Are you ready for some more great weekly deals?

White Christmas

Brrrrr, it's getting chilly around here, but hey, I am thankful for the gorgeous weather we have had of late!
 
So a Christmas card for you today, a sweet and simple one too!
 
I used two new stamps here, White Christmas and Endless Wishes
 
I stamped the tree stamp from "White Christmas" using Stazon Black in onto Coastal Cabana cardstock, then snow from the same set using White Craft ink, not so easy to see in this picture.
 
I used the White Chalk marker pen to add some snow to the ground too!

 
I adore the "Endless Wishes" stamp set as it consists of not only lots of lovely greetings stamps but also some beautiful snowflake images.  This is a Photopolymer set which makes it sooooo easy to line up your words.
 
Here I used some of the 1/8" silver ribbon to tie around my greeting banner and then punched a glimmer star for some texture.
 
 
I loved this card so much I decided to use it as a swap for a recent training event, I produced 20 cards in no time at all, both of these stamps are so easy to use and the combinations of images make them very versatile sets and at £13.95 each they are amazing value.

All things "Bright and Beautiful"

I'm not quite sure where the last week has gone to, in fact, I'm not sure what happened to September altogether!!
 
Today's card features a couple of new stamp sets from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue, the alphabet set "Back to Basics" is from the current Annual Catalogue.
 
The gorgeous star image is from a set called
"Bright and Beautiful" and I just can't put it down, I have had so much use out of it already and we are still a couple of month's away from Christmas!
 
The word "Christmas" is from an amazing Photopolymer set called "Endless Wishes", I love the font and how you can make many different combinations of greetings.  The set also has some Snowflake images which are gorgeous.
 
 
 
 

 
The word "happy" is from a fab set called "Back to Basics" and I used the Banner Punch to cut them out
 
My colour combo here is Soft Suede for the base then Lost Lagoon for the front layer, all teamed with Whisper White.
 
 
 
I heat embossed the star to give a nice shimmery finish.

 
Make sure you stop by tomorrow to find out some fab news on the latest promotion that is about to begin!

Wondrous Wreath, it's not just for Christmas!

I love how the "Wondrous Wreath" stamps can be used for different seasons of the year, again, it's not just for Christmas!
 
Here I've created a Thank You card and used colours to deter from a Christmas theme.
 
So there are some "rules" for using this set which has Framelits Dies to match. 
 
This is another "2 Step Stampin" set and the stamps and dies have little tabs on so that you can line up the images with ease and know how to line the dies up with the stamp, if you so wish!
 
On my card I didn't make any effort to line them up as I wanted you to see that it still works even if you are a little "shaky" with your stamping and are unable to get a perfect match with the first image you stamped underneath.
 
 
I used Pistachio Pudding and Always Artichoke ink for the wreath and added Crisp Cantaloupe Flowers which also have a matching die.
 
 
 
My ribbon knot was tied using the lovely new Gold Satin Ribbon, I'm so glad we have Satin Ribbon back in our Catalogue, it ties lovely bows and perfect knots.
