Paper Piecing | Essentials by Ellen

When I first saw the North Pole Greetings Stamp set, I immediately thought of a postcard. I also thought about the fun patterns that you can color up the letters with. I’m terrible at that, so I rummaged around and pulled out a pack of holiday patterned paper and it was perfect — plus even better, I had scraps which I used for the main sentiment!

Stamping at Once | Ink Blot Shop

Most of the time my sentiments are the last thing on my cards — but here, I stamped everything all at once to make sure that I have it placed properly. It helps set up where I want to stencil my partial background for a one layered card.

Ombre Stamping | Honey Bee Stamps

Make a card with me! I’m using this solid, floral stamp set to create a Thank You card. I aimed to go with fall colors… I’m not sure I achieved that but I really love how it came out. I also pulled out a piece of cardstock from a paper pad to anchor my card along with one of my already foiled sentiments to finish it off.

Bright Colors | Trinity Stamps

Summer and watermelons. They just go together. This looks like a complicated card but it’s not. I just used this awesome One in Melon stamp and die combo to put this card together. I was scared about using “Christmas” colors but I think everyone knows this is watermelons!
