School Holiday Fun / Stocking Stuffers

Hi Crafty Friends

If your kids are on holidays and you are looking for something for them to do, how about picking up some card kits from our website. 

We have lots of kid-themed kits including Fairy Tales, Dragon Tails and Summer Fun, just to name a few.

Each kit is $15 and includes 5 cards, matching envelopes and embellishments.  

The materials needed to make these cards are minimal and are listed with each kit on our website - https://michellescardsandstamps.com.au/products-page/card-kits/

Here's a couple of kits to give you an idea of the designs.

To Be Jolly Gift Cards

Hi Crafty Friends

Looking to make your Christmas Gift Cards this year?  Check out these tags made using Darkroom Door's - To Be Jolly and My Favorite Things - Gift Tag Dienamics die.

We always like to make tags as mini cards, so we die cut two tags and adhere them at the top.


The top tag is cut from Bazzill Guacamole and topped with Simple Stories - Winter Wonderland paper.  Across the bottom is either a Scallop or Zig-Zag border cut from Creampuff.

We then added a layer of Dark Red card and the top layer is Lily White.

We took the 'To Be Jolly' stamp and cut the Christmas Tree off it (sorry Rachel).


We stamped 'To Be Jolly' using an Archival - Red Geranium ink pad and then stamped the Tree with and Archival Distress Ink Pad - Peeled Paint.  

We blended around the edges with Wild Honey and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink Pads and then adhered this to the front of the card.

The inside of the card has been cut from Premium Kraft card and has 3 stamps on it from Darkroom Door's stamp sets - Noel (DDRS060), Christmas Reindeer (DDRS020) and Yuletide Greetings (DDRS195).

We scored across the top of this tag and adhered the top to the front tag and secured with some May Arts Olive ribbon.  On the top of the Christmas Tree, I added some Gold Stickles.

You can find these stamp sets on our website https://michellescardsandstamps.com.au/products-page/darkroom-door-stamps-by-designer/

Hope you have a great day.
Happy Stamping

Gnome Christmas

Hi Crafty Friends

The latest shipment of Stamping Bella's new Christmas stamps have arrived and are on our website and instore.

These Gnomes are really cut and couldn't wait to grab my Copics and play.

This stamp is called 'Gnome with Presents' and I paired it with 'Holiday Fun Sentiments' stamp set.

The bast card is Bazzill Pomegranate followed by Honey Dotted Swiss and Patch card.  On Colour Copy 200gsm Laser Paper, I stamped the Gnomes with Presents using a Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.

To prevent the image from 'floating in mid-air', I added two little lines to the left and right of the image to create a back wall and floor.  I coloured around the image with Copic Markers B000, B00, E41 and E43.

I coloured the main image with Copic Markers - E00, E11, E04, E40, E41, Y11, Y15, Y17, YR23, YG11, G14, G07, C1, C3, R17, R27, R46, R39.  

After colouring, I accented the image with a White Gelly Roll pen 0.8, adding highlights or patterns.

I also stamped a second image and the Gnome and Green present in the front is adhered to the card with mounting tape.

I added the words 'Get you JINGLE on!' using a Black Soot Archival Ink Pad.  Lastly I blended a little Mowed Lawn Distress Ink Pad around the edges.

If you like this card and would like to see more of the images, check out our website - https://michellescardsandstamps.com.au/products-page/stamping-bella/
