Echo Park Paper: Oh, Holy Night Card

I love how the Echo Park Paper Oh Holy Night collection captures the peace and serenity of the Christmas season. It’s the perfect collection for creating a card for that special someone on your holiday card list.

The focal point for this card is the fussy-cut angel and wreath cut from the 4×4 Journaling Cards paper. I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set to cut two panels of Christ Is Born paper (stars) and All Is Calm paper (maroon snowflakes).

Below the angel is a Bethlehem city scape cut from the Border Strips paper. A tan ribbon wrapped adorned with a button is wrapped around the bottom of the card to add softness.
I used the Gold Shimmer Cardstock to die cut the “Oh Holy Night” sentiment and Bethlehem star with the Oh Holy Night #2 Die Set. The subtle shimmer of this beautiful paper is the perfect finishing touch!

Wishing you a peaceful holiday season!

DCWV: Halloween Spirit Cards

Earlier this fall I shared a couple of projects using the Die Cuts with a View Premium Halloween Spirit paper pad.

I fell in love with this collection and couldn’t resist creating a few cards while everything was out on my desk!

The foil papers and stickers in this set make things feel so spooky, special, and FUN! I wish I could have captured them better in these photos!

I just HAD to feature this skeleton sticker on a tall narrow card! He’s dressed to impress at this costume party with his ribbon bow-tie!

This trio of ghosts look suspicious … somehow I think they have a few tricks up their sleeves, rather than treats!

Do you send cards for Halloween? If not, why not make a few to attach to a delicious treat for friends and neighbors?!

Echo Park Paper: A Trio of Hocus Pocus Cards

My favorite thing about Halloween is having all of the trick-or-treaters come to the door and seeing their cute costumes. The Hocus Pocus collection by Echo Park Paper has it’s own cute set of trick-or-treaters and I couldn’t wait to feature them on this set of Halloween cards!

I love how this first trick-or-treater has removed his skeleton mask … isn’t that what always happens on Halloween night? As you go about your route, it’s a bit hard to see where you are going, so you end up taking off the mask. Haha! He also reminds me a bit of my teen son … I think this card would be perfect for him!

This next card looks like we have walked right into a Halloween Costume party. The skeleton is showing off his best dance moves to his friend, the ghost, with a spider dangling overhead.

This mummy isn’t going to let Mr. Skeleton have all the fun! He has his own set of dance moves!
At the bottom of this card, I’ve added a die cut witch hat and boots from the Hocus Pocus die set. I had fun adding dimensional details, like the jewel on the hat and the laces for the boots.

What are your party plans this Halloween? Why not use a trio of trick-or-treater cards to invite your friends over for a celebration?


Happy Haunting!

American Crafts: Creating Colorful Birthday Cards with Stay Colorful

Hello, friends! I am ALWAYS running short on birthday cards around here … it only makes sense to have a Birthday Card Creating session to get caught up … don’t you think?! I pulled out the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful collection and got to work.
This collection is perfect for birthday cards with its happy vibe and cute characters! I came up with four cards to share with you today.

I created three A2-sized cards and one A7 card. Here is a look at the first A2 card featuring the darling ice cream truck.
I love the “Treat Yo Self” sentiment for this card, because birthdays are definite a time to treat ourselves and to splurge on yummy treats like cake and ice cream. I love the texture the texture the chipboard hearts add to this card!

This second card features the super-sweet unicorn sticker. I love her gold freckles on her muzzle and bottom. She and her bird friend look like they are ready to go celebrate with a night out on the town with the twinkling night sky behind them!
I used the 6×6 paper pad on this page, cutting a corner from the rainbow paper and a pink patterned heart to use as accents.

I used a large circle to punch out the sentiment from the 12×12 pad for the sentiment on this card. I love that the 12×12 pad includes lots of gold foiling on the patterns and makes this sentiment feel extra-special.
The colorful houses at the bottom of the card are anchored with a marbled patterned paper strip. I used foam squares to layer the pink house sticker on top of the house die cut for added dimension. A sprinkling of gems adds a sparkling touch!

I love the toucan riding the bike die cut on this last card. His kitty friend looks like she is having a blast being pulled in the cart. I drew and cut out the cloud shape in the background so that I could mimic the unique shape of the bike. I embossed it with a striped embossing folder from my stash (Cuttlebug James’ Set) and then matted it again on the coral patterned Peace Sign paper. A strip of Lemon Textured cardstock anchors the chipboard sentiment.

I can’t wait to send these cards out! They are sure to put a smile on the faces of my friends and family. A hand-crafted card is a surefire way to let them know they are important to me!
