From Bud to Blossom by Jean Okimoto

P1030655

Balance the bold dimensions of the beautiful Anemone Bloom with a slimline card and a simple greeting from the January Anemone Collection.  Soft blues can be frosty winter pastels - or in anticipation of spring - just 5 weeks away!  Hi, Jean here with a simple  thank you card from our latest release.

P1030685

Cut Anemone Bloom from a light blue 6x6 in the Ocean Blue Collection.  Color the stamens with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair - we're using just the two larger pieces here.  Color the sepal with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Set them aside to dry.

Cut white cardstock with the die from the Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder and Die Set. We're using just 2 of the diecuts here - save the others for another project.  The tray's diecuts are perfectly-sized for several of the new rub ons.  

Cut the bud from the new White Anemone Rub Ons - leave a generous border around the design.  Carefully remove the paper liner.  Gently tap the design onto the small rectangle diecut. Place it between two layers of printer paper and run it through your diecut machine to burnish the bud onto the cardstock. (The rub ons set (2 sheets) includes a wood craft stick to burnish the designs if a diecut machine isn't available.)  Carefully remove the frosty plastic layer.

Back to the anemone...assemble the blossom.  Attach it to the larger white rectangle diecut - use foam tape between the petals for shadowy dimension.

Glue two pieces of the same Ocean Blue 6x6 together for dimension and cut the Thank You Debut Script background.  Cut the delicate top layer from white cardstock.  Assemble the greeting.

P1030667

Attach the diecuts to a blue slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - use foam tape for the greeting.  Add blue Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting - Happy Valentine's Day to everyone celebrating tomorrow!

Anemone Card and Envelope
by Anne Thompson

Need a card at the last minute?  Have some of the White Anemone Rub-Ons?  Make a card and envelope like this!

IMG_2850 (1)

I made cards like this yesterday with a group at the senior center here in town.  

These are the materials we used.

IMG_2849 (1)

  • Choose one of the plaid papers from ANEMONE PLAID PP1025.
  • Trim it to 4 X 5 1/4.
  • Add it to the front of an A2 top-fold note card.
  • Cut a piece of white card stock 3 X 4 1/4.
  • Select one of the stemmed anemones from WHITE ANEMONE RUB ONS RUB103.
  • Apply it to the white card stock using the stick provided.
  • Add VersaFine Clair Warm Breeze ink around the edges using a fingertip dauber.
  • Add that panel to the note card.

IMG_2851 (1)

I always like to bring some element from the front of the card to the inside.  We took the piece we cut from the background panel and cut it in half to make two 1" strips.  We added one to the inside of the card along with a smaller Anemone blossom.

0-8 (1)

I also like to add something to the envelope that hints about what's inside.  We added the other strip of paper and one or two more Anemone blossoms or buds to the envelope as well.

0-9 (1)

And that's it.  We chose to use our cards as valentines and added stamped valentine messages inside and out on the note card.  A card like this can be used for so many occasions.

Happy Crafting!  And Happy Valentines Day later this week!

Hello Anemone Rub On
by Trina Pham

IMG_4478


Hello everyone.   The beautiful white/blue Anemone rub on from the current Anemone release was calling my name. 😉   I’ve only ever used rub on sentiments on cards, so having them as the focal point was a learning experience. 😂 

Anyway, I started by trimming the blue plaid pattern paper to A2 size.  Used a rectangle die to die cut from the center of it, then die cut a rectangle frame from Bristol paper.  Adhered the pattern paper and frame onto an A2 size white card base.

 

IMG_4479


Next, ink blended two gradient colours of blue dye inks to the top of the inside frame rectangle piece. and inlaid it into the opening.  Arranged and applied the rub ons onto the card, then die cut the sentiment from gold mirror paper to match the gold in the paper and voila!  Done.  

 

IMG_4480

My biggest take away when using rub ons is to apply and use them on flat surfaces.  I should have left out the frame. 😂   Lesson learned.   And that does it for me.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Cut white cardstock with the die from the Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder Set.  Cut the buds and tall blossom from the White Anemone Rub Ons.  It's a set of two rub on transfer sheets with beautiful floral and foliage images.  Leave a generous border around the designs.  Carefully remove the paper liner and tap the designs onto the white Vintage Tray rectangles.

The rub on set includes a wood craft burnishing stick to transfer the design. You'll also get perfect results using a diecut machine to press the design onto the cardstock - place the cardstock and rub on between two layers of printer paper and roll it through using the plates you'd use for diecutting.  Carefully remove the frosty plastic layer.

Cut a sheet from the Ocean Blue 6x6 Collection to 4-¼" x 5-½".  Spritz both sides with a light mist of water, then emboss it using the plate(s) required for your machine.  Air-dry it if it's still damp, then cut it with the Vintage Tray die. The Ocean Blue set includes several colors to complement the rub ons for custom-colored card fronts.

Attach the rub on rectangles to the blue rectangles.

Cut white cardstock with the Greetings Debut Script background die.  Cut the detailed top layer from the blue Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6.  I love how the tiny dot for the "i" is attached as a drop-down section from the "t" - no tiny little dots here!

Cut a slightly darker Ocean Blue Collection 6x6 with the largest A2 Rectangle Frames die for a perfect fit and smooth edges.  Attach it to a top-folded white A2 card.

