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.

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.

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.

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.

6th Batch Of Christmas Cards 2019 – Guilded Images

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog
Guilded Images On Christmas Cards

I’m still working on my batches of Christmas cards made using items from the Hunkydory Collection I bought, but I fancied haveing a bit of a change of style the middle of the week and decided on some stamping and then guilding the stamped image.

I’m calling this post the “6th Batch” but in reality it is only 2 cards.  Having had a lingering virus for quite some time, I now have a secondary infection in my ear makeing me dizzy and nauseous, so did nothing for a couple of days (even had to have nephew go out and feed my fish and get clothes cleaner had put in the machine out).  The antibiotics are working thankfully, so I did spend an hour or so just sitting by the kitchen table to stamp half a dozen images and guild them, but only managed to put two together into cards later on after a rest.

I needed to make a Christmas Card for a challenge on the Artisan Design Fan Group over on Facebook – the group is called Create with Artisan Design if you are interested in joining.  So wanted to challenge myself to make a simple Christmas card without having any Artisan Design Christmas stamps.

Then, the second card.  I had seen an angel stamp I loved on somebody’s card a month or more ago.  They said the stamp was by Chocolate Baroque, so off I went to the site to have a look whether they still sold it.  They did – but while I was there I saw that they did some other lovely Christmas stamps as well.  Couldn’t afford every one I liked – but in the end decided on a set of 5.  Wps!

What I Did

Card 1

For the Christmas card with no Christmas stamps I started with a fern stamp and a couple of leaf stamps from Artisan Design UK.  All were stamped using flitter glue and guilded.  I stamped the fern three times, moving the paper about a mm en each direction.  This gave the stamped image a fuller look and made it look more like a tree.  I stamped the leaves out five times each.

The “tree” was cut out as a rectangle and a line scored 0.5cm in from each side as an embossed line.  This was matted onto a piece of red cardstock and trimmed to leave a small border.

I stuck a large, clear, faux gem to the top of the “tree” and a lot of medium sized faux gems of different colours all over it.

I scored and folded in half a sheet of hammered cardstock and stuck the matted image on with foam tape.

I took a small piece of torn cardstock, about the size of a 5p piece, and put a blob of glue gel in the centre.  I then trimmed the stamens to be shorter and pushed them into the centre of the glue before giving the leaves some shape and pusing them in in two rows, the largest outside and the smallest in between the largest and the stamens.  I left the glue set on this before I glued it to the card front.  The card was finished off with a printed insert and a peel-off on the front.

Card 2

For this card I chose the Rejoice angel from Chocolate Baroque.  Again I stamped in flitter glue and guilded.  I cut around the angel to make a rectangular topper then decided to make it a little different and cut of the top portion right up to the edge of the stamped image.  I put a “shaddow” around the outside edge of the angel using two shades of Prism Craft Markers.

I matted this topper onto a piece of Artisan Design paper.  This matted topper was put onto a layer of white lightweight cardstock before once again being trimmed and matted onto the second half of the same piece of Artisan Design paper, but this time with the paper in the opposite direction to the way I’d put it directly under the angel.

I scored and folded in half a sheet of hammered cardstock and stuck the matted topper directly to the card front.

I then stuck a lot of tiny AB faux gems on the paper mat behind the angel’s head and wings.

This card was finished off with a peel-off greeting on the front and a printed insert on the inside.

What I Used
Photos Of The Two Cards

This is the one made with the fern and leaves stamps.

I’ve taken photos from several different angles to try and get the shine on the poinsettia, tree, and lights to show.

And this is the second card made using the angel stamp.

Again I’ve taken several photos to try and get the shine to show.

I’m impressed that even the very fine lines of the facial features have been picked up when stamped in glue and guilded.

.

I have stamped out a few more of the Chocolate Baroque images and guilded them the same time as I did the images for these two cards, so hopefully I will have them made up into simple cards to show you before long.

5th Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – Welsh Cards

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

What I Used

For these I used toppers from the collection along with using co-ordinating patterned cardstock or plain coloured Adorable Scorable as the base card.

