A few of my friends have mentioned wanting to start making Christmas cards so I’ve started creating so that I can have a class next month. Christmas in July? Why not! Here’s one of the new sets in the annual catalog – Merry Mistletoe along with the new Be Merry designer series paper.

Liz Bailey Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Merry Mistletoe - Be Merry DSP

It’s a very simple card – a whisper white card base with a piece of the new Be Merry designer series paper on top. I then heat embossed the fun deer in gold onto more whisper white and gave it a gold foil border. Easy and really elegant. My sister who is visiting has told me that she’ll be upset if she doesn’t get this one for Christmas. I feel a challenge to come up with one she’ll like even more!

And apologies for the delay in posting; I had some rather surprising and unexpected medical news which necessitated a wedge biopsy of my lung. This occurred on Saturday and although I had set up some posts in advance, I wasn’t up to photographing and sitting at my computer even though I had cards prepared. So normal posting should reoccur now that my incision is healing nicely. If you want to get updates about my condition, a friend of mine with my sister have set up a website, https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/lizbailey

I’ve had the High Tide set for a while now and it just hasn’t made it to the top of the stack. I can’t explain that – it’s a great set and has some awesome sayings. I decided to use the same layout again and this saying was just the right shape for the card! Do you do that? Sometimes select a sentiment because it fits in the space correctly? It always makes me laugh when I do that.

Liz Bailey Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - High Tide - Delightful Daisy DSP

This uses a large piece of paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP – 5 /14 by 4 inches on a night of navy base. I then made the top pieces – a piece of whisper white which “looked right” – 1 3/4 inches to be precise and stamped the awesome sentiment in more night of navy on one side so that the beautiful crushed curry mini chevron ribbon bow would fit. I also used crushed curry as the matting for the piece of whisper white; despite the yellow in the DSP actually being daffodil delight, it’s been watered down to get the watercolor effect and the actual card stock is just a touch too much in my opinion. Crushed curry works nicely – and of course goes well with the lovely ribbon.

The Naturally Eclectic DSP is a wondrous mixture of colors that I’d never think to put together, but which I adore. Here we have emerald envy, lemon lime twist and soft sky with whisper white. What a fabulous combination.

Liz Bailey Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Naturally Eclectic DSP - Vertical Greetings

I was really pleased with a card that I CASEd from the catalog (page 33) so I decided to use the layout again. Here’s my earlier card. I changed it up a bit but still used DSP as the background and added that to an emerald envy card base.

The top layer was a piece of whisper white which looked “right”. I held a piece of the new half inch lemon lime twist ribbon along with my happy birthday over a scrap of whisper white to figure out the width!  The length was the same as the piece of Naturally Eclectic DSP – 4 inches. The sentiment is from Vertical Greetings, stamped in emerald envy. I added a mat 1/8 inch wider to pull it all together.

I just used a teeny piece of the Delightful Daisy DSP for this card and it’s a piece that looks like leaves. I really think that this paper pack is one of my most favourites ever.

Liz Bailey Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Delightful Daisy DSP - Daisy Delight - Soft Sayings Card Kit

I added the stamping from the Daisy Delight stamping in old olive on both very vanilla and old olive and punched them out with the Daisy Punch (back in stock currently!). I glued the two together for a two tone flower and finished it with a gold faceted gem. Love these! I added a mat of very vanilla around my piece of Delightful Daisy DSP to match the flower. And then I tried to make the gold embossing really sparkle in the photo.

The sentiment. Do you recognise it? It’s from the Soft Sayings Card kit which is a great kit – I’ve made all 20 of my cards already. I’ll share them soon. I embossed it with gold embossing powder to match the gem. A simple card but fun. And if you wanted to make a load, you could since it uses very little DSP.
