Brick Easel House

“From our home to yours” is a sentiment that is often seen during the winter holidays. House cards are one of my favorite types of cards to make.  The cards shown in today’s blog were made using new Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson. To die cut a large solid die like the house […]

Victorian Trim House Luminaria

Warm and cozy is this small brick house with its white ornate Victorian trim as light streams through its windows. This is the third house luminaria in my blog posts using a battery powered candle. Made with Impression Obsession’s house die set, this 3-inch tall by 2 3/4 inch square has slight modifications made to […]

Holiday House Luminaria

Colorful holiday lights fill up the long winter nights. This little holiday house luminaria would be perfect as a holiday table decoration or a child’s nightlight. (Note: Use battery powered candles only.) Made with Karen Burniston’s recent release of her holiday house die set, this 3-inch tall by 2 ½ inch cube has slight modifications […]

House Luminary

Building off of the red four-square house, this four-panel card becomes a wrap-around screen for a battery powered candle. This is the seventh house card in my series of “A Week of Christmas Houses” using Poppy Stamps 2020 Winter House Pop-Up Easel die set.

From Our House to Your House

It’s a cold and blustery day where snow is covering everything. You’ve walked to your neighbor’s house down the lane to drop off a bit of Christmas cheer and now you’re walking back to your home all aglow in the afternoon sun. How lovely and welcoming it looks with its bright paint underneath all the snow.

This is the feeling I hope the recipient of this card will have when they open and display the card.

This project uses the new 2020 Winter House Pop-Up Easel die set by Poppy Stamps.

Olga’s Garden

Olga Direktorenko is the creative designer behind the Paper Discovery brand sold by Craftstash out of the UK and carried by Paper Wishes in the USA. I love her dimensional dies sets that often feel like creating a doll’s house or miniature scenes. On Craftworld, she talks of her garden with vegetables and Ukrainian sunflowers […]

Who is Door Dancing?

Knock, knock. Who’s there? Hoppy Day the dancing bunny of spring. Interactive cards are fun and creating one with layers adds to the excitement. Hints of Easter baskets filled with eggs flank a blue door that when opened, reveals a cute white bunny that will dance when the pull tab is moved back and forth. […]
