Joyful Wishes Mini Slimline Card

November 21, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I had my Jack Frost dies out and I wanted to create a female snowman so I took out my inks and some older Elizabeth Craft Design Products and love how it all came together. 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 Cardstock to 3 1/4” x 5 3/4”. Apply any inks of your choice using a Blender Brush. I wanted a rainbow sky. I used a pink, orange, yellow, green and blue ink. I splashed some water. You can see I had an accident as a big blob of water spilled on my background. I decided it was a happy accident and went with it. Let dry then adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Village Edges using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to the snowbank only.

Step 4 – Diecut Jack Frost and Winter Accessories in various colors of cardstock, use the same color inks on White Soft Finish Cardstock. Assemble and adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 5 – Stamp Holiday Sparkle sentiment using the same pink ink used in the background.

Step 6 – Diecut Diagonal Fishtail using the sentiment from step 5. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

This is a fun card to put together. You can change it up by changing it to a male snowman and/or changing the colors. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Sending You A Flurry Of Love Mini Slimline Card

Adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Snowflakes from the Classic Christmas Special kit and adhere to the panel created from Step 2 using Kids Choice Glue.

Easy slimline Christmas card in rainbow colors

November 3, 2021

Hello everyone and happy November! It´s Sanna here again with another card tutorial share. This time I´ve got something fun to share: a clean and simple card that originated from last months card project´s leftover pieces. This is a fun way to use up paper strips and create cool looking cards. Hope you like the idea!

Here is how I created this card:

Step 1: I had some colored paper strip (see my October card tutorial share) leftovers from the previous cards, so I took the Classic Christmas Special Kit snowflake die and arranged the snowflakes on a slimline card sized piece of white cardstock and die cut them with my die cutting machine.
Step 2: I placed the die cut snowflakes aside and adhered the colored paper strips behind the negative snowflake areas to create the striped-snowflake-look.
Step 3: Next I took some pearlescent blue watercolor and added random color splatters onto the white area of the background for additional detail. You could also use regular watercolors here or add ink spray splatters, for example. Whatever you have available.
Step 4: Next arrange the die cut snowflake pieces into the center of the card in a row and adhere them on place.
Step 5: Take a kraft cardstock piece and stamp a Christmas sentiment – stamp comes with the kit – and heat emboss it with white embossing ink. Adhere on place with 3D foam for additional dimension.

This is such a fun way to make a cheerful card. By the way, you could also replace the inked paper strips with leftover patterned papers. That would also create a fun look! For additional information, I´ve recorded a short video to give you a better idea of the steps. Hope you enjoy it!

I don´t know about you, but I just love playing with this Classic Christmas Special Kit so much! See you again next month with another card tutorial.

Take care,
xxx, Sanna

Playing with Vellum

October 25, 2021

Karen here today, sharing a couple cards I made using wet emboss technique on vellum. I know that this technique has been out there forever and ever, but I just forgot how pretty it can be.

My first card uses one of my favorite dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs – the Penguin. So cute, and so easy to make! He is cut with black cardstock and 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. The feet and nose are colored with YR14 Copic marker. I used a hat from the Santa die and colored it with R37. I cut the pieces with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive just to make things simpler to assemble. I also backed the Vellum panel with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to turn that panel into a sticker. (Then you can’t see the adhesive!) The sentiment (from the Classic Christmas Special Kit) is wet embossed with black. Some black Nuvo drops finished up this card.

For this second card, I used the snowflakes from the Classic Christmas Special Kit (and the sentiment too, embossed in gold). Again, I added 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the vellum before cutting it with a Fitted Circle die. It made adding it to the larger circle so easy. I added a Bead String with some White Craft Drops. I added some Gold Craft Drops to the snowflakes too.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen

A Little Holiday Sparkle

October 17, 2021

Hi Friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a fun take on a holiday card. Which holiday? Halloween of course! I know it’s not really a holiday but it should be. I simply love the colors and feel of Halloween with the cute images and the orange, purple and greens, my favorite colors.

I had a black panel on my desk that measures 3.50″ X 8.50″. It had already been stenciled and foiled so I decided to use it. If you do not have or use foil you could always use glitter or Shimmer Sheetz. Anything sparkly will work. This is a slimline card so the finished size is 4″X9″.

Most times I do not finish the inside of a card with stamps or die cuts but this time the occasion just called for a fun stamp on the inside as well as the outside. This stamp is from the Classic Christmas Special Kit but with all the shinny stars on this card the stamp was perfect. More shinny stars were added for some sparkly fun on the inside.

I used die sets that are both old and new cutting them all out of white Soft Finish Cardstock. Then all the pieces were colored with Copic Pens but if you don’t like to color, colored cardstock could be used or some simple ink blending could be done for a fabulous result. If you are a Copic user – I highly recommend the Soft Finish Cardstock, it blends beautifully. Although you will not see a purple, green or turquoise pumpkin in the pumpkin patch the added color is just right for this card.

