Yesterday, I posted a brand new StampTV Video featuring one of our new Stamp Sets duos, Snowman Wishes and the new Patterned Paper Pack, Winter Whimsy.
To watch the video, click here: Winter Wishes Card Project
The above card features a fun layout showcasing the little snowman standing next to a window. The window was created using the Silhouette Cameo. The snowman was cut using the Cameo, however, it is very easy to cut him with scissors as well.
I know that some of you don't have the Cameo or a window die. So today, I wanted to show you another way to create this card using card stock, patterned paper and your paper cutter.
Here are some step-by-step instructions to make a window of your own.
White panel- 4 5/8" X 2 1/2"
Red panel- 4 1/2" X 2 3/8"
4 Snowflake panels- 1" X 2"
Try making an autumn card by using autumn leaves paper in your window and some pretty pumpkins or a fun scarecrow for your accent piece. I hope you enjoyed this step-by-step tutorial. The Cameo is a fabulous machine that I highly recommend, however, most of my cards can be closely reproduced using your paper cutter, punches or dies.
Make it a great day and happy stamping!
Very clever for people that don't have machines to cute the window. Thanks for this idea. EdnaReplyDelete
This is what I love about what you do, Gina...you include everyone! I do have a Cameo but sometimes it's faster to do it by hand (maybe I'm just lazy!) so thanks for this tutorial!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for showing us another way to recreate this card!!ReplyDelete
Actually, not everybody has a Cricut, Cameo, etc. I'm not hot on watching you do the computer software..rather see creative techniqueReplyDelete
There are close to 400 videos on StampTV full of creative techniques. I hope you enjoy them! I will continue to show both styles of stamping so that all of our viewers can get some of what they are looking for. :)
Thankyou so much, this is fab.ReplyDelete
Awesome Gina! Love how very creative you are, whether you are using a machine or not! :DReplyDelete
I just love that you show us Cameo user how you do things - BUT you show the rest how to do the same without a cutting machine. That's a WONDERFUL skill! Include all! Thanks for sharing, specially for us cameo users that are just learning!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for also giving hints/procedures for us non-Cameo owners. I lose some interest in websites that seem to be switching from the basic methods, as many do not have the "updated" equipment.ReplyDelete
That is so neat! I would of never known quite how to make that window but with your tutorial it looks so easy. Thanks so much for taking the time to show us who don't have the cameo the easy way to accomplish this. You are the best ever!!!ReplyDelete
Gina, I am so happy you have made this tutorial for those of us who do not have a Cameo. I do have one of the first Cricut's ever made, but I have never used it. (I know, sad). But, I do love my Big Shot and it seems easier to use and faster. But this "old fashioned" way is just right for me! Thanks for sharing this! :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much. I guess we need to learn to think out of the box for ourselves. We should be able to look at a project and think how can I make that with what I have. Thank you for the cute card and instructions you so generously give.ReplyDelete
Thanks for thinking about those of us who do not have a cameo. I love your videos and appreciate you ideas.ReplyDelete
Gina you are the best!!! Thanks for taking time out to show us to make this step by step.I just love this place and recommend it to everyone...I just love this card and can't wait for my order to get to me...Hugs and A BIG THANKYOU:))))))ReplyDelete
Awesome Gina! :)ReplyDelete
I loved your card yesterday but now I can't wait until my snowman stamp and paper packs arrive so that I will be able to make this version. Thank you Gina .ReplyDelete
Thank you for showing this without cameo! my pocketbook won't allow me one.Gina your the best.ReplyDelete
Gina, you are the best! I do have the Cameo and am still learning out to use it. I appreciate your projects using the cameo and also the alternates for not using the silhouette. This is one of the main reasons that you remain my main stamping company and stamping site.ReplyDelete
So thoughtful of you to show how to do this card without the Cameo. I don't have a Cricut or any electronic cutting machine so this is very helpful to me. I love watching your videos. I have a hearing problem and you are so easy to understand. Thanks!!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the tutorial. It is much appreciated!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Gina this is great! I don't have a cameo but I have also been enjoying watching you work with it and seeing how easy it really is. Definately moving it's way up my wish list!ReplyDelete
