25 Days of Christmas Tags

Image
Hi everyone! Today I am participating in the 25 Days of Christmas tags and featuring some great dies from STAMPlorations. You can find all the details over on Tracey's Blog


The two sets that I am using form my tag are Two Reindeer and Luggage tags. These are nesting dies which means that there are several sized that can be layered one on top of the other. This made it very easy for me to cut through one of the smaller tags so that my darker brown card stock would show through. I then used the cut out deer for my second tag. 



Here is a closer look at the tags. 



It was a quick and easy way to get to fun holiday tags. Be sure to check out all the tags through the 25th. I am sure you will get some great inspiration.

Hi everyone and welcome to our 4th annual Giving Thanks blog Hop.  We are celebrating today by sharing some of our creations using stamps and dies from STAMPlorations.  You can find all the links and info over on the STAMPlorations blog.


For my card today I am using the Doodle Autumn Pumpkindie along with the Thankful every day phrase  This doodle die is so delicate and intricate, but cuts so nicely. I was able to get a nice clean cut on the first try and didn't tear any part of the die. That is rare for me on these detailed dies, but I was so happy with the results!

Now as I said, this is a hop and there are over $200 in prizes to be giving out. You can also win prizes by visiting our FB and Instagram pages and tagging your friends. Don't forget to link up to the linky party as well which closes on November 30th. 

Winners will be announced on December 10th over on the STAMPlorations blog.  

Also don't forget from November 12 to 30th, stamps, stencils, and dies are 40% off,…

Masculine Christmas Cards

Image
Hi everyone and happy Saturday. I am sharing a card with you today which is perfect for the men in your life. Many of us struggle with masculine cards, but I am here to show you how to make a fun card that is sure to be a hit. 

This card was creating using one of the thinlet dies sets from the Tim Holtz collection.  I created a process video that you can check out below. 



This set comes with four characters, so there are lots of options for your Christmas cards.There are several small pieces in these sets, so some patience is required.  I offered a few tips in my video to help you through the process.
But don't get too stressed out, remember, this is suppose to be fun! LOL! 
Thanks for stopping by.

Layered Cards using Ephemera

Image
Hello everyone! Today i am sharing with you my most recent Christmas Cards and Video on You Tube. I love to create layered cards using ephemera. They are probably one of the more easier designs as there is no wrong way to layer!

To watch my process video, click below. 


I find when I am layering cards, the thinner the paper the better.  I have some old printer paper (the ones that had the holes on the sided to feed through your printer), but you could use any printer paper you have on hand.


Once you have your ephemera printed, you can cut it out or tear the edges.  I like to add washi tape to the edges so that it gives it a nice finished look. 



I have a some ephemera sets in my shop that would work great for this technique. Be sure to check them out in my digital section



This retro Santa set has some great Santa images that would be great focal points on your cards this year. I also have some ephemera sets for your backgrounds.

Thanks for stopping by!
