Yesterday I did the Rich Razzleberry monochromatic card and today I started out to do a red and white card Christmas card with the Bright & Beautiful stamp set, but decided to add an accent color so I grabbed Soft Sky. After I finished the card, I realized it was red, white, and blue, but I don’t think it looks like the 4th of July.

Bright & Beautiful Stars Handmade Christmas Card
The stars from the Bright & Beautiful stamp set coordinate with a few of the Stars Framelits Die so they are easy to cut out. The open Soft Sky star is made by nesting 2 of the Stars Framelits dies and running them through the big Shot.

The star border along the bottom was easily made with the Confetti Stars Border punch. This is a flexible layout that could be used for a variety of occasions.  All of the supplies can be found in my Online Store.

Do you like polka dots? I love them! With the new Polka Dot Embossing folder you can add these beautiful polka dots to any piece of paper or card stock. I paired the piece of Rich Razzleberry Sweet Taffy patterned paper with the white embossed card stock to create this fun card.

Hello There Close Up

I love this sentiment from the hostess set Hello There. I used a card sketch I ran across on the web (can’t remember where I found it) to create this card. After I picked out the patterned paper for one panel I decided to stick with the Rich Razzleberry color and go monochromatic.

Hello There Dotted Handmade Card

I like how the Rich Razzleberry Candy Dots add a little bit of interest and focus to the sentiment. Use this easy layout to create your quick cards.  All of the supplies can be found in my Online Store.

Have you noticed all the feathers being used in making handmade cards? Stampin’ Up! introduced the Four Feathers stamps and Framelits in the Holiday catalog and I have been having so much fun with them. Pair the feathers with Washi Tape and you have one of the hottest trends in paper crafting right now. Don’t miss my paper crafting tutorial video at the end of this post showing how I made this card.

Washi Tape Feather

The smaller feather is stamped right on to the card front as well as the “hello”. Be sure to do your stamping before you run the card through the Big Shot so you do not have to worry about a raised surface for stamping.

Washi Tape Feathers

This washi tape is the Color Me Autumn Washi which is new in the holiday catalog. Watch the video below to see how I put this card together. (You may have to go to my site to see the video if you are getting this post in a reader.) All of the supplies can be found in my Online Store.

I love these pumpkins from the Fall Fest set! Well I think I really love them because they have coordinating framelits and I do not have to cut them out with scissors.

Fall Fest Thankful For You Card

The Fall Fest set has these great pumpkins with a Framelit die that coordinates with each pumpkin so you do not have to cut them out or even mask them. Even the little leaf was cut out with a framelit. There are stamps for the leaves, but it is also great just to cut out the shapes.

Fall Fest handmade card with Good Greetings

The sentiment comes from the special Good Greetings set that is available through the end of October. This set has so many great sentiments for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and general sentiments. To receive this set you must place a qualifying order.
