Stampin' Up! - Christmas Cards Using Carols of Christmas Bundle

It's never to early to start with your Christmas Cards and Stampin' Up! are always on the ball with lovely on trend bundles like the Carols of Christmas Bundle which has a super 10% discount. The bundle has a great stamp set with 13 stamps, including 2 lovely large sentiments to make your cards super cute. The bundle also comes with a packet of 11 super dies that not only co-ordinate with the stamp set but there are two that give you the ability to add extra interest to your cards with a border effect. 

Carols of Christmas

This is the first card i made using the bundle as as you can see i have used one of the dies twice round the edge of the card to make this super boarder effect on the card. The large sentiments are so lovely with this 3d and shading effect on them.

On the card above I used another of the dies at the bottom of the card to give this sweet night time effect and can you see I added some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper behind the moon to give it a wow factor. So easy to do and a super quick card to make.

Carols of Christmas


This card took no time at all as the sentiments are so great, I just used the sentiment and added some little holly leaves and berries round the edges and hey presto it was done.

The last card I made used one of the dies in the set to make these trees aren't they lovely and they sparkle so well in the light. I hope you can see the sparkly because they look so cute close up and anybody receiving one would love it.

Stampin' Up! Baby Card Using Moon Baby Stamp Set + Brand New Thinlits!!

I wanted to share with you a baby card I made recently using some brand new Thinlits from Stampin' Up!. The thinlits are called Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies and they come in the early release bundle called Carols of Christmas. The bundle comes with a super 10% off discount and is the only bundle that has been made available before anything else from the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue.

Moon Baby 

I loved making this card because the Moon Baby stamp set is so sweet and the image of the baby above the moon is super cute.

I made the card by layering Melon Mambo and Powder Pink card stock. Before I layered these colours together I used my brand new Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies to cut out the star shapes in each corner. I placed some Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper underneath the Powder Pink Card stock so you would get a super cute sparkly effect from the front. I then stamped my image on Whisper White paper from the Moon Baby Stamp set and coloured it in using Watercolor Pencils and my Blender Pen. The colouring is so therapeutic and so lovely to do. I smooshed the edges that's a technical term :) with some of the Melon Mambo ink and layered that on some more Melon Mambo and Powder Pink Card and popped it on the front of the card using Dementionals. The sentiment is also from the Moon Baby stamp set. The last thing i did was punch a hole in the front of the panel with the image and pop some of the lovely new Powder Pink finely woven ribbon through and make a pretty tag top.     


Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies
The card came together very quickly and I think looks great, and the added dimension of the corners make the card look really lovely. You could make the card in any colour you liked.

The New Carols of Christmas Bundle is available right now through my online store and all you have to do is click on one of the pictures to go straight to the store, and if you get it as a bundle you'll get 10% off, making it a great deal.
