Be Merry Mini Slimline Card

December 4, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Do you like Gnomes because Joset Designs new Gnomes dies are so adorable. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish to 3 1/2″ x 6″. Apply ink using a Blender Brush. I used a Teal Blue color and started light in the center working out to the darkest shade at the edges. I sprinkled water as the ink reacts to water creating a snow effect. Diecut Dotted Background using the panel created. Even though this die is for a regular slimline size I used it to create a background for a mini slimline. Adhere to card front using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 3 – Diecut Gnomes in various colors of cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue. Stamp Classic Christmas Sentiment using versamark on the female Gnome dress. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder, remove the excess and heat set it with a Heat Tool. Adhere the Gnomes to card using Foam Tape.

Step 4 – Diecut Sleigh (layers for the tree) using Green Cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice. Diecut Snow Globe (bow) using Red Cardstock and adhere to the top of the tree using Kid’s Choice Glue. Optional – Apply Distress Grit-Paste to add some sparkle and texture to the tree. Let dry. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 – Diecut Santa’s Sleigh (presents) in various colors of Cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Here’s a sneak peak for my next blog post using the Winter Scenery Dies.

Mandala Christmas

November 30, 2020

Hey Everyone! It’s EK and I created two Christmas cards today using a bit of spring flavor. I just adore Mandala’s and was wondering if I could make it Charlene and Isle’s Spring Flower Mandala stencil work for a holiday card. So it turns out, you can.

Step One: Securely lay the Spring Flower Mandala stencil over a piece of trimmed watercolor paper.

Step Two: Spray several coordinating ink colors over the stencil. I used Speckled Egg, Weathered Wood, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Spray. Before lifting the stencil up, take a second piece of trimmed watercolor paper over the extra ink.

Step Three: Carefully life the stencil and let both pieces of watercolor paper dry. You get with this technique both a positive and negative print of the stencil.

Step Four: Die cut both pieces of watercolor paper with one of the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set dies.

Step Five: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the watercolor paper to an A2 cardframe.

Step Six: Using both a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, stamp images from both Oh the Joy of Christmas and Christmas Garden with alcohol ink friendly ink.

Step Seven: Color the images with alcohol ink. I used copics.

Step Eight: Fussy cut the images out.

Step Nine: Using both 6mm and 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the stamped images onto one of the cards.

Step Ten: Stamp a sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments stamp set onto the card using both red and black ink.

Step Eleven: Finish the card using both Pearl Olive and Pearl Rose Craft Drops.

Step Twelve: Repeat steps nine through eleven using the other images and card.

Let us know in the comments below if you think the Spring Flower Mandala worked as a Christmas Card. Until then, happy crafting!
