Christmas Star Card using Home for Christmas by Stampin’ Up!

Christmas Star Card using Home for Christmas by Stampin’ Up!

I’m certainly getting better at using up DSP (designer series paper) these days. I’ve almost used up two packs from the Stampin’ Up! ® Autumn/Winter Catalogue, which is unheard of normally (I just think it’s too pretty to cut up!). I used a whole pack of the Merry Moments DSP with my class last month, making Christmas Crackers. I will post the tutorial for you in a day or two!

Today’s card is one I made using the Home for Christmas DSP. I made two very slightly different versions of this card. I think I prefer the one with the Linen Thread and larger stars.

This was the first card. I used the Gold Metallic thread but think it’s too fine. So I made this version instead..

I think I prefer this one! What do you think?

Home for Christmas – Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper

Cute Bambi on Gorgeous Grunge snow created using Home for Christmas – Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper!

So now I’ve written the title I have Chris Rea echoing round my head with Driving Home for Christmas. It’s the first song that sprang to mind when I saw the name of the cute reindeer and santa Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper – Home for Christmas – in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue. And it’s the song that springs to mind every time I see it. You will probably realise over time (if you follow my blog or Facebook or Instagram pages) that certain words or sentences make songs pop into my head! Then they stay there, often very annoyingly, for a few days. Actually it’s probably more annoying for the people around me, who hear my tuneless wailing of these songs.

Actually, I got carried away and made seven of them in total! Isn’t it cute? I didn’t realise when I made this card, that I must have accidentally CASE’d Jennifer McGuire. I had seen her video a few weeks before I made this card, but I didn’t twig until a few days afterwards. Oops – thanks for the inspiration though Jennifer. I still had to share my card as it’s so cute.

I cut the cute little Bambi dear out of the Stampin’ Up! Home for Christmas designer series paper. This paper is lovely. The little Bambi has to be my favourite pattern though. I’ve seen so many cards with these little dears cut out now. They’re certainly very popular.

The “snow” was created by stamping one of the ink splurges from Gorgeous Grunge in Versamark a few times in the same place, then heat embossing with white embossing powder.

I hope you like the card. Thanks for stopping by.
