Cookie Cutter slash and stamp a stack

So Christmas is just under 3 weeks away and time is quickly whizzing by. Time to whip up a few quick cards using some note cards with matching envelopes and the Cookie Cutter bundle.


My quick cards are all variations of the same design. They have a mat then a piece of designer series paper cut and separated so that you can stamp your sentiment on the coloured mat. By doing this you get 2 pieces from 1 piece of paper from the Warmth and Cheer DSP stack. I've simply turned the pieces over to vary the design.


The insides all get a bit of love too!


How cute and simple are these little punched cuties!!! The Cookie Cutter builder punch makes quick work of it!




These cards are also perfect for the challenge this week over at What Will You Stamp this week. Make sure you check out what the design team have done as well.


So you have no excuse now - whip up  a few Christmas cards today but sticking to a design theme and elements.

Shake & Celebrate tea light candle box card

In my last 2 posts I've shown you how to make a simple (but beautiful) tea light candle box card. I was so happy with the result and with how quick they were, I though it'd whip up a few more. The one I have for you today is using the Shake & Celebrate bundle.


They look really lovely at night with the battery operated tea light in them.


And they don't look too bad during the day either!


The back has a panel to write your message to the special person you give this card to.

Christmas Wishes Tea light candle box card

On Sunday I showed you how to make a Tea Light Candle Box card. It was so easy and fun that I got on a roll and made a few more. This card is to send overseas to someone who will be having a white Christmas.


The colours were inspired by the inspiration Challenge over at Just Add Ink this week.

http://just-add-ink.blogspot.com.au/2016/11/just-add-ink-338inspiration.html

My card didn't end up having as rich colours as in the picture but I did use the jewel tones as inspirtation. When I added a few darker colours it made the inside of my 'house' look creepy and spooky rather than Christmassy!


I have used the Home & Hearth framelits to create the window. I have turned it on its side to give a better view of my trees inside.


Fancy Frost DSP makes some nice wall panelling. The Holly Berry Builder punch teamed with the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set makes quick work of the swag element on the front.

 
And of course it folds flat to fit into a standard Australian C6 envelope. In this photo you can see more of the inspiration I took from the Just Add Ink inspiration picture. I have given most elements a coat of Clear Wink of Stella. I had intended the bow to be a bit like a belly band but I realised that it stayed in place after standing the card up. Bonus.......means the recipient doesn't have to keep tying the bow.
 

The back panel is easily decorated with the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set.


So why don't you have a go at making one of these easy cards that has a real wow factor????
