Another Card that Holds a Gift Card!

This was my original card using the 2 fold process. You saw it in my video.

This card is so simple but I love it so much. The bow on the candy canes is from the Mini Pocket dies.

Here’s my video on how to make the 2 fold card:

A Big Shaker Card- from a Moose Friend!

I love the All Bundled Up stamp set. That moose is the cutest! I wanted to come up with another “faker shaker” card, because my next class had the candy cane shaker card. Since I had already made two of those cards, I wanted something a little different. When the class was making the card, I wanted to show how to use the envelope to make the shaker step by step.

Here’s my video on the Faker Shaker cards:

I stamped the moose and bird with memento and colored them with Blends. I then used Balmy Blue and Sahara Sand ink with Blending Brushes for the background. Yes, those colors will go over the colored moose and bird, but not too much.

The sentiment is from the Bundled Up, I die cut it with one of the dies from the Harvest dies.

How about a BIG Card with BIG Candy Canes!

I had some candy canes I had die cut from the Sweetest Christmas DSP, and some foam adhesive dies of the candy cane. I decided to make a big card and have the candy canes really stand out!

This is called a slimline card. The card base is 3-1/2 x 8-1/2. The top layer is 3-3/8 x 8-3/8. This will fit inside a Slimline Envelope.

I first colored with Pool Party ink and a Blending Brush.

I then added the foam candy canes.

For the sentiment, I colored the stamp with Real Red and Garden Green write markers. I die cut it with Stitched Rectangles.

I stamped the mistletoe with Garden Green and die cut.

Final step! I added a few Seasonal Sequins.

My Heart is Filled with Gratitude


Everybody knows someone who deserves a card like this.

The Gathered Wheat bundle in the mini is retiring. I hadn’t used it until last week. It is really so pretty and the sentiments on it are beautiful.

This card took me about 5 minutes.

I stamped the wheat and the sentiment with Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla paper. Die cut the sentiment with Stitched Rectangles. Wheat with the coordinating dies.

The Leaf Fall embossing folder is so pretty and it is NOT retiring!

May your Day be Furry & Bright!

I absolutely love the Christmas Scottie bundle. My dog is a Schnoodle- half Schnauzer, half Poodle. When I stamped the dog with black, it looks like her!

I used the window dies to make a door- I have a video on how I did that here:



So… the Scottie and the Window are retiring! 😢

The Wreath on this card and the card in the video is from the Cottage Wreath- it is NOT retiring. But, the bundle is. So if you want the stamps and dies, you can only get the 10% off through December.

Lots of embossing here. I stamped the berries on the wreath, the bow on the dog and the sentiment with Versamark and used Gold embossing powder.

How about a card that holds a gift card? And is really pretty?

I made this card during this video, and it may be one of my all-time favorites. You’ll see the original card during the video. I made that one a few weeks ago. I planned to do the video next week, but the most important thing about this card is the die that holds the gift card. That sucker is on sale until tomorrow for 20% off!

I’ll share the other cards I showed during the video in the days ahead.

Here’s the instructions for the measurements of this card (you can also find it and others under “instructions” on the right (from a computer) or the bottom (from a phone):

Thankful Card with Hello Harvest and Gathered Wheat

I decided I needed to make some thankful cards, since Thanksgiving is almost here. I thought of having pumpkins with some stalks of wheat behind them.

When I saw Gathered Wheat, I knew I had to get it. My husband is from Kansas and he grew up on a wheat farm. His dad was a farmer, and my husband did a lot of farming too.

I colored the pumpkins using Pumpkin Pie ink on watercolor paper. You stamp, then use a Water Painter to spread the ink. I have a video showing that:



I did the same things with the wheat; I used Crumb Cake.

The background was made with Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow with the Blending Brushes.

The sentiment is from the Gathered Wheat stamp set. I cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.
