Woodgrain Mini Slimline Christmas Card
by Angie Cimbalo

3 close best

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here with a mini slimline card featuring woodgrain cardstock and other Memory Box Christmas goodies from the latest release.  Here's a closer look at my card:

To make my card I first cut a piece of tan wood grain panel slightly smaller than my 3' by 6' card base, inked it with Distress Inks in shades of brown and then added it to the card front.  To get the really dark look, I took the ink pad directly to the paper and rubbed the color on.

I dry embossed the poinsettias on two pieces of white cardstock so I could have 3 cut flowers and used the coordinating dies from the Perfect Poinsettia's 3D embossing folder/die set (EF1037) to cut them out.  I also cut some leaves from the Leaf Bunches die set (94745) all from white card stock.  I used alcohol markers and colored pencils to color the leaves and centers of the poinsettias.  I also colored a little strip of cardstock with the same greens to place under the black Christmas Sentiment tab.  Here's a closer look at the details:

Once I was happy with the arrangement of flowers and leaves I started adhering them to the card front, some with liquid glue and others with foam tape.  Lastly I added the sentiment and green strip to the top.  Here's one last look:

I hope you like my card for today.  I've been using the same embossing folder for the last few cards I have posted but it's because I really want to show you how versatile it is and how many different looks you can get with the one folder and die set.  You can check out all the different designs you can create HERE.  There are also rub on transfers that coordinate with the set.  I was fortunate to get to teach a card class at my local scrapbook store and we featured this set to show how many different looks you can get with it.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Come back each day for more inspiration from the design team!  Happy crafting my friends!

Aurora Snowflake Shaker

IMG_3485

Hello there.  I have a super easy white-on-white snowflake shaker card to share today featuring the Aurora Snowflake die from the 2023 Christmas collection.  It’s my first true white-on-white card since I did’t cave and use silver for my sentiment!

Started by die cutting the snowflake opening in the center of a 4x5.25-inch white woodgrain paper panel using the background shadow die.  Adhered a piece of acetate behind it then added foam strips on the perimeter to create the well in which to house the shaker bits.  Add the shaker bits and then seal it in with a piece of cardstock. 

IMG_3486

Die cut the snowflake itself from white glitter paper.  White heat embossed the sentiment onto vellum then punched it out with a 3/4-inch circle punch.  Assembled onto a white card base to finish.

And that’s a wrap.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.IMG_0323

Best Wishes
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_6552

Hello everyone!  Today's card is inspired by all the beautiful autumn colors!  

To make this card card, I started by die cutting the new Gypsy Oak Leaves several times from colored cardstock.  I glued all the outline leaf shapes to the solid leaf die cuts.  

I used the one of the Wrapped Stitched Rectangles to die cut a card panel from the White Woodgrain cardstock.  

Next, I glued my die cut leaves to the panel and spattered it with gold ink.  

I used foam tape to adhere the panel to a white card base.

I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white cardstock and gold heat embossed it.  I inked  the edges of the sentiment strip with gold ink and used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

That's it for today!  Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week!

Pink Christmas Hummingbird House
by Trina Pham

IMG_3067


Hello everyone.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and in support, I created a monochromatic pink Christmas card using several new products from the current 2023 Christmas release.
 
The Woodgrain Bird House, Layered Hummingbird and Classic Pine Needle Sprigs were all die cut out from white paper.  Colored them with Picked Raspberry and Black Soot distress inks (DI) using various blending brushes.  The snowy layer on the roof was die cut a second time from pink Delicate Pastel glitter paper for some sparkle.
 
IMG_3068
 
After seeing a post recently on a crafty friend’s blog, the Torn Paper Mask technique was used to create the cloud background.  This was done by ink blending Spun Sugar DI over the edges of torn printer paper… so no need for a cloud edge stencil! 🤗

IMG_3070
 
The cloud background was then die cut down with the third largest A2 Rectangle Frames die.  Assembled the card onto an A2 size white woodgrain panel and added falling snow with a white gel pen (even on the die cut pieces because snow doesn’t avoid them). 😉  A Merry Christmas Foil Greetings Black Tab finished it off.  

