Get a Jump on Christmas : Quick and Easy Holiday Cards

I am so excited to be sharing this Get a Jump on Christmas series this year! Today's video is episode two and features quick and easy holiday cards featuring Waffle Flower's latest layering and nesting dies.

The Layered Poinsettia and Wood Frames die are a perfect combination!

I love the new Mistletoe Wreath, and I still love last year's Merry Christmas word dies!

The nesting Christmas Tree die is fabulous in every size it comes in! Leave it as is on a card for an easy mass produced design, or add a ton of little colorful enamel dots as Christmas lights for a fun look!

I really love having a classic tag die set like this Nesting Tag Die. Those Christmas tags in the store are so expensive, but it is pretty easy to make your own.

This way you can even change up the style depending on who you are giving the gift too! 

Check out all these ideas in today's video:

Quick and Easy Bright and Colorful Summer Card

I love bright, happy colors! Summer cards are the one type of cards where the brighter the better!

Today, I am sharing several ways to add some brightness and color to cards including colorful stamping!

I also did a bit of Copic coloring!

and ink blending too!

And using fun realistic fruit images is a way to add a summery touch.

Those peaches look good enough to eat!

EASY Interactive Slimline Slider Pop Up Cards!

I love interactive cards, but I do not love measuring and scoring lol! I like dies that do all that work for you. But even then some interactive cards have so many steps to put them together. That's why I love Heffy Doodle's Slimline Pop Up Slider Cards!

There are only two dies and you only need three pieces of cardstock!

Putting them together is a breeze!

You can use them vertically like the card above.

Or you can have the slider go horizontally like this one!

Check out this video to see how easy the dies are to work with and how easy the card is to assemble!

If you love EASY interactive cards, I highly recommend these Heffy Doodle dies! You can check them out and all the other supplies I used below. Thanks for stopping by!

Get a Jump on Christmas - New Waffle Flower Stencils!

I am not normally one who knows how to get ahead on the holidays, but then the holidays arrive and I run out of time and don't even get things done.

So I figured it was finally time to get going on my Christmas cards!

Fortunately, Waffle Flower just released a whole bunch of amazing new stamps, dies and stencils perfect for Christmas cards!

I used the Duo Tone Squares Stencil and Big Dots Stencil in 4 ways to create a whole bunch of Christmas cards.

I started with basic ink blending of two different colors on the stencils. But I also used different mediums such as foiling.

I combined ink blending with a layer of Glitz.

The sentiments are all from the Waffle Flower Wonderful Christmas combo!

Check out all these techniques and cards in today's video:

How to Use Shaped Gel Press for Cardmaking

I had so much fun trying out the 5x7 rectangular Gel Press that I decided to try the small shaped Gel Press this time!

I also decided to do some techniques before adding the prints!

I used embossing folders on some and die cut some words.

I stamped some backgrounds.

I tried out some new acrylic paints.

And continued to use Distress Oxide ink.

And alcohol ink!

Check out all of these techniques and cards in this video:
