14th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019

14th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before). Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

This is the second half of the batch of cards I made as square ones on a chrisp, white, base card – although, as I said in my previous post – here – the photos are not showing up as crisp a white as they are in reality. I’ve made them very Clean And Simple, with very little additions to the topper, although I have put the toppers on with foam tape for a little bit of dimension.

What I Used
  • Items from Hunkydory Christmas Collection from this year
  • 6″ square cards with envelopes
  • 2mm and 3mm Shaker Foam Tape
  • Roller Glue Tape
  • Pinflair Bookbinding Glue
  • Black and Gold “Nadolig Llawen” Peeloffs
  • Glitter “Nadolig Llawen”
  • A4 White Paper – for printing out inserts
  • Paper Trimmer
What I did

You can have a look at what I did in my last post if you missed seeing that a couple of days ago.  You can find it – here.

Batch Of Cards

The insert in each card was a simple one like this.

.

That’s just about it for Christmas makes for this year.  But never fear, I have much more crafting on the go so it won’t be long before I’m back with more things to show you.

13th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

13th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Today’s batch of cards (and the next one) are square ones made on a chrisp, white, base card – although the colour in the photos is not showing up as crisp a white as they are in reality.  I’ve made them very Clean And Simple, with very little additions to the topper, although I have put the toppers on with foam tape for a little bit of dimension.

What I Used
  • Items from Hunkydory Christmas Collection from this year
  • 6″ square cards with envelopes
  • 2mm and 3mm Shaker Foam Tape
  • Roller Glue Tape
  • Pinflair Bookbinding Glue
  • Black and Gold “Nadolig Llawen” Peeloffs
  • Glitter “Nadolig Llawen”
  • A4 White Paper – for printing out inserts
  • Paper Trimmer
What I did

The cards were already scored, so it was simply a case of folding them before starting.  I chose toppers from the collection of a size that left a lot of white space on the card front, keeping the framing element if there was one with the topper.

Each topper was stuck down using 2 or 3 mm deep foam tape while the framing element was stuck directly to the card front using either the roller glue tape pen or bookbinding glue.

I added a greeting to most to finish off the front.

For the inserts I printed off a greeting and my mother and my names (I know – cheating a bit to save having to write inside each one as I’m running out of Christmas steam by now).

The inserts were trimmed to size, folded, and stuck in using the roller glue.

Batch Of Cards

The insert in each card was a simple one like this.

The central topper on each card is raised up slightly on foam tape.

.

I’m coming to the end of my Christmas makes for this year, but still have some items to blog about.  Then it will be on to the new year and more crafting.

12th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – English Cards

12th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – English Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

The batch of cards I’ve got to show you today are a bit of an assortment that I will put into a big pack where customers can choose single cards for £1 each.

This particular small batch are English cards where I’ve used greetings from within the cardmaking collection I used.  They were simply made by scoreing and folding co-ordinating cardstock from within the collection and attaching toppers and greetings.

Some have matching inserts from within the collection and some have plain, printed, paper inserts.

Unfortunately some of the cards have proved difficult to photograph with the greetings clear because of glare and whiteouts, due to bad lighting, foiling, etc.

What I Used

As well as working on my Christmas cards I have a small number of other projects on the go at the moment, so my next post might be more Christmas cards or might be something else – keep an eye out.

11th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

11th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

The batch of cards I’ve got to show you today are a bit of an assortment that I will put into a big pack where customers can choose single cards for £1 each.

What I Used

For the first card I stamped in FlitterGlu before adding guilding flakes to it once it was tacky.  I am very impressed with how sharp the image is once I rubbed off the excess flakes.  It was then trimmed and attached to matting and layering on a card.

For the other cards in this batch I used a Hunkydory Christmas collection.  I just pulled out things that went together, scored sheets of cardstock from the collection or my stash to make a base card, and then added toppers and other items.  Each card has either a plain and printed insert or an insert from the collection that matches the outside of the card.

Nadolig Llawen is Welsh for Happy Christmas.

