Holiday CreateAthon Day 2

By November 2, 2019 November 3rd, 2019 Holiday CreateAthon


The holiday season is right around the corner and the team at Ink to Paper is excited to create and share projects. Fall is the season of gratitude, which leads right into the Christmas season of giving. We wanted to dedicate the month of November to a marathon of creative inspiration using our holiday themed stamps and dies. Crafting during the holiday season is very popular, and our collection of stamps and dies will surely inspire you to create along with us throughout the month.

Get ready to learn some fun facts about the company, designers, and of course amazing new ways to create cards, gift tags, and more!


Let’s take a closer look at the gratitude themed product collections we are featuring for today’s CreateAthon! Laurie Schmidlin has shared an amazing card to showcase her gratitude.


Just Sentiments: Grateful Heart Stamps


Inside Greetings: Gratitude Stamps



“Sometimes I struggle with adding sentiments to my projects.  It’s easy to forget what an impact sentiments can have to a project.  I tend to plan the images and then try to fit a sentiment in as an after thought.  I have found it helpful to start creating around a sentiment.  For this card, I started with the sentiment from the Inside Greetings: Gratitude set and was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to design around it!  After stamping that sentiment, I thought about pairing it with a die cut sentiment.  From there I decided to add a coordinating sentiment (from the Just Sentiments: Grateful Heart set) stamped randomly on the background layer.”
