Santa by a Forest!

Another Christmas card with the Stargazing DSP! I love that stuff!

The Santa is from the Traditions of St. Nick DSP, which of right now, is still available.

I stamped the Forest Forever trees with Mossy Meadow ink on Mossy Meadow paper. Die cut.

I die cut a hill with the Basic Borders dies.

I stamped the sentiment (it has a “with” before Joy, Peace & Love, but I didn’t want that so I just inked up the words I wanted) with Mossy Meadow on Basic White. I just hand cut it into a rectangle.

I added Festive Pearls on the trees.

Here’s the measurements:

Basic White 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″

Mossy Meadow 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″

Stargazing DSp 4″ x 5-1/4″

Mossy Meadow 4″ x 2″ (for the hill)

Scraps of Basic White

I have 4 more cards using Saint Nicholas- but I won’t share them anywhere! It’s a PDF that has pictures, measurements, all products used, and step by step instructions. You can see it here!

Nativity with a Star


I absolutely love the Night Divine dies. This card was pretty easy- did a few “extra” things.

Here’s the measurements first:

Basic White 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″

Misty Moonlight 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″

O Holy Night DSP 4″ x 5-1/4″

Gold Foil 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″

O Holy Night DSP- the one with the hills. I fussy cut one and trimmed it to 4″ wide.

I die cut the manger with Crumb Cake. I placed it on the DSP, not gluing, and traced the top of it with a pencil. Taking the star die (with dots/holes all around it) from Stars at Night, I die cut from the DSP using the trace. I wanted it so the dots/holes would show all around the top of the manger.

I die cut the star again with Basic White. Set aside.

I glued the manger to the DSP. There will be an empty star behind it, but it will be fixed later.

I die cut the nativity scene with Basic White.

I stamped the sentiment with Misty Moonlight on Basic White. Die cut with Nested Essentials dies.

Using a sponge and the Gold Enamel Effects, I went over the sentiment, the nativity scene, and the Basic White star very lightly. Let dry.

I glued the star on the space where I die cut the star on the DSP. Since the manger is already glued, the star will be on top of it.

Take the piece of Gold Foil, I glue behind the DSP so that the holes would have the gold foil behind them.

Pretty easy card that has such a beautiful scene.

Don’t forget- I have a PDF Tutorial that has 4 cards from the O Holy Night/Night Divine/Stars at Night that I won’t share anywhere else. You can see it here!

A Very Shiny Merriest Tree!

This may be one of my favorite cards of all time! I had to take a picture on my pool deck- it is hard to get a good photo of a card with shiny paper!

I have SO many cards to post- and most of them have retiring stuff on them! November is a bit crazy for my family. And, the mini catalog lasted a lot shorter than years before. Not a fan, but that’s what happens!

This card was easy- I die cut the biggest tree from the Merriest Trees dies with the Granny Apple Green foil sheet. I then embossed it with the Distressed Tile 3D folder. I put Dimensionals all over it.

The Distressed Gold paper (5-1/4″ x 4″) was die cut with the Tiny Christmas Trees Dies. I added the Granny Apple Green foil sheet behind it (the same size).

The tree stand (part of the Merriest Trees dies) was die cut with Basic White. I put Wink of Stella all over it.

The sentiment is from the Rocking Horse stamp set. I stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Die cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.

Tie a bow and you’re done!

On this card, the retiring products are:

Rocking Horse stamp set

Tiny Christmas Trees Dies

Melon Mambo & Granny Apple Green Foil Sheets

White Iridescent Ribbon

I have a PDF Tutorial for 4 cards I will never show anywhere using the Merriest Trees stamps and dies! You can see it here! It includes a shaker card!

Santa with some Very Shiny Paper! A Card and a Framed Project!

This card was so easy but so fun and so beautiful when I was done! Gotta love Specialty Designer Series Paper!

I used the Snowflake Magic DSP for the background, and the hills. I used the Silver Foil for the trees, and the Traditions of St. Nick for the Santa (using the Saint Nicholas dies). This card is mostly paper!

The sentiment is from the Saint Nicholas stamp set. I stamped with Lost Lagoon on Basic White and then die cut with the Stylish Shapes. Card done!
