Cut Wooden Alpha's XOXO from Sunny Orange's pale yellow 6x6 sheet.  Cut the letters again from the dark red sheet.

Let the dies and papers do the work for you when the holiday - or occasion - is almost here. It's easy to coordinate elements and colors when everything is as well-designed as the 2021 Spring Collection is!  It's also easy to have a totally different look with different color combos like peach/pink, bright red/gray or fuchsia/pale pink. Choose the receipient's favorite colors and create a card just for them!

Thanks for visiting - see you again this afternoon with a slimline design from our latest collection...

Double Emboss Gracious Woodgrain
by Trina Pham

FFEC4C9F-0FEE-4B93-8362-CC83FFABB517

Happy new year everyone!  Did you enjoy the Valentine blog blitz this past week?  You still have until tomorrow, January 10 at 11:59 pm EST, to leave a comment on any of the posts for your chance to win the corresponding giveaway.  Today I’m using the Woodgrain Heart die again, which you can win from Michelle’s post yesterday, to create a masculine love card.  Because this die is solid, it was perfect for one of my favourite double embossing techniques using a die and an embossing folder (EF).

Started by opening the Gracious Leaves 3D EF.  Adhered the Woodgrain Heart die with cutting edge facing up onto the flat side of the EF. 

22F38AEA-F234-415B-AE30-E29BEB5AD39D

Secured a piece of mixed media paper over top with temporary adhesive.  This is the die/EF setup for the technique. 

20A93150-966D-471F-A497-AE9DFB03F8BF

Placed an embossing mat then cutting plate on top and ran it through my die cutting machine according to its recommendation.  For a good impression, I ended up adding a couple of shims. Having secured the paper with temporary adhesive in the previous step allows for multiple run throughs.  This is what resulted.

807270B6-DF6A-41BC-ABBE-55ED53156EF9

As you can see, the patterns of both die and EF are now dry embossed onto one piece.  Important things to note about this technique: 1. die must be solid 2. heavy thick paper or cardstock works best 3. do not close the EF.

6D291D2E-4844-4DDB-B476-15BA1883FA2B

To complete the card, the heart was die cut from masking paper and the negative cut piece was used as a stencil.  Blended two shades of brown dye inks to colour the woodgrain heart.  The sentiment was die cut twice from white cardstock and once from dark brown and stacked for dimension.  The butterfly was die cut from white Polished Foil paper and popped up with mounting tape.  Crystal glaze was added to the sentiment for more shine to finish.

66CAF2E2-1199-4538-9AC8-B6FBEB3E147D

And that does it for today.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Collar Technique Masculine Plaids Winter Cards
by Anne Thompson

The Collar Technique is another one I had never tried, so I paired that method with darker plaids, dots and stripes, and cardstocks to create some masculine cards that could be sent any time this winter.  By adding the shirts to a side-folded card I got a less shirt-like look and had some fun accessorizing.  When I'm ready to send them out, all I will need to do is choose an appropriate sentiment to add to the coordinating paper inside.

IMG_2947-ink

how to make a card using the Collar Technique

  • Start with an A2 notecard...I used white ones.
  • Add a mat paper layer 5 1/4 X 4...I used dots papers.
  • Add another layer 5 X 3 3/4... I used a plaid or stripes.
  • Cut plaid paper that coordinates with the layer above and cut it the same size, 5 X 3 3/4.
  • Turn the paper to the 5" side and mark it at 2 1/2 then cut a slit from that mark down 1 1/2".
  • Use a ruler and a scoring tool to make a line that goes from the ends of the slit at 1 1/2" to the corners on the 5" sides and carefully fold back on that line...that will bring the back side of the paper up onto the front like shirt collars.
  • Use small dimensional foam pieces behind the collars so that they roll over a bit onto the shirt.
  • Add this piece onto the mat layer of the same size.

Instead of making this a top fold card so that it really looks like a shirt, I used a side-fold card and turned the shirt on its side for a different look.  Let's see what I did to accessorize each of the cards from this point.

IMG_2950-ink

  • I added a popped up circle cut using the CIRCLE BASICS SET 30087 and a light gray dot paper.
  • I cut the LARGE VINTAGE SLED 94496 from black cardstock and placed it flat on the circle and added a foam dot under the steering bar of the sled which is on the flat paper panel in order to keep it level.
  • I glued some POINTY PINE NEEDLE SPRIGS 94467 on the body of the sled and topped the sprigs with a dotted gray bow.

