Winter Layout and Christmas Card by Riikka

November 12, 2017

 

Hello there! It’s Riikka here today with another guest project! Or actually two, as always. Today I have a double treat as there’s this layout with a step by step tutorial and a card with video tutorial! Both of the projects are done with a winter theme or vibe. Both of the projects have a blue, white, grey color scheme, white splashes, and snowflakes. I also tried to add the winter vibe using Silk Microfine Glitter as frost and twinkly snow.

The layout is about the last princess birthday my younger daughter had. It was almost two years ago. Since then she’s gotten more into football and skateboarding. The Elsa dress I did for her for that 5th birthday fit well with the winter theme well, and she’s also a child of winter.

Gingerbread Christmas Wreath Card

November 3, 2017
Gingerbread Christmas Wreath Card

Although I love the traditional deep reds, greens and golds of the holidays, on this gingerbread wreath card I instead used brighter pinks, greens and purples to create a fun, kid-friendly Christmas card. To me, the vibrant colors remind me of the candy pieces that typically adorn gingerbread houses and people and really captures the “Candy Land” feeling. Yum!

Here’s how I made the card:

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.

Autumn Friends by Riikka

October 1, 2017

 

Hello and happy autumn! It’s Riikka here today sharing a couple of season-inspired projects with you. My first project, with the step by step tutorial, is a fall card, and my other project is a set of two ATCs. The ATCs are shown without instructions but they use the same techniques as the card.

I just love the warm, bright colors of autumn – the flaming orange and red and the golden yellow! When I saw the stamp set “Woodland Pals” I just knew it would be a perfect match to the autumn palette. So that’s how this pair of projects started.

Celebrate Every Victory

August 23, 2017

 

Hello friends, Piyanki here today welcoming you to a brand new post. Hydrangeas have been one of my favourites from the Susan’s Garden collection and I thoroughly enjoy using the hydrangea dies every single time I make a project with them. The flowers themselves are so vibrant and can be created with so many variations in the colors, just like in nature.

This time instead of using inks, paints, glitter, micro beads and such – what I usually do for backgrounds – I used some dies to create a simple, elegant white-on-white panel. I think the sentiment – “Celebrate every victory, no matter how small” – speaks volumes.
