Stamped and Die Cut Joy Card

I created this little card for I thought you might want to know what products I used to create this "Joy" Christmas stamped and die cut card. Here's a look at the completed project:

Joy stamped and die cut card by Jen Gallacher for

You create this card you will need:
* Snowflake background stamp
* Tree background stamp
* "Joy" word die cut
* Craft, Red, Leaf Green, Darker Green and White cardstock
* Scallop scissors or a scallop border punch
*  Tree Die Cuts
* Brown Stamping Ink
* Red Stamping Ink
* Red Button
* White Twine

To create the card use the brown stamping ink to stamp the tree background stamp onto kraft cardstock. Cut into a square to form the base of the card. Use red stamping ink to stamp the snowflake background stamp onto red cardstock. Mount onto two white scallop border strips cut with a border punch. Die cut the two trees from two different shades of green cardstock and mount on the card (backgrounds and top layers are included with this die cut). Die cut the word "joy" from white cardstock and mount on the card. Add a red button tied with twine.

Stamped Christmas Ornament

I love looking through Target's amazing holiday decor. It's all I can do to be good and stick to my budget. This year they blew me away with their incredible options. I purchased two red, metal star ornaments with the idea of altering them just a bit. This is what I created:

Stamped #target star ornament by Jen Gallacher. #stamping

To create this project you will need:

* A red, metal star ornament
* Tinsel with a wire running through it
* Black cardstock
* Snowflake stamp
* White Stamping Ink
* A brad
* A paper piercer
* A 1 to 1 1/2" circle punch
* Black ribbon

Use white stamping ink to stamp a snowflake onto black cardstock. When dry, use the paper punch to punch a circle around the snowflake. Use a punch that is slightly larger than the snowflake image you've chosen. Use a paper piercer to poke a hole through the center of the snowflake image. Add a brad. Mount the punched circle into the center of the red star ornament. Wrap the tinsel into a circle and attach ends together. Mount around the stamped snowflake image. Add black ribbon to the top of the ornament.

Here's another look at this project. Be sure to pin it for inspiration later!
