Silent Night
Delayed Post For my grandparents, I wanted to create a more religiously-themed card. Stefanie got a steal-of-a-deal on these kraft cards from Michaels and gave me one to experiment with. I die cut masks and then sprayed the card with Mister Huey's Opaque Wh...

Happy Holidays
This card was a fixer-upper from several years ago. I removed the main embellishment and added a new one. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out! I'm a sucker for vintage! {Supplies--all Papertrey Ink unless noted} Cardstock: Classic Kraft, Vintage Cream ...

Warm Winter Wishes
This card has a similar theme to this one . A scrap of patterned paper used to create a CAS "masterpiece." I sewed around the paper scrap to add some homey detail and used dimensional adhesive when applying it to the card base. {Supplies--all Papertrey Ink ...

I love CAS cards so Christmas card #3 is one of my favorites: I got the strip of patterned paper from Stefanie's scraps. I just love birch trees! The bird stamps are from the In the Meadow stamp set from PTI, and the sentiment is from Stocking Prints (also ...

After many years apart (papercrafting-wise), my friend (and former blog contributor), Stefanie, and I got together yesterday evening to make Christmas cards! As usual, Stefanie produced an astonishing number of cards in comparison to my paltry few (15 to 4,...

Oh Baby
A baby card for a friend to give to her teacher: My camera was acting up this morning... :( I used a Distress Paint dabber for the first time. I used a stencil and there was quite a bit of bleeding. I don't mind the effect, but it wasn't what I was going fo...

This was my final completed Christmas card. I have multiple elements that could make up 2 or 3 more cards - will have to see if I get around to it before next Christmas.  ;) I used the cut outs from this card for the sentiment on the layered tag. I sewed a ...

Very Merry
I'm particularly pleased with how this card turned out. The wooden snowflake embellishment was given to me by Stefanie. I sprayed it with a bit of her white Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray (not very evident - I had difficulty with application for some reason)...

Christmas Lights
Christmas card #4 started out funky - I created the Christmas light borders.  I wasn't sure where to go from there and am not entirely sure I like the result. I heat embossed a sentiment and then masked the borders before spraying the card with Silver Glimm...

The second Christmas card I made a few days ago uses PTI's recent String Frames die in order to create a border for the sentiment (letters from Paper Smooches Alphawhimsy die). Stef and I got together again last night to make even more cards! She has made 2...

My mother posted another of the cards I created at our all-day crop this past June. I have to say that this is probably my favorite one. I loved the three-step wreath, as well as the fonts on the sentiment. The interior: Thanks for peeking!

Friends Never Go Out of Style
This card base has been kicking around forever, waiting for me to finish it. I pulled it out to create a belated birthday card for a friend. I tried doing a pinch of silver and Kaleidoscope embossing powders. At this point, I had a tool malfunction: my Goos...
