Christmas Jump Start - Stamp 'N Hop

Welcome to another Stamp 'n Hop blog hop. About twenty talented crafters from all around the globe are bringing you some Christmas cheer. You may have seen some projects already and landed on my page from gifted Laura Mackie but in any case, make sure you follow the arrow at the bottom of each post to see them all.

Do you ever feel you have all the time in the world to do something and all of a sudden, you are late? I do. Every year, in summer, I have big plans for Xmas cards and gift tags and other projects and a few months later I am in total christmasy chaos. Well, not this time, I'm not (I think).

I am nearly ready. It's not that difficult not to be with all the amazing Holiday sets Stampin' Up!® is throwing at us. Today, I am showing you a set called Beautiful Blizzard and the corresponding dies. You can get them separately or as a bundle too with a little discount. 

The set has 11 stamps including 5 lovely sentiments. The corresponding die can cut out as many as 17 beautiful snowflakes of several sizes and shapes at the same time! How great is that?

There are no special measurements. The coloured card base is a half of A4 (portrait orientation), scored at 10.5cm on the longer side. The insert (I used very vanilla for the red card and shimmery white for the others) 
is 10.1 x 14.4cm. The stamped cardstock is cut to create a 1cm border and measures 8.5 x 12.8cm. And finally, the banner is about 1.5cm tall and 10cm wide. The foil sheet underneath has 1mm border on both long sides. But as long as it fits on the card and you like it, the size could be something completely different to mine. 

Enjoy my little video showing how to create these blizzardy cards:

I used the supplies to make these projects: (click on any of the products to shop online).
I hope you found an inspiration in my Beautiful Blizzard cards and maybe it even sparkled a burst of creativity. If you like my cards and would like to try to make some yourself, join our little crafty club next month. Or maybe you don't have time to craft but would like to give handmade cards. If that's the case, give me a shout; I'd be happy to help!
