Yeti Snowfall Christmas Card

Hey, crafty friends!

I know it's only November, but I'm just so excited for Christmas! I've made a card featuring a sneak peek of our brand new Yeti Set Go stamps and dies, plus one of our new stencils!

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.


I began the card by doing some ink blending straight onto a Neenah Solar White cardbase, and used Shaded Lilac and Tumbled glass to create a quiet wintery scene. I then used our new Snowfall stencil and some white Wendy Vecchi embossing paste to create a bit of snow in the background.



Next, I cut out a snowy hill using a slider die, and adhered it to the bottom of the card, then stamped, coloured and die cut a yeti, present and Santa hat from our Yeti Set Go sets, and stuck them down onto the card with adhesive foams.



To finish, I heat embossed a little sentiment in silver, attached a super small, pink heart and finally, rounded the edges of the card.

Spread the Love Mini Shaker Card

Hey, crafty friends!

I have a mini pastel shaker card, to share with you, and I'm using the brand new Spread the Love stamps and dies from our newest release.

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.



First, I used a 8x10 cm/3x4" rounded rectangle die to cut a watercolour panel, and I blended in some Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar Distress Ink, leaving the bottom white, to create an ombrè effect. Next, I mixed together some water and a very small amount of white pearlescent paint on an acrylic block, then used a paintbrush and the edge of the block to flick it onto the panel. I then stamped the bread, jam jar and knife images using a Mini MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, onto X-Press It Blending Card.

I did some super simple colouring using pastel Shinhan markers, and then moved onto 

solid stamping the jam with a clear embossing pad and yellow ink. When everything was coloured, I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out, and placed adhesive foam on the back of them. I also die cut a little heart above the images using the Yeti Set Go dies.



Then, I assembled the shaker card together by using some acetate, foam adhesive and tape, and some pretty pink and clear sequins. 

Finally, I heat embossed a sentiment and adhered some clear sequins to the card.

Here are the supplies used to create this card:

• Hello Sweetums stamp set, Spread the Love
• Hello Sweetums die set, Spread the Love
• Hello Sweetums die set, Yeti Set Go
• Craft mat

• Washi tape
• Neenah Solar White cardstock, 80 lbs
