Holiday Series 2017 - Day 1 - Dimensional Snow Tree Card

Hello Everyone and Happy Monday!  Also, hello did you get here so fast?!?  I swear that the year has honestly FLOWN by and this month does not seem to be slowing down at all.

I'm so excited to be doing a Holiday Series this year...I could not believe when I looked back and saw that the last time I did a Holiday Series was 3 YEARS AGO!  But I'm incredibly excited to be presenting again this year here on my blog and youtube channel.

My goal for this series is to complete 12 Holiday projects.  I have way more than that sketched out and floating in my brain, however, I am a stay at home mom to 2 very young kids and time for myself can be very limited.  So I've set a goal of 12 projects but if I surpass that, I'll be ecstatic.

Onto Day 1 - Dimensional Snow Tree Card.  I have to admit that this card was created last year, it simply never got posted, so it does involve using a stamp set that is a little older but is a fantastic one for your holiday collection.  The stamp set that I am featuring today is Hero Arts "Color Layering Christmas Tree" and I'm pairing that with some White Liquid Appliqué to give the tree some really fun dimensional snow.  This card would also be incredibly easy to mass produce, especially with the use of the MISTI, which at the time I did not own last year.

Hope you guys enjoyed this card and I'll be back soon with Day 2 of the Holiday Series.

So Very Thankful Card

Hello Everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope that you all have a very happy thanksgiving surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones in celebration of what you are most thankful for.  Today, I'll be headed over to my parents house with my family to spend time and enjoy everyone's company....and to help my mom cook her fantastic Thanksgiving dinner!

For my third and final Thankful card this week, I'm featuring the Concord & 9th Give Thanks Stamp Set and the My Favorite Things Words of Gratitude Die Set (which looks like it may be discontinued but there are several alternatives that can be used).  I'm not sure what the proper term for this technique is but going to call it die cut dimensional inlay.  This is the first time that I've personally tried it and I really LOVE how it turned out.  The thankful die cut is subtle but still stands out.

Here's a video showing how I created this card using die cutting dimensional inlay.  

I hope you guys enjoyed these 3 Thankful cards created this week.  It pushed me to create more cards that I do not normally create, which is a good thing.  

Check back soon, as I'll be starting the Holiday Series of 2017 in the near future!!

MFT Grateful (OHWC)

Hello Everyone!

As promised, I have a few more fall/thankful cards for you all.  I can't believe that Thanksgiving is this week...where did the month of November go?!

For today I have a OHWC (One Hit Wonder Card), meaning I'm strictly using one stamp set to create the whole card with very little extra embellishments or other dies.  Today's card features My Favorite Things Grateful Stamp set.  I simply adore the font used for this stamp set, so much can be done with the flourish, and the price point is fantastic.

In the video I talk about and show how I turned a mistake into my card design, after a slight panic! hahaha

I'll be back very soon with another Thankful card for you guys.  I have 2 more to showcase this week! 

See you back here soon!

Simon Says Stamp - Happy Halloween Pumpkin Kitty

Hey Everyone!  I hope your week is going good.  Its very gloomy, windy, and raining here in Jersey....perfect day for Crafting!

Today I have another Halloween card for you guys using another Simons Says Stamp stamp set, Hey Pumpkin.  This one is an older one but it is seriously adorable.  And I'm pairing it with a stencil, also from Simon Says Stamp, called Stars & Dots.  And this card was super quick and easy to create, which is always plus.

I absolutely LOVE all of the sparkle on this card, and this picture above really shows it all.  Here's a video showing how I created this super quick and simple card!

Hope you guys enjoyed and I'll be back soon with yet another Halloween card.  Trying to squeeze them all in within the next week!
