"Be Jolly" Santa


Hi and welcome to my blog,

Today's post is using the Be Jolly Stamp set from the new mini Catalogue,



The idea for this card came from Nigezza.co.uk https://youtu.be/9Ag2XIZAn7A
Gez made a card with Santa in his PJ's which I thought was really cute.

My cards are variations of Santa in his suite using different shapes for his Beards.
Diorama Dies and the Celebration Labels dies which I think are retired.

the card size is:

Real Red card stock 
8" x 8"
scored at 4"

Red front mat -  3.3/4" x 7.3/4"

Basic White inside mat 3.7/8" x 7.7/8"

Black glitter paper 4' x 1"
plus scrap for buttons

Brushed Metallic cardstock for the buckle
scrap basic white for the sentiment
and Wonderful snowflakes



with wonderful snowflakes on the sides of this card


and the Celebration Labels dies for this beard.

Here is the link for Stampin with Jilli where I found the idea for dimensionals 


I have to say that I love designing Christmas cards..

It has been fun to make these cards and to play with something that is different.

Thanks for joining me today and I hope you like my little project/s.

Delicate Dahlia's Fun Fold Card

 Hi and welcome to my blog,

Today's post is all about using the lovely Delicate Dahlia's stamp set from Stampinup.


I have made a few cards using Versamark ink and the Soft Pastel set from Stampinup in the current catalogue 2021-22

card size 

base - 9.1/4" x 5.1/2"

scored at 1.1/2", 2.3/4", 6.1/2", 7.3/4"top mat - 4" x 5.1/4"

Fresh freesia base mat - 4.1/2" x 5.1/2"

side panels - 1.1/4" x 5.1/2" you need 2

back panel - 3.1/2" x 5.1/4"  to write on 

scrap for little bag

scrap for sentiment

After shaving off some of the soft pastel chalk into a paint pallet, I stamped the large dahlia flower with Versamark ink and then using a finger dauber to gently rub over the stamped image to apply the shaved pastel, the more pastel you use the darker the flower will become, continue stamping one image at a time as the versamrk will start to dry out and you wouldn't see where you had already stamped or that's what I've found.

For this card Ive used night of navy, coastal cabana, granny apple green, mossy meadow and a pink from my own sets of Pastels chalks from when I was painting a long while ago.


Back to write message.

For the card below I used daffodil delight, poppy parade in the centres of the dahlias, the leaves are as above.

the 2 cards below Ive used Quiet Meadow stamp set for the flowers and Beautiful Friendship for the leaves









It has been fun to make these cards and to play with something that is different.

Thanks for joining me today and I hope you like my little project/s.

 using the Stampinup coloured pencils for the image.

The string of lights is from a retired clear set Festive corners.


the card is 8"x8"

Cherry cobbler mat - 7.6/8" x 3.7/8"
basic white inside mat - 7.7/8" x 3.5/8" 

a scrap of cherry cobbler 7.7/8" x 3.5/8" is torn to make a rough edge for the inside



on my previous blog post I've shown the Spring, summer & Autumn versions using this stamp set.
