Santa And His Reindeers – 3 Cards

It’s the 23rd of December…my girls used to call it Christmas Eve Eve when they were little…ha ha…I think right now all they want to do is open up their prezzies ASAP…(don’t we all!!)…the cards I’m sharing today have been made using the WPlus9 Santa’s Reindeer stamp and die set…this set was released last year but I wasn’t able to get it then…but I knew I was getting it for this year’s cards for sure..

For my first card I die cut the front panel from white cardstock using a stitched rectangle die and then die cut two windows on it using dies from the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box die set…these dies give a stitched detail on the outside of the die cut section…
On the rectangle shaped window I added a panel on which I had sponged in some salty ocean Distress ink and then used the Avery Elle snowfall background die…I adhered this panel to a white card base and then added the coloured in and die cut Santa,Chimney and Reindeer images…
I stamped the ‘Merry Xmas’ sentiment using red ink inside the oval window and adhered some tiny red sequins to embellish my card..

I tried to create a night sky scene for the background of my second card using Distress Oxide inks…I have used the shades fossilized amber, salty ocean, wilted violet and black soot and then splattered some water as well as white gold watercolour on it…once dry,I die cut this panel to size using  a dotted rectangle die…

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder and then adhered it to a white card base…and finally I adhered the watercoloured and die cut images on my card…and finally to embellish it I have used silver star sequins…

Now my third card went exactly to plan so I was really happy….I die cut a panel from white cardstock using one of the Kat’s Scrappiness Postage Stamp Edge dies…I then sponged in some salty ocean and squeezed lemonade Distress Inks and sprayed quite a lot of water on top…
Once dry,I adhered this panel onto a deep red cardstock card base and then added all the die cut images to it…I have used some sparling clear eqions in various sizes to embellish my card…

Cute Anniversary Card

I wanted to make an anniversary card and picked out the Wplus9 Garden Buddies stamp set for it…I  really like the images in this set and was surprised that I haven’t made an anniversary card with this set yet…

I started by sponging some Distress Inks to cover up the top panel…I used wilted violet,broken china and blueprint sketch shades here…I splattered some water for effect and then used the Memory Box star stencil and some white pigment ink to print the star pattern…I then adhered this panel to a white card base…

I die cut the word ‘happy’ from purple glitter cardstock as well as white cardstock and layered them before adhering them onto the card front…I stamped and heat embossed the word happy on a small strip of purple cardstock and adhered it to the die cut word…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the girl and boy images and then cut them out and placed them on the card..I also stamped and heat embossed another sentiment below these images…

And finally to embellish my card I have used a few rhinestones in various sizes…

Thank you for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Happy crafting…!!

Christmas Gift Boxes

Every time I need a gift box,I simply go to Sam’s blog – Pootles.co.uk and I usually find the right box with all the measurements and even a tutorial video….I also love how she decorates her boxes…
Today I looked for a small box tutorial which is about 4″ high and found this one – Soft Pretty Box – which when finished is 4.25″x 2.5″x 1.5″ 
I followed the tutorial to create my Christmas boxes…the first box is made from plain dark blue cardstock and I have used a printed panel on the for the front and adhered a die cut reindeer on it…I have used a white ribbon to close the box and added a small stamped tag as well…
For my second box I used a printed cardstock..I loved this white paper with lots of Christmas trees printed on it…I have used a printed panel for the front for this one as well and adhered a stamped,coloured in and cut out image of the little elf called Rebecca…I threared a ribbon to close the box and added a tiny stamped tag for this one too…
These boxes were just the perfect size for my gifts…
Thank you for stopping by my blog today…Have a blessed day ahead..!!
