Christmas Greetings

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am so happy to share a Christmas card with you from a stunning collection called Whimsy Wishes. It has beautiful blue tones, accompanied by soft pastel illustrations featured in the collectables and also in the papers. When I have more time and I need to make more cards for my family and friends, I am coming back to this collection to create more!

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope that you are safe and well. Today I am sharing my first Christmas card of the year which features papers and products from Kaisercraft’s Native Noel Kit. Scrapbook kits are new to Kaisercraft and this Aussie themed Christmas collection is beautiful.

I decided to create a vintage Christmas card. I used a die which was released earlier this year which coordinated beautifully with the kit. I incorporated the papers and burlap trim and festive ribbon to finish my card.

‘Tis the Season to Sparkle & Shine!

Let is Snow features the most beautiful shades of teals with a hint of silver

Happy day everyone!! It’s Deanna joining you today with two fabulous cards and I couldn’t be MORE EXCITED!! I am absolutely thrilled with this new collection from Kaisercraft–and it is dear to my heart!! I had the pleasure of working with Kaisercraft on this collaboration and it is so exciting to see it become real! Three years in the making (and begging!) and they made it look even better than it was in my dreams! I just can’t get enough of this timeless collection and know I’ll be stockpiling it for many future projects–it’s too pretty to cut!

Kaisercraft Products: PP1074 Paper Pad| CT968 Collectibles| P2805 All is Calm| GC103 Platinum Glitter| FC220 Gold & Silver foil pad| DD3343 Snowflakes Die
Other: Silver Dots|Large rhinestone

Teal is my favourite colour and I love all the different shades that are included in this line–they help to give added dimension to the papers. And of course they match perfect with all things silver–foil and glitter papers look great with these!

Layered snowflakes using the New Snowflakes die

I was super excited to see a brand NEW Snowflake die–a girl can never have too many of those in her stash! What I loved about this one is that you get TWO dies and they are the absolute perfect size for cardmaking. Plus they were designed to layer which is right up my alley–a pop dot in between makes the layers really stand out. I used the Platinum Glitter cardstock for my card mats but I did cut the snowflakes out of the new foil papers, which are a thinner weight and perfect for those intricate dies.

Here I used another snowflake from the new die set but this time I layered it with one of the elements from the Collectibles pack! There are so many fantastic pieces in there and these really dress up a snowflake.

Words are from the large 12×12 cutapart sheet–P2808 All is Calm

I used the 6.5″ Paper pad for all the patterns on my cards. The designs are a little smaller and work perfect for cardmakers. But I could not resist using the 12×12 cut apart–this is a carmakers dream!! I was in heaven with the huge assortment of festive words and quotes and the best part was the silver accents–they make everything sparkle!

Every 6.5″ paper pad features a huge array of diecuts and images in the back–ready to push out and use!

I always love little elements that add layers without bulk–these little tabs in the back of the paper pads are great for doing just that.

Kaisercraft Products: PP1074 Paper pad|CT968 Collectibles| P2805 All is Calm| RS402 Island Lagoon | FC220 Silver & Gold foil pad
Other: Stitched Rectangle die

I just can’t get enough of all the fabulous patterns that are in this line–snowflakes, diagonals and the always popular woodgrains. I used several of the collectibles on this card as accent pieces to frame my greeting in the center.

I like to use foam tape between my layers to create shadowing and depth–the same goes for adding the collectibles. These are usually cards that I hand delivery for those special people, but if I need to mail them, then I will (reluctantly) remove some of the foam tape.

I loved the Island Lagoon rhinestones–they were the perfect match of teal and really added a beautiful touch–doesn’t every card deserve some bling??

Once again I turned to the 12×12 cutapart for my greeting. This one I really trimmed down to make it fit my card. Each layer is matted with silver foil really accentuating the different patterns and colour hues. I also added a perforated greeting to the top of the card–these are in the back of your paper pad and are a great size for card greetings.

I sure hope you love Let it Snow as much as I do!! I’m so VERY grateful for all the hard work they put into this collection to bring my vision to life and I can’t wait to play and create even more over the next few weeks! It truly IS the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!
