Greetings from the North Pole

Hello!  I have a snowman themed card to share today featured over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  The die set used on my card is from the Christmas Part 1 dies.  There is also a brand new release of Christmas Part 2 dies.  Between the two new Christmas die releases, there is something for everyone!
I created a snowy background for my card with some Oxide Ink, a sprinkling of water and some white paint splatters.  The die cut pieces are from the Snowmen w/Fence die set.
Once I dressed up my snowmen in their hats and scarves, I located my long forgotten Peachy Keen Stamps (Frosty Friends Face Assortment) and used them for the snowmen faces.  A bit of inking and chalk added some dimension to the snowmen.
I created a pole for my sentiment to add a bit of character to the snowy scene.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Merry & Bright stamp set.  I used my paper trimmer and a punch to cut out the pieces.
The pole with the sentiment was adhered to my card base and layered with a bit of solid card stock at the bottom of my card.
Next,  I placed the first snowman on the right side of my card and then added the taller snowman at the center of my card.
The third snowman fit perfectly between the taller snowman and the pole with the sentiment directly above.
To finish off the snowy scene, I adhered the picket fence directly above the solid card stock.
Here is the die set used on my card, available in the store:

From Our House to Yours

Hello!  Today I'm sharing this winter card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  This card was created with one of the new sets from the Christmas die release. The Santa Over Christmas Town die is so versatile for creating winter themed cards.
I cut out all of the pieces in white card stock to create a winter wonderland scene.  The snow border was fussy cut.  The background was created with some Oxide Inks and white paint splatters for a snowy look.
I accented the die cuts with some Stickles to add sparkly details to the the plain white pieces. The snow border was stamped with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms (retired) A Holiday to Remember stamp set.
To create my winter wonderland scene, I adhered the snow border at the base of my card.  Santa's sleigh and the reindeer were anchored above.
I filled in the edges of my card with the trees and placed the house in between the trees.
The snowflakes were the finishing accents on my card.  I cut one of the snowflakes in half and adhered a half to each side of my card.

Fall Card

Hello!  Today I have a fall themed card to share which was created with the Momenta Fall Cut & Embossing Template.  I used the embossing folder for the wood grain pattern on the kraft card stock. A bit of ink was rubbed over the wood grain to make it pop.
I created the "Fall" sentiment with the Alphabet Uppercase Cutting Template and adhered it on some solid card stock.  The leaves anchored the sentiment.  A bit of jute was tied to the leaves as a finishing accent.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Cookies for Santa

Hello!  Today I'm sharing this holiday card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  The Baking Reindeer die is one of the most adorable sets in the new Christmas die release.
I used colored card stock to cut out all of the pieces and inked them on the edges.  I added some chalk to the cheeks of the reindeer.  A couple of extra bowls and a spoon were cut out to be used as embellishments.
I put together my card base and a Stitched Square which was accented with some Krafty Red Trendy Twine.  The Stitched Square was layered on some burgundy card stock.  The border strip was punched with the Fiskars Scallop Sentiment punch.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms (retired) A Holiday to Remember stamp set.  I also hand cut a basic flag in some polka dotted paper.
I put together my card base by placing the scalloped border along the edge of my card.  The square was added on top with the hand cut flag tucked underneath.
The Baking Reindeer fit perfectly inside the square.  The extra set of bowls with the spoon were added to the bottom of my card.
The sentiment was the finishing accent on the bottom of my card for a cohesive look.

Celebrate Card

Hello!  Today's project was one of those 5 minute cards which came together very quickly.  I used the beautiful Metallic Ink 8.5x11 Paper Pad for the background of my card.  The shaded paper with the splashes of metallic gold was perfect for my celebratory card.
The flower border was cut with the Momenta Flower Border Cutting Template and layered with a sentiment from the Hello Fetti Cutting Template.  I added the sentiment to a strip of vellum.  A few sequins were sprinkled on the base of my card as a finishing accent.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a nice day!

Winter is Warmer Together!

Hello!  I'm sharing a fun card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog created with the new Christmas Dies.  I fell in love with the adorable Skiing Gnomes and wanted to create a card with both of them.
I found the snow themed paper in my stash which is the perfect background for my card.  I cut out the sweet gnomes and put them together.  The snow mounds were cut out three times.
The snow mounds were trimmed and accented with Stickles.  I added a strip of solid white card stock to the bottom of card base and layered it with the snow mounds.
Once I created the snowy scene, the first gnome was placed at the bottom of the snow hill.  The second gnome was anchored above the snow slope.
The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Merry Kissmas stamp set and was stamped on a hand cut flag.
Here's the die set used on my card, available in the shop:

May the Joys of the Season Be With You

Hello!  Today I have another card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage blog featuring the new Christmas dies.  This sweet winter scene was created with the Polar Bears w/Birch Trees die set.
I kept all of my die cuts very basic using white card stock with a pop of colors on the polar bears. The frame is from Nested Stitched Scallop Rectangle set.  I gave the die cuts a bit of inking on the edges to keep them from blending into the background.
I used a polka dotted pattern my card base and inked the white rectangle frame with some Oxide Ink.
The Winter scene was pulled together inside the frame with the polar bears at the focal point.  I trimmed the snow mounds so they would fit perfectly in the rectangle.  The tiny heart was adhered on one of the birch trees.
The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Merry Kissmas stamp set.  The sentiment was accented with a small twine bow created with some Totally White Trendy Twine.

A Christmas Wish Just for You!

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a project over on the Scrapping Cottage blog created with the new Christmas dies.  There are 25 new dies in this collection and they are perfect for those Christmas creations and they are all on sale right now!
I went with a traditional color palette for my card pulling the colors from the beautiful patterned paper.
The die cuts are from the Christmas Car & Trailer set.  I mixed in some additional patterned papers from my stash for the details on the car & trailer.  I also cut the oval for the background in white card stock from the Double Stitched Oval set.
As I was thinking of my card design, I found a fun sentiment in my stash from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Merry Kissmas stamp set.  I also cut out a frame for my sentiment using the coordinating card stock.  The white oval was given a splash of color with some Oxide Inks.
I pulled my card base together and layered it with the oval which would eventually frame the scene on my card.  The shaded oval helped to mute the fun and vibrant colors of my card.
The trees were placed to the right of the oval frame.  The layering of the trees created a bit of dimension behind the car & trailer.
The sentiment fit perfectly above the Christmas scene which was the final accent on this festive card.

Scarecrow Card

Hello!  Today I have a fall card to share over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  I'm excited for fall which is just around the corner.  It is definitely my favorite time of year and I absolutely love crafting for the holidays!
When I selected the papers for my card, I wasn't sure how well they would work together even though they were in the same paper stack. However, with the coordinating die cuts, everything pulled together perfectly for a cheerful fall theme.
I used the Harvest Scarecrow, Double Stitched Rectangle Set and the Circle Set dies to cut out all of the elements for my card.  I inked the circle with some Fossilized Amber Oxide Ink.  Each of the die cuts were also inked on the edges for added dimension.
I built my card base by layering the rectangle frame at an angle.  The inked circle was placed over the rectangle to break up the pattern.
The scarecrow was centered on my card base and surrounded by the large sunflowers.  All of the details in this die set created the perfect fall scene.
The plump pumpkins were the finishing accents.  I opted not to add a sentiment on my card so as to not distract from all of the details on my card.
