Hanging Winter Mitten Pull Tab Card

Card Flat

Hello crafters! Mary here with a fun interactive winter card. The new Winter Mittens from Joset Designs are so adorable. I decided to make mine out of felt, alhtough you could use cardstock instead. For the card, I wanted to do something different. The Hanging Charm Pull Tab was out of stock for a while at ECD so when it finally came back in, I jumped on it! The mitten fits perfectly inside the frame. Yes! Continue reading

Noel Holiday Card

Elizabeth Craft Designs Suzanne Cannon Noel Christmas card Kathy Jo 1

Hello Crafty Friends! I am very excited to share a project using one of the newly released Elizabeth Craft Designs dies designed by the lovely Suzanne Cannon. This card is super easy to make and perfect to mass produce for Christmas. Also, the card can use some of those scrap pieces of paper you have stored in a bin for a future project. (woo-who!) The papers do not all have to be Christmas patterned papers, either. The card sample today only used one Christmas patterned paper and the beautiful Noel did the rest!  Let’s get started!

Pop it Ups Wednesday with Sandy – Snap

Hi and welcome, it’s Sandy Diller here today.  We recently returned from a wonderful trip to Europe where we took lots of photos.  We visited so many beautiful places and noticed other people taking photos as well.  Some were serious photographers and some were so funny as they posed for their selfies.  Jinks the Monkey is joining the rest of the tourists today and snapping a selfie.

You’re So Sweet Macarons Card

Hi Everyone,

I’m very excited to be showing you a card using one of my new designs, the Macarons. I love this French specialty made out of two meringue cookies and a sweet cream filling. They come in so many delicious flavors and I haven’t had one that I didn’t love. In the small town where I live there is no place that sells this cookie but luckily a neighboring town does, so every now and then I treat myself to one. This delicious cookie was the inspiration for the die set and the card that I am sharing today. Let’s get started!

Gingerbread Man Topiary Tree Cards

Gingerbread Man Topiary Tree Cards
By Judi Kauffman


Topiary 8

I’m back as today’s guest designer with a project that takes the new Joset Designs Gingerbread Man die in an unexpected direction: As a shape for topiary* trees. Did you know that one of Santa’s elves is a gardener when he’s not getting ready for the holidays? Well, that’s how I imagine it…

These cards are designed for someone blind or with impaired vision, as well as for the sighted. For those who ‘see’ by the sense of touch, the textures tell the story: Shimmer Sheetz, a wooden stir stick, felt, Velvet Adhesive Sheets, cork, woven and knotted seam tape, layered rectangles made of heavy cardstsock. I shut my eyes as a test and was able to figure out everything but the greeting, though I think I would have had a tough time with the leaves if I hadn’t already known what they were.  (*Dictionary definition – “Topiary: The art or practice of clipping shrubs or trees into ornamental shapes.”