IMG_2948-ink

  • I cut a circle from the same paper I used for the shirt and collars and popped it up between the collars.
  • I added a black cardstock wreath, the medium-sized one from KNOTTED CIRCLE WREATHS 94482.
  • I cut more Pointy Pine Needle Sprigs using black cardstock and added them and a black bow to the wreath.

IMG_2952-ink

  • Because of the white stripe in the plaid on the collars I used white cardstock for the added elements on the plaid circle--a white Knotted Circle Wreath, Pointy Pine Needle Sprigs, and a tiny satin bow.

The papers I used are from PP1009 CHRISTMAS PLAID and PP1011 GARLAND STRIPES AND DOTS.

One can never have too many guy cards on hand.  And these are so fun!

Happy Crafting!

Add a Penguin to a Stitched Burst Winter Card by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxStitchedBurst, MemoryBoxCircleBasics, MemoryBoxSnowglobeBackerSet, MemoryBoxBerryWreathClearStampAndDieSet, MemoryBoxFrostedGlitterPad, StitchedCards, PenguinCards, HandmadeHolidayCards, PenguinCards, JeanOkimoto, VersaFine

A very cool little penguin from the Snowglobe Backer die set joins the Stitched Burst on a contemporary slimline card for the holidays.  Frosted Glitter Pad accents add a bit of sparkle.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another holiday design - and more stitch therapy!

Prep the Stitched Burst die by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the tiny dot offcuts.  Cut it from kraft cardstock.

P1000900

Here's a tip - round the corners of the cardstock so the extra floss doesn't get stuck on the corners as you're stitching.  (Yes, it would be smarter to precut the circle - but I wasn't sure if I wanted a circle, square or octagon when I began.)  Stitch it with black floss - tape the ends of the floss on the backside with Scotch Transparent Tape (Magic Tape might tear).

P1000901

Stitch it with white floss.  

Stitch the final starburst with red floss.  Cut it with the 3" Circle Basics die.

Cut the penguin from white and black cardstock. Define the eyes with a paper piercer or skewer. Cut the flippers from orange cardstock.  Cut a scrap of orange cardstock, place it under the white diecut and mark eye positions.  Color the eye markings with a black marker.

Stamp the greeting - from the Berry Wreath Clear Stamp and Die Set - on a strip of red cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine.  

Cut a ¾" x 3-⅛" strip of the black sheet from the Frosted Glitter Pad.  Cut a ¾" x 3-¾" strip of green cardstock.  Punch ¼" dots from the Green Frosted Glitter Pad sheet. 

Attach everything to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  The red greeting strip is very wonky and the green strip extends above the top edge.

Don't be intimidated by Memory Box stitching dies - they're easy to use, versatile and will be great for cards throughout the year.  Stitched Burst can also be a sun, medallion, fireworks - even a flower.  Experiment with different threads, colors and patterns.  It can be a great stress-reliever and create a feeling of accomplishment when you add that final stitch!

Halloween Box Card
by Trina Pham


C13D9FAC-F20F-4468-8DCD-9AAEE7AC066E

Hello there.  Halloween is not very big here in Canada, so I don’t make Halloween cards, but I made an exception today. 😂  With so many great Halloween products in the Christmas collection, I wanted to have some fun and make my very first box card!  This is a modified version without the flaps.  There are dies available, but with some simple cutting and scoring, you can save money and make a box card to whatever size you want.

I started by creating the box card base.  Two strips of black cardstock were trimmed to 1.5” x 6”.  Scored each strip along the long side at 1.5” and 5.5”.  Add strong adhesive to the 0.5” tab and attach them to form a 1.5”W x4”L rectangle.

A4AE5CDC-5E00-45D8-A704-FF4587A26BED

Adhere a 4.25”x4” black piece to the back of the rectangle box to complete the base.

373BF2CB-EB8C-4FB4-9A71-5CB1C61E3B12

The strips inside the box to which elements attach to are 1”x 4-15/16” pieces and scored at 0.5” from both ends.  I initially had them straight, but switched them out to a Wild Grass border to give it some interest.

