Hey Friends, it is EK here and I thought I’d share just a bit of holiday inking with you today using some A Way With Words holiday dies. Recently I introduced my eight-year-old crafter to Distress Inks, and realized that I have not been taking advantage of all the cool things you can do with them, especially when it comes to stenciling. Then I wondered how well the A Way With Words sentiment dies would hold up as stencils and I was off to the races.
Hi there, Marilyn here and today we’ll create a fun Santa’s little helpers Christmas card. Hopefully you have all or most of your cards done by now because Christmas is almost here. For me, it usually ends up that the closer we get to Christmas the fewer people will get handmade cards because I nearly always run short of time, and this year is no exception. The good thing with this card is that once the images were coloured, the remainder of the card worked up very quickly. Below are the steps I used to create it:
It’s Suzanne here today and I’m thrilled to share this blog post with you! I thought it would be fun to see how the Gable Box could be decorated for Christmas, so I asked around…. And here are the amazing results! Many thanks to all the designers who came out to play.
It’s easy to get started…. and hard to stop! Simply die cut the Gable Box and start playing!
Hi Crafty Friends,
It’s Frances Byrne here today with another Christmas card tutorial to share with you. I have been having fun this year creating a lot of snowy Christmas scenes using Distress Oxide inks to create my skies. Christmas where I live down here in Australia is in summer, so we enjoy a hot Christmas Day with cold lunches and probably swimming in a pool. As we don’t experience snow, it is fun to create snowy scenes on paper instead.
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.
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!
Hi there Artlets! It’s Suzanne here today with an exciting new addition to your creative tool chest! I’ve created four new designs to inspire you during Christmas creating. Each of these is perfect on its own or may be combined with any number of the A Way With Words dies, clear stamps and/or stencils.
