Brand ambassador inspiration : Christmas in July

 Hi there!

Hannelie here today ... popping in with a couple of ideas to inspire you to start making your Christmas cards early this year!

The first three cards are all in traditional green and red :

For the first card I used :

I started off by stenciling a light shade of green with the Christmas trio stencil. I kept the stencil in place and placed the Winter Foliage stencil over it and added the darker shade of green. I finished the card off with the sentiment, tiny gold rhinestones and stars.

For the second card I used :

After stamping a couple of panels using the above mentioned background stamps, I used a die (Pinpoint rectangle die from Memory box) to cut out the rectangles for the background. I finished the card off with the sentiment and a bit of bling.

For the third card I used :

After stamping a couple of panels with the above mentioned background stamps, I used a punch to cut out the tags. I then stamped the MERRY on the tags and strung them through some gold string.
The card was finished off with the Christmas sentiment and small gold rhinestones.

And the last one in black white and a pop of turquoise :

For the last card I used :

The image was stamped on a piece of water colored paper I found in my "scraps" box ... YAY for that one! I used my craft knife to cut out the curve on the bottom, and used my Misti to stamp the sentiment following the curve of the image.

I used Altenew inks and Versafine black ink on all the cards.

I hope one or all of the cards inspire you today!

Thanks for looking :)



  1. Fabulous cards Hannelie!

  2. Fabulous, festive cards Hannelie!

  3. What fantastic inspiration! They all look great and so cleverly created by combining products. I’m keen to try the second card patchwork method. X

  4. So inspiring as always, Hannelie. Love the rectangles pieced together and the bunting is so festive. Great work x
