Have you ever been inspired by Pinterest?! Oh sure you have! This was the case here when I thought about my Stampin’ Write Markers.  Not many of us feel empowered to just free-hand drawing a line.  But here, I did just that!

I used the Tin of Tags Stamp Set and added the Christmas lights along the strand giving that “hanging on the house” look!  With a couple of stars and a sentiment from the same set, you have a very clean and simple card idea.

Added Bonus:  The Tin of Tags Stamp Set can be used during the year as well.  Many of these sentiments work well outside of the Christmas season!  Think, baby, birthday, special surprise, hostess and teacher gifts, etc…!

Christmas Pines

Christmas Pines

season-of-joy

As you can tell, if I could, I would skip right over Halloween.  (audible gasp)  I have never been a big a fan nor will I send out cards for the event.  So without further adieu, today’s card features the Christmas Pines stamp set!  What I love most is the clean and simple elegance of this card and the WOW factor that it provides.

Love To Ink’s Tips:

  • I have kept the inks to two.  Old Olive and Archival Basic Black!  By the way, it is my NEW favorite ink.
  • Stamp off the sides of the Whisper White layer cardstock for that peek a boo look.
  • I added pearls for a little bit of POP!

Wonderful Year!

Wonderful Year!

joyful-christmasWhen you have to mass produce cards, think of Designer Series Paper and a large sentiment stamp set.  Wonderful Year is perfect when paired with This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack.  The best part about this paper pack is that it comes with 4 sheets of each design.  Whoo Hoo! for mass producing your cards! Add some coordinated punched holly and berry from the NEW Holly Berry Builder Punch and you have a super easy card that can be mass produced in no time.

Christine’s Tips:

  • Need to mass produce your cards this year?  No worries.  My tip for you is to cut all your cardstock and designer series paper first.  Then, handstamp your sentiment.  After that, punch your holly and berry embellishments.
  • The next step would be to adhere all the Designer Series Paper to your base cardstock.
  • After that, adhere the stamped image to your solid cardstock layer and adhere to your cardstock base.
  • Finally, add your embellishments.
  • In no time will you have a complete set of holiday cards to send out.

Need to order the supplies to make this easy card?  Use the hostess code below to place your order in my ONLINE STORE and I will send you a FREE gift.  If your order is over $150, do not use the hostess code, but I will still send you a FREE gift, valued at $7.50.

Sheltering Tree

Sheltering Tree

apple-birthdayThis all purpose set can be changed for each seasons, just by either by stamping or using seasonal Designer Series Paper.   Let us talk about the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.  It can take you into Fall even though it has a summer feel to it.   The Happy Birthday is from the Fresh Fruit Stamp Set in Soft Suede.

Christine’s Tips:

  • Since Sheltering Tree is a Photopolymer Stamp Set, be sure to use the Piercing Mat underneath while stamping to get a crisp and clean image.
  • Keeping to Fall theme, I used only Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz Ink, taking my cue from the colors in the Designer Series Paper.
  • I cut the Whisper White layer at 2.75″ x 3.75″ and layered that onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock measuring 3″ x 4″.
  • As always, when I have horizontally designed cards, I cut my cardstock lengthwise on the 8.5″ side for a side folding card.

Another Totally Trees!

Totally Trees!

When I get a NEW stamp set, one of the things on my agenda is to see how many ways I can use it.  Otherwise it wouldn’t be versatile.  I know that word is thrown around alot these days.  Everyone wants to get their money’s worth.  I am no different.

thinking-of-youAs you know, I love a clean and simple look to my cards.  Putting just two colors together, really makes this wonderful little set incredible.  Basic Gray and Bermuda Bay.  Thinking Of You cards are perfect to send for just because, get well and even your sympathies.

This gorgeous card makes quite a statement and it takes no time at all to complete.

Totally Trees!

Totally Trees

One of my favorite NEW stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog is Totally Trees.  This versatile set features a tree from the tropics right along side something you might want to use for your Christmas cards.

The best part is this set is perfect for year ’round stamping.

brown-trees

Here I stayed with just Early Espresso ink and made a quick background paper.   The sentiment is from You’re So Sweet and cut out with the banner framelit from the Mini Treat Bag.  One of my favorite things to do is…you guessed it-popping up with Dimensionals!  I use them whenever I can.

Banners For You

Banners For You

Blue Striped Night of Navy and Whisper White make my heart go pitter patter!  This color combination is both gorgeous and spectacular at the same time.

Christine’s Tip: 

  • I like my cards quick and easy, however, keeping things to an absolute minimum works best for my busy schedule.  If you are busy like me and the rest of the world, then keep your color palette to two colors, Whisper White and one other color.
  • Even better, stamp on your pretty papers.  This one, Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper works well to do just that.
  • I love to SAVE 10% by bundling and saving.  This versatile stamp set coordinates with the Bunch of Banners Framelits!

Use the Hostess Code HVXNTG4V  when you place your order in my Online Store and I will send you a package of Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine. Do not use the Hostess Code if you place an order of $150 or more. You will still receive the FREE Gift.
