Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!

I love this look!  A cute chalkboard with Christmas 'chalk!'  This card uses the Jolly Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  The quick and easy tag is made by simply clipping off the corners of some Basic Black cardstock and using a couple of hole punches to make the center piece.  Ink the stamp up using White Craft Stampin' Ink and stamp.  Then add the Real Red and Mossy Meadow accents on the tag using Stampin' Markers.

The background is stamped with Versamark on Cherry Cobbler Cardstock with a strip of Home for Christmas DSP on the side.  The new Real Red Striped Ribbon and Season of Cheer Washi Tape finish this one off!

This elegant card uses the beautiful Night of Navy cardstock and ink.  A sheet of Silver Foil surrounds the pretty snowflakes on the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper.  A tiny dab of Dazzling Details adds some sparkle to each snowflake!

This card is so striking!  The beautiful leaping reindeer come from the same stamp set as the other two cards, the Jolly Christmas set.  The snow flakes are stamped in Mint Macaron and layered on a background of Real Red.  A touch of Season of Cheer Washi Tape borders the reindeer.  Gold Embossing Powder makes the 'Joy' from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set stand out!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are ready to start the Christmas season.  Enjoy!

Here's a really simple card that you can make in just a few minutes using the new Wonderland Stamp Set!  The gorgeous trees are stamped with the ink full-strength, then stamped again to give that far away look.  So pretty!

This card uses the same stamp set with Whisper White Craft Ink to give a glorious snowy effect.  The Sleigh Ride Edgelits make up the pretty little houses in the town.  The saying comes from To You & Yours Too Stamp Set.

Isn't this card lovely?  The trees are stamped with Mossy Meadow and Old Olive.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Merry Moments Paper Stack in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  A little strip of Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon fancies it up a bit.

I think this is my last set with a Thanksgiving card in it!  Next post will be all Christmas! (or mostly, haha!)  Enjoy, and I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family and pets this week.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Scenes!

This is one of my favorite sets from the new Holiday Mini Catalog, Happy Scenes.  The cute Hearth & Home Thinlit Die is just perfect for all of the holidays.  This card showcases Halloween, but without the Boo! and the spider, it turns into a Thanksgiving card!

This card uses the same stamp as the above card, only it also includes the tree!  And the very popular Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder creates a beautiful background.  A strip of White Glitter Ribbon sparkles it up a bit!

This gorgeous card uses the beautiful tree scene from the Happy Scenes stamp set, along with the Heart & Home Thinlits Die.  The Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and a wide strip of Silver Glimmer Paper add some beautiful texture to the background.

Thankful for Lighthearted Leaves!

Here is a gorgeous Stamp Setthat really comes alive when you use the Gold Embossing Powder with it.  The colors are added with Stampin' Markers.  The leaves in the background are stamped using Versamark Ink.  A tiny piece of Gold Metallic Thread makes the leaf sparkle.  So pretty!

This friendly card uses one of the leaves from the same Stamp Set (Lighthearted Leaves) to created a modern, geometric pattern.  The "Hello" is from the Greetings Thinlits set, punched out of Gold Glimmer paper, using the Big Shot.  A few dabs of glue with some Gold Glitter add a bit of extra bling.

This last card showcases some of the pretty Into the Woods Designer Series Paper.  A few Rhinestones and some Gold Cording finish it off.  This card would make a nice masculine birthday card, too!

I have one more set of Thanksgiving cards to share and then I will start sharing some beautiful Christmas cards!

Fall Acorn Fun!

This new stamp set, Acorny Thank You, comes with it's own Acorn Punch, which makes these cards super easy and fun.  The circle is punched out of the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper.  An Into the Woods wood element makes this card pop!

This Thanksgiving card is simple, yet contains many different elements!  A small strip of Into the Woods DSP in the background is covered by a cute tag created with the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch!  A Wooden Element and a piece of Old Olive Baker's Twine adds some texture.

This friendly note also uses the Acorny Thank You stamp set and matching Acorn Punch, but adds a strip of that pretty new Very Vanilla Subtle Stripes Satin Ribbon, from the new Holiday Mini Catalog.  The background acorns are stamped using Versamark Ink.

I hope you're having fun preparing for Thanksgiving now that the weather is finally starting to turn toward Fall.  Enjoy!

Grateful for Thanksgiving

Here are a few Thanksgiving cards to inspire you this season.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  I love this Thankful Forest Friends stamp set.  It coordinates so well with the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper.  This card adds a little Gold Glimmer paper behind the Mossy Meadow, which is embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  A wooden leaf from the Into the Woods Elements set finishes it off.

This elegant card uses the pretty Gold Foil sheets, which are cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits.  The strip behind the ovals is Black Glimmer paper and the sentiment (from the Thankful Forest Friends set) is embossed with Black Embossing Powder.  The Very Vanilla background is embossed using the new Elegant Dots Embossing Folder.  The bow is tied with the Gold Cording Trim from the new Holiday Mini catalog.

This pretty card uses the same stamp set and DSP as the other two cards, but also uses the Lots of Labels Framelits to cut out the sentiment.  The Rich Razzleberry bow is tied with the new Into the Woods Ribbon from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

I hope you enjoyed these cards and got some ideas for your own Thanksgiving cards this year.  Happy Thanksgiving!
