St. Nick Christmas Card




 It's Christmas in July, that's when crafters start on Christmas cards, so they'll be done by the end of November and ready to mail out. After doing all of the work to make our beloved Christmas cards, we want the recipient to have the full month of December to display our cards.

My card is made using the St. Nick Die Set .



The background was made by adding Stormy Sky Distress Ink on a white cardstock that had been cut with the Emerald Cut Labels and Tag Die Set.  


The panel was then embossed using the Argyle Plaid 3D Embossing Folder.  This panel was mounted on a white cardstock panel that was also cut with the same die set and glued to a red card. St. Nick and the tree were then glued on the front panel.

The Sentiment was made using the Snowflake Wishes Stamp and Die Set, with the Wishes die-cut from gold cardstock and the sentiment stamped in black on white cardstock.

Get Well "Fence" Card



This dog on roller skates is just too cute! I opted to make my Dalmatian yellow instead of white, because I could lol. And layered it on a fence card, I'm kind of on a fence card kick at the moment.  Since it's a get-well card, flowers were added because a dog and flowers would make anyone feel better.

To make my card, the Roller Disco Dottie Die Set from Spellbinders was used. If you look closely, you can see that I layered Dottie on gray cardstock to give a shadow effect and popped her up on the fence card.

1. To make the "fence" card, white cardstock was cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and folded in have to make a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card.
2. Then on the top panel only, 1/4" strips were cut until you have 5 strips. 
3. One of the strips was cut in half and glued to the top of the card, with both of the bottom strips even with the bottom back of the card.
4. The remaining strips are evenly spaced and glued to the back of the two strips that were glued to the top.


The flowers were made with the Autumn Sealed Sprigs Die Set (this is one of my all-time favorite sets).

The Sentiment was made using the Snowflake Wishes Clear Stamp and Die Set, but don't let the name fool you! It has sentiments for many, many occasions.


Spellbinders has a new, pretty die-cut embossing machine, it's the Platinum Scout Lilac Shimmer Die-cut and Embossing Machine 3.5". It's the perfect size to sit on your desk and cut these dies without getting up.

Caring Thoughts Card



Today I have a card that was made using the new Dancin' in the Rain Die Set from Spellbinders.
The set is so cute and it's fun coming up with different colors for the umbrella.  

The background was made using the Head In The Clouds Embossing Folder to emboss the top half of a white cardstock panel. To get the blue on the paper, Stormy Sky Distress Ink was brayered on the side of the panel that has the clouds indented.
The flowers and leaves were die-cut from the The Botanical Solarium Die Set. the flowers were cut from white glitter paper and sponged with different colors of Distress Ink.



Spellbinders has a beautiful new small die-cut machine, the  Lilac Shimmer Platinum Scout Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. It's the perfect size to sit on your desk, so you don't have to get up each time you want to cut something small.

Watercolor Floral Card


Hi my friends, today I have a card made using the pretty Summer Plumeria Clear Stamp Set from RubberStamp.com



The flowers were stamped on watercolor paper with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink and colored with Distress Watercolor Pencils in Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron and Villainous Potion.

The flowers were then shadowed with grays and then the panel was splattered with black ink.

Extreme Double-sided Tape 1/8" from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L was placed below the flowers and sprinkled with purple glitter.

The sentiment was stamped in black, layered and popped up below the glitter strip.

The background was made with the Watercolor Striped Stencil from Altenew and Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron. The flower panel was popped up on this.

Have a crafty day!

Miss You Press Plate Card


 I'm playing with my Miss You Press Plate from Spellbinders and I used it without a Letter Press.

Here's how I did it-
1. The plate was inked with red VersaFine Ink.
2. The inked plate was placed, inked side down, on decorative paper from the Paper Rose Collection.
3. This was then run through an embossing machine the same way die are..
4. Remove the plate to see the beautiful, inked impression.

Here are the products used with the links-
