Merry Patterns by Stampin’ Up!

Well hello my friends! It has been a while, hasn’t it? How have you been? I do hope all is well. I’ve just looked at my blog and I haven’t posted since the end of July! Life has just been super busy of late. I took some time out though yesterday and cracked out the ink pads and stamp sets.

I just love this promotional stamp set, Merry Patterns by Stamping’ Up! which I recently got free with a qualifying order. Yes I do still buy my SU goodies, even though I haven’t had much time to play recently! Once a craftaholic, always a craftaholic!

Merry Patterns by Stamping' Up!

  • I started off by stamping the patterned reindeer onto watercolour paper and then smoothing the pattern out with a damp brush, before fussy cutting the reindeer out once it was dry.
  • The background is embossed with Softly Falling and the two circles were cut out using the Stitched Shapes framelits. The card front was mounted on to a Whisper White card blank.
  • I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with White embossing powder.

I love how the card came together and will probably make a batch of these as it was quick and easy to put together. Apologies for the blurry shot – I must be out of practice!

The stamp set is one of the items you can choose for free with orders over £250 until the end of October.

I do hope you like the card. Hopefully I will get the chance to make some more cards soon and I will make sure I take better photographs to post, I promise.

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Jingle All the Way from Stampin’ Up!

Clean and simple Christmas card using Jingle All the Way from Stampin’ Up!

Hi, just thought I’d pop back with a super quick post tonight – probably already tomorrow by the time you’re reading this. I made this card using the sketch a couple of weeks ago from Less is More. I didn’t enter the card to the challenge as I entered this one instead, but as I liked this one too, I thought I’d share it with you now. I used Jingle All the Way from Stampin’ Up! for the sentiment.

It’s a really quick and easy card – maybe that’s why I didn’t enter it in to the challenge as it was toooooo easy and no challenge at all! Ha ha!
