Helz Cuppleditch - Christmas Village Singers


Hi everyoneSmiley from Millan.Net

Today I am sharing my last Christmas card from 2018.

This card uses the most recently released Helz Cuppleditch Christmas collection called 'Christmas Village' sold under the brand name 'Trimcraft' which includes diecut decoupage images, paper pads in various sizes, toppers, buttons, twine, bells, wooden shapes, felt toppers, pearls, stickers etc. etc. - everything you need for your crafting projects.  I am just using the diecut decoupage and papers.  Please note that I have no connection to the artist or Trimcraft other than just being a big fan of Helz Cuppleditch's artwork.

I am also popping my card into the following Challenges (click on the underlined links to take you to the Challenges):

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge 418 which is 'Anything Goes' as long as it's Christmas.  Optional theme is any Christmas or New Year card.

Splitcoaststampers - Free for All Friday F4A460 - Holiday Card Show Off 2018 which is to show off your Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter or Holiday cards.


The decoupage images came already diecut so it was easy to just pop out the pieces and put them together using dimensionals.

The designer papers are also from the same Helz Cuppleditch collection.  I trimmed the base dotty paper on the card base to 1/18" using my Perfect Layers Tools.

I added the teal organza ribbon in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made using my Bow Easy.  I attached the bow using Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive. 

Here is a 2nd version that I did with a light teal satin ribbon and different snowflake dies:


I had a bunch of snowflakes that I diecut from silver glitter cardstock a while ago ready to use on my Christmas cards (sorry, I don't know which dies I used) and glued them on using Tombow Mono Aqua glue then added Kaisercraft silver rhinestones to the centres.

The sentiment is also from the same Helz Cuppleditch collection which I popped up on dimensionals.  Lastly, I glued my card front to a cream cardstock base using Tombow Mono Multi glue.

The image came already glittered but unfortunately you can't see it in the photo - however, it does look very pretty in real life.   It was super-windy and hot so I had to take the photo on my decking table in the shade out-of-the-wind where the light wasn't so great and I couldn't retake the photo the next day because it was Christmas Day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Helz Cuppleditch Christmas Village decoupage card!


Hi everyoneSmiley from Millan.Net

Yes, it's another decoupage (aka paper tole) Christmas card.  Thought I had better share all my Christmas cards before the end of December and the Christmas tree and decorations get packed away.  It's my 3rd post in this past week - the most I have done in the past year!  Currently, we are having a heatwave where we live and it was 41°Celsius (105.8° Fahrenheit) yesterday and very hot again today so it is definitely indoor weather with the airconditioning on full blastSmiley from Millan.Net  

This card uses the most recently released Helz Cuppleditch Christmas collection called 'Christmas Village'

I am also popping my card into the following Challenges (click on the underlined links to take you to the Challenges):

The decoupage images came already diecut so it was easy to just pop out the pieces and put them together using dimensionals.

The designer papers are also from the same Helz Cuppleditch collection - other than the red layer which is by TPC Studio - Christmas Cheer Ribbon Candy Stripe which I bought on clearance from Riot Art and Craft.  I added the main image panel onto the red paper and trimmed it to 1/16" using my Perfect Layers Tools then rounded the corners using my Corner Chomper to match the main panel.  

I added a punched border from cream cardstock to the bottom panel using an EK Success Scalloped Scallop punch and trimmed the top part of the panel to 1/8".  I added the teal organza ribbon in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made using my Bow Easy.  I attached the bow using Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive.  I trimmed the red paper and cream cardstock on the base panel to 1/16" and 1/8" respectively using my Perfect Layers Tools.

I had a bunch of snowflakes that I diecut from silver glitter cardstock a while ago ready to use on my Christmas cards (sorry, I don't know which dies I used) and glued them on using Tombow Mono Aqua glue then added Kaisercraft silver rhinestones to the centres.

Another Helz Cuppleditch decoupaged Christmas card!


Hi everyoneSmiley from Millan.Net

Today I am sharing another Christmas card that I made for my niece.  If you missed my last post, I made quite a few Christmas cards using one of my favourite designers, Helz Cuppleditch, Christmas decoupage collections.

This card uses an older collection called "The Night Before Christmas".  The decoupage (also known as paper tole) pad I bought on EBay from the UK during 2018.   Isn't the image just so ADORABLE!  I really love snowmen - which is probably odd because it never snows where I live and it is Summer at Christmas-time.



I am also popping this card into the following Challenges (click on the underlined words/links which will take you directly to the Challenge:

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge 417 which is 'Anything Goes' (as long as it's Christmas) and the optional theme is to use the word 'Christmas'.

Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog - End of Year Anything Goes


Splitcoaststampers - Free for All Friday F4A460 - Holiday Card Show Off 2018 which is to show off your Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter or Holiday cards.


The decoupage images came already diecut so it was easy to just pop out the pieces and put them together using dimensionals.

All the designer papers are by My Mind's Eye - 12 Days of Christmas - which is one of my favourite collections from years gone by.  I added the main image onto some of the MME paper and trimmed it to 1/8" using my Perfect Layers Tools then rounded the edges with my Corner Chomper to match the image.  I added a punched border to the bottom panel using an EK Success Scalloped Scallop punch and trimmed the top part of the panel to 1/8".  I added the ribbon in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made using my Bow Easy.  I attached the bow using Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive.  I trimmed the papers on the base panel to 1/16" and 1/8" respectively.

I had a bunch of snowflakes that I diecut from silver glitter cardstock a while ago ready to use on my Christmas cards (sorry, I don't know which dies I used) and glued them on using Tombow Mono Aqua glue then added Kaisercraft silver rhinestones to the centres.

The sentiment is an old one from Elzybells (now out of business) and was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I diecut it using my Big Shot and a My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Stax die. The die only has a fishtail only on one end so I simply popped it back in my Big Shot to cut the other end.  I layered it onto some of the MME paper and trimmed it with my scalpel then added tiny green Molossi rhinestones to each end of the sentiment.

Lastly, I glued my card front onto a cream cardstock base using Tombow Mono Multi glue.

The image came already glittered but unfortunately you can't see it in the photo - however, it does look very pretty in real life.  It was super-windy and hot so I had to take the photo on my decking table in the shade out-of-the-wind where the light wasn't so great and I couldn't retake the photo the next day because I had already given it to my niece.

Christmas card with Helz Cuppleditch Christmas decoupage


Hi everyoneSmiley from Millan.Net

It is Boxing Day (December 26th) here in Australia and there are the usual manic sales with people swarming the shops in search of a bargain.  You won't find me there - I would rather stay home and sleep-in, play with my Christmas presents and just have a quiet and relaxing day recharging my batteries.  Never really understood the appeal of getting up early on Boxing Day and fighting for a car parking spot and then getting pushed and shoved by shoppers all worked up in a frenzySmiley from Millan.Net  and queuing up at the cash registers.  That gets a big NOPE from me!   Shops have sales during the year anyway so it's not like you can't ever get anything on sale......anyhoo.......

Today I am sharing a Christmas card that I made for my daughter.  I have made a few cards that I will share over coming days but couldn't share them before Christmas or it would spoil the surprise.

I have been a really big fan of Helz Cuppleditch's Christmas images for many years now and follow her on Facebook.  Helz really knows how to create such adorable Christmas and non-Christmas scenes and characters and I look forward to her collections every year.  I also love to do 3D decoupage (or papertole as some call it in Australia) and find it very relaxing.

The Helz Cuppleditch collection I am using for this card is 'The Night Before Christmas' and is a few years old.  The designer paper came free with a UK magazine and the decoupage images, I bought from EBay in the UK during 2018.

I am also popping this card into the following Challenges (click on the underlined words/links which will take you directly to the Challenge):

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge 417 which is 'Anything Goes' (as long as it's Christmas) and the optional theme is to use the word 'Christmas'.

Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog - End of Year Anything Goes

Splitcoaststampers - Free for All Friday F4A460 - Holiday Card Show Off 2018 which is to show off your Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter or Holiday cards.


I went to photograph the card using my camera but the batteries died after one photo and there was NO WAY I was going up to the shops on Christmas Eve for batteries - so I went back inside the house and grabbed my mobile phone and a strong breeze suddenly sprung up and I couldn't photograph it where I usually do on top of my decking post or it would have blown my card away.  So I had to settle for the table on my decking which doesn't have direct sunlight which means my photo is a little dull.  Oh well!

The decoupage images came already diecut so it was easy to just pop out the pieces and put them together using dimensionals.

The snowflake paper is from the matching Trimcraft paper pack and the red layer is by TPC Studio Christmas Cheer Ribbon Candy Stripe which I bought from Riot Art and Craft on clearance.  I trimmed the red layer to 1/16" using my Perfect Layers Tools.  I layered it onto some buttercream cardstock and trimmed it to 1/8".

I had a bunch of snowflakes that I diecut from silver glitter cardstock a while ago ready to use on my Christmas cards (sorry, I don't know which dies I used) and glued them on using Tombow Mono Aqua glue then added Kaisercraft silver rhinestones to the centres.

I added some light blue organza ribbon in two separate elements and the bow itself was made using my Bow Easy.  The bow was glued using Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive.  I am really loving this glue lately as it is similar to Fabric glue but it dries much faster.  I couldn't figure out where to add a sentiment so decided to leave it off.  Lastly, I glued my card front onto a cream cardstock base using Tombow Mono Multi glue.

The image came already glittered but unfortunately you can't see it in the photo - however, it does look very pretty in real life.

Finished card size is 5-1/2" x 5-1/2".

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween - a new card from me


Hi everyone,

Apologies for my long absence.  Blogging has taken a backseat this year unfortunately and now, suddenly, it is November and the Christmas decorations are in the stores!  They say that time speeds up as you get older but I didn't think it would speed up this much!  I also wonder whether people still visit blogs anymore or whether they just use different social platforms like Facebook or Instagram(?).  Aside from my Gallery on Splitcoaststampers, I am part of a few Facebook Cardmaking Groups but also share the occasional card on Instagram which are quick and easy ways of doing it without doing a blog post - plus it is fun to see what others are creating with stamp sets that I have.  And we only have so much time to look at various sharing platforms.

Anyhoo, I made this Halloween card for my daughter and it was super-easy to make:  I made it in less than an hour which is probably a record for me!

This is also my card for the following Challenges.  Click on the underlined links for more details about the Challenges:

Diecuttin' Divas Weekly Challenge - Challenge 393 - Anything Goes
Always Fun Challenge 82 - Halloween


The sky was made using Ranger Distress Inks in various colours.  I wet my Ranger watercolour cardstock with water then smooshed my Distress inks onto an acrylic block and used a #8 flat paintbrush to paint strokes of each colour.  I dried it with a heat tool then repeated the process to intensify the colour and I love how vibrant it turned out.  The haunted house, tree, gravestones, pumpkin and bats are all one die by Impression Obsession - Halloween Hill and I diecut it out of black cardstock using my Big Shot - but I did cut off the far RHS of the diecut (which was a cat and 2 more gravestones) as I wanted to make a smaller card.  I diecut the ghosts from white cardstock using the Memory Box Ghastly Ghosts 98701 dies and added Wink of Stella clear glitter to them to make them sparkle - alas not captured by the camera.  I also added Wink of Stella to the windows in the house and the pumpkin face.

