In past posts, I have talked about stretching your stamps or thinking “outside the box” when it comes to theme. For today’s post, I will show you how to turn a simple floral stamp into a Christmas stamp. This is great when you don’t have or want to get a huge collection of holiday stamps but still want to create some festive greetings. It is helpful to have one or two holiday sentiments though. I will be using Avery Elle’s Modern Floral stamp and die set as my focal point along with a floral themed embossing folder whose flowers have a bit of a poinsettia look. Even better, would be to use a Christmas-themed embossing folder if you have it. The terrarium around the floral stamp reminds me of a Christmas ornament which is a plus.
For today’s project, I’m keeping it clean and simple again with a quick and easy Christmas card using this adorable set from Sizzix called Candy Cane Wishes.
The holiday season wouldn’t be the same without some fresh winter greenery. Holly, pine, red berries—all look gorgeous and festive decorating the doors and store fronts around town. For today’s project, I’m using paper “greens’ to frame a simple sentiment for a cheerful Christmas greeting card.
Glitter and Christmas cards definitely go hand in hand. For my project today, I’m showcasing Bo Bunny’s Glitter Paste in Emerald with a stencil from Echo Park. The stencil is called Branches, from their Celebrate Autumn line, but I thought with some green glitter paste, it could easily be used for a holiday themed card.
A gift card may not be fancy, but it is easy to give this time of year when you have a ton of people to buy for. I actually love getting them! Why not though, take a little time to make your own little pocket card for it? It adds a little extra special touch and a place to write a nice message for your gift.
Making the most out of my scrapbook paper kits is always my goal. For today’s project, I’ll be showing you four types of cards made from Carta Bella’s adorable Santa’s Workshop collection kit with a little help from the 6×6 paper pad.
The poinsettia has always been a beautiful symbol of the Christmas season. For today’s project, I have a gorgeous, detailed Poinsettia stamp from Ken Oliver that I’ll use in a couple of ways.
