Stampin’ Up! Artisan Blog Hop {Choose Christmas}

 Stampin' Up! Christmas Card| Simple and Clean| Teneale Williams

I hate to scare you but Christmas is

less then 20 weeks away, just over 130 days!


Stampin’ Up! Have the Holiday Catalogue releasing at

the end  of August and this has helped push me into the

Christmas mood and I am starting my Christmas cardmaking.

By Teneale Williams| Christmas Cards using Choose Happiness.

Demonstrators have had the opportunity to prepared

from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue,

see that fabulous greeting “Very Merry Christmas to you”

its a little sneak peak to one of the coming Christmas sets.

By Teneale Williams| Using non Christmas stamp set, Choose Happiness.

I case’d a card I posted earlier this week to create this card,

I knew it was a fast card to create and looks good also.

I think I am going through a “simple” faze at the moment.

The other thing about this card is, I used a stamp set that

is a non Christmas set, called Choose happiness

Choose happiness

As you can see, a great stamp set!

And I have used the leaf and boarder images.

Inside of card

Above you can see the inside design of the card.

By Teneale Williams| Tag A Bag Gift Box, cut the  acetate sleeve open then attach to wall of box.

I love to share what I create, and I am found of giving

a set of handmade cards as a gift, all gifts need to look pretty!

Trim the acetate sleeve of the tag a bag gift box

I have taken the Tag A Bag Gift Box and cut down the center

of acetate sleeve and applied Sticky Strip.

Then attached it to the inside wall of the box, now the acetate acts as

a cover to my cards.  To open and access the cards, I have not applied adhesive

the acetate at the back, it is simply slipped between the ribbon and box wall.

Attach the acetate sleeve to the inside wall of the tag a bag gift box

The Berries on the card fronts look really effective

Now we have Blendabilities, you can use these markers

to colour over own white pearls and in this case

I now have Cherry Cobbler Pearls.

Use #Blendabilities to color pearls. Here Cherry Cobbler was used
