I promised that I would show you all the amazing cards I received in the Christmas card swap I participated in recently. Here they are! I am so inspired by everyone’s creativity and talent.

I love the combination of different sets and textures for this card by Adrienne. The bare branches really give that wintry feel!

The Feels Like Frost suite is one of my favourites, and I love that Ann has used a fun Z-fold on this gorgeous card. I may just have to CASE this one for my upcoming Christmas class!

How fun is this cute little elf stamp playing Peekaboo? A great combination of products by Barb!

Love the photorealistic images of the Feels Like Frost DSP, and the Layered Leaves embossing folder is a perfect companion!

 

Another beautiful fancy fold card, this one starring the Toile Tidings DSP and Still Scenes bundle. Did you notice that Caroline spattered white on the front to make it look like snowfall?

This gorgeously coloured cardinal contrasts perfectly with the Feels Like Frost DSP. Stunning!

Love these charming, smiling snowmen from the Snowman Season bundle!

Gold embossing powder makes a perfect companion to the gold foil accents of the Wrapped in Plaid DSP – great bling, Colleen!

The Christmas Crowd stamp is a fun one to colour!

The Snow Front stamp set is a perfect complement to Waterfront. These soft-brush images will help you build a beautiful scene, as shown here by Elke!

Gorgeous cards don’t have to be complicated! A wonderful use of embellishments here by Jean to create a lovely effect!

 

I searched and searched for this “Jingle” stamp before realizing the letters are die-cut using the Hand-Lettered Prose dies. And I love the wintry look of the Nature’s Roots dies!! What a great way to put products from the annual catalogue to Christmas-y use!

Silver foil sheets are a great companion for the sparkling stars bundle – what a gorgeous card by Madeleine!

Terrific colouring and a fun snowy effect here by MiRan. The Brick and Mortar embossing folder is so handy for holiday projects!

This card is adorable and charming from the outside, but even more exciting on the inside ….

 

….what a great shadowbox!!

 

Sharon shows us that the Toile Christmas stamp can be coloured in alternative colours as well. I love the effect with the Puff Paint in the background!

A simple yet striking card by Shirley!

This fun and textured card by Susan features just the right amount of blingy gold foil!

And, here’s the card I created for the swap:

Those pearls are hand-coloured with my Blends markers!

Last weekend I attended another fun and busy meeting of the Vancouver Island Stampin’ Up! demonstrators for a delightful day full of crafts, friends, and learning. I participated in a Christmas card swap (stay tuned to see the beautiful cards I received!), and as usual there were several make-and-take projects.

This fun gift item by Barb uses the Cup of Christmas bundle and holds two mini Tic-Tac containers. What a great stocking stuffer!

This gorgeous card by Carolyn shows how you can use a non-Christmas stamp set (Good Morning Magnolia) to create a Christmas card. We used aqua painters to create a whitewash on the flowers, then sponge-daubed Cherry Cobbler ink to create the red centres. I’ll be demonstrating this technique in an upcoming video, so stay tuned!

This charming moose card by Erica is so fun and simple! The snow in the background is from Peaceful Boughs.

Susan showed us how to make this terrific gift card holder. Perfect Christmas gift! The Wrapped in Plaid suite makes decorating the outside quick and easy.

Christmas cards in non-traditional colours are one of my favourite things, and this card by Adrienne showcases that perfectly!

 

This card by Lynne is a great way to show off DSP, and a terrific way to use up scraps. Great layout!

And finally, this detailed card by Karen features a really cool technique – can you guess how the magic is done?

This week’s Stampin’ Sunday video is something really different – a collaborative project between me and my daughter, Gwen. In addition to being a crafter, Gwen is also an avid creator (and consumer) of videos, so she co-directed this video with me, and took it in some different and fun directions. I hope you like the result!

The video features the September 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit, “Bone Appetit”. This kit includes 20 food-safe treat boxes, a unique and exclusive Halloween stamp set, and a spooky, special-edition box. We’re going to fill the boxes with treats to give to Gwen’s class at school.
