Christmas Stamp-a-Stack: Christmas Gleaming

As my Christmas Card Classes have now all finished, I can share the projects with you.

The first is from my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack and is this really quick and simple card made using the Christmas Gleaming Bundle.

I squealed when I first saw this bundle in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue as there are TWO Punches.

This project uses Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce to match the fabulous Ribbon. But you could use less traditional Christmas colours.

A punched circle creates a layer for the baubles to sit on.

Rather than fussy cutting the sentiment, I’ve used the Classic Label Punch and trimmed off the ends.

The basecard is Thick Whisper White cardstock, but you could use a Notecard instead, which would make the project even quicker to make.

Pop back soon for the next project from the class.

Don’t forget to check out the Year-End Closeout Sale where some items from the Autumn/Winter Catalgoue are available at a discounted price. Also, some items from this Catalogue will be retiring in the next few weeks, so make sure you don’t miss out on purchasing your favourites.

I’ve just published my 2020 Class Timetable dates, so make sure you pop them in your diaries. Full details of what each Class is to follow soon.

Happy crafting

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Christmas Gleaming Bundle

Last week was the start of my evening Christmas Card Classes, so I decided that the Card & Cuppa attendees shouldn’t miss out.

Also, as it was Half-Term, I held a Card & Cuppa for Children Class. Rather than designing a separate project for them, I chose to use the same project for all of my Card & Cuppa sessions during the week.

The fabulous Christmas Gleaming Bundle from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue provided a fantastic starting point. This Bundle has a Stamp Set and a pack of TWO amazing punches.

Garden Green and Real Red are used as the main colours for the baubles and sentiment. These are then punched out. I’ve used the Classic Label Punch for the sentiment and then snipped off the excess on each end.

Using the snowflake image from the Christmas Countdown Stamp Set, I created a gentle flurry in Seaside Spray Ink.

Corners are rounded using the Detailed Trio Punch to mirror the punched Circle layers behind the baubles.

A length of Garden Green Double-Stitched Ribbon, also from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue is added behind.

All of the attendees, both children and adults did a fabulous job with their projects.

Stampin’ Up! products are great to use with children as the stamps give you a crisp impression and everything is great quality. Don’t be tempted to let the younger ones just use your non-Stampin’ Up! stash. Get them using quality products straight away to enhance their stamping experience.

Why not join us for a future Card & Cuppa Class, or my final evening Classes of the year. Visit my Class Timetable for full details and booking information.
