Tis the Season...

YAY! for Friday and we are getting closer to Thanksgiving. How many of you are cooking all the fixings this year? My husband and I are going out for Thanksgiving. It is just the two of us and well cooking all that food is just nuts for us. I do not like leftovers and that is every leftover. I know weird... right? I used to like making turkey sandwiches after Thanksgiving. I guess that just changed over the years. So since I am not a big Thanksgiving person, I am sharing more Christmas. I have lots of Christmas crafty supplies, so I am trying to ink them all up...

Today's card was created using Taylored Expressions:

Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Cut a panel A2 size and stamp the center image (Santa). Create a mask using Gina. K Masking Magic using the coordinating dies. Peel the mask and put into place so we can stamp the rest of the images.  Stamp the remaining images onto your card. 

Die cut mask for the remaining images that you stamped using the coordinating dies and Gina K. Masking Magic. Peel and put into place. 

Lay the first stencil from the Let It Snow stencil set and blend the Pinkfresh Studio Summer Shower ink. Once you are done remove the stencil.

Add the second Let It Snow stencil and ink blend the Pinkfresh Studio Berrylicious ink. Remove stencil when done. 

You will see some blind spots on your background so let's fill it in with the stencils. Pick some of the snowflakes and filling the blanks.

Peel your mask from the images and color using your favorite medium. I colored mine with Copic Sketch markers.

To finish we will add a Silver Glitter drops on every snowflake that has a center showing. The Silver Glitter drops come in many sizes so pick the appropriate size for each snowflake. Adhere them down using liquid glue that dries clear. I used Bearly Arts Precision Craft Glue

Take a small blending brush and lightly add ink all around your card using Pinkfresh Studio: Seaside. Use a light hand when adding the ink. 

Adhere your panel to your card base using liquid glue

A very simple Christmas card and I might add fun. I just love these images and I believe last time I looked they were on sale. But don't hold me to that...

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a wonderful Friday.


  1. So cute and very jolly! I'm cooking, but just four of us this year, phew! A turkey sandwich and a slice of pumpkin pie the day after is as good as the Thanksgiving meal to me, maybe better!

  2. Lovely card! I love your use of a masking technique and stenciled background.


Thank you so much for your lovely Comments..
Happy Crafting
