Happy New Year

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today and I'm happy to be working with these lovely stamps and Clip Art Sheets from Paper Wings Productions.

I've used the Vintage Clip Art Sheet to create the backgrounds.  This clip art sheet contains 11 images that can be used individually or mixed together.

I've used the Happy clear stamp set which includes the large happy word and 4 additional words that can be used together.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Home is Where I'm With You

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! Pam here today. As we rush through the hustle and bustle this time of year, I wanted to stop and reflect on what's important to me.  So this project using the Home Cling Stamp from Paper Wings Productions was just perfect. 

The Home sentiment was stamped in Versafine Black ink and covered with clear embossing powder.

To create the "skylike" background I used Ranger Distress Inks and a bit of Hero Arts Unicorn White spray. 

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year!
Embrace Imperfection!

Happy New Year shaker card

Hello! It's Ashley with my last card this year! This one is a shaker card wishing you a happy New Year!
I made my card base with gold embossing powder, a stencil, and embossing paste. Next I made my shaker - I use old page protectors and my Fuse tool. I threw in a bunch of sequins and the Happy New Year confetti I made.

I used the Say It Winter Greeting stamp set to stamp 'happy new year' and then I cut the words apart to make confetti. I added those into the pocket with my sequins and sealed it up with my Fuse.
Here's a close up of the shaker:
Shaker cards are fun because you can make them any size or shape and you can throw in just about anything! I recently made a Christmas one you can check out HERE.

Black and White Christmas Cards

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today and I'm happy to be working with these lovely stamps from Paper Wings Productions.

This stamp is from the Winter Cling Stamp Set.

I wanted to keep everything black and white so I stamped the image in black ink on white cardstock.  After fussy cutting the image, I matted it with black cardstock and fussy cut it again.

I added some ribbon to soften the cards.  I love the black and white effect.
Thanks for stopping by today.

wishing you merry Christmas shaker card

Hi, it's Ashley here today and I'm sharing a Christmas shaker card that I think is super cute! To start, I used a polka dot stencil and distress inks for my card base. Next, I used a circle die to cut out the center of my card.
Then I started working on my sentiment for the inside of the card. I used the Fall Mix It Up stamp set to stamp 'wishing you' and Say It Winter Greetings stamp set for 'merry Christmas.' I heat embossed 'merry' with green embossing powder and I love the font for 'Christmas.'
My final step was to finish the shaker card. Using the Fuse tool makes shaker cards super easy! I added some sequins, a little resin piece, and then I stamped an ornament and some stars from the Winter Wood Cuts stamp set, fussy cut those, and threw them in there too. Here's my finished card:

Thanks for looking! :)

Merry Christmas

Hello friends. Larissa back with you today. I used a few different stamp sets for this card. Being from San Antonio I thought this was a perfect card for me to send to some of my out of state friends.

I used:
Say it Winter Greetings Clear Stamp Set 
San Antonio Clear Stamp Set 

I stamped the image of the Alamo on the card first and masked it off. I then stamped the San Antonio skyline stamp behind it both of these stamps are from the San Antonio set.  I left the mask on the Alamo and Stamped the two trees from the Build A Scene set. To finish off the trees I took the small light set from Holiday Ad Ons and stamped them across each one. I colored the images using Copic markers.

The greeting is two different sets as well. The Merry Christmas is from the Say it Winder Greetings set and then the "From the Alamo City" came from the San Antonio set. It actually says greetings from the Alamo city. I just cut off the word "greetings".

To finish off the card from I added a few red sequins and matted it on a piece of red cardstock and then adhered it to a white card base, 

I have already stamped a few more of these card fronts to get in the mail. This is a perfect "from San Antonio" card.

Thank you for stopping my today. Don't forget to check back to see what the amazing design team girls create for you.

Have a wonderful day friends.
