Today I’m sharing a bunch of tags that I made with Concord & 9th’s Christmas Cheer Tags stamp set. I used my new Sizzix Sidekick, which is a small die-cutting machine that is great to keep on your desk, and the dies that came with it. Some of the tags are made with nothing but stamping while others have die-cut shapes and some layering. I did not want to to any heat embossing for the video but the green tag with the gold doily does have white embossing.
Do you use planner stamps? Even if you don’t, you might want to get some to make cards with. Many planner stamp sets have images for the main holidays so you can make cards for most holidays or occasions with one stamp set. For these cards, I used the Holiday Planner Icons stamp set from Hero Arts. I paired it with MFT’s Handwritten Holidays stamps. Since they are large and bold, I thought they complimented the small stamps well.
Happy Saturday! How cute are the critters in this Avery Elle stamp and die set called A Merry Little Christmas? I couldn’t wait to make a card with it. I stamped all the animals onto Neenah Solar White Cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I then colored them with Arteza Real Brush Markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies. You could also use colored pencils or Copic markers for this simple coloring.
Here is the video I promised showing how to put together the card I posted November 14. For all the pictures, you can check out that post HERE. The card I made in the video is a little simpler. The number of die cuts is cut in half (no pun intended :)) because I didn’t back all the ornaments on the acetate. This means that you can see the back of the ornaments but they don’t look messy because I used a Xyron sticker machine to apply adhesive to the diecuts. The supply list is below the video. Thanks for stopping by!
Hello! I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving! I was supposed to post the video for the Altenew Brilliant Baubles card next but I was going to edit it while out of town and I forgot my headphones :(. So instead, here is the card I made for my younger son’s birthday with Concord & 9th’s Birthday Stacks Stamps and Dies. They are meant to create keepsake 3D cards like this one but you can definitely create regular cards as well. For more ideas and an assembly video, visit the Concord & 9th Blog.
Today I’m sharing a trifold card with an acetate front featuring Altenew’s Brilliant Baubles Stamp & Die Bundle (also available separately-all links below). So many options for making ornaments! I used Altenew inks for the first time: Red Sunset Mini Cube Set, Deep Blue Seas Mini Cube Set, and Green Fields Mini Cube Set. I will post a video showing how to make it within the next few days. Altenew is having a big sale going on right now with up to 45% off (this bundle is reduced 5%).
This is definitely not a card you would mass-produce but it sure is beautiful (if I say so myself) and fun to make.

Thanksgiving is almost here! Okay, I guess you already knew that. I’m just not ready. But at least I have a couple of Thanksgiving cards ready to go. I used the versatile color layering stamps and dies from Hero Arts called Grateful Leaves.
For some reason, every year I have started working on Christmas cards really late. I was determined to start earlier this year so I started out with an easy to make card.
Hello! I’m back with some more cards made with Altenew Painted Butterflies Stamps & Dies. I posted the card below a few weeks ago and wanted to use the dies this time. I created two cards with slightly different color diecuts placed along a die cut front panel. A strip of pattern paper adds a backdrop for the “floating” butterflies.
Yes, the llama puns that are so trendy right now are pretty cheesy but they make me smile. I don’t have any llama stamps or dies and I have mostly been using my Silhouette Cameo to cut vinyl, but I couldn’t resist using this $.99 cut file, called DIPLLAMA, from the Silhouette Design Store to make a loooong overdue 5″x7″ card for my nephew. The “CONGRATS” is cut with the Double-Cut Alphabet Dies from Concord & 9th. They are so versatile.
