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.

Seasons Greetings Card

December 5, 2019

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.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Seasons Greetings Card.

Santa’s Sleigh Exploding Box

September 4, 2018

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.

Holiday Mixed Media Canvas

August 17, 2018

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.
