Light of Faith

Hello! I have two quick and easy, pretty Christmas card to share today!

For these cards, I used a new release stamp set #SS142 Light of Faith, Set of 4.  For each card, the sentiments were stamped onto white cardstock with pink ink, matted with gray, then pink, and trimmed out in silver. The gray card base was created by using pink ink and an Ink Blending Brush, and the Dancing Sprigs Stencil. The focal panel was then popped up with dimensional foam. Aren't these pretty? Took about 10 minutes per card. Seriously!




These sentiments are gorgeous! They would be a wonderful addition to your Christmas sentiment stamps!

The cards were super easy! Give it a try!

So glad you stopped by today!

No Tricks, Just Treats


Hi there, crafty friends!

 It's time for a new challenge at The House that Stamps Built! Our challenge for this week is 'No Tricks, Just Treats'. We want to see your Trick or Treat style cards and hopefully some fun treat holders!!!

Here's what I made - It's a treat box (haven't bought Halloween treats yet, so it's an empty box, so far):



These ready-made boxes from Stampin' Up made this one a breeze! A bit of patterned paper, and some stamping, paper piecing, and fussy cutting, and voila!!!

I used these Repeat Impressions' stamps:


Let's see your projects! Remember, you don't HAVE to use Repeat Impressions Stamps, but if you do, you have double the chance of winning!

Vintage Ornaments

Hello there!
I have a pretty Christmas card to share today!


For this card, I used a new release stamp, #SD1121 Vintage Ornaments. The image was stamped with Versamark Ink, and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The panel was cut down, matted on the sides with a brushed silver cardstock, and set aside. I folded my card base, and stenciled #STE001 Jingle Bells, with Versamark Ink, giving a shadow stamping effect. The focal panel was then popped up with dimensional foam to the right of the card front.


Super easy! Give it a try!

So glad you stopped by today!

Peppermint Mice

Hi everyone!

I'm back today with another fun Christmas card !

Remember, we send out over 180 cards each year, so I am always looking for some fun, easy cards that can be easily mass produced.

This adorable image, Peppermint Mice, from Jan's Digi Stamps, comes in either a black and white, or a pre-printed format. Once again, I was looking for fast and easy, so I chose the pre-colored image, matted it on pink, and then on a white card base

Aren't they darling?? I wish you could see the tiny embellishing that I did with Glossy Accents & Wink of Stella! So cute!


I'm off to create...!

Thanks so much for stopping by today,

Poinsettia Wreath Wishes

Hello Friends!

I'm up on the Technique Junkies blog to share two pretty cards, using beautiful new stamps from Technique Junkies.

The #SS143 Poinsettia Wreath Wishes is one of my favorites from this release. The set includes the wreath stamp, and 6 sentiments: Wishing you Holiday Joy, Christmas Joy, Peace on Earth, Joyful Wishes, Warm Holiday Wishes, and Season of Love. I thought it might be fun to create a couple of different looks with this set.

For my first card, I used an Ink Blending Brush, and some Distress Oxide Inks to 'antique' the background a bit. The image and sentiment were then stamped in brown ink, and colored with Copic markers. Next I took the Shining Star Stencil, and made up a glitter paste to spread over the stencil, being sure to go just to the edge of the image. The flowers and leaves were covered in Glossy Accents and set aside to dry. The focal panel was adhered to a burgandy card base. Last, I added a few dots of gold Stickles for some additional shine. I'm pleased with the way it turned out!


The second card was fun, veering away from traditional Christmas colors to a pretty pink and mint green. Again, the image and sentiment were stamped with brown ink, but this time the coloring was done with colored pencils. I squeezed on some Diamond Stickles over the entire image for a 'snowy' look, added a few dots of Gold Stickles, and went to work on the background. Using a straight edge, I drew diagonal lines with the pink pencil, and began coloring in the stripes with pink and mint green pencils. The focal panel was adhered to a pink card base. This one made me smile!


I'm such a Christmas Junkie - am loving this release!

So glad you stopped by today!
