Susan K Weckesser and Unity Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Susan Weckesser/Unity Blog Hop!
We are hoping to inspire some quick and easy Christmas card ideas! Featuring this adorable itty bitty stamp designed by the fabulous Susan K Weckesser....


One of the things I like to do when coloring multiples of the same image - I pre-stamp out the image onto my paper (usually I fill an entire 8.5 X 11 or two - depending on how many cards I plan on making). And then when I am in front of the tv or want a quick "grab and go" project to take with me, I will bring my coloring along. Once all the images are colored then you can production line your cards making it quick and easy to get multiples done!

I know that one of my style signatures is using lots of layers and lots of sewing, which may make this card seem more complicated than it is. Once I design my initial card, if I want to make multiples of the same I will production line all my cutting. And to simplify the design even further I would skip the sewing. Using dimensional adhesive also really helps with the layered look and it takes no more work than applying regular adhesive.

Another "cheat" that I like to use is stamping my sentiment right onto a label sticker...each card could have a slightly different label and it would still be super cute!
