Fancy Frost Lovely as a Tree Shaker Card

Don’t you love the combination of Sweet Sugarplum and Soft Sky used in the Fancy Frost Suite of products found on page 36 &37 of the Holiday Catalog? Well I do – these soft colors call out to me, but then to be honest I’ve loved all the products in this suite!

Want to see what I did with them?


I’ve created a shaker card – soooo much fun and so easy to do with the Foam Adhesive Strips (141825)!

And of course what did I fill the shaker card with? Our beautiful Fancy Frost Sequins (142519) of course! Added a cute little bow made of our our 3/8″ Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack and I’m ready for the holidays.

Truly Grateful

The Truly Grateful stamp set (131730) is one of the items that is currently part of our Weekly Deals and so I thought I would share with you a card I made recently using this set.

This set has some great images and the wood grain image in particular is wonderful to use when making cards for our guys. And as funny as it sounds the “log” image is what drew me to this set to begin with – I’ve got guys who like to turn wood on the lathe. LOL

Truly Grateful

I really like the way that this card turned out using the current 2014-2016 In Colors and Crushed Curry. The 2014 In Colors  are so rich and are great for fall, vintage, and guy cards. And of course you’re seeing them all over in the stores so they are right on trend too.

Lovely as a Tree

Today’s post is going to be a quick one – I just wanted to share with you some of the wonderful hand stamped cards that I have received in the mail from my fellow stampers.

They are all simply wonderful –

This first one uses our Lovely as a Tree stamp set (128655/127793) a tried and true set that is so versatile. I hope you can see the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz (118772) that makes this card extra special.

Lovely as a Tree (2)

This next card just sparkles with the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (132341 Ribbon (132137). The focal point is the poinsettia from the Joyful Christmas stamp set (131802/131805). It’s been stamped and embossed in silver on vellum. I think the 3/8″ Glimmer Brad (121003) adds some additional bling!

Joyful Christmas (2)

I don’t think my photos really capture how wonderful these cards are.

I love this next one done in soft colors –

Wonderful Winterland

This card uses our retired set Wonderful Winterland from the 2012 Holiday Catalog.
