Christmas Lodge

Can't love it 'til you try it!

Now that I've tried it...I LOVE IT!!!

I love this stamp set and I love the designer paper even more!
The images are big and beautiful. Easy to use too! And the greetings are classy and vintage.

And did I mention the paper? The Plaids!!! There are so many of them and they're all lovely and warm and just so darn great. I want to put this paper on everything! Actually, in the next few weeks you'll see that I actually am putting this paper on everything. Just you wait and see!
I used the new Dazzling Details (glitter glue) on the snowy parts of the house to add some shimmer. For the greeting I inked only the words with an Early Espresso Marker and then stamped them on. So versatile! Oh, and of course I distressed this card a bit too with my color spritzer tool. Which I also love.

See what I mean about classy!?! This card is actually really simple but looks like a lot of work!
This features the Woodgrain stamp in the background but I could have easily used a piece of designer paper instead...but I'm saving them all for the plaid sides! Oh and a bit of Log Cabin Smooch Spritz.

This last card is the quickest and easiest of the bunch but you wouldn't know it by it's looks.
I stamped the tree image off once before stamping the card so it would be a little less than full strength. That and tiny bit of quick distressing and this card was a snap!
I used:
* Christmas Lodge and Woodgrain stamp sets
* Early Espresso and Garden Green inks
* Frostwood Lodge Designer Paper
* Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Whisper White card stocks
* Early Espresso marker and Color Spritzer tool
* Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso Quilted Satin Ribbons
* Basic Rhinestones
* Log Cabin Smooch Spritz
* Dazzling Details



  1. Wow, very country, very plaid, and very pretty!

  2. I love your cards and the blend of the stamps with the plaids! I am so glad to have found your blog. I have book marked it and will be back again and again :0) Elizabeth
