Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. The Cozy and Warm release is out. I made two Mug Cards using the Warm Winter Mug dies. Below you will find the steps to create your own cards.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in a half. Diecut Warm Winter Mug (solid Mug) but off set the handle. This will create the card base. See below photo.

Step 2 – Diecut Warm Winter Mug (solid mug) in White Soft Finish Cardstock and adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Warm Winter Mug colours of cardstock to decorate the card fronts. Follow the photos below to decorate the two different mugs.

Step 4 – Stamp Holiday Treats directly on card decorated like a sweater using Versafine onyx Black Ink. On the polka dot card stamp the sentiment on cardstock and diecut Fitted Fishtails. Adhere to the card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

You can always make a shaped card from a single shape die by folding the cardstock in half and on the fold indent a little. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Sparkling Christmas Card

October 24, 2022

Hi Everyone, Katie here thank you for joining me with todays blog post! I am super excited to show you this amazing new stocking die from Joset’s new Christmas Collection, and of course I am using a ton of glitter. So grab a cup of coffee or tea and lets get started!

Step 1: Cut your stocking from your favorite card stock, next selected a 3D embossing folder and run it through your machine to give it some dimension. Next, I took my Vintage Photo Distress Ink and lightly inked the 3D pattern.

Step 2: Next apply your 2-way adhesive onto your strip of white cardstock and cut your stocking trims. I then peeled back the adhesive backing and add your choice of glitter. I used green for this sample but on my card I used Cool White Microfine glitter. (There are so many beautiful glitter choices)

Step 3: After you have assembled your stocking, cut your card front bases.

Cut your white base 4 1/4 “x 5 3/4 “and stamp your sentiment on the bottom from Joset’s new Holiday sentiments, I used “Christmas Magic”. Cut your green mat 4 1/2″ x 6″ , red mat 4 3/4″ x 6 1/4″ and your card base 6 1/2″ x 10″ scored @ 5″ 1/2″. Assemble your card as per the picture.

Step 4: With the same process by applying adhesive to card stock I cut out some holly leaves and berries from Winter Greens and applied glitter.

I pop dotted my stocking to the front of the card, added my glitter holly, added gems and speckled with white acrylic paint.

And we are done, I hope you enjoyed todays block post! I look forward to my next months post using Joset’s new Character Mrs. Clause creating a super cute baking Planner Essential page.

Take Care all and Happy Crafting >Katie<

Add Sequins of your choice to the top of the card front to the center. I used Purple Sequins and Silver Stars. Remove the release sheet from the Foam Tape and carefully secure it to the card front.
