Even though they are very simple cards using stickers I think they came out very nice.
For a bonus project I wanted to make a couple of gift card holders using up some of the paper scraps. I recently watched Angie Juda’s YouTube tutorial showing this idea. Click on the link to her information HERE.
Tell me in the comments below what is your favorite kind of Christmas sweet?

Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a couple of Christmas cards using the wonderful Great Joy stamp set by Pinkfresh Studio. I love a great wreath stamp and this one is just too cute!
I knew that I wanted to use Kraft card stock with white embossing, but I couldn’t decide if I should color the images in the wreath or not. So, I made two cards!! Let me know in the comments which one you like better. I like both… there’s something about that clean pop of white and then there’s also something about those sweet colored images. I really can’t pick!
I stamped the wreath on the Kraft card stock using my Stamp Platform so that I could easily make two cards. I stamped them with VersaMark watermark ink and then heat embossed them with a fine white embossing powder. I then stamped the bow using a red ink and then I stamped it again with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine clear embossing powder. That gives it that pretty shine, but also gives it that touch of color that I wanted. I colored a few of the images in one of the wreaths with a few Prismacolor Pencils. I fussy cut the wreaths and blended on some Forest Moss Distress Oxide inks around the inner and outer edges. I set the wreaths aside to start on the card bases.
I chose the beautiful Christmas Wishes papers by Amy Design to pair up with these cards. I die cut two pieces of the pretty plaid paper with a large stitched rectangle die and adhered them to kraft card bases. I then trimmed two pieces of kraft card stock down to 4-1/4 x 2″. I stamped the sentiments using the Stamp Platform again so that I could stamp with the red ink and then the VersaMark watermark ink. I heat embossed the fine clear embossing powder again to make the sentiments shine.
I then adhered the wide sentiment strips to the card and popped up the wreaths with foam tape. To finish off the cards, I added a few red enamel dots. I just love the touches of red with kraft and white! So… which card do you like better? Leave a comment with your thoughts… I’d love to hear!
Hello everyone, it’s Stacy here from CraftaholicMomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a sweet card featuring the Hero Arts stamp set called Home for the Holidays.
I hand cut some snowdrifts with my scissors and attached them flat and layered onto my card base that was inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. I ran a bead of Nuvo Glitter drops in White Blizzard along the edges to give them some interest and sparkle.
I stamped the images on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock in Momento Tuxedo Black in and colored them in with Copic Markers. After that I fussy cut the images and adhered them to my card with adhesive foam.
Adding a little bit more White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops finishes off the card nicely.
I hope you enjoyed my card and it inspires you to make some winter cards.
Hello! It’s time for my monthly Scrapping for LessFlavor of the Month five cards one kit video! Because of product issues this video is a bit late this month, so I tried to make up for it by creating some extra cards with the kit this month! Instead of my usual five cards I’m sharing EIGHT!
Fall is one of my favorite seasons – it comes in close behind winter – and the products in this kit were so inspiring that I couldn’t help but to create more and give you extra inspiration!
The papers in the first collection are ADORABLE! The pumpkin patch patterned paper is my FAVORITE! I created an easy framed scene with the cute kid cardstock pieces and a simple shaker card with the stamp set!
Sweater weather is the name of the game for the second collection! I used some of the stickers and patterned papers to create a simple banner card and I used repeat stamping to create an almost one layer stamped card.
Okay. Let’s be honest. THESE CARDS ARE MY FAVORITE!!! They scream fall and cool and comfy sweater weather! I die cut some of the patterned paper and pieced them onto ink blended backgrounds! So easy but really packs a punch!
The little moose in the fourth collection is the most adorable thing in the world! I sure wish we had moose where I live! I paired him with a die cut sentiment included in the Banana Split level kit!
To finish off the kit I used the stamp set in the Banana Split kit to create another almost one layer card! Watch the video at the beginning of this post to see how easy it was to create those clouds! And let me know in the comments which card is your favorite! See you soon!
Hi Everyone! Luci here with a few cards using the Picket Fence Studios “String of Lights” stamp set.
I love how simple yet lovely these cards were!
To start I picked out A2 size card bases from my stash, cut down white cardstock panels to 4 X 5 1/4 inches. Then I stamped the images and sentiment together using my Mini Misti and Brutus Monroe embossing ink. I picked red, silver, gold, and green embossing powders and heat embossed them. I adhered the card panels to the card bases. Then I simply added some embellishments for one I used sequins from an old SFL FOTM card kit and the rest I used Nuvo Crystal Nuvo Drops, the colors I used were Autumn Red and Silver Lining. Easy Peasy right!
Hi Everyone, it’s Stacy from CraftaholicMomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with this adorable set of projects using the Fall Foliage mini collection in the newly released September Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
I made a greeting card and matching gift tag. Plus I made a magnetic calendar for my fridge.
There are still a handful of kits left, but you’ll need to hurry if you want one as they are expected to sell out very quickly.
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.
