Beautiful Baubles Christmas Card - Stamping With Shimmer Paint!

Beautiful Baubles Christmas Card 

Stamping With Shimmer Paint!



Beautiful Baubles Christmas Card Using Shimmer paint. Stampin Up


I absolutely love this stamp set. It comes in a bundle with dies and have SO many possibilities for using them. I decided to use the large bauble stamp to create cards for a swap group at a large team event I went to on Sunday.

Us demo's LOVE to swap. We take them along to events and come home with a bag, bursting with inspiration. We also get to make new friends and share ideas too. 

Stamping with Shimmer Paint


 I knew I wanted to experiment with the new Shimmer Paint that is in the new Winter Catalogue. There were 88 of us at this event! So we did swaps in small groups. This meant that I only had to create 6 of this swap - phew!


Stamping with Shimmer Paint



I poured a little of the Frost shimmer Paint into a small bowl, added a few drops of reinker in Cherry Cobbler until I had the desired colour. then, using a sponge, I applied it to the stamp. I stamped straight away onto a piece of Whisper White card. Don't be worried, it does wash off your stamp if you wash it off straight away.

 I used the Merry Mistletoe and Dashing Along Papers together with coordinating card , layered onto Whisper White to create the card bases. I cut out the baubles and layered them onto the cards with the sentiments which have been cut out of Whisper White using a circle from the Stitched Shape Framelits

The Shimmer Paint really shines. So pretty! I added some of the Mini Sequin Gold Trim to the baubles too, to give a little sparkle.

The sentiment inside from the same set is stamped in Real Red ink.

And for the finishing touch, I added Stampin Up's Statement Of The Heart on the back in Old Olive ink. I do love this stamp.

Coffee and Cards - Blow Out The Candles. Stampin' Up!



 Coffee and Cards - Blow Out The Candles!


How lovely is this stamp set! It is called Blow Out the Candles and it caught my eye a couple of weeks ago when I saw a card, a friend and fellow demonstrator had made. I loved it and knew it would be the perfect stamp set to have in my collection and would also be great for Coffee and Cards too.  Don't you just love it when that happens! 



Blow Out The Candles Birthday Card at Coffee and Cards


So this is the card I made for us for Coffee and Cards this week. This one is using Petal Pink card and ink with a little Pool Party.

And one I made in Pool Party. The great thing about this set is that it can be for anyone at all, just change the colours to suit. I have a couple of special birthdays this week 😀


Blow Out The Candles Birthday Card at Coffee and Cards


I left out the Doily on this one and just did a little sponging with a dauber behind the punched circles using the same Petal Pink ink.

This stamp set is so inexpensive too!

The ladies made these at yesterdays' Coffee and Cards.
Didn't they do a great job!

I might have to add in some Soft Suede or Early Espresso ink for the icing next time and have a chocolate cake!

Here are some from today's Coffee and Cards session. We have been very blessed with some beautiful sunshine today but it did get in the photo's a little.

No naked envelopes 😊 We stamped the gorgeous little cake and added the Clear Wink of Stella to the icing on those as well as the cards for a little sparkle. 

If you would like to see the card that inspired me, do hop over to Stacey Marsh's blog and take a look at her awesome work.

I really hope you like seeing what we have been up to a Coffee and Cards this week.

Celebrate!! You Are Amazing! Inspire Create Challenges #027


Celebrate!

You Are Amazing!


Celebrate You card, hand made congratulations card. Stampin Up


It's time for Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #027 and this time we have a Celebration theme!




There are all sorts of celebrations aren't there? Birthdays, new baby, wedding, anniversary, the list goes on. However, I had a different celebration in mind and I wanted to create a beautiful card that I could send to my team members 💕

Celebrate You card, hand made congratulations card. Stampin Up

There are so many opportunities with Stampin Up and I love to celebrate each and every achievement of my team. 

I can think of lots of other reasons to send this card too. It would be perfect for exam results, graduation, or getting a promotion or even to remind someone how great they are if they are having a hard time.


The Share What You Love papers are stunning aren't they?! 



Share What You Love Papers


You can shop them here, or by clicking on the clickable images at the bottom.

How It's Made


I started to create my card knowing that I wanted to use the Share What You Love Papers and the Celebrate You Thinlit dies and worked from there. I wanted to use layers of this gorgeous paper.  I have 4!  

The Celebrate You is cut out in Silver Glimmer Paper and then cut our twice more in Whisper White. I have layered them up using the fine tipped glue pen to give more dimension. 

The You Are Amazing is from the oh, so useful, Thoughtful Banners stamp set and I have used the coordinating Classic Label Punch which seems to be my "go to" punch this week. 


Celebrate You card, hand made congratulations card. Stampin Up


To finish it off I have used a little of the mini sequin trim and dotted some of the sequins across the card for a little sparkle.


Celebrate You card, hand made congratulations card. Stampin Up


I have simply added Celebrate from the same stamp set on Rich Razzleberry ink inside to leave lots of room for my message.

You can pop over to the Inspire Create Challenges here to see what the other talented members of the Design Team have come up with for this challenge and see the other entries too. It is great fun to join along and so easy to submit a card. All the instructions are there. You never know you could win, so do play along too.

Coffee And Cards - Tuscan Vineyard

Coffee And Cards - Tuscan Vineyard





Tuscan Vineyard card, Coffee and Cards, Tuscan Vineyard scene


Tuscan Vineyard is one of those stamp sets that I had always flicked past in the catalogue, not really thinking about it too much. It didn't really jump out at me at all. And then last week, one of the ladies at Coffee and Cards brought hers along and said " could we do something with this, one week?" Coffee and Cards is a simple (but beautiful), one layer card. So, I took it away with me and  after having a small play this was the card I came up with.

Tuscan Vineyard card, Coffee and Cards, Tuscan Vineyard scene


The little Tuscan Vineyard scene is lovely! And it lends itself beautifully to being coloured in with Stampin Blends alcohol markers. I stamped the image in Basic Grey before colouring in. The olive branches are stamped around the outside in Old Olive and blended with a blender pen to give them more depth.
I have stamped "celebrate" from another stamp set, Beautiful You in Old Olive on a scrap of Whisper White and punched it out with one of my favourites, the Classic Label Punch. I've raised it a few mini Dimensionals.


Tuscan Vineyard card, Coffee and Cards, Tuscan Vineyard scene


We get so much creativity at Coffee and Cards. This one has the grape vine stamped on to it and coloured with a Stampin Write Marker and blender pen. She has also added a sentiment "Just a note" This stamp came from the Soft Sayings card kit.



Tuscan Vineyard card, Coffee and Cards, Tuscan Vineyard scene



I stamped inside the card in Crumb Cake and again used a blender pen.

  I have lots of ideas in mind now, how it could be used. Sometimes you just have to play! 

One of my other ladies at Coffee and Cards also owns this stamp set and made me a beautiful birthday card with it last month.






How clever! I love it. It's sitting on my craft room shelf.
