I stamped the champagne glasses onto vellum and embossed with gold powder to give it an appearance of real champagne.

Foiled Tree ~ Design Team member Karen

I have four projects to share today - all Christmas cards.  When I first saw this gorgeous tree made of stars in the Mr & Mrs Snow stamp set... I knew that it was wanting to be foiled!  I am so happy that I did... I love the end result:
 After running it through my machine, I cut it out and mounted on a simple triangle of dark green cardstock, adding a little brown base - then created a square card with my patterned tree paper.  I added a snowflake die cut, and cut the word "joy" out of some gold cardstock.  A few gold sequins added to the glimmer.
It's always hard to photograph anything shiny!  It's got quite a lovely shimmer in real life.
A few weeks back, I did some butterfly cards using the A4 Alphabet & Numbers stamp set, and wanted to try using it for some Christmas cards:
I'm sure you've seen variations on this idea before, but I wanted to give it a try with Colourific's fabulous font!
I stamped the words, leaving spaces where the O's should be... then I photocopied them onto some white cardstock (the foil only sticks to toner), and then ran them all through my Minc machine with gold foil to make my shimmery letters.
 I die cut two snowflakes from gold cardstock, and layered them onto each sentiment.
 All of the words are adhered to the base with pop dots for a little dimension.
And of course, I couldn't resist using my sewing machine to sew around the panels.  *So if you don't have Christmas stamp sets on hand, but want to put some holiday cards together - this is a quick & easy idea, and a great way to use a font.  

*There are brand new stamp sets being released by Colourific on December 1st!  Be sure to check out the blog in the coming weeks to see all of the new ideas from the Design Team.

Holly Jolly Christmas by Anila

Hello friends!
Happy Monday. Hope you guys have a great week ahead.
This is Anila here from India!

Today, here on the blog, I have these two simple CAS cards featuring the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set from the Colourific store. 
I am sure you all are completely drowned in making Christmas cards as it is just a few weeks away. I am sharing these cards which are quick and easy to make. 

Let's get on with the cards without further delay.

CARD 1
My first card features the string of lights image from the stamp set. 


I stamped the images three times on a white card panel randomly. Stamped the sentiment in between the images. I coloured each light with different colours. Added a layer of glossy accents over them. Once it was dry, I added a few yellow pencil lines indicating the glow of the lights to all of them.
Foam mounted this panel on a white card base.

Close-up image!
(You can see the lines more clearly in this picture)

CARD 2
For the second card, I have used the Christmas tree image from the set.


On a white card panel, I heat embossed the image using Gold embossing powder. I filled the lights with various colours and covered them with glossy accents. Once dry, I brushed some sparkle over the lights(Check the close-up) for some shimmer. 
On a strip of card, I heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder. Stamped the two Holly leaves from the Christmas minis stamp set. I die-cut both the panels using a curved border die to create some interest. Foam mounted them on a green card base. 





That's all for today! 
Hope to have inspired you with my cards.

Easy 3D Stamped Flowers

Hi everyone today I am here sharing a different way to use your stamp sets.  I took the Colourific stamp set: Moderne Flowers 
I first stamped the images using Oxide inks onto vellum paper and applied some clear embossing powder and then heat set. I then fussy cut them and cut between each petal so I could shape them.  Each flower has 2 layers and then I added some stamens.
Makes perfect 3D flowers for your card fronts.  Finally I stamped the sentiment from the Champagne and Cocktails set!
I hope everyone has enjoyed my post and thanks so much for stopping by.

Modern Christmas Tree cards - DT Member: Verity


Hello! So good to be here. It's Verity here from Pretty Little Button with another card for you today. Make sure you check out the fabulous Christmas stamps from Colourific as it isn't too late to still make some more. These clean and simple Christmas cards were the first set of cards I made with the Christmas stamp collection from Colourific and I think they are my favourite. I just love this tree!


Modern Christmas Tree cards details:


To create these cards, stamp the modern tree from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set in versamark ink and heat emboss in a colour of your choosing.


Next, decide and find a colour corresponding embellishment to act as the baubles for the tree.


For the kraft card, I use a selection of different sized red and gold mat sequins and adhered these down with liquid glue. The tree was then die cut with a stitched rectangle die and adhered onto a white card base. 


For this grey card, I use a selection of differently sized mat and shiny sequins. I fussy cut around the tree and adhered this down onto a grey card panel that had been spray with some shimmer spray. 


To finish the grey card off, I foam mounted a stitched rectangle frame out of matching kraft card. 


For this card, I used white nuvo drops to act as the bauble for the tree. Again this tree was fussy cut-out and foam mounted on to a navy card panel.


A sentiment from the Christmas Time Text stamp set was added to a strip of white card on the front on the card panel, and the whole panel was mounted onto a white card base.


I hope you love today's card and don't forget to check out the stamp set, link below. If you loved this card please leave a comment below as we would love to hear from you. 





Until next time!

Marleen DT - Colourful Christmas Card

Hello Beautiful People
and welcome to my blog.

Its once again my turn to share a bit of inspiration for
Colourific.
 
I have once again used the  "Stitched Friends" for my main image. I love this little snowman.
My sentiment is from the
"Christmas time text set.
My Background has been made using the tiny star stamps from the "Princess Carriage" set.
 For some reason my close up pictures have dissapeared from my pc and my phone, I do appologise but hope you can still see the card ok.

 This card was really fun to make. I started with my snowman which I stamped on to watercolour cardstock, then coloured with watercolour pencils. I finished him with lots of glitterglue lol.

While he was drying I made my background. I just took a white piece of cardstock and stamped all the little stars with different colours till I had built up the whole space.
I stamped using distress oxide inks.
Once all way dry, I matted and layered onto red cardstock and finished with my little greeting.
And that was all. Very easy and turned out very cute I think
Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

 Happy Crafting
