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.

This first 5″ square card uses 3 different sets of gorgeous flowers: Darjeeling Hydrangeas-Blue, Mixed Textured Blossoms-Amber and Garden Rosettes-Red. I love how the flowers mirror the colors on the paper!

I also used Circle and Happy Anniversary Cutting Dies along with Winter Wishes Sparkletz and Floral Musings Ribbon Set.

Spellbinder Flowers

Hi friends! Today I have some fun projects using Spellbinder Flower Cutting Dies. I’m a big fan of flower cutting dies because they are a tool that I use often.

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.

Debbie made this beautiful card using Sunshine & Smiles Artful Card Kit and Belated Birthday Wishes Cutting Die. Debbie also used the 8 Fancy Flourish Cutting Dies by Anna Griffin to make the pretty swirls extending from under the flowers.

She used both the Laced Flowers Cutting Die and Shapeabilites Succulent and Mum Cutting Dies and cut her blossoms from Pastel Cardstock. Then she used Purple, Yellow/Green and Pink Ink Pads to color the edges and blossom centers.

Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Acrylic Glue is perfect for layering the die cut pieces and gluing the Rainbow Sparkletz to the flower centers and around the card.

This next project is actually a 5 1/2″ square frame made with Special Day Frame Cutting Dies, pink and ivory 12×12 Spectrum Bright Cardstock Papers and white cardstock.

I used a Medium Stylus Tool to curve the different sizes of petals.

I also wrapped the petal edges around the Stylus Tool to slightly curve them.

After coloring the petal edges, with Golden Glow Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish, I used Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Acrylic Glue to layer and glue the flowers. Barefoot Beach Sparkletz were the perfect touch for the flower centers.

Finally, I cut a frame stand from white cardstock and glued it to the back of the frame.

Fun Sizzix 3-D Cards

Happy Valentine’s Day friends! Today I have some darling 3-D cards that are perfect for celebrating friends and family.

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 pretty spring Flower Basket is a sweet gift to bring a friend for any occasion. And it will last forever!

I used the Flower Basket Thinlits Cutting Die with Mocha Holographic Ripple Paper to make the basket. Using Extra Sticky Tape made it easy to assemble the pieces.

I die-cut leaves and flower blossoms from both The Sweet Life Paper Pack and Pastel Cardstock. I also inked the edges of each piece with Green and Pink ink and then layered flowers with foam tape. Rainbow Sparkletz were just the thing to add to the flower centers!

Debbie made a Sweet Shop birthday card using the Birthday Shadow Box Thinlits Cutting Dies, Pastel Cardstock, Happy Birthday and Pink Jewel Border Dazzles™ Stickers. I love how she embellished the decorations with Mermaid Sparletz too!

Every Sweet Shop needs ice cream! Debbie made a delicious looking Ice Cream Cone card! She used the Ice Cream Fold-Its Framelits Cutting Die and Pastel Cardstock for the cone.

She custom colored her scoop of ice cream, cheery and sprinkles by using Golden Flamingo Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish, Raspberry Sorbet, Lemon Sherbet and Tantalizing Teal Cosmic Shimmer Lustre Polish.

She even made the yummy chocolate top with Brown Crocodile Paper and finished the card with sparkly teal Happy Birthday Dazzles™ Stickers.

Valentine Dazzles™ Just For You!

Hello crafty friends! I’m back with more Valentine inspiration for you.

Debbie used Red Cardstock and covered it with Vellum Dots Paper, which created a soft, layered look.

Then she placed large red hearts (from NEW 48 Fancy Hearts Dazzles™ Stickers) onto White Cardstock embossed with Diamond Dot Embossing Folder.

She added Dazzles™ Sticker borders (using NEW 96 Fancy Border Dazzles™ Stickers) and greetings along with Ruby Slippers Sugar Shoppe Buttons.

For this next card I used Dots & Stripes Paper Pack and Ribbon Set along with 96 Fancy Border Dazzles™ Stickers and 629 Heart Dazzles™ Stickers Pack.

I backed the heart Dazzles™ Sticker with Red Ripple Holographic Paper for added sparkle!

And finally, Debbie created this darling card using All My Heart Paper Pack, Rounded Rectangle Double Stitched Cutting Dies, 96 Fancy Border Dazzles™ Stickers and 629 Heart Dazzles™ Stickers Packs.

Thanks for joining me today. Be sure to leave time to make something pretty to share. Happy crafting!
