A punched background featuring the Christmas Scottie Builder Punch

I knew when I saw the Christmas Scottie dog punch that I had to have it! He's beyond cute and so versatile for Christmas (I even have a felt Scottie ornament for my Christmas tree) and for dog lovers. Would make a great thinking of you and sympathy card, too.

Here's tonight's What's Up Wednesday Facebook live card:

I went with a patterned paper background and adding the punched images (about 10) all the way around then trimmed off the excess from the 4" x 5 1/4" piece of patterned paper. Reserve one for your focal point on a shape on the front. 

This was inspired by another one I made with the Deer Builder punch here which is my submission to the TLC tutorial bundle group I'm involved with. Want to receive the 6 or more card tutorial from me? Just place a monthly order and I will send it to you!

Creative Inkster Escape Monday November 21, 2022!

 I love versatility! Especially not having to think up a new card layout every time. For those occasions when I want to create some lovely cards in a snap without having to think out all the sizes and layers.

That was the inspiration for tonight's Creative Escape. Did you catch it? I hope so!

Do you like this one? I so do - it's got a lovely fall feel and let me crack open the package of Leaf Label and Amber Gems I've been hoarding. Yes, I hoard, too! I decided I loved it so much, it's going to be one of my December Monthly Class cards. Want to make 2? Sign up!


And the two others I did on the Facebook live:




If you missed the live - what were you doing? - I'm on FB Live every Monday at 7p ET - so regular you could set an alarm to it. Here's the the replay:

More fun with Let's Set Sail These colours are Orchid Oasis and Flirty Flamingo. Such a fresh departure from fall and Christmas cards for a change. Who do you think will get this "adventure" card from his grandma?

Simple Card with Memories & More Kit

 We have these beautiful card sets called Memories & More card pack. What are they? You get a total of 50 double-sided cards in two sizes: 3" x 4" and 4" x 6" plus stickers. There are also pre-cut matching cardbases and envelopes. Here's a card I made using the Texture Chic set. Isn't that card front stunning? I took one of the 4" x 6" cards and cut out the floral image so I could pop it up as an element on the card base. The cards are larger than our standard, 4 1/4" x 6 1/4". What I love most is how easy it is to make cards with a coordinating pack or thick papers and a pair of scissors! No stamping, no dies, no punches needed. This card was from my November 2022 Kit to Go class and it was a big hit!

Not your traditional Christmas card!

Here's my first card of four for the December 13 in-person (or Kit to Go) class! Make 2 of 4 different designs. This is the token "Christmas" card in the class. We'll be colouring in the black and white tree paper. I love how different this is for the holidays.



(For Kit to Go, you provide inks and stamps. All other non-stamped supplies are provided for easy assembly). Class fee: $25 OR $10 with a minimum $40 order.
So.... who's in?
