Manly-ish Mouse Valentine

January 9, 2018
Manly-ish Mouse Valentine

When it comes to making a Valentine for a man, it can be a bit of a challenge. How do you balance the girly hearts and doilies with a man’s less glittery sensibilities? For today’s project I have tried to do that. There are definitely feminine elements at work in this card, but the color palette and simple images help keep it from becoming too delicate. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Shimmer Sheetz Sunday: Scalloped Circle Cards and GIVEAWAY Winners!

January 7, 2018

By Judi Kauffman

Before we start today’s tutorial — We’re excited to announce the names of the three winners in the Shimmer Sheetz GIVEAWAY. Each person will receive three 3-sheet 5″ x 12″ packs of Shimmer Sheetz in their choice of colors.
The winners are Crystal Williams, Angelina Quinones, and Marjorie Isaline Dumontier. 
 
To arrange for the shipment of your prize, please send an email with “WINNER” in the subject line and your mailing address within the email to Frances@ecraftdesigns.com by January 10.
We would also like to apologize for the technical difficulties that kept some of you from being able to leave comments on the blog. We are working hard to make sure this does not happen in the future.

I’m kicking off 2018 with some super simple cards. Care to join me? Each of them uses only two dies.

Though I chose the Scalloped Circles die set for the main element on all three – an embossed and lightly-sanded Shimmer Sheetz circle, you could easily substitute other circles from the collection, Stitched or Fitted, if you prefer smoother edges.

I chose an ornate embossing folder with ribbons and flowers and combined Fire Opal Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz with its coppery look and silver core (revealed when sanded) with solid color cardstock in shades of peachy pink and orange, a palette that skews toward the feminine without being overly sweet.

Switch the embossing folder and color combination as you choose! For example: With smooth-edged circles and an embossing folder that looks like metal plates (Gold, Silver or Basic Black Shimmer Sheetz) the cards will be decidedly masculine. With a folder like Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Heart Strings (Red or White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz), you’re ready for Valentine’s Day!

Love

January 3, 2018

Good Morning.   This is Selma Stevenson today.  It is time to wish you a Happy New Year!  Our next holiday will be Valentine’s Day and nothing represents this special day better than roses and hearts (or is it chocolate for some of you?).  I have designed a card using Susan’s Garden Rose 1 die set and Elizabeth Craft Designs Scalloped Hearts die set. The beautiful sentiment is from one of the A Way With Words die sets.

A Santa Die Cut Gift Tag

December 24, 2017

Hi Everyone!

It’s time for Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow again. I can’t believe it’s my last post of 2017.  First of all, Merry Christmas. I hope you are planning lots of fun times over the festive period, however you celebrate it.  I am of German heritage and I loved getting all my presents Christmas Eve. I let the girls open a small present Christmas Eve to keep the tradition alive, we have the rest of our presents Christmas Day – stockings when we first wake up and then we have Stollen Bread with Bucks Fizz and Prosecco, then a big round of presents before a big traditional British Christmas Day meal!  We have the in-laws over this year and I love them both so much. We will have lots of good food, laughter and fun while we celebrate our first Christmas in our own home. I’m so excited!
