Father Christmas, Stampin’ Up style!


I love anything vintage so when I saw this Father Christmas stamp set come out in our current holiday 2016 catalogue (page 22), I fell in love!  The first thing that popped into my head was to pair it with the new Glitter Stampin’ Emboss Powder (page 7) as many of you know, I also love anything glimmar and bling!  Santa is also cut out using the NEW stitched framelits available only for November until they are released again in the new 2017 catalogue.  They will definitely be a permanent piece to my framelits collection.  They come in circles, ovals and squares for a total of 12 framelits!ShareableImage_1_NA.pngContact me to order today!


This one uses crumb cake cardstock, as well as Always Artichoke cardstock and ink.  Santa is stamped in Early Espresso and cut using the branners framelits, and colored using our Stampin Write markers.  I distressed Santa as well as the circle sentiment using a Stampin dauber using Early Espresso, and attached the circle with dimensionals.

Lastly, a surprise idea for my class attendees is a larger card, don’t worry, Ladies, I will make sure you can make some envelopes using my punch board, or take home the paper to do yourself!  I was inspired by marineetstamp.com for this one, thank you, Marine, or, better yet, merci!!!!!

This card starts with a 9×9 whisper white cardstock and is layered with Candy Cane Lane Designer Series paper and whisper white again.  I chose to distress the top layer and leave Santa and the bag of toys as is, whereas Marine had colored hers and did not distress so mine definitely has a more dark/vintage fell/look.  All stamping in Early Espresso ink.  I really liked it, so much that I’ve had to order more ribbon expedited to get it here on time for my class!! I hate when I do that to myself! But figured I’d be happy to have more of this gorgeous Real Red 3/4 inch stitched edge ribbon for my smaller gifts come Christmas (or for the cookie exchange boxes!) I know, great idea, right?