A8574318-BDAA-4F7B-948A-F42FF2FBB384
 
Next, a piece of Bristol paper was trimmed to 4”x3.75”.  A circle mask for the moon was adhered to it and Willted Violet and Dusty Durango distress inks (DI) were blended on with blender brushes.  Removed the mask and blended Shaded Lilac DI to cover the moon.  Flicked on some water and dabbed off with a paper towel to give texture to this background.

4ABF8D3E-90B4-4A41-9E7A-B7D4CF245863

Another piece of Bristol paper was then trimmed to 1.25”x3.75”.  Applied Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn DIs to it with blender brushes.  Stamped the sentiment from Halloween Pumpkin in Archival Black ink. 

7D7C6CFB-46DB-4B5A-A896-593BD85C3D60

The pumpkins were die cut from white card stock and colored with Copic Sketch markers. The rest of the die-cuts were die cut from black and/or dark gray cardstock.   Yellow cardstock backed the house to show light through the windows.  A strip of acetate was used to suspended the front large bat.  All supplies are listed below.  The finished box card size is 4” Wx1.5”Dx4.25H.  When collapsed, it fits easily into an A2 sized envelope.  When mailing it, I suggest placing a piece of cardstock on top to protect it.

56D8C4D2-FEEE-4913-89CF-2FB40684006B

I think I’m going to send this to my 5-year old nephew and surprise him.  He seems to appreciate the cards I give him. *lol*😂   Anyway, that’s it for me today.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful week.

Insets, Offsets and the Single Pine Landscape Frame by Jean Okimoto

A snowy Single Pine Landscape sets the scene for the sweet little bear from the Snowglobe Backer set.  Emboss some snowy accents - and add a new greeting from the Poppystamps Christmas Fun Clear Stamps set.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here - it's plaid time!

MemoryBoxSinglePineLandscapeFrame, VersaMark, Embossing, HolidayDiecuts, TreeDiecuts

Cut Single Pine Landscape Frame from green cardstock, remove the offcut and leave the remainder in the die.  Daub VersaMark through the cutouts on the die and emboss it with white powder.  

Cut the frame again from white cardstock - save the frame for another project  Stamp the great greeting - from the new Poppystamps Christmas Fun set - with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair.  Inset the white offcut into the frame and tape the pieces together on the reverse side. 

CL494

Cut the 6x6 Christmas Plaid sheet with the largest Rectangle Basics die and attach it to a side-folded white A-2 card.  Attach the Single Pine Landscape Frame, offset at an angle.  

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to brown wool-blend felt to stabilize the fabric and keep adhesives from saturating it.  Cut the bear.  Use a toothpick to define the eyes.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind his head for the eyes and nose.  Cut the reverse side of the plaid sheet with the smallest Half a Dozen Eggs die.  The bear die has a debossed center section - but the felt obscures it - so it looks like he's gained some pandemic pounds.  Attach the egg diecut.  It complements the plaid background...and makes him look a little slimmer.

Attach ¼" punched circles of the red glitter sheet from the 6x6 Holiday Glitter Pad.

Inlaid Single Pine Landscape Frame on a Christmas Plaid Background by Jean Okimoto

P1160538 2

Set the Single Pine Landscape Frame into a Christmas Plaid offcut and create a simple guy card for the men on your list.  The card is simple...not the guy!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another 2020 Christmas Collection design for you.

P1160562

Cut the new Single Pine Landscape from Open Studio Watercolor Paper and leave the diecut in the die.  Add more texture by pressure-embossing it using the embossing mat and plates required for your machine.  

Cut the green and white plaid background from the new Christmas Plaid 6x6 set - we're using the offcut here.  Place the offcut in the frame and tape the plaid and watercolor paper together on the reverse side.  Attach it to a green slimline card (3-½" x 8-⅜").  

Cut three of the Singing Birds from the red glitter cardstock in the new Holiday Glitter 6x6.  Attach them to the card - use foam tape for the center and right birds.  

Prep the Celebrate Cursive Script die by rubbing it briskly with a piece of scrunched waxed paper to help release the diecut. Cut Celebrate Cursive Script from the red sheet in the new Polished Foil Pad.  It's easy to cut delicate designs with this special foil and you won't have to remove those stringy threads.  Attach the shimmery greeting to the card...and that's it!

P1160551 2

I love slimline cards and how they can surprise someone who thinks the business-sized envelope they've received is just another bill or "special offer."  See the new dies, printed papers, foil, glitter cardstock, embossing folders and glitter glue here, write your wishlist, then visit or order your holiday designs.

