Falling into Winter 2021 Hop+Challenge: Elegant Snowflake Ornament by Val!

Howzit Creative Friends!
 LeighSBDesigner Val is back today with more inspiration for our November "Falling into Winter Hop+Challenge" featuring a SVG Cutz set from my new Winter 2021 release,
 
 
 
"Elegant Snowflake Ornament"
A Charming Christmas 
Lace SVG Cutz
by Val
 
Val's make is a fabulous 3D hanging ornament while also a 2D version of my new Elegant Snowflake Ornament Stand 3D Lace SVG Cutz...wrap your brain around that dimensional mind twister, LOL!
 
 
  Don't worry, it's easy to understand coz instead of building a 4 sided 3D snowflake ornament stand by cutting out 4 sets of the Elegant Snowflake Ornament Stand 3D Lace SVG Cutz Val made hers by cutting out 2 sets of all the elements so the hanging snowflake ornament piece is pretty on both sides.

 

 Val cut out all the elements from Canson Mixed Media cardstock with her Silhouette Portrait 3 electronic cutting machine.  She then coloured the large snowflake and stand base with Broken China Distress Oxide ink and then embellished multiple areas with Distress Clear Rock Candy Glitter for lots of wintery sparkle!  Val completed her wonderful hanging snowflake ornament with a white and silver cord for the hanger.


The "A Charming Christmas" Collection is currently up at LeighSBDesigns Etsy Boutique on special release sale through Friday Nov 12 midnight pacific❄️

A Charming Christmas Snowflake Tag and Charms Set - Lace SVG Cutz Gift Tags by Leigh!

Howzit Creative Friends!
My inspirational makes for you today is a set of elegant gift tags featuring Digi Stamps and SVG Cutz from my new Winter 2021 release, A Charming Christmas❄️
 


A Charming Christmas
"Snowflake Tag and Charms Set"
Lace SVG Cutz Gift Tags by Leigh
 
 
 

I cut 4 of the base tag layer from the Charming Snowflake Tag - Make A Tag Layered SVG Cutz out of pale silver Crafter's Companion glitter cardstock and the overlay layers included in the set out of vellum.  Before cutting the vellum overlays I printed the wonderful Christmas and Winter senties onto the vellum and then cut everything out using my Silhouette Cameo 4.
 
 
I cut 4 of the elegant Charm lace overlays from the Christmas Tree Charms Lace SVG Cutz set out of white mixed media cardstock.
 
 
 
The mixed media cardstock is textured so I first base coloured the gold charms with a metallic gold Sharpie marker and the silver charm with metallic silver.
 

I then used my Gemini Foil Press to heat apply metallic gold and silver foils to all the charms.
 
 
Because the cardstock I used for the charms is textured the foiling has a wonderful faceted effect that changes as the light hits them.
 
 
I layered up all the tag elements and secured them together with pretty metallic ribbons.
 

 On the Robin Charm Tag I used a metallic gold ribbon and two types of silver ribbon for the rest.
 
 
I went with silver foil and silver ribbon for the Snowman Charm Tag.

 
 
The finished tags are so elegant and will look splendid on my gifts this year!
The backs of the glitter tag bases are white and the perfect spot for writing my Christmas messages.

Falling into Winter 2021 Hop+Challenge: Have a Very Yeti Christmas - Tag by Guest Designer Tee!

Howzit Creative Friends!
 

"Have a Very Yeti Christmas"
Yeti Build-a-Scene Tag
by Guest Designer Tee
 
Tee is joining us today as Guest Designer with her FROSTastic inspirational Tag for our November "Falling into Winter Hop+Challenge"❄️
 
 
 Tee made an X-large size 12 tag that measures 5 1/8" x 10 1/2" featuring the Yeti Build-A-Scene Collection for her make today!
 
The tag is made of thin cardstock so Tee covered it first with heavy watercolour paper and then created her background with texture paste, Lindy's Hydrangea Blue Starburst spray and a couple of spritz of pearl mist spray.  Once dry she rubbed Picket Fence Distress Ink on top and used it to stamp icicles and stars onto the background.  She then cut a piece of watercolour paper and added glitter to make some snow for the Winter Yeti to stand on.  Tee then printed out the Yeti and Trees from the Winter Yeti Build-a-Scene set, the Santa Hat from the A Very Yeti Christmas Add-on Pack and the festive senti and Sign Post from the Yeti Senti Sign Post Add-on Pack, fussy cut everything out and coloured them up with markers.  She then adhered all the elements to the tag with tacky glue and embellished the Tree tops and the Santa Hat with Nuvo crystal and glitter drops and the Yeti's fangs with white crystal drops to create some frosty fun dimension! 

What a fabulously festive make Tee, thanks for being our Guest Designer today!

Winter Snowmen - A Charming Christmas Lace SVG Cutz Cards by Val!

Howzit Creative Friends!
 
 
 
 LeighSBDesigner Val is back today with more inspiration for our November "Falling into Winter Hop+Challenge" featuring a SVG Cutz set from my new Winter 2021 release,

"Winter Snowmen"
A Charming Christmas 
Lace SVG Cutz Cards
by Val
 
Both of Val's gorgeous Wintery cards today were made using one of the 2 slimline card versions included in the Snowmen Slimline Make-a-Card Layered SVG Cutz!

 

This Make-a-Card Lace SVG Cutz set features a wonderful whimsical scene of 2 snowmen hanging amongst pine tree branches and includes 2 versions to make 2 slimline cards from start to finish.  Card #1 includes a wonderful lace overlay card topper with a border, a matching mat layer and a slimline folded card base with a built in perforated fold.  Val used the Card #1 version to make both a slimline and a mini slimline card.

 
Val cut her card lace overlays from Canson Mixed Media cardstock and the mat layers and folded slimline cards from Hobby Craft Pastels cardstock using her Silhouette Portrait 3 electronic cutting machine.  She then mounted the overlays onto the mat layers and on to the folded cards and embellished them with Crystal Stickles glitter for lots of pretty frosty sparkle.  Val's mini slimline is a wonderful reminder to never toss a cut job that doesn't cut perfectly.  She cleverly salvaged the upper portion of the design and adhered the elements to the mat layer!
