Creative Inkers Christmas Blog Hop


Welcome to another fantastic Creative Inkers Blog Hop. This time we are doing a Christmas one to get you all excited for the up-coming season and of course to give you some great ideas for your own Christmas projects.

I have used the stamp set called Get Your Santa On from our new Holiday Catalogue.

For this first card I made it for a recent team training day held by Stampin Up as a swap. I kept it very simple as I made a few of them. I have used the Santa stamp and coloured him in using our Cherry Cobbler Blendabilites. I have then backed it on a scallop circle piece of cherry Cobbler cardstock. I have embossed the background using the Lucky Stars Textured embossing folder, also from the Holiday Catalogue. The sequin on his hat is from  Frosted Sequins.


For the second card I have cased this one from pinterest by Kathleen Wingerson.  I just love how it turned out. I have cut out a star in Red Shimmer card and also in Acetate and stuck them over a cut out piece on the card base. I have then used a glue dot and stuck the santa image to the acetate.  I have used the Confetti stars punch to punch out the little stars scattered around the card. For the inset I have added back the star that was cut out of the front and stuck that on a piece of Cherry cobbler cardstock.

Clever Owls

Good afternoon, today I have a cake and matching card to share with you, that I made for my sons teacher’s 30th birthday last month. His block at school are called the clever owls so it was only fitting that the card and cake were one too.

Both owls are identical in size as I used the same tools for both.

First of all here is the cute card I made:

I have used the circle framelits for the owls body, and embossed the centre part with the stars folder. the bow is made using two hears and sticking a circle in the middle of them. The feet are just scallop circles. I have done an ombre effect down the side of the cake.

Here is the matching cake:
