Hello everyone, Alice here. Today I would like to show you another winter project. For this card I started working with the Igloo and the Pinguin dies both from earlier releases from Joset. I actually never made any winter creations before. I started doing this last year and I can tell you, it’s really great fun!
Let me show you how I created my card.
I started to die cut a star out of patterned paper. To cut the start I used the 1452 Fitted Stars set. I used ModaScrap papar as a base. The paper is from the “Let it Snow” paper pack.
I then made a pocket with the fuse tool for shaking material. The fuse tool is very handy for this. It takes some practice, but the end result is very useful. As shaking material I choose some playful penguins.
I made the pocket behind the patterned paper. I did this with double sided adhesive. Behind this whole I adhered an equally large sheet (15 x 15 cm) piece of Soft Finish Cardstock. Before making this one behind it, I made the penguin in the middle. What a sweetheart she is. She even put on her antlers.
In the front I made the igloo using the Igloo die set # 1569. I first cut the igloo out of white cardstock covered with Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet. After die cutting I peeled off the lined of the tape and covered the exposed adhesive with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. This is one of my favorite product to use on almost any creation. Don’t forget to brush off any extra glitter and to polish the glitter with your index finger. This makes the glitter really shine.
I matted the whole with a basic blue paper and then again with soft finish cardstock. I added a banner right at the top of the card with the sentiment “winter wishes and snowflakes kisses”.
To finish the card I added a bow on the left right from the top to the bottom. I maade the bow with seambinding. I made this color with oxide spray Stormy Sky. When you heat this it wil crumble very nicely.
I hope I was able to inspire you today. See you again soon!
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

Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today. Several people have asked me to create a Christmas Explosion Box. These boxes are easy to create and always fun for the recipient to open. Below is a tutorial on how to create this project.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with an early start on holiday cards. Recently Susan Tierney-Cockburn had a video on her Susan’s Garden Club Facebook page showing how to assemble her Poinsettias using the Garden Notes Poinsettia die set. You can view this video for instructions on how to create this beautiful flower here.
I’m sure there are special people on your list who would love to receive a keepsake card such as this one. Because of the dimension, it can be protected when mailed in one of the Clear Acrylic Boxes available from Elizabeth Craft Designs. It can also be delivered in person, attached to the top of a box or the front of a gift bag, or placed inside the box or bag along with the gift.
‘Tis the Season to build a Snowman! Hi, its Selma Stevenson today. It is always fun to build a snowman and dress him up. You can stay warm and build cute snowmen to create birthday or holiday cards using the Stylish Snowman die set.
