Home For the Holidays Christmas Card

5" x 5" Christmas Card by Karen Pedersen

Please don't throw rotten tomatoes, but let me remind you that we are only 10 weeks away from Christmas.  Luckily, Close To My Heart is on the ball and has offered a Stamp of the Month in October that will help you get prepared early.  I've already created several cards and tags with it! YAY!

This stamp set is available only in October and is only $5 ($17.95 value) with every $50 you spend in a single order.  $100...get 2...and so on.  You can place your orders 24/7 on my website.

Fall Card with Mojo Monday

I just love this time of year. The colors are so warm. I was looking out my office window this morning, admiring the Fall colors, and decided to do a quick Autumn card.  I went with all neutrals on this card because I think neutrals have a beauty all their own.  The printed patterned cardstock you see on this card came from our Paper Fundamentals Basic Collection.  Each sheet has a tone on tone embossed pattern on one side and the same pattern in white and the color on the other.  Can you see that I have used both sides of the Cocoa and the Saddle pieces on this card?  Cool beans!

I also used this week's Mojo Monday sketch (#368) as my inspiration.

I love our new alcohol markers. They are so sturdy, have such brilliant colors, blend seamlessly, and are smooth as butter!  You can find all of the colors here.   The colors I used are listed with links at the end of this post. 

I tend to use 3D foam tape a lot on my projects because I love lots of texture, detail, and variances of height on my project.  It just adds to the beauty, in my opinion.   I've included a complete products used list at the end of this post, complete with photos and links to the products on my website for your convenience.

Halloween Card and Mojo Monday

Halloween Card by Karen Pedersen

When I saw this week's Mojo Monday sketch, I knew it would be great inspiration for a quick, easy card.  I love it when quick and easy translate to spooktacular!  This little standard card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") took all of about 5 minutes to put together and it's spine-tinglingly boo-tiful!

I've included a products used list, complete with photos and links, at the end of this post.  All of them can be ordered on my website.  Enjoy!

Christmas Card using Snowhaven Papers and the October Stamp of the Month

Standard Size (5 1/2" x 4 1/4") Christmas Card with the October Stamp of the Month by Karen Pedersen

This little card whipped up in no time! It's full of fun and visual interest, but oh-so-simple!

I used the large ornament stamp from the October Stamp of the Month, inked and stamped it in Cranberry ink on a 1 3/4" circle. Not that the ornament shape isn't darling (it is!), but for this card I just wanted a circle.  Easy peasy!

See all of those red line shapes?  Not only is this set cuter than cute, but almost every image in the set coordinates with shapes our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  Yeah, baby!  That creates a LOT less cutting with scissors.

This stamp set is available during October only. With every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax) you can get one of these sets for only $5.  Spend $100, get two...and so on.  When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before you check out.  The products I used on this card are listed, along with photos and links after the signature line on this post. Enjoy!

Reminder: In addition to the Stamp of the Month being available for only $5 with every $50 you spend this month, there is ANOTHER great special too.  With every $50 or larger order you get a FREE spool of either Ruby or Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon.  CTMH will surprise you with the color.
