Frosted Floral Gift Tags

I love the entire Frosted Floral Suite so making a set of Christmas tags using this beautiful set was a must!

I wanted to keep the colours and design of these tags less traditional and more feminine, whilst still being easy to replicate.

I opted for a rich razzleberry, blackberry bliss and gorgeous grape colour way, set against either a galvanized metallic or sparkle glimmer stitched circle.

I added a subtle silver foil sprig for some interest, and those boxwood wreath embellishments just pop against the tags. The iridescent wreath is currently on sale while stocks last so click on the picture of them below to go straight to my online shop!

Love the simplicity and winter berry colours of these tags, hope you do too xx

Another Wonderful Year Christmas Gift Tag & Gift Box Set

This week is all about Christmas tags, and these ones are super cute and easy to put together. I love the stitched shapes framelits dies and how gorgeous these square ones look layered up together.

Although I stayed with a merry merlot/tranquil tide and copper theme throughout, I absolutely love the design break with the buffalo check background stamp. So beautiful, why did I wait so long to use it?!

Having made 6 gorgeous tags, I just had to make a matching box to hold them all in!

Large Letters meets Frosted Floral DSP

This Christmas Card was inspired by the Frosted Floral Banner I made and posted on my blog last week. Tranquil Tide is one of my favourite colours and this glimmer paper is truly stunning.

I chose one of the more subtle designs in the Frosted Floral DSP pack and just love how that beautiful glimmer paper pops against that soft shimmery background DSP.

Aside from the die cutting of my large letters, this card was so quick and easy to put together and the result is simple yet stunning. The papers do all the work for you! Even the die cutting was quick as you are able to run all your letters through the big shot at once. The end result is a WOW card for minimal effort and you’ve gotta love those 😉

Broadway Bound Father Christmas Bag

I am trying to be organized this year with Christmas presents and making all my own gift packaging, and wanted to make some Christmas treat bags for under the tree.

These bags are tall and sized to hold a 125g Lindt chocolate Father Christmas, but they are large enough to hold an abundance of most types of Christmas confectionary or maybe bottled gifts.

I wanted a change from Christmas DSP and it occurred to me that the Broadway Bound DSP could easily double up as Christmas Paper with all those beautiful Metallics.

Love these bags as an alternative, more contemporary take on a Father Christmas style bag.

Floral Frames

A fellow demonstrator asked the members of our team if we could send a handmade card to a brave young girl who is facing a tough journey ahead.

I wanted to get involved and decided to use Floral Frames and that simple yet lovely sentiment, ‘sending love’ on my card. I love it when sentiments are easy to use and you can convey a lot with just a few words.

I kept the design very simple and coloured in the flowers with my Stampin’ blends before adhering the frame itself to a corrugated mat. What a fabulous embossing folder, uber chic!

Never underestimate the power of a handmade card. I hope this one lifts Evelyne’s spirits and brightens her day 😘 xx

Frosted Floral Banner

I have LOVED this season’s Frosted Floral DSP and will miss it so much when it retires. Here in the UK, inventory is already very low so if it’s on your wish list make sure you order it soon!

I decided to make a banner with it so I can continue to admire this gorgeous paper long after it’s gone!

I chose blackberry bliss for my banner base as its a great match for the colours in my lounge and the colours of the baubles on my Christmas Tree.

One thing I haven’t used enough of until now, is that stunning tranquil tide glimmer paper. I love how elegant those large sparkly letters look in that beautiful colour way.

Really enjoyed trying my hand at some home decor for a change. Hope you like the way it turned out as much as I do.

Detailed Deer Shaker Christmas Card

Of all the beautiful Christmas bundles I’ve purchased from the Autumn/Winter catalogue so far, the Dashing Deer Bundle has gotten the most use. I love deer and The Detailed Deer Dies are just so stunning.

I love how sparkly and elegant this Christmas shaker card turned out. I know I should give some of the other foil paper a chance for goodness sake, but for some reason I am totally hooked on copper this year and I LOVE the copper reindeer paired with the black organdy ribbon and gorgeous metallic sequins!

The lovely sentiment comes from Making Christmas Bright and fits the card and all of its shiny elements perfectly.

Snowflake Showcase – Snowflake card with galaxy style background

The Snowflake Showcase is simply stunning. This gorgeous set makes it easy to stretch my creativity and before I knew it, I was attempting my first ever galaxy-style blended background!

These backgrounds have been dry blended and I have also stayed with one colour family for each card so I’m not sure it qualifies officially as the galaxy technique (which I believe is usually watercoloured). But it is my unique take on that technique.

I had so much fun creating these backgrounds and they all came together relatively quickly too.

The snowflake is cut from the largest die in the Snowfall die set and it is absolutely beautiful. I cut each snowflake from the new white velvet sheets – oh my, how divine!!! This paper is pure luxury, and I love its texture and the way it pops so vividly against the blended background.

The colour combos I used were:

RED – poppy parade, lovely lipstick, real red, cherry cobbler, merry merlot

PINK – petal pink, flirty flamingo, melon mambo, berry burst

GREEN – lemon lime twist, mint macaron, old olive, tranquil tide

PURPLE – highland heather, gorgeous grape, Rich razzleberry, blackberry bliss

BLUE – coastal cabana, balmy blue, pacific point, night of navy

To see how I created my background, click play on the video below.

Don’t forget the snowflake showcase will only be available to purchase until the end of November so don’t miss out on this beautiful and timeless set!! To purchase any of the products, just click on the product picture below. Thanks for stopping by xx
