DT Post by Lisa - Beautiful Textured Cards!


Happy Monday!! I hope you had a very happy Christmas!! Lisa here to share a few last Christmas cards with you today :)


For these cards, I wanted the texture to be the focal point. The tag is a Tiny Tags die and the layers were adhered with foam tape. The sentiment is from the Tiny Tags Christmas stamp set. It was heat embossed with red embossing powder.


The cards are secured with a belly band that slips off so you can open the card to reveal...


...the beautiful sentiment from the Christmas Chalkboard stamp set. It was also heat embossed with red embossing powder.

For more details, please visit my blog, A Mermaid's Crafts.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Happy New Year :)

DT Post by Kate - Adorable Rudolph!


Hello everybody! This is Kate from Small Bits of Paper with a fun card to share with you today. If you're like me, this is a busy week with food preparations for Christmas tucked in between visits with family and friends. I did sneak in a bit of crafting time this weekend and this is the card I created.


Before embossing my background, I stamped it using one of the Tiny Tags Christmas sentiments. The Sizzix Snowflakes folder works wonderfully well with the Tiny Tags sentiments as the stamps fit just perfectly inside the largest snowflake. Once I had finished assembling the mats, I popped Rudolph onto my card. So quick and easy, bright and fun - perfect for these busy days!

DT Post by Lisa - Cute mini cards!


Happy Monday and happy holidays!! Only a few more days before Christmas...I hope you have all of your shopping and preparations nearly complete!! Lisa here and I have a few quick Christmas cards to share with you today :)


These cards are small...they measure 2 3/4 x 3 3/4...perfect to tuck inside a gift bag or stocking. For this card, I used the 'Tis The Season...' sentiment from the O Holy Night stamp set.


'O Christmas Tree' is also from the O Holy Night stamp set, and it was heat embossed with black embossing powder.


'Noel' is from the Tiny Tags Christmas set. It was heat embossed in gold embossing powder. These were quick and easy to mass produce and are flat enough to mail...though I did add a bit of dimension on all three cards :)

Guest Design Post by Debbie!


Debbie here from Craftin' Chaos sharing my last projects with the October Release. It has been really fun and lots of great products to work with. I used several stamp sets & a die set that are listed below.  Its pretty gloomy here and taking a picture is challenging as I do not have my photo area set up yet. So the picture doesn't do justice to the stamped area. I also used the silver paper I love around the sentiment but it really doesn't show up well here and neither do the sequins. 


I used the curvy box for the first project (link below) from MCS.


The sentiment is Christmas Chalkboard set.


I used the Bow file from the Present Box SVG file for the project below (links below). I created the file for the coffee cup holder and I think it turned out pretty cute. I used new papers my friend sent me to add the layers of pattern paper to it. I hung the "Tiny Tag" from the top and Love those tiny tags.




I thank Kimberly for asking me to Guest for the entire release and appreciate the opportunity. It was so fun to play with the stamps and I loved each set I used!
