Stepping Into Christmas Hunkydory Card Kit

Hello crafty friends! The long summer days are a great time to start making those Christmas cards. I like to take card making on the road when I vacation with my family and kits from Hunkydory Crafts are so portable.

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

The Stepping Into Christmas Kit has a large variety of styles and all you need to take with you are scissors (or a paper cutter) Foam Squares, 2 Sided Adhesive Tape (and Paper Wishes has a new type that you can tear) and some Blank Cards.

For this card, Debbie cut 3″ width from the left side of a full sheet of Adorable Scorable Cardstock. Set this piece aside.

To make the card base from the remaining large piece of Adorable Scoreable Cardstock, Debbie scored it twice, once 1 3/4″ from the left edge and again 2 1/4″ from the left.

This makes a raised fold to accommodate for the dimensional pieces inside the card. She then glued the 3″ wide piece (that was cut away) even with the fold on the card front.

Foam tape the die-cut pieces on the inside of the card.

For this card, cut a 7 3/4″ width of Adorable Scoreable Cardstock and fold n half, right sides together. Glue a 3 5/8″ piece to the card front.

The scene on the card front is just adorable!

For this card, Debbie used a Blank White Card as the base and cut 2 1/2″ front the top of the card front only. Cover the card front and inside back with Adorable Scorable Cardstock. Foam tape die-cut corners to the card bottom and inside top corner.

Add die-cut borders and greetings and then foam tape the large die-cut Santa circle to extend off the top edge.

Cut a Blank White Card to 5 5/8″ wide and cover with Adorable Scoreable Cardstock.

Foam tape the layers of the die-cut card topper and foam tape to the card front. The card topper will be slightly larger than the base, creating a shaped card.

Card Edgers From Hunkydory Crafts

Hello crafty friends! As you may have noticed card edger cutting dies are HUGE in card making right now. Hunkydory Crafts has 2 new edgers that you just have to see!

The Flutterbye Wings Cutting Die is beautifully paired with Buttercup Paper Pack.

I used the edger to die cut a blank white card and then covered the back of the card with yellow plaid Buttercup paper.

I cut the Flutterbye image again from pink Buttercup paper and cut out the butterflies. I bent the wings and glued one to each of the white butterflies. For sparkle I glued a Cactus Sparkletz to the center of each.

This card features Pretty Petals Cutting Dies and Lacy Coral Paper Pack. I used the same technique as before and after cutting the card edge with the cutting die I covered the back with coral paper.

I die cut coral paper with the Pretty Petals Cutting Dies and then cut the center flowers from the image. After gluing them to the white flower centers I bent the petals upward and placed a black Enamel Dot on each center.

Hello crafty friends! Have you ever struggled to find just the right words for a special friend or birthday celebration? Well struggle no more!

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

The Card Making Magic Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set is loaded with charming Birthday sentiments that can be mixed and matched.

I paired one of these sentiments with Double Stitched Oval Cutting Dies, Squares & Crosses Border Cutting Dies and Country Chic Paper Pack.

A Brown Ribbon bow and sweet Sea Breeze Garden Seeds Flowers add the finishing touches.

The Card Making Magic Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set is full of lovely friendship greetings that are perfect in the best and worst of times.

Debbie used a sweet Friend sentiment and paired with it Midnight Jewels Paper Pack and Frames And Tags Collection Vanessa Cutting Dies.

After die cutting the beautiful frame from the blue/purple Midnight Jewels paper, Debbie die cut another frame from white cardstock, cut it into 1/4 pieces and glued a piece of each card corner. I love how she added Ocean Wave Sparkletz for a little glamour!

Darkroom Door Border Stamps

Hi Crafty Friends! Today I’ve got some amazing extra long Border Stamps from Darkroom Door! Each stamp is 11.8″x2.2″ and they are perfect for making scrapbook page borders, cards and even planners!

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

There are 7 stamps to chose from, but remember they are extra long so don’t forget to buy the coordinating Stamping Block.

My daughter LOVES books so the Bookshelf Stamp was a must-have for me.

I used 2 colors of ink (Rusty Hinge Distress Oxide Ink and Jet Black StazOn® Ink) and stamped the border along the bottom edge of 12″x12″ white cardstock.

I made flowers using Shapeabilities Succulent and Mum Flower Cutting Dies, Dotted Duos #2 Paper Pack, Kraft Cardstock and Coral Coast Sparkletz for the gold flower centers.

I used white and bronze ink pads, from Basics Ink Pad Set, on the flowers and wreath, leaves and butterflies from Happy Moments White Chipboard. Loops of natural Jute Twine was the finishing touch to my flower groupings.

Debbie made this beautiful card featuring Butterfly Garden Border Stamp (stamped on the left side) and Leaves Border Stamp (stamped along the bottom and top right). The barn wood paper from Country Chic and Beautiful Butterfly Dazzles™ Stickers were the perfect pairings for this card.

Notice how Debbie cut a butterfly image from the Butterfly Garden Border, and layered it with a Dazzles™ Butterfly.

The Art Studio Border Stamp is just right for this custom Creative Planner. Debbie colored her pages with Cosmic Shimmer Colours Shimmer Shakers and a mist of water.

And Yes! We have Elizabeth Craft Planners, dies and stamps! See them on Paper Wishes and May 1st Webisode!

Paper Discovery Card Builder Cutting Dies

Hello crafty friends! Today I have some Card Builder Cutting Dies, from Paper Discovery, that make putting together cards quick and easy.

Debbie used the NEW Country Chic Paper Pack (from Hot Off The Press) and elements from the Card Builder AND Layered Florals Cutting Dies for this card.

I love the stamped details (from Encouraging Words Stamp Set) and the sparkle from the Sea Level Sparkletz!

The Card Builder Cutting Dies is a handy tool that contains background and intricate frame cutting dies that make it easy to create amazing cards!

For this card Debbie used the Paper Discovery Card Building Panels Cutting Dies along with the same Card Making Magic Layered Floral Cutting Die Set that she used on the first card. I love how different they are!

The Just Believe Stamp (from Penny Black) was the perfect greeting!
