Welcome to another edition of Throwback Thursday — a trip back in time! For each throwback, we’ll be spotlighting fantastic cards and projects using products from previous releases. The new stuff is always SO fun, but think about all of those great products you’ve collected and set aside. They are STILL AWESOME! And we want to inspire you with fantastic inspiration from our creative archives.
Have you started your Christmas cards yet? Our Fun & Festive release includes lots of wonderful products to celebrate the holidays, but you might remember some pretty spectacular products from last year’s Making Spirits Bright collection. In celebration, let’s take a look at some inspiring cards created with goodies from our Making Spirits Bright release!
First up this project from Debby Hughes:
Holiday Picture Book characters for the win! Debby die cut the Snowman, Deer, and Santa from white cardstock and colored each with her Copic markers to add depth to each. In addition, she cleverly added Ho Ho Ho to her card by using the word hope from the Stained Glass Greetings stamp set and die. You can see Debby’s original post HERE on the Simon Says Stamp blog. And if you want to see how she created this card, she’s got a fun video that you can watch HERE.
Next, let’s throw it back to this beauty from Jan Tinklenberg:
This stunning design from Jan features two classic products from the Making Spirits Bright release—the Stained Glass Greetings stamp set and die and the Center Cut Kaleidoscope background stamp. What a magnificent card! You can find Jan’s original blog post HERE.
And let’s not forget this fun project from Lisa Addesa:
Holiday happiness oozes in this beautiful design from Lisa in traditional Christmas colors. With the help of the Fa La La stamp set, Fa La La die, and Holly Collage die, she achieves card making magic for the holidays! Visit Lisa’s original post HERE.
Our last throwback project comes from @nikibee.handmade:
Australian crafter Niki posted this beautiful card on Instagram using the O Holy Night die from the Making Spirits Bright release. Her striking background and touches of metallic gold and sparkle really make this design shine. You can check out Niki’s original post HERE.
