Freezin’ Season with CardMaps

 

 

Happy New Year, crafty friends! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and were able to celebrate in some special way. It may have been a quiet holiday for many of you, as it was for me… but regardless, it sure was nice to close the book on 2020, wasn’t it? Now here we are in January, in a brand new year with new possibilities, a fresh start, and a clean slate! Cheers to that!

For all you fans of sketch layouts, January also brings a new set of sketches on the PageMaps site. And once again, I was so very happy to be able to create a few projects using the new January CardMaps designs. Here is the first of the sketches that I used, and my take on it using stamps from LDRS Creative.


This is the adorable LDRS Snowball Fight stamp and die set that I received for a Therm O Web collaboration back in December. Ever since I got my sweet pup Finley, who very much reminds me of an arctic fox, I simply cannot resist cute fox images like these. I stamped these cuties in Tuxedo Black ink onto PhotoPlay Paper cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. They were then die cut with the coordinating dies.


The sketch used an assortment of shapes and frames behind the focal image, so I tried to recreate that look with a variety of dies. The circles and the fold-over tag are new-to-me dies from Reverse Confetti. I added a snowbank border die cut using Heffy Doodle’s stitched Slopey-Joes border dies, too.


Patterned paper is some older 6×6 paper pads from Fancy Pants and Carta Bella. As always, I’ll attach a list of supplies below.

Hope your January is off to a great start! I’ve never really been one for making New Year’s resolutions, but my head is filled with dreams and goals for the upcoming year. Mostly revolving around crafting and fun. 😀
How about you, friends? Any new resolutions out there?

You’re Snow Cool with Therm O Web & LDRS Creative


Happy Monday, crafty friends! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! It’s raining cats and dogs here today (and foxes and snowmen)… so a very good day to stay inside and tackle that holiday to-do list. I’m happy to say that the bulk of my Christmas cards are going out today, yay! Now we’ll just see if any of them make it in time.


Last week, the Therm O Web team joined up for the first time with LDRS Creative, and I received the cutest little fox stamps and dies to play with. I shared one card with you on Friday (scroll down one post or click here to see it), and today I am back with a second. This time pairing the adorable Snowball Fight and Pine Tree Forest stamps with Ranger’s new Kraft Heavystock paper and Therm O Web Glitz Glitter Gel in white. I absolutely love the look of white on kraft for the holidays, don’t you? Think it reminds me of brown paper packages, tied up with string. And these are a few of my favorite things.


As always, if you’d like to learn more about this project, head on over to the Therm O Web blog and check out my step-by-step tutorial. And thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Friday, crafty friends! The freezin’ season has hit us in North Carolina! If I didn’t believe it before, these temperatures we’ve been having definitely are reminding me that winter and Christmas are almost here. So perfect time to share this sweet holiday card with you today that I made for our collaboration with LDRS Creative on the Therm O Web blog this week.


If you’re not familiar with LDRS Creative, you need to check them out! They have some of the cutest stamps out on the market, and if you love critter stamps as much as I do, you will become an instant fan. This is the adorable Snowball Fight stamp and coordinating die set that I used on my petite 3.5×5 card today. The border of pine trees is one of their stamps, too. I paired both with a fabulous two-step stencil by PhotoPlay Paper and some bright red Glitz Glitter Gel by TOW. I always love a touch of sparkle at the holidays.


In honor of our fun collaboration this week, Therm O Web is offering up a $40 gift card to our online shop, so be sure to pop over to the blog to get yourself entered. And as always, I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for this project there, as well, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
