At Target the other day and I see Sugar Cookie Kisses…..Yes please! Omg you all they were AMAZING and gone within a few days! Heavenly!!! Accepting all Sugar Cookie Kisses this season! 🙂 I also have this cute Peppermint Kisses card to share with you today!!!
I got this card idea from the amazing, Kim Peck!!! It uses the Gingerbread and Peppermint Suite!!! You can check out more cards using this Suite here.
I started with a Real Red card base! Next, I took 2 pieces of Basic White measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″ – one for the front and one for the inside! I added a piece of the Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Paper along the left hand side and stamped the greeting from the Frosted Gingerbread Stamp Set up top! NOTE: If you wish to stamp first, just make sure it is a bit off center since it is centered in the area after the designer paper is placed down!
For the kisses, I stamped 3 of the ornament baubles in Real Red Ink onto Basic White cardstock and then die cut them out! Then I flipped them upside down and placed the 2 on the bottom of the card front with the scallop at the bottom edge of the white cardstock. Using the cardstock as a guide, I trimmed off the tops of the ornaments to create a kiss! Next, I took the third ornament and trimmed less off so it looks bigger and placed it on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! To finish off the look, I added a little piece of White Crinkled Seam Binding to the tops of each one. I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the ribbon.
On the inside I decorated with a few of the peppermint candies from the stamp set and the greeting!!! I love the coordination of the front to the inside!
Distracted by cute things? Yeah me too! Squirrel….I might not be that bad but I do think they are super cute! I was so excited to use one in this adorable Fall card too!! Hilarious side story for you! When I was attending the Leaders Summit, the Leadership Team was all together on a video and they were sharing about their position with the company and stories. One of the questions was who gets off topic the most and they all agreed it was the Finance Guy and they even have a stuffed animal squirrel that they bring out when he goes off on a tangent. I laughed so hard and immediately thought of this post!
This card uses the Free Stamp Set of the Month for September – Banner Year!!! It’s so easy and super cute!!!
Each little square is 1 inch and I stamped various images from the Banner Year Stamp Set into each one. For the leaf, I used Mint Macaron and stamped the leaf twice without going back to the ink. The acorn was stamped in Crumb Cake, full strength for both. Then for the pumpkin, I used Cajun Craze and Early Espresso. That one is a 2 step stamped image. Finally, on the squirrel, I inked him up completely in Crumb Cake and then before stamping him down I inked just the tail in Early Espresso. There is enough gap between his tail and head to lightly touch the edge of the ink pad and ink just the tail!
When layering the squares onto the Crumb Cake square, place them all out and then pick up one at a time to adhere down. This helps with spacing. Then I layered that onto a piece of the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper. This all goes onto a piece of Very Vanilla that I stamped the greeting on the bottom in Early Espresso Ink! There are a couple different greeting options in this set that work perfectly! For the ribbon, I used the Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon which is so amazing! For the top card, I wrapped the ends to the back side. In the card above, I forgot to add the ribbon till the end so I just trimmed the ends for a diagonal look!
To finish off the card, I added a little wooden element from the In Good Taste Elements pack. There are lots of options in the pack so no worries about only having a few. You can make lots of these cards! Check out all of the supplies listed below to make your adorable Squirrel card!
Happy Wednesday! 1 more week till Christmas. I thought since it snowed this is a good card to share with you all! Now I’m chanting, let it melt! 🙂
This is a quick card that I created with a little bit of stamping and punching. Punching out cardstock that is….I’m not a violent person. 🙂
I started with a Shaded Spruce card base. Next, I stamped the snowflakes from the Snowman Season Stamp Set in Pool Party all over a piece of Whisper White. Before laying it on the card front, I added some of the Let It Snow Designer Paper (2″ x 5-1/4″) across the lower part.
For the greeting, I stamped it from the Snowman Season Stamp Set in Real Red Ink. Then using the Timeless Label Punch, I punched it out and added Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. Before adding it to the card front, I placed a piece of the Real Red Ruched Ribbon down and added the greeting on top. This adds a little bit of texture to the card. Since this ribbon is so wide, tying it would make a large knot of your card so using it this way makes it nice and flat.

