Hello Friends!.  Jennifer Snyder here to share a winter Holiday card with a stronger feel.  I am trying to focus on making some cards I can send to my sons who live far away in the mountains.  While they appreciate my cards, I think they would be happy with less flowers and lace – something a bit more masculine occasionally.


The paper I chose for this card is from Maja Design’s “Winter is Coming” Collection and coordinating Monochrome collection, “Shades of Winter”.


Nothing says mountain nature more than  the paper I used : The A and B sides of “Beautiful Scenery”

Today I created two cards – one with snow and one without snow to visually show the difference. Which is your favorite? My husband prefers the snow covered pinecone while I prefer the one without snow.

The pinecone and evergreen die is from Spellbinders flora collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn.


Thanks for stopping here today to visit.

Hello friends.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a frosty slimline card created using a classic Maja Design holiday collection, Winter is Coming. It’s NOT to early to start those holiday cards.

I really wanted to use a winter design that didn’t have traditional winter colors.  This collection was exactly what I needed.  The print on the paper is frosty but yet unique. I also used a sheet from the Monochrome Shades of Winter – Warm White .

The dies and stamps are from Spellbinders new collections.  The Friendly Snowmen stamps were colored using Spellbinders colored pencils.

Thank you for stopping here today.  You are appreciated.  Happy crafting.

Welcome Friends.  Jennifer Snyder here with some cards featuring the beautiful new Tropical Garden from Maja Design.  My theme today centers around the strong purple parrot image.

Here is an image of the collection.  What stunning colors and rich imagery.  I want to show that this collection is also great for strong cards as well – maybe for times when florals are not needed.

The papers used today are as follows: Purple Parrot, Big Leaves, Subtropical ( both A and B sides of the paper) as well as Monochrome sheets from the Shades of Tropical collection.
