I love this card for the gentleman in our lives and the sentiment is great to send to friends who don’t celebrate Christmas!

A touch of ink over the embossing adds some definition. This step is totally optional!

The layout works well with the other neutral colours, and could be adapted for a more traditional colour scheme too.

Slim Card using the Words of Cheer Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

I’m trying a different card base today to create the mini slim cards. These are made with the 6×6 Kraft cardstock by simply scoring in half.

The designer series paper is a returning favourite from last year called Heartwarming Hugs. It uses pretty patterns with the traditional red and green colour scheme.

You can see how I made these cards in my video tutorial….

I just love colouring with my Stampin’ Blends and I hope you find my quick tips useful!

Wink of Stella and glittery gems complete the cards!

Cardmaking with Accent Stamps

Hello Everyone,

I’m going to confess that I’m not a massive fan of all the images in the Dressed to Impress stamp set… But I just love all the accent stamps!

These lovely flowers are perfect for colouring with your favourite medium. I’ve used Stampin’ Blends in Misty Moonlight and Balmy Blue.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

This card could easily be adapted for any occasion. I think it would make a beautiful wedding card with right sentiment!

Creating Subtle Backgrounds with Decorative Masks & Pastels

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a technique to create backgrounds using the Soft Pastel Assortment.

Using this medium gives a much softer colour to the background than can be achieved with inks.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The piece was simply layered with coordinating cardstock with a die cut sentiment added with dimensionals

This card used a different mask but the same pastel colours. This time the sentiment was cut with the Double Oval punch.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Christmas Wreath Card using the Sparkle of the Season

Hello Everyone,

I’ve had this card idea in my head for a while and I’ve finally managed to make it!

For this layout I used eight die cuts which I then used to create four pieces that I could arrange to form the wreath design.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…..

The Cherry Cobbler & Gold Metallic Ribbon is absolutely gorgeous in real life. It finishes off the card brilliantly.

This sample uses more die cut, 12 in total, and uses a mixture of leaves in Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green. The sentiment is stamped with Poppy Parade.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
