Snowflake Kisses Snow Globe with Therm O Web & GinaK Designs


Happy Wednesday, crafty friends!


It’s finally turned cold here in North Carolina. Not cold enough for any of the snowy stuff, but definitely feeling a bit of the winter freeze. Perfect time to share with frosty winter snow globe card that I made recently for the Therm O Web blog featuring stamps, stencils, and Glitz Glitter Gel from Therm O Web and GinaK Designs.


I just love the texture that comes from the Glitz Glitter Gels. Such great dimension, with glitter that doesn’t make a mess. This is the new Silver Glitz color. So perfect for winter flakes.


I used a Tim Holtz snow globe die set for the window opening, and added a simple deer silhouette from another favorite set. The snowflake stencil and sentiment are from GinaK Designs.

I’ve just dropped my parents off at the airport, and am now headed out to the coast for my annual January scrapbooking retreat. I’m so behind on my blog visits, and I apologize for that. Really hope to be by to see you all soon!

Merry Christmas with Santa’s Helper

Popping by to wish my sweet bloggy friends a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with one last holiday card share for the year featuring an adorable holiday helper from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 3 release.


This sweet elf and his stacked present are from the Santa’s Helper die set from Chapter 3. Love how he’s styled like those old-time silhouette images, so I kept to that look with a crisp black cardstock image, layered with color accents for a bit of whimsy.


I really like the combo of pink and red for the holidays, so that is what I went with here. The soft pink stripes in the background were made with the Mint Shifter stencil and masking. The sentiment is a mix of stamping and die cut alpha label letters. A wee pom pom for the hat finishes the design.


I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas holiday with your family and friends! And thanks, as always, for stopping by!

2019 Holiday Card Series- Day 9 with Therm O Web and Pink & Main


Happy Tuesday, crafty friends, and welcome to Day 8 of my 2019 Holiday Card Series. Last week I shared some silly llama tags that I had made for the recent Pink & Main match-up on the Therm O Web blog, and today’s project is a continuation of that post with this set of holiday llama cards.


Aren’t these llamas woolly adorable? They are from the Fa La Llama stamp set from Pink & Main. I colored my images with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. The glittery background was made with a bit of masking and Therm O Web’s new Silver color of Glitz Glitter Gel. That stuff is so awesome for adding some holiday sparkle and shine.


I’m such a sucker for plaid. Love this Kringle & Co. paper by Photo Play Paper. As always, I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for this project up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

2019 Holiday Card Series- Day 7


Happy Sunday, crafty friends, and welcome to Day 7 of my 2019 Holiday Card Series. Many of you who have followed me for awhile know that I am a sucker for plaid prints and natural elements, so today’s card featuring Echo Park Paper’s adorable My Favorite Christmas collection is one of my favorites from this season.


I sometimes struggle coming up with masculine card designs, and one of the reason’s that I love this line so much is how well it works for anybody on your card-giving list. I paired several patterned papers with a simple sentiment label trimmed from one of the cut-apart sheets, and topped it with a sticker and enamel dots. Crisp black cardstock makes all the elements pop and helps keep this in that masculine style.


I’m down to the last two holiday tubs, and then my house will be fully decorated for Christmas. One more thing to check off my longish to-do list. How about you? Are you all ready for the holidays?

2019 Holiday Card Series- Day 6 with Therm O Web & Pink & Main


Hello friends, welcome to Day 6 of my 2019 Holiday Card Series. Today’s project is not a card, but a set of tags that I made for the recent Pink & Main collaboration on the Therm O Web blog. This is the adorable Fa La Llama stamp set mixed with fun plaid paper from Photo Play Paper and one of the newest colors of Glitz Glitter Gel from Therm O Web.


The tags were die cut from GinaK Designs Red Velvet cardstock using the Decorative Tag die set. And then I gave the tags an overall glittery backdrop using Silver Glitz and my favorite snowy stencil. Super easy and quick, and I love the sparkly shine. As always, I’ve got the full tutorial for this project up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Just one more day until the weekend! Hope it’s a good one!

2019 Holiday Card Series- Day 4


Hello friends, welcome back to day 4 of my 2019 Holiday Card Series. Today’s project is a set of very merry cards featuring papers from Simple Stories and Therm O Web’s Deco Foil Metallix Gel.


I love 2-fer projects like this that allow you make multiple cards from one simple design. Such a great time-saving tip when the rush of the holidays begins. The focal panels of these cute cards are made from 3×4 journaling cards, layered with coordinating patterned papers and accented with simple sentiment stickers and twine bows.


Stenciled White Pearl Metallix Gel dots add a fun textured and snowy detail to the background. Love how the Metallix and Glitz Glitter Gels give some textural dimension while still keeping the design flat for mailing. If you’d like to learn more about that process, I’ve got the complete tutorial for these cards up on the Therm O Web blog.

December is absolutely zipping by! Hope you’re having a wonderful holiday season!

2019 Holiday Card Series- Day 2


Hi Crafty Friends, welcome to Day 2 of my 2019 Holiday Card Series. Today’s card is a stacked design featuring layers of bold black cardstock and some of my favorite images and papers from Echo Park’s My Favorite Christmas collection.


I absolutely love the sticker images in this line, and chose some of my favorites for my holiday card series this year, starting with this adorable deer here. The deer and snowflakes were added to the card with foam tape for a bit of dimension, layered against panels of patterned paper and a sentiment block cut from a sheet of journaling cards. The black frame was made by trimming around the negative die cut opening from a stacked postage die that I’ll be using on an upcoming design. I do try to use everything when I’m in my “scrappy holiday” state of mind.


I do think this card combines some of my favorite Christmas things, just as the paper name implies…. natural elements and prints, holiday plaid, kraft paper, and a cute critter, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day.
