Easy Christmas Cards

Friday, November 29th, 2013

These are some of the quick and easy Christmas cards that we made at my last workshop.  Everyone had a blast thinking of new ways to use the Washi Tape.  It is a perfect companion for the Merry Minis punches.  Notice the poinsettia made out of the ornament punch.  The Christmas Messages stamp set is on sale until December 2.


Pennant Punch

Friday, December 14th, 2012


Here’s another pair of cards using the Pennant Punch and Festival of Prints designer paper.  The stamps are from Seasonal Sayings and can also be purchased as Single Stamps at   The ice cream scoops are using the mitten punch – another versatile purchase only available this month.  I have seen these mitten pieces also used as angel wings and flowers.

Snow Much Fun

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

Snow Much Fun is another stamp set that many of my customers were able to get at half price last month.  Here’s a cute card I came up with using Edgelits and white embossing.  The snowman is stamped twice – once on the Bashful Blue cardstock and once on a Whisper white scrap and cut out.  That way you don’t have to cut around the twig arms!  I added a bit of Dazzling Details to the snow for a sparkle.

Come To Bethlehem

Monday, December 10th, 2012

I chose this stamp set again this year for my Christmas card.  A lot of my customers picked it up at half price last month.  Here are 2 layouts using the Music wheel,  Framelits and Coordinations Cardstock.

Quilted Snowflakes

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

I pulled out the classic Lattice Square Embossing Folder to make the quilted snowflakes on this easy card.  The Snow Flurry die is not on the carry over list, so be sure to get it by the end of December.

For the Birds

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

These were some rejects for class projects, but still cute enough to show you.  The “For the Birds” stamp set is a fun new set in the main catalog.  I used vellum for the snow and also the Snowflake Soiree stamp set and the Illuminate ink pad.

I hope you are entering the daily contest to win MDS2 and a full year of downloads – $1600 value.  You can enter at the MDS facebook page.  I have the link in my own business facebook page (see sidebar).  I even got my husband to enter for me!

Stamp Class and Online Extravaganza

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

***More Merry Messages is on sale during the Online Extravaganza****

And here’s the last card for class on Tuesday.  Another quick and easy - again using Crumb Cake cardstock, More Merry Messages stamps and the Festival of Prints paper Pack.  I just added the Mitten Punch and a piece of linen thread to the supply list.  Don’t forget to RSVP!

And …stay tuned for more details about the Online Extravaganza Nov 19 through Nov 28.  There will be products 20-50% off, some only for one day.  It sounds like the Big Shot and the Clear Block set are among the doorbuster specials.  I’ll keep you posted!

Festival of Prints

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

***More Merry Messages is on sale during the Online Extravaganza***

I had some posts scheduled for you while I was away on vacation.  Now I’m back and getting ready for stamp class on Tuesday (Nov 20, sessions at 10am and 1pm) in Erie, PA.  Please RSVP!  This month I am featuring some quick and easy projects so you can get in and out fast.  The Festival of Prints Paper Stack ($6.95 – 48 sheets) is a great product for this end.  The 2 tree cards for this class are made from one sheet of Crumb Cake Cardstock plus 1 sheet of the print, cut into various sized strips.  I used my new Stampin’ Trimmer – it is amazing – we’ll use it at class as well.  I also used the Evergreen and More Merry Messages stamp sets.  And the Platinum Shimmer paint to add some sparkle. 

I will be using the new mitten punch for our 3rd card (will post soon).

Just for fun I made the ornament that was pictured on the cover of our bimonthly demonstrator magazine (free set of 10 ink pads this month for joining!!!)  I almost got the ornament from one sheet of the festival of prints stack - I just needed an additional strip for the center.

Tutorial for ornament:

1.  Cut 3/4″ strips – 2 each at 6″, 5 1/2″, and 5 inches.  You will need a middle strip at 4 1/2″.

2.  Stack strips together matching at one end.  With your paper piercing tool, poke a hole and add brad.

3.  Even up the other ends together and repeat.

4.  Add some Baker’s twine to one of the brads to hang your ornament.

5.  Play around with number of strips and sizes to create different variations.

Merry & Type

This set from the big catalog is very striking – especially embossed in Cherry Cobbler.  Still a few spots left at the birthday calendar class.

Cherry Cobbler Embossing

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

I finally pulled out my Cherry Cobbler Embosssing powder to play with.  WOW!  This stuff is beautiful.  Here it is used with the Elements of Style stamp set.  You need to see these in person and that EP will go straight onto your wish list.  The Cherry Cobbler Waffle Ribbon too.  There’s still room left in my calendar class for next weekend.
