Hearts Come Home Watercolor Christmas Card

Hearts Come Home Watercolor Christmas Card



Happy Wednesday Peaches! I have a lovely watercolor Christmas card to share with you today. Watercolor is so fun and easy because there’s really now way to go wrong. To start I take a piece of Watercolor Paper and my Aqua Painter. To “prime” my paper, I like to “color” the area that I want watercolored with my Aqua Painter (water only). Then I take my Emerald Envy Ink Pad (while it’s still closed), squeeze it a bit so that the ink pad touches the inside of the lid and leaves a little ink. Then I dip my Aqua Painter in the ink and create Emerald Envy watercolor. I run my painter all along the area that I had already wet with water and the ink should spread seamlessly. If you use too much water, you run the risk of getting a shopping mess and hard edges. Additionally, your project is more likely to warp. If you wish for your color to be more intense, I recommend drying in between layers and just keep adding color until you are satisfied with the results. 

The rest is really simple. I added some gold embossing, die cut a house and church from the Hearts Come Home Bundle, and added a few sequins. I just love how adding a few extra details creates so much interest. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!

Hang Your Stocking Christmas Gift Tags #GDP115

Hello Peaches! How was your Thanksgiving (if you celebrate)? Mine was great! It was my baby brother’s first year in his new house, so he wanted to host this year. It’s nestled on some beautiful property which made for great scenery for our holiday get-together. We all were a little unsure about how we would possibly fit 20-25 people in his house, but they came up with a great solution. They got some long tables, covered them with tablecloths, lined hay bales on both sides for seats, and covered the bales of hay with blankets so that they were softer to sit on. It was really the perfect set up for our Thanksgiving meal together. I’ve included pictures of our Thanksgiving down below if you’re curious. Now on to my projects for today!



This week I’m having fun participating in the Global Design Project #115. The theme this week is sharing the joy of Christmas. This can mean so many things. Perhaps you enjoy extra time family and friends or maybe baking yummy treats for those in need. Whatever the reason, this time of year brings so many wonderful ways to be joyful. Check out the Global Design Project Page to see what other great projects the team has come up with.


One of my favorite Christmas preparations that brings me so much joy is to create my own handmade gift tags. Actually, if you make a bunch of them, you can wrap them up and give them as a gift. Handmade gifts are the best!

Generally I like to begin with a set color scheme. This makes it easier for me for a few reasons. I feel like it takes a lot of the guesswork out of coming up with the perfect color combo. I can just mix and match different colored elements, creating new designs every time. I also love how I can just mass produce them easier with a set color scheme. I just cut out the same shape in all the different color combos I’m working with and mix and match. The other great thing is that if there are extra pieces, they won’t get wasted because I can just use them in another tag since they all match.

I chose to use Real Red, Emerald Envy, and gold for my colors. I added a little white here and there, but mostly just the other three colors. I took my Hang Your Stocking Stamps and Dies and began stamping and cutting a bunch of stockings from Real Red Cardstock, Emerald Envy Cardstock, and Gold Glimmer Paper. I also stamped a few in Real Red Ink and Emerald Envy Ink. After this was done the rest was easy.

I took all my stamped and cut images and began arranging them. I thought that adding some Layering Circles Dies and a few labels from the Lots of Labels Dies would be a great foundation to ground and arrange my stockings. After I assembled them the way I wanted, I punched a whole in the top so I could add string or ribbon later. That finishes off today’s projects! Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!

Merry Little Labels Treat Gift Box

Hey crafty friends! I wanted to share a fun little project with you today. I often love giving delicious treats during the holidays. I really love these adorable Mini Pizza Boxes for delivering my handmade goodies. They can be colored in any color you like and even stamped on. You can create fun tags to them for an added creative touch and even add stenciled on patterns to name just a few ideas. To top it all off, these boxes are food safe, so you can put all kinds of treats in them.



For my project today, I took a piece of patterned paper from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP) and cut it down to wrap my box. After wrapping it around my box, I cut a few circles, one from Basic Black Cardstock and one from Pool Party Cardstock, and adhered them to the patterned paper. Next, I took some Bermuda Bay 3/8” Stitched Satin Ribbon and wrapped it around my box. I then, took a stamp from the Merry Little Labels Stamp Set and stamped it in Basic Black Ink onto some Bermuda Bay Cardstock and used the coordinating punch to punch it out. I added a strand of Silver Mini Sequin Trim behind it and added it to my box. To finish it off, I die cut a few snowflakes, added a bow made from Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine, and added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Well, that’s my project for today! I hope you liked it and I’ll see you next post!
