Winter Scene | Penguin Palace Stamps

One layer cards are my favorite to create and the wintery ones are so fun because I just love the random colored skies with snowflakes! I used an easy technique to show off the snow activities as well and I think it really adds to the entire card!

Winter Card | Honey Bee Stamps

The holiday season is coming to an end but that doesn’t mean you still can’t use your holiday sets… If you change up the colors you use, you can stretch your stamps for a new type of card. I’ve used this set in traditional red and green colors but now I’m using blues and it has a completely different look!

Silhouette Stamping | Pretty Pink Posh

Most images are meant for coloring but some can be used for silhouettes and that’s exactly what I did here. I love ink blending and I created a little scene for Santa leading up to Christmas! It’s a super easy technique and no masking for those images is required! Disclaimer: I did mask the Santa but it was worth it!

Monotone Card | Essentials by Ellen

Here’s a super easy idea for a monotone card with a bit of ink blending to add something extra to it. No coloring required and it makes for easy mass production. Also, this set works so perfectly because it doesn’t need to be a Christmas card, just a winter one.

Ink Blending Spotlight | Streamside Studios

Stencil Design | Erin Lee Creative

This is a very simple but elegant stencil that can be the focal point of any card but I couldn’t help step it up. I split the paper in quarters and then rotated the design around the center point. Of course, it was perfect for a rainbow array of colors.
