A slimline Christmas card, using coordinating dies instead of the stamp set

Hi Everyone,

How are you getting on with your Christmas cards? 

I am really proud of myself this year - the plan to make at least one or two Christmas cards every month has totally paid off! I will finally have enough cards for my closest friends and family, woohoo! I plan to step it up with 3 cards a month next year, that way I might even have some cards to spare! ;o)

I am on the Trinity Stamps blog again today, sharing a fun idea on using the coordinating dies for my focal image, instead of the actual stamp set. Have you ever tried it? It won't work with every stamp&die set, but when it does, it makes the investment in the coordinating dies so much sweeter!




Pop over and say hello if you have a moment!

Stay safe and crafty,


Mirella

A whimsical Christmas card - Mr Rabbit is Hot Stuff! Or is it his coffee?

Hi Everyone,

I am sharing a fun and whimsical Christmas card on the Trinity Stamps blog today. 

Trinity are one of the amazing sponsors of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers 2020 Fall/Winter Blog Hop, and so I wanted to make a coffee themed card to share with you all. 

I used this opportunity to make another Christmas card for my 2020 stash, and I also got to play with the adorable Dir-Tea Bunny again! Want to know why this card makes me giggle? Pop over to the Trinity Blog, and find out!


Stay safe and crafty,

Mirella

Classy and elegant Christmas cards - a timeless design

 Hi Everyone,

It's my turn to share some of my makes over at the Trinity Stamps blog again, and today I have two beautiful and classy looking cards made with the newest "We wish you a Merry Christmas" die set. It's a stunning and timeless design that you can just keep using over and over, with various patterns and techniques, and - with a bit of clever cutting - you could even use it for more "standard-shaped" sentiments (I just gave myself an idea for my next card!). 

Here's a little sneak, and - as always - you can find more info on the process + more photos over at the Trinity Blog



Stay safe and crafty,

Mirella
