Here Comes Santa Paws with Free Shipping Promotion

Autumn/Winter 2017 Stampin' Up! Products order from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

Thanks for stopping by and welcome to Mitosu Crafts. The photo above shows the projects we created when we first received our Autumn/Winter products. If you follow us on Instagram, you may have seen a sneak peek of these projects stacked up

We have shared most online, put some up on our display board and used a few for our Cardmaking & Papercraft classes too. There's still some more to show, so here comes our Santa Paws' simple card ideas

Santa Paws by Stampin' Up! order from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

Red Glimmer Paper mats used for the Merry Music DSP, topper and sentiment. Stamped with Archival Black then die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits then coloured with Aqua Painters and Stampin' Markers on Acrylic Block. The Foil Snowflake adds more details around the topper and stands out against the DSP with the help of the Delicate White Doily. Finished with a big bow using the Striped Ribbon

Another idea for a topper with a different image and sentiment that fits the largest circle stitched framelit and Layering Circles, although this one was actually turned into a proper card. The scalloped mat help stabilise the card in place

A simple layout, this time with Silver Glimmer Paper for the mat and the image was coloured with Stampin' Markers. The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig is a great tool for CLEAR Mount or WOOD Mount stamps like Santa Paws for easy stamping placement for a card like this

The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiments and Red Glimmer Snowflake from the co-ordinating thinlits Swirly Snowflakes. Both are available as a CLEAR Mount Bundle only whilst supplies last during the Year-End Sales Event just like most of the Autumn/Winter 2017 retiring products with some at discounted prices

Creating Kindness Blog Hop ~ Because We Care


Welcome to the Creating Kindness Design Team blog hop and thank you for stopping by here at Mitosu Crafts with me Jay Soriano

Creating Kindness Blog Hop using Stampin' Up! Products
#ckdt #creatingkindnessbloghop #stampinup

The design team and our Special Guest Designer, Stesha Bloodhart of Stampin' Hoot have created projects to inspire you and to give back to charities or the community

For my contribution, I have chosen to create 3 Box Sets containing 4 assorted Christmas cards. I will be donating these box sets to Christ Church in Chineham, Basingstoke where Barry & I hold our Cardmaking & Papercraft class every month


We normally sell our handmade cards at the Reception with half the proceeds going to the Church but for these box sets they can either sell them or give them away. The staff have been very welcoming and does a lot for the community so we both wanted to give a little something this Christmas

I used one 12"x12" Designer Series Paper to decorate all the cards and C6 Acetate boxes with various Stampin' Up! products which is normally called a One Sheet Wonder


I cut the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper into four 6"x6" square then cut the following panels (clockwise from top left):

Square 1: Cut in 2" strips, turn 90˚ and cut at 3" which creates six 3"x2" panels
Square 2: Cut at 1 1/2" then at 4 1/8", turn the largest piece 90˚ and cut in 2" strips which creates one 1 1/2" x 6" and three 2"x4 1/8" panels with a small off cut
Square 3: Cut in 1 1/2" strips to get four 1 1/2"x6" panels
Square 4: Cut at 1 1/2", turn largest piece 90˚ and cut in 2" strips to create one 1 1/2"x6" and three 2"x4 1/2" panels

All panels were 'aged' using Sahara Sand and Soft Suede Ink Pads with the Sponge Brayers and Stamping Sponges. I have also used Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape on all cards which you can have a closer look at below


Cardbase embossed using Quilt Top TIEF with a sentiment from Carols of Christmas (cut in Stitched Framelit die) and Night of Navy Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon


Cardbase embossed using Softly Falling with a sentiment from Hearts Come Home, decorated with the co-ordinating Hometown Greetings Edgelits Die and Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon


Cardbase embossed using Holly TIEF, sentiment on Stitched Framelit from the Merry Patterns Hostess set and Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon


Cardbase embossed using Winter Wonder TIEF with sentiment from Merry Little Labels & Everyday Label Punch and decorated with Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon

Creative Circle Blog Hop ~ 3D Church

Creative Circle Blog Hop using Stampin' Up! Products available from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

Thank you for stopping by today and welcome to the Creative Circle Blog Hop (CCDT). You may have started here or arrived from Kate's Paper Creations by Kate Creasey, you will find a blog list at the end of this post so you can check out all of the Design Team's projects

Creative Circle Blog Hop using Stampin' Up! Products available from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

Every 3rd month Liz Holloway designs a pattern for the team to use with their electronic cutters. For this month, we have a beautiful 3D Church to assemble then decorate with Stampin' Up! products

3D Church for the Creative Circle Blog Hop decorated with Stampin' Up! products order from Mitosu Crafts UK Online Shop

I took inspirations from old churches here in England so after creating the structure with thick card, I used Sahara Sand and Basic Gray cardstock to decorate with. I embossed the side panels with the Brick Wall TIEF then sponging Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Smokey Slate inks randomly. I also used the Brick Wall Pattern Party Decorative Mask to sponge Soft Suede on the roof

I haven't used our ScanNCut for a while and it may need new blades but I couldn't get a nice cut on the decorative window panels so I used a die from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits set for my windows. I do love the windows Liz designed and I was determined to include it on my project. I achieved this by enlarging the height to 3 1/4" (whilst keeping the correct width ratio) and using it for my church door instead with a Wood Textures DSP backing!

My first initial vision of the final piece was realistic but a bit bland until Barry thankfully suggested to make it a bit more festive. Out came the Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack, Leaf Punch, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and a lot of Pearl Basic Jewels with most coloured with Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend

The Pear Pizzazz base is embossed with Petal Burst TIEF. It also hides a secret box inside which can hold an electronic candle or you can stash a bunch of notecards in there too. I kept it very plain as it is hidden away and used the box to hide some secret stash of chocolates!

I will need to find a big box to keep this safe after Christmas as we will definitely be bringing this decor out every year