IMG_3069


A quick note…  I will be linking this card to the Pink Christmas challenge at Jingle Belles where $4 per card entered will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Fun creating a pink (or predominantly pink) Christmas card while helping fundraise for the Cure?… it’s a win-win!  That does it from me.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Christmas Chickadees
by Trina Pham

IMG_2786

Hello everyone.  I’m so excited for the current 2023 Christmas release!  So many beautiful products and I can’t wait to work my way through it!  My simple Christmas card today features dies Nestled Chickadee Duo, Vintage Lantern, and Classic Pine Needle Sprigs along with the Shining Star stamp set for the sentiment.
 
All black pieces were die cut from grey cardstock and ink blended/shaded with Black Soot distress ink (DI) to give them dimension.  The pine needles were die cut from light green cardstock and shading added with Rustic Wilderness DI.  The rest of the pieces were die cut from white.  

IMG_2787

For the glow of the light, traced the lantern with a pencil onto a white scrap, fussy cut it out then ink blended it with Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy DI.  Antique Linen DI was also applied to the chickadees’ white bodies.   Having their eyes white didn’t look right, so filled in their eyes with a black Polychromos pencil.  The sentiment was heat embossed on white cardstock with gold embossing powder.  Assembled the card onto white woodgrain paper then mounted it onto a white card base  to finish.

That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Fall Blessings
by Trina Pham

IMG_2627

Hello everyone.  Pumpkins are not just for Halloween. 😉  I’m using the Autumn Pumpkin die from the 2023 Fall collection again, and this time using it to create a fall / thanksgiving card.

All images / pieces were die cut from various white paper and/or cardstock.  Ink blending with blending brushes and distress inks (DIs) were used to color them, except for the pumpkin and leaves.  Copic Sketch markers E41/43, W3 and BG99 were used to color the white pumpkin, while the orange leaves were done by ink smooshing diluted Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge DIs.  The large Layered Daisies were die cut three times and their centers were from Riverbank Large Layered Blooms.

DIs used include:
large daisies - Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, Gathered Twigs
small daisies - Mustard Seed, Wilted Violet
Layered Greenery Stems - Iced Spruce 

IMG_2628

The Mini Varsity Alphabet letters were die cut from gold Vintage Pastel Mirror paper and adhered onto a dark brown cardstock strip.  The background panel is cream woodgrain paper scored vertically at 1” intervals, then an Antique Linen DI cube was dragged direct-to-paper down its length to help bring out the woodgrain texture.  Assembled the card onto a cream color card base to finish.

That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week,

Gracious Floral Birthday
by Trina Pham

IMG_2488

Hello everyone.  I needed a birthday card and created this simple card using all three products from the June 2023 Gracious Floral collection. 

The floral image was stamped with Fade Out ink on white cardstock for a no-line coloring look.  Used the coordinating stencils and a couple of gradient dye ink colors in blue, green and gray to color the image.  Die cut the image out with the coordinating die next, then ran it through the die cutting machine in the coordinating embossing folder.

IMG_2489

Cut the image apart into two, adhered on opposite corners on a white woodgrain panel, and trimmed off the overhangs.  The sentiment from Poppy Stamps Modest Greetings 1 Hot Foil Plate & Die was hot foiled with gold foil.  Die cut it out with the rectangle strip die included in the set and matte it to gold Vintage Pastel mirror cardstock.  Assembled the card to finish.

That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Ghost buddies share the new Large Layered Witch Hat beside a windblown, tumbled cluster of Layered Greenery Stems.  Glitzy Glitter Pad and Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad diecuts -  and purple Autumn Fairy Crystals - brighten this fall scene.  Hi, Jean here with an un-scary design for Halloween.

