Warm Wishes with Woodsy Friends

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a friendly bunch of woodsy critters that are extending their very warm wishes for the Holidays.

This card design was made using the My Favorite Things Sweater Weather In The Woods stamp and die set. The design features urban-going critters out on the town enjoying their favorite cup of ‘Joe’. But truth be told, I think they are really having a luscious latte!

Winter Wonderland of Fir Trees

Hi Everyone,

We are sharing two card designs, both using the Alexandra Renke Fir Trees die. These are lovely artistic trees that you can use lots of different ways. In the video we are sharing, you will see two different backgrounds to create two different flavors from the same die.

Please take a moment and watch the video. It will give you all the ins and outs of the design. And don’t forget, the complete supply list is below.

And, as always, we would be ever so happy if you subscribed to our YouTube channel, if you haven’t already.  Thanks so much… enjoy!

Gingerbread, A Happy Tradition

Hi Crafty Friends,

We have something exciting to announce!! Starting today, The Foiled Fox and Heather Telford (one of our very favorite guests!) are hosting a Holiday Traditions giveaway event. For the next couple of weeks, we will be sharing card designs that represent a few holiday traditions we enjoy in our homes. We are hoping you will join in on the fun and share a few of your holiday traditions by commenting on our blogs and Instagram (links are provided at the bottom of this post). Each time you comment, you will have another chance to win.

To kick off this merriment, Heather is sharing their family tradition of making gingerbread. When Heather told me her tradition, I was sure I would see gingerbread men on her card design. I was so surprised and awestruck by her ingenuity and cleverness! This year, she is not only making tasty gingerbread cookies to delight her family but she has made a duo of incredible card designs to share with us. Don’t they look good enough to eat?

Sled Ride In The Winter

Hi Crafty Friends,

The card design today does not have the usual color scheme for a Holiday card… but it is still one of my favorites. It might be that I love black and the contrast. In any event, I couldn’t resist making this color combination.

Besides the black, red and white, I love Pinkfresh’s Squirrel Friends stamp and die set. These squirrels are so cute! The other great thing is that I think you could use them year ’round. I am eager to see them in a forest meadow scene.

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

HI Crafty Friends,

The winter is upon us and what better way to celebrate than with snowflakes. These big, beautiful snowflakes are from the Concord & 9th Snow Flurry stamp and die set. With a little embossing and spritzing, it creates a wonderful wintery effect!

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today’s card design is a bright and cheery winter scene, complete with the quintessential snowman and ice pond. The big sky sets the stage for the wintery look and the trees and village add to this Jolly Holiday scene.

Oh, what fun I had using all Penny Black dies to make this card. Let’s get started.
