Holiday Season Memories

July 28, 2019

Everything about this card reminds me of Christmas growing up. My Oma would have these beautifully painted wooden Christmas trinkets she brought over from Germany –– and every Christmas they would make their way back into her home bringing Christmas cheer and excitement into the house.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Using a variety of cardstock and specialty paper die cut all the pieces in the Holiday Birdhouse die.

Step 2: Stamp the sentiment on a kraft card front measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.

Step 3: Using red and yellow cardstock cut out 4 thin strips and adhere these to the top and bottom of your cardfront.

Step 4: (Optional) Add machine stitched detail to your card front.

Step 5: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to kraft card stock and die cut the birds from the Holiday Birdhouse die set.

Step 5: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 6: Assemble all the die cut Birdhouse pieces to the center of your card front. Embellish card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 cardbase.

Hope you enjoyed this bit of Christmas in July inspiration.

Happy Crafting!

Here Comes Santa Claus

July 18, 2019

Hey Friends! It is EK and I am so excited to be playing with my craft supplies today. Have you see the huge holiday announcement….the new Joset’s die collection has dropped over at Elizabeth Craft Designs! This release is filled with all kinds of wonderful Christmas and Holiday dies and a sentiment stamp.

Today I am playing around with the new Sleigh and Reindeer die set to create this cute Christmas card.

Step One: Die cut the Reindeer die set from some 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Color up the die cut pieces using alcohol markers. I used my copics (E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, R24, R46, and R89). I then adhered the pieces together to with some Kids Choice Glue.

Step Three: Repeat step one and two with the new Sleigh die set. I used my copic markers to color it up (R14, R17 R46, R89).

Step Four: Repeat step one and two with the gifts in the new Sleigh die set. I used my copics to color these presents up (B24, B26, B28, BV02, BV04, BV08).

Step Five: Repeat step one and two with the tree pieces from the new Sleigh die set. I colored the tree up with my copics (G09, G19, G29, R17, R46, R89, BB24, B26, B28, BV02, BV04, BV08).

Step Six: Adhered the gifts into the sleigh.

Step Seven: Trim a piece of Sky Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches and fold and score at 6 inches to make a 6×6 card frame. Then die cut a piece of printed It’s Christmas Time paper with the new Stitched Indented Squares die set. Adhere the die cut piece to the card frame with some 10mm clear double sided adhesive.

Step Eight: Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the sleigh, tree and reindeer to the card frame. Trim off any pieces that hang off.

Step Nine: Add some blue snowflakes from the tiny snowflake in the new Joyful Wishes sentiment stamp set.

Step Ten: Add some shading under the reindeer and sleigh with alcohol markers (I used copic markers N0, N2, N4) and stamp a sentiment from the new Joyful Wishes stamp set.

I hope you are as excited about this new release as we are. Let us know in the comments below which pieces of the release you are most excited to use. Until then, Happy Crafting.

Christmas In July

July 4, 2019

Hello! Samantha here, bringing you some Christmas card inspiration in July! Nothing beats being prepared six months before Christmas –– I personally try to make as many holiday themed cards as I can to avoid the crazy rush that leads up to Christmas day.

Card instructions:

Step 1: Stamp the Circle Background stamp on cardstock and pattern paper, fussy cut around the circles.

Step 2: Position and adhere the circles on to your card front (measuring: 10.5cm x 15.5cm) as shown below.

Step 3: (Optional) Add machine stitched detail to the circle Christmas tree.

Step 4: Stamp the Classic Christmas Sentiment on to the Banner die. Adhere this to your card front.

Step 5: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to white card stock and die cut the stars from the Elegant Christmas Tree die set.

Step 6: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Moonbeam). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 7: Embellish card with the glitter stars and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

Happy Crafting!

Holiday Inking

December 21, 2018

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.

Peace, Love, and Joy

November 29, 2018

Hey Friends!  It’s EK here to share a bit of holiday fun.  I don’t know about you, but I think these days people take the holidays a little too seriously and we all could inject some fun back into our holidays.  I think we as adults forget sometimes what the magic of Christmas should be, and instead craft and create elegant and fancy holiday decor.  Today I am trying to invent with my child’s mind and create a really fun and magic-filled project.
