Project Tutorial

Today’s card is a lovely natural themed christmas card using the lots of cheer stampset from our Annual Catalogue (page 69 item number 149503).

Instructions:

My card base is Gray Granite card stock and the colour of ink I’ve used is also grey granite 🙂 I love to stamp ink on to the same coloured cardstock.

I stamped the snowman image from the stampset on to all three pieces of white cardstock and added a little colour using my stampin’ blends in the same colour. I then adhered them to my grey granite squares and placed these centrally on the card. BUT… before I stuck them down I stamped an image at the top left and bottom right corners of the card.

For the inside I did not add an insert but instead, decided to stamp directly onto two corners with a different image and a third sentiment in the middle of the inside of the card. I think it looks pretty damn cute.

Finally I used the new Snowflake sequins that are being launched on 4th September 🙂

Measurements:

Card Base measures 4 x 6 inches
Whisper White stamping squares 1 3/4″ squared
Gray Granite matt layers for the white squares 1 7/8″ squared

Products Used:

Minimal supplies needed today which is always a bonus.

Christmas, Free Online Card Project Tutorial

Christmas Make Episode 11 – Make your own Tartan DSP Background

Inspired by the Wrapped in Plaid Suite

Free Online Card Making Tutorial

Top Footer

Hello and welcome to another free online card tutorial from smithscraftycreations.com – this project is made using the Lots of Cheer stampset from Stampin’ Up! for which I am a demonstrator for.

I decided to use the colour combination of real red and shaded spruce and made my own card background in a tartan plaid pattern.  Not bad for a first attempt I must admit – and being Scottish – I can’t believe I’ve never hand drawn tartan before lol

Measurements:

This card is a 4 x 6 card (inches) with two separate layers measuring 5 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ each.

Instructions:

The bottom layer I embossed with the tufted dynamic embossing folder and the top layer I hand drew my tartan pattern on to whisper white.

I added some real red ribbon to join the two layers together then hand stamped and punched the three tree images.

I added a layered sentiment section and adhered the trees behind this section.

Overall a lovely traditionally coloured Christmas Card.
