Back to the Basics Handmade Cards

Basic Card Making

Hello Friends,

Sometimes it's fun to simply go Back to the Basics and make cards the way that we did in the beginning, nothing fussy, just beautiful handmade cards.  So today, I went Back to the Basics and made 3 Cards with some of my Free Stuff. 


Basic Card Making

That's right, both my stamp set and my gorgeous paper were Free with January-February Sale-a-Bration 2021!  During Sale-a-bration (January and February 2021) choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration product with every $50 or $100 you spend (before tax and shipping).  


Basic Card Making

You will notice that I started each card with a Thick Basic White Card Base, then layered it with a 4" x 5-1/2" piece of Paper Blooms Designer Paper.  After that each card is a little different.  I stamped different sentiments from the Heal Your Stamp Set.  I either simply cut a strip of paper to fit the sentiment or I framed the sentiment using a punch.  A little bit of Baker's twine and my cards were complete!

Child's Play Gnome For the Holidays

Gnome for the Holidays Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

I love hanging out with my grandchildren.  Five of our grandchildren hung out at our house this past weekend.  It was so much fun.  Children really know how to enjoy the moment.  Oh, how I love the sounds of their laughter and joy as they play a game, help in the kitchen, or make a new craft project!  So for today's Make It In Minutes Card, I chose a card that involved stamping and coloring with the Gnome For Christmas stamps.  Yes, technically it did take more than minutes to make today's card, but I consider my time coloring to be playtime, so does it really count?


Gnome for the Holidays Stampin' Up!

The Gnome for Christmas has so many fun, whimsical images to color.  I chose happy bright colors such as Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, and Seaside Spray to keep the theme of my card playful.  Use your favorite coloring tools and just color.  It's very therapeutic.  My coloring tools of choice are my beloved Stampin' Blends.  After coloring, I simply cut a Poppy Parade mat and a Granny Apple Green Card Base.  I couldn't resist rounding a few corners with my Trio Punch.  After all, using punches is child's play.  I know that my Grandchildren love using Nana's punches.
