Another VERY simple set of Christmas cards!

Another VERY simple card set….I have A LOT of Christmas cards to make. Some as to be given as gifts, some to be given just as. Here is another super simple card set that can be made with minimal supplies and can be adjusted slightly to make it unique.

I started by using Fiskars X-Large Circle punch and punching out 6 different patterned circles from a mix of Stampin Ups 2018 In Colour Designer Series Paper as well as Echo Park’s Merry & Bright paper pad.

I then used Fiskars Medium Circle Punch to punch out 6 circles out of Neenah Solar White Cardstock. Then I took Impression Obsession Cling Stamp – Nordic Star and Impression Obsession Cling Stamp – Nordic Ornament stamps as well as Altenew’s Gold Enchanted Pigment Ink and stamped 3 of each of the stamps on the white cardstock circles.

Then I adhered the stamped circles onto the Patterned paper circles randomly. 

I adhered the circles onto an A2 cardbase. Then I also added a cute little bow that I made from Stampin Ups Gold Sequin Ribbon on each of the circles to make them look a bit more like a wreath.

I made coordinating envelopes of each by stamping each of the stamps to match the card using Altenew’s Crimson and Just Green Crisp dye inks. I also decorated an acetate card box using Some red and white polkadot ribbon and more of the sequin ribbon in a bow. 

Another super simple set is DONE!

Hello Baby Girls…

Two week old Twin girls need a warm welcome into the world. Although they shared the same womb that doesn’t mean they need to share the same card!

Card #1:

Using Stampin Up’s First Steps Stamp set, I stamped the tiny footprints and a beautiful sentiment using Versamark and heat embossed it all using Brutus Monroe’s Sterling Embossing powder on Simon Says Stamp’s Cardstock in Cotton Pink. I used a heart edge border punch to decorate the edge.

I adhered this onto a panel of Recollections’ Iridescent White cardstock measuring approximately 4.25×5 inches. I applied a panel of craft foam to the panel and attached everything to a card base measuring 4.25×5.5 inches… Done!

I absolutely LOVE this stamp. Sooo sweet. It could be used as both a welcome or sympathy card. But this one is definitely for a happy welcome!

I stamped the both the image in Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Brutus Monroe’s Sterling Embossing powder. For the sentiment I stamped in Catherine Pooler Dye Inks in ‘It’s a Girl’ and heat embossed using Brutus Monroe’s ‘Fairy Dust’ embossing powder.

I then used an EK Success edge punch to decorate the trim of the main panel and adhered it to a panel of pink glitter cardstock measuring approximately 4 x5.25 inches. I backed it with craft foam and attached it to a card base measuring approximately 4.25×5.5 inches… Card #2 complete!

Playing with Patterned Paper – Quick Easter Cards

So I’ve always LOVED patterned paper… The designs/prints… So many choices and such beautiful colours. But what so i do with them? How do I successfully incorporate them into my card making without it looking cluttered in my eyes?

I opted to give it a shot for some easy Easter cards. I was so busy filling orders for others that I totally lost the time to make my own… Enter the patterned paper… No stamping!
