Introducing the brand new “Old Fashioned Christmas” stamp set by Hannah Schroepfer for Gina K. Designs! This set is absolutely gorgeous. I can’t even. Each image is prettier than the next! I will be doing a few blog posts with this set. ❤️🎄


This card is so simple to make. I stamped the truck image with the amazing Amalgam ink on Canson watercolor paper. I did very basic watercoloring on the truck using my Gansai Tambi Kuretake watercolors. I have the large set, and I noticed that most of the colors were on the bright side. I took a ceramic plate and put some of my watered down paint in a few spots on the plate, and added the tiniest touch of watered down black watercolor paint. It deepened the colors into the more vintage color palette that I was looking for.


I wanted my truck to be a really rusty red color, and the presents on top to have a vintage, classic feel. I love how the glass turned out!


Isn’t this plaid background fun? I used the Gina K. Designs Diagonal Striped background stamp in Kraft ink on Sandy Beach cardstock in one direction, and Warm Cocoa in the other direction. The combination gave such a nice rustic feel. This card would work very well as a manly Christmas card.

I used the Red Velvet cardstock for the matting of my front panel, and also for the envelope. I am so into bright pops of color with envelopes! Red Velvet is the absolute perfect Christmas red.


This work of art was created by my hubby, Stephen. He was doing pretty well until something happened with the tires. There was a technique going on there at first, trust me! But something went wrong. 😂


The design team is also featuring cards made with the new Reasons to Celebrate stamp set. I will be doing a post dedicated to this stamp set within the next couple of weeks, but here is a little sneak peek! Isn’t this the sweetest baby card?!

  1. I really love all of your cards! You mentioned that something went wrong with the tires on the truck, but to tell you the truth, I never even noticed until I read the description below the card! 🙂

  2. Love your cards! I especially love the brown plaid on the Red Velvet. It gives a very masculine feel for any time of year – and one I wouldn’t have thought of.

  3. Great cards. Love the plaid background with the car. How cool that Stephen made a card. It looks like his car is following some really deep ruts in the snow (which has turned gray as snow always does. The gray on the side is part of the snowbank on the side of the road.

  4. Really fun cards. Love the car done on watercolor paper. Kudos to hubby for joining in on your coloring fun.
    My favorite tradition at Christmas is making cookies with my children (which now has become making them with the grand kids!

  5. Beautiful cards indeed! Your hubby’s reminds me of when we get a warmer day which starts to melt the snow and mix with the earth to create mud. I know we see that a lot in our neck of the woods. But at least on a day like that most likely the sun is shining.