Shadow Stencilling
by Trina Pham

B8790174-83C3-4502-8346-8B33EBDA3045

Happy weekend everyone.  I’m popping in quickly today with an all-occasion masculine card.  I used the Leafy Rows stencil from the 2020 Spring collection and the shadow stencilling technique for my card.

Using a mini blending tool, white pigment ink was applied to the leafy stencil over a piece of Kraft cardstock.  Because it is a pigment ink, I pounced on the ink rather than blending in circles to avoid having the ink seep underneath.  Used a heat tool to dry it.

2056DDD8-9C8D-477C-BD06-3364CDADBD1B

Next, placed the stencil back over the images, then shifted it slightly up and to the left before inking it with Walnut Stain distress oxide ink.. and voila!

A9427F7B-A6EA-4577-B898-0DB2081E4729

For some shine and still keep it masculine, the B-E-S-T Vintage Varsity letters were die cut from black foil paper while the Wishes Jotted Script sentiment was die cut from gold foil paper.  They were mounted onto a vellum circle.

1C5968A7-596F-4EA8-88A6-9F5ECDF30D22

The gold got a bit lost against the Kraft, so a dark brown shadow was added behind to help it stand out better.

FDF0CCFB-2868-4859-8FB9-621DC73A22F8

And that’s it from me.  Thank you for visiting.  Stay home and craft on.

Attach a pair of the new Banded Heart Lockets to the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Outs on a Valentine for your special guy.  Cool, masculine grays and bright reds create a crisp contrast on today's card.  

Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a simple design to start the workweek.  Change the colors and make it a shower, wedding or anniversary card too!

Cut Banded Heart Locket from gray and white cardstock.  Cut two hearts with the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out dies - 2.2" wide from red glittered cardstock and 3.1" wide from the Poppystamps Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape attached to gray cardstock.  It's the perfect washi tape for snow,  confetti or white splattered dots - whatever you need!

Punch a ⅛" hole near the top of the large heart.  Attach the glittered heart to the large heart with doublestick tape.  Attach the white and gray Banded Heart Lockets with gold cord.  Curl the cord.

Pressure-emboss a folded white A-6 card (4-½" x 6-¼") with the 3.1" Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out.  It creates an outline on the front of the card - and frames the greeting on the inside.  Stamp "xoxo" - from the Big and Little Valentines Clear Stamps - with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair in the embossed heart inside the card.

Cut accent strips - ¾" x 3-½" of the gray plaid from the Dashing Holiday 6x6 set, ¾" x 4" of gray cardstock and ¾" x 3-¼" of the dark gray stripes from the Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 set.  Attach the hearts and strips to a white A-6 (4-½" x6-¼") card.

Here's an easy way to prep a self-adhesive greeting.  Diecut Love Airy Script from red cardstock - don't remove the diecut or the offcut.  Place three strips of ⅛" ScorTape or Couture Creations tape horizontally across the back of the diecut.   Run it through the machine again to cut the tape - leave it in the die again.  Flip it over onto the card and use a pokey tool to push the self-adhesive greeting onto the card.  The double cutting process makes it easier to cut completely thru the tape and its liner.  Pressing the delicate greeting directly onto the card keeps it intact, without any distortion or wonkiness.

It seems like 2020 just started - but January's almost gone!  Hope our Design Team's Valentine ideas have helped and inspired you to create special cards for your sweeties.

All My Love Forever
by Michelle Bala

Hello !!! Michelle here!  Funny how we go from Christmas and holiday cards, right to Valentine's Day cards!  I made this card for my husband. I love the teal shades paired with black and silver. I used Leafy Heart Craft Die and die cut it two times, once on copic friendly paper the second on black cardstock.  I laid down a layer of  Copic BG11 than added some darker shades of BG15, BG34 and BG18.  I adhered the colored leaf to the black leaf cluster a bit off set. Add some silver stickles glitter glue and set aside to dry.

1

I inked up my background panel with tumbled glass, evergreen bough, mermaid lagoon and black soot. I splattered some white and black paint. Set aside to dry. Die cut Love Airy Script Craft Die two times, silver and black cardstock. Adhere off set.  I embossed the sentiment from Big and Little Valentine's Clear Stamp Set using silver embossing powder.

I assembled all the elements using foam tape. To finish off I added some silver gems. I love it!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!! What do you think?
