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!

Christmas card set – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great holiday season! Today I have a few more Christmas cards to share with you.

Here they are:

I used the Crate Paper Snowflake collection stamp set from my kit on these cards.

This snowman card is a one layer card, created using the stamp set only. This was a fun one to create!!

For the second one I combined the stamp set and some patterned paper residues from my December Wild Hare Kits kit. See the below list for used product. Isn´t that tiny snowman sticker just too cute???!!!!!

That´s it for today, lovelies! I´ll be back tomorrow with some more cards :). See you then!

Happy crafting,

Stenciled Christmas cards

Hello lovelies! I know I already said it´s the last set of Christmas cards for this year, but then something happened…inspiration hit me one more time and I created one more set of cards. Now this is the final set for 2018, I promise!!!

See, I found these premade Christmas themed die cut pieces in my stash and wanted to use them, so I grabbed some stencils and created a simple „frame“ for them with stencils. Then just a few bits and bobs got added here and there and here are the results:

For this card I created a border with the Lattice stencil using two green tones of Distress Ink.

Here I´ve placed the Christmas Tree stencil a little bit overlappingly and added two tones of Distress Ink, so the pattern looks like rows of Christmas trees. For this card I´ve only partially stenciled the pattern using two Distress Ink tones to create a background for the tree – still leaving quite much white space onto the card.

On this one, the presents are lying on a „stenciled ground/floor“ :).

And finally, another one with the partially stenciled background in to Distress Ink tones. Have a lovely Christmas time everyone!!!

Merry Christmas,

Clean & Simple Xmas cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it´s time for my December Elizabeth Craft Designs guest blog post tutorial. It has been snowing a little here in Austria recently which inspired me to create a set of clean and simple Christmas cards using Shimmer Sheets, Ornate Snowflakes die set and Holiday Cheer clear stamp set.

Here is how I created the cards:

Step 1: Place a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock into a die cutting machine, then place the big snowflake (or two smaller ones) on top of the paper and die cut.

Step 2: Release all the die cut snowflakes from the dies and remove the negative pieces.

Step 3: Apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape onto the die cut piece that will create the card background.
Remove the protective layer of the adhesive.

Step 4: Cut a piece of Shimmer Sheet into a suitable size and attach to the adhesive.

Step 5: Add another layer of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape onto the Shimmer Sheet areas. Adhere onto a white cardbase.

Step 6: Adhere the die cut snowflakes onto the open areas with Kid´s Choice Glue.

Step 7: Place the card into a stamping tool and stamp a sentiment with black ink onto the card. Decorate the card with faux stitching and rhinestores or other embellishments of your choice.  Repeat these steps with all cards. You can create variations by changing the Shimmer Sheet colors and the instead of stamping with black ink you can add a heat embossed sentiment to the cards.

The Shimmer Sheetz add an elegant touch to the simple card idea – just take a look at the lovely shimmer on this card:

Here are the finished cards:

This was my last tutorial for this year. I hope I have been able to inspire you to play with your Elizabeth Craft Designs products throughout the past year.

Happy crafting,

Be Brave Artist Trading Coins – STAMPlorations


Hello everyone, it´s my turn to share another mixed media tutorial over at the STAMPlorations blog today. It´s so good to be back after the summer break! Today I´d like to share my take on artist trading coins – here are the finished coins:
Now to the steps:

Step 1: Die cut 2,5 inch sized circles from kraft cardstock. Next take border stickers (from older stash) and adhere onto the circles – position as you prefer. Now take the „Barley“ stencil and apply iridescent medium thru the stencil onto the circles. Let dry properly before moving over to the next step. 
Step 2: Spray golden spray pink (preferedably with a little glimme in it for a nice shine) onto the circles and after the spray ink has dried, apply brown ink ont the stenciled areas with a foam. This way the stenciled pattern shows thru much better. Next fussy cut suitable paper pieces and adhere onto the coins with a paper glue. I used handmade paper with leaf patterns for this purpose.

Step 3: Now add a stemped sentiment. I used the „Woodland friends“ stamp set for this purpose. Stamping onto a irregular surface using a stamping tool like Misti or similar, will help to create a perfect stamp image.
Step 4: Decorate with additional border sticker pieces, glitter glue dots, fussy cut pieces of old book pages and white gel pen. Add as many little details as you.
I hope you have enjoyed my take on Artist Trading Coins. See you with another tutorial next month! Until then, happy crafting!!!
