No Sew Felt Ornament

November 30, 2022

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. When I first saw the Holiday Stocking, I knew that it would make a cute ornament. Not only that, but it would make a great way to give a gift card. I do not always want to pull out my sewing machine so I have opted for a no sew method.

Preparation: 

Cut two stockings out of felt from the Holiday Stocking die set. Also cut the stocking cuff from white felt. For this stocking, I used glittered felt. The snowflake is from the Warm Winter Mug die set. I have cut the toe and the heel from green felt.

The felt glue is a bit on the thick side. Because I want to have the thinnest seam possible, I found it easier to apply the glue around the edge with a toothpick. The glue will dry clear

Lay the second stocking on top. I prefer to weight it down with a heavy book to dry. Once dry, attach the cuff, toe, heel, and snowflake.

I added a small hole in the back and tie a ribbon loop to make it into an ornament.

For a decorative option, you can add a blanket stitch to the stocking. I marked 1/4″ into the stocking and 1/4″ apart

Using thread or floss, create a blanket stitch around the edge of the stocking. It gives a fun, handmade feel

Here are a few of the stockings that I created with this technique. It is the perfect size to slip in a gift card or money.

Believe – Santa and his Penguin

November 28, 2022

Karen here today sharing a couple Christmas Cards! Christmas is less than a month away. Do you have all your cards done? Ya, me neither – but I am making them with these fun new and older designs from Joset. In today’s cards edition, I used the new Santa Claus from the Warm & Cozy Collection and the Penguin from an older collection (still relevant and fun!).

First up is the fun new Santa Claus! He is carrying his bag full of toys for kids and adults who believe! I used red, black and 90 lb white Soft Finish Cardstock (from ECD) to create him. All of the pieces “on top” were backed with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive before cutting to make it so much easier! The face is colored with Copics E00 and R20, the beard and other gray features with Copics C1 and C3 and eyes with Copic C7. The glasses and buckle are die cut with gold cardstock. For the Sentiment, I used the new Holiday Treats Sentiment Set on top of Santa’s list that is colored with a bit of Antique Linen Distress Ink.

And one of my older favorites – the Penguin! Again, I used black, green and Soft Finish Cardstock to create this sweet little guy. The feet are colored with Copic YR14. I just love him! He is on top of a Stitched Circle as is the sentiment. The cardstock on all of these are a combination of TH and G45 that I had in my scrap pile!

That’s it for me today. Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Advent calendar

November 24, 2022

This time Advent falls exactly four weeks before Christmas. I had therefore decided that my advent calendar this year would not have 24 but 28 days. Normally I start with December 1, although that is of course not true when it comes to Advent. That also has to be processed in my planner, so I made a ticket for 28 days there. The page was created with the file folder page with pockets. On the page I pasted the curved library pocket.

In the top pocket I made the ticket with the 28 days (4 weeks) of Advent. It still has to be filled in but the 1st day, November 27, is already in it. I think I’ll put the tree up then. In the Library pocket I made an L.P. filler card that I stamped on, I made a tab on it, just because it’s possible, hihi.

The ticket I made with the Monthly overview stamp set also got some Christmas bulbs, 4, 1 for every week instead of candles. I did that with a homemade mold of sturdy paper and a Christmas bulb from the bookmark set. In the background a photo of the advent calendar I made.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Nice to see you again

Kind regards,

Marjolijn.

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!

Holiday Treats

November 21, 2022

Hello. Jackie here with today inspiration. I was playing with the new Warm Winter Mug die set and thought hmmmm I wonder if I could make a cupcake! and what do you know it works perfectly.

Step One

Die cut the solid mug part first, you do not need to cut the whole mug as we will only need the bottom half. Trim the handle off.

Step Two.

Lay the two fancy dies on to the solid cut piece, lift off the bottom die then run this though a die cutting machine creating the base for the cupcake. Die cut the fancy piece again into coloured card then glue on top.

Step Three.

Draw and fussy cut out a cake shape as shown in the photo, this will not need to be perfect as you will only see a small amount. Glue the cake in place behind the cup case then the cream on top.

Step Four.

Next, create the striped pattern directly on to an A2 top folding card blank. Trim a hand fall of pink striped patterned paper then starting at one diagonal end glue the first piece in place. cut a 1cm strip of card to act as a template to achieve the correct spacing, continue to glue the thin strips in place until the front is covered then cut off all the overhanging pieces. Repeat this step again only using thinner silver glittered card strips.

