Hello Everyone! I don’t know about you but I love making my own gift tags. I also have a lot of young nieces and how cute is this Unicorn Christmas Stamp by Stampendous?
For these tags I cut out 6 tags from 110 lb white card stock. I also went through my Card Kit stash from last year and pulled out these scrap papers to cut with the tag die. Any tag die will work – there are so many out there. I then just layered that pattern paper onto the white tags with an adhesive tape runner. (any will work – here’s a link to something similar)
Hi everyone! I’m a lover of classic Christmas colors – but every now and then I feel the urge to create with soft pastel colors!
This card is very easy to create and even to mass produce if you want! I started with a piece of light pink cardstock that I die cut with a stitched rectangle die. I sprayed the back of the Echo Park Magical Snowfall Stencil with some Pixie Spray and and pounced on some white pigment ink over the stencil. I love the look of the soft white on the pastel pink! If you wanted to have crisp white snowflakes you could use Versamark Ink and white embossing powder – but I like the look of the soft snowflakes.
I die cut a large snowflake from some gold foiled cardstock to use as my center piece and added some coiled silver thread for added interest. My sentiment is from the Avery Elle Christmas Magic stamp set and I heat embossed it with gold powder to match the snowflake die cut. And that’s it! See what I mean! Super easy! Thanks for joining me!
Fall! What a great time of the year. I love all the things that happen in this magical months of the year…leaves falling, kids tricking or treating maybe, apple picking, pumpkin gutting, and lots of other wonderful activities that one can engage in when it is cool and breezy outside. Whoa! Wait a minute…I live in Sunny Central Florida where the temps are in the 90s long into the fall season…One can dream though, can’t they? In the meantime, I will just treasure my wonderful fall activities with card making!

Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here with a super quick Christmas card using just a few supplies and a fabulous sentiment stamp by Stampendous called Christmas Sky.
This card could be easily duplicated and with a slight change of colors, be made uniquely for each recipient. I stamped the wonderful sentiment from the Christmas Sky set using VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine black embossing powder.
I blended over the card stock with Stormy Sky and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide inks. I die cut the panel with the Eyelet Elegance Rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs and set it aside.
I wanted to keep my card base simple so I ran a white cardfront measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ through my Big Shot with a snowflake embossing folder. I trimmed it down to 4 x 5-1/4″ and wrapped it with a pretty white ribbon. I adhered the snowflake layer to a white card base using Gina K. Connect liquid glue.
I then popped up the main panel using foam squares. To finish off the card I added a bunch of Simply White Nuvo drops. A simple card design just perfect for multiple cards! I think this would look lovely in purples and blues and even pinks. What do you think? The Christmas Sky set isn’t available in the Scrapping for Less shop, but I found a couple of cute scene building sets with fun sentiments that would work with this design… Here Comes Santa Claus by My Favorite Things and Merry Christmas Greeting by My Favorite Things.
This is a 5 1/2 inch square card. I used a die to cut for squares to make the window from a piece of pattern paper from the Santa’s Workshop paper pad cut to 5 1/2 inches, then I made a template of curtains, traced it onto a different piece of pattern paper and cut it out. I adhered the curtains to the window frame.
I then used a solid blue piece from the paper to use as the background. I stamped all of the images for both cards from the “Merry and Bright” stamp set, colored them with alcohol markers, and cut them out with my Scan N Cut.
Next, I adhered the images to the blue panel and checked on placement every now and then by holding the window frame piece over it. Once I had everything in place I adhered the back panel to the card base and then adhered the front panel to that.
To finish it off I stamped the sentiment onto a white strip of paper and fishtailed the ends, then colored it in, popped it up with some fun foam and adhered it to the center of the card.
My second card is also a 5 1/2 inch square but I made a little differently, I used an SVG file and card out the card base and curtain, then I adhered a piece of acetate to the window frame, I ran the curtain through my Big Kick using the Carta Bella embossing folder “Ogee” to give it some dimension, and then adhered it to the window panel.
I glued a panel that I made by using a technique with Copic markers and rubbing alcohol, glued all the images down and then decided I didn’t like it. So I cut the front panel off and the back of the card with the panel down to about 5 1/4 inches and adhered both to the front of a 5 1/2 inch square card base.
Then I decided I didn’t like the white window frame so I colored it with Copic markers. To finish it off I stamped the sentiment onto a white strip of paper and fishtailed the ends, then colored it in, popped it up with some fun foam and adhered it to the center of the card.
Hello Everyone! Christine from Pattercrafts here to share 2 Simple Cards for the busy card creator! I don’t know about you, but this fall is jam packed with so many fun fall activities, plus fall sports with the children and holiday prep! Even though I feel I don’t have a lot of crafty time, I still want to create!
For the panel with the tree, I trimmed down some white cardstock and used Dried Marigold distress ink before adding the sticker. I put the pumpkin sticker on some black cardstock and trimmed a small border so it pops up from the background. This sticker sheet also has the pile of leaves and a rake sticker and I added those to the inside.
For the second card I used another piece of paper from the “Fall Break” paper pad by Carta Bella, a sentiment from the Teresa Talks Fall Stamp Set and stickers from the Autumn Pumpkins Sticko Sticker Set! I die cut the pattern paper with a rectangle die and a piece of white cardstock with a smaller rectangle die. I then stamped the “Happy Fall Y’all” sentiment in the center and added stickers all around. I finished the inside of the card with more stickers!
Thank You So Much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy and get inspired – even though life gets busy, you can always spare a few minutes to do something you love!
Hi! Can you believe Christmas is a mere 3 months away!? Crazy, right! I used some mint and gold patterned papers from my stash and the Avery Elle Christmas Magic stamp set to create a super cute Christmas card!
This card is super easy to recreate! I started by stamping the lamp, holly, snowman, and unicorn from the Avery Elle Christmas Magic stamp set and colored them with my Copic markers. I trimmed them out with scissors leaving a small white border.
I needed a perfect background for my images, so I grabbed some mint patterned papers from my stash and cut them with Pink & Main Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped a sentiment and snowflakes with black ink onto the heart patterned paper.
I added my cute images with foam squares and that finishes my card! Thanks for stopping by!
Kim here today with a quick card and an image that does all the heavy lifting for you! I used the Fall Arrangement stamp from Stampendous and created a card a bit smaller than a typical A2 size. When I added the card to my card front there was some empty space left at the top that I wasn’t crazy about so I decided to make the card itself smaller.
I really love this arrangement the flowers and the pumpkin are just so pretty that once I added the sentiment I didn’t feel it needed anything else and couldn’t believe how quickly this card came together for me. I am also toying with the idea of coloring this same image on Kraft cardstock, I think that will be really pretty as well.
This entry is short and simple but also was the making of this card and sometimes that is exactly what we need, just a few minutes to push the world away and make something pretty! I hope you get the chance to make something or do something that you enjoy today. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great rest of your weekend!
Teresa here today to share a very simple card but so cute to send to someone that needs to be reassured you love them. This card will be winging its way today to my daughter in Oregon, she needs a little extra love right now.
