Trending – Fun Owls for Scrapbooking

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Karen N here today sharing with you some cards with an “on-trend” animal that I just adore – the owl!  Cut at Home has all sorts of fantastic owls available, and I’ve included a link to them at the end of this post.  Be sure to check them out.  Today happens to be my 50th Birthday.  I’m super stoked about turning 50 as this is the decade that I’ll retire from work and have MORE time to CRAFT!  The only “bit” of a downer today is that my son is so far away (in the U.S. Army).   BUT it makes me happy that he is chasing his dreams, and I am so proud of him!  Still, I miss him…..I didn’t realize it until I put the post together, but you may see that theme in today’s cards!

Now, onto the fun!  My first two cards today use the Magnolia Tilda Owl stamp.  This owl is SO adorable.

Other ingredients for this card includes the BEAUTIFUL Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters paper, Spellbinders Labels Four, Spellbinder Nested Lacy Pennants, a button, some twine, Candi dots, and some markers.  Here’s a fun video that shows how I put together this card.

Here’s card number two!

For this card, I also used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Motif paper, Spellbinders Big Scallop Circles, Circle Dies, Shadowpress Debossing FoldersTim Holtz Distress Inks in Rusty Hinge, Walnut Stain, Worn Lipstick and Mowed Lawn, Timeless Twine, markers and a piece of scrap paper from my hoard.  Note the repeating images that was featured as a trend last month!  Love that!

My final card today uses the Cottage Cutz Sylized Owl.  This owl is so stinkin’ adorable!

Recipe for this card includes Tim Holtz Idea-ology Wallflower paper, Tim Holtz Distress Markers, Circle Dies, Unity Stamp Company sentiment, and a doily.

Hope you enjoyed these fun owls.  If you love owls as much as I do, check out the other Ca-Ute owls at Cut at Home by following this LINK!  Eek, so many FUN choices!

Craftily yours,

Spellbinders Labels Forty-One and Forty-Two Card Ideas

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Spellbinders has a large assortment of dies, as you probably already know and their label collection is one of my favorite and I feel the most versatile especially for the Cardmaker.  The dies are always sorted per category and these new Labels Dies are part of the Nestabilities collection.  This means they will nest well within one another to add dimension and pop to your card fronts, layouts, mini albums or whatever you decide to use them for.  I’m going to share three cards and three ideas to get your creative juices flowing.  At the bottom of this post will be the complete list of all the dies and supplies I’ve used from the store.

Labels 41-42

I’ve used the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-Two, Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One and Decorative Elements Labels Forty-One.   At the time of this post these dies are pre-order only, so you’ll want to get your orders in now so that once they hit the store shelves they’ll be shipped out right away to you.

Labels 41-044

This first card measures 5″ square.  I’ve used a combination of pink and white cardstock along with Spellbinders Labels Forty-Two, Decorative Accents dies.  This cuts the large white base and the pink solid in the forefront.  Along with my Sizzix Big Shot I also used the Sizzix Magnetic Plate for Wafer Thin Dies and the Spellbinders Tool ‘n One.  These two items just make your die cutting so much easier.  Oh yes I used Scor-Pal’s No More Shims rubber mat to help even the pressure as I emboss the cut outs.

Labels 41-047

This beautifully intricate accent is cut from the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One.  You may have to use paper shims as you cut and rotate your plate after each pass until you get all the details cut completely.  But oh my isn’t it worth it? Check out more spellbinders card ideas on http://www.pinterest.com/cardmaking/!

Labels 41-051

This card base was cut with Spellbinders Labels Forty-Two, as you watch the video I’ll show you exactly how to create this fantastic card base from your die.   The beautiful center is cut using Spellbinders Decorative Elements Labels Forty-One.  See how all these dies compliment one another adding another layer to your card.  This card starts with the standard A2 size card base, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ but once you cut the decorative shape to the edges your card goes down to about 4 1/4″ square.

Labels 41-056

The last card uses all the dies in the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One.  I’ll show you how to cut them all at the same time on the video.  You also can see the difference of using one color, like this card, as opposed to the pink and white combination in the first card.  It just depends on the look you want to achieve.  This is the largest card and measures 6″ square.  Any decorative paper on the cards was cut from Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms 12×12 paper collection.  I hope you’ll come follow along on the video, I’ll share lots of ideas and more photos.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Classic Sunflower Collection by Heartfelt Creations

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

I am so excited to share the new Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower collection of stamps, dies & paper!! These are some of the most beautiful and high quality stamps around! I love the detail that each one of them have! If you have not worked with Heartfelt Creations then you will definitely want to give them a try! The stamps come pre-cut, and mounted on a cling foam, which can be used with an acrylic block, after removing the paper backing, or by themselves if you do not have an acrylic block…either way results in a beautifully stamped image! Heartfelt Creations offers card kits, dies, stamps, and paper that all match the collection. There are lots of coordinating stamps, which would be great in making a scrapbook, set of note cards, or a mini album! By having the coordinating stamps, it does the work for you!

