Great Impressions Stamps–Santa Wishes

Hello!  Happy Monday!   Did you check if you were one of the lucky “Guess the Christmas Carol” winners?    If not, you might want to check the Great Impressions Stamps blog.  As most of you guessed, the carols that inspired my projects was “Santa Claus is Coming To Town”. 

I have another Christmas card to share with you this week.   This week I used Santa Wishes (G444) from Great Impressions Stamps and gave the chalkboard technique a try.

Your chalkboard card definitely evokes an antique look. It's quite appealing. The button and twine add nice texture. Thanks for visiting with us at 613 Avenue Create.

Cheryl, I really like the chalkboard technique used with this Santa image - takes me back a good few years because chalkboard seem to have been replaced by more modern 'tools'. Your background colouring and embellishments add such beauty and warmth to this card. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
