VIDEO TUTORIAL | Chinese New Year Card


Today, I'm sharing a Chinese New Year card with a video tutorial. I love making Chinese New Year cards every year, especially if I have the appropriate animal stamps for that zodiac year. As it turns out, this Saturday, January 25, 2020 is the start of the Rat Year and I'm a rat! My husband and son are also rats so this is a big year for us.



I used three stamp sets, including Good Tidings To You (also available at EH | SSS), All Hallow's Cuteness (also available at EH | SSS) and All Is Calm (also available at EH | SSS). The two mice are from Good Tidings To You, the mushrooms are from All Hallow's Cuteness and the sentiment is from All Is Calm.


I stamped the images on to a watercolour panel. I also created masks for them so I could sponge the background before watercoloring the images with distress inks. After all the colouring was done and the panel dried, I heat embossed the sentiment with gold tinsel embossing powder.


To finish, I embellished the card with a strip of patterned paper, a strip of gold glitter cardstock and gold star sequins. I hope you enjoyed this out-of-the-box project using Christmas and Halloween stamps to create a Chinese New Year card!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Chinese New Year Envelopes | Patricia Roebuck

Hello Everyone!!  I'm so excited to be a part of the Evelin T Designs team sharing my first project with you today using the Good Tidings to You and Coffee Art stamp sets.  To introduce myself to everyone, I have been scrapbooking since about 2007.  My main focus is on memory keeping and scrapbooking, but since 2007, I have always been creative with cards and all papercrafting.  I will be sharing some of my memory keeping here using Evelin's stamps, but for today, I have some Chinese New Year envelopes to share!


I started by stamping and heat embossing onto my envelopes (cut from Silhouette) using the leaf design from the Coffee Art stamp set.  As I created the envelopes, I kept the theme, Chinese New Year, in mind as far as bright colors and bringing in shine with the embossing.  The repetitive pattern of the embossed leaf also created both texture and pattern with that beautiful shine.  I used a soft rose gold embossing powder.  As I stamped the leaf design, I rotated it alternating that pattern all the way down each row.


For my focal point of my envelope, I used the cute little mouse from the Good Tidings stamp set!  He actually inspired these envelopes!  Keeping with the shine from the heat embossing, I embossed him in gold on red cardstock.  Then I foam adhered him to the center of another die cut piece of cardstock.


I created two envelopes in the hot pink and one in lavender, using the alternating colors for the die cuts in the center.  My daughter chose the lavender envelope.


I will fill these long envelopes with a rat bookmark I crocheted.  The year of the rat is my daughter's year and is also ten years since we became a Chinese Adoptive Family.  So wanted something fun she could keep and perfect with her Warriors books about cats!  Will also fill hers with a gift card or money and a Starbucks gift card.  Starbucks usually has gift cards to celebrate for the CNY.

Thank you so much for letting me share my first project here with you!  Don't put those holiday themed stamps away, they can be used all year long!

Birthday Brew



Hello and Happy Monday!  I might be waking up to a winter wonderland this morning!  I thought I should design a project that will keep things cozy.  I'm featuring the Coffee Art set:


I went with a pink + green color palette.  Who can resist a shaker card?


A super fun way to celebrate a special person's birthday.  I'll slip in a Starbucks gift card.


Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great week!

Winter Fun...


Happy New Year Evelin T. Designs friends... Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing two Winter Fun cards that I created using Evelin T. Designs: Fun in the Snow, Good Tidings to You and Warm Winter Wishes stamp sets


Don't you just love when you start to create a card and well you have more then one idea so you just go with it. So today I am sharing two cards just because these ice skaters are just too cute and fun to create with.

I stenciled the background and layered it with a sunburst die. The image is colored with Copic sketch markers. The image just comes to life with color... don't you think?


I used some winter themed dies to create these fun backgrounds for these adorable ice skaters. Minimal coloring and and finishing up with stamping these fun sentiments. I added some dimension to the image and the sentiment using foam adhesives. 

As you can see all the Evelin T. Designs stamps mixing very well together. So go crazy and have creating. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
Many Blessing for this New Year.

Fun in the Snow Trio


Hello and Happy Monday!  It's Amy here with a winter card trio.  I used the images from the Fun in the Snow set and teamed them up with a sentiment from Warm Winter Wishes.


My intention wasn't to design three cards but since I had all those cute images from the Fun in the Snow set, I decided to go ahead and use them all up.


They were super quick to put together since they're 4.25 x 4.25 with minimal copic coloring.  I used the same overall design for each of them.



I used a pool die cut from my stash to create their ice skating rink.  Skating by starlight, sounds fun to me!


The New Years is almost here, can you believe it?  I wish you all joy, love and happiness!

Last-Minute Gift Tags


Merry Christmas Eve to those of you who celebrate! I'm here sharing some last-minute gift tags because how many of us calculate correctly and have enough on hand? It's always better to have extras for those surprise gifts. Plus, they're fun to make and can easily be turned into a card!


I watercolored images from Good Tidings to You (also available at EH | SSS) and Fun in the Snow (also available at EH | SSS) , using Simon Hurley create ink pads and I also stamped the snowflakes with the same inks. These inks are equally fantastic for stamping and watercoloring, which I love, and you can find all of the colours listed in the supply links below.


I used a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on the animals' red winter accessories and banners. The banners are from Evelin's set called Framed for Winnie & Walter and they make awesome shaped tags. In the close-up, you can see how shimmery it makes the image. It's so pretty and festive!


To finish, I stamped the sentiments, then did a bit of masking to stamp the snowflakes. I secured the animals using glue dots, punched a 1/8" hole and threaded black cord.

For those of you who are celebrating this holiday season, I hope it's wonderful! Even if you have no plans, I hope you enjoy the break!

Guest Designer | Noga Shefer

Hi crafty friends, I am so happy to guest designing again today for the amazing  Evelin T Designs !  



I made another unique tag for this GD.


My tag  featuring the adorable Good Tidings to You . This set is just perfect addition to your stash!

To make this tag I die cut a piece of Bristol smoosh using a tag die.


The  background was created  by blending spun sugar  distress oxide ink and swirls die.
I glued an hill using white glitter cardstock.


Next I stamped and colored the adorable image using copic markers and glued it to my tag with foam tape.


Next I stamped a greeting from this set using white powder and heat embossed it on black banner and the tag is ready!


I hope you enjoy the project I created and feel inspired to create!

Have a wonderful day! Noga
