Hello,

Today's card is made using The Greetery's pinwheel party stencil, Papertrey's big basic: merry Christmas die, doodlebug design sprinkles and glitter paper.




I did the inlaid technique with the merry Christmas die after stenciling the pinwheels. I really like the look of this! These pinwheels are such a joy to make and so easy!  I hope Betsy does more of these types of stencils.

Today's card uses the stamp set Home Made, Love Lives Here and the Coverplate: Hearts Die, all from Papertrey Ink. I think the hardest part of making this card is lining everything up and although it is still not perfect I am happy with it:)

Below you can see that I glittered the red door, the green polka dotted curtains and the outdoor lights.  Since the sentiment said hang your heart I thought I…

I started with the crimped frame die and the frosted flakes stencil from The Greetery.




Next using the Amaryllis stamp and die from Papertrey Ink.  The sentiment is embossed and is also included in this set. This set of cards are pretty simple and straight forward to make, but if you have any que…

Next I die cut two fit to be tied bows and glued them together for …

I decided to start with the frosty flake stencil by The Greetery, using two different colors of ink, for each card, blueberry sky and hawaiian shores.  On the rest of the cards I did a different layout but used the same products and colors.




Winter Woods by Papertrey is where this cardinal came from.  I stamped him using pure poppy ink and versafine black ink with clear embossing powder. …

Hello friends and welcome to the Keeping Christmas Blog Hop!  Christmas is right around the corner and I have started to decorate our home with all the Christmas goodies!  It is always a short time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so much that I want to do and not enough time to get things done.  Doing the Keeping Christmas blog hop has helped me to get some cards and gifts done for Christmas, so thankful for that!

As most of you know Kelly Lunceford is the creator of Keeping Christmas.  Once a month the ladies on the team put together a card or a project to give you some inspiration on the 25th of each month during the blog hop.

I hope you enjoy these cards that I have made.




This first card that I  made uses some stamps and dies from The Greetery (the crimped frame die, frosty flakes stencil, with love at Christmas stamp and die).




The wreath card below is made using Papertrey Ink products ( deck the halls stamp and die, monthly moments journal card 7 die, and silver white winters…
