Instructions: The plaid patterned paper is the background. Cut brown cardstock to 10 x10", and the cream patterned paper to 9.5 x 9.5". Adhere these layers together. Adhere the burlap ribbon and bow across the middle of the layout. Cut a strip of the red patterned paper that is 3 x12" and adhere to the right hand side of the layout. Find and cut out the mini journal block, and cut in half, adhere a piece to the top and bottom of the red patterned paper strip using 3D foam squares. Add a gem to the middle of each.

Die cut 1 of the largest die from the Intricate Swirl Frames set from white cardstock. Cut a piece of the green patterned paper that is slightly larger than the frame and set aside for now. Stamp and die cut 2 of the Poinsettia Frames onto white cardstock using dark brown ink (Early Espresso). Cut 1 side or 4 poinsettias off of one of the frames. Now combined, the 2 frames make the perfect size for a photo mat that fits into the Intricate Swirls frame.

Add color to the frame image using ink and daubers. Green Apple to the holly leaves and Riding Hood Red to the poinsettias. I added color to the holly berries using Chameleon Pen RD4 Crimson Red. Adhere the colored frame to the white die cut frame using 3D foam squares. Adhere this to the green patterned paper using crafty foam tape. Then the entire thing can be adhered to the layout, again using crafty foam tape.

Stamp and die cut 2 of the Silent Night Scroll using dark brown ink (Early Espresso) onto cream cardstock. Fussy cut off the following pieces from one of the images: the top of the scroll, the bottom of the scroll and the holly on the side of the scroll. Add color to the holly berries using the red Chameleon Pen again, add color to the holly leaves using green ink and daubers (Green Apple). Add color to the candle using Chameleon Pens (Crimson Red, Warm Sunset). Add color to the scroll itself using Chameleon Colored Pencils, browns and mustard. Adhere the cut pieces to the full scroll using 3D foam squares. Adhere to the bottom left hand corner of the layout using 3D foam squares.

Stamp and die cut 1 of the pinecone image in dark brown ink onto white cardstock. Add color to the pinecone image using Chameleon Pens (OL3 Olive Green, BR2 Hot Cocoa). Using liquid adhesive add a little shine and dimension to bits of the pine cone. Let dry. Adhere to the left of the scroll. Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the larger poinsettias from the Poinsettia & Holly Clusters cling stamps and 3 sets of the smaller poinsettias onto white cardstock using dark brown ink. Add color to the poinsettias using red ink (Riding Hood Red) and daubers. Shape the poinsettias using the 3D Poinsettia Shaping Mold. Assemble the flowers and add glitter to the petals using liquid adhesive and Crystal Clear Glitter. Let dry. Add beads to the middles of all of the poinsettias using liquid adhesive and brown beads. Let dry. Adhere the poinsettias to the frame using adhesive dots. The larger poinsettias in the corners and middle and filling in with the smaller ones. Also add a poinsettia next to the scroll.

Mat your trimmed photo in white cardstock and adhere to the poinsettia frame using multiple layers of 3D foam squares to get it above the 3D poinsettias.

Instructions: My card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". Make card base out of white cardstock and cover with one of the card fronts. Cut a piece of 3 x 4" blue cardstock and round the corners. Run through the Vagabond with the embossing folder. I always like to spritz the cardstock with water before using the embossing folder, it seems to give a better embossing. Now, using a very light touch, use the Silver Gilding Wax and your finger and go over the embossing to give it a bit more dimension. After about 10 minutes I take a piece of paper towel and rub it across the top to buff a bit. Use dimensional tape to adhere to the center of the card front.

Stamp the poinsettia with Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink and cut out using the coordinating die. Using Lady Bug Memento ink and sponge dauber, color the petals. Using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink stamp the leaves and cut out using the coordinating die. Color the leaves with New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink and daubers. Lay the flowers and leaves onto the Poinsettia Shaping Mold and spritz with water. Run the mold through the Vagabond to shape the petals and leaves. Set aside to dry. Now is the time to add the Prills to the center of the flowers and the glitter to the edges of the flower petals and let dry.

Stamp the angel onto white cardstock using Versamark ink and emboss with the gold embossing powder. Using the brush and the distress inks, color the little angel and set aside to dry. Pick out a sentiment from the paper collection and matt it with blue and white cardstock and use dimensional tape to adhere to make a sign. Glue the little angel on one side using glue and dimensional tape to mount him.

Cut out the Medallion using the coordinating die. Using a sponge and glue apply glue to the top and bottom portion of the die, sprinkle with glitter and set aside to dry. Once dry, glue down poinsettia flowers to the center of the medallion and use dimensional tape to adhere to the card front.

Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Cut the following pieces of Grey Cardboard: Bottom 15L x 51/2"H - Front 7W x 6 1/2"H - Right side 1 1/2W x 6"H - Left side 3 1/2W x 4 1/4"H - Back 5W x 4 1/4H - Tower: 4 x 3W x 8"H - Bottom Roof 1 x 3 3/4 x3 3/4" and Upper roof 1 x 3 1/2 x 3 1/2". House Right: Front 4W - 5"H - Back 4W x 5"h - Side 2W x 5"H. Cut 1 x 12 inch strips of Black cardstock and score them in Half so 1/2inch on both sides, then fold them in half and put scor tape on 1 side on both 1/2 inch sides, these are called connection strips. Cut an opening on the front piece of the house with a craft knife!

