Celebrate 2018

November 16, 2017

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team.  Did you know that it’s just over 5 weeks until Christmas which means it is just over 6 weeks until the new year brings us 2018? Sometimes we need to send out New Year’s cards rather than Christmas cards to friends and family. For my project today I have a fairly simple New Year’s card using the new Stitched Stars die set and Silk Microfine Glitter.

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.

All Is Calm

November 2, 2017

Creating cards with trees are always great to have on hand because they can be used for anyone but especially appropriate for masculine cards.  Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson today and I had fun creating a Christmas tree with a patina look.  Patina is a thin layer that forms on the surface produced by oxidation or any change of a surface through age and exposure.  I thought it would be fun to try and create the look of patina by using glitter on the new Christmas Tree die cut.  Here is how the card was created.

Hello my crafty friends!

Today’s post for Susan’s Garden Design Team is a simple little Christmas card.  Although Susan has some new releases which are wonderful I have used an older release for the simple reason I was going on vacation and there had not been a release date.  In order to have a post ready in time I went ahead and started this card before I left for vacation finishing on my return but have already started working on a card using some of Susan’s new releases which I will post soon.

Congratulations Card – Love in a Mist

October 25, 2017

 

Hello Friends, Piyanki here with  a new project using some brand new Susan’s Garden dies. The collection is fun , creative and as always immensely intricate to give your flowers the perfect shape and natural look. For today’s post I have chosen the Garden Notes –  “Love in a Mist” (Nigella Damascena) die set. First the name fascinated me and then when I researched a little about the flower, it blooms in the color blue. For a long time I have not created any flower in blue so went for it at once.

Love in a Mist is a common name for “Nigella”. The ferny , fennel like foliage makes it look all the more interesting. With the die set you have the perfect dies for the foliage which will add the natural look once you assemble the flowers. I chose to create my flowers blue for my card, however you can find these flowers in a variety of different colors.
