Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde sharing with you what just may be one of the most elegant Christmas cards I have made this year! Now I love heat embossing and the SFL “Ornamental Christmas” stamp set perfectly lends itself to be heat embossed. Once I got the ornament and the sentiment embossed onto the card I pierced the paper inside the bulb’s hook and strung some gold thread through it. Layered the card with gold glitter paper then the last touch was adding glitter gold Nuvo drops in random dots around the card.
I am so happy with how this card turned out! It’s sparkly and elegant, I am so looking forward to giving this card away! Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today. I hope you are getting into the Holiday Spirit we could all use a little more happy this year! Tis’ the Season!!!
I am so grateful that you have stopped by today. Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde sharing a little more inspiration from November’s Flavor of the Month card kit.
I adore this image and the paper included in this collection! At this point this collection has produced two cards and there is enough material left over to produce probably three more. (I liked to use at least three patterns typically so I tend to go through paper quickly.)
Happiness truly is a warm puppy! We added a new addition to our family about 8 weeks ago and she has made us incredibly happy. Our cat has also warmed up to her too. 🙂
Thank you so much for being such a supportive group of crafters, it is always so nice to be able to share a craft you love with others who love it as well. One of my favorite things, especially with cardmaking with the kit, is that we all start with the same ingredients but create such different yet lovely things.
I hope you take some time for yourself and get to create something that will bring you joy.
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde bringing you a card made using one of the cutest encouraging stamp sets I’ve ever used! “Balloon Ride” from Paperie Ink has several critters to choose from and enough hot air balloons to do a little balloon like I did or to do an entire scene.
Here’s how this card came together:

I really enjoyed using this stamp set, I always know I have my hands on a good stamp set when as I am working with it for one card I already begin thinking of what I want to do with it for my next card.
Thank you for joining me today on the blog and taking a closer look at Paperie Ink’s “Balloon Ride.” I hope you get any encouragement you may be needing today and also take a minute to encourage another.
Kim here from @CardmakingBlonde. Today I am sharing a scene card that was made using SFL’s “Winter Fairies” stamp set AND “Fairy House” stamp set. For this card I started by stamping the string lights then decided what other elements worked best and the scene pretty much built itself. You may notice that beside the house is only one tree and that was intentional because space was certainly needed between the tree and the fairy.
The sky in the background is a blend of Copic Markers. Since the string lights were “on” I really wanted a dusk or early evening sky which also turned out to be a wintry sky as well so that was a nice unexpected bonus. If you look closely the paper trimming the scene is from SFL’s “Winter in Pink” paper pad. The fairy is colored in delicate pinks to go with that paper and it wasn’t until I went to adhere it all that I realized my scene just didn’t leave much space for the patterned paper but the snowflakes made a nice mat for it.
Thanks so much for stopping in today, I hope you are inspired to get crafty!
