Stampin' for Christmas Blog Hop!

Saturday 6 August 2022 United Kingdom

Today we are blog hopping with papercrafters and Stampin' Up! demos for the Stampin' for Christmas blog hop!
If you are a blog post subscriber, it appears the email format for my blog posts by email has changed. I haven't had a chance to work out why the emails are coming through differently but I hope to resolve it very soon so please bear with me 💕

If you are visiting my blog for the first time, hello and welcome!

There are only 140 days until Christmas! 

You might think it is too early to start Christmas crafting, however, if you like to be well organised, struggle to find time in the festive season or simply love creating Christmas cards like I do, there is absolutely nothing wrong with crafting for Christmas all year round.

I've finally placed my order of Christmas goodies and also lots of items from the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue that launced in May. It's not arrived yet so I am sharing yet another project using the Joyful Flurry bundle and Sale-a-Bration DSP (called Silver & Gold DSP).  

Silver & White is my favourite look for Christmas cards so today I have a new project to add to my collection - check them out here.

I haven't had a lot of time to craft recently so I quickly put this together with an old sketch in mind

Of course, I didn't choose the best time of day to take my photographs so they are not as clear as I wanted them to be. 

I've combined the DSP with coordinating elements such as Silver Foil (from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack), Rhinestone Basic Jewels and silver heat embossing.

I cut a piece of silver foil 1cm wide to adhere either side of my DSP - approx 1/2 cm overlaps underneath. You could of course use one large piece underneath the DSP but I like to use my materials sparingly.

I had some left over silver embossed snowflakes from another project - these really helped me create this project quickly in the spare hour I had after work yesterday. The first rule of the craftroom.... keep all unused die cuts! 

I have used the Joyful Flurry stamp set and coordinating Frosted Flurry dies for the sentiment and snowflakes. I've also used the Layering Circles dies. 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog - I hope you enjoyed my project today! 
Now it's time to check out the other projects in the blog hop!
