Christmas Card – Stretch Your Stamps by Claire

Change of Address Cards by Sarah May

Hi everyone, Sarah’s turn on the blog today – I’m using it to share with you the card design I came up with to let mine and my husband’s extended family know ‘we have moved’.

Blue Foiled Dahlia Card by Laura

|

Welcome, my crafty friends! It’s Laura here with you today, and I’ve created a holiday card using Nuvo Gilding Flakes and the gorgeous Concord & 9th Dahlia Turnabout Stamp. While this stamp isn’t considered a “traditional” Christmas stamp, by changing the color and adding a little pizazz, that statement dahlia almost looks like a holiday wreath! The gilding flakes (and embossing powders) really takes a fairly simple design and makes it into an elegant holiday card.   Turnabout Stamping First … Read More
