I always seem to need just a few more Christmas cards (sound familiar?), so I’ve devised a strategy for making some that are simple and fast, but don’t look that way! Today’s tutorial is a trio that uses a non-traditional palette. I have lots of friends with taste as quirky as mine… I’m calling it a ten-minute card, but it probably won’t take that long.
I timed myself: Die cut two circles (2 minutes or less!), emboss and sand the smaller circle (2 minutes or less), add scrapbook paper to card front (1 minute at most), layer and complete the ornament (about 2 minutes), attach ornament to card front (30 seconds or less). This leaves a couple of minutes to unwrap and savor a peppermint patty while admiring your creation!
The holiday season is creeping up on us and will be here before we know it. To help celebrate the holiday season I’ve put together a little container to remind us of what it is all about: JOY!

Hi it’s Kelly Booth here today with a simple card idea that can be reproduced easily for Christmas! I often use non traditional colors for Christmas as they make me happy!
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again with this month’s guest designer blog post. I created two baby cards for July´s post and had quite a pile of leftover die cut pieces. That gave me the idea to use the bits to create a multi-color die cut background and focal point for a fun children´s birthday card.
Hi, it’s Elena today. Is it just me or are the days flying by this summer? Christmas card making time is creeping up on me, but I wanted to take a moment to celebrate summer before it’s over with a pop-up card featuring the Sand Castle die set from Joset van de Burgt. The set is so cute, and believe it or not this pop-up card is easy to put together and doesn’t take that long to make. Here’s how I created it:
Hi! It’s Elena today and I have been wanting to use the Cacti Clear Stamps from Krista Schneider for a while now. Cactus and succulent-themed cards seem to be very popular these days and Krista’s stamp set is so cute that I had to jump in and make my own version. I used two different easy watercolor techniques with a bit of die cutting and of course – glitter!! Here’s how I made the card:
Hi everyone, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today and I’m sharing a trinket box that I made to hold some treasures in my craft room. This box is much more fun than a simple bag or envelope to hold small items that I have cleaned up from my work table while working on a project. I have been wanting to make some of Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s flowers and this was the perfect time. It was fun and simple to make – so let’s get started.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today! I have a fun card to share with you combining a Do It Yourself Background and the Circles Background Stamp. Below are the steps to replicate this card/technique.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with a card designed using Becky Seddon’s Free As A Bird die set and Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s CountryScapes Garden Edges Rose Hedge die set. This card could be used for a Valentine, a wedding, an anniversary, or whenever you want to send love to someone special.