3rd Batch Of Christmas Cards

3rd Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – English Cards

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

A few weeks ago I showed you an assortment of Birthday and Sympathy cards I’d made, ready to send a box full to the boss of our carers who wanted to buy a few, so she had plenty to choose from.  She’s now phoned me to say she wants to keep the whole box full so will be totting up the total and sending me the money.  That will be a nice portion towards the cost of this month’s crafting goodies as I think I’ll need some more various sticky stuff to make all the Christmas cards I need to make.

She also asked me to make her another 60th birthday card and a retirement card.  So, while I’m still going to try and keep working on a few batches a week of Christmas cards over the next month or so, I will need to set a little time aside in the next week to create these requested cards.

Today I have my 3rd batch of Christmas cards to show you, this time a pack of 6 very simple English ones, and one more ornate Welsh one.

What I Used
Pack Of 6 Cards

I used a page from the little square book from the Hunkydory collection stuck flat for each card, adding a greeting from one of the die-cut sheets for some of them.  Each has a printed insert inside.

Single Christmas Card

First Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019

First Batch Of Welsh Christmas Cards For 2019

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

I’ve been saying that I need to get on with my Christmas card making for months. I usually have the majority of my Christmas cards made over the summer with just the last few batches to do in the autumn. But, for a variety of reasons, I didn’t get any completed during the summer this year.

I did start, in fact the ones I’ve completed yesterday were more or less complete the first week in August, but I needed to print out inserts for them and put a “Nadolig Llawen” (Welsh for Happy Christmas”) greeting on them, and at the time I couldn’t find any peeloffs or banner greetings left over from last year, so I had to order some and by the time they arrived I was working on other projects.

But now I’m back working on my Christmas cards.

Today I have one pack of 6 plain cards to show you, as well as one more elaborate and dimensional card that is packaged for sale on it’s own.

What I Used
Pack Of 6 Cards

These are very simple, 6″ x 6″, cards on kraft card base cards with a white insert.

Single Christmas Card

This is the front look of the dimensional card.

And the next two are angled views to give you an idea of the dimension.

.

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.

3 Christmas Cards

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
3 Christmas Cards

While I was busy makeing my batches of Christmas cards earlier this year one of the carers who come to help Mam and I asked me if I could make some cards for her that were personalised.  She wanted one each for her two grandaughters as well as one from the dog to her husband.

These are what I made.

She saw me using an image of a mole, from a Hunkeydory collection that I’ve had for a while, and immediately thought of their dog who is always finding moles and presenting them to her husband.  She wanted something a bit more ornate than the flat card I was working on at the time, and for it to be personalised to Dad.

There were several mole pictures in the collection so madeing something for her wasn’t a problem.  The card is around 8″ square. I had the matching background cardstock so put that inside.  I cut a panel out of the front and taped acetate in it’s place.  Before I added the two decorative panels onto the front, which were cut from the A4 background sheet I used inside, I cut two more strips of acetate that were longer than the gap. These were also stuck across the front but bowed.

Once the decorative panels were in place I put one strip of red liner, ultra racky, tape dow the center of the topper and stuck it to the center of the top bowed acetate.

I then die cut a Happy Christmas and glued it to the bottom strip of acetate so it looks to be floating.

 

You can see the 2 items floating in this photo just about. Sorry my photos haven’t turned out the best.

I then die cut the letters DAD and stuck them onto the right hand side panel using 3mm deep foam tape.

And this is what the card looks like from the front.

I made a box to ptesent this card in because of the dimension.

Next it was a card for one of the grandaughters.  The carer liked the image of a little girl on the stairs from another Hunkeydory collection.

This time I made an A4 size card.  I stuck a whole sheet of A4 cardstock that matched the chosen image on the ouside of the card, and a matching insert inside.

