I had a challenging group of products to work with this week. They’re all great items, but the challenge was how to use them all in one card! I hope I did an okay job for you all! I wanted to create a “floating” effect for the ornament by having it hanging in the clear “window” of the card. In this video you’ll see some of my creative process at work, as I change the card a bit as I go along. In hindsight, I probably would put different paper on the steps of the card, but that is what creating is all about–solving problems, and growing as you learn. And learning to accept the “not so perfect”! I wish you a very warm holiday season as it gets ever closer to Christmas!

Hey all! Here is today’s post finally! Uploading took forever. Today I’m using some intricate cutting dies. If you have any intricate dies, the “Tool n’ One” is a must! It makes it so easy to remove the “innies” from the dies. The metallic gold paper is just gorgeous however you use it, and the Joyous Greetings Paper Tole is a joy to work with (he he). Enjoy, everybody! And happy holiday crafting/decorating/shopping!

11/25/14 5:45pm PST UPDATE: The bundle link has been fixed. Sorry for the mix-up and thank you for your patience!

Hello, everyone! Sorry for the one-day-late post! I always say, “better late than never!”–(I hope you agree). :) This week I’m showing off Janie’s Snow Friends Stamps, Snowfall stencil, and shiny Snowflake Corners Foil Paper (which is actually more of a cardstock than paper). I also mention this dotted vellum, and this embossing paste (the jar on Paper Wishes appears different from mine, but don’t worry, it’s the same stuff!). It’s a wintery wonderland with adorable penguins in a Christmas tree formation. If someone gave this card to me, it would make me smile! I hope it has the same effect on you! Enjoy.

This week I have a vintage looking card with some copper shine. The Postcard Embossing Folder combined with Heritage papers and Copper Stazon stands out nicely on the card, with a couple of pearls for an elegant accent! The ribbon is an ivory crepe from the Crepe Ribbon Set. The Oval Swing Card Template is easy to use, and makes a card that is fun to open. There are several other templates available that have the same mechanism with different shapes. I hope you all enjoy!

Happy holiday cardmaking to all! Today I’m excited to show you this cool new material called Shimmer Sheetz. They are are so versatile, and work lovely with embossing folders! Speaking of which, I showcase the new Christmas Words embossing folder, but the Merry Christmas embossing folder is also including in your bundle! I hope you take advantage of this great deal. By the way, I finally got a new die-cutting machine! It’s called the E-Bosser, which makes die-cutting and embossing so, so easy. It’s a bit of investment up front, but the time and effort saved is definitely worth it. Join me as I share with you my “new toy!” :)

This week’s card is another Christmas card! This one is a step card, so more little panels to fill with die-cut delights! As you can see, I’ve filled them with as many as I could without going overboard! The Merry & Bright Artful Card Kit is a cute, whimsical take on Christmas, with a bright color palette and lovely little illustrations. The white pearl sheets are beautiful and perfect to use in small amounts to add impact to the card. I especially like what I’ve added to the card last minute: Diamond Ice Stickles! You’ve seen me use this before, and it gives just that extra pop of glitter where you want it. Need I say more?
