Penguin Christmas Card

Christmas Card, The Alley Way Stamps

Happy holidays, crafty friends. Today I’m on the Alley Way Stamps blog sharing a festive penguin Christmas card. Nothing says the holidays quite like a festive penguin. Am I right?

Anyways, as always I have a how-to video to share for the card. You can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

I really like the Penguins on Parade set because it’s so versatile. I used the exact same stamp set to create a Halloween card not too long ago.

Video: Last Minute Holiday Card

Cards, Christmas Card, Holiday Card, The Alley Way Stamps

Welcome! Today I’m over on the Alley Way Stamps blog sharing another holiday card.

Just like I’ve been doing all season, this one is easy and quick, and perfect for any last minute cards you may need. You can watch my how-to video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

Like I mentioned, this card was a breeze to create, but it still allows me to pass along a little token of handmade love over this holiday season.

Season’s Greetings | Poinsettia Card with TAWS

Cards, Christmas Card, The Alley Way Stamps

Season’s greeting crafty friends! Today I’m on the Alley Way Stamps blog sharing a Christmas card.

You can watch my how-to video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

Since my card is fairly simple, I wanted to make sure that I incorporated some small details. To cut the round shape at the bottom of the card base, I traced a bowl and then used scissors to cut the curve and around the poinsettias. If you had a round die you could use that to partially cut the curve.

Colour Me! Challenge – Be Joyful

Cards, Christmas Card, Holiday Card

Welcome! Today is a sad day because it’s the Colour Me Challenge’s final challenge. This week marks challenge #100, so it’s time to wrap up. This week is a monochromatic challenge using sky blue.

CMCC100

I of course have a how-to video to share with you, but before I get to that I’d like to just tell you how the Colour Me challenge brightened my life.

If you’re a regular follower of my blog, or YouTube channel, you’ll know that I’m fairly new to the crafting game. About two years ago, I had been experimenting with cardmaking and wanted to start playing along with the CMCC. The CMCC has always been a place of positivity and support and it gave me enough confidence to spread my wings and participate in other areas of the online cardmaking community. It was also the first ever design team that I contributed to. My experience with the CMCC has inevitably coloured the way I have continued on my cardmaking journey,  and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have participated in such a positive voice.

Now, onto my card for this week. As with most monochromatic cards, I like to use the colour sparingly so that it doesn’t overpower the card. You can see how I created my card below, or over on my YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for dropping by this week. I hope to see you playing with us over at the Challenge.
