Sweet Orange Holidays

Hello again,

Today I am sharing a fruitful holiday card using the new Sweet Orange Holidays stamp and die set by Papertrey Ink, an Ink To Paper collection. I don’t know about you but it is a family tradition to get an orange at the bottom of our Christmas stockings so this stamp set is perfect!

For this card design, I decided to go for the look of a blood orange, and maybe a little bit of an artistic license to mute the colors.

Splendid Spruce Trees

Hi Crafty Friends,

I am sharing another quick, but high impact card design. As usual, I am dashing around to get everything done so my friends and family know I view the holiday time rather loosely. I do manage to get all the cards and greetings mailed by Christmas but likely don’t arrive until after… but it is the thought that counts, right? (At least that is what I keep telling myself – haha!)

These three cards use the same Penny Black Splendid Spruce stamp set and the Mistletoe Greetings by Concord & 9th.
