Simple and quick Christmas card using the Feels Like Frost paper and Christmas Gleaming bundle
I needed to make a lot more Christmas cards and I still had loads of Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I hadn't really used the photographic side of the papers and discovered that it was a perfect way to create some pretty but simple cards VERY quickly!  Perfect!

#Elfie Sampler card

#Elfie cropped to create a sampler christmas card
Elfie is so much fun to colour that I just couldn't stop!  Then I cropped the images down and turned them into a sort of sampler.

The addition of some puff paint and a touch of Golden Glitz metallic paint (which, of course, doesn't show in the photo!) increase the impact.

Thank you for visiting.

Christmas Gleaming Table Favour

#thecraftythinker #stampinup #cardmaking #3D #christmastablefavor #xmastablefavor #brightlygleaming , Christmas table favor, Christmas Gleaming bundle, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
A Christmas table favor featuring a flower made from Christmas Gleaming baubles
These little table favours are very simple to make and perfectly sized to hold a Ferrero Rocher chocolate!  I saw cards featuring flowers made with the Christmas Gleaming bundle  and thought they would make very effective table decorations so I adjusted a Ferrero Rocher holder to a suitable size to support the flower.

We have two Christmas celebrations in my family .... well you can never have too much Christmas can you?!  So this is how I'm decorating the table for the second (smaller) celebration.

It's quite easy to make and I made four of them very quickly using a conveyor belt approach. I've included a tutorial below - just scroll down.  I used the Thick Very Vanilla cardstock to provide more support.

Thank you for visiting.

Christmas Gleaming - Bold Black and Red with Gold

#thecraftythinker #stampinup #cardkmaing #christmascard #goldenglitz #christmasgleaming , Christmas Card, Golden Glitz background, Christmas Gleaming Bundle, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
Dramatic Christmas card with black Golden Glitz background and Christmas Gleaming Bundle
Who remembers those watercolour backgrounds that I made with Golden Glitz metallic ink?  Did you think I'd forgotten to use the black one?!!

To a layer of Poppy Parade I added  a piece of Gold Foil Sheet that I'd embossed with the Stylish Scroll embossing folder followed by the black layer.  I then added a piece of Black Satin Ribbon and adhered it all to the front of the Basic Black card base.

I gold heat embossed the baubles onto Poppy Parade card and punched them out with the coordinating punches.  I sponged the edges with Real Red ink before gluing them to the card.  I painted on lines with Golden Glitz ink so that they appeared to be hanging.

The holly was gold heat embossed and then coloured with Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  I fussy cut the holly and then glued it to the card front.

Thank you for visiting.
