Countdown to Christmas - Embossed Frame Mistletoe Card

Hi there! I'm back today with another Christmas card video. This card is very striking, considering how easy it is to make. It's also very adaptable, which makes it an ideal candidate for your family's Christmas card.


I adore this Holiday Frame embossing folder! It is so impactful on clean and simple cards. So little effort for such a beautiful effect! And I normally would not have thought of Wild Wasabi on a card with red, but my upline used this combo on a card and I discovered I loved it!

AND... Can you keep a secret? :-D The oval I used for the focal image is not a Stampin' Up! die... But, we demonstrators have had a preview of the upcoming Spring Catalog and let's just say there might be a set of Framelits that you could use on this card. *wink wink* Unfortunately though, the Spring catalog items won't be available until January, but I'm just sayin'... ;)

Anyway, you can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Happy Stampin'! :)

Wine Bottle Tag Featuring Exclusive Single Stamp

Hello! Happy Monday! Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week?! Yikes - where has this year gone?

I've got a fun project to share with you featuring one of the exclusive, never-before-seen Single Stamps. Remember, for every $40 you spend on Stampin' Up! products through my website through December 31st, you'll be able to choose any one of the Single Stamps for FREE! And don't forget that the Online Extravaganza started today - so you have the opportunity to save 20-50% when you shop online!


This wine bottle tag is quick and easy to make, but features an eye-catching embellishment that showcases the Bold Snowflake stamp. 

This project is perfect for dressing up a bottle of wine for a hostess gift, or to take to a neighbor's house. But here's another great idea if you don't drink wine: This tag is great on a bottle of holiday-scented hand soap or lotion! Perfect for a teacher gift!


I do have a video for you on this project - it's not start-to-finish, but I show how I made the fun embellishment, and how to make the base of the tag. So check it out below, or over on my YouTube channel! Enjoy! 

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Stampin'! :)

Start-to-Finish Sunday #10 - My Favorite Card Sketch Goes Christmas! :)

Hello! Happy Sunday! Can you believe I'm actually on the blog today, AND that I actually have a Start-to-Finish Sunday video for you??!? :)

Today's card is my absolute favorite go-to card sketch. It is so versatile and you can change it up for any holiday. But the reason it's so great for Christmas cards is that it's super easy - and super cheap!! - to mass produce. It comes together great in assembly line style construction. And it requires only a very minimal investment in supplies... just a few sheets of cardstock, some DSP, and one stamp set. Oh! I forgot to mention this in the video, but now it's even easier to get all the supplies you need, because the stamp set I used is available as single stamps! Sure, if you love the stamp set you can get the whole thing. But if you're not sure, or you're just starting out with cardmaking, you can get the Christmas image as a single stamp for just $5.95! Check out my website for all the materials you need.

Check out the video below, or over on YouTube! Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin'! :)

Hello! Happy almost weekend! I'm still here... and I'm so sorry I've been gone so long! I have a whole bunch of Christmas projects on deck to share with you soon. So I'm starting off today with  a sparkly and shiny winter card.

I love this card! I am so happy with how it turned out. And I love all the texture and sparkle :) This was actually my first time working with Stampin' Up! Glimmer Paper and I'm totally in love. I also made a start-to-finish video for this card. Check it out below, or over on YouTube. Enjoy!

Happy Stampin'! :)
