Tri-Fold Christmas Card

It's time for a little more Christmas fun with the Die'sire Create-A-Card Christmas dies from Crafter's Companion.  This die is called Christmas Eve & it's not only a die, but it is also an embossing plate and a stencil all in one!  I simply cut the die out with my Cut'N'Boss, then kept the paper in and embossed it through the machine again, and then used Memento Ink (Paris Dusk) and a sponge to make the images pop off the paper.  Repeated that 3 times for each side of the tri-fold card.  Easy Peasy!

Have a Fantastic Day!

Pine Tree Tutorial for Gina K Designs & Spectrum Aquas

Hi Friends!  Today I wanted to share a quick tutorial using just three Spectrum Aqua markers and a few simple steps.  For my card, I used the Gina K Designs November Stamp TV Kit called Sparkling Christmas.

Step 1: Using the Chocolate Spectrum Aqua Marker, add color directly to the tree trunks on the image.

Step 2: Add Olive Spectrum Aqua Marker to cover all three trees.

Step 3: Add Moss Spectrum Aqua Marker to the edges of each tree.

Step 4: Spritz watercolor paper with water and then stamp the image.
Step 5: Using a water brush, blend the colors on each tree.

Here are my finished trees.

See how easy peasy that is?  You can do it... seriously ~ Just give it a try!

Taylored Expressions: Paper Piecing Technique

Hi There Crafty Friends!  Today I'm sharing a card for Taylored Expressions using the Paper Piecing Technique.  

I used the stamp set called A Hug in a Mug and stamped three of the mug images in Toffee Cardstock.  Then I stamped them again in various patterned papers from the Build A Scene Christmas Patterned Paper Pack and trimmed out the details with scissors.  It's such a fun way to add a design to a stamped image.  {see product links below}  

Have a great Monday!

TE: Festive Treat Bag!

This month, the Taylored Expressions designers are having fun with Gift Packaging ideas!  What a perfect theme as we prepare for the Christmas season!

I started my project with the Sack-It To You die and embossed each side with TE Embossing Folders (Snowfall & Holly).   I added the sweet snowman from the Baby, It's Cold Outside stamp set and matching dies. (links below)

On the reverse side, I added a sentiment from the Special Delivery Stamp set and trimmed it with the Stitched Circle dies and Little Bits Holly die.

Have a great weekend!
