Peek-a-Boo Card with Signs of Santa

I think I may have an addiction...... to the Signs of Santa Bundle! I can't help but make scenes form this set, and today I have another fun fold/interactive card for you, and it comes with a video tutorial so you can have a try too!

I made a Peek-a-Boo card for the first time, it was a little challenging finding metric measurements, so I've come up with my own measurements for A4 cardstock.  

Here's the front of the card, how cute is Santa with his list and presents ready to give to all those on the "good list"



And here is the inside with the change of sentiment via the peek-a-boo window



Tooooo cute isn't it! To see the measurements and how the card is assembled you can watch the tutorial - I'd love to hear if you make you own :)



I can't wait to see what the rest of the team has created, grab a cuppa and work your way through the list below for more interactive card inspiration!

Winter Woods #WWYS187

Welcome to another week of What Will You stamp?, this week we are showcasing the stunningly beautiful Winter Woods stamp set, which can has coordinating In the Woods Framelits (currently you can bundle and save 10%)


This set pairs and compliments both the Lovely as a Tree and Rooted in Nature stamp sets, and is not just limited to Christmas creations - although, my project is just that, I created a lovely wreath using the small foliage stamp.



I was surprised how easily this wreath came together! First, I stamped the sentiment in Real Read, then traced a circle using a framelit. Then for the fun of creating a "random wreath" by stamping the image 3 times before re-inking in Pear Pizzazz, just positioning at a different angle and moving around the circle guide. To finish I dressed it up with a double bow using Real Red Mixed Satin Ribbon and some of the little pine cone die cuts from the stamp set.

Head over and check out the projects with this set from the Design Team, we would love you to participate in our weekly challenges at What Will You Stamp? why not play along with this week - We'd love to see what you create!   

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love to be yours.

Thinking of You with Spirited Snowmen

Welcome to today's Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special guest Sarah Berry from the UK, you may be familiar with her blog Stamp with Sarah, if not pop over and take a look, I'm sure you will find some crafting inspiration from her projects.

Our task is to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of Sarah's creations, after viewing many of her stunning creations I finally decided on the below as it was the perfect excuse to crack open my Spirited Snowmen stamp set and use for the first time!


I've used the 3rd image on the stamp set, and instead of watercolour pencils have used Stampin Blends to colour with.



I added a little Champagne Shimmer paint to the edge of the card and the snowmen using an Aqua Painter - I can't get enough of this shimmery bling! It looks amazing in natural light, I shone a lamp on the card to try show the bling off a bit better (it's really hard to give justice to the shimmer in photographs)



I decided to use the sentiment from Winter Woods rather than Winter Cheer as it can be 40°C (over 100°F) at Christmas, I do think it pairs beautifully with this image. The snowflakes are 3rd & 4th generation stamping using Powder Pink, Pool Party and Highland Heather, and lastly a little bling with some Iridescent Sequins.

Take a load off, grab a cuppa and work your way through the entire list below, you are currently visiting Sue Vine - MissPinksCraftSpot, just click on the next name in the list to continue your journey:

Ink It! Stamp It! Signs of Santa Tunnel Card

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing 3D projects. The full line up below will guide through all the projects.

I love fund folds, so after viewing a Jennifer McGuire tutorial the other week, I decided to  give a tunnel card a go, this is a step up from a shadow box car, the last time I made one of these was in 2015The front of the card looks like a normal card.... 


The inside is where you get your pop of surprise!


I think I may become slightly addicted to the Signs of Santa bundle, it is so soooooo CUTE! I can't help but have more ideas of scenes with Santa and his helpers. The sentiment on the front of the card is from my other favourite Christmas bundle from the new catalogue, Merry Christmas to All.

Thank you so much for joining us today. We hope you'll join us again next month to see our projects. You are currently visiting Sue Vine at Miss Pinks Craft Spot, to keep hopping around see the list below to see who is up next.
