Joyful Christmas Cards

I can’t believe we’re already in December! And WOW what a busy month I have ahead of me, as I’m sure we all do 🙂

I’ve been back in my crafting ‘spot’; sat on the living room floor in front of the fire! Nothing like getting toasty (even if a little uncomfortable!) and I came up with these little beauties…

Real Red, Cherry Cobbler & Early Espresso

I love colour, so I had to do a few different colour ways… decided to stick to 3 for this little project based on the amount of other stuff I was doing too 🙂

Surprisingly easy to put together… the fiddliest part was lining up the wreaths on the Big Shot, quickly got the hang of it though thanks to the little tabs.

Colours: Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise & Tangerine Tango

If you want to make your own, here are the layers I used for mine 🙂

I cut A4 Whisper White cardstock in half, and folded in half again to creat the card blank.

Cut Silver Glimmer Paper to 3/4 x 41/2 inch strips, and cut those to points for the first layer, adhered with Mini Glue Dots

Coloured cardstock was 4 x 2 inches, cut to a ‘flag’ shape, and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals

The Wonderous Wreath Photopolymer stampset and Framelits Bundle was then used to create the lovely little wreaths on Whisper White cardstock, and cut using my Big Shot.  The wreaths were adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.

The sentiment I borrowed from the Holiday Home Stampset, and layered on top using Mini Glue Dots.

Then ‘Joy’ was cut from Silver Foil Paper from the Wondrous Wreath framelit set, and adhered with some mini Glue Dots.

The colour combinations I used are;

Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, and Early Espresso

Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise, and Tangerine Tango

Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, and Rich Razzleberry

Colours: Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive & Rich Razzleberry

Stampin’ for the Kitchen!

Hey hey!

Who hasn’t watched TV, been on Pinterest, or even looked through the IKEA catalogue and seen something along the lines of this…

kitchen jars{SOURCE}

I have, and I LOVE ‘EM! So when I was fighting with my kitchen cupboards and dropped half a bag of flour I said “Enough is enough!” and promptly left the house and headed out to IKEA to buy myself some pretty glass jars.

I got back home and decanted all my half bags of dried goods into them, and realised I was facing a bit of a problem… I had no way of differentiating what was in each jar (and my memory isn’t that great!) So I had to come up with something… quick… and this is it…

And these are so darned easy to make 🙂

Punch out some Whisper White cardstock using the Note Tag Punch (A/W 14 Catalogue)

Stamp Gorgeous Grunge Stampset in Pear Pizzazz and Rich Razzleberry ink (Matches the colours of my kitchen 😉 )

Write on contents using the Stampin’ Write Marker pen

Pierce a hole in the top (I used my Paper Piercing Tool) and tie around the neck of the jar using White Bakers Twine

Done!

I now have lots of lovely glass jars in various sizes, all beautifully labelled! Now I can easily sort these out!

Hope you like!

See you soon 🙂
