Deal of the Week – 40% off Magnolia stamps and dies!

October 20th, 2014

Hello Scrappers! Another week another deal!

The Cut@Home Deal of the Week is 40% off select Magnolia stamps and dies! The Magnolia stamps are from Sweden and feature Tilda, Edwin and the many furry friends. The best way I can describe the Magnolia style is they are reminiscent of Precious Moments and Holly Hobby figurines from my youth – only much cuter! You can find Tilda doing all kinds of fun things, and celebrating different seasons, holidays and special occasions. There is a Tilda stamp for EVERYTHING! Take a look:

Keeping Tilda in good company, is the dashing Edwin!

And where would Tilda and Edwin be without their friends!

Magnolia-Puppy-horz

 

 

 

 

 

 

Magnolia stamps also have scenery and sentiments that coordinate beautifully with their stamps. One of my favorite looks is putting a sitting Tilda on a fence. Sooo adorable!

Magnolia also has a collection of dies called DooHickeys. These dies are compatible in most your leading die-cutting machines. Here is a sample of those:

Magnolia-Spruce-Twig-horz

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are so many possibilities with Magnolia stamps to customize just the right project. So take advantage of our Deal of Week, and stock up! And if you find a Magnolia stamp or die that is not on special that you just gotta have, then use your 20% VIP coupon!

Happy Scrappin!

Tim Holtz Distress Ink Techniques

October 20th, 2014

Happy Monday, I cannot believe it is already the middle of October. That means that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Today I am going to show you a couple of techniques with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and show how to make some lovely Thanksgiving Napkin holders. This was such a fun project, a little messy, but I think we have all had inky fingers at one time or another!

IMG_0861

I made four different napkin holders/rings using a couple of techniques demonstrated in the video above. The first thing I did was use my Silhouette America Cameo to cut out my circles and images that are available for download at www.silhouetteonlinestore.com, I also cut the circle pattern I used for the base of the napkin holder on the Silhouette. I used three different colors of card stock, a off white – cream color, yellow and brown. The yellow has a raised dotted pattern and is a Bazzill card stock.

When I had all of my images cut I started to play with my techniques, that is when I created the first napkin ring. I used the Darice Dot Background for the pumpkin image, I also cut a circle a little larger than the inked circle to adhere the inked circle on, it makes the napkin ring a little sturdier and it also covers up any ink that you get on the back of the inked circle piece. Once I had everything adhered to my circle I glued the bases by matching up the ring pattern, then I used the same glue to adhered the circle to the base. I also used glossy accents to dress it up a bit.

The second one I used the same techniques, just a different embossing folder and image. I used the glossy accents again as well as a little pearl for the Turkey’s eye.

Here is a look at the first two Napkin Rings:

The third one was really fun, the first part of the technique is the same as in the two above, but next you use a mask to cover part of the image once it is dry, for my mask I used some old stickers that have just been laying around. I love how this technique turned out! To finish this one I inked around the edge, mounted it on the brown circle, added a sentiment sticker and the napkin ring base.

Finally, for the forth one I used a different embossing folder and image, I love how this one turned out. To finish it off I added a little bling!

Here is a list of everything that I used that is available at the www.ucutathome.com:

TIM19527 – Vintage Photo
TIM27157 – Rusty Hinge
TIM19534 – Walnut Stain

Cottage Cutz Dies

October 17th, 2014

Karen N here from Craftily Yours with a FUN design team project….I am playing with Cottage Cutz Dies!  There are SO many fun sizes and shapes available here at Cut at Home, and I’m showing off a few of them here!

My first card uses Cottage Cutz Teacup & FlowersHeartfelt Creations Sunflower paper, a doily, some sequins and 3 Girl JAM Distressed Lace.  This die is one of the “petite” dies and is the perfect size for card-making.  Many people ask what’s the difference between the petite and the mini.  The mini is smaller and is great for adding fun embellishments or for use in repeating images!  I LoVe this paper and it was perfect to pair with this adorable die.

CAH-cottage1KN

The next card I’m sharing today uses one of the Cottage Cutz Elite Dies, the Stylized Owl. Cottage Cutz Grass Border die,  Graphic 45 Mother Goose 6×6 Paper, googly eyes and some sequins.  For the owl, I cut him with the tan solid from the Graphic 45 paper and colored his beak, feat, branch, wings and tail with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  I also inked the edges of the owl body and tummy cuts with Tim Holtz distress ink in Walnut Stain.

CAH-cottage2KN

The final card today uses the Cottage Cutz Flying Deer die, Cottage Cutz Mini Holly Berry die and Heartfelt Creations Frosty Blanket paper along with some star sequins and twine.  I cut this fabulous deer from a small piece of gold paper in my stash.  I just love him; so much fun detail in his antlers!

Graphic 45 Mixed Media Box, using Tim Holtz Wallflower

October 15th, 2014

Hello! I’m so excited to share my project with you today! I am using a Graphic 45 Mixed Media Box in Ivory. These also come in black, and kraft. This box is 5×5, and has a window in the front. It has a magnetic closure on the side. I’ve already decided I need lots more of these boxes in my stash…there are so many things that can be done with this box!! A mini album would look great in this, an accordion album, or simply a trinket box.

I used a black acrylic paint, and gave it two coats. I love how easily these take paint, no priming necessary.

The paper I choose is Tim Holtz Idea-ology Wallflower.  I love this paper!! In this 12×12 paper stack, it includes 4×3, 3×3, 6×6 & 12×12. I was able to use the 6×6 patterns, which looked great on this box. I simply traced the inside window, and cut it 1/8″ larger, to frame the window. I inked all the edges, using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Black Soot. I’ve also added a G45 Shabby Chic Door Pull.

I wanted this to be a shadow box, therefore I kept the window open. It would be a great place to add transparency, or lace.

I added lots of pretty flowers from my stash, and a beautiful saying that I printed out. The recipient can add a 2×2 photo, next to the quote, if they’d like.

This really makes a great decorative element to a shelf, or a coffee table. This would also make a great box to hold an album, or a great wedding gift, with the couples picture in it.

Hope this inspires you to give one of these boxes a try! Thanks for stopping by! If you’d like to see a video showing how I put this together, please see below:
