Hi, It’s Kelly Booth here today with a heart-warming treat idea for friends, or in my case for my grandchildren. It’s such a fun time of year leading up to the holidays. I try and make special things to enjoy with the grandchildren when I see them.
Hey Friends! It’s EK here to share a bit of holiday fun. I don’t know about you, but I think these days people take the holidays a little too seriously and we all could inject some fun back into our holidays. I think we as adults forget sometimes what the magic of Christmas should be, and instead craft and create elegant and fancy holiday decor. Today I am trying to invent with my child’s mind and create a really fun and magic-filled project.
Hey Friends. It’s EK, and I am sneaking in today to share a little card project that is hoping for some cooler weather and warmer drinks. It might be October, but here it is still hot, hot, hot, and I am so ready for sweaters and hot chocolate. And while there is not a break in the weather in the forecast, Krista’s new stamp collection perfectly evokes what I want it to be like outside.

Hello! It’s Elena today with a Fun in the Sun Shaker Card. I was able to capture (I hope) the essence of summer with a bright color palette of turquoise, yellow, orange, red and white along with great stamped images from the Sun & Surf clear stamp set. Although it is a “happy summer” card, you could easily adapt it as a birthday card, especially for a teen or a guy who likes to surf.
Hello everyone! EK Gorman here hoping your day is filled with sunshine instead of rain. Where I am, it is no longer as cold as it was earlier this month and all the snow is gone, but now our skies are filled with clouds and rain, so I felt it was only fitting to create a card that brings out the hope of sunshine despite the wet weather. The new stamp set from Krista Schneider, April Showers, is the perfect stamp set for such a card. I created a little rainy Copic-colored card that celebrates the sunshine within the showers.
I am a sucker for critters on Christmas cards and reindeer might be my favorite! So naturally, I had to create a card featuring the Reindeer & Birds Clear Stamp set. This set is so cute that it made sense to me to combine it with a funny greeting to create a whimsical card perfect for the Christmas-lover with a sense of humor. Here’s how I made the card:
Although I love the traditional deep reds, greens and golds of the holidays, on this gingerbread wreath card I instead used brighter pinks, greens and purples to create a fun, kid-friendly Christmas card. To me, the vibrant colors remind me of the candy pieces that typically adorn gingerbread houses and people and really captures the “Candy Land” feeling. Yum!
