Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. In the new Joset Designs Release there is a wonderful array of holiday dies and stamp sets. Today I will be showcasing the Holiday Bird House die set and Joyful Wishes Sentiment Stamp set, along with the Fitted and Stitched Indented Rectangle Dies. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2 size)
Step 2 – Diecut Stitched Indented Rectangles using ModaScrap Unconventional Xmas Patterned Paper. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Diecut Holiday Bird House using ModaScrap Unconventional Xmas Patterned Paper for the main house and White Soft Finish Cardstock for all other pieces. (You could use coloured Cardstock but I coloured all the pieces using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. Assemble and adhere the main house, opening and top of house using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 4 – Stamp Joyful Wishes Sentiment on the snow bank diecut from Step 3 using Versamark Onyx Black Ink. Assemble and adhere the rest of the pieces from Step 3.
This card took little effort and turned out so tweet! Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
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.
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.
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here and it´s time for my December guest blog post tutorial. It has been snowing a little here in Austria the past few days which inspired me to create a set of clean and simple Christmas cards using Shimmer Sheetz, the Ornate Snowflakes die set and Holiday Cheer clear stamp set.
Hi All! It’s Elena today and I am a bit of a Christmas fanatic. When I was a child, my parents always had poinsettias around during the holiday season and I think that’s why I always love poinsettia stamps and have amassed quite a collection. This new Poinsettia Clear Stamp set from Krista Schneider is among my favorites because it has everything you need to create a lovely floral arrangement for a classic poinsettia Christmas card. I grabbed my alcohol markers to color this version, but the coloring possibilities are endless with this set. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading
Hello everybody, Sanna here again for the Die Cut Team. A little glitter for Christmas cards is always a good idea, in my opinion. Therefore, today´s card tutorial is all about glittery stripes. Continue Reading
The shorter days and cooler nights have me thinking of Christmas. Every year I plan to make cards throughout the year to avoid the last-minute Christmas Cardmaking Race. Every year in December I craft sprint to complete the race in time. (I believe Usain Bolt would be impressed with my last-minute cardmaking sprint.) This month I have created a few cards- all of which have used the newly released die set designed by Suzanne Cannon – Love Joy Peace Christmas Ornament. Today I would like to share a traditional colored Christmas card that was simple to make and is easy to reproduce.
Hi, It’s Kelly Booth here. I knew after this year and my breast cancer journey that my Christmas cards this year needed to be Pink :). I saw a card created by Debbie Olsen and was immediately inspired to use the ECD Snowflakes to make some beautiful Pink Christmas cards.
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.