I put decorative line peeloffs all round the outside a few mm in from the edge and then set about die cutting the little girl’s name and Happy Christmas out of gold and green cardstock  for the Happy Christmas I stuck the gold version onto the green slightly offset and stuck the words directly to the card front using wet glue.

I did the letters of the name the other way around – green on gold.  After a discussion with our carer about whether she wanted the letters of the name on straight or at jaunty angles she decided on jaunty. So I stuck them on with foam tape to give them dimension.

I also used different depths foam tape to stick on the framed topper.

I also put together two A4 sized envelopes for this card and the next. Think they came pre cut from Kanban.

Next it was on to the second grandaughter’s card.  She isn’t 1 yet so 1 Christmas was needed somewhere on the card together with her name.  The cute Santa image, from another Hunkydory collection, chosen by the carer has a Christmas greeting on it, and I had a coordinating background cardstock for this one as well.  This time I stuck a sheet of foil patterned cardstock onto the A4 base card and then trimmed the coordinating cardstock before attaching it to the card with fingerlift tape so that it was framed by the foiled first sheet.

This time I cut the greetings and name out of white Adorable Scorable and another sheet of the same foiled cardstock, and I stuck the foiled offset over the white for all the lettering.  The Christmas wad stuck directly to the card and the other letters and the topper were stuck on with foam tape.

And here we have the finished card.

Had to take the photo in more gloomy conditions than I’d like because all the foil lettering just gave a lot of glare in brighter sunlight.

That’s it from me for today.  Have a great day whatever you are doing.

More Christmas Cards – A Bit Of A Variety

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
More Christmas Cards With A Bit Of A Variety

-oOo-

As anybody who has viewed my blog posts over the last few weeks will have seen, this year I decided to make up packs of Christmas cards, which I’ve been putting into cello bags with a bit of paper with the bag price and my details. These cards have mostly been quick and easy cards, around a half stuck completely with fingerlift tape to keep the dimension flat, with some using recycled cards as toppers.

But I have made some more dimensional cards, and some more ornate cards, which I’ve individually bagged and priced.

These most definately will not go through the UK post using a standard letter stamp.

This first one is a decoupaged one made using a Hunkydory decoupage sheet and layered using 2mm or 3mm deep foam tape.  I used a greeting banner, also stuck using foam tape, and some sticky back gems, to finish the card off.

I should have gone a bit at an angle for this close-up of the decoupage as the fact that it is heading on for an inch deep doesn’t show in this photo.

Here’s the card.  It has a matching insert with a peeloff greeting.

For this next card I used a Kanban 8″ square foiled border base card.

I used the Kit N Caboodle Circle Cutter to cut out the circle the image is sitting on as well as the white and silver circular frames.

The Nativity scene cuts were cut from silver mirror card using this year’s Tattered Lace Christmas Nativity dies.

I used my Brother ScanNCut to draw the greeting and the holly leaf cluster in glue onto parchment before I foiled them in silver.

I cut a strip of white cardstock the right size to go behind my greeting, cut the greeting a little longer than needed so that it could be wrapped around the card and attached with tape on the back, so that no glue would show on the front. Another, longer, piece of silver cardstock was cut out and trimmed at the ends.  I firstly glued the backing circle to my base card, then glued on the die cut Bethlehem scene. I glued the white frame circle onto the silver one before attaching them to the card front with 3mm deep shaker foam tape.  The same tape was also used to attach the layered greeting.  As it was a single element I just hand cut the holly, rather than getting the ScanNCut to do it, and used a dab of glue behind a berry to attach it to the card.  A dab of glue was used behind the star and the camel’s legs to attach them to the frame.

This photo is taken at a slight angle and gives a bit of a better view of the dimension.

The next one is another made using some items from Hunkydory.  This time one with a Nativity scene.

It is decoupaged and very dimensional, as I’ve tried to show with these photos.

And this is what it looks like from the front.

So, that’s it for today – a small assortment of cards made up where a percentage of the money raised will go towards the work of our Sunday School.

I’ll still have some more Christmas card posts to come from the batches I made during August, so please do pop back to have a look.
