Watercolour Christmas

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Onstage 2017 Spring Summer Catalogue 2018

So what do you do when its a bleak cold day and you find your self with an unexpected free afternoon?

Well for me there really only one option………

I lit the fire, made myself a latte and sat down to use this kit which has been calling out to me for the last few weeks.  Its the Watercolour Christmas Project Kit and I will be using it next week for a product class.

I think this is one of the best Xmas kits that Stampin’ Up! have released. I can see quite a few options to swap the layouts and sentiments if the matching stamp set is not your cup of tea. Personally I love it just as it is! However the best bit is you can make 20 cards for just £18.00. Yep you read it right its less than £1 per card……..


I loved the simplicity of the cards. Don’t you think the hints of gold from the mini sequins just finish this card off?


I added a little Wink of Stella to the stripes which took this card up another level


I have to say this layout was my favourite but it was a close call. Which is yours?


As you can see the fire is still burning and my coffee not long finished. Hardly surprising given it took me less than 60 minutes to make up the whole batch! Now I’m a hardy crafter and I was able to devote the whole hour to the project, but I can see this being a handy buy for anyone who wants to send handmade cards but doesn’t have much time


Even better news! We have free shipping from 11.00 pm tonight until 10.50pm Monday night. So if you order tonight you may well have this kit in your home by next weekend and your handmade card making plans are back on track!

Christmas in July – Swing panel card

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Christmas in July – Swing panel card

Happy first of the month to everyone.  Today’s card is final card from my recent class ad probably the most complicated. Having said that once you break the elements down its a really simple concept. DSCN3872

On the front I cut out the window frame before embossing the rest of the piece with the brick wall TEF to create a log cabin effect. I then loosely fussy cut another piece to create the stack of logs under the window DSCN3871

The window piece has the sponged scene attached to the back and when you open the card you start to see the effect. DSCN3870

Inside I used more of the elements of the new Carols of Christmas bundle which ia available to buy from today. Yes that’s right TODAY! DSCN3876

The bundle includes these really cute decorations and you can die cut the same shapes which I raised with the new mini dimensionals. No sticky snips anymore. My class attendees loved them. DSCN3873

So did you spot the sweet little holly sprigs? They were so easy to make and once I started I just couldn’t stop stamping and die cutting. Bu then again its a Christmas card so can you really have too much holly?
