Some Things Old, Some Things New


Christmas has gone by, and I only got half the cards out that I’d hoped.  In this New Year, one nice thing is that we are just seeing our first snow here. I think snowflakes work out great for thank you cards for those holiday gifts!  This is one I’ll be sending out soon.

For this card, I dug out my vellum and embossed my new Crystal Flurries stamps by The Ton stamps on it with some glittery blue embossing powder I have had in my stash a long while.  I adhered the vellum down just under the snowflakes, so it looks like a loose overlay around the edges.  I just love the new DCWV Glitzy cardstock I received as one of my gifts!  The glitter doesn’t come off at all and the sparkle is awesome!   I used a cute die cut from Simon Says Stamp.



Products used:

  • Stamps:  The Ton – Crystal Flurries
  • Cardstock – Neenah Solar White
  • Metallic Cardstock  – DCWV Glitsy
  • Embossing Powder – Stamp-n Stuff Blue Tinsel Translucent by Stampendous
  • Die:  Simon Says Stamp Small Hello Craft Die



Red, White and Snow

Just to show you how versitile the Simon Says Stamps snowflake dies can be, here’s a completely different look than my recent watercolor version.  This time, I added a little clear glue to the die cuts and dipped them into some clear microfine glitter before mounting them onto beautiful DCWV red foiled cardstock. The foil is so reflective that getting a good photo angle sure was tricky!


Products used:

  • Dies – Simon Says Stamp Dies Set:  More Fun Flakes
  • Foil Cardstock:  DCWV
  • White Cardstock:  Neenah Solar White
  • Glitter & Glue – unknown



Cookies n’ Milk

Yesterday was my foray into another Lawn Fawn set – this time: my new Cookies and Milk set!  YUM!  I made 7 cards, here are a few of the variations.  I have to admit, the last one is my favorite, but I just didn’t have much of that paper!  My striped paper was some older stock I had on hand from a summer DCWV stack.   I took the sentiment stamp the set came with and curved it on my acrylic block so that it mimicked the curve of the frame.

Now who wants cookies??!

Lawn Fawn Trees of Love

I just made a set of different themed tree cards from the Lawn Fawn set called “Sweater Weather” that I got for Christmas.  I was inspired by Lawn Fawn’s design team member Lynette Kaufman, who made one for each season.  Her cards are so well done! .  I just made mine all Love cards so I can send them to Operation Write Home.

Tiddly Inks Christmas Cards

I had some fun making some Christmas cards this year with a few cute Tiddly Inks images. They are so fun to color and I had a good time trying out different skin and hair color combinations.   I never get to make as many handmade cards for Christmas as I’d like to, but I got a few out this year.  I didn’t want to post them til they made it to their destinations!  I always think I’ll start early…I made these in November…maybe next year I should do “Christmas in July” card making!  I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!