Step Five.

Use a stitched rectangle die to cut a small layer. cut this into both coloured card and vellum then attach the two together with a small piece of double-sided tape in the centre. Fix in place on the card front using 1mm foam pads.

Step Six.

Decorate the top of the cup cake with various goodies then attach to the card front using more 3d foam pads. finish off by adding a little bit of sparkle here and there along with the sentiment.

I really love the way you can create different things form Joset’s dies. I hope I have inspired you to have a go at making this cupcake card.

Happy crafting Jackie x

Clean and Simple Christmas

November 18, 2022

Hi everyone! Today Irina here with a new blog. I love making CAS cards and that is also what I’m going to show today in this blog. I used traditional Christmas colors. Hope you like it!

Start with a piece of white cardstock from 4.5 x 5.5 inch.

Now diecut the different branches and leaves. I used: 6 pieces from set 1846 (Leaves and Branches) and 6 pieces from set 1873 (Florals 12). I also diecut 6 of the little flowers from set 1873 (Florals 12).

Color them with green and red.

Start by positioning the leaves but don’t glue them yet:

Now you can position the following leaves:

Now you can glue the leaves to your base. Just put some glue on the lower part of the leaves.

Now it’s time to stamp your sentiment in the middle of the wreath. I used stampsset CS276.

After this you can glue your flowers on the wreath.

Last step: piece of green cardstock from 4 3/4 x 5 3/4 inch. Glue your card on top of the green cardstock and your card is finished.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

Until next time!

xoxo Irina!

Gift Card Tag

November 16, 2022

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. I love giving gift cards to friend and family, however, they can be impersonal. I decided to use the new tag die set and the Birthday Flip Card die set to make a tag card with a gift card holder

Preparation: 

Cut and decorate a mug from the Warm Winter Mug die set. Also gather a piece for card stock 8 1/2″ x 11″ and score at 5 1/2″.  

Using the largest tag from the Nested Tags die set. Line the tag up with the edge of the cardstock fold and tape into place

Make sure that when taping the die into place, line up one edge of the die with outside of the fold so that the fold does not cut when run through the die cutting machine

Using the second largest tag die, cut a piece of patterned cardstock

Using the same second largest tag die, add the gift card holder die from the Birthday Flip Card die set. I have secured with some post it tape so that it does not shift when being cut. Use the tag to die cut a solid piece of cardstock

Trim the tag end of the two pieces just cut to make the even across

adhere the patterned cardstock to the front of the tag card. Also add reinforcers cut using the Nested Tags die set. Adhere the decorated Warm Winter Mug to the front of the card.

On the inside of the card, adhere the solid cardstock piece with the gift card cut out. Stamp a sentiment to the left inside panel from the Holiday Treats stamp set

As an alternative to a tag card, the same can be used to create a tag with the gift card holder as well. The front of the tag has a Holiday Stocking

On the back, I have adhered a piece for cut cardstock with the gift card holder cut in it. Stamp a sentiment from the Holiday Treats stamp set. For this tag, I stamped the sentiment on a die cut from the Book Box die set.

Here are a few of the tags that I created with these techniques

Feel the Warmth

November 11, 2022

Karen here! I usually make at least 100 Christmas cards and send them out. I’m SO far behind and so glad that I have Joset’s new collection to help and inspire me. Today’s cards use the adorable new Mrs. Claus and the Sweater Season set.

How sweet is this sweater from the Sweater Season set with a bear on it?! The background papers are all from the Christmas Lives Here paper collection. (I added a Fitted Square a bit crooked just to frame the sweater a bit. I created the sweater from a green dotted G45 scrap along with sleeves that are 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock with Copic G46. Of course the waist and collar are also Soft FInish Cardstock. The sentiment tag is from the new Nested Tag set and the sentiment itself is from Holiday Treats.

I absolutely love Mrs. Clause! It’s like putting together a paper doll from when I was younger. She is so super sweet. Her feet and dress are cut from the same G45 dotted paper I used in the sweater. The rest of the pieces are cut with 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I used a Copic E00 on the skin, the Copic G46 for the collar and bottom of the apron, and the C1 for the hair. I cut her sweet little glasses with gold cardstock and added some lace and twine. Cutting the pieces on top with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive makes it so much easier to put together!

Thank you for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen
