Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Series - Part One

Looking for inspiration using the "Merry Little Christmas" stamp set from Stampin Up's 2013 Holiday Mini catalog?   I really fell in love with this set and have created several projects to help inspire you this holiday season.  Today's project is this beautiful Christmas card.

This Christmas card features the very popular banner style with Stampin Up's Season of Style designer series paper, Merry Little Christmas and Everything Eleanor stamp sets.  The larger banner was cut using Papertrey Ink's Wine Bottle Tag Die, with the top portion cut at score line.  The smaller banner was cut from another Papertrey Ink Die called, Tag Sale #5.  They layer and compliment each other really well.  This could easily be cut out if you don't have the dies.  I added a little bit of hemp twine to top it all off.

I hope you enjoyed Part One of the "Merry Little Christmas" series and please come back tomorrow to see the next project.
Happy Crafting,

Masculine Thinking of You

I really have been enjoying the "Sweet Essentials" stamp set from Stampin Up.  I just love the font!  Here is a card I was inspired from a Stampin Up post.  It was awhile back, but I thought I would try my take at it.  This is my masculine version of a birthday, thinking of you card.  

I used a window frame framelit that I cut in half and the cheveron is from the Tasteful Trim die.

Hope you enjoy and as always Happy Crafting,

Banner Butterfly Trio

Welcome to the butterfly trio of cards.  I took a simple sketch to start the basis for my three designed.  I used the large banner as in beautiful blue paper adorned with butterflies.  The butterflies seen here are done with Stampin Up punches.  They are a great "go to" for cards, because who doesn't like butterflies.

Another great thing about these cards is that you could pair it with almost any sentiment; birthday, anniversary, sympathy or congratulations.

Here are a few more close ups:
