Christmas Porch Easel Card
by Sue McRae

20201206_083516c

Hello everyone! Only a few days left until Christmas! I hope you have all your shopping done and cookies baked!

I’m stopping in with my last card for 2020 and final Christmas card with the Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Set.

20201206_083138c

My first decision was colour palette and decided on turquoise and red, one of my favorite colour combos.

This card is easy to put together, it’s just a matter of die cutting all the pieces in your chosen colours.

Once I adhered all the house pieces I decided to add a couple of large trees from the Evergreen Trio on either side of the door. I have three layers of white cardstock and the top layer is silver glitter cardstock. This gives the trees some thickness and make them stand out from the porch front.

The snow on the roof is white glitter cardstock and the greenery hanging on the front door is from the very tip of the large Holiday Mistletoe die.

For the inside of the card I have two sentiments. The white circle sentiment was heat embossed in silver and I tripled up the Holly Merry Christmas for some added dimension.

Thank you so much for joining me today and I thank you for following along with all my posts this past year. I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and all the best for a great 2021!

Welcome Christmas
by Nancy Penir

Christmas Greetings, all! Hoping you're enjoying the holiday season, even with all that's plagued us this past year. I have a card to share that hopefully brings some cheer along with inspiration, using some dies that can be used any time or season.

The Townhouses trio is a fun set of 3 townhomes with separate roofs, allowing you to change up the colors. My card today uses them on a shaker.

After I folded my 4 1/4 x 11" cardstock I positioned my square frame where I wanted the shaker to be. Then drew within the square window.

I kept the pencil mark faint, but you can see where it's drawn (if you look carefully). Then I used post it notes to create a barrier for sponging.

The sponging was done rather randomly, slightly heavier on top, sort of like a snowy flurry.

Here's a closeup of the townhomes. I decided to add 'snow' to the rooftops (embossing) and doubled the homes so the windows would have a bit of contrast.

Snowflake sequins are the sweetest shaker elements, don't you think? 

Despite a year of chaos and turmoil, it's still the most wonderful time of year. And my prayer is that you find peace and joy in the beauty of the holidays. Blessings!

Santa's Garden
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_7716-wm

Hello Friends!

Today I am sharing a sweet little holiday card taken right from Santa's Garden! It seems as if there's always a reindeer or an elf or a penguin hanging around Santa's yard, trying to catch a few zzzz's before the big trip! I took a few summer garden favorites and turned them into a winter scene. Take a look!

IMG_7713-wm

I started with the Country Garden Wheelbarrow, added Whittle Rudolph, and adhered them with a few foam pop dots. From there, I just cut out a few branches, berries, and leaves in holiday colors to create a winter garden scene.

I added a big red Mod Poinsettia, and a few embellishments for the reindeer nose and a few Christmas sparkles, to create this simple and sweet garden scene.

Thanks so much for joining us today!

Simple Bird House Pop Up Easel
by Jeanne Jachna

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day!  It's December so let the countdown to Christmas begin!  I know you're making seasons bright with all your creations this month! 

Poppystamps-Bird House-Jeanne Jachna-4

I'm smitten with a fussy card but they're not always so simple to make.  I am always in awe and then find the directions too complicated for me to reproduce.  I love  the easel dies at Poppystamps.. they make a fussy looking card super easy to make with all the dies you need to make something extraordinary.

I mean, does it get easier than this?  You cut out all the pieces and then assemble them, and BAM! You have a gorgeous fancy fold easel card that looks fussy but isn't.

Poppystamps-Bird House-Jeanne Jachna-5

Even the inside panel is separate so you can stamp a sentiment or leave it blank for a personalized note.  This sentiment is from the Poppystamps Christmas Time stamp set.   I love the script font and heartfelt message.

I cut the snowy drifts from glitter paper.  Did you know that Memory Box has 6" pads of glitter paper?   I added some light distress inking on the birdhouse front panel to bring out the lines on the paneling.  A few half pearls make shiny red berries added to the evergreen boughs.  I used a sharpie to color the  face of the cardinal and a dot of Nuvo drops form an eye.

Easy peasy right?   Crafting doesn't need to be complicated.. it only needs to be FUN!  Hugs!

Bird House Card
by Candice Crawford

IMG_2878

Hi there crafty friends, Candice here. I am back on the blog today to share with you another festive card design. Today I am using the Bird House Pop Up Easel Set. This 10 piece die set makes the cutest bird house that can be used all year long. This die set can create a standalone pop-up easel card or you can use the dies to create a simple focal point image for a card front. 

83CE429F-5202-44C8-818E-A4727FE4C3E7-27FB60D5-3241-403F-8C23-568B61B662E9

I chose to make a standalone bird house focal image for today's card. I used a couple shades of brown and cream card stock from my stash to create the base and roof of the bird house. I also used a woodgrain embossing folder to create the faux wood design on the birdhouse for extra demension.

There is only one bird die in the set. However, the die can be flipped to create two birds facing in opposite directions. The details on the neck and beak of the birds are colored in with my Copic markers

VYGO5910

 The snow accents were made from a Snow Marker and quickly dried with a heat gun to create the added snow dimension.

The sentiment "Tis the Season" was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with fine detailed white embossing powder. The greenery on the card uses two shades of green card stock for added interest. I think this card is absolutely stunning. There is so much detail and tons of layers and dimension. Although there were several steps for making this card, I do think it is a great option for mass producing for this year's Christmas cards to family and friends. 

Thank you all for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed this card share and found inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting.
