Cup of Christmas Yum Card

What’s better in winter than a cup of hot cocoa? Today I’m sharing a card I made using the new Cup of Christmas Bundle (Cup of Christmas stamp set and Cup of Cheer Dies) and Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can use it as a Christmas card, but it’s really an all occasion winter themed card.

Harvest Hellos for ICS 09-2019

It’s time for the ICS 09-2019 Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Fabulous Fall. What could be more fabulous that going back to school? I know, not everyone feels that way, but when I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to get back to see my friends. I enjoyed school. And the beginning of the school year was special because I got a new notebook, paper, pencils, etc. and some new school clothes. My project for today is a welcome back to school card. I used the Harvest Hellos bundle (Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder Punch.) I sponged Cherry Cobbler ink onto Crushed Curry cardstock for the apple. The star background is from the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper. All the new holiday products are now available to order!

Mercury Glass Acetate Mini Curvy Keepsake Box

Today I’m sharing another 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek, and another Make & Take project I made for our August Candy Hearts team meeting. Not too long ago we had the Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies, which made a larger version of this box. Now we have this adorable mini version. We used the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies and Mercury Glass Designer Acetate to make this adorable box. It’s perfect for a battery operated tea light, small treats and gifts.

  • 3 Red Rhinestones applied onto the spray
  • spray adhered onto the outermost flap of the box using Mini Glue Dots
  • NOTE: Putting the spray on the outermost flap means you can still open and close the box easily

Halloween Bash Card

Today’s card is one of the Make & Take projects I made for our August Candy Hearts team meeting. It features some products from the new Monster Bash Suite: the Spooktakular Bash Bundle (Spooktacular Bash stamp set and Ornate Frames Dies) and Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP.) The DSP has some great spooky images, without being too creepy for kids. If you know anything about me, you should know that I’m a Halloween nut. My husband and I host a costume party every year. And I love this suite!
