Welcome to another edition of Throwback Thursday — a monthly trip back in time! Each month 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.
Chances are you’ve started thinking about your Christmas card designs, am I right? Our new holiday release Making Spirits Bright is filled with holiday inspiration, but you might remember some pretty spectacular products from last year’s Believe in the Season collection. In celebration, let’s take a look at four Christmas card ideas using product from our Believe in the Season release!
First up this project from Suzy Plantamura:
Suzy created this gorgeous wreath using image stamps featured in the Christmas Essentials set and added her sentiment using our Believe stamp set and coordinating die. You can see Suzy’s original post about this festive, watercolor dream (plus all nine of her projects from the Believe in the Season collection) HERE.
Next, let’s throw it back to this colorful, geometric card from Laura Bassen:
In true Laura Bassen-style, the holidays get a modern twist with these graphic Christmas trees and some ROYGBIV love. Laura used sixteen glorious Simon Says Stamp inks with the Color Me Trees stamp set. You can see Laura’s original post about this card and learn how she created it HERE. If you want to see Laura in action, don’t miss her YouTube video sharing her process for this card HERE.
And let’s not forget this inspiring project you might have missed from Caryn Davies:
Cozy and rustic is the name of the game in this homey design from Caryn Davies. Caryn featured the Magical Christmas stamp set and dies with holiday-infused plaid patterned paper. That twine bow? All kinds of perfect. Visit Caryn’s original post HERE.
The Poinsettia stamp set looks absolutely STUNNING in wintry pinks paired with sequins and fresh greens. Barb used watercolor paper with white heat embossing and colored her images with Zig Clean Color Markers. You can check out Barb’s original post HERE for more information on how she created this incredibly lovely card.
