Hello Crafty Friends! Annie here with a clean and simple Joyful Poinsettia Holiday card using die cuts, embossing powders, and inks. I really love how the sparkle in Mboss Lucky Stars creates an extra shine in this card design.
Hello Craft Friends! Today Annie creates a fun and playful Santa Christmas or Holiday card. This card uses a variety of card making supplies to create texture and shimmer throughout. Take a look at how to make Santa’s beard more life-like with Amplify to make a foam texture.
For today’s card, I used the Sparkle Embossing Powder to create the beautiful snowflake on a bright red cardstock. I used VersaMark Embossing Ink to stamp the snowflake. Once the embossing powder was melted I blended some red inks with a sponge dauber around the edges of the card. This adds a beautiful glow to the card and I finished the card with a sentiment in black. This is a perfect project to be mass-produced for your Christmas cards.
The holidays are almost here and there is nothing as iconic for Christmas as a gingerbread house during the holidays. When the kids have outgrown this tradition, it is still possible to recreate the fun by using your craft supplies. In today’s project, I used StazOn Studio Glaze to fill in some of the details of this gingerbread die.
Skill: Intermediate Time: 1 hour
Using Spellbinders dies which includes two layered pieces, die cut the Gingerbread House from Rinea’s Glossy Mocha/Gold Foil. Die cut the second Gingerbread House base piece from Rinea’s Glossy Copper/Gold Foil. Use On Point Glue to adhere the layers together.
Using StazOn Studio Glaze in Valentine, add color to the candy dots in the Gingerbread House.
Continue adding color using assorted StazOn Studio Glaze colors between the die cut elements of the Gingerbread House. Allow each color to dry before moving onto the next color.
Cut cardstock and pattern paper to fit a 5″ x 6 1/2″ card base. Die cut large ovals from cardstock and pattern paper. Ink the edges with VersaMagic in Gingerbread, then adhere to the card. Stamp the phrase with VersaFine Clair in Fallen Leaves, cut to fit and mat with cardstock.
Adhere the Gingerbread House and phrase to the card with foam adhesives for dimension. Finish the card with any additional personal touches!
