Blythe’s Christmas Card Buffet Offerings

October 21, 2020 By

At last!!! At last I get to share my upcoming Christmas Card Buffet offerings.  What on earth is a Card Buffet?  It is definitely not a dining feast.  Rather……it’s a card making feast. I create six sample cards, post them here on my blog, and you select which combination of the six cards you’d like to make.  This gives you a little jump start on this year’s holiday cards.…

My Second Poinsettia Petals Z-Fold Card

October 21, 2020 By

Poinsettia Petals Mystery Stamping Card

October 20, 2020 By

On Monday I participated in a Mystery Stamping FB Live opportunity and made a pretty satisfactory Poinsettia Petal Mystery Stamping card.   When I create a card using Designer Series Paper (DSP) I check the back of the pack to determine the coordinating card stock colors.  For this card I used Garden Green – card stock and Classic Ink stamp pad Bumblebee – card stock and Classic Ink stamp…

PEACE Christmas Card

September 21, 2020 By

That this has been a crazy unpredictable 2020 is an understatement.  When I saw this card, created by Denise MacCabe from New South Wales, Australia, I knew I had to recreate it.  First off, my major in college was geography and I’m a softy when it comes to anything map/globe related.  Secondly, the word PEACE on the card front just said it all.  Take a deep breath and focus…
