Watercolor Wednesday: Holiday Edition

So many cards

Are you ready for the holidays? (I’ll wait for you to stop laughing)

I’m kind of excited this year, because this will be my first holiday season as a card maker. That might explain why I’ve gone off the deep end ordering every holiday themed stamp and die set out there. Oh, and those dies that you can use to make felt Christmas ornaments? Got those too. I will be answering only to “Martha” this season, thank you.

So let’s jump right into the Christmas cards pile, shall we?


I have completely fallen for the Hand Lettered Holiday sentiment stamps from My Favorite Things. I’ve been using them on practically every card I make. I’m also obsessed with snowflakes. I’ve lost track of how many snowflake stamps I have now, but that didn’t stop me from getting the Snowflake Flurry set. I love the retro look of them.

Continuing the theme of watercolor backgrounds…


I posted a preview of this card on Instagram awhile ago. I snagged the last “joy” stamp from my local Michael’s last season, when I was just starting to dabble but didn’t really have the necessary tools for card making. I really love the way this stamp embossed with such detail.

Are you making holiday cards or other holiday crafts?