All the elements were added to the front of the card and then the entire panel was added to a turquoise panel that measures 3.75″X8.75″. Happy Halloween from the Autumn Words set was stamped and heat embossed to finish off the front.

Thanks for joining me today and I will see you soon – until then – stay crafty,

Sandy

CAS slimline Christmas cards in bold colors

October 3, 2021

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest team member card tutorial. For today’s card share I wanted to create a set of slimline Christmas cards in bold colors. I did that by using actually very little supplies, so these cards are easy to replicate and do plenty of at once.

I have again used the gorgeous Classic Christmas Special Kit for creating these cards and the only thing I added to the kit was Brusho´s, metallic watercolours, embossing powders and ink. If you don´t have Brusho´s, you can replace them with spray inks, watercolour palettes or even patterned papers. Here is how I did the cards:

Step 1: Take white plain cardstock and apply the Brusho powders onto the surface. Spray water mist on top and let the colors spread on paper. You can also help a little with a paint brush and then dry with a heat tool. Once you are at it, create several different toned ones, so you can create a series of cards in the end.
Step 2: Next apply metallic or pearlescent watercolor splatters with a paint brush on top of the bold colored pieces and let dry.


Step 3: Now die cut the same amount of backgrounds using the background die from the Classic Christmas Special Kit and adhere it on top of the colorful piece.
Step 4: Next stamp and heat emboss sentiments using the stamp set from the kit. I used white, red, blue and black embossing color tones for my cards, but you can take any colour you prefer.
Step 5: Finally, fussy cut the sentiment pieces into right size and adhere them onto the card bases using 3D-foam. This adds nice dimension to the cards.

Now you have a fun set of Christmas cards, that are still flat enough to be mailed in an envelope, but will for sure cheer up the recipient with their strong colours.

I have again recorded a video for you to watch, so you get a better idea of each and every step. Enjoy!

I created a total of six cards using the same basic technique, but just changing the color combinations. I love how happy and bright there cards turned out.

I hope I could inspire you to give this idea a try and create a few clean and simple Christmas cards yourself. You can also divede the stept into several days. One day all you need to do is make the backgrounds, the next you die cut the white pieces and the day after you stamp and emboss the sentiments and on the final day you just adhere everything together. That way you could do a bigger batch of cards, too.

See you again next month with another card tutorial!
xxx, Sanna

Season’s Greetings Slimline Card

September 27, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Season’s Greetings Slimline Card.

To create my Season’s Greetings Slimline Card, I’ve used the Classic Christmas Kit from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Die cut the slimline die from the Classic Christmas Kit out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 3 1/4″ x 8 1/4″.

Step Three. Choose three of the snowflakes. Die cut one of the snowflakes twice and the other snowflakes one time each out of a piece of shimmer cardstock.

Step Four. Choose two pieces of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book. Die cut one of the ornaments out of each of one of the patterned papers. Die cut one other ornament out of the second piece of patterned paper. Die cut the tops out once out of a piece of copper foil paper. You’ll need a total of two ornament tops.

Step Five. Die cut a 1 1/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the fishtail down to 3 7/8″. Apply Emboss It Ink to the Season’s Greetings stamp out of the Classic Christmas Kit and stamp onto the fishtail. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powders over the stamped sentiment. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Six. Adhere the patterned slimline piece to the plain slimline piece.

Step Seven. Adhere a top to each of the ornaments. Foam square one of the ornaments to the middle of the slimline cardfront. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the other ornament to the left of the already adhered ornament.

Step Eight. Adhere Season’s Greetings fishtail to the middle of the ornaments.

Step Nine. Adhere one set of snowflakes to left of the Season’s Greetings fishtail as desired. Adhere the remaining two snowflakes to the to right side of the Season’s Greetings fishtail as desired.

Step Ten. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 7 1/2″ x 8 1/4″, score at 3 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

One Kit – Many Possibilities

September 18, 2021

Karen here today. I’m having such fun with the NEW Classic Christmas Special Kit. I made slimline cards using the included slimline die earlier, and today, I am sharing four A2 sized cards I made for Christmas using the dies.

The background die in this set is long enough to be used as background for a standard slimline die. On this first card, I backed the 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive before cutting it out. Then I adhered it to a piece of patterned paper and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die. From there, I added the ornament, snowflake and sentiment from the set and added some ribbon and gems.

This card was a little simpler and used some stitched circles of different patterned paper to add interest. The sentiment is stamped onto a Stitched Rounded Rectangle die and then cut off on the top.

For this card, I again adhered the background die to another piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock and then cut the ornament with it. I love the texture it added to the card. The only “new” die I used on this card (i.e. not used on previous cards) is the Fitted Rounded Rectangle.

And finally, I used the rest of the piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock with the background die on it and cut it with a Fitted Rounded Rectangle. Again, I love the texture that it adds.

There are so many fun possibilities with this set! Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