The greeting is by Hero Arts - Happy Halloween CL353 and was stamped using Versamark Watermark ink and heat embossed using Stampin' Up white embossing powder.  I used a powder tool first so I wouldn't have any stray embossing powder that would really show up on the black cardstock. I attached the main panel onto some more black cardstock and trimmed the edges to 1/4" using my Perfect Layers Tools, then mounted that onto a white card base with edges trimmed to 1/16".  Lastly, I used an old stiff bristled paintbrush and white acrylic paint to dry-brush highlights on the black elements on the card.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Lili of the Valley A Snowy Hug Christmas card!


Hi everyoneSmiley from Millan.Net

Just sharing another make from this Christmas season which I gave to my husband:


My husband doesn't mind cute and cuddly critters so it makes it a whole lot easier to make cards for him.

This is also my entry for the following Challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Anything Goes Christmas

Splitcoaststampers - Free for all Friday - F4A407 - Merry December - Happy ??? - Make a card to celebrate your favourite holiday in December.  It could be Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day...you decide but make sure you tell them what you are celebrating.  Just for fun (optional, in no way mandatory), add sparkle to your card.  I am (obviously) celebrating Christmas and I have loads of sparkle on my card - even on the plaid designer paper.

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - Anything Goes

Christmas Cards All Year 'Round - December - Anything Goes as long as it is holiday-related

The image is a Lili of the Valley Simply Print image called "A Snowy Hug" which you can find at this link HERE.   I bought a bunch of their Simply Print images a little while ago and they print beautifully with no pixelation even on the largest size - plus I love that the images come in several sizes to suit your needs. Note that I have no connection to the company - just happy to tell you my experience of how well the images print.   I printed the penguins onto smooth white cardstock with my Canon Pixma MG2965 wireless printer.  This is my first wireless printer and boy, it is so nice to not have to fiddle with cords + I can print from my mobile phone just by using the Canon App.  Printers sure have come a long way in recent years and mine is so much faster than my old one.  Anyway, I am digressing.....back to my card......

I diecut the image using my Big Shot and Lifestyle Nesting Square dies.  All the designer papers are by My Mind's Eye - Comfort and Joy from 2016.  I really love how the dotted paper matches the image so well and echoes the snow on the main panel.

The black dotted paper on the side panel was punched using a Fiskars Threading Water border punch which I love to use for masculine cards.  I tied on the ribbon, add Fray Stop to the cut ends then popped the panel up on dimensionals.  I used a Kaisercraft Mini Snowflakes die set to diecut the white star from white glitter cardstock then glued the star onto the knot using Fabric Glue.  Note that this die set comes with a bunch of different sized and shaped snowflakes plus stars.  This has been my go-to set for snowflakes and stars this Christmas season and I can't recommend it enough!

Here is a close-up of that sweet image where hopefully you see the fluffiness and sparkle:


The sentiment is by Penny Black from their Holiday Snippets set which has tons of small sentiments that are perfect for adding to a card when you don't have much room for one.  I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black and diecut it using a Lawn Fawn Slide-on-over die which was the perfect size.  I added a Couture Creations burgundy gemstone either side of the sentiment then glued it down using Tombow Mono Multi glue.

All the layers were trimmed to a 1/8" using my Perfect Layers Tools.

I glued the card front down to a white card base using Tombow Mono Multi glue which gave me a little bit of wriggle-time to get perfect placement with just a small white border showing.

Lastly, I added some Stampendous Cotton White Fun Flock mixed with a little bit of white glitter to the penguin's hats and the snow on the ground using Tombow Mono Aqua glue.  I usually squirt a bit of the glue onto a scrap piece of cardstock then use an old small round paintbrush to spread it exactly where I want it.