First we start with the Tower, put them together with the connection strips, then glue the big roof part flat on top of the tower, on top of that you glue the smaller roof part, cut the styropur ball in half and glue this on top of the roof, take a piece of rope and glue this around the ball. Take the front piece where you cut the arch out and take the right side piece, and put them together with a connection strip, put a connection strip on the end of the side too and connect this with the tower 1 inch from the right side! Now take the left side and connect this with a strip on the front and then connect the back to that and connect it to the tower! For the right house take the front and cut the door opening out (use this for the door) and connect front, side, back to each other with the strips and connect them to the tower. For the roof, cut a piece of cardboard of 4 1/2 x 3" and glue this on top of the right house, cut some 1/4 inch strips and glue them on top of the roof for decoration. For the big roof you have to measure your own house it depends on the thickness of your cardboard! For the right fence, cut a piece of 4 1/2 x 1 1/2" and glue this against the house. Now take a piece of scrap and glue this on top of it.

Now take the arch you cut out of the right house and cut it in half then you have 2 doors, cut pieces of cardboard and glue them on top of the door like planks, put them in place with connection strips, cut a piece of 4 1/4 x 1 1/4" for the left fence and decorate it with 1/2 inch strips. Cut strips 1/4 inch wide and different sizes long for (stones) above the door, arch and wall spaces, glue them down all uneven, Now glue the whole house down on the bottom plate and paint the whole house 2 times with white Gesso and let it dry, when it is dry you can paint it with a mix of White, Yellow Ochre, red and brown. Paint the doors with brown paint and also the edges of the house

Make some stones with plaster and a stone mold or take some out of your garden, glue them in the corner of the house in front of the tower paint them also with gesso and the acrylic paint and decorate it with brown decorative sand. Take 2 beads and fill them with Green paper grass and put them in front of the Arch.

Take Green Cardstock and make 16 strips of 1 1/2 x 5 inches then take a piece of wire and glue this in between 2 pieces of the cardstock then cut out a leaf and cut fringes till the wire. Take the dowel and cover it with rope, glue the dowel down on the left side of the house behind the fence and now you can bend the leaves and glue them on top of the dowel, put also some green paper grass on the bottom of the tree.

Stamp the Images from the O holy night stamp with tuxedo Black on White cardstock stamp them a few times for a 3D effect. Color them with the Brush Marker in the colors you like and cut them out with the coordinating dies, cut some extra pieces and put them on each other with the foam dots. Glue a piece of acetate behind the Images and glue them in place and decorate them with the moss. Glue acetate behind the angels and glue them on top of the arch and roof and decorate them with glue and Crystal Clear. Make a hole with the crop-a-dile in one of the roof pieces and put a ball chain and a bell through it. Last but not least stick a star on top of the Ball and your piece is ready for Christmas.

For more tips on creating with the O Holy Night collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/UWDeK6soJ0E.

Instructions: Card size: Closed-7 1/4 x 5 1/4", open-7" x 5 1/4". Cut white card stock 10 7/8" x 5 1/2" and fold into thirds, cut the top with the scallop edge of the Ornate Borders, fold two outer panels into half and use a bone folder to get good crease. Cut decorative paper for each panel and then cut the tops with the plan edge die of the Ornate Borders. Glue each matching panel to the white card. Cut the bridge from tan card stock 2" x 7" then cut the top with the plain edge die of the Fleur Border Basics Die. Cut 2 tan "dirt" panels from tan card stock for the back panel but leave the top open for now to insert bottom of the town of Bethlehem after stamping and die cutting 1 with London Fog ink and 1 with black ink.

Stamp, die cut and color the Holy family, the shepherds, the angels, and the palm tree using black ink. Use a solid plain piece of rubber to create a reverse image of the shepherds then cut out only the end shepherd to put on the right side of the bridge with the palm tree. I cut the coconuts off the tree as it looked too tropical. To reverse the image I used my Misti with a plain sheet of rubber. I attached the plain rubber to the acrylic side like you would a stamp and had paper on the other side secured with magnets. I stamped the shepherds onto the plain rubber then immediately stamped the plain rubber onto the paper making the reverse image. I had to fussy cut as the die cannot be used on the reverse image.

Use gold glitter on the star and on the angel halos, fine glitter on the wings and glass shards on the stars in the sky. Glue the angels above the Holy family and the Holy family down on the center portion of the bridge. Foam tape the shepherd group to the left side and the single shepherd on the right, also foam taped, along with the glued flat to card tree. Card will fold flat going either direction for easy mailing.

Instructions: My card is 7" x 7". Cut a piece of cardstock 7 1/2" x 7" and score at 1/2". Cut another piece of cardstock 7 x 7. Glue the 7" piece of cardstock to the 1/2" flap of the 7 1/2" x 7 piece of cardstock to make a card base that measures 7 x 7. Cover the card base with a piece of the paper collection.

Using the Vagabond 2 die cut machine, cut the Intricate Swirl Die out of white cardstock. Using a sponge and some glue apply Crystal Clear to the die cut. Set aside to dry.

Stamp using VersaMark Ink the little angels and the city as well as the sentiment. Use gold embossing powder to emboss these pieces and set aside to cool. Use coordinating dies to cut out these elements. Next stamp the three shepherds with Rich Cocoa Memento ink and then color these and the angels with a brush, water and the Distress Inks. Set aside to dry. Once dry, glue down the elements using dimensional tape to add a bit of dimension. Decide where you want the sentiment and glue it down.
