Creations Scrapbook Centrale Creative Team Project 2023-Dec-08

 Hello, hello!

Today I share a set of Christmas cards created using Spellbinders' 12 Days of Stitchmas Kit.  I went with a clean and layered look, most of the cards I used the goodie from one day, except for one.

The wavy sentiment strips were done with Spellbinders Make It Merry Sentiment Die Set.  The straight sentiment strips done using Mama Elemphant Easy Christmas Greetings & matching die.

For the background, I used various embossing folder and dies, and/or pattern paper.  

These were very fun to make, and I am sure this Stitching Die Set will be used over and over!

Do you know that out of this set of dies, there are a few that could be made into an interactive card.  For example, the Day 7, the Bell; you could make the clapper moves from side to side.


Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!

Sakura Art Journal on Die Cut Divas


I am sharing an art journal page featuring Altenew Stunning Sakura bundle (stamp, stencil, and die).  

When it was first released in March 2023, I knew right away that's a set I want for my travelling album.  I bought it and it's been waiting for me to use.  Long story short, travelling album on the back burner, but I made a simple art journal page with it.

The substrate was dry embossed and ink blended with Crushed Olive and Tumbled Glass in an ombre fashion.  Then I adhere the cherry blossoms and frame.  

The cherry blossoms were stamped in black, inked with matching stencils, and die cut.  Inside the New Day Heart Frame die, I adhere a little panel (framed with black) stamped with an older Altenew set: Under The Cherry Blossom Tree.

I hope you enjoy my page, and that I've inspired you to come and join in our December challenge on Die Cut Divas Challenge blog.  Theme this month: Flowers.  Pull out your favorite floral stamps and have some fun.  Remember to use your die cut machine during the process in order to qualify for the draw.

More details could be found on Die Cut Divas.

Red and Gold Floral on Die Cut Divas

 Happy December everyone!

Today I am sharing a Christmas card created using a non-traditional Christmas stamp on Die Cut Divas Challenge blog.  

I used Altenew Build-a-Garden Japanese Anemone to create my project.  I first stamp the flowers on white card stock, ink blended, and then die cut.  Since the background panel I am using is black with gold splatter and gold embossing (paste), I colored the die cut's edges with a black marker.  I added a gold heat embossed sentiment, matted with black card stock, and embellished with Altenew Antique Gold sequins.

This beautiful Altenew Build-a-Garden Japanese Anemone set was generously donated by Altenew, thank you Altnew!!  

Altenew is the sponsor of this month's Die Cut Divas Challenge.  And the theme is: Flowers.  So bring out your favorite flower stamps and dies and play along.  

And since I got this set out I may as well make another card.

This version is more Spring-like, I use a light pink palette for it.  I also stamped the flowers twice, and trimmed off part from both, and arranged them as shown on card to fill the slimline card.


Supplies (for 1st card):

Ranger Distress Ink (Barn Door, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey)
Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Gold Ink

Supplies (for 2nd card):
Altenew Dot Botanicals Clear Stamp Set
Ranger Distress Ink (Spun Sugar, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, Crushed Olive)
Altenew Crisp Dye Ink (Purple Wine, Puffy Heart)
Hero Arts Dye Ink (Field Greens)
Nuvo Glitter Drops (Gold Coast)

Thanks for coming over to my blog.  Have a fabulous day!

Creations Scrapbook Centrale Creative Team project (2023-Nov-28)


It's my turn to share my team project on the Creations Scrapbook Centrale FB group page.  November's challenge theme is Travel/Culture. 

And my project today was inspired by the traditional Chinese Flower Gods.  You could read about it here, and here.

Now let's take a look of my card.

It features the Floral Cascade Washi Tape Sticker Set by The Washi Tape Shop.

I stamped the bamboo in the background using grey shadow ink. I glued a piece of cellophane behind the top panel with the die cut window then attached to card base with foam adhesive.  The lady (sticker) is adhere on the cellophane.  I added some more floral stickers onto the card front, and added a tag with Chinese greetings written by me.  The words means "peaceful wishes is sent via a letter".

Here's a photo of the supplies I used for my project:

Thanks for visiting, I wish you a beautiful day!
