Holiday CreateAthon Day 6

By November 6, 2019 November 21st, 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 holiday themed product collections we are featuring for today’s CreateAthon! Laurie Schmidlin and Melissa Phillips share their gorgeous cards to get you in the Christmas spirit.


Deco Notes Stamp


Inside Greetings: Holiday Magic Stamp




“My tendency  while creating, is to add layers.  I almost can’t help myself…it never looks right to me unless I’ve piled on several cardstock layers!  That is an unfortunate habit when making cards specifically to be mailed (like Christmas cards).  To minimize the bulk but still give the illusion of several layers, I try to layer the ink instead.”



“I used the fun Deco Notes stamp set to create custom corners for my card, adding and building with the small images found in this set.”
