Unicorn Valentine
by Nancy Penir


Can you believe it's almost Valentines? One of my favorite holidays, sending love to those special people in my life is a joy!


Many of those 'special people' in my life are young, and Poppystamps has some new Whittles just right to bring a smile!


Whittle Unicorn comes with separate mane and horn allowing some creativity, not to mention depth. It also comes with a double heart, which when cut is the heart plus outline! 


I cut the hearts die from several glitter papers, and arranged them around the Whittle Circle Frame. You can see one around the unicorn's horn too!.


Lots of framing and foam lifts, really zooms in on the main attraction... that wreath of unicorn joy! 

Happy Valentines, and Happy crafting!

Slimline Hearts
by Marybeth Lopez


Hi there, Marybeth Lopez  here today to share another slimline card with you..... because they are just fun to make.  I used : Poppystamps die called Twinkling Hearts and some beautiful soft glitter paper from Memory box , called Delicate Pastel . Both linked below


I placed the die on the panel and cut it 3 times turning it each time just a bit. I cut and glued 3 different colors from the glitter pad then die cut three more times (mostly just the hearts)


I took many different turns with this card and ended up with a clean and simple card( again) :) The top panel measures 3 3/4  x 9 the folded pink card measures  just a bit more than the white panel. 


Hard to capture the beautiful shimmer of this soft glitter paper, hope you can see.




Thank you for the visit today, and may God bless you all.

Welcome Christmas
by Nancy Penir


Christmas Greetings, all! Hoping you're enjoying the holiday season, even with all that's plagued us this past year. I have a card to share that hopefully brings some cheer along with inspiration, using some dies that can be used any time or season.


The Townhouses trio is a fun set of 3 townhomes with separate roofs, allowing you to change up the colors. My card today uses them on a shaker. 


After I folded my 4 1/4 x 11" cardstock I positioned my square frame where I wanted the shaker to be. Then drew within the square window.


I kept the pencil mark faint, but you can see where it's drawn (if you look carefully). Then I used post it notes to create a barrier for sponging.


The sponging was done rather randomly, slightly heavier on top, sort of like a snowy flurry.


Here's a closeup of the townhomes. I decided to add 'snow' to the rooftops (embossing) and doubled the homes so the windows would have a bit of contrast.

Snowflake sequins are the sweetest shaker elements, don't you think? 

Despite a year of chaos and turmoil, it's still the most wonderful time of year. And my prayer is that you find peace and joy in the beauty of the holidays. Blessings!

Merry Christmas
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello friends, Marybeth Lopez  here today , sharing this  Merry Christmas card with white and plaid.

I hope and pray you are all doing well  and finding lots of time to create. It's a blessing to have this craft that we all share.


One of my favorite Christmas , patterned paper pads this year has been the Dashing Holiday patterned paper from memory box, linked below.

I think this will carry me right into February as well.


I simply cut the die once , glued only the lower edge and a few of the lower foliage. I didn't glue the entire die.  I added some glitter and heat embossed the sentiment. The Leafy Garden Border from Poppystamps can be used for anytime of year. The simple set is from Poppystamps and called : Christmas Fun. 


The products above are the only ones I need for this glittery Christmas card.


I hope you stay healthy safe, have a very joyful, and peaceful Christmas and holiday season. 

 May God bless you all.
