Joyful Holiday

For those who celebrate, wishing you a FANTASTIC and meaningful holiday.  Hope your day is filled with love and lots of time with family and friends.

May your day and your year be filled with Joy.


A friend of mine challenged me to create a card using only two layers.  It was hard!  I sure love my layers.  I’m happy with how the card turned out.  But in the future, I think I’ll keep using more than two layers 🙂


Supplies Used:

Stamp:  Joyful Season (139770)
Ink:  Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe, Early Espresso, Pool Party
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Real Red Pompom Trim (139617), Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (133520)




Glitter on Wood!

Oh my I did something fun when creating this card.  Glitter.  On Wood!!  I LOVE it.  In person, the glittered snowflake looks even more spectacular.  The word “Joyful” is embossed in gold, too, so there is some serious sparkle going on.


Below is a close up of the glittered snowflake.  I first put two-way glue on the snowflake and then dipped it in glitter. I attached it to the card using tombow glue.


The card design is actually pretty easy.  If you need to make a whole bunch of cards, the design could be duplicated very quickly.  Below are the supplies used:

Stamp:  Joyful Season (139770)
Ink: Crumb Cake, Night of Navy
Paper: Season of Cheer DSP, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Other: Versmark, Gold Glitter, Gold Cord, Gold Embossing Powder, Wooden Snowflake, Circle Framelits

Happy Creating,

Holiday Gift Bag Holder – with Video

I am so excited to share my latest project with you.  I designed a gift card holder that’s easy to make — and flat!  It can even be used as an ornament.  I made it flat so you can fit it in a card if you want to mail it (though you may need to make your banners a little shorter.  I get carried away :))


Below is a video with instructions on how to put it together.  Click HERE for a .pdf sheet showing the dimensions and supplies used.

Hope you enjoy!

So I am loving the new stamp set Joyful Season (139770).  It is a two-step stamp stamp, which is just plain FUN — and it’s even better in photopolymer because you can see through the stamp and position it exactly where you want it.  It can be used for the holidays, but also for general stamping fun.  A big bang for your buck.  I got the stamp set last week and have already made a bunch of cards with it.


Here’s one of the cards I made this week.  At the bottom right, you can put a sentiment if you like. I think that would look beautiful.  I used a gold doily and purposely put the white circle to the left of the doily to give it an interesting look.  I seriously love the red paper.  It’s from the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper (139590).


Keep sharing your projects with me.  I have been getting emails with projects you’ve been making and I enjoy seeing them.  Keep them coming!

Have a happy day!
