A Way With Words

Festively Beautiful “Peace” Ornament Card

October 28, 2017

 

Hello Crafty Friends!

The shorter days and cooler nights have me thinking of Christmas.  Every year I plan to make cards throughout the year to avoid the last-minute Christmas Cardmaking Race.  Every year in December I craft sprint to complete the race in time.  (I believe Usain Bolt would be impressed with my last-minute cardmaking sprint.)  This month I have created a few cards- all of which have used the newly released die set designed by Suzanne Cannon – Love Joy Peace Christmas Ornament.  Today I would like to share a traditional colored Christmas card that was simple to make and is easy to reproduce.

Chillin Snowman Birthday Card

October 12, 2017

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s Frances here and it is my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I am playing with a couple of the Becky Seddon die sets, Stylish Snowman and Reindeer, to make a winter birthday card. I have created a mama and baby snowman for this fun card. Becky’s Stylish Snowman die set comes with lots of different options to create unique snow characters. This design could easily be changed to become a Christmas card or card for a winter birthday just by using different sentiments.

I love pop-up cards, so I have used the new General Pop-Ups die set to create the base of my card. On the front I used a couple of the new A Way with Words dies. You can use all or part of what I have done when creating your own, depending on what you want to do.

Hello everyone,

It’s Joset here today with another project using my favorite Gingerbread Man. I used this die in combination with the windmills from the Lollypop die set and Silk Microfine Glitter for the background. I created a stencil with the leftover release sheet from the Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Let me show you how I created the background and decorated the card.

Holiday Ring Accordion with Hanging Charms

December 2, 2016

Card Front

Mary here. This is a fun card that looks complicated but is fairly simple to make. I especially love the hanging charms, the silver glitter, and entwined frames.

Making the Card

1. With the main Ring Accordion die, cut two from snowflake paper (Wish List), one from candy cane paper (Magical), and two from red cardstock. Use the circle die to cut the center from both snowflake rings, one candy cane ring, and one red ring. Trim tabs, etc., off of one snowflake ring and one red ring so you just have 2 circle frames. Use the decorator edge die to cut 4 from red cardstock and 4 from white cardstock. Adhere the red edges to the back of the snowflake ring and the white to the front of the red ring.
