My 4 Favourite Christmas Products

I think the 4 products I have used most from the Christmas Catalogue are featured on these cards - The Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamps, Cookie Cutter Punch, Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and Tin of Tags stamp set - endless possibilities, and they all work so well together....and they are pretty cute too! We are making these in my Stamp-a-Stack classes this week.

Seasonal Bells

It's Christmas Stamp-a-Stack week this week! I've been running these classes since July and I can hardly believe that this is our second-last month. The calendar tells me that it will be November next week, but it hardly seems possible. We are going on a 3-day cruise to celebrate my Mother-in-Law's 80th Birthday this weekend, then next week I head up to Brisbane for Stampin' Up!s OnStage event, back in time for my hubby's birthday, to then host my Mother-in-Law's 80th Party, then it's classes and team meetings, Jacob's 16th birthday, my team Christmas Party and then full-speed into Christmas. Phew!!
I love Navy, White and Silver for Christmas, and I think it works well for these beautiful bells. If youre panicking about getting your Christmas cards made, these designs would be very easy to replicate. There's no wastage either - one card uses the oval cut-out and the other uses the oval itself. The silver bows are attached with a mini glue dot.

Sweet Strawberries

I have another Easy D-S-Peasy card to show you today. I'm not one of those people who hoard their DSP...I actually love chopping into it and giving it a purpose, rather than having it gather dust on my shelves.
How sweet are these strawberries? To make this card, I attached the stripy pattern to the strawberry pattern and then punched a circle out of the right hand side. That created the perfect spot for my sentiment. I raised my panel using dimensionals to accentuate the effect.
A piece of Cucumber Crush Baker's Twine and a fussy-cut teeny strawberry finish it off nicely :)

Sparkly Paisleys

Just a quick one from me today, as I wrap up one event and get ready for the next one! My "Get Ready for Christmas" Day yesterday was a big success, and I have lots to show you from that (once I get my act together and TAKE some photos!) but in the meantime, here are some sparkly paisleys to brighten up your Monday!

This was my first play with the Real Red Glitter Embossing Powder. Just stamp in Versamark, sprinkle on the powder, blast with your heat tool, and...instant wow! It shows up beautifully on dark cardstock (I've used Basic Gray), or any colour really. I wish I could show you how sparkly it is in real life. It also co-ordinates perfectly with the Real Red Glimmer Paper, as you can see from my 'enjoy'.
My black enamel dot is actually a White Perfect Accent, disguised with the help of a Black permanent marker :)

Paisleys and Seasonal Masks

I've been playing with the Sponge Brayers again, this time with the Seasonal Decorative Masks. I grabbed a bunch of autumnal colours - Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe - and a dash of blue - Dapper Denim. I used the Sponge Brayers to apply my colours through the stencil. I love how the colours mix and blend a little.
I've used the same colours to watercolour the Paisley image (stamped and embossed with white embossing powder).
Copper matting and thread is the perfect complement to the colours in this card, and adds just the right amount of glitz.
