Global Stampers: Christmas is Coming part 2

Hi there,

Sorry I haven’t been posting daily as promised but I’ve been super busy this past week. So instead of doing a daily post, I will be sharing all the projects from the other ladies today. You can click on their names for the link to their blog post for more details on their projects.

Let’s start with Ann first. She’s made an awesome card using the Detailed Santa Thinlits.

Ann's Detailed Santa Thinlits

I love the details in her card, especially Santa’s list.

Next up we have Fiona’s project. She’s made a lovely Christmas home decor piece.

Fiona's Christmas Plaque

Her project features the Peaceful Pines stamp set from our 2016 2017 Annual Catalogue.

Next we have Robbie’s project, featuring the Merry Tags framelits.

Robbie's Merry Tags

I love how versatile this framelits set is. You can make tags as well as gorgeous focus points for cards.

Last but not least, we have Valérie’s project featuring the Santa’s Sleigh & Star of Light sets.

I love the watercoloured background she created for her project.

Thanks for coming back for this post. Make sure you visit all the ladies blogs & leave them some blog love.

We will be back again next month for another installment of Global Stampers posts.

Until next time, happy stamping!  🙂

Global Stampers August 2016: Christmas is Coming!

Hi all,

Welcome to the second month of our Global Stampers post. Our theme this month is “Christmas is Coming!” & we will be featuring products from our Annual Catalogue as well as some upcoming products from our 2016 Holiday Products available on 1 September.

Like last time, I will share my projects with you today. Then, I will share the projects made by Ann, Fiona, Robbie & Valérie over the next few days, so be sure to come back to check them all out.

I am featuring the Tin of Tags Project Kit & stamp set. When I saw the tin, I knew I had to have it…I didn’t even care what was inside it! Lol! 😀

So, here’s one each of the 10 tag designs along with a few extra projects I made.

Tin of Tags projects

Shall we take a closer look at all the projects?

Let’s start with the Tin of Tags Project Kit. The kit comes with all the tags & embellishments you need to make 30 tags (3 each of 10 designs). You will also need the Tin of Tags stamp set, inks & adhesives to complete the kit.

Here’s a look at the completed tags.

Completed Tin of Tags Kit

Don’t you just love them! They are too adorable & so simple to make. I managed to complete the entire kit in a little over an hour. This is a great way to get organised for your Christmas packaging early. This kit also makes a great gift for beginner or avid crafters. You can watch a quick video by Stampin’ Up! on this kit here.

Now, if you’re like me, and you don’t have the need for 30 tags, then you’re thinking it’s not really worth the investment (that’s if you can look past that cute tin!). Well, let me show you what else you can do with the tags.

I’ll start with this quick & easy note card.

Tin of Tags Note Card

I chose one of the tags from the kit & tied the twine in a bow instead. Then with a strip of DSP banner, some washi tape (leftover from the kit) & one of our Note Cards – put them all together & you’ve got a quick & easy note card ready to go!

Plus a simple sentiment & a bit more stamping to finish the inside of the card.

Now, we’re talking versatility – great for gift tags and some quick & easy cards. And if you’re frugal like me, there’s plenty of leftover twine, washi & sequins to use for more tags or other projects.

Like maybe this?

Tin of Tags Folder for Tags

I created a Gatefold File Folder card with pockets inside. The pattern you see on the card are the images from the Tin of Tags stamp set. I love making my own DSP & this set has some awesome festive images for that.

Wanna see what I put in the pockets?

Surprise! More tags! Well actually, I thought another way I could make this kit worth my $$ is by giving some away since I don’t need that many. So I chose 6 of the tags & placed them in the pockets. Now I’ve got a great gift ready for Christmas! This would make a lovely Secret Santa gift for a colleague.

Now you’re probably thinking, “What am I going to do with the stamp set once I’ve completed my kit?”. Well, you could use them to make more tags. Or how about this?

Tin of Tags Snowflakes Note Card

It’s another quick & easy note card using the images & sentiment from the stamp set. And with some rhinestones & Clear Wink of Stella, you can make this card sparkle for the extra “Wow” factor.

The photo doesn’t do it justice, but the Wink of Stella over the stars & mini snowflake/sparkle on the sentiment is so sparkly, I’m not sure I want to give it away! 😉

The set has some awesome sentiments & I can see a few uses for some of them outside the holiday season. But you’ll have to come back another time to see those, our theme is “Christmas is Coming!”  after all 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I know it was a bit of a long post & I hope it was worth it & you enjoyed my projects. Let me know which is your favourite project in the comments.

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for another Christmas in August project from the other Global Stampers.

Until next time, happy stamping! 🙂

Foxy Friends Photo Booth Card

Hi there,

I’ve got a cute card for you today using one of my favourite stamp sets – Foxy Friends – from the 2016 – 2017 Annual Catalogue.

I saw the layout by Sherry’s Stamped Treasures on Pinterest & had to CASE (Copy & Share Everywhere) it but changed it up slightly. So here’s my take on it…

Foxy Friends Photo Booth Layout

I love how the layout looks like my little fox friend had hopped into a photo booth and took some silly photos in it 🙂

You can purchase this stamp set with the coordinating Fox Builder punch as a bundle. There’s also a coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack called A Little Foxy. A tip for you, don’t forget to order the DSP Stack when you purchase the stamp & punch like me!

But if you do, you can always create your own DSP using the images from the stamp set like I did. Here’s a close up of my homemade DSP…

This makes the stamp set even more versatile and you can match the colours of your homemade DSP to whatever critter you decide to make. The possibilities are endless!

Since this is a generic card with no sentiment, I decided to decorate the inside with my little fox friend as well.

This card can be used for just about any occasion. I used it as a baby shower card & my friend loved it & I hope you enjoyed this project too.

Until next time, happy stamping!  🙂
