Last night I had a really fun stamping class. It was a techniques class. We made six cards, all using different techniques. I love trying out new ways of using products and creating special effects with techniques, but as much as I love using different stamping techniques, I also love to sit down and make some simple cards! Sometimes experienced stampers like myself try to make things too complicated, when in reality, cards and other projects can be kept very simple and still be beautiful. Today’s project is just that…simple but gorgeous, and it’s called the Timeless Tidings Christmas card kit.
This Christmas card kit is sooo easy to put together. Seriously. I completed it in an hour or maybe two. A beginning stamper should be able to complete it in two or three hours. All you do is sort the kit pieces, stamp greetings onto the tags, and assemble! That’s a very small investment of time to be able to hand your loved ones handmade cards for the holidays.
People occasionally tell me that they keep my Christmas cards displayed in their homes throughout the year. My thought is usually, “They keep my card hanging in their home year-round? Seriously?” Yes, seriously, because handmade cards and gifts mean that much to people. Go ahead, take the plunge and try making some for yourself with this fantastic kit that is perfect for beginners and experienced stampers alike!
Below you can see all of the beautiful pieces that come in the Timeless Tidings Christmas card kit.
What else will you need, besides the kit itself, to assemble it? You’ll need adhesive, black ink, and the Timeless Tidings stamp set, shown below. Links for these products are included at the bottom of this page.
What’s great is that once you have the stamp set, you can make as many of these cards as you like (plus your own originals!!). Order one stamp set and a few of the Timeless Tidings kits to have enough cards for all of your friends and family!
Here you can see these gorgeous cards up close. Aren’t they lovely?
The hand-painted, aged look of these cards is just stunning! Plus, each card has gold details. Gold makes everything better!
The perfect way to send a beautiful card is in a beautiful envelope. Each card in this kit comes with an equally pretty envelope – striped on the inside and gold-edged on the outside.

Do I have any experienced stampers reading? These kits are perfect for beginners, but what about you professional card makers? Are you thinking that you like this kit, but that kits aren’t for experienced stampers? I used to think that, but here is what I have decided – making 50 or 100 Christmas cards to send out can be a time intensive process, depending on the difficulty of the card. Simplifying this process, while still putting your homemade touches on a card, is not cheating…it’s smart! I would encourage you to try a kit and see how you like it!