10th Batch Of Christmas Cards – English Cards

10th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – English Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

In my last blog post I mentioned having a session of making both English and Welsh Christmas cards.  I showed you six of the Welsh cards I made in the previous post.  Today I am showing you six of the English Christmas cards I put into one pack.  There will be another post coming with the rest that I put into a big bag that people could select ones that they liked out of.

What I Did

Today’s batch didn’t require a lot of work as I chose various components from a Hunkydory Christmas cardmaking collection that all worked together.  I scored some of the co-ordinating cardstock and folded to make my base cards and used co-ordinating inserts for most of the cards, or a plain insert with either a typed greeting or used one of the greetings toppers from the colection.

9th Batch Of Christmas Cards – Welsh Cards

9th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Was expecting a visit from the doctor to see my mother so I couldn’t go back to bed to rest.  I therefore tacked makeing some more Welsh and English Christmas cards.  I wasn’t up to doing stamping and colouring so I went back to the Hunkydory collection for components to make all the cards.  In the end I had around 18 cards made.  6 Welsh cards were put together into one pack (these are what I have to show you today), 6 English were put together into another pack (keep an eye out for a post showing them in a couple of days once I finish cropping the photos and editing the blog post), and the rest were some of each that I’ve put into the big pack where people can choose individual cards from to suit their needs.

What I Used

For all six cards I’ve got to show you today I used a Hunkydory Christmas collection. I just pulled out things that went together, scored sheets of cardstock from the collection or my stash to make a base card, and then added toppers and other items. Each card has an insert that matches the cardstock I used to make the base card from the collection.

As well as working on posts for the rest of the cards I made the same day as these, I still need to make some more Christmas cards, and I have other projects on the go as well, so keep an eye out for more posts over the next few days.

8th Batch Of Christmas Cards 2019 – Welsh Cards

6th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Today’s sellection of Christmas Cards again show a collection of 6 cards I put together into a pack for selling at our Chapel, as well as one more dimensional card that I packed as an individual card for selling – it is more dimensional and ornate and I charge a little more for this type of card as they take longer to make and use up more material.

I did a couple of different shaped cards this time.  Some have a matching insert from the collection while others have a plain insert with just a printed greeting.

I just went through the collection, pulled out pieces that went together, cut and constructed.

7th Batch Of Christmas Cards 2019 – Guilded Images

Another Batch Of Christmas Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Today my makes feature a few of the Chocolate Baroque Cristmas stamps I was tempted by a few weeks ago.

If you like Chocolate Baroque stamps, or stamping and mixed media in general, you may like to note in your diaries that Lesley from Chocolate Baroque will be doing her next Craftalon on Hochanda on 17th November. You can find details of the kit available for the craftalong – here!

I went for glue and guilding flakes again this time, like the ones I showed you in a previous post – here!

What I Did

I chose three of the stamps from the Chocolate Baroque collection I’d bought and stamped them several times onto stamping card using FliterGlu.

I then put on guilding flakes, rubbed it on and rubbed it off.

Some of the images I fully coloured, some partialy coloured, and some didn’t colour at all.

I cut them out in different ways.  Some as rectangular panels, some directly round the picture and one angel leaving a round around the head area but cutting directly to the line around the bottom.

After this I scored and folded cardstock to make the base card as well cutting out an assortment of matting and layering pieces.

Everything was put together using fingerlift tape as I wanted to make a pack of flat cards for easy posting.

I finished off by sticking in the insert and putting on the “Nadolig Llawen” (Welsh for Happy Christmas) peeloff greeting.

What I Used
The Finished Cards

Pack of 6 cards.

.

I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.

Butterfly Card And More

Butterfly Card and More

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).

Today my make features a butterfly stamp by Pete Simpson of Artisan Designs UK.  If you are at the Stamperama event in Harrogate on the 9th November, Pete will be demonstrating on the Chocolate Baroque stand. He will have his Butterflies And More collection available for sale as well.

You may not know that Pete had his stamps manufactured by the people at Chocolate Baroque, so they are of excellent quality.

The second card was also made using an Artisan Design Stamp.

What I Did

I used my stamping press to stamp out all the images onto stamping card and then coloured them in using Prism Craft Markers.

