Well, Christmas Eve has arrived….and what a perfect time to share two Santa cards I created using the Santa Stache stamp set from Stampin’ Up! Actually, these two cards are the exact same layout with just one difference. The card above uses Trim the Tree designer paper for its border. Here’s the “twin” of the card above: Actually, this card is also a twin of the nutcracker card I… Read More »
Here are two more nutcracker characters created with the Santa Stache stamp set. The nutcracker featured above is another one I created with Pintrest inspiration, and I don’t remember how much I copied. What I love about this guy is all the detail added to the card. Project notes: The hat and jacket were stamped onto colored card stock, then fussy cut with scissors. The shirt “buttons” are actually 1/8″… Read More »
I fell in love when I first saw the Santa Stache stamp set! The Santa and nutcracker images are so cute…especially with the mustache cutouts. Today’s card is not original with me, but one that I found on Pintrest. I don’t remember if this is exactly like the one I saw, but I know that most of the elements are the same so I’m not claiming it to be my… Read More »
Doesn’t the Ornamental Pine stamp set from Stampin’ Up! make an absolutely gorgeous Christmas card??? I sure think so!! I received this beautiful card from my upline and just LOVE IT!! The Ornamental Pine stamp set isn’t one that I personally purchased, but I really did consider it. I’m just like all of you however, and have to live within a “stamp budget” so opted to purchase some other stamp… Read More »

Today’s featured card is similar to one I shared in my December newsletter. It uses the Wondrous Wreath stamp set to create a “garland”. The technique is really simple to do. Simply stamp the wreath image as desired and cut it out using the Big Shot and Wonderful Wreath Framelits. Then, simply cut the wreath in half and you are left with two pieces to use as garland. Add a… Read More »

Today’s card was a choice offered at my November Holiday Card… Read More »

Today’s card uses the Tree Punch (135859) from Stampin’ Up! in a whole new way. Several years ago I took an introductory class to learn the art of Zentangle. I love “tangling”, but unfortunately don’t find (or take) the time to do it. Today’s card came about when I asked myself a “What if” question…”What if I punched a tree shape and tried tangling on it?” Here’s the result. Project… Read More »
