A Clean and Simple “Peace” Christmas Card

When you hear the term “clean and simple” for handmade cards, what comes to mind?

Maybe a card that involves just stamping, no layers. Or with one or two layers. The concept of clean and simple cards does involve minimal layering. This is my favorite style of cards to make because it has lots of “white” space (open space). That’s what gives it the “clean” look.

This clean and simple Christmas card idea is brimming with Christmas spirit. Cardinals are very Christmas!

Spellbinders just released some fun new stamp sets in their Card Maker II release this month. This Collection contains 5 stamp sets that cover a variety of styles, so there’s something for everyone!

Im featuring 2 sets Embroidery Flowers & Simple Sentiments. I love how this clean and simple Mini Slimline birthday card turned out.

Sweet Surprises and a New Bear!

There’s a New Bear in town! It’s no secret that I love the Bear collection from Ellen Hutson. I immediately knew this guy was a must have!

This new little buddy is part of the Sweet Surprises Set. I paired him with some “Bear Ware” accessories and Bear sentiments! He sure is cute!

Here is my 2nd card:

There is a BUNCH of Bear and His Ware. I’m going to list them here but the best way to find them is to search them on Ellen’s site if you are getting them all. Search “All Inside Bear” to get the Bear. Search “Bear Ware” to get everything else.

  • The main stamp set with the Bear is called All Inside Bear. He has a die.
  • Original Bear Ware and matching dies
  • Bear Ware 2 and matching dies
  • Bear Ware 3 and matching dies
  • Bear Ware 4 and matching dies
  • Bear Ware 5 and matching dies
  • Warm Fuzzies sentiment set.

Introducing the Spellbinders Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken

Well if you need to update your classic dies (like circles, squares or slimline) this is the collection to do it with. Today I have two cards created with products from the just-launched Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken at Spellbinders.

First up is the Fluted Classics Circles set.

There are also dies included in the set that cuts out the full circle-inside or outside.

In addition to the circles, there are ovals, slimlines, and rectangles in the Fluted Classics collection as well. Here is my slimline:

It was really hard to get a good picture of this card. It’s so beautiful in person with the black snow paper, sliver and white. It’s perfect for the White tree from the O Christmas Tree Die Set.

While I created Christmas cards, these die designs are timeless and can be used on your cards all year round. I can guarantee you will be seeing them often around here!

Its Spellbinders club time! Today I am sharing a beautiful Christmas slimline card made with the Large Die of the Month Club Kit for NOVEMBER 2021.

I colored all the detail of the die cut border with a few swipes of some copic markers. The only die cuts are 3 matching red poinsettias. Simply beautiful.

The sentiment is from a new clear stamp called Christmas Time sentiments. There are 13 cutting dies included in the Christmas Foliage Strip & Border Die set. Slimline cards are so fun!!! The dies this month create beautiful layers and accents!

Oh my wow! This month is simply beautiful. Time for the November 2021 Spellbinders Small Die of the month! This month brings “Stitched Curved Border & Ornaments”.

I chose to use the circle die cut as a background. Instead of using the ornaments I choose to embellish the card with the poinsettias from the Large Die of the Month.

Simply beautiful! The Sentiment is from the Mini Christmas Sentiment Strips Glimmer Hot foil set. I love the simple touch of gold!

Like the other Spellbinders clubs, the small die is a subscription-style club. You can add on other clubs and so much more: Details of how it works HERE
