Merriest moments, Ribbons, Tidings and Trimmings

More Merriest Moments playing

I made these cards over a couple of days and filmed the process for my YouTube channel. I had so much fun playing with the Merriest Moments bundle. The hybrid embossing folder has captured my mojo and I’ve got so many ideas for playing with it.

Firstly I’ve got the plain embossing folder run through where I added colour using the blending tool and then added the sentiment and some of the flowers. I also added in sone die cut sprigs from the Christmas Tidings dies too.

I finished off with a mat of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and some sequins to add a bit of bling. The embossing folder is so pretty and the blending tool makes adding soft colour so easy. Beautiful and simple.

Next up I die cut and embossed the central panel and added colour to the raised foliage with Stampin Blends pens. I kept to a green theme and loved how clean this looked.

Next I added some of the stamped and die cut leaves. Then because I stamped the sentiment slightly wonky I decided to make the whole card a little wonky. I found some sparkly gems in the stash and added those to finish off.

The final one is where the more intricate die I added ink with ink smooshing technique and watercolouring with ink.

I die cut the panel using Evening evergreen to add a lovely base and frame to the panel. The finishing touches for this were some sequins and the pretty green ribbon.

Love how these three cards came together. I still have many more ideas on using these products so watch this space to create more.

Happy crafting!

New Christmas goodies

A quick play with new Christmas goodies from Stampin Up… the fabulous Merriest Moments bundle. Created this card on my first play.

Went for a slightly unusual colour combo… Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Just Jade… but think it works nicely.

It was just a little play using scraps from the scraps box.

Love the texture from the embossing folder and the die cut panel. Also those flowers and leaves are fabulous.

Looking forward to playing more with this.

Happy crafting!
