Quilted Christmas double front card

I have a quick little project to share today. I have this idea for a while and so pleased it turned out as I’d hoped. There are so many different ways I could have finished it off, but I went for this way today.

It’s a double fronted card using the Quilted Christmas suite in the Holiday catalogue.

I just love how the different dies work in the set, here I have used one to create a window in the card front. This also has a coordinating framelit so that you can punch out the element to use separately. Here is a project that uses as an element.

I started with a card base in Real Red which I trimmed and scored it so the fold was at the top. I punched out the window using one of the dies from the Quilt Builder framelit dies. Next I trimmed some Whisper White cardstock down to 100mm x 280mm and scored at 140mm. I adhered this to the bottom of the card base with snail adhesive. These measurements allow for an even red border all the way around.

I trimmed some Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper down to 95mm x 135mm. This fit in the inner front white panel and more snail adhesive holds it in place. Here I used some of the Gingham pattern but there are so many that could easily work from this stack, they are all just so lovely.

Next I trimmed a piece of Whisper White to 80mm x 35mm and cut flag to one end. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink and some flowers in Lemon Lime Twist ink to the left edge. Both of these stamps are from the Christmas Quilt stamp set in the bundle. I trimmed a flag from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and layered that under my white flag, centering the middle of the flags. I adhered the flags to the DSP with snail adhesive.

Using the same little flower stamp, I stamped two more in Garden Green ink and fussy cut those using my paper snips. I adhered those with Mini Dimensionals. How ever did we live before these came along?!!

I stamped the sentiment on the inside in Garden Green and some stars to decorate in Real Red ink colours.

Last was the front. Here I punched out a flower from the two framelits in the set from some silver foil. I popped a Glue Dot on the back in the middle and fixed some Silver Thread. Holding it in place with one finger, I fluffed the thread to spread it out so that it framed the flower. I added another Glue Dot to hold it all secure and fixed to the front of the card. I finished off the flower with one of the gorgeous Metal Rimmed Pearl. I love these… and I just haven’t used them enough lately, so I’m sure you’ll get an overload now! I fixed a circle of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock punched using the ¾” circle punch to the back of the flower on the inside of the card, to neaten it off.

I finished off with some of yummy Quilted Christmas  ¼” Ribbon tied around the card, holding in place with some Tear and Tape, and finished with a bow. I tied the bow separately and adhered it with some Glue Dots – it was just easier, so I did it this way.

I really love this set and am planning many cards for this season with it. I hope this project inspires your Christmas projects.

Quilted Christmas pizza box

I am just so in love with the Quilted Christmas suite at the moment. I’ve been using it quite a bit. I think the Paper Stack in that suite is just so cool but I think photos in the catalogue just doesn’t quite do it justice.

I hope this great little project we made in class earlier this month will give you a better look at it and what you can do with this suite.

We decorated a Mini Pizza box and inside we made 3 note cards with coordinating mini envelopes.

The pizza boxes are just so cute, they come pre-cut and scored and flat packed in packs of 8. They also have a food-safe lining on the inside, making it great for gifts of cookies or shortbread this Christmas season.

Here we have decorated the top with a quarter of one of the patterns from the Paper stack which we matted on some Real Red cardstock. Looped with some Quilted Christmas ¼” Ribbon and a simple sentiment.

The 3 note cards we made using many of the elements from the suite, topped up with sentiments from other sets. I love how you can use the dies within the set many ways, you can either punch them into a piece of cardstock, creating a window effect or, like we have done here, used the coordinating framelit to punch out the element. There are three different elements that work like this in the set.

Both these sentiments are from the Labels to Love stamp set.

This next note card is just so cute… here we have created a tree from the elements. This is created using two different stamps in the set, stamped in two different colours. Being a Photopolymer stamp set, makes this so easy to achieve. Layered over a sentiment strip and some more of that gorgeous paper stack, this card is then topped off with some Real Red 1/8” Solid Ribbon tied in a bow.

Last, but not least in this set, is this gorgeous little flower. This is stamped and punched with the coordinating framelit, then layered over a flower which is created from framelits from this coordinating set. It’s just so easy to create lovely projects with such cleverly designed tools. Don’t you just love the Real Red teamed up with some Lemon Lime Twist – just gorgeous. This card is finished off with one of those gorgeous Facetted Gems.

All three cards have coordinating envelopes, which come ready made in packs of 40 in the Holiday catalogue. Whilst they are mini size, they are just large enough to hold a 3” x 3” note card like these. Made from Whisper White cardstock means they stamp up beautifully.

CTC144 – Quilted Christmas

CTC-BlogBanner2

So this post begins with a funny little story, especially if you just joined me from Julia. If you are starting here with me, but don’t want to miss the fun, jump back over to Julia and start there. Otherwise… welcome to the first week of caseing the 2017 Holiday catalogue. The crew are starting with caseing the Quilted Christmas suite, which features on pages 14 and 15.

So onto the story… they say no two crafters come up with the same project. Well I can tell you, this is not entirely true. Naturally the crew prepare for these hops earlier in the week and we share our projects amongst each other. So when Julia posted her gorgeous project of the Pizza box and Notecards, I laughed as it was almost identical to the one I had planned out for this hop. Now… could you imagine coming from Julia’s blog with her Pizza box and cards, to mine with Pizza box and notecards! Lucky I saw it earlier enough to change my project to this…..

My inspiration came from the little notecard project on the right, in the catalogue.

So how did I get to this creation from this idea? I hear you ask… well it was all about the small little square size of that cute paper. I was thinking about the paper in 2” square sizes as I was flicking through the Quilted Christmas paper stack when I really started to take note of the patterns within the designs. That’s when I decided one pack is not going to be enough….

So I settled on the same design in two different colours. I cut 2 ½” squares and created a square card base to match, from thick Whisper White cardstock. I adhered the squares in place, alternating the patterns.

I created a medallion element for the top from one of the framelits and Silver Foil. I added some Silver Metallic thread to the back before adhering to Real Red cardstock. I punched a square from the Stitched Shapes framelits in Garden Green and adhered it on the angle to create a diamond. I topped it off with a sentiment from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set.

Next up in the hop is Sandra Collett. Hop on over and check out her inspiration.

Sneak Peak – Quilted Christmas

Today, I have a little sneak peak of one of the new bundles coming next month in the 2017 Holiday catalogue. It’s from the gorgeous new Quilted Christmas suite.

Here I have created a cute little Christmas note card. I like note cards for this time of year, they are great for giving with a gift when you want a little more real estate than a tag.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Quilted Christmas Suite

It’s a cute size at 3” x 3”, and features the new Quilt Builder framelit dies and the Quilted Christmas, 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper.

The paper has so many cute designs and I’m sure I’ll bringing you more soon, but today I used this design. It even has lovely fine printed stitch detail to match the star shape.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Quilted Christmas Suite

The framelit I used coordinates beautifully with one of the paper designs. The framelit has two pieces – the inside star type design and a separate square framelit to punch it out. Which is really great, it allows you to punch out stars from card stock and create a window, or you can do what I did here and punch the whole piece out of the cardstock to create a separate element.

I overlayed the element to match the paper design. Used like this, it creates texture by having a raised element on the card. I adhered these to some silver foil and adhered to my cute note card base.

I added some smaller elements to the top – silver foil circle with some silver metallic thread behind and a sentiment over the top. The sentiment is from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, which carried over from last year. I used some dimensionals for height to finish off my note card.

How cute is this and I know I’ll be back with some note cards soon, as I have more ideas for you with these!!
