Hey friends! It’s EK sneaking in to the blog, and today I’m creating a little post holiday blues card. I find the time after the holiday, but before the weather warms up to be the most difficult time of the year to create. Now that Christmas is over, I’m ready to start thinking about spring crafting, but that is still month’s away. So today, I thought I would just embrace my winter blues and create a cute critter card.
Step One: Trim a piece of Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×12 inches. Scor and fold paper at the 6 inches to create a 6×6 inch card frame. Trim some 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches.
Step Two: Stamp the critter images from the Winter Animals stamp set onto the white cardstock using copic friendly ink.
Step Three: Color in the stamped images using alcohol markers. I used copics and focused on shades of brown and blue.
Step Four: Die cut a frame for the card using Soft Sky Soft Finish Cardstock and the Frame It/Stitched Squares. Die cut some Rust Soft Finish Cardstock with the Garden Notes Grapevine Wreath Square.
Step Five: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere the soft sky paper onto the card frame. Using Kids Choice Glue adhere the grapevine wreath, squirrel and fox to the card frame. Add the owl with three dimensional tape.
Step Six: Using the Cute Winter Sentiments stamp set, stamp snowflakes onto the background using white pigment ink. Add a sentiment to the bottom right corner from the Cute Winter Sentiments stamp set in blue ink. I used Archival Cobalt Blue ink.
Thank you for peeking into today, and helping me embrace my winter crafting blues.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a fun holiday card to share with you. As a child, did you ever try to see an elf in the middle of the night during the holiday season? Or catch Santa placing the presents under your tree? My card was inspired by this. Here are instructions so you can make your own Elf in the Window card.
Hey Friends! It’s EK from ekgorman designs and I am sneaking in to share not one but two marshmallow cards featuring the new Marshmallow Snowmen stamp set. In our house, all winter long hot chocolate rules, according to both of my girls, and the only acceptable way to drink it is with giant marshmallows floating on the top. Needless to say, while this stamp set was not created with my daughters in mind, according to them, it was. So in tribute to them, here are two marshmallow cocoa cards for my two marshmallows girls.
Hey Friends. It’s EK, and I am sneaking in today to share a little card project that is hoping for some cooler weather and warmer drinks. It might be October, but here it is still hot, hot, hot, and I am so ready for sweaters and hot chocolate. And while there is not a break in the weather in the forecast, Krista’s new stamp collection perfectly evokes what I want it to be like outside.
It’s Frances Byrne here and it is my turn to post a tutorial today. A few weeks ago Elizabeth Craft Designs released seven new Winter/Christmas themed stamp sets with coordinating die sets from licensed designer Krista Schneider. I have used one of these stamp sets with an older set from last year to create this fun Tri-fold card.
Hi Everyone! It’s Karen here. I’m absolutely loving the holiday release from Joset Designs! There are some adorable characters that make great Christmas cards. Like the ADORABLE penguin I used in today’s card.
Hello everyone! It’s EK here and I have a little non-traditional holiday card for you today. I thought it might be fun to make something unconventional since on Tuesday the Design Team played around with Classic Christmas ideas. For me, if you say “marshmallow” I think about summer and camping. However, I love the idea of roasted marshmallows becoming a sweet treat on a cold Christmas night! So here is a little kooky holiday card for all you marshmallow lovers.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. When I think of winter and snowflakes I think white and a shimmer of blue. I knew when I saw Joset Designs’ newly released Snowflakes Die set that I had to make a glittery White/Blue Snowflake Card. Below are the steps to replicate it.
