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!

Golden Light Over Bethlehem

Each year I hold a couple card making classes at my church. We take a couple hours out of our hectic schedules and enjoy making two cards. This year’s Christmas card class took place this past Saturday. To get them warmed up, I started with a simple yet stunning card that I’m sharing with you today. Tomorrow you’ll get to see their stepped-up card that features more techniques. I just love the stunning star on this one!

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.
