It’s Elena today! I always love whimsical cards and the Hot Chocolate die set makes it easy to make one. For this project I combined the Hot Chocolate dies with the Snowflakes Clear Stamps to create two very different backgrounds – two cards for the price of one. (Each time ink is lifted from one background, it is stamped onto the other one!) I added touches of red for the holiday season but these could easily be adapted as winter cards after the holidays. Here’s how I made them:
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Make a Wish Note Card. With the New Year here, you always seem to need birthday cards right away, so why not get a jump start on creating some for your card box. Using a variety of dies from Joset Designs, the Entwined Circles Die from Els van de Burgt Studio and some floral patterned paper from ModaScrap this card came together quickly. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
It seems like we are all focused on Halloween and Christmas cards right now, but I thought it would be nice to take a moment to celebrate fall with a colorful bouquet of fall flowers using the new Blossom Time stamp set from Krista Schneider. I love how you can change the seasonal look of flower stamps just by changing their colors and I personally can’t resist all of the yellow, orange and red tones of fall.

Want to make some impressive cards in under five minutes? Simply emboss a piece of Shimmer Sheetz in your favorite embossing folder, lightly sand the surface on a diagonal, and then again in the opposite direction, wipe with a damp cloth, and adhere the piece to a top- or side-fold card base using Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Skip the sanding if you want more sparkle.

Here’s an oversized and over-the-top card to make for a wedding or anniversary. There is one common element – paisley patterns. The die, the embossing folders, and the patterned cardstock all have the same theme, but each is at a different scale to keep it interesting! Light bounces off the Pink and Black Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz and Pink/Silver Glitter Dots peel-offs, and the variety of textures provided by layering and embossing tie it all together.
Embossed Shimmer Sheetz Easter Eggs
by Judi Kauffman
Each year I make sparkly embossed Shimmer Sheetz Easter Eggs for my friends. It’s always a mix of hanging ornaments and cards, sometimes a two-fer card with a removable ornament on the front. I enjoy choosing the embossing folders and have a great time adding embellishments like Glitter Dots peel-offs.
This time I incorporated some of the new ModaScrap dies. I trimmed away portions of the Dandelion Fluff to create the feel of grass or nests as well as to make an egg stand! Dancing Butterflies and portions of the Lace Pocket made their way into some of the cards, too.
I usually try to limit my cards to only one or two dies but I went all-out this time, incorporating Stitched and Postage Stamp Rectangles as well as the aforementioned. The eggs are hand cut. I wanted chubby, bottom-heavy 3.5” eggs, larger than the Elizabeth Craft Designs egg die, so I drew my own pattern. (It’s a very simple shape – you won’t have any trouble drawing an egg, I promise!)
