Dream Big

Dream Big 1

Hey everyone. This sweet little card is very simple, using the Dream Big set from Kraftin Kimmie stamps. I coloured it up with my copic markers.

Dream Big 2


I kept this card very simple, layered patterned paper, and some foam flowers. I like the simplicity of this card, even though when I started it I thought it was going to be a very busy card. Sometimes things don’t turn out the way you first envisioned them. I inked the edges of all my papers with Black Soot Distress ink to unify them all.

Merry Christmas by Lori Zielinski

Jess Christmas blog hop

Hello, and thanks so much for stopping by for this fabulous October Christmas Series.

Lorianna here with a creation, you can find my blog here.

Jess is a wonderful card maker and I have learned so much from her UStream Classes, and always have FUN too! Today’s focus is on using digital die cutters for Christmas cards. I have used my Silhouette Portrait for this card.

For the base of my card I used Recollections #110lb Cardstock.

The black and red layers are cardstock from Stamp’in Up.

I selected a file from, Doodle Pantry, called card cut 6, which is the white and green mat, which is a polka dot paper from a paper pad, not sure of brand name.  The ornate layer is a Silhouette file called merry christmas split damask (Design #67004) and resized it for the front of an A2 card.

I then used some organdy ribbon form my stash, (lol we all have one)

And a half pearls in each corner.

And popped this whole panel up on pop dots for some extra dimension.

These would be perfect Christmas cards for for mailing, without the bow.  Not much bulk and weight, so that means no added postage. And with all those Christmas cards, it really adds up.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the month’s cards, I am sure Jess and friends will bring lots of beautiful creations!!

Here is another card, again inspired from the same layout as the last card from, my friend, Sarah.


This one was tons of fun, using a Stampin up set from back in 2002.

Birthday card 3

The back round of this card is made using Heidi Swapp colour shine in teal and white, also Lindy’s stamp Gang Down the rabbit hole, and Sandra Dee Sepia.

The image is from the Stampin up set, I think it is called Express Yourself, but that could be wrong. The behind the coffee cup is cheese cloth I sprayed with the Lindy’s sprays, the paper is reccollections paper from Michael’s and behind it is Recycled Sari Silk Ribbon. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp, and the tag is actually is a ticket die from Memory Box that I cut the one side flat on.

Birthday Card 3cinside

The inside of the card I stamped the sentiment and some more of the bean’s both from that Stampin Up set, and added a little bit of the same colours of sprays in a water colour fashion inside.

Tomorrow I will have this weeks card Challenge up with a link up tool for you to add your cards!