I thought about adding some diecut snowflakes around the image but decided to leave things as they were so the card didn't look too fussy for a guy.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lili of the Valley James Bear in the Snow Christmas Card


Hi everyoneSmiley from Millan.Net

Just stopping in to share a Christmas card that I made for my daughter which I started on the 23rd and finished Christmas Eve morning:


This is also my card for the following Challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Anything Goes Christmas

Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - December - Always Anything Goes and you may enter any creation on which patterned paper/card has been used.  The idea of the challenge is to use up any of those papers we have been "collecting".  My designer papers are from 2011 so I think that I am....ahem... 'well-qualified' for the challenge!

Splitcoaststampers - Free for all Friday - F4A407 - Merry December - Happy ??? - Make a card to celebrate your favorite holiday in December. It could be Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day...you decide but make sure you tell them what you are celebrating.  Just for fun (optional, in no way mandatory), add sparkle to your card.  I am (obviously) celebrating Christmas and I have loads of sparkle on my card.

Splitcoaststampers - Ways to Use it - WT667 - Colouring is a perfect way to relax and get rid of all that stress, so take out your favorite colouring mediums....markers, coloured pencils, watercolours, chalks...anything you can use to color.  To make this a little more challenging, you must use at least two different colouring mediums on your card or project.  I used watercolour pencils, Tombow pens and chalks.

The image is by Lili of the Valley (UK) and is called 'James Bear in the Snow' which I bought as an unmounted rubber stamp quite some years ago.  Although you can't get the rubber stamp any longer, you can purchase it from LOTV as a digi image or a pre-coloured printable image.

I stamped the image with Ranger Archival Potting Soil ink and coloured it with a mix of Faber-Castell + Lyra watercolour pencils and Tombow pens.  I paper-pieced the scarf and hat using Bo Bunny Snowfall designer paper from their 6" x 6" pad and added a small amount of shading using a grey Tombow pen.  After fussy-cutting the scarf and hat, I went around the edges with a Pitt Artist Walnut Brown pen to hide any imperfections in my cutting.  I lightly coloured around the image using Kaisercraft blue chalk. The image and teal circle layers were diecut using my Big Shot and Lifestyle Nesting Circle dies.

The designer paper on the card base is also from the Bo Bunny Snowfall collection and is a 12" x 12" sheet called Blizzard.  This collection is from 2011 and is therefore long-retired yet it still remains one of my most favourite all-time releases.  The touches of glitter are so gorgeous!  The teal cardstock on the card base was trimmed to a 1/8" using my Perfect Layers Tools.  I glued the finished card to a white card base using Tombow Mono Multi glue which gave me enough wriggle-time to get the card exactly where I wanted leaving a very small white border.

The sentiment is from Penny Black from their Holiday Snippets set which has tons of very small sentiments that are easy to add to a card when you don't have alot of room for one. It was stamped using Versamagic Ocean Depth chalk ink and diecut using a Lawn Fawn Slide-on-Over die for the sentiment as it was the perfect size.  I added a blue Couture Creations gemstone either side of the sentiment.

The snowflakes were diecut from white glitter cardstock using a Kaisercraft Mini Snowflakes die set which has 8 different-sized snowflakes and two different-sized 8-pointed stars.  I added a blue Couture Creations gemstone to the snowflake centres.  I glued just the centres of the snowflakes down using Tombow Mono Multi glue and bent the arms up a little to give the snowflakes some dimension.

I tied on a teal organza ribbon from my stash, added Fray Stop to the cut ends to stop them from fraying then added a diecut star using teal glitter cardstock from the Kaisercraft Mini Snowflakes die/star set and glued it on using Fabric Glue.

I glued some Stampendous Cotton White Fun Flock mixed with a little bit of white glitter to the teddy bear's hat plus the snow on the ground using Tombow Mono Aqua glue.  The falling snow around the bear is Nuvo Glitter drops in White Blizzard which gave the snow a lovely sparkle and added a bit of dimension.

Here is a close-up of the sweet little teddy bear:


Lastly, I used a Pitt Artist Walnut Brown pen to go over the eyes and nose to darken them up a little then used a white gel pen to add some highlights.
