Santa Is Coming!

December 24, 2019

Here Comes Santa Claus! Hello – Samantha here…with my last Christmas card for the year! I completely love the idea of Santa’s alternative mode of transportation portrayed in this card…I can totally see him giving Rudolf the night off and flying around in this modified Safari Jeep!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut green card stock to fit an A6 card base. (Measurements: 114mm x 162mm)

Step 2: Die cut the Adventures Edges wave die using white cardstock and to create a snowy background. Adhere to card base – trim.

Optional: Add machine stitched details.

Step 3: Using red, black and white cardstock die cut the Safari Jeep. Put aside the grill, side mirrors, and head lights to die cut (see Step 6) with silk microfine glitter.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment on the ‘Safari Jeep’ bumper.

Step 5: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to red cardstock. 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: Die cut the remaining ‘Safari Jeep’ parts – grill, side mirrors, and head lights.

Step 7: Die cut the Santa using red, white, cream and black cardstock.

NOTE: Only the top half of Santa is required for this card.

Step 8: Assemble and adhere the Santa die cut peices together.

Step 9: Adhere the wheels to the card front, and start to assemble the Safari Jeep.

Step 10: Adhere Santa to the card front. Using pattern paper and cardstock die cut the presents (from Santa’s Sleigh die) and adhere them to the card front.

TIP: Before permanently adhering the Santa and presents check that they align with the Jeep.

Step 11: Adhere the Jeep over the Santa and presents. Adhere additional die cut presents to the card front. Die cut and adhere Santa’s bell using gold card. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.

Happy Crafting –– hope you enjoyed my final Christmas card for this year and that Santa will be visiting you tonight (preferably with some brand new crafting goodies!)

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Magic

December 21, 2019

Merry Christmas!  It’s Suzanne here today with a last minute Christmas card!

When I created this stamp, I knew it would be versatile when used with the dies.  And when I went to create this card, I was torn!  What would the focus be?  Christmas?  Believe?  Magic?  We have all three dies available to choose from!  I guess I should make one of each card, but because glitter was on my mind, I decided that a shiny “Magic” would be the focus.

This is how you can make this card:

Cardmaking Inspiration from the Design Team Planner Essentials Silk Microfine Glitter

Tis’ The Season

November 25, 2019

Hello There! Samantha here, sharing a card I created using Elizabeth Craft Design Planner dies. Masculine cards are not my speciality –– in fact I generally try to avoid them. This card is probably as close to masculine you’ll get from me (and even then I couldn’t resist adding pretty sequins and a twine bow!)

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut red card stock to fit an A6 card base. (Measurements: 114mm x 162mm)

Step 2: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive (3mm & 6mm) to black cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Basic Black). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 3: Trim the Basic Black Glitter cardstock to create thin strips of glitter card.

Step 4: Using black cardstock cut additional strips varying in thickness (3mm to 6mm). Adhere these to the red card front, including a few Basic Black Glitter strips. Trim off any excess card.

Step 6: Next, adhere strips of black card and strips of Basic Black Glitter card in the optional direction as shown below. Trim off any excess card.

Step 7: Stamp the sentiment using embossing ink, apply black heat embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Adhere this to the card front.

Step 8: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.

Step 9: Use corrugated Kraft cardstock and die cut the reindeer.

Step 10: Use red cardstock to die cut the reindeer’s nose.

Step 11: Adhere the reindeer to the card front. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

This card is definitely in my top 10 makes for 2019 –– I’m not sure how masculine this card truly is but I loved creating my own tartan plaid background and Rudolf has always been my favourite reindeer!

Happy Crafting!

A Little Bird Told Me…

November 19, 2019

This is Diane with a winter card for you!

Up North in Quebec, winter has shown its nose quite early this year and we’ve already had our first snow storm! That triggered my motivation to start my Christmas cards and this one was oh so much fun to make. A little bird told me that it was about time I started playing with the new winter and Christmas dies from Joset’s collection, so I did just that!

Here are the steps to make this card:

Step 1: Background

  • To make this card you need a 11 X 5 1/2 inches piece of White Soft Finish cardstock, folded in half to make a square 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 inches.
  • Cut a 5 1/4 inches square out of some red cardstock.
  • Cut a 5 inch square out of some patterned blue cardstock.
  • Adhere each layers on top of each other with some Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 2: Bird house

  • Using the Dog House (#1668) die set, die cut the house in a light brown cardstock;
  • With some red cardstock, die cut the roof of the dog house;
  • Die cut a dark brown square to cover the back of the door.

Step 3: Wreath

  • Using the wreath in the Reindeer (#1681) die set, die cut it in green cardstock;
  • Using the same die set, die cut some big and some small lights in yellow, red and blue cardstock;
  • Using the back of the Pointed Tweezers, do some small veins on the wreath;
  • With some Kids Choice Glue, adhere the “lights” all around the wreath;
  • Add some a small drop of glue on the “lights” and sprinkle some Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitters.

Step 4: Snowflakes

  • Die cut twice the snow flakes plate using the Snow Globe Scene (#1410) die set on to some White Soft Finish cardstock doubled with a Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Sheet;
  • Peel of the adhesive sheet and cover with some Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitters. Rub off the glitters with fingers to make the snowflakes really sparkle.

