Christmas card set

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m again stopping by to share a set of Christmas cards, created using the gorgeous Sweetest Christmas collection papers by Mintay Papers. I love this collection! Here is what I made this time:

I did some fussy cutting for these cards too, by the way. And since the papers are so very sweet on their own, I didn´need to (and also didn´t want to) add much. Just some Nuvo Drops and stamped sentiments, that´s it!

I don´t know if you can see it, but there are some key lime clear drops here and there on the green parts to add dimension and texture. And on the white areas I´ve added some snow mimicing details with white glitter drops. Also some pink glitter drops were added very randomly for additional sparkle onto the poinsettia leaves.

I also added some brown Distress Ink around the edges of one card, it immediately gave the card a more vintagey look. Love that effect on this paper! And the cards still are very flat so sending them on their way will not be too expensive. Dimensional cards tend to be expensive when mailing them and also rather easy get damaged on the way. No such problems with these ones 🙂 !

Wishing you a great start into your week! We are still on lockdown here in Austria. How are you holding up at your end, lovelies? Some days I´m ok with everything and other days, well, let´s just say, are not that great. Hope everything is ok at your end, peeps!!!

Take care,

Joy to the world

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today I´m again filling my stash busting goals with this card! I´ve got a whole sheet of snowflake stickers used on this one. Yay!!

For the background I used my snowflake stencil that had some residue ink on it, so I misted it and pressed the ink onto a piece of white paper. You can barely recognize the pattern here and there, but I still really like the subtle look. After adding the STAMPlorations clear sticker sentiment and the super old snowflake stickers from my stash (yay to stash busting again!), the card turned out pretty nice.

That´s all for today! How are you getting along with Christmas cards this year? I have a few made, but I think they will not be enough, so I need to make a few more still.

Hoping your day is lovely!!! We are again on lockdown light in Austria and it´s starting to get to me. I miss my people! I´ve been really good the whole time so far since March, keeping the circles very small and all, but I miss seeing friends and loved ones. And who knows how long this will go on!! I think the winter time makes it even harder. Going to be along wait until spring arrives and we can at least enjoy our garden again, if nothing else.

Hoping everything is good at your end during this crazy time. Take care and stay safe!

Christmas card set III – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies and happy Saturday!!! Today I´m sharing my final set of Christmas cards, created with the Wild Hare Kits December kit.

For this set I´ve used mainly the patterned papers from my December kit: Pink Paislee Together For Christmas, Crate Paper Snowflake and Heidi Swapp Winter Wonderland collections.

For this card I arranged both the Pink Paislee and the Heidi Swapp paper onto the background, then added a few stirps of the Heidi Swapp collection washi tape and finished the card off with a piece of Crate Paper collection paper, adhered on place with 3D foam.

For the second card I used the beautiful patterned paper from the Crate Paper collection and added a stickers from the same collection sticker sheet on top and finished the card off with faux stitching.

And for the last card I used one of the Pink Paislee collection papers on the background, then added a focal point from the Crate Paper collection paper into the middle with 3D foam and decorated it with a piece of ribbon.

That´s all for today. Tomorrow I´ll be sharing another layout, created with my December kit. So if you want to see it, do stop by :)!

Happy crafting,

More Christmas cards – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies and happy Friday!!! Today I´m again sharing another set of Christmas cards that I created using my The Wild Hare Kits December kit.

Here is what I did:

I kept my cards very clean and simple for a change! And I love how they turned out, even though I just used a few things on them!

For this card I again used the beautiful stickers from the Crate Paper Snowflake collection and added some stamping with the stamp set from the same collection. Easy, fun and simple!

For the second card I used the Crate Paper Snowflake collection ephemera pieces and a few stickers from the Snowflake sticker sheet. Just adhered everything on place, added the faux stitching and the card was done! Soooo easy!

And for the last card in this set I did the same like on the previous one. I love that little snowman image, it´s sooo cute!

So that´s it for today. There is one more set of cards coming up tomorrow, so if you want to see them, do stop by! And then there are still two more layouts coming up, before I´ll share my monthly kit wrap up on the 31st!

Happy crafting!

A set of Christmas cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it´s my last guest blog post time over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today and I´m sharing a set of clean and simple Xmas cards over there. I created quite a few Christmas cards this year, but I still ran out of them, so I needed a few simple, fast and easy ideas to create a few more. So for these cards I deciced to use mainly just the die cut dies and colored cardstock. So if you are looking for fast-to-make cards, this might be exactly what you are looking for.

Here is how I created the cards:

  1. Die cut Soft Finish Cardstock with die cut dies of your choice.
  2. Arrange onto card bases and adhere.
  3. Stamp the sentiment.
  4. Decorate with liquid or glitter pearls. Done!

For the above card I also used a small piece of patterned paper, because it reminded me of snowfall. But you could also use colored cardstock (blue) instead and adherd the die cut snowflakes on place.

I´ve also recorded a start-to-finish video of the steps for you to watch! I hope you enjoy watching it and give this idea a try!

This is my last guest blog post and it has been such a joy creating with and for Elizabeth Craft Designs the past year. I hope you have enjoyed my bi-montly projects and got inspired to create a card or two!

Wishing you all a lovely holiday season and
happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
