You should have arrived here from Mona Toth's blog! I can't wait to check out her projects...love her style! If you didn't, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is Alexandra Stapleton-Smith's blog!

I have four cards to share with you today so let's get started!  I couldn't wait to team up the new Scrapbook.com Big and Bold Christmas set with their Ink Blending Tool with Domed Foam Applicators!  For my First card I combined Scrapbook.com - Premium Hybrid Ink - Ballet Slipper + Cardinal Red.



The sentiment has been stamped in Scrapbook.com's Black Hybrid Ink.  LOVE this black!

Here's my second card, same as the first but with the following inks:



Have you tried out Scrapbook.com's stamps?  They stamp beautifully!  Love how crisp the images are!  The domed Ink Blending tool makes it super easy to use the stencil!  In today's project, I've used Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz - Holiday Knit on the flat side of the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock.

Next up is a couple cards that feature the Scrapbook.com Nested Stars:


My first card shows three of the stars stacked.  I've teamed it up with the Believe sentiment from Big and Bold Christmas, stamped in Hybrid Black ink.  The snowflake + pattern paper is from the Echo Park Papers - A Perfect Christmas 12x12 kit.  It has been adhered to the design with  Double Sided Adhesive- Small Rounds.  I'm a big fan of Scrapbook.com's

Flat Card Front
Neenah,  Solar White 25 Pack

These are staples in my craft room!



Check out my final card:


Do you see what I did?  I cut the stars out of the card front panel and stacked them on my other card.  The sentiment is from Christmas Fun Card Sentiments, heat embossed with Hero Arts Gold.

  6. The sweater background is just wonderful, in both color schemes. My aunt made me a hat for Christmas when I was about 9. I snuck to see what was inside the package, and was disappointed that it was a handmade hat. Now I would LOVE to get a hand made hat!!!

  7. Love the bold plaid. Getting
    several cards from one die cut
    is great. The sweater background
    on the first cards is so warming.
    I look forward to
    getting my Santa’s out of storage
    and putting them on the mantle.
    Takes awhile. thanks for sharing

  10. Nice inspiration cards.

    Christmas is all about family. My husband and mines first christmas was a disaster I burnt the roast potatoes and the pigs in blankets but he laughed and said he knows I can cook. I laughed so hard I cried.

  13. Great cards!! I love the buffalo plaid ones! Every year I let my 3 kids pick a new ornament for the tree. Something that they think is neat. tamaratelena@gmail.com

  14. Super cute idea!!! Would love to see a tutorial video on this card ... if there was one I could not find it. Christmas for me is filled with so many memories. My favorite memory is being with my Grama and seeing what color her tree was each year … either traditional (multi color w/ silver icicles), or a Chrismon tree with white/gold ornaments (all of which were hand-made). This will be our 2nd Christmas without her. I would give anything to see her tree again (she was 102 the last time she put her tree up ... She would have been 104 on Dec. 3rd.) I miss her and all her traditions!

  30. Plaid signifies winter and holidays to me. Nice cards. Thank you for the ideas.
    My family spent many Christmas holidays at a hunting camp and the hunters often wore plaid flannel shirts for warmth when they went out in the field. So many memories of my brother and father who have passed away.

  31. Fantastic cards Amy! Such pretty and festive designs, love the tall format of the pink and blue cards! I hope to be able to actually put ornaments on the tree this year. Our cat is now 1 1/2 years old and maybe will not think of the tree as her personal playground. (yeah, we'll see how that goes)

  32. I like how you used the stars on two cards. when my family goes to look at lights we have to make noise as in ooohhh, ahhh. Then we vote on best lights. eva msevawalker@yahoo.com
