Star of Light Christmas Cards


Do you have a favorite color combination? I have a few, one of them is Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. I love those two colors together! This was a great stamp-a-stack card, easy to prepare and just basic stamping - a great card to mass produce. It's hard to tell but the smaller stars were brushed with our clear Wink of Stella. I love adding shimmer with this pen!!

This card was created using the Star of Light stamp set, which I'm happy to say will be carrying over! It's such a pretty set for holiday cards.

Have a creative day!

Jolly Friends Christmas Card


Hope you had a great weekend! Ours was fabulous. We pulled out a few holiday decorations, had our team Christmas party and went to watch Jordyn play her last volleyball game. A nice full but not crazy weekend!

The card I'm sharing with you today was one from my recent stamp-a-stack. This Santa hat punch is the cutest punch (#141847 - on sale for just $12)! Combine it with the Jolly Friends stamp set (#142112 - on sale for just $16.80 right now!) and it's even cuter.

All posts this week will be short and sweet. Lots of deadlines coming up.

Have a creative day!

Letters for You Christmas Card


Earlier this week I held my annual Christmas stamp-a-stack and this was my favorite card that we made. I love snowflakes and shades of blue. I was also extremely happy to have another idea for the Letters for You stamp set. I love this alphabet set but it is on the pricier side so the more I use it, the better it makes me feel:)

Want to recreate this card? Here's what you need:
  • Card base is Dapper Denim cut to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4".
  • White layer is 4" x5-1/4" and is stamped in soft sky with the snowflake from the Stitched with Cheer stamp set (#142182), which I'm disappointed is not carrying over. Such a cute set!
  • The larger snowflake is from the Tin of Tags stamp set (#142180 - on sale for 20% off right now) and stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with silver embossing powder. Then punched out using the 2" circle punch.
  • Then you need a 2-1/8" circle in dapper denim and a scallop circle from silver foil. Both cut using the Layering Circles framelits (#141705 - on sale for 50% off right now!). I use these layering circles framelits more than any other framelits. They are so versatile!!
  • Use the scallop circle as a guide to stamp the J and the Y from the Letters for You stamp set (#141968) in dapper denim ink.
  • Add a strip of the narrow silver ribbon for your hanger. Layer the circles and use a dimensional to pop the snowflake in between the letters. 
  • Tie a bow using the silver ribbon and add it to the top of the circle using a mini glue dot.
  • Stamp a greeting using dapper denim onto a 4"x 5-1/4" piece of white cardstock and add it to the inside of the card.
Such a beautiful card and you could easily change out the colors to get a few different looks! What about elegant eggplant and gold?! Or real red and gold for a more traditional color scheme.

Thanks for stopping by, have a creative weekend!
