Warmest Wishes

In love with these snow people from the January 2022 card kit "Warmest Wishes" from Simon Says Stamp. The paper is part of the kit also. I covered the vellum hill and snowman body outlines in Wink of Stella for some sparkle!

Double Easel Card

 A new fold to try- the double easel. Very easy with the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers. Craft Consortium Made By Eleves paper, sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp December card kit.

Snowy Church Scene

 I am on to week two of the Facebook group Weekly Cardmaking Challenges for 2022, the prompt was a church as a focal point. This is an older retired image from Stampin' Up! on Bashful Blue card stock. I highlighted areas with a mixture of Stickles, Wink of Stella shimmer, and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff (heated to activate). The background is an embossing folder by Crafters Companion.

Happy New Year!

Trying again while I had the supplies out. Large numbers dies by Stampin' Up! on Simon Says Stamp holograph card stock with Recollections Christmas stamps and dies. Added sequins and Wink of Stella shimmer to cocktails.

Get your jingle on!

I will be working on some New Year's and holiday thank you cards today. Originally I was going to use this for a New Year's card but it seems more Christmas-y so I'll save it for next year!

Stamps and coordinating dies by Recollections (Joann's or Michaels).

Masking Tape background

 This was a fun and easy technique that I have never tried before. Simply ink the strips of masking tape and adhere them to your white card stock. I went over the tape with a bone folder to get all of the ink to transfer better.

Ribbon and ink colors of Crisp Cantaloupe, Old Olive, and Marina Mist from Stampin' Up! Card base is Blushing Bride.

Wreath and Trees

 Today's Splitcoast CAS challenge was "trees". I used a Honey Bee trees stencil and a Stampin' Up! woodgrain embossing folder along with their Garden Green and Handsome Hunter card stocks. The Pink Pirouette seam binding ribbon was colored with a Copic marker to match the Simon Says Stamp Limited Edition Gift Card Kit wreath. Added some Pink Fresh faceted gems for ornaments.

Delft Tile

 Trying the DelftTile technique today with Simon Says Stamp Gift Card Kit and their stencil and Prize Ribbon distress oxide ink.

One More layered tag card

It's been cold and rainy and I have been sick for the past couple of days so I got to work on some holiday cards. The layered Santa's Helpers tags from the Simon Says Stamp December card kit are fun to put together and easy to finish into a card.

Santa Post

The challenge from the past Monday at Simon Says Stamp was to feature Santa and a stamp by Stampendous if you had one. I love this old fashioned Santa so I tried to make it look like a vintage postcard with some Tim Holtz distress oxide inks on cream colored card stock.

Santa's Helpers

Total cuteness with these Santa's Helpers layering ephemera papers from Simon Says Stamp's December card kit. I kept the background clean and simple with an embossed birch trees background on heavy white card stock and some punched glitter paper snowflakes.
