ONE SEASONAL TREE

Hi and welcome!  Today’s card uses the Curvy Dies to create a lovely edge for this one seasonal tree!

A note about the Curvy Dies- they will be available to you in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue.  But as a Demonstrator, I was able to get them early.  They cut beautifully and are the perfect tool to fancy-up edges!

I found a card like this on Pinterest and just had to do one for myself!

I’m going to be sending this card to a Canadian Armed Forces member.  So many of them are overseas and not able to be with their families for Christmas.  So I hope that it brightens their Christmas just a little bit.

Happy Stamping!

A GENTLE PEACE

Hi, has it been snowing where you are?  I think that the snow delivers a gentle and peaceful view out my window.  I was thinking of peace when I created this card.

I found this technique that I used from the Stampin’ Up! Artisan showcase and wanted to give it a try.  Those partially coloured borders were done with stampin’ sponge.  Just cut a mat a bit smaller that the image piece and sponge on both colours until you have the intensity that you like.  Presto!

I added a few Metallic Pearls(146282) for a tiny bit of glam and this card is ready to send.

THE SPIRIT OF PEACE

OK, back to Christmas cards – this one uses the beautiful greeting from Peaceful Boughs stamp set(150541) and a touch of snow from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set(153444).

I think that lovely sentiment deserves to be front and centre, don’t you?  Then all it needed was a few snowflakes for framing.

The layout for this card comes from the new Freshly Made Sketches challenge which is perfect for adding those pieces from the Feels Like Frost designer paper pack!

FOR A PEACEFUL BIRTHDAY

Hello and welcome!  Today’s card is a step away from Christmas to celebrate a birthday.  We have a lot of birthday’s to celebrate in December and I’m building up my stash!

I haven’t used the Forever Fern Bundle(154094) for quite a while and it helped to make this card come together just the way I liked!

There are a couple of other pieces of the Forever Fern Suite on this card too, check out the Gold Hoop Embellishment(152474) and the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo(152475).

The background to this lovely card plays along with The Paper Players latest sketch challenge too!

I was also really happy to see that my card from last week was chosen as one of the “Cut Above” submissions.  Thank you to the crew at The Paper Players!

A SIMPLE HOLIDAY GREETING

Hi, I hope you’re doing well and thanks so much for stopping by!  Today’s card features poinsettias from A Flower for Every Season designer paper pack(152486)!  It sends a simple holiday greeting with those traditional and beautiful flowers!

I combined Just Jade a Poppy Parade for this one to give a softer Christmas greeting!  All it takes is a little Versamark, White Emboss powder and the Heat Tool to brighten up that greeting!

I followed along with the new CAS(E) this sketch layout which is the perfect sketch to show off those lovely poinsettias!

HAPPY GIFT MICE

The Warm & Toasty stamp set(152615) just makes me smile, especially these two cute little mice!

They are fun to colour too!  I used a selection of our Stampin’ Blends to give them life:)

I am giving Gift Cards this year so needed a new idea for gift card holders and found this one on Patty Bennett’s blog.  It easy and can be adapted for any occasion!

This is what the card looks like when open!

I have a few more to do so here is the product list for you.

A LITTLE DIE-CUTTING GOES A LONG WAY

Hello to you!  I chose to do some die-cutting on today’s card that features the Snow Globe Scenes dies(150655) and a couple others!

Those die-cut animals keep with the theme in the Toile Christmas designer paper for sure!  I cut out the squares in Just Jade and then tucked them into the Greenery Embossing Folder(152716) to add some texture.  Then decided that I needed some Shaded Spruce pine boughs so brought out the Beautiful Boughs dies for that job!

The greeting was “masked” to fit on that one smaller square and relays the sentiment of the season perfectly!

This whole layout was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for this week.

Here’s the product list for you.

SAFE AT HOME

Hi and welcome!  Staying home is the theme for these times so why not show off the beauty of a home surrounded by winter by using the Still Scenes stamp set(150503)!

I used an assortment of Stampin’ Blends to colour that lovely scene and added a touch of Shimmery Crystal Effects(150892) to add the sparkle to the snow!

Clean and simple holidays is The Paper Players theme this week and I think this card will cover it with that beautiful sentiment!

Happy Day and happy stamping to you!

AND A MERRY MOOSE WALKED BY

I thought it was time to use the returning Merry Moose Bundle for today!  This was a favourite from last year and he needed to make an appearance this year too!

And, there he is, just casually walking through the forest of pine trees!  Take a look at that tiny, tiny ornament – yup, I cut that little thing out by hand!  The greeting just needed a little something, so there it is!

I followed along with the sketch posted by TGIF Challenge

So used a piece from the “Tis the Season designer paper pack(153489).  That red plaid just seemed fitting, don’t you agree?

BIRTHDAY FLOWERS

Hi and welcome!  It has occurred to me that my collection of birthday cards is getting low – so – I’m stepping away from Christmas to show you this latest birthday card!

I love the Ornate Layers dies that go along with the Ornate Style stamp set that come in a Bundle(154119).

This card combines Purple Posy with Highland Heather and I added a touch of Garden Green for the leaves on that pretty little flower.

To play along with the CAS(E) this sketch layout I used the Well Written dies(151816) for the birthday greeting!

Here’s the list of products used.
