Rainbow Christmas Card

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with a colorful Christmas card… I started by stamping three ornaments using THIS stamp set. One on the left, one in the middle, and one on the right hand side. Then I stamped the same image multiple images on THIS masking paper. I cut them out and covered two of the ornaments to stamp an ornament in the center. I used the solid image from the stamp set...

Stitching on Cards

Hi, crafty friends. I love the look of stitching on cards. It gives such a handmade feel to any project but I’m not that great at it. That’s why I’m happy to see products like THIS. It makes the process so much easier. I used it to create this Christmas card… I started by stamping THIS background on kraft card stock. I die-cut it using THIS die to create a stitched border frame. I...

Hi there, crafty friends. I’m sharing three mini size cards today featuring products from the new Picket Fence release. You can see the entire release HERE. We recently moved and the only thing I can’t seem to find in the new house is my creative mojo! I decided to shrink down the canvas size on these cards and that really seemed to help. All the cards have a window on them to highlight the...

Photo Christmas Card

Hello. I thought I’d share our family Christmas card for this year… I love creating interactive cards and adding photos to Christmas cards, so THIS die was perfect. I cut it from black cardstock and added a photo of my two sons on the inside… I created a snow bank using THIS die and added a sentiment from THIS stamp set. I stamped THIS background to create shingles for the house and added snow...
