Swap Card Sunday – All the Halloween Stamps!

Swap Card Sunday

Welcome to my final “Halloween Card” Swap Card Sunday.  Next week I’ll start sharing some fall-themed cards.  I giggled a little when I grabbed my final pile of Halloween swap cards to share.  I couldn’t believe it – they use all six Halloween-themed stamp sets featured on pages 51 – 55 of the Holiday Catalog.  That’s kinda rare.  Usually one or two sets quickly become the “popular kids”.  But, not this year!  All of the sets are great!  And the coordinating accessories are especially yummy from enamel dots to glimmer paper to foiled specialty Designer Series Paper!  Oh my!  I hope some of today’s cards inspire you on whatever projects you may make this season.

Keep it Simple Saturday – Presents & Pinecones

Keep it Simple Saturday

Congrats!  You made it through another week!  Let’s celebrate with another Keep it Simple Saturday Card featuring the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper.  I keep seeing this idea all over Pinterest!  I just had to make my own version.  Now, I’ll warn you – it’s probably a little more involved than a Keep it Simple Saturday card should be, but it’s still a REALLY simple layout that can be adapted so many different ways.

Keep it Simple Saturday! Kristin shows you how to make this quick and simple Christmas Card.

Now, this may not be the most postal friendly card with that cute little copper pinecone attached.  But, I’m head-over-heels in love with those little embellishments!  I think they’ll look super cute attached to gift tags and treat bags and more!  And, I think this card would look great without the pinecone – or even without the linen thread!

I decided I wanted to jazz up my top layers by adding a second strip of Whisper White cardstock between the top layer and the Designer Series Paper.  I could have just as easily left it off.  But, I thought that extra layer added just a bit more.  So many options!!!

Do you recognize the greeting?  It’s from the Tin of Tags stamp set that coordinates with my FAVORITE tag kit pictured on pages 32 and 33 of the Holiday Catalog.  I made the tags back in August and they’re so fun and easy to assemble.  And they come in a fabulous gift tin.

I’m in Love with Totally Trees

Have you even spotted the Totally Trees stamp set in the Holiday Catalog?  I think a lot of people overlook this fun two-step stamp set.  However, today’s card was one of the first (if not the first) cards I made when my Holiday Catalog products arrived in August.  YES!  I designed today’s card for a swap.  I realized I haven’t shared this card with you – and I even had the tutorial already typed up!  That was a super fun surprise for me!  YAY!

Love the fall color combo on this card by Kristin Kortonick. Stamped with the Totally Trees stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Do you want to make a guess what all of that wrapped up twine is peeking out of the focal point?  It’s not Linen Thread!  It’s not the new Kraft Rope Twine.  You may be thinking – what’s left?  How about the threads from the burlap ribbon!  Yep!  I thought Linen Thread was too fine.  And that Kraft Rope Trim is great, but a little thick for that kind of layering.  I hope you’ll watch the video to see how I did that!
