Stampin’ Up! Ever Eden Christmas Crackers

Stampin’ Up! Ever Eden Christmas Crackers

Hello crafters! Welcome to Week 20 of our AWH Heart of Christmas blog hop.

This week I’m using a stunning new product, the limited release Ever Eden Cotton Paper. This soft, delicate tissue-like paper offers a unique way to add dimension and visual interest to any paper project, can be used to wrap gifts, or it can be die cut, ripped, wrinkled or folded.

And it’s also the perfect thickness to create your own Christmas crackers!

The Ever Eden Cotton Paper comes in two colours: Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. For my Evening Evergreen Christmas Crackers I tied each end with the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon and for the Soft Succulent Christmas Crackers I used the Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon.

These crackers are super easy to make. You can use the cardboard roll from wrapping paper, loo rolls or make your own inner tube from Crumb Cake or Basic White card stock. Each cracker is wrapped with half a sheet of Ever Eden Cotton Paper, attached to the inner tube with Tear and Tape.

Don’t forget to fill your cracker with a snap, a sweet, a joke or a treat before tying the ends with the ribbon. If you forget, you can gently untie one end and insert these things later.

The label on the Soft Succulent “Tis the season” cracker is die cut with the Tailor Made Tag dies and has a second tag cut from this gorgeous Painted Christmas DSP. The sparkly Ever Evergreen In Colour Jewels decorate both crackers.

After I made all my crackers I realised I could have used the Garden Gems from the Eden’s Garden Collection!
The label on the Evening Evergreen cracker has the “Merry Christmas” sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set, die cut using one of the label dies from the Seasonal Label dies – I though the shape of this long narrow die perfectly suited the shape of the cracker.

A pinecone stamped in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso was cut in half and adhered under the long die at each end of the cracker.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rachel Woollard. I can’t wait to see what she shares with us today!

Stampin’ Up! AWH Heart of Christmas Week 15

Stampin’ Up! AWH Heart of Christmas Week 15

Hello crafters! This week I’ve made a Christmas Bauble card using the two stamp sets from the Painted Christmas Suite Collection: Christmas Season (a stamp set with images) and Christmas to Remember (a sentiment stamp set).

To create the bauble shape I used the largest of the layering circle dies as a guide to draw a pencil circle outline to stamp within.

Then I stamped the leaves and berries in a traditional Christmas colour scheme – Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green and Real Red – before using the same large layering circle die to cut out my bauble.
The Basic White card base has a layer of Real Red cardstock, topped with another layer of Basic White cardstock, embossed with the Merry Melody Embossing folder.
The “Merry Christmas” sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink onto Basic Black cardstock before heat embossing with white embossing powder.

Some Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels add sparkle to my Christmas bauble, as well as Wink of Stella applied to the berries.

To “hang” my bauble onto the card I’ve made a hanging loop and a bow of the Real Red Sheer Ribbon. I’ve cut the ribbon ties in half to add extra interest to my card.

The inside has been stamped to match the font of the card, with another lovely sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Sharon Davern. I can’t wait to see what Sharon shares with us today!
