Cozy Winter Vibes

November 23, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here with another creation today. This time I made a double card with the label die. And of course a shaker part on it. Shaker cards are my favorite!

First you take your cardstock and fold it in half. Then you take your die, place it a little bit over de edge of the fold and die cut. This way that side wil not be die cut.

This way you can made a double card with the label die. I love to use the die this way.

In front of this card I made a shaker part with the snowglobe die. First I cut out the die from craft cardstock. Behind this part I made a transparent sheet. With foam tape you make the shaker part.

For the background of the shaker part I made a scenery with the moose and a cute little gnome. The gnome has a Christmas ball in his hands to add to the trees in the background. The trees are from the Mason Jar set. I love these trees and use theme a lot. Specially for winter scenes.

After that I put some shaker material in the shaker part. This time I choose some shaker material from Picket Fence in the colors white and blue. These colors are matching perfect with the background paper that I used. The background paper is one of a paper pad from Moda Scrap.

Now you can make the shaker part on your double tag card. How lovely is this! You can add some ribbon on top of the card through the tag whole or just leave it as I did.

I hope you like this double tag shaker card as much as I do.

See you next time!

Merry Christmas

November 3, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here! Today it’s my turn to show you a creation. This time not a Halloween creation, but a Christmas card. I used dies from the new Cozy and Warm collection that were just released last week at Elizabeth Craft Designs.

For this card I used the Holiday Stocking die and an older background die from last year. I made a shaker card with it.

First I made a tray for the shaker material. I made this piece exactly the same size as the background die. In the tray I put the shaker material using different types of products. I like to mix the different types of shaker materials.

To close the shaker part I die cut one slimline background from white cardstock and adhered this piece on top. I really love this background die. He is a great fit for this card.

After I made the Holiday Stocking. For this I used colored cardstock in the same colors as the shaker material. To finish the stocking I added little Christmas Bells that I attached with some small pieces of hemp cord. Now they jingle like a Christmas sound.

On top of the card I made a banner with the text Merry Christmas. This is a sentiment from the Holiday Treats stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with the new distress color lumberjack plaid and on top of that I used distress glaze to finish.

Lastly I backed my shaker with a decorated piece of patterned paper and white cardstock in the same colors at the stocking and shaker material. Now your card is Finished!

I hope you enjoyed my shaker card and hope to see you again soon!

Greetings Alice

Autumn is Calling

October 20, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here! Today I wan’t to show you an autumn creation. Here in the Netherlands autumn has arrived. All the leaves are falling off the trees, such a beautiful time of year! So I made a card with this theme.

First I started to make a background. This time I made a background only with two colors off Distress Ink. I chose the colors Faded Jeans and Pumice Stone. On the bottom of the card you start with the Pumice stone. On the top of the card you take the Faded Jeans. In the middle you combine the two colors and then you have a lovely autumn background.

Then I made some trees. I used the trees that are from the mason jar die. Love those trees, they are really great to use for many projects. I’m not placing the trees on the bottom of the card but a little higher so it looks like a real forest. On the bottom I used some decoration to cover the stems of the trees.

After that I made the lovely mushroom. Perfect fit for this autumn theme card. I choose some paper that fits in the autumn colors. Normally I love intense colors, but that’s not fitting for this autumn theme.

Now I made the super cute gnomes. They are not only for the Christmas creations but are also cool for all sorts of cards. So I made a girl and a boy gnome so they can play together with the falling leaves in front of the mushroom house.

To make the card complete, I added the sentiment “leaves are falling, autumn is calling”. So fitting for this card. In front of the gnomes I added some falling leaves.

I hope you like creation and gave you some inspiration to make your own autumn card. See you next time!

Witchie Halloween

September 8, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here! How are you doing today? It’s my turn again to show you a fun card creation. And as you know I’m a huge fan of Halloween so I couldn’t help myself to make another Halloween card for today’s blog post. This card was an absolute joy to create. I love creating cards using dies from different collections and that is exactly what I did for this card. A few of Esther’s collection and a few of Joset’s. Below you can find out how I created this card.

I started with the little witch. I made her from different colors cardstock. And do you see how brave she is with the bat on her arm? It’s her little Halloween friend.

After I made this little witch, I made the background. I made this one with a mask stencil for clouds and some distress ink Chipped Sapphire. Love how this color works for the clouds in this theme.

After that I used a die from last year. It’s a planner die, but it combines perfectly for this card. There are three planner dies from last year in the Halloween collection. The text Halloween above the witch is also from a Halloween planner die.

