World Card Making Blog Hop


Hey Everyone. Happy World Card Making day. What better way to celebrate than taking a trip
around our World Card Making Day Blog Hop featuring current Stampin' Up!® Products. We have lots of amazing inspiration for you. You are currently visiting Lou Kitzelman in Australia and you will be visiting lots of different places in our hop today. There is a list at the end of the page which will help you to move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing projects. We'd love to hear what you think of our creations - so leave us some comments if you get a chance.

Today I have 2 cards for you using the Greetings for Santa stamp set and the coordinating Detailed Santa Thinlits dies. I have CASEd this idea from the quarterly magazine that Stampin' Up! demonstrators receive which is full of ideas. It is a bit hard to tell but I have used copper foil sheets for the detailed Santa. Backing it in Whisper White and then matting with Basic Black really makes it stand out. Stamping the sentiment in Basic Black archival ink and scattering some copper stars around (from the Detailed Santa Thinlits dies) make a simple but elegant design.


For a more colourful card I have cut different sections from Pool Party, Real Red and Blushing Bride and inset them into the relevant sections. Because I haven't placed pieces back into the beard section the detail really stands out.


I tried to use the sun to help capture the sparkle I've added. The Gold Wink of Stella pen helped add detail to Santa's glasses and some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper adds some fun to the pom pom on his hat. There are 2 great border dies in this set too. By using them you can show the cardstock behind for a bit of extra detail as I have done here above and below the sentiment.

This stamp set has lots of great images and sentiments that lend themselves for layering as I have done of the inside of my card. It is very plain - more room for writing your message!


Thanks for visiting me (Lou Kitzelman) today on World Card Making Day. I hope you get to celebrate by creating something wonderful. There are so many amazing ideas and inspiration so make sure you check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list and make your way to each of the stops in this blog hop.

  1. The gold one is so striking and slighlty serious, yet using the same die it makes a more lighter and fun Christmas card with the coloured Santa. Thank you for showing this dies versatility
