Stretch Your Christmas Supplies with Beautiful Blizzard by Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome!
I have the third set, and last, from my "Stretch your supplies" class for you today and I used a couple of different stamp sets again but kept with a super #simplestamping one layer design. So quick and easy to create, especially in multiples or in a hurry ;-)
I used the super gorgeous gold edged cards from the Autumn/winter catty (links at the end of the post) as they are just such a great starting point for any card really, lets see...
 So, I'll chat about the Christmas version first today.
I started by stamping the "splodge" from Beautiful Blizzard twice using Blushing Bride ink.
 And then adding snowflakes from the same set using Merry Merlot ink.
Stamp the sentimetn on an offcut of white card and finish with a few sequins and it's as simple as that! And even the envelopes have gold trim!
 So for the non-Christmas make I stamped the same splodge on another gold edges card.
 And I topped this version with a heart and stars images from the Little Twinkle stamp set. The sentiment is from another Christmas set "Spirited Snowmen" and as you can see it can also be used all year round too ;-)
And once more together again today.
So, I do hope you take a second look at your "Christmas" stamps again after seeing my ideas this last few days, if you would like to see all the cards together then here's A LINK to see all six cards in this mini series.
I'd love to know what you think (in the comments) or of course feel free to share your creations, Christmas or otherwise,  on my Craft with Cards and a Cuppa Facebook page, HERE.
Thanks for looking today and I'll be back soon with more crafty creations!
Happy stamping :-)

So, I decided to use the Winter Woods bundle teamed with a sentiment and some adorable little stars from the Farmhouse Elements to make this fun card...
The background paper is from the All Is Bright DSP pack
and a thin strip of glimmer paper adds some (always needed) bling...

Stretching the "Merry Christmas To All" Bundle

Hello there,
I'm finally back with another card from my "Stretch your Christmas Supplies further" class last week :-)
For these cards I used the Merry Christmas to all dies for both cards and the matching stamps with snowflakes from Beautiful Blizzard for one and stretched my supplies by adding a birthday sentiment and  a mini butterfly for the other, let's see...
 So here's the birthday version a little closer. I inadvertently used a retired set for the "birthday" sentiment but you could use any! See the Sunshine Sayings set which goes with the Sunshine Wishes dies used for this butterfly...
 I embossed the white card layer on both cards using the Tin Tile folder, cutting t large enough so it peeks out from behind the edges of the blue card layer and also the inside, die cut circle...
TIP: I used the stitched edge framelits to cut out the circle so I can use it on another project but you can also used the regular circle frameilts too!
 I created the ombre "Happy" by watercolouring on watercolour paper with Navy and Balmy Blue ink using my aqua painter. Leave to dry or speed it up with a heat tool before die cutting. I like to layer up by die cutting three more "happy's" from white card and topping them with the watercoloured layer.
And here's a closer look at the festive version. I used the Blizzard thinlits die for the snowflakes...
 And as I didn't use twine on this version I adhered the top layer flat to the tin tile embossed layer, making it easier to post which is always a good thing at Christmas, right?
 So, that's todays pair of cards! I hope I have inspired you a little and maybe to keep your Christmas stash somewhere closer to hand this year? Which sets will you use to make more than Christmas cards?
Back soon with my third and final make from this class.
 'Till then, happy stampin'
