Hearts Come Home to a Season Like Christmas



This picture truly doesn't do this card justice.  It is simply beautiful.  (If I must say so myself :)).  I used the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies to die cut the design. 




Here are some tips to create this card:

  • I left the design intact and simply removed all of the windows in the church and house.  
  • I used a piece of scrap Champagne Foil Sheets to crop two trees and a "baby" heart from the same set.  Adhere with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
  • Stamp the sentiment using the Season Like Christmas Stamp Set.  Crop with the Triple Banner Punch.
  • Add a 1" banner in Champagne directly under the sentiment.
  • Top it off with the beautiful (sneak peek) 1/4" Organza Ribbon.

Cheery Chirps



I tend to use Soft Sky when I want to make a stunning Christmas card.  I have to force myself to use other colors.  This time I made the same card using two different color palettes.  Which one do you like better?

Here is a look on the inside of the cards.

Smitten Mittens




This card happens to be one of three projects that my club members made in October.  (If you are local to Canton, MI and would like to join one of my Hostess Clubs, email me at julie48188@gmail.com.)



Tips & Tricks

  • First, I embossed a piece of Whisper White CS with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the snowflake.
  • I cropped out a mitten with Whisper White CS using the "solid" mitten frame lit.
  • I cropped out a mitten Real Red CS using the "detailed" mitten framelit.
  • I attached the two together with Tombow glue and adhered to the card with dimensionals.


Here is a look on the inside.


  • I used the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch to create the ruffle under the DSP.  (The Decorative Ribbon Border Punch is like having two punches.  The top and the bottom have different ruffles.)

Smitten Mittens Bundle is one of my favorite bundles from our 2017 Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set and the framelits are sold separately, however when you purchase them as a bundle, you save 10%.





Here are the products needed to create this card.  Click on the products to order from Stampin' Up anytime!!

This Little Piggy


Doesn't this card make you smile?  I designed this card a while back for one of my Breakfast Club Classes.  It was such a big hit with my friends that I couldn't let another chance go by to share it with my readers.  


Tips & Tricks

  • I stamped the image with Black Archival Ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock that I had cropped with the Triple Banner Punch.
  • I stamped a second image on a piece of Shimmer White card stock.  I watercolored this image with Powder Pink ink using my favorite Aqua Painters.
  • The little piggy is fussy cut and popped up with dimensionals.



Here are the products I used to create this card.  Click on the products below to order them from Stampin' Up anytime!!

Oh Joy, It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!!


I love the look of Soft Sky and Silver for Christmas!  Don't you?  Oh Joy is a sentiment out of the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set that is designed to coordinate with our Watercolor Christmas Project Kit.  (Stampin Up kits are perfect for those crafters that want quick and pretty results.)  



The sentiment is the only stamped image on this card.  All the other elements were cropped out with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  

Tips & Tricks

  • First I embossed the Whisper White card stock with Winter Wonder Embossing Folder and added Dazzling Diamonds to the snowflake.
  • I cropped out all three snowflakes using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.
  • I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver Embossing Powder and cropped it out with the Stitched Framelits Dies.
  • The scalloped oval is from Stampin' Up's Layering Oval Die Collection.  (A must have in my opinion.)
  • Of course, a card is not finished until the inside is done.





The Watercolor Christmas Project Kit includes all the supplies to make 20 beautiful cards.

Happiest of Days



I love the look of watercoloring.  I think I like it because you really cannot mess it up.  It makes you feel like you are a true artist.  Stampin Up makes it really easy for us with the Aqua Painters.  If you haven't used them before, you really need to try them.  They are so easy to use.  All you do is fill the barrel with tap water.  Squeeze the barrel sightly to release some of the water and "paint" over the surface that you want to watercolor.  Then, simply add color by either using reinkers or the inside top of the stamp pads.  Here is a tutorial on watercoloring.