Happy Monday!!! We are one week closer to Christmas and things seem to be getting crazier. Stamping is my getaway from the chaos and relaxing time of the day! What about you?? Check out this cute silly snowman card I made!
I got this card idea from Laura Milligan and just fell in love. It’s adorable and it’s simple! Thank you, Laura!!! We, Lauras, are pretty awesome! 🙂
I started with a Whisper White card base and added a layer of Real Red (4″ x 5-1/4″). Next, I took a 3″ x 4″ piece of the Let It Snow Designer Paper (stripes) and added it to the upper left corner. Using the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch, I punched another sheet of the designer paper for this adorable snowman. He is already cute, glittered, and ready to go. I layered a Basic Black circle behind him to make it pop a little more.
For the greeting, I stamped it from the Snowman Season Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. Then using the Banner Triple Punch, I added banner tips to the end. I actually recommend punching first and then stamping so you don’t end up cutting off your stamped greeting. The greeting was added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished it off with some of the Toile Tidings Glittered Enamel Dots. It’s perfect!!!
I hope you like this little silly snowman card as much as me. While the paper is no longer available to purchase. You can create this card if you already got your hands on it over the past few months! Here are some more samples too!
Check out these quick and simple cards for Christmas that can be made in no time at all. Just whip it up and send it out!!!
I used the Night Before Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stack for these cards! Simply cut a piece that is 5-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ and mix and match which side you use for each card! The paper pack states that these colors are used in the pack so you can pick those for the accent cardstock and ink color! Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Poppy Parade, Pretty Peacock, Very Vanilla
I ripped one edge of the cardstock to give the card a little bit of texture and fun! The greetings were both from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. This set is perfect for a large array of greetings that fit just about anywhere! I love it. To finish off the card, I added a few metallic pearls.

Happy Monday!!! It seems a bit odd to have a post on Christmas Cheer when it’s actually Thanksgiving Week but….. I still love your Thanksgiving but I have to work on my Christmas cards too!!!
This is one of those quick and simple cards that you can whip up in no time at all. It uses up every inch of your designer series paper too! You can even call it a One Sheet Wonder if you would like!
I started with a card base of Very Vanilla measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. I like to use this size when wrapping ribbon around my card because it uses less. Going around the card at 4-1/4″ is better than going around it at 5-1/2″. Although I went around it twice so who is really saving ribbon here?!?!?! Next, I cut the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper into 4″ x 4″ squares. This makes 9 squares from one 12″ x 12″ piece of designer paper! Great for making multiples!
Using the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, I added the greeting in the lower right corner. There are so many greetings in various sizes so it’s perfect to mix and match and have fun! Then I added some ribbon. The card up top uses the Real Red Curly Ribbon and this one here uses the Garden Green Double Stitched Ribbon. Another option is to use the other side of the designer paper which is Garden Green. There are lots of great ways to mix up this card to make it a little different but still use the same products!

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I sure did! My Mom came yesterday and we stamped her Christmas Cards!!! It was so much fun and a good time to catch up! Today, I’m sharing another samples using the Christmastime is Here Suite. Check out this Golden Goddess!!!
This card is just so elegant and beautiful! It would be perfect for a wedding card too!!! All white and gold and so amazing!
I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I embossed another piece of Whisper White with the Subtle Embossing Folder and added it to the front. Then with yet another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Christmas Rose in Gold Delicata Ink. Be sure to set it aside a bit to dry completely. I have found sometimes it smears if it isn’t fully dry. Once it is dry, I used the coordinating Roses Dies to die cut the rose and the greeting label. The greeting was also stamped in Gold Delicata!
To assemble, I flipped the rose over and added three little loops of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon. This stuff is just stunning! Using the Stampin’ Dimensionals to secure the ribbon and then all over the rest of the rose, I then added it to the card front! The greeting was also added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. You know me and my love for those things. To finish it off, I added a few Gold Glittered Enamel Dots! LOVE!!!!

I started with a Mossy Meadow card base. Next, I layered on a piece of the Christmastime is Here Designer Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″) onto Soft Sea Foam (4″ x 5-1/4″). Then added those layers to the card front.
For the greeting, I die cut the label using the coordinating Roses Dies and stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler Ink. The greeting is from the Christmas Rose Stamp Set. I felt the greeting didn’t pop enough so I layered this onto some Cherry Cobbler cardstock and cut out a little layered look. Since the lines are straight, this wasn’t that hard. To finish it off, I added a little piece of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon to the back, securing it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, I used images from the Christmas Rose Stamp Set to stamp along the top and bottom. This greenery look is perfect for Christmas time! It was stamped in Mossy Meadow and the greeting in Cherry Cobbler! You could always add some of the greenery to the envelope as well! 🙂 Such a fabulous card that is super quick since you are letting the designer paper do all of the work and steal the show!
