12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 5

Latte 12 weeks

Welcome to Week 5 of The Latte Girls’ 12 Weeks of Christmas. This week Virginia Hampson is bringing us this Hybrid Scrapbook Layouts.
Using My Digital Studio digital stamps, Blendabilities, the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set with a little bit ofWashi Tape on the side!
PartSnipOfLO1a
For this week’s project, I have made use of digital stamps.  This stamp set is no longer available to purchase in rubber, but I love it so much I was very happy to know it is still as a digital download.  Once you purchase digitals, you have them for ever!  Because my printer is an inkjet, ie water based ink, it is perfect for printing out stamp images to colour in with Blendabilities.
JoyChristmasBrushStampSetDigital
I’ve used the Poinsettia and Leaf from the  Joyful Christmas digital stamp Brush set (product code135269).  There are two ways you can get these to print out.  You can either use the software My Digital Studio that Stampin Up have at a fabulous price of $24.95. Or you can  use your Microsoft Word programme.  Which ever way you want to use, you need to print out using an inkjet printer on Whisper White A4 card stock.  I worked out how many I wanted to colour in and went from there.
I used my trusty Blendabilities  to colour in the Poinsettia  in two sizes and the leaf in 3 sizes.
It’s a good idea to put print out as many as you can fit on the A4 sheet, that way you are not wasting any card stock.
Next after colouring them in, I cut them out with a small pair of paper snips.  Now if you are fortunate enough to own an electronic die cutting machine and are comfortable using its print & cut functions, then by all means, use it to cut them out.

I coloured them with Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Daffodil Yellow and Smokey Slate Blendabilities alcohol ink markers.  The lightest of the Smoke Slate being used to help give more shading and depth to my colouring.
After I cut them out, I gave the backs of the coloured & cut out image a bit of ‘burnishing’ with the stylus from my scoreboard and my bone folder too.  I put my Stampin Piercing mat underneath as cushioning.  As you can see, it’s made them more 3d looking.

I took my three rolls of washi tape (Watercolour Wonder set, main catalogue) and put a strip of each along two edges of the 12×12 so they crossed over in the bottom left hand corner.  These three Washi tapes are perfect for any occasions but really shine on a Christmas layout.  I layered my black and white photo onto Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Next I used the paint splatter stamp and some Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped around some of the background. I then placed the coloured in images around my sheet of 12×12 Whisper White card stock till I had them right where they looked best adhering them with several dimensionals & strips of snail adhesive.
 
For the year 1994, I used some cork stickers from the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot Accessory pack. 
Using the finest of the Project Life journaling pens, I did a little journaling between the lines of the washi tape and tah daah, all done, here it is!

Bright & Beautiful Meets Monday Makes

I love the Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set in the Holiday Catalogue. Team it with the star framelits and you can make numerous cards and other projects ready for Christmas. In a recent Stamp A Stack the following projects were made using these 2 products.
Bright&Beautiful2
For this card we used – Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon Ink; Frosted Sequins and 1/8″ Silver Ribbon. The card is made with Whisper White card and layered with the same.
Bright&Beautiful1
This card we cut first using the Stars framelit Dies and then embossed using the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Folder using Lost Lagoon card. Stamped using Lost Lagoon ink on Whisper White and added the All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishments with some Cherry Cobbler  Baker’s Twine and Whisper White Seam Binding. The little Banner is punched and stamped with VersaMark and embossed with White Emboss Powder.
Bright&Beautiful3
This card was a bit of fun to make and would make a great card for a man. We used Mossy Meadow and Whisper White to make this card. Using VersaMark we just stamped randomly on the Mossy Meadow and then used Iridescent Ice Emboss powder. We finished off by stamping on the Whisper White with Mossy Meadow Ink, cutting the star out with the Stars framelit Dies and mounting it with Dimensionals. We added Mossy Meadow 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. Too easy but quite effective.
Well I hope you’ve enjoyed my shares with you today. It’s my Stampin’ Up! 4th Birthday today as well, so watch out for some extra special deals for my Australian Customers this week. There will be 4 deals over 4 days.

12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 4

Latte 12 weeks

Welcome to Week 4 of The Latte Girls’ 12 Weeks of Christmas. This week Jenny Hayward is bringing us this wonderful Tiny Treat Gift Holder. It would make a marvellous gift which could be filled with all sorts of goodies.

TinyTreatGiftHolder

This little Treat Holder will fit a variety of treats all together for you to give someone special this Christmas.  Really it is just so simple.  3 of the Tiny Treat Boxes have been used and these are available in the Holiday Catalogue.  These are a bargain at $11.95 (AUS) for 24 boxes.  They are so cute and there are so many different ways you can use them.  This would be a really cute gift to give someone as a little extra or for those “Hard to buy for” people.

Jenny has adhered 3 of the boxes together with Sticky Strip and then decorated them using the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper.  Add some stars from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and cut with the Star Framelits. Additional stars were cut from Gold Foil Sheets with the smallest Stars Framelits.  The gorgeous Red Satin Ribbon finishes the box off.  Of course, you can decorate these boxes however you like.  Fill some Cellophane bags with treats and tie them off.  Jenny used the Gold Twine for this.

And of course, we have a special bundle for you this week to help you create this project. These are the items you will receive in your Bundle AND receive 10% off!  

Bundle Price is $44.80 plus Shipping and Handling.

Product List
Please email me if you’d like the full instructions for this project. Come back again on Saturday for a Bonus Project in the 12 Weeks of Christmas with The Latte Girls.
