A Gnome with Flowers and a Tissue Box!

You can make those gnomes for any type of card!

For the one, I stamped the tissue box and flowers with Memento ink, then fussy cut and colored with blends.

For the gnome, I die cut his hat with So Saffron, his hand and nose with Petal Pink, his shirt and pants with Mint Macaroon, and his beard with the Snowy White velvet sheets. Those sheets are retiring and they are on sale!

I colored the beard with the Gray Granite blends. It’s so nice to have a fuzzy beard!

I die cut a piece of Sahara Sand (the size was 1-1/2″ x 5-3/8″) with the Basic Borders dies.

The background is Shaded Spruce embossed with the Gingham folder.

Santa Delivering a Gift Card!


Santa and his train are retiring! This stamp set and dies are so cute, I’ve made so many cards with it.

I made this card like the two others I’ve shown you- it folds twice and holds a gift card! Here’s my video on how I make them:



I used the oval die from the Mini Pocket dies for my “Ho ho ho”.

Have a Sweet Christmas! Sweet Gingerbread is retiring! And will be on sale tomorrow!

Sweet Gingerbread is one of my favorites in the mini catalog. It is so whimsical and cute! The dies are the best- the “hill” die I have used on so many cards. The dies will be 40% OFF starting tomorrow!! The original price is $33, now it will be $19.80! Huge deal!

I made this card about 2 weeks ago. I planned to do a video on how I made the circle on the background. Then it was Thanksgiving. Everyone eats at my house. Then, the day after Thanksgiving? I’m sure a lot of you do this too- It’s time to get the Christmas stuff out! I finally finished my job today. I decorate three trees and put all the other stuff we have on display. So glad to be done! Just need my husband get the outside lights done! So, I’ll make the video soon!

I stamped the house with Versamark on Sahara Sand paper. I embossed with white embossing powder. The door, windows, hearts and sentiment are with Sweet Sorbet. The trees and the wreath were with Soft Sea Foam. I used the Sweet Sorbet Blends to make the berries on the wreath pop.

Here’s everything I used: (I listed the bundle and the stamps and dies separately. With this sale, you don’t want to order the bundle!)

A Penguin Shaker Card- for a Birthday!

The cute Penguin Place stamp set and matching punch can be used for lots of cards. Don’t forget! They are both retiring!

I made this card like I did the Moose shaker card; I did it during a class when they were making the Candy Cane shaker card. I already had two of the candy cane, so I came up with a few cards that were different that I would show during the classes. For using the Clear Envelopes, I like to show everyone step by step during the class.

Here’s my video of the Big Shaker Card:

Another Card that Holds a Gift Card!

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

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.
