More Ornamental Background


Hi everyone!  It is so much fun seeing everyone's creations pop up over on StampNation and blog land using the SOA Winterhaven Collection.  Have you grabbed yours yet?  I hear there are only a few left.

For my card today I stamped and embossed in white the Ornamental Background stamp onto black card stock.  I love how it turned out, but wanted to add a bit of color.  I grabbed my Nuvo drops to add a drop of blue to the center of each ornament.  Think of all the pops of colors you could use here!  There are so many different colored Nuvo drops, so many possibilities!

I embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black card stock and cut a flag end and attached it to my card.  Some Black & White twine finishes it off.  

I am adding this over at Christmas Card Challenges.


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Celebrate big


Hi everyone!  Can you believe it?  I am not posting a Christmas card today! :)  Today's card was inspired by the colors over at Color Throwdown.


I LOVE these flowers from Eva's Favorite Flowers stamp set and the lattice from the Lattice Frame Die.

I am adding this over at Seize the Birthday: Anything Goes.

Merry Monday & Christmas Card challenges

Hi friends!  I am back again today with another Christmas card inspired by the sketch over at Merry Monday and the inspiration photo over at Christmas Card Challenges.


Here is the sketch:


The inspiration photo over at Christmas Card Challenges:


I love the purples and silver.  The background stamp & Holly leaves & berries are from the Stamp of Approval Winterhaven Collection.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

SOA Winterhaven is available!

Hi everyone!  The new Stamp of Approval Winterhaven Collection is now available in the shop! The Add-on dies have already sold out, but you will be able to purchase those later on.  Hurry and get your box before they sell out!  They won't last long.

Here's another card using the gorgeous Poinsettia & the Good Stuff Dies.


Are you all in love with this Poinsettia as much as I am?!  It's just so amazing!  I stamped the Poinsettia and then masked it to stamp the leaves.  Absolutely LOVE the font on the sentiment too.

This card would be pretty easy to mass produce!

I will add this over at Christmas Card Challenges.  I am thinking I really need to make a card just like this using the inspiration photo over at the challenge.  What do you think?

Here is the inspiration photo.

SOA Winterhaven Release Day!!!


Hi everyone!  It's release day for the SOA Winterhaven Collection!  So exciting!

I have some more cards to share with you today using goodies from the release.

I created 4 of these cards while I had my supplies out.  I created 2 with the same sentiment and then another 2 with a different sentiment and of course, changed colors on each one.


I am so in love with this Poinsettia stamp from the 'Tis the Season stamp set.  It is so unique and fun!  

After stamping the poinsettia and leaves (masked the poinsettia before stamping the leaves), I trimmed my panel down and fussy cut around the Poinsettia and leaves.  I love the look this gives.  I added some silver glitter paper to add some more sparkle and stamped the sentiment using Black Jack ink.  Yes, I did a little stamp surgery on this Merry Christmas stamp.  It comes as a long sentiment and I wanted to use it this way so a simple snip and voila.  I can easily use it the way it was created by putting them back together where I cut them apart.

There are dies for this set as an ADD-ON.  I have already placed my order for them (I am not a fan of a lot of fussy cutting, though this Poinsettia is pretty easy to cut out).  You can also do this technique with the dies by doing partial die cutting, but I wanted to show you that you can easily do this by fussy cutting.


I had to do a blue Poinsettia.  I embossed the center of the flowers with silver embossing powder.  This sentiment is part of the 'Tis the Season stamp set.

Here are all 4 together to show the different colors I used.
