Creation Station Blog Hop 'Christmas'

Hello and welcome to the December Creation Station Blog Hop. Thankyou for joining me, and don't forget to visit everyone on the hop. Prepare yourself to see some amazing creations by talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world! 
'Embellished Ornaments' is my stamp set of choice for this months 'Christmas' themed Blog Hop. I especially love the intricate dies that coordinate with this stunning set. And there is a whole lot of coordinating accents to make your projects so pretty.

I love the combination of Very Vanilla & Gold, and an LED tealight, inside the easel, beautifies this Gold Foil ornament on top of a vellum window. I have used Washi Tape from the 'Winter Wonderland Suite' around the edge of the cardstock which frames the ornament.

I finished the ornament with Gold Cording Trim, and fussy cut holly & leaves. I found the cutest tutorial for this luminaire card. Please click here for the tutorial by Sabine.

These Christmas cards are simple and sweet using the beautiful 'Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack' and accents.


How gorgeous are the Wooden Snowflake Elements and the bling of the Winter Wonderland Embellishments? And with a hint of Gold Metallic Thread behind makes for a lovely finish.

I have been wanting to make a Tealight Holder card, and I found a tutorial so you can make one too. Click here for the link to Gio's tutorial.
I wrapped the 'Winter Wonderland Washi Tape' around the tealights. And I altered the middle of the card with my own pocket to add the Christmas cards and envelopes.

And now for something a little bit different:
I had an idea to make a 'Stained Glass' ornament Christmas card. I have seen a few 'Stained Glass' type projects on Pinterest using different coloured cardstock to fill in the intricate die cut; that is a lot of work - and knowing me I would have endured such a project, however I had other plans...

I am loving the bold stripes on the Vellum overlay. The Bright colours of the ornament, and a little bit of gold, lift the black & white of this card.

The Basic Black ornament die adhered to vellum was perfect to colour in, and I used all 10 of the 'Brights Stampin' Write Markers' to create the 'Stained Glass' ornament. 

And wait, there is another one... with an LED tealight for the glow behind the 'Stained Glass' panel. (I think this one is my favourite!)

Thankyou so much for hopping by and seeing my projects. I hope to have inspired you? Don't forget to click on the NEXT button to see what Holly has in store for you.

  3. Hi Denita. Your name is beautiful as well as your cards. Might your gold "button" be the cut out from the ornament top? As crafters, we never waste anything, right? Lol!

  7. ooh now they look a bit lovely! I had tried the coloured vellum with the butterflies but the colours came out rather blah with the yellow of the "candle", maybe I need to find different candles!
