Little Christmas Bird

Hello, fellow crafters! Today I want to share with you a Christmas card.  I found the cutest little bird from Kajsansscrapblog. If you follow her link, you’ll find several free images with these cute birds! Adorable!

For my card, I started off by first using my Prismacolors on the image. Once that was done, I mounted the image onto some 6×6 Silver Laser Lustre. I used some Glossy Accents on the candle to make it seem more realistic. I then layered all that onto some Lemon Yellow Vellum, and in turn mounted that onto some Cream Velvet Touch from Paper Temptress. I had some red cardstock in my stash, so I put all those pieces onto it as my card base. I used my leafy vine die cut to put several around the image, and a poinsettia in the middle of those. Placing pearls onto the vines made them “pop” out more. I then simply cut out a sentiment from some Kraft Vintage Christmas paper and placed it in the top left corner of my card. And then it was done! It was pretty simple to make, really. But the end result was exactly what I was looking for!

I hope you enjoyed this image….please stop by often, as there’s something new every day!

Season’s Greetings

Here’s a CAS Season’s Greetings card that is quick and easy but very elegant looking. It was a breeze to put together but people just love the look of it.  I am using stunning papers from Paper Temptress to create this beauty along with some die cuts.

I cut the base of the card using Red Pepper Skinny Columns.  It comes as part of a wonderful textured package.  I was able to get the columns to show even better by adding white ink to the edges and parts of the card front.  I used Heavenly white to cut out the snow globe and the Season’s Greetings die cut.  Then I added some bright blue cardstock behind the cut out portion of the snow globe.

Season’s Greetings everyone!

Brusho Christmas Ornament Card

Hello, and here’s to hoping that all of our U.S. friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to spend it with family and friends.  For this week’s project, I’m bringing you another Brusho card.


For this card, I started out with a card base of Neenah Solar White cardstock.  Layered on top of that is some Pool cardstock, which is a gorgeous blue.  the ornaments are watercolor paper that have been sprinkled with Brusho in Sea Green and Alizarin Crimson.  I used some black thread to tie bows to the tops of the ornaments, and the sentiment is from the My Sentiments Exactly Holiday Squares set.  The dies are Crafter’s Companion Die’Sire ornament dies called Snowflake Bauble, Ornate Bauble, and Teardrop Bauble.

Quick Christmas cards.





Just a quick little post today with some quick and lovely Christmas cards. The base cardstock for both is ‘Red pepper classic columns’ and in the second one I used ‘solar white classic columns ‘(both from Paper Temptress)  for behind the jar. With such awesome cardstock to work with, its easy to knock out a few cards in short order.

For both cards I used stickers and a pop up shaker jar container.

I also used some of Paper Temptress ribbon for the jars and the garland – I used thin double sided tape and folded the ribbon in half.

I really like the columns cardstocks for Christmas cards – it adds just a wonderful detail to even quick sticker cards!!!

All for today – Take Care!!!

Thanks for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  I guess I could have made a ba_igp6344-3 Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  I guess I could have made a baby card as I am expecting a grandchild around November 27.  This is a very exciting time.

The base of this card is Golden Rod Treasures.  The beautiful second layer is Kraft Treasures.  The green layer is Grass Treasures and just the perfect color. The trunk of the tree and branches is Hot Fudge Pop Tones.  I wanted a die cut wording added so the thanks is cut from Butternut Orange Treasures.

It seemed the card needed a little shimmer  so the tree and Happy Thanksgiving are from Cryogen White.

Brusho Christmas Tree

Happy Saturday!  Time for another Christmas card… I really like the way the tree pops on this card.


For this card, I stared out using Sea Green Brusho on some watercolor paper.  I cut out the tree using the Crafter’s Companion Die’sire Seasonal Tree die, and then I used some scrap red paper for the pot the tree is in.  The card base is Neenah Solar White, and the black background paper is my favorite textured black paper, Classic Linen Epic Black.  The sentiment is heat embossed using a stamp from My Sentiments Exactly set Rockin’ Around with Tsukeniko white embossing powder.

Silver and blue



Dropping by with a Christmas card today and for the life of me I cannot find where this Digi is from – it is nowhere to be found on my computer. Ah well it is a sweet little snowman and teddy bear image colored with polychrome pencils onto ‘cryogen white’  cardstock from Paper Temptress. Jusy lovely cardstock for coloring, so smooth and shimmery!!!!

The base cardstock is silver glossy cardstock – also from Paper Temptress. It looks a bit washed out in my photos today but try as I might I couldn’t get a better picture(I wont complain as it was a rainy day here and we haven’t had rain in months…)

I added some silver corner stickers, some rhinestones, a ornament sticker and a chipboard deer that I used a silver misting spray on and a small red rhinestone for his nose.

I really need to get hoppin on making Christmas cards – I am less than half done and way too much going on at my house in the next few months!!! I hope you all are having a great week!!! See ya next time!!!

Pumpkin Spice Card

Hello, crafters! It’s Friday…I normally don’t post on Fridays, but I wanted to help a fellow DT as she is a bit under the weather. I’ve had some help me…this is “pay it forward” time!  😆  I’m not sure if you can tell or not, but the image is actually a paper piecing I did using the Pumpkin Spice collection from Cuddly Cute Designs. Paper piecing is actually what it says it is: piecing paper pieces together. Sometimes it may seem a bit tedious, but the results are just fantastic and very satisfying!

Here are the papers that I used (almost all of the paper is from PT): Ponderosa Pine Classic Linen, Flame Mica/Metallic (the orange colors you see), Cryogen Iridescent White, Ivory Classic Skinny ColumnsLambswool Feltweave, and Ivory Feltweave. The black was paper I had in my stash.

I hope you like my project! Be sure to come back every day for a new designer project!

Happy Fall

Here’s some CAS (Clean and Simple) cards that use some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress combined with beautiful leaves from Nature.  How perfect are these for fall time?  I have a dear friend at church who loves to press leaves and flowers and then gives them to me as I make greeting cards from them.


This card is use brown bag cardstock as the base.  I layered the leaf on some simple Neenah Solar White , then layered it on some Mica/Metallic Emerald.  I added a simple sticker sentiment “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”

leaf-cards-40-paper-t-40Here’s an additional pressed leaf from my local area that I mounted onto some wonderful kraft paper;  It’s quick and easy to create your own square cards by cutting your 8.5×11″ sheets to 5.5×11″ sheets.  You can then save your left over paper for all those die cuts.

Hope you have a beautiful fall day!

Cheers, Holley
