Surely one of the best sentiment stamps of the past year comes from Picket Fence Studios' Bless Your Heart set: "LMFMO: Laughing My Freaking Mask Off" definitely sums up quite a few situations which arose in 2020 and 2021! I've paired it with Eyelet Outlet Emotion, Mini Emotion and Mask Brads. By a happy coincidence, all of these items are available at The Ink Pad; and the card featuring them is on The Ink Pad Blog today!

It's that time in the Jingle Belles calendar when we celebrate Earth Day (a tiny bit early, this year) by making holiday cards which feature a re-purposed, re-cycled or up-cycled element. This could be anything from re-using pretty ribbons, old greeting cards or giftwrap; making diecuts or embellies from cereal boxes or soda cans; using plastic packaging as the window of a shaker card or... well, you get the idea, right?
I rescued the cover of this catalog in December, and since I usually save the fronts of the store-bought holiday cards I receive, I was able to find one with cardinals who look right at home in this beautiful birch tree glade. My sentiment was trimmed off another card and I matted everything on scraps of specialty cardstock and affixed them to my kraft slimline card. I had intended to add snowflake brads or sequins, but nothing seemed quite right, so I decided to stop and let the cardinals be the stars of the show.
