Too soon for Christmas?
When it comes to card making, starting your Christmas cards early can help relieve the stress of rushing your creative card making during the silly season. Lucky for you I'm here to share a couple of easy cards you can make in a jiffy.
I love this photo my niece took of her sister and friend. I'm sure she won't mind that I copied it from her Instagram account.
Making the background for this page was so much fun. You never know how it will turn out and you can never create it exactly the same again.
A quick and simple card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #FMS356.
I chose to use the Thanks & Giving Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart for this challenge.
The Quokka, always happy to pose for a selfie and happy to share a bottle of water on a hot day. These little marsupials are the cutest little things. A few days after we visited Rottenest Island the news was all over a little Quokka named Steve who had escaped the island on a ferry. He was found a few days later and returned to the island. I can just imagine the adventure he had!
I created this gorgeous tag booklet for our Holiday Expressions Launch party. Not only was it a great way for me to display the new Fancy Tag set of metal dies but it is also made a great workshop for my customers.
This is my first ever entry for a sketch challenge. I hope to make them more regular, time permitting of course. Challenges are a great way to get some creativity flowing when you're stuck for ideas or want to try something new and see how it comes out.
This Sketch challenge is from CAS(E) this Sketch #290
The Boutique collection has some gorgeous stamps, papers and embellishments.
This simple card is made using the cardboard cut-out, "sweet", from the Boutique Compliments, the Bunches of Love stamp set and an acetate sheet. Often referred to as clear PVC front binding covers, available from places like Officeworks.
The acetate helps support the "sweet" cut-out and gives the card some strength.
Augusts stamp of the month is "For the Love of Crafting".
Its available only during August for $27 (+GST). When you spend $75 you can purchase this stamp for $7.50
Its such a gorgeous stamp and can be used on a scrapbook layout or card. I've made this card for a team swap using the Documented paper, bashful card stock and Cricut cut for the notepad background. If you have a Cricut you can open the cut file for the background and create your own here: Cricut Cut File
I love how easy these window cards were to make. During a 5 for 5 session (check out the events page for more info on that) a friend and I wanted to make something a little different. She spotted some window cards on Pinterest and we got creating.
Using circle thin cuts for the windows and scalpel and metal ruler for precision cutting the cassette tape out and acetate for the window, we ended up making these cards cute cards.
I've been playing with the Central Park Card-making and Scrapbooking stamp sets for classes and put together these two cards. This stamp set came with great timing, we've had two new neighbours move in recently so guess who's getting a card in their mailbox :D
This first card was made using the Central Park Scrapbooking stamp set and paper pack. Its a popular style of card right now. I've added a strip of Bashful glitter cardstock and tied some twine around it. The colour on the edge of the sentiment was created by scraping the edge over an ink pad. Its a great way to create a boarder without adding another layer to a card.
