We’re very near Christmas, so I wanted to share some Quick Holiday Cards. Several of the cards feature stamps from the beautiful Heartfelt Creations “Season of Joy” collection, and most use a background stamp.
Background stamps and other large stamps used to make me “cringe” because I often had trouble getting the stamp to work consistently and give a nice clear image. I’ve learned two methods that help with background stamps (or other large stamps), and I want to share those with you today. The first method is to use a “Mega Mount” acrylic block by Impression Obsession. This is a large clear

Today I want to say “Thank You Veterans!” I am so very grateful to each hero and their families for their service and sacrifice for our Country.
This scrapbook page honors my favorite Veteran, my brother-in-law, Tom. The pictures of him were taken as he returned from an Honor Flight earlier this year.
The close-up photos below may be easier to see –
The dimensional stars on the page were made with the “Star” folding die by Nellie Snellen. I just love these stars! I made the stars by cutting two strips using the die. These are folded and attached together to

Today I want to share some ideas for holiday cards featuring the Spellbinders Build A Wreath dies. I love the detail and the versatility of this die set. It is so easy to create beautiful holiday wreaths that can be decorated in many different ways.
To begin, I selected several different types of green cardstock. I thought that the Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock would be interesting distressed and sanded on a kraft paper background. I also wanted to try a wreath where ink was applied to add detail and contrast. For each of these cardstocks, I cut one base

The wintery white season is fast approaching and it will soon be time for snowflakes and snowmen. Today I have a fun Snowman card for you to make. Using Penny Black‘s Build a Snowman stamp set I’ve created a couple of cards to inspire you to give it a try! This is such a fun set of stamps, you can change up his hat, scarf or even his nose. I’ll walk you through what I did to make mine sparkle and glow in my video.
I’ll show you how to create the textured body of the snowman and the mulit-colored backgrounds.

For today’s project, I made some quick Halloween tags. As you know, Halloween is almost here . . . and it’s time to finalize the last-minute details for a night of costumes, trick-or-treating, and lots of fun. There are just so many cute stickers available, and I thought it would be fun to put them together to make tags to attach to the “treats” for my favorite trick-or-treaters.
Pre-made tags are convenient, but they don’t always come in the right color or size to meet your needs. Fortunately, you can easily make tags. A tag can be any shape or size

Using simple folds you can create a card with lots of interest for the recipient. Start with a card base of 5 1/2″x12″. Score it at 1 3/8″ – 2 3/4″ – 5 1/4″ – 7 3/4″. Crease your score lines creating mountain and valley folds.
I fussy cut a Reindeer from the Bo Bunny Silver & Gold Collection to become the focal point of the first fold of my card. By lining the left edge with the edge of the card and extending the right side over the fold you’ll have a card that pops out at you from the

Today I want to share a really fun project – quick and easy Halloween treat holders. They are sure to be a hit with your favorite trick-or treaters.
I began by selecting some of my favorite circle and oval dies, as well as a some solid and patterned papers. The dies I selected were Spellbinders petite scalloped circles, scalloped circles, picot-edged circles and pumpkin circles. I also selected a set of My Favorite Things oval dies to make the taller pumpkins.
My first two pumpkins were made using Dried Marigold from the Tim Holtz Distress Core’dinations paper stack. I cut two shapes each from

How often have you done a monochromatic card similar to my White on White Reindeer Holiday Cards? I always seem to shy away from them and yet I love the elegant look they produce. When Cut@Home sent me the Spellbinders Reindeer Magic M-Bossibilities Embossing folder I knew right away I wanted to do a White on White card. I think I surprised myself at how easily they came together and how I loved the end result.
I ran a mat the size of my card front through the Cuttlebug first with Spellbinders Reindeer Magic M-Bossibilites folder to get a nice

What can I say? I’m in love with Heartfelt Creations! This was a new company to me and I must say I am so impressed. The stamps in the Gateway to the Seasons Collection are gorgeous! They stamp so clean and crisp enabling you to do a multitude of coloring and cutting or to simply emboss. I’m going to share each way with you.
My first card I cut the aperture with Spellbinders Superellipse die. I decided to color the stamped image with my Copics, now keep in mind, I am NOT a Copic color expert, I’m more the colorbook kinda

Hi everyone, I’m here today to share a fun ‘Wicked’ Birthday card for you from the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells collection, fast becoming one of my favorites! I love the fantastic images and wanted to give you an idea to use anytime throughout the year. I cut the Steampunk lady on the bike from the 8×8 paper pad and the designer and solid papers from the patterns and solids 6×6 pad.
Card Prep: You’ll want to cut a card base from black cardstock, I used the Black Cat from Core’dinations, 5 1/2″ x 11″, score in half to form a square

I love making things to give away and this mini petal Easter basket is a quick and easy little gift for co-workers, friends and family members! My kids are all grown now, and they are all “watching what they eat”, so I thought this would be a perfect size to give each of them for just a little treat this Easter. Definitely not enough to ruin their healthy living lifestyle, but enough to satisfy their sweet tooth!
This project was easy. I actually ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot Pro machine just because I wanted to use a 12 x

Cut multiple shapes at once with fun Quickutz Punches! These punches are unlike most punches where you can only punch one shape at a time. You can easily cut multiple shapes at once with one pass through your die cutting machine!
Quickutz Punches are Cookie Cutter dies which means they are trimmed to just around the cutting edge of each die. They are wafer thin and will use the same sandwich formula as the smaller Quickutz dies, however, you may need extended plates if you only have standard plates, as these dies are similar in length to Border Dies.
