Handmade Christmas cards with Stampin’ Up!

Handmade Christmas cards with Stampin' Up!

A few weeks I received a lovely bundle of craft supplies from Stampin’ Up!. You may remember I was first introduced to them back in 2012 when I attended a lovely craft event to learn more about them and their products. Stampin’ Up! are leaders in decorative stamps, handmade greeting cards, and papercrafting. They make products which inspire people to discover and share their creativity.

I received Stampin’ Up’s! Christmas Card Kit which included the Making Christmas Bright Photopolymer Stamp Set, Clear Block D, All Is Bright A4 Cardstock Pack, Whisper White Thick A4 Cardstock, Call Me Clover Classic Stampin‘ Pad, Crushed Curry Classic Stampin‘ Pad, Real Red Classic Stampin‘ Pad and Stampin‘ Dimensionals. These products had been carefully put together in order to make your own Christmas cards.

This is a great starter set as I don’t have many card making supplies. Glue and a cutting board were also included which I found really helpful. If you enjoy making your own handmade cards then you would probably be happy to experiment but I admit to being a little cautious with all the new supplies.

Thankfully the product page had links to videos which I watched before I started making my cards. Once I had watched them I decided to make one of the Christmas cards so picked out the supplies I needed. I cut the card to the right size using the handy paper cutter, this also meant I could measure the exact size I needed.

Then I turned my attention to the stamp set, choosing what I needed and carefully placing them on the clear block.

The ink pads meant I was able to apply the ink evenly. I used a variety of the stamps and coloured card to make my card,

I loved the brightly coloured card and inks. I enjoyed following the instructions in the video to make my Christmas card so experimented with more of the stamps to make some gift tags.

I was really pleased with the results. The ink dried quickly which meant I was able to build up the layers and see my cards come together quickly.

You can purchase Stampin’ Up products via the website or a Stampin’ Up demonstration. You can also follow them on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube for inspiration and tutorials.

Disclosure – we were sent these craft supplies for the purpose of this review.

    We used to make handmade Christmas Cards all the time, but started to run out of time in December. This looks like a fab kit and if we are more organised next year we’d definitely use something like this!

    Those stamps are beautiful, I especially love hand made Christmas things, it means a little bit more thought has gone through the process. We recently when to my daughters Christmas fair and there were so many beautiful handmade things.
