Hello again! It’s been a while since I posted any inspiration, so I thought I’d pop in and show you the Christmas cards we made in a Stamp-A-Stack class this week. The inspiration for this week, was non-traditional colours – not the usual red and green! ;)

The first card uses Lovely As A Tree, stamped with Versamark, and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder; on Crumb Cake cardstock. A strip of Silver Glimmer Paper was then layered on the card front. A slightly larger strip of Pool Party cardstock was stamped with a sentiment from Jingle All The Way, using Versamark, and heat embossed with white embossing powder too.

A few sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment, and some Basic Rhinestones, finished the card off. The matching envelope was stamped and heat embossed using Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Here’s the finished card:

For the second card, using Soft Sky cardstock, we inked the raised side of the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) with Soft Sky Classic Stampin’ ink, and stamped on theย  card front, to create a snowy background. A 4cm wide strip of Lost Lagoon cardstock was trimmed to a banner shape with Paper Snips,and glued to the card front.

On a 9cm wide piece of Whisper White cardstock, we stamped a sentiment from Cozy Christmas with Soft Sky ink. This piece was also trimmed to the shape of a banner.

The same stamp was then stamped onto Blushing Bride cardstock with Versamark, then heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This was then trimmed to a smaller banner containing the word ‘Season’. This was layered over the stamped image on the Whisper White banner.

A strand of Silver Cording Trim tied in a bow, some silver sequins, and rhinestones; finished off the card. The matching envelope was stamped with the house stamp in Cozy Christmas, using Soft Sky ink.

Here is the finished card:
