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!

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!

Christmas Window Card

Hello! Heather Hoffman here this morning with a fun card to share with you using All is Calm and Warm Winter Wishes to create this this fun Christmas window scene! I thought it would be fun to take a portion of the scene from All is Calm and make it mimic looking into a window as a family decorates their Christmas tree - I love how it came out!


I started off by die cutting a window from white cardstock using a Simon Says Stamp die called Stitched Window Frame. I then stamped the part of the image I wanted to use on a small piece of white cardstock, then trimmed it down to fit just right behind my window.


Once I had that decided, I went ahead and colored the image in with Copic markers - love this cute little snippet of the image! 


I then mounted the window over that panel with foam adhesive, then mounted it on my kraft cardbase. Can you see the bit of a 3 dimensional look it gives?


After that it was simply a matter of stamping some sentiments underneath. I used a combination of sentiments from All is Calm and Warm Winter Wishes - the perfect finishing touch!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!

Good Tidings to You Frameless Shaker Snowman Card


Hello Friends! Kelly Griglione here to share a really fun card featuring the darling snowman from Good Tidings to You using a new-to-me technique that I recently saw Ilda Dias use ... frameless shaker cards! Although I love how shakers look, I was never really a fan of making them because I didn't like using all of that foam tape. Plus the bulk made it difficult to mail.


With this style of shaker card though, you skip the foam tape and bulk. Instead, wrap clear mylar, acetate, packaging, report covers, cellophane, basically anything you can find that's clear, around the area you want to shake. You could make the entire card a shaker if you wanted to! Obviously the thicker the material you use, the better your card will hold up.


I grabbed one of my husband's clear comic book bags and cut a piece that would fit around my panel.  Then I added the shaker elements to my panel, folded the sides of the clear mylar back behind the panel, and secured all the sides with tape.  I like that the snowflakes move around plenty when you shake it, but it also tends to hold the shaker contents in place. It's a good balance. Love how the snowflakes float around the darling snowman like it's really snowing. 


I've only used the snowman here, but the Good Tidings to You set has five other adorable illustrations. Evelin always draws the cutest critters ever! I just want to give this guy a big hug!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Christmas Fun...


Happy Hello Evelin T. Designs friends. Annette Allen here with you today and I am sharing a card I created using Warm Winter Wishes, All is Calm and Good Tidings to You stamp sets. Today I am mixing up all these fun stamps and they go so perfectly together. 


I colored these sweet images with Copic Sketch makers. The background was created using Ranger Oxide inks. But first I die cut a fun Christmas tree on masking tape. I wanted the tree to be bright in the background. 

I sprinkled a little green ink and water just on the tree and on the entire card I used Copic opaque. 


Some of the images I gave dimension and the rest I just glued directly onto my card base. Finishing up with stamping the sentiment. 

Another simple but fun card to create. yay for cute images... right?

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Evelin T. Designs crafting!

Season Greetings...


Welcome Evelin T. Designs friends... Annette Allen here with you today. I created a snow filled card for you today and I created it using Evelin T. Designs: Warm Winter Wishes, Fun In The Snow and Good Tidings to You stamp sets. 


All of these sets mix so well together. That is why you need them ALL. 


I created a Ranger Alcohol ink background. You might say that does not look like alcohol ink well it is I just used water with it to get this softer look. Takes a while to dry but so worth it. 

The images are colored with Copic Sketch markers and I fussy cut around them. If you look closely I used a star embossing folder. 


I used some of the fake snow that you can find at most craft stores. These little critters are having fun in the snow. It really does not shake like a shaker card but the snow is staying right where I want it too. Yay for Christmas/Winter cards... Right?

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!

Warm Winter Wishes


Today I'm sharing a sweet holiday card featuring the Warm Winter Wishes stamp set (also sold at EH | SSS). It was hard to pick which images I wanted to work with since they're all so cute! Since I'm a big coffee/tea lover, I decided to colour the three cuties holding mugs.


I decided on a colour theme to highlight their scarves and mittens. Then I watercoloured each image strategically so they would look great sitting in a row with their winter accessories, enjoying their beverages.


To create an interesting background and to highlight these adorable images, I used two different dies to create a border with wonky scallops and stitching. Then I used the colours I used on the accessories to sponge the edges before stamping the sentiment.


I adhered fun foam to the back of the panels and used foam tape to attach the animals. To finish, I added a little white silk bow to the bunny's ear.


Be sure to visit my blog for a full supply list. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Guest Designer: Patricia Roebuck | Fun in the Snow Cards | Video

Hi Everyone!  This is my last post as a guest here on the Evelin T Designs blog.  Thank you so much Evelin for having me and to everyone for letting share!  The holidays are coming quickly.  I thought of a background using the Fun in the Snow stamp set with watercolors that is not only fun and whimsical but quick to mass produce!  And if you have a little extra time to get creative with your holiday cards, I'll share another card using the same stamp set.  I also have a video to share how these cards came together at the end of this post.



I love the playfulness of the Fun in the Snow stamp set.  Each one of these images shows personality and movement.  Perfect for a background.  I created a background with the adorable and silly penguins and the beautiful bear gracefully skating along.  All I did was stamp several card panels with Staz On ink, then added messy watercoloring on top of them.  I created four cards using different cardstock panels under each one before adding to my card base.  You can change the look of them by using different cardstock colors.  To finish them, I added some Nuvo Drops.



For this next card, I did not use a card panel.  This is a single layered card base, except for the silver cardstock die cut frame I adhered around it.  Before adhering that though, I stamped this silly penguin  in black ink.  Then created a mask for him to create a wintery swirl to go along with the motion of him gliding along the ice.



You can see more on the video how this came together.  I placed the mask over the penguin, then used Nuvo Drops and Glitter to create swirls using a popsicle stick.  Lifted the mask after it dried a bit, and colored the penguin with pencils.



For the sentiment, I stamped the floral images from the stamp set to peek under my die cut silver frame to bring attention to my stamped sentiment at the top.  I finished this cutie with gems and sequins.



This card was not complicated to make, but definitely has a few more steps with the masking, coloring and the die cut frame, but still simple enough you could mass produce a set to give out for the holidays.  Thank you so much again Evelin for having me and to everyone for letting me share!  You can watch the video below to see how these came together or watch it in HD on my YouTube Channel here.

Warm Winter Wishes



Hello and Happy Monday!  It's Amy here with a cozy winter card.  Have you seen the sweet Warm Winter Wishes set?


I teamed those sweet critters with some super vintage Basic Grey pattern paper that became my overall color palette.  My favorites are of course, the coffee drinking buddies.


I kept a large portion of my design white so that the dark pattern wouldn't take over the card.  I love plaid so this pattern is calling my name.


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