These are just a few of the new collection that are out! I’ve used watercolor pencils to color some of these images & they turn out so beautiful! These would also look amazing with Copics, or Distress markers!

The set’s shown here are the coordinating stamp sets that match beautifully with the Classic Sunflower. There is also a Spellbinder die by Heartfelt Creations that will cut the Classic Sunflower stamp out perfectly:

Cut At Home Journal 017

I made a journal, using a (ugly) journal I got from a garage sale for $0.10. I took the journal a part, to use the lined paper that was inside. I cut some chipboard, and covered it with the gorgeous 12×12 paper collection. Using Mod Podge, I adhered the paper on, and distressed the edges first with Tim Holtz distress paint in Vintage photo, then followed up with Vintage photo ink. I added a tag from the paper collection, along with a ticket onto the front of the journal. I placed a few of the Sunflowers that I cut from the Spellbinder die, and colored. It turned out beautiful & was quick to make!

The paper in this collection is stunning! Plus I love they give you tags, border strips, frames & lots of cut-a-parts to use! Check out my video for up close photos of each of the stamps, the die, and my journal.

Silhouette Vinyl and Heat Transfer paper – Deal of the Week!

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Hello scrappers!

We are clearing the decks for all the NEW Silhouette America product! I know last week I told you the new vinyl and heat transfer paper was in stock. Well…I got my order and it wasn’t in the box. I was passed incorrect (albeit hopeful) information which wasn’t true, so I apologize for that! The good news is it is on its way and that means I have to clear out the discontinued stock. So the Deal of the Week is select vinyl and heat transfer from Silhouette at 30% off!

The VIP codes for September are SEP432 for Spellbinders and SIZ9SE for Sizzix and Tim Holtz Sizzix.

When I got into work this morning, I had a pleasant surprise waiting for me from Spellbinders. Their new Create-A-Flower and Pretty Petal Die D-Lites are shipping this week! You see the video of the new Cherry Blossoms on our Youtube channel. Here is what the project looks like:

They look so real!!

Other new items I am introducing this week is the Pink Lemonade collection from Magnolia. Tilda is dressed in her best summer finery and you will love this stamp collection.

Isn’t she adorable!

Another item I am really excited about is the Darice Embossing Essentials dies! We all LOVE their embossing folders and these dies will compliment the EF’s great! These chemically etched dies come in a variety of geometric shapes as well as other popular shapes like hearts, labels, etc. They can be used in most die-cutting machines and at $13.49 per set, the price point is really a bargain. Give them a try and let me know what you think!

We will be featuring a separate blog post and video on these later this month.

Emma Lou from Heartfelt Creations has done it again with another gorgeous collection of dies, stamps and paper! You are going to really go for the Classic Sunflower Collection! Here is an example of a card from this collection. I love the pairing of sunflowers with denim.  Here is an example of two of the papers.

Makes me want to redecorate my entire house in sunflowers and denim!

For those of you who happen to be shopping this weekend, and noticed our store was empty of all products for a few hours, we had a corrupt file in our product table. It was probably me, as I was loading the new Silhouette vinyl fast and furiously! I take credit for it and offer my apologies to any of you who were inconvenienced. If you happen to be caught by a “Marcie Bug” as I like to call them, let Tristan or Tauna know, and mention free gift in your next order and for your inconvenience, we will add one to your order. The store was still totally safe and secure, it was NOT a breach, just me going too fast! Sorry!

Have a great week! I will see you next Monday with our NEW Deal of the Week and other fabulous new products. Until then, keep watching our blog and youtube channel as my incredibly talented Design Team give you ideas and tips on how to make the most of your papercrafting hobby.

Happy Scrappin!

Changing it Up With Card Fronts

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

First off, I forgot to mention in the video these dies are ‘Pre-Order’ which means they haven’t hit the store yet, but if you like them order them now and they’ll be shipped as soon as they hit the shelf.  OK on with the show folks!  Spellbinders, bless their hearts, have done it again.  They are just so darn creative.  They have some new dies in their Shapeabilities Collection called Card Fronts.  I’m going to introduce you to two of them today.  They are super!  The 3 F kind – – – Fast, Fun and Fantastic! SEE VIDEO!

