Merry Christmas Card

October 24, 2018

 

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Merry Christmas Card. The inspiration came from ModaScrap’s Christmas Flower die. With that element of my card figured out, I added more with dies from ModaScrap, Els van de Burgt Studio, A Way With Words, and Susan’s Garden Notes to finish it off. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Rejoice Ornament

October 20, 2018

By Judi Kauffman

I enjoy making flat ornaments to mail as an alternative to greeting cards. They can go straight to the tree or hang in a window or on a doorknob. And now that it’s become something of a tradition for me, friends have come to expect them!

Suzanne Cannon’s new A Way With Words release includes a fabulous flourished candle die set that has separate pieces for a dimensional flame and dripping wax. The candle can stand alone on an ornament, but I thought the word ‘Rejoice’ added a nice bit of extra sparkle. And the lettering provides visual balance when tucked just beneath the candle – The letter ‘R’ almost touching the flourishes, but not quite.

Christmas Luminary

October 17, 2018

 

Hello friends – it’s Sandy back with you to share a fast and easy project that will add fun and sparkle to your holidays.  Yes, the holiday season will soon be upon us, whether we are ready or not.  We like to entertain and especially during the holidays.  I’ve made these fun little luminaries to decorate my dinner table and to use as place markers.  They are blank at the moment but as soon as my guest list is final I will add names using a label maker or typing and printing them from my computer.  The battery-operated candles last for a few hours so turn them on just before your guests arrive and they will last through dinner.

“Rejoice” Festive Candle Card

October 13, 2018

 

Hello Crafty Friends!

‘Tis the season to start on those holiday cards!  I know, I know.  It is “only” October – but if you are anything like me, you have to rush make some last-minute cards right before the holidays.  I seem to do this every year!  However, with the newly-released A Way With Words dies and stamps I can get several beautiful cards produced quickly.  Today’s card can be easily reproduced with festive results.

Anyone Need Some Mittens?

October 6, 2018

The best thing about winter for me is layering up!  I love sweaters and cozy flannels…

Though I am too old for mittens, I’d take them if they were offered to me by someone as adorable as this penguin.  I keep using this die set because it is just so cute and so easy to use.  Today the penguin is holding a pair of mittens made with a die set from the new A Way With Words release.  Did you know that Elizabeth Craft Designs also sells self-adhesive velvet sheets?!  It’s a perfect match!  This card came together very quickly. In addition to being a fun card to mail, it would be an extra special way to hint at the contents of a gift box containing gloves or mittens!

Make A Wish

September 22, 2018

By Judi Kauffman

Blow out the candles and Make A Wish! This is the perfect card for birthday celebrations.

The Make A Wish die set includes the sentiment – all three words cut in one piece, plus separate stars to sprinkle on the card front or use on other projects. The background is embossed, sanded and woven Shimmer Sheetz, but if you’re in a hurry use embossed background with a simple tone-on-tone pattern instead.

If you like quirky color combinations stick with purple and green as shown or change it to suit your taste and that of the recipient! Just make sure there’s plenty of contrast between the words and stars (one color as shown or use two, your choice) and the background.
