How is your week going so far? I’ve managed to get all my Christmas shopping done and out-of-the-way, so I can spend my free time creating more Christmas cards!
Today’s card I created last night using the super cute Pixie Dust stamp set by Avery Elle and pairing it with their North Pole Pals stamp set, to create some Christmas fairies.
I started off by stamping and paper piecing my fairies in traditional holiday colours, before colouring in the rest of their elements and adding clear glitter to their wings. Using the word ‘magical’ from of the Pixie Dust sentiments, I put it together with the other words from the North Pole Pals set to create my own custom sentiment. I then stuck the fairies down onto my card base with adhesive foam, before finally stamping on some silver snowflakes for a bit of embellishment.
I’ve linked up all the supplies I used below, but if you have any questions, just let me know.
Enjoy the rest of your day and happy holiday crafting!
I have another Christmas card to share with you all today, this one again using a sweet reindeer from the super cute North Pole Pals set by Avery Elle.
I created a little snowy scene for my paper pieced reindeer to rest on by cutting a panel of snowflaked patterned paper by Doodlebug, and a snowy little die cut hill. I then stamped the sentiment onto the bottom of the snowy hill and stuck the panel down onto my card base using adhesive foam. Once I had finished paper piecing the reindeer, I then stuck him down onto the scene using more adhesive foam. For a little bit more dimension on the card, I covered the reindeer’s nose in glossy accents to highlight it a bit, before finally adding some clear droplets to my background to look like falling snowflakes.
I seriously cannot get enough of this stamp set and those cute images! Be on the look out soon for more holiday cards featuring them.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great night!
Wow, I’m so sorry it’s been a while since I last posted! We have been flat-out working on getting all our landscaping done, as well as completing a few other house tasks before Christmas arrives! I’m happy to say everything is now all done, and our home is now complete, so I will be back to posting more frequently and crafting more!
With Christmas just a few weeks away, today I thought I’d share a cute Santa themed card that I created using the fun Santa stamp and die from the North Pole Pals set by Avery Elle.
After stamping and die cutting out the Santa image, I then stamped him again onto some cute patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs Inc, so that I could then paper piece it onto my die cut image. To create the fun snowfall background on my card, I cut a panel of cardstock the same size as my card base and die cut it using the Vertical Snowfall die by MFT Stamps. I then stamped my sentiment to the bottom part of the cardstock panel using a sentiment from the Season’s Greetings stamp set by Gina K Designs, before sticking the panel to my card base using adhesive foam. After colouring certain elements of the Santa in, I then stuck him onto my card base again using adhesive foam. Finally, I glued some white sequins to the card to add a bit more sparkle and embellishment.
I hope this card gives you some fun holiday inspiration! I have more Christmas cards to share this week, so check back soon.
So sorry I’ve been a bit MIA from the blog lately! We have spent the past week finally doing our landscaping and putting in our lawn so it has been a tiring week and not a lot of time left for creating.
Anyway, all is back on track now so today I’m sharing a Christmas card with you all that I created.
When I first saw the North Pole Pals set by Avery Elle I knew I just had to get it! The reindeers are soo adorable I just needed to create some Christmas cards with them.
For this card I kept it CAS and created a paper pieced Rudolph jumping over a silver heat embossed scribble. The scribble is from the Circle Scribbles stamp set by Papertrey Ink. I then stamped my sentiment below the scribble before adding some silver snowflake sequins to the card for embellishment.
I seriously love the cute reindeers in this stamp set! Be sure to stop by over the next few days to see some more creations featuring these cuties!
Have a great night!
Not much longer until Christmas arrives! I’ll be sharing some fun Christmas cards on the blog in the lead up to the big day so be sure to check back often for those.
Today, however I am sharing another custom order card I created this week. This one is for a guy who absolutely loves Rugby and has unfortunately been diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Rather than saying Stay Strong I went with the sentiment of “You are strong” for this card, and taking from the sentiment I used a picture of a ‘strong’ and tough rugby player for the card. You can find the rugby player image here.
After resizing the image and printing it out on some thick cardstock, I then used my Pixscan software with my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut the image out. Still using my Cameo machine, I then created the ‘strong’ text and electronically cut that out from some metallic cardstock. Once I had positioned the image and text onto my card base I then stamped the ‘you are’ part of my sentiment onto the card base before sticking the other elements down using adhesive foam for dimension. I then added some enamel dot embellishments to the card.
I found out later that the recipient of this card is Irish and it just so happens that the colours I chose to use on this card are actually the Irish rugby teams colours! I hope this card manages to brighten his day somewhat.
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great night!
