Joyful Holly Card

Joyful Holly The Creative Inkster
Joyful Holly Stamp Set #153440 $23.00

Today’s card is from Glenda Mollet and features a stamp set I totally overlooked in the Aug-Dec Mini catalogue! For $23, this stamp set with 2 greetings and the versatile holly and ivy stamps is perfect for making your own patterns. This would be GREAT for making holiday placemats or wrapping paper. As a two-step stamp, it’s a snap to stamp the outline then insert the leaves. Gorgeous card, Glenda! Thanks for sharing.

3D Christmas Tree

Stitched Triangles Dies The Creative Inkster
Stitched Triangles Dies #152710 $48.00

You can tell we’ve got the holidays on the brain with these latest posts. What I want to point out with this card are two things: 1) The tree could totally be hearts or pumpkins or apples or any other shape that you can make 3D by adhering several punched shapes together and 2) 3D cards are easy to make, right? In this case, there were 3 die cut triangles as the trees that fold flat for mailing and “fluff” up for the 3D look.

My thanks to Diane Hutchinson from Alberta who designed this card and sent it to me. A really versatile layout! 

Trimming the Town

Trimming the Town DSP The Creative Inkster
Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper #153491 $15.75

A simply pretty holiday card! On this one, the die used cuts the inside of the tree out as shown. If you want it to also cut out the tree shape, use the matching dies in the “In The Pines” die set. The paper is from “Trimming the Town” one of our papers going on sale in October! Stay tuned for more details on the sale.

Banner Year for All Year Round cards

Banner Year Stamp Set
Banner Year Stamp Set #153464 $23.00

When I make cards, I usually grab a stamp set and make at least 4 different cards using that set. Partly as a demonstrator so I can show the versatility of the set and partly because I want to make sure I get the most I can out of the investment! These 6 cards all use the same set and boy versatility is the name of the game here! Lots of small images (29 total stamps in the set) that cover everyday, fall, Christmas, Hallowe’en and even Valentine’s Day. The stamp set is Banner Year and it’s a great bargain at $23. Hope you like them!
