Merry Christmas Trio
by Trina Pham

9102579F-F114-489C-B762-16DA4EA1B3C4

Hello everyone.  Christmas is just a little over a month away!  With that said, I am sharing an easy way to create a set of CAS (clean and simple) Christmas cards using products from the 2022 Christmas collection.  

The process was the same for all three cards.  Started by ink smooshing a piece of mixed media paper with diluted Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet distress inks.  Die cut all images from this piece then added clear shimmer to them for some sparkle.  Die cut the images twice from thick white paper to stack for dimension.  Die cut the sentiment from Vintage Pastel Mirror paper and stacked on top of two white ones for dimension.  Assembled so onto white woodgrain paper to finish.

On this first card and just like the large skates in my last post, the Classic Pair of Skates were laced with white baker’s twine.  The heels were die cut from silver metallic shimmer paper and the blades from silver mirror paper.

The next card features the Alpine Snowflakes.

And last but not least, the third card features the Little Trees die.  These are adorable, don’t you think?

Need a bigger tree for the new Layered Birds and Layered Sled?  Create a taller, wider layered pine with glittered, overlapping diecuts of Layered Narrow Pines.  

But first...Happy Veterans Day and Thank You to those who served our country!

Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another way to use the great versatile designs from our Christmas '22 Collection for your holiday greetings...

Cut the large Layered Narrow Pines from a Lush Green Collection 6x6 sheet. Remove the trunks of the two smaller pieces.  Color the remaining trunk with a brown marker.  Overlap and glue the pieces to form a wide "tree."    

Cut the narrow overlays with a green Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad  6x6.  Layer them over the tree.  It's a new tree - big enough for the birds!

Cut Layered Birds from heavy white cardstock.  Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to bright red felt and cut the birds again.  The paper stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from saturating the fabric.  Assemble the birds.

Use a hard rubber brayer to roll Starlite Black Brilliance over a strip of White Woodgrain Paper to define and darken the texture.  Cut the individual strips in the center portion of the  Layered Sled.  Cut the remainder of the sled with the red Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6.  Cut the handle from dark gray cardstock.  Assemble the sled.

Cut two of the small Feathery Snowflake Discs from heavy white cardstock.

Stamp the greeting - from the new Sweet Christmas Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Satin Red VersaFine.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Cut it wit h the 1-¾" Square Basics die.

Attach the diecuts to a 5-½" square light green card.  Square cards require extra postage and special handling, but some designs just call for a square.

Thanks for visiting our blog...keep warm and have a great weekend!

Halloween Popup Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  I have an easy Halloween scene card featuring the new Ghost in the Forest die as a frame to highlight a spooky sky.

Frame:

Die cut the Ghosts in the Forest frame die from an A2 size black paper panel.  Die cut the ghosts from the same set out of white card stock. Cut 2 strips of black card stock to 1" x 5/1/2".  Score each strip at the 1/4" make, flip over and score at the 1/2" mark  and flip back over again and score at the 3/4" mark. Fold the strips with the score marks like an accordion. Glue the 2 strips on either side of the frame, setting something heavy so they stay in place while the glue dries.

A2923F3E-36D8-4A4E-AC7B-0EEF37FAB6BD_1_201_a

Background:

Ink blend Distress Oxide ink Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, and Dusty Concord on a white A2 size panel.  Splatter with water and dry off with a towel. Die cut the Rickety House die out of Kraft Woodgrain Paper. For the roof and door die cut again out of black card stock.  Use your finger to rub on Distress Oxide Walnut Stain ink over the Woodgrain house die cut.  Glue on the roof to the house.  Trim down the lightest yellow from the Sunny Orange paper pad to fit behind the house and adhere.  Glue on the door over the yellow paper. Line up the house on the background panel with the frame. Draw in a path to the door using a black color pencil.  Adhere the house to the background panel.

