More Cardinals – Toile Christmas

Good Morning!  I’m back again with another cardinal card!  You can see the first one HERE. This time it’s very monochromatic and easy to make!  Here is is: Classic Christmas colors of Red & White (or in this case Very Vanilla) make this card an easy winner in the simple category.  The Toile Tidings Designer… Continue reading More Cardinals – Toile Christmas

A Card(inal) for Many Occasions

Don’t you just love a play on words?  I spent this past week-end crafting for almost 16 hours a day.....at a Home for the Hoiidays Retreat in Northern Virginia with about 20 other crafters.  I made 27 cards and 3 fancy box treat holders, all with a holiday theme. Four are Halloween Cards, twenty six… Continue reading A Card(inal) for Many Occasions

Had a little delay in getting this posted....so it’s now only 96 days until Christmas!  Unless you’ve been perusing Stampin’ Up’s 2019 Holiday Catalog, you might not know that this post is going to contain a Christmas Card.  I know it’s early for Christmas....Today marks the 100th day until Christmas!  But I needed to make… Continue reading Pine Trees & Perfectly Plaid

Stocking Stuffers

“Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.” And today is Christmas Eve, so tonight before I go to bed, I’ll be stuffing those stockings full… Continue reading Stocking Stuffers

A Christmas “Pop Up” Surprise

Do you love surprises??  I do!  Especially when it comes inside a present.  Did you know you can make a card that looks like a present and then hide a gift inside?  How about a card like this?  Usually I’m just expecting to open the card and see a familiar signature wishing me happy thoughts.… Continue reading A Christmas “Pop Up” Surprise

Merry Little Elves

I’m still not done with Christmas Cards.....but usually I’m only making one....that means that anyone who gets a Christmas card from me will get something different!  This card requires very little stamping....only the sentiment is stamped because the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series paper does all the work. The little elves are cut directly from the… Continue reading Merry Little Elves

Teeny Tiny Gift Bags

Gift bags are great for those who don’t know how to wrap presents.  I am NOT one of those people....I can wrap presents like a pro and it takes a professional “un-wrapper” to get them open.  Ask my daughters.  They can always tell when I’ve wrapped something or if their Dad has had his turn.… Continue reading Teeny Tiny Gift Bags

Two in One – Card & Gift Card Holder

Isn’t it fun when you can do two things at once?  Not the old “pat your head and rub your tummy” at the same time.  I haven’t tried it lately, but I used to be able to do it.  Now I’m more into multitasking with the cards I am making.   December is the time… Continue reading Two in One – Card & Gift Card Holder

Mrs. Claus Dreams of Snow!

When I first saw the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series paper with the whimsical elves and Santa & Mrs. Claus....I wasn’t really enamored.  I don’t have small children anymore...my two daughters are long past the wonder of Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause and his elves.  But I purchased it anyway because it was the only “fun” looking… Continue reading Mrs. Claus Dreams of Snow!

Country Christmas

Stampin’ Up has an entire Holiday Catalog full of Christmas themed stamp sets.  And they have even more Christmas themed stamp sets in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  But the Christmas card I am sharing with you today is not made with any of those, but with a stamp set called Jars of Love. Here is… Continue reading Country Christmas
