The soft blanket of snow that covered the yard last week is so beautiful and always makes me want to cozy up in my craft room and do a little creating. Today I have two new cards to share with you using the Simple Stories Winter Farmhouse collection!
Not only is the Winter Farmhouse collection perfect for your winter projects, but they are lovely for your holiday creations as well! If you’re looking for a collection WITHOUT Santa and his elves, or you just want the versatility to bounce back-and-forth from holiday projects to winter projects, this collection is a great choice!
On this first card, I used the papers from the 6×8 paper pad to build up my background. I then layered up several of the Journal Bits & Pieces and added the adorable red house from the Chipboard Sticker Sheet. A sprinkling of deep yellow enamel dots adds a bit of shine.
I couldn’t help but feature the mitten banner from the Chipboard Stickers on this second card! They are so cozy and CUTE! Again, I used the 6×8 Paper Pad to build up my background and then added a cluster of Journal Bits & Pieces die cuts and a red chipboard house in the bottom right corner.
There’s nothing like creating cards on a snowy day as you listen to Christmas music and enjoy a mug of hot cocoa. These cards will be perfect to send as a holiday greeting or to warm up someone’s heart in January if they are feeling bogged down by the winter blues.
I hope you’ll take the time to treat yourself to a quiet afternoon of creating this winter. It’s the perfect remedy for a cold, winter day!
Faith, trust, and pixie dust! Set out on a card making adventure with the Lost In Neverland collection! I sat at my desk to play with this collection and couldn’t stop. I have six “Darling” cards to share with you today.
Tinkerbell, herself, is here to take you on your magical journey! I cut her out using the Tinkerbell die set with shimmer cardstocks by Carta Bella Paper. I doubled up her vellum wings to allow her to flutter about.
The Peter Pan Ephemera tag is captain of the Jolly Roger on this card. Just use your imagination and think happy thoughts and you will be on your way to dreamland!
For this card I created a waterfall of circles with a scene. I love how you can almost follow the story line as you follow each picture from top to bottom.
I anchored the Lost Boy sticker, along with the teepee, on a series of concentric punched circles for a simple, yet striking design. A sprinkling of enamel dots adds dimension and shine.
I used the Hello Baby Boy Shining Stars embossing folder to emboss a night sky on Navy Shimmer cardstock for the background of this card. I love how the Darling children are holding hands as they experience pixie dust for the first time. A tiny, chipboard Tinkerbell provides a never-ending supply of fun.
Stacked, die cut rectangles anchor the characters on this fun card. How cute is Sleeping Nana drifting in the top left corner?!
I hope you enjoyed this trip to Neverland today! What magic will you be creating in your craft room this week?

Thanks for coming by!
Momenta contacted me and sent me a few of their products to play with recently; a rainbow of foil-dotted doilies, an adorable rainbow die set, and beautifully-detailed feather stamps. How fun! Thank you, Momenta!
I pulled out a sheet of mint solid paper and mint ink and set to work creating my own background paper with the feather stamps.
I began with the largest feathers first and then filled in the open spaces with the smallest feathers.
I used my feather paper along with the rainbow dies to create this fun card below!
I die cut the rainbow in a variety of colors and then added delicate vellum clouds.
Rainbows are the perfect way to wish someone a Happy Day … especially during springtime!
