Pink Christmas Paper Pack from Stamperia

Hello crafty friends! My friend Debbie has made the sweetest vintage Christmas cards and I just had to share them with you! She used Pink Christmas Paper Pack from our friends at Stamperia. So cute!

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

Debbie used a collage technique by clustering cut-out vintage art work, overlapping elements and using foam tape for added dimension. She also added a silver Fancy Border Dazzles™ Sticker near the top.

The pink burlap flower and ivory sheer ribbon adds texture and an old fashioned element that I just love.

On this card Debbie tore the edges on the large Christmas Tree cut-out and applied Midas Silver Pigment Ink to the edges.

She also added Island Breeze Sparkletz for extra sparkle!

Card Edgers From Hunkydory Crafts

Hello crafty friends! As you may have noticed card edger cutting dies are HUGE in card making right now. Hunkydory Crafts has 2 new edgers that you just have to see!

The Flutterbye Wings Cutting Die is beautifully paired with Buttercup Paper Pack.

I used the edger to die cut a blank white card and then covered the back of the card with yellow plaid Buttercup paper.

I cut the Flutterbye image again from pink Buttercup paper and cut out the butterflies. I bent the wings and glued one to each of the white butterflies. For sparkle I glued a Cactus Sparkletz to the center of each.

This card features Pretty Petals Cutting Dies and Lacy Coral Paper Pack. I used the same technique as before and after cutting the card edge with the cutting die I covered the back with coral paper.

I die cut coral paper with the Pretty Petals Cutting Dies and then cut the center flowers from the image. After gluing them to the white flower centers I bent the petals upward and placed a black Enamel Dot on each center.

Lily Pond, Stained Glass, Cutting Dies

Hello crafty friends! Debbie and I have made some fabulous stained glass inspired cards using Moonstone Lily Pond Dies from Hunkydory Crafts.

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

Debbie created this gorgeous card using the Dragonfly Cutting Die.

She used Black Suede Paper with the oval Dragonfly Cutting Die and glued Blue Circles Holographic paper to the back.

For added dimension she die cut a second dragonfly from black suede and backed it with holographic paper. Then she glued it over the oval with wings lifted.

To create the colorful background Debbie sprinkled Lime Burst and Teal Ocean Cosmic Shimmer over white cardstock and misted it with water.

For this next card I cut the Lilies Cutting Die from black cardstock and glued acetate to the back.

Tip: Sticky Specks are genius! Each sheet has thousands of sticky specks on them and when you place your die cut image onto a sheet and press, adhesive in placed on your fine detail areas that are difficult to glue in place.

Then I colored the back of the acetate with Spectrum Noir Pens which are alcohol based and adhere to plastic.

I used the same technique on this card, but used the Swan Cutting Die with Silver Linen Specialty Paper and Lacy Coral Paper Pack.
