A different way to make waterfall cards

Isn’t it wonderful when you find an easier way to make a card? This version of the waterfall card, really worked for me. I feel that the card is much steadier and there will be no issues with it, long term.

I used one of my absolute favorite Suites from the Mini Catalog: the Santa Express Suite. I have made several cards with this suite, some of them are very simple, all you need is to add pieces from the Memory Card Pack. I totally recommend it.

Super cute Christmas Pop Up Card

Creating pop up cards has become a fun learning process/ challenge for me. Just like any other card, it has its own learning curve… and I think I am finally understanding well how to make these cards. I made a video tutorial to share with you what I have learned so far and create with you a super cute Christmas card.

I have realized that I get far too excited when I envision a card and when I actually have to make, several stamp sets or dies are needed to make it. The good news is that it shows that we can mix and match our stamps to create new outcomes. There are 3 different stamp sets/ dies being used in this card: Jingle, Jingle, Jingle, Cup of tea, and Regal Reindeer. I am also using the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series paper.

Half Star Illusion Card 

This Half Star Illusion Card is definitely a show stopper. As you can imagine, it popped up on my Pinterest feed, asking me to make it. The pin belongs to a SU demonstrator from the UK, Crafty Karen Designs, but she mentions that the design is from Iced Images. It sounds like I need to visit Iced Images website, lol! So… Thank you Iced Images for this amazing card.

I am using one of my favorite Designer Series Paper, since I became a demonstrator: the Blackberry Beauty, which I found out is back in stock and on SALE! for $6. It is a steal! Go grab it, before it’s gone.

A new fun fold, pop up card

If you like fun folds you are in for a treat. This fun fold pop up card, is not only gorgeous but simple to make. Pinterest is definitely the place for inspiration, even if I keep seeing pins from France, Germany, and other countries. Don’t ge me wrong, it looks like all these wonderful crafters write pretty detailed instructions, I just can’t understand them, 🤣 But, the inspiration is what matters!

I am aware that I am a Christmas junkie… I just can’t help it. This means one of the cards created in the live was a Christmas card. And yes… I am using the Santa Express Suite, which I simply adore. If you don’t have it… you need it. And while you are at it… spend $50 before shipping and tax and you will get a free gift from me. This month’s free gift is the Memory pack that belongs to the suite. Check my rewards system here