Step 5: The bird

  • Die cut all the parts of the bird and the branch out of White Soft Finish cardstock using the Winter Bird (#1685) die set;
  • Color each part with ink markers.
  • With Kids Choice Glue, adhere some wiggle eyes on the face and glue all the parts of the bird;
  • Roll slightly the bird on a pen to give it a bit of dimension.
  • Die cut the snow for the branch White Soft Finish cardstock doubled with a Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Sheet;
  • Peel of the adhesive sheet and cover with some Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitters. Rub off the glitters with fingers to make the snow also really sparkle;
  • Adhere the snow on the branch.

The final touch…

  • On the card base, and using some Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape, adhere the bird house (dog house) on the card;
  • Put some foam adhesive on the back of the wreath and the branch, and adhere both on the card;
  • Put some foam adhesive on the back of the bird and adhere to the tip of the branch;
  • With some Kids Choice Glue, adhere the snowflakes on the background.

Here’s an other look at the final card !

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and hope to see you again soon!

Glittered Peace On Earth

November 9, 2019

Hi, Diana here! Today I’m sharing how to make a card you might have seen as part of Suzanne Cannon’s holiday release. Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Silk Microfine Glitter is the ONLY glitter I will use in my craft room because it’s the only one containable! And it’s so fun to watch it turn glossy – very satisfying like the way heating up gilding or embossing powders.

To make the card, I die cut the A Way With Words Peace on Earth die 4 times out of white card stock. I also cut out one out of white card stock that was covered in a sheet of Elizabeth Craft Designs double sided tape as well as a set of extra star dies that come with the die set.

Cover the stars with the release paper from the star die cuts.

After peeling off the release sheet from the Peace on Earth die cut, cover the starts with the release paper from the star die cuts. In this way, you can cover the sticky die cut with Silver Sand Microfine Glitter and rub in the glitter. Remove the star release paper and then add Sand Dunes Microfine Glitter on the stars. I also went ahead and did one of the stars with Sand Dunes and 2 others in Silver Sand.

Making the stars a different color makes the words pop more.

I then adhered the other 4 layers to the die. The background is sponged using Distress Inks (Broken China, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire) – the keeping the center a lighter blue. I adhered the layer onto an A2 white card base, finishing the front with a white gel pen for stars/snow.

The layered die cuts add a lot of strength and dimension to the card while still laying flat.
Loving the glitter against the dark blue background.

Thanks for looking! I wish you could see how shiny the lettering is and how deep the blue looks in real life. I liked this so much I made a very similar card but using the new Flourished Deer die set. I did not use glitter but added a wreath around his neck using tiny leaves I trimmed from the Leafy Branch Die and tiny dots of the pearl rose Craft drops.

Thanks for stopping by –– I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!

Let Love Bloom

October 31, 2019

Hello! Welcome! Samantha here, sharing my love of all things gold and glittery… I was so excited to get my hands on the new Craft Drops that I wanted to share a different way of using them. A perfect match with the latest release Cherry Blossom Branch die.

Card Instruction:

Step 1: Die cut the Blossom branches and adhere these to Kraft cardstock.

Step 2: Using different shades of pink and purple card – die cut the blossoms.

Step 3: Using a small brush or finger spread the Craft Drop paste on to the edges of the blossoms.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment.

Step 5: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.

Step 6: Adhere all the Blossoms.

Step 7: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to pink cardstock. 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 8: Die cut the remaining blossom dies. Adhere these to the blossoms on your card front.

Step 9: Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

I love how shimmery the gold sparkles off the blossoms – the photo doesn’t do it justice!

Happy Crafting!

Sneak Peek With Falalalala

October 12, 2019

Have you started on your Christmas cards yet? It’s my favorite time of the year and I love making Christmas cards. Here’s one I made this week with a sneak peek of new dies from A Way With Words that will be available later this month.

How do you decorate your halls for Christmas?

I don’t know about you but in the years of cardmaking under my belt, I never once thought to alter designer paper. I used it as is or hoarded it. I will sponge the edges sometimes but it depends on the paper – the glossy ones don’t take to sponging very well. But I had a bit of an epiphany making this card.

The white die cut shows up better on the darker paper.

I knew I wanted to use this beautiful wood grain paper from Through the Lens paper stack but the white die cut got kind of lost in it. Normally, I would add a black drop shadow to it to help but then I decided to use a couple of Copic Markers in the tan/beige hue to darken it up just a bit while retaining all the lovely woodgrain. I simply colored the entire sheet with the markers. Aaah – now the (coming soon) Falalala die cut show up so much better.

I used 2 rectangle dies to trim down the paper – nesting the smaller die inside and then adding a black 1/16th inch matting to it. I popped that back in with the larger (now open) wood frame onto an A2 base card layer.

As you can see, I still went with a black die cut of Falalalala to add a drop shadow. The new Flourished Holly dies conveniently come in layers so I was able to do a Forest Green silk microfine glitter on the outline, Soft Green on the leaves, and Bright Cranberry for the berries.

I also added a white embossed “Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly” on black card stock in the upper left corner. Having all the words in white tied the card together nicely. Now tell me you didn’t look at that card and automatically sang the lyrics to yourself. 🙂 Thanks for looking and have fun making those Christmas cards!

The lyrics in white just pop!
