Quick Christmas Card Created with Planner Stamps


Hey All!

Today I have a quick Christmas card to share with you using stamps that were designed to be used on planners. These Christmas Mini Planner stamps come from Ink On 3's latest release and is on SALE now, so make sure you snag it while you can.

Since I am a horrible planner and don't use a planner, I thought they would be just as fun to use on a card to create a background. I was so right, look how cute this card turned out and it was so quick and simple to make!

 To create the background I first stamped the silver images you see, and heat set the silver embossing on them. Then I stamped the other images randomly, using versafine Black Onyx ink and heat set them with a clear embossing powder. Next, I used Zig Clean Real Brush markers to quickly fill in the images and that was pretty much the hardest part. For the front sentiment I just repeatedly stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment, trimmed it and then also added silver embossing powder to the edges. I also ended up doing the same silver embossing on the edge of the background panel. To finish this card I added a strip of silver foiled washi tape to the front centre and popped up the sentiment using some foam tape. SO easy!

Here is how I finished off the inside.

Hope this inspires you if you are looking for last a last minute card to make or if you have planner stamps and want to use them to create card backgrounds.

Merry and Bright Suspended Swing Ornament Card on a Bokeh Background ft MFT's Handwritten Holiday Stamps


Hey Everyone!

I'm back today to share with you all another card created for my 2017 Holiday Card Series on You Tube. 

I love how this Merry and Bright Suspended Swing Ornament Card turned out!  My favorite part though has to be the backgound of this card. I have been wanting to create a background like this forever but because I didn't have a stencil I kept putting it off. So, instead of waiting any longer I just created my own DIY Bokeh stencil. Make sure you watch the video to see how simple it was to make!

As you can see the ornament swings from side...

to side.

But the best part is that the ornament won't flop around or flip upsidedown. It can only move so much on the card.

Even tilted that's how far it falls.
Here is the secret... the ornament is suspended so that the movent is somewhat limited! Check out the next image to see what I mean.
Cool right!?
