Happy Holidays | 2022


Happy Holidays, everyone!

“Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love”

– Hamilton Wright Mabie

I don’t think you could find a more perfect description for this time of year. It truly is magical.

Today I’m sharing the Holiday card I made for our family and friends.  It’s a mash-up of some of my favorite supplies, and a healthy dose of inspiration from one of my favorite designers – Inge Groot.

To make this card:

1. Die cut and assemble the tag. I used patterned paper for mine, but you could stamp or stencil it too!

2. Stamp the puppy and ornament in Copic-friendly ink, then color them with Copic markers and die cut them.

3. Die cut a few snowflakes (I used 3 on this card).

4. Cut a background panel slightly smaller than your card base, ink blend the edges, and stamp your sentiment at the bottom.

5. Add some shiny elements by using Glossy Accents on the ornament and a black glaze pen for the noses, eyes, and feet on the puppy.

6. Once the shiny elements are dry (I let mine dry overnight), assemble all your pieces on your card base!

Thank you for taking a few minutes out of your Holiday season to visit my blog! I hope you like this card and, no matter what holiday you’re celebrating this season, I hope it is filled with love, joy, and peace!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

designer & content creator

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
