UK Scrappers Christmas Blog Hop 2013

Hello one and all. Today I’m posting a project as part of the UKS Christmas Blog Hop.  This post is part of a blog hop over at UK Scrappers, where from 1st December until Christmas there is a project every day. 

The rules of the hop are:
  1. Visit the UKS Home Page every morning where you'll find a new project - from there, click the link to get the tutorial for that day.
  2. Comment on each of the blog threads uploaded each morning (and BE SURE TO MENTION YOUR UKS USER NAME in your comment). If the project is not on a blog, you get a PASS.
  3. And then comment on the UKS thread, but you only need to comment in the UKS thread after the 23rd of December, and if you have commented on all the blogs. We will compare the commenters in the UKS thread to the blog comments after the 25th and announce the winner on New Year's Eve.
How exciting!

So, welcome to Day 10 of the UKS Christmas Blog Hop! 

We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s post, the lovely hanging star decoration by Niki at Being Scrappy.

Sir Stampalot’s project today is using one of the amazing Sizzix ‘flip-it’ themed framelit sets.  I taught it at an instore class recently and it went down very well. So hope you like it too.

Firstly, die cut all your pieces so you are ready for the off :)

Now let’s do some stamping.
Stamp in black and clear emboss 3 Christmas motifs in the centre of each of the white squares.  I’ve then coloured my images in with copic pens.  I’ve also used glossy accents on the bauble (ensure you leave to dry) and also used white liquid applique on the stocking top, heal and toe. 



Also stamp in black and clear emboss the Happy Christmas sentiment on the bottom right of the big rectangular patterned cardstock.
Also stamp in black and clear emboss a stitching stamp down the left hand side of the other piece of patterned cardstock that will be used on the front of the card.
Then finally, I’ve stamped the For: and From: onto 2 of the 3 die cut squares to be used on the “inside” flip of the card.

Now to put it all together :)
Adhere with double sided tape or cosmic shimmer dries clear glue, all the die cut pieces of patterned paper as pictured here:


And there you have it! How quick and easy was that!

If you like the look of the flip-it framelits, you can check them all out here: Flip-It Framelits

if you wish to make some cards without purchasing the framelits set, or because you don’t yet have a die-cutting machine, you can purchase the kit here (makes 3 cards and you get 2 stamps included too) :  UKS Card Kit.

And if you don’t already have small any Christmas motifs toppers or stamps in your own stash, to fit the squares, I’ve used the Stampendous Tag Art “set Holiday” which we currently have in our sale section and fit perfectly.

Well, that’s all for today folks.  Hope you enjoyed it and thanks for looking.

Be sure to visit Suzy’s blog tomorrow where she’ll be making a Christmas card too.

Happy Crafting, and Merry Christmas to you all!
Janice and all at Sir Stampalot
