Very Merry Thinlits

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

How are you doin't on your Christmas card making?  Need some more ideas?  Today's card is a fun combination of items from the Holiday Catalog as well as things from the Annual Catalog.  While I didn't design this card, I made it at our team weekend retreat back in October.

  • Our "Merry" sentiment takes center stage on this card, cut with the Expressions Thinlits Die.
  • The banners are cut with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits which line up perfectly with the "Merry Christmas to You" sentiment from the very handy hostess-exclusive stamp set Perfectly You.
  • There are two different designer  papers – I Am Me (Blue waves and coral polka dots) and Gingham Garden (olive grid).
  • Two small bows from White Baker's Twine held on with Glue Dots are the perfect accent to the banner theme.
  • The final touch are three Subtles Brads in Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party.

The black cardstock really ties together all of the fun colors!

Believe

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Here's a pretty card we made at out recent Heartfelt Stampers Team Christmas party.  It's a simple card, but has a few "wow" factors.

Snowflake Soiree stamp set is still a favorite, even though it didn't make it into the Holiday Catalog this year.   It's still available!
Pretty color scheme is Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive.  "Believe" is stamped with the Gold Metallic Pad.
Use Shimmer White Cardstock for an extra added look of elegance.
Who doesn't love our Cherry Cobbler Ribbon this season!  I've sold buckets of it!
Attach a small Rhinestone to the "i" in "Believe".
Notice any brand-spankin' new product on this card?  It's the Gold Sequin Trim pieces in the centers of the snowflakes.  It's available beginning January 3rd and you're going to love all its uses.

Christmas Pop-Up Card and Thank You Thursday!

Cmas popup

I wanted to highlight the Pop 'n Cuts Card Base and Label today with a Christmas card idea.  This is a fun way to make interactive cards using the Big Shot.

  • I first ran my Cherry Cobbler cardstock through the Big Shot using the Card Base Pop 'n Cuts with the magnetic Label Pop 'n Cuts inserted inside the base.
  • Decorating the front of the card was a snap using the Ovals Collection Framelits and the pretty Special Seasons stamp set.
  • I added a Hardware Clip Essentials with Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green ribbons and some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the tree.  Don't forget the 2-Way Glue Pen for the glitter!

Cmas popup opened

  • On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Messages set on Whisper White cardstock then cut it out using the Deco Labels Collection Framelits that coordinate with the shape on the Pop 'n Cuts
  • I created a place to write a message by using Whisper White cardstock, rounding the corners and stamping the pine cone bough image in the corner.
