Circle creations

I've been having a bit of fun with the new Circle Cutter, available in the Summer Mini catalogue, so I've done just a few more Christmas cards. The Snow Swirled stamp set has been in action again as well as Real Red ink and cardstock. The craft Whisper White inkpad was used to stamp the Christmas Tree and sponge around the edges. The Christmas Tree was highlighted with the white gel pen and a drop of Crystal Effects for dimension.

The Christmas Tree is gold embossed onto Kraft cardstock and the circle Cutter was used to round the edge of the cardstock. Then the cutter settings were adjusted slightly to give a thin strip. Baja breeze is the base cardstock.

More Snow Swirled

More gold embossing of the Snow Swirled Christmas Tree. The new Real Red ribbon has been added to the corner of the card front. The cardstock is Kiwi Kiss and Real Red. Do you like the wording banner here?

I embossed gold Christmas trees in bulk so there are more variations to come!!

The flower from Scribble This has been stamped twice, cut out and layered. Gold beads have been added to the centre. The new Real Red ribbon was again added to the Kraft card with gold Encore snowflakes from Snow Swirled stamped on the base Kraft cardstock.

Snow Swirled Fun!!

A little fun with the Christmas Tree from Snow Swirled Stamp Set. It has been embossed in gold on Kraft cardstock then layered on Whisper White Cardstock. The card is Chocolate Chip with a Riding Hood Red strip. The flower is from the Season of Joy stamp set and is stamped in Riding Hood Red also.

Christmas Tree decoration

This was fun to create and I first saw it HERE. Each individual piece is a square, I used the smaller square punch and then cut 12, 4 cm squares. The snowflake is from the stamp set Snow Swirled stamped in Real Red. Give it a go!! You can also adhere a photo to the back before hanging on the Christmas tree.

Secret Santa

These are the Secret Santa cards that we shared at our team meeting today!! Aren't they fantastic?? The 'Sandy Claws' card has a plastic sheet overlay to give an effective appearance of looking into a fish bowl. Awesome work Shanni!! The card using the Season of Joy trees and the koala bear was also a 3D card with a sheet of plastic at the front, really impressive Coral!! The blue card uses the Snowflake Swirls with a matching envelope. The envelope has been cut with the smaller piece creating a lid and the remainder a pocket which has been crimped. A wonderful idea created by Paula. The remaining cards used a combination of the Christmas tree from Snow Swirled and the flower from Scribble This cut out twice. This would be my work!! Thinking of those of you who couldn't be there today!!
