Christmas Wall Hanger by Carole

Hello everyone

Today Angel Carole is back with a brilliant idea using the
Etched Alphabet die set.

A glittery wall hanger spelling out the word Christmas.

Here you can see the addition of snowflakes and alphabet.

Carole is sharing with us her thoughts on making her projects.

When I had the idea for this project, I didn’t even consider 
how tricky it might be to photograph it. 
Maybe I should have done! 
I’m really pleased with the end result of this, 
but don’t feel the pictures do it justice.

I tried to make each snowflake individual, so had to send to 
Elliott for an emergency snowflake die order! 
I used one 12x12 sheet of glitter paper and the silver lame ribbon 
came from John Lewis.
I used foam tape in between each layer so there’s a nice 3D effect 
and added a few crystals for extra sparkle.

I attached my cards to the ribbon with the extra strong double sided tape 
and used a curtain ring with a clip at the top – also from John Lewis. 

Happy crafting! C : ) xx

Ingredients used:

Etched Alphabet
Create A Flake Three (although Create A Flake Six would also work!)
Matting Basics - Squares
Variety of cardstock
Etched Alphabet is still in the mad sale!
And please check out the other products used - just click on the names
to take you there.

Thank you Carole, you can read more about Carole and visit her blog here.

Back with more inspiration very soon.

Yvonne has created a beautiful card using one of the Spellbinders card front dies

And Yvonne has kindly provided all the instructions too!

  1. Stack both You Mean the World dies and use removable tape for exact positioning of the dies.
  2. Ink the debossed parts of the die with silver ink.

  4. Cut the text "world" from a piece of silver cardstock and glue the the die-cut text onto the card.
  5. I made the coloured background myself using distress ink and an ink blending tool, but you can also use patterned paper.

  7. Mat upon silver cardstock and a white cardbase.
  8. Add a satin bow.

Metal Effect by Sam

Hello everyone

Today Angel Sam is sharing with us a brilliant card using
Phrase Set One and Pawing Around - Cat

Phrase Set One contains very useful sentiment dies in a mixture of fonts
for lots of occasions -
Sam has cut them from gold mirror card so you can see them clearly.

And here's that impressive card -
the die cuts look just like metal!

To achieve this look Sam has die cut from black card and coloured with gilding wax,
then highlighted with cinnamon stickles.

 The Happy Birthday has been cut twice and layered to create a shadow.
The background is created with distress inks.

Both available on the website - please click on the die names.

Thank you Sam and please check out Sam's blog Craft Room Delights.

Back with more Angel inspiration soon.

The 25th by Rachel

Hello everyone

Angel Rachel is here today with another great idea using the
Holiday Greetings die and also incorporating Victorian Numbers.

Holiday Greetings is a solid card front die that can be used as
a whole stencil-like design or just using the fall out pieces works perfectly
for creating too.

there are also useful symbols and punctuation.

Rachel has matted green decorative card onto a card base,
cut Holiday Greetings from kraft card,
wrapped twine around, added Lacey Circles and Victorian Numbers.

 The Victorian Numbers coordinate beautifully.

Ingredients used:

Lacey Circles
White, red, kraft card and green patterned card
Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn and Fired Brick
