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!)

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.

Three Dancing Witches!

Who doesn’t love dancing witches?

If you saw my dancing gnomes cards, the witches are made to dance the same way- with the Candy Cane die. Since their legs have a space between them, you have to cut the die cut a little more than you do with the gnomes. Here’s some pictures to show you:

Here’s the video of making the gnomes dance, remember to make the witch dance, just cut a few more pieces off.

 

 

I stamped the hats and punched them with the matching punch from the Bewitching bundle.

For the tree limbs on the upper corners, those are dies from the Scary Silhouettes dies.

For the sentiment, I used Best Witches and I colored it with Write Markers: Pumpkin Pie, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green and Basic Black. I die cut it with a die from Scary Silhouettes.

These dancing cards are so fun!

Glimmer Ornaments! LOTS of Glimmer!

OK, taking pictures of sparkly cards is hard. I think I’ve taken about 25 of them, so this was the best one. But it still doesn’t show how glittery it is. ugh.

If you saw my Yeti card using the Picture This dies, I wanted to use the part I didn’t use for that card. Lots of glimmer! Here’s the Yeti card:

Is It Christmas, Yeti?

I put the negative piece, from the Yeti card, on Basic White. I then die cut two of the Stitched Rectangles dies to make a frame using Tahitian Tide paper. I then used the Picture This die on scrap glimmer paper- just putting enough paper under the different circles. I used the Spruced Up Outlines dies with the White glimmer (from the mini) for the tops of the ornaments.

I added a few more ornaments on the card- ones that didn’t fit inside one of the empty circles.

I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Scottie on white with Tahitian Tide ink. I die cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.

The ribbon on the side is the really pretty Metallic Woven Ribbon in the main catalog.

How to Make Those Gnomes DANCE! Video!

 

Who doesn’t love to see gnomes dancing??

 

I saw that SU had shared this technique at a recent event. What a great idea! I’ve used it on two different cards, this one and a witch one that I’ll share in a few days. It is really so easy and fun!

Here’s my video of making this card:

Perfect Partners: Pig on a Hill in a Bike!

 

I wanted to make my pig ride by on hill with water nearby. So, here’s what I came up with! 😂

I used lots of dies on this card. Obviously the Birthday Piggy dies (only 10 days left to get it!). I also used the Waterfall Canyon dies (again, only 10 more days) for the grass, the Basic Borders for the water, and the Gingerbread House for the hills.

I first used my Blending Brushes with Balmy Blue for the sky and Bermuda Bay for the water.

I added the Embossing paste on the water like I’ve done in many cards, but I also used the Paste for clouds. What I did was die cut two clouds from the Waves Dies, then used that a stencil with the Paste. ⬇️

 

These pigs are so dang cute! Here’s the video on how I make the ocean:

Perfect Partners: Apples for a Friend

I wanted to make a fancy card with the apples. I colored them with Daffodil, trying to make them look like yellow apples, but they kinda look like lemons! Either way works for a friend card.

 

The Fabulous Frames dies are one of my favorites. I’ve used it on many cards. For this one, I used it with the Glimmer paper that’s in the mini catalog. The paper is so pretty- three colors: Vanilla, Evening Evergreen and Gold. You could make some really fancy cards with this!

After I colored the apples and leaves, I put Wink of Stella on all them. A very sparkly card!

Snowy Scene thru a Window

 

We made this card at one of my classes. It’s so pretty and doesn’t take long!

 

When you die cut the window from window wishes, the inside piece comes out and you can use that for the window, or for something else. I first did a light Balmy Blue background, then stamped the trees (also from Window Wishes) with Early Espresso and Garden Green. I then added some snow with the puff paint.

I wanted to make the window look like it was inside a house looking out. The pretty Petal Pink DSP is from the host DSP Design a Daydream. If you place an order over $150, I suggest getting that paper. You can use it for lots of cards!

On the bottom, I had a piece of Basic White that was 4 x 1.5. I scored every 1/4″ using the Simply Scored. It makes it look like beadboard! I then placed a very small piece (4 x 1/4) of white on top.

For the sentiment, I used the Christmas Banners. You can stamp the sentiment and the banner before die cutting, but Ii did it different. First, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with white powder. I then die cut it. Then, using Petal Pink ink, I stamped the banner. It’s hard to get it on there perfectly, but I liked the way it looked.
