I've been playing

The last couple of days have been spent designing cards for the Christmas Stamp-a-Stack event that I am holding on 4 October but I've also been playing with the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and matching framelits.

At last Saturday's All Day Event, one of the things that everyone got to make was a box to hold all the cards that they made. I decided to adapt the box and make it as a holder for some Christmas cards that I have made.


I saw the original idea for this box on Pinterest and managed to trace it back to Teneale Williams. I thought I would adapt it so that it took UK sized cards and put my own slant on it by using the Hardwood stamp and also the Wondrous Wreath stamp set.

I went a bit mad with stamping and die cutting the wreaths so I had a quite a few left that I turned into card fronts. I made two of each, the first using Whisper White card stock that was embossed using the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder and the second pair using the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack.






The Stampin' Up! products used to make the card box are:



Did you know that 4 October is World Card Making Day? I know what I'll be doing that day, hopefully you will have some time to craft too.

A couple of quick things to quickly mention today. Firstly, the new Weekly Deals are now up and secondly the Clearance Rack has also been updated. Go check out those bargains by clicking on the link to my Online shop in the left hand margin.

  2. Thank you for your kind comments, Dawn. The Wondrous Wreath Bundle contains both the Wondrous Wreath stamp set (9 stamps) and the Wonderful Wreath framelit dies (7 dies) but you can purchase them separately if you would rather. The bundle saves you 15% on the individual prices.