Card Fronts

I made one using each of the dies I have the Spellbinders Contemporary Strip and the Leaves A Fallin’ Card Front Dies.  I used Graphic 45’s Time to Celebrate  and  Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed paper collections along with some solid cardstock for my card bases.  Both cards are standard A2 size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

Card Fronts-001

These dies cut a decorative panel (which you can emboss for more detail) that fit directly on your A2 card front.  Or, if you don’t use the outer die to cut it out you can use a paper trimmer to trim to a custom size.  That’s what I’ve done on the Get Well Card because I was using a scrap of paper that didn’t quite fit the width of the die.  So I just used the inner panel for the decorative elements, embossed it and then cut it with my paper trimmer leaving the top edge wider than what you’d get if you used the die mat frame included.  I also snipped off the lower portion below the last row of circles.  So don’t be stuck in the ‘do it as it shows it’ puddle, change it up to fit what you have or the look you’d like to achieve.

Card Fronts-010      Card Fronts-002      Card Fronts-005

Using the Spellbinders Die D-Lites Sentiments 4 I added the script ‘thinking of you’ and ‘get well’ to each card.  These are fantastic word sentiment dies that cut easily and pop out with no problem at all.  You can always add some glitter and/or Glossy Accents to give the words more zip and pizzazz.  The last die I used was the  die-namites ‘Lovely Grass for the inside.  This is a darling die and I cut it down quite a bit to fit the card base.  I haven’t tried it yet but they say among other things you can cut even thin chipboard and cork sheets.  So I hope you’ll check out the card fronts and watch the video too, I’ll walk you through the dies and the construction of the cards to inspire you to change up your card fronts with the new Spellbinders Shapeabilities Card Front Dies.

Go ahead and check out my video as well if that helps!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Festive Christmas Collection by Heartfelt Creations

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Today I want to show you the new holiday collection by Heartfelt Creations.  It is called “Festive Christmas Collection“, and is just beautiful.  The collection includes six stamp sets and a paper pack.  With them you can easily make some beautiful cards that your family and friends will treasure for years to come.

warmest wishes  nativity

These are five simple cards that I created using the Festive Christmas Collection stamps and papers.  Don’t you just love the vibrant colors in the cardstock?  With the cardstock collection alone there are many different cards or scrapbook layout pages that you could make.  As usual, they’ve set up the paper to make quick card fronts, and quick layout pages.  The cards are in various sizes, so there should be a size/shape to suit everyone.  There is not a die specific to this collection, but Heartfelt recommends the Luggage and Tags die set, and any of the Cut Mat  Create dies (these are not needed, but will make the cutting/layering much quicker).  Please see this short video for a closer look at the stamps and dies that are a part of the Festive Christmas Collection.

My first two cards feature two of the card fronts available in the paper pack.  I simply trimmed them to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″, added a brushed gold layer (a little over 4″ x a little over 5.25″) and a red or green background layer cut 4.25″ x 5.5″.  I added a die-cut sentiment using the Die-Versions Sweet Wordlets (I love these dies!).  To save paper, I cut the sentiment from the center of the brushed gold layer (just be sure that the other layers will cover the remaining hole).  I used my clear Wink of Stella pen to add some glittery effects to the cardstock (you can’t really see it in the video, but this adds a nice touch), and added ribbon/embellishments as shown.  Too easy!

peace doves  lantern

The middle card uses one of the journaling cards found at the back of the paper collection.   I stamped the “Festive Notes” stamp in black on dark green paper (cut 3.75″ x 5″)  to create the background paper for this card.  I added two more layers, one off-white (4″ x 5.25″) and one dark green (4.25″ x 5.5″).    I added some clear Wink of Stella to make the ornament and poinsettia sparkle.  Gold ribbon and rhinestones finish the card.

The “Warmest Wishes” card features words isolated from the “Festive Christmas Background Stamp“.  To do this, I stamped the appropriate section of the stamp on a scrap of off-white paper.  I fussy cut the words “warmest wishes”, and set it aside.  The patterned paper is one of the 6″x6″ versions included in the paper pack.  I trimmed it to 3.75″ x 5″.  The other two layers are cut 4″ x 5.25″ (ivory) and 4.25″ x 5.5″ (green).  The poinsettia is made using the “Christmas Poinsettia” stamp set (part of last year’s Season of Joy collection) and is cut using the Sun Kissed Fleur die.   A red bow and ribbon finish the card.

warmest wishes

The last card features an ornament from the “O Little Town” stamp set.  I stamped it in gold ink on ivory paper, and fussy cut it.  The first layer is cut 3.75″ x 5″ and embossed using the Sizzix/Stampin’ Up “Petals a Plenty” embossing folder.   The middle layer is cut 4″ x 5.25″, and is brushed gold.  The base layer is red, and is cut 4.25″ x 5.5″.   The over-size red ribbon and bow finish the card.

nativity

These were very easy cards and were quite simple to create.  What a great collection!

Heartfelt also makes a Festive Christmas Card Kit that gives you the items you’ll need to make five cards.  That is another great way to experience this collection.
