Tis the Season

August 25, 2021

Karen here today. Tis the season for me to finally get started on making some holiday cards. I usually make more than 100 and get started much sooner, but better later than never, right? Today’s batch uses the same basic card sketch. I used a few of Joset’s “critters” to create some fun cards.

I started by cutting that beautiful patterned paper at 3-3/4×5″ and a solid background for it at 4×5-1/4″. The ovals are cut using 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock with the Stitched Ovals. The sentiment is from the Classic Christmas Sentiments Set. Once I got these pieces done, the rest was just pure fun.

I used 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock and black cardstock for the Penguin. The hat is from the Santa die (red is Copic R35), the nose and feet are colored with YR14. As usual, I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make putting together the critter easier.

The Sheep is also wearing Santa’s hat. (Why not, right?) He is colored using Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress inks and a Copic R34 and W7.

Last and never least is Santa! I colored him with Copic W7, R27 and Y000 (for the skin). He’s so cute.

Well, Ho Ho Ho, that’s it for me today. Thank you for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen

May the Magic of Christmas Make You Feel Like a Kid Again !

December 23, 2018

What can I say? I love everything about Christmas – all the lights, the smells, the snow, the cold, hot chocolate, rosy cheeks, childhood memories and being with all the ones I love! I feel like a kid every time I hear a Christmas song and I cry watching all the happy-ending Christmas movies on TV. I hope that the magic of the holidays will fill your heart and that you’ll remember to enjoy every minute of the time spent creating the most wonderful memories with your loved ones.

Hi, it’s Diana with the penguins *again.* I just think they are so adorable and this particular die set just won’t go back in the packaging. It’s a good thing that dies don’t get worn out! For my card today I stacked the penguins to form a Christmas tree while holding onto the words “Merry Christmas.”  How cute are they? Read on to see how I created this card:

Warm Thoughts with Penguins and Alcohol Ink Background

September 8, 2018

The number one item on my bucket list is to see the northern lights or the aurora borealis.  It’s just too bad that I have to be somewhere really cold to do so.  Until then, I attempted to make a sky inspired by the northern lights using alcohol inks.  I couldn’t get it quite soft enough but it does have a cold nighttime vibe.  I’ll have to play some more but it’s definitely something worth exploring – those penguins are too cute to not keep going.  I think they pair quite well with the sentiment.  Please read on for the instructions to replicate the card you see below.
