Perfectly Plaid Magic Slider Card ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A little bit of Christmas magic for today’s card, a fun fold slider card that reveals its little secret when you pull the tab on the top.  This has a regular card base for writing your message and will fit into a regular envelope, the slider is the embellishment on the front.

I used the Christmas Gleaming and Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Sets, then used Gold Foil and Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon to pick out the gold foil in the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.  As is often the case with fancy fold cards the supply list is quite long but oh so worth it! 🙂

Water Coloring with Brightly Gleaming Holly Leaves

welcome back to my corner of the world

A few months ago I was looking for inspiration to try something ‘now’ or ‘different’, looking in my supplies I came across my Water Color pencils.  Now I know that they are not exactly new but as I had not used them in an absolute age they were going to be ‘different’ …….   for me at least!

Since that time I have used them on a number of projects and today’s card is no different, the holly leaves/berry stamp in the Christmas Gleaming Stamp set is just perfect for coloring and so it is this Christmas card came into being!

Mercury Glass meets the ‘Stars’ Christmas Card

welcome back to my corner of the world

Last week I shared that Blue and Silver was one of my favorite Christmas color combinations and the tree in my craft room/study has blue and silver  so today’s card showcases those colors.  Showcasing Pretty Peacock and the stunning Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.

There is a minimal amount of stamping – despite that I managed to use two stamp sets – yes two – so unlike me I know! So the greeting is from the Itty Bitty Stamp Set and the little flowery star from Memorable Mosaic

Wrapped in Plaid Christmas Tags ~ video tutorial

welcome back to my corner of the world

I always forget to buy gift tags,  I have the paper, the adhesive tape and the gift, but no tags!  But I do have the supplies to make them and today I am sharing a video on gift tags you should be able to produce  quickly and easily and look so good on your Christmas parcels.

I chose to use the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper – this is a perfect way to use up some of the scraps I have left over from other projects.  I also found I had not yet used any of the Star Designer Elements from the 2019 Holiday Catalog so these make an appearance as well.

Tidings All Around ~ Christmas Wreath

welcome back to my corner of the world

I love the combination of reds and greens at Christmas – the tree in my family room has a red, green and gold theme.  Having said that I also love the combination of blue and silver – so I have a tree in my craft room/study in those colors!

The Tidings All Around stamp set was one of the first on my wish list when the 2019 Holiday Catalog came out – I knew instantly what I was going to do with it and what colors I would use.

welcome back to my corner of the world

Last week I shared the Christmastime is Here Suite and promised to share another card – once again I have focused on the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper – did I say last time that it had gold foil accents on one side? On today’s card I show one side of the paper with the foil accents and flip it over to show the pretty seasonal print on the other!
