Simple and Sweet Snowglobe Christmas Card

This is a sample Christmas card I made for my sister using Sweet Snowglobe from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It’s a single stamp, offered for $8.95 and it coordinates with the Sweet Treat Cups. Since this is going to be mailed, I decided not to use the cups (postage for 40+ cards would be crazy!)

For the base, I used Real Red Textured Card stock, layered with Old Olive and Whisper White. The top corners of each layer were rounded with the Corner Chomper, but you could also use the Corner Rounder Punch on the two single layers.

I used the SU Markers to color the snowglobe (Real Red, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and Old Olive). Then, I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the snowy parts with the 2 Way Glue Pen.

To continue the glittery theme, I added 3 Glimmer Brads (in Real Red, Old Olive, and Soft Suede–Brights and Neutrals collection). By using the cropadile, I made sure each brad would be lined up.

Across the top, I stamped “Merry Christmas” from Christmas Greetings in Real Red ink, paper pierced below it and added some Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon.

The White layer is adhered with stampin dimensionals to the base.

And yes, I know it’s September and I just made a Christmas card. It’s a sickness!


Copic Colored Love Bugs Valentine Note

This is a fun 4″ square note card I made using the Level 1 Hostess Stamp Set Love Bugs. I stamped the love bugs on Gina K Luxury White card stock with Memento Black Ink (both are best for coloring with Copic Markers). I layered the white onto basic black and then added a 1/2″ Real Red Epoxy Brad (from the newest Ocassions Mini Catalog). The card base is Real Red and the sentiment “love bugs” is stamped in black ink on white card stock, trimmed out with scissors and adhered to the bottom

Valentine Note Card

I like the size of this card for a Valentine. It would make a good Valentine for kids in school, or attached to a gift for a friend. This notecard is made from Pretty in Pink card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ folded in half. I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on a strip of Real Red card stock and layered it behind a 3 3/4″ square of Chocolate Chip DSP.

The stamp is from I {Heart} Hearts, stamped in Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock. I punched it out with the Full Heart Punch and layered it onto a Real Red heart I made using the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit. That was attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.
