We Wish You a Merry Christmas


Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing with you my absolute, without a doubt favorite stamp sets of all time. They are from Gina K. Designs and are part of the Merry and Bright Stamp TV Kit.

Here is a look at the entire kit:


I used both stamp sets on my card.  One set has the branches I used to hang my ornament and the other set has the sentiment and the ornament.  I cut the sentiment apart and used the "and a happy new year" on the inside of the card.

If I could love a StampTV kit any more than this one...well it hasn't been marketed yet. That all I know!

Have a terrific day and I'll  be back tomorrow to share some more Gina K. Designs goodness.

Happy Holidays and a Happy Mew Year


Happy Friday!

Today's Christmas card stars a mischievous cat...and his friend, the mouse.

I used Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates™ and Fancy Foils to make my background.  All of her Therm O Web products are right here.  You will want them all once you start using them.  Foiling is just such an easy way to pack a sparkly punch.

My focal image and sentiment are from the Purrfect Christmas stamp set designed by Chris Dayton.  I just wonder what that cat is thinking. Don't you?

I'll see you again tomorrow with a classic Christmas card in a not-so-classic color scheme.

Deck the Halls


Happy Thursday!

Today's Christmas card is whimsical for sure.  Look at that adorable tree!!

I used Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates™ and Fancy Foils to make my background.  You can find all of her Therm O Web products right here.  I love adding sparkle and shine to my holiday cards!

I pulled out the Fabulous Labels dies to make the solid green background for my focal image.  The white oval was also cut using this set of dies.

My focal image and sentiment are from the Noelle Mouse stamp set. I colored the tree and holly using Copic markers and added enamel dots as ornaments.  I love the cuteness factor of this card.

I'll be back tomorrow to share a card with a cat as its star.  MEOW!  See you then.

Peace on Earth


Hello Wednesday Friends!

As promised I am back with some gold and silver sparkle to share.

I used Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates™ and Fancy Foils to make my background.  You can find all of her Therm O Web products right here.  Foiling is so quick and easy and it really packs a sparkly punch!

I used stamps and dies from the Fabulous Holiday Labels for my silver strip and oval.  I heat embossed the images with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail Embossing Powder in silver.

My focal image and sentiment are from the Peaceful Holidays stamp set.  I used both the gold and silver embossing powders to give them their own sparkle.  I love using multiple embossing powders on cards.  It makes people wonder how I made the card!

I'll be back tomorrow to share a whimsical Christmas card.  I hope I'll see you then.

Inspired by All the Little Things #72 - A Flurry of Warm Wishes


Hello Sunday Friends!

What a pretty graphic for this week's Inspired by all the Little ThingsI instantly wanted to replicate the softness of this Christmas scene.




Instead of lights on a tree, I decided to go with an embossed snowflake look.  I chose a new set from Sugar Pea Designs called Flurry of Warm Wishes.  The snowflakes in this set are just so very delicate and sweet.

Maybe you can join in the challenge.  I would love to see what you create.  I'll be back tomorrow and hopefully you'll visit me again soon.
