Snowman Wreath Card

November 18, 2018

Hi everyone! Here in Montreal, our first major storm has just been through, leaving us with a lovely blanket of snow. One of my daughters, although an adult, still gets excited at the thought of snowman building, so this card is for her. It combines my love of Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s CountryScapes with the Build a Snowman die set as well as her lovely Garden Notes – Whitepine Boughs and Pinecone  and Garden Notes – Holiday Holly & Berries die sets. Silk Microfine Glitter adds the perfect sparkle to the snowman.

Ho Ho Ho Santa Snow Scene

November 12, 2018

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s Frances Byrne here today with another Christmas card tutorial to share with you. I have been having fun this year creating a lot of snowy Christmas scenes using Distress Oxide inks to create my skies. Christmas where I live down here in Australia is in summer, so we enjoy a hot Christmas Day with cold lunches and probably swimming in a pool. As we don’t experience snow, it is fun to create snowy scenes on paper instead.

Non-Traditional Thanksgiving Card

Non-Traditional Floral Thanksgiving Card

Hi everyone! It’s Elena today and this time of year always makes me want to create some cards for Thanksgiving. I don’t own many traditional Thanksgiving themed stamps or dies so I decided to try an experiment to see if I could create a card with a Thanksgiving feel using the Color My Flowers stamps and dies from this past spring, but with fall colors and some easy, fun techniques. I like the result and hope you do too. It’s always nice for me to find new ways to use stamps and dies that I may not normally think of for certain holidays! Here’s how I made the card:

It’s Marilyn here today hoping you are well and enjoying the fall weather.
I want to share a Christmas card made with the gorgeous Snowflake stamp set and a make-it-yourself background. If you don’t have the paints you can easily use a piece of pretty patterned paper to emboss the snowflakes instead.

One Last Firework Before The Winter

October 28, 2018

 

In Quebec, the beautiful colors of autumn have past leaving behind brown and grey shades. Some flurries have made their first appearance, reminding us that winter will soon drape its white coat around us until spring. Looking at the new collection of flowers from Susan’s Garden Notes, the astrantia (from the Greek word “asteri” meaning “Star”) caught my eyes and reminded me of fireworks. So let’s celebrate in hopes that those astrantias will give us a little bit of strength and courage for the winter to come!

A Ribbon Tree Christmas

October 23, 2018

 

Hello – Welcome! Samantha here, sharing some Christmas-themed inspiration today. I’m loving all things Christmas at the moment. Even my local shopping center has starting displaying Christmas baubles and trees for sale…it’s hard not to get excited about how quickly Christmas Day is approaching. With that being said, I really wanted to create a few more simple cards to add to my Christmas card stash. I went with non-traditional colours to break up how much red, green and Kraft brown I’ve been using lately!
