Happy New Year Card with Dies R Us

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a New Year card. 
I think everyone would love a card to ring in the new year.

This card is a die cut inlay design. 
It's pretty easy to make and you can cut all your paper ahead to create lots of the same card just in case you have lots of friends and family you would like to send these out to!

Let's get started!!

First, I die cut the Flute glasses, champagne bottle in the ice bucket from white cardstock, holographic foil paper. I also die cut the champagne bottle in the ice bucket from red glitter cardstock.  Making sure to save all the pieces.

I trimmed white and black cardstock to A2 panels. 
I then trimmed the white panel down by a 1/8" so to create a border around the card front panel. 

Next, I adhered the flute glasses and the champagne bottle in the ice bucket to a black cardstock card front using the white cardstock I die cut the items from for placement.  I then used the red glitter die cut to place the labels on the bottle and the bow on the bucket.

Then, I added foam adhesive to the white cardstock and place it onto the card front panel.

Next, I die cut the words Happy New Year 2 times from plain black cardstock and once from Black glitter cardstock. Using some adhesive between - I stacked the words. Adhered them to the card front panel on the top left.

Next, using some dimensional silver stars I added some in two clusters for a finishing touch.
Then, adhered the front panel onto a card base.

Now, the card is finished!

Supplies Used:
Yvonne Creations - Champagne

Elizabeth Craft Designs - Happy New Year

cardstock & Paper
Recollections Brand - Black & White
DCWV - Red Glitter Cardstock

Snowflake Ornament with Rinea

Hello Crafty Friends - I am  here with a Holiday decoration. This ornament can be used to decorate your tree, presents or just decor around your home or office. It's perfect for gift giving as well.

You just need about 30 minutes and a few supplies.

Supplies Needed:
Lara's Crafts - Wooden Snowflake
Plaid-FolkArt Metallic Silver Paint
Coats Brand Metallic Silver Thread
My Minds Eye Brand Turquoise Bling
Adhesive : Aleene's Tacky Glue
Paint Brush

Step 1: Paint the edges of the wooded snowflake - set aside to dry about 1 minute. * Note: if you do not like using paint you can color you edges with a Metallic Silver Sharpie.

Step: 2 Using the Rinea 3D Rolled Star Die or Stars N More Templates to die cut 2 star maker shapes from Starstruck Turquoise. Using the handle of your paint brush curl the circle edges as indicated on the back of the package. The best art of the Rinea Foil paper is that it holds it shape - but if you prefer you can add a tiny bit of glue. Set aside.

Step 4: trace the snowflake on to the Starstruck Silver foil paper trim and adhere to the wooden snowflake. Repeat this for the other side. 

Step 5: Assembly of the snowflake - Start by cutting a part one of the rolled stars. Then, adhere the little cones onto the back of the wooden snowflake. *Note: you can use a glue gun and glue sticks for this process if you prefer unless creating this project with children. Next, cut a length of the silver thread - about 8 inches; then fold in half and tie off one end. Adhere it to the snowflake(this will be your hanger) try to center it.
Step 6: Now, place the other rolled star onto the snowflake - this is the back of the snowflake. Make sure that the points go in between the others.

Step 7: Finishing touches: Now, turn you snowflake over and add a jewel to the center. Your snowflake is complete and ready to hung on your tree, gifts, anywhere that you want to decorate.

Look at the shine!

Merry Christmas with Dies R Us

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a cute Christmas card.  Featuring Lawn Fawn stamps. I combine two set to create this card. 

Don't be afraid to combine stamp sets to create your next card.

* Please Note - that in the images below the finished card is shown next to the supplies and the pattern paper is different. I did an update on my laptop and it died. My system crashed and I lost a lot of the images I was needing for this tutorial. I didn't want to re-create the card so I just cut other paper and have images from a previous coloring. Thank you for understanding.

I started by gathering my supplies. Then stamping and coloring the images of the Otters, gifts and candy cane. I only 2 gifts. I also stamped several trees in 3 different colors of Distress Oxide inks.

I then fuzzy cut the images. Next, I tucked in the otters arms a gift and candy cane.
and set them aside.

Image may contain: drawing

Next, I die cut 2 stitched hillsides from green pattern paper and 2 waves from two shades of blue cardstock. I also trimmed light blue cardstock for the card front panel as well as a A2 card base.

Then, on the stamped trees I add some details - small flicks of the Peel Paint marker on the pine trees and colored in the trucks with Vintage Photo. 

Then, I assemble the card - on a A2 card base I adhered the light blue cardstock leaving about an1/8" border. Next, I adhered the first hillside.  Then, I tucked in the small pine trees creating clusters of 3 on the left and right. Putting only one tree and a gift in the center.

Next, I adhered the medium blue wave. Then, the otters were adhered using low profile foam tape. Next, the light blue wave was adhered using low profile foam tape. Finally, the other hillside as adhered to the wave.

Then, I die cut the word Merry and stamped the word Christmas onto a stitched rectangle piece of white cardstock.  Next, I adhered the rectangle sentiment to the top center of the panel. Then, the Merry just overlapping the rectangle.

Next, I adhered the front panel to the card base leaving about an 1/8" around.  Now your card is complete.
