Hello & Welcome to my post today! Samantha here and today I wanted to share this Christmas card using the Elegant Christmas Tree die. This is one of my favourite Christmas themed dies, and while I love paper piecing I often find it overwhelming with intricate dies like this. Colouring is a perfect way to get a similar effect – it’s also much more quicker and less messy!
Step 1: Using alcohol ink friendly cardstock die cut both parts of the Elegant Christmas tree die. Place the detailed Christmas tree onto the Christmas tree base. Use a pencil to trace the details on to the Christmas tree base.
Step 2: Select your Copic markers (RV00/RV02/RV04/RV06/RV09) to colour each individual detail traced onto the Christmas tree. Use as eraser to rub out the pencil lines.
Step 3: Continue to colour until all the details are coloured in.
TIP: No need to colour within the lines – it is best to colour slightly out side of each lines.
Step 4: Adhere the die cut detailed Christmas tree onto the coloured in Christmas tree base. Next adhere the Christmas tree onto a pink card base (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm).
Step 5: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.
Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the small stars from the Elegant Christmas Tree die.
Adhere the larger star to the top of the tree and embellish the tree with the rest of the smaller stars.
Step 6: Die cut a circle using pattern paper, stamp the sentiment – trim to create a half circle. Adhere the sentiment onto the card base.
Step 7: Embellish card with a twine bow and sequins. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.
A fun, bright Christmas card without the mess! Hope this inspires you to try it out yourself.-
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Fala Planner Page.

Reapply ink to the stamp as needed. Sprinkle Charred Gold Embossing Powder over the stamped images. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Distress the edges of the page. Ink the edges of the page using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Karen here today sharing a couple cards made with the cutest elves ever! They are a brand new release here at Elizabeth Craft Designs and, at this point, can only be found in your local scrapbook stores. I decided to use them with some pretty non-traditional patterned paper I recently got.
In this first card, I used the Holiday Elf-Hers Die to create the little girl elf. All of the colored pieces are cut with 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. She is colored with:
Face: Copics E000, E00, R21 with C7 eyes and white gel pen
Hair: Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo
Clothes: Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean.
Snow Globe base: Tea Dye
Here’s a close-up to show her face. Isn’t she adorable?
The Snow Globe die is also new (available in stores)! I ran it three times. Once in White Soft Finish Cardstock (base), once in the pattern paper for the background and once in silver paper for the edges. How fun. The snowflake is from the Snow Globe Dies and is covered with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.
I used the same process to make the boy card but used the Holiday Elf-His Dies.
Hello friends, Sandy Diller here, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday season. This year will be celebrated a little differently but that is no reason to cut back on the fun of the season. One of my favorite things is decorating the house and I always like adding something new. I had this wooden kit in my stash and have to confess that I started it last year but didn’t finished it until now.
I previously painted the wooden pieces with white paint. I then covered the wooden trees with ECD Double Sided Adhesive.
Once the release paper was removed from the tape I placed three different ModaScrap Christmas papers on the trees. I trimmed the paper down and then used an emery board to sand the edges (sandpaper can also be used). Hot glue was used to attach the trees to the base.
I used lots of great dies from my ECD collection to create some gifts and bows and then cut and assembled the Jack Frost die set to create the cute snowman.
After cutting and assembling the adorable little Elves I added them to the scene using double backed foam tape to pop them out to the front.
One of the final touches was to add a banner across the front after stamping it with the fun greeting.
The last thing to go on was the little gift with the long ribbon. The package is a small wooden square, painted and then ribbon was added.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have been inspired you to get creative and decorate your home for the season.
Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I am super excited to share a Shaker Card using the new winter release from Joset Designs. I absolutely love the new additions. I used Jack Frost Dies and Snow Globe dies. Below you will find the steps to create your own Snowman Shaker Globe Card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Trim Patterned Paper to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4” and adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. (I used ModaScrap 6×6 Unconventional Xmas).
Step 3 – Diecut Snow Globe (frame) 2 times using Fun Foam and 1 time using Glitter Cardstock. Use the frame to trim out a window in acetate and a piece using Patterned Paper. Adhere the trimmed Patterned Paper using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape and the 2 layers of Fun Foam diecuts using Kid’s Choice Glue. Add Sequins or Sprinkles to the middle and secure it with the trimmed Acetate window using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Adhere the Glitter diecut to the top using Kids Choice Glue.
Step 4 – Diecut Jack Frost in various colors of Cardstock. Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Diecut Snow Globe (bottom base) using Blue Cardstock. Stamp Joyful Wishes Sentiment on the Snow Globe diecut using Versamark. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a Heat Tool and adhere to card using Foam Tape.
This was very quick and easy to put together and it almost feels like having the real deal. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
