Snow Much Fun | My Favorite Things Release

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a card made with a really cute new set from My Favorite Things called Snow Buddies. Their new release just came out and it has lots of goodies in it. Be sure to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a $100 gift card for My Favorite Things! (See MFT blog for details)

I stamped a bunch of the images from the Snow Buddies stamp set onto some Neenah classic crest solar white cardstock with Gina K Designs jet black ink and then colored them with Copic markers. Once the coloring was done I cut the images out with the coordinating dies.

I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth paper to 9x4 and blended along the top of it with Spun Sugar and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide ink. I then adhered that panel onto a card base. I free-hand cut some snowy hills out of Bristol Smooth paper and adhered them to the card with liquid glue and foam tape.

I put the card into my Misti tool and stamped a sentiment from the Snow Buddies set onto the blended area with VersaFine onyx black ink. I then adhered all of the colored in characters with either liquid glue or foam tape.

For the finishing touches I first used a white gel pen to add details and highlights to the characters. I also used the gel pen to add a dashed line along the border on the top of the card. I went over the top of the snowy hills with a glitter brush. Finally I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on different areas of the card and went over it with glitter to make the card look even more snowy.

This kit comes with everything you need to make a slider card with a wreath that can be decorated for many different seasons/occasions. I chose to make a snowy Christmas wreath for my card. I created the wreath by first using the half ring die in the kit to cut two half rings out of kraft cardstock. I then glued those two pieces together to make a complete ring. Next I die cut a ton of leaves out of Midnight Green cardstock and a few of the snowflakes out of white glitter cardstock.

I laid all of the die cut leaves onto a craft sheet face up. I then used a paintbrush to splatter some Pearl Aqua Pigment paint onto the leaves. Once the paint was dry I glued all of the leaves and snowflakes onto the ring to make my wreath. I cut a circle out of some vellum and adhered that to the back of the wreath. For the sentiment I chose a stamp from the Tiny Words Christmas stamp set and stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink on kraft cardstock. I then cut the sentiment into a strip and adhered it to the vellum in the center of the wreath.

I die cut the front panel of the card out of some patterened paper from Honey Bee stamps. I made sure to use the insert die as well to cut the slider area on the card. This also adds score lines for folding to help move the slider. I cut the inside panel of the slider out of Midnight Green cardstock and glued the bottom edge of it to the bottom of the cut out section on the front panel. I then glued the entire thing to a kraft card base, making sure not to glue the slider area so that it is free to move.

To finish up this card I added some string to the top of the slider (the die cuts a hole for you) and I glued the wreath to the slider. When you pull the slider the wreath pops up on the card. I love this kind of card, I think it makes a beautiful decoration for the recipient!

Christmas Gift Card Holder Bag | Spellbinders Past Club Kits

Hey guys! Spellbinders is having a promotion right now on some of the past club kits so I thought I would use some of them to make this really cute Christmas gift card holder.

The kits that I am using are the For You Gift Card Holder (from April 2019) and the Festive Wreaths Slider Card (from June 2019) Click here to check out the promotion! Be sure to log in if you are a club member to see even bigger discounts! (Promo ends 10/20/19)

I cut the front and back of the holder out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and folded along the score lines. I then added double sided tape to the flaps that the folding created and stuck the two halves together. I cut the handle out of a lighter weight white cardstock and glued it on with liquid adhesive. I used tweezers to hold it in place while the glue dried.

Next I die cut the insert for the holder out of red cardstock and fan folded some white wax tissue paper. There is a die in the kit to cut paper to look like tissue paper, but I thought it would be fun to use real tissue paper. The insert has a little slot that you put the wax paper through and a flap that folds down to secure it (see video). I then die cut the slots for holding the gift card into the insert.

There is a cute little tag in the gift holder kit and I cut that out of red cardstock and glued a snowflake on it. The snowflake comes from the Festive Wreaths kit. I then tied the tag to the handle on the holder with red and white twine.

The Festive Wreaths kit comes with three little snowflake dies and I cut a bunch of them out of white and glitter white cardstock. I drew a circle onto the holder using a die as a template. I then used that circle as a guide for gluing down all the snowflakes.

For the sentiment I picked out a stamp from the Tiny Words Christmas stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I embossed it in white onto some slate cardstock, cut it down into a strip, and popped it up in the center of the wreath with foam tape. I glued a bunch of raindrop embellishments to the wreath to kind of look like ornaments. The last thing I did was go over the sentiment with my Wink of Stella glitter brush to get the project even more sparkle!

Snow Much Thanks Distress Oxide Background | Simon Says Stamp

Hey everyone, today I have a card that I made using the stamp set from Simon Says Stamps January card kit.

1.jpg

I created the background by blending Distress Oxide inks onto Bristol Smooth paper. I used the colors Black Soot, Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and Tumbled glass.

3.jpg

I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes on the background with my MISTI tool in embossing ink. First I embossed with Alabaster white embossing powder and then I embossed more snowflakes with Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder.

2.jpg

I stamped the snowman on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Gina K Amalgam ink and then colored it in with Copic markers. I cut him out using my Scan N Cut. I stamped the small thanks sentiment on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and embossed it in white. I free-hand cut out the little snowy hill out of some white cardstock and blended a little Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink along the bottom edge to give it some shading.

4.jpg

I adhered the background to an A2 size card base with my ATG gun. Next I glued down the snowy hill and the snowman on top of that. I popped up the tiny Thanks sentiment with some foam tape. I went over the sentiment strip and some of the snowman with my Wink of Stella glitter brush. I also added some highlights to the snowman with a white gel pen. To finish up the card I added some sequins.

No-line Coloring with Colored Pencils | Colorado Craft Company

Today I did some no-line coloring with an awesome stamp set from Colorado Craft Company.

1.jpg

I stamped the image on Slate gray cardstock with embossing ink. I then colored it in with Prismacolor pencils.

3.jpg

I blended around the edges of the gray cardstock with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink to create a vignette. I embossed the sentiment with Alabaster white embossing powder from Brutus Monroe.

2.jpg

I adhered a piece of Desert Storm cardstock to a card base and then popped up the gray panel onto that with foam tape.

4.jpg

For finishing touches I added details with a white gel pen, some Wink of Stella glitter, and a border around the Slate cardstock edge.
