Winter Woods

Winter Woods is such a beautiful stamp set that can be used for any occasion, not just for holidays. I've used this set a lot but decided to make this card a Christmas card.  I combined the colors Shaded Spruce and Mint Macaron together which I think are great together.  I did use the retired DSP Frosted Floral Specialty Paper but it just went well with my card.  So if you still have some, you might want to use it for your card too.  Here are the instructions for my card:




Stamp Set:  Winter Woods, Merry Christmas to All

Cardstock:  Shaded Spruce, Mint Macaron, Frosted Floral Specialty DSP (Retired 2018)

Ink:  Shaded Spruce

Other:  Big Shot, Subtle Embossing Folder, Merry Christmas Thinlets Dies, Beautiful Boughs Dies, Sizzix Adhesive Sheets, Snail Adhesive, Dimensionals




1.     The base of the card is Shaded Spruce cardstock cut at 4-1/4” x 11” and scored at 5-1/2” in the middle.

2.    The second layer is Mint Macaron cardstock cut at 4” x 5-1/4” and inserted into the Subtle Embossing Folder and run through the Big Shot.  Adhere to the front of the card.

3.    Ink up the large pine tree from Winter Woods stamp set with Shaded Spruce ink and use the Stamparatus to center it onto the 2-7/8” x 3-5/8” Frosted Floral Specialty DSP.  Layer onto the 2-1/2” x 3-1/2” Shaded Spruce cardstock.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive to the front of the card towards the right side.

4.    Use the Sizzix Adhesive Sheet on Shaded Spruce cardstock to die cut the “Merry” from the Merry Christmas Thinlets and the pines from the Beautiful Boughs Dies (2019 Holiday).  Die cut through the Big Shot and adhere to the front of the card.

5.    Ink up “Christmas” from Merry Christmas to All stamp set with Shaded Spruce on the Frosted Floral Specialty DSP and run it through the Subtle Embossing Folder and attached with Dimensionals to the card towards the left.

Harvest Hellos - Apples

Hi Stampers,  I was gone a lot in September so wasn't able to post as much as I would like to.  However, I have been making lots of card samples and hope to start sharing again this month.
I did a few Fall cards, but not so much Halloween.
This is my card swap for September, so I will share it first.   Here are my instructions:


Stamp Set:  Harvest Hellos, Birch BG
Cardstock:  Soft Suede, Whisper White, Granny Apple Green, Crushed Curry, Poppy Parade
Ink:  Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green, Crushed Curry, Poppy Parade
Other:  Big Shot, Stamparatus, Apple Builder Punch, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Linen Thread, Glue Dots, Snail Adhesive, Multipurpose Glue, Dimensionals

1.     The base of the card is Soft Suede cardstock cut at 4-1/4” x 11” and scored at 5-1/2” in the middle.
2.    The second layer is Whisper White cardstock cut at 4” x 5-1/4” and inserted in to the Stamparatus.  Use the Birch Background stamp using Soft Suede ink to create the background.
3.    Use Granny Apple Green cardstock and Granny Apple Green ink using the apple stamp.  Use the Apple Builder Punch to punch it out.  Do the same with Crushed Curry and Poppy Parade.
4.    Use Soft Suede ink and cardstock for the stems and Granny Apple Green for the leaves.  Attach stems to all three apples using Snail Adhesive.
5.    Attach Linen Thread to the Crushed Curry apple using a Glue Dot.  Attach a Granny Apple Green leaf to the Poppy Parade apple.
6.    Place the Crushed Curry apple on the card front first, then the Granny Apple Green one, and Dimensionals on the back of the Poppy Parade apple to pop it up.
7.    Ink up the sentiment “You Make Me Smile” with Poppy Parade ink on Whisper White.  Die cut with the Stitched Nested Label Die.  Attach at the top with Dimensionals.
