from our home to yours



It's Amy T here with a set of cards!

So do you send out holiday greetings?  If you do, are you creating them throughout the year or is it a mad frenzy in November?  Every year I have the best intentions but things don't generally pan out so I'm frantically making a bazillion cards in November.

What I learned over the years is keep it clean & simple!


I love the Winter Wishes set for it's awesome design and fun font!

Doesn't it look great heat embossed in white?


I made a mask with a sheet of light weight cardstock and laid it on top of my die cut panel.  

I'm trying to keep my cards postal friendly so by incorporating that oval, it gives my card design a bit of visual interest.


I was going to use red/white twine but ended up using 4 different colors for added fun!

Let Our Lives Be Full

Hi! It's Jocelyn on the blog today.

It's Thanksgiving week in the U.S., and I was inspired to use the Be Full set. Instead of using the stamp as a Thanksgiving set, I wanted to use it for a thank you card that would work year-round.

Here's the finished card:

Thanks & Giving


Even though this card is pretty CAS, there are several layers. On top of the card base, I watercolored with spray mists. The mists have a great intensity. I used the watercoloring technique I learned from Yana. :)

Thanks & Giving


I didn't worry too much about how the watercoloring looked. Instead, I was going for loose blocks of colors.

While I was waiting for the watercoloring to dry, I die-cut a background from Wilna Furstenberg on my Cameo. While many backgrounds would work, the key is to die-cut it in white to contrast with the watercoloring.

Thanks & Giving

I die-cut part of a larger scene and simply trimmed off the edges for the final look.

For the third layer, I stamped the sentiment from the Be Full set on vellum, and heat embossed it with red glitter embossing powder.

Thanks & Giving

I trimmed down the layers and stitched the vellum to the backgrounds. The stitching allows the vellum to have a little lift at the bottom.

Thanks & Giving


So....does it work for a non-Thanksgiving card? Or do I need to send this card in the next two days? Ha!

Thanks for stopping by!