Thank you, thank you. Its allllll been said before me so allll I can say is thank you for you willingness to go the extra mile (or so) and include those that don't have...ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Gina for this alternative. I loved your video and was already trying to figure out how to make my card without the Cameo, now I know how. I ordered the Winter Whimsy paper pack and coordinating cardstock, but ordered the Tree stamp duo not the snowman. I can see substituting the snowman for the tree, so can't wait to get my order and get working on this card. Again, thank you for thinking of ALL your stamptv members. Hugz and smiles :) :)ReplyDelete
Gina, you are such a gift to the papercrafting/stamping world! Thanks for this tutorial and the exact measurements of the papers...like others, I love how you include and encourage everyone to create.ReplyDelete
I'm saving for a Cameo, but it will be a while. Thank you so much for showing us an alternative for those of us without a Cameo.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Gina, for including us non-Cameo owners. I enjoy watching the creative part of your videos and getting inspired by your ideas. I've been so hoping they wouldn't get so involved with the computer instructions that us old-style or part-time paper crafters would be lost in the shuffle. You are truly a caring and thoughtful person. Thanks again for all you do.ReplyDelete
Muchas gracias, Gina, me encanta nunca se me hubiera ocurrido y no tengo una maquina adecuada, lo intentare.ReplyDelete
When I saw your card my head was already buzzing with ideas on how to make this card with what I have (since I dont own a Cameo). Cant wait to get my shipment....so darn adorable. Thanks Gina. Love watching your videos. You rock!ReplyDelete
Thank you from me, too! I can't afford a Cameo and was starting to panic at not being able to do your cards, so I really appreciate you showing two ways to do things. However, I can't help feeling that the way I do things isn't as "good" as it looks with a Cameo, which is discouraging...ReplyDelete
I am happy that you took the extra time to show us another way of making a window by just cutting and layering. I also appreciate you showing us how you modified the shape that you bought from Silhouette. I have the original Silhouette and the current software works on it too. You can do so much with it but it is so great to learn new tips on using this machine. Thanks for your videos.ReplyDelete
It is so wonderful how you make sure to think of everyone when you create something new Gina! You are so wonderful! Thanks!!!!ReplyDelete
When you first presented the Cameo I felt pressured to buy one. Now thanks to you showing alternatative methods I can relax and wait for Santa Claus to bring me one. Hope you have a good deal around Christmas on your site.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for posting the instructions for your beautiful Winter card. I was a bit sad yesterday when I watched your video and it was for Cameo users only. I, like so many of your other followers, do not own one. Thank you again for keeping all your followers happy!! : )
Dear Gina, Thank you so much for making this video 'for the rest of us.' It's a very pretty & sweet card. Many blessings, RosyReplyDelete
Thanks for providing the alternative method for those of us not fortunate enough to have a Cameo Gina!ReplyDelete
Gina you are SO GOOD! Thanks for thinking of us that don't have the Cameo. I sure appreciate it. Thanks again you are the best!ReplyDelete
Wow, that made it look so easy. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Gina, thank you so much for thinking of us that are not fortunate enough to own a Cameo. Absolutely LOVE all of your videos!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for showing how to make this card without using the Cameo, as I did not know what this was. The window looks so realistic, so thanks for sharing. You could have anything standing in front of it.Shame that we don't have anything like you and your team in the UK. Keep up the good work.
Both the cards you created are wonderful. I am so glad you show different ways to achieve the same great look. Bless you!ReplyDelete
Thanks Gina! I haven't made the investment yet in a Cameo, so I appreciate this alternate version of the card. Got my stamps and paper two days ago and haven't been able to open the box yet! Too much other stuff going on, but tonight they will be getting some play time and the first one is going to be this adorable snowman!ReplyDelete
