Wonderful Year Christmas Card

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

By | Cards, Christmas | No Comments

Christmas lights on houses as you drive through town, parties to gather with friends and family, Christmas music playing 24/7… Real Red card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ Whisper White: 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ Patterned Green Paper: 4″ x 4-1/4″ I love a big greeting stamp like this one from the Wonderful Year stamp set. It takes center stage on your card and all it needs is a little embellishment to finish it off. This is a Christmas card, but really any time could be the most wonderful time of the year. I think I’ll try this greeting on the…

Project Life Christmas Cards

By | Cards, Christmas, Scrapbooking | No Comments

Have you gotten in on the Project Life pocket scrapbooking craze yet? If not, that’s okay!! But you should know that those pre-printed little cards can be used for a whole lot more than scrapbooking. Project Life cards can be used to make quick & easy greeting cards too! The little 3×4 cards fit perfectly on the the front of a card and the 4×6 cards can be trimmed a little to fit. Get creative with it! For this one I cut down the Project Life card on the left. My first idea was to stamp a greeting in that…

Lots of Thank You Cards!

Can you ever send enough thank you cards? I think not. It reminds me of this quote… “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” – William Arthur Ward So yesterday when our church hosted a craft and chat I made lots and lots of thank you cards. Crafting with other people is fun but often I chat more than I craft. This time I was prepared. The day before I took some thank you cards I had designed and cut a whole bunch of card stock to make them. I also stamped my…

Bright Balloon Birthday Card

By | Birthday Cards, Cards | No Comments

This past weekend I had an absolute blast at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Event in Madison, Wisconsin. I can’t share anything from the event quite yet, but I can share the swap card I made! The basics of card swapping are you come up with one card idea, make a bunch of that same card and then you go and swap them with other card makers to get a bunch of different ideas back. I used my Quick Cards from 12×12 Paper Template to make some of these bright balloon birthday cards to swap… Tempting Turquoise card base: 5-1/2″ x…

Festive Birthday Paper

By | Cards | No Comments

“Fiesta, Fiesta, that means a party…” Every time I see this fun colorful paper I think of that song Zoe from Sesame Street sang on her Dance Party video. My daughter watched that a gazillion times when she was little. In fact we might still have it on VHS if you’d like to borrow it. Isn’t it great when your crafting supplies bring back fun memories! The official name of this paper is “Festive Birthday” but I call it my Fiesta paper. Bright colors are my favorite and how could a card made with this paper not make someone smile?!? This…
