 I am using products from Kaisercraft’s Christmas Miracle kit. This collection is traditional, vintage and gorgeous. That was my inspiration for my design choices but I wanted to do something a little bit different which is why I chose to make the pop and twist design.

An Aussie Christmas Card

Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am excited to share with you a Christmas card that has an Australian flair, both inside and out! I will be using products from Under the Gum Leaves by to create an Aussie Christmas Card.

Kaisercraft Products: Under the Gum Leaves Collection – PP1077 Paper Pad |Cardstock- CD601 White |CD308 Bark |CD366 Jungle | CT971 Under the Gum Leaves Collectables |CS368 Under the Gum Leaves Clear Stamps | DD552 Nested Stitched Squares Decorative Dies | Ink Pads- IP751 Chocolate | IP735 Amber |IP749 Fern |IP748 Forest |CD509 Card Pack Square Kraft |EF299 Cobblestones Embossing Folder |SB711 Red Rhinestones

OTHER: Ink Daubers | DD392 Mini Christmas Foliage |Onyx Black Ink

I used three inks and ink daubers to ink then stamp these foliage images. Having a stamping tool made this process simple, as you can ink sections of the stamp at a time.

I used a variety of collectable plus die cut pieces to add dimension to the foliage. I also like to add dimensional foam between my layers so that I have depth and also places to add my embellishments to my focal images.

Below is a video tutorial which demonstrates how to create the entire card.

Shaker Fun at Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope that you having a great week. Today I am sharing two projects which have been inspired by one paper design. I was really drawn to the cottages/houses on the COMBI CHRISTMAS reverse paper which is part of the Peppermint Collection this month. I fussy cut some out and used them to create a card plus two shaker ornaments. 

Kaisercraft Products: Peppermint Kisses Collection – P2815 Combi Christmas |P2816 Minty |P2817 Santa and Co |CD302 Coal Cardstock |GC104 Crystal Glitter Cardstock

|CT969 Peppermint Kisses Collectables| CD503 Card Pack Square Black

Other: ¾” punch |snow globe template or die.

I created a snow globe, and used the cottages as part of the scene. I kept the design fairy simple, so that if someone wanted to make these in bulk, it would be manageable.

Kaisercraft Products: Peppermint Kisses Collection – P2814 Holly Jolly |P2816 Minty |P2817 Santa and Co |P2815 Combi Christmas |P2819 Under the Tree |CD601 White Cardstock

CT969 Peppermint Kisses Collectables |CS366 Peppermint Kisses Clear Stamp |Decorative Dies: DD507 Nesting Circles, DD553 Nesting Stitches Circles |SB712 Yellow Deep Rhinestones

Other: Metallic Cord |Ribbon |Fun Foam |Acetate |Wave Die |Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

My second use of the cottages was using them to create shaker ornaments. I created my ornaments by combining Kaisercraft nested circle dies to create a large round shape in order to create a Christmas scene. I selected trees from the collectables and used white cardstock to create a snowy hillside.

I also stamped a sentiment on the back, so these could also be used a gift tag at Christmas time.

To make these shaker ornaments, watch the tutorial below.
