Holiday Cheer card by Patty Folchert

I just love snowmen this time of year and this card highlights a snowy couple, created with a new Hampton Art clear stamp set.

Holiday Cheer card by Patty Folchert

I stamped the snowman couple in gray ink onto white pearlescent paper first and set aside to dry. Next I cut the two coordinating green mats as shown to frame the snowman panel. Then I chose a red pattern paper to cover the card base as shown.


I attached the mats and the panel layered and at an angle as shown. Then it needed some embellishing so I added the wood banners with the sentiments stamped in red ink. It still needed something more so I added the wood holly and wood heart as pictured. Last I added the red goosebumps as holly berries.


Snowmen always warm my heart and this card will hopefully be a gift of warmth as well. May all your deliveries be full of Christmas Cheer this month!

Christmas Cheer to You,
Patty Folchert

Merry Cookie card by Patty Folchert

One of our favorite holiday traditions is decorating Christmas cookies at my Mom’s house. I tried to capture some of that magic in this card by creating a gingerbread heart “cookie”. This card features a festive new Hampton Art stamp and die set.


Merry Cookie card by Patty Folchert

This card started with a green cardstock base which I stamped snowflakes onto in gray ink as shown. Next I added the red gingham paper border strip for some homemade appeal using my sewing machine to stitch it on. The banner piece was cut out of pearlescent white paper using the matching die that comes with this set. Then the “Wishing you a” sentiment was stamped onto it in gray ink. It was attached to the card base using 3D foam dots. Then I cut out the Merry piece using the other die with this set from white paper. Then I stamped the Merry cutout in green ink.


To create the cookie I grabbed a new kraft chipboard heart and used a chalkboard marker in white to simulate icing and sprinkles. Then I added the red ribbon as shown and attached cookie to the card with 3D foam dots. I attached the Merry cutout to the cookie as shown and then stamped the “very” in red ink onto white cardstock. I also stamped the bottom sentiment onto white cardstock in red ink and attached to card base with regular adhesive as shown.


A very merry cookie card was born, I like how it turned out and it reminds me of Grandma’s kitchen. Wishing you happy holiday of baking and crafting this season.

Dreaming of Cookies,
Patty Folchert

Joy To The World card by Patty Folchert

Joy to the World and to you this fine holiday season. Here is a card using a brand-new Hampton Art Stamp & Die Set.


Joy To The World card by Patty Folchert

This card started with a red embossed card base, using a Darice embossing folder called sheet music. I added a border strip of green polka dots in the center of the card base adding stitching with my sewing machine as shown.


Then I stamped the tag in green ink “to the world”. The Joy was stamped in red ink on a patterned wood grain paper and then cut out with the matching die using my Cuttlebug. I popped up the Joy on the tag with 3D foam dots and tied the tag string into a bow. Then I added some thin red gingham washi tape. I also added some green polka dot paper to the tag as shown. The tag is finally attached to the card with 3D foam dots and the finishing touch is the alternating adhesive sequins in red and green.

A joyful card is the end result, perfect for sharing this holiday season! Let us know how many handmade cards you plan to make this year, we would love to hear from you.

Joy to You,
Patty Folchert
