I’ve got 4 DIY Christmas cards made with the Stampin’ Up! Gnome for the Holidays to share. Talk about easy homemade cards for the season! Plus, I’m sharing tips for coloring with the Stampin’ Blends. I think these are such cute Christmas cards.
Aside from the Gnome, the second feature on these cards is coloring with the Stampin’ Blends. These are my favorite alcohol based markers. I truly never liked to color until I started using these–they are awesome!
These 4 DIY Christmas cards are so easy to make; just layer the stamped images onto pieces of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. This paper is seriously the best but it will go away by the end of December, so grab it if you like it. You’ll use this paper year round and it makes card making a breeze.
