Hello! Samantha here, welcome! When December 1st rolled by, I was already in Christmas mode! In fact, I’ve been looking forward to Christmas for awhile and couldn’t wait to put up our Christmas tree… Here is my Christmas card inspiration for today.
Step 1: Cut pink card stock to fit an A6 card base. (Measurements: 114mm x 162mm)
Step 2: Die cut the Adventures Edges wave die using pattern paper and cardstock to create a fun colourful snowy background. Adhere to pink card base – trim.
Optional: Add machine stitched details.
Step 3: Stamp and die cut the stars.
Step 4: Stamp the image, colour with your preferred medium. Die-cut the image out.
Step 5: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to pink 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.
Step 6: Die cut the stars.
Step 7: Assemble card. Adhere the images and a stamped out sentiment to card front. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
As I had stamped the other images from Christmas Kid’s stamp set I created a second card. This time I created a starry background using the stars in the stamp set. It reminds me of one of my favourite Christmas song lyrics: “Children playing, having fun” – Shakin’ Stevens Merry Christmas Everyone.

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I am sharing a super fun card using the Winter Bears Stamp set, Adventure Edges and Joyful Wishes Sentiment Stamp set. Below are the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock 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 White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. Apply Distress Oxide Ink starting from the bottom using Tumbled Glass, then working into Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire. Create a snowfall effect using white acrylic paint on a paintbrush by tapping the brush. Let dry.
Step 3 – Diecut Adventure Edges 2 (the hill die) 2 times. Adhere bottom layer to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Stamp Joyful Wishes sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the top layer. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.
Step 4 – Stamp Winter Bears images using Gina K Amalgam Ink on White Soft Finish Cardstock. Colour the images using colour medium of your choice. I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers. Diecut images with the matching dies. Adhere using Kids Choice Glue to some images and Foam Tape to the remaining images.
Step 5 – Optional – For added interest and sparkle randomly adhere Jewels using Kids Choice Glue.
The Winter Bears Stamp set is still one of my favorite stamp set for my holiday cards. You can mix and match using other Krista Schneider sets to create many different holiday scene cards or just change the colours. Below you will find the link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Seasons Greetings Card.
I love creating with Krista Schneider’s stamps as there are fabulous designs and are the perfect images to add to any project you’re working on. You’ll want to read below as I have a tutorial for you on how to recreate my card at home!
Step One. Choose a piece of Christmas patterned paper. Die cut a 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of the paper. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Three. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to some of the circles from the Circle Background and stamp randomly onto the square. Reapply ink as needed to the stamp. Sprinkle Golden Rod Molten Dimensions Embossing Powder overtop of the circles. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. From the Words 5 – Winter Wishes die, die cut the Seasons Greetings sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the sentiment.
Step Five. Next, you’ll need the Poinsettia Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the poinsettia stamp and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the berry sprig stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink two more times to the berry sprig stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the holly branch stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink to the holly branch stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the pine branch stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink two more times to the pine branch stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.Colour the images in using a waterbrush and Tombow Markers 847, 249, 177, 026 and 969. Die cut the images out using the coordinating Poinsettia Dies. Ink the edges of the images using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Six. Adhere the emboss square to the black soft finish cardstock square. Foam square the black soft finish square to the patterned paper square.
Step Seven. Adhere the holly branches, pine branches and berry sprigs as desired in behind the poinsettia. Foam square the poinsettia to the middle of the embossed square.
Step Eight. Adhere the Seasons Greetings sentiment to the right side of the poinsettia. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4 3/4″ x 9 1/2″, score at 4 3/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Seasons Greetings Card.
