Suite Showcase no. 21 - Joy of Christmas

Hello and welcome back.

Can you believe it's November already?! That means that this Suite Showcase is focusing on Christmas using the Joy of Christmas Suite.
For my first card, using traditional Christmas colours, I pulled out the foiled specialty designer series paper and added it to a matting layer of Basic White but only so it covered 3/4 of the page. To cover the join, I die cut the frame from the Christmas Classics dies in Shaded Spruce and die cut the inner label for the sentiment. To fill out the foliage, I added some of the individual dies cut from the gold more dazzle paper and Cherry Cobbler. The sentiment was also stamped in Cherry Cobbler. 

This was all then added to Cherry Cobbler matting layer on to a Shaded Spruce card base. To complete the card I added some embellishments from the Iridescent Adhesive-Backed discs.

For my second card, I stuck to the traditional colours and a similar layout. I picked from the DSP in the Suite. I used the Shaded Spruce check as a matting layer and selected one of the foliage printed sheets to cut a 1 1/4" strip that is the same width as the card base. I layered this on some gold Fine Shimmer paper, that can be found in the clearance rack. The sentiment was stamped on the die cut label from the die set in Real Red. The 'merry' was stamped in Shaded Spruce on the shimmer paper and trimmed this to size with my snips.

I cut the same foliage frame as the previous card but this time, I cut it from Real Red cardstock. I then die cut some of the leaves from the Fine Shimmer paper and attached to the back of the sentiment panel. I laid some Gold and Vanilla ribbon looped on the card base and added the sentiment panel over the top on dimensionals. And completed with adding some gold Metallic Enamel Effects randomly.

For my third card, I changed everything and pulled in Highland Heather and Pool Party. I masked off a strip on some Basic White and stamped the foliage in Pool Party, Highland Heather and Smoky Slate. I stamped the sentiment and then using the Basic Black Stampin Write Marker, I drew lines to the highlight it.

Before adding this panel to the Highland Heather card base, I ink blended the edges with Highland Heather. This was adhered using our multi-purpose liquid glue.

I cut a matting layer of Pool Party and ran this through my Cut 'n' Emboss machine in the new Snowflake Sky 3d embossing folder. This is one of my absolute favourite embossing folders! The stamped panel was then added to the Pool Party layer using dimensionals. The card was then finished by adding a bow in the Silver & White ribbon and more of the Iridescent Adhesive-Backed Discs.

I hope you like the cards, I'm going to have more of a play with this suite. Why don't you head over to The Inkspirational Crafter, to see what Alison has been making with it. See you next time!