Sentiments:

Die cut Happy Halloween Posh Scrip bottom die from a matching purple from the Twilight Purple pack and the top from matching orange form the Sunny Orange pack and adhere together.  Die cut the word BOO from the same paper combo using the Twiggy Alphabet die set.  Adhere together.

Happy Ghosts on a Forest Path by Jean Okimoto

The new Forest Path from our Christmas 2022 Collection is quickly becoming a Design Team favorite.  It's great for frosty winter scenes like Sara's and Trina's.  Add wide-eyed ghosts from the Ghosts in the Forest set - and it's a Halloween card too!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here sharing a fall scene with a combo from our Fall and Christmas Collections.

Prep the Forest Path die by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the tiny offcuts around the treetops.  Cut it from black cardstock.

Cut a piece of the dark gray/brown Earth Neutral 6x6 to fit behind the black diecut and attach it.  It's either an old country road winding thru the woods - or a muddy stream after a fall rainstorm.   Attach it to a top-folded dark orange A2 card.

Cut the ghosts from the Ghosts in the Forest set.  Love their faces!  Attach them to the background with foam tape.

Cut Boo Posh Script from black cardstock and the bright yellow-green Lush Green Collection 6x6.

Use a hard rubber brayer and frayed burlap Distress Oxide ink to highlight the texture of Kraft Woodgrain Paper.  Dry the ink and diecut Rickety House - just the main section, not the roof section.  Cut the roof from the dark brown Earth Neutral 6x6.  Cut a scrap of the yellow glittered Twinkling Jewel 6x6 for a sparkly door and windows.

Ghostly Garden Greetings by Jean Okimoto

 

P1019032

Transition from late summer to fall - and Halloween - with ghosts and the new Creepy Cabin.  The floral background from the Garland 6x6 set is perfect for summer, fall and winter projects.  Hi, happy weekend - Jean Okimoto here with another idea featuring a die from our Fall '22 Collection.

Cut the Garland 6x6 floral print with the largest Nested Globe die.  

Cut the Creepy Cabin die from Kraft Woodgrain Paper - leave an extra ⅓" above and below the bottom of the design.  Cut it with a portion of the 3" wide Nested Globe die.  Attach a scrap of the yellow Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad sheet behind the house to illuminate the windows and double-door.

The ghosts and bats are from the popular Haunted Entrance Dome Layer set - a favorite for Halloween cards.  Cut them from heavy white cardstock and Black Glossy Paper (it's very sturdy cardstock that's great for scored and embossed designs).

P1019038

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded green A2 card.  Add the large Clear Fairy Drops.  Cut an A2-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the Fairy Drops and card for mailing.

Thanks for visiting the blog...have a great weekend!

Embossed, stencilled and diecut butterflies highlight a special moment.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a combo of butterfiles ready to celebrate in shimmery shades of turquoise, green and purple.

 

P1018594

Cut the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper with the 3" x 4-¼" Basic Rectangles die.  Pressure-emboss it with Butterfly Coterie Collage.   

Stencil the embossed butterflies with the Butterfly Coterie Stencil and Distress Oxides - skip the two that will be hidden by the Ava Butterflies.  Ink colors used here - wilted violet, cracked pistachio and salvaged patina.

Blend the same inks - plus twisted citron - on a strip of watercolor paper.  Spritz and splatter it with Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Airdry the ink for a few minutes, then heat-set it.  Cut it into 2 strips and lightly ink the edges with Cracked Pistachio.

Cut Ava Butterflies from the turquoise and purple 6x6 sheets in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  Attach them with foamdots.

Stamp the greeting - from the Poppystamps Art Deco Birthday Greetings Clear Stamps - on watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black.  Dry the ink, then trim it with the smallest Banner Sentiment Trio die.

P1018580

Attach everything to an A-6 (4-½" x 6-¼") Cream Woodgrain Paper card - use foamdots for the greeting.

Add Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut an A-6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Butterflies are great for any occasion.  Emboss, stencil and diecut them in coordinating colors - or a lively mix of inks and papers.
