with GLIMMER! Holy Moly, how LONG has it been since I made a real Christmas card? A LOOOONG time….Months I’m sure…well here you go! I’ve used the Print Poetry DSP stack form the Mini Catalogue and the Happy Hour stamp set here. Take note too of the CHAMPAGNE glimmer paper in the CHAMPAGNE glasses! I’m just too funny, I know it….!

The second project that I made for the Cyberstamp was a sketch Challenge. I chose to make a Christmas card, and Non-traditional colours too! I’ve used the Birds of a Feather DSP and the Wacky Wishes Stamp set here:
Colours are Island Indigo, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit and Whisper White. What do you think of these colours for a Christmas card? Different at least!
Make sure you come back tomorrow, I have a ONE DAY SALE happening for my BIRTHDAY!!!
Time for another pair of Christmas cards! I’m trying to keep up with making a couple per week so I don’t have a mountain of them to make late in the year. This card was CASed almost exactly from Pinterest. I changed the greeting and the ribbon, and added some background stamping, but all else is the same:
Then I made another one swapping out the colours:
Which one do you like better? I’m a purple fan, so my fave is the top one.
It’s time for some more Christmas cards! This card was inspired by one on Pinterest. I changed up the greeting, the colours and the embossing folders, and I just love these! This first one uses Pool Party, Black and Silver Glimmer Paper with Pool Party Seam Binding:
This one of course has the same layout, but uses Raspberry Ripple, Gold Glimmer paper and the stitched satin ribbon:
These greeting both come from the Jolly Jingles Wheel, which I unmounted, cut up and mounted on our cling foam. Which one do you like better?
I’ve made yet another set of twin Christmas cards here for my collection in the cupboard. This one uses the Pop up Posies kit from the Seasonal Catalogue. The kit comes with White and Yellow brads for the flower centres but I dipped this one in my Cherry Cobbler ink pad to make is match better. I’m loving this but I’m thinking it won’t mail very well. Might have to be a hand delivered one.
The greeting is from Word Play, and the Crumb Cake tag is also from the Pop up Posies kit.
It’s a bit later than last year, since I started off my Festive Friday series in January last year. That said, with as many Christmas cards as I have to make each year, I’d best start early if I’m going to get there in time. When I made Christmas cards I ALWAYS make at least two at a time, so there is a twin of this one sitting in the cupboard, starting off my collection for this year (along with about 20 extras I had leftover from last year too!)
This card was (once again) inspired by Pinterest. I’ve used the Be of Good Cheer DSP and the Happy Hour stamp set. The little berries are done with the Dazzling Details glitter glue.
This is my absolute favourite card in the whole kit. I might just mass product this one for next year! I also love the photo I plopped in there. This was taken on New Year’s Eve.
I just added the rhinestones to this one.
With tomorrow being Christmas, I thought I’d show you the final Christmas card that I have in my stash. I wanted this one to be shimmery, and “delicate” so I made some ornaments out of vellum, one of my least used mediums. I also went for very non-traditional colours, using Primrose Petals in Monochromatic shades, and some Champagne Glimmer Paper. I used the Snowflake Embossing Folder to give an accent to the vellum as well. What do you think?
This will be my final Christmas post for the year. Going to take a few days off to spend with family, then will be back with a creative Vengeance in the new Year. I Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
This card was made in my final push to get the Christmas cards done and sent out. I’ve used Crumb Cake for the base, Pool Party, and Very Vanilla for the rest. I’ve used the Ornament Piercing Template for a little dimension on the ornaments too.
Sorry I missed out posting yesterday…the day got away with me, with the kids home for Summer Holidays, we were having too much FUN!
I’ve chosen Kerrie’s card this week as the winner, I love the little acorn stamp! Thanks for playing along!
