Memory Box Country Scene | New Years Card


Hi Everyone & Happy Holidays! I hope you're surviving the craziness which is this season. Now that Christmas is over I'm quickly doing up some New Years cards to send out next week. 
I knew that I either wanted to do a shaker card with this die, or an ink blended background. Since I was making multiples of this one I went with ink blending.  Here's how it came together:


I started by tracing my die outline on Bristol Smooth cardstock so I didn't waste ink blending where I didn't need it. 


Next, I created a galaxy type background using 3 different colors of distress ink


To create even more dimension, I spritzed the sheets with water and sopped up the droplets with a paper towel, followed by flicking on some gold watercolor paint.


To start the final assembly, I cut the die out of multiple pieces of card stock. Each card got two stacked on top of one another, with the top one being embossed with an embossing folder. 


My sentiment was printed with my laserjet printer and then heat foiled. After adhering everything together, I mounted the finished card panel onto an a2 sized note card.
And there you have it!

Holiday Cards with Elizabeth Craft



Hi Everyone, Kristina here today with another holiday card set! If you're like me you in last minute cruch mode. Holiday parties will be starting in the next week or so and its time to get these bad boys in the mail, so when I sit down to make a card I gotta just make a bunch!

This pattern was simple to recreate, here's what I did. 

First I started by cutting out a2 sized card panels, 2 from each color I wanted to use.
One for matte and one to be glittered.


To glitter then, I covered each panel with a double sided adhesive sheet to make the whole thing sticky, before die cutting. I ran it through my die cutting machine, release paper side up, with the Elizabeth Craft Circles Cover die.


I removed the release paper and glittered the adhesive side of the die cut with some microfine glitter.
After cleaning off the excess I use my finger as a brayer to really give it sparkle.



I used liquid adhesive to adhere the glittered die cuts onto their coordinating cardstock. You could also just use the double sided adhesive sheets on both sides before die cutting.
From here you have some gorgeous panels with lots of potential. 

I kept it simple but added a sentiment strip and a little stamped image


I added enamel dots made from Nuvo drops to add a little interest





 Thanks for Stopping By!  I hope you'll join me on my crafty journey, find more crafty fun on my Instagram and Facebook Page

December Challenge a2z Scrapbookin | Hero Arts Winter


Hi Everyone! It's the first of the month which means a new challenge over at the a2z scrapbooking blog. This months theme is winter wonderland!

I used the Snowflake Edge fancy die to create these bright and shiny holiday cards.

Here's what I did:
  1. First I used my clarity brushes and some distress oxide ink to create an ombre background in some fun holiday colors on a panel of white cardstock trimmed to 4x5.25
  2. Next I used the snowflake edge die to cut out some, well, snowflake edges out of assorted colors of glitter cardstock
  3. The glitter edge was too overpowering so I wrapped some holiday washi tape around the bottom of each snowflake edge.
  4. I used the Hero Arts Holidays fancy die to cut out my sentiment, which I adhered on with a Matte liquid adhesive and then stamped "Happy" from another stamp set lying on my desk.
  5. To finish I added a clear dimensional gloss overtop the "Holidays" die to really make it stand out and then added the panels onto a white a2 sized card base.