The main images were cut as straight edged toppers and their corners rounded with a punch.  The required backgrounds were also cut out as straighted edged panels.  The stamped floral background piece was cut out to the edge.

I scored the two main pieces of cardstock and folded them to make landscape cards before sticking on my prepared pieces.  I used fingerlift tape throughout for these projects as I wanted them completely flat for posting.

I finished off by putting a peeloff greeting on the front and a plain insert inside.

What I Used
The Finished Cards

I was having problems getting good photos of these cards to show the true colours without them looking washed out, so, although they have no dimension, I have taken an angled photo as well as a straight on one of both cards.  I still don’t think they look true to colour on my screen, but don’t feel up to getting out my light box to re-take the photos again.

60th Birthday Card

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

60th Birthday Card

Today’s card is another that the boss of our carers requested.  It is a 60th birthday card for one of the carers.  I hadn’t had any specific instructions more than the usual “big and blingy”, so this time I took the autumn and autumnal colours as a theme as that is what I saw when looking out the kitchen window thinking about what to do – and I just happened to have a collection of very suitable cardmaking items in one of my boxes.  So out came the box, and out of the box came the collection all over the kitchen table.  A lot of shuffling around, moving bits here and there, choosing a bit, then another, and I had everything I wanted in one bundle ready to start, and the rest went back in the box for another project.

What I Did

Firstly I scored and folded the A3 sheet of cardstock to create an A4 base card.  I then trimmed a couple of sheets of cardstock from the collection so that they could be used as matting and layering under the topper, leaving a margin from one layer to the next.

The chosen topper came with a framing element so I stuck the central topper directly to the mat underneath while I put foam tape on the framing layer and put it around the topper.

As this card was requested in English I could actually use some greetings panels from the collection on this card.  One of which I put two layers of the foam tape underneath it to make it even more dimensional.

Of course, the collection didn’t come with a 60th birthday greeting so I typed one up and printed it out at the required size to fit where I wanted it to go.  I put a strip of cardstock left over from cutting one of the mats behind the greeting and cut the ends into tails before shaping it into a wave and putting some small pieces of foam tape in two places and fingerlift tape in another to keep it’s shape when stuck down.

It was then a case of embelishing by shaping some of the foiled leaves from the collection and sticking them around the card using glue gel, and also putting on some faux gems.

As I’d printed the greeting towards the top of a sheet of paper it meant that I had the majority of the sheet left after cutting the greeting panel out.  This I trimmed to a rectangular piece that I stuck to the front of the box I was recycling using fingerlift tape.  I then shaped a few more foiled leaves from the collection and stuck around the edge using glue gel.  I finished off with some of the faux gems – putting one in each corner.

What I Used
Finished Card And Box

I had trouble getting a photo to show the image clearly while at the same time showing the metallic look of the cardstock mat and the foiling on the topper and leaves, so I’ve got a couple of slightly different angled photos to show you what the card looks like.  This is the first one.

And this is the second one at a slightly different angle in different light condition.

This is an angled photo from one direction to show a bit of the dimension.

And this is another angled view from the bottom right corner, again showing that the elements on the card have been built up and shaped a bit to give dimension.

The box.

.

I have a non card related project on the go, the November calendar page I’m working on, as well as more Christmas cards part done, so it shouldn’t be too long before I have another blog post to show you.

And thank you to everybody who’s left a comment on my previous blog posts – I really do appreciate you taking the time.

You should find a box at the bottom of each post where you can leave a Comment if you feel like it.
(If you can’t see the comment box then there should be a link that says “Comments” or “Leave a Reply” and clicking on that will bring up the box.) Due to problems with Spam/advertising posts, I now moderate all comments before they go live. Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.
Notice: I’m sure you are already aware that any comments and details you  leave will be stored on the system, and those that go through moderation will be visible to the public.  You may be given the option for the system to store your details so that  you don’t have to fill in all your info each time you want to leave a comment – if you choose to accept this option then cookies will be used for this.  Cookies might also be used by the system for logging visitor and return visitor numbers as well.
