All Through the Year

Earlier this week, I shared a non Christmas card using the Warmth and Cheer designer series paper collection and today I have another card using that paper that is Christmas themed. 

I took strips of designer series paper (there is also some from the This Christmas collection) and added them diagonally to some card stock and then trimmed it to the size I wanted.

I added a little bit of Fancy Frost designer acetate behind the designer series paper piece and then wrapped some baker's twine around the designer layer and tied on a Christmas trinket embellishment.

The background stamping and sentiment are from the Wonder of Christmas stamp set.

Fall Birthday

This is a card I actually made over a month ago and haven't shared with you yet using the August 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit.  It was one of those I made right before I needed it and didn't remember to take a picture while I was still in the craft room so I took it outside on the deck instead!

I used a couple different stamp sets on the card - the leaves and trees are from the Thoughtful Branches set and the sentiment comes from the Better Together stamp set.

I love these little wooden die cuts!

Filled with Happiness

The Everyday Jars framelits paired with the Jar of love stamp set can be used for so many different occasions, they are just too much fun to play with!  For this card, I filled the jar with random designer buttons that I had in my embellishments box.

The background design is a piece of designer series paper from the Warmth and Cheer collection in the Holiday catalog.

Simple Thanks

This time of year, more often than not my projects that I share with you can be made fairly quickly since I am usually either just finishing harvest or cleaning up the harvesting equipment about now.  Unfortunately this year we are barely making a dent in the harvest at this point so there may be some days I miss posting too. 

I chose the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set for this card as well as the Hardwood large stamp for the background.  There is a layer of Old Olive card stock with some Serene Scenery designer series paper over the top of the hardwood image and I added a little burlap ribbon for texture.

Sending Hugs

I put together today's card a few weeks ago when one of my son's classmates was hurt in a football game.  I didn't want anything too girly so I decided to go with simple and use the Swirly Bird stamp set images.

I chose to use Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Old Olive and Island Indigo ink and added popped up the sentiment from Sunshine Sayings after I cut out the words.

Tiny Treat Box

I decided to decorate one of the Clear Tiny Treat boxes with some Halloween Night specialty paper.  Instead of adding the paper to the outside, I put it on the inside of the box - one piece to go around the outside edges, one for the top and one for the bottom. 

Next, I added some silver glitter ribbon around the box and added a metallic foil doily with a punched out circle over the top.  I chose the Ghoulish Grunge stamp set and the one that came in the September paper pumpkin kit for the images on the circle.

Lastly, I added some metallic enamel shapes around the box.

In Everything

This card came about because I had some scraps lying around that I wanted to use.  The Fabulous foil designer acetate in the background is the only piece that I didn't actually re cut to make the card though...

A couple layers of matted Blooms and Bliss designer series paper wrapped in some gold bakers twine from the Baker's twine trio pack sits behind the sentiment from the Suite Seasons stamp set.
