Hello December

and hello crafty friends,

The first Christmas card I'm showcasing here is one that uses my most reached for Christmas die... in my opinion, it's one of the best dies in the whole DV line.   I talking about the Complements - Holiday 1 die, which is actually several words dies in one... and it's currently on SALE!  

The Merry Christmas on the card below in just one of the words in this die.  This card is a good example of a card made with very few items.  One die, one image, one 6x6 sheet of pattern paper and one piece of white card stock (actually i used watercolor paper).

FIRST SNOW IN BLUE AND WHITE

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a First Snow Blue and White model of card that I made using what I consider to be the three essential elements when creating a card: Stamps, Die Cut and embossing. Take a look at my card:


During these days for a lot of us the time is too short to make all that we need to do. And Christmas cards are always in our list so with this idea you can create many cards in short time. This model is very simple and easy. Let me tell you how to make this:
  1. Cut the base of the card using Whisper White card stock. The size is 5-1/2"x8-1/2' with score in 4-1/4"
  2. Take a snowflake border stamp and stamp it on the upper part using Versafine Deep Lagoon. I used one of the borders of the stamp set Christmas Borders from Joy Clair Stamps.
  3. Create a dry embossing over your card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
  4. Sponge the lover border to create the mountain sensation. I used two different colors of distress ink Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon.
  5. Decorate the top with a few loops of blue and white baker's twine.
  6. Cut the die cut First Snow from DieVersions using Whisper White and Tempting Turquoise card stock and paste these a little moved to create dimension.
  7. Paste the die cut piece over the decorated card base.

If you want you can change the colors or die cuts. For Christmas season Die-Versions has an amazing collection and you can find all these die cuts HERE. And we'd love to see your projects using Die-Versions dies on our Facebook page HERE. If you use the code martha15 you'll receive 15% off your regular price Die-Versions order.

See you soon!

Reindeer in the Woods



Anne here with another Christmas card idea.  The one I have to share with you today features the Reindeer die from Die-Versions and a layering stamp set by Hero Arts.

I started out by stamping the trees in different colors of green to see which combination I liked the best.  I ended up using Memento Ink (Cottage Ivy, Bamboo Leaves) and Brilliance (Pearlescent Ivy).  The top layer for the trees was stamped with VersaMark and heat set with White Spark embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The background of falling snow was also stamped using one of the stamps from the Hero Arts set.

The snowy banks were hand cut (although the trees ended up covering up most of the banks) and then heat embossed with Sparkle embossing powder.  I added Nuvo Glitter Drops (White Blizzard) for more definition of the banks.




The reindeer was die cut from white cardstock.  I colored his hoofs with a Copic marker and then began adding flock to various the rest of the die cut.  His antlers are covered with Buff flock, his tail with Snow White flock, and his body with Amber Wheat flock.  He is so soft to touch.  Unfortunately the reindeer is temporarily out of stock.

Be sure to visit the DV Blog often to see what the rest of the team has created for your viewing pleasure :-).

Angels



Hello Die-Versions Fans, Lori here today with a Christmas card for you!  For this A2 Christmas card I started with Kraft card stock and then I took some patterned paper, inked the edges with gold and attached it to the base of the card. I cut out some gold shimmer paper with the Die-Versions Whispers Angel Ornament and attached that to the card.  Next I stamped the sentiment from the Joy Clair Three Wise Men stamp set with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.  I inked the edges of the Kraft card stock with gold ink too. I made a bow with some gold and white bakers twine and attached that to the top left corner of the card.
