Pink + slider + shaker = Christmas!

I’ve decided pink is my new favourite colour for Christmas and teamed with gold it’s just so pretty.  I made another simple slider card using the fabulous Kinetic dies from Whimsy Stamps, but also added a shaker element and some heat embossing.

Apologies for the photos, this card was a bit of a mare to photograph with all the bling!

I heat embossed the Snow Flurry Background stamp with gold glitter embossing powder onto pink pearlescent card, then cut out the slider and adhered a piece of craft foam to the back to allow for the slider element.  I adhered this to gold mirror card once the slider element was in place.  I made a mini shaker greeting using the fabulous Happy Frame Die Set and matching Happy Sayings Sentiment Stamps.  I finished it off by adding some gold pearls to the centres of the snowflakes.

Kinetic Dies at Whimsy Stamps

Whimsy Stamps has a surprise die release today of some brilliant Kinetic Dies.  The DT are sharing their fabulous makes on the Whimsy Stamps Blog

I have used the Curved Basics Die Set to make this sweet slider card.  I inked up the white card with distress inks – Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans and Black Soot, then stamped and heat embossed some snowflakes in the “sky”.  The snow is die cut from white glitter card to give some added bling.  I just love the way the little penguin jumps from side to side to land safely on his chunk of ice.

I made the poinsettias from red card and glitter card instead of foamiran for a change, I LOVE how these turned out.  The red card was just what I have in my stash, nothing special.  I die cut the red petals using the Lily Flower Die Set and the glitter card layers using the Build a Poinsettia Die set then spritzed the red petals with water and twisted them and allowed them to almost dry.  I then unravelled them and used a ball tool on the back of the petals onto a foam pad to get some shape.  The card holds the shape beautifully once dry, there’s no shifting these puppies!  I layered up a red set of petals, then gold then offset the final red layer and pulled some gold stamens through the centre.  I think I actually prefer the cardstock flowers to the foam!

I finished off the arrangement with some berries and leaves from the Christmas Branches die set.

The delectable paper is Christmas Jingle from Anna Marie Designs, the sentiment is from the Christmas Memories Clear Stamps set

Glitter Globe Shaker Maker

Whimsy Stamps rolled out another fabulous release today, and my card features the brilliant Shaker Maker Glitter Globe which I used as intended to make a sparkly shaker card, along with the Dash Away clear stamp set which I used to create the background for the globe.  I used the Notched Squares die set to create the card base.  Products are linked at the end of the post.

I used the Crafters Companion Harmony ink pads to create the night sky and also for the stamping of the trees and Santa’s sleigh then filled the shaker part with seed beads, round and snowflake sequins along with some glass glitter for extra sparkle.

I finished off with some foamiran Hellebore Flowers in plain white and some white and silver glitter card foliage.

Winter Roses

I’m rather getting into this CAS lark, especially for Christmas cards.  I used my pencils (both Prismacolor and Polychromo) to colour this Winter Roses background stamp.  I only picked one part of the stamp to colour, I’m liking the white space …. get me!

I used the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangle Dies to cut the white panel, love the detail the stitching gives.  I finished off with a sentiment from the digi Everyday Banner Sentiments set and a few Nuvo drops.
