An Encouraging Happy New Year


Happy New Year! It's been awhile since I posted, and to be honest, I almost forgot how to do it! This first card of the year was sent to a dear friend going through a lot. I love to use my cards to encourage and send a little hug in the mail. I love receiving REAL mail, you know the kind with handwriting on the front and a real stamp? So, I imagine my cards bringing a smile to anyone I send them to.

Holly and Sparkle

Today's card was fun! I love coloring and using the Stampin' Blends is easy. These large holly images from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set usually are overlooked. Here they make a lovely background stamped in Black onto Soft Sea Foam card stock. They are colored with Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler markers. 

All your work is finished after you color, so just stamp your sentiment, cut out with Stitched Shapes dies, layer and add with Stampin' Dimensionals. I added a little sparkle with Champagne Rhinestones.

Merry Ornament Christmas Card

Second card from my recent Christmas Workshop. I created this using the unexpectedly wonderful Ornamental Envelopes stamp set and Envelopes Dies. I loved the way the dies helped me cut out those ornament shapes. One die cuts all the shapes for you. I left some just stamped, and added a bow and a Star Designer Element to others. 

My Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper did all the rest of the work for me! It is one of my absolutely favorite papers of the season. The Copper Foil "Merry" was cut using the Word Wishes dies.

Fun Fold Perfectly Plaid Christmas Card

I recently had a Christmas Craft Time (in shifts over a 3-day period so there was much social distancing) and here is one of the cards I created for my gals to make. After picking out the prints from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper I  created from that point and added three trees across the belly band that were stamped from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set.

Here is the inside of the card, where I stamped another sentiment and then another tree. The belly band has two trees in the background which are adhered right to the band and then one tree in the middle that is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. The sentiment across the trees is cut out using the All Dressed Up Dies.
UPDATE: Here are the measurements for the Fun Fold Card that several people have asked for:
Card Base: 5-1/2" x 11"
Score at: 1-1/4", 3-3/8", 7-5/8", 9-3/4"

Belly Band 1" x 11" Fold around card after finishing. Trim if necessary.
White Insert:  4-1/8" x 5-3/8"
Two Matching Designer Series Paper Patterns: 2" x 5-3/8"
Two Matching Coordinating Designer Series Paper Patterns: 1-1/4" x 5-3/8"
(Optional: Two MORE coordinating pieces DSP 2" x 5-3/8" for inside panels).
