To make the card, you’ll need: Misty Moonlight cardbase: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at at 4 1/4″ alongContinue reading “Words of Cheer Birthday Card”

Merriest Moments (Monochromatic)

I’ve used the Merriest Moments bundle with traditional and non-traditional holiday colors. So why not with no color? A monochromatic take on a holiday card. To make this card you’ll need: Basic White Thick cardbase: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side Beautifully Penned DSP: 4 1/8″ xContinue reading “Merriest Moments (Monochromatic)”

Merriest Moments (Non-Traditional Colors)

I gave you a Merriest Moments card in traditional colors – so I have to give you one in non-traditional colors, right? A Fresh Freesia and Balmy Blue wreath surround the sentiment over a Misty Moonlight background. A few shimmery additions complete the card. To make this card, you’ll need: Basic White Thick cardbase: 4Continue reading “Merriest Moments (Non-Traditional Colors)”

Merriest Moments (Traditional Colors)

A red plaid background, green leaves, and a red poinsettia – pretty traditional, huh? The colors on this card really pop – and I absolutely love those decorative matte dots (I’m fond of the black dots too -they’re available in the annual catalog). To make this card you’ll need: Sahara Sand cardbase: 4 1/4″ xContinue reading “Merriest Moments (Traditional Colors)”

Merry Snowflakes Card

The Merry Snowflakes bundle caused a ‘flurry’ of excitement for me when I first saw – was that too bad of a pun? This card has a lot of parts but comes together pretty easily. You’ll need the following: Shaded Spruce card base (4 1/4″ x 11, scored at 5 1/2″ on the long sideContinue reading “Merry Snowflakes Card”

Polished Pink Poinsettia

It’s no secret that the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and matching dies from last year are my favorite – I use them both a lot (see this example and this one). The sentiments are wonderful and the dies makes such impressive poinsettias! I like dabbling in non-traditional holiday colors so I thought I’d give itContinue reading “Polished Pink Poinsettia”

Delicate Dahlias Thank You

The Delicate Dahlias photopolymer stamp set is one of the free items you can earn during Sale-a-Bration. It has both outline stamps and realistic style stamps. You can use them together to make a layered look – I chose to use them separately. To make the above card, you’ll need A 5 1/2″ x 8Continue reading “Delicate Dahlias Thank You”

Peaceful Cabin Card

Maybe this scene takes place just after a snowstorm – I went with black, grays, and other neutrals to make a calm winter scene. The Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper brings a nice shimmer to the background – I used a few of the Subtle Shimmer Sequins for a few more areas of sparkle.Continue reading “Peaceful Cabin Card”

Festively Frightful

I really think the Festive & Bright Bundle is a great addition to anyone’s craft supply stash – I have used it to make bottle tags (see my post here) and the card above. You can cover the fall and winter holidays with it. I went with Halloween this time and decided to transform twoContinue reading “Festively Frightful”

Candy Cane Christmas Card

What’s black and white and red all over? No….not that silly joke from elementary school – the answer is this Christmas card. The simple black, white, and red color scheme of this card makes it a fun way to spread some cheer. Here’s how I made the card: Score a 4 1/4″ x 11″ pieceContinue reading “Candy Cane Christmas Card”
