Sending Happy Thoughts

There are so many reasons I love card making. I get to use amazing coordinating products in an array of fabulous colors and themes too numerous to name or count. I get to belong to a community of creative people who understand my love for stamping and paper crafting and inspire me to keep on stamping and creating. I get to express myself creatively and add my own personal touch to my correspondences. I get to inspire and teach others to enjoy stamping and paper crafting like I do. Best of all, card making keeps me spreading love, kindness, and happy thoughts in challenging times by sending the hand stamped cards I've made.

I made this beautiful set of cards to let friends and family they are thought of and loved. They feature the Hydrangea Hill Suite and Happy Thoughts Stamp Set - 2 of my favorite new products in the new January - June Mini Catalog. I hope you love these cards as much as I do. If so, you can download the Free Project Sheet I created for you.

Emboss Resist Technique with Snowflake Wishes

If you love stamping techniques, especially Heat Embossing, I think you're going to enjoy using the Emboss Resist Technique. This is a simple technique that makes a big impact. In the Facebook Live Video Replay below I demonstrate this fun technique and show you how to use Blender Brushes. I love this new set of tools. The Blender Brushes are available to order beginning January 5th with our new January-June Mini Catalog. They are sold as a set of 3 for $12.00 and are definitely worth the investment. You get a much softer look using Blending Brushes rather than Stampin' Sponges or Sponge Daubers.

 Here's a close up of the Blending Brushes that will be available for purchase beginning January 5, 2021, in our January-June Mini Catalog. They are sooooo easy to use and give a beautiful, soft affect. After using them for these cards, I simply rinsed my Blending Brushes in cold water, soaked up excess water with paper towel, then let air dry. As you can see there is some staining which does not affect future use.

Below are more cards I made with the the Emboss Resist Technique. My next two cards feature Fine Art Gallery Stamp Set (also available starting January 5, 2021) with White Heat Embossing.

Elegant Christmas Wreath Card

This week, I enjoyed creating with the Arrange A Wreath Stamp Set. The following is a video replay of my November 11th Facebook Live in which a started with an elegant wreath card I made. I then showed my viewers how to create two different cards (both of them fun folds) using the same paper crafting supplies and cutting dimensions. I love how all three cards turned out. One is just as elegant as the next. Very Vanilla, Metallic Gold, and Real Red is one of my favorite color combinations for a very classic style of Christmas card. I hope you enjoy my video demonstration and feel inspired to create with the Arrange A Wreath Stamp Set.

The same paper crafting supplies and many of the same cutting dimensions were used to make 3 different card layouts. 2 of them are fun fold cards! Be sure to watch my video above to see the differences in these 3 classy and elegant holiday cards.

So many gorgeous details and beautiful textures in this simple yet elegant card.

Embossing Makes Cards Extraordinary!

Embossing takes your handmade cards to an extraordinary level. Whether you emboss with embossing folders or embossing powders & heat tool, your cards are sure to impress. You can do both of these techniques on all sorts of papers including card stock, vellum, and foil paper. In the video demonstration below, I'll show you "dry" embossing with the Evergreen Forest 3-D Embossing Folder and "heat" embossing with Gold Embossing Powder and Heat Tool. Both of these techniques will help you create extraordinary cards.
