Letters To Santa Mabel Sim NEW Product Tutorials

Santa Claus Says Merry Christmas! by Mabel Sim

September 26, 2017

Hi everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m here to share with you a tutorial with the new Letters to Santa Collection to create a simple Christmas themed frame that is so apt for your Christmas display.

I first start with a 8×8 inches shadow box which I prepped it with an even coat of white gesso. You can also use any white acrylic paint/white opaque paint to replace gesso if you do not own one.

In the meantime, while waiting for the gesso to dry, cut down P2388 Christmas Poinsettia as a base.

I had also fussy cut out my centrepiece for today with P2395 Be Merry. I trimmed out the circle sentiment and mount it on foam tapes to give it some dimension.

Layering is always the key to make your project looks sophisticated. It is actually a very simple technique of arranging your pieces together on different heights. For this time round, I am making use of the rim of the shadowbox to show different layers. I had fussy cut out Mr. Santa from P2389 Dear Santa and stuck it to the bottom corner of my frame.

To balance out the opposite end, I am also adhering pieces from the CT890 Collectables as well as from P2393 Holly & Berries, followed by Christmas streamers from SS347 Sticker Sheet.

Adding pulled cheese cloth will also add some additional interest to the project.

Simply cut down the cheese cloth to tiny bits and tug it gently for the strings to break apart from its usual placement, adhere them to the bottom of your flowers.

Here’s the final look and some close up pictures. :)

Card Making Christmas Jewel Decorative Dies Mabel Sim NEW Product

Cards with Christmas Jewel

August 7, 2017

Hi Kaisercrafters, Mabel here and I’m here to share my first DT post for Kaisercraft!

Christmas Jewel is definitely an unique collection that breaks away from the traditional Christmas colors. I was pleasantly surprised by the looks of this collection and it inspired me to create Christmas cards. It is never too early to start prepping for Christmas!

I had created 2 different cards with the same Kaisercraft supplies.

A simple shaker card will bring some fun to the recipient of the card!

If you realized, I had actually recycled the negatives of the die cutting of snowflakes and used it as the background of my second card!