Attach the diecuts to the card - use foam tape for the greeting.  Add clear Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut an A2-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

The White Anemone Rub Ons have a soft matte look to enhance your cards.  Use them in groups - or spotlight them individually.  Add one of the 8 new greetings from the collection...and your card is ready to go!

Thanks for visiting...join us again tomorrow for Donna's beautiful new Anemone Collection design.

Here's a simple slimline version of Poinsettia Rub On designs spotlighted on diecut circles.  Accent it with a bright rose-colored  Foil Greeting Tab, Fairy Crystals and Jewels.  Hi, Jean here with a quick design that would also work for holiday thank-you cards with a stamped or diecut greeting.

Cut smooth white cardstock with the 2.25", 2.5" and 3" Circle Basics dies. I keep my Basics dies organized on shower curtain rings from a fabric or home store.  

Cut the Poinsettia Rub Ons - leave a generous border around each design.  Carefully remove the paper liner.  Gently tap the design onto the circles.  Place it between two pieces of printer paper and run it through a diecut machine using the plates you'd use for diecutting.  Carefully remove the frosty plastic liner.

Cut the smoother side of pink textured cardstock with the  2.25" x 7.25" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

Attach the diecuts to a pink slimline card (8-⅝" x 3-⅝").  Trim slightly less than ⅛" from the short ends of a Merry Christmas Foil Greetings Rose (colored) Tab.  Attach the greeting with foamtape.  Greeting Tabs are great for last-minute and/or mass-produced cards.  You'll appreciate the versatile set of 40 tabs - 4 each of 10 typefaces.

Add yellow Bright Jewels to the center of the poinsettia.  Add green Christmas Fairy Crystals for extra sparkle.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Poinsettia Rub Ons have a natural watercolored look and are great for gift tags or holiday treat wrappers too.

Thanks for visiting our blog.  Have a very Merry Christmas if you're celebrating on Monday!

Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments
by Angie Cimbalo

All 3 main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today and I have some fun ornaments I made for Christmas gifts with dies from the newest holiday release and pre-cut wood slices.  Here's a look at my first ornament:

3rd ornament main

To make this ornament, I used the new Poinsettia Rub-Ons directly on to one of my wood slices as seen below:

Prep 1

Prep 2

Once I had the rub ons on the wood slice, I took some brown Distress Ink and added it to the wood edges.

Prep 3

Next I cut the Brilliant Joy die from the Fester Glitter Pack, 2 colors, a silvery gold and dark green.  If you cut both dies from each color, since one die has it's own outline, you get enough parts to make 3 whole Joy sentiment.  I used one and saved the other two for a later project.

Prep 7

Next I worked on another ornament use more of the blue shades of rub on's.  Here's a look:

Prep 4

I basically did the same think on this ornament, just used different colors. On this one I did not add brown ink to the edges, and the sentiment was made from the Glitzy Glitter and Vintage Pastel Glitter pads.  Here's a look at the completed ornament.

1st ornament main

I wanted to make one more ornament so I for this one I used new Aurora Snowflake die set for it.  As you can see below I cut several of the background snowflake from glitter paper.  For this ornament I used only the Vintage Pastel Glitter pad.  I cut 2 from the lighter color and one from the blue and then I cut the intricate center die from the lighter glitter paper.  I glued it onto the blue background with Glossy Accents - this really helps it stick and works lots better than liquid glue on the glitter side.  I added lots of jewels and gems to the main snowflake and then got ready to add them to the wood slice.

Prep 5

I glued the two light ones to each other with Glossy Accents and then the blue one on top of those two using Glossy Accents and then putting something heavy on it while it dried as you can see below:

Prep 6

Once it was dried, I was ready to drill holes in the top of each wood slice and and add a string hanger for each of them.  Here's another look at all three ornaments.

All 3 1

I hope you like the ornament gifts I made for today's post.  I really had so much fun creating them with the new holiday dies from the 2023 Christmas Release.  Be sure to come back tomorrow and every day for more inspiration from the design team and happy crafting my friends!

One More Pretty in Pink Holiday Card
by Anne Thompson

I have one last Pretty in Pink holiday card for this month of October--I'll be switching up colors in November.  This is a very simple quick card using Poinsettia Garland paper, a Poinsettia Rub On, and a few Christmas Fairy Jewels along with a white Merry Christmas Foil Greetings Tab.

IMG-2386 (1)

materials used

to make this card

  • begin by covering a white note card with one of the poinsettia print papers
  • add one of the poinsettia rub ons to a scrap piece of white card stock; trim to 3X4; ink the edges with a pink ink, direct to paper
  • add one Merry Christmas White Foil Greeting tab in the lower right corner after adding a bit of the pink ink on the edges
  • attach that panel to the front of the note card

IMG-2381 (1)

  • place five of the solid gold Fairy Jewels in the poinsettia center

IMG-2386 (1)

Simple enough for creating a number of cards at once--which I did in preparation for this post as I covered several card fronts with papers from the Poinsettia Garland paper pad and then used six poinsettia rub ons on white card stock pieces trimmed to 3X4.  I finished one card to post and with a little ink, greeting tabs, and Fairy Jewels I'll have six more cards ready to go in a jiffy. 

Happy Crafting!
