detached from the card. I used Washi tape to hold it in p…

Swirly Snowflakes

Featuring: Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits, Quilted Christmas designer paper stack, Stampin Up, Cardsonthetablewithvicki

Decided to cut out some more images from the Quilted Christmas designer paper stack.
I felt this design called for a square card.

Once I had done my cutting and gluing I decided to add some swirls and snowflakes from the Swirly Snowflakes thinlits (p.35 Holiday Cat.)
Don't you think they look like 'lace' around the edges? So delicate.

And to finish it off I added one small cut out piece to the very centre of the snowflake with a metallic enamel adhesive star (yes we do sell them p.196 main catalogue).

For the inside I used Star of Light p.122 main catalogue.

and finally a few more photos from our weekend away in Stanthorpe. Giraween National Park.

Clem wants to come back and climb that next time.!
 Can you spot the grey kangaroo? He was big. Close to 2 metres. We didn't stay long.

Have a great day. Thanks for stopping by. Vx