Cut Layered Greenery Stems from gray cardstock and the black Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6.  Pair the gray and glittered stems.

Cut the ghosts - from the Ghosts in the Forest set - from White Woodgrain paper (cardstock) and black cardstock.  I cut them from different sections of the woodgrain cardstock for contrasting textures.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind their faces.  Layer the black ghosts behind the white ones for dimension and contrast.

Cut Large Layered Witch Hat from black cardstock.  Cut the vertical trim from the Glitzy Glitter Pad black 6x6.  Cut the hatband from the orange Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Assemble the hat.

Cut the 2" wide Nested Globes from a Sunny Orange Collection 6x6.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded 5-¼" square card.  Square cards require extra postage and handling - but some designs just look better on a square.

Add purple Autumn Fairy Crystals for a sparkly contrast.  Cut a 5-¼" square of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting - have a great weekend!

Toolbox
by Trina Pham

IMG_1259

Hello everyone.  Happy Father’s Day to all the fabulous fathers / father figures celebrating today.  Since losing my dad a couple years ago, I have stopped making Father’s Day specific cards, but masculine cards are always handy to have.  I am using the Toolbox 3D embossing folder (EF) with coordinating dies from the 2023 Spring collection to create a simple masculine card good for many occasions.  

The toolbox was created from Kraft woodgrain paper.  The back base layer is 3”x1.5” and the two boards are 3”x0.75”.  Inked and shaded them with Kraft dye ink and/or Gathered Twigs distress ink.  For the handle, started with a 3”x1” piece and die cut with the smallest A2 Rectangle Frames die.  When assembling it, left a small space in between the boards.  Used a circle hole punch to punch from brown cardstock for the nails.

IMG_1260

The tools were die cut from silver Pastel Mirror paper and various color cardstock using the coordinating EF dies.  Ran all the pieces through the die cutting machine in the EF to give them details and dimension.  I think next time instead of die cutting fromin different color cardstock, I would just die cut from white and color the necessary parts in with Copic markers.  The background panel is white woodgrain paper dry embossed with the Toolshed 3D EF.  White heat embossed the sentiment from Poppy Stamps Birthday Blowout on black cardstock, then assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.

That does it for my card today.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful week.

Magnolia Trellis Card
by Trina Pham

IMG_1185

Hello everyone.  I have an all-occasion see-through trellis card today featuring the Marvelous Magnolia 3D embossing folder (EF) and matching cutting dies from the April 2023 Magnolia collection.  I am still loving this gorgeous collection!

Started by attaching an A2 size Bristol panel to a white A2 size top folding card base with temporary adhesive.  Using the 4th Curved Cap Pinpoint die, partial die cut down the middle of the front of the card resulting in these.

IMG_1182

White woodgrain paper scraps were then trimmed to 3/8” wide strips to create the trellis.  Adhered them diagonally to the front of the card base in one direction.

IMG_1183

Then in the opposite direction.

IMG_1189

Added the A2 size Bristol panel from the first step on top to cover up the mess. 😉

IMG_1184

The magnolia flowers were first die cut from alcohol marker friendly cardstock using the Marvelous Magnolia EF dies, then ran through the die cutting machine in the EF to give them details and dimension.  Coloured / shaded them with Copic Sketch markers

Copic Sketch markers used:
greens - YG61/63/67
whites/shading - C00/0/1/2

IMG_1186

Decided to keep the magnolias white and have the color come through the trellis from the inside of the card.  Ombré ink blended Shaded Lilac distress ink onto a Bristol panel, then adhered to the inside.  

IMG_1198

The Hello Daily Script sentiment was in my stash.  It was die cut from black glossy paper and white cardstock.  Assembled the card to finish. 

IMG_1187

I almost gave up on this card as I had a different design in mind… and it wasn’t working out too well. 😂   Anyway, that does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week.
