Holiday CreateAthon Day 7

By November 7, 2019 November 8th, 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 Christmas themed product collections we are featuring for today’s CreateAthon! Laurie Schmidlin and Melissa Phillips have shared these beautiful cards to get you thinking outside of the box.

Season of Joy Stamps + Dies

Peaceful Forest Stamps + Dies





“Try using a variety of different embossing powders when stamping your trees.  I’ve used white glitter, aqua glitter, and pink glitter in two shades to create this card.  This creates lovely wintery shades, perfect for a holiday card.”



“I’ve mentioned before that I struggle with adding larger sentiments to a card with other images.  I usually always start designing a card with the images in mind first and then add the sentiments as an almost after thought.  I did the opposite with this card.  I really wanted the emphasis on the sentiments and planned the card around them.  Embossing the trees in the background for a subtle pattern was the perfect way to draw the eye to the Joy sentiment.”
