Good morning! Laura with you today to share a wintery fun layout using LOTS of ECD goodies!
To make this layout: Step 1 – Tear a strip off one side and a smaller strip from the other side of your white soft finish cardstock and cover it with clear gesso and allow to dry or heat set Step 2- Using one of your favorite stencils and texture paste along the side of your paper then adhere your white cardstock to a patterned paper (I used Kaisercraft) Step 3 – Using your Watercolor Palette, use the three shades of blue and allow them to mingle together to create a subtle blend. using your pen add some of the blue water color paint tgo a palette, your glass mat or your craft mat. spray with water to make very runny. Using a fan brush or your favorite splatter technique add splatters to your page. Have fun with it! Heat set the paint and allow to dry thoroughly. Dry brush white acrylic paint over the raised images of your stencil! Step 4 – add a strip of cheesecloth over the stenciled area Step 5 – Die cut at least 6 Leaf and Berry Branches, 2 Leafy Branch, and 3 of the largest circles from the stitched circles from the white cardstock Step 6 – create 3 rolled flowers from the die cut circles
Hey Friends! It’s EK Gorman, and while it may be the second day of the New Year, I still want want to wish you a Beary Happy New Year with a few of my beary favorite critters!
Step One: Die cut the Koala die set from some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, color and assemble it using Kids Choice Glue. I used copic marks in Warm Gray to color the image.
Step Two: Repeat step one, except use the Panda Bear die set. I used copic markers in Cool Gray to color the Panda Bear.
Step Three: Repeat step one again, except use the Honey Bear dies set. I used copic markers in the E10-E19 range to color the bear.
Step Four: Die cut several new year themed images from the Party Accessories die set using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Color in the images using alcohol markers. I used copics in Neutral Gray N4, N6, and N8. Add gold accents using acrylic paint. I used Golden Fluids Iridescent Gold Deep.
Step Five: Adhere the party accessories to the three bears.
Step Six: Trim a piece of Cafe au Lait Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches, and score and fold the cardstock to create a 6×6 card frame. Using Distress Oxide in Black Soot, distress the cardstock to create a moody background.
Step Seven: Splatter the background of the card frame with the gold acrylic paint. Paint more paint onto some 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, let dry, and die cut using the Adventure Edges die set. Adhere to the card frame using some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Eight: Adhere the bears to the card frame using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Nine: Die cut the sentiment from the gold painted cardstock. I used the Words 5- Winter Wishes. Adhere with Kids Choice Glue.
I hope the New Year finds you hopeful and full of joy. Let us know in the comments below your favorite way to create cards for the new years.
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Seasons Greetings Card.
I love creating with Krista Schneider’s stamps as there are fabulous designs and are the perfect images to add to any project you’re working on. You’ll want to read below as I have a tutorial for you on how to recreate my card at home!
Step One. Choose a piece of Christmas patterned paper. Die cut a 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of the paper. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Three. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to some of the circles from the Circle Background and stamp randomly onto the square. Reapply ink as needed to the stamp. Sprinkle Golden Rod Molten Dimensions Embossing Powder overtop of the circles. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. From the Words 5 – Winter Wishes die, die cut the Seasons Greetings sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the sentiment.
Step Five. Next, you’ll need the Poinsettia Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the poinsettia stamp and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the berry sprig stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink two more times to the berry sprig stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the holly branch stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink to the holly branch stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the pine branch stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink two more times to the pine branch stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.Colour the images in using a waterbrush and Tombow Markers 847, 249, 177, 026 and 969. Die cut the images out using the coordinating Poinsettia Dies. Ink the edges of the images using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Six. Adhere the emboss square to the black soft finish cardstock square. Foam square the black soft finish square to the patterned paper square.
Step Seven. Adhere the holly branches, pine branches and berry sprigs as desired in behind the poinsettia. Foam square the poinsettia to the middle of the embossed square.
Step Eight. Adhere the Seasons Greetings sentiment to the right side of the poinsettia. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4 3/4″ x 9 1/2″, score at 4 3/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Hi there Crafters! Marilyn here to show you a Christmas card using some of the latest dies released by Joset for Elizabeth Craft Designs. Christmas will be here before we know it so I am trying to get a few cards ready in order to avoid the last-minute panic I have every year.
Good morning! ONE of the aspects of scrapbooking and card making that I love is sometimes when you get carried away with something and it’s a good thing! When I began this exploding box I was going to add the sleigh as a regular die cut…..then I had the idea to make it 3D….then I wanted to add the ornaments and the poinsettias …. It took me a bit to figure things out but I am quite happy with the final results.
Today I am sharing how I created the 3D sleigh which you can use to decorate your Christmas projects.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. When I think of winter and snowflakes I think white and a shimmer of blue. I knew when I saw Joset Designs’ newly released Snowflakes Die set that I had to make a glittery White/Blue Snowflake Card. Below are the steps to replicate it.
Hey Friends! It’s EK, and I’m sneaking in today to share a little mixed media canvas I created for the upcoming holiday season. Last year during the holiday season, I started putting up small holiday theme canvases throughout the house. It was a really fun way to decorate for Christmas instead of just putting up the tree. With the new release of Joset’s new holiday dies, I wanted to create some new mini canvases, and thought the new Santa’s Sleigh was perfect for this project.
Hello friends and welcome, it’s Sandy here with a fun project for you today. Although it is hotter than blue blazes here in Arizona I have been thinking about the holiday season. With all the great new dies from Joset’s recent release I just couldn’t stop thinking about Christmas and some cool snow flakes. If you like to incorporate photos in your cards for the holidays I have just the thing for you and would you believe it folds down flat for mailing?
