Hello, my sweet friends! The Ruffled Flowers stamps and dies from Altenew are not new but I can’t seem to get enough of them. I did not use the dies for this 4″x4″ card, only one of the outline stamps and two of the sentiment stamps.
Last Christmas post! This card features one of the stamps from The Stamping Village’s Holiday Seals stamps set, as well as Altenew’s Flowing Drops stencil. The Holiday Seals stamp set is a collaboration of 12 companies. It’s neat to see companies in the business banding together.

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.
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.
Ready for another interactive card? Here is a cute spinner card made with some basic supplies that you probably already have (and if you don’t have them, you should :)).
I’ve had some fun playing with The Stamp Market’s Hip Hip Hooray stamps and dies. At first glance it’s a basic set but there is so much you can do with it. I have a couple more cards that I will post individually. This first one is a simple shaker card that I think is very classy and can be gender neutral depending on the shaker bits.
Do you like free stuff? I do! Especially when it’s something related to crafting. Scrapbook.com has been adding digital cut files to their website and they have a couple of free files (no purchase necessary) so you can try them out. Links to the free files are at the end of the post. This file is called Floral Sampler. Just type “digital” into the search box and you can see all the digital bundles that are available
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.
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.
