Triple Time Wreath

I have been intrigued by the Triple Time stamping technique for several years now. For some reason or another, I never got around to trying it. I am so in love with the Painted Harvest stamp set and started seeing wreaths made with it everywhere online. I thought it would be a perfect technique to allow for the focus to be on the wreaths. I doubled the linen thread to make the cutest little bow. Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler are beautiful classic Christmas colors. I am so happy with how it turned out!

Dapper Bethlehem

I am trusting I’m not the only person that had completely forgotten to get any Christmas Designer Series Paper yet, so here’s a fun alternative – I searched through all my DSP and knew as soon as I saw the black and white sheet in Whole Lot of Lovely, I would sponge it with Dapper Denim to make it match! Remember that any DSP that has white or light areas can be sponged to match your project!

Dapper Bethlehem Front

Here’s a side angle to see that I glued the background die flat to the card and popped the front die cut up with Dimensionals to give it a little pop:

Perfect Plum Painted Harvest

I can’t get enough of this Painted Harvest stamp set! It is so beyond versatile and I really like using them as my own “Designer Series Paper” for backgrounds. Since the last card I made using this set was super bright, I thought I’d tone it down a little and focus on purples. So happy with this!

Candy Cane Christmas Bag Card

I apologize for the length of time since my last post. I was crazy busy putting samples together and getting organized for the Mystery Hostess Party I did last Saturday. Everyone seemed to have fun, so I will call it a success! One of the samples I made is this fun card that shows off the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits are super fun – I love all the extra dies that come with it, including the banner and heart dies I used on the front.  With the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot, I was able to carefully center the heart die to cut the candy cane design just where I wanted it.  The Real Red Enamel Shapes from the Brights collection give it little pops of shine.  The top corners of the pull out card are rounded using the corner rounder punch on the top of the Envelope Punch Board. Sometimes we forget about those tools when they are tucked away. So glad I dusted it off for some of my recent projects!

Quick & Simple Star of Light

I absolutely love the Star of Light stamp set with the matching Starlight Thinlits dies. They work beautifully together to make quick and simple cards that highlight the intricacy of the dies. The dies cut perfectly with the Precision Base Plate. And is that “galaxy” stamp in the background not awesome? This is truly my favorite Christmas stamp set this season! I adore and miss retired 2014-2016 In Colors Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon. So which one of these do you like the most? I’m leaning more towards Blackberry Bliss, Gold Glimmer and Very Vanilla.  Tell me what you think!

Soft Dapper Star

I really love all the products in the Holiday Catalog. However, the minute I saw the Star of Light set, I knew that would be my all-time favorite. So, here is another card I put together as a sample for my club today.  I am a sucker for all shades of blue. It is my absolute favorite color and Dapper Denim and Soft Sky work beautifully together with the Starlight Thinlits dies. I decided to stamp the sentiment on Vellum, so the photo doesn’t do it justice. In real life, the sentiment is black, not the hazy gray from the photo. If you decide to do any stamping on Vellum, be sure to use Staz-On permanent ink and hit it with the heat tool for a couple seconds. I also didn’t touch it for at least 24 hours…just to be safe. I am very pleased with how this card came out.
