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!

NEW Fairy, Unicorn & Castle Cutting Dies…Oh My!

Hello crafty friends! Today is the BIG day! I’m finally able to show you Hot Off The Press’s NEW Fairy, Unicorn and Castle Cutting Dies! Debbie and I requested these cutting dies because we knew what a BIG hit they would be!

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.

This card uses the Fairy Cutting Die, which was cut twice, once from Black Cardstock and again from Silver Ripple Holographic Paper.

I did a little paper piecing here by cutting the swirls away from the Black Cardstock image and gluing it over the Silver image. The Little Things Paper Pack, Best Wishes Cutting Die and Patriotic Stars Sparkletz where just right for the fairy themed card.

The Unicorn Cutting Die was cut from Metallic Silver Paper and the Starry Cutting Die cut from Painted Lace Paper and backed with Silver Sparkles Holographic Paper. So sparkly!

I used Pastel Cardstock and the Castle Cutting Die to create this paper pieced look. I also added Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and Winter Wishes Sparkletz for the cloud base.

The Center Step Die Cut Card and Dots & Stripes Paper Pack provided just the right backdrop of the fairytale castle.

Thank you for joining me today! And remember, 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. I’ll be back later this week with the Paper Wishes Thursday Vlog!

Happy Crafting!

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!

Remember 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.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope you give both Card Builder Cutting Dies a try. I know you’ll love them!

Happy Crafting!

Amazing Card Edgers

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m bringing you Edger Cutting Dies from Creative Expression that will take your cards to the “next level.”

This delicate Dragonfly card could not have been easier to make. I’ll walk you through it.

Place the Creative Expression Dragonfly Edger Cutting Die on the right side of a blank White Card (6″ tall) and run through a die cutting machine (with at least a 6″ wide platform)

Die cut a second image (focusing on the dragonfly) from pink Pastel Cardstock. Cut the dragonfly free from the surrounding image, as shown.

Align and glue the pink cardstock dragonfly over the card edge dragonfly.

I stamped a greeting from Grateful Heart Stamp Set and glued half pearls, rhinestones and flower sequins, from Aloha Sparkletz Embellishments, among the flowers and swirls.

Sparkletz Embellishments, from Buttons Galore, are the perfect companion to card making!

I lined the card inside back with aqua blue paper from the All My Heart Paper Pack and ribbon from Dots & Stripes Ribbon Set.

Here’s another example, from the wonderful Design Team at Creative Impressions, using the Daisy Edger Cutting Die and a Mini Expressions Cutting Die. Notice that the die cut “Happy Birthday” and the card inside back are misted with Lush Pink Cosmic Shimmer for a pop of color!

Also using the Daisy Edger Cutting Die, Debbie colored the die cut flowers, vines and leaves using Le Plume Markers. Notice how the gold sequins, from Coconut Palms Sparkletz Embellishments and the gold Happy Birthday Dazzles™ Stickers (now available in multi-colors) add sparkle!

You can see more of the Edger Cutting Dies from Creative Expressions tom on Paper Wishes Weekly Webisodes. Thanks for joining me today and happy crafting!

Mini Trifold Cards

Hi everyone! Today I want to show you the adorable Mini Tryfold Stamp Sets and Cards from Art Impressions. The Stamp & Die Sets make it easy to make clever cards that reveal different layers as you open them.

The Christmas Circlet Mini Tryfold Card is one of my favorites with each scene changing as you open the panels.

This card also used 8 Circle Double Stitched Cutting Dies. I just love the cute stitched edge.

The final panel reveals the circular greeting and Santa!

The Potting Shed Mini Tryfold Stamps & Dies make cards that take you behind French doors and into a cute “She Shed.”

Doesn’t this panel look like it would be fun to color? You can use either Spectrum Noir Pens (Alcohol Based) or Le Plume Markers (Water Based).

This card also used Square Double Stitched Cutting Dies.

For cards with a more masculine feel, the Tool Shed Mini Tryfold Stamps & Dies makes fun “Man Cave” cards.

I love the details on this panel.

And finally, the “Lookin’ sharp!” greeting.

Each stamp and die set has instructions on how to create your own trifold cards or you can buy them pre-folded.

*

Buying packs of 8 Trifold Cards & Envelopes make the cards even easier!

 

For more card ideas and techniques from Art Impressions, tune into Paper Wishes Weekly Webisodes, Wednesday, December 12.

Thanks for joining me today and happy crafting!

Holly & Snow

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m bringing you Holly & Snow themed cards using Practical Publishing Cutting Dies.

I used the 6″x6″ Holly Cutting Die and Merry Christmas Cutting Die to make this sweet Gold Embossed card.

The technique to randomly emboss the black cardstock holly is so easy to do and you can watch it on the November 28 Paper Wishes Weekly Webisode, which features the cutting dies.

This snowflake card features the 6″x6″ Snowflake Cutting Die. For sparkle I placed Silver Jewel Border Dazzles™ Stickers on the die cut snowflake.

Both of the cards use Cosy Christmas 6″x6″ Paper Pad which has a cute collection of rustic Christmas themed papers.

To make a card collection as a gift, the 6″x6″ Card & Box Cutting Dies made the perfect storage box for my 6″x6″ cards (this box die requires a die cutting machine with a 9″ wide platform). I used Silver Sparkles Holographic Paper for the box and Heat Resistant Acetate for the window. I even added some Gold Embossed butterflies using the All Around Greetings Clear Stamps.

Thanks for joining me today and for more ideas and techniques, using the products from todays blog, please check out our NEW Paper Wishes Weekly Webisode, on Wednesday, November 28.

Happy crafting everyone!
