Don't put away your Christmas stamps!

Today we carefully packed away and stored all our pretty Christmas decorations, ready to pull out again next year.  But don't relegate your Christmas stamps and accessories to the same fate.  Take a careful look at the imagery and words in your Christmas stamp sets, critically look at patterns and colours on your Christmas accessories, and you may be surprised to realise that most of your products can be used year-round.  Take the Festive Farmhouse Suite for example, these homely products have lovely imagery, patterns, and colours that can be used for projects beyond Christmas.  Here's two sweet thank you cards that use the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and coordinating Farmhouse Framelits Dies...

Farmhouse Christmas Thank You Card

Bundles: Farmhouse Christmas Stamp Set + Farmhouse Framelits Dies (photopolymer: 148478).  Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento (132708), Lovely Lipstick (147140).  Markers: Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends (144601), Color Lifter (144608).  Card/Paper: Soft Sea Foam (147012), Crumb Cake (121685), Flirty Flamingo (141421), Whisper White (106549).  Accessories: Lovely Lipstick 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (146952).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Corrugated 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (148026), Subtle 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (143706), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (144108).

These two cards were created using the same products, but each has it's own twist.  This first card has the house stamped twice on Crumb Cake card stock in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  One of those houses are die-cut, the shutters, door, and porch coloured with Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends, then it's embossed with the Corrugated embossing folder.  The roof is cut from the second house, coloured with Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends, and then added to the first house with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.  This is added to a card base with some Lovely Lipstick 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon looped behind.

This second card is similar to the first but, instead of using the whole house, I have trimmed it down and used only the taller section, which looks like a townhouse...

My Christmas Cards

The brief for my Christmas cards this year was that they needed to be simple, as I needed to create quite a lot of them, but needed some texture and a little wow-factor.  To simplify the process I decided on a single Christmas card design and then used tools like the Stamparatus to mass produce them for posting to friends, family, and colleagues.

Rejoice Christmas Card

Stamps: His Light (wood: 147739, clear: 147736).  Ink: Coastal Cabana (147097), VersaMark (102283).  Card/Paper: Poppy Parade (121694), Coastal Cabana (131302), Garden Green (108605), Shimmery White (121717), Whisper White (106549).  Accessories: Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels (146924), White Stampin' Emboss Powder (109132).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Tin Tile 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (147906), Sprig Punch (148012), Stamparatus (148187), Embossing Buddy (103083), Heat Tool (129056), Aqua Painter (103954), Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430)

Here's a snapshot of the Christmas cards in production...

Rejoice Christmas Card

I chose the His Light stamp set for this year's Christmas cards because I loved the calligraphy and the words really spoke to me.  I used the beautiful, big "Rejoice" stamp as the focal point.  It was white embossed on to Shimmery White card stock and then a quick wash of Coastal Cabana ink applied over the top to make it pop.  To the left is the Tin Tile Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which is my favourite right now, and it's finished with a little flourish of punched greenery and red rhinestones.

His Light Stamp Set
His Light Wood-Mount Stamp Set (147739) - $44.00 $30.80
His Light Clear-Mount Stamp Set (147736) - $34.00

My Christmas card is a z-fold card and it opens like this...

Rejoice Christmas Card

I think I nailed the brief!  I love how this Christmas card came out and the beautiful words from the His Light stamp set.  If you too love this stamp set then make sure you order it soon as it is one of the retiring products in the Year-End Closeout sale and it will be discontinued after 2 January.

I am a stay-at-home mum with three kids and a wonderfully supportive husband.  I love craft, but stamping and card making is my passion.  I also enjoy extending card-making and stamping techniques to create 3-D projects and gifts. 

I was introduced to Stampin' Up! a over ten years ago and I quickly fell in love with their high-quality, coordinating products and, soon after, became an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I now hold regular workshops in my home focusing on the fabulous papercraft products Stampin' Up! has to offer. 

I enjoy sharing what I know with others and inspiring their stamping creativity.
