Holiday Card Series 2018 - Day 5

Hey peeps.  I hope you have been enjoying the tutorials I have so far for you.  Today is Day 5 of the Holiday Card Series 2018. I'm sharing a really cool stamp set and die bundle from Concord & 9th today.  I LOVE how this card turned out as it's dimensional and super cute to boot. If you missed any of the card series to day you can find all the videos here.

This card will fit into to a regular size A2 card envelope however, when the recipient opens it, it will pop up and stand on it's own.  Such a cool way to wow a recipient.  The stamp set and dies are called Christmas Cottage.  There are a few measurements you need to be aware of.  You will need three pieces measuring 5 x 3 and one measuring 6.75 x 4.25.  Now if I totally just confused you, it looks like this. This is cut from a 8.50 X 11 piece of cardstock.




If you are using designer paper (which is lighter paper for any of these pieces, make sure to adhere them to a stronger cardstock so that the card holds up.  I'll share this with you in the tutorial.











Here's a quick tutorial.  You can watch it here or over at my Youtube channel mzdanajoy.  I've used affiliate links for your convenience at no cost to you.




Have a great day everyone.  I'll see you back here on Friday with another card for the holiday card series.

25 Days Of Christmas Tags

Hey peeps.  I'm participating in the 25 Days Of Christmas Tags this year and I'm super excited.  I have seen some amazing tags and the inspiration is overwhelming (in a good way).  WOW so many talented people in this crafty community. Today Technique Tuesday is the sponsor.

For my tag today I'm using the Technique Tuesday Hello Winter stamp set and the Sweater Weather crafting die cut.  I love the cozy feeling of this shaker tag.


I started off by cutting out the back of the tag and using the Sweater Weather crafting die to make a festive pattern on this piece.  Next I stamped the Hello Winter sentiment from the Hello Winter stamp set at the top portion of the tag.  I colored out my bomber jacket with Copic markers and used Tulip puffy paint for the fur around the hood.  I used black Nuvo drops for the buttons.  


I die cut out the top portion of my tag to create a top for the shaker elements.  I filled the tag with red, blue, silver and white sequins to keep everything within the color hue I was using.  I adhered down my top with double sided foam tape to give it some dimension.  All that was left was to add a top piece for the ribbon and twine to go through and tie all the ribbon and twine into a few bows. I adhered my bomber jacket to the shaker tag with adhesive.  



Thanks for stopping by today.  Make sure to swing by Tracey's blog to see all the beautiful tags that were created for today.

Holiday Card Series 2018 - Day 4

Hey peeps.  It's Monday and I'm back with the Holiday Card Series 2018 - Day 4.  I'm so excited to share with you an easy technique to produce really great cards.  No stamping required for this one and it's easy to mass product.

For my card today I'm using foil, scor-tape and a large graphic die cut to make quick, fast and a hurry cards.  You can pull out any color foil for this project and any width scor-tape.  The design concept is easy to follow and you can change it up anyway you want.

Pairing the foil with a light sheet of vellum tones down the harshness and adding glitter paper for the sentiment really makes this card stand out.

Holiday Card Series 2018 - Day 3

Hey peeps.  Happy Friday.  Today is Day 3 of my Holiday Card Series for 2018.  I'm super excited to share this card with you today as I love everything that is sparklie and embossed.  So let's see what's in store for you today.

I'm playing with some Nuvo glitter paste and Comic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish.  Using these two products together helps to create beautiful cards.  You can use any stencil of your liking with these products just make sure to clean your stencil off immediately after use as well as your palette knife.


I mean look at this sparkle!!  Using this stencil really allowed me to keep this card simple but achieve a dramatic look all at once.  Keeping the sentiment simple with the Scripty Xmas stamp set from Mama Elephant is the way to go with this kind of design.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Make sure to check out Day 1 and Day 2.  I'll see you back here soon!
