I created both of these pet sympathy cards with two stencils from A Colorful Life Designs called Rainbow Pets and Layered Rainbow Bridge Set as well as a beautiful set of Rainbow Bridge sentiment stamps from Waffle Flower. The soft look was achieved by stenciling and stamping on vellum and also on the white cardstock below.

Here is another favorite card I shared in the video featuring the softness of see through vellum on a tri-fold mini-slimline card. The gorgeous layered roses were created with a die set from Altenew and the see through sentiment stickers are from Stamplorations.

Some of the Gemini Foilpress images cut as well as "stamp" the image in foil in the Foilpress machine like the gorgeous butterfly on this card. I "stamped" some pretty foiled flowers on the card front and even cut the shadow of Gina K's "hello" out of a silver foiled piece. I die cut the front out of my favorite stitched rectangle dies from Kat Scrappiness and added some gems to complete the card.

Here are the measurements of my card if you would like to make a card like this one:
The dark green card base was cut 5 1/4" wide and 12" inches long and scored at 6" for a top folding card. Then I trimmed off 1 1/2" from the front of the card.
The diamonds were cut 1 1/4" square and layered on 1 3/8" green squares.
The inside piece is 4 3/4" x 4".
I am entering this card in the 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

This card is so much prettier in the video where you can see the starry shine of the ribbon on the tree over the debossed Memory Box Pinpoint Snowflake background. I applied Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo through the 2nd stencil and when it was dry attached Gina K Designs Glimmering Gold Fancy Foil. Peace is a die from Quietfire Design and I added some gold gems.
I think the cards I made for the new video with Trinity Stamps Ribbon Swirl Tree Stencil might be my favorite of the holiday cards I have made this year! I hope they inspire you to give some of the ideas and products a try!

This is the card I show step by step how to make in my new video. The Trinity Stamps Ribbon Swirl Tree is a set of two stencils and on this card I brushed on light purple ink through the first layer onto a patterned paper background debossed with the Kat Scrappiness Stitched Winter Swirl Background. Then I applied a darker layer of purple ink through the second stencil and added Gina K Designs Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel on top. After it dried, I attached "Sending" from Kat Scrappiness and punched iridescent snowflakes. Here is a look at the inside of this card:
I also used Gina K Designs/Therm O Web Glitz Glitter Gel on the second layer of this Ribbon Swirl Tree, this time in Red Velvet. The debossed background on this card was created with a Memory Box Pinpoint Snowflake Plate. "Joy" is a die from Impression Obsesson and I added punched and die cut iridescent silver snowflakes to finish this card.

One of my favorites of the Gemini Stamp Dies for the Foilpress was the snowflake border I used on both this mini slimline and the slimline card below. On both cards I added a sticker sentiment from STAMPlorations and cut the card fronts with stitched dies from Kat Scrappiness.

The stitched rectangles highlighting those perfect sentiments and the stitched snowflakes behind the two tiny gnomes on the front of the card are from Kat Scrappiness. Here is another 3 step staircase card with punch out 5 Little Monkey art:
Isn't this wiper birthday card adorable? I just love the Animal Alphabet Die Set from Sizzix and here is a picture of what pops up when the wiper comes up:
I hope you will watch the new video with all of these fun interactive fun folds for special kids and give some of the ideas and products a try!
