Merry Christmas

November 29, 2020

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!

Card Instructions:

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.-

Happy Crafting!

In The Workshop

November 22, 2020

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.

Clean and simple, die cut, Christmas present tag set

November 8, 2020

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with my monthly guest design team project. This time, I wanted to create a few Christmas present tags that are fast and easy to make and thus perfect if you need to make plenty!

And this is how I created the tags:

Step 1: Take light blue (or another color you prefer) Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut rounded rectangular pieces from the cardstock with your die cutting machine.
Step 2: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive on a piece of Worn Wood patterned paper (pick a wooden pattern of your choice) and die cut the paper with the Sled die cut die.
Step 3: Now take a piece of light pink paper (for example from the Christmas Holidays paper pack) and die cut the tiny flowers from that paricular paper.

Step 4: Take another piece of Worn Wood (preferably pick another color for additional contrast) paper and die cut the upper tag pieces from that paper of your choice.
Step 5: Add pink Distress Ink around the edges of the die cut flowers for more contrast. Then adhere all pieces together/in place.
Step 6: Take a piece of (light) brown Soft Finish Carstock and using the Winter Sentiments stamp set, stamp and heat emboss the sentiment using white embossing powder. Fussy cut to a banner and adhere on place. Finish off with Craft Drops (alternatively use half pearls or rhinestones) and a piece of ribbon.

I´ve again also recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch to give a better idea on each and every step. I hope you enjoy it!

This tag idea is so simple that you can die cut several tags at once and make plenty of Christmas present tags at once. You could even sit down with your children and craft together with them. And if you change the colours, they will again look different with the same basic idea.

Wishing you a great time crafting! See you again in December with another crafty tutorial. Take care, Sanna

Summer Strawberries

October 25, 2020

Hello and Welcome! Samantha here today, sharing this fun summer strawberry card. This is one of Elizabeth Craft Designs new releases which I paired up with the Beach Sentiments stamp set. I’ve had glimpses of hot summer weather and it’s put me in the mood to share this inspiration with you.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut a card front using light pink card measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.

Step 2: Die cut the strawberries die with the following pieces of card stock:

Stems: Light green card

Leaves: Dark blue/green card

Strawberries: Various shades of pink card and corrugated pink cardstock

Strawberry Leaf: Dark Green corrugated card

Flowers: Light pink card

Step 3: Arrange and adhere the green stems onto the card front, leaving room for the sentiment.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment using black ink.

Step 5: Optional: Add machine stitched detail.

Step 6: Arrange and adhere the 3x large leaves onto the card front.

Step 7: Use foam tape to adhere the strawberries/Strawberry leaves onto the card front – arranged in a way that they appear to be dangling off their leaves.

Step 8: Embellish the card with the light pink flowers, a few sequins and a pink twine bow. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.

Step 9: Lastly, adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to a small piece of 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 circles that adhere to the middle of each flower.

It’s a very happy card and the pink strawberries (versus red) are a nice compliment to the blue/greens in this card. Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today.

Happy Crafting!
