Timeless Tidings – 20 Cards in a Flash!

Confession time. When I first saw this project, I thought, “Oh, that’s nice.” and moved on. Some time after that, one of my down line folks told me how beautiful it was. I ordered it. It sat on my shelf. Last week, I decided to put it together. Oh! My! Gosh!. It is so much more beautiful that it looks in the pictures! Timeless Tidings has moved way near the top of my favorites list. And these gorgeous cards went together with little fuss. Yes, Timeless Tidings – 20 Cards in a Flash!

Joyous Noel and Joy Fold Christmas – Why Not?

Today’s fun fold is a repeat of joy fold card! I spent a long time avoiding making joy fold cards. I had convinced myself that it was too complicated. Look at me now. I love the Joyous Noel Specialty Paper and knew it would be great to make a joy fold card with. What do you think? Can you have too much joy?

Here are links to some other joy fold cards that I’ve made. Here, and here.

Design Notes for Joy Fold Christmas Card:

I always think of a joy fold card as card with little card on top of it! For the little card on the top of this crd, I did some heat embossing, as you know, one of my favorite techniques. If you want to learn more about joy fold cards, check out this tutorial. Joy Fold Tutorial

Here’s a peek at the inside of this card.

Winter is Coming – Really!

Do you remember the game, Tic – Tac – Toe? Well, over at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday, we are doing a card making version, Tic – Tac – Tuesday. I made this Winter card as a sample for this challenge.

Here’s the banner for the challenge, I did the vertical – Foil, Winter, and Plaid.Go on over to the site later today (yes, Monday) and see all the other designer samples.

Design Notes for Winter Card:

It all started with plaid. I knew I had some of one of the plaid papers from Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper package. Winter? BRRR just came to my mind. I love using the Large Letter Framelits, so it all just fell together.

With this picture you can see the sentiment from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set on the inside.

And can you ever go wrong with a z- fold card? This is actually a double z fold. I guess I just needed more room for all the r’s! I used the Softly Falling embossing folder on the Garden Green Card Stock to add a little texture. After the embossing, I added just a hint of white with a dauber and some Craft White ink. A few Silver Glimmer snow flakes finished off the card.

It’s All A-Glitter for Christmas

Today I’m showing a card I might never have made. But, I had to. I am part of the Design Team for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. This month the technique challenge is to make a card with a glitter background! Wow! Talk about challenge for the Design Team! I just don’t do glitter! But, I did what I needed to do and I think the card came out pretty nicely and with minimum amount of glitter in my craft room (and face, and hands, etc.)

Go over to Try Stampin’ on Tuesday to see the tutorial and lots of great samples of the technique.

Design Notes for Glitter Christmas Card:

Well, I pretty much followed the tutorial. I tried to get the green ‘shapes’ to be Christmas tree shapes. Pretty close, right? I used the Sweetly Stitched Framelits to cut out some trees with little white garland. Not sure why I thought it needed more gold but I really like the look of the Gold Mini Sequin  Trim!

Nothing Sweeter for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday

It’s Tuesday. Try Stampin’ on Tuesday has a new challenge today. I created one of the samples for the challenge using the Nothing Sweeter stamp set. I used some of my favorite Designer Paper, Under the Mistletoe! (Oh, please scroll to the end to find out all about today’s big sale!)

Design Notes for Nothing Sweeter Christmas Card:

What a fun card this was to create. I’ve been itching to use my new Nothing Sweeter stamp set so this was the perfect opportunity. Stamp first with the Old Olive ink, then decorate with Real Red. Could it be any easier?

Cutting out the trees was easy with the Sweetly Stitched Framelits Dies. The strip along the side was just a plain strip of card stock transformed by one of the Sweetly Stitched Framelits. Can’t you imagine using it for lots of great projects?

Two scraps of the Under The Mistletoe paper were left on my craft table but found a purpose. Well, two purposes!
