See How to Create a Snowflake Spinner Card

I adore blue and silver as a holiday color scheme (or any time of year, for that matter), so for the Frosted Blue color challenge, I created this card with a frosted-looking inside scene (courtesy of Creative Medium mixed with VersaColor) and a fun spinner element in the front-panel frame. The Rinea foiled paper is sturdy enough to hold its shape, even when cut so delicately, making this card a real display piece for the holidays.

Learn How to Create a Daisy Flower With Dewlets

by Arjita Sepaha Singh

For today’s card, I used the new Dewlets Die to create a beautiful paper daisy. I used the die to cut out a few petals and adhered it on the card panel with the On Point Glue. Then I created a striped pattern on the card base using washi tape and VersaFine ink. To jazz up the flower I added tiny dots using the Pico embellisher, which is super shiny and dimensional. I finished the card with a sentiment “Wish Big”. This is a perfect project to be done with kids.

Time: 30 minutes

Learn How to Make a Holiday Card with a Gel Press and All-Purpose Ink

by Kassy Tousignant

Winter is right around the corner and I love when the snow covers the landscape! When I received the Frosted sampler pack of Rinea papers, I couldn’t resist making a winter card with a cute penguin stamp. I didn’t have white Creative Medium to make my snowflake background, so I mixed some All-Purpose Ink in the clear Creative Medium and achieved great results! I created a wintery background with Doodlestix, a Gelli Press, All-Purpose Inks, and Fireworks sprays from Imagine.

How to Make a Gingerbread House Garland

by Jennifer Vanderbeek

How to Make a Gingerbread House Garland

Die cuts and a few choice supplies combine to create this darling little gingerbread house garland. Not only is it perfect for the holidays, it’s an ideal craft to let kids help decorate (after the embossing is done!) and it would also look super sweet at a fairy tale themed event—think Hansel and Gretel and the witch’s house in the woods. A fun technique used in this project is layering the StazOn Studio Glaze while still wet. Drawing the tip of the Claret StazOn Studio Glaze bottle over the Cotton White made for near-seamless candy cane stripes once dried. Also, I’ve found it helps to be very generous with the Cotton White, especially on darker papers or backgrounds, if you want it to retain some opacity.
