More Twinking Christmas Cards ~ Meg's Garden

Hello everyone! I hope that your week has been a good one. It is hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner and if you are like me, I am always worried that I haven't made enough! My friends and family are always waiting for my handmade cards so today I hope to share some ideas that I hope you may use for your own cardmaking.

I love regular shaped cards but for Christmas, I do like shaped cards. I used the largest die from Sizzix Ornaments Round die set to create my card base and die cut it again using patterned paper from A Twinkling Christmas from Meg's Garden. I used lots of flowers and die cut foliage to embellish as well as using a chipboard flourish from Scrapinec.

To add to my twinkling theme, I die cut my sentiment using glitter paper and added some rhinestones.

My second card also uses paper from A Twinkling Christmas. Again, I used lots of flowers to embellish  as well as some straws to add to the festive feel of the card.

I used some music paper from my stash to compliment the vintage feel of the paper and used a stamp from Kaisercraft as my sentiment.

With Sympathy

Hello everyone! It's Cathy here today, sharing my latest card idea on the Kaisercraft blog. I have selected papers and products from the Romantique Collection for my card and also set myself a challenge. With each release, Kaisercraft produce embossing folders and I decided that I would incorporate embossing into my card design in some way. I also plan to share my design process, with you so that it may assist you in your own cardmaking.

As I have already created a pink card with this collection, I decided that I would make a blue one this time. I start by selecting any papers from the paper pad that I would like to work with and place them in front of me and pair up possible combinations together.
This is the embossing folder folder that coordinates with the Romantique Collection. I decided that I would fussy cut it out and use the frame like a mat.

Once I have my major elements created, I play BEFORE I glue. I was having difficulty with the white elements on the card....should I change the frame to a patterned paper frame?.....the sentiment isn't working.....I changed the frames position many times but decided that it should remain horizontal. The striped die cut frame, was actually die cut from my base mat! If you are running short on paper and you know that it is going to be covered up, try this tip to save on paper.
To add dimension to my cards, I use a combination of craft glue and mounting foam to adhere my papers and elements to my cards. This helps to showcase the pretty patterned papers and also the beautiful elements that have been selected.
Inking your papers and embellishments with an ink also makes them pop! This can be applied with a sponge dauber or an ink blending tool.

Ways To Incorporate Stamps Into Your Cards

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a wonderful day. This month, Kaisercraft are releasing two exciting paper is a vintage shabby chic collection called Romantique and the second a beach, summery themed collection named Summer Splash. In today's post, I am sharing two cards using both collections and how I have used their coordinating stamps.

Using some left over paper from the centre section of my card, I die cut an oval frame and stamped my sentiment on it. I also stamped two butterflies from the stamp set and fussy cut them out to frame the vintage oval frame. I absolutely adore this collection!

My second card transformed several times during its construction. I got carried away with my stamping and had to take away my embellishments that I created as it over cluttered my card. I used the bubbles from the stamp set and stamped them repeatedly using white ink over the ombre papers. I also selected a sentiment and heat embossed it using embossing powder.

Both collections have wonderful complimentary products to work with. Stop by the Kaisercraft blog to view other inspiration from the Design Team.
