Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

All is Bright Card

There is just something about kraft cardstock with a bit of color pop, and I thought the new Warmest Wishes set would be a great project to apply it!


I stamped these fun mountains in the background first and then added some of the gorgeous Snowflake Sparkle flakes around those, as well as a few stars.  All of them were stamped with Fresh Snow ink and colored with Copic markers.  I love the overlapping shapes created with the mountains!


The polar bear and his separate sweater were stamped and die-cut from white cardstock, then colored.  I made sure to use lots of bright colors on the sweater so the polar bear looked properly festive!


The sentiment was added next to him in Fresh Snow.  To help make the words within the frame a bit more prominent, I stamped them a second time onto white cardstock and trimmed out around them to fit within the stamped frame.  I love that this could be used for the holidays or any winter occasion!  If you wanted things bit cleaner, you could even leave the sweater off of the bear since it is separate!

Wish Upon a Star Card

Next up is the sweet little fox from Warmest Wishes.  This little guy is just as cute as can be!  


This time I stamped the trees as a background and watercolored everything.  Note that in the sky, after it had dried I went back in and added stars using a white gel pen. I just love little touches like that!


The fox is standing to the side, with another one of the great sentiments from Warmest Wishes underneath him.  


A great winter birthday card!  Or leave off his scarf for a year round project!

Thank You For The Gift Card

I don't know about you, but I can never have enough thank you cards around the holidays, and this easy little number is just the thing to keep on hand.


I die-cut the white card front accent piece using the Tipped Tops die, then stamped it with one of the gorgeous borders from Fair Isle Borders.  By keeping it simple and just using a few different colors, there is some great visual appeal with little effort!


I cut away a portion of the card front accent to add a sentiment from Keep It Simple: Gift Thanks underneath in True Black.  I also wrapped it with a bit of white crochet thread, finished in a bow.

Quilted Winter Tag

Last up in the new Quilted: Winter set.  This snowflake block pattern is simply gorgeous and has all kinds of possibilities!


The quilt block was cut from white cardstock, pieces removed and stamped with Ocean Tides and Simply Chartreuse.


I created a card base using the new Tag Sale: Quilted die just past the fold of the card.  Then adhered a separate die cut tag to the cover to get the hole at the top.
