Last week I had a Cookie Cutter Card Class at my house and these are the cards that we made. The first one was cased from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue with the help of Monica Gale.
The leaves are stamped and punched with the Holly Berry Happiness Bundle.
The second card was inspired by one which I saw on Pinterest. The door of the igloo was made by die cutting one of the doors for the house in the Home Sweet Home Bundle. The Eskimo was coloured in with Blender Pens.
Here is the bear from the Cookie Cutter Stamp Set with some added Christmas Embellishments.
He could also be used for Baby Congratulation Cards.
The last card was cased from Monica Gale's Blog HERE. Her card was more embellished than mine!

I have really enjoyed playing with the Pretty Pines Dies from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.
I have made a Box and 3 cards as you will see. I plan on running a class in October or November to make these cards so let me know if you are interested in attending it.
I love a white background for a card like this. I decided to add a bit more interest and texture by running the card base through the Big Shot with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder.
The sentiment comes from the Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set in the Annual Catalogue.
For the next card I used the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and the sentiment was die cut using the Christmas Greetings Stamp Set.
Above is the top of the box. I was inspired by a Blog Post HERE. I have used Gold Card under the pine cones to give a bit of extra bling.
The sentiment in the last card is from the Holly Berry Happiness Stamp Set. The border on the left hand side was stamped using a stamp from the Stitched with Cheer Set. I stamped and embossed in gold embossing powder with the Touches of Texture Stamp Set for some extra bling and then finished the card off with 3 pearls.

I got the Basket of Wishes Stamp Set in my last order from Stampin up and I have to say that I love it and it was only £15. I really enjoyed making these Thank you cards for some of my customers.
I coloured in the stamped images while watching Bleak House.
There are three basket images one of which is like a pick your own basket so I had to put strawberries in that one.
One of the Stamps has a yummy selection of Autumn Vegetables.
These were quick and simple cards to put together and I really enjoyed making them.

This is a fantastic Kit which makes 18 cards, 6 each of 3 designs. The first photo shows most of what you get in the Kit. It comes with a detailed set of instructions, 2 needles and a needle threader.
The holes for stitching have already been punched for you and you get lots of gold thread to stitch with.
I love the matching envelope liners which make the cards look more classy!
Notice the little holly embellishment which is included in the Kit.
The matching Stitched with Cheer Stamp Set has 27 photopolymer stamps for £19 which is a bargain.
I used these stamps with the Tin of Tags Kit on page 33 of the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.
Notice the lovely gold dot embellishments on the card which finish it off nicely.
Tiny Pearls add the extra detail on the third card in the Kit. The Trees are dimensional as you sew two on together so there are 6 in all for each card.
This is a great Bundle as it has 5 different characters included which you punch with the matching Punch and 6 sentiments.
Above is the cheeky looking Reindeer with a Holly Embellishment.
The Ribbon is from the Annual Catalogue as is the small strip of DSP.
The Santa Claus card is a quick and easy one which you could do in multiples to get through your Christmas card list quickly. The sentiment in Real Red is from Holly Berry Happiness and the one at the base is retired. Two strips of Gold Glimmer Paper finish it off with a bit of bling.
The DSP in most of these cards is the Candy Cane Lane DSP from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.
Here is the cute Teddy Bear which could also be used for baby or children's cards.
The Gingerbread Man card was designed by Moica Gale. The Candy Cane is from the Home Sweet Home Stamp Set. We curved it round at one end when applying it to the Acrylic Block.
This Eskimo Card was also designed by Monica. The Igloo was embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.I love the way that she added some of the White Pom Pom Trim from the Annual Catalogue for the snow balls. The Jingle Bells and the Linen Thread finish it off nicely.

My pre-order from the new Stampin Up Autumn/Winter Catalogue included the Cable Knit Textured Embossing Folder. In the first card I have used some of the Warmth and Cheer Washi Tape on the Base Card. I used a sentiment stamp from the Stitched With Cheer Stamp Set and cut it out with a Die from the Baker's Box Thinlets. The Holly Embellishments are from the Holly Berry Happiness Set.
I have used Washi Tape again on this card with a Doily which I inked up with Cherry Cobbler. I again used some holly stamped and punched using the Holly Berry Builder Punch.
I cased this Cable Knit card from Sue Parker of Sparkled Stamps. Tami White has also done a video on You Tube. Their Cables are horizontal so I decided to do mine vertical!
I have some ladies coming to my Catalogue Launch evening tomorrow night and they will be making these Baker's Die Boxes using the Cable Knit folder to emboss them.
The colours used are Garden Green and Real Red.
Have you noticed the yummy Real Red Christmas Ribbon?
I made the Holly Embellishment using the Holly Berry Happiness Stamp Set and matching Punch.
