Here’s my final Christmas card for the year using Festive Phrases to wish you a very merry Christmas. I coloured the lights with real red and garden green Stampin’ Write markers and then added a little sparkle with wink of Stella. With a border of real red cut out with the layering squares framelits dies and put on a card dry embossed with the Softly Falling TIEF, you get a classy card nice and quickly – although I’ve had this ready and photographed for about 10 days!

Just popping in to wish you a Happy Christmas Eve – I hope that your preparations are going well. Here’s a quick card if you find yourself short and you need a little inspiration. It uses the Good Tidings stamp set as well as the cute little Christmas tree from the Watercolor Christmas set which coordinates with the Watercolor Christmas project kit.

Here’s the last 3D item that I made for my craft fairs – absolutely adorable Christmas lightbulb treat holders which hold a little candy. They use the now retired curvy keepsake framelits, a little glue and some scoring and you’re done. You could easily put these together in time to dress up your table (as long as you already have the dies that is!)

I found these on Lydia Fiedler’s blog, Understand Blue. Lydia is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator who really adores techniques; I encourage you to read her blog. Here’s her video showing how she made these.

Here’s one of the cards that I recently offered at a “come and make some cards quickly” event. I myself managed to make some too whilst helping everyone with carding and cake. Oh yes, there are always cake or cookies at my classes. This uses most of the tree from Season Like Christmas – it’s a three stamp but I only used 2 for the tree.

Although there are 4 stamps to be stamped, it’s still quick to make. First use the soft suede for the trunk and then stamp off the old olive and stamp the full tree, then add the detail with full strength old olive. To finish add the grassy bank – some of mine were full strength, some weren’t. Then I put that onto a piece of old olive to give it a border but after the fact wondered about soft suede so tried that too.

For the background it’s a piece of Merry Little Christmas DSP on a thick whisper white base. Easy to carve up a sheet of 12 by 12 into 6 background pieces and then make up half a dozen cards quickly.