With al these dies you can create a whole scene. I added some pumpkins in the front and the spooky house in the background.

At last I backed the scenery with some green and black cardstock to finish of the card.

Hopefully you like this card as much as I do.

See you next time!

Beary Halloween

August 23, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here! Glad to be back here again. For today’s blog post I decided to create a fun Halloween card as it is one of my favorite themes. I decided to use the very cure bear die from Joset in combination with the witch and some other fun dies. Let me show you how I created this card.

First I made a spooky background using distress ink Chipped Sapphire in combination with a mask stencil. I used the white soft finish cardstock for this.

After I made some spiderwebs for the background. This is an older die (1706). But I love to use it for this Halloween theme card. Do you like this theme also as much as I do?

When I was ready with the background I made the little bear and the witch. The bear is playing hide and seek in the pumpkin. The witch is looking after him!

The iron fence on the background I made from silver paper. Love how it turned out! Can’t wait to make another project with the Halloween dies. Hope you like this theme as much as I do.

Hoop to see you next time!

Greetings Alice

Hello everyone, Alice here! How are you today? It’s my turn to show you a project here. This time I made a card with the Planner Essentials 42 and the Monster dies. I had so much fun creating this card and I hope you will to!

One of the frames has the text Celebrate. A perfect theme for this creation. I die cut the frames in a pink cardstock. The one on the left and on the right are basic frames. The one in the middle is the one with the text. For the background I used some patterned paper with bricks on it. For a special effect I made some splatters with distress oxide in the color Peacock Feathers.

Then I made two cute little monster, one I die cut from pink cardstock and the other one from light blue/aqua cardstock. Two little friends having fun! I die cut some cookies as accessories for the pink one.

I also die cut some party accessories as decoration using dies from the Party time set. The garlands are all over the place. How fun are those!

I also added some confetti pieces all over the card using the same colors as the rest of the card. In the end I added some white splatters all over the card. Now let the party begin!

I hope this project makes you as happy as the monsters on this card. Have a lot of fun creating this card by yourself. See you next time!

Happy Birthday!

July 18, 2022

Hello all, Alice here. Today it’s my turn to show you another creation with the super cute monsters! I used the birthday flip card which is such a fun die. This set includes the Happy Birthday Sentiment and then I used Monster 1, 3 and the Party Time dies to decorate. Let’s get started!

On the front I used one of the cute monsters. He eats the letters of the text. He really is a naughty one. I die cut the monster from White Soft Finish Cardstock and colored him with blue Distress Ink. On the front I used brick paper. It is Crafters Consertium brand paper. I thought this fits perfectly with the card.

When you open the card, there is another monster hiding on the back. He’s having a party with streamers and cake. The garlands are made from the party set.

I really like how you can give the card two sides. It’s a fun surprise for the recipient.

I hope you like this card as much as I do and you wil get to work on it too!

Greetings Alice

Nom Nom Nom

July 4, 2022

Today I can show you this great fun planner page. I started working with the super sweet new monster from Joset. How cute are these little monsters! I think I’m going to make a lote of creations with these little ones.

For this creation I made two planner pages. For this I used the planner page birds on splatter page (1864).

On the frond I used paper from Moda Scrap and on the background some pink paper. It’s the same pink as the hearts from the design paper.

Love tho combine the monsters with this planner page. Used some frames from another die to put the monster in.

Moda Scrap is one of my favorite design paper. You can combine it with a lot of different themes.

I love the colors that they have. The little monster you can also make in all different colors so the combine perfect to each other.

Hope you like this planner pages as much as I do! See you next time!!

You are Mermazing!

June 20, 2022
Today another happy card from me on the blog. The weather is beautiful here in the Netherlands, so here's also a card in the sea theme.
First I made a background with distress ink. For this I used the dip technique. You first add some ink on your glass plate or craft sheet. Add a few drops of water to dilute it. This is where you dip your paper. This way you get a very cool effect.
Then I used the oyster shell card as a template. This time I didn't die cut it but I drew the outline in the center of the paper. I then cut it out. I did this in such a way that I want to make a shaker out of this.
Behind this you will soon place the colored background and the mermaid.
Then I made an acetate window behind the shell shape. I filled this with shaking material and then closed it off bij adhering the background with the mermaid against it. Picket fence has the perfect shaker material, it contains small shells.
Now it's time for the finishing touch. I cut a square slightly bigger then the shell square from designer paper and adhered the front to this. I also added a cute sand crab and some seaweed as decoration. 
This was my creation for this time. Hopefully it makes you happy. Until next time!
