A Few Christmas Cards

Hi Guys,

I hope your well and your week is going great!

I Just 'popped' in to share with you a few Christmas cards that I have made, but I'm soooooooo behind in all my Christmas preparations lol, there's never enough hours in the day lol!

Here's my first card which I will call 'Dasher' lol:

I have used Stampin' Up!'s 'Dasher' Stamp and have place a AnnaBelle Stamps Mini Cherry Sprinkle on his nose so now 'Dasher' has become 'Rudolph' lol!

My colour combo is Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Whisper white and I sponged the edges with some Chocolate Chip Ink.

For my embellishments I used a piece of White web/net ribbon and a tied a piece of Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon around the net ribbon and tie in a knot.

I used SU!'s Short and Sweet Stamp Set and used the 'Very Merry' sentiment and made a tag and I also sponged around the tag edge.

To finish off I placed two Gold hanging bells on some Gold thread for something fun lol!

Here's my second card which I will call 'Glittery Flakes' lol!

For this card I used SU!'s 'Winter Post' Stamp Set and used the snow flake stamp and stamp the snowflake in Night Of Navy and Baja Breeze Ink onto my whisper White panel.

I then covered my stamped panel in Versamark ink and sprinkled on some heat and stick powder and heat this up using a heat gun and while still warm I then sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds glitter(both from SU!)tapped of the excess and used the heat gun in a short burst to set the glitter into the heat and stick powder.

I then placed my glittery panel on my Baja Breeze panel then onto my Night of Navy panel and tied some Baja Breeze stripped grosgrain ribbon and placed the layered panels onto my Baja Breeze card base.

To finish off, I made a little tag using a scallop oval and a oval punch and stamped my sentiment from SU!'s 'Best Yet' Stamp set in Night Of Navy Ink and tied the tag onto the ribbon using some Silver thread.

so that's 2 cards down and several more to go and I have a horrible feeling I wont get there lol, I wonder if we can postpone Christmas for another few weeks roflol!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you again on Friday for a card for AnnaBelle Stamps!

Till then, Take care and Keep Smiling,


  1. Love your Christmas cards Kylie. Very glittery and Rudolph looks great.

  2. Ooooh Kylie I love your glittery pretty!!! I think the first card is special too of course, but this girl loves things that shine.......wish my husband could read this before his Christmas shopping trip !!!!!!!
    Knowing him thoug, he'd come back with a tin of polish!!!! hahahaha

  3. Hi Kylie,

    They are both lovely but I really love the glittery one. I made a terrible mess the one 7 only time I tried that technique so very well done.
