Clean and simple cards with basic fitted dies

April 7, 2021

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another card tutorial share. Today I wanted to show you how you can use the basic fitted/nesting dies to create colorful, yet simple, card backgrounds in just a few simple steps.

You only need a selection of basic fitted dies (for exampe rectangles, stars, hexacons or squares), a stamp set and a selection of colored cardstock. I chose to do a more monochromatic pattern on the above cards, but you could do more variation by picking all colours of the rainbow for a background. Here is how these cards were done:

Step 1: Pick three colours of cardstock in similar tones (I used grey, teal and blue tones). Then pick three of the smaller sized nesting Stitched Rectangles and die cut two pieces each with the smaller dies from the cardstock and one bigger sized piece.

Step 2: Arrange the pieces onto a card base and adhere them on place with Clear Double Sided Tape. Flip the card over and cut any excess pieces with scissors.

Step 3: Take a piece of black cardstock and stamp a sentiment with the “Build Your Own Sentiment 1” stamp set using embossing ink and fine white embossing powder. Heat set the powder with a heat tool and adhere the sentiment onto the card with 3D foam pads. For additional detail you can add some embossed stars around the sentiment and a few Craft Drops, if you want to.

Here are some variations on you can do using other fitted dies – I used the Stitched Hexacons and Stitched Stars:

As you can see, by changing the color combination and the dies or the sentiments, you can create cards for various occations using the same basic idea!

I´ve also recorded the steps for you, so you get a better idea of each and every step:

I hope I could inspire you to make some fun card backgrounds with your nesting dies!! See you again next month with another card idea!!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

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

A Santa Die Cut Gift Tag

December 24, 2017

Hi Everyone!

It’s time for Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow again. I can’t believe it’s my last post of 2017.  First of all, Merry Christmas. I hope you are planning lots of fun times over the festive period, however you celebrate it.  I am of German heritage and I loved getting all my presents Christmas Eve. I let the girls open a small present Christmas Eve to keep the tradition alive, we have the rest of our presents Christmas Day – stockings when we first wake up and then we have Stollen Bread with Bucks Fizz and Prosecco, then a big round of presents before a big traditional British Christmas Day meal!  We have the in-laws over this year and I love them both so much. We will have lots of good food, laughter and fun while we celebrate our first Christmas in our own home. I’m so excited!
