Christmas Gingerbread Cookies Card

Hello! This my second to last Christmas card post. For this cute gingerbread card I used Hero Arts’ Christmas Gingerbread Cookies stamp set and coordinating dies. I stamped the cookies with Versamark ink onto white cardstock, heat embossed them with white embossing powder, and ink blended them with Distress Oxide inks in Tea Dye first and then Vintage photo just around the edges.

Christmas Gnome Print & Cut Card

Christmas Gnome Print Cut Card

Gnomes are really in this Christmas.  I had placed an order for the Simon Says Stamp November Kit which included gnome dies, a stamp set with fun gnome and tree images as well as sentimens, cardstock and envelopes, a Life Changing blender brush and a few other goodies.  My order was taking so long to get shipped (I guess because kits go out at the end of the month) that I felt I would not have time to post projects with it before Christmas came and went (lots of travel for me this month).  So I decided to look for an alternative so that I could satisfy my gnome craving before Christmas.

Clean and Simple Shaker with TSM Hip Hip Hooray

The stamp market hip hip hooray shaker card

VIDEO: Easy Flippin’ Awesome Cards with Pattern Paper

Lawn Fawn Flippin' Awesome Cards

I am totally addicted to Lawn Fawn’s Flippin’ Awesome Dies. I had to make a considerable effort a couple of days ago to stop making waterfall cards and do something else. Years ago, I made several of these cards without the dies. You can find many videos on YouTube showing you how to make them. They are not that hard to make but this die set is a game changer for me. I used the Critter Concert stamp set for the first card and then decided to use pattern paper (of which I have tons) to make the process go even faster.

VIDEO: Glitter Vinyl Mermaid Cards

Mermaid cards with glitter vinyl

Hello! After a major creative crisis and a few vinyl projects for friends, I am back with two mermaid scale cards using glitter adhesive vinyl. Previously, I had only used vinyl to decorate glasses or metal mugs but one day I thought that vinyl would be a great material to use on cards when watercoloring. The adhesive on the vinyl is super strong and it can be cut with a Silhouette Cameo or other die cutting machine (it cuts like butter so well!) or you could also cut it with dies and even punches.
