Winter Wishes Snowman card

January 7, 2021

Hello and Happy New Year 2021! It´s Sanna here again with my January project share. I wanted to create a winter themed greeting card for this month and used the cute Jack Frost die by Joset with Planner Essentials Christmas Figures tree die to create the winter scene.

Here are the steps to the card:

Step 1: Die cut a strip of white paper with Adventure Edges to create a DIY stencil from paper. Use it to ink the background could pattern onto a white card base.
Step 2: Apply a Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut the tree from Planner Essentials 34 Christmas Figures die set. Make sure the adhesive is on the backside when die cutting the whole tree, but pointing towards you when die cutting the filigrane tree die piece. You will need the adhesive on top of be able to add glitter later.
Step 3: Now die cut the Snowflake from white Soft Finish Cardstock (also add an adhesive sheet on the back here too for easier adhering). Also die cut a few snowflakes using the Snow Globe die set, but this time again make sure the adhesive is on top.


Step 4: Using Distress Inks, apply color to the tree and the snowman parts. I used tones: Gathered Twigs, Old Paper, Black Soot, Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean and Spiced Marmalade.
Step 5: Apply Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter onto the filigrane tree piece as well as the snowflakes.


Step 6: Adhere the green inked tree onto the card base and attach the filigrane, glittered tree piece on top. Now build the snowman together and adhere all pieces on place.
Step 7: Now use the For You stamp set by Sue Smith in combination with Joset´s Winter Sentiments to create the sentiment: “Winter Wishes” and stamp that onto the bottom of the card with black stamp ink. Apply the glittered snowflakes onto the background and the card is done.

I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. I hope it gives you an even better idea on each and every step of this card.

I hope you enjoy this little card tutorial and get inspired to create fun wintery cards yourself! Wishing you all a nice January!!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

You’re Cool!

December 27, 2020

Hello! Welcome – Samantha here. With Christmas done for another year I wanted to share a card that stretches the use of Christmas themed dies. I’ve partnered the Jack Frost die with Cute Winter Sentiment stamp to create this fun general card perfect for any time of the year.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Create a card front using light blue card (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm).

Step 2: Using white soft finish card die cut the snowy ground using Adventure Edges dies. Adhere these to the card as shown below.

Step 3: Using a different shade of light blue die cut the three snowflakes from the Snow Globe die – adhere these to the card.

Step 4: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.

Step 5: Die cut all the Jack Frost pieces and assemble him onto the card front.

TIP: I enjoy adding texture to a card – using felt material was an great way to make Jack Frost look and feel like a fluffy snowman and it die cut perfectly with Elizabeth Craft Design dies.

Step 6: Stamp the sentiment, trim and using foam tape adhere it to the card front.

Step 7: Adhere the googly eyes. Die cut additional Jack Frost buttons to use as snow drops on your background.

Step 8: Embellish with some sequins, and a twine bow. Switch out the die cut Jack Frost paper buttons for some gems/enamel dots to add additional interest to the card.

Step 9: Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

Thank you for stopping by – I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you get some time during the holiday season to continue using these beautiful Christmas themed dies for some not so Christmassy cards.

Happy Crafting!

Joyful Wishes

December 14, 2020

Hey Friends! It’s EK, and today I am playing around with the newly released Holiday Elf- Hers and seeing if I can play with her in ways beyond just the holidays. After all, there are a bunch more elves than just holiday elves. I thought I would play around and see if I could make her into a convincing woodland elf and with the help of the Mushroom House Folding Card I think I was able to come up pretty convincingly with that.

Step One: Die cut all the pieces (minus the elf’s hat) of the Holiday Elf- Hers die set and the stocking cap and trim from the Winter Accessories die set out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Using colored pencils, color the skin and hair of the elf. I used my Polychromos pencils.

Step Three: Color the elf’s clothing and stocking cap (from the Winter Accessories diet set) dark brown with colored pencils.

Step Four: Color the rest of the elf’s clothing a mid toned gray.

Step Five: Using Kids Choice Glue assemble the elf.

Step Six: Die cut the pieces of the Mushroom House Folding Card and some of the accessories out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Seven: Using Distress Oxides color the mushroom card frame. I used a combination of Pumice Stone, Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap.

Step Eight: Using Distress Oxides color the natural elements. I used Rustic Wilderness for the grass, Wild Honey and Victorian Velvet for the flowers, and a combination of Hickory Smoke, Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap.

Step Nine: Using Kids Choice Glue, assemble the card. Using Joyful Wishes stamp set add a sentiment to the card.

How else do you think you could use the Holiday Elves all season long? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, Happy Crafting.

Christmas present packaging set

December 6, 2020

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna here today with my last project for this year. Today I’d like to share a little set with you, consisting of a Christmas gitft tag, a Christmas card and a tiny Christmas box.

I’ll share the steps for the box as well as the tag, the card is done in the same way as the tag.

First take a piece of patterend paper in your choice of pattern and colours and die cut it using the Pizza Box die.

Now take a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and back it with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet. Then die cut the circles, the flower pattern and the scalloped square piece with your die cutting machine.

Next adhere the scalloped square piece onto the box. After that ink the flower piece in two tones (I used Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet and Festive Berries here) to create more interest to the pattern. Then take the negative pieces and ink them blue (I used Distress Ink Salty Ocean for these parts).

Now adhere the flower pattern and the negative (blue inked) pieces in place. Then finish this step of the box by building it together.

Next add the same blue ink onto the bigger circle using an ink blending tool. Then take the smaller circle piece and add a stamped sentiment to it (I used Build Your Own Sentiment 1) and ink the edges red. Now layer the circles on top of each other and add Craft Drops around the inner circle for additional decor.

For the gift tag I combined the Pizza Box die cut set with the Planner Essentials 21 Note Pieces.

First die cut the pieces shown in the gallery above. I used white cardstock and the same patterned paper that I used for the box as I wanted to create a fun matching set. After die cutting, repeat the inking, stamping and assembling process like on the box before.

For a fun additional detail I added a stamped sentiment (I used the Winter Sentiments stamp set here) on top of the layered circles for both the card and tag. It just adds a little additional detail to them.

For the card I used the same Pizza Box die cut set and additionally die cut the patterned paper for the background using the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set. The other steps are exactly the same like on the tag and the box before.

And by using only three colours it’s easy to keep the set harmonious. This gift set is perfect to carry a bracelet or small jewellery of some kind. If you change the color combination, you can easily do a completely different looking set using the exact same steps. Imagine using black and white and a hint of gold. Since the patterned paper I used is from my older stash, I added a few alternative paper suggestions to the product list below that I think would work nicely with red, white and blue color combination.

I hope that I inspired you with my little Christmas gift set today. This set could also easily be put into mail for those loved ones who we cannot see this year. I wish you all a lovely holiday time even though the situation we are all living in at the moment, is different then usual.

Wishing you all the best for this holiday season and lots of health!
xxx, Sanna
