Warm Wishes Shaker Card

Hello everyone! :o)

My third and last post today... If you missed previous two, just scroll down or follow direct links here and here.


I love CAS (clean and simple) and interactive cards. I combined both and made this Warm Wishes Shaker Card. :o)


First I cut all parts I needed to create the card: 
  • Kraft paper card base
  • white panel with circle window
  • white panel (for the inside)
  • Kraft paper circle
  • heat resisant acetate sheet
  • foam sheet

I heat embossed a city outline from Mama Elephant 'Reindeer Games' stamp set on the Kraft paper circle and colored it in white with Acrylic paint. I mixed the white acrylic paint with a water and splattered the circle with a paint brush. I left the acrylic paint dry on air. 



After drying, I glued the circle on the card base.

I heat embossed a sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Winter Wishes' stamp set on the heat resistant acetate sheet and glued it on the panel over the window.

I glued foam sheet on the back of the panel, filled the window with white sequins and glued the panel on the card base. Lastly, I glued the white cardstock panel inside the card to make card more stable and my card was finished. :o)

Here is a short video...

Christmas Tree on Kraft Card

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you three winter themed cards I made before I went on holidays. All cards are made combining white and Kraft papers, colors, embellishments etc.. I'll be sharing cards in separate posts. :o)


First up today is this Christmas Tree on Kraft Card. :o)



This card is a CASE of my Christmas Tree Card. I went with a same layout and color scheme, I used a same tree stencil, both cards have "snowflakes" in the background, but I used different papers, mediums and techniques to create new card. I won't compare differences in this post, I'll just write how I made this card. If you want to see how I made the CASEd card, jump here. :o)

The tree is heat embossed.

I used GORGEOUS 'Christmas Trees' ARTploarations Stencil. Love this stencil so much!! :o) If you like, you can see all cards I made using this stencil here, here and here. :o)

I cut out a paper panel from a Kraft paper slightly smaller than a card base, spread powder over the panel, fixed stencil on the panel and taped with Tsukineko VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad through the stencil. I removed stencil gently, sprinkled Embossing Powder on the watermarked tree and heat it. When I was done with heat embossing, I cleaned the powder with dry microfiber cloth.

At this stage I could finish the card, but it looked empty. I mixed white acrylic paint with a water and splattered the panel using paint brush. I left splatters dry on air. When drying acrylic paint splatters on air they look prettier than drying with heat tool. I mentioned this last year in my post here.

After drying, I glued foam sheet on the back of the panel, glued it on the card base and my card was finished. Not bad for first time heat embossing stenciled image. :o)

Card dimensions: 107 mm x 139 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")

List of supplies:
  • 'Christmas Trees' ARTploarations Stencil
  • Crafter's Companion Neenah Desert Storm Kraft Coloring Card

    Ombré Blue Christmas Tree Cards

    Hello everyone! :o)

    My second post today... If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.


    Inspired with several cards I made, which you can find here, here and here, I made these two CAS (clean and simple)Ombré Blue Christmas Tree Cards. :o)



    I used a 'Christmas Trees' ARTploarations Stencil. I colored structure paste with tempera color and spread it through the stencil on a white cardstock paper panel. I tried to get Ombré Effect. I cleaned the stencil with water and microfiber cloth and did the same on another panel, but on the reverse side of the stencil. I love this! One stencil two "different" trees. :o)

    I left panels drying on air 24 hours. After drying, I punched opposite corners of panels with a paper puncher and did same with top folded card bases, glued foam sheets on panels, glued them on card bases and my cards were finished. Super easy! :o)

    Dimensions of cards: 101 mm x 133 mm (4" x 5 1/4")

    List of supplies:
    • 'Christmas Trees' ARTploarations Stencil
    • white cardstock paper
    • Marabu Light Structure Paste (805)
    • Aero Tempera Color (700 Ultramarine Deep)
    • foam sheet 1 mm thick
    • Sigma Rotary Paper Trimmer
    • Fiskars High Precision Personal Paper Trimmer
    • rounded corner paper puncher
    • bone folder
    • palette knife (spatula) no. #1
    • microfiber cloth (for cleaning)
    • water (for cleaning)
