Hey Friends! It is EK and I am so excited to be playing with my craft supplies today. Have you see the huge holiday announcement….the new Joset’s die collection has dropped over at Elizabeth Craft Designs! This release is filled with all kinds of wonderful Christmas and Holiday dies and a sentiment stamp.
Today I am playing around with the new Sleigh and Reindeer die set to create this cute Christmas card.
Step One: Die cut the Reindeer die set from some 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Color up the die cut pieces using alcohol markers. I used my copics (E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, R24, R46, and R89). I then adhered the pieces together to with some Kids Choice Glue.
Step Three: Repeat step one and two with the new Sleigh die set. I used my copic markers to color it up (R14, R17 R46, R89).
Step Four: Repeat step one and two with the gifts in the new Sleigh die set. I used my copics to color these presents up (B24, B26, B28, BV02, BV04, BV08).
Step Five: Repeat step one and two with the tree pieces from the new Sleigh die set. I colored the tree up with my copics (G09, G19, G29, R17, R46, R89, BB24, B26, B28, BV02, BV04, BV08).
Step Six: Adhered the gifts into the sleigh.
Step Seven: Trim a piece of Sky Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches and fold and score at 6 inches to make a 6×6 card frame. Then die cut a piece of printed It’s Christmas Time paper with the new Stitched Indented Squares die set. Adhere the die cut piece to the card frame with some 10mm clear double sided adhesive.
Step Eight: Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the sleigh, tree and reindeer to the card frame. Trim off any pieces that hang off.
Step Nine: Add some blue snowflakes from the tiny snowflake in the new Joyful Wishes sentiment stamp set.
Step Ten: Add some shading under the reindeer and sleigh with alcohol markers (I used copic markers N0, N2, N4) and stamp a sentiment from the new Joyful Wishes stamp set.
I hope you are as excited about this new release as we are. Let us know in the comments below which pieces of the release you are most excited to use. Until then, Happy Crafting.
Good morning all!! Kathy here, with two of the wonderful new dies just released in Susan Tierney Cockburn’s newest collection –– Lupines and the Garden Watering Can!
Lupines come in so many beautiful colors, it was fun to pick these three! You could also make Texas Blue Bonnets with this die if you’d like!
The Lupines are very easy to make, and aren’t they such pretty and happy flowers? Makes you realize Spring IS right around the corner!
I’ve used several colors to give character to the Watering Can, and added Ladder Fern, Baby’s Breath, and Ivy as fillers; all on an embossed piece of decorator paper. The Watering Can is sitting on paper from the Wood Effects paper. And, of course, all of these flowers were put together with the Kid’s Choice Glue.
Again, don’t forget to add the ladybug to one of the leaves!
Keep checking Susan’s Garden Club for her Live tutorials of her new release!
Hope you enjoy making these lovely new flowers as much as I have!
See you soon!
