What Will You Stamp? - #146 - Christmas Quilt

Welcome to this week's challenge at What Will You Stamp? Each week we feature a different stamp set and start off the challenge by sharing our ideas for using it and then it is over to you. So check out all of the Design Team projects and if you are up for the challenge you can add your projects too. You might even be chosen as our next Guest Designer!

This week we are showcasing Christmas Quilt.

This is one of my favourite sets and I love the coordinating Quilt Builder Framelits too. You can see other projects I have made with this bundle here. This set can be used for so much more than Christmas. In fact I recently helped a friend make invitations for her Mum's 70th birthday party with this set. For some reason we forgot to take photos.

Today I have decorated a cute Mini Pizza Box and made some quick Christmas note cards.

The Mini Pizza boxes look great embossed. Here I have used the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I just love the texture it adds.

I kept the box front pretty simple. I love the Christmas Tree image. It is a 2 step process and I have added some quilting thanks to the Quilt Builder Framelits. All I needed to do then was add in some ribbon and a Year of Cheer embellishment and I was done. Don't you love quick and easy, yet gorgeous, projects at this time of year?

The note cards are pretty simple too. You need to keep the layers to a minimum so they can fit into the 3" envelopes. I decorated the envelopes as well but had already given them with the cards in them to the girls in my class before I realised I didn't have a pic! They were great!

A Glitter Enamel Dot in the centre of each flower finishes off the design. I love this die cut flower with the stitching. Makes it really quick to make up your designs. 

Make sure you check out all of the other projects from the other Design Team members and enter your project. We'd love to see what you create.

Stamp Review Crew - Wood Words

Welcome back to another Stamp Review Crew blog hop. The Stamp Review Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world that get together on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month for a blog hop. Each hop we will showcase one stamp set and show you just how much you can do with it.

For this hop we are featuring Wood Words.

It is a versatile set that coordinates with the Wood Crate Framelits. Today I am multitasking! I am getting some Christmas cards done and saving time by sticking with the same layout and just changing colours and die cuts.

This is such a quick way to whip up great cards in a hurry. I call it the 'same but different' technique! For each card I started with a card base of Crumb Cake and a piece of Wood Textures DSP - that I had been squirrelling away. I cut each piece of DSP in half to make the most of the gorgeousness. Then I simple added a die cut large shape, a piece of cardstock as a border and some bits and pieces!

Each large shape is cut from Glossy Cardstock, stamped the flower pattern in Versamark, embossed with white and then used a sponge brayer and ink to add the colour. I have also embossed in white a coordinating shape on coloured cardstock.

Add in 'celebrate' from Colour Me Happy, some jute and some wooden Hearts and Stars embellishments and you have some quick, easy yet effective cards.

Wood Words has some great phrases that you can use however for these cards I thought celebrate was perfect. This heart card could be used for Christmas, engagement, anniversary, wedding, pretty much anything really. Multipurpose cards like this are great to have in your stash.

This Rich Razzleberry version might just be my favourite. I would love to hear which is yours!

Make sure you make your way around to see what the other crew members did with this set. Next up is the super talented Heidi Baks. Can't wait to see what she has created!